I have been at it for 2 months and have lost 12 lbs.  I could lose that by fasting a day or two a week, but I guess it is about lifestyle change.  That is the hardest part.  To learn how to not stuff your face.  When you figure it out let me know, because I still struggle with it, especially when my hubby brings home pizza (he works for a pizza place, so it is often)  AAARRGGG.  I just remember my mantra, Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.  Please let me feel it soon!!

hi jsut started a week ago and am only down 2 lbs. i did it last summer for 2 mths and lost about 15 lbs and kept it off after that. i have A LOT of friends who have been doing it for years and they have lost A LOT of weight. some struggle as they gain it back when they get off and one is jsut not happy no matter how much she loses (that to me is not a weight problem but a self esteem problem). One of  them has been on it for a lil over a yr and has lost SOO much weight (i belevie its been 100 lbs). she looks GREAT!! I am hoping to stick with it this time. it does take time and self control but it gets easier after the 1st week! give yoruself one day to treat yourself! thats what we all do. usually the day of weigh in (after weigh in of course)!

GOOD LUCK!

When I was on it, (after my son but had to quit because I got pregnant and they will not let you attend if you are preggers) it really did work!  I did the core program, instead of the points programs, and it was a lot easier than when I watched my mom attempt the points program so many years ago.  If I had the ton of money I would need to attend again, I would definitely do it now!!!  It helps having the group to go to, beacuse you feel ashamed if you didn't lose, which is different when you try to lose weight at home alone, because you will justify it to yourself.  It isnice having the huge room of people to cheer you on when you reach little milestones, like every 5 lbs. etc..  Also, if you have your own friend to go with, it makes it even easier because you have someone you know to call and shop with and make you go every week.


Good luck on your adventure!!
