I weigh in at 9am every Friday. I wear the same lightweight outfit and uggs so I can slip those off. I always make sure to empty my bladder when I arrive at my clinic. Also, I don't turn the heat on in my car, in fear I may gain an ounce by warming up my body. Oh and I step on the scale ever so delicately. Hahaha.
Lost the first 39lbs with low carb
For me the sodium is something I've always watched...this is not just because of IP...We NEVER buy processed soups and actually try to stay away from processed anything....I've always made my own soups. Same with tomato sauce. (Which I am not eating at all these days...) Once I'm off IP I'll not be using processed soups at all. I think mine are much healthier. Usually a clear chicken broth with vegetables...and the protein (meat) is on the side or chopped up in the soup. We also don't use noodles...as I must follow gluten free. I am sensitive to wheat, and I have two kids with full blown celiac disease! Brown or wild rice is good instead of noodles but I can live with out it...
The reason to go with the IP soups for me right now is because I know the program is balanced and the foods are manufactured to supply most of the nutrients needed. However...800-1000 mg of sodium at one meal does me in, and is not something I'll be continuing...weigh-ins or NO!!!
