Good luck! We are all here to support you! You and I have about the same amount of weight to get off... Even though this is a pretty rough diet to start ... Once you get past the first few days it will get easier so stick with it! You got this!!!

Good luck to you! We are all here for support! This truly works- stick with it- the feeling you get at being in control is the best! And you truly CAN eat anything and lose weight. When I feel like eating even just one more bite - I pretend that I really DID have bypass surgery and that the extra bite will make me sick- so I stop. Yes it can be hard- but oh my gosh- so rewarding!

Post  sexymetobe on Tue Apr 29, 2014 6:42 pm

Oh my goodness, I am so touched by all of the responses of support. Thank you all for the lovely comments.  Smile 

Breakfast: 4 shot Americano (so just espresso and water over ice).
Lunch: 5 bites bacon - cooked crisp and crumbled and cooked with one egg. (The fat/protein should hold me over until dinner.
Dinner:
I will be back to report my dinner five bite choice!
Thanks again for all of the support; means the world to me! I have such a long way to go with my weight loss, so having so many doing this plan with me, makes it seem very doable!
I plan on drinking lots of water today.

I have a long way to go too! I need to lose at least 110 pounds - but I am on day 5 of this plan and already lost 11 pounds! I am a true believer. This is it. I have done everything else. I have done them all numerous times. I feel like this is a rock solid plan to her us where we need to go. I watched Dr Lewis's video on you tube- and I am more convinced than ever. The interviewer had gone on the 5 bite diet for 2 weeks and lost 20 pounds. He couldn't believe it. When dr Lewis did the diet- he lost like 57 pounds in just over 2 months. It's not necessarily the quickness but the fact that it works. Although the quickness is great motivation - especially for those of us at the end of our rope!

I love tea and this is a fantastic idea. I always feel comforted with a cup of tea in the evening. I don't drink a cup of tea in the evening all the time though. This should help with wanting to munch on something! Thanks for the great tip! Smile

Oh my GOSH! 11 pounds already! YOU ARE A ROCK STAR! I watched the video on youtube yesterday too. I like the fact that it's no counting this or that, portioning on scale; just five bites! Looking forward to this journey with you.

Sexy Me To Be - My journey of losing 140 pounds! Empty Day one over

Post  sexymetobe on Wed Apr 30, 2014 5:08 am

So, it was a bit of white knuckling it, but I managed to stay on plan.
Dinner ended up being cream cheese mixed with Splenda and a squirt of lemon juice. I microwaved it for 12 seconds until warm.
It was like a low carb cheesecake pudding. I wanted the higher fat for satiety for the rest of the night.
I made it in one of the tiniest bowls (usually used for salsa) etc.
I also washed that down with a nice hot cup of green tea. I am having tummy trouble, I have cramping and maybe the "plumbing" is a bit on the bad side since I have IBS and have changed the way I'm eating again to minimal food with primarily low carb items.
I will probably have to add some sugar free psyllium husk two my water twice tomorrow; possibly daily to avoid excruciating tummy problems.
Onward! I step on the scale in the morning....hoping to see at least a pound gone. That would be nice!

Sexy Me To Be - My journey of losing 140 pounds! Empty Day 2

Post  sexymetobe on Wed Apr 30, 2014 7:22 pm

So far so good. I did go to bed last night with extreme abdominal pain.  Crying or Very sad  I knew it was because the "plumbing" was screwed up.
I increased my water by A LOT, and also took some sugar free Metamucil.
Today is still troublesome, but better than last night. I literally had to smash a pillow on my lower right side to be able to get to sleep.
I was down only one pound today.
Breakfast today: Iced 4 shot Americano
Lunch: Boiled Egg with sea salt, bacon and Sriracha hot chili sauce.
Dinner:  Question 

260,259,

Thanks for the kind words and support. Glad to hear the headaches leave. Yes, one step at a time. I have to keep reminding myself I didn't put this weight on overnight! So, it won't come off overnight!

Oh and I also am watching carbs. I just can't help it. I'm very anxious to see if this will work for me. It seems to work for everybody wanting this so badly, and having tried so many things, I'm a littler nervous. how have you been feeling about things now that you have been on it for a few days ?

Hi Annna,
Welcome! How did your day go today?
I spent yesterday extremely ill. I started feeling so very tired and was in bed at 5 pm. I just stayed there trying so hard not to get sick. Then at about 8:30, the fun began. Sad I was vomiting and had a high fever. My back and sides still hurt so bad.
My youngest son is sick too, and I had to take him to the doctors this morning. He has an ear infection and major sore throat. He vomited on the way home from the doctors. We were just quite the pair.
My oldest son fed me a few bites of banana last night and gave me some ice water. Around 5 am, I had one graham cracker and some more ice water as my stomach was burning so bad.
I still have a fever and now have added diarrhea to the party! yay me! Sad
The scale this morning read 255.
Going to head back to bed. I feel super lethargic.
Meals today:
Breakfast: half cup of tea
Lunch: Nothing
Dinner: A little raisin bran and a tad of milk
Too scared to eat as I don't want to get sick again.
