Good morning all! A nice long holiday weekend coming up complete with friends, family, social activities and FOOD challenges. How do you veterans cope day to day? Moment to moment? Going to need some inspiration to stay the course 100 percent! All advice welcome!

Plan ahead! Prepare your food ahead.
Know what the meals will be.
Bring things you CAN have
Bring packets, bars, snacks.

I'm always the one who brings a veggie tray (that way it contains OP veggies, instead of carrots and mini tomatoes).
Save your restricteds for events. Don't have them for breakfast.
Only eat select veggies at home. That way you don't have to worry if occasional veggies are served when you are out.

Focus on the people and not on the food.
Remember what we are really gaining and what we are really losing (we're missing out on NOTHING except the lbs falling off of us)

I prepared/planned well in advance for all special events last Fall. If you aren't planned for weekend activities, do it today! Make sure you have all of the products you need to carry out your plans. Give yourself time for cooking/chopping/food prep.

Good morning and Happy Hump day.
Been struggling a lot emotionally with the diet. I am managing to stay OP but having a mini pity party for a moment each day. I feel like summer is almost over and I've missed some of the best parts of it. Must buckle down for the last 6 lbs.

Default Day 6

I'm looking forward to my first WI tomorrow!

I'm wondering -- how detrimental is it to not get in all the food you're supposed to in a day? My work day today will be spent driving from one site to another, with meetings while I'm not driving. So breakfast was no problem, but lunch is going to be hard to work in since I didn't plan ahead well enough. I have my shaker and a yogurt mix so I can probably manage that much, but it's really not feasible to eat a salad while driving! :-)

My coach limited my first week selections so I don't have any bars or easy-to-take IP products.

So, when I fix dinner tonight (stir fry -- yum!!), do I make up the vegetables from lunch or just skip them?

Have a great day, everyone!

Like Lisa said - planning is key. Have a Plan A, a Plan B and a "worst case scenario" plan. Don't show up at an event hungry!

Focus on the socializing and enjoy yourself. It is easy to feel sorry for yourself if you focus on what you can't have - but it is so rewarding when you stay OP and don't have those extra pounds in just a few days.

And read The Real Cost of Cheating up in the stickies - that's really good motivation.

Stay strong - you can do this!

Tuesday I had my first zero on the scale at my weigh-in. I'm just going to keep telling myself I'm retaining water because I have been 100% on plan since 07/04.

Monday I spent the day outside walking at a theme park and stayed on plan the whole day. The security guard opened my purse and saw my EAS Drinks and IP bars and then looked at me like I was crazy when I told him I was on a medically restricted diet and I couldn't eat the food in the park. They don't allow outside food to be brought in, but he let me take mine.

Had steamed veggies from Panda Express while DH ate 2 servings of Orange Chicken, Lo Mein and a soda. He felt sick to his stomach for the next two hours! Ha, ha. One day he'll learn.

Are you using a Calcium supplement that has magnesium in it? Switching to one that has Mg might help...if that's not enough, adding Mg Citrate capsules as needed helped me. Some folks need to add that daily...I do not. Also..make sure your veggies include broccoli and some of the highest fiber choices.

Uhhmmm.....good luck! This plagues most of us at some point......once you find what works for you...stick with it...!

I've been using the cal-mag supplement given tome by my coach 2 pills twice a day. Lots of broccoli and greens. I'll try the mg citrate

What's your thoughts on rotisserie chickens (ie. the pre-cooked full chickens you can buy at Safeway)? I haven't had it while I've been in IP. But when I used to have it, I always peeled off the skin and only ate from the white breast meat. You think this would be ok? (I dunno if they add some kind of injectables to the meat - that's why I'm asking). Just would make a quick easy dinner for me one night since I'm getting tired of cooking every day with my busy schedule this week.

Default Day One Done!!!

My first day went really well with the exception of a few random cravings during the day (sweet, salty, grilled steak )

Sleeping, however, was a whole other issue, lol. I went to be at my normal time but woke up two hours in with a HORRIBLE dull headache that would not go away!!! When I did doze off I had such bad, random dreams! Finally around 3:30 I put some Ideal Salt into some water and had that. The headache slllllllooooooowly subsided and I got some sleep. I hope tonight is better.

Have a good day everyone!!!

Don't skip them just have them for dinner. Sometimes it happens. You can also try putting spinach in a morning shake if you can't eat 4 cups in one sitting at night.
