    I'm recommitting to my health today, and one thing that worked well for me was planning to split my calories into 3 meals and 1-2 snacks.

    I'm going to try to update this thread daily so that I remember to capture the positives. I invite all of you to do the same.
    I tried optifast but just couldn't do it Now i'm following what they sugest when finished meals 3 a day at 300 calories. Plus two 150 calorie snacks. I'm on my third day and finding it hard to get all my calories. Good luck to you.

    Steel-cut oatmeal made with whole milk, honey, and cardamom, with a side of cantaloupe, for breakfast. (about 540 cals)
    Have you ever tried refrigerator oats oatmeal with yogurt and I add blueberries and make a bunch and if I don't know what to have for a snack I have that. It's good.

    Feeling my jeans get a good bit looser all of a sudden, even if the scale is still showing a plateau. That comforts me. I'll see it on the scale in good time.

    New to this topic... But the inspiration from all of you is amazing! I'm not sure what will work for me today since I'm just getting started, but three times in the past week I've been able to run (relative term ;):p:D ) a slow mile without walking. My weight loss has slowed dramatically in the past month and I know it's my own doing. So, those three miles (plus the additionally walked ones) are as good motivation as anything else to keep me on track. :)

    I did some food prep yesterday which will make it pretty much effortless to stay on plan with my meals this week. I don’t do the whole pre-portioned thing but I’ve prepared the main component to be reheated and then just doing a quick salad and rice when it’s time to eat.

    Last night I prepped my lunches for the week. Not having lunch is a big thing for me since my job does't allow for me to leave (only one working on site right now :| So I usually end up ordering some sort of takeout and I would rather not do that even if it so called healthy. I don't know how they are preparing it. So meal prepping is something that works for me.
