Again it looks like to posts in one day. The first actually looks like a response to someone that posted on my Journal. I want to think it was Nikki. I might be spelling it wrong. I do remember someone by that name that started the same time as me. My next installment of “Blast from the Past”:

I started ZC one week before I requested to become a member. It looks like we have the same registration date (6/29/10). I have extensive experience with LC and VLC so it was not a bad transition for me to ZC. While on VLC I occasionally only ate chicken.
“Keep strong and live long”. Just continue to plug away. You have made it this far. By the time you know it one month will pass by and then six. I focus day by day. I don’t care what my friends, family or coworkers think of my WOE. I am doing this for ME. I make sure that I have the right food at home for ME. My DW can eat whatever she wants. I’ll even cook it for her.
As far as the craving is concerned: I was reading online and all of a sudden I started to think about steak. I really wanted to eat steak (strange). I only can describe this as a craving. At that moment I pictured a steak in my mind and my mouth watered. I almost did not eat, because a few hours earlier I ate a juicy Rib eye and I had no hunger pangs. I remembered reading in this forum that in the beginning we should just eat (ZC) and not worry about amounts or calories. I know we are supposed to eat when we are hungry and to satiety. I have no idea if anyone here has experience this, but I did (maybe it was psychological).
I wish the best for you and I hope you can get through this stage of change without complications. There is a lot of good support here.

I'm a little tired today. I didn't sleep well. My spirits are up and I still feel very positive about (ZC). I have had a consistent decrease of weight so far (10.6 pounds). I would not be discouraged if the scale fluctuated up and down or if I went into a stall. I would just adjust my choice of (ZC) foods and or amounts and see what happens.

Like I noted earlier the first post seems to respond to someone that posted on my Journal. It seems that the subject of cravings for Beef is mentioned. It looks like I was trying to give her some support: Rookie to Rookie. Now I am trying to over analyze the craving situation. More advice was giving about just eat (ZC) and not to worry about calories. I do remember that being said. I believe it was to get your body adjusted to this (WOE) and the effects of losing weight, as in my case, would naturally happen. On the second shorter post a give a good positive overview of how things are with me concerning (ZC) and some weight loss. OK, I think I can give some Rookie points for giving support to another Rookie and for being positive about the outlook of my new (WOE).
Have a Healthy Day my Family and Friends. We all need some support in some shape or form. Even if sometimes we don’t know it. I remember a member a here by the name of Christiana. I thought of her as my “little sister” I loved the quote in her profile signature. So I leave you with those words: “Be kinder than necessary for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of Battle”.
(ZC)er Happy New YEAR
