Hello everyone, don't know if this is too good to be true, but today is day 3 and I'm down 2 1/2 lbs. I'm very skeptical as a result of 20 yrs. of yo-yo dieting. I am 44, 261 3/4 lbs. now. I would hesitate to tell people what I am doing, since it sounds so nutty. My appetite has been decreased, but more importantly, I'm not constantly thinking about food. How wonderful to live life just like 'normal' people!!!! Anyway, like I said I'm still skeptical, though optimistic. On the scale this morning, as soon as I saw the # I was surprised to say the least. I got off the scale, washed my face, and decided to try the scale again, just in case all the weight molecules hadn't had a chance to get on the scale the 1st time with me. Seriously, I was expecting the # to be higher the 2nd time I stepped on the scale. How awesome would it be if this is the final answer for so many of us?
