Woohoo!! Congratulations on all your accomplishments, Ruth Ann! You've given yourself the gift of life and health back, and it's because of your dedication to staying 100% OP that you accomplished that.

You are such an inspiration to so many - but what I love the most is the image of losing 2 FEET from around your waist. That is something you should be proud of for the rest of your life.

I hope when I hit 9 months that I can put up similar numbers!

Schenectady: I would love to see a picture of you in that evan picone outfit! It is so exciting to wear cute outfits and feel confident when going out. I used to dread going anywhere for social or work events. I would look for clothing to cover my arms and my fat rolls. I could never seem to relax and enjoy myself, as I was so unhappy about the way I looked and felt.

It is so nice to be able to go to my closet and pull out any outfit now and feel that I look good. I enjoy going out with my DH and with friends. I actually look forward to social outings now!

Ruth Ann: You are so close to that 100lb off goal! You are always so upbeat and encouraging. I look forward to reading your thoughtful, cheerful posts. Even though I don't post a lot I am always on here, reading, reading, reading!

Rosie: congrats to you on that milestone! It is such an empowering feeling when we reach each milestone. I have literally jumped up & down clapping after getting off the scale when I reached a new 10lb increment in weight loss. I have also done many happy dances when shrinking to a lower size. WTG!

I'm thinking of making chicken salsa verde over cauli rice for dinner tonight. Amberjules recipe is so good! I made it once in September and have been meaning to make it again. I highly recommend it if you haven't tried it yet. DH thinks it's yummy too! I'm so lucky that he eats everything I make and never complains. It is nice to make things that actually taste good to him too. It would be so hard doing this on my own!

Thank you guys! It is pretty amazing to me how far I've come. Couldn't have done it without all your support - all the great motivation, ideas and comradeship I have found here has been invaluable. And I think my coach is as excited as I am!

Ruth Ann:
Congrats!!!
So happy for you!!!
I decided not to weigh this week, after all the cold/sickness/over-focus on worrying about the scale again. Hoping to join you next week

Chicken broth
I roast my chicken, toss the skin, remove the meat & use the bones for the broth-making. The meat is used in whatever recipe I'm making (examples: chicken salad, chicken stir-fry, or just roasted chicken). I tend to save some veggie scraps to throw in with the bones & cook until the bones start falling apart (bone broth is SOOOO good for us!)

I gotta do this bone broth. I have seen you mention it many times before and never have tried it. Maybe I'll get some whole chickens this weekend and try it.

DH decided to have a Super Bowl party so I am beginning the process of deciding on a menu. Yikes. I want it to be healthy but yummy as well. Maybe some chili with some paleo buns, veggie and fruit trays. This will be a bit of a challenge. I am a bit bummed out that my beloved Patriots are out. Not sure who I'm going to root for.

I started on working to compile menus/recipes from several Super Bowl threads I've seen in the past. I'll try to get that posted tonite.

Thanks Lisa & Carol - it is pretty exciting!

Lisa - I totally understand staying off the scale until you are well. I am rooting for you!!!!

Carol - I try not to think about how close I am to goal because then I'll start worrying about what happens next!

Dak - you should root for the Seahawks! I think it's going to be a really good game but of course I'm prejudiced and thinking the Seahawks will win!

Lisa: Looking forward to the Superbowl suggestions.

Oh YAY!!! I was hoping someone would post some Super Bowl ideas!! Obviously we are going to be watching it (GO SEAHAWKS!!), but not sure if we'll be home or going to a party. If we do go somewhere, I'd like to be able to take something that is IP friendly. If we just stay home, I'd like to have some fun things here that I can eat while my family is gorging on other things. My kids are wanting me to make that huge sandwich stadium idea that's been posted on facebook...not sure that's going to happen. I want to feel like I'm having some fun treats without going off plan. Chili cheese dip is my downfall. Chips, dips, etc.

Wow wow wow! You are so impressive! Congratulations. All that and the 'fun sized' sweet comment you received. You must be so happy. You're a rock star.
