Caty, major kudos on that 3.6 lb. loss your first week! Way to go! Sorry you had to hunt for us. Yeah, we start a new thread each Monday. The weather here in southern Ohio is really frigid, too. It got down to -5 last night. Right now (almost noon) it's 24 above zero on my thermometer, but it feels much colder than that.

Hope, I saw several people mentioning they missed you. Are you on a ship or in a hotel? Is the food expensive all over the part of the Carribean where you are. Have you sought out any places where the locals eat? I've never been there so have no idea what it's like other than what you've told us so far. I hadn't heard of Take Shape for Life. Like you, I think pre-packaged foods are fine for those who want to do it, as long as they're eating balanced meals, but it's not for me. My other thing is that I like that I have time to cook my own stuff--I very seldom make a recipe exactly as in the ingredients list.
