First day of FTS
« on: February 24, 2013, 10:38:59 PM »
Well today my family started eating the FTS way. My husband was surprised how good dinner was when I made the shepards pie and used cauliflower in place of potatoes. He was so amazed. I have over 100 pounds to lose so hoping this time I have found something I can stick to.

Welcome cheaton - The variety of food will amaze you.  You will find substitutes for almost everything.  The one minute muffin the most versatile and quickest.  My favourite  is the snickerdoodles (which I actually call umpadoodles).  These taste like normal biscuits/cookies.  I make a batch, freeze half (or more) and use them as I need/want.  I offer to friends and they love them.  I'm one of those people that need a little something with my coffee.

I look forward to reading your posts and seeing your progress.  Have fun.

Welcome to the forum ceheaton!   :D  How wonderful your family is joining you on this journey!  That should make things a bit easier to not be tempted by what others in the house are eating.  Come in the forum often...I look forward to reading your posts  :)

Welcome to FTS! I'm new at this, too, and so far I'm really enjoying it. If you stick to the plan, you will lose weight, if you don't, you won't. It's as simple as that. I know you can do it! You and your family will feel so much better!

Best of luck
Failure can be measured by the steps we don't take.

Welcome to our family of sugarholics ceheaton! Yep, that's what we ALL are, recovering sugarholics  :o Your challenge will be the next 14 days. Stick with it and break that addiction, after that it will be a breeze  ;) Remember to clean out all those high carb foods from your home so you have nothing in front of you to tempt you. Also be sure to make several of our snack trays and have them at eye level in the fridge. Visit and post often!
