Starting over again
« on: September 12, 2015, 06:02:30 PM »
Hello all

Well no matter how many times I start I always come back to this site....I just manage not to stick with a diet very long...
I just started a low calorie diet on 8/31/15 at 323 lbs and as today 9/12/15.. I weight 320 lbs... I feel I can do better with low carb but just have to stick with it..so I will be changing over first thing in the morning. Now I am going to dust off the book to review and look at the forum for tips... I like to keep the meals basic like eggs, chicken etc...

Joe

I had the lapband back in 2005 weight 323 lbs got down to 267 lbs Now I regained all my weight.. my mini goal is 299 by Dec 31,2015.

Welcome home, Joe!!! :) :) :) :) :)

You've known that calorie diets don't work.
And you just spent 2 weeks proving that again.

Now is the time, get back on track and COMMIT to succeed.
After a couple weeks, cravings will subside and it will be easier to stay the course.

So take it one day at a time, and one meal at a time, even one moment at a time, when needed.

You CAN do this if you want it enough.
And we'll do what we can to help you.

Tony
What you do today is what matters!

I started out not sticking to it but told myself to not give up over and over. Now I'm glad I did that. You are really making the best choice by coming back. Get excited about the delicious foods you can eat. That really helps.

I was 320 at my highest.  I was told to get lap band but I hate going under the knife.  I have lost 25 pounds but am struggling to maintain due to a death in the family.  FTS really works and improves your health and longevity.  I am so glad that you dusted off that book! :)

Shakes can be made lowest in carbs by using extracts, a fruit(berries), lots of heavy whipping cream, coconut milk, etc.... and of course Zero Sweet!!
