    @dmt366, the book is being shipped to my library. I LOVE libraries and would be destitute if I had to pay for all of the books I read. It is good to know that they take patron requests for new books. I appreciate that information. @Sabine_Stroehm, I would love the black bean brownie recipe. Please share.
    Btw, I wound up making several soups last week, as well as some healthy pumpkin muffins. ( I hate pumpkin but even I thought they were good.) Everything was fairly low in calories so I've been able to stay under my daily calorie goal. Now to include some exercise in my day.

    I used this one and eliminated the coffee and added walnuts. http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=244033

    Hi all. I'm sorry I haven't been on much. I'm still dealing with my family stuff. I am going out of town this weekend. And I believe we are planning the service on March 21 so I'm hoping to be back to at least semi-normal after we get most of that planning done this weekend.

    I'm so glad I've go so many interested in this! I'm excited to set up a group and to really focus on helping each other. I've actually been doing really well and lost some weight - woo hoo! I'm still doing the 21 day fix plan, but have modified it to fit my needs according to the information I've been reading on the Metabolic Effect (and I need to order that book too).

    I am in no way pushing for you to purchase the 21 day fix but it has been a great tool for me. I use the 21 day fit tracker app on my phone which has been life changing even more than MFP was. So I think I will continue to use that tool.

    I just wanted to let you know I'm still here and still wanting to get this group going but I just need to get my family stuff behind me.

    Can we take a poll on whether you all would like a Secret Facebook page or do you want to continue on MFP groups?

    I would like a Secret Facebook page. It might be better to keep it small and have some continuity and accountability that a small group affords. I'm glad to hear that your family issues are going to be behind you soon, or do they ever really go away? :-) Take care of yourself.
    I did get the ME book from the library, but I spent yesterday taking full advantage of Fat Tuesday and haven't looked at it yet. Maybe today.
    Sabine_Stroehm, thanks for the recipe. I'm looking forward to trying it soon.

    Hi everyone! I hope all is well. Have any of you known any one that has done this ME Diet Plan? I would like to know how they made out. Hi jchrisman717 I'm glad to hear that you are losing with the 21 day fix plan.

    Hi all! I am back from my weekend and now I have nothing going on until the end of March so I'm going to get this group up and running.

    I did however have a little mishap on Thursday - slipped on some ice and really messed up my pinky finger and my knee so I have some mending to do. Even better time to get the nutrition part down!

    We can do both a FB page and a group here if you all like. You all just let me know what you want.

    If your on FB, find me and send me a friend request. My name is Jawona Carpenter and my email is [email protected]

    Have any of you got the book yet?

    Also, send me a friend request here if you haven't done that yet. So looking forward to getting back I shape with some one on one help from you all.

    Nope - still getting it all set up. Find me on FB and send me a friend request. After I accept it could you then send me an email with your username from MFP. I've had several friend requests that I am assuming are you guys but your names are different - lol.

    If you are interested in joining the FB Group - I think this link will work - if not let me know. I did make it secret so you might have to add me as a friend and then I can add you. You can feel free to unfriend me after that - I understand some people are more private. If you have already friended me and I haven't added you to the group - send me a message on FB so I can add you.

    I thought it might because it is a secret group I think I have to be friends with you and then add you. I think I just added you smilebhappy.

    This would be my preference. We have a "policy" in our house that our Facebook friends are only people we know "in real life". So, if we get a group here, or even just a thread in this group, count me in. Otherwise, check back from time to time and tell me how great you're all doing!

    Hi I posted some questions similar to this last week before I saw this thread. I'm interested in joining as well, but like Sabine said, unless we get a group here, I won't be joining the FB page. :-( Please check back from time to time if you can.

    This is very interesting to me. I had a partial hysto last May, and after Christmas, the belly fat packed on around the middle. I didn't understand what was going on. I'm very anxious to try this and to see how everyone else is doing!!! Great info! :-)
