So I am heading out to a get together this evening and I am really hoping that I can resist the temptation to eat what I know will be in front of me.  Staying away from alcohol has never been an issue for me because I only really like wine and I'm not a big drinker so that I can handle.  Hoping to stay strong as this is the first "gathering" I have been to aside from a dinner etc.  I'm going to eat before I head out so I'll keep my fingers crossed!  Wish me luck and determination!  

This has not been the greatest week.  I had 2 really great weeks but this week has been tough, my body has not be cooperating with me and on Wednesday I hadn't gained anything but I hadn't lost either!  Things seem to be "moving" again if you know what I mean and I hope that was what stalled the weight loss.  Hoping to be back on track come Monday's weigh in.... thanks for listening! :)

Good luck, Bubba! You'll do just fine. :)

Best of luck, Bubba! I'm sure you'll do well. :)

My weight loss has been the same as yours. It seems like we started around the same time. My first two weeks went great, and this third week I only lost a little on Wednesday and then had a 1 lb gain on Friday. Hopefully Monday will be better for both of us! :)

Stick with you, it will be worth it! I've made it thru my first month, and I'm happy I stuck with it. For some reason -this diet gives you willpower :)

Some weeks are just like that and yes it's frustrating and then the scale drops and you are glad you made the commitment to stay strict.

Thanks so much for all the encouragement everyone!!!  I'm home and I stuck with it, took my allowed drink with me and there was no pressure to eat and to my surprise, no desire to eat! I finally have the willpower I knew I had! Night everyone.
