Oh that sounds good--I think I will wait to cook mine until you try that so please let us know how it turns out. I am treating my rhubarb like gold--I had to go to three different stores before I found it and it was not cheap not that anything is on this plan.

Yes, I am going to phase out--I was looking at the sheets and it says two weeks phase 2 and two weeks phase 3 so on May 25, I am going to phase 2 and then two weeks later phase 3. I want to be off totally and properly by June 19th for a party I am hosting which includes pizza and some sugar.

I also want to be below 200--hope, hope, hope!!!

TO HOCKEY MOM: So yeah, at 10 pm last night, the OLD me ate a piece of pizza. Ya know, if ya gotta do it, just pull off the yummy topping and skip the carb-loaded crust! The best part is the cheese and pepperonie.

Just a thought: when I'm eating something like an IP pack or a Walden Farm product that isn't just yummy in the tummy, I tell myself how blessed I am to be able to afford these specialty foods. Thank God I'm not eating from a dump like so many folks in other countries. Okay, okay, so I'm givin' a pep talk but seriously, we've got it made if we can afford any of these wonderful foods that will help us lose fat fast while keeping us health. Mmm, mmmm, mmmmm

Penquin! Great job! Those are awesome results!

Canadianmama...like Bevs said, I think that bringing along those healthy snacks will be great. You will be busy, and your body will appreciate the extra fuel. Try and enjoy the day

ckanble.. DK appears to have a much wiser approach to your problem, haha....I have often tried the liquid Magnesium Citrate and but it does work, haha. Just my 2 cents

Lady5andy.. Salut, Le sel de mer est beaucoup mieux pour vous que le sel de table prévue dans les restaurants. J'espère que je pourrait aider

We went for a walk to the hardware store this afternoon and we passed the patio we usually have drinks on and it was sure tempting to go sit down and order a cold beer!

Day 4 for me and I still have loose bowels. I know some of you wish you had my problem but it's funny in the morning I am fine by afternoon my stomach is loud and making noises and has that funny feeling and I end up in the bathroom a couple times. I still have not gotten on my home scale. I am afraid to because if I haven't lost alot I don't want to be disappointed. I am going to try to wait until the 20th on my first official WI and be surprised, hopefully it will be good. Kind of feel in the dumps today and being hard on myself on how I ever let myself get this way to begin with. Sometimes I just am so disappointed in myself. I am not sure I am in ketosis considering I am still starving most of the time. I did Atkins after I had my first DD and I remember not being hungry at all with that diet. Why did I let myself gain all the weight back and then some after I had my other two DK's? Sorry, to be a downer I guess it's just one of those days.

....ugh had a bad bad day. I left work at noon (no lunch) to go shopping and a bagel called my name which I had with a bottle of water. Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy----because I waited too long. Duh......should have taken a salad to lunch or cut up veggies in a ziploc. So you think a good walk will help?? Maybe an extra protein pack tonight.
Hope it doesn't mess up my WI on Wednesday too much.....

don't know if an extra protein pack will help but I know a walk wouldn't hurt specially since I know bagel has too much calories.

I haven't cheated yet but itching to have a drink, have thought about, even planned it out; not sure if I will go through with it.

I don't post often but look forward to reading these messages everyday. I learn so much from everyone and am so motivated by everyone's accomplishments (not just related to numbers on the scale) Tonight I mixed some of the Walden Farms peanut butter with low sodium soy sauce, chopped garlic and the ginger get in a tube. I put the peanut butter in the microwave so it could melt a little and then mix easily with the other items. Once mixed it thickened up and made a good dipping sauce for my chicken and broccoli. It was pretty salty, but very tasty. I love salt!!!

I've been on IP 4 weeks as of today. Had my weigh in on Wednesday and I was down 14 1/2 pounds. I am not sure how many inches total, but my waist started at 32 and is now 28. I feel better than I have in a long time. I think getting off sugar is the best thing I ever could have done and this will hopefully allow me to keep the good habits of healthy eating once I reach my goal.

For all of you in the first few days, I know it's rough but hang in there and keep you eye on your goals and before you know it, it will be a week and will definitely be easier for you. I actually love the structure of the packets and am a little nervous about phase 4,... but have a ways until I need to worry about that.
