I wanted to introduce myself and thank all of you for what you’ve put here to share with people like myself. I’ve struggled with weight all my life and I’ve done a lot of reflection and learning to understand why my previous weight loss attempts were unsuccessful. I’m quite excited by what Soylent is and how it can fit into my lifestyle.
For the better part of a year I tried the CMWL program and was on a strict 1400 calorie diet for months. As expected, I lost weight and some of my ability to taste during the experience. After a change in my daytime profession I ended the program and resumed normal eating. I had lost 40 pounds on the program as well as the ability to taste the things I love the most. After a year things were back to where I started, I weighed the same but could now taste again.
A few years passed this way and someone new came into my life who showed me what Paleo is and taught me a lot about eating I’d never taken the time to think about. This improved my eating quite a bit but I haven’t fully gotten into a routine yet that works for weight loss.
Today I went in for blood work and had my first bottle of 2.0 shortly after. I’m working on a food plan to put me in the 1900-2100 calorie area and increase my protein intake.
I’m going to have some questions for you as I keep reading everything I can. My goal is to drop 2.5 pounds a week for the next 18 weeks, then evaluate the path forward.
I look forward to becoming part of the community and having a success story of my own to share.
