Have a great IP day and feeling thinner is "PRICELESS"!!!
My last few weeks have been nothing to write home about but this week made up for it. Stick with it and it will happen.

Happy to hear you are back in the "vibe" again. You may have felt down about your loss, I can understand that, but I'm looking at your weight loss numbers and they are great. I think sometimes we need to step back and look at how far we have come rather than just week by week.

I hear you. It was this site and the posting of all the amazing people going through the same journey I am on that saved me on more than an occasion, especially for this last weekend where it was Thanksgiving and where I had a birthday, it was for the reason that I promised (and wrote it in here) that I would not cheat that I did not, it was because I thought of how everyone else is doing it so I could.

So yes... it makes a difference being in here, I am blessed having known about this site and everyone that posts in here.

I couldn't go to my weigh in last week, but will go on Sunday. I am one who jumps on the scale every day. This morning I had a nice drop in my weight, but will wait until I see the official number to brag.

Good morning all! I hope everyone is having a great OP week so far! I just wanted to thank all of you for posting everyday, creating interesting threads, and giving me the motivation I need to keep on keepin' on!

I had a good day yesterday - did a two mile walk and got all my water in. Here's to another good day today!

DON'T DO IT!!! Check out people's stats, we all have low losses. I had a .2 one week! Keep your eye on the prize! I'm glad you didn't give in to old habits by feeling down and feeding that emotion with food.

YOU CAN DO IT! I have faith in you!

Does that make sense to anyone?

Hope everyone has a great day!
I know exactly how you feel, I may weigh 300lbs but to me I feel like I weigh 200lbs....its all about your attitude and the way you feel about yourself. It is a great feeling. When I tell people I weigh now 300lbs and have lost 88 they look at me like I am crazy and tell me there is NO WAY I weigh that and I am like where is a scale so I can prove it to you....lol..I am not one of the frumpy big girls no matter was size I was. My hair and makeup was and is always done, my nails are always done and I dress to impress most of the time cuz you never know who you will meet when you are out. Don't get me wrong I do go bumming every now and then without makeup but I am always smiling, hair is done and ready to have a great day!!....STAY POSITIVE.....a positive vibe goes a LOOOONNNNNGGGGGG way!

I didn't quite meet my "one decade per 4 weeks" deadline (I'm 1/2 a pound from the next decade) and I didn't lose 10 pounds this last month like I'm used to but this week I lost 4 pounds! So I am now down 44.4 in 16 weeks! That leaves me with 15.4 to lose before I move to phase 2, which I need to do on Nov 24th. That is 6 weeks from today! Come on body, let's do this!

Yep, it's normal. up the salt. after a while it isn't as frequent. For a couple days I add an extra potassium pill and that helps. On weekends when I don't eat breakfast till after 10, I get dizzy if I stand up too quick.

I am not quite sure why I reached 205 then went up to 207 yesterday even though I was 100% OP, but all I know is that today (my official weigh-in, even though I weigh myself everyday), I was 206 and I hope that in a couple of weeks I reach the most dreamed about onederland.

Hope all of you are doing well.
Don't dwell on the past, there's nothing you can do about the choices that were made. But you can do something about the choices you are going to make, look forward to the skinny future!

Two people yesterday said that they couldn't believe that I was in my 50's before and now I could pass for 30's ( new best friends, jk). I can't get my pic to post, I have tried several things. I never had trouble before, sigh, WINDOWS...

Off to sew all day up on one of the beautiful Finger Lakes, won't be back until late tonight, but will check in with my peeps.

PS I am doing great with alternatives and so much less stress about the $$$
Yay, way to go Bella. I WI at 169.1 last night, was hoping for 168 but I'll take the 169..lol. Good luck.

Thanks for gracious supportive comments yesterday. My WI was a 2.4 down. However, my coach and the dr recommended that I go 4 below goal before going to Phase 3..so here I go!
Ready for the day on IP.
Good luck!

Yes it sure does. Sometimes it just takes people longer to give comments as they may notice you're losing weight but not 100% sure and don't want to offend you in case you're not trying and don't want to make you feel like you need to lose weight. (Confusing but I know what I mean..lol)

Wuv - love the new picture and hair cut. BEAUTIFUL!!!
