Well folks, welcome to a new month!

I am taking one day at a time and am doing well this week. How is everyone else doing?

My wieght has been so up and down! It is very frustrating!!! As soon as I have a loss of 3lbs I gain 2. I am staying on plan so I do know what the problem is. I have resolved that I WILL see this thru. Even one pound per week lost is worth it to get to my goal. I at this point I really don't know how much I have lost because it keeps fluctuating.

Has anyone here used the carb/fat blocker? I says to take 2 daily perferrably with a meal. Is that correct and not 2 before each meal?

I used and still use the fat and carb blocker, but I only used it when I went out to eat.

Totally understand Patzi - I am doing good staying on track now. Took me a few days after my trip, but I am 100% ready.

I am watching the scale creep down at home. (losing what I gained on trip) Am curious as to what the center will say.

Hello to all and happy February. I can't believe we're already in a new month! I've just finished the yellow menu and now on to the blue menu for days 5-10. Days 1-3 I had 1 oz. of choc. chips each night (not on plan), and finally yesterday managed to be 100% on plan all day and conquered the Choc. chip habit. I even went out to Outback and stayed on plan! The scale has already budged, down 3lbs! Hooray!! I love this plan. Wishing you all a fabulous On Plan Wednesday!

I will be taking a mini vacation to visit my son and grandson. And I am actually planing to go a bit off plan. Do I take two before each meal or just two with breakfast and have that do me for the whole day?

Hi ladies,

I joined MRC june 2012 and lost over 34 lbs and 29 1/2", started maintenance January 4, 2013, after about 6-7 mos I got off track and not I'm back and I'm going to re-enroll this Saturday so it will be my second go around and I'm hoping this time I can stay on plan. I gained about 15 lbs but I'm going for a loss of 20lbs to get under my goal! I loved this forum when I was doing the plan so I'm hoping to get your support again! I see a lot of new people and some familiar ones when I was on here, Hi patzi, you are my inspiration!

Wish me luck!!

Good luck to you Skelley - my story sounds a lot like yours. I contacted my center a couple of weeks ago and asked about re-enrollment but I have not taken the plunge yet. I have been trying to do it on my own and I have come to realize that the accountability is a big factor to successful weight loss for me.

faerychic: Oh I remember you and we are very close in height. I agree accountability is a big factor for me as well but I need that push right now and support of going into the center. goodluck to you also, I want so much to get back to my goal weight and stay on maintenance, but during the stabilization I didn't follow it thru every week and I think that was my downfall, I didn't find out what my trigger foods were! I look forward to watching both our journeys!

They are charging me $99 for additional 10 wks, my maintenance expired 1/4/14, when you re-enroll how do they start you out? Do you do pre-cond all over or do they just start you on the green menu, does anyone know?

Hey, Selway, Skelley, and Faerychic, it looks like we all share a similar story-getting to goal, but not seeing it through to maintenance. That's what I love about this site. You realize that you aren't alone.

Hopefully, we can be there to support each other when we hit goal. I agree that Patzi is such a great inspiration and role model and to be successful and keep the weight off, I plan to do exactly what she does....stay connected and keep checking in.

Anyway, that's getting a little ahead of myself. Got to get to goal first! Today is day 3 of the blue menu. The scale is down another pound today. It's so nice to get the early positive reinforcement. I was really hungry yesterday afternoon after working out pretty hard in the morning, and I had a date to lift weights with my neighbor before I could make dinner, so I had a few almonds (6) to hold me over and get me through my workout. If it weren't for the workout date, I'd have just had an early dinner.

I plan to add a little snack when I get this hungry, cuz I am working out daily. I'll just find something that is low carb like nuts or another HNS and keep the calories below 100. I didn't see a bump in weight this morning, like I have in the past when I've gone off plan with high carb food. So, I think this will work and I only will add the extra snack in when I get that super gnawing in the gut hunger, not just craving a snack or when I'm a little hungry.

Happy Friday to all and wishing you a great On Plan Weekend! Onward and downward
