Yesterday was a big day in our house- I accepted a job offer im ecstatic about and my fiancé finished law school!! To celebrate we went to taco Tuesday. I had some chips and salsa, a couple drinks & grilled mahi tacos w salad & corn. I am proud of myself for ordering veggies most, but typically I’d pick between a drink or chips. I expected a weight gain this morning and it was a maintenance day!! I love learning that one dinner didn’t put a dent in my progress and for the first time I was really able to drop the guilt. Big win for me!!

  • Happy Hump Day! Remember that your palate is fully capable of changing according to the foods you choose to eat. Your cravings will noticeably subside, and foods you used to enjoy will soon lose their luster. Nothing is better than how the right foods make you feel - that feeling lasts and tells your brain to crave those foods instead. Veggies are by far the most satisfying thing for me to eat! I literally feel more alive during and long after!

    What are your favorite veggies?? And what do you not crave anymore??🚫

Sautéed peppers and onions. I don’t crave Doritos as much as I used to. Omg And cherry tomatoes too. I used to not like cherry tomatoes at all and then I started dipping them in hummus Just to eat them and now I eat them plain like they’re going out of style. My husband started planting the cherry tomato plant because I was buying cherry tomatoes at the store every other day.

  • A good snack today! Listening to my body on what size snack I will have each day. The call was SO helpful for me Friday- I’m letting go of my fear and riding this melting mode wave as long as I can!

My husband is in maintenance mode now, which is awesome! He is down 70lbs. This however has created a first time challenge for me. Throughout our weightloss journey together we have been on the same page, eating the same things ect. Now that he is done his journey I was forced to get very clear with mine. We went to the movies, he had a small popcorn and smart sweets candy. I brought seaweed snacks and ate a huge salad before we left. We went for coffee sunday and I treated myself to an Americano misto(usually drink black coffee) and 3 bites of his pb cookie. So good, but 3 bites spread put throigh the course of drinking my coffee was enough

I gotta admit, i love being in weightloss mode but maintenance mode looks soooo fun. We went out for brunch and then bought him all new clothes. i was so happy to see him feeling confident and buying items he would not have tried on before. For me this ignites my mindset of just finishing what i have started and keeps me motivated to stay the course. I cant wait till i get to buy all new clothes :)

  • I don't like having photos taken of me but had to share! My girls took me out today for a cut and color to celebrate my 25 lbs weight loss and mother's day! My hair is about 8 inches shorter and feels so good! I also noticed my face is so much thinner than it was a few months ago!

Anyone else have a family member/friend who makes you feel guilty for making good food choices? I try to keep it positive and use the “I’m good” for anything like Ilana says (no really, I’m good!). I love my sister, I don’t ever want her to feel worse about herself just bc she’s in a darker place/not ready to make changes and sees me feeling healthy & in control. I’m constantly boasting about Ilana and 2B, but I never want to push it.

I struggle b/w sabotaging myself to make sure she feels comfortable vs sticking to my guns so I can meet my goals 😣

Aw I struggle with this too so I get it! First off, therapy actually really helps me with guilt that I feel for getting healthier and bettering myself while some people I love are doing the opposite.
Deep down, we know those comments come from a place of envy or fear and it’s hurtful for us to feel like we are causing those feelings in them!! I’ve really tried to learn to just laugh things off and say really, I’m good! I’ll let you know if I want pizza.. or take a few bites and move on. The less I focus on it, the less it seems to come up. A comment my aunts say is ugh look at you eating so healthy! And I just say I know I know.. because I do know I’m making healthy choices and it’s okay if they know it too!! Even if the comments are hurtful I try to make it light & not get defensive like I have in the past. I try to own it and let my happiness of making these choices speak for themself. My therapist always reminds me that other peoples happiness is not our responsibility & at the end of the day the people we love want to see us happy too. Sorry this is so long!! This has been a long time struggle of mine too!

Regina - love the way you said that - I’m definitely going to use that in future!

Laura/Jac - so helpful, thank you!!

So proud of myself. Went out to a buffet. I Had Ham, Veggies & chicken my dessert was an orange. No salad just roasted veggies. Went back for seconds on those. I did have a 6oz mimosa but then just water. :heartpulse::blush::cherry_blossom: rest of the day was good. Thanks Ilana :cherry_blossom:

This was my first Mother’s Day and it was so special! We went out to lunch but I didn’t go crazy and we went for a nice, long walk after! I was not disappointed with my choices at the end of the day so that’s good! :)

Someone asked::

Are there any companies that have prepped or ready made meals that follow 2B? I’ve used Blue Apron, Hello Fresh, etc in the past, but the meals were not inline with plate it. I love so many of your 2B recipes, so I’m looking for easier/faster ways to get them.

PLEASE COMMENT BELOW IF YOU WOULD BE INTERESTED IN THIS TYPE OF SERVICE WITH 2B MINDSET/PLATE IT APPROVED RECIPES.
