Just now thinking back over all the diets I've been on, I have NEVER lost 6 LBs in one week! Even on Atkins, South Beach, with their promises. I have a new best friend - IP!
AWESOME! WAY TO GO!

Good Morning everyone. I am pleased this morning, I was able to fit in a pair of jeans that in past months my belly would fall out of them (LOL) Today I put them on just to see if they would fit better.
OH YEA
I put them on with a little room to move!!! I am really pleased with that.

I've already eaten all of my calories for today, this week, and the next couple of months. My body needs that time to burn them all off, and then I can start again with a much more moderate plan that works with my body. I will never go that far 'in debt' again.
NavyMommy - I think this way too! YEARS of eating too much and whatever I wanted was like charging on a credit card. Now, I have to pay it off. And that just might take some time! I will get there - and IP is the way to pay it off FAST - no minimum payments!

Praying for good results on your test.

Happy hump day everyone. I hopped on the scale (well not actually hopped, more like stepped gently) this morning and I'm thrilled to say unofficially I am now in onederland. However WI isn't till next Tuesday and I will be away on vacation, so will have to wait till the following week for the balloons and confetti at my clinic when I step on the scale again.

I feel like trying something new today. Do any of you make a spinach chocolate shake out of a packet? Which packet? How much spinach? fresh or frozen? mix in a blender? how much water? ice? I've never made anything like this before, but feel it might be a new way for me to get my veggies in! Thanks!

Someone on here, I think it's NavyMom made one. If it were me I would just take a handful of fresh spinach and add it to a chocolate pudding mix. When I make my pudding shakes I add 5oz of water and 8 ice cubes and put it in my magic bullet. It comes out nice and thick the way I love milk shakes. If you like shakes on the thinner side just add a more water and less ice cubes. I'm assuming you can't taste the spinach in the shake?

Good morning everyone! Navy mom, I loved your analogy! I think it struck a cord with many of us.
I am traveling to Twin Falls, (about 4.5 hours away) to pick up my Mom who is coming to stay with me for a few weeks. Should be fun. Hopefully the weather will cooperate!
Have my lunch and dinner packed in the cooler, ready to stay 100% OP!

A great day to all!

I do it with the vanilla pudding and a handful of fresh spinach. (you can even add a little splenda. It comes out green (so I feel healthy) but you can't taste it! I do it all in my ninja chopper/blender and usually 10 or 12 oz water, but I like them as drinks not thick shakes

Weigh-In#3 this morning and I lost 5lbs! (or as I like to think of it, one of those gross fat models)

I have never done this with IP packets, but I made/drank green smoothies daily for months. Wash fresh spinach, (maybe just try 1 cup if it's your first time), add it to chocolate shake with ice. Will make the shake greenish but really can't taste it. I used to get my kids to drink it with fresh pineapple... Bright green but delicious!! .

PS will definitely help if you have a good blender...

Praying for you today. I'm praying for a NED for you.

I'm believing for the manifestation of your healing to take place. God Bless
