Good job Marian! Hang in there. I think your back on the slender shaping track once again!!!

Deelou-I know it must be so frustrating for you. You have even greater obstacles to overcome in dieting with your thyroid than most of us do. It sounds like you have tried so many things without success. However, don't give up yet, there has to be something that you haven't tried yet. I know there has to be something out there to help you. " I have one suggestion, but please don't be insulted by the idea. It was something I tried some years ago and it helped me to lose approx 40 pounds in 4 months. I had tried everything even hypnosis, and nothing was working. I was so depressed. I finally decided to do it and guess what, I saw weekly results. I know that what may work for one person may not always work for another. However, if you haven't tried it, than think about trying it. So by now you are asking- well what is it? I started daily prayers to God before my meals and early in the morning. Maybe it kept me more focused on how often I was eating and what I was eating. However, I choose to believe otherwise. Just as I choose to use this process now to pray for you daily in an effort to help you reach your diet goal. I hope you will consider it too. It always helps to have more than one person praying for the same thing. You have nothing to lose by trying it other than maybe some pounds. Give it a shot for a couple of weeks. Seriously. Tell me if you don't see any results. I will be praying for you daily, and I believe you will see results if you try it. It may just the boost you are looking for in addition to your current diet efforts. So are you willing to give it a try?

Great! I'm so happy Deelou that you pray daily. Okay, so now I know we have something more in common. Now more specifically, do you pray right before every meal and and ask that the food you eat is used only to nourish you body, and that you only eat what your body needs. Do you ask for the will power to turn away those foods that are not needed? Do you pray that to have those extra unwanted pounds disappear from your body and to be used to energize you through the day? I think you get the idea. Try praying like this before every meal in addition to your normal prayers. I am going to do it for you, but you have to try too. Okay?

Renee-thanks for your feedback!!! Would you like to join this prayer effort too for Deelou? We can all support/pray for each other right before our meals.

Yes, Corinna, I will certainly add Deelou to my prayer list. Prayer is powerful!

Doing good this week. Resisted a lot of dessert temptations yesterday and made healthy choices at a lunch meeting. I'm taking it 1 day at a time.....

Deelou - Great! Prayers are going out in full force now... Let's keep on it.

Good job Renee. Keep making each day count. We can and will do this.

I have been avoiding temptations too. Now just need to cut down on my portion sizes to make it count.

Breakfast: Hummus and spinach on seeded bread.
Lunch: Carrots, Brussel Sprouts, Scalloped Potatoes.
Snack: Nectarine
Supper: Black beans with squash.

Morning jog.
Evening walk.

It's evening and I'm still hungry.
I must remember stay thin to win.
What touches my lips may go on my hips.
My belly is full of jelly, that is jelly flab which is really bad.

I can do this....I can do this... I will.

I found this online...not a mistake, www.settingcaptivesfree.com and joined for a 60 day trial....it is free and the very worse that could happen is that I stay the same weight but get closer to God!!!

Deelou-That sounds interesting. I will have to take a good look at the site. Thanks for sharing it with us. I've been keeping my promise to you. I'm been feeling positive about it too.

Renee-sounds like your doing a good job this week. I expect you will see some more positive results this weekend too. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Darius-let's see if your slight changes in diet made any impact to your weight loss this week. I am feeling hopeful for you too.

Let's keep the momentum going folks! We can do this. We will.

Hello everyone it is Friday weigh-in day.
Corinna I don't think I have my diet fine tuned yet but I am still losing so that is one good thing. I hope to have my diet/exercise well worked out by the time I hit maintenance, but my needs will be changing also as my weight changes so it is like hitting a moving target. But my situation really isn't so complicated; eat less + exercise more = lose weight.
Thank you Corinna, Renee, teati, and Liz for the words of support.
