Hi All,

I'm NCSmasher! I had followed the plan to a T for about a month back in April/May 09 but fell off the wagon. I've gained more weight back and am at my highest weight. I want to regain control of my eating and am going to get back on the plan. My question is, should I go ahead and start today or wait until after the holiday? OR should I follow the plan today and just add an extra day in detox so that I can enjoy dessert and Christmas dinner? :?:

I really hope someone reads this! It seems empty on this forum...if anyone knows of another forum that would be helpful to use please let me know!

I'm not a Fat Smasher, but I'm not an advocate of waiting to start a diet until after XZY event/holiday/day of the week, etc. It's never a bad idea to make good food decisions for yourself and what better way to make sure you don't lose control on a holiday than knowing you've already started your plan?

Sorry you haven't gotten more replies! It's always really slow on 3FC at the end of the year. But come Jan 1st, watch out!

I agree. If you are going to start, start NOW. Don't wait. Don't wait until tomorrow. Don't wait until next Monday or after Christmas. Start right this very second.

Thanks CLCSC145, great advice! I usually always wait until a certain day or etc. and it never helped in the past. Today I have been following the plan and ate healthy foods. I hadn't really saw it as just making healthy food choices usually it's more like a D day I mark on my calendar.

I used to always say I'll start tomorrow and then stuff myself today because it was "the last time" I was going to eat like that. :stars: I had a lot of those "last" meals!

Good for you for not waiting to take care of yourself! :D

I will be starting tomorrow. I love fruit and veggies so I think this program will work for me. We could start together it you would like. I would have replied sooner but I just found this amazing forum a couple of days ago.

Hi M3angels and jamer5! Yes I did start but will be going back to detox phase I starting tomorrow. I went off the plan for NYE and will be getting back on the horse tomorrow.

I will try and post on the forum frequently b/c it will be good to have others who are on the plan as well :-)
