Success Stories

Debra's Success Story
(Debra - grandmadebra)

I did CAD a couple of years ago for the first time. I was on it for 6 months & lost a lot of weight. While on vacation, I went off it (still 20lbs over my goal) & never really returned. I struggled keeping the weight off for over a year. I watched myself gain & lose the same 15lbs. This last year my weight had creeped back up to 167lbs. While on vacation last April, I was visiting my brother in California. He had lost 35lbs since I saw him at Christmas. He was on the Atkins diet. I was so impressed :)

I knew I could not totally give up carbs... and remembered CAD. The day I returned from vacation I started this WOE. That was 11 weeks ago. I have lost 20lbs so far... and have 12 to lose before I reach my goal. I know I'm going to make it this time because of all the support I'm getting from this message board. I have lost anywhere from .5 to 2lbs per week since I started.

I found this board 6 weeks ago while searching for more information about CAD/CALP. I "lurked" for a week before I decided to join. (I've never been on a message board and was a little reluctant).

I believe that I would have gone off this WOE by now if I wasn't here posting every day & being accountable. I would have settled for less than where I really want to be.
