    Yes, yes, and yes, a good day.

    Keith, I second what Suzi says, dill pickles have nearly no calories and can dampen the hunger. Hang in here with us and you will be fine!

    Getting back on track after the long weekend. Cycled for 73min. and toying with the idea of IF to interrupt evening snacking while cleaning up leftovers and packing lunches.

    Yes for all three. I've lost 7 pounds so far. Cravings are getting a little worse but I'm glad I've stuck with it so far. Thanks all!

    Hey @keith250in2021
    Awesome!

    What approaches are you taking with the cravings?

    Molly...so far I've been eating the most comparable food I can to what I'm craving that is still within my diet. My next move is to try and go to bed earlier as currently I like to stay up late which is when I have the greatest cravings. Today has been much better than yesterday. Thanks!

    A trick I learned in WW was to eat a dill/sour pickle when cravings got to be too much. Something about the vinegar wipes the mouth cravimg away. Congratulations on your loss. It's a great motivator.

    Suzi...excellent tip. I will definitely try that...and I love pickles. Thanks!

    Thanks for the encouragement, Rob. I'm not planning on going anywhere. Have to get this weight off!

    Great plans!

    Cravings: took me awhile to realize mine were triggered by SUGAR which I knew, SALT which I didn’t know and FAT. I then realized when a food had one of these, I could resist it. When it had two, I had difficulty, and finally decided it wasn’t worth resisting the calls from the pantry. If it had all 3, I called them a Triple Threat - and decided- for me (lifelong obese with two obese parents) I decided that I would not have them in our home. I know others who have made the opposite decision.

    I’m doing this for my Health. I’m doing everything I can to insure my maintenance success. And everything I can do to make it EASY.

    I read recently that obesity is a “chronic recurring disease” so I’m trying to stack the odds in my favor.

    For most of my weight loss journey I stayed upstairs after dinner (to reduce temptation)
    I’d drink water & brought up an electric kettle for tea. My mantra: “If you stay upstairs, you will lose the weight.”

    After being in maintenance for awhile & because of COVID, I ended up being right next to kitchen now. AND I learned how to manage it - slowly but surely.

    Baby Steps!
