I would considered diet green tea as green tea. Right now, when I am not working, I try to brew mine but I am not making it 3x/day. I maybe drink it 1-2x/day 4-5days/wk. Today, I ate one piece of See's candy. But it was after a funeral and there were LOTS of sweets and desserts and I only had one piece of candy. Not bad.

My questions: If I forget to drink my lemon water until after breakfast, should I still have it or just skip it. Also if I don't get my 2 pieces of fruit before 2 pm, should I skip that or have it late?

Do you guys consider bottled diet green tea to be part of the daily 3 servings?

Great Job JCW001, Gina, and Tova!!
I like your attitude Tova!. Pick up a 5lb bag of flour and you will be amazed at how much weight you have lost!

Everyone is doing great. Dan on day 2 and down 5 and then 8 and 9 pounds. I seem to be losing the least. I have lost ~ 5 as well but I am on day 7. But I am ok, I am still down.

Saturday wasn't a great night and then yesterday, when we went to hurricane harbor and dh bought a funnel cake. I wasn't great but I didn't have my whole piece. I only took 2 small bites. Not great but still improvement.

I started officially at midnight, Thursday night. Mainly becuase of working mids the past 3 days.
So far everything is going well....Miss the breads and cereals and other starches, but really learning to savor the taste of salads, fruits and a few lean meats allowed.
So far have lost 5.3 pounds which really encourages me
Best of luck to other starting this week!!

LovingSandy: I love this diet too. I have been suffering from heart burn and the last 2 days I have had none without meds.

Samsullivan: Glad it is going well.

Dan: Good luck with day 1 tomorrow. May it be an easy day.

As for me, I am down near 5 pounds in one day. Is that even possible for the first day? I didn't have my green tea with dinner yesterday or breakfast today. I am also drinking a crystal light today and had a sugar free slurpee. But I think I am doing ok. I feel great and not hungry.

I just restarted C1 today. This is R2 for me. My goal this time is for 100% compliance. I cheated here & there on R1, but now that I completed the whole thing once, I think the second time around should be easier. We'll see! I'm current,y training for a marathon in September and I think I will have an easier time if I drop the extra weight I am carrying around.

Well I am back and starting over. Last fall I had good success and now back on the program.
I had my official weigh in this morning and I did not gain all my weight back so I am off to a good start. I feel off the wagon due to some health problems and depression and now I am back and motivated.

In the past, having a thread devoted to cycle 1 starts on or about the same time has seemed helpful for those newbies and intermediates and veterans who were starting or restarting cycle 1 to have a place to share experiences and spur each other on or simply to have some great company on the journey.

Feel free to use it in any way that might help.

There are a lot of us who started/restarted cycle 1 last week and will still be on it for your first week. You can pop in there, but sometimes it helps to know who is starting out in close proximity to you. (those detox issues)

You can do anything for 17 Days!! emoticon
