Hi,

I am going to go to New York for dinner for Valentines Day. Can I have shrimp or lobster with cocktail sauce and still be OP? I was looking at the restaurant menu and there are not too many appetizer choices.
Thank you:)

Cocktail sauce is usually made with ketchup and horseradish so I would say that might be a no-no. You might try making your own with some WF ketchup at home and taking that with you. Absolutely NO drawn butter with the lobster though.

I agree. Take some WF ketchup and ask for horseradish at the restaurant and mix up your own there. It's too tempting to add garlic butter to the lobster...yummm

Do any of you ladies take some type of appetite suppressant with the IP program?

Last year to get in shape for my wedding I was on phentermine and a low carb diet and the weight just fell off. Wondering if I should try something like that again?

Anyone else out there taking anything of the like, natural or otherwise?

Nope - Ketosis is an appetite suppressant.

You cannot "speed up" the weight loss on IP - it is fast enough on its own, while still being safe for your body.

I agree with Scorbett, no appetite suppressant is needed. And the weight does comes off amazingly fast on its own.

I think one of the great points of IP is learning what is real hunger and what is mental hunger and learning how to deal with both.

So my sister in law took me to Marshall's yesterday while we were getting post-storm supplies. I decided to try some stuff on, just because I don't really know what my size is at this point. Tried on some size 12 dresses - too big! Tried on some size 10's....a few fit loosely, but others were still TOO BIG!!! So I grabbed some size 8's which for the most part fit. One of the dresses that I THOUGHT was marked as a size 8 was actually a SIZE SIX!!!!!

I know it's cut a little big, and I don't really care if it's vanity sizing - I have a dress hanging in my closet that is a size 6!!!

MY coach is no longer at the clinic and they have no one to do evenings. so - i feel pretty cruddy about that. I wish they had some plan to act on for this situation, oh well. i have lots of food and i will stay on program - when i run out of food i'll get back in the groove.

You can get a home scale, and order IP food from www.plainprotein.com until you figure things out or find another clinic.

Happy Mardi Gras! I'm so proud to say I have not had any king cake or gone OP with all the festivities going on around here. Today is a "holiday" in South Louisiana but I'm at work since it's not a "bank holiday". Someone has to come in and I volunteered. But it's super quiet so that's fine with me. It's easier for me to be at work than at home and stay OP.

Scorbett - Looking great! All that hard work is paying off!

WI today, -2 lbs. I'll take it. We leave on vacation tomorrow. I had an order from nashua shipped to where I'll be staying, and FedEx called last night LOST???? I really hope it gets delivered. It's a rural address and you have to know your way around, especially in the dark. How could they not check that before the delivery person left, especially when he said he was unfamiliar with the area...seriously. Guess I'll pack some extra food in my suitcase just in case they fail to deliver again today...

The most simple, said to be the most traditional, is a ring of twisted cinnamon roll-style bread topped with icing or sugar, usually colored purple, green, and gold (the traditional Mardi Gras colors) with food coloring. They have lots of different flavored fillings. A friend of mine even made a King Cake Cheesecake! I keep telling myself I don't like it and as long as I don't have even one bite I can believe it and make it through the whole season without eating any. But if I have one bite - that's it - I remember how good it really is!

Okay, I'm freakin' out a bit. I ordered all my Alternative products over a week ago from Nashua and have not recieved them yet. I checked the tracking number and they aren't scheduled for delivery until THURSDAY! Ugh...I don't have enough IP shakes/soups to get me through. I'm hoping it will be delivered a day early :-( The delay is due to the storm that hit last weekend.

Scorbett - that dress looks amazing on you!!!

I had my second week weigh-in this morning. I lost 3 pounds and 6 inches.

I was (at first) disappointed with the 3 pound loss. I really thought it should of been more since it was the second week, and then I realized... this is my body and this is what I lost in real fat and to be satisfied with the results!! I had to give myself a mental slap to quit putting such high expectations on myself, stay 100% OP and it will all work out. :-)

Good morning everyone!

ChicagoPhil- you can definitely do this without a coach. You're already in the swing of things and can continue with IP products available online, phase in some alternatives, or do all alternatives and still get the same results. I never had a coach, but with info and help from people on this site, I've been doing this since January 1 with only products I've found locally, and I'm happy with my results.

