I have two for this week:

1) I did not have a single piece of candy this season. I didn't buy half off candy. And I even had a candy bowl on my desk and GIGANTIC bags in my office (candy for my meetings/travel). I didn't binge. I didn't eat it. Not to say I didn't want to but I resisted and I am proud!

2) Today, I found my favorite chips in CVS when I was picking up my UTI meds. They are newish and hard to find and I found them (I haven't seen them since I last had them in June in fact). I was tempted but I walked out of the store without the chips. And I feel good about it. Haven't stopped thinking about them, but I feel good I didn't eat any!

No candy for me either, though the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in the office tried really hard to tempt me! :devil: Yeah us! :cp:

Excellent job ladies! I can join in on that...

I've had a pound of Mackinac Island fudge (best.thing.ever.) in my freezer since Oct 22. Haven't touched it.

Well, as we all know, wine is a no-no on Phase 1, and I really thought I'd stuggle with that one, but I'm very proud to report that I've gone a whole week without touching a drop:D Hubby is a bit of a wine boff and often likes to tempt me with his new finds ... but I have not succumbed at all this week, and even he hasn't been tempted to open a bottle just for himself ... so it's obviously done us both some good!;)

I just resisted a chocolate on chocolate cake from THE BEST bakery in town tonight. It was my niece's 17th birthday and I didn't indulge in even a tiny sliver. Woot woot!!! :)

Candy and ice cream, haven't had any since starting SB 5 weeks ago. My DH has a sweet tooth and has orange slices, yogurt pretzels, mini kit kats, mini Dove bars, cookies in our pantry, and I have not had one thing all along. He even commented to me, how impressed he is.

So, they are there looking at me everytime I open the pantry door, and I don't even acknowledge them, just reach for the almonds.

I always tell myself, if I am going to go off plan, make it for something sinfully good. Because I know I have to do that once in awhile, but it will be my choice.

Sounds like everyone is doing good.

I don't know whether I should be embarassed or happy but my pants fell down in public today! I really need new jeans!

Also, my favorite nightshirt (I am a Pj pants and shirt wearing kinda girl normally) has gotten ginormous on me. Enough so that DW said to me this morning, "Are you trying to bring back that off the shoulder 80s look??" :lol3:

Hahaha! You should be happy... but you should also buy new pants ;)

I got heck from one of my program secretaries about my pants that didn't stay up. I celebrated on the inside a bit, but that night I went to Value Village and picked up some new-to-me interim pants :)

So tonight I had a couple of friends who needed to get out and have a drink. I went to the bar w/ them both and sipped on water the entire time instead of having a beer or mixed drink (I've got another day on Phase I). We went to Applebees and had dinner...I ordered a salad and had Unsweet Tea even though there were cheesesticks and buffalo wings there. Yay!!!

I wore my size 12 jeans out!! I haven't worn them in...two years? I was so nervous but everyone was complimenting me, even people I don't know that well! It was definitely an ego boost :)

I'm also a wine lover on Phase 1. Day 3 and so far, so good. Hoping to do 3 weeks of Phase 1 and then celebrate with a delicious glass of red.

After a bout with edema, I'm back into my new Size 14 pants that I shortened four weeks ago. Now they are too long which means I've lost some more butt and belly!

Do they still make platform shoes? I could use some.

Even though I'm stalled since vacation, people notice daily. One girl said omg it looks like you lost 20 pounds! I said thank you, but, no..lol. I guess cause I'm so short 10 pounds looks like 20. So, that's a victory for me!

One of my gym buddies walked up to me tonight and said "You look like you have lost a significant amount of weight!" I have never loved the word "significant" anymore than I do right now!

Great job everyone!

My BP used to be sky high even after losing 30+ pounds (pre-SBD). After 6 mos I was able to get off the meds, but my BP was always a little high (128/95.
Yesterday I let the nurse take my BP at the Sr.Center lunch-it was 113/77. That's the lowest I've ever seen it since I started losing.

I am noticing, my jeans are getting baggy and I don't like baggy jeans. (but I am loving it) Esp in the thighs and buns area, so much more comfortable.

Maybe new jeans for my birthday!

I'm on cloud nine, despite my little Thanksgiving hurdle! FIVE years ago, I asked for a sweater from Eddie Bauer for Christmas. I got it in a 2X because that was the largest size offered. It was too small, but I liked it so much I didn't want to return it. It has sat on a shelf in my closet for five long years. Yesterday while getting ready for church I decided to try it on again and it looked beautiful! I cut the tags off (finally!) and ran to show my husband. Love it!!!
