I love seeing new volumes of this thread!

Had a big surprise - wasn't going to weigh in this week but my coach had time when I went to pick up stuff and over the last two weeks I have lost 3 lbs! I was aiming for just maintaining my weight through the tests and surgery so it was a big surprise that I lost. Didn't lose any inches in my abdomen but it's still pretty swollen from the surgery - I suspect it will go down too once I finish healing.

Thanks Crystal - I can't tell you how surprised I was!

That said, my biggest problem is actually remembering to eat everything right now. I'm just not hungry much - I suspect all the antibiotics, etc. have something to do with that along with the minor work they had to do on my stomach (besides repairing the hernia). I actually set reminders on my phone to help me out.

Mmmm, I miss Quorn! Will look forward to it in maintenance - man, does tofu and eggs get old after a while, even preparing it different ways! I look forward to adding some variety back in.

lighthouse101 oh don't I know it. The Morningstar products are ok, Litelife Smartdogs, Gardein, some of them. I have a few more days of P2 moving on to P3 this weekend. The scale / my body just doesnt want to give up those last 2 lbs. I am actually where I wanted to be but thought I should lose a couple more to gain back when I phase off. If I need to after the holidays I'll revisit P1 but I am NOT planning on it.

Ditto! My goal is 130 right now, but I am considering lowering it another 5 or so to account for the regain in maintenance. I guess I'll decide for sure once I get down there!

Being able to hang in there and phase off properly is a huge accomplishment. Maybe I should have said I admire everyone who has the determination to see it through!

Stupid move of the week - for some reason dh picked up frozen spinach instead of fresh at the market. And for some reason I just didn't convert the measurements and cooked two cups of frozen spinach. That was ALOT of spinach. So then I had to do the conversion. I think I got it close. Note to self: specify on the list what kind of spinach you want!

Third week WI complete success. My coach said there is only one other person besides me that she is currently working with that has stayed 100% OP. She said we both have amazing fat loss results. I told her the longer I'm OP, the quicker I get other stuff! I do not want to prolong Phase 1.

Have a great OP day!
