Oh, just a thought - when they give you IV, it appears that the default is a sugar based solution. I asked about that right before they hooked me up, I told them I didn't want any sugar in my body. Of course they wanted to know why, had to get special dispensation from the anesthesiologist and then they used a saline solution instead.

Re wanting to know why and then hearing about IP, it became a point of interest among the nurses and doctors. Naturally they wanted to learn more about it.

Good Morning All,

I am using WF products (I placed a big order online) and it tastes so good I feel scared that I am messing up IP and ketosis but my coach has an order form right in her office said all the products are approved for all phases so I guess my next couple WI will let me know. I hope everyone has a great day. PS look I earned my tracker!!!!

So I’m going to share my VERY dark dirty secret! I have never really counted my veggies! And I have to be honest I have had very good weight loss, 29lbs in 8 weeks BUT I know it could be better much better! So this week I really tried to ensure I counted everything not just eye balled it. So I do have a question…. 1 cup veg is 85 grams right? My coach wasn’t too sure and said to use a measuring cup but let’s face it, there is a lot of room for more in a measuring cup depending on what size the veggies are. I have been weighing mine out at 85 grams yesterday. I think its right but need some experts to ensure me.

Pookie,
Nice tracker! That was fun to put together,wasn't it?

Re WF, some people are highly sensitive to these free additives and it appears most aren't. I'm not sensitive to them and so use as much as I want. Others have only 2 T or less a day of all additives. Just wanted to let you know.

Have a great OP day!

Good morning IP friends! Day two at the water park. I've always taken the kids swimming but usually end up in the pool or ocean with them for hours. The park is quite different. I've been self conscious about not wearing g a shirt in public most of my life. I know I had my fair share of looks and smirked yesterday but I keept thinking a month ago and 50 pounds ago it would have been much worse. The trip and wait up the 4 flights of stairs for the waterslide was no problem. The ride down slide was another thing. It was fun and terrifying at the same time. I was 20# overweight for the ride but went anyway. I lost my tube in the dark half way down. I promised my 9 year old son I'd go once more today. I will hold on better this time. I only had one handle in my grasp yesterday. I will make sure today I have both.

Off to breakfast. Have an awesome OP/IP day.

Morning all!
Today I am sleepy. I went to bed early last night because TOM is making me crazy.. my emotions.. my cravings.. the bloating.. everything is so much worse this month. I was so emotional last night and really craved a new pesto I made for the DH. I didnt even get a lick. Proud of myself but then I had an extra restricted. UGH.. then the guilt came. This morning for breakfast I had an omelet instead of my normal restricted bar. Maybe I can make it the day without a restricted today to make up for yesterday? I've discovered that TOM is a very powerful thing on this diet and makes me crazier than normal. /sigh

Chloe, glad you're back! Relax and enjoy being waited on :P

Cadu, you are always so upbeat, thanks for that!
Chloe, I hope you feel better.
CassiR, all I can say is that there are some advantages to being my age and one big one is no TOM! Hang in there, this too shall pass and you will be thinner when it does!

I guess it is going to be a rainy day here in Idaho. So today I cannot garden and will have to work on my daughters dance costume that I have been putting off. Recital is next week so I really need to get a move on!

I hope everyone has a great day. Prettyone, I hope your weigh-in is fun! Remember this is a life changing journey of very small steps. Enjoy each step.
