Patience is in order...I've been on the diet since November, while I 
pretty much took a month off (end of December through mid January), I've 

lost nearly 20 pounds. People who don't see me often (like my parents) 

comment on how I look like I lost weight. I didn't feel like I've lost 

weight for a while, cause I actually had gained a significant amount 
before starting. ANYWAY, I have lost nearly 20 pounds, and the jeans I 

bought shortly before starting the diet, are now getting to big for 
me...I went bowling the other night, and I couldn't keep them up. More 

importantly, I have more energy (probably cause my body isn't using 
just the sugars that I would give it through pop and candy) and using 
what it gets properly, and I feel better. When I do make a slip, or go 

overboard on S days (Like this past one, at a large get-together) I feel 

sluggish, or outright sick. That healthier feeling is what has kept me 

on this diet, and will keep me going. I personally am not like Reinhart 

says, I want candy, every day, I wanna go into the fridge at work, and 

grab one of those snickers that are in there...but, if I start walking 

towards it, I just tell myself, "no you don't need that." and turn 

around. That also is a great feeling. The only other diet I tried was 
the Weight Watcher's point system, or Jenny Creig, or whoever does 
that...And I'm much more satisfied with this one...It stops me from 
having that candy, not letting me go "Oh, I've got 10 points to spare 

today" Cause I usually did.
Anyway, I ramble alot, good luck...And stick it out!
