Good Morning everyone, feeling a bit bloated. will have to control my emotions.

Holly - saw your post about your coach wanting to lose a few more. You mentioned you were worried she might be wanting to make a few $s.
Your ideal weight, you will know. On the coach - think about how has she treated you on the entire journey? has she been consistent? has she been supportive? did she ever push IP products on you? just something to think about.

i need to journal. my gosh i need to journal.

Good morning everyone! Wow, I had a bad dream this morning - and it was about eating! First one of those. A friend was opening a restaurant and gave me a sample of a lot of foods. I was trying to eat just the lighter things, but looked down at my plate and saw I had eaten *everything*! Then I remembered I wasn't supposed to eat anything not OP and should have turned the whole plate away. I can't remember feeling so awful in a dream in years.:o

Winds are up today but not too bad so it looks like it's another dive day. We're hoping to find my DH's GoPro and [expensive] video light he dropped yesterday while trying to help a new diver who was having trouble in the surface current getting back to the boat. Wish us luck!

LizRRR, sorry that your son is ill. My friends son managed to throw up all over like that, even managing to get vomit [I]under[/B] his mattress!!

Sonyainva, hope you are able to journal soon and great job for planning ahead with your emotional control.

Had a rough day with my food choices yesterday. I ended up having an emotional time (missing my dad) while celebrating Christmas with my step-mom and brother yesterday. I did not prepare for it as I did not expect those feelings at all. The food plan I had was not sufficient for the very off plan hors d'oeuvres she (unexpectedly) served. This was followed by ordering a chicken meal that was to have "minimal breading" on it that I assumed I could pull off. I am not sure how one possibly could put more bread and coating on a little chicken tender. Now I am putting it behind me, saying "Oh, well!" and planning my food around the menu for the party I will be at tonight.

Amen! :) Also weighing everyday is a trap for disappointment for most people. I can be up for four days and then on weigh in day, I'm down 3 pounds. I try to stay off the scale during the week.

Sorry you're not feeling well, Rainbow!!! Get better, sweetie!:hug::hug:

Weighed in yesterday and I lost 4 pounds! Yay! 6 pounds to goal, but I'm going to lower it by at least 10 pounds, but for now, it's great to say "6 pounds to goal!" :dance::dance:

Snowy and not so cold here in Santa Fe today. Happy New Year's Eve, Everyone!

Good luck, Sonya! You can do this!

I was at a get together yesterday and there was lots of Mexican food, which I love, but oh, boy, I was eyeing the chocolate cupcakes. I didn't eat them. I didn't really want them, but the old addiction did. I had some celery and water and walked away. :)

I live by myself, so when I started IP, I just got rid of everything I knew I wouldn't be eating for a long time. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to have sweet junkie things in my home. They just call my name with such a sweet siren song. :)

Tex, Stick with it! Don't give up on all the hard work you have done!

In the begining I was a slow loser, maybe a pound a week. But then all of a sudden it is like my body realized, hey, this is good for me. I had a week like you did and man was I pissed off, but then the next week I lost 6 pounds. So it will add up. I really do understand where you are coming from. I was watching everyone dropping 3, 4 6 pounds a week and I would lose 1, maybe 2. It can be frustrating, but remember it will happen for you!

If I can be any help or encouragement let me know.

So happy to see my weight scale smilling back at me this morning! Well, I was smilling anyway. Hope this is the end of my 'plateau'!!! Pretty discouraging to see a lack on movement on that scale for almost 3 weeks!!!! (OK, I might have cheated a bit...who told you?) Haha
But I'm back and very happy today. Hope it's a sign for good things to come.

