I started the program last Monday,
I have not weigh myself yet I will do so tomorrow.
Before I flip tomorrow b/c I don't believe I have lost any
weight at all. I look so bloated (maybe the water )
I'm getting so discouraged and I didn't even get on the scale
Has anyone felt like this before they weigh themself.
I'm so scared if the scale doesn't move that I will eat myself to no end tomorrow.
Really scare

Sorry to here that you are feeling scared. As long as you have no food allergies or other issues, as long as you are following the program the way that it is designed, you will lose weight. Hang in there, and get a baseline weight so you know where you are and so people can help you if you aren't losing.

Hope all goes well. We are here for you. Have a great day.

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

Hi, Renita. Did you weigh yourself? I'm betting that if you followed the program, you were pleasantly surprised. Let us know what happened!

In any case, you talk about eating if the scale didn't show a loss as if it's something out of your control. It's not. YOU are in charge of what you put in your mouth. Even if you showed a loss, and if you stay with the program and continue to lose, eventually you will stall; pretty much everyone does at some point. Does that mean that as soon as you don't get the results you're looking for, you're going to chuck it all and start eating junk again? The program works, but you need to work WITH it.

It takes courage to change your life and lose the weight, but you can do it. Please try not to let the fear take over.

Hi there,
Don't worry, you will part with the pounds. I myself just stayed off the scale for awhile. That way it didn't cause me any trouble.
And Robin, that was a great response ....we do need to take control!!
