    RAFL wk 3: down 2.5 to 212.5. Total loss to date is 33.1 lbs.

    I decided to try the Fast Track plan this week. I started the week out good and dropped the 2.5 lbs
    by Tuesday. Then the scale did not want to move anymore. I did see 211.5 one day this week but the
    daily fluctuations landed on 212.5. I OD'd on French Onion soup Friday night at Ruby Tuesdays. One
    bowl did have the cheese & bread but the second one did not. It has been so cold and windy here
    lately with no sign of it letting up so I wanted soup to warm me up. I had their soup and salad bar
    for dinner. I loaded up on veggies and added 1/4 cupfuls of cheese, ham and cottage cheese for
    protein. For dessert I had some fruit and a little bit of chocolate pudding. Wouldn't you know it
    yesterday morning I was up 2lbs from the salt in the soup. I was so glad to see the 2lbs gone this
    morning. WATER {glug} truly helps flush the extra salt from our bodies.

    My game plan at this point is to continue with following the FT except on days that I eat out. This
    is part of my WOL so I need to find a way to properly incorporate it into my eating. So...I will eat
    low and make better choices when I eat out. I think what I was doing wrong since September is eating
    my target & Activity points each day plus eating out 2-3 nights a week. I'm not very good at
    calculating points when I don't know exactly how they made a dish so I probably under estimated my
    points those meal. Truth be told, I probably ate my Flexpoints a few times over those weeks. So now
    I am back to eating low to bank for the times that I eat out. This is how I was doing it last summer
    at my mothers house and it worked. So far it is working again.

    2.5 lbs is awesome!!! Fast track with modifiers is a good way to go. It is a little too strict to
    incorporate into a meal out...I know I tried... and failed ;-).

  5. Wowee Laura. 2.5 lbs is a great loss this week. Sounds like you've done a lot of soul-searching to
    find out why your weight loss had slowed and have come up with some good solutions. The willingness
    and ability to be honest and then to take corrective action is the kind of commitment that will see
    you through. Thanks for the great post.

    Thanks Connie. It actually could have been 3.5lb but I did not catch the lowest weight on my
    official WI day. The other modification that I made is I am also eating AP. I don't want to eat too
    low for fear of stalling my already slugish metabolism. Eating out is part of my life so I have to
    figure out how to do it right. I just wish that I had figured out the problem months ago.

    Thanks PR. It also took looking at the Fast Track menu to realize that many of my "extra" daily
    points were really snacks. My normal menu is around 20-22 points on days that I don't eat out. But I
    was eating 4-6 extra "empty" points because I needed to hit my min target of 26. It gets worse if I
    add in my extra 3 AP. Thats 7-9 points of junk each day. Then add on top of that the fact that I eat
    out at least 2x per week. I was not "banking" points like I did last summer to cover these dinners.
    Hence, the slow down in my weight loss. It may be that FlexPoints is not the right program for
    people like me who eat out a lot. We need to bank points but that is not part of the program. 35
    Flex points might not be enough cushion for some nor should we be forced into eating a min number of
    points that might be used to cover other days.

    Thanks Lesanne. Let's hope it works. I did blow it tonight at a friends house. She brought out these
    huge chocolate chip cookies for us. I have no clue as to how many points they were. These cookies
    must have been 6 inches in diameter. But they were soooo good.

    Those kind of cookies use to be a once to twice a week staple. Now, maybe twice in more than a year
    and when a hiking trip is planned. Resist at the bakery is what it takes. Now if they were at a
    friend's house...... that would be harder
