We get it. Sometimes we wake up and realize that things are absolutely out of control. One day you’re only 5 pounds up, but then you blink your eyes and your pants won’t slip over your hips, forget zipping that zipper.

We see it often in our support groups from people who know they haven’t ruined their pouch or sleeve with massive portions so they don’t need a 48 Hour Pouch Reset to check their surgical tool. But they are honest with themselves and recognize that the food on their plate was not what they should be eating.

We know from first hand experience that getting started after Regain is overwhelming. Regain of any amount is a crushing blow. Why? Because for a year or so the weight melted off so rapidly you didn’t realize it wasn’t you, it was the surgery calling the shots. This is referred to as the “Honeymoon” period. So it totally adds up that after becoming a Social Media Selfie Queen and buying all those cute clothes in the not plus sized stores it’s almost scary how sad it makes you feel.

So let’s start with just 8 pounds. Think of how revitalized you’d feel if you could drop 8 pounds fast. Those 8 pounds will restore your faith in yourself. Once you realize that you CAN buckle down and lose the weight, you will push for more. You will actually use that Inspire Diet Box you bought last month. You will actually stop giving into the cravings for “crunch". Or worry about your “need to chew” and just follow the Inspire Diet plan long enough to lose all of your Regain because you know you can.

So buckle up…here’s how to drop 8 pounds FAST.

Once you have read that here is an important next step:

If you have more than 8 pounds to lose, begin following the Inspire Diet to keep the momentum going. Remember it’s critical you don’t go crazy with food. Keep it simple. Keep your meals basic. Protein + 1 vegetable is a complete meal. You do not need a side of cottage cheese with that. You do not need to top everything with cheese. You do not need to blend in a half a banana in your shake. You don’t need to load up on sugar free desserts either. Work hard and the weight will come off. THEN keep working smart and the weight will stay off.

Enough is enough. You've got a Regain, no matter if it's "only" 10 pounds or if it's way more. You can a choice to make right now. You can either be heavier when next month arrives OR you can be 8 pounds lighter. It's up to you. Your choice. You can do this. We are here to help!
