For all those with TOM issues (too little, too much, too often). YES it is because of the fat loss! When we ladies lose weight quickly, that estrogen that was stored up in our fat cells floods our system. That causes our cycles AND our moods to go haywire.

It also causes birth control to be less effective, so make sure you're using extra protection if you don't want an IP baby - or go to town (and prepare to phase off) if you DO!

Question: Do you find the Paleo diet compatible with Phase 4?
Thank you!!!

P.S. I do plan to return to Phase 1 in a couple months, but plan to use alternative products.
I am only on "page 1" so others may have already said this but whatever you do, phase off properly, don't just stop. I decided to stop and was feeling great and didn't phase off... and 20 lbs later I'm back trying to get back to where I was. The weight will come back very fast if you don't phase off properly so your pancreas can adjust.

A lot of people follow a paleo diet after for maintenance. I plan to do that myself more than likely -- returnin' to my cave man roots

So I had my first official weigh in... and at one week I lost an AMAZING 14.2 pounds and 6.75 inches!!!!! I stayed OP (with alternatives) and only had one oops when hubby cooked edamame and I ate it thinking it was ok!

I have to say I feel so positive about this journey! I cant wait to see the future me

I was telling friends today that I dont even feel deprived with this plan. Today was my once a month kidfree 'spa' day, when I get my hair and nails done, and BEFORE I would have stopped for a lemonade and 1-2 donuts, and then driven into the city and had a large sub for lunch with chips and pop and then probably have gotten a pop afterwards again!

TODAY.. I got up and enjoyed my morning shake while checking emails, went and got my hair done, then came home to eat my lunch of veggies, 1 boiled egg (with two egg whites) and salad. I brought water with me for the drive, had a herbal tea with a friend and then had my nails done!
No cheats... no thoughts about cheating!!!

I know next week wont be as big a drop...but I am still excited to see the scales keep going lower!!

Yay IP..and yay for everyone on here with amazing advice and recipes and support!
Danna

ps.. I also ended the week with chest congestion... so it was super nice to see the numbers drop the way they did!

You've had some great advice and so I'll only add my 2 cents, as I mentioned above -- it's definitely harder the second time around, so if you can stick to it, try to keep going. I started same time as ragdoll and she's 70 pounds ahead of me in her loss because she kept going. We're all different, yadda yadda yadda, but when I see her numbers/stats it reminds me where I'd be today if I could just keep going. It's tough tho' that's for sure!

I look forward to breakfast every morning now, the herbs and cheese omelet was getting old.

Morning bliss awaits....
Just remember that you can make pancakes out of the cereal packs and they arent' restricted that way. Egg whites. 1/2 tsp baking powder, and water to a good consistency will get you pancakes and save you your restricted for later in the day

Default feeling crappy...oh no!

First weigh in is Friday, looking forward to the pancakes....the cereal with cold water sounds nasty...
I think I figured out why I feel as bad as I did on day 3, we were out of town yesterday and although I brought 3packs with me, I didn't drink enough water, or take supplements and, I think this was the major culprit, I put milk and splenda in 2 teas...and ate little veggies (only what was on the 2 salads I ordered at the fast food places on route).
So...tomorrow, hoping to be back to my normal self...I felt good for 2 whole blissful days, lol...
Just hope it doesn't screw up my WI too much...

I will admit to doing a "lite" version since I'm low on supplements, but I'm following as closely as I can with generic low carb protein drinks and regular food in the form lots of veggies and meat. Planning to go back full time soon. Wish me luck. Glad to be back on the forum.
Manda, I'm here with you!!! My dad passed away suddenly 8 years ago, my brother two weeks before Xmas in a fire.... I've gained 30-40# in the last 3 years. I have determined that I WILL NOT BE A VICTIM OF STRESS, WORRY, and SORROW!!! You too Manda!!! We need to be strong for ourselves!! That is what our lost ones would want......

**If you have a squeemish stomach than stop reading** I have to tell you a funny, but not so funny story. My TOM decided to visit on Sunday and it seemed pretty normal, but then on Monday it was like a dang dam broke and river started flowing. I had to change tampons FIVE TIMES in one day. It was awful and I still had leakage! Gross. So I went to the store and bought ULTRA tampons and ULTRA (heavy flow) pads. Opened up the pads and laughed my head off. I swear these things were at least 8-9 inches long! I've never seen anything like it! Made me think I wasn't the only out there with troubles.
:
This made me lau!gh regarding the ultra pads. Asked my husband to pick up some pads awhile ago and he doesn't know what the heck to get, well he came home with some ultra super heavy flow suckers and let me tell you did we ever have a laugh after unrolling those monsters out of their package! Huge!

So.... I had my DD Rx filled today and while so I had my pressure checked. Granted it wasn't TOO high, but it was hypertension high...... I had a salad and IP pasta for lunch then attempted to donate blood after. I was rejected because my iron was low So I'm a bit bummed tonight.....

I am getting my first blood workup done next week since I started IP, excited to see what it says! Will post my before and after results once I get them!

I also haven't seen my primary doctor since I started, she has no idea. I am sure she will be surprised I have lost 70 lb since I last saw her!

I'm thinking TOM is to blame as I am waiting for it anyday now, I just dont want to cave here at work and eat a bunch of crap I shouldnt. Especially since someone left chocolate cake in the breakroom
I have 2 scrambled eggs with veggies almost every day for breakfast! I just count it towards my total protein & veggies. Eggs fill me up much more than a shake in the morning. So I save my IP shake for a mid morning snack.
No need to cave, have the omelet
