Even hubs is enjoying all of the creatively cooked meals that I have discovered thanks to these awesome posts and me feeling more confident in the kitchen!
What a great thing for your kids to see, and how wonderful that their habits are changing too. Positive all the way around!

One of the best things I have seen that is helping me beyond the scale and my periodic weigh-ins is something another person posted on a different blog. For each pound that comes off, she visualizes a pound of butter, or more striking - an equal amount of chicken fat. And every time she laments the veggies or the IP packets, she imagines the energy they produce coursing through her blood to burn more fat. That has helped me to be as disciplined as I have been so far. Good luck!

My motivation is the fact that I am so confident in other ways, but now don't want to be in photos or see myself in them. It made me realize I got myself here and it is up to me to get myself out. I still miss pizza, though!

Hey all, this is week two for my husband and I. We can't weigh ourselves since we decided to take a last minute trip to Hawaii. We are staying on plan though. We bought Rtd shakes and powder and brought our bars. We won't get home till Wednesday of next week so at that point we will have gone two weeks without weighing ourselves. I'm looking forward to next Wednesday. I admit it's hard to to be in paradise and not pick the fruit but we are doing it. I'm glad we are staying in a condo where we can make our own food. I hope all is well with everyone else. Aloha from the big island!

I myself start on Monday... I'm equal parts excited and nervous but so so ready to get healthy. So far I've read so many inspiring stories and comments I'm just glad I found support!

Add salads to lunch & dinner, that helps with hunger because it adds bulk.
Also, I had to learn the difference between true hunger and "wanting to eat". We're so conditioned to eating whenever we want.

We've been LIED TO! We've been lied to about eating lots of carbs and cutting fats. Fat doesn't make us fat, carbs do! We've been lied to about grazing all day. It makes us fat too.

So we have to relearn new behaviors, which are really the behaviors we should have had all along. And we have to relearn how to look at food.

Congrats on your WI. Know those bioimpedence scales are highly inaccurate at measuring fat, lean mass, etc. For example, everything except fat is lean mass (bone, connective tissue, internal organs, blood, muscle, skin, etc). So the scale showed its first inaccuracy. It is IMPOSSIBLE to lose fat without water. And since water is part of lean mass...the scale is inaccurate. CWIM?

This is in NO WAY to diminish carrying around 7 fewer lbs. That is FANTASIC!
