So, this weekend is Thanksgiving here in Canada... Will be making a stuffed chicken with all the fixings for my husband and sister...

I will still be ok to eat the chicken even though it has been stuffed, right? Probably a silly question, but just curious. I would only be eating the breast meat. I have cubed turnip in the freezer as well, so I am going to make myself mashed turnip and broccoli.

I am strictly using alternatives this time around. I think if you add a few in here and there you will feel more confident in using them. And you are right, tonnes of info on them here!

If it is tight muscles in your jaw causing the pain, put the tip of your tongue to the roof of your mouth and press it up there as hard as you can for 30-45 Mississippi's. About 20 seconds in it should get harder to do because of fatigue. It forces your jaw muscles to tire and relax.

Today is my fifth month anniversary on IP, and I have managed to slowly but surely lose 50 pounds during this time. My progress is a lot slower than most people on IP, but this is the first time in my life that I've ever been able to lose 50 pounds in 5 months, so I'm celebrating by staying 100% OP!!

Thank you so much for the tip. It is from two dental appointments in two weeks. I am wearing my bite splint and trying to eat softer foods, for the most part. No raw veggies this week for sure.

Good morning everybody,

Hope all of you are doing well.

Reading about the Xanthan gum used as a thickener, I would like to tell everyone who is using alternatives that I used Xanthan gum and guar gum to turn any protein powder into a pudding, this way I have much variety of having pudding instead of just a shake and I find it tastes better this way and I like the fact that I eat the pudding vs drinking my meal.

What I do is I add a little bit (about 1/8 of tsp) of both xanthan and guar gum to the scoop of protein, and I prepare this exactly like I prepare the more expensive packaged protein puddings I used to buy from IP or Nashua, just mix with some water and I get this kind of elasticy mixture (which I don't mind) of a pudding.

I find that preparing my pudding this way saves me tons of money, it's been a while that I did not buy package protein, I still have some pudding and some soups, but my aim is not to buy any more packaged stuff.

My next goal is to create my own soup mixes made with unflavored protein. If it will be a success, I will post about it.

Have a good day everyone.

Good Morning Lovelies!!!

I had and NSV this morning!!! I felt great walking the dog this morning and I had a bit of a spring in my step. So I tried on a pair of heels that I bought and never wore because the weight made my joints and feet hurt in heels. And I feel AWESOME in them. I feel stable walking which is a nice change because I would wobble if I wore heels before IP. Once I get back from vacation I'm going to go shopping in my closet and try on all my shoes I bought but never wore, lol.

Make it a good day Lovelies!!!

It's a great feeling to be able to shop in your own closet picking out things you were unable to wear before!!

Hey Susie!!! I'll be in Canada celebrating my first Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend too!!! It should be interesting since I don't know what kind of foods my SIL makes for the holidays. Plus it's the first time I'm meeting DH's siblings and their families so I don't want to offend. We're going to be there all day so I'll just have to keep my IP foods handy and hope there is at least some salad, lol!!!!

10lbs and month is awesome! - and the magical 50 number is pretty awesome too
for some reason I always think of 10lb bags of potatoes - next week when I hit 40lbs I may just go to the grocery store and haul 4 of those bad boys around for a while to remind me!
