and I feel like crap!

Okay, so I started this medical weight loss plan, Remedy Weight Loss, on Friday. Basically, I do three of their shakes a day, plus their supplements, and 6oz of protein and 14 oz of a non-carb veggies every day. Oh, and at least 64 oz of water. (The water is easy, I already did that.)

I started out as 317 and today, three days later, I'm at 307. Okay, so I know that's mostly water weight, but a loss is a loss.

I'm desperate. I need to lose the weight so I can take care of other medical issues.

Oh, and this plan does ease you back into eating healthy, balanced meals.

Since I've been on this diet, and it's only been three days, my BG has ranged from 90-100 all day with only slightly higher morning readings.

As of November 18, I was down to 300. The second week I didn't lose nearly as much weight, but that's to be expected. I mean, I'd LOVE to lose 20 lbs a week, but let's face reality! lol

I'm feeling better, not having the headaches at all.

Oh, and this plan is medically supervised by a doctor.

I tried several diets over the years, but didn't get it right til my doctor recommended a certified diabetic educator to help me out. A certified dietition works with her and me. I am on a good keel right now and, coupled with some exercise, all the pieces are fitting together. Good luck!

I read some of your replies and there's really nothing profound that I can add except YOU GO GIRL…the carb withdrawls will end soon and the headaches will go away. I'm on a diet too to loose quite a bit myself. Maybe we can be friends and help eachother out. I have multi health problems too besides Diabetes 2. My heart and prayers are with you…Valentine Lady

Withdrawing from carbs is tough. But it will be worth it when you get into a routine and the weight comes off steadily. Keep talking positively to yourself. Know that you are working towards health and not just for "looks". You have the power to do it. Keep on keeping on. You only have to follow it for today. And at the end of today, you will have the feeling of satisfaction that no food can give you. God Bless you!

Something that I have found that helps me with the hunger in dieting is drinking warm liquids. I have been drinking hot herb teas along with my water to help keep me full. I know that might not be part of the plan, but it does help.

Your body is gong thru another change, so you probably will feel icky for a bit. But stay the course and it should get better. Are you under medical advisement with this plan? If you don't start feeling better soon, you might want to check with your doc to be on the safe side.
Good luck with your lifestyle change! Blessings, Mickey

Thanks for your support. I know the crappy feeling is just withdrawal from carbs, but I'm ready to move past the headaches and constant hunger. lol

I think if you tell someone they can't have something, it makes them want it so much more! :(

Sorry you feel like crap, but your BG is impressive. Hope you also get to feeling better.

I'm hoping that with this diet jumpstarting the process, I'll be able to get off the meds. It would be so nice to not have to remember to take pills every day.

Thats a drastic weight loss in a short time. You have to feel that. Your numbers are so so good though. Keep it up! You have to get out of this dangerous weight level. How many diets have you tried that don't work? I have! You are doing something for you and for life! You have a cheering squad in me! Good for you! Loose clothes, Here you come!!
