for the first time in a long time. Maybe even a little bit foxy. Might even wear something slinky to bed tonight. I'm down 14 pounds. Only 5 more pounds to what I was last spring. 5 more pounds after that to last summer. I just feel like a huge weight (pun intended) has been lifted off my shoulders. I've got a spring in my step even though I feel awful (thanks to my IBS). I even treated myself to a new pair of earrings.

Thanks to all of you for the support. I don't know what I would have done without you all. Isn't it great we can all be here for each other? I feel so fortunate. You guys are awesome! Hugs, Alicia.

Hi, there! I'm horrible at giving directions, but it's slow here on the weekends so I'll give it a try. Just click on the board or forum you want to post in (they're listed above the green bar: IBS Diet, IBS Recipes, etc) or you can click on Message Boards (on the green bar) and from there choose the forum you want to post in. Don't click on any subject listed within the forum/once you're in the forum, if you want to start a new subject. On the right hand side, just a little bit above the the list of subjects, you'll see six yellow rectangles. Click on the one that says POST. HTH!

Alicia, it makes me happy to hear how great you're feeling about yourself! Doesn't it feel good to treat yourself to something pretty when you reach a goal?

I hope you get a little break from your IBS, but this is a good first step! Your attitude and kindness are an inpsiration!

I hope this feeling good about oneself is contagious! This is a good "virus" to have! Seriously, accolades for treating yourself. A self that is treated royally often responds accordingly. YOU ARE WORTH IT!!! Now, I feel guilty for not rewarding myself or treating myself to anything lately.

WOW girl you have done so well, the weight is falling off you, its great that you are feeling so good too.

I have put on weight since I was reporting every day but I am pretty happy with my weight- I will try to lose three or four pounds before my September wedding (so that I can pig out over the wedding celebrations and honeymoon) and I could do with toning up a bit, but I am inspired by your HUGE loss, a whole STONE, WOWEEE
