I finally have internet at home again! I need to get busy unpacking more boxes, but I'm looking forward to stopping back in tonight and actually being able to comment on posts. I did take a minute to update my weight tracker. The last time I updated it was 8 pounds ago! Hope everyone has a great day!

One more thing..... Thanks to everyone for the congrats and celebrating with me on making it into Onederland.

FYI:

blue sky Free soda from whole foods:

zero net carb
zero cal
zero sugar
sweetened with stevia
does have citric acid BUT its next to the last ingridient

Also a friend of mine just brought me a very full bag of muscle milk from costco, he said he mixes it with unsweetened soy milk and its very yummy.

also: as I have not bought any news clothes and my pants kept falling down, today I wore a belt! feels good but one more thing I have to deal with prior to restroom.

Has he been gone the whole time you've been on IP? He's not going to recognize you! You look fantastic!! Congratulations!!!

I was thinking on my way to work this morning...I'm a little bummed because I have to weigh in today and I've pretty much stalled this week so I'm prob not going to see a loss at all today. But then it accurred to me, I've lost almost 20lbs in a month and a half...that's something to be pretty frickin' proud of! This week may be a wash, but next week....look out 140's !!!

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians out there!! (heehee, nothing says Canada Day like dancing broccoli!!)

Sorry what does the EAS stand for and where can I buy them in canada? I like the idea of mocha and strawberry? Do they come in those flavours?
Coughs - I think fishermans freinds are sugarfree or they have a sugar free version and I think buckleys cough has a sugarfree mixture, I think diabetics can use them if I am not mistaken have to check with father in law ask at the pharmacy. I would use sparingly, maybe make a drink with lemon and hot water sweeten with splenda or some IP maple syrup or WF syrup? Help coat you throat? Not sure if any of those suggestions help, oh yes and vitamin c not the chewable ones... I had a cold about a 6 weeks ago... warm salt water gargle helped me also

Anyway, glad to be home and able to "chat" with y'all!
Sorry to hear this was a rough week! I am glad you were prepared in the event they didn't have something you could eat! 140's!! Ahhh... if only I were there with you! You must feel great! Congratulations on where you are so far, let us know what you decide about the goal adjustment!

I am probably heavier than three weeks ago but don't care. Sorry to bring sadness to every ones' celebration of their weight loss and victories.
Take care.
I am so sorry! I understand about the loss of a mom. I lost mine 5 years ago last week. We were very close and not a day goes by, still, when I don't miss her. My deepest sympathies.

It sounds to me like you should be grateful that boss of yours only gave 2 weeks! You will be done with him soon enough and, I hope, that will make your life easier!

Mono.... I remember that! I had it as a sophomore in high school, so did 2 of my 3 sisters. Isn't it great how we teenagers share everything we drink! NOT anymore! LOL... I was ill for almost 2.5 months and missed an entire summer. Fortunately it didn't effect the school year. One of my sisters was hospitalized she was so sick. We have pictures of her and she looked so pale. I think it was worse for her because she had asthma and the breathing was such an issue. The other sister, they couldn't get a positive test on her so she was sick for quite awhile until the figured out what to do. She missed about 7 months of actual school and was home schooled. All in all, we ended up good without any problems. It was hard on my mom though. I am so sorry that your family is dealing with it. Hopefully, he will bounce back soon and get to enjoy some of the summer!

1 pkg. shirataki angel hair "pasta"
2 eggs
sliced mushrooms
chopped green peppers
chopped onions
1/3 c. pizza sauce (I found some that had no added sugars, or you could make your own)
garlic powder to taste

Prepare shirataki per package directions. Sautee the mushrooms, peppers, onions, and whatever other veggies you want to throw in. Lightly beat the eggs and mix in garlic powder, sauteed veggies and shirataki. Pour in casserole greased with Pam. Top with pizza sauce. Bake at 350, about 1/2 hour, or until eggs are set. If you can afford the extra fat/cals, you can top with veggie shreds cheese in the last 5 minutes. This would also be good with a little spice added in.
This recipe sounds YUMMY! I will have to try it this weekend! Have you put it in the recipes thread yet? I am sure several people would love to have it down the line.

I wonder if you can use the walden farms marinara in this and make it taste "ok"?
