For a week I sat on the same weight, some days loosing and gaining the same 2pounds all week long. Elimination continued to be a problem. What a cycle. The more I tried to move my bowels, the more distended and bloated and gassed I felt. In golf when you are struggling, you go back to your basics. That’s what I did, went back to the beginning. So appreciate the messages this group adds. Just the incentive sometimes we need. I also examined my “WHY”, goals and truths. Switched my negative disappointment to positive. This last week was temporary, it wasn’t final. I can’t believe we have only a short time left. This morning was a break thru. Total loss of 23#. That is exciting! I’m not ready for maintenance. I fear maintenance and yet at same time I look forward to eating other foods. So many times in the past when did maintenance I couldn’t go back to loosing phase. This will be a time we will really need each other. Have a fabulous day and remember YOU are a Queen!
