So a few NSVs went to a reversal dinner tonight. Ate OP didn't drink. Can't sleep in hotel bed because it's too firm and I'm wide awake after an argument. So I got up and wanted to go to the fridge. Instead I'm on the couch with my blender bottle full of ice water writing g this note. I'm frustrated because I'm tired but wide freaking awake! No more desire for the fridge. It is nice to exercise some will power!

Sorry to hear your frustration bud...but VERY glad to hear you have resisted the temptations (and/or habit) that many of us have turned to for many years...the fridge.

Keep your chin up, tomorrows another day, and Im betting when you look back at this you will be proud of your choice, and the argument wont seem like such a big deal as it does now. Ive got a hot temper that keeps me in trouble a LOT, and my wife (shes such a dork) finds humor in my anger, which of course makes me even madder while she snickers away and often makes fun of my 'rages'. My 3 daughters are now old enough to all jump in on it...Im living in the estrogen ocean here....

Hang tough, and talk to you tomorrow!

Good early morning - 4:30 - - ugh - - can't sleep - i haven't had a night like this in a long while. Hat being sleepless. Checking in here - but everyone else must be slumbering as it is pretty darn quiet on here.

I've had a pretty good week staying OP. Don't feel many changes though. I'm waiting for my pants to be loose. I've always gotten "stuck in the 170's", and don't want that to happen. I want to get down to the 160's - then I think I will feel a big difference. I don't WI until this coming Wednesday - I hope to be down 5.

Can't wait to get through this day at work - I'm looking forward to 2 days off - I usually only get 1. It will be a welcome break as I feel drained after the Mother's Day week and then my daughter's HS graduation, and then right into the busyness(how DO you spell that) of Memorial Day.

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone!

Good Morning Everybody

I had a rough night last night. I have been having back trouble and for some reason last night it hurt terribly. So I took a vicoden that I had laying around from when I had oral surgery. Not a good idea. It did take the edge off of the back pain but man did I feel sick. dizzy and throwing up. I am feeling good today though, had a great night sleep. I will not do that again.

Anyhow, I am getting ready for a fun weekend. My 3 year old Great niece who I love dearly is staying with us for the weekend and on Monday we are hosting memorial day BBQ here at my house.The weather finally improved so I am looking forward to some fun.

Have a great day everybody and no matter what stay on plan

Good morning my friends. Happy Memoreal Day weekend!
I am having a scare. My Ketones are measuring only as a trace? This is unusual for me, ususally they register at a moderate. The only changes I have made is adding extra protein, per my coach. Also, I have discovered asparagus.....but they are OP. I have been using quite a bit of Pam to roast them. Those are the only changes.......I am really concerned.

Wuv... I have to say again that you are looking absolutely SUMMER-LICIOUS! You continue to be an inspiration and are just GLOWING in your monthly update pix. Thanks for having the courage to share and just be you! (JellyMae also looks stunning. So proud of y'all!)

I am in the home stretch, small lose this week (1.2lbs) but I will take it - it got me into the 130's and now I am only 11lbs from goal. Having a great time buying clothes but trying not to buy anything that may be too lose when I drop another size - so lots of shoes, dresses and tops - will get the bottoms when I reach goal.
I don't have a coach because of distance, but I do purchase from a spa that sells the product - when I went yesterday to stock up I mentioned to the owner that I had only lost 1.2lbs this past week and he said "then you are not in Ketosis, if you were in ketosis you would drop 3lbs" - I smiled nicely and told him I was 100% OP and he said that was impossible if I only lost 1.2lbs. I said I would review my journal but what I really wanted to do was punch him right between the eyes. Thanks to this site I know you can be 100% and still not lose 3lbs EVERY week.....arghhh. Sorry I just had to vent. I feel bad for the people not on this site who would let a jerk like this break their spirit.
To all my American friends - Have a wonderful Memorial weekend.

I have NEVER worried about any of that, You are following the program 100% and its telling you this? SOOO, you are adding STRESS to yourself that is UNNEEDED. Just follow the sheet and DON"T WORRY! TRUST ME, no stress is MUCH better than stressing yourself out over nothing

Can I help you punch him in the face???? I eat the SAME thing just about EVERY WEEK and I have been losing ONE pound a week. Its driving me crazy but it is what it is, can't do anything about it. Good for you for staying positive, you have come a long ways....congrats!

Good morning everyone, its only 7am and I am awake already....why?.....lol...I am NEVER up this early but I had to get up and take medicine, I have a really bad sinus headache, sniffles and yes my throat is killing me. So back to bed for me and I will check in again later

We were the same this morning. I was awake at 4:30, too. I'm usually never like that. I got my DH up with me, but he's gone back to bed now. For me, once I'm up, I'm up.

Sorry to hear about your back. I can relate, I have a lot of back problems, too. I am sorry that something you took made you feel worse. I'll keep you in my thoughts so your weekend can be great.

Sorry to hear about the spa owner giving you such a bad time. I can relate. I had a coach who was like that. Same mentality, you're cheating if you don't consistently lose 3 or more pounds. I was never anything but 100% OP. Wuv told me what she's told you. That's what is so great about this forum. You get the "real" story from those who have been there and know, plus the affirmation that you should get from the centers and coaches. Stick with all of us here. You'll get through. I've now made it 4 1/2 months and over 50 pounds. It does work.

Hey, swing by Georgia on your way to pick up CADU and USMCVET will have three angry women.

Wuv, so sorry to hear you're not feeling well. I hope you got lots of healing sleep. Take care.

Long weekend for me Unfortunately, DH does not get that luxury. We get today and some of tomorrow together before he has to sleep to get ready for four 12 hour nights.

WI tomorrow (I monitor myself now). Don't feel skinny this week though 100% OP. Someone send me that elusive whoosh fairy.

Have a great weekend.
Molly

All I can say is "help" - I just joined this site and have no idea what I am doing. I am usually really good with the computer but I am so green that i have posted twice and can't find them to see if anyone has answered. I am look for others on the IP diet to discuss how it is going and current issues such as racing heart??? Has anyone experienced their heart racing frequently?

Any suggestions on how to work this site would be great!! Thanks,

Hi Bracon1,
Click on your "name" over to the left of one of your posts right above your avatar. It's a link. One of the selections is "Find more posts by Bracon" click that and it will display your posts.

We all had to learn. Don't feel bad. Don't be afraid (or feel stupid) to ask for help.

Molly
