    Hi Purple Rose,
    I am also eating two meals a day, I try to only eat between 12 and 7. I am just over a week in and I have lost 2.5kg and even better my Blood sugar levels have come down a lot. I still get hungry quite a lot and am not sure if that will fade or not. But I find the two meals means I can have two meals which at least feel satisfying. Good luck with your journey!

    Hi TaytoP,
    Thank you for talking to me and share your experience.
    I want to stay this way at 1200 noon and at 1800as long I can.
    I will definitely make an effort.
    I just had my lunch, so far so good, I know that it will get harder by the day, yet I got into this situation and there’s no going back.
    Whatever it takes !
    Have a lovely day !

    Interesting facts!
    Talking about sleeping…..
    Myth: Dreams last only a few seconds.
    Reality: The average dream lasts 10 to 30 minutes. The final dream of the night is generally the longest and can last up to an hour!

    Hey Rose! Would you believe I have my bed North South . . . and have been known when away from home to actually move other beds to suit. Maybe some are more sensitive than others because I can feel Im not right. But I was told its to do with the magnetic pull of the poles. I do know, when I suggested this to my son and daughter-in-law when they were almost out of their minds with grand-daughter no.2 not sleeping well they were ready to try anything. Guess what? It worked and still to this day 8 years on . . . they arrange her room to accommodate the n-s theory. I often wonder when she was much smaller and in her cot which way she slept . . .? Whether or not she automatically put herself that way . . .? Also could explain part of why we are taller in the mornings!!! πŸ™‚ heheheh πŸ™‚ No wonder Im told Im weird. I just know Im not going to comply with traditions if it doesnt work for me πŸ™‚ HAGD All and maybe a good laugh too! I dont mind!

    Gem of the day πŸ’Ž
    Every wound leaves a scar, and every scar tells a story.
    A story that says, I survived!
    So, we are all here because we have common scars, somethings didn’t go quite the way we wanted in our lives. Either we lost a loved one, didn’t get that promotion, got divorced, lost custody, friends don’t call anymore, etc….
    We are all here, under same roof, for the same goal: to be pretty, to be acknowledged, to be respected, to be loved, to matter to someone.
    This is your motivation right here!
    Work hard to heal the scars, put a lovely dress πŸ‘— on and, feel special, feel attractive, feel ALIVE!

    is within us, and life can be beautiful and momentous, with each new day bringing hope and a new miracle to our doorstep.
    Enjoy it all!

    Hi PurpleRose,
    Sounds like you’re all sorted! πŸ™‚
    Welcome to these forums. πŸ™‚
    I can vouch that people here are friendly and patient too. They’ve needed to be with my barage of questions and hic-cups at my start last year.
    True too as you say we’re all here from life hassle’s and lessons that have sent us off on wrong eating paths, but now we have each other to help us through those days and know that there is a way of eating than can work. πŸ™‚
    To me that feeling of being in control of my weight has been wonderful. I’ve still got 9lbs to lose and my weight loss is slow but I’m happy as it’s a pace that I can live with. πŸ™‚

    Hello Aurora! Princess I believe! What a wonderful POSITIVELY worded post. Continued success with your body’s response to your nurturing. It is obviously responding in a positive way and revealing its true self to you . . . unveiling slowly but surely like a sheet being removed from a sculpture or – a blossoming flower πŸ™‚ Its quite exciting to be seeing who we really are . . .Well done!!!
