I feel as if this really is a life change for me since I have now done this for six months. I don't feel deprived at all any more. You are right, I feel so much better now. I got rid of all of my size 20 pants, and I am wearing 18s and 16s. I wore some 18s today, and they are so big on me that I need to start getting rid of 18s too!

It is a nice feeling, isn't it? Like you, I don't feel deprived at all.

I gave all my size 14s to a friend who has been dropping sizes--she's on the fence between 16 and 14, but doesn't want to stop there (and who can afford a new wardrobe each size???). Giving her those clothes has given her incentive to continue (not to mention, she has watched me shrink over the last year). Those giant safety pins come in handy when you are dropping sizes but not quite the next size...

Hi Charlie and Welcome to this thread.

The following is a site for Jewish recipes and suggestions of staying within the Dietary Laws of Kosher.

Kosher Recipe Index - All Kosher Recipes

Take a look. And not at the sweets! I know you.

I used the safety pins on a sun dress the other day.

Congrats on a job well done to you and also CWS and anyone else who has successfully lost weight. I can get to the point that my tight pants are no longer tight, but not enough to go down to the next size. I am still working on it!

Wow, this is an old thread. I'm glad to see it open though, lol. I think I would like to reread everything myself.
Have lost 13 lbs, thanks to my new found appetite control and energy!!
I have 47 more to go :)
Nice job Chopper!!
