How well has this diet worked for you?
So far, very well indeed! I've been averaging half a stone a month - so 1-2lb a week.
How much weight have you lost and over how long of a time?
I started on January 7th this year, and so far I've lost 3 stones (42lb).
I hate being fat - but I can change this. I AM changing this. And it's both astonishing and intoxicating to feel yourself succeeding, and to realise that all the low-fat cheese, all the wholegrain bread, all the low-fat spreads and skimmed milk and 100% fruit juice and suchlike that I HAD been eating before in the belief that these were good choices was actually contributing to my problem.
Wowee, if I can do this and lose weight as quickly as you I can be at my goal by Christmas, Now that is a huge incentive for me. Thank you very much, I needed that boost.
