Good morning friends! I just wanted to thank everyone who answered my numbers question yesterday. Your wonderful thoughts and advice really put things in perspective for me. Instead of feeling uncomfortable when asked, I am going to smile and say I have lost more than I ever dreamed possible.

I dont tell everyone willbe, I am to ashamed for them to calculate how much I must have weighed and how I let myself get like that. So I try to be positive and say oh, a little bit, then they ask me what did I do, I say I joined a gym and started to eat more healthy, thats about it.

They always say, way to go, I need to do that too, then they feel guilty and start thinking that they should change things too in their life, so then I am off the topic of interest lol.

Can't believe it is Friday already!!! Colder then cold here -32 C, that is without the windchill!

Yay to all the NSV and weight losses this week. Everyone is doing a great job of keeping on track or getting back on track. Even though i don't post much, I am reading everyday. Lots of good advise and encouragement from everyone. Thank you.

First week WI on phase 2 was a loss of 3 pounds. I have lowered my goal weight in anticipation of the gain back of 3-5 lbs when I move into the other phases. On to week 2!!!

Have a great day everyone.

So happy it's Friday!!! Missed WI this morning going to try and go tomorrow morning....I don't think I lost and pounds but I notice the inches i have lost since most of my work clothes are not fitting. So the question is do I buy new clothes or not?

I hope everyone had a great day and I look forward to reading all of the NSVs and SVs........

Happy Friday!! Have a great weekend

Morning, ya'll! Had a couple pieces of thin-cut fried bass last night, and while I wish I didn't, I'm not going to stress about it. I know it didn't throw me out of ketosis, but it made me feel so sick from the grease.

So, today I'm going with the vanilla pudding/coffee drink that I adore, tomato soup that I spice up to suit my cajun palate, asparagus, kale chips, a blueberry-pom drink, and I'm thinking a small, delicious steak for dinner with grilled peppers, green onions, zucchini, and tomatoes. Mmm.

OMG YES! And my hormones...well, I can go from one extreme to the next. I swear, it's as bad as being pregnant. And PMS. Awful. And I absolutely know I'm not pregnant!

I'm learning this lesson now.
Well said. I just finished learning it. I hope it got through my thick skull, though.

Great advice! I don't mind telling people how much I've lost, but won't share what I still have to go. I really like the advice to say "Yeah. Lookin' good, right?" LMAO!

When you need new clothes, buy new clothes. I feel so much better about myself when I'm not wearing something too big! Plus, it keeps me on track.

Default New purple water bottle!

Funny how little things can make such a big difference. I found a purple insulated mug that holds 34 oz. at the hardware store, it is even shaped right to fit into the cup holder of my prius. I'm planning on my right arm becoming buff from lifting it throughout the day. One big bulging muscle!

Default To buy or not to buy

I am all for getting clothes that fit. Clothes that are too big are sloppy and you need to feel great! I am getting my clothes at the consignment store. I know this size will only be temporary so after I grow out of them I either give them to someone else, or give them to the goodwill.
I'm not buying new until I get to 150 then I'm heading to Dallas and going on a shopping spree.
I'm going to start a fund. Each pound lost must be worth something. HOW MUCH?

Thank you!! I ordered 6 more boxes of IP stuff! I set a $ limit on products I would buy and I am there now, so I better stick to the protocol and "git r dun" (as Juiceman would say) because I am not spending any more money on IP products. I am going to try the caramel bar - yummy - can't wait!!

Good luck on your weigh in!!!
