Am i just obsessing or have i truly ruined my week???? I guess i will see on tuesday at my weigh in


I will of course double my water intake for the rest of the week now....
Why so extreme? And there's no "of course" about it, unless you're only drinking about 60 oz of water a day. Sheez. Why kick yourself from Jersey to Hawai'i for just a few drops of half and half? I'd try a more conventional route out of Newark.

Carla, thanks for mentioning the inspiration thread in the daily chat. I would not have known about it, because I usually don't go to the new post section very offen. I go to my favorites, pull up the last chat I looked at and move on to the next ones from there. Have a great day. Judy

Linden, your favorite quote is so true, I dearly love your second favorite. Great advice.

Jules, I have been told by my dr. that when you increase water you have to increase salt. By the way I don't think it would take that much water to wash away a little half and half. I think stay on plan and let the chips fall where they may next week, it may not be as bad as you think. If you have followed my posts over the past months you know I believe in following the plan, but sometimes things can't go as planned, so be a little flexable, that's called LIFE. You have a great attitude and you will obtain your goal and more. Judy

Just have to tell everyone how proud I am of myself...Had a bridesmaid luncheon today at Olive Garden--- all the other bridesmaids ordered pasta I was the only one who order a skewer of dry grilled chicken and veggies hold the potatoes....YUMMY they all shared a big dessert plate...I skipped it came home and had a chocolate shake! O and I wore jeans that I havent had on since before I met my boyfriend 2 years ago!! I was surprised no one pushed me to eat any of the junk they were eating or the breadsticks thank goodness

A little funny to share today...

My secretary left the office for lunch and came back with some food from Panera's...she knows I'm doing IP and sees what I regularly eat and the conversation went something like this...

"I know you have to eat veggies, and I know you've been craving something warm...and when I saw they had veggie soup today, I just knew you had to have it. I asked what all was in it and I think it will work for what you need..." And she had this huge smile on her face..

The soup was pretty good...the worst part was that it had barley? in it. Since I'm currently on the alternative plan for phase 1 it all works out ok. She was so cute and excited about finding the soup and working to be supportive of what I was doing (she's been a great cheerleader) that even though it wasn't totally on protocol, there was no way I was not eating that soup

I guess it feels good when you have people trying hard to be supportive...a nice change from what I have experienced (and others too).

Have a good weekend everyone!

NSV alert! WOOT WOOT! I had to by tights/pantyhose over the weekend and stood in target staring at the sizes. Usually I was a 2x from Just My Size. I had to stop and think about what size I should get. I ended up buying a large from hanes. Today I wore a skirt, pulled them out of the packaging and thought, oh no, these are not going to fit! Well all, they fit....such a wonderful feeling! Yeah !!!

I had a similar experience to this last night! I attached a picture of the "birthday cake" that my family group from church had for me last night. I felt so loved that they were trying to be supportive of me!

You should try their grilled salmon too - it's amazing.

Hi: I'm glad to see that you are aiming for the weight I was thinking. We're the same height and I was thinking that I was pushing for too low a weight for my height.
I'm a little discouraged lately because I am a slow loser. However, I have been on the diet for 4 weeks and have lost 13 pounds, which is wonderful. I'm into a smaller size jean. But I'm stalled at 153 for about 4 days. I'm almost ready to quit because I have had a cold for a week, and I thought it was gone until tonight it seems I now have swollen glands... yiks..

Gaile,

It isn't mine. It was shared freely with me on another diet forum and marked as anonymous. I think it would be great to share it with your friends!

Awww!

I'm glad you like the poem. I read it the first time when I was trying a different low GI, High Protein program. Back then I didn't get the meaning. I thought "that's sweet!" Six years later, as I couldn't lose even ONE pound, I came across it again and thought, "YES!". That was a week before I learned about IP and when I started this, I thought I would do anything if it just move down 1 pound a week. For some people, that really is the best we can do all the time and for other people, it is all they needed to do that week.

I know how that moment is. Only in a different way. As I was cleaning out my closets and drawers, I found several pair of yet to be used pantyhose and stockings. As I put them back in the drawer I thought "what are you doing?? I don't think they will work anymore." Just to be sure, I tried them on. Talk about having elephant ankles!

You are NOT a slow loser! You are a normal, average loser. Most people lose 12 to 15 pounds a month which is a nice healthy weight loss! Your body will slow down to heal and as it does that your fluid volumes change. Just take care of yourself and once you are over the cold, the weight loss will come back.

Be kind to yourself. The weight loss is a much lower priority for your body right now.

Have some hot tea, snuggle up with a warm blanket and, get lots of rest.

ALSO, boost your vitamin C. We don't get enough on this diet. Try to get about 4000mg while you are sick. You will be able to tell if it is too much. As a body reaches its tolerance level/need level for vitamin C you become a bit gassy or have a loose bowel movement. If that happens just back it down by 500 or 1000mg and you will be at the right level for you.

Feel better soon!
