Amazing results

I have been in the "maintenance" or Phase 4 for 21 days. My weight is stable, so I decided to look at measurements, as Haylie suggested. Imagine my amazement to see that my waist is 2 inches smaller than it was at the start on July 29th. My upper arm, thigh and neck also reflected smaller diameters. (My hips seem to have grown an inch, however that could be from the pair of pants I was wearing this time.)

We have learned how to eat better, although we are in a bit of a rut and need to branch out a bit. I've been processing tomatoes like mad since I purchased 2 bushels of organic tomatoes. Need to make some homemade tomato soup.

My friend, Mary, is restarting this week with her hubby. She lost about 10 pounds the first round. She is not confident he can do it since he hates vegetables. It will be interesting to see how long he lasts. Mary eats meat so Phase 2 is less of an issue for her, although still not her favorite.

When I proposed doing it again to my hubby, he said "I am NEVER going to do that again." If I do, guess I'll be on my own :)
