Got my first compliment from my hubby the other day. Definitely seeing some inches come off - clothes getting looser. I'm looking forward to that happening more quickly as I get closer to goal (remember the paper towel roll story). Was able to wear one of my sleeveless blouses that I bought after reaching goal last year. Bottom half still has some catching up to do but I'm getting there.

I don't know my starting measurements, but I know that I've lost 27.5 inches! I'm thrilled with where I am, even if my body fat percentage is measuring higher than it's "supposed" to be. It was something like 35% or 36%, and it's supposed to be under 32%. I'm not at all worried about that, because I feel fantastic!

I'll try to get some before and after pictures posted soon

Keep up the great work, friends!

I almost forgot to add that my mom signed the 30 pound board today! AND, she's rocking some size 14 MISSUS pants today! She doesn't need to shop in the women's section anymore!!!

That happens to me when I weigh in at the center verses at home, it's always higher. Jen told me since I'm going into maintenance to always use my scale at home since that will be the one I use from now on!!! Congrats on making transition and congrats to your mom you both have done awesome!

Hello Everyone!! I just got a call today and they are opening a center here in my town next month!! I switched jobs a couple years ago so wasn't making that hour drive any more where the closest center was. Trying to do it on my own but I just can't seem to succeed without anyone weighing me in weekly. Gained all my weight back
When I was on the plan, I bought some of their shakes but mostly supplemented with Syntrax nectar protein powder and didn't buy any of the supplements. I had my own vitamins and fish oil. I guess I'll talk to them next week and see if that's ok.
How does everyone like it??

Default Maintenance

Well ladies it's official as of today I'm have now entered maintenance!!! No more supplements, I had a total of 13" lost and they put me on 1300 calories a day. I don't follow any menu but of course I have to eat clean like I have been but she just told me since I use myfitnesspal that I can track my calories that way. I'm excited!!! I reached my goal finally, first time I didn't and wasn't sure I would this time but I didn't hit my goal until my 3rd week on transition!!

I'm still on the first week of transition, but the food choices they had me add are not working well for my body I'm hoping next week will work better. My body clearly hates starches...A LOT!

Mine does too, that's why they call it transitions to see what works and what doesn't, on week 4 they add even another starch and fruit. I told Jen it was too much food, so I didn't add it everyday just mixed things up. Goodluck
I go this Friday at 10am for my first maintenance weigh in.

Smile Ready to rejoin!

Joined in 2012 and was very successful w the weight loss and lost 35 lbs. gained muscle and felt great. Changed jobs and there was not a center near me to go to so stopped going and ended gaining all back in 2 years.
Got a call last week and they are opening a new location in my town in July.
Woo hoo ! I joined Weight Watchers last year and hated it- too many carb choices and just a few pounds lost. Plus the online community on their website are ....well my mama taught me if I don't have anything nice to say- don't say it. LOL!
Two years ago I paid $300 for 17 weeks and I think another $100 for the hormone test
Can anyone let me know estimated cost now and your feelings about the program? Results? I'm ready to start losing!!

Bigdog: I joined june 2012 and lost 30lbs and after a year I gained about 15 lbs back, I rejoined in feb 2014 before it got out of control, I did 10 wks for $99, I think if you have been a previous member you get a discount. The supplements and other products are where most of the expense is but it does work. goodluck on your journey you can do this.

Hi Skelley! Congrats on making your goal and on maintenance
I've been reading the posts and see some familiar names and love to see the support and motivation here as always! You, Patzi and others really motivate me. Getting older so seems like it gets harder to lose weight and all my regain is in my belly and hips. Nothing fits and I'm buying larger sizes and cutting the tags out. Lol! Who am I fooling? Seems like there are less people posting- I remember a couple years ago - the admin would warn us when we were posting so much. and would have to close the session.
Hopefully everyone is posting recipes and motivational tips. I am reading back posts and getting excited about rejoining!!

Unhappy New to mrc

Hello all,

I just starting with MRC on 6/5/14 and lost 7.2 the first week. I am starting to get discouraged because I am missing chocolate so much. What dose one do?

I love the chocolate protein shakes which really helped w the chocolate cravings . The protein hot chocolate is excellent too.. Just saw this recipe on a current post
Chocolate Brownie
1 hot chocolate protein packet
1 teaspoon of olive oil
2 oz of water
1 packet of splenda
Mix all in small bowl and microwave for 45 seconds. It will be kind of gooey but good. I added a bit of instant decaf coffee in mine.
