I like the powdered drinks the best. Slim fast has come a long way. I mix it with milk and ice in my blender. I remember when the drinks were so chalky and wouldn't freeze. Their snack bars (the muffin bars) are great. I like most of the meal bars. Just check out their website, do the profile (it's free) and you'll get your customized meal plan. 3 meals, 3 snacks a day. There's really no time to be hungry. I've been trying to look at eating as something I have to do for nurishment, not enjoyment. I eat regular on Sundays, and on Monday's it takes me a while to get back on track---those old cravings come back quick!!

Sticking to it no matter what.

Don't be afraid of going slowly, just be afraid of not going (moving) at all.

This lady at church told me I should try Slim fast drinks. She had a hysterectomy over 40 years ago and does not have the big tummy and looks super for a lady in her 70s! I think I will buy this stuff and see if it works for me. I am an emotional eater, too. Once I start eating those 100 calorie packs or a 100 calorie fudgesicle I cannot stop! Best if I don't even start eating in the morning but I know that is not good for us either. We will accomplish our weight loss goals~that is what we have to keep telling ourselves!

Dance as though no one is watching you, love as though you have never been hurt, sing as though no one can hear you and live as though heaven is on earth.

Hi ADAJLIM, I had a problem with snacking when I quit working at the end of April. Even though I was snacking on fruits and those 100 calorie snack packs, it was adding up. Since I've been off work, I've gained 8 lbs, even though I've been exercising. I recently did the slim fast 2 week challenge. Eating 6 meals a day has really helped me with the snacking. My main meal of the day is dinner (it's week three and I'm still sticking with slim fast). I have added more foods to my diet, I just watch the calorie intake and the portion sizes. And I'm an emotional eater. Just so many things to deal with, but we can do this!!

Hi Yvonne! I also have gained about 30 pounds since my hysterectomy in 2003 and it just won't come off! I wear the Vivelle Dot patch because I had a total hysterectomy and really needed something to tame my moods! My trouble is I stay at home and I end up snacking too much! I volunteer a lot but whenever I come home I snack. Not on candy bars but on fruit, nuts and those 100 calorie packs of popcorn or a fudgesicle...I guess I love to eat! My husband and I are both determined to lose weight though so we are trying to eat better and exercise more! Good luck to you and don't stop trying!

Dance as though no one is watching you, love as though you have never been hurt, sing as though no one can hear you and live as though heaven is on earth.

My name is Yvonne from Dallas, Texas. I had a hysterectomy in Dec. 2000. The most I've gained is 31 lbs since my surgery. I'm at my highest weight and having the hardest time getting it off this time. But I keep trying knowing I will soon have the breakthrough I need. I've tried so many different things. Weight Watchers worked for me, but after the 2nd go around with it, I haven't been able to commit to it. I would always lose the around the same amount, hit a brick wall and not lose for a year or so, then gain most of the weight back. I'm on and off of hormone pills. Sometimes they help, sometimes they don't. I'm determined to get this weight off and keep it off.

Sticking to it no matter what.

VIRGO2008~I tried to go Sugar Free this week but blew it on my first day! I LOVE chocolate and we had some in the refrigerator and I just could not resist! The good thing is I have been volunteering at the church a lot this week. I come home dead tired from helping out in getting the annual church yard sale ready for this Saturday. I worked 4 hours yesterday after laying down some vinyl self stick tiles in an outdoor shed in the morning. Today I worked for 6 hours. I am also volunteering at the church Thrift Shop tomorrow and Saturday mornings for 4 hours each day. I hope I am burning up a lot of calories with all this volunteering!! Don't have time to be depressed because I am too tired and very busy!!! Things will get better!!!

VIRGO2008~Good idea! It's always good to have a partner to work with! I did have green tea this morning instead of my decaf coffee and coffeemate. Kind of boring...I have such a sweet tooth! I am working on my second peach already! Later on I am going to make a watermelon freeze in the blender! I know I will be eating a lot of fruit this week~that's for sure! I am determined to make it through the week without sugar!

Welcome and nice to know that I am not the only one who has gained weight and look like I am pregnant since my hysterectomy in March of 2003. We will work on losing that weight together! I am trying to go with a NO SUGAR diet this week. Really hard for me since I love Coffeemate in my coffee first thing in the morning! Now drinking plain green tea~a little boring for me! Going for a early morning walk! Good luck in your goal to loses weight and tone up those tummy muscles!
