On the way to being skinny!

Post  ewhetstone on Sun Aug 21, 2011 7:57 pm

Tomorrow is day 1, I will post my weight and jot things down. I lost 30 pounds 3 years ago on a low carb diet and could not have done it without the support of people on the forum. I gained back 15 so now I want to reach my goal weight of 120. I'm only 5 ft tall so I could go down to 110 but i'll wait till I get there. flower

Welcome ewhetstone! Expect a few hungry moments the first few days, but be stubborn and they'll pass. I'm on day 3 and have lost 8lbs, so it works....fast! The boards have been a little quiet lately, but Spryng and I are here pretty much daily.

Welcome! yes if you post we will be here to answer for sure. I have been on the diet for 22 days as of today. I lose a bit slower so I'm only down 8.2 lbs total but my clothes are falling off of me so the loss of inches are fantastic! I'm so pleased with this diet that I don't ever plan to get off. Well at goal I guess I'll modify but this 5 bite thinking is definitely ingrained in me now. So good luck today and let us know how it goes tonight! Smile

My weight was 159.2 this morning so I wonder what it will be tomorrow!!! I'm making pot roast with veggies for supper, my 5 bites are going to be amazing. I'm going to check in every day if possible.

Today has been very good. I had 5 bites of leftover pot roast for lunch. I had a long day at work but as soon as I got home I made some coffee and want to report on here!
I lost 4 lbs overnight!!!! Very Happy That has never happened. I'm going to make some pizza and have 5 big bites of that. I'm starving!
Thanks Spryng and Salty for checking on me Smile

You GO, ewhetstone!!!!! That is fantastic. Spryng is right, the hungries will subside. But one thing I have found is your body knows when lunch time is and won't let you forget it! Mine wants those 5 bites at 12 noon, not at 12:30 and God forbid, 1pm.

Keep it goin'!!!! Very Happy

I now carry a Snickers bar in that little zipper pocket inside my purse as an emergency meal in case I find myself out at the time my stomach starts calling.

Wow guys, that is exactly what happened to me today!! Normally I eat supper at 5:30 but it was 6:30 tonight and I was ravenous! I had a buffalo chicken sandwich from subway. I had 6 bites and felt full instantly! OH How I love this!

yes that feeling of fullness on so little is a real eye opener isn't it? Used to Id have to way over eat to feel full and satisfied but now 5 bites and I'm literally stuffed!! I can sure see myself eating this way for the rest of my life. Maybe now we have an idea of how a naturally thin person eats. I have a friend who is a size 2 even after having 2 kids and she eats like a bird. A couple bites here, a couple there, no exercise. just eating small amounts for each meal and she wasn't a snacker. I used to say how could you only eat half a pizza and be full!? and she'd say, I'm so stuffed. Now I get it! Half a pizza is 5 bites for me and I'm full too! Loving it Smile

I was down another lb this morning! I already feel different if that makes sense? I'm not so hungry today hope it stays like that. My job is very physical ( on my feet for 9 hours and I can still do this)

L 5 bites of leftover subway sandwich

that says a lot! All my friends are so psyched by my weightloss etc but I get the same excuses, I can never do that diet, my job would mess it up or my body couldn't handle 10 bites a day. Excuses for sure because you are showing with a very physical job you can do it and I'm showing even with hypoglycemia I can do it and my body is not going crazy. I think anyone can do this diet if they put their minds to it and we are proof! But that is ok, we'll reap the rewards and keep plugging along while they skip from diet to diet to diet. Aren't you glad we have put that behind us? Just rip that weightloss bandaid off and be done with it this time! definitely encourages me to keep going! Smile

My husband eats like a horse and never gains an ounce, so I am allllllways done with dinner way before he is. I always bring a big glass of water to the table so that while he continues to eat, I finish off more water!

Congrats, ewhetstone on your work!!!! Another lb is another lb gone!

My husband is all for it! Here's how today went, I only lost 8 oz I had 5 bites for lunch, we went to a wedding so I had a few bites of salad, a dinner roll, a few bites of the entree, a few bites of cake and a rum and coke Smile I feel really full and I'm really curious if I will gain a lot tomorrow or not. It was worth it though Smile
