I believe she is on Medifast and not IP. I know that they have a 5 and 1 plan...it is 5 supplements and 1 lean and green meal.

I seriously just choked down a mixed greens salad with cucumber and onion on it...DRY...yuck! I did it though...I am at work and wanted to make sure I got my veggies in...guess I didnt realize how many of my usual fixings on a salad are not allowed. Note to self....bring your own salad and dont forget the WF dressing that is sitting at home in the fridge!
Usually go for a 4 mile fast walk on lunch...had to turn that down too. It's OK though....when Ketosis kicks in and the weight starts falling off I can say hello to beach body this summer!

Good morning! I'm happy to see that a lot of folks had a great OP weekend and things are going well!
I am very proud of myself, I stayed away from all the temptations this weekend, I honestly didn't think I could do it.
A nice NSV for me....I went shopping on Saturday for some slacks/work clothes and was very pleased to find that I'm actually in a size 8 now! UN-Freakin'-beliveable!! I haven't been this size since before college. Wow. What an accomplishment.

I've learned to fix my own salad and a side of dressing the night before for my husband. It helps him not feel compelled to eat something not OP and it's easy for him when lunch time rolls around. We keep telling ourselves the same thing...once summer comes around...we'll be looking great!

Congrats! I actually had the same thing happen on Saturday -- last time I was this size was in high school!!

I am really struggling with things right now. I have 15 lbs left, and for some reason the last week I have been absolutely starving. I'm thinking about food constantly and just really hungry. I haven't had this happen the whole time I've been on IP, and I just don't know what's going on. I have stayed OP, but I'm really having a hard time not eating a bunch of bars!!

It seems silly but I was so thrilled I said 'do it again do it again'. lol.

Hope everyone is having a good day.
I'm so happy for you! I know the fear of the bikini . I have not been in one since my honeymoon almost 8 years ago. One of my goals is to lose enough to get back into one and be comfortable by our 8th anniversary in August.

Love you NSVs!

Having a hard time after Easter and traveling to Disneyland. I haven't completely broken every rule but it would be easier after driving for 5 hours!

Still losing slowly (at least more slowly than I was initially) on the scale, but losing inches.

I'm traveling this week and this will be my first big challenge while on this diet. I'm planning ahead and I have let my traveling partner know that my eating will be restricted in many ways, but that doesn't mean we can't have a great time.

Send travel weightloss sparkles and confetti my way!

I dunno that I will ever be confident enough for a bikini, but good for you rocking it out with the new body girlie!

You can make a latte with vanilla drink. It's pretty good
Toss that milk. It'll go to waste or waist.
You didn't gain but what could you have LOST over the weekend?
Sorry you don't feel good.
Cheats just SO aren't worth it!
Find an OP way to scratch the itch!
Normally I have vanilla latte using the vanilla drink. IT was totally not worth it. IT tasted great, but was not worth three days of getting back to where I need to be. I pretty much lost a week.

OMG! The SAME EXACT thing has been happening to me! I have not had this problem all through the past 25 weeks on program, but all of a sudden in the past week, I'm absolutely STARVING! It has been a real struggle.

Default Slippery Slope

I am starting week 9 and down 25 lbs. We were away Easter weekend at the beach and I found it VERY hard to stay on program. You see, I am really addicted to popcorn and it presented itself. I made up this game in my head that I could have it because I was being so good and not having the kids candy - ugh! I am up one pound this morning from Friday morning, and I am sad and struggling to stay OP today. I am kind of outside my body. I had to find our the hard way that is it true what all the folks on this forum say, the cheat causes so much havoc - it is just not worth it.....
I just needed to vent and pray that I can get back on program and be HAPPY.

You and I are obviously in sync! I really have no idea what to do other than muddle through, but it is definitely a big struggle. I am glad to be in the office today--at home I found myself having a little extra protein.

I am hopeful this feeling will pass soon. I wonder if it's our bodies freaking out a bit from not being this tiny in so long (20 years for me). My coach had no idea, and I think suspected I went off program which is not the case.
