Week Three and Hanging On

Hi Everyone,

Well it has been two weeks and the start of week three for me in this journey. So far I have managed to loose 11.6lbs, which I am really telling you so I can be accountable. I have been down the road of dieting many times before and usually at a 20lb loss, I give up....

Can anyone here tell me why it is when people start to notice the weight loss and compliment me that I give up....
Do any of you have that same phenonmenon. It is like I just start to feel good and then poof I quit... Just doesn't make any sense to me.

So this time as I am getting rid of layers of myself, I am going to try to change the self talk into the positive stuff. I can do this. I don't need to quit at 20 lbs. Even if it is tough which it will be I can still carry on one day at a time.

I am glad to be a part of this blog group as an extra support as I go for better health.

I found a neat recipe on one of the blogs linked to this. They were talking about egg muffins. This is really quiche without the crust made in those silicone muffin cups. I tried it out. Works really good, handy to have ahead for breakfasts. You can freeze them too. It is a southbeach diet recipe.

If you have any favorite healthy recipes or ideas please pass along. I would appreiate fresh ideas.

Have a great week.

Shan and Belinda how are those arms now? Feeling the benefits? I applaud you on....

Libby, you are amazing! Good for you. Yahoo for those pounds.

I know exactly what you mean about that invisible barrier; a ceiling of sorts. I have had those myself. I'm going to do some thinking about why that is.

As for my arm--I stopped--but I'm going to start again. I want to be strong.

hey Libby

I think you are the most beautiful amazing person I have ever met. You are full of Gods love and grace and it radiates through you. You have always been an amazing role model for me, no matter what you look like or how you feel like you look it is never as bad as it seems. Dont let numbers get you down. Be strong and face this head on. I dont usually buy into this sort of thing but I watched these documentaries and they really helped
