    Hi Lisa... count me in! I am also a former WW member. I just rejoined online with my sister and I am doing okay but would like to try something different. Can you email me the diet at this addy... dawnbuckley@yahoo.ca
    That would be great. Then we can all share our success together! I am also starting to go for long walks again which really helps lose weight. I have a pedometer so I know that when I commit to at least 10,000 steps a day, it gets me motivated when I reach it. Look forward to hearing from you!
    Thanks,

    Dawn

        thx for sending me the diet...I work out on a regular basis, I've actually just started the P90X series, which I'm in love with. I have hit a plateau and I think this is just the right mix to help burn the last bit, and all the fun of this summer off... It's all about shocking the body into new routines, and I'm looking forward to it all. I'm looking to loose another 10 pounds, but don't want to starve my body because I'm doing alot of weigh and cardio training...I have to keep that up because of the line of work I'm in also.....Looking forward to see what happens....

          This diet actually looks great I'm hoping to start something soon, because I really want to look great in that dress lol Right now I'm under a $hitload of stress, so no diet for me. I'll end up eating my weight in chocolate, and that won't be good (or cheap lol) Hopefully in September (if not sooner) I'll be on board ^_^

          So how's it going for everyone? I'm going to DIE without fruit every day, I'm not a big veggie person. Potatoes, lettuce, peppers, and broccoli... That's pretty much the extent of it lol And protein shakes are out of the question. Last I heard, bulimia isn't sustainable... How's everyone else coping with that? Can I switch for a glass of milk and a multi-vitamin instead?

            check out tickerfactory.com. You can create tickers there. Then you just copy the code and past it in your siggy.

            I thought that I would die without fruit for the 1st week, but it's really not bad. I ate salads for lunch and munched on cheese, nuts and veggies for the day along with some meat and celery with PB.

            I also can't do the shake thing and right now, I'm not doing anything to replace it. My mom told me (owned her own weight-loss clinic before) that a glass of milk would be good to replace it. I think we should all be taking a multi-vitamin everyday anyway, so I would think it would be ok.

              So I've had a couple of quetions about how do you organize your day for eating? What about a sample menu? When my mom and I sat down and looked at the diet for the first time, I had a hard time wrapping my head around how I would work things out. So we figured out a way. We created a table with everything that we needed and just filled in the blanks. I've attached a sample (we had just done ours on paper) of what we had done. So for every meal, we figured out what I needed to eat (protein, fat, whatever), wrote it down and then went through the list of foods for each catergory and filled in the blanks. Sure enough, we ended up with a sample menu and it was easy to make meals after that. We have that sample menu now on the front of the fridge with the diet so that we can easily look through it while making meals. Don't forget about the free veggies. I didn't add them to the table, but we eat them at every meal including breakfast (which is either tomatoes or cucumbers).

              I hope this will be helpful for some of you who are just starting out! Let me know if you have any questions.

                Lisa, that's perfect!

                I was planning to do something like this and now I don't have to!

                I think it will make it much easier for planning out what you need to buy at the grocery store and also, for making sure you don't eat something bad, just because you can't find an option that fits into the diet, spur of the moment.

                      You're welcome! :) I think that's a great idea! I'll start for the Low carb day (because that's what I've been only doing basically)

                      breakfast - 1 egg, tomatoes (or cucumber), cheese
                      snack - cheese, some kind of meat (ususally ham)
                      lunch - salad with lots of veggies and meat with an oil dressing
                      snack - almonds, celery with PB
                      dinner - lots of veggies with some kind of meat
                      free veggies during the day as needed

                      now I must explain something. I know that both Peanut Butter and nuts are on the fat list, but I also consider PB a protein so that's why I do it. As I've said before, my mom used to own a weight loss clinic and they used PB as a protein all the time. I figured what the hell, I'm eating WAY better, so I doubt it's a big deal.
