Just wondering if any of you can offer me some advice and maybe share with me some tips and also what items you liked and didn't like during the first phase. Thanks in advance!! I am waiting to see if our insuance plan will let me use our HSA account to cover the cost.
Hi, Relder and Racheal, welcome!

If you have about an hour to spare, go back and read the November and December threads. They will answer all your questions. But I will say is a rare person who likes the Walden Farms products. People have come up with all kinds fixes for them, though, and you'll find them in the chats, too.

This is the best diet I have ever been on, and coming to this site almost every day has been the best motivation in the world. There are people here who've lost half their body weight....easily. Once you get past the first 3 days, it's a breeze.

Congratulations to you both.

Weeks 1-8: -19#
Weeks 9-14: Off plan mostly
Week 15: -1.6# ending 2/8
