Hi, there! I'm starting today, too, but this is my first time. I have LOTS to learn. Good luck to you!

We shall call this the Buddy Thread then! There is so much good support on here but it is nice to have people in the same spot as yourself I find. Whoop whoop.
I have a feeling all of us here can keep each other on track. I may need a kick in the butt or two so please don't be afraid to do it!!!!!

Totally get it. I had a large gap from when i stopped on round 1 and started round 2. It was almost like I had to mentally prepare for what I was doing but at the same time get relieved that a solution is headed my way!

The thing is... I felt really good while on track. I love veggies and really was never hungry. There was so many good recipes to find on this site and the food I was eating was good. But then summer came and I just drifted off. No excuses... It was a decision that I made. Bread and carbs, as yummy as they are, have never been my friend. And all the booze I drank was prolly a real insult to my liver. I live in a small community where almost of all our friends like to party. That being said they are all overweight too. Everything in moderation is so the key. I lost my key!!!!
I have struggled with my weight all of my life. My Mom is a poster girl for yo yo dieting and I learned from the best. Time to change. A permanent change. And all those things that I love need to become a treat and not part of my daily diet. I am ready to make that change for good.
I have learned that I feel so much better when I can breathe in my jeans!
But that being said... Anybody who says nothing tastes better than being skinny has NOT tasted my BFF's husbands pesto!!!! Lol
Here we go.....

I have bought some Proti Diet drinks but my supplier disappeared! Lol I have bought some Walden Farms dressings and I really only liked the Thousand Island for my Big Mac in a bowl. For my protein drinks I have bought high quality protein isolate from a local supplier and one from Walmart. I use Pure Protein and Detour bars...
You have to really watch and compare what you are using as alternatives. I compare them to the nutritional charts of ideal protein products.
I weigh myself and measure myself and can be totally accountable to myself for that.
