New, but learning

Posts: 20
Hey all,
I have been on LDL for about 6 weeks and I have lost 12 lbs and 1 full size!  I love it!  I saw Roger Troy on Channel 13 News in Houston as I was getting dressed one morning and could not believe what I was hearing.  The foods he was saying I should eat.....the foods I loved....were the very same foods that had me chastising myself for eating on other plans.  I love frozen grapes and cherries, popcorn, fresh fruit, beets, three bean salad and I could not believe he was telling me to eat those foods and I would lose weight.  I couldn't wait to get to work so I could look up the website!

I read through some of the postings and decided to order the book right away.  The book was delayed in arriving so I called about it and Roger Troy actually got on the phone and talked to me about LDL.  The book arrived that afternoon and I spent the rest of the night reading it and started the plan the very next day.  I love not having to worry about eating bread, pasta, potatoes and rice.  I just tell people, "I don't do those items."  I find that I am better able to discern what my body needs....a little starch (corn or beans).....a little more protein (beans or meat).  The CRAVINGS are GONE!  Seriously, you could put my favorite (past favorite), chocolate brownies in front of me and I would have no problem passing them up!

I know we are not supposed to weight everyday, but I did at first and found unbelievably that I had lost 8 lbs in the first week!  The loss has slowed since then, but my body is changing, my clothes fit differently, I feel great, and let's face it....LDL is sooo easy to do,why would I do anything else.  I have had times that I could have eaten off the plan, but why would I!?

I am so grateful that I was watching that program that morning and that Roger Troy is sharing his plan with the world.  It was just what I needed to give myself permission to eat the foods that my body wanted anyway and to do it guilt free!  Thank you Roger Troy and all of you who post here!

Hi, ko4cross. Congratulations on your weight loss! Isn't it great to lose weight and not crave anything!

Thanks so very much for the testimonial! Could you please do me the favor of posting this same story as a "NEW TOPIC" on this Testimonials Board. Thanks for doing this, as then your success story will be read by many more people than will read it here as a "reply" to a new topic.

You stated the same thing I am telling people now in my seminars...sure, I would love eating pizza, French fries & potato chips, but why should I when I don't crave them, and have lost all the weight I wanted and kept it off by not eating them?...my body is totally satisfied with all the healthy starchy carbs that Let's Do Lunch affords!

Now, as far as chocolate is concerned, I, also like you, have no problem passing it up because my body now craves the sweetest fresh fruits and fruit smoothies...in other words, my body now craves non-fattening fruit sugar instead of fattening regular sugar.

Our Father in Heaven has definitely blessed you, just as He has blessed the rest of us with Let's Do Lunch.

Thanks again for posting your success story again, as a "new topic".

God bless,

Roger Troy

hi ko.....i had a LONG day at work today..reading your posting made up for it....i smiled while i read most of it....isn't it GREAT?...there are times when i can't believe it...i'm NOT on a diet and i lost 30 pounds in 6 months....when you said that about passing up your favorites?....just today,i pointed to a big table in the diniing room and told someone that they could lay out ALL my favorite foods and it wouldn't phase me.......in the old days,if i was on a diet,i would buy the flavors of ice cream that i didn't really like....i wouldn't buy any of the things that i REALLY liked..NOW,i buy the ice cream that everyone likes..my old favorites...all kinds of stuff that i was never able to resist .....I COULDN'T CARE LESS......it's the most liberating feeling in the world......
   i feel the way you do....that i'm eating my favorite things.....i love fruit and i love beans......sometimes it makes me feel guilty when i hear someone who doesn't like some of the things we're allowed to eat when i love EVERYTHING......
  have you tried any of the bean soup recipes on the boards?.....there are so many...and some really easy ones.....mary's white bean soup and israeli chick pea soup...and i posted greek bean soup which is really easy and can be made with any beans...the absence of sugar/grains/nuts/seeds stabilizes your blood sugars....beans are like the police...they make sure your blood sugars stay that way......read my post on the discussion board "beans..they're what's for lunch AND dinner" and on tips for healthy living,kay posted "eat beans and be a string bean"..........i can't stress enough how important they are.....BUT,you might have learned that already...............
  keep the portable snacks around handy so that you're NEVER HUNGRY.....popcorn,soynuts,roasted chick peas(if you can find them)
   i see that you already know that you're going to lose ALL THE WEIGHT YOU WANT TO LOSE...i'm SO HAPPY that you have found let's do lunch and our boards.....WELCOME............sincerely,niki