Scorbett, size 6 is SUCH an NSV... big congratulations!

This didn't get any responses yesterday, so I'm going to try again. Someone mentioned using real salt, and I'd wondered what the difference was between "real" salt and sea salt. The info I found said the only difference was that "real" salt used chemicals in processing, so sea salt had a better flavor. I wonder if anyone knows if that's true, or if sea salt (maybe because of the chemicals in real salt?) causes less water retention?

Im not really a big fan of cocktail sauce to begin with. So if I am going to eat shrim, I use EVOO, lemon, garlic, salt, pepper, and parsley, and it is delish! You could either bring your own little container, or even asked them for half a lemon??

It's a bit confusing, because the sea salt they want us to use actually goes by the brand name Real Salt but it is sea salt. Clear as mud? :) So the Real Salt sea salt is what IP wants you to use because it's 100% natural. http://www.realsalt.com/

You're doing great JuliaB! 3 pounds is a great loss, and 6" is amazing too! When I first decided to do this program, with encouragement from a friend who was doing it, I was hoping I'd have Biggest Loser weigh ins every week. As you can see, I'm not having Biggest Loser weigh ins, but now that I understand that my initial expectations were a bit unrealistic, I'm totally satisfied with the plan and my losses! I'm still losing much faster than I have on any other plan.

scorbett - look at you! Amazing! Isn't it nice to see that number on the label? Woohoooo!!!

WI tonight and I'm expecting another rough one. I don't know what's going on but for no reason I was up 1.5lbs overnight. ACK! Not cool. Basically this means no loss at all for two whole weeks. Which sucks, because I really, really really want to be done but at this rate it'll be a while. A long while if I'm not losing! My coach is away again this week so I won't be able to talk to her about it or do my BCA which is sad but I know it can't be helped.

Sigh. I hate days like these.

Thanks Jen... isn't that interesting that interesting that IP recommends a specific brand, and it's called Real Salt, lol. But reading their webpage, it looks like they are just saying what I read of sea salt in general... that it is natural and unprocessed. I'm pretty sure that I read the ingredients of the sea salt I'm using and it said "100% natural sea salt", because I just bought more and I read the ingredients of EVERYTHING now (who knew the #1 "spice" in Italian sausage was sugar or corn syrup?!?), but I'll check again when I get home. I have no intention of ever going back to table salt (although I grew up being taught that table salt was the only way to get enough iodine in your diet to prevent deficiencies, and that's why salt is iodized) but I'd still like to know if regular table salt causes greater water retention than sea salt due to the chemicals. It sounds like it makes sense, but it would be good to know for sure.

I had my WI this morning, I was down 1 pound and 2 inches. I wasn't expecting a big number, aunt flow arrived yesterday after a very long absence, was actually relieved! I also think all of the shoveling did a number, my muscles are still sore!

Hope everyone has a great day!

I've ordered twice from Nashau so far, and yes they are pretty slow on delivery when you get the free shipping spending more than $99. Keep this in mind and plan ahead when ordering. It doesn't help that I'm all the way on the other side of the country, either lol. :)
Do you have a Costco in your area. Get their Premier Protein RTD chocolate. It's very yummy and has 30grams of protein. I believe the box of 18 drinks is around $25. I have one for breakfast every morning. Or you could get the EAS drinks from wal-mart, maybe even target. I think they come in a box of 4, but I've never had them. I think people on the Alternatives Thread have like them. Good Luck. Where there is a will, there's a way!

I haven't ordered from www.plainprotein for over a month now. I always used my credit card and as far as I know I haven't had any problems. I believe you can get a discount of 20%. At least the few times I ordered, I got it to work. I don't know exactly how much you have to spend, but the discount code was whatever the month is and I don't believe it was case sensitive. So, what I would do is put in a huge order at the beginning, say $200 of one product, then I would apply the discount. If the discount shows up, then I would keep decreasing the quantity until I found the point that the discount no longer was being applied. Once I knew how much I had to spend to get the discount, then I would adjust my order to what I wanted from there. The other nice thing is that I would always get free S&H and I think they use priority mail and so I would get the stuff in 2-3 days. Hope this makes sense and helps! Jen

So the Real Salt sea salt is what IP wants you to use because it's 100% natural. http://www.realsalt.com/

My local grocer (a small regional chain where the prices are a bit higher than the local average) carries Real Salt Sea Salt in a 9oz shaker for $5. And what do we pay for that TINY mini-container at IP?????? Good thing I don't buy it at my WI!!

