lysma Congratulations on moving into the 180's, hope your taco's didn't undo you entry into the 180's, but if it is only salt as the cause, it's an easy fix. Hope you bike gets there soon.
releasing Hope today goes easier for you, It gets tougher, even with having daily losses, to stay the course after so many weeks, well really months. I'm hoping it is just the fruit issue and nothing more. It's funny how former smokers reacat to being around smokers. I was a former smoker too. Still love the smell as it is being smoked, but HATE the smell of stale cigarettes-yuck!! However, besides the health issues, have you seen what the cost of a pack of cigarettes costs today- I would think that would be enough of an incentive to stop, even at a discount they are a a lot of money.
angie You are finding that balance of dieting and maintaining- never an easy thing- going from eating like a bird to a truck driver in a short window of time. Still confused about this laser thing and what it does and what it's for. But it does sound interesting.
hondo You must be busy at work, playing catch-up is never fun, and kind of ruins that euphoric post vacation bliss!! Getting it all back into high gear sort of shocks the system. But like everything, you will find your stride and just not even moan about it. I really do admire that about you.
as for the rest of group hope you are all doing great
afm- back down to my first day of P3. I think now that I slowed down the introduction of fruit and a few other things, that has helped. However for those of you that aren't in P3 yet, it is more diffcult that P2- not tryring to scare you, but even getting in 1200 cals the first few days is hard, let alone by the end of the first P3 wk getting up to 1500cals by only increasing the quanity of P2 food. I am snacking on protein- chicken, meat, shrimp, etc. which is a weird thing to do. But I really am determined not to attempt to lose weight during these 6 weeks off.
Hope everyone has a great day. I'll check back later.
