Good morning August friends!! My scale said 158 this morning!!! I have not been in the 150s for years so I am very excited. My weigh in is tonight so I am very much hoping that my coach's scale is in the 150s, then it becomes official! The scale has definitely slowed down but it's still moving. The diet has become easier for me. I know what I like and I make sure to have it on hand. Have not cheated even once!!!!! Never said that on a diet before!! Love having so many in our group that started at the same time. It really helps me to see everyone's progress. Go get em!!

CONGRATS! That'll be a big milestone for me! Our stats are very similar, so I'm watching your progress!

Good morning! Had a tough day Sunday in the yard, lots of planting, mowing, weeding, digging up and moving stuff around, feel like I've been beaten with a baseball bat!! So tired, I went to bed at 9:30! I didn't eat lettuce yesterday, ran out and just had no opportunity to go to the store. I figure the lettuce is mainly for fiber to prevent "C" which hasn't been a problem so far. Does that make sense? I had 2 Quest bars this weekend as alternatives, they were sooooo good, and so much better than the IP - are we ABSOLUTELY sure they're OP? Treating them as restricted. Have a great day all, stick to it, you'll be glad you did!

Quest Bars fit the profile for a restricted item.
Your coach won't want you eating them b/c they are there to run a biz & sell products. Additionally, IP coaches have only been trained in supporting the IP program based on IP foods.

I just joined up today. I left my job a couple months ago to stay home with my little ones and have packed on 10lbs. I'm much more active now than I was at the office. Unfortunately, I'm so busy I don't really have time to sit and eat until afternoon nap time. Then I demolish everything in sight!!

I haven't gotten the results in the past two weeks that I desired. I know that last week because I was on liquids, I was at the low low end but still things seem a bit stuck.

Now, Lisa, before you worry about my attitude, I am actually Ok, practicing patience...BUT

I was so excited today when I happened to pass a full length mirror in our guest room (heavens know I would never have one in MY room before!)

The lady I saw in the mirror had a waist and NO bulging stomach. If I saw her walking down the street, I would not see any warped physical shape - even my back view was improving! So I know that is why I will just hang in there, strong. I am just waiting for another shopping in my closet day - maybe when I break 230.

My first NSV today that I can think of - I was on the phone, and had to tinkle. In my hurry to go I pulled my pants down without thinking. I looked down and realized that they had a button and zipper!! I was able to pull them right off!

So naturally, I pulled them back on the same way....because I could LOL

Schenectady, you always have the best attitude! Often I'll read your posts and it gives me that little boost I need. Thanks!!

I fired my coach today! I had an appointment with her and I waited 15 minutes and she never showed up. I have already made an appointment with another center.

Good Morning Everyone!!

We are really having some great results in our August group! Congrats everyone and keep it up! NO DROP OUTS!! For some reason, yesterday and today I feel 'stalled'. Absolutely nothing to base that on (I've been 100% OP and don't weigh myself at home) except for the feeling I have! I've not increased my activity as I said I would though, so that may be contributing. I pledge to get a walk in tonight after work! Somebody keep me honest and make sure if you don't see me mention it tonight (probably won't be til about 6 or 7 Central Time), that you call me out on it! I need the push from you guys! Have a great day, everyone!

Happy October everyone! It's my "Friday" I'm looking forward to my days off except having to go into work tomorrow for a meeting at 5pm. Seriously who calls a meeting at 5 pm !?! That means i'll have to fight rush hour traffic to get there and then home . Ergh!

Anyway make the best of the day!
