Hi ladies,

I come in here often and get recipes and look around but I don't talk much. Well I just wanted to tell all of you thank you. Today is my first successful week of Phase I and I feel awesome. All of my cravings are gone and I am slowly learning to listen to my body and enjoy my new lifestyle.

I would have not made it on eggs alone. Having all of these recipes really helped. I get easily frustrated and would have stopped but I made it and just one more week to go. I hale absolutely no sugar craving even carbs are like ewwwwww!!! We had a Christmas party the other day and I brought my lunch and snacks as usual. I wondered how I would fair but I was able to sit in that room with all those "goodies" and not have one desire to partake in any of it.... Yeah me!

I have even gotten my boyfriend to eat what I eat and he is loving eating "healthier". I still have to cook him "regular" food but he gets excited about what we are having for dinner now a days.

I have managed to avoid the scale also.....that is a huge problem for me. I do my official 2wk weigh in on the 19 ( Japan time) and I am so excited. I feel good, and I look good.

Thank all of you ladies for just being here and constantly sharing your thoughts it has really helped me get through that first week...

1 down and 1 to go....let's get it Phase 1....

Congrats! I like you are more of a lurker. However, your positive energy was refreshing this morning. If you keep your chin up as you have you'll be just fine!

Best Wishes..:)

Welcome Mommy and congrats on completing a clean first week of phase one! The worse part is almost behind you. Hang in there and come back often. I could never do what I'm doing without all the help that I get from these ladies either.
