Putting away the scale really worked last month, I did pretty well maintaining!! I was afraid to step on it this morning though, I was sure it would show a five pound gain or something. Thankfully when I did step on it I was thrilled to find I didn't gain, I actually lost three more pounds. I might start weighing weekly but all and all I am super happy with my month without the scale.  Smiley

Sherripie, you are such an encouragement to me, I been telling all my friends and family about  you and how if you did it in 15 months so can I.
You have given me great HOPE!
I have even more to loose than you did but I REALLY believe I am  going to do it this time. I wear dresses all the time and I wear a size 32 now. In 1984 I was a size 13 and thought I was fat than, Lord knows I will have one big happy dance when I get there again;)
I am only weighing one time a week on Sundays.  When I reach my goal I think I would want to weigh at least once per month, so if I had more than a 3 or 4 pound gain, I could adjust the carbs.
You are a great testimony of what staying with FTS can accomplish!!!! Grin

Hi Sherri! Smiley

That's fabulous news!.... HOORAY Sherri!!! Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley

Yours is a case in point that we do not need a scale to lose weight.

The scale is OK for checking our weight once in a while.
But getting obsessed with it and allowing it to dictate how we feel is simply trading our "carb addictions" for "scale addictions".

Wow Sherrie!!!  Congrats.  NEVER let anyone tell you that you can't do something because YOU know better.  To make all these changes in your life and now have complete control has got to feel amazing. 

Way to Go!

I STILL hide that damn scale. It makes me completely crazy. Maintaining, all I do is watch my clothes. If they feel a little tight I pull back on what I'm eating and watch my carbs really close. It's been 3 years now and I'm still maintaining and keeping it off. FTS works and it stays off! No scale needed!

Hi, Sherrie! Smiley

Most healthy people do not live by the scale.
Like you, they use their clothes to let them know if they're gaining.

Congratulations on your continued success being a healthier you! Grin Grin Grin
