I started on the 12th too!! My first time and I'm so hoping for results. I have been carrying an extra 40-45 lbs. since I had my 2nd child at 42 (4 yrs ago) and I am over it already. I've always been in good shape, working out, and trying to eat right most of the time. This time, no matter what I do, the weight refuses to come off. For the past 1 1/2 yrs I've spent 5 days a week, 90 minutes a day in the gym and eaten 1500-1700 calories a day (low fat and low carb), still no results. My labs are great (cholesterol, blood pressure, hormones (DHEA was slightly low), thyroid, liver panel, etc) Completely frustrating!!! My doctor agrees that this would probably be the best next step for me to try to kick my metabolism and hypothalamus gland into gear like it used to be. I've had co-workers who have done it and lost weight. Some kept it off, some didn't. Those that didn't went right back to their old ways of eating out in the wrong places every day again and NOT working out after the loss. I will NOT have that problem because I do not do it now!! If you'd like to keep in touch and give support to one another through this, feel free. (Email: Like you, I'm on day 4...Today I had lost 3.6 lbs since yesterday!! I'm ready for the slowdowns, but don't care as long as there is a steady downward number on that scale!! Good luck to you!! (BTW...I've got 45 lbs to lose, so I'm guessing I'll have to do two rounds to get all of this off by mid July)
