I added a new twist on water intake yesterday: beef broth! I have a hard time keeping my water intake up, and suspect I'm not getting enough minerals. Chilled broth is delicious!

Great job & awesome goals! You are so right about it being easier not to cheat when you see the weight coming off. No candy in the world tastes as good as coming closer & closer to your goals while gaining more & more self confidence every day! Nothing feels as good as accomplishment!

You can call me, FGJ or Jenny! The thing that kept me motivated, even when the scale got stuck, was trying on new clothes & realizing how I was still getting smaller. Sometimes even when I couldn't afford a new outfit, I would still just try something on! πŸ˜‚ Coming from a size 24, I can remember my first few trips to the "normal" size sections. I felt so out of place! I felt like ppl we're looking at me thinking, "What is she doing over here. She'll never find anything to fit her here." When I slid into a size 12 (my goal at the time), I almost lost it! I cried like a baby in that dressing room! Then, the day came when I was wearing a very loose 10 & saw an awesome pair of 6 jeans on sale. I was thinking, "I know there's no way, but I'll just see how much I lack." Them suckers fit!!! I had lost so much in such a short amount of time that it took probably a year for my mind to catch up with my new body. It is a wonderful experience that I can't wait for all of you to experience, and everyone of you CAN do it!!!!

If you allow yourself artificial sweeteners or stevia, I will sometimes have a glass of iced tea with Splenda or stevia to curb a sweet tooth!

ty jenny...ive gone from a size 46 pants to a 42...an accomplishment that like you said..its motivation to be able to buy clothes off the rack instead of having to specail order them...

Love your can do attitude. I started my plan about 7 weeks ago. I feel so much better. Good luck in making your goal.

Someone left some almond biscotti flavoured tea at the office, and a couple of weeks ago during one of my (many) 3 PM IF I DON'T HAVE A CHOCOLATE BAR RIGHT NOW I'M GONNA KILL SOMETHING moments, I tried it. No sugar, just the scent, and the warm water filled me up and fooled my body into thinking I had sugar. And noo...it is certainly not the same...but it got me through the craving (and kept my colleagues alive). Might work for you too! :-)
