Wow, 15 pounds in 3 weeks!!!! Keep it up!!

WI today lost 4 lbs. It was my 7th week for a total of 23! My coach said I could start walking three or four times a week now. Any thoughts on adding exercise at this point?

That person isn't on IP, he is following his own plan.

The spaghetti squash is not allowed on IP phase 1.

Good for you, Joco! As far as the exercise goes, my opinion is do it but don't overdo it. From reading the boards and what my coach has told me you can feel free to do activity that isn't strenuous or doesn't make you break out in a sweat or cause elevation in your heart rate. If you do a tougher workout you'll need to supplement those lost calories with an extra unrestricted packet. Lol, I think I've got that right!

I know from my own personal experience that overdoing it and not replacing calories properly may have been the cause of a very temporary stall.

I hope this makes sense!

Congrats! on losses!
JOCO and Jen!

Way to go Safetylady!! Enjoy P3!!!

I'm on P4 10 days now, so far so good!
Still doing P3 breakfasts and slowly adding to my dinner, and some
fruit for snack.

Fitness Pal is like my best friend, along with
this site and all you great people!!

Been having fun shopping for clothes, but I still find myself looking at
styles that hide weight that I dont have anymore, too funny!

thanks so much!

Have a good nite,

D

Default carb counting anyone??

Is anyone counting their carb grams per day, and if so what are they running??

I found some numbers in my clinic handouts that don't seem accurate, because even eating all non-restricted you could be over that amount.

I didn't find a thread about this...

As most of you know, I'm fairly new at this. I am wondering if I used an egg with my veggies (I want to try my hand at cauliflower tortillas), how many oz do I subtract from the amount of meat I should eat that evening?

Nervous about WI tomorrow. I've been struggling with staying OP. I feel like I'm sabotaging myself once a week so that I don't have to go to phase 2! Maybe it's a fear of maintenance. I can't wait to see what really happens tomorrow. Maybe the exercise has kept me in the game!

I am new at this and all I can say, I admire your numbers on the left side to these words.
There are 90+ lb dividing me from where you are now! Please congratulate yourself, and say thank you to yourself. Even with a tough week you are still doing it! If you had it up until now, then you still have it very much in you!

You can do it!
