Since BACKDROPsilhouette shared her jars on yesterday's thread, I figured I'd share mine too.

Hopefully that shows up okay. It's been a very long time since I've used my photobucket account and I've never linked a photo here before. Thanks to Wuv for posting the inspiration. It was an easy project and I'm looking forward to having something tangible to move the pounds around. Especially since I don't really see or feel a difference yet. This helps me to "see" a difference and keep motivated.

Morning all

Happy IP OP Saturday,

Day 3 for me and yesterday was a little like a train was smashing through my skull, had a massive headache which persisted for most of the day, ended up taking some Advil to clear it at 5pm, however 100% on plan with the diet and i am very happy with that! Never once thourght to get something OP with carbs!. I cheekily jumped on the scales this morning looks like in 2 days I've lots about 4.2 pounds!

So far loving this diet, and I'm not feeling hungry between meals and I'm looking forward to the food

Happy OP Weekend to all

Cheers/S...

I am back! Sometimes we have to learn the hard way. For several weeks I ate everything I wanted and more.... I learned I did not feel good and felt sad that I was gaining weight. Well this week I went back on the program and feeling better and getting closer to my goal. It is all a learning experience. It is important to know that it is ok to make a mistake.... Can always regroup and start again.

Good morning! I have a dinner I have to go to tonight, I WILL stay OP, not an option! Question, on my list of proteins it doesn't list Prime Rib as one? Does anyone know if Prime Rib is OK? I'm just worried it's maybe too fatty? Thanks!!!

Its been a while...

I lost 1.6lbs on my WI, and no inches. But I'm not worried because I know its from TOM bloating and water retention. So I'm still good.

Yesterday, my mom, sister, and I went to Perkins so I made sure I was prepared for the restaurant. I didn't get what I had planned, but still stayed OP. I had an omelet with spinach, tomato, and mushroom in it. Approximately 2oz of meat, and steamed broccoli (no butter!) I also enjoyed a very lovely cup of coffee, with a lovely glass of water. All OP. YAY!

I also had a NSV, my sister ordered a double chocolate muffin. I looked at what was my fav muffin and felt nauseous. I'm very proud of myself!

Way to go Emily! Don't NSV's like that make you feel so much better than eating the muffin would have? It's such a mindset I find you just have to get "in the zone" ! LOL

Well, this is Day 6. I haven't had an official WI but I am down 7.5 pounds on my scale. I feel so much more energetic. I am still struggling to get in all the vegetables and I still have a rash (it's going down). Seeing the numbers drop so quickly is such a motivator. I hope I can keep the momentum.
I enjoy reading all your posts and have gained so much more insight already. Have a great Saturday!
