Minerva, thanks, that's fantastic! :) Very interesting - and it gives me hope that I'll be eating 'normally' before long! ;)

I think I'll print it off.

This is the Route to Management program Bali - when you have reached your target on the Lighter Life Lite plan, you do this 4 Week Module to slowly reintroduce you back to food and stabilise your weight loss. :) But yes, only when you feel you don't want to lose any more weight!

:D

i am going away in 5 weeks, but will not be at my goal weight. i wont be on the diet whilst im away as im away for 5 weeks, so my C said 2 weeks before i go she will introduce more food so my stomache is accustom to it while im away. the day after i step off the plane back home im going straight back to the diet, then staying on it till my goal weight

This is brilliant Minerva, I am going to 1st LLL meeting on Sunday and was very apprehensive but now feel much more confident. Thank you, you are definately an inspiration, like the quotes bout treasure at the end of road, very motivating.

Ditto here too but i'm doing the full 4 weeks and only having a week away, then I'm hitting the LLL!

Min, can I ask, your table says to increase Vegetable choices, Additional vegetables now include.... Additional to what? Is there a base list to start from? Is it the base LLL list?

As I will be going backwards (LLL RTM after LL) before goiing forwards (LLL :rolleyes:) I'm not totally up to speed on the LLL bit yet. :eek:
 
#9
thanks Min, not to my goal weight but will be going on RTM in 2 weeks as im going away for 5 weeks and need to get my stomache used to food, was wondering how it would be done

hi minerva,
did you continue to loose on lll rtm ? im planning to go as far along with lll as i can but im joining hubby on his cruise ship on july12th when ill still be a little way off goal if it all goes to plan . so i figured if i started rtm in 6 weeks so im on week 2 of the management module when i embark then im equiped with more meal s and choices making the 12 days on board easier. i figure ill go back as it was to another module to shift the final half stone and redo management then , mmm sounding very confusing i know :0) i did rtm post abstinence and lost 9 lb in the 12 weeks , mostly i think due to the fact that i exersized more as my food intake increased , was hoping the same could apply this time . mmm would be nice to not have to go backward before going forward again :eek: sorry rambling again !!!! its a gift:D
thanks for any thoughts ideas or advice
sukie xx

To be fair, I'm in Week 3 of RTM, and my portions have gotten much smaller ... uhh.. I'm slowly introducing the new food choices like fruit and nuts (been allowed carbs for a week now - not touched them yet though ... apart from the occasional porridge in the morning).
Week 1 STS, Week 2 -3lbs, Week 3 not had WI yet...
Since it's a 4 week module of food reintroduction - technically speaking you may still lose in Week 1, but not so much the weeks after that... I don't know about your idea of 'coming off' specifically for the cruise, then going back on again... Nearly 2 week long cruise... Week 2 of Lite RTM isn't too bad, maybe do LLL for as long as possible all the way up to your cruise, and just start from Week 2/3 choices when you go away - Week 1 is so pathetic (adding beans really shouldn't count as a week on it's own! Lol).
I mean it's all up to you - I'm at a point where I have a hard time seeing why food will make anything more enjoyable - though being restricted in your choices does suck quite a bit. I'd say - just we wise in your decisions and portion sizes. Enjoy what you want to enjoy but make sure you enjoy everything in moderation. If you're gonna drink: stick to gin and slimline tonic (single measure drink: 50 calories), if you're going to go for dessert: choose fruit. If there are unavoidable carbs around: stick to "tablespoon" measures. Eat slowly, enjoy your food... apart from that, don't worry too much... the more you worry - the more problems there will be.

I don't know if this was a good enough answer, I'm so tired at the moment, falling asleep on my keyboard...
