and I AM STILL HERE!!!!!! :carrot:

This is the FIRST TIME I have tried to loose weight and haven't wanted to give up within the first 5 days.

The scale has moved since I weighted myself Sunday Night, so that's some progress (and it's moved down not up).

Counting Calories seems to be working for me - MUCH more than I thought it would. Oddly enough it seems EASIER to me than anything else I have ever tried - WHO KNEW?!
That 9pm 'snack time' has been the hardest for me actually. I have managed to not snack at all after dinner, but I am drinking hot tea again at that time.

Oh and I am walking EVERY DAY.

I am thankful for this board..........man, am I thankful.

Here's to the weekend (which does scare me a bit) :smug:

Have a good one (and thanks for listening)

Summerblue, I know I lean towards hyperbole at times but I truly believe this board may have meant the difference between life and death for me. At 42 and 273 lbs, I might have not been in danger of imminent death but being unable to walk a city block without stopping to catch my breath, I sure as heck wasn't living!! I am sure the weight would have shortened my life, coupled with my family legacy of hypertension, heart disease and diabetes, the weight would have meant an early death and a really poor quality of life.

Welcome again and congrats for sticking it out!!:hug: At 67 days, I am still fairly new at this...nothing like people who have lost 25, 50, 75, 100...I've lost 17 lbs and find this is easier every day. It's 2nd nature, almost.

I'm so glad it's working for you! I too attribute much of my success to this awesome place and these awesome people!

I had a similar reaction to yours in regards to calorie counting. I've tried so many times with so many different methods and this is by far the one I've liked the best. Who knew indeed? LOL! It's amazing that the simplest method still works.

WOW - thanks everyone for your comments, they really do mean A LOT. I will be reading and re-reading this as much as necessary over this weekend.

Ya'll ROCK xo
