Chloe - you are one of the ones I learned so much from in the beginning of my journey. Welcome back, and I wish you new and ongoing success for a healthy future!


These 'free' days in maintenance are going to take some figuring out...maybe I should not have had one on Christmas Day, with all that tempting food in front of me! Way overdid it, and am sooo uncomfortable now... fell asleep in my chair around 9, woke up just before midnight, and now can't get back to sleep May be a combination of food hangover and guilt??? Whatever, I know that on the next big dinner this Friday, I am going to be much more conscientious about what goes on my plate. And need to do at least a week of P1 beginning Jan. 2. (Off to the Maintener's thread next to "confess my sins" - lol!)
Hi Greeniris,
Thanks for your comment. Glad to be back. I'm glad to be going back to phase 1 and expect to be in it for 2-3 months, then phase off into maintenance. I found going into the maintainer's thread early to begin learning what to do and how to do when there's much less structure very helpful.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
Chloe

Default Rainbow - you look gorgeous!

Rainbow, you look so beautiful! I'm proud of your weight loss!

Question (as I reboot): Is there an easy way to get a downloadable version of your recipes?

Any help, from anyone,m is much appreciated!

Hi Chloe,

I have actually put all of Rainbow's recipes into 2 PDF "books." One is her original (mostly IP products and then a few alternatives). After she got nasty emails about including alternatives, though she put disclaimers into each recipe, she closed that thread and I ended the book. She has since opened an alternative recipe thread and I started a new book for that thread. I have them out on Google Docs so using the links, which never change, will always take you to the updated version. Being PDF, you can download and print what you want.

Enjoy,
Molly

Hi Friends!!!!
I have been away, but I am back! Things got a little busy once school got into full swing. I want you all to know that I will forever be in your debt for getting me through all of the phases and in to a very comfortable MAINTENANCE!!!!!! I have been maintaining with ease, since the end of October. I will spend time later today checking you all out!!! I can't wait to read up on the latest. I pray that you all have been well. I am heading out to get some groceries as the weather is supposed to get nasty. (I need veges and water after my "fun" days of Christmas. Hugs-Julie
I will also try to get a most recent pic up here as well!

Ah another kindle addict! I have to limit how many books I order in a month or I get a shock when my VISA statement gets here.
:-) I've been afraid to get another book so soon. The pattern is $6 and is down loadable on line. I will warn you though, I had to play with the printing to try and darken it, and then copy it darker a couple times to get it dark enough for me to read. They used some gold color text in it - and it prints as light gray otherwise.

I appreciate the insight :-) I'm sure it's a task to find the line between a free day and going too far. I can't wait to get there (but it's frightening too). It will be good to get there and figure it all out. Ditto on the support here and how important it is.

Default Where to buy IP foods online?

All,
I use alternativesd except for 1 IP product, the broccoli cheddar soup. I was getting it from a local clinic which hasn't been as cooperative as I'd like, so looking for an online source.

This would be for shipment to the US.

thanks,
Chloe

i am with you lisa.....i think of molly and scorbett and all that baking and i think i am a WHIMP b/c i don't think i have that much willpower to bake it in the house. its hard enough to resist when around others.

So the generator has been turned on periodically to keep the fridge going and turn the blower on the heater once in a while. I did make it to work yesterday (2 hours late), and no internet service here then either. Anyway, we're doing OK, and I'll check back in later!
yikes!!!! glad we went to vermont and not northern michigan. sorry you are having to deal with that but it sure soulds like you are uber prepared!!! so impressed!! hope your holidays were fab!!

Still no power - 48 hours and counting. At least my phone is working most of the time now. Just made a Big Mac in a bowl for dinner (had burger already cooked and in the freezer). Need to go turn the generator off, but that will leave me in the dark again and oh so bored. VIP left this morning for IN to work for the weekend. Oh, and to top it all off, I slipped and fell at work this morning, sprained my knee. Grrrrr - when it rains, it pours. Or when it snows, it blizzards in this case!

Have a good night all...
ooooo so very sorry to hear about your knee. gosh you have had a rough week too it seems!! things will get better!!!! soon i hope!!

Oh yea I got a new to me car yesterday, a kia sorento, love it! It's been a long month sharing a vehicle w my son and DH since my wreck. So remember to drive safe and watch out I'm back on the road! Ha!

Glad you are having a great time and got there safely! I had, shall we say, an "interesting" drive, but am now here and enjoying the holiday! So far no problems staying on program, even though I was dismayed at the amount of stuff I had to pack to bring along. I even made some cookies for my dad, didn't even lick my fingers.

Hope everyone is having a healthy and happy holiday!
alison....dh said HE LOVES THE WAY YOU THINK!!! and not licking your fingers while making cookies, oh i am totally in awe gf!!!!!

