    Hi Everyone!! I just got my drops today and have started already. I have been preparing by drinking half my water weight for a few days. I already eat nuts as a snack.

    I am so hopeful that this will work as I have between 40-50 pounds to lose. I was pregnant with my second child when I got into a car accident that left me with permanent back damage. My shoulder dislocated in 3 places (including collarbone collapse-which led to the removal of a few inches of it) 2 shoulder surgeries in 6 months, and lower spine damage permanently. Given the fact that I was unable to move very much for over 2 years (including having to sleep on the couch for that time!) 🙁 I have been unable to lose the 40 pounds of pregnancy weight that I gained. I have been slowly trying to exercise here and there, but need to be careful due to easily causing damage. I really hope this helps!

    Hi Jody – Congratulations on starting this plan. Changing your eating habits and developing a healthier lifestyle will give you so many great benefits. Adding in even mild exercise – walking and gentle stretching – is fantastic! Wishing you the very best!

    Thanks Robyn! I’m not much of a snacker, or an eater over all, but I do love pizza and bread…but I do have good willpower, so I am hoping that I can do this!

    Yesterday wasn’t too hard, but I honestly didn’t meet the calorie goals and I was short a few items. I really tried, but I found that with all of the water and trying to get in extra meals, compared to what I normally eat I felt really full and bloated at the end of the night and just had no more room!

    Hi Jody, I’m sure you’ll do really well here. After what you have been through you’re already showing enormous strength and willpower by exercising where you can and I take my hat off to you.

    Thank you so much for the nice remarks! I don’t wish to complain because I know there are so many people who have it worse than me and I am grateful everyday that my kids are happy and healthy! It is also very encouraging to hear that people have struggled but that overall this is working for people!
