Hello all

Postby LizC or Liz » January 13th, 2008, 7:17 pm

So happy I found this site . I am sure I am driving my husband crazy with diet chat. Now I can do it here.

I have alot to lose but I put a 100 goal for now I will most likely add 30 more after I get there.

I have tried Medifast before and it works but I only stayed on it a short while. I plan to achieve my goal this time !!!!

I just achieved a major goal at work, I'm in sales for a large company and I made our "Leaders Club" which is the top small percentage of the sales force. The company is sending my husband and I to Atlantis in the Bahamas. So exciting !!!

Anyway if I can do that I can lose weight too!!!

12 days 13 lbs!!!

Postby Liz » January 19th, 2008, 8:16 am

Ok I am excited 12 days and 13 lbs !!

The tough part will be Sunday night. I rented a Greek Restaurant for my Dad's 75th Birthday. I invited 70 people and I have 20 friends and family flying in fromallover and staying with me.

I am servingprime rib and plan to have a small portion and no dessert but I will have the greek salad, I will limit feta cheese that goes inmy mouth.

Here is my real problem I love spinkopata(sp) you know the feta and spinashI LOVE THIS and thank god we are italian and not greek.How bad is it if I have a small piece or two????

I've been so good.

Hiya Liz, Welcome aboard.

Just having that little piece of spanikopita can kick you out of ketosis. I know it is very hard. Just think about the 13#'s you lost. Also another suggestion the minute after your meal. Place a piece of gum in your mouth peppermint/cinnamon. OF course sugarfree. Desserts are my weakness (well all foods are my weakness) but the trick I learned is right after dinner GUM GUM GUM. Hope you have a great time.

Welcome to our group!!
The forum members will help you a great deal. :D The Bahamas Whooo Hooo.... I think I'd put a picture of where you're going right where it is very visible for you .... in the kitchen perhaps That way when you're tempted to have just a "little snack"... you'll see and remember you want to be nice and "thinny" for the Bahamas.

Hey, Liz ~

We wanna know how you are doing now that the :partytime: party's over...your Dad and all the relatives must have had a great time.

:secret: If you have spanakopita or baklavah crumbs on your chinny chin chin, wipe 'em off and get back here!

I am so :yay: happy for you to have such a nice prize to look forward to this year. It's neat that others have observed your leadership skills and you are earning your just desserts with a :heart: special run-away time with the hubster.
Nothing tastes as good as thin feels...
