Success Stories

I'm an Addict
(amyluby)

I can not believe how much I am a carbohydrate addict. I remember seeing the Hellers on TV and being so excited because it was me they were talking about, my mother bought me the book, and then I found out I was pregnant, a good thing, but the book got put away, until recently when I ran into a friend who had lost 57 lbs. She was on the Atkins diet, and I remembered the book.

It has only been a week that my husband and I have been on the Lifespan program, but what a difference. I have no more overwhelming cravings for carbs. Its like I've been freed. Seriously, I have to force myself to eat. I can't begin to express how I feel, I just keep thinking, 'it will come back, it won't last, the cravings will return, its all in your head' I'm scared this won't last. I look at a carb with disdain now. I think 'you did this to me, you have been controlling me, now I'm controlling you.' I am an addict, but now I now the way out.

I can not express what this means. I have been on this 7 days and didn't go off it once, I wasn't even tempted to, and I look forward to tomorrow. I remember reading in the book that after awhile you may want to skip a meal, I laughed to myself, but after only 7 days, I am having to encourage myself to eat. You don't know me, but that is a miracle.

All that stuff about this WOE being bad for your health, being obese is bad for your heart.
