I'm down another pound and off to a good start. Weekends are still tough for me but I feel so good that I hope not to sneak anything extra. I had stalled for a long time due to weekend cheats but reading Dr. Tran's book and actually updating this weight tracker helped.

I got his new book (hard copy only) and it is hugely helpful!
Have you made a plan for the weekend that includes what you will do to overcome need for extras? I think a lot of us got used to eating out of boredom. What can you do instead?
Sheer willpower only works for so long. Having a plan is SO important!

Good morning all,
Congrats Amy on the loss and here's to being back in the saddle to "git 'er done"!

I have also been struggling and at my WI today, am down .4. So happy.

Wishing all a great OP day,
Chloe

Good morning, everyone! I've got lots on my plate and need to get moving with packing for our big move and putting things on Ebay. (BTW, anyone in the market for a very lightly used Wii and Wii Fit? I'm willing to take a reasonable offer to avoid the whole Ebay hassle. They're in the original boxes and are like new. I just don't use them anymore.)

Anyway, lots of to dos on the list for today and this weekend, and one pound to go to goal. It's ironic that I'm not really looking forward to phasing off of IP.

Hope y'all have a great day! (I discovered pina colada pancakes yesterday ... I already know what I'm having for breakfast!! Yummy!!)

Had my weigh in yesterday, I'm down another 3 lbs. Which is very surprising because I was working overnights until Tuesday, and wasn't getting very much sleep. But I also wasn't eating very much either.. Hey i'm not complaining. lol

So I'm reaching a stressful time in my life. I just sold my house last night. yay!!! So I have to worry about packing, and moving.. And my husband and I are moving in his parents basement until at least November, while our new house is being built. We are Italian. And my worst struggle with IP is, that everytime my husband's mother cooks, (God love her) it's never anything I can eat. Once we move in, I don't plan on eating with them every night. But i know they will want us up for Sunday dinners. And there are just so many times I can explain to her, that I can't eat, pasta, or homemade pizza, or breaded chicken/veal cutlets, or deep fried food before I either cave, or snap at her..
I'm so worried that not only is his family, not going to give us the privacy that we need, but that they will always want us to come up for dinner.I really don't know what to do. I've told her several times, things that I can't eat and she just doesn't get it.

Wow, that def sounds like a tough one but maybe if she expects you to join them for dinner you can bring/make your own meal and eat with them...it may put her off at first but once she physically sees how you are eating, maybe she'll start adding things to her menu to include you. It's possible that she just doesn't know what a meal without carbs looks like! LOL
