Almost there! One more pound to go and I reach my goal of 175 lbs. I follow a few of you and can sure identify with the cravings, slips, mood swings, temptations and the excitement to see a few pounds disappear. I've had a few setbacks over the last two(I can't believe it) years but with a ton of resistance and perseverance I've gone from 216 lbs to 176 lbs. It is very difficult to eat my salads,oatmeal, etc when the five other members of my family are chowing down on spaghetti, meat loaf, chicken, etc, all in large quantities and at the same table. But with my scale and FS I stuck with it. It is not easy but I urge my fellow FS members to stay the course, the end is fantastic. The pain in my hips has gone, I feel better and can now look in a mirror without cringing. On this Easter weekend I am reminded that walking with my saviour gives me the strength when I most need it.
God bless you all and may you be protected from the virus.

sounds like the food you are eating is pretty boring and more of a chore and long term maybe unsustainable....
