Morning! This is my first post. I have been lurking for a couple of weeks, but I have to say thank you for all the support you all have already given me.

So far, I like the plan, and I have found that I really like rutabagas and fennel. Who knew? Not this girl.

So, I grab my pack of apple cinnamon soy puffs for breakfast this morning and head out the door to work stomach growling all the way. I get to work, open the packet and pour into a cup only to discover I have dill pickle zippers for breakfast. Uggghhh..... I like the dill pickle zippers, but not for breakfast. LOL Happy Monday to everyone.

Good morning! I am back!

I had to go off IP for awhile. I had several things happen such that I could not spend on the products. There were also several out of town trips to deal with also. I have to say it was all a bit scarey to me!

Today, I am able to get back to the program completely. Actually so relieved about that.

I worked hard to eat as well as I could. I stayed away from all grains and sugars. I kept the carbs low. Fortunately, I did not gain weight. In no way did I return to my previous eating style or choices.

While I was gone, I had some big revelations about why I compulsively ate, especially carbs, over the years. I have long struggled with depression. Before, I did not realize how much of an anxiety disorder I had been dealing with. It was just my way of struggling through life and hard for me to understand what was going on! Realizing all this and thinking back over my life and the suffering has been a lot to take in.

Anyway, starting my morning with water first. The adventure continues.

Hi USMCVet,
Not sure if you received my note - just wanted to reiterate that you need to watch out for that innocuous looking saline solution they give you with the IV. It could be sugar based - be sure to ask for the non-sugar version.

Good luck!

Good morning all. I'm having issues eating. I'm having to force myself to eat. Is that normal? One thing I can count on is that I am usually okay for breakfast. It's lunch and dinner I have an issue with.

Anyways....have a great day IPers! THINK THIN!

Welcome back Samba,
I know what you mean regarding learning about your emotions and relationship to food. It's great to understand your triggers and corresponding coping mechanisms.

I find myself thinking that in a way I'm glad this weight loss process is taking time. I need this time to understand which emotions cause me to reach for unhealthy snack foods and now I'm beginning to develop new habits to replace the old unhealthy habits. Yesterday Delgen mentioned that she knits to keep from snacking when she shouldn't. I used to love knitting and was planning on taking it up again in the fall. Think I'll start sooner, it's a great way to keep my hands busy.

IP provides the basis for an interesting journey, if one takes the time to think about what's happening emotionally.

Hi Ticia,
How did you become heavy if you have to force yourself to eat?

I've only had to force myself to eat for the last few days. But before.....that was NEVER an issue.

In the early days of IP I wasn't hungry either. Around day 4 I was HUNGRY and then I went into kitosis and went back to not being hungry. Just make sure you eat your IP packets and veggies, at least every 4 hours. Your body will regulate and fix that all for you soon

Samba: Welcome back! Glad to see you!
Kickapookicks::Welcome: to the forum!
Ticia:During Ketosis we can end up not being hungry since our body is getting the calories it needs from our fat stores. Keep in mind that "eating" can be drinking (if that's easier for you?) so if you are having a hard time getting your protein packets in, try the fruit juice type ones just with ice in them, not smoothie texture just watered down like a fruit punch at a wedding type thing, and for veggies, a light way to get your 4 cups is spinach, it never makes me feel full, and you can snack on it throughout the day if you need as far as "that" goes.
Chloe:Thank you for your insight this morning. Last night I was watching TV and I "caved" by cheating and eating 2 extra bars. I know I must have needed them from my weekend of motorcycle riding (still had a loss this morning) but I know a LOT of it was from boredom as well, as I had just been watching TV at the time.
Vet:Good luck on your surgery today. Are you going to get a dictation program so you can keep typing to us? How cool would that be?
