Good luck to everyone on the upcoming weekend!

Finally found today's thread!!

Happy Friday to everyone,

Had WI#7 today and happy to say that i lost 4 lbs this week. Most of it was weight that I put on last week after i had a cheat day (not happy/proud about it) but I'm focused now. So i finally hit a new decade and have 7 lbs to go. So excited to start this last stretch of phase 1, so this week I'm going to try the strawberry pudding I just hope it taste as good as it sounds/looks as well as the tomato basil soup i just need ideas to make it.

Well I hope everyone has a great and safe OP weekend!!

Welcome! I think somewhere on here I read that you can cut some of the pills in half....hopefully someone more knowledgeable will chime in.

I only have trouble with the pills when they slip sideways.

I wished I had taken pictures from the start...they took a picture at the clinic but I'd like a more "real" one. Oh well, I can start now, right?

Good luck to you!

For the strawberry pudding, I make it into a shake using 10oz of water then add a few ice cubes in the blender so that it is think. I also put some of the WF strawberry syrup in it. Add a little Chocolate WF syrup and it taste like chocolate strawberries....YUMMY!!!

Yum! I'm going to try this. I have a hard time with the texture of the puddings. I have to force myself to choke it down because that is what I chose for my IP meal and I don't want to waste one.

I just finished my 4th week and at WI today I'm down another 4 pounds. So at the 4 week mark I've lost 19 pounds and 13 1/4 inches. Can I say one more time, "I love this diet."

However I am still having a lot of problems retaining water, so my coach suggested not eating the soups anymore and stop the sea salt for a week and see if that helps. She said she can tell by my swollen ankle and when she measures my BMI each week I show very hydrated, which tells her I am retaining water. When I diet I really don't eat much processed foods so I have no swelling issues, but not only are the IP foods processed, but the sodium count is a little high in some of the products. But both of us agree that this problem should go away as I loose more weight too.

My other issue is while I've lost 19 pounds, my BMI doesn't want to seem to move, and I have lost a little bit of lean muscle tissue. My coach said before I started my lean muscle mass was really good so I'm okay for now, but she really wants me to make sure I don't go longer than 4 hours between eating protein, which I have been guilty of. I love the weight loss, but I really need to get this BMI going down too.

By all means ditch the soups and anything else that's high in sodium. Add mushrooms, asparagus and raw onions, and any other natural diuretic vegetables you can think of. As to lean muscle mass, etc., unless your coach is using a VERY sophisticate calculator for percentage of lean muscle mass, I THINK, what she may be using will be inaccurate given the excess water. Please check this out, OK? I'm not saying that you haven't lost muscle mass; just that you should get a second opinion, so to speak.

Edit: Regardless, your losses are fantastic.

That's funny I live in Alberta now and I was thinking no they don't. Then I checked my license and realized it is on there. But it is in kgs so I never paid any attention to it. Now I'll have to check that in pounds. But I probably lied to them about it is the first place anyway .
