Good for you! I have sooooo much energy, too. So much of my bad eating was trying to quivk fix fatigue. Now i know how much worse i was making it!I am originally from Ft. Wayne...my brother-in-law lives in Indy.
.....

Fun find: I put my raspberry jelly in freezer and found that, once it was slightly frozen, it's a lot like gelato...
very smooth and creamy. Yum! I also put sea salt on my chocolate pudding...sort of a version of salted caramel.

Yeah, I always thought eating would fix everything - didn't work very well. My body is much happier eating this way!

Hi Everyone
Hope you all had a good weekend. I struggled a bit as my DH and I went to a sports bar to watch the Kentucky Derby. For the most part I did pretty good, didn't drink any alcohol but did eat a few of my girlfriends "Naked" chicken wings, which means they have no sauce on them. They are deep fried however and I know that is a no no. Anyway I made a quick recovery and got back on track with my next meal!! This is a big NSV for me because in the past I would have used this as an excuse to go crazy eating all weekend and "restart" on Monday!!
Have a great rest of the week!!

I haven't posted in awhile, but I have been coming here and reading every single day. I've been a bit discouraged lately because I feel as if I am losing quite a bit slowly than a lot of others here. I KNOW...I shouldn't compare myself to others, but that's easier said than done when I check in here every day and can't help but notice! LOL

Today was WI#6. Was down 1.5. In the past 3 weeks, I have lost a total of 5.3 pounds.

Is there anyone out there who has lost a significant amount of weight, but didn't have big losses most weeks? Would love to hear encouragement on how to stay motivated when you don't experience the big losses and super fast results you want/hope for!

Well it was my first week on the program and I got on the scale this morning. I'm down 11 pounds.....ELEVEN...that's crazy and wonderful at the same time. And while I realize it won't be this way every week I'm celebrating having a week's worth of will-power. And this is definitely encouraging to stay on the program. :P

My NSV from this weekend-eating out Friday night and my husband ordered soft pretzel sticks with dipping sauce for an appetizer. I had none!

If my math is right, you've lost more than 3 lbs a week on average! That is awesome! You should be really proud of that accomplishment!

And yes, my body kind of got in a cycle where I'd have 2 or 3 (or 4) low loss weeks and then lose 4-6 pounds all at once. It all evens out. Seriously, remember that at any given point the scale is just part of a measure of overall progress - it's the downward trend you're looking for.

Have you been taking measurements? Any changes there? How do you feel? How do your clothes feel? These are really better measurements of progress than the scale sometimes.

Hang in there - you really are doing great. I know it's hard to be patient, but I figure it this way - I spent better than 25 years overweight, what's a few months to lose it?

So... I cheated this weekend. I had wine, pizza and potatoes. I gained 2 pounds (hopefully not all fat) and I felt terrible the next day. I'm chalking it up to a learning experience. 1. The food did not taste as good as I thought it would have. 2. The wine was lovely but I easily could have done without it - and the headache the next day. 3. The fun of the night wasn't worth a 2 pound gain and a slow down of weight loss for this week.
I'm back on board 100%. I'm not beating myself up too much though because the past 3 weeks have been really hard to stay 100% and this cheat has made me recommit myself to the diet...

My past two losses have been a little lower than I'd like, too. I try to remind myself that at least the numbers are going in the right direction! Hang in there, you're doing great!
