Porthardygurl -- congrats on all your SVs and NSVs over the weekend. This program really does free you from all the cravings once your body is done with the carb detox. I'm so glad that you are seeing the benefits and having success!

I didn't sleep well last night. I need to shower and get ready to go off to coach meeting. Guess I need to email my order. I will definitely be going to bed early tonight to make up for lost sleep.

Have a good week, everyone!

Happy Monday everyone! Had a pretty uneventful weekend, but did receive my shipment from Nashua Nutrition and so far everything I've tasted has been fantastic! I'm looking forward to being in the 140s this week. I also am going to start walking again in prep for a 5k run in October. I didn't get a chance to read the entire weekend thread so I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and here's to another OP week!! Have a great day everyone!

Good morning everyone.

Pxlkitty4 and petie, me too! I have been wide awake since before 3 am! What was it with last night! lol. Hopefully tonight would be a better night.

Had a great weekend. Stayed OP 100%. Went biking with my husband. At first I told him I wasn't going, but then I LOVE our time together biking, it is very enjoyable. So I told him I would go, but as soon as I felt weak I would return. I went and felt pretty energized. I did an 8 mile loop. Both days. Of course I added an omelet of 2 white egg to my breakfast so I think that might have helped.

In the afternoons we took the kids to the beach and park respectively on Saturday and Sunday, and I did not feel run down or anything. So I was very glad.

Funny thing, I cut myself people watching, lol, well actually more like lady watching, lol. Everywhere I went I was checking women around us out, and there were many in shape women around. I started daydreaming that maybe in six months I be thinner! I hope so.

Still have not step on the scale. I am measuring my successes with how close I have stayed with the protocol. Today is my sixth day and I am going strong.

I still get hungry. But it is honest a goodness hunger. Because I don't crave anything particular, I just want to eat something and not to be hungry. When it is not a meal time, I go for my lettuce without even thinking. I have gotten into habit of cutting and washing my lettuce first thing in the morning and with my pitcher of water I have them in my kitchen counter. As soon as I feel hungry I either go for a glass of ice water or eat some lettuce. Very manageable.

Have a great day everyone.

Jazzie and Caden, me too on hoping to step into the 140's this week!!! Let's do it!

Today was my first at-home, WI. I never thought I'd have the type of success that I've seen here on this support board because I'm getting so close to the end of my journey. What a surprise for me that it actually worked for me, even using the alternative products. My first goal is to see anything under 150 on the scale. My top weight was 249.8 so I'm close to my 100 gone. YAY!

WI #1 -4.6 pinch me please because I just don't believe it.

Started last Monday @ 155, this morning 150.4. So close to my first goal.

Good morning all! I am excited for weigh in tomorrow as the scale is definitely going down here at home. Success breeds success! I like it! I read a new Johnathan Kellerman book yesterday instead of working on my remodel in my bedroom. It was too hot in there! So everyone here is to a good day! I WILL NOT CHEAT, it's not worth it!

Yay for you!!!

I was visited by the whoosh fairy this past week. I was quite shocked tbh. Thought for sure that I'd have a slow week, but hey..Not complaining at all!!!!!!

So, I hit the 50 pounds lost on IP, and I'm only 12 away from goal. Not sure I'll reach it before I have to phase off due to Money issues, but I will still consider my journey a Roaring success, even if I don't hit it.

I contribute my success to all the awesome support here on this boards.

That is so great!!!

So my husband has been wanting to start the diet, but travels all week for work. We didn't think we could make it work. This weekend we scouted our local stores for IP friendly alternatives, and he started yesterday. he lasted 5 hours! He's going to start over this morning with work to distract him from being hungry. Yesterday he was too bored and thinking about it too much - or so he says. Funny thing is, his weight problem is from only eating once a day!!! (and a former Red Bull addict ) So I don't get why he was so hungry! I really want him to stick with it. It would be nice if we could do this together when he is home.

Hay all! Happy provincial holiday to all those who have the day off.
I'm fresh off of my weekend at my friend's house. It was a wonderful visit. I stayed OP for the better part of it, but I didn't get in enough veggies overall. The one cheat meal was nice, but I felt the effects of it after. I was the only one who didn't drink- I was on water and club soda all weekend and it didn't bother me at all. I was OP yesterday and back to it full force today.
Today is about getting ready for my trip with the kids this weekend. Planning, packing, etc. I hope my Nashua shipment comes soon so I have more packets to take along.
I'm looking forward to August and another 10 lbs gone by the time it's over .