As the new year begins, I wish you (my 3FC friends) a year of peace, happiness and an abundance of new friends. Every one should be born again on Janurary 1st.
So as we begin this new chapter in our lives, I wish you all the happiness you dream of and all the free time to spend with me on 3FC :-D

Aww, Rainbow, get well soon! :hug:

As for dreams, ladies, the only food dreams I have had left me feeling quite happy because I enjoyed all the food in the dream with no anxiety, then woke to find I suffered no calories/fat/carbs!! Call me crazy, but food dreams have always worked to my advantage. They can be VERY real, I could have sworn I ate a slice of a wonderful fancy 7 layer decadent chocolate cake one time!
Religious on IP this entire weekend and no results on the scale....not feeling it today :(

It's a down side of weighing daily. I also weigh daily. I get excited if the result is favorable, but totally ignore any "negative" result until official WI.
As for WHOOSHES, I can honestly say I've not had a single WHOOSH on IP. Did lose 5 lbs in the first week, but otherwise it's been between 1.8-3.6 steadily for me, and usually somewhere in the middle.

i am having a hard time being 100% op, have a big old party at my home tonight. going to plan ahead.

my nemesis is cashews. my coach has told me they are high in carbs and fats.
why cant i stay away. i am not allowing any more cashews in my home.

i have done that with icecream and other goodies, gotta get cashews out, out of here!

Stay strong! Remember, you are trying to get to Jan. 29, that's not very far off. And by all means, throw out the cashews for now. It's so easy to go astray with nuts because a small amount can pack quite a punch in terms of breaking our diet.

THIS IS AWESOME!!! CONGRATS!:woohoo:

Happy New Years Eve, everyone! I set a new mini-goal. It's only for 10 lbs by Valentines, but short-term goals keepme focused. I also want to go down a size in jeans by early Feb. I have lots of nice almost new jeans in the next lowest size from a few years back before I gained this weight.

Thanks Kat. Everyone here has been most encouraging and giving me the strength to continue. Since I only see my Coach once a week, it's hard to get anything out of her. I plan on going to my Dr. after this week for more guidance if things don't change.

10 pounds by Valentines isn't an "only" in my book. :) You can do it! You'll be rocking those jeans for Valentine's Day!

Weigh in up .6 lbs today, but body fat down 2%. I'll take it!

I thought it might not be the best weigh in because Friday was a very active day for me, I'm still a little sore.

Sometimes I felt like that too... my weight loss was pretty slow and my overall average was about 1.75/wk. But I eventually got there. I've just phased out into maintenance this past Friday.
Hang in there and you'll eventually reach your goal. :hug: It's really important to not compare your weight loss to that of others because it can be frustrating. Everyone is different.

A1TEXAN did you happen to read Al Roker's interview in the paper yesterday? He said the number doesn't define him but keeps him honest. HE celebrates all the number means to him. I'm a daily weigher as well. It's when I stop weighing that I have run into trouble in my life. I have had many days where personally I thought it should have gone down but it didn't but eventually the whoosh fairy comes and the weight comes off!
Starshine Congrats!!! excited for you
NOLAwhodatchick I set the same mini goal. Secretly I want 15 lbs gone by then but I will be very happy with anything. 15 lbs puts me in the overweight category and out of the big OBESE category. One questions - Where do you find the Dr. Sears ZONE protein powder? I will be bringing my son back to college in NOLA at the end of the week so I can get it there if I cant find it here.
Facing the New Year's traditional dinner here in Louisiana that includes pork, black eyed peas and cabbage. Going to my SIL so I will have to bring alternatives. Don't like ham and black eyed peas aren't exactly IP approved.
I hope everyone has a safe NYE and see yall in 2013! It's gonna be a GREAT new year!

Good Morning!
All this talk of dreams is too funny. I had a dream last night, not food related but really odd. My son was taking a poetry class and his teacher's name was Mr. Falk, he was struggling and failing. Very odd...could it be the different eating???

So today I'm at work, we're hoping for a noon release (fingers crossed). Out tonight to a dessert and drink party. I'll eat before and bring a bottle of Pelegrino. Making a roast for dinner tonight.

Happy New Year to all!

