Ask Umpa / Flour
« on: September 17, 2011, 09:45:03 PM »
Hi Umpa,  I was wondering how you decide which flours to use in your recipes?  I am thinking about some of the recipes that I make in the fall and during the holiday and wondering how will I know whether to use almond, soy, or flax.  With your brownie recipe that is in the bakery book can soy flour be used?  Any information you could share would be very helpful.

Also,  I do a lot of canning and was wondering how you would go about sweetening jam?

Thank you for your help, I appreciate you being here  ;)

Hi there Doug,  it has been awhile but I am ready for another E Book.  Would you please send me the "product" book.  I would really appreciate it.  Thank you so much!

I will keep you and your family in my prayers Alex. 

I have done this with my pizza since I started FTS.  When you have kids around it makes it easy to have pizza and enjoy it with them.  Even though I loved pizza crust I was amazed that I didn't miss it.  If you haven't tried this yet, you need to.  It is yummy!!!   ;)

Thank you Doug and Umpa for all your hard work in coming up with the FTS lifestyle.  You have inspired many people and saved their lives.  I have taken the knowledge I have learned from you, my experience, and shared it with many people.  I hope that they too will find a happier healthier lifestyle.  I honestly never thought I would be thin again.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ;)

Hi there everyone, it has been awhile since I have been on the forum let alone posted.  Well it is official, I have reached my goal and feel great!  So, here is my story.  Back in December 2010, I was overweight, having heart issues, and not liking myself much.  My cardiologist told me to ride a stationery bike to try and get my heart regulated.  I went home and thought about it for a month. Then I bought one and rode it at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.  But I was still having problems with a racing heart and fatigue. After a vacation I never seemed to get back on my bike.  In March, my Mom heard Doug on the radio, and called suggesting I check into FTS.  The next day I went and bought the book, read it, and my life changed.  The journey has not been as difficult as I originally thought, although I did have some very frustrating plateaus that lasted for weeks.  There were times that I wondered if it was worth not eating some of the things that I have enjoyed.  But I am here to tell you it is worth it.  I feel great and look good.  I even look nice in a bikini again.  My tummy is flat and I lost 5 inches off each thigh!!!  I mow my lawns, (haven't done that in years) been painting, and busy all the time.  But besides all that the cardiologist has released me from his care.  I have been at my goal for a couple of weeks, and have eaten a few things that I probably shouldn't have. Only because I found that then I want it more. Now I will still eat the same for the most part but would like to add some more fruits for a little variety.  The best advice I can give those of you who are still journeying to your goal is... Don't give up.  The sense of accomplishment you feel when you reach your goal is amazing because you did it for yourself.  You are the only one who will truly benefit from all you have endured both physically and mentally.   It IS worth it.  ;)

Weight Loss Stalled! WHY? / Definetly feeling bummed
« on: June 22, 2011, 02:10:52 AM »
Hi everyone, it has been awhile since I have posted but I have lived the FTS lifestyle 100%.  I am getting depressed...okay so I am depressed.  My weight loss has been at a stand still for quite awhile.  I have been very active but nothing is happening.  I had thought by now I would have reached my goal or at least been real close.  I feel like I have as much weight to lose now as when I first started.  You know the feeling I am talking about?  Like you have this goal but it is so far away you feel like you will never get there.  I have gotten many people started on the lifestyle and I am very supportive to them, but I feel very alone.  I am sure that sounds goofy but it is how I feel.  My husband makes comments that he can't wait until I am done with this, he doesn't seem to get that I intend to pretty much eat the same as I do now when I reach my goal.  I am sorry, I guess I just had to have a pity party and have no where else to vent.  This is not my normal demeanor so please don't judge me by this post.  I just needed to express how I am feeling.

Good job on the weight lose!  Either way losing weight fast or slow it is still weight loss. ;)
