    Today at work I have 4 different people ask if I have lost weight. It feels great to get compliments, and to know my hard work is paying off! I felt great in my skin (its been a while) today and my clothes aren't so tight.

  3. R3/P2 -- The scale says 200# on the nose. (77.4 Pounds Lost!!)

    by , November 9th, 2011 at 02:43 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    And I sincerely hope that this is the LAST time that I ever see a number that starts with a 2 in front of my weight. I am so excited!!!

    I am trying not to get my hopes up though. My weight has been all over the board on this particular P2 because of the cold that I had last week. Down 3 pounds, Up 1.6, Down 1.0, Up .08. Ugh. I am super glad that the scale didn't say 199.8 this morning or something. That would have bummed me out. ...

  5. Why no broccoli on the list?

    I don't see broccoli on the list of veggies. Does this mean it's not allowed?

  7. VLCD Day 3

    Lost one pound -- which I consider something of a miracle, since I cheated with a sugarcookie. Ugh, it was so not worth it -- the guilt and fretting about how badly I'd messed up was AWFUL.

    At the same time, though, I really have a problem. I work full time, but part of that work is overnight, like last night. It means I don't have to worry so much about my bosses, but it also means that I really have to sleep well during the day, and have something to distract me.

  9. Time to Change ! Day 17

    So this is day 17 and I have only lost 9 pounds, I am discouraged to say the least. I figured by now i would be in the double digits. Oh well, I will keep plugging along. One day at a time, one pound at a time. I love using Truvia better than my stores brand. I am glad my Mom told me to try it. I have been planning the Thanksgiving meal and trying to find low fat side dish ideas. Isn't there a recipe for " skinny " mashed potatoes? I can't find it. Anyway, I have a plan in my head ...

  10. Attention P3ers: Starbucks Sugar Free Peppermint Mocha Breve is AH-MAZING!

    I just have to share the news with all people who are on the sugar-free path. Starbucks just brought back the sugar free mocha, and it is soooo much tastier than it was a few years ago when they tried one. They now have an actual mocha sauce in it. I can't even tell you how delicious it is. Ask for the Breve which is using half-and-half instead of milk for less carbs. I was a crazy person and had two Tall sf peppermint mochas yesterday (one in the morning and one during a meeting there at night), ...
