Phase 4: Phase 1 day today
LOVE this thread! I haven't posted on here in a while and have found my eating lately to be unstructured and slowly moving back to a few mindless eating patterns from before. I credit this thread with helping me avoid that in the past and need to remember that now that I am in maintenance - planning, planning, PLANNING!
Especially now that I am off my normal work schedule and having family, etc. with the hectic holiday pace!

1 cup unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk

Thanks! I also had my own inspiration examples going through Phase 1, and even now in maintenance I have found some (Mailie is a real 'loser', in the most loveable term of endearment). There is no way I could have made it without the support, ideas, inspiration, and friendships made through this forum.

WRT exercise - remember that I (should have) waited until Phase 3 to really start up my 'hard core' routine - although I had been working out before IP. I did do light walking from the beginning and then light weights from Week 8 through the end of Phase 1. I started the higher intensity running & workouts at the beginning of my 2-week Phase 2, but would advise any other folks to wait until Phase 3 (as my coach had suggested, I just jumped the gun). I believe it did stall me out to start that too soon - I didn't see the typical P2 loss, but also didn't see the typical P3 gain.

I made my siggy filled with details of my journey to show how I lost - I stayed 100% On Plan through my 22 weeks - some weeks it was HARD, some weeks it was HARDER, some weeks it was easier, some weeks it was a piece of IP mugcake. As a person who has been obese since elementary school I still am a little shocked when I go shopping and find the size 2 FITS.

Today is my first day. However, I am old timer when it comes to various plans, so...

B: Maple Oatmeal, 2 cups of coffee with Splenda and 1 oz of milk and a little vanilla protein drink

L: Lettuce with grilled chicken and Maple Farms Sugar Free vinaigrette; Leek soup with mushrooms sauteed in a little olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt; steamed broccoli with sea salt and spices*

D: 96% ground beef taco meat seasoned with cumin, chili powder, onion powder, and sea salt mixed with sauteed poblano pepper and mushrooms, topped with green onions and tomato, wrapped in lettuce as a shell

S: Blueberry, Cranberry, Pomegranate drink

*I'm filling up quickly, so I have most of my lunch as an afternoon snack. I find that a larger meal at lunch is better for me.

And, of course, tons and tons of water. :)
