Question 5 Years since I lost weight on Cohen's

I am sure this has been discussed many a time but wondered how many of you have gone back on your Cohen's original prescription the 2nd time around and have accomplished your weight loss. I last lost 5 years ago to my goal but didn't finish my refeed which I believe was my down fall, well the start of it.
Would be interested to hear your thoughts. Thanks!

Hi Paulajgr - go for it. I do go back to my original plan every now and then - unfortunately a bit more often of late. The latest was three weeks ago and I managed to lose 3kg in the first week which i was happy with as realistically I would like to lose 6kgs. The following weeks haven't been as good in loses however it is going down slowly and steadily. Even 5 years down the track I know that I need to consistantly work at controlling my eating - especially at the weekends.

Get your favourite dress out - make a realistic date with it and go for it. You have done it once, you can do it again.

Don't give up!!

My NYF Diary
Default Re: 5 Years since I lost weight on Cohen's

Hi Paula,
I have heard of several who have done this. Some were able to use the old Plan and it worked perfectly, while others found they were "starving" and had to buy a new one.

My thoughts about that are that our bodies change as time passes, so what might have suited a mid-twenties girl might not suit her as a 30-year-old who is now married and has had two children. As such, with that much change, the food amounts on Plan might no longer suit....

ConnieK is one who is around at the moment, and I recall her saying she has done Cohens again - I'm not sure whether she bought a new Plan or not, but Connie might drop in to say Hi, or you might find her current diary.

LittleMiss is another, also Kristine, Winterboots, the list is larger than that, but the names escape me. But just check out all recent diary entries to find those returnees and how they are travelling.

Re not completing Refeed, unfortunately that can set you right back in your "old ways". A read of the "Back on the Bus" topic can give you a humorous reminder of WHY one should tip-toe into Refeed and Maintenance. Though it is great to reach those milestones, the race doesn't end there if you want to be successful in keeping the weight off....

Here's "Back on the Bus" for you:-

Just a big happy hushpuppy
I haven't "done" Cohens - Asy knows me from way back - she invited me to "take a look" here - I did, loved it, and stayed...
And me? I'm a tall skinny bloke (BMI ~23) and have been this way forever, so I haven't faced (weight-wise) what you all have !!
