Hi, Rosie! :)

Losing three pounds IS a BIG DEAL at ANY time! ;D ;D ;D ;D
FAR better than not losing, let alone gaining!

You're doing great! :) :) :)

My Dear Rosie... :)

Why do you say things like; "not great but better than gaining" or "only lost 2 pounds"? :-\
Every pound we lose is another victory toward better health and toward reaching our goals.

This is NOT a race!... This is a LIFESTYLE! :) :) :)
By living the FTS lifestyle , we are working toward healing our bodies from years of carb abuse.
This healing will take a good bit of time to finish.
The weight loss along the way, is only a fringe benefit.

If you focus on how much healthier your getting and how much better you feel,
you will be more likely to reach your ultimate weight loss goal. :) :) :)

Thanks Toni, guess I needed to hear that.  I just have so much to loose, and want my life back as fast as I can change things.
With God all things are possible

Welcome back if I haven't already said it.  And I can truly relate to the 'only 2 pounds' bit, I truly can.  It seems like everyone on the forum is dropping it off and you can only do it 'one pound at a time'.  But hey, as tony says 'it is a LIFESTYLE' and after you are on this path for a while, while the pounds do matter (no matter what anyone says) you feel better, and better and even more better.  Your body likes that you are taking better care of it;  it's your head that is playing the mind games.  We know what we have to do, but habits are a b_t__h (pardon the language) to shake off.

Take a deep breath and tell your, body, soul and your mind that 'YOU CAN DO THIS'.  One good or bad day at a time.
'Cos some days are a breeze and others really really aren't. 

Come on the forum when times are tough (I do and surely people get sick of my "crisis' ", but these truly wonderful people pick me right up, shake me up/down, make me feel so much better, as they will you.

oooooooooooooo (these are hugs if you didn't know)

You really got this you know, you really do  ;)

You're getting great advice Kfaith. The danger is impatience places you on a slippery slope to failure. One of these days you'll step on the scale and your weight will not have dropped as anticipated or it may have even gone up a pound or two. If this occurs at a time when your mindset is wrong your resulting decision may put you back into the potato chip bag  :o

Trust in the science, don't be in a hurry and keep strict with your carb intake.....no cheating. A little here and a little there does indeed put the weight loss brakes on.  8)
Keep The Faith, Stay The Course, Spread The Word on Facebook and Twitter  8)

You are doing GREAT Rosie!!  If you lose 2 pounds of fat and feel discouraged just put 2 pounds of hamburger meat on your countertop and see how much that really is ~ a real eye opener!!
