Keep up the hard work and stick to the basics....remember, most people revert back to their old ways. You must remain diligent and dedicated....

CONGRATS!

Sounds like you went about it the right way. I'm about to start my diet/work out to lose weight. I am at my heaviest I've been. I have to watch out for diabetes since it runs in my family.

damn, it took me near 2 months to lose 25lbs. But all i did was cut out drinking soda. So all i drink now is water and diet tea.

I no longer snack between meals, never feel hungry and each meal is a plate full.
I just thought I would share my success with you all!
Now thats fantastic . Great job as excersize is SO important young or old . And eating right . No magic !!

I have been in the VA healthcare system since 1993 and have never heard of that special diet. I know people that have lost 40 lbs in 2 weeks by reducing their diet to 1500 calories daily....of course they were 350 lbs and the fatter you are the faster the weight comes off when you simply eat properly. Something doesn't sound on the up and up with a 700 calorie starvation diet....makes no sense at all, crazy diets like that are meant for 1-2 weeks ONLY!
Been a 60% DAV and a Type 1 diabetic since being injured in Bosnia........a hellhole we should have never been in.

I lost 110 lbs in 1 minute when I dumped my cheating G/F in High School.

Update - to answer dvrich's comment - The Minneapolis VA is the ONLY VA in the U.S. with this weight loss program. It's called "MOVE" (you can google it and learn more about it) and yes, we ate only 700-800 calories a day. (which I still do to this day)

Now, it's been nearly 45 days since I was in the "Intensive" program and since then, have lost an additional 20lbs.