Was today WI day or are you peeking ahead-of-time?
Are you putting your oil ON your food or just cooking w/ it? Some found the "cooking only" thing stalled em & they had to put it ON
If you get to WI day w/o a loss, it is your coaches job to tweak your plan. Sometimes ADDING a packet works, too!

Feeling your frustration...read on...

I'm a little disappointed I don't get a NYE or NYD weigh-in. My friend's scale weighs REALLY heavy and since I've been OP, I know I haven't gained & it is calibrated way different than my clinic. Oh well...trust the protocol and wait til 1/7...:?:

Until then, I'll be jealous of everyone's great WIs! Congrats to all!

I've scheduled w/my coach to go twice monthly but I'm not sure I can take the anticipation...

HEY MAEZY!!! How are you doing? I hope your recovery is going well. I am in AWE of your 51lbs!! You have had a lot on your plate, and have nonetheless rocked this diet! WTG!!!
I get the ZONE protein powder from online; I don't know of a place to by it in person. It costs $19.69 per cannister but I find a little goes a long way. They say it is flavor neutral but I find it to have just a touch of sweet flavor when I add it to a shake. Not overtly sweet, just a hint like when you add a splash of milk to coffee. They also say on the site it is to be mixed with food such as soup, smoothies, yogurt as it isn't 100% dissolveable in water. I find I have to stir it well. If you google Sears Zone Protein Powder, it should pop right up as the first link. Or if you don't find it that way, go to the Dr. Sears zonediet site and look under Products>Supplements and it will be the last item under the supplements list. Its working well for me and my situation.


So today I'm at work, we're hoping for a noon release (fingers crossed).
Keeping my fingers crossed that you get off at noon, too!!!

I became somewhat ill this morning shortly after my first post. I felt a mild stomach ache last night after eating off-plan hors d'oeuvres, but was able to push it out of my mind for dinner. (I guess I didn't want to cause problems for us going to the restaurant and me without an appetite. What normal eater does that???) Now I am trying to decide whether to stay home or go to my friend's party tonight. I would much rather stay home, although I can't decide how much of that feeling is from being sick and how much of it is being overwhelmed by work and underwhelmed with time, energy, and focus and not wanting to drive 1 hour there and back tonight. I also feel like I should see my friends because we are so far away and that my DH will stay home if I do (and miss his friends too). Sorry for the rambling... Just want to go back to bed, but feel like I'm really just being a whiny (self-pittying) wimp.

Thanks, Rainbow! I'm amazed that my losses have been pretty much consistent, especially getting close to goal. Simply amazed by it and so very happy! :D

Hope you get your color back soon, Rainbow!

:hug::hug: RAINBOW IS COMING BACK!!! ok, so its only a few letters....but thats a start!!! :D

Weigh in up .6 lbs today, but body fat down 2%. I'll take it!

I thought it might not be the best weigh in because Friday was a very active day for me, I'm still a little sore.

no doubt that .6 was all that muscle you are building up!! WAY TO GO on knocking out that 2% fat!!!

rainbow hope that you feel better soon! love the new pic!
A1TEXAN did you happen to read Al Roker's interview in the paper yesterday? He said the number doesn't define him but keeps him honest. HE celebrates all the number means to him. I'm a daily weigher as well. It's when I stop weighing that I have run into trouble in my life. I have had many days where personally I thought it should have gone down but it didn't but eventually the whoosh fairy comes and the weight comes off!

Facing the New Year's traditional dinner here in Louisiana that includes pork, black eyed peas and cabbage. Going to my SIL so I will have to bring alternatives. Don't like ham and black eyed peas aren't exactly IP approved.
I hope everyone has a safe NYE and see yall in 2013! It's gonna be a GREAT new year!

thank you maezy!! how are you doing love, after your surgery??

i like the quote from al....so true...that number keeps me honest too!!
me....i love the ham tradition...so tomorrow its ham and collard greens, even though i don't like them and i will have 1 spoonful of black eyes peas for LUCK!!!

