    Well...the day is just about over. 30 days are quickly coming to an end. Thank you ALL...this focused and determined bunch on THIS thread were definitely instrumental in my success. I hope we have all secured more grip over the inanimate object...food...and will carry this knowledge on...that cravings come and go, but we remain in control of the outcome. No guilt, just well informed choices. Well done everyone...WELL DONE!!!

    Well, MY day 30 is tomorrow. And I will take you up on your offer @suzannes. Checking in will keep ME on the straight and narrow... One more day...

    I assure you that you CAN enjoy your anniversary and not compromise your eating...if that's what you choose to do. That being said, no regrets, WHICHEVER you choose. Do it with GUSTO!

    My FFF will come in two days. I am determined to keep this thing right...as right as humanly possible- resetting quickly when it gets a little dirty...not allowing a swamp to occur before I pull myself back in... I have two days to be very honest with myself: do I need to extend to be fully confident about being in control, or am I ready? This weekend was great. I want THAT as my majority...bold and determined to choose what I eat and enjoy my choices... The book comes on MY 30-May 2nd. This time, it's a lifelong journey... We can all do this Let's DOOOOO it!!!!!

    2 of 3 crazy weekend days conquered. Just gotta get through celebratory dinner tonight, then headed for the home stretch. Feeling good. Thinking I will do a slow roll. No need to reintroduce what I know is problematic...

    It is quite astonishing the amount of FOOLISHNESS that crosses our path the last leg of the race: Today: free breakfast (had brisket and potatoes...yum) Tomorrow: appreciation luncheon. Home cooked food. Sunday: taken out for anniversary at a restaurant that I love. Savory AND sweet. Yup. It's good in a way. This is real life, in real time. But crew...we DO life. We know how now. All of us will make it to Monday with new found zeal and strength!!!! BRING IT!!!!!

    Cravings will always be. We have boot camped our way into mindfulness. When SD roared...you didn't cave. (I am NOT AFRAID of you!!) We've learned that WE are the animate objects, and food is INANIMATE. We've learned that...HECK YEA...we have a CHOICE to eat or NOT to eat. Melissa CALLS this something... We now know, almost 30 days later, the METHOD in conducting ourselves when the cravings DO come. Cool points to ALL of us for not caving in, giving up, justifying minimizing or rationalizing a slip that could cost us the game... actions that probably would NOT have taken place a month ago... We've GOT this..now and forward.

    @tutormom, please. You've had this, you had this, you got this. It's the brain. As has been said, some of us (I have my hand raised) may have spent YEARS eating the way we "DID" before the whole. We have accomplished the unbelievable in a few weeks... believable only because we're LIVING it. Advertising companies spend crazy money for seconds of advertising... because they know that pics WORK. See a hamburger...WANT a hamburger. Hey... drastic times (last days of whole) may call for drastic measures... Only YOU can prevent forest fires. HEY!!!????!!! YOU GOT THIS. LET'S DOOOOO THIS!!!

    I am day 23 and already looking at day 31. I already know that grains give me knee issues, as does soy, too much sugar gives me a migraine (duh...), And pasta puts me in a coma...from PREVIOUS wholes... The closer I get, the more convinced that I will just stay away from these things. Insanity is continuing to do the same thing over and over again and expect different results. Enough. Come on. Taste buds rule no more... I was literally typing this morning rolling into the stop I get off to walk. Thanks for being here to reach out to. I hit send, grabbed my stuff and literally jumped off the train. I really want to get some good walking in on the countdown... since we're all fat burning machines now!!!
