    Speaking of comfort, last night we ate one of the three “Hello Fresh” meals I bought from a co-worker who couldn’t keep up with his regular shipment. The food is REALLY good. Cost is high and so are the calories.

    I love these! My husband and I use meal kits quite often. In terms of the calories, they have lots that are lower calorie if you seek them out (I realize you didn't do the ordering...) Since the food is so darn good, my husband and I basically pick the meals that are lowest calorie to make life easier on us.

    I will check it out further. Very tasty!

    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!

    Thanks @quiltingjaine for another round.

    Hi, I’m Debbie.

    I am 59 yr old, 5' 6" female from Missouri.
    OSW 213.4 (July 2012)

    SW: 208.6
    RG: 205
    2/6 207.8 I’m still doing the low impact workout each morning, 35/37. My joints do feel better when I exercise.
    2/7 207.0 Very happy to finally be heading back to where I was after traveling last weekend. It took a whole week to get rid of two travel days of poor eating. Now to keep my stress and emotional eating in control.
    2/8 206.8 good day, and another workout.
    2/9 205.8 not sure the scale is right on that one.
    2/10 206.4 Continuing my workouts, 39/41. First day of not feeling much hip joint pain, a big nsv for me.
    2/11 206.6
    2/12 206.6
    2/13 207.2 Must be the salty food yesterday. Crackers and cheese with the chili. Workout #42/44.
    2/14 206.6 Well back where I was. I had a sub sandwich splurge yesterday and thought it might be a problem today but I did extra walking yesterday and I guess the two balanced out. Another workout this morning.
    2/15 206.2 Better
