Good grief, Sheila. What ungodly hour do you get up? Regardless, thanks over and over again for doing this. And good morning to you as I say good night.

Morning!

I started on Friday, November 12.

I'm currently doing the alternative version of IP and I am loving it!

I bought Calcium/Magnesium/Potassium supplements and a multi-vitamin liquid capsule at the health food store yesterday. I'm feeling great

This morning I am down 10 lbs! I don't care if it is all water weight - I'm happy and ridiculously motivated!

It took me almost 2 months to loose that much on my own "low cal" diet 2 years ago.

I tried the crispy turnip fries recipe for lunch yesterday - they were pretty much the opposite of crispy. I will try 2 cookie sheets next time so they aren't over loaded.

I'm gearing up for a trip to Philly for a Face Painting convention on Thursday - Sunday of this week. My biggest goal is to head out immediately and find the fresh veggies in the area and take them back to the room. I need to have a water bottle with me at all time too.

Thanks everyone for all of the support!

~Michelle

Going for my WI today. Hoping it will be a good one.

I also tried the turnip fries and they were less than crispy, but they did taste good. I'm wondering about cooking them under a broiler instead of the oven, or a combination of both. I also tried mashed celeriac. I was pleasantly surprised. The celery taste was not overwhelming. I did not use cream or butter, but did use fresh garlic, salt and pepper.

I did not get a chance to try the WF peanut spread. (I think I am mentally putting it off as my initial taste was less than appetizing) I did make the crepe "crackers" and those were really good. I should have sprayed the foil with a little Pam, as I spent a lot of time peeling the foil from the bottom. The cauliflower "spanish rice" was very good. I made tacos and used lettuce leaves as my tortilla.

Congratualtions Leigh!!!! Very exciting news for you and your family.

Hi everyone! I had one heck of a reality check yesterday! I turned on my Wii which I had not touched for probably 4 months now. Figured I would do 20 minutes of Yoga. Well when I weighed myself I found that I was still 3 KG over what I was the last time I stepped on it... even with the 15 pounds I have lost in the last 3 weeks! Wow! I think I was in denial about how I had just let myself go in the last while... lots of personal crap and a slight situational depression! But holly crap! It is amazed the damage you can do to yourself in 4 months when you stop caring! Happy that I am getting things in percpective and like I said what a reality check. I think I must have spent the last 4 months never looking directly in the mirror.

I am definatly feeling so much better these days then I have in a long time.
