    I am noticing a lot of us love our coffee! My work place no longer uses our large coffee pots, so I am not drinking coffee all day. This is what I make instead of a second or third coffee:

    I just prep it at home and take it in a travel mug that lasts me until lunch.

    Looks interesting! Can it just be prepared with water alone?

    Yes! It's so finely ground, it's instant.

    THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
    REMINDERS One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!

    Up a little this week, but I’m not upset or stressed about it. I have changed my diet to include more protein and increased my exercise. I’m assuming the weight/my body will readjust itself. 😊

    This goes out to those of us who have a LOT of weight to lose and struggling with diet plans that work best. I know when I focus on reducing calories the carbs go up and I don't lose as much, or at least not fast enough. If I cut out the carbs I tend to have bingeing issues because I feel deprived. I just need to learn to quit just eating because I want to and.,,. Eat like I love myself.
    ***

    Quote from Corinne Crabtree who lost 100lbs and has kept it off over 13 years;

    Listen. There are zero shortcuts in weight loss.
    Trust me. If there was truly a way to shortcut weight loss, either me or Oprah would share ... it.
    The problem with trying every shortcut out there is simple. They don't work, and then you waste time, money and energy before being left with what you should have done in the first place.
    Start working.
    You will have to learn how to eat healthier (not perfectly).
    At times, you will have to eat less than you want.
    You will have to say no to things you want badly in the moment.
    That's what weight loss is about. It's about learning how to BE with food. It's not about figuring out some quick gimmick or scheme. Those don't help you when all you WANT to do is eat something.
    Nothing takes the want away except this: learning how to say no when you want something and realizing that you won't die or get pregnant when you do.
    Learn to quit just eating because you want to, and at least half of weight loss is solved. I promise. That's how I did it.
