Happy Friday everyone! Today is my last day of work for a week! I love Thanksgiving week - my favorite time of year.

I already did all my food shopping for Thanksgiving. We are having all the traditional foods plus a few OP foods.

Have a great day everyone!

GOOOOOAAAALLLLLL!!!!!!
I reached my goal this week, surpassed it by two pounds actually. My numerical weight goal wasn't all that important to me though - the big things I wanted to do were: fit into my pre-baby skinny jeans and not groan when I see pictures of myself. And I have succeeded. So that makes 22 lbs since 9/21. I'm on phase 4 now and I've been feeling good. And my husband gets home from Afghanistan at some point this weekend, we haven't seen each other since July...I think he'll be pleasantly surprised.
Hope everyone has a great Friday!

Default OH NO, I hope I didn't mess this up

Good Morning Everyone,
I made it thru day 3 at work. Didn't touch anything that was not OP. I haven't told hubby that I started this plan, I just wanted to surprise him with the weight loss. The reason for not tellin him is because I have been on so many diets and then failed. Well last night when I got home I started supperd. Cooked hamburgers and was wrapping min in lettuce when he got home and said Surprise, Happy Birthday.....he had gone to the Chinese restaurant and gotten me my favorite, Sesame Chicken and Vegtable Lo Mein. I stalled for about 20 minutes, cried a little cause I did not want to tell him that I could not have this for dinner and explain why. So finally I sat down at the table and I ate the steamed broccoli and then had about 6 little pieces of the chicken, I wrapped them in Romaine lettuce leaves and ate then that way. And then I was full. I did not touch the rice or the vegtable lo mein. I put the lo mein in the frig and gave the rest if the chicken and rice to my daughter for dinner. Then I went into the bedroom and cried for a bit because I felt so bad for eating that. I have never felt so guilty for eating something that I know I can't have. Please tell me that I have not really ruined all that I have done for the past couple of days.

On a good note, I have a NSV...I know that I have only been on this plan for 3 days, and this really surprised me. I have had to go by extenders for my bra's because they have gotten too tight. This morning I forgot to put the extender on it and it doesn't hurt.

Brush off your guilt, grab a glass of water, and flush the lingering guilt away. Today is a new day, eat on plan, you know what to do. Congratulations on the NSV
