I know it is water weight but I am happy to say that this week I have lost 6 pounds. I am going back to work on Sunday and very excited. Looking for a new job and a positive attitude. Since I took time off for my knee(I have been off since Jan 23rd) my depression has sank to a lower level, and I haven't even so much as taken any of my meds. I sleep all day and just kept gaining weight. Well I have started again and really tried to stay focused. Funny, This site has really allowed me to vocalize and support others and open my eyes to see what I could be doing for myself. I am making up my own recipes for low or no carb meals and doing research to come up with different things to eat, which is not what I have done in the past. I took some lemon sugar free jello, heavy whipping cream and 6 packets of splenda and made a cheese cake like dessert. It was delish. I made some very low carb meatballs. Oh I am not only learning to cook differently, but I am also learning to take the things that I love and can't live without and turning it into something I can have with very little carbs. Okay so now I am rambling. More tomorrow.

We can do this if we take it day by day and step by step~

Sounds like you are taking some real positive steps Tina and I am proud of you. Keep up the good work. Congrats on the awesome loss this week, water weight or not a loss is a loss how I look at it, your 6 lb closer to your goal. Whoo hoo
Getting ready for work will try to check in later

Some of that may be water loss but I'm sure a good share isn't.

Looks like you and I have something in common this time around. This is the first time I'm fully and actively participating in my eating and weight loss changes.

Come to think of it, it is amazing how many areas of your life you can change by participating in your own life (vs just living.)

I'm glad things are looking up again Tina. The more I keep a positive attitude, the better I do. Know that we are here for you!
