Do you want to know how to lose weight and keep it off FOR GOOD? I used to want to know that too! Forget “dieting” because that doesn’t work. Stop planning to run for two hours a day on the treadmill. I started this Weight Loss Story blog because I finally did find a way to lose weight effectively, with a program by Isabel De Los Rios called: The Diet Solution.
Why Did I Want To Lose Weight?
I hated the way I looked in my bathing suit. I used to be a swimmer, but I imagine now I looked more like a beached whale while tanning.
I wanted to feel sexy again in bed. My husband and I have always had great intimacy in our marriage, but when you’re 250 pounds let’s just say some things are more difficult.
I found out I was prediabetic. If I didn’t get my own weight loss story, I could face diabetes for the rest of my life.
3 Little Problems In My Way
Problem #1: I hated working out. Who wants to see a sweaty, 250 pound woman bouncing around on the treadmill? Not me.
Problem #2: I hated dieting. Dieting has never worked for me. I always just gained all the weight back after. Dieting = torture.
Problem #3. I hated weight loss pills. I’ve tried both diethylpropion and orlistat (doctor prescribed). Supposed to limit appetite and make you not digest fat. Instead they gave me constipation and abdominal cramps worse than my Period. Yeah, not fun. Do not attempt.
How Could I Lose Weight Without Dieting or Exercising?
That sounds like the laziest question ever. But I was just being REALISTIC. I told my doctor I refused to go on another diet. And me going to the gym every day was just not going to happen. I needed a weight loss plan for me.
A few weeks later, I came across The Diet Solution. It was a program made for women who hate dieting. The way you lose weight is BY EATING. That’s right. The program is not about dieting, but about eating. Sounds too good to be true, right? That’s what I thought.

I purchased the program online and just followed everything it said. I kept a success journal, used the meal plans, the shopping list helper, and even the diet solution recipe guides. It basically tells you how to plan meals, what to cook, and what food to buy at the grocery store. All you really do is follow the instructions. You even get personal email consultation with the author if you have questions.
My Weight Loss Story
Basically, here’s my weight loss story in a nutshell: Within 10 days on the program, I noticed my pants were loose. After a month, I was down 2 notches on my belt. After two months, I had lost 19 pounds. By month three, I was at 28 pounds. This pace continued, and after a year I had lost 100 pounds!
It sounds so simple, but really it was! An idiot could do this program. I say that as a compliment to the author, Isabel De Los Rios. Basically she’s done all the work, all YOU do is follow what she says.
The one thing I didn’t like about the program is that it’s only available as an eBook. At first I thought this would be a problem, because I like having a hardcopy of what I’m reading. But it worked out OK because I just ended up printing out pages as I needed them. And I guess I saved a few trees in the process too.
So anyway, I hope you found this information useful. If you want, you can check out the program for yourself to see if it’s the answer for you.
