thank you rena, i appreciate that.

how long have you been on program to lose the weight you've lost?

Both my husband and I started FTS on October 1, 2010, so we're in our 6th month now.

Good luck, Denise!

I really like the chocolate peanut butter Atkins bars, but I've found they're probably stalling me, too. I'm trying to eat them only occasionally and see how that works out. But somedays, I just need something like that. Good luck, again.

Those atkins bars are deadly good but stall me completely everytime I eat one. I'm not sure how on atkins they can eat those and loose weight. If you need chocolate try the SF mouse or the Low Carb Breyers fudge bars. OMG those fudge bars are addicting!!

I love the low-carb fudge bars. I think they're 3 carbs. They also have a chocolate coated ice cream bar that's 5 carbs.

Oh yeah ... I know all about the desserts!   ::)

The bars I've been eating range from 2-3 net carbs.

i cannot use the scale,probably nightmares from weight watchers, so now i go by size. when i reach goal which is size 8, then maybe i will use a scale, but i was addicted to the scale for 25yrs, forget that for now. good luck.

I agree Skinny 1000%!!!i have to stay away from the scale I have a obsessive personality.I would be depressed for days if I gained a pound!My dad said "baby you don't know when your pants are getting tight?"Now I go by size.I am very happy and can maintain a 8-10 without much effort.If my pants get tight i back down the carbs.We went to San Francisco and came home with tight pants! Darn sourdough!!So I am watching everything that goes in my mouth! :D :D :D

The scale can be your worst enemy if you give it the power to control how you feel about your progress.

It's like the Dow Jones Industrial Average (i.e. numeric stock market indicator).
It can look quite good even with record foreclosure rates and unemployment rates of over 9%.

Like the number on the scale, that number is only ONE indicator of condition.
Don't allow either one to mislead you!
What you do today is what matters!
