Great job, Patzi! You have done sooo well in Maintenance. A wonderful example to the rest of us!

I go to Disneyworld for a week in November, and I hope my WI after will reflect good choices also..I should say that my WI will be good...but I also know myself on vacation I think I will shoot for losing some before it!

My dinner's really are the same as on the Green menu...I think I have identified my downfall as being snacks. Working on it!

Tammy...
My menu is also same as Green.. I found my snacks need to have protein in them. I had mentioned before. if I have the baked oatmeal, I need to have a protein or a fat with it, whether it be some fat free Greek yogurt on top, fat free ricotta, or peanut butter.. If I don't combine the two I will gain. One snack that I can have at night that is filling is the yogurt that I freeze with some sugar free pudding or jello in it and sweetener, and if I am in the mood some nuts.. That takes the edge of the want of snack at night and
does fill me up. It is all a working progress, so I understand you saying you are working on it. To be honest with you, I found it difficult this trip. But it is worth it, as I don't want to look like I did before, that is for sure... Thanks for the kind words.

Last week's stomach virus really did a number on me. It took until Saturday to feel "normal" again. However, it was enough to screw me up...big time. I'm having trouble getting back in the swing of things. And I can tell in the way I feel too. I'm completely lethargic, although I'm getting 7-8 hours of sleep a night. I know it's what I'm putting in my system. I'm waking up with the best of intentions, and by the afternoon, I'm looking for something sugary to eat to "wake me up." My size 4 jeans still fit, but I don't even want to look at a scale right now. Oh, did I mention I was constipated for a week! I know I'll get back to being OP, but right now, I'm just having trouble with it.

Jen, I know the feeling. Whenever I feel crappy, lethargic, etc. I crave things like that. It's weird that we would want foods that will make us feel worse in the long run. If I were you I would drink lots of HNS maybe in sparkling water as a treat, and stay out of the kitchen as much as possible. Fresh air!

I looked at your picture on the MRC website yesterday. You look so great. One of the best looking -no, wait, THE best looking woman in their testimonials. Really.

Hello all...I've been lurking/struggling My weight is actually maintained...I stay in the same 2 pound range. But I feel like I"m relying too much on processed foods or "diet" foods (like the weight watchers bars) and I just feel like crap. Today my coworkers had a potluck for my last day there (although many of them were considerate of my healthy eating and brought things like fruit, angelfood cake, and sugar free chocolate coffee creamer). And now we'll be traveling for Memorial Day...and even when I get good traveling seems to do a number on the scale. And it's TTOM, so I'm just feeling blah/puffy. And my counselor had taken another job and was just at MRC sporadically so I haven't been able to touch base much...but I just found out she is back at MRC full time!

So during my trip I''m going to stay as OP as possible. Exercise. Then when I get back I'm going to cut out almost all processed foods...they are where I start to overeat (bread, melba, weight watchers bars) and spend June eating whole foods (in moderation, of course)...with lots of water and no diet soda. But I am feeling pretty just blah...

Go to www.emetabolic.com and look under success stories, the tab for 50-99 pounds lost. That might not be exactly right, but close. You have to scroll down to see her in that red dress.

Oh wow! They didn't tell me it was on there! This just doesn't seem real.

Well, I woke up this morning feeling like crap again. Not sure if I was re-lapsing or what. But I am feeling better and the best part is that I got my butt back in gear...FINALLY! Keeping it pretty much to the green menu. A few more days like today and it will be my habit again. Thank goodness!!!

I am having a tough week this week. I've let my guard down and am eating not so good stuff. I am going to go back to the green menu to get back under control. I've planned out my day today and will do the same tomorrow and Sunday. I have also slacked on exercise for some reason. I'm getting back on track with that today also. The scales haven't shown a gain yet but I want to get this under control before I slide even further down the slippery slope.

We're going through the same thing, but I'm guessing I gained which is why I won't go near the scale yet. I had a good day yesterday and am doing again today. It's amazing how much better I feel keeping the junk out of my system.

We'll make it through this. We've come to far!

Question Question

I went to stabilization WI today and was the same. I was happy with that. I am having trouble eating all the food on the plan. We talked about having one of the 2 dairy servings as a snack but I didn't think to ask if I could have a fruit as a snack also. Breakfast is the toughes one for me to get starch, protein and fruit all three. I drink milk at breakfast as one of my dairy servings. So my question is could I have the fruit as a morning snack instead of at breakfast time? Or say my lunch fruit as a morning snack instead of at lunch? I eat breakfast around 6:30 but don't go to lunch until 1:00 so I have to have a snack in between, at least during the work week.

Y, is this your final week of stabilization? If so, I don't see an issue with it because when you get your maintenance menu, it's basically 1200 calories and you just have to make sure to get in everything for the day. They didn't really give me a plan as to what meal or what time. It's kinda up to me as I understand it.
