Glad to hear it. How does this diet work long term?
Rob,The diet is with the Kaiser Permanente Positive Choice program. You have to attend weekly classes and you pay $110 a week, plus maintenance fees, so it's expensive, but well worth it. They give you some formula called Optifast and you get five of them a day, plus two Hot 'N' Slim soups if you wish, so it's either 420 or 510 calories a day. I have been working out every day except the Lord's Day, and I also have a personal trainer. I plan on, after I reach my goal, eating six small meals a day and keeping an active lifestyle (training and working out), using common sense in the foods I choose and how often I eat them, and weighing myself every day to keep close tabs. For myself, that is what I just have to do.
Josh,Did you take a before and after picture of yourself?
Anonymous,I have a before picture, both side and front profile. I will take an after picture when I meet my goal. But, even after that my goal is to get ripped. :0)
Josh, Congratulations on the weight loss. Just found your site -- in the midst of reading J. Stuart Russell's "The Parousia" and needed a break. I'm a recovering Baptist who never quite bought into the pre-trib interpretation and have spent the past 25 years asking pesky questions every time the topic arose in Sunday School. But I digress from the diet post. Since last January I've lost 95 pounds on a similar diet at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. With my hubby in Iraq I figured I should do something radical for the year. Rejoice that you are learning to rely on the Holy Spirit's promised fruit of self-control and NOT drugs or surgery. You will learn far more this way. I know I have. I'll pray for you, brother. No journey worth taking is easy.
Hubbard Mommy,Please be careful with "The Parousia." The book promotes a heresy called full preterism which teaches that Christ already returned. Perhaps I will post on this in the future.
