Have a great OP Day!

Doctors' scales are the worst. I always weigh a whole lot more when I go to the doctor.

Woo Hoo! Way to go. I love Mexican food too. My husband and I eat it all the time.



Great job! Just ignore the wacky fill-in coach. I don't know how the imitation Krab is made, but it's fish. You might check the list of ingredients the next time you're @ the supermarket.
Thanks SewingMomma. Yes she was on ignore I just wanted it over. Its people like that who makes it hard on us. She was kinda condecending as well which I didnlt like. She was like I will see you next wk I was like um no Im seeing my regular coach on Thurs she will be back HAHAHA.

Don't let that get to you, NO 2 scales weigh the same. My clinic one says 246lbs, my Dr's says 240, my home one says 232......I know mine stays in one place the clinic one is always in a different place. So I guess I weigh between 246 and 232....lol....which ever weight it is I am happy with it as long as it goes down and my clothes are fitting looser it doesn't matter what that darn scale says!

I will post pictures and ticker as soon as I figure it out. Haha
That is exactly what I needed to hear! I don't know where it came from but for some reason I've been dreaming that I'm eating a bagle and cream cheese. But as soon as I wake up I think no deal I'm not giving up on my size 6 jeans. They are so lonely hanging in my closet collecting dust. On previous diets I would have given in but this is becoming such a way of life that I seem to be fine reminding myself it's ok to have the dream, laugh and just move on.

Thank you for sharing your experience it was very refreshing! Enjoy the beach and family time.

Default op at Olive garden

Good morning, I am meeting some old friends today at Olive garden for lunch, some of these women I haven't seen since high school. I looked at the menu and there's not much of a selection for what I want to eat. I'm not worried about going op, just hope there will be something available for me.

She asked if I realized that 6 months ago I had to ask if we could have a table because I couldn’t fit in the very booth we were sitting in because my belly was too big. My only answer was NEVER AGAIN. It’s the little things that come along with the weight loss that make this diet a life changer.

Everyone have a great OP day
What a super NSV! I'm so proud of you!

You can always rely on a good house salad with grilled chicken or shrimp. Order YOUR way, they will accommodate you.

So I have to share this with y'all. I went out last night with a friend who started the program because of me. Haven't been out to this bar/club in like 3 years. There were a few people that STILL go there and sit in the SAME chairs I remembered them sitting in. A few of them were shocked to see me. Anyways, It was ladies night so ladies drink FREE. I went to the bar and asked for a bottle of water, the bartender looked at me kinda crazy and said ummmm ok here ya go. My friend, who is OP, asked for a vodka and pineapple juice, I looked at her with a pair of eyes and she said "what its FREE"....I said just because its FREE doesn't mean you have to have it. She said you are right but got the drink anyways....lol...I sat and people watched, drinking my water while she drank her drinks. Needless to say I am happy with my choices of 6 bottles of water to her 6 drinks.....lol..So next week when we weigh in I will lose my 1lb and we will see what she will lose.....lol

Default Newbie

I started this post yesterday and then got side tracked at work and left with it still sitting on my computer screen. Let's see if I can remember it all.

My name is Shawna, I am a mother to 4 (ages 21, 15, 12, 10). Four years ago we moved for me to start grad school, then we moved again last year when I was done. In the past, I've been fairly healthy and active and these last 4-5 years I've really had to work at keeping weight off (I don't always succeed).Two years ago I did P90X and followed the nutrition program, and lost 20+ lbs. Last Monday I was back where I started weight wise two years ago . I hadn't been working out due to lack of space (excuses, excuses) and just the fact that I feel unmotivated when I see myself in the mirror. It gets so depressing to have to go buy new clothes because they are too tight. I saw co-workers having great success with IP so I decided to try it. I have never done any type of program such as WW or this, so its very new to me. So far, my husband has been very supportive.

I am currently on day 7 of the Ideal Protein program. I did a bit of high protein, low carb and gave up soda 4 days before that. I have my first WI this afternoon. I'd love to see big numbers but I don't think I will (I've watched my scale at home-I know its a no-no). Some of my clothes are already less tight, especially across my belly. So that's promising. Ideally (pun intended), I'd like to lose 30lbs in the next 9 weeks. I know that may be too lofty of a goal, but hey... its a goal. We leave for vacation that day.

Giving up soda has been hard, but not as bad as I thought. I've enjoyed the packets for the most part and have some that I really like and some I probably wont get again. I don't feel like I have experienced any of the side effects listed (good for me). It is hard to get all those veggies in, but I think I have succeeded. My only sip ups this week were 1 drink of milk at a dinner where my kids had set the table and I honestly just forgot, cough drops and gum. I do flavor 1/2 of my water with crystal lite.

I do have a few questions though.

1. My coach lets me have one restricted thing a day, I read on here that many do not at first, why is that? Should I not be having them? I could probably get buy without.

2. I tried turnip fries and they were completely soggy, are they supposed to be crisp? Maybe I just didn't cook them long enough. They weren't terrible though, esp with a little WF BBQ sauce.

3. Are there any cough drops that don't have sugar or sugar alcohols that anyone knows about off the top of their head? (I'll search but thought I'd ask too)

4. I have the same question about gum. The gum I usually chew has Aspartame and I read on here that we should avoid that. Why is that? Gum helps me from putting stuff in my mouth (i.e. food). Are there any out there that do not have Aspartame in it.

5. I have friends doing the 17 day diet (some having good results). I feel cheated as they get fruits and dairy but only b4 2pm. Has anyone had experience with both to know the difference in results?

Thanks in advance and I look forward to getting to know many of you. I feel like I already do since I've been lurking for so long

Shawna

Good morning everybody! It's just barely morning here...don't know where the hours went, but I did manage to take some photos and post them as my profile photo and one as a signature photo. I don't have any from when I was 300 pds, as I was so mortified to have photos taken. The one with me and my friend Jeanie playing music was about a year ago, 4 months into the program, but you get the idea...

I never felt at home in my heavy body. It felt like a prison to me, and now, I feel like I've broken out and the real me can come out again. I smiled back then, but I was crying inside, and music is what usually got me to smile. Now, I smile all the time and I really mean it, deep inside.

My hope for all of you, no matter how much or how little you have to loose, to find that joy and zest and beauty, your beauty. It is there, waiting...

Okay, well now I really have to get back to work!!!! Hope you all have splendid days and do something to help someone else.

Margaret

PS: CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHY MY PROFILE PHOTO AND SIGNATURE PHOTO ARE NOT SHOWING UP IN THE POST? DO I HAVE TO TELL IT THAT?
