SHAPELYSHELLY, guess what? Coffee (with caffeine, yay) counts as water!!! According to the Sparkpeople dietitian, Becky Hand, you can have 32 ozs of coffee a day and count it as water! That, my friend, was music to my ears.

Also, sounds like your body's response to stress is to stop eating. I understand from book learnin' that eating less is the correct physiological reaction for mammals when confronted with stress. Maybe that's why some people have a weight problem in the first place: Their physiological response is off kilter, and so they eat more.

Oh well, just a thought on a Friday night. Spark On!





Eliminate "I will try". Replace with "I will".
You are now ready to succeed.
Let's go.

Well, congrats on the weight loss! Getting off caffeine is a tough one - be sure to drink a lot of water, cuz it helps with getting through it. Exercise helps, too! Hang in there!

You’ll get where you want to go as long as you are taking more steps in the right direction than the wrong one.

I went off of the res for a while (lol hadn't been able to be on here all of the time) and lost track of everything but due to stress AND eating right i dropped between 15 and 20 pounds. Funny thing was for 2 months i was pulling my pants up more and more and didn't notice i weighed less until I had a weigh in at my doctors (my personal scale broke) and i weighed in at 139; the last weigh in i had i was bouncing between 150 and 155. So getting the weight off is a success not quite the way i wanted to do it but now I'm focusing past the loss and looking towards toning and maintaining a healthy life style.
My second Woo Hoo is only having 1 cup of coffee this morning instead of 2!! that's a big thing for me, but now, as I am typing this, my eye lids are drooping and I am yawning. But since there is no caffeine available at the office or at home I am good!
