So liquid splenda is ok? I saw a post that it has hidden carbs.

Product Reviews / MiO water enhancer-is it for real?
« on: April 18, 2012, 10:03:25 AM »
I just bought a MiO water enhancer-Strawberry watermelon. I like plain water on most days, but some days I just need a little something else. I am recommitting myself to the FTS lifestyle and want to be sure that this delicious water enhancer is as good as it seems. The flavor boost it provides is fabulous! but I am concerned about the sweetness it provides. Can anyone shed some factual light on this product?

Good morning FTS forum friends! I stepped away from FTS for the last 6-7 months, thinking and telling myself it was just too difficult to keep up with the lifestyle changes. On occasion, I would peek back in, seeing what others were posting, thinking to myself again, its just not for me. Too hard to work around all the circumstances of my life. I need the easily accomplished "diet'. Well.... in the last 6 months( or so) I have gained almost ALL of the weigh back and  I have NO energy. 
Last week, I  attended a work related conference. Pictures of me were being taken frequently and then shared with me. I  looked at them, saying inside "Who IS that?? That CANNOT be me!!", but it was and it is! I am that overweight woman in all of those pictures. Seeing the proof right in front of my eyes helped OPEN my eyes. I was able to compare those pictures with ones taken during my earlier FTS lifestyle. The difference was astonishing. Even though the actual number of pounds lost was not my final number, the inches were distinctly noticeable. Of course this made me rethink where I am and what I can do about it. You know what they say about hindsight??? Well, immediate thoughts of FTS filled my head. I began to really focus on what changes I had made and the effect they had had. Only did the occasional thought of "it was too difficult" come to me. Mostly, I recalled how simple it was to avoid eating in  my old style and how with planned  preparations (having the right kind of foods on my shopping list, pre-making a few items for quick grab meals, etc) I was able to lose weight but I also recalled how phenomenal it felt being successful in  the FTS lifestyle. I can say in all honesty that the ONLY program I have ever seen results such as those I was experiencing , was through the FTS lifestyle. I have tried many methods in my lifetime. Not one of them ever made me feel like I was accomplishing my goals!
So , I 'm back! I'm back on the FTS lifestyle. I'm back on the forum. I'm back to becoming the person I know I can be!

My heart aches along side yours. I, too, have considered myself a failure. All of our FTS supporters have posted positive uplifting and factual posts that not only help you but help me in my quest to be sugar free. The promise I keep ever in front of me is that Tomorrow is a NEW day. A day in which I can be a success. My faith tells me not to worry about things in life and that through God grace will be given. I hope these words offer you a measure of comfort and support!

2 Corinthians 9:8
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything; you may have an abundance for every good deed;

 ??? ??? I'm so mad! I made these last night in preparation for my lunch this week. They looked so delicious. My mouth was watering, but I restrained myself because I wasn't hungry, just wanted to sample cause I was "cooking" (you know?? or is this just me???) . Woke up this morning  to discover that they were GONE!. My 8 year daughter says to me, "Well, Daddy must have eaten them!"(cause that is his very bad habit..eating when everyone else is in bed)Then come to find out....he THREW them out! His explanation was that they looked green and he thought they were moldy!!! UGHHHHHHH
But i will not give up. i will make them again...and when I do.... well, a very LARGE note will be attached...DO NOT THROW AWAY!
 :P  :D :P :D

Can't wait to try this recipe. Sound very good..although i think i might leave out the sweetener since i don't have the maple extract and will most likely use the SF maple syrup.

 ;D ;D ;D I am so loving this lifestyle! Pancakes on Sunday mornings was a family ritual that I never thought I would enjoy again! So very glad I found FTS and this forum! Thank you for the cheers!  20 pounds gone feels AWESOME! Sometimes, when I feel as though I am not making progress, I log on here an see my tracker and let it sink in...20 pounds GONE FOREVER! and you are all i get to eat pancakes!  ;D :D ;D

THANKS! I have been posting as often as I can! I am looking forward to owning my own copy and am super excited that I waited long enough to get the revised version with all the extras! (I had borrowed the original form the library as long as I could and had to return it :-[ )
 I look forward to earning the cookbook! :)

Well, other than me overcooking one... I was able to make two nice sized pancakes and they were scrumptious! Another FTS success! ;D
