Hi Carla!

Hang in there and give yourself a break! None of us got overweight in 8 days. Take one small step and make one small change each day. Before you know it you will be running.

Keep the faith!

Great job but watch out for that scale! I threw mine away this weekend. I measure my success by the way my clothes are feeling and the amount of energy I have.

I'm going to purchase a divided plate for dinner. I think it will help me control the potato/french frie/rice portion. You would not believe how many fries you can pile onto eachother before they fall over. Mashed potatoes too :P

I have not felt hunger pains in years! Never gave myself the chance to get hungery.
