Hey Deb. Glad to hear your daughter is well also. We were expecting the worse, but it wasn't that bad. The wind picked up last night, but calmed down after midnight. Thank GOD because we live in a little cute dollhouse and it felt like it would blow down the street if the wind gust got any stronger, LOL!!

Glad the ptero is working for you. So happy. Shari, I can't wait until you try them. Hope they work for your too.

Im off to take my dose for the day. Have a good one, Ladies.

Oh lord, I know!! It is Halloween all over this office! I LOVE CANDY, but just don't handle it well. Can't stop at a bite or two. So I MUST RESIST!!!!...

Well I am happy to hear you are down from that candy corn adventure. The thing with candy and I, even if I don't have one bit of hunger, I can still eat it easily... which is why I must keep it out of sight!

Hope your day is going well! ( besides the evil temptation! ) ...

it's the same for me...I can't just eat a piece or two and even if I do it sends me into intense cravings for more stuff I shouldn't have. Why can't it be so easy as it appear to be for some other people? It's like an 'all or nothing' mindset for me so I must resist too!!

Thank you Shari! YES it is still keeping hunger away, my MIND IS TRYING to make me eat though, so I really have to watch that part.

I have no hunger, my tummy is full, but my mind wants things.. ya know? So far so good on denying that!!!

YES!! I find this is the perfect for that situation. When I have hunger AND cravings? OH HECK NO!!!!....

This gives me the strength to say no.. even if my mind wants it... for that reason alone, this is worth it!

Checking in real quick. Had a great visit at Mom's she is doing so much better!!!! Almost back to herself again. Only 2 months since hip replacement and broken wrist and she is walking around without her cane or walker, or anything! She has made up her mind that she is gonna get better and that was that!!

My eating was under control even with her great cooking thanks to the supplements I am taking..... so happy and so grateful to Meek for bringing this to our attention.

Back to work tomorrow! Hope all is well with my buddies..

So glad to hear the good news about your mom!! You all are a great part of that though. Good for you that you were able to enjoy your mom's cooking without going overboard. That's been my challenge and now its a lot easier. I only ate 16pts yesterday...726 cals!! I was not hungry and it feels good to not have that stuffed, full feeling after every meal LOL. It's definitely working for all of us..so glad, yes...thanks Meek!!

YAY!!!!! Oh wow, Shari that is fantastic!! I am thrilled for all of us too! I still don't really understand how it works, but I never have that empty feeling in my tummy.... No matter how little I eat. LOVE IT!!!!

Now I read on your journal you had a slight jump in weight, and I did too today, but I KNOW without a doubt that it is nothing... I continue to eat under control, and not worry about it. I am excited for the holiday season because now I won't feel so hungry. YES!!!

Are you taking both supplements? I find I am doing great with both, no headaches or BP problems at all..

Happy Monday, Deb. I'm so thrilled that the ptero is working for you too. Don't fret over the slight gain...it's nothing! Just continue to follow your eating plan, and LIVE!! . The weight will eventually come off...and in due time!

Have a great week!

I only eat now due to not wanting to go into starvation mode and don't want to feel 'off'. Like now, I'm not hungry at all but feel a little light-headed so will make myself eat something. Are you still eating just to points? I've cut back on the carbs...it sent me into a tailspin!! So now I'm eating more moderate carbs... I haven't decided if I'm going to continue WW or at least continue paying for it.

Yeah, I am experimenting with my eating too.. I tend to do low carb naturally, but not Atkins low. More like 100 or so a day. I feel best on 50 net, but I am finding myself feeling a little deprived. So I have a few things, then it goes closer to 100 net.

I don't feel well at Atkins level anymore, not sure why. I have a template for the WW plan in my excel folder, so I kind of use that. I won't be paying for the plan anymore, I know what to do.. Plus, this excel program works like the online tracker anyway.

I am really just getting a feel for how much I actually need to eat, and still lose, without going too low, like you say. If I were you, I wouldn't continue paying, you know what to do! But that is just the cheap ME...

HI Julie! Thanks!! Yes, I was a skeptic, but when I saw it was only $15 to order here at Netrition, I decided to give it a try. The thread on the JUDDD forum is what Meek linked for us to read.

I ordered the ptero, and the rev...... whatever it is... and I take both. Most do fine on just the ptero though. I wanted to be sure my appetite was gone... It really works for me. Shari and Meek say it works for them, so what is the harm in trying it? That was my thought.

I also see where some people get nothing from it, so I would not say it is 100% a sure thing, but for ME, it sure makes my tummy feel full all the time!

Hope you have a great day!.. Congrats on dropping some weight eating some carbs!.. YAY!..

How did you get a template for excel? Did you create it? You're right, I know what to do now. It helped when going out to eat or trying different food than my norm but I could really put other use to the money...I signed up for a 3-mth special with no sign-up fee...worth it but I have other options too.

Julie~ I agree with Deb, it's not too expensive and although I knew some said it didn't work, I figure I'd try it since it worked for Deb and Meek. I remember the first day I did get a bit hungry at night but I still ate light. Since then, I can definitely tell a reduction in appetite and not wanting to eat. Especially now, I didn't realize TOM was coming because normally I have PMS really bad and want to eat everything not nailed down!! That hasn't been the case now.

Well I am not that smart!.. haha.. I did a search for WW Excel spreadsheets and it came up. I already had Excel on my work and home computer, so I downloaded it. It is free, and not copyrighted or anything like that. It also has a built in points counter.

I did the same 3 month online plan, and I loved it! I just don't love continuing to pay for it....

Great job on forgetting about TOM... That stuff works!
