    So I've watched a couple of good documentaries about food and what is truly healthy and what isn't. I realize just how unhealthy I eat, even if the too-high calorie equation is taken away- prior to this diet I ate NO fruits or vegetables. That's right. NONE. Why? Because I prefer other fo...

  • Reposting because this is so what I needed to read. My own wisdom

    So, I was watching a show last night called "obsessed," and basically it showed people going though horrible OCD and the treatment method used. The people were exposed to the worst case scenario (worked up to that point of course) and just taught that even if the anxiety reached maximum level, it ca... Read more

  • Struggle

    12/15/2014 10:12:39 AM, by STARSHINE123

    This week has been a lot of struggle, especially in the last couple of days. I really want to eat- I want to revert back to my old ways. The power food has over me is very strong. Yesterday I was feeling very stressed, and realized I had no where to go with it (couldn't use food as coping mechanism)... Read more

    I plan on losing a lot of weight. I have some friends who have recently lost a lot of weight, and along the way, they would point out how bad they looked in their old photos. I see that here a lot, too. The problem is, I don't think anyone looks "bad" heavier- they just look heavier. Today I make th... Read more

  • 1 week in

    I'm doing well. Still very motivated, stayed on my plan all week. I'm a little frustrated the scale hasn't moved at all in 4 days considering I usually lose a lot the first week. Just going to keep at it, add in more exercise. ... Read more

  • Easy

    So far, it's been easy. I want to win this. I'm more determined than ever before. I don't want to feel people are better than me just bc of my size anymore. I'm so ready. Now that the financial part of this diet is less of a threat, I feel it's more possible. The one thing I worry about is what if i... Read more
