Hi, Tammy! I registered this morning to post almost the exact same thing. I am a 49 year old woman who is 60 pounds overweight. After several failed diet attempts, I was starting to think it wasn't possible to lose weight at this age. Yesterday, after reading about the Shangri La diet online, I decided to give it a try. I took a tablespoon of ELOO at 10 am, and 2 more at 3 pm. Ohmigod. I ate one slice of pizza for dinner, followed by a small square of chocolate and didn't think about food for the rest of the night. I have NEVER, repeat, NEVER eaten only one slice of pizza before! LOL.
And the best part? I was down two pounds this morning. I suppose it could be just a coincidence, but I haven't been below 200 in a year and a half, and I was 199 this morning!
I know it's only been one day, but I really didn't expect anything to happen, so I was kind of shocked. I can't wait to see if it continues, for all of us!
(Note to Tekayla - Your post on this thread caused me to look for others by you. I read your progress thread and am really motivated to keep it up. Congratulations and thanks!)
