Day one

Postby heres2me » February 18th, 2008, 10:04 am

Okay...I'm doing this starting today. I've tried to start a few times, but didn't have the willpower. I have a little more now, but I forgot how hard the first few days are. I had my shake for breakfast, then some tomato soup, and just had a bar. I don't know why, but I'm starving! I've had about 24 oz. of water so far. Anyway, please tell me how to get through these first few days. I know I'll be fine after that.

Hi Heres2me

If you can get through the first 3 days you can do it. Just drink our H2o. Drink as much as you can, it will really fill you up. Every time I have a supplement I try to drink 16 oz of water. I know it sounds like a lot :D

Oh and by the way WELCOME

1. Get busy to get your mind off of food.

2. Hot tea or coffee

3. Boullion (I used this any time I got hungry in the first few days)

4. Take a nap.

5. Drink lots of water. (1/2 of your current weight in ounces of water)

6. All of the above.

Jo's given you excellent advise! Stay focused on your goal and rest assured that while you are having a difficult time right now in a couple of days you will feel better for it. You have begun a plan that REALLY works! My best wishes to you! :D

Heres2me - You stated that you haven't had the "willpower". Something Dr Phil said on one of his shows that really struck home with me - he said that it's NOT about willpower - it's about reprogramming.
Good Luck to you!

Hi there. Good for you for getting started. I think Jo (Serendipity) gave you some of the best advice.
Remember, you also have a health coach and others that want you to succeed. Lean on them for support and help also.

Pre WLS 460
Low after WLS 300
Start of MF 350
Previous MF low 280
Restart MF 330

I have to be careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business.