You're doing great JuliaB! 3 pounds is a great loss, and 6" is amazing too! When I first decided to do this program, with encouragement from a friend who was doing it, I was hoping I'd have Biggest Loser weigh ins every week. As you can see, I'm not having Biggest Loser weigh ins, but now that I understand that my initial expectations were a bit unrealistic, I'm totally satisfied with the plan and my losses! I'm still losing much faster than I have on any other plan.

Thank you so much, RareBird! I really appreciate your comments and I do need to keep my expectations realistic. And yep, I was *hoping* for the Biggest Loser type weigh-ins but reality is, it just isn't going to happen. And I also have a HUGE NSV and that is the fact that I feel SO much better today than I did 2 weeks ago and I'm very grateful for that. :)

I weighed myself over the weekend, and it showed I was 6lbs lighter.. Now it shows I haven't lost anything. My coach thinks it's because my TOM is approaching any day now.
I'm a little down about that. But she said I am making good progress because I am losing inches.

That is awesome Scorbett! Your progress is inspiring! Amazing!

All of you roguettes! That is so awesome! You can do it!- I never had a coach- other than 3FC- so I have always been rogue! hehe.
I do purchase my vitamins on plainprotein with a cc and have never had an issue- free shipping even to ALASKA! wowsa! I get my food from Nashua and Doctorsbestweightloss. Both are great, though no discounts for shipping on them to Alaska. The alternatives are cheaper still- including shipping. I have had the EAS shakes from Fred's or Walmart and Rainbow even has 'ice cream' for it in her recipes!
I believe Real Salt is mined in Utah from an ancient salt mine and has trace minerals that regular salt doesnt have. I read up on their site when I first started. They talk about iodine on that site too if you are interested.
Cheers everyone!

Rainbow,
I was reading the sloppy joe thread tonight and had a thought when someone mentioned making a bun for it using potatoe puree...why not try it with rutabaga slices? Nice thick roasted rutabaga, even if its only the bottom of the sloppy joe (thinki open faced sandwich).

Have you ever made a rutabaga "bread"? What do you think? Anyone else try anything like this?

You will have a stellar second WI. The body keeps accurate track of everything, nothing to worry about, grasshopper!

When I read your comments about using rutabaga slices, I also thought that it would be tasty to shred some rutabaga, mix it with a big of egg white & onion, and fry it in a bit of coconut oil like a latka-type pancake. Some sloppy joe serve on that would be tasty.

You and me both Kileymed! As of yesterday...I'm goin' Rogue also! Like you, I'm a bit nervous, but I know I can do it with the help of everyone here!

Going Rogue...gotta love it!
All the information is right here on these pages :book2:

:cheer3:

You go girl!!! I have tried a few alternatives and like them better than some IP product. Can't give up my S&V crisps though. I am still debating giving the clinic a bye-bye. I still need/want the accountability. We'll see.....

GL! You'll do great!!!

I have learned more information here than from my coach. I am glad to have some rogue buddies here with me and I know I can pick Scorbett's brain :D.

NinjaNurse I agree that some of the alternatives are better. I will miss the chocolate shake but I can always order it with my vitamins if I really think I need it! The local rogue gallery is here if and when you are ready.

Yes I played into this for myself without meaning to. I told them 3 months max on IP, so I have been gradually using alternatives and buying a7 pack from my center each week ( along with my supplements). By next week when I am "done" I can still go into my center once a month for weigh in, in my case it is very close to my office

So my sister in law took me to Marshall's yesterday while we were getting post-storm supplies. I decided to try some stuff on, just because I don't really know what my size is at this point. Tried on some size 12 dresses - too big! Tried on some size 10's....a few fit loosely, but others were still TOO BIG!!! So I grabbed some size 8's which for the most part fit. One of the dresses that I THOUGHT was marked as a size 8 was actually a SIZE SIX!!!!!

I know it's cut a little big, and I don't really care if it's vanity sizing - I have a dress hanging in my closet that is a size 6!!!

Looking FAB Ms Scorbett. Congratulations! :carrot:
