Is it just me, or does anyone else have a LOVE of peanut butter? Really I should say, a love of Jif peanut butter. I have found that that is a very big "RED" light for me, I just can't have it around anywhere I can find it. I think I am a Jif Junkie. I thought I could handle having a small jar in the house, but I couldn't. When I went to put a tablespoon on my whole grain toast, I ended up eating 4 tablespoons first. Yikes! So I have offically banned Jif from my house, creamy is my biggest weakness, but chunky will do in a pinch. So now my husband has to find another brand. One I won't touch. Check one more item off the list! Oh well!Evil or Very Mad

I love the bulk peanut butter at whole foods that you crank from the machine.

I like Peanut Butter too, as do many folks apparently. Have you considered PB2? It's not the same as Jif, but honestly it's not bad and only a portion of the calories. I have to admit, I miss the crunchy peanut butter.

I love it, too. I've had PB2 in yogurt, and it's good. It reminds me of PB cheesecake.

Jif all the way, baby. I've tried Peter Pan, and it tastes too roasted for my tastes.
DISCLAIMER: I expect to lose this weight over the next 6 months to 5 years. I'm not going to feel like a failure if it takes an entire month to lose 1 pound. I'm going to feel like a success when that happens! I may offer advice that I'm currently not taking myself. Feel free to call me on that!

is there any store in mid-Michigan you can pick up PB2? I really would just like to try it first instead of ordering a minimum pack of 4.

edit: nevermind, found the retail locator link Smile

I'm a Jif lover too. I think anyone that loves Jif understand what that means. Smile

I am a PB2 convert. I love the stuff mixed with sugar free syrups from Davinci.

You fell off the wagon, don't beat yourself up. Just get back on track, go for a walk. Plan your meals, maybe work on a backup plan for your next social event so you'll do better. Soldier on!

advice needed
Make your way of eating and your exercise part of your life, not a diet that will run it's course. Sounds easy but it does take commitment and effort.

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
