I use EAS shakes and bars, they are a fraction of the cost of IP products and I've had a lot of success.

Phase 2's going well so far, the weird thing is that I started to lose faster than I have in a long time as soon as I started. I don't know what that's all about, but I'll take it!

Bars aren't evil. They do, however, contain more carbs than other choices. You shouldn't use them at all in the first few weeks, after that, try them as an occasional item and see how they work for you. Some people are so carb sensitive that they can't have them at all. I have been having one every day for breakfast for the two months. I feel much better the rest of the day if I do, but, that's just what my body needs. Everyone's different.

I'm on alternate products, but try experimenting with different extracts - vanilla, mint, coconut, orange, banana, raspberry...until you find something you like.
Stacey-

I love reading your posts, they have been so helpful to me. Congrats on going to phase 2!!! Hope you stick around here - so many others have faded away. Anyone heard from Kellyrook or Carla?

I used almond extract in my shake yesterday and WARNING a little goes a long way----can't wait to try the coconut extract in my chocolate pudding!!

Today is my 4th day and I feel great! Must have kicked into ketosis I'm assuming. I feel so much better having this daily board to check in with. Thank-you so much to those that maintain this, your AWESOME!

OK ladies just watch me melt away!
Way to Go MJ!!!!

I'm glad you can benefit from my experiences like I have benefited from the experiences of others. This site is such a great resource to have, I'm so glad to have found this group of people sharing the same journey.

Hi All,
Just finished reading the thread. It's been a very chatty, right-back-acha kinda day! Very fun to read.

Thanks everyone for all your support of the 300+ group. It's really appreciated. As far as "baring all" goes, I decided not too long ago that if I want to really be the authentic me, and have others accept that me, then I had to stop "hiding". I joined this forum to get information and support from everyone here, and figured how can you help me if I'm not honest about where I'm at? I saw many others posting their weights and I thought about it and I liked the openness and honesty of it, and I decided to do likewise--and besides, I really, really wanted a ticker!

I had a great day, today! A friend and I went to the beach! Balmy Beach, south of Queen Street, in east Toronto. It was 33C today in town (that's 91F) with high humidity pushing it up over 40C (over 100+F), so we headed to Lake Ontario. I went swimming in Lake Ontario for the first time ever!! And it was excellent! Clear, sweet water, cool and fresh--lovely! I'm really part fish (don't tell anyone), so to live in a city with lots of beaches and not use them is a bit silly, don't you think? I've been here 25 years and this is the first time I've gone in the lake. The beaches used to get polluted with rain runoff, but the city has worked on this problem and now most of the Toronto beaches are International Blue Flag beaches, which means they are rated A+ and the water is clean.

And while I was there enjoying myself with my friend, I kept thinking how different it will be next summer when I am living at my goal weight. Next summer I will be able to walk across the sand without supports because my knees and feet will have no trouble supporting me. Next summer I'll be able to go to the beach anytime I want, even on my own, because I won't need help getting in and out of the water. Next summer I'll have a new bicycle, and be able to bike down to the beach and walk along the boardwalk, instead of driving everywhere because I can't walk anywhere. Next summer I can pack light, because I will be able to sit or lie on a mat on the beach and won't need to bring a folding chair.

Today was a wonderful day, and it gave me a taste of the joys soon to come. Thanks all for being here and helping make this journey easier.

Jackie

Hi, everyone.

Had my Week2 weigh-in tonight - down a total of 9 lbs! Yay, me!

livelaughlove1981 - I've never used creamer in my coffee, but I do like to add cinnamon. Cinnamon is a thermogenic substance - it helps burn calories.

Cptswife - I weigh daily, too. I use it as a tool. If you have a smartphone, you can use this app (True Weight): http://www.madeupsoftware.com/apps/home.html
It calculates your 30-day moving average, plus it graphs your actual weight and your "true weight". As long as the trend is down, all's right with the world.

salesgod - Congrats! Maybe we could have some witty banter about prostates or jock straps. Hmmm... You start!

Kim - Welcome! I usually use the puddings to make shakes - just use more water. Sometimes I add cinnamon, or coffee, or peppermint extract.

Elle - Hmmm...good idea with the almond and coconut extracts. I'm trying those.

Time for me to get moving. Congrats to everyone here, because we're all "losers". Welcome to all the newbies. Have a good night.

~Linda

Here's an article from today's New York Times about losing and retaining muscle mass that might be interesting to you, especially if you're concerned about losing muscle as you get older.

I scheduled a Speedo fitting for next week. Can't wait to get a new one. I'm thinking animal print for sure!

On a slightly different topic, I've had to pee 12 times today and my prostate is killing me!



p.s. Hey svelting! I take back what I said about nookie nights. I've sunk even lower... lol

I know right??!! Being over 300 pds. the thought of weighing like 200 in 5 months really makes me feel motivated to stay totally on track! I haven't seen 200 in over 20 years! 5 months of this to get to that, oh yeah, you bet!

Oh man! You're scraping bottom not, I'll admit, without serious provocation.
How's that for a double negative?

Speedo's and man bra's definitally good for a few laughs and we all need to laugh more. Maybe laughing could be my replacement for good chocolate and buttered popcorn .

I figured out how to put my pic up as an avatar. This is one from a couple years ago when I was like 50 pounds lighter, but I'll be there soon enough right? At my current weight I don't have to many photos just laying around. My coach took one today for a before shot though. I didn't ask to see it, generaly I don't allow full body shots, or I crop them if someone accidently shoots one. Silly vanity!
