I weighed this morning and I am at 199.8 and have only been doing this a little over a month. I am down at least by 20 pounds. That is amazing! I am basically doing the MWL and have been eating a lot of sprouts and potatoes. I have so many people around me that are being inspired by this. I have done the program in the past but living with two hunters that were very threatened by this lifestyle, staying focused while always cooking for them was a major struggle for me after awhile. Unfortunately my husband got MS about a year ago, we then lost out medical ins last month and he decided after watching Dr. McDougall's MS video that he was going to have to go the diet route instead of the very expensive dangerous drugs he was on. He has lost over 20 pounds also and my son who is 32 has lost 23 pounds. Both of them cannot believe how full and satisfied they feel and how easy it is to stay on track with good food. I cannot believe my son is eating vegan, am I in an alternate Universe? My hubby has also went gluten free because of the MS and has bout 80 more pounds to lose but I know that after losing that weight he is going to be in much less pain and that will be a blessing. I need to lose another 60 more or less and can't wait to get there because I have a micro-vascular disease that causes me constant leg pain so I am praying for relief in that area. I feel really blessed right now and feel that there is hope for us. As a family we believe in divine healing but following a discipline of right eating may be the path we are to take.
