Golden Rules, Weigh In

4 Golden Rules – After Lunch Day 4 – Down 7 Pounds!

I now weigh an even 250 pounds.  That’s seven pounds less than I weighed on Monday morning.  I am eating less.  I am enjoying my food more.  I have more energy.  I cannot believe how easy this plan is to follow.

After following the ‘Golden Rules’ for four days, I can report the following –

I have learned how to listen to my stomach – I know when I am hungry and I know when I am full.  Now, this might seem like something that we all know intuitively, but, I think that most people struggle to quit eating when they are full.  By taking my time – and really thinking about each and every bite – I’ve learned that I get full after only a few bites.

I have learned how important it is to drink water – and a lot of it.  I never realized how much better I would feel when hydrated.  A lot of overweight people refuse to drink a lot of water – fearing the dreaded ‘water weight’.  I’ve done a little research – and water weight has nothing to do with how much water is consumed.  It has to do with how much sodium is consumed.  Drinking several glasses of water a day keeps me full and helps with various bodily functions.

I get to eat what I want.  Period.  I eat steak or a cookie or corn or a potato or sunflower seeds or a pickle or candy or oatmeal or…  I fix it.  I sit down at the table.  I eat a few bites.  I drink my water.  I’m full.  I’m satisfied.  I’m done.

I know that I should step away from the scale.  But, I’m so amazed by how simple this program is, that I can’t help but want to see the progress I’m making.  But, I promise, I will not weigh myself until Monday.  I promise!

  1. Hey…am a fan of No Credit Needed and now this blog too. I too saw the program on TLC and love, love, love this eating plan. It’s absolute common sense…but we somehow have completely lost our common sense about how to eat in today’s culture. Now that I “get it” I’m eating way less and have no problem with the thought of doing things this way forever…unlike every other diet I’ve ever tried, which always deprived me of something, which I’d miss, then cave and binge, and undo all my HARD work. This is just relearning how to eat like a normal person and letting your body take care of itself. I am tickled pink.

  2. Hey, I’ve been reading your blog all week (and just starting to check out No Credit Needed which I’m in serious need of myself). I’ve been following the Paul McKenna system now this week and weighed in this morning and found I’m down 4 pounds in just 4 days. Whats great is this isn’t a diet, but just relearning how to properly eat. I’m really pumped about this.

    I’m keeping track of my progress at and started a “I Can Make You Thin” group on Traineo also (yeah there are forums on too, but I’m not sure how long that will stay free).

    Keep up the great work!
