I am planning to start this today: http://www.thinwithin.org/ (NOTE it is Christian-based, so you are warned before you click…)
I may order some of the materials when I can, but I know I can do this for a while even without that.
I followed the “Weigh Down” principles from 1999-2002 and managed to lose and pretty much keep off about 25-30 pounds and was pregnant with Ryan after and delivered him and then went back to my pre-pregnancy weight. The problems started when I abandoned the principles in late 2002 when I got bored with it and stressed out when I went back to work.
Then I discovered Weigh Down’s fundamental “religious” principles were flawed and the leader pretty much was put down in shame by all the churches and her program is now rare to find in a church.
But I had found this Thin Within program which I see has been around since the 70’s, that is very similar, but seems to have a much more sound Biblical based foundation that is not laid into a cult.
Anyway, I hope to have similar success to what I did in the late 90’s and am starting today — waiting for hunger and stopping before full!
(Brushing my teeth and drinking water between meals always helped me…)
