Good Morning.
It looks like I am the first one, today. There is a reason for this: I was unable to sleep because I felt I needed to make a decision about IP. Got up about 30 minutes ago with the decision to do it on my own. So be prepared to see lots of questions from me in the near future. I already have an IP folder on my desktop where I store all the great info I find on here. I have about 2 weeks worth of products left and since I do mostly RDT shakes, I don't anticipate too much of a problem.
Wishing all of you a great OP day

Good morning all! I hope we all have a wonderful day. I plan on giving it my best shot. I have been reading many of the threads on here and find them very helpful. It has been well over a year since I was on plan so it helps to read in order to refresh my memory. Thank you all for the encouragement!

I second that!!

Wow... I can't believe I am working in a daycare. Its not too bad actually. The babies are easiest to take care of, because as long as they get a bottle, food, and a clean diaper they are good to go. The toddlers on the other hand... I'm surprised the lead teacher hasn't gone crazy! She has to watch 20 toddlers.

I like it though. I leave at the end of the day feeling like I accomplished something. I never felt that before at any of my jobs.

However, I need to recommit myself to IP. I'm falling back into my old habits with my new job as an excuse. THERE IS NO EXCUSE. So, today is a new day 1.

Good morning everyone, hope you have a great day! All you can do is one day at a time. If today wasn't good start fresh tomorrow.

GL to you!! I have totally been there and glad you were able to make a decision you are comfortable with! I will say I was able to enjoy IP more when I wasn't worried about the cost as much and didn't feel guilty opening a packet. Definitely read all the way through the alternative products thread, there is tons of good information!

That's awesome you're enjoying your new job. I take my son to the local daycare (they have a drop in service) one morning a week for 2-3 hours and I can't believe how well those teachers have it all together. It's amazing.

Good morning everyone!!

Congrats to all those yesterday with SVs and NSVs!! Oh, and I'm glad that my Dave Ramsey / debt analogy made sense to some of you. It was one of those things that sounded great in my head, but was awkward when I was trying to type it out. I haven't been having any computer time in the afternoons / evenings because hubby is finishing up his semester of college classes and has been on it working. I do read everything the next morning though to get caught up!!

Busy day for me today. That's why I love the IP program. I have everything all dished up and measured out so there is no question about what I will be eating. I'm also not sitting at the computer messing with my daily 'schedule' like I did with WW and calorie counting so I can fit the most junk possible in my day without it affecting my numbers. That's where the strictness of IP is really amazing.

Question for some of you though, have you ever been to Bonefish Grill on IP, and if so what did you get? I'm going this weekend and was just going to get some plain grilled fish; however, I was looking online and it looks like the Chimichuri sauce is totally IP approved. (http://www.bonefishgrill.com/our-menu/grilled-fish/) They even have a link to a recipe to make it at home and it looks fine. Thoughts?

Hope everyone has a great day!!!
