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.
Wow 150's, I haven't been there since right after high school. I have always been a huge fluctuator on the weight. So for your fruit craving have you had any rhubarb yet? This does it for me. I put frozen rhubarb on stove with some fresh ginger cut up really small and a couple tablespoons of water. I add cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice, and some stevia or splenda and cook until it's all broken down. Then I add wf syrup if it is still too tart. Great fruity feeling snack for me anyway. Way to stay strong.

Just starting packing and deciding what food items to bring. I kind of want to pack my coconut oil and stevia. Thinking about all the stuff my mom won't have. I know I am not going to be maintaining 100%, but the thought of not having some of my staples is also a little scary. I can't see me going a whole week without roasting some cabbage or cauliflower. Although will have to wait till my dad is out of the house he can't stand the smell. Hard to believe he did IP on mushrooms, peppers, green beans, and asparagus. That's it! And the majority was the mushrooms.

So today I got my height measured and am half an inch taller than I had guessed at when I started. I know as a teenager I was close to 5 foot 10, but also know I have shrunk a bit. Guess not as much as I thought. So that's good news as it brings me much closer to a non overweight bmi. Still some work to do though.

Congrats to all the people with good weigh ins and good luck to those heading to one.

WTG! I know how important seeing the change on the scale matters the first week when you are feeling so miserable "detoxing" from carb city. You NEED that motivation to justify continuing on. Hope that 4 lbs loss continues to grow at your first official WI. Good Luck!

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 did, actually. Thanks for checking on me! I really had to force it in, though, and then, after, I felt so full -- I didn't like it. That's kind of amazing, because just 7 weeks ago, I was eating at least 3 times what I am eating now -- and much worse food -- and thought nothing of it.

My arms are still aching today. That doesn't mean I should have another extra packet, though, does it?

Thanks again~

MrsKuby -- Good to see you! I have noticed your absence. Good for you on starting your workouts and getting your head straight first.

I don't think so.....I'd say no, but I will defer the question to one of the IP gurus.
However, if today or any other day you are still feeling hungy, but have had all your daily protocol food - I know that people will have a little extra protein, like egg whites, etc. Jen

ladylunk: Thanks for the idea. In the past I have tried rhubarb and hated it but now my tastes have changed so maybe I will try again!

iKande03: Isn't it awesome to feel like you are going to succeed! Way to go!

Ladylunk -- You must have read my mind as I have some frozen rhubarb that I have been wanting to make, but wasn't sure how yet. I don't have the supplies to make the crumble. I will do just what you wrote and may throw in the jicama to mellow it out a bit. Thanks so much!~

I'm feeling a bit weepy, sluggish, and moody today . . . perhaps this signals a whooosh?? (Lisa, how's that for positive reframing??!! )


I can't find an Easter ham I trust, either. I picked up a turkey breast -- I'll still make the ham (and other traditionals) for the others. I've just decided that, for myself, I am doing things differently this year - a means to an end. Next year, provided I stay OP, I will have more options.

Hi Canadian dieter, I did those stores, they were the short ones I would not like to bend over in haha. I guess I'll have to get a tank top and shorts. I am way too hot in t-shirts also. The joys of menopause. That's o.k.

I have to see about the caribean outfits. Thanks everyone.

Default Chicken Ala King Question

Hello everyone..... I hope you're all having a great day! So, I'm feeling great and all, but I think I packed my food wrong today. ( 2 unrestricted, 1 restricted) Maybe you all can answer that question for me.

Is the IP Chicken Ala King packet an unrestricted? If so, is there any real detriment to skipping my restricted for the day?

gottawork -

I hope you are out there or get this post........ I was traveling on Sunday and so I didn't check-in here. I was on yesterday; today had a few minutes and went back and read Sunday's Daily Chat. So, just now saw your posts......

If you are going to do the IP products (vs. alternatives), they are a little cheaper than the clinics, but still pricey. Here is how I worked the discount....

Note: Scorbett says that the amount you have to spend is now $165 (it used to be $75).

www.plainprotein.com? They use priority mail so you'll receive your order pretty quick from them. I have been able to use the month typed into the promo code box (doesn't seem to be case sensitive) to get a 10% discount. However, I don't know how much you have to spend to get it! Some people have said that the amount you have to spend can vary from month to month. If you can afford to spend a little.... When I want to place an order, I usually put in any item and choose a large quantity, say like 6 of them. If the discount shows up, then I will back off the quantity to 5 of them. And so on and so on, until I determine how much I HAVE to spend to get the discount. Then, I erase the order and start over with what I really want to buy and make decisions based on what I want and how much I have to spend. Hope this helps. Jen

Also, you don't have enough information on your personal profile for me to IM you. If you change this, feel free to IM me directly and I can get you the answer directly.
EVERYONE on here is great and can answer questions for you anytime.

Good Luck - please, keep posting and let us know how you are doing!!!

I've been lurking..just being extra careful not to post anything that might be construed as negative. I've been keeping an eye on you! You're doing great!
