How much weight do you need to lose? at an average of 1-2 pounds per week, if you start in January, will you have enough time to reach your goal? If so start in January but maybe be mindful until then. I can tell you from experience that there's nothing worse than packing on 10 extra pounds (for example) between now and the official "start date" -- it puts you that much farther behind your goal.. (believe me I have made every excuse in the book to rationalize things and in the end, it's more of a de-motivator... I get depressed because I think how much father behind I have made myself.... )
The great thing about this diet is you can move your cheat days around to accomodate holidays... and even if you cheat on a few more days than you are supposed to, I bet overall you can lose a good 10 pounds before Jan 1. So think about what's better -- starting the new year with 10 extra pounds (hypothetical of course) or starting it already having lost 10?
Keep us posted of your progress regardless of what you choose. You can do this diet -- the first 3 weeks are quite rough, but the reward is significant... you can drop 10 pounds or more in the first 3 weeks alone!

Keep up all the good work.. it's SO easy to gain weight and SO difficult to lose it and you've done so well. I'm your biggest fan without you I probably would have never started this diet so I thank you SO much for posting it, and being a "cheerleader" to us all on our way to our goals..
Please PM me if you ever need motivation/support
(you too Kathy!! You have done so well too!)

I want to lose 25 pounds for my May wedding. I am down 5 so far by going to bed every night a little hungry. So, I am looking for something that will help me get a move on the other 20 #s!
Thanks for sending me the info. I read a little of it at work today, then will do the rest at home tonight. I am going to start on Sunday with my cheat day.
I usually do not like snacks - I like 3 squares a day - so I am going to modify like this:
Breakfast - eat 1/2 of what I make
Snack 1 - finish breakfast
Lunch - eat 1/2 of what I make
Snack 2 - finish lunch
I also ordered 5-HGT which is a natural supplement that increases serotonin and helps you feel satisfied faster. Its also good for depression and anxiety, so I think it'll help me feel better about dieting!
Good luck girls! And remember - that happiness looks best in wedding photos. So remain positive and know you get to marry your soul mate!
