Congrats!! How wonderful!

Also, just thought I'd add a thank you. Your post was very timely. I'm struggling with cravings horribly tonight. My house is loaded with cotton candy and cakes that my kids won at halloween parties this weekend. Everyone's in bed and I keep walking past the goodies. I thought I'd check on board before cheating and here was your post. You inspired me to chew some gum instead.

Great job and thanks for the motivation! Keep up the good work!

Great job girl!

I said this before, but, I will repeat, whoever thought of the signing of the board is a genius. It makes us feel so good!

Shopgirl,
Congratulations. Doesn't it feel great. For an extra boost pick up something that weighs 20 pounds....isn't it heavy? Just think that is how much you lost.
AWESOME.

3ducksmom,
I have two teenage girls at home. One works at a Chocolate Store where they make their own chocolate, it is hard to resist so I know how you feel. I just think of all the empty calories in it and it makes it so much easier to ignore.
