Week 9--another 4 lbs down!

Weighed in at 159.4 today, for a 4 lb drop from last week.

That's how it goes--1 lb, 1 lb, 1 lb and and then a good drop.

But that scale,...

You could also try eating an extra serving of protein, to get really full. The only way to lose the sugar cravings is not to give in, I find.

I like Boathouse farms yogurt-based dressings if I want something creamy for a change. You could use the ranch flavor. I think Walden Farms makes similar, too.

Late to the party, but wanted to say great job!

Over 50 lbs in 12 weeks is fantastic, Wonder Monkey--congratulations.

How did you find the program? Did you like this way of eating? What is your plan to either maintain or lose more?

1/13 195.6

Sad, but after two weeks of daily rice, noodles, occasional sweets, ice cream, etc. (it was all delicious) I can hardly expect any different.

Happy to be back!
