So, bdulong, in about two months time you have lost 12 pounds??? That is awesome!!!

I keep going back and forth from thinking I can do this, to feeling I can't give up the emotional eating and being hesitant to try. My problem is the addiction to certain foods - like cheese - and feeling I don't want to be deprived of them. I can't wait to get the book so I have a little more motivation and fact-based knowledge to help convince my brain to give it the effort you have.

How happy you must be, to be doing things that take you in the direction you want to go!

OK!  After a long bout with constipation, I got some relief from some organic senna leaf tea with ginger and other ingredients that served their purpose.  As a result, my weigh in this morning was 130.8.  Now, I am wondering, what is a good weight for me?  I am 5'5''...well, maybe I have shrunk to 5'4''....I am still on phase 3....kind of nervous to go to maintenance...that is where I have always had the problem.  I exercise almost everyday...walk 1/2 hour, at least, everyday.  I have sagging, flabby skin that I fear will never go away, no matter what I weigh.  Just curious as to what my weight should be.  Thanks
[/quote]

I have read just about your entire journey on this diet, so first congrats to you.  As far as a good weight for you goes - I have always been told that it should be a number you can REALISTICALLY manage and feel good about.  Consider your age and body frame as well - I think you said you are 48, right?  I am also 5'4", with a medium body frame.  I am only 33 years old, but I know that I will never weigh 120 pounds as I did in my early 20's!  My goal weight is 145-150, because that is a weight I feel I can maintain and still feel good about - without having to stress or starve myself to maintain.

Bdulong, this is amazing!!!!! Thank you so much for coming and sharing your weigh-ins. For me at least,  who just finally got the book today and hasn't even started properly, to know about someone having success with this way of eating means all the difference in the world.

Is most of your exercise done at home with tapes, or do you do other things? I am really battling the exercise problem because when I lived in Texas I had a wonderful instructor I loved at 24 hour fitness and never needed motivation - I always wanted to go to his classes. Now in Kansas, I am 30 minutes from a YMCA, which was the closest "normal" gym I could join with classes, but I must do exercise on my own, or I won't get where I want to be. I'm just wondering how you motivate yourself to work out with tapes at home or if you have any secrets to share there.

al i can say is-
wowowowowowowowowow!

it is so important for all of us newbies to have a tried and true success story on the boards.
i do not see that many people posting who have 'done' the diet for a few months...it is a worry for us newbies.

can you tell me how long you've done the plan and how much you have lost in each phase, etc.?

it is brilliant to have your experience-

Wowee!  I was concentrating so much on wanting to feel better that I didn't expect the scale to change
(especially after getting to eat everything I like!)
I'm premenstrual and on Week 1, Day 4 and have lost 4 lbs.!!!!
I am strictly following the diet and exercising and it is an extreme change from eating fast food,
McFlurries and not exercising!
Best wishes to everybody.
Live your plan!

bdulong-

thanks for filling me in. i am well impressed by your results and your commitment/desire to do this FOREVER.

i am searching for a way to lose, but truly a plan the can help me stabilize and maintain a healthy weight
is the MOST important goal.

i'd love to be be back in my 12, 10, 8, 6's.....i have them all. right now i am stuffed into 14/16 and so unhappy.
i refuse to buy any new clothes. an 8/10 will be fine for me....but i can dream of a 4!!!!


well done you!

It's so funny, I actually woke up at 2:30 a.m. and almost, almost weighed myself for my official end of first week, beginning of second week weigh in ....... but chickened out (like a few hours makes a difference?)
And even though I'm due for my period any day now
I lost 3.5 lbs. this first week!!!!  yay!
I'm really praying for the commitment and perseverance to stick with this for a lifetime!
NO FEAR LADIES

hooray for you lillie- that is a super loss. well done? how do you feel?

i was a 'perfect' SPDieter yesterday and the scale went up AGAIN.

why is this not working for me?
yes, i feel better. but i cannot maintain 226 lbs or gain. this is madness.

i could cry.
