Cindy quote from Lisa: "If we only focus on what we're missing (and how soon we can have it again), we're not learning a thing about how to keep it off, & all the struggle to actually lose the weight is for nothing!"

I had a peanut butter chocolate IP bar for breakfast, another one for a snack, and then I am having iceburg lettuce with shredded cabbage and grilled chicken for lunch. For dinner.. no idea! Living life on the edge.. hehe
I just got back from my 1.5 week weigh-in and I was down 12.5 inches!! -11.8lbs. This motivates me to start eating as much as I can (I usually don't eat enough calories for this diet, the protein fills me up)
Breakfast: 3/4 c Eggbeaters (Whites only), sauteed spinach in olive oil
Lunch: Mixed green salad with evoo, cucumbers, PureProtein shake
dinner: hard boiled eggs, romaine salad, steamed broccoli
evening snack: PureProtein shake
Last night I had two hard boiled eggs. Is that enough protein for dinner? I was down .8 this morning so I'm loosing but just wanted to make sure I'm eating enough protein. 1 boiled egg is 6 grams protein and 5 grams fat. (Just read that it's 2 whole eggs and 2 egg whites on the latest sheet (edited))
I save all my restricted items for when I ride bikes or days when I walk which is usually on the weekends. Weight loss has been steady.
Start: 193 (Pre Baby)
Current: 154 (6 months Post Partum)
Goal: 110 lbs
WI#2 - no loss 6"
WI#4 - 2.8 lbs

I just created my best IP meal ever. It was one of the best meals I have ever had, either on or off program.
Here is my recipe:
Gourmet Tofu Mélange
1 C fresh cabbage, chopped
1 C fresh asparagus, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T extra virgin olive oil
1-2 T fresh lemon zest
2 T fresh thyme
2 T fresh oregano
¼ C soy sauce
8 oz Tofu
Sauté garlic, cabbage and asparagus in olive oil until vegetables are soft. Add lemon zest, thyme, oregano and soy sauce. Stir to coat vegetables. Add tofu and heat on medium-low until soy sauce is slightly reduced and tofu is heated through.
Cindy, that looks yummy! I will try it later this week!
For me: Another day of very yummy food!
Breakfast: Peach-Mango drink
Lunch: Herb-Cheese Omelet with 1 cup sauteed mushr & peppers mixed in
Dinner: Oh, so yummy!
Chopped beef curry with peppers & mushrooms and garlic and curry powder!
Also some steamed cauliflower
Snack: Haven't decided yet. Maybe pudding, maybe a bar

New to the site. Just searching through all the posts. Someone on another post said you should get 30 grams of protien for dinner. I don't know where it was. Maybe the IP daily chat for today.
That was me and its right- 8oz of chicken is something like 40g protein. So when preparing my meats I am for the protein in grams amount, not so much the oz. You need to get AT LEAST 30g with your dinner.
