Welcome Susan! I'm pretty new to this 17DD too! Just started on Monday. Had a few stumbling blocks this week, but I've kept on moving. I haven't stepped on the scale at all. Going to wait until Monday. Once a week for me... so we'll see.

Good luck in your journey!!

Welcome, Susan!! So glad to have you here!

I think you will find great success on this plan, especially with this amazing group of people that are on the journey with you.

When I first started, I was super relieved that the food plan is so easy to follow because the first cycle is so easy and simple (as in basic). (I'm working 1 and a half jobs so I don't have a lot of time to spend in food preparation........)

Every so often I share my results so far as an incentive to others - the obvious change is my weight loss - but the things you can't see? My numbers - all my numbers are dead-on mid range now.....cholesterol, triglycerides (down from 135 to 65), etc., etc., etc.......what this plan does to heal the body is nothing short of miraculous!

BTW - I'm 70 years old - so age is no barrier - and now I feel like a 40 year old again.....very nice side effect, don't you think??

So - welcome aboard!! Look forward to seeing you here often -

Well hello and good luck. Not an easy diet to follow at first but you will get into it and you should certainly get results. I have lost more weight, more quickly, than ever before which is a great motivator when you are tempted to reach out for something not on your cycle list! Keep posting on the site and we all wish you a successful first week and rest of your life. emoticon

Hello Everyone! I am not new to Sparkpeople, but am trying the 17dd for the first time. I heard good things about the diet, read the entire book, and really think this could work for me. I've been "practicing" for the past few days but am committed to starting cycle 1 today! Looking forward to being an active member of this team and getting lots of sage advice from those of you who have been successful on this diet!
