    Hello everyone.

    I've been on this forum for a couple of weeks or so, and there doesn't seem to be a lot of regular activity, although there seems to be quite a few names posting over the last month or so.
    I just wondered who is still on the RC diet, and how you are doing?

    I'll start.....

    Tried RC online, but the site changed and a lot of it didn't work, so I decided to join a class 4 weeks ago.
    I've lost 6.5lbs so far and struggle to stick to plan at the weekends, but I do try!!!

    Over to you............

    Hello i joined RC 6 weeks ago and have lost 26lbs :D
    I too find the weekend hard but im determined to keep going and keep loosing.

    I wish there was more activity on our chat room. There are a few of us around but not as many as the other forums. I spend a lot of my time talking to other ppl doing different diets coz even tho we mite not be doing things the same way we are still trying to get the same results. :)

    MOO!
    Do I sense some boundaries? :eek:
    Lol, it doesn't really matter what diet everyone is doing, except around some on complete abstience you shouldn't mention food. :)
    But like FAR said, we are all aiming towards a similar goal, not just pure weight loss but more importantly long-term maintenance. This is why I'm here for example, I get inspiration towards that.

    My OH's mum was doing RC, not actually sure how she got on with it, she keeps alternating between Slimming World and this, but doesn't seem to be able to stick to one! :p Think she likes her hidden packets of crisps and such too much!

    Weekends can be tough: but plan something for them! Go for a walk (yes even if it looks like it might rain ;)), or arrange to go see a movie with a mate. It's the boredom and loneliness that sometimes makes us reach for food on those days, so stay strong ladies!

    Minerva, I wasn't intending to make any boundaries. I was just curious as to who is actually following the RC diet. I've been posting here there and everywhere too!
    I did LL in January of last year, and have regained a stone, which is why I'm here now.
    Most of us have experience of all of the popular diets and can all offer support and advice, but its nice to confer with people who are currently doing the same diet as you. I think thats the only thing I miss from RC online!
    Anyway, its Friday, the start of the weekend, and I now have to formulate a plan of how to stay on target and not fall into a box of wine!!! :)

    Thanks, that might be fun, but I'm very fussy!!!
    I think I might go to an extra exercise class with RC tonight. I won a free session the first week I joined and haven't used it yet. It will give me a good start to the week, before my proper class and weigh in on Wednesday.
    I've had quite a good weekend foodwise, but fell off the wagon a little with the wine! (How do people have JUST ONE GLASS???):break_diet:
    Anyway,look forward to seeing you around later on. Do you go to the chat room?

    Good for you gonabslim. Well done for losing 3 stone last year, and well done for getting back on track so quickly.
    The diet really does work if you do it properly and it really isn't that difficult, is it?
    Even when I'm not quite on track, I'm not that far off it, as the diet rules are so easy to follow. I just find my portion sizes start to expand a little more than they should. :)

    yes it is an 'easy' diet. you can see how it works like input vs output. dont input more than you output!

    So i think thats helped me cos i cant see the logic in how WW & SW work.

    I nearly talked my self out of starting class again as i thought i could do it myself.... but i know i am kidding myself. i need the disipline.

    Do you follow RC online?

    Good luck Donna. You'll soon get to grips with the diet.

    I started online, Gonabslim, but I joined a class 4 weeks ago. The online website changed just after Christmas, and there were so many glitches and nothing was working properly. It was very frustrating. I miss the forum on there though. Thats why its good to find a RC section here.

    I am much better knowing that I have to go to class each week. I went to an extra session last night too! :)

    That'll seem like a lot of food after being abstinant, Donna!!!
    Glad you enjoyed your class. I love that it MAKES me exercise at least once a week. :) Exercise is not my favourite pastime and I always have to make that extra effort.
