I remember posting a question on someone else's thread about FF Cool Whip having hydrogenated oils in it but I don't remember anyone saying that it was ok. I'm asking because the PB cups sound really good to me and I found an all natural peanut butter that is just peanuts. So if somebody could give me direction on the FF Cool whip I'd be set!
As far as life in general, daily it's a struggle to start Day 1, Phase 1. I always seem to blow it. The weirdest part is though, that I don't have the guilt that I used to get with weight watchers. When I went off program my attitude would be, "oh great, what's the point?" and I'd binge for days. Most days on SB when I blow it it's been chocolate bars or a bagel and I think, "oops, just means I'll go 14 more days from today" and I don't eat more chocolate or more bagels, I just get right back up again. Even though I've failed to do more than 2 completely 100% days OP in a row, I don't feel like a failure and I still have absolutely no doubt in my mind that this will work when I can go 100% regularly. I have to be honest and say even if I don't get to be 100% for another month (which I really don't want to be the case!), I don't feel like it's the end of the world and I'll still just be plugging away.
I had a girl friend say the other day that I look like I've lost weight since she's seen me last (about a month ago). I haven't stepped on a scale since the 10th of August and while I'm sure if I've lost weight there is no way it's more than 5lbs in the month, I feel better in general. This is DEFINITELY a good thing!
Thanks for putting up with me and my consistently starting again. If someone could answer my FF Cool Whip question I'd greatly appreciate it.
