Definitely change that trait - otherwise it's too easy to give up. You're doing great so far basil - and keep it up!!

if you "must" drink a soda, go with the 7 ounce can instead of the twelve or 16 (or larger) variety...

I'm with all of you. 2012 seemed like year of proverbial "Chinese Water Torture" for me, but now I've got a new job and must change my routines. The idea that the weight came on slow, so the change will be slow, is great. You BOLers may be my support group!

I gave up pop on July 27 after I got some health results from my life insurance exam! I dropped 4 pounds immedialely the first week. I am at a hurdle of 10 pounds now and can't seem to get over it. Overall, I am happy with the 10 pounds. I was drinking a 32 oz everyday of pop. Once I stopped with it, I felt SO much better. I was less tired and had more energy. I turned to sparkling water when I craved a pop...I just wanted the fizz. I don't even drink those now. Mainly water and maybe a tea once a week.

I have never thought of sparkling water... and I do think it is the fizz I am looking for when I drink a soda. I might try that.

It helped both me and my wife. I think it works as long as all you are wanting is the fizz.

Wardrobe is changing almost every month now. I put on a pair of pants this morning that were tight fitting at Thanksgiving, and they were too loose - especially in the derriere!

So those go into the Goodwill sack. Pant size is now 8 with one "curvy fit" size 6 pair!

Size 4 - here I come!

And now I have to tell Lane Bryant they can QUIT sending me their catalog. All of their clothes are TOO BIG for me!

YAY!!!!

Be proud and show that off PR!! grin
Sart looking for good thrift and resale shops! We have great ones here. But you can build your new smaller wardrobe for a LOT less money.
I have brand new clothes that I picked up at these stores for next to nothing ($1200 suit for $10, $75-$100 jeans for $6). It takes a while to find the good ones, but its worth it. wink

Just a tip- I take turmeric capsules almost every day. Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory, so it reduces the daily pain I have from some very old injuries without damaging my organs the way ibuprofen does. I used to complain about working out because I was in so much pain...now I don't have that excuse anymore.

I don't know if it will help those with arthritis or RA, but it might. If you are interested, it is hard to find in the stores but you can find it online.

Thanks - although in Southern California there are a LOT of thin gals who do the same so finding good items in the Thrifts is a challenge. Having said that, TJ Maxx and Ross, as well as JCP on a one-day sale, have some awesome bargains!

KTW... thanks so much for the idea. I do my best not to take too much ibuprofen because of those issues, so anything else I am willing to try.

I will check local health food stores, but in the meantime - is there a trusted site you use?
