Happy Thanksgiving fellow Nov IPers! I'm looking forward to tomorrow and being 100% OP. Going to friends for dinner. They know about my journey and are 100% supportive. I will bring spinach and broccoli and eat their turkey. I just hope I won't be tempted by the alcohol.

I start a new job next week. My future boss has already texted me about 3 lunches and dinners over the next 2 weeks. This is not going to be easy but I'm 9.6 pounds down and I'm not stopping until this is done.

I had an emotional meltdown yesterday. I cried quite a bit. I waited too long for lunch and I'm having a lot of dreams and thoughts about the past. I was widowed several years ago and we moved into this house over Thanksgiving weekend. This year is rougher and I know the diet is impacting me, but I also know that this is the first time I've felt like I'm really doing something to take care of myself since he died. It's sad but also very liberating.

I wish everyone success and resolve!

My coach measures me. Maybe you can ask your's to measure you on your next WI. Congrats on 4 pounds!

Hardest part of the day was cooking things I couldn't taste. It's very hard to make mashed potatoes without tasting to make sure there's the right amount of salt!

Still 100% OP since day 1!

I find the same thing! I get my daughters to taste for me.

Congrats on being 100% OP! I've had a few slip ups, but I'm trying not to be too hard on myself.

That's so awesome SkinnyChiz! Great job! You're a total rockstar.

I swear, I love this forum and reading people's losses every week. It's the motivation I need to not cheat or slip up.

Hi5 Breezy.. I've been 100% OP since day one too! Made it through two Thanksgiving dinners and a night out at a Mexican restaurant for my boyfriend's birthday. Was not easy either.. Mexican food is such a weakness of mine!

THX I love reading everyone's progress too!
Way to go Lexi!
I really haven't been hungry the last two days. I have been struggling to eat all my veggies. I am making up a menu for the week....so I can be more prepared.
I made the oatmeal zuchini muffins....delicious! I was able to get 6 out of my recipe. I highly recommend them !
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving down there!

Evening folks! I fell off the wagon back in September. I stopped at 165 because I felt SO happy with myself... so happy that I ate like my old self and now I'm back up to 180! Feeling very depressed and bad about myself but I'm happy to be back on the forum and excited to turn it around tomorrow
