3 Weeks Into my lifestyle change!!
« on: February 13, 2015, 02:38:13 PM »
Hello to the FTS family! My name is Samantha, and I wanted to share my success so far after reading this book.  I started my lifestyle changes on January 23, 2015 weighing in at 306.2lbs.  Today, (February 13, 2015) I weighed in at 291.2lbs!!! 15lbs gone, and I know I've lost inches, just haven't had time to track measurements!  I have been soda free this entire time, and thank God I haven't had any cravings.  I can say there have been many opportunities/temptations around me but I have stayed strong and haven't slipped up once!!  I will say that ever since a SherriPie encouraged me to try this book, it has changed how I look at food, how I look at myself as a person.  I have confidence that I CAN lose weight, and be healthy without having surgery.  I am so excited about this book, I have gotten my husband to join me on this journey as well as my mother (who lost 9lbs in her first week)!! I am forever grateful that SherriPie spoke encouragement to me, and challenged me to try this book.  Keep up the good work FTS family!! We are all on a path to better lives!!

I am so happy for you! You are doing fantastic. I am just shy of a week into this way of life and am truly loving it. Grocery shopping is so much easier because I pass up most of the inner aisles! Doug's book really explained things in ways that I could easily understand and implement!
