Whoa! 15 pounds! Great job, Babe!

15 pounds is great! I'm glad to hear you're finding it easier. I hope to get to that point too with the calorie counting.

Good job... if you feel yourself giving in to temptation just go to the store and look at 60 sticks of butter... that will help.

Babe,

You have some along way so just keep doing what you have been doing and even if the scale is not moving you are making progress. I think you are right about not buying anymore. I have found that when I am being a little bit weak the best thing to do is buy a single serving or a snack pack, when it is gone it is gone! I really hate the fact that I am paying a higher price but, in the long run it is cheaper and I am better off.

Stay out of the cookies!
