I wasn't fat but I had the hugest stomach - like a basketball! I'm 5'11 so
it was harder to notice, plus I just learned how to dress so that my
stomach wasn't all that visible. No matter how long or how hard I tried,
I couldn't ignore the candy and donuts. If a dozen Dunkin' Donuts were
brought into the office I had one. Then a second. Only politeness held
me off from the third unless there were some left around 4 then I
considered them fair game and ate those. Once I ate 3/4 of a birthday
cake. Errands were fun - I did a candy bar on the way in and out of every
store. I could do several/day and finish it up with half a package of
oreos. Was it great to get that monkey off my back. I ended up losing 30
lbs, though no one knew it. But that's not why I did the McCombs plan.
I did it because I hated feeling as if I was pumped full of air. And I
hated being a slave to candy, cookies, ice cream, which is why they were
never in my house. SEE YA CANDIDA! It was NOT nice knowing you! Plus I
don't have allergies, succumb to bronchitis at the drop of a hat, or have
a problem with cats anymore either. Round 2 comes up in fall of 2008.
