I am 42 years old and going through a world of change right now. I expect it to last for the next couple years. After losing a job I dearly loved last summer, I am working on opening my own company and, in the meantime, trying to find other other small jobs to keep the money coming in until I can get my project off the ground.

This change has also involved a move back to my hometown to be closer to my family. Not an easy move or an easy decision, since I was DEARLY connected in the town that I left.

And, to top all of this off, I decided that after a lifetime of being overweight, I was committed to taking off the weight. I am not the heaviest I've ever been (that was 325!!), but if I kept living the way that I was, I'd get there. There is so much out of control in my life right now, that I wanted to address something that I know I can take control of. So, in late January I decided that I was going to do it.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I think you have to figure out what works for you. I usually weigh myself every day because it helps me evaluate what works and what doesn't work for me. However, there are some times when I am depressed or the hormones are especially active. At those times I skip it and make sure I weigh in after the phase has passed. If I find that I'm letting it determine my mood, then I skip it. If I'm just using it as a tool and am in that state of mind, then I do it every day.

I agree with using whole foods. But I also know myself...sometimes I just need something really good....and although I love the pumpkin, it doesn't always do it for me. Instead of falling off that wagon, I use the jello or something like that. The site has some great ideas!!!

Number of Pounds Lost vs. Sizes Down
The bigger you are, the more weight it takes to drop down a size. I have lived it...but its also physics! Smile

Induction is hard for this!!! I don't think you can have rhubarb or pumpkin on Induction, but I could be wrong.

I usually buy diet root beer or something like that. I don't have more than one a day, but it really helps me. I also will eat sugar free jello with whipped cream on it - that's one of my favs. I buy the whipping cream for my coffee. But if i can manage to skip it in the morning, I will whip a little up with some stevia (or sometimes I skip the "whipping" part and just eat it in its creamy, liquid, natural form) and eat that or put it on my jello. In extreme cravings I have bought the diet jello pudding and mixed it with half and half instead of milk. That is TOO GOOD. And, I must add, not completely legal on Induction either! Sugar free popsicles also do the trick for me.

Good luck!
