Good Morning Fellow IPers!!

Question: where do I find xantham gum, and how is it used? I've seen it mentioned to use as a thickener?

Lisa, I'm having half my protein for lunch today, and the other half for my dinner with rotini Such an easy solution that never crossed my mind. Duh! I like having a more substantial dinner when I get home from work, and I also like saving my last packet for a bedtime "snack" - a mocha smoothie with decaf - so this is the perfect solution to get my 3 packets in yet space things the most beneficially throughout the day.

Have a great day, everyone!

I make my own pudding and soup packets ( because of no soy) and use it for the thickener.
I buy Bobs Red Mill brand at my supermarket
It is spelled xanthan

Love IP Power! And congrats on getting closer to P2!

Happy Thursday all! Another day closer to the weekend - woohoo! I have my 1 week follow up with the eye surgeon this morning then a couple of meetings <yawn>.

Made a nice soup for lunch today - chicken broth from the last chicken I cooked with cabbage, peppers, zucchini, leeks and some fresh cilantro. Having that with potato puff rolls - yum!

Good morning all....I am off to a great and wonderful day. First of all, I hit my goal this morning (at least on my scale) and on my birthday! My kids bought me a Lulu Lemon outfit that was wayyyy too BIG and I need to exchange for a smaller size (that happens NEVER) and I don't look like a giant sausage stuffed in the pants.

DH is making me a special total IP approved dinner tonight.

Yup, I'm one lucky girl today!!! I have NEVER made goal on a weight loss program in my life!!!!

Good Morning Lovelies!!!

Yesterday we had torrential rain down here but this morning the sky is clear and sunny (which does WONDERS for my disposition, lol). Plus, when I woke up and looked in the mirror I am NOTICEABLY slimmer this morning (RIGHT ON!!!)

I had 4 songs rotating in my head this morning but the last one is "Safe and Sound" by Capital Cities...been humming it since I got in the office.

Just finished swapping some IP food packets with my co-worker, lol. It was like we were kids swapping trading cards, hahahahaha!!! Our boss (a male) walked by and just shook his head, lol.

So far I've had a good start to my morning and I feel GREAT!!!

Congrats to all you Lovelies and have a great OP day!!!!!

Congrats to everyone on their successes! IP is incredible!

If anyone has heard the quote of "the roots of education are bitter but the fruit is sweet" can relate that to this program. Its bitter at times and brings about a lot of challenges during the process. However, the end result, the fruit of your labor if you will is sweet and so satisfying, rewarding, and worth it!

YAY!

Everyone:

Can you commit to ONE 100% on-plan day today? Absolutely no cheats whatsoever?
One thing leads to another...

You so totally made me smile today Your jubilance SPILLS off the screen!

I loved the "that happens never" comment and such a wonderful birthday present (goal)!

I have never reached goal on a diet either. I still haven't but I have every confidence b/c I have learned self-control (and I'm smaller than I've ever gotten)! You rocked this plan!



And many, many, more!

I am enjoying all the enthusiasm here - it is infectious! I have to go for a work lunch today - which I used to enjoy - but now it just makes me irritated because I have to miss my carefully allotted baggie of cucumbers and a protein drink! No worries though, I've already sussed out the menu where I'm going and have a plan, I'd just rather stay at my desk
