Woo hoo! That is so awesome!

I am at 31 (arrrgh) and am looking forward to that day myself. I created a spreadsheet that has all my measurements, weight, etc for each weigh in, and it calculates BMI for me....I will be watching that like a hawk!

Thank you so much. Definitely not an easy time in our family, but we are hanging in there.

I am down a total of 30 lbs since I started. I can wear those jeans I bought with the tags still on, pretty much awesome. I am staying on program, my daughter got stalled for awhile, i was not around to give her the social support she needs to get something like this done. It has been a problem because I spend 5 days a week away from home and the clinic is never open on weekends, one week I had to buy product from another clinic from my weekday place. But we both went in today and she is now ready to go again, she only gained a pound, over the last month. She was pleased with that.

Wuv- you look fabulous!

Good job everyone with all your losses, and don't sweat the cheating too much if you did slip, just get back on that horse and go for another ride!

Cheers
I was just thinking about you and your daughter the other day and wondering how you both were doing on IP. Happy to hear your daughter is movtivated again. It's always a lot easier when you can do this diet with someone else. My daughter has also stalled for a few weeks here and there, but is hanging in with only 4 pounds left to goal. Glad you're back!

As part of my "Motivate Myself" campaign (which means making me care more about making myself presentable and staying on plan, lol), I did the following this week:

- Colored my hair (definitely a mood lifter!)
- Painted my toenails
- Made some loooong overdue doctor appts
- Ordered myself a Fitbit to help keep track of my calorie expenditures and sleep habits (this is similar to the Body Bugg they use on the Biggest Loser...check it out on Amazon.com)

The Fitbit appealed to me because I am a total data nerd, and seeing numbers helps me hold myself accountable and stay motivated. It *may* actually get me to use that treadmill/clothes hanger/dust collector I have had and not used for 2 years!!
Fitbit is fun. I learned about it on this site. You will love it. I got one for DH when he dropped below 300 lbs. I was so proud of him. He loves it and wears it all the time. It's small and discreet. He also uses it to monitor sleep. He uses a site called Daily Burn Tracker to track his intake. Both Fitbit and DBT provide him with all kinds of data.

A few weeks ago I got some new skincare. I was getting ready to try something new last year but originally thought I would wait till after the diet. It made all the difference. My face was breaking out or something from the soy?? or detox? or something. Looked rough. Now it looks fresher. It really helped.
