Looking forward to another week! I have a busy one ahead of me! I have an interview today and another one Saturday. Wish me luck. I really want the one on Saturday. I guess I will wait and see how things turn out. Please send prayers my way!

Not enough cheers available in the world for your self control -- toward food and, toward , I mean your husband.
don't remember where and who but I read somewhere that someone said to have a protein shake etc 30 mins or an hour before working out. I say NO, have it after. Before, you are going to have some tummy ache. I always have some of my veggies of the day about 2 hours before, that gives me the carb load to be able to work out. Within an hour after working out, I have a protein shake (I add some glucosamine in there too)...that has really helped my body from not being in pain after.
That's interesting. I've filed it away for the day when I'm ready to work out harder than 30-60 minutes of walking. Thanks!
I survived the weekend without a single cheat. ... I've worked too hard and spent too much money to blow it on a weekend. I was at 191 Friday morn., this morn. I was at 188.6; my reward for not cheating.
It's quite a feeling of accomplishment to have held to your commitment, isn't it? And, to have the external reward of lost lbs -- priceless!
I did need an extra packet tonight,(hungry day) so I made it a pudding again.. Feeling shameful I just weighed myself and to my surprize my weight was lower than this morning by 1 full pound( I am always 2 pounds higher in the evening)
Please don't feel shame about having 1 extra packet. You were hungry and you made a GREAT choice to deal with it.
Hubby and I are both doing so great on the IP program. Before we started I always wore my shirt out to cover my belly fat. After just a couple weeks on the program I had to go down a size on my shirts (I wear ladies-style t-shirts every day, and shorts or capris). This morning (for church) I was able to wear a size 12 PENCIL skirt with a cute little sleeveless top. Hubby had to go through the closet trying to find a shirt that didn't swallow him whole! Lovin' it!!!
I KNOW! Isn't it amazing to pull out the "thinner" or "less fat" clothes and have them fit, or even be a bit loose? Have fun playing with new styles with your new bod and new confidence!
My intro pack is done... I weigh in tomorrow... I think I am down 6 pounds or so, which is good I guess. I have to pick all new things to eat. These are the ones I like.. which do you think are best for me to have reguarly? I don't have any nutritional info on any as they came in singles for me to try...
chocolate drink- seems this should be a restricted?
I've kept a couple of higher carb restricted packs (cereal, capuccino, chocolate drink) around for when I might feel a carb craving. Don't know if the omelets will work for you but I really like them. I make two really thin ones in my 8 inch non-stick pan. I actually roll them up and eat them with my fingers.
Gotta get to work! Have a great Monday everyone!

Erin-- bikini pic was so impressive. Not just that you look great but that you posed for the camera... Pitakitten - I'm with you on the thighs. Actually my whole legs. 10 lbs off of each one should just about do it. Oh and the top of my arms too--- maybe 5 for each of them. Why can't we target weight loss?? Linden- you are so right. We will walk like crazy in italy but here's a ??
What to wear for shoes? You look so American in tennis shoes. A couple of years ago in Rome I wore black Merrill sandals. So comfortable but so ugly.
Summer almost over?? This week's thread says August 1. I'm not done with July yet. Can someone please slow this all down??? I love summmmmmmmmmmmer. Cheating tip of the day-- have an extra packet or two if you must cheat. Then it really isn't cheating at all. That is how I've had only 3 cheats in 23 weeks. The other cheats I didn't count were when I had an IP bar or an extra drink-- much easier on your pancreas.
[Week 1/10 lbs-2/4-3/3-4/3-5/3-6/3=26 lbs;7-12=7 lbs;13-18=13 lbs;19-24=12 lbs; 25-32=10 lbs Total = 68 lbs
55 lbs of fat. I lose a lot of weight on this diet, feel great doing it & keep it LOST. And so it is! Phase 2-8/26/2010 (then gained 34 lbs) Phase 1 AGAIN 7/15/2011

Although I just couldn't drag my butt out of bed at 5:30 this morning to go to the track, I still feel pretty good about myself - due mostly in part that I cleaned out my drawers this weekend and I'm wearing a size smaller in top and bottoms today. I wasn't able to zip these capris up before and now they are very comfortable - not at all too tight. So yeah, me! (Can you tell my kids like the Disney channel??)
Anyhoo, I have my second weigh/measure tomorrow evening - wonder if I should start going for that in the mornings instead? With the sea salt, am I retaining a little fluid that I wouldn't have if I did it in the morning?
Congrats to everyone for all their successes and triumphs!! You're all doing great!!
Hello everyone, I have been on vacation the last two weeks and last week was very bad. This past weekend was even worse. I cannot believe myself how bad I have been. Today I feel like crap and have made a promise to myself to be 100% all week. I did not see my coach last week but will see her this week no matter what the scale says !!! You all continue to inspire me and so thankful I can read all your successes.
So I tried my first restricted packet (Maple Oatmeal) this a.m. (middle of my 8th week on IP). My coach let me use her recipe book so I actually used two packets, mixed with 1 large egg white, a little Splenda, and some water to make a batter. Divided into two portions, spread in circles (4" across) on parchment paper and baked at 400 deg for 10 minutes. Ate one with WF strawberry jam...will save the other for next week or give to my coach. I was surprised that it made a chewy satisfying breakfast...thought I might miss my pudding shake but seems o.k. Now I'm praying that all will be good scale-wise this week..
OMG! First weigh in this morning... down 6.5 pounds and 8.5 inches! I feel really great and I even had a few looks as I was walking down the street in my tanktop. I heard I would have lost more if I ate more salad, but I just can't do the salad thing every day especially since I hate the WF dressings ewwww... I am experimenting with vinigarettes but nothing really cuts it just yet. I feel excited about this new week... hiding out in my house has helped LOL. Hope you all have a great week too!
I can't wait for my ticker!
FINALLY! I didn't screw up and post on the old thread, and the only reason I didn't is because you can't anymore. YaHoo!!
NOVAK - Thanks for all the info on the phases. I'm a lot less worried now.
HOPEFULTRICIA - This is getting a little freaky. I'm going to Italy too! But the 3rd week in September. I also have been planning and hoping to reach Phase 2 by then. Which means I have to lose 21 lbs. in 8 weeks.
JORDANA - CONGRATS!!! I spent 6 years on fertility drugs too! No luck. If only someone paid closer attention to my thyroid! Not to mention that all those fertility drugs got me heavy and kept me heavy. However, if I didn't go through all that I wouldn't have my wonderful 7 year old adopted Son. Things happen for a reason. I'm not surprised you were able to get pregnant after losing so much weight.
KELSEY - Just wanted to make sure you know that I responded to you 3 weeks ago, and kept trying.
