The numbers on the scale started to drop right away, but I'm only seeing a little progress in how my clothing fits. I figure if I keep on track I'll start seeing real changes in measurements by the end of the year. It'll stay hard to stay on track while I'm traveling for Christmas, though.

for me i think it was about a month and a half. It takes me a whole month just to get my metabolism fast again by eating smaller portions more often, eating healthy, working out and drinking lots of water. Yay, i feel awesome :)

everyone looses weight differently. some will loose slow and conistently where others might hold onto their weight for a week or two then drop more all at once. it's strange but true. i definitely agree with the consistency of the program. if you are not sticking with everything, then you can't expect the same kind of results.

best of luck!

Well as for myself, I saw progress within two weeks of just cutting meat from my diet. But I can feel the difference now. I have more energy through out my day.

Glad you see some progress! It helps a lot to stay focused and motivated!

For me it's a little tricky, I have an under active thyroidy which played up last summer 2007, and my medicine dosage just set my TSH within the normal range eventually.

I haven't really changed my way of eating as I was eating very heathly, and my calories intake was already pretty low.
To help me to lose, my only solution was to increase my hours of sport as soon as I felt less tired because of the disease.

I only lost 3 kg (6.6 pounds) in more than a year after gaining 10 kg (22 pounds) in less than a couple of months. My endocrinologist told me it would take at least one year and half to lose all the pounds gained during the peak of my disease. I have to stay motivated!

It is so helpful to hear about everyone's progress. Mine is very very slow, but perhaps I am not being as good as I should be.

I keep track of my food and exercise so I've been seeing some really good process but I've got to keep on it or I lose track and motivation.

Aloha and Blessed be!

I thought I had progress. I pre-planned all my meals. I only ate Vegetarian foods, and worked out one hour every other day, for 3 months. I gave myself a freebie day for the weight loss, then one day turned into more days and overnight all my progress fall apart

I'm with Will, when I keep track of everything, I see real progress. But the biggest progress was a couple weeks ago when I had to buy a new coat(my old one was too big and very old. DH said to get a couple pair of pants, too. The others(size 16) were falling off. I grabbed a couple pair of size 14 to try on, waaay too big. Grabbed a couple pair of 12's and fit but still a little big. Grabbed a size 10-too tight but got them anyway. I was crying in the dressing room, when I came out to show him, I started really crying, almost bawling. I don't remember the last time I wore a size 12. He wanted me to go get some tops and sweaters, but it was too overwhelming, I couldn't. That felt like real progress!!! emoticon

For me, I saw progress when I was consistent with following my program. I’m talking about everyday watching my calories, and getting in my exercise at least three times a week, every week. Once I got serious and stuck with it, I really began to see progress in a couple of weeks.

But when I first started, I was serious for a couple of days than slipped back to my old ways. Got busy again, then slipped back. As long as I did that, the progress wasn’t there, or it at least was not noticeable.

But keeping tabs on myself and holding myself accountable on a day by day basis, I saw results quickly. Although other people could see the progress in me before I saw it in myself, it didn’t take long after that for me to see it.

I'm seeing real progress now and am thrilled!!!! It is like I woke up this week and noticed that I really-honest-to-goodness am finally shrinking. I can excitedly say I'm beginning to really have faith in the process.

So my question is, how long was it until others saw their progress?

"There are two wolves struggling inside each of us," the old man said.
"One wolf is vengefulness, anger, resentment, self‐pity, fear . . .
"The other wolf is compassion, faithfulness, hope, truth, love . . ."
The grandson sat, thinking, then asked: "Which wolf wins, Grandfather?"
His grandfather replied, "The one you choose to feed."
