    hi I am new here.. i'm disperate and need help. I am 5'1 and weigh almost 160 or maybe already. I stop weighing myself because it discourage me. I had 3 cesarean and I gained my weight since my first one and never return to normal weight. its hard for me to control my eating because im cooking constantly for family and I tend to eat with them. I just had my hysterectomy surgery 6 wks ago and gained another 10 lbs while recovering. i'm still not working as of now because it involves heavy lifting and I don't think I manage it as of yet.

    This is just my personal experience... I went from 191 lbs to 145 lbs in just 3 months. The only thing is that you have to be VERY strong, and stick to it EXACTLY. This is what you do: For three days you eat two eggs, (anyway you like) for breakfast, and (as much as you like) of grilled chicken salad with a light dressing for lunch and dinner. Then you will go to 4 vegetables-2 cooked and 2 raw, 2 proteins, and 3 fruits a day! These are not all you can eat they are measured- for example 9 cherries is a serving. 7oz is a serving of protein-you can only eat beef and tunafish 2x in a 7 day week and beef can only be 5oz. you are able to have 1 fat a day (butter, mayo, etc) and two servings of carbs (crackers, bread, brown rice, small potato) last two only 3x a week. You will need to take a multi-vitamin every day and drink 80 ozs of water. I personally walked 45 min a day, but it is NOT necessary

    hi dmlmfl07
    I am going to give this a try.
    I will post how it works out for me,
    thank you so much for posting it. It does not seem like it is very hard to follow, I would also like to lose about 40 - 50 lbs. ...I would like to start this tomorrow, and i will, it says you can have your eggs anyway you want them. I like them scrambled , I dont think you can add milk to them ????
    Once again I will let you know how it goes for me, kinda excited about trying it. as I have tried so many weightloss programs, and I need to get this weight off .
    Once again , thank you so much for posting it. ..