Hi, Penny. Thanks for posting Jim's great start in losing 15 pounds! Please tell him congrats, from all of us! And, that we are all very proud of what he has accomplished!

I know it doesn't sound like much to him, but please tell him that, in my opinion, he is establishing the only healthy way to lose weight that he can actually live with for the rest of his life.

Please tell Jim that it won't be long before he knows that he will be able to not only lose the weight, but keep it off!

God bless,

Roger Troy

Hey, Harley! Welcome! And absolutely don't wait for weeks to pass to get started - start right now! Have your smoothie for breakfast, make up some bean soups, chilis, and other recipes from the boards, gather your salad ingredients, and pull some popcorn, CornThins, roasted soy nuts, fruits, raisins, and some sliced fat-free cheeses together and get going. Start to modify your eating plan right now and get rid of all the junk in the house so you'll already be in the state of mind to be successful on the plan. All the info that's needed is right here on the boards. If you read all the posts, you'll find out 99% of what you need to know. Wishing you happy cooking and much success! .......nyKath

Hi, Harley. Please read my reply to the message entitled "Lose Weight", which is on the General Discussion Board and you will be well on your way to establishing the only healthy way to lose weight that you can actually live with for the rest of your life.

Be sure to get your doctor's approval before starting Let's Do Lunch.

Hey all!  I'm new to ldl.  My dad, Mike, has been on the program for quite some time and, after seeing his success, my kids and I decided to try it.  Well, I'm very excited to say that we've been on the program for almost 3 weeks and I've lost 12 pounds, my daughter, Lexi (age 12) has lost 4 pounds, and my son, Samuel (age 10), has lost 2 pounds!  This is very exciting for us because we've all had weight problems for as long as we can remember and this is finally something that works for all of us!  Thanks Roger for figuring out the easiest way I know of to lose weight!

I am brand new to the LDL program . There is a lady from my hometown who has definitely dropped a ton of weight with this program and suggested it to me.  I am 25 and just recently gave birth to my first "and last" child.  She is perfect and 3 months old today. I had a rough recovery from a c-section because i developed a hematoma that just healed about 2 weeks ago (calculated, that is 2 1/2 months after delivery)...it was no fun, but the inactivity kept me from losing the baby weight faster.  i am currently about 188 lbs and need to get down to around 150 if not less...but to me it isn't about  what the scale says, but how I look and I want to be a "hot mama".  I look forward to reading all of your comments. I have spent hours on this site lately just reading success stories and recipes...I am so ready for my book to arrive.  Happy Losing everyone !

Welcome from me, too!  I think all of us women with kids want to be "hot mamas!!!"  Sadly, no matter how "hot" we think we look, it won't take too long till the day the child we adore tells us to please wait in the car instead of getting out at the school, because we embarrass them.  >:(  Oh well, as long as we know we're looking good......  You gave me a morning smile.  This is an easy way to lose weight and keep healthy while we watch our little ones grow.  Welcome!

Welcome from me, also!  I love to hear that someone that has lost a lot of weight recommended the program - and then we hear from the person that they talked to!!  If that person doesn't mind, I'd love to know who it is... not for anything in particular - Just nosey!!  :)

This is a baaadddd thing - my sister-in-law had this 20 years ago.  She did end up having another child, but it was 4 years later.  (Thankfully, it didn't happen again!)

adholland - you'll do fine - and again, welcome!
