Spices will become your best friend.

We were just laughing about this at our house today. I have never had so many spices in my life. The cupboard is bursting! This is very weird for a non cook person.

What a bummer! I'm such a whole-food solution girl. Do beneficial bacterial help? Things like homemade saurkraut, kimchee, kombucha, all with the live cultures? I'm just trying to learn more here...it sounds like a very problematic issue but luckily you have found the course of action that works!

Nope! Tried that too. Only makes my symptoms worst, since the good bacteria is the problem. It's in the wrong part of my intestines.

I left my first job LATE cuz I had to come back to the clinic someone came AFTER I closed at 3pm so I didn't leave here til 345 and had to be at my second job for 430. I didn't bring anything to eat for supper becuase I was going home to eat supper before going to the second job so after running late thank goodness there is a Subway right next door to my second job. I walked there, got a double chicken chopped salad brought it into the breakroom and ate it. They were all sitting around eating cake and I was eating my salad drinking my water. My assistant came up to me, hugged me, I looked at her and said what is that for? she said I am so proud of what you have done and for you to be able to sit here, eat your salad while we eat cake is just incredible. I said thank you, she started crying....lol...I was like its ok, I am not bothered with it, I am good. She said I know but you are so strong, I told her, it came with time. I am not letting myself get back to where I was....I GOT THIS.....she hugged me again, still crying and went to her office.....she knew me when I was bigger, I worked with her for 15 yrs, This new me, is totally different than the OLD me. I was spunky before but always dressed in shorts and a polo cuz that is all that fit me. Now I am "fashionable" and can wear REGULAR size clothes...so yea I am LOVING this new me, this new body, new attitude.....people notice and that puts a smile on their faces along with mine!!

I was in a very similar situation yesterday. Big birthday celebration and i was chatting and drinking my water. 8 people offered me cake and ice cream and I politely declined. One of my friends came up to me and told me how much she admired my strength and didn't think she could do it. I told her she can resist and I will help. We had a great conversation and I asked her questions about her son. We talked through the entire party. She didn't eat cake and she was so surprised at how she enjoyed herself and didn't miss the cake. It really bugs me though how everyone STILL watches me like a hawk! Are they waiting for me to fail? Waiting to see if I can still resist? Watching to see if I am gaining? I just don't get it!

Hopefully they are watching to see if they can learn to be as strong as you are. You look amazing so how could they not be in awe!

Sometimes I think they are watching because they are jealous of your strength and weight loss. It is like they are thinking "I sure wish I could resist all the temptations." I am not generally a jealous person, but I have become envious of other friends losing weight since It has always been my biggest concern. They will quit watching soon. It is so nice you offered to help your friend. I have been reading a lot on how to maintain (yes, not even near goal, but over prepared ;) Anyway, they all talk about helping others with weight loss is really helpful to you in keeping your weight off long term. So, it is great for HER and for YOU that you are mentoring her. You have done so great on this program. Congratulations

Great job Holly!!! You are definitely an inspiration for others :)

I wonder the same things sometimes - are you watching what I'm eating (or NOT eating) because you're interested? Or because my failure justifies you not even trying? I kind of classify them with the people who tell me "you'll gain it all back and then some". I'm going to make a t-shirt for my 1 year maintenance anniversary that says "How Do Ya Like Me Now???"

Per the suggestions of others, I went ahead and ordered 3 pairs of jeans online on Black Friday. Sizes 12, 10, and 8. It took a lot to step out in faith and buy those 8's!!!

I was comfortable in a size 14 just this month. I just tried on the size 12 jeans and they fit great! I'm so excited, especially since this week is my TOM and I am seeing a complete stall on the scale.

I am back to being gung ho and motivated!

I miss peanut butter. Plain and simple, no fancy cravings, would just like some peanut butter.

So...does anyone know, can we have PB2 on phase 2 or 3? That may be my new motivation to stick to it:)....if not just lie to me & tell me the truth when I get there!!

Well it looks like we're getting a bit of a storm tonight, possibly a dump of snow, and it's bitter cold outside! But it's nice and warm in here, so it's all good...

I spent a few days working in a freezing cold warehouse this week, and it seems you can shiver off the pounds... down 7 lbs this week! Maybe I'll have to spend more time out there.... ;)

Having some friends over tomorrow night, then going to play pool. I have a plan, and have prepared some IP friendly snacks for myself, and stocked up on fizzy water... should be good times!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

I am 99% sure that you can incorporate Peanut Butter (or PB2) in your Phase 3 breakfasts, and I know I've seen many maintaners post that they use PB in their P4 breakfasts.

Woo hoo!!! I haven't been brave enough to go out and buy smaller sizes yet, but I love that my 12's still fit even though I'm stalling too!!

Welcome to the group! I find opinions vary as to whether people like WF products. I think pretty well everyone likes the pancake syrup. Does your clinic have the sample sizes of WF products (mine does). you could buy a bunch and try the different flavors to see what you like??

You all are SO sweet! I know how helpful it is to have support and i will support anyone who needs it. Scorbett, I want that shirt! :)

Good gravy what a day! Very very sad about the school shooting north of us in Casper, WY. Thinking of you MommaHen... I am sure it was rough all around up there. Then, we had a big meth lab bust her in little ol Laramie and then the guy escaped and ran with a weapon so all of the schools were in lockdown! I was worried about my son because he was at an orchestra rehearsal at the high school which is a block away from the meth lab. Everyone is OK, the guy is still at large but my family is home safe. We got home late so my dinner tonight was scrambled eggs and veggies. I was so hungry I was afraid if I didn't eat something quick, I would blow it. I will be starting phase 3 in a couple of days and I am so nervous now. Excited all week, nervous today. Sheesh, so hard to please me... :D Happy Weekend everyone!
