I didnt see a P1 thread so I started one.
Tomorrow will be my first day and I am going to need a place to rant and rave threw my cravings and feelings.
So I hope some of you will join me on this 2 week journey; I am guessing it may be a bumpy ride!

I am going to de-junk my house; or atleast try too. My husband has some sweet food I cannot trash; so I will have to work around that!

here we goooo.....:carrot:

I"m with you! After screwing up today, I'm looking at tomorrow as a fresh start on phase one again. Tell your hubby to hide those foods!
Just think by next week you can post a loss! Keep your eye on the prize!

I'm with you both too, today was a bad day for me. I was in a bad space mentally I guess and first thing I did was look for something sweet, so I ate a quaker granola bar and for supper was planning on skipping it, since I felt so guilty and ended up eating 3 hamburgers, all plain, just 9 oz of meat :barf: so I was contemplating eating some cookies and just starting all over tomorrow, but I'm not going too. We can do this. Let's start afresh tomorrow. I'm going to make my lunch, 2 cups of salad greens with some tuna and some celery and cream cheese sticks for snack.

We *can* do this.

:hug: ty for keeping me motivated

Hi everyone!
How was your day.
I had a problem logging in this morning and afternoon?
For some reason it would never load.
Anyone experience this?

Hi Tree :wave:

My day was good kept carbs to 14 and doing ok. How are you doing?

After my carb binge last night I woke up feeling so much guilt, then I just decided to be determined and stick with it :)

So far so good, we can do this.

Sorry to be MIA.
I am starting tommorow.
I have had the flu and have not been on the net.
I really hate feeling like that!

I have cleared out my home of junk and will start phase one in the morning.

I have been doing good today; but NOW my cravings are doing overtime!
I feel like I could eat a WHOLE CAKE.
This is really tuff!
And it is only day one!:(

Sorry, I have been mis too, computer problems!:mad:
Anyway, I think I'm doing pretty good this week with induction. I've had to work hard to keep my veggies down. I never measures before thinkin, "ahh this looks like enough" and low and behold once I did measure I was way off! So now I have cut back. I'm still hungry tho and I'm not turning the ketosis stick purple! It keeps coming up "negative" but I've heard a lot a different theories about that so I'm not too concerned there. I also will not weigh myself until next week because I think I expect too much, get dissapointed and then crash! So for now I"m feeling pretty good, had to keep pulling my pants up all day! I'll just go with that for now.;)
have a good night

treecricket - I know what you mean. This is why everyone says to clear the house of any temptations. I literally tried to sleep off thefirst few days! I figured that way I didn't have to think about it. I had a bad headache too so it wasn't that hard. Just hang in there! it will pass. THis morning I went to Dunkin donuts for my kids and I thought, no way, I'm finished now! But you know what, it totally didn't bother me. In fact I just felt all bloated and stuffed just looking at those things! Yep, I couldn't believe it but that's what I thought! So see, there is light at the end of the tunnel, just keep going forward!

I know that I am way off, but just getting over strep throat and will be starting induction over tomorrow. You ladies are doing well, just keep up the good work.

It's day 7 of 14 for me and I have finally broken my 150 plateau! Barely....but's it's been broken. I am so motivated. I just want to stay in the gym all day now. I am 1 pound away from being at my high school weight and only 9.9 from being at goal. I love this diet only because I feel like I'm not on a diet. Good luck to you ladies that are starting phase one again.

What do you do after induction? I'm scared to death that I'll gain my weight back....
