Congrats, CelticHarpie! That's great!

Went in today and am down a total of 19 pounds. My jeans that didn't fit to well a month ago are getting baggy. Love it!

Awesome news Jen & Patzi! Woo hoo!!!

After running into a bit of a plateau, I'm seeing the weight consistently drop on the scale. This morning, I was down another 2 lbs from my weigh in on Monday. It's working!

I received an 8" ribbon last Friday. I go for my wi today. According to my own scales I'm down 8 lbs. in 3 weeks. I'll take it!

I'm going out of town Friday for some fun with my husband and another couple. I'm scared. I will have to keep that ribbon in sight to remind me how well I'm doing and to not screw this up!

Hi.... Please don't be scared.. I am on maintenance now, but when I was losing the weight, I traveled lots, and I always made sure if I ate out, had protein, veggies, no butter and a side salad with oil and vinegar or lemon. I did not cheat, but I was able to enjoy myself .. Good idea bring the ribbon with you, you can be very proud of that. If I ate out for breakfast, I would ask for an egg white or egg beater omelet with veggies, and depending on what program you are on, you can have a slice of wholewheat bread or a piece of fruit. Lunch is a piece of cake..Order large salad, with chicken, fish, shrimp, etc..

Default Saying goodbye!

Hello to all the MRC'rs, I just wanted to say goodbye to all out there, and thanks for all the support you gave me during my journey. I've decided to quit MRC, I hit goal back in December and started on maintenance Jan 4th 2013, after about 3 months all my cravings came back and ever since I've been struggling with trying to keep my weight off, I gained back 10 lbs and just can't seem to get back to the plan to take it off. In my mind I can go back on plan but then I know in my mind that once they start introducing the foods back it will all start again with cravings. I applaud the ones who have been able to maintain like Patzi and applaud Jenb72 for coming back and taking another shot. I just don't have the energy anymore. One day i'll find what works for me. Good luck to all the newbies. Thanks again.

Skelley, I feel your pain. It really will be a lifelong battle for most of us. Good luck and I hope you find a plan that works for you.

Well, Skelley I feel your pain, too. I am back on my journey again after gaining back about 10 pounds. I am struggling to keep this weight off. I am determined again to lose this weight and keep it off. I think I just need to be hanging out with these girls on here that know how to do it. I know it is really going to be a lifetime battle for me. I bet I have lost 30 pounds over and over..for my entire life..but thank goodness I didn't just keep adding 30 more, 30 more, and 30 more...there is no telling what I would weigh if I had not dieted most of my life...I am learning that there are just some things I can't eat....mainly sugar
I hope you'll come back...remember we started around the same time...and I have struggled too....maybe we can find a way together!

I'm here! I'm on a business trip in NYC where I basically get to stay at the hotel for a conference for the next two days. Not gonna have time to explore the city. I weighed in before I left and maintained from Monday which is great considering I'm PMSing. I'll take it. Had a protein bar for breakfast, regular lunch, and because I'm by myself, I have complete control over restaurant and menu. I told the waiter all I wanted was Grilled Chicken and broccoli. Woohoo! Yay me! Didn't even touch the bread they brought out for me and that is definitely my weakness. I just finished my apple back in the room.

I've got my plans in place for the next couple of days and I am determined to stay completely on plan.

As for nighttime sweets, I will usually do either a bag of MRC Mini Crisps (you can have those twice a week) or MRC Gelatin. The MRC pudding is good too.