BRING ON THE NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!! WE SO GOT THIS!!!!!!!!!!!

I became somewhat ill this morning shortly after my first post. I felt a mild stomach ache last night after eating off-plan hors d'oeuvres, but was able to push it out of my mind for dinner. (I guess I didn't want to cause problems for us going to the restaurant and me without an appetite. What normal eater does that???) Now I am trying to decide whether to stay home or go to my friend's party tonight. I would much rather stay home, although I can't decide how much of that feeling is from being sick and how much of it is being overwhelmed by work and underwhelmed with time, energy, and focus and not wanting to drive 1 hour there and back tonight. I also feel like I should see my friends because we are so far away and that my DH will stay home if I do (and miss his friends too). Sorry for the rambling... Just want to go back to bed, but feel like I'm really just being a whiny (self-pittying) wimp.

:hug::hug: get rest....it helps!! hope you feel better soon!!

Was today WI day or are you peeking ahead-of-time?
Are you putting your oil ON your food or just cooking w/ it? Some found the "cooking only" thing stalled em & they had to put it ON
If you get to WI day w/o a loss, it is your coaches job to tweak your plan. Sometimes ADDING a packet works, too!

Feeling your frustration...read on...

I'm a little disappointed I don't get a NYE or NYD weigh-in. My friend's scale weighs REALLY heavy and since I've been OP, I know I haven't gained & it is calibrated way different than my clinic. Oh well...trust the protocol and wait til 1/7...:?:

Until then, I'll be jealous of everyone's great WIs! Congrats to all!

I've scheduled w/my coach to go twice monthly but I'm not sure I can take the anticipation...

:newyear:
I'm peeking again...Caught me..LOL I've just been cooking with it and only sometimes putting it on things. I guess I'll just swallow an extra teaspoon everyday to make sure I'm getting that. Can't hurt any :)

bubbleblower....dreams can sure seem REAL!!! i had food dreams early on, but thankfully no longer do they haunt my sleeping mind! hahaha

still reeling from being sick. i am such a wimp when it comes to being sick! oooh sickness be gone!!! i need the color back in my rainbow!!

Oh my Rainbows sick!!!! :hug::hug: hope you feel better soon gf!!!

Religious on IP this entire weekend and no results on the scale....not feeling it today :(

Chin up grasshoppah!!!! There's no choice but to keep plonking ahead. The alternative is to quit and be fat? You can do this, your body is changing on the inside, shifting around so you may not see it on the scale each week!

So happy to see my weight scale smilling back at me this morning! Well, I was smilling anyway. Hope this is the end of my 'plateau'!!! Pretty discouraging to see a lack on movement on that scale for almost 3 weeks!!!! (OK, I might have cheated a bit...who told you?) Haha
But I'm back and very happy today. Hope it's a sign for good things to come.

As the new year begins, I wish you (my 3FC friends) a year of peace, happiness and an abundance of new friends. Every one should be born again on Janurary 1st.
So as we begin this new chapter in our lives, I wish you all the happiness you dream of and all the free time to spend with me on 3FC :-D
♫ HAPPY NEW YEAR ♪

Same to you gf!!! Happy New Year!

thank you!

Hey Texan...DON'T GIVE UP!! You can do this!

Tunafish, you two look GREAT!! Nice work to both of you!

Rainbow...I hope you get to feeling better!

I'm totally going for the the short term goal of 10# by Valentines Day! I hope you all don't mind me just inviting myself :D

I recently started IP - haven't had my first official WI, but i think it will be hard not to look at the scale daily. Right now I'm losing so it helps keep me motivated - esp through the first few days of nausea. Today, I'm feeling better and hope my body fully adjusts soon so I start feeling 100%. I love all your words of encouragement - this is the first place i visit every morning. Happy New Year!

