I started a diet using a popular brand of "diet" food. Since I don't want you to think I'm selling something (I'm not--I work for an insurance co--not selling that either!) I'm not going to mention the name. I decided to start the diet because I was a 2X and about to move into 3X. Double chin becoming triple--made it hard to put my chin down! Hated it! My brother, sister-in-law, & niece all lost weight on this diet (50 lbs, ?lbs, and 65 lbs) Then my other sister in law started and she was losing so fast.So after thinking it was too expensive & then realizing I was eating out at least twice a day, and sometimes even breakfast, I realized it wouldn't be any more expensive. Got the food from the internet--didn't want to go to some counseling center, blah, blah, blah. I've lost 37 lbs and I want to lose a total of 80. I'm not looking to be skinny but I want to be able to buy normal clothes, reduce my cholesterol and high blood pressure and hopefully get off the meds and be healthy. I have already lowered my blood pressure and resting heart rate. I no longer need to take a diuretic to keep my ankles from swelling up. People either notice I've lost weight or tell me I look beautiful--that I'm glowing! Wow! The rewards are so great and what's the downside? I feel better than I have in years and my life suddenly seems optimistic. I had been thinking of going overseas to work but was afraid of being nearly 60, fat, and basically unhealthy. (Not to mention that I'd just be another typical FAT American) Now that doesn't seem as improbable--maybe it could happen. I know this is a long post and promise not to be so verbose in the future. I'd like to hear what other people's experiences are. Going it alone? Going to WW? Using one of the diet food programs? I hope you are all having success and not feeling like you're suffering. I hope this is a site where people encourage each other. Thanks!
