Default Weigh in Wednesday...(or Thursday lol)

Hi girls: Sorry I missed Weigh in Wed. I actually stayed off the computer yesterday as I had a REALLY busy day in town.
Anyhow, this morning I was 132.5 (down from last Wed, but up from the in between days lol)
Still maintenance without stress

Hope you all are doing well!

Just a note about the Vega smoothie powder - check the Nutrition Facts Label, because some of them are 'Energizing' - like the berry one which means more carbs and some are protein powders like the Tropic Tango. I think the Chocolate one is protein focused too, but I don't know about vanilla...

Oooo... For breakfast today I decided on a new mix - 1/2 WF peanut spread and 1/2 chocolate Powerplant sprouted seed spread. OMG, it's like chocolate nutella and seriously delish on my GF Millet Chia toast. Anyone on maintenance will love this as a treat. I have to throw a little extra protein in there though, maybe a smoothie.
Powerplant is organic, raw, vegan, gluten/peanut free and kosher if that's your need. Made in Kelowna, BC (100 mile diet for me). Here's their website: http://www.powerplantwholefoods.com/ - not cheap but seriously delicious and if you are into health type foods you will like this. Sprouted flax, hemp, pumpkin, and chia with added hemp protein. They have free shipping over CAD$70.00.

Sunny & 24C here today, hope your weather is approaching spring finally... all you central & eastern IPeeps.

I lived in cloverdale for four years before coming back to Ontario. I really loved living in BC.

Default Challenge Weigh in Wednesday?

Hi all, bringing this thread to the top, lol. Don't forget the challenge...

Today I weighed in at 131.4. Hope your week has been profitable, all you chickies! Greetings to the girls out east... Today I'm planting my hanging baskets (although, I will have to be careful - it was 0 degrees this morning ). That & a long walk to the library with a friend.

I feel like it is just you and me here lately!

I had to weigh in on Monday since my coach was going away. Worked out well for me. Two days early and still down 3.5 pounds. When I checked this morning there was no change.

To my fellow Canadians doing alternatives, Walmart allows nationwide price matching and Lawton Drugs has pure protein bars on for $1 each this week! You can find the flyer under the flyers tab on smartcanucks.ca. I had 11 coupons to save $1 on two, so picked up 22 for $0.50 each plus tax! Even without the coupon $1 each is still a great price! They are regular $1.87 each at walmart.

Hey Shrinkingsusie-- I feel like I'm watching one of those "Extreme Coupon" shows reading your deal. Good for you for the initiative (and thanks for the tip!) I was in Walmart tonight and almost bought the bars -- a box was $7.97 but I don't remember if there are 4 or 6 in the box.

My fave are the peanut butter ones. I keep buying the pack at Walmart that that's the three flavours and everyone in the family always eats the pb first. I am nit buying anymore until the test are gone.

There are six in the box, so with price matching that sale it works out he best. My favorite is the one in the brown package, tastes just like a brownie. The purple package is like cookie dough and the yellow is good cuz it has peanuts so it gives it a bit of a crunch. They also have two different kinds in white packaging. The cookies and cream one tests very chemical to me, but the other reminds me of a wonder bar. since starting IP I have really gotten into price matching and couponing to replace snacking and save money. Vegetables can get expensive but with price matching, my grocery bill is ridiculously low. I often get three English cucumbers for $1, two bunches of celery for $1, cauliflower for under $1. It is amazing how much money you can save.

Hi Canadians. I've not posted in a bit. My weight loss slowed...probably because I've been complacent about Phase 1 for a couple of weeks. I feel great and look pretty good, getting lots of compliments and people asking why I need to lose more.On top of that, there's lots of stuff happening in June where well...pretty much every weekend will involve a celebration which I'd like to partake in. So instead of adding having to be on Phase 1 during those functions to my sick and tiredness of it all, I've decided to phase off. Realistically I think the extra 20 pounds that i have to lose may be a little dreamlandy...10 might be more like it. So once I'm in "maintenance", I will still be watching what I eat...eating clean, watching carbs and getting back into full fledged exercise. If that doesn't take the 10 or so off, then I may come back to Phase 1 for a while. We'll see. Best diet EVER.

Hey girl, don't drop us totally, stay on the maintenance threads so you can still feel a little accountable or things could get out of hand. Not sayin' they will, but you know how things go... Phase off properly, then go maintenance, then later if you need to, lose the last 20. Don't just suddenly drop the diet to 'eat normally.'

Have a good time at all your functions, just remember it's about the people, not the food.

Oh no, I'm not just going straight to maintenance. I am phasing off. I'm in Phase II right now. I don't plan to drop off the board either. Though I do admit, I just started a new job a couple of weeks ago and it's got me a little overwhelmed, so in my spare time I don't get on too often. I will be good, I promise.
