    Echo that. Non-food rewards really help you make your small goals. I set a work out goal and when I reached it, I got a massage. It really helped my now aching muscles!

    And I had to go shopping, because there's only so much a belt can do to hold your pants up!

      Me too! Its really encouraging! Clothes are getting baggier and baggier...not quite there yet though so Im putting off the new purchases so that I don't waste $$$ on "in between" clothes.

        My trick is to not over do it and to not waste calories on things that aren't worth it. There's nothing worse than spending some of your calories on mediocre food.
        NO ME TOO!! I try to explain this to FI all the time- I will send something back if I'm 'cheating' and it's not exactly how I want it. I'm wasting those calories dammit, and I want my food how I ordered it! haha

        I know it is hard- but like it has been said- you have already made great progress. It is so hard to see the scale move so slowly week by week- but when you make those small goals- it's just that much sweeter along the way! We are all here for encouragement and support- I didn't really have any of that the first 20 lbs lost- and it took me a very long time! Chin up- you are a gorgeous woman- and it's obvious that your FI thinks the same no matter what that number is (even though I know that the weight loss is to make you feel better!)
        Well said, nsbride! I also find it helps to have a target outfit - as you start to lose weight, it starts looking better and it makes you want to work harder to get into it.
        Oh helllllllll yes. I have so many of those!! Fitting into them slowly is fantastic.

                  Please do join us! The official deadline for the competing category was yesterday, but you can still participate. Send me your pictures and I can track your progress in the non-competing group (which I am in too!). It's pretty much the same thing. The only difference is that the winner of the BL gets a BL season 9 avatar... which I still need to figure out how to make, lol.

                      I didn't survive the weekend's temptations. We had birthday celebration yesterday and had my traditional cake-then brought it home-aaahhhhh! My Dad is coming over today-I hope he eats the rest-LOL.
