If you are talking about the woman in the blue outfit who kept a candy stash in her cupboards, she had not changed too dramatically. The same program (from last week and #2 in the series, I think) also featured a man who went from 400 to 500 pounds to maybe 220. My DishNetwork broadcast had two episodes back-to-back. The new one for this week featured a very svelte blond woman who had lost a great deal of weight and kept it off for four years. She was skeptical about the finger tapping at first and said it really works. It is supposed to adjust the thinking in your mind.
Yesterday after church someone sent me home with a full plate of cookies and brownies. It would not be uncommon for me to devour half of a dozen cookies or more during the afternoon. I tried the thumb and finger press technique from the new show for this week broadcast at 9 PM Eastern or 7 PM Mountain. I decided to have one cookie and the rest are now in the freezer where they will remain until my wife and I eat them only one or two at a time after regular meals over the next few weeks.
Anyway, I am glad your comments so far are largely positive.
