I had my first months weigh in this morning and I am so pleased to have lost 19lb even though I had a weekend away when I ate 'real food'! I also discovered during my weekend away that my relationship with food has changed and I no longer feel controlled by food - I'm in charge now! I can't pretend it has not been tough at times but one month ago the thought of losing 19lb was just a dream. I have tried every diet going and was so depressed with my weight and the way I looked. My clothes are loose now and my confidence is rising as my weight is lowering. I know I still have a long way to go but I feel confident that I can lose this weight and keep it off. I wish I had found this diet years ago as I have wasted so many years hiding away, avoiding social events etc as I felt people judged me by my size. I am at home poorly today but this has cheered me up - just needed to share my thoughts.
