Hello! I am so glad to have found this forum. My name is Sherri and I am so excited to start this new way of thinking and living. I am tried EVERYTHING and I mean everything and it never works. I loose some for a while but nothing permanently. I found the book and it called to me. I have set for today to be the first day, my husband and son aren't thrilled about it but they are going to try it out too. I am a diet pepsi-aholic so that is going to be tough, also I am an all day snacker..so that will be tough not to have my normal cookies. But I am excited and going to do it. I run a business from home and sometimes it just feels like I am hiding out, embarrassed of my weight. I am ready to not be embarrassed and to start living my life.

Watch out world....here I come!

Hello Sherri, welcome Smiley Don't worry about the diet Pepsi, it's not causing you any weight issues. As far as snacking all day....go to my recipe section and make some snack trays. Keep them in the fridge at eye level and hit them when you want a snack. I don't want you hungry. It's important for you to separate hunger from boredom. Working from home leads to boredom eating. Make sure to follow the test outlined in the book to reach true hunger.

You're going to be fine, stay in touch...this is your support group Smiley

Thanks for the warm welcomes. I am on day two and it has been a lot of fun. I miss my cookies and sweets but it has been fairly easy to just ignore the sweet cravings. I have to tell you it almost feels like I am doing something wrong it's been so easy. I have the whole family on it and they have been really great about it. I made breakfast burritos this morning, using the recommended tortillas, fun wraps for lunch with lettuce leaves and we are having hot dogs and a huge salad for dinner. I am really excited about this!

I think I am doing something wrong. Ive been doing this for over a month now and I seem to have only lost 5 pounds. I count every carb I put in my mouth. Sigh. I dunno what to do. Maybe my scales are off.

Hi Beebs,

Lets explore what's going on with you. I want you to start a new thread on the LEAN ON MY SHOULDER board. name the topic and then I want you to tell me exactly what you ate yesterday. If you've only lost 5 pounds in a month sugar is sneaking in somewhere and I doubt the scales are wrong. I'll respond after I read your next post.

Sorry for the delay in replying. First it was Easter than my family all flew out to Florida to see us. We just relocated to Florida a few months ago and it seems everyone wants to stay with us and hit Disneyworld. Anyway..I love that you can do a snickerdoodle recipe.

   
My Snickerdoodles:
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

They are amazing and soft and YUMMY!

By the way I did go with my new eating plan even at Disney! I have gone down a WHOLE pant size in 19 days! Imagine what I can do in six months Smiley
