Congrats Ladies!
We're on to Phase Two, making us one phase closer to living our Best Lives. Here's a run-down of our goals for this stage!

Time Frame
A minimum of four weeks. At the end of this phase, you should be within 20lbs of goal weight or at your goal weight - ready to move on to maintenance!

Weigh In
The first day of this phase, then again once a week

Significant and consistent weight loss brought by understanding and controlling your hunger and making a few dietary changes.

* Build on the changes you made in Phase One
* Increase your activity level at least one level (optional)
* Understand the physical nature of your hunger
* Understand the emotional reasons for your hunger
* Use the hunger scale
* Eat reasonable portions
* Remove six empty or problem foods from your diet.
(soda, foods that contain trans fats, fried foods, white bread, regular pasta, and high-fat dairy products)

Let's do this ladies! We owe it to ourselves to be living our Best Life EVER =) I'm really excited by the progress we've all made, and I can't wait to see the lbs dropping off of each of us. We've got a lot of hurdels in this phase, so don't forget to start Discussions and check in on the wall!

Me too Renee!
So far so good on my end. Eating late at night will be the toughest part for me. As for the scale? it's IN THE TRASH =)

These next two weeks are going to be tough--the state tests are over, so there will be the stress of having to keep 140 kids motivated and out of trouble. I'm determined to prioritize my health, though, and be healthy instead of number-fixated. So my scale is waaay up high in the back of the closet.

Welcome Kristine! =) I decided to pick up a multivitamin for Women. I used to take Fish Oil, but it made my stomach weird.

Welcome Kristine and Kris!

I have a multi for women that I'm going to use just until I find something better. I got the 'get on the scale' feeling this morning and then remembered it wasn't there anymore. I actually felt relieved! Now its breakfast and then off to work! I'll blog more later :)

Have a great day!

Hi all. EmilyRose, I also tried taking fish oil but had issues with it. Glad to know it wasn't just me. :)

Hey y'all--had to get on the scale this morning. Between the end of year, the renovations on the apt (half a month and counting for a stupid washer/dryer), and a few days of insomnia I found myself starting to panic that my habits were slipping and I'd be looking at some huge increase in 20 days time. Even so, going from a twice-a-day check to once in about a week is definitely an improvement. And the number reassured me of what my jeans had been saying all along: I'm maintaining, and all is right with the universe. So, the scale is back in the closet and I think I can trust my instinct (and my habits) for the next 20 days. Now, *that's* a liberating thing!
