YES!(yes you can loose that much before you go) ( My latest source of motivation? 40th high school next year-not the official reunion but a small group that I haven't seen since about 1978 or so. ...they can see on Facebook that I am fat but seeing them in person is a whole other thing! )
Try to keep positive, I know it's hard! I am having a strange week, not bad just strange...with Marc in England I am not sleeping, going to sleep at 3 am getting up at 6, napping in the afternoon, ate a late dinner but at least at Whole Foods salad bar! (they have lots of shredded veggies ,beans, lettuces, and no fat dressings too, just costs way too much!) It was really way too hot to do much else.
If you have some particular favorites send vegetarian recipes my way. My big excitement in the area of "backyard harvest" is that my sweet potatoes came in big time! Husband does not like them....freezing my bounty I guess.
