to you and your daughters in joining SP and sharing such a wonderful weight loss of a combined 100lbs; that's amazing! Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the Staying Motivated message board in regards to my post of "Who/What is Your #1 Motivator". I know you must feel much better, if I were you I would. I wish you and your daughters much more success.
I saw your comment about "the hardest part of losing weight", and your response about hunger. I felt that way for many many years (while doing low calorie, low fat diets). I'm not sure which diet you are on, but you might want to try something like South Beach or Atkins. The higher protien of those diets can really fill you up, so you aren't constantly hungry.
Sorry for my unsolicited advice. Your comment just reminded me so much of me in the past. I've lost ~50 pounds on a higher protien, lower carbohydrate diet, and I can honestly say I'm never hungry anymore.
*hugs* being hungry really sucks, and ultimately, its not sustainable! I hear ya.
Hey Punky, I grind about a cup of flax seed at a time and keep in air tight container in fridge to keep from going rancid. The ungrounded seeds stay in another air tight container in a cool section in kitchen cupboard. I bought a coffee bean grinder to grind them about 7-8 yrs ago..($10) and it's paid for themselves many many times. Don't buy the ground seeds in the store...don't know how long they've been sitting there. Good luck and see you around the boards!
