I find lots of presentable - ungranny pjs at Kohl's.

I have been thinking about what I can cook for Easter. The big hand that they sell with the brown sugar packet to pour ontop-do you think the ham would be okay (without the sugar on it)??

Had a great NSV today!! We had a large sheet cake for an employee today and as always stepped up to cut the cakes and help put onto the plates. Had frosting and cake all over my hands but was not even tempted to have a piece, bite or even tad of the cake!

Just finishing week 3 this upcoming Thursday. Have made myself realize what a little cheat may do to my progress.

Thanks - this board helps me with this journey so very much.

My doctor explained that I should not use fiber capsules because they often contain carbs. He recommends Miralax or Mag Citrate (for extreme circumstances). lol

I have been on the diet for 21 days and I am down 11 lbs. I did do a cheat day and it put me back for a few days. I am still thrilled with my weight loss, though. I have dieted the past few years and never could get under 170 lbs. I am at 164lbs today. Yaayyy!!

Another food day at work today to avoid. Usually doesn't bother me, but for some reason today I am hungry and keep thinking about it. I have my 6 week weigh in tonight to keep me focused though!

Thanks for all the posts.....keeps me motivated.

I haven't found any spiral or boneless hams that don't contain sugar in the ingredients (excluding the glaze, that's a given).

If you come across one please let me know!

Spinach blended into my morning shake and a probiotic seem to do the trick for me.

Great NSV! Love fitting into smaller clothes, being surprised by the size and having them fit comfortably - WTG!
Hopefully, you'll never be ready to wear those type of grandma pjs - lol!

Good Luck on your WI
Totally great decision to stay 100% on IP products. I mostly went to alternatives for the selection (not the cost, although that's nice too). I wasn't a big fan of a lot of the IP drinks and puddings; I guess I'm pickier than I thought lol. I wanted to find more options for non-restricted items and I did with alternatives.

I am looking at that as an "opportunity to use my 'stores'!"
Love just keepin' on keepin' on!
Good Luck with your WI.
Did you have a 4rth packet over the weekend when you did extra physical work? It's important for your muscles!

I have to buckle down and start training for the Tough Mudder because I really want to complete every obstacle! I'm kinda scared of the monkey bars and anything else that will require me to lift my body weight with my arms!
Great NSV! Please, still participate even if you haven't been 100%. This site is meant to be supportive in all apsects of everyones WL journey. And I believe that there is a large spectrum within our audience: on one side are the die hard 100% who think this is the easiest process ever and on the other end are the people struggling and don't feel like they will be able to make it one more day. All of us on this spectrum are important and worthwhile. The ones that are struggling need to hear from one another so they don't feel alone in this process. Hang in there! We're here for ya! Jen
Tough Mudder.....WOW - one of these days I want to do something like this!
Yeah, I wish those monkey bars were as easy as when we were kids! I know that my upper body is so much weaker than my lower body; wish that wasn't the case - something I'll have to work on down the road.

Thanks for checking in. April 16th is just around the corner - Hang in there! Great job on 32 lbs lighter; you must feel awesome!

Great NSV. It does get easier.... the being around tempting food and saying "no". If it doesn't bother you too much, I really like to serve the dessert, it makes it a lot less noticeable that you aren't having any. And by the time you are done serving, people are already finishing and no one notices that you don't have a plate or aren't having any.

Congrats on getting below the 170's - that's Awesome! WTG! Was the cheat day something your coach recommended or did you plan it?
Most IP'ers chose not to cheat or have any "cheat days" - have you seen the "cost of cheating" Thread?
*note - not judging or guilting you..... Just wanted to make you aware. It seems some coaches include "cheat days" and beginning IPer's don't realize that this is not the "norm". Jen

Measurements will depend on personal taste and amount of spinach.

Bunch of clean, dry spinach (With stems removed)
Oil (Olive, Grape Seed, ect.)
Chili Powder
Cumin
Garlic Powder
Nutritional Yeast
Pinch of Salt and Pepper
Ah, but nutritional yeast is not on the P1 sheet. I just looked up nutritional info and it isn't 0/0/0 so it doesn't qualify there, either. Sure sounds good, tho! I'll remember it for maintenance!

After a good WI again yesterday, I am even MORE motivated to stay 100% OP...love seeing the results and cannot wait to get past the 160 block I have always had...hopefully in 2 more weeks I will be back in the 150s!

Seems like temptations are everywhere, but finding a way to be prepared has helped me get through all of them so far. It is such an exhilarating feeling to be strong even when everyone else is eating something you can't!

My hardest temptation so far has been FRUIT. I want it so bad !! I hope I will be done and on maintenance when all the fruit comes into season this summer.

Thanks, Jen! You are always so supportive! The funny thing is that I don't feel like I am struggling really bad... I do great 5 1/2 days/week..then Friday night and all of Sat just find myself following the rules a little too loosely. i am aware that it is slowing my losses but I do it anyways! LOL But even if the scale isn't moving, the notches on my belt are so I still must be doing something right!

I am really not looking forward to the monkey bars since they will prolly be situated over a big pit of ice water! I'd really like to be able to get across without swimming!

I've never been one to crave fruit but this diet is def making me miss it! I've been having peach tea with a squeeze of lemon to substitute for juice...it almost works! LOL

These sound great! I had asked here about nutritional yeast before and the general consensus was that it isn't okay for P1. I still want to try it but I can't find it anywhere! Does it give you that bit of cheese flavor?
I haven't tried these yet so I can't speak to the flavor.

I thought I would give them a try without the nutritional yeast. I don't really know what that will add, or detract from the recipe.
