I think I'm still under 100g of carbs today, at least, which I think might not make me gain, or at least not much.

I'm not going to weigh in tomorrow because I know it'll only make things worse since it'll kill me if I gained. I'll wait until next Monday and this week I'm being completely 100% OP, no excuses. I need to be at 118 by next Monday and if I'm strict enough I can do it.

Please don't judge me, I know I shouldn't have done this and it's killing me. But I need to move forward and keep a positive attitude or I won't lose the rest of this weight.



At least I restrained myself since usually when I cheat on a diet, I end up saying, "ugh whatever I'll just ruin the rest of the day and start fresh tomorrow" and this time while I did eat badly, I could be eating the rest of what's in the kitchen right now, as it usually would be. I'd be eating bread, cookies, pasta, etc and I'm not even considering it. The idea is scary to me.
It is very difficult to stay on a diet. We are human and we all make mistakes. It is good that you didn't go "sugar crazy" and eat lots of junk. Just take it day by day. I have my TOM, out of sequence, and I am all hormonal. I went to the movies yesterday with the kids and didn't cheat and eat ANY popcorn. BUT today my daughter made kettle corn and I CHEATED! Popcorn is my kryptonite. It makes me very weak!

SO we must move on, forgive ourselves and start anew. Hopefully we didn't go to far backwards.

Agh I know. It's been a lot easier than at the beggining but it's still hard. It's good that you didn't have any popcorn at the movies, though!
Yes, we must move on. I think that's the key. When I cheat, I end up ruining everything most of the time, and that's the biggest issue. If we just get back on track right away then we'll be fine.

Just forgive yourself Pauli and get back to 100% OP. You have done well and you can do it!

I seen this ice cream maker at Target today and was close to buying it! It looked like a good size for our packet creations. The reviews are mixed but the ones that like it, really do. I have a scale in my Amazon cart and I'm considering adding this too. Good luck deciding!

Have my WI#3 tomorrow. Can hardly wait. I found that I do better by only getting on the scales one time per week. My husband says that my outllook on life has really changed since I started to lose weight. Feel empowered. Have a great week!

My neighbor brought me a couple of eggplant fresh from her greenhouse. The only way I have ever had eggplant is breaded and fried....not gonna happen! I need ideas for how to make these yummy, please!

Default Bob's burgers and Brew - on plan!

Pssh... forgot to mention we went out and ate - and I found some great alternatives.. used Salsa instead of dressing, yada yada... I think i'm getting this plan down, or at least finding good work arounds in a pinch the fog is lifting, finally.

We went shopping at the super Walmart today. I stocked up on veggies, and looked for WF products (which were sparse - but there). I got turnips and kale amongst other items. I found raw turnips last week were a bit bitter, but cooked in with other veggies were delightful.

I tried making kale chips tonight - and I ate quite a few testing - just to be sure what I thought of them. Since I ate so many "testing" it must be a thumbs up - but I had to laugh because it reminded me of how farmers sometimes put molasses and salt on hay to inspire cattle to eat it. I put a little olive oil and salt on mine. lol sorry for that story - but it is what came to mind.. I do recommend you try kale chips if you haven't. DH gave them a big thumbs down, but hay..err, hey what does he know? (more for me bwahahaha)

I got a few stalks of ruhbarb and i have ny cheesecake pudding packets maybe I can do something with that combo next week.

Ordered the WF mayo I kept searching for - and some other items. At last I can stop looking now, they are ordered.

Because I began getting very bad headaches from the sucralose and had to stop the packets. Then I did the research on the effects, and decided it was best for me to stop all artificial sweeteners except from Stevia. I have been steadily losing, and at least this way I can have more real foods and still lose and be in ketosis. I use the myfitness pal to make sure my carbs are low and protein is adequate. I also have begun instructing exercise classes, so I have a high carb day on those days. I have still been losing even with the high carb days and feeling even better off the packets!

I'm doing very well. I'm beginning my own Health Coaching Business as well and I'm .5 pounds from One-derland!!! My mother just came in last night and she continued to call me skinny and wants to hire me to coach her!! I tried on my prom dress for her and she was shocked at how big it was on me! This has truly been a happy time for me. I just wanted to know, since I'm not doing the packets and doing more low carb options, can I still post and chat with you guys? Hoping everyone has a lovely day!
Its a bummer that you had to stop using IP, but Im really happy that you didnt let it break your stride!! Way to stick with it

Now I am off to play golf.

I made "ice cream" last night. It was good!

Stefany, your new pictures are fabulous!
The ice cream is good!!!
Thank you so much!! We went out for dinner and a show and had a lot of fun

Hope everyone's having a good weekend. And staying cool....it's really hot here in Wisconsin, not sure how the rest of the country is.
WOOO HOOO You are such a loser!!
I love my misto too, I bought a second one so one has EVOO and the other has grape seed oil in it.
