Warm tea helps. Anything hot seems to feel more filling.
Remember your lettuce...eat it to "fill the hole"
And you really don't want to be too active day one. Heck, I spent the first three days in bed!

Have some hot herbal tea & find something to keep you occupied...clean, get outside, drink more water. The hunger does last a few days but when ketosis kicks in, it is an appetite supressant!
In addition, it is about re-learning behaviors. We are so used to grabbing food/snacks whenever we feel like it so then we are hyper-aware that we can no longer do that. This passes, as well but it IS an uncomfortable few days.

Right now I'm working off of a really tight budget, so no extra lettuce! But as soon as I get my SNAP benefits I'll be able to afford more lettuce.

Yes, I remember the first time I did IP the first few days were horrible ... but since I HAVE done this before I know it will pass. I just have to stay 100% OP and I'll make it through! And yes, before I even made my first meal of the day I was suddenly wanting to eat everything in the house. Can't wait for the ketosis. Now that I can't eat to ease my "boredom", though, I'll probably be a lot more productive. Thank goodness for that~

Thanks for the tea suggestions! I just bought a few Brita filtered squeeze bottles and they get here today, so once the water gets cold I'll be able to drink all the water my stomach can handle.

I kinda set myself up from the beginning that I wasn't going to "force" the people around me to diet alongside me. This is MY journey, and other than seeking out recipes that would satisfy everyone's palate, I didn't sweat it when they were eating what I couldn't have. It will ALWAYS be tempting - so I looked at it as a lesson in willpower and putting food in its place (in other words, not letting the food be in control!). Even in maintenance, that pizza looks great - but I still can't have a slice just because everyone else is (fun day food only!) - and I learned how to deal with that temptation in Phase 1.

I am seriously revamping my focus and will go back to measuring rigidly my cups and my ounces on everything!
Lisa summed it up. But you lost nearly 2lbs - that is pretty darn close to the correct average losses per week that you SHOULD be seeing!

It's been said here repeatedly - but weight loss is NOT a linear process. It is not a straight, constant downward drop. Your body is going to try and stabilize itself along the way. You might have an illness, injury, or hormonal time where your body retains some water. Or you might just have one of "those" weeks where the scale is holding off its reward for your diligence. It is ALL part of the process.

Get the word "ONLY" out of your vocabulary. Loss is loss. Whether it's inches lost, pounds lost, or both - it's all headed in the right direction.

Does anyone else do Ideal to Go? I've gotten a few emails from them that seem to indicate that they are no longer related to IP. Am I misunderstanding? Perhaps this is a brick and mortar place that is switching from all IP products? They are offering me self branded "Ideal to Go" products. Just curious if any of you have seen this...

Default stupid question?

Just had my first weigh in and wanted to anounce it to you guys, but can't seem to figure out how to navigate this site well...or is it because I haven't been here for 20 days that I can't start a new thread?
Hugs,
Christine

Happy Friday.

Scale victory for the DW at last night's WI she is down 0.5 pounds but is starting her TOM so she is quite happy, that and the fact she is seeing visible changes to her body due to losing weight.

Jumped on the scale and it is moving down - not worried about the exact number jsut glad to see it is moving downward.

Checked my work email last night and there was message asking me to see the president this morning. So spent all night worrying about it. All for nothing because he just wanted to know if I would be interested in expanding my role within the college - on a temporary basis - excellent a bit more job security for a little while. Good deal. The only frustrating thing today is my bloody pants will barely stay up. Last hole on the belt has been used, pants will no longer fit and if I'm not careful someone walking behind me or walking towards me might be getting an eye full if the pants slip entirely off my hips.

This is the perfect place to announce it

Hello from Sudbury, Ontario, where are you in Ontario?

Gotcha! Okay, well...I lost 7lbs and 7 inches!!!!
Back to work Monday, got an extra box of drinks to keep on my desk in case I get weak, I teach gym and dance to little guys so I'm thinking I'll need a boost sometimes! My coach says I'd better have them handy rather than head to the staff room starving and being tempted by all the goodies that are there (seems it's always somebody's birthday; cake).
Hugs,
Christine
