Good morning all!
Congrats to so many of you on the baggy clothes NSVs. Who knew we could get excited about not having anything to wear ... for a GOOD reason! Awesome.

100% OP and loving it

Sorry to hear about your grandma. I know growing up in a southern family food has always been comfort. It's hard for ppl to understand that you've changed your lifestyle. My SIL kept telling me this weekend oh one little bite won't hurt! But for me that one little bite is the gateway to a full on binge. I overheard her tell my sweetie oh Jamie's getting skinny again don't you think at might hurt ya'lls relationship? WTF?! Like she's trying to plant in his head that I'll do something crazy like break up with him cuz I've lost weight. To **** with that noise. I've put 8 long years in this relationship!

I know families are crazy right!!! I'm flying down to Florida and won't be able to refrigerate any food for 5 or 6 hours - and who knows if I'd be able to get it through security. So I'll just have to make due with taking bars and IP drink packets. I'm stopping at the grocery store for my veggies and protein before I even show up at their house! I'm giving myself no excuses and giving them no opportunity to derail me!

And I'm not sure about email notifications? I wish there was, and if someone knows how, please let me know, too. I practically live on these boards though, so I just wait for the threads I have commented in to become bolded so I know that someone new has posted in it.

And you are right, this is a great group!! And congrats on your great success so far!!

Thank you I have been wondering the same thing

Good morning, well tomorrow is my birthday (turning 30) I was hoping of reaching my goal of 160 by then but I have been stuck at 165 for a week. Any advice on losing the last five pounds??

Yesterday's WI was -1.8, I am very happy with that number. I am however, really struggling with the mirror and how I feel about myself. I do not think I look much different than I did before I started and while I know in my head that it's likely not possible that I look the same, I don't see it with my eyes. I still see all the places I want to shrink and I'm not nearly as small as I thought I would look at this point. Never mind that I've gone from a 16 to 8's and 10's and an XL top and dresses to mediums and even some smalls. I don't understand what's wrong that I can't see it. So I'm frustrated with myself and my body and considering lowering my goal. But then at the same time, I don't know that I see myself accurately and don't know that toning won't make the difference I want to see.
So damn complicated.

I knew this would be coming: needing long pants & even a winter coat
So, I started shopping thrift shops last month & ONLY looking for Fall/Winter clothes. I've gotten a bunch of very nice things/nice labels. My entire closet is either summer clothes that were given to me or from my excursion into "poppin tags". Since I started early enough, the first day I needed long pants, I was set! I don't have many b/c I'm also buying the next size smaller. I'm still on the hunt for a winter coat for inclement weather but I got a nice black peacoat-style with a Talbot's label for $30 already. I don't think this size is the size I'm going to end up so I don't want to spend $$$ either!

Isn't it sad that the people who should be supporting us the MOST are sometimes our biggest saboteurs? Sometimes I think we should tell them JUST THAT: You are my family. You should be my biggest supporters, not my biggest saboteurs!

Anyway, great planning! Allowing NOTHING (and nobody!) to derail you is the ONLY WAY TO ROLL on IP!

So I have been on IP for four months and never tried the bars, not wanting to risk the restrictive. Last night I decided to get some of the peanut butter bars and just ate one, so delicious I think I got my peanut butter fix finally.

I just started IP today. I’m doing it on my own since the cost is a bit much and the hubby and I just bought a house, he just needed a new car, etc. After watching two of my coworkers (one who lost 40 pounds in 3 months) lose weight I really want to lose some weight on my own.
After reading on the posts of doing IP on your own, I jumped in today. So far I’m okay. A little bit of a headache, but I’m not too hungry. I can’t wait to get home and eat dinner though. If I could drop 30 pounds by Christmas I’d be THRILLED!!

I bought several thin cardigan type sweaters to wear over my summer shirts because I wasn't sure what size I would end up being this winter. Hoping that will hold me over for a bit. Need to go pop some tags though as I only have two pair of pants in my size and all my other pants are just too big. Can't afford much until I am in maintenance though so thrift store it is.

Sorry about your grandma, will send you good vibes to stand up to your family. Just ignore them and concentrate all your energy on grandma!

Happy birthday!! My weight has slowed as I got within 5lbs of goal- this was my slowest week yet. Some have replied to mix up the routine a bit, so I think I will try that too. Have some crepe mix I need to use up anyway, so restricted for breakfast I shall try.

So damn complicated.
I hear you here, for me it took taking a picture in the same shirt and comparing to really SEE what I have lost. (I posted it in the before and after thread last week.) At first I could see the loss in the mirror, but now that I have been smaller for a little while I see it less and start to focus on those little spots that still need a lot of work. So I looked at the picture and saw how much less of the door frame I took up and that helped me to really see it too.

If you have one of those old items to try on to see how you swim in it now would help? It really is complicated the way our minds work.
Hugs, Crystal

Hey Lisa (lisa32989) - All of the challenges (25 by 4th of July) (25 by Fall) were awesome - and I loved participating in them. They brought a certain level of discipline/accountability to me personally - Thank you for administering/managing them!

Any chance you'll be doing a Thanksgiving or Christmas one? Or have you already posted and I missed?

Thanks!

Once flatbread is laid out in the pan add
