Thank you all!
I am proud of you! Mini wins are wonderful! Make sure you journal that mini win, okay? there are going to be weeks ahead when you might need to look back at today to motivate you through a plateau or a "bad week". I don't know how many times I have to look back at my journal from last year just to see where I have been and how far I have come.

I am sure Uncle Richie is smiling at you. I am sure you felt a lot better knowing you had a nice suit to wear for the funeral. Journal this!

Hi B - These are mind tricks I've used. 1) I have 5 pound goals. They're quicker to reach. Less overwhelming. Doable. 2) Daily, I look at the 'Calorie Balance' graph below the 'food log'. Visual evidence of staying within the daily food goal. 3) I DO NOT EVER permanently record any weight gain. Keep it on a sticky note. And I immediately record EVERY weight loss. My scale measures two-tenths of a pound. (I found permanently recording weight gains gets me going in a negative spiral.) 4)Visually seeing my past progress is motivating. More so than numbers. I look at the "Reports" charts and graphs regularily. Ones that motivate me - 'Trends- Calories Eaten vs Calories Burned-Calories Burned Ovetime' and 'Weight-Weight Change'. The little five pound goals add up to impressive visuals. Good luck to you B

Default Wow what great help Thanks to all

today I did my daily weigh in, and as I walked through the closet I found myself looking at bluejeans I have not worn in a great deal of time , I have many sizes., When I started this journey I was wearing size 52 pants I found the BDU style cargo pants light and comfortable however today I slide into some size 48 Jeans easily, after fastening the button, I was able to slide my hands in the waiste band and move them back for forth with room, The 46's are a bit snug!, I am pleased with this and thought I would share it

Thanks for all of the help again !
