Trying to figure out if I did the mini-goal album in my signature correct. Well, gang....I am leaving my clinic...I don't feel supported there, I get so much support from many of you. I am going to move myself to phase 2 so that I can workout more and I am going to buy alternatives.

Stopped by the doc yesterday just to pick up food and he wanted to do another weight in. I was a little nervous since I had just gotten weighed on Monday but found out I was down another 2 lbs. Not bad!

Also bought some ketostix strips and it is showing moderate right now. Think I am off to a good newbie start.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

I am thinking about doing the same thing at the end of the month. I have learnt more on this site then from my coach. I have an internet coach so I don't go see her at all. Everything is email - and I don't really ask her anything because I have read it all here. She just basically sends me my IP packs which I am totally ok with.

It seems like you know the protocol, your body, and are totally determined to get the weight off and maintain it. I think you will do fine with the alternatives!!

ugg - day 2 for me and I'm feeling it. I'm really having problems finding foods that I like. I'm trying the 2nd drink for breakfast and they all remind me of that floride stuff you use to have to swish around at the dentist. It almost makes me gag. I couldn't even drink the one I prepared last night (peach/mango).

So needless to say - I'm starving. I'm seriously thinking of breaking down and having a restricted bar.

Hang in there. When I first started I didn't like most of the foods. Now I have favorites that I really like. The cereal is one of those. At first I couldn't stand it and now I love it. Try adding some extra punch to them with spices. I use cinnamon a lot. I add some decaf coffee to my cappuccino or chocolate drink. On the puddings I dab WF marshmallow. I still don't care for some of the fruit flavored drinks so I pass on those. Experiment and you will find that they are better jazzed up a bit. I really like the oatmeal now too even though it is a resticted. Fills you up! The vanilla RTD is one of my favorites too with cinnamon or nutmeg added to it. I also found by adding some extra water to the fruit drinks made them easier to tolerate for me.

Good luck!

You can mix your RTD drinks with coffee or spiced tea and they are good. I add splenda to them. If you use herbal tea it can count as water, too. I was allowed restricted bars from day 1. They did not slow my weight loss. For some people they do, so monitor it well. For some people they have to change it up a bit to make it work for them. You can try to eat your meat at lunch and a protein packet at dinner. Have you tried the scrambled eggs? I use to cook mushrooms, peppers (all colors), zuchinni, and celery and put the egg packet cooked into it andf that makes a great dinner. Read the recipes and try to find a way of making this work. It is so worth it. Keep coming back!

Hi Slickmouse,

The first few days are definetly the worst. Read posts and recipes and you'll find some ideas you like. I found this site that has a lot of recipes with packets. Some look pretty good. http://www.livewellus.com/resources.html

Good luck to you. Go day by day and make sure you eat what you are suppose to. Your body needs it.

Any tips on getting rid of the saccharine sweet taste in the back of my throat from the chocolate pancakes? By the way, those are gross! Has anyone actually gotten them to come out right? Thanks in advance!

Hang in there....you will be so happy after your first weigh in! I have been doing this for 18 weeks and you will find your favorites and ways to make things taste better. I use the vanilla RTD drink in coffee with stevia sweetened vanilla and splenda. I seriously like it better than a starbucks. If you heat the RTD drink in your mug first, then put the coffee in it is nice and creamy.
Also, try the cereal with cinnamon and ice cold water. It will make you feel like you are eating something. The key is ice cold water, then it's like milk. The cinnamon makes it like a treat.

When you get really hungry drink extra water that will help too.

Best of luck, you can do this!

Talking

After hitting a plateau for WEEKS, my scale is finally moving again. But the real victory is that I just bought size 8 pants (down from size 18). I teach HS and the kids had been bugging me to get smaller pants. Comments almost every day about my saggy behind prompted me to go shopping. Imagine the thrill of skipping size 10 and going straight to an 8! So, even if the pounds weren't dropping, the body shape was. YAY!!
