Default OK -- let's get this thing going again

Hello! I'm so happy to see some people have posted and would love to use this thread as a support group, even if not really restricted to the Gabriel method. I think he's got a lot of useful ideas but I don't think we need to buy into the whole package to benefit from them. I'm a big believer in the power of meditation and visualization.

Would you be open to making this thread "loosely-based" -- or, conversely, to starting a new group with a theme yet to be determined?

I hope so!

Default So Far So Good

I have lost 8 lbs since I started with the Gabriel Method, 12 days ago.



I have been listening to the visualizations at night, and have watched some of the videos (visual version of the book) but not on a daily basis.

I have realized how much I was obsessing about food, either when dieting or not dieting, and have made an effort to stop worrying about it: clearly, that was not doing me any good. Still dieting, still overweight, still either gaining, or just maintaining, at best.

Now I don't think that much about it, other than consciously avoiding sugar, but not weighing or measuring or counting points or calories, and I find that I am not thinking about what I can't have, or what I want but shouldn't eat... and I am not overeating. I can only speculate that my body is letting go of what it's been holding onto, in starvation mode.

I thought about keeping track of what I was eating, just so I could see the difference, but it felt like I was concentrating on calories and portions and fat content and sugar too much, and that's what I am trying to get away from.

I will have to let my weight, and my jeans size, do the talking.

Wow! Eight pounds in such a short time is amazing -- nice start! I think I'm going to start a thread for a more general holistic health-based approach, but the Gabriel method can be a very helpful tool.
