    Hello,
    my name is Doerte, I am originally from Germany but live now in Canada BC.
    I am 47, married for 24 with three children. I was lucky and never really had to fight with my weight until I had my third child when I was 36. Since then my weight is going up, up up and up, slightly 1-2 pounds a year. My wardrobe is full of clothing I will wear again when I lost these pounds, but the reality is – I never did. I tried by cutting out my sugar intake (I could just survive on fruits – but of course they have sooo much sugar). I was radical and stopped from one day to the other. Yes it slowed down the process but not for long :(, then I stopped all milk products – and my weight actually went down 🙂 then it started again the weight climbed once more. By that time I was not eating right and I lost control, I ate uncontrolled when I came home from work and have not eaten all day. Because I was soooo hungry I ate what I got my hands on – mostly chips. Desperately I went to my Doctor for help, she told me it is my age and I eat too little. GRRRRR
    So now I have breakfast, snack, lunch, snack and dinner and I feel hungry if I miss one of them – but I gained 2 pounds more 🙁 / and no I still avoid sugar, bread, pasta, chips, candy, my fruit intake is controlled, still avoid milk products as well – and yeah I drink lots of water.

    Exercise?? Yes I love to hike, bike, kayak and horseback riding. I work in a office but every lunch break I go walking as long as it is not raining.

    Now – my cloths are no longer hiding that I am obese, I am devastated and desperate for a cure not only that I just have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my knee joints and have to undergo surgery this year. One thing you can do to help with this disease is to loose weight – here we go again :(((

    So lets do this than – I just picked up my PS1000 Slim parcel today – and I feel ready to get started and I am glad I am not doing this on my own, you are here with me too – I need you all to help me through and I hope that my story then will inspire others.

    My weight goal is 20lb, if more than I would be more than happy 😉

    Hey Everyone! My name is Tiffany. I just placed my order for the program. I did a lot of research and looked up reviews good and bad and was surprised to find a lot more good then bad. So I decided to give it a shot! Looking forward to getting healthier with the help of this. I already work out 3-4 times a week at the gym and have started eating better (not perfect, but better) and I am struggling to get the weight off. Watching my brother drop the weight and me still bouncing and sometimes gaining has been frustrating. I hope this is the thing that helps me jump start and get on the right track.

    I’m new and received my order today. I’m reading and trying to put together my grocery list for the week. Looking forward to starting this journey, and keeping my fingers crossed that all the good reviews are true. 😉

    Hi, my name is Sandy and I live in Columbus, Ohio. Lots to do here in Columbus but unfortunately I haven’t been able to join in, partly due to my weight. Since I got fat, I tire easily, and so there goes the trips to art festivals, concerts, etc. I need to lose almost 100 pounds, but I’d be happy to just lose 50, hoping that will get my blood sugars under better control. I have gained weight during my first week, but I feel better, so I’m going to keep the faith for at least a month. If there’s no weight loss by then, I’m going the death-by-chocolate route!

    Nice to see friendly and chatty folks here 🙂

    Hi, I am starting PS1000 today and so far so good; no hunger and no headaches. Emotionally feeling great that I have made the commitment to lose weight and am looking forward to the days ahead.

    Hi, my name is Barb and I just received my book and drops. Planning to spend the next couple days reading the plan and figuring out a meal plan to get me through a week. I am allergic or don’t like a lot of meat so this could be challenging to get my protein in. I am a really big carb addict. Being positive that this time changing my diet will work to get the weight off. Good luck to all.