Hi everyone!! Day 2 for me and I had the Wildberry Yogurt for breakfast. This is the first time having it so I am not sure, but does anyone else find it very foamy? Should I let my yogurts and drinks sit for a bit before I eat them... would that help? I found the same thing happen with my Peach Mango drink.

Thanks for your help and congratulations on all your achievements this year!! I can't wait to see what 2013 has in store for us!!

Sweetpea--the WBY is my go-to breakfast. I make it with almost 8 oz water as I like a little on the thinner side. It does get a little foamy, but not too much. I also take my time drinking it...about 30 minutes...so that probably helps reduce any foam.

Down 1.4 at WI this am. Was expecting a little more, but TOM came this morning, so that probably had an impact.

Just had the best lunch-- chopped romaine salad with red onion, lots of broccoli, mozz/parm/romano flavored veggie shreds, IP BBQ soy nuts, and champagne vinaigrette. So yummy!

Some clinics will take u without another startup cost...I think they like stealing clients. Can't hurt to inquire.

Gotta luv that half-way point! I think I'm there, too...no WI til I get home & back to clinic, tho

That's what I do...shake it up, go do something else for 10-15 min before drinking. Either that or I just add more water when I'm done drinking it to "rinse out" the foam

Happy New Year Everyone!!

Kids are great! My 8 year old son tells me every few days how wonderful of a job I'm doing on my diet. Yesterday he was eating some M&Ms from his Christmas stocking and said "I sure wish I could share these with you, mom, but I know they're not on your diet plan." Then he said, "I know it's hard passing up treats like this especially around Christmas time, but look at the trade off...you are adding years on to your life!" How can I fail with support like that!?!

A1Texan Thought of you last night when I made red pepper salsa. I sort of made it up and thought, I bet this is somewhere on 3FC and what would A1Texan do???
FutureFitChick I have found a few great recipes on Pinterest. I am DEFINITELY making the Roasted Cauliflower with red pepper, lime, and cilantro tonight YUM YUM!!! I am also making a IP friendly pork roast with a recipe I saw on Pinterest. It's a lot easier to navigate then the recipes here.

We have kept the pharmaceutical companies in business in this house this holiday season. I was sick, still on cipro, and then my beautiful daughter, who NEVER gets sick, got strep and the rash that goes with it. She still has the rash so we have to start a new antibiotic tomorrow. She looks so pale, not herself. And all she wants is DADDY which is driving me nuts.

I am feeling better, back to drinking my 64oz plus water a day and have an appetite. Back to work tomorrow. All this unexpected illness has set us back so (back to Pinterest) I have been pining my gift goals and ideas instead of wanting to buy them.

Also started to crochet to keep my mind off food. Now that I have my appetite back I am STARVING. I totally suck at crochet, but it's keeping me busy.:dizzy:

Anyone notice all the diet adds on TV the past few days??? I keep thinking we are so not there people!! We all survived the Holidays already ahead of the game!! I know I have Scorbett and all of you to be thankful for that!!!

I am able to walk without a crutch around the house but still use one crutch most of the time. I actually went to the store today (my son drove me- he was getting new sneakers!) It kinda made me tired. I get to go to PT at my clinic next week. I'm rocking this recovery! I'm determined that 2013 is my year! It's already 2013 in New Zealand!

We got pounded with a snowstorm here - in 24 hours we got over 36" of snow! Hopefully we're done for a while....

Quiet evening in with the fiancé, his stepson and his gf.... hoping there's a couple of good movies on tv!

Had a bit of a stall last week, but the scale seems to be moving again. Pretty sure the weight moved around, because my smallest pants are falling off now... Need to go shopping!

He cleaned it for me. (I do clean my own lobster but since I just made dinner for us tonight and for tomorrow already, it was his turn.

Hey IdealProteinNewbie: here ya go! I'll take some with the "before" shirt when I get home. Pants are FOUR sizes smaller! Today's shirt didn't even fit in July.

I still need to update my avatar. I'll do it next time we go out & I do hair & makeup
