In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
You've chosen the healthier route, I've tried every DIET imaginable, but until I finally realized that this is a lifestyle change, journey, nothing ever happened. I was always yo yoing.
There are so many foods you can choose from, the world is at your feet. I know that my nutrition tracker gives me from 1400 to 1800 calories per day. The way God has taught me to eat, I'm blessed if I can get between 700 and 900 calories. Whenever I try to eat more than that, my stomach revolts big time, and I'm just doubled over, or rolling in the bed, asking God to take the pain away.
I thought that I had to eat a certain amount of calories, or it wouldn't be healthy for me, but every time I tried, my stomach would hurt. I can't say I've never been hungry, as when I have to have blood work done, it's usually fasting, I'm clamoring to get something in my stomach. Other than that, I'm not hungry, and I'm eating in such a healthy way. God showed me my trigger foods, and so many things that I didn't know, until this lifestyle change, journey.
I have faith in you. It may take a bit for you to get in the groove and get use to the NEW way you're feeding your body, but it's oh so WORTH IT!!!

I had been on the Atkins Diet and I was able to loose some weight, but I was hungry. My husband found this and the foods look much better. I hope it will help me reach my goal of fitting into my Mother of the Groom dress comfortably by October 18.. Right now with it on I can not breath..
