Today was weigh-in day for the weight loss competition I am doing. My scales said 216, theirs say 214. I will take either one! But as far as the contest, in 4 weeks I have lost 9 pounds. I have not been this weight since high school. Gee, 30 years ago. I am just glad that something has finally clicked and I am on the right road for this journey.

I love cauliflower! Try roasting it in the oven. Spray it with olive oil flavored spray and whatever seasoning you like. I do that with all my vegetables when I cook them.

I too love my veggies and have just started eating kale have you tried it cut up into strips and stem removed from middle leaves then sprayed with olive oil spray and lemon juice and then bake it till crispy I munch on this when I am hungry and want a snack.

Thanks Vickey, I actually already do that.

Today I went shopping in a regular store. Tried on a pair of pants and they actually fit plus they were on sale. Bonus. Was so excited, came home and threw out 3 pairs of pants that were the larger size.

*Blink. Blink* I just reached my first goal weight of 155!!!!!!!! I gave myself until June (my friend's wedding) to do it. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would accomplish it at all, let alone so quickly! I haven't seen that number on the scale since middle school, and I honestly can't remember being any lower. I have gone from obese to simply overweight, I feel incredible, knowing that I am feeding my body more and more good things, and I have started doing a yoga for weight loss routine. I think that my greatest inspiration has definitely been this thread! Thanks everyone for sharing your stories!! <3 I guess I need to go and set a new goal...haha
