Hi Andrea I am starting out new with this virgin diet as well. I just started the second week. How are things going? Is your family cooperating? I worry about my mom as well. Hope all is well

My 6th day. So far, so good. Down another pound - that makes 4 this week. I feel pretty good - had a problem with my older son yesterday about something on FB that really upset me - took a while to get over that this morning, but I'm okay now. I bought the gluten-free oatmeal at Whole Foods plus more cashew milk. The pea protein powder came in from Amazon and I am making a good protein drink for lunch every day with celery, kale, either an apple or a pear, flax seed meal, a little stevia to sweeten it a bit and a few ice cubes. Very yummy - at least to me. I tried the hemp protein - didn't agree with me. Same with the hemp oil. I am giving a little to my dog every day as he likes it. Gotta get out in the beautiful sunshine while we still have such fabulous weather.

My third day. No weight loss but I feel thinner. I haven't measured myself but will probably do that later. I also have more energy and am looking forward to getting some housework done for a change. Yesterday, I ordered some hemp oil from Amazon.com as the reviews sound fantastic - healing for the skin and whatever else - put it in the smoothie, which I haven't made yet. But I found out that the wonderful oatmeal I eat every morning is not gluten free - I also get that on subscription from Amazon.com and have a lot to use up before I can reorder the gluten free kind. That is the only gluten I am getting, but gluten is not my main problem - soy is and I have been religious about keeping that out of my diet - that plus the other five no-no items. I have a couple bags of stuff I can no longer eat to put out for the neighbors to pick up if they want - otherwise they go to the Salvation Army. Progress is rampant and I feel great.

Welcome, Andrea. I am on my second day on the Virgin Diet, and have already found that I don't crave sweets, etc., like I did even two days ago. I am eating because I know I need to, not because I am going to starve to death if I don't. I am having a little withdrawal, but generally, I already feel better. If you constantly crave stuff it is because you are eating foods that are not good for your body and it is fighting to feel better. I have dieted since I was 19 years old and have been on every diet under the sun until I got up to over 300 lbs. The cravings kept me from staying on any of them very long, but I don't seem to have them now so I know I am on the right track. I know, once you commit yourself to doing this and get through the first few days, you will feel fantastic and the weight will come off like it is doing with me. Good luck to you.

Hi everyone,

I have been reading The Virgin Diet and am very interested. I am just getting back to SparkPeople. I am out of control eating bad stuff and feel yucky most of the time. Luckily health wise I am "ok" (on paper) except for high triglycerides. But I am 43 and my mom is diabetic on 9 medications. I would also like to help her better manage her nutrition- she is not overweight at all but it sickens me to see her on so many meds. I know she could better manage the diabetes with better nutrition and between the Virgin Diet and Schwarzbein Principle I think I can help her and I both. I have battled weight forever and am almost back to my highest ever. I feel bloated, tired, depressed, and have bad digestion issues, waking every day with a stomachache.

I do know that this feels like it will be really hard for me, I am a sugar-aholic and love bread and potatoes and my nemesis non-diet root beer. I hope being part of this SparkTeam will help me to stay motivated and upbeat. I have a 6 year old and two awesome older kids who will prob give me grand-babies in the next few years. I want to play with them all and be active. Love to you all and Happy Holidays!!!

Andrea
