I’m a proud New VIP to have stuck with the program even though my primary reason to join was to lose weight. I’m was 312 lbs and have only lost 5 lbs. I don’t stay on protocol, but have tried to focus on the sussessed I have had and figure the weight will follow.
– I’ve reduced drinking from every day to 2 days per week!
– I’m no longer on antidepressants and don’t struggle with depression, and found SCS far more helpful than therapy.
– I fulfilled a dream of taking my Neice and Nephew to Japan for their 14th birthday!
– After 20 years dealing with a difficult boss, I’m buying him out of the business and will be 50/50 partner (with the other principal I like) and will buy him out over the next 4 Years at which point I will own my own architecture firm!

This month’s topic of purpose has caused me to buckle down and focus on weight loss. I’m 7 days on protocol, no sugar or flour and have an 8 hr. Eating window / 17 hr. Fast. How do I keep this up? I don’t want to fail again, I don’t want to give up, I want to honor myself. I have had a weight problem since childhood and I’m 51, I can do so much in life but don’t control my eating….if I’m so smart why can’t I lose the weight?
(Yes I read your book) 🙂
