Good Morning, Ladies and Gents! So glad to find you all here this morning. Like another posted, when the server wasn't available yesterday am, it made me realize once again how much I depend on this dialogue to keep me on track!
This P3/P4 is so far much better than previous round. I looked back this morning. was never below LIW, and crept up to about 4-5 lbs over as R2 approached. Maybe it's because I fought so hard for every pound gone that I'm not willing to spare any back? I'm eating well, higher ratio of protein, healthy dairy fats ( half & half, full fat greek yogurt, sour cream on occasion, probably 2 oz or cheese, maybe a bit more ) The difference is maybe that I'm experimenting less with the baking thing. Haven't made any almond flour herb crackers, or tried muffins. I did have waffles from a gluten free mix on Sunday.
and I do notice that my weight ALWAYS goes up following the days when I don't have an afternoon apple. That old adage about an apple a day might have more validity than I ever knew....
For all of you on P2 - Stay the Course! I am soooo glad that I did, and will again in March. An acquaintance of mine with less to lose is on her second round and is getting very very close to her goal weight. She texts me every day with questions and to share her success...and there's just enough competition between us that there is NO way that I'm letting her reach goal and not be able to show off the same success in a few months!
Meanwhile, I want to hang around, be a beacon of stability (and/or recovery if something starts to happen) and share in the adventure of healthy! So...thank you all for being here! Love each and every one of you!
