Dinie89 Sorry you're sick I caught a bug a few weeks ago. I asked the pharmacist for an OTC diabetic friendly cold medicine (spacing on the brand) but they will definitely be able to help you. Also, gargling vinegar and salt water alternately (it's awful) will help the sore throat. I made tea and added ginger root and lemon, that seemed to help. Feel better!

NSV this morning: got into a sliming new pair of jeans I walked in the door and my boss thought I was a client coming around the corner, I'll take it!

Have a great day everyone!

Good morning everyone, hope you all have a great day. Week one on ip is officially behind me and week 2 begins. My WI is this afternoon but I've been weighing at home each day and I've lost 4 lbs. I'm wondering though, since I only have 21 lbs to lose is 4 lbs in the first week a good loss. I guess I expected the first week or 2 to be more because I think the loss will probably slow down or does it remain somewhat consistent. My coach said I could conservatively expect to lose 3 lbs. a week.

Non-caffinated teas are great because you don't have to drink extra water after each cup.

Like mquinn posted, you can use sugar free OTC medicine. Also if you can stomache it, a mixture of apple cider vinegar & cayenne pepper is supposed to knock out pretty much any virus. It's even supposed to be a home remedy for strep throat. It's pretty nasty, but works.

That's a fantastic weigh in considering you only have 21 lbs to lose. It's almost 20% of your total weight loss goal. The first couple of weeks might be around 3 lbs, but as you get closer you may be looking at smaller losses. Be prepared to see losses of 1-2 lbs a week as you get farther into this. Don't get disouraged though, because with most of the mainstream diets you still wouldn't be losing that much weight each week.

Default Month In Review

Made it through the first 4 weeks OP. Results thus far:

First 4-5 days - feeling Gawd awful - Got over it

First week - 15 pounds gone

Second week - Zip, Zero, Zilch, Nada - panic and join the forum

Third week - 20 pounds gone -poof - clothes fitting better - people noticing

Week four - No pounds lost - according to my crappy home scale - but more importantly no pounds gained. More inches gone - but wondering why it's off my butt - pants aren't fitting right by any means
I no longer need to take my acid reflux medication. Total weight loss for month one 35 pounds.

Things learned - I can do this - My life won't end if I don't have sugar or carbs - it took many years to build up to this weight so it's not going to come off in a blink of an eye - I am learning that my body seems to respond on a two week loss cycle, nothing week one and then a loss in the second week.

That's it, that's all. Have a good day all.

You can have as much plain decafinated herbal tea as you want
Sorry you are sick!
Old family trick for colds/viruses: chicken soup!
Roast a chicken & make chicken/veggie soup. I use celery, leeks, bok choy.
I just weigh the cooked meat when I pull it off the bone so I know how much is in it (toss the skin & use the carcass & veggie scraps to make the broth). I usually have about 6.5 oz cooked meat to account for shrinkage in what that raw would have been

Feel better!

Spiritman -- Fantastic results and glad to see you're not getting upset if you don't see those great results everyweek, as it will level out a bit. Just keep blamin' your crappy scale Most of us have discovered the first place you put it on (and want it gone) is the last place it will leave. My butt and thighs seem to fall off first, but the jelly belly remains sigh.... keep pluggin! Thanks for sharing your journey with us

Sign me up! That sounds like a blast!! There are LOTS of threads on travelling while OP so you'll get some great advice there. Make sure you get whatever shots you need, get your medical insurance, and drink lots of bottled water. You'll have to make the decision to be OP constantly and that will be tough if it's all inclusive. However, for that cheap of a price, you won't feel like you have to drink and eat to get your money's worth. There will be lots of veggies and meat/fish on the menu so you'll have lots of choice if you can stay away from the fabulous fruit and fruity drinks
Have a great holiday!!

Not a problem IP43 My "jelly belly" is smaller but there is still plenty of "jelly in the jar"

I know this will probably get me kicked out of the man club or at least temporarily suspended but - I gotta mention cellulite. Yuppers got it happening quite nicely on the keg. I don't have 6 pack abs I have a keg. My stomach is starting to look like a moon scene - craters, pock marks etc.

Oh man, I think I might be one more step closer to dress shopping with some of the things I comment on. I guess I could always mention stretch marks. At least I don't have to worry about TOM.

Just woke up and feeling tired. I completely forgot about ketosis keeping you up at night. Tied and turned for several hours and didn't fall asleep until almost 5am. Bummer.
