    Hey Everyone,

    Sorry I've been MIA for a couple days. Good news is my healthy habits are all still in check and I've been steadily losing since my last weigh in day (hope it continues and shows up at my next weigh in)

    @Nature003Life
    I totally agree, this group has helped my accountability a lot…and my motivation. (Speaks to my competitive nature)

    @PatriceFitnessPal
    Thank you for sharing the details of your journey…very inspirational. I’ve been at it for a year now…my longest stretch of healthy habits ever! I have a lot to lose, but I am really focused on the habit building/healthy lifestyle building this time. I know that with patience and consistency I will get to a healthy BMI someday.

    Welcome to all of our new team members!

    Angela

    Folks:
    I would like to take August off - I am not sure what is going on, but I keep have these serious hunger issues which is freaking me out. I would wake up in the mornings extremely hungry.
    I am going to take August to try and sort this out and get my protein in check
    I am a non meat/chicken/seafood/eggs/soy eater - also found out that legumes gives me serious indigestion, but plan to bring back into my diet very slowly as I really need to up my protein intake

    Got ya moved. Please let us know what works for you. This has happened to me before and it thru me off track bad!!! I like your approach.

    Thanks ladies
    I am feeling a lot better than I was the last couple of weeks - it was hell. I will be restarting exercising today - just the elliptical to do something
    I have also started drinking premier protein @30 grams of protein, have made a huge difference to my well being
    They are on sale at Costco until August 28th@$7.00 off, so I will be stocking up
    Normally, I have the chocolate, but Just tried the caramel this morning with my cereal and I really liked it.
    I had one @160 calories add in some cashew butter@160 and 30 grams of high fiber cereal and I am still under 500 for breakfast which kept me full for a good while. My plan is to have 2 protein shakes a day and then a large dinner with fish, brown or quinoa and lots of vegetables
    To all those ladies with the high losses - well done
    To all those not moving, Rome was not built in a day, the weight did not come overnight, even though sometimes it feels like it

    I would be careful w/Premier proteins lots of sugar & hidden sugars - a certified nutritionist that I am working with has said that those are high in sugars

    There is only 1 gram of sugar in the ones I am drinking - cannot drink things that are too sweet

    Hey captains, can I come back to the team or is it too late for this month? I am coming crawling back with my tail between my legs having gained EVERYTHING BACK. I need to get back on track and have accountability. Can I rejoin, pretty please?

    Hi there! I'll have to defer to @Beka3695 for this. I'm not sure what the "rules" are. Would be great to have you back though!

    What’s everyone planning for the weekend?

    I’m visiting a friend for her very belated graduation party, and otherwise focusing on resting and trying to catch up with household chores. You know you’re tired when ”do two rounds of laundry between naps” feels like a major goal.
