[quote=wuv2bloved;4513455]Congrats!!on that weighin......YOU got LUCKY to still lose after eating the cake.....DON"T make it a habit

Oh! Definitely not! It's been easier. My family baked cookies last night and although they smelled amazing, I didn't want any. I just had some herbal tea and watched Friday the 13th Part 2!

Thanks for the encouragement everyone! Been sticking to the diet and on Day 9!

Hey, friends. Quick question: Can I substitute a IP packet (non restricted) for my 8 oz of meat? I'm going to a Halloween party tonight and don't feel like cooking - but they are serving red beans and rice - all no-no's - so I thought I'd just cut up a cucumber and bring a RTU to drink. Thoughts????

I teach music education, which includes all those who want to be or are music teachers. It's great fun! (except correcting papers, which I need to do tonight...) what is your son studying?

sstw1 That's a hard one. It might be a good idea to have some hard boiled eggs OR cold turkey meat in your fridge for times like this. Have fun at the Halloween party anyway!

Default I cheated!

Well, I feel bad. Tomorrow is my 20th wedding anniversary, and my husband and I are out of town for the night. We went to dinner at Ruth's Chris steakhouse, and the menu got the best of me. I finally decided to cheat for tonight, knowing I would be kicked out of ketosis and take a few days to get back into it. The first thing I ate was lobster bisque, and after a few bites I decided it wasn't worth cheating over, and I had a filet and lobster with sweet potato soufflé coming behind that. After the soup was gone, I felt bloated. I couldn't finish my steak or lobster, but that soufflé was to die for. The rest of it I could've gone without. Anyway, I'm committed to IP, and wanted to let everyone know that usually the menu reads better than it taste! I'm hoping to lose at least 12 lbs by 11/30, which is my birthday. I thought I'd be ready to stray for the day and eat a bit of birthday cake then jump right back on, but the guilt I'm feeling now may not let me!

He's graduating in sports administration. Still waiting to hear the results of his comps....nervous nelly! How many eggs can be substituted for the protein allowance? BTW: I ended up putting some left over roast in my mini processor and mixed in some WF BBQ sauce and took it with me along with my cucumbers! It was really tasty! Of course, everyone looked at me like I was nuts when I pulled it out while they were all eating Red Beans & Rice, coleslaw, and cheese biscuits...along with wine and petit fors.........not to mention all the chocolate candy...but I held strong. (Not too easy when your cousin is trying to entice you to "just one glass" and "just one petit for isn't going to kill ya!!!!) I am a major candy lover, but resisted, and was so proud of myself....mini victory! Now, if I can just get through tailgating this weekend for the LSU-Bama game......

BR peeps, I went to the farmers market @ Pennington this morning. They had spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers. I'm having the best fresh salad for lunch!!!! I also picked up some okra. If you haven't been, you should go next Thursday! They don't have as much selection as the Saturday market, but they have 10-15 vendors.

SST--great job handling food at the party! Geaux Tigers!!!

WUV, can you post your Thanksgiving recipes? I saw a mention of rice dressing on another thread, and I'm liking the rhubarb pie idea. Thanks!

I'm having so much fun and success with LizRR's purée recipes. If anyone has not tried them, you MUST!

Default NOLA & Oysters

Hi Everyone,

I am not from New Orleans, but travel there often. It's my favorite food in the country, so it will be like staring straight at my dragon. Does anyone have any suggestions of good restaurants where I can still stay within IP protocol? Also, are raw oysters OK on the diet? My coach said she never had that question before.

Great inspirations here!

others may be able to recommend restaurants better than me but raw oysters are fine! its the sauce that you use that may be a problem. New Orleans burgers and seafood in uptown on st. charles has some wonderful, IP friendly, meals. Also Superior Seafood is awesome and will cook anything you would like the way you like it
