    Hi Lilly,

    I was really frustrated about gaining 60 lbs following this program. However, I have seen some health improvements and I feel great about not dieting anymore. I still desire to take off these extra pounds. Weight has always been a struggle for me.

    About a month and a half ago I read Jon Gabriel’s book “The Gabriel Method”. I was at first hesitant because I have spent so much money on nutrition information to only feel extremely confused. I’m so glad that I have read it, because it made so much sense to me. He teaches us that there are many factors that cause our body to want to put on weight. It does this to protect us. His method is not about dieting. He incorporates adding healthy foods to our diet while eating the same way we normally would. There is never any calorie counting. He also talks about the importance of working through the emotional and mental issues that have caused our weight gain.

    I highly recommend you get a copy of it. I first borrowed a copy from the library. Also, check out his site. Google his name. There is lot of information.

    I am down a size in jeans. I don’t weight myself and I don’t count calories. It is really easy. Very peaceable. I spend more time focusing on other things in my life.

    I hope this helps you. I wish you the best.

    Hi Dutchie! You have definitely given some me some food for thought. I would love to find relief from my nightly back pain. Gok does rock!

    Thank you for your post Lianda. I needed to hear that as well, so I can focus on giving myself a positive body image too! I will have to look into EFT Tapping.

    I’m very happy I found this discussion. I read the birth control article and wondered about the mirena iud. I got it when I was restrictive dieting. I started recovery and refeeding in May. I put on alot of weight. I cramp often with no bleeding. I dont even know when my period is. I’m not sure if my body can fully recover with it. I’m unsure if some of the uncomfortable things i’ve experienced are from the birth control or from recovery. I definitely have some decisions to make.

    Hi Linda,
    This is my first post. I have come to the forums often to find some inspiration or even to relate to others who are experiencing the same thing.

    I started getting back pain when I sleep a couple of years ago. Some days are better than others. I also wake up often in the middle of the night. Good old adrenaline rush.

    I was hoping to see improvement now that I am eating the food. It seems like a roller coaster. I have gained alot of weight as well…about 50 pounds. I’m heavier than when I started dieting in the first place. I am extremely frustrated. I often feel like you do about now wanting to go out in public. I know part of this journey is coming to accept ourselves at any weight.

    One thing I do to help myself feel better is look up photos of gorgeous plus-size models. I also started watching this U.K. series called “How to Look Good Naked”. It is available to stream on Hulu Plus. I like that this fashion guru takes real women and helps them build confidence in themselves. It is definitely uplifting.

    I think that you and I, and others like us will find a way to strengthen each other. I just wonder if the recovery takes a lot longer than we orignally thought it would.
