Don't go out of your weigh to please anyone but yourself. ~Author Unknown

I saw this and it reminded me, I don't have to eat something because it is the "polite" thing to do when another person offers it.

May we all have strength to stay on plan this week and get past our temptations!

My diet has gone well so far, as I have lost 28 pounds, with only 16 more to go. But this month has been hard.

I cheated today, and I still feel queasy from eating dumplings. But I also know that I will be cheating again next sunday, on my birthday, when my friends take me out for my birthday. I decided to make the choice to change over to phase 2, and start to work out a bit more. Being an apple shape, even though I have lost a lot of weight, it isn't apparent in the one place I would like it to be: my stomach.

Anyway, I was looking for some guidance or enlightenment on this topic

Carla, thanks for your post about being polite--how timely!

My husband and I have been invited to someone's house for dinner next weekend, the first time since we've been on plan. They asked if we had any particular food issues and we told them we are only eating protein and veggies and not eating carbs or sugar. They said, "no problem" but I know that most people will still thing bbq ribs or chicken marsala or all kinds of other things fall into the "OK" category.

It kind of reminds me of the old Monty Python skit where no matter what you order, it comes with spam...("spam, eggs, sausage and spam")

I don't know these folks very well, and they are kind of important to my husband career-wise, so I'm really worried about appearing rude. I've been practicing a variety of "no thank yous" for 2 days!

16 weeks, 50 pounds. Six months ago, I'd never have believed I could get here. And it feels great!

Oh, and 35 inches.

Hi ladies,

So after being off IP for a week, after I have my glucose testing and bloodwork I start back on IP today! My endocrinologist want the weight off of me as PCOS makes it super hard to lose it and because we are hoping to start trying to conceive in Sept after our wedding I need to get the wieght off now.

She said as long as my insulin levels have come down and Im not Type 1 diabetic which she is almost positive Im not, I can continue on IP as she said i was very successful and my body loved the diet. So today Im back on IP and excited to get the last 45 pounds off.

Have a great day everyone.

OK ... NSV alert!
I decided to go through my last amount of "when I used to be small clothes - all size 8 and 10". I could get them all on!!! Even the items I wore at the end of high school, 23 years ago! I was shocked! I am a good 20 pounds heavier than back then. And, it is the same clothing! They were a tad snug but not bad. All zipped, no uni-boob looks, and could sit. The 10's were a pretty good fit and the 8's are almost right. SOOO..... boyfriend and I went shopping. When we were at Nordstrom's I tried on several items. I have always wanted some designer jeans and clothes and haven't been able to fit them. GUESS WHAT! The sizes I picked were TOO BIG!! YEAH! What I finally found was that I can were size 29 jeans/jean shorts and size 10 dresses! My bustline is too big for anything smaller right now. I was shocked. I was even told by another shopper that my legs looked skinny in the pair of jeans I had on! I didn't say it, just smiled with a thank you, but thought "OH, HONEY! If you had only see these thighs at a size 30 inches 5 months ago!" LOL
Feeling pretty good about how things are going!


As you should be Carla!! Congratulations to you...and to want2 run for moving from the 3s into the 2ssssssssssssssss.:congrat :
I can't wait to have your experience. 5 pounds until I get to the 170sss--But I feel like from 170 on down the real fun with clothes begins... I wore a size 8 for a long time once. Can't wait to get there again!

Novak-- congratulations to you!! 50 pounds. I am dreaming of this moment and I know it's coming. You must feel fantastic!!
lady5andy-- can't wait to try the mojito. Sounds yummy. I watched everyone drink cosmos at a party last night. Finally had some vodka but none of the party drinks. This mojito thing will come in handy all summer long!
SylvieG--I know what it feels like to wait and wait to get to the next lower number. It took me weeks to go from the 9s to the 8s. But some kind of miracle happened that I am already half way through the 8s and almost to the 7s in about a week. So-- keep it up! You will get there.
And are you kidding about the 0-1 size skirt???????? That should keep you strong-- Will you be wearing negative numbers soon????!!??

Love the new profile picture! It's good to know that your endocrinologist thinks this is a healthy diet. I used that as ammunition with my husband, who keeps saying it isn't.
