Hello lovely.
I know exactly what your going through. I've had a rough couple weeks. Probably close to a month were I combated all different options...even phasing off. I mainly did some P 2 days to shake the body a little and to satisfy the mind as well. Idk what changed but I broke through the mental and physical battle and started losing again. I also feel ready again to finish. I'm glad I didn't phase off. I was so sad to be "dieting" for the first time through this journey. I think I may have been stalling my own body. Switch lunch and dinner if that helps. Add flavor to your water if it helps you drink more. Know you are not alone and whar your going through is normal. Hang in there, you'll make it pass this. Trust in yourself that you can. Hugs.

I am trying to think of good 'rewards' for myself as I reach my interim goals. I like the new lingerie idea - probably once I reach goal though! Anyone have other ideas? I'm thinking every 10 lbs. Just something little - cost-free or minimal.

Good evening all. Had my WI yesterday and happy with my 2lb loss.
Tried the Cookie Dough swirl tonight, it was ok. but I prefer my wafers..lol

I work in IT at our local College and yesterday and today all the students were back for orientation. It's always wonderful to see the new faces and have the building almost hum again after the quiet of summer. It has been an exhausting two days but I will be heading home in a few minutes after a 12 hr shift, putting my pj's on and snuggle with my hubby and puppy.
All I can say, life is good.

I hope everyone has a wonderful night.

I have a cooking question...I want to make zucchini cakes, but the only way I've made them is sauting/frying in a small amount of oil. Has anyone made these a different way that might be more IP friendly? I try to do 100% OP & don't want to mess this up just because I want some zucchini cakes.

I baked some very thin boneless pork chops in theWF BBQ sauce this evening for dinner . My sweetie was impressed! He ate 4! ( he has the metabolism of a race house) he had some pasta and green beans. I had broc and cauliflower

I'm finding that I've been hungover the last couple of days. Trying to make sure I eat at least every 2-3 hours but don't wanna go over the 4 cups of veggies.

What are some of the lower carb iP options you all use for. These type of days?

My question is - what supplements are absolutely necessarily? I feel like I don't have to take the Anti-Oxy's and I'd rather save money than spend. I don't want to ask my coach in case she pushes me to buy, buy, buy.
I am a Pharmacist and on the weekend when I was slow at work I found equivalent supplements to the multivitamin and calmag. They are:

Jamieson Vitavim Super (red box) and 14.97 for 90. You only take one per day versus two of the ip multi.

Jamieson Calcium Magnesium with Zinc, I forget how much and how many tabs, but cheaper than ip anyway! This one you take two instead of four per day. This is what I'm using now.

I have found those also and I spoke to my coach about it (she is understanding about the cost) and she said to look in to Jamieson vitamins because not all vitamins are created equal and that the quality/absorption rate isn't very good quality. She even went so far as to say if I did want to find an alternative I should go to a health food store to find a quality vitamin? I just kept using the IP vitamins.

...Now I'm not a pharmacist and know NOTHING about this stuff so please don't think I'm disputing you (or your 7 years of university!!) just passing along what my coach said to me!

Ugh, rough day today. Busy at work, my son's first day of school, had to work late...<sigh>.

I didn't cave though, stayed 100% OP. I had IP raspberry jelly with a spoonful of WF marshmallow dip on it for my snack - that felt like a "cheat" and made me feel better

Here's to tomorrow being a better day.

As far as my knowledge goes....Jamieson should not have any different absorption than any other brand. Just another way for them to push their overpriced vitamins to customers. Just my professional opinion. Don't get me wrong I love IP...just not the cost of their stuff!

Thanks for the tips

I think I'll stick with the IP Multi, Cal-Man, and Potassium for now. Until I have time to do the research. But I'll stop taking the Anti-Oxy's and find a suitable Omega (I have some liquid fish oil/flavoured stuff in my fridge I need to use up anyways)

Are you thinking like a fritter? I mix 1 cup shredded zucchini (dried in a towel) with pancake mix, 2 egg whites, 1/2 teas. of salt, pepper, baking powder, a pinch of red pepper flakes and a lttle dried onion. Spoon into skillet sprayed with cooking spray. I get about 7 dollar sized pancakes. YUMMY!
