This has absolutely NOTHING to do with weight loss but it was one of my New Years resolutions. One was to learn Spanish and the other was to learn how to play the banjo!
I just got back from my first banjo lesson. I think I am going to like it, no- LOVE it Now to get started on the Spanish........

Hi everyone!

Jen, don't beat yourself up too badly, just get back on track. I haven't been able to allow myself those free meals yet. My reason is because I think I would not be able to stop. One of my co workers had a burger from my favourite burger joint, so I went into his office while he ate and just breathed in the yummy smell of that burger!

I had a salad with chicken and egg whites for dinner, and I am only at 790 calories today! I need to eat more, but at the same time it is weigh in day tomorrow!! Oh what to do!! LOL. I will have a couple tiny clementine oranges later, but not sure what else. I am still low on protein....jez I have a problem getting enough protein. Does anybody else?

I actually lost more weight! Okay, I got on the scale yesterday afternoon and got really discouraged because I weighed 213 and then had my cake last night and Apple Bees today. I figured I would weigh maybe 214 tonight. But I got on the scale at Publix and weigh 211.5! I can't wait for the weigh in tomorrow! I am stunned. I know my weight loss will slow down but YAY! Inspires me to keep pressing on.

Kathy- I was the same way with the cheat meals! When I would cheat I would lose it. Break the diet... and gain even more weight... BUT having Johnny here to help me and keep me pressing on is the only reason I am still on Track. Just sayin.

Just for a quick update and end to my drama, I went out with Mom tonight, and picked up a new scale. Ironically enough, it was the Biggest Loser scale from Taylor. For just a basic, digital model, that was accurate up to 400 pounds, it was the best price. Sadly enough, it said I weigh 335 , so I've been busy adjusting all my stuff, but I think I'm just going to keep doing what I've been doing. I've gotten used to eating between 1200-1400 calories a day, and that just means I won't have to adjust as I get smaller.

Since everybody seems to be weighing in on Fridays, I'll just make that my day as well, and keep the measurements on Tuesdays, that way I can have like a mid week check!!

I'd like to give a big HUGE congratulations to everyone for working out so diligently this week so far!! I'm proud of all of you!

Well, I'm going to go brush my teeth and curl up with my awesomely gianormous book for a little bit before I go to sleep! I look forward to "seeing" you all here tomorrow, and I KNOW its going to be with excellent news of success!! Good night, everyone!

p.s. To showmenow, thank you for the wonderful words, I would have never in a million years thought of myself as inspirational to anyone. That's inspiring to me!! And highly motivating. You made my night!

All your post are really motivational , I really need that accountabillity or I would have just blown it off tonight, so thanks all. As someone earlier had said congrats on everybody's hard work. We've done good!!

I'm having the same problem. I eat meat but it doesn't seem to be enough protein. I guess maybe I need some cottage cheese or something.

I hate cottage cheese! Plus it is really high in sodium. I know tuna is a great source of protein, but I can't eat that everyday. Chicken I eat often, but it has fat too...as does beef and pork. Nuts too, lotsa fat and calories - although I do eat 11 almonds every day. Ya it is a pain getting the right amount of protein.

Daisy, welcome!!
