Hey Bigjoey!!  I found out that the powdered creamers I had been using before FTS were full of carbs.  I relate.  Heavy whipping cream (read that label for 0 carb, it's out there) and Land of Lakes Moo Moo are great 0 carb replacements.  I prefer Moo Moo by Land of Lakes.  I have one large mug of coffee with 2 Moo Moo every day.  Sam's carries them in a large box of 192 to the box, I didn't think I would be able to use them before the "use by" date, but I'm giving it my best shot LOL.  Here's a link for what they look like.

LOL Cindy, my husband makes the coffee every AM.  I am always asking him how much sweetener did he use, it just always seems I need (want) it sweeter  :o  Did you check out the link on the moo moo's?

I had leg cramps at night during the beginning too. I think it was from not getting enough water. Upped my intake and got a good multivitamin and they settled down. You are rocking this Joey! Congrats on a great week.

You should get yourself a counter for your signature. It helps keep track of what you lost but it also helps you track when and how much you lost. It give you like a graph and you can see all your different check in's the date and it shows your downward spiral. I love it and it helps remind me where I don't want to go too again.

You can make a ticker by clicking on someone else's ticker, then when the new page opens, click on 'create your own ticker' - go from there. It's kind of nifty! :D

You can always flavor your water if it helps to get it down.You can use a splash of soda or crystal light flavorings ;)

Thanks for the tip... Just checking in...doing good so far....still sticking to my goal of getting under 319 by Friday.  The other day went to Village inn for breakfast. Had a ham and cheese omelet,no hash browns of course. First time I had an omelet that had cream cheese in it... I must say it was pretty good.

Very cold this AM... Went out to get a cup of coffee read 3 degrees and that was at 7:00AM..

I really hate the cold!!!!
