Wuv, I am so happy seeing you again in here, so now you're in maintenance? I mean you mentioned you can go to any restaurant, I'm not sure how this thing work, I only ever did Phase I, so I guess in Phase IV you can eat everything moderately? and glad to hear you have a BF
Yup I am in Maintenance, when I go out to eat I eat my normal, steak and grilled veggies or a grilled chicken/steak salad. I have become used of eating this way so why change it? IF I am having my splurge day and we go out I will have baked potato but that doesn't happen to often. Over the last few months I haven't really "watched" what I ate and gained 6lbs. I would do fine for breakfast and lunch but dinner we at out a lot. Since I hadn't ate off of program for 2.5 years, I wanted to eat like a regular person. I can't do that, I will ALWAYS have to watch what I eat no matter what. I started back in phase 1 Monday and I am down those 6lbs. It feels great to know that IF I do lose control I know how to overcome and get right back on to lose it.
I am not using IP products though, just to let you know because I can use alternative to keep me in check which is working for me. I still have a bar for breakfast with my 2 cups of coffee, a shake for lunch with 2 cups of veggies, 8oz of meat with 2 cups of veggies for supper and a shake at night. Its routine for me to eat this way now
I have added a picture my sister in law found of me from Christmas 2003, THIS REALLY shows how far I am come!!
