Newbie getting started
I'm a 28 yo female, 5'9'' and was 220.6 pounds when I started. After my first week on the diet I lost 6.7 pounds and had my first cheat day yesterday where I gained back 4.1 pounds. I'm joining the forum so I can share my story but also be motivated by others! My goal weight is 160 pounds and I'm hoping to make significant progress in the last 4 months of 2011! I hope to be at least to 181 pounds by 1/1/2012.
I really like the diet so far and I feel good doing it. The past week I wasn't hungry all the time, and I wasn't thinking about junk food all the time. I easily resisted office goodies and am very excited about this new lifestyle!

GF, you can do this! Can't you see yourself down 35-40# on or before New Year's Day 2012?
I highly recommend taking those before photos, proper measurements, and following Tim's advice on mindset principles.
Now, a super tool Tim gave us to tame any cravings which might creep up is to write down anything that tempts you and declare I am have a ton of this on Dieter's Gone Wild day!
Good work! It's been two weeks for me. My brother and co-worker have lost 30 lbs. doing this diet and still eat to the lifestyle. Congrats on your weight loss! My brother advised me not to weigh myself after cheat day but wait until the following wednesday. I did so this mornign and have no weight gain! I am stoked to see what my weight will be saturday morning.
Welcome to the fold!
Yes, it's quite awesome! I'm a 42 yo female, 5'2" and WAS 247 lbs when I started on April 18, 2011. I am now 200 lbs as of last Saturday(hopefully going to ONE-DERLAND here soon!) and I have lost 29".
My ultimate goal is 115 lbs, which means 85 lbs to go! So, probably by about the year mark or a little past that I should reach it. In the 19 weeks I've been on SCD, I have had only ONE gain (.2 lbs) and have never stalled...slowed down, but NOT stalled!
I do 3 of the 4 Ice Age Techniques. Ice Packs(since the end of May), Ice Cold Water(since the beginning), and Cold Showers(Since the end of July)
Do you have a Facebook account? I have a great support group with other women who are also on SCD/TLM or on their own plan. Let me know via my profile if you are interested.
