  1. Sugar !!!! Yes it's my addiction

    I've been told by many doctors that it is impossible to have a sugar addiction-- there is no such thing.

    But I beg to differ.

    Judge for yourself----

    When I see brightly colored candy-- I get excited and full of energy. I salivate and think about how wonderful that sweet piece of heaven would taste. I also think about how great I will feel after I chew it and enjoy it's sweet juices and it enters my bloodstream, where I will be elated.

  2. Inching down

    I woke up feeling bloated and well just cranky! Not quite sure why. I haven't deviated from my daily shredded raw cabbage, grilled chicken ( as a salad) with balsamic vinegar, a medium sized apple and a rice cracker. Some may think that the balsamic vinegar may have done it, but I've been having it since day 1- so I don't know.
    As I think about the last few days- I realize I haven't visited the bathroom ( in that oh so --looking forward to it way). So, i'm thinking that's the culprit. ...

  3. P3 Stabilization Day 19.......Happy Anniversary

    Today my husband and I celebrate 32 years of marital bliss (well, some biliss, some not so bliss but overall iit has been a blessing) . He has taken the day off from work and we are headed out to the beach to do some whale watching, then who knows what else! Tonight will be a dinner out at Mac's Shack. A sushi, raw bar and seafood restaurant here in town. Not fancy but really great food and for all the time that we have spent in this town we've never been there.

    So of course ...

  4. Reading and feeling better

    After reading anothers adventures -- all day yesterday-- I can see that there are so many facets to everyones journey. While I mainly look at the pounds gained/lost-- i'm learning that there are so many more avenues to explore.
    I've been on this site for quite a while-- on and off-- but I can honestly say, that I've never really understood how to navigate the site-- I am learning! I'm trying to take it step by step-- morsel by morsel. It's a wealth of information.

  5. Diet vs Lifestyle

    It's hard to believe that there are still diets that I never heard of. FMD- fast metabolism diet, is one of them. I googled it, and watched 3 short videos about the 3 phases. It sounded wonderful! I was intrigued and wanted to know more.
    With all of the diets and lifestyle change plans that I have tried, my favorite was the Zone. I was drawn to the Zone because it promotes that food is like medicine. We can use food to hurt ourselves or help ourselves. I am a firm believer in this ...

  6. Weights and BMI as supporters

    [url=http://www.TickerFactory.com/weight-loss/wmanZbj/]


    If you're anything like me-- you keep a daily log of your weight and bmi. I use to keep track of my food intake-- but being on P2- I find it easier to eat the same thing daily. I do occasionally change my fruit or veggie, but when I have good results- I tend to stick to those combinations.

  7. Support is Golden

    I've been on this forum-- on and off-- for several years. There is a wealth of information! But I have difficulty navigating the site. Maybe it's because I look at so many topics in 1 day. When I return, another day-- I find it hard to find my post-- or any responses to it.
    I also enjoy following certain bloggers, and forum responders-- but I have trouble locating them. Unless they are abundantly typing.
    Maybe I need to start writing down which topics I read and which page I read ...

  9. Sweet thoughts

    Yesterday, I started to have "sugary thoughts". This is when I think about candy, cakes and such-- just the mere thought of sugar-- gives me a feeling of euphoria. It seems to overtake my every thought. It is very hard not to succumb to these thoughts and feelings-- but I have been strong. I have stuck to P2 protocol. I have not cheated!
    Today, I still have my sugary thoughts-- but have kept myself busy. It's fathers day, so my family and I spent the day relaxing in the pool ...

  10. Snail crawl !

    I've been completely compliant with the protocol. Last week, the scale didn't move. Oddly enough, some friends noticed that I was losing weight. I'm wondering if my body needed to catch up with my loses. Either way, yesterday and today the scale started to move in a downward motion. YAY!
    Today is day 21- I'm down 16 lbs. I'm hoping to lose another 9 lbs before I enter phase 3.
    I'm putting off thinking about P3- as I haven't had much success in maintaining my lower weight. ...
