Hi Cinnamarie, I have lost 5 pounds. But more important to me I also dropped my body fat percentage by 2 points. I agree with you about attitudes towards food, I no longer see it as a crutch but more as a means to nourish my body. I am so grateful for this program. I lost 30 pounds on weightwatchers 5 years ago and I always felt deprived and hungry, now I just feel so EMPOWERED!!!!
"Getting through trials doesn't reveal our strength. (No, the trials do a pretty good job of that.) Getting through trials reveals God's grace and produces our character. So yes, get up. If God allows, get up to fight the good fight. But as you wipe the dust off your back, don't pat." -Jimmy Peņa
Oh boy, I KNOW that feels great!!! You are living proof that exercising your "resistance" muscles works!! The more we give in, the more we are tempted to give in! Especially with sugars & breads!! The more we resist, the easier it is to resist!! And seriously, carbs just make you want more anyway.
I'd say you're on to something!!!!!!!!!!

Yay! May I ask your weightloss after the 14 days? I'm sure that has something to do with it as well? It is truly amazing that you see/feel the results this plan gives you and that along with how you feel is truly all you need to keep you from the foods of "before"... it really is. I know that I feel SO differently towards food than I did prior to my experience with the 17 Day Diet! It's just remarkable!
That's sooo amazing and truly is something to celebrate! I'm so happy for you! I'm glad to hear you are celebrating your success!
I just had to share. I am on C1D14, something happened today that has never happened to me before, I went to a pot luck and was able to walk right by the bread, pastries, fried chicken, beef, casseroles and desserts and helped myself to a small salad with a tiny drizzle of italian dressing (which was the healthiest dressing available) with a few grapes for sweetness. The best part was the salad was sitting between the assorted breads and the most delectable chocolate cake you ever saw - and I wasnt even tempted. It gets better, I came in to work and there were 3 large boxes of pizza delivered for the staff, and I wasn't tempted either. This is a big deal for me because a few weeks ago, the bread, pastries, pizza and cake would have had my name all over it. I was just unable to resist them - and now I can. Oh happy day!!!!!
