Hi Joey! :)

Since no two of us are alike, weekly weight loss averages will vary from week to week and from person to person.
Therefore, "averages" may or may not apply to you.

Also remember that, whether we like it or not, our bodies have their own clocks and calendars.
So if your following the FTS rules and find yourself losing at a rate less than expected, don't worry.
Part of your journey is learning about how your body reacts to what you eat.

As you proceed through your FTS journey, it's OK to adjust your goals to be realistic with how your body loses.
Since you are within 1 pound of reaching your mini-goal, you did GREAT! :)

Congratulations!!! :) :) :) :) :)
What you do today is what matters!

Hey jen1975- I like to ride to...when I can... have a 05 Honda VTX 1300R   would like a trike !!!

We have an 02 Harley ElectraGlide Standard.  The hubby would love to get an Ultra Classic.  I'm afraid soon we may have to go with a trike; he has rheumatoid arthritis and he's knees are always the worst.  He hasn't reached the point of accepting that just yet though!  I believe TooSweet rides too... I think they went to Sturgis this past summer.

If you're going to lose weight and keep it off, make sure you set realistic goals.  Healthy weight loss is 1-2lbs per week; some people will lose more than that, some less.  I'm always just happy if my numbers keep going down, however little at a time it is.

  I know what you mean Jen  :-\  I would love to not have to ride on the back but I don't think I could handle one myself with my arthritis  :'(  I think a trike would be a blast though.  We have a 08 Road King at the moment.  Hubs sure would love to have a new one under the tree this year  8)  Not sure Santa is that fat in the wallet  ;)

Keep up the good work Joey you are doing great!  :)

Confession:

Well I mess up today...Went to work this AM and had a donut for Breakfast.... There were three boxes full.

For lunch I just had 2 oz of cheese and some peanuts ...

For dinner I had the wife pick on were she wanted to go... We had Chinese..  I keep it simple
to Beef and mushroom.....but had a few pieces of fudge..

I know I will see it in the morning on the scale, hopefully not much...

I fell of the horse, but getting back up and riding again.

Goal for next week weight in :  318 lbs



Well my goal for this week was 318 lbs:  I weighed in at 319.6 Lbs ( at least I got under 320 lbs).
Had a few bumps on the road this week eating outside the box.
I am getting better in controlling my sweet cravings especially during the evening. I just have a cup of hot diet chocolate cocoa( I find the one with the lowest carb content ) and it does the job.

Joey I was a HUGE sweets addict. I wanted sweets everyday, all the time. If you really want to rock this you need to stay completely away from all carbs. Try two weeks with no SF sweets or anything and be completely faithful to the FTS plan. At the end of the two weeks you won't crave a thing. I can now sit a table full of sugary fun stuff and it doesn't bother me at all, you will be able too also!!

sherripie is correct .Get through two weeks ,no sweets (real sugar)and you will lose that craving.After that  if you do want something thats what the Bakery Book is for.Don't deprive yourself or you won't suceed. ;)

If you can get through this first little bit of resisting the cravings, you will accomplish two things: you will strengthen your will power and be proud of yourself AND you will get past the issue of having cravings.  I used to love sweets, but now I find I dn't even crave the SF replacements.   It gives a person a sense of control and power to not give in to one's previous old habits that were destructive.

I too agree, owensmath! :)

I had a HUGE "sweet tooth" before FTS.
But now, I have an urge for something sweet only occasionally.
What you do today is what matters!
