I tried the South Beach diet and lost about 20 lbs, but regained most of it. It was difficult at first to eliminate the sugars and had headaches for a few days. I also followed the Biggest Loser program on their website for a while (similiar to this site) but when it was no longer free for me I came to this site based on what others on that site said about Sparkpeople!! I did lose about 15 lbs on that site.
I lost 45 lbs on nutrisystem but due to cost switched to weight watchers and lost a little more than 45 lbs. So once I realized that I was close to 100 lbs lost and actually losing weight for real this time, I sabotaged myself. It's a low self-esteem thing. Went off everything and gained back 50 lbs over the next year. I never thought I could lost weight on my own, but this year we had a "biggest loser" contest at work & I actually lost 30 lbs on my own. Just through dieting, I am SO not motivated to exercise.
I tried a cabbage diet which was OK for about 5 days!
Did Weight Watchers for awhile few years ago, but it was before their new system and all that weighing and measuring was too much for me, so I cheated a lot!
I just ordered the Nutrilite Trim Body System. It's a whole program with Meal Replacement Bars, Supplements to make sure you're getting all your nutrients, and a recipe book along with an exercise program. I haven't started it yet though. I have to shop for some healthy foods for the recipes. Funny, they don't call for Doritos and mini marshmallows....more like veggies and lean meats.
I'll let you know how I like it. :-)
