This may be a super dumb question:: but what is the possibility that a hot dog with chili is allowed during phase 1??

Our coach has been great - she's called several times and had helpful suggestions. Can't wait for the weigh-in tomorrow and the official results!
You have made it through the roughest part, now its all uphill!!...Good luck on your WI tomorrow!!1

As hard as it is (we all do it sometimes even if we have to stop ourselves in the moment of doing it) you have to stop comparing yourself to others. It really is your journey not theirs.

You're doing GREAT, stay strong!

Hope this helps.
That is a great mantra to remember, thanks for sharing

Having a colonoscopy & endoscopy done this morning (in 1 hour). My gastroenterologist thought it might be a good idea because I have so much inflammation. Most inflammation stems from the gut, so we thought it might be a good idea to check things out before I start the plan.

I'll tell you this....I can't imagine the first few days of IP being anymore difficult than fasting for 24 hours then drinking some nasty stuff (a gallon of it) and spending 3-4 hours in the bathroom! If I can do that, I can do anything, right? Lol
Welcome to the IP family Pamelama, Lots of information, recipes and as you can see TON'S of support. We are all in this together, only thing that might be worse for you is the headache you may get at the beginning but kick that in the tail with 1/2tsp of your sea salt in the palm of your hand, lick it then drink water and POOF!!!...it will go away in 10-15 mins!!...again Welcome and good luck!!

Today, I weighed myself on my old scale at home, I usually weigh myself at the fancy digital scale that I got at my mom's place, I do know that there is usually a difference of 4-5 pounds between these two, so, as I weighed today, I got 198 on my home scale, so... I am thinking that I must be around 203 pounds by now! So finally... I broke the 205! I am almost sure, but will check tomorrow on my mom's scale.

He is very proud of you and so are we!!. You are doing great even though you have had your struggles I give you big hugs for sticking around and accomplishing what you have so far!!!

On the downside my MIL and SIL decided that yesterday would be a good time to put me down and tell me that as soon as I'm done I'm just going to eat the same way I use to and gain everything back and then some or that i'll be eating IP foodfor the rest of my life. GRRRRR! So frustrating but I just said nope. I'm learning how to eat the right way and its never coming back. That didn't seem to help much but Oh well. DH knows i can do this and most of all I know I can do this.!!!! Onward and upward for me! (well I guess I should say downward instead)
Everyone have a great day OP today!!!!!
I agree with Wayward and Marion with this one.....all I will say, cuz I could go on about it as well....lol...most important is both YOU and your DH know you will do it and keep it off...of course WE all know you are going to do it!!

I think that the more you have to lose, the higher the losses are at first. But it looks like the closer you get to your goal the smaller the losses get. But, as Wuv would say, a loss is a loss!!

Good morning everyone!! Had an awesome weekend with my two friends shopping and watching LSU stomp them Dawgs!!
Y'all just make me smile when y'all repeat some of the words I say!!!....At least I know I am making a difference and helping y'all out!!!.....Watched football all weekend myself and MAN was that stadium full and LOUD!! I can't imagine the noise in that place....glad you had fun and got to work out at the hotel.

I decided to put my original start weight back in my signature because I was feeling like I wasn't getting anywhere. I know I haven't been on plan, which is my own fault, but rather than beat myself up, I'm going to remember where I started and that even though I had a bad week or two, I've lost a lot of weight!
Marion, even though you are having a difficult time getting back to the program you have done so well already. You will come to the right mindset again to be able to get the rest off. You have a lot of things going on with you making it a little more difficult to focus maybe, thing will work out for you, just hang in there. And like you said this is for LIFE not just for now YOU WILL GET THE REST OFF!!!!!.....after the holidays maybe it will be a little easier for you but just know that we are all here for you too!!!

Absolutely none. You might squeak by if you could find a hot dog with less than 10 per cent fat (yeah right) with a little home made vegetable chili AND NO BUN. But why sabotage yourself?

Edit: I see Wuv and I posted at the same time. Her's is the better answer.

Well, it wouldn't be the best plan, but if you were to do a kosher beef hot dog you would at least know that it is all beef AND you could do IP chili on top of it. You would be a bit high on your protein, but probably not too bad. It does go without saying that the bun is out of the picture entirely.

