    I have a healthy snack to add: I bought apple sauce, the kind that has no sugar in it and it has such little calories. It is a great snack when your craving something sweet. I also eat handfuls of almonds.

    And for those girls that are eating oatmeal, I add some flaxseed to mine. It really helps boost your metabolism. I'm also drinking green tea, which is also supposed to help your metabolism.

    Thanks for the tip about flaxseed. I am going to add it to my shopping list right now.

      Betsy McD's salads are actually horrible for you! A salad from there will run your body in the area of 510 calories and 31 grams of fat. Ouch! Might as well eat a Quarter Pounder with cheese, which will give you 510 calories and 25 grams of fat. I'm telling you McD's is not healthy anyway you slice it. And don't fall for the yogurt parfait (sp?) either, they are just as unhealthy!

      Here is what I plan to do:

      When I get invited out to dinner I'm going to eat a little bit before I go so I won't be starving when I get there. I plan to fill up on steamed veggies. Also, if you add a tbs of vinegar to your food it will kill your appetite (Heidi Klum does this before she goes out to dinner). I am going to check out menus before I go out so I can have planned what I want to eat. For some reason I feel that if I have a plan, I will be more likely to stick to my goal!

        You really shouldn't weigh yourself yet. We are only on day 3! If you start weighing yourself it is going to drive you crazy and you will be more likely to give up if you don't see the numbers budging. Just keep stick to it and I promise you that you will see results.

          Yari what that little Stephanie girl said to your future step-daughter is so RUDE! Uggh why don't parents teach their children manners anymore?

          If it makes you feel any better my FI's barber asked him if I had the baby yet.

          Great tip G! I wonder why vinegar is so magical? I'm going to try this as I love vinegar. I wonder if lemon juice works too. I put lemon on everything I can think of (water, steamed veggies, seafood, salads)

            ok girls - it is Friday!

            just remember that one meal will not ruin your long term goals BUT we just started this and it will feel better to see LB's lost on the scale Wed than eating something you know doesn't help achieve your goals.

            also - here is a tip i picked up from someone else ...

            "if you have already tasted / eaten a food before and you indulge in it just to indulge, (ex. lasagna) you are being a glutton - ask yourself why you are allowing yourself to make the wrong choices? you know what it tastes like, there are no surprised in the bag of chips, just fatty calories!"

            and this is about LONG TERM LIFESTYLE change, not a Diet or a quick fix and changing habits is uncomfortable and takes work.

            GOOD LUCK THIS WEEKEND - YOU CAN DO IT!

              Girls we have to stay strong this weekend! It is so easy to fall off and revert to bad habits when we go out to bars, restaurants, parties, etc. Let's stay focused. I think if I go out and feel tempted I am going to call my buddy to talk me out of it. It will be like a sponsor for, AA excpet for food b/c let's face it, I am addicted to food!
