Welcome aboard!

You've found a wonderful place for information and support. There are no dumb questions (well, for the most part ), so ask away.

Dear Jane:

I did lose that weight
I followed the instructions by Dr. Aikens to the letter
I did forget to drink all the water i was supposed to at first and still have a porblem there
Even if i had not lost the weight..i cannot express enough how wodnerful and differan ti feel emotionally and physically
I sleep better, have no sugar lows and am never hungry
this is a marvel to me
thank you for your support..i know if you are patient and stick to the rules the FAT will move ON

Hi lyttlefish,
I applaud you for your weight loss thus far. I am also following the LC WOE to the tee and words can't express how much better I feel. I can't wait for the weeks to go by where I can lose more and more. I really want to look good and get back down to my desired weight and i believe that if i stick to this, i can get there by the summertime. Much more success to you and I both and good luck.

Dear Jane;

Thank you for the kind words of encouragement
How are you doing so far on your 'quest'
I do not find this plan too difficult to follow
I just hope that it keeps working
The only thing that i miss is a glass of red wine once in a while
I used to do this on Friday evenings and have a nice romantic dinner
would you know if wine is permitted at all
thanks
have a great day
<')))<

Hello Lyttlefish,
So far, it's day 6 and i feel great. I can't say that I don't have any cravings or wantings to eat all these sugar products or fast foods because i do, but i'd rather lose weight then eat these things. I havn't weighed myself yet, not untill tomorrow morning and we'll see what the count is for week 1. My roommate tried the LC WOE and broke down the same day and ate cake, I don't think she wants to do it anymore, it's so hard. Anyways, I'll let you know the count tomorrow and good luck to you. I'm not sure if wine is permitted, but there is a section on alcohol in the "newbies questions," i'm sure they may have it there. Good luck and talk with you soon.

It's too bad that your roommate gave in on the first day. Once you make it through Induction, perhaps you can use your experiences to get them going again and help and get them through the rough spots.

I'm looking forward to your Week 1 progress report as well. I'm pulling for you!

Thanks lyttlefish and Wbahn!!
I didn't know you could chew sugarless gum, can you?? How many carbs?? Will it slow you down??? I was just wondering because i work at a factory job on an assembly line and everyone is always chewing gum and eating candy and i want to do that also, just to be doing something. If you know, let me know, thanks!!! BTW, i broke down and weighed myself a day early and i'm still at 152lbs, so tomorrow shouldn't look any different, but i'll let you good people know. Good luck to us all!

Thanks lyttlefish!
I checked the sugarless gum that i have and they have 0 carbs, so today i chewed a half piece while at work, it felt real good to chew on something at work while everyone else was snacking on valentines candy. Today was my official weigh in at 1 week and i couldn't believe, it said i lost 8lbs!!! I'm very excited and i'm continuing on this WOE untill i get down to my destinged weight however long it takes. Thanks for eveything everyone!!

Hi Lyttlefish,
I'm not sure what kind of gum I am chewing, I actually forgot the name and I left the pack at work, I'll let you know tomorrow. I'm very positive that your weight will come off in due time. I'm glad that some did come off and that's a great motivation for you to keep going further. Keep up the good work and i'm proud of you also.
