The problem is that now I don't have any jeans that fit. And, my "sweet tooth" doesn't bother me, but the tooth I broke eating popped wild rice does...
Well said!

When I stopped looking at food as the enemy, when I stopped severe restriction, that's when it became much easier. Slow gradual changes make the most sense. For me this approach works. I still eat the bad stuff once in a while, but when you make a habit of not eating much of certain things (like sugar) you crave them much less.

I don't know if I'll ever get to the point of eliminating sugar, but getting it under control works best for me.

Nice job!! I am getting there as well. Not as quickly as I would like, but just getting rid of all the Christmas chocolate helped.

Great news, SB and PF! Congratulations.

I unfortunately have gained 2 pounds but I believe that to be because I have been eating more carbs trying to get rid of my cold symptoms. Now I am getting back to normal so should lose them rather quickly - specially since you have both inspired me!

I was back in the pool today for the first time since last saturday & it felt so wonderful. My second swimming lesson was tonight. I absolutely love it. Need to continue to practice but it's all starting to make sense. Mom in the hospital all week. They plan to discharge her tomorrow, very crowded there. She is still in alot of pain but they say medicare doesn't pay just because you are in pain or have enough strength. I am so discusted with them!

It's true about Medicare, pain or ability to take care of yourself at home does not count.
