Oh this is perfect for me! I have a conference starting July 5th that I would love to be a little lighter for! I just lose so slowly, though. I'd love to be 155, but honestly would be delighted to be out of the 160's

Starting weight 164.4
Goal Weight 155

Welcome JRP2689!!!

Happy Wednesday!! Can't weigh today but ate on plan and will continue the same for today!! Boy is broccoli good!!!...just kidding - forced myself to eat it at dinner last night - I usually like it but it was overcooked!! When I get home - I think I'll make a crustless broccoli/cheddar quiche over the weekend!!

Wannaskipandlaugh The faux potato salad stayed home but the low carb dip went to the party!! I felt really good about the outfit I wore to work yesterday - the second outfit from about 6 weeks ago that I finally had the confidence to wear!!

Lulu... Cool about the outfit...and a good thing you wore it as it will become too big soon enough and then you couldn't Have people been saying anything to you about your newer look and body? Me... no... But that is ok... I know I am slimmer and my clothes are getting really big on me

Welcome lash0rty!!!

Happy Friday!! Back home and finally got to weigh - looking at 194 which is better than where I started in January - some weeks I struggle more with portion control than others and this was one of those weeks.

Wannaskipandlaugh Remember you are in a better place than where you started!!! Keep on going - this updownupdown thing will turn into a downdowndown thing!!!! I just know it - look at your numbers - You have come soooo far already!!!!!
