Melissa's Progress

A little about me...

I am 31 years old and have struggled with binge eating/compulsive eating my whole life.  I wasn't very overweight until I hit my college years.  At my highest I was 210 and 5'6".  I have been maintaining a weight of 187 for a couple of years now.  My goal is to get down to 135.  I have struggled so much with this.  I run 5 days a week, eat healthy (I am a vegetarian) and try to keep my calories down.  Yet eating less is always a struggle and I decided to stop dieting a couple of years ago because everytime I dieted (i.e., starved) I ended up binging and that just made me more miserable.  I thought I would give this a shot since there was no diet involved, just a way to suppress the appetite. Most days prior to starting this I would struggle to stay between 1800-2100 calories and my weight would never budge.  I knew I had to find a way to eat less without feeling deprived.  I started 3 days ago on 5/5.

5/5: 187
5/8: 184  :P

3 pounds in 3 days.  Amazing!!!  I am so happy!  I take one tablespoon of ELOO twice a day.  I may up it to 3 tablespoons for a little more appetite control, although the 2 seem to be working fine.  I think about food less and am satisfied with much less.  Also, my craving for sweets after meals is gone.  Good luck to all of you!  I will post my progress again at the end of the week!

wow, that's amazing progress.

I am also running 5 days a week, my goal is also close to 135. And i've had the same diet cycle you've gone through. I would love to hear how your progress is going.

Hi Melissa

I am about the same age 32 and weight and my goal is to get to 125 pounds as this is where I used to be in college. Glad to know that AS is working for you. I restarted SLD after months of half-heartedly doing it with the intent of being consistent. Like you I am thinking about food far less and I am also happy with less! I usually crave sugar after every meal (habit?) but what I have started doing is having a couple of sticks of gum after a meal (just till the sweet wears off). Its working remarkably well.

I have joined the gym today and plan to exercise there in 45 minute chunks ideally 4 days a week but plan to start with as much as I can take. I am sure this is going to help.