As for the chili, I make my own chili with ground beef lots of vegetables and just leave out the black beans I might have added otherwise. I also don't always add tomato because we are limited about how many times a week we should have it. I made a large batch this morning so I can have it this week when I'm at work. It feels like comfort food for me and helps me keep up with a busy schedule.

Hehe, I guess I took a different approach. Wuv and Linden are right though, you can't have a hot dog in a bun and a can of chili on top.

I dont like that kind of negativity. That was a senseless and mean spirited thing to say. I am thinking they are jealous of your success. The best way to shut people up like that is by proving them wrong, which you know you will!!

Default Help!

Please. I've been searching off and on all day for the cupcake recipe. How many variations of cup, cake, site, ideal, protein, 3fatchicks can there be? I'd really appreciate some help. Today's the puppy-for-life's birthday and tomorrow my 3-year old granddaughter and I are throwing a party. (Ok, ok, any excuse for a party.) Help.

Well this weekend i saw my friends that i haven't been able to see since i started the diet. I told my DH that i was afraid none would notice my weight loss, and think I was just be silly by being a picky eater. To my delight, they did notice! Not that it mattered, but it was sooo reassuring. They are my friends, so i do not know why i have been so scared of telling them i am on a diet. But truthfully, i didn't want them to know in case i failed.... I ended up feeling bad of my husband who has lost 15 lbs, but no one noticed. He is doing an alternative IP diet, while i am 100% IP. Here is to a good OP week

Feels good to get back OP. I'm kind of getting to experience a little how maintenance will work this month. After the wedding, I'll be 100% back on until I hit my goal!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Congrats on the fitting!! Your dress is beautiful and you look great!! Keep up the good work!!

Long weekend for me, but that was just because I threw my back out pretty bad. Plus I had to move the neighbor's and my yard one more time to get the rest of the leaves up, shouldn't have done it the way my back felt but at least it's done for the season.

Went shopping with the wife yesterday out of town, the first time since our 9 month old was born, she was all excited.
She tried to get me to take her out to eat after we were done shopping, and yes there is a restaurant with an IP menu there, but I told her I didn't want to start the habit of going out to eat when we are out of town. That was what we always used to do and I didn't want the first time we go out together to be just like before.

She was a little upset, but in the end I think she understood.
I hope everyone has a great day and stays positive and OP!!!!

Trying to stay optimistic about my WI tomorrow, after 3 pounds lost in the past 2 weeks combined, I am really hoping for a better week this week.
But only time will tell.
Hope your back feels better soon! Way to go on changing habits for the better!! I'm sure your wife understands, she may have just been hungry and irritable (that's how I used to get when I was hungry). Good luck with your WI tomorrow!!

Good Afternoon IPers,
This morning I packed all my vegtables for lunch but I neglected to pack my shakes. So I stopped this morning at the grocery store and they did not have my EAS shakes so I grabbed some Atkins drinks, I hope this does not mess anything up.

Congratulations on all the losses on weigh in and the NSV's. I weigh in tomorrow, so we shall see how I did.

Hi! Good to see you got back on track. Honestly, I want to be off Phase I as quickly as possible and cheating will set me back three days (each time) and I don't want to do that... it's great you got back on track! Hope your're feeling better today.. (I'm in week four of phase I.)

I'm in week four of Phase I and I keep having dreams that I'm eating the wrong foods and kicking myself out of ketosis. Most of the times I do it because I forget I'm on Ideal Protein!!! I wake up so relieved to know it wasn't real! One time I had two glasses of wine and was so disappointed... I guess these can be considered IP nightmares!!! LOL

But you could and can see the judgements in their eyes.

My sister is a HUGE supporter/fan of mine, I usually go to her when I recognize I need a specific pep talk. Always, ALWAYS her response is "that's about them, not about you...chin up sista...you got this". So as hard as it is to hear, it truly is about their world and reality. Some people have a fear of sucess within themselves...others have a fear of sucess of those around them.

Chin up sista! YOU GOT THIS!
Great advice!! Love it!!

LOL!! I've had very crazy dreams since being on this plan, but never dreamed of eating anything...this is so funny!!
