Happy September everyone! It's hard to believe that the summer is coming to an end. I am excited about some cooler weather in the coming weeks (I hope ) and the chance to get outside more and do activities without the heat taking it's toll.

I plan on really focusing and doing the best I can this month. I am excited! Let's have a great month together and help one another along this journey.

Hello all-Yay a new month! I am heading out of town for a family get together over labor day....my dad is already talking about burgers and ribs.....I plan on making as good of choices as possible, but my goal was to get to this weekend and be able to let loose a little. So, I will watch the carbs and the portions. I also bought some protien bars for the time in the car and those really difficult situations!

Whoops-I posted that before I wanted to. I plan on getting back to strict OP after the weekend so I can lose the last 10-12 lbs. (well, it may be about 15 by the time i get back ) So, everyone have a great Labor Day and I look forward to the support to help me on the last leg of the journey!

Sept. is definitely going to be the hardest month for me since I got started - this weekend, I'll be in San Francisco w/my sister for 4 days, and then next weekend, I'll be in Mexico at an all-inclusive w/my best friend for a much needed girl's weekend. We'll be scuba diving quite a bit, so I'm hoping to stay OP as much as I can and actually get in some good, solid water sports/exercise while there. I've got myself prepared to stay OP - it's as much a mental game as anything else! I'm down almost 30 lbs since I started, and at least now I won't be embarrassed in my swimsuit!! Have a great month, everyone!

I'm excited to see what September brings. I'm on day 18 and have lost 9.5 lbs and 12.5 inches so far so if I can keep that pace through September I should be more than halfway to my goal by October which is the plan. That would get me to goal by the time I meet my new grandson in November!
Hope everyone else has a great month and this heat goes away soon!!

Sigh. I am back. Wish I could say that I've had a good couple of weeks...but I have NOT been OP and I don't know what happened. Was doing SO good. I haven't been writing anything down, drinking my water, taking my supplements...nothing. I guess the good news is that I am still the same weight as I was a few weeks ago...but how do I go back into the center with no food charts, no nothing...I guess I'm nervous about that. I'm going to have to pay the $99 fee to continue after next month - my contract will be up then.

AngelaB, welcome back! You're the same weight as you were, so no harm, no foul. You're back now and over halfway to your goal!

Don't worry too much, just go back into the center, spill the beans and recommit to losing the rest of the weight. I myself had a mini freakout at around 45 lbs, so maybe it's like the 'mid-diet crisis'. I'm sure the center will understand. The important thing is to think about why you went rogue so you can prevent it again.

Welcome back!

No worries - I went back after a 21 day absence for a road trip. I didn't track or stick to program religiously. I was relieved not to have gained anything. The center folks should be glad to see you, especially if you are going to reup your contract next month!

I have a problem. I'm going away to Denver for the weekend for a much needed break. I can resist most of the food in the big city,( the Cheesecake Factory, Crispy Creams, etc.) There is one thing that I feel I have to have. Pink Berry frozen yogurt. It's crazy that things we've always been told are good for us are now off limit. The other day I beat myself up for caving and eating a 32 calorie bag of fresh apple slices. After all, I had already had a half of a small orange for breakfast. I can't wrap my mind around the fact that eating an extra piece of fruit is cheating. I'm pretty sure i'm going to have a small frozen yogurt. I just hope it doesn't mess me up too bad. It took me a week to not feel dizzy and weak after I first started the plan. BTW, i'm really digging the chocolate pudding and creamy chicken soup.

If you're on metaslim, it's green menu under 200 - that would be 4oz meat, 8oz veg/4oz, max 4 HNS/day.

Went to weigh in this morning and down 1 more pound. Hopefully next week I can lose one more and make it to the 30 pound loss.... I am going to try my hardest to reach that goal by next weigh-in.
I hope you all have a great holiday weekend!

Well, I went back to the center today, and I am so glad I did. I gained 1 lb, and as much as I was off plan, I was okay with that! They did measurements, and since my last measurements exactly a month ago, I was down 6 lbs and had lost 7 inches! So I am back on plan and excited to keep on losing!!!

Thanks for all the kind words - with the support here, I know we can ALL DO IT!!!