My DH thought I was nuts, but the first thing I did yesterday when we landed was head to the island warehouse store (it's just like a Costco - they even have Kirkland products) to pick up a scale. It's the same Weight Watchers digital scale I have at home so I won't miss a beat in monitoring things for the next couple of weeks. (Yes, I'm one of those daily weighers ... just can't kick the habit.)

Stay safe, everyone!! (And Rainbow, funny true story: My grandmother used to travel all around the world. She proudly told every one all of her tips for how she was able to keep her packing to a minimum. One thing she always told everyone was that she only traveled with one set of undies and washed them in the sink every night. )
i am truly enjoying the cold and snow and fresh fresh mountain air!!!! but....i miss my scale. i am feeling so naughty and i just know i will have weeks of make up exams for flunking this semester of ip....but c'est la vie!!
yeah, um...too funny!!!!!

I'm not sure were that question was coming from.... maybe they are just starting to believe this will work for me? I've had the comment in that general wording from a couple people now.

I picked up some smaller size clothing from my sister's donation stash (long story but she had gone thru her items and had a lot to clear from her wardrobe). LOL she gave the donations for my mom to take to the donation place, and my mother stored them - long before I started IP. It's like my own private stash of smaller clothing - though I think I've brought home the smallest sizes now. After these I'll be buying clothing. I have pants to last me into size thru size 16 now, and tops down thru ladies size XL. I was wearing size 18 or larger in high school, so it will feel good to fit into them - even if vanity sizing occurred in between high school and now.

DH and I are going out to see a movie this morning. Not sure if it's going to be the James Bond movie or The Hobbit. I haven't been to a theater in years. Last time I remember the seats not fitting me well at all. Then we are going to buy Christmas dinner makings: rib roast (may be a bit higher in fat but we're not getting "prime" so I'm going to be just enjoying me some of that - and not worrying), asparagus, salad, and some carby stuff for the guys. Celery and pickles for snacking. Hmmm I like those pickled peppers too, I may have to get some of those.

I've gotten back to my knitting. I had stopped for a few years, only toying with it now and again. Anyway I've finished a hat, a shawl, and I've started a cardigan called "Tea Leaves". I found all the yarn for these in my stash, so it feels very good to be using up some of that. https://www.google.com/search?q=tea+leaves+cardigan+free+pattern&hl=en&tb o=u&rlz=1T4CKMB_en___US494&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa =X&ei=xC7XUMjYMObmiwLJyYGgCw&ved=0CDsQsAQ&biw=1366 &bih=612 If you have Ravelry access you can see the photos of it. I am modifying it though, to add buttons all the way down, and to make the neck opening a bit smaller for me. I am also knitting the pattern 4 inches smaller than I currently wear right now - as I want it to be something I can wear for a while when I'm done. I have a few friends also knitting the same sweater starting last week, so it's a "knit along".... I suppose when we think about it, all of us are on a "weight loss along"

Rainbow you made me laugh... I know it was supposed to be a romantic trip, but wow, you go all out girlfriend! Go Rainbow!
it was not intended!! hahahaha but so glad i could be the "butt" of the jokes! and make you laugh!!! hahaha

couldn't see the pictures but i'm sure its gorgeous!!

"are you going all the way with this diet?" SERIOUSLY!!! i don't get some peoples questions!! haha one of my favorites so far was my mom ragging me about not being able to eat carrots.

so glad you are getting more new clothes to you!!!! so proud of you and how wonderful you have done. i love my gray sweater!!!!!

so did you go see the hobbit? i wanted to treat nigel to the hobbit for christmas day but the movies were too far away from our wilderness locale!!!

There's a 1yr old grandniece who will be there, and I'd so hate to pass a bug on to her.

Things are going well in P3. I'm a little sad to see that I've gained a couple of pounds back, but they do warn us to expect it so it wasn't a surprise. I've also definitely noticed, now that I'm on my 10th day of P3 and no longer in ketosis, that cravings are more noticeable. So far so good. I'm enjoying my first fun day on the 28th (in moderation). In fact, it's been so long since I've eaten anything with much sugar in it, that I'm a bit concerned re how my body will adapt to a sugary dessert. For sure, I'll be just indulging in a small portion.

Happy Holidays to everyone. I wish everyone a safe and merry Christmas.
hi evepet....i am pretty sure i am out of ketosis this week. i was not ip compliant and now my cravings are up and i pray i can get right back on track when get home.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas! Enjoy the time with your families.
this is not good news!! lets hope the new year gets all of us off track back on track!!!!

Up really late. DH and I had just gone to bed to discover the cat had chased the water slosh sound in the waterbed and punctured 5 holes. Had to get up and patch them and then unload the guest room bed to have somewhere to sleep, but now we're wide awake. Sure glad it's a holiday tomorrow so no critical timing.

Happy holidays, all.
Molly
