It feels so wonderful to stick to the IP plan, and see the pounds coming off. I am approaching my TOM and find not as much lbs coming off. I normally don't eat that much during my TOM so this should be interesting. Motivation for me to feel better about myself, feeling in control of my emotions and what I eat, aswell my beautiful twin boys. Plus our family is going on holiday on Jan 27, 2014 so I also want to be healthy and smaller by then (3 months). Enjoy your Monday. Waiting paitently to get my ticker after 20 days on the 3FC forum, I am told "it" being the "ticker" will just appear as my signature. Here's to hoping.

Thanks!
That is what I am finding around TOM - scale slow to move.... But I do think it will show just a bit later.

You can go get your ticker now, you've made 20 posts. click "User CP" in the upper left corner and click :Edit Signature" that is where you pick out your ticker.

Nolasmurf hope you feel better soon. I have had a persistent cough for three weeks and just went on prendisone, a steroid for asthma to get rid of it. It is exhausting.

Ruth4three, so far I have had a different experience in the sat two months. One pound the week leading up to it and 6lbs this time. I think the loss usually balances out in the month. Hang in there

I think you did an awesome job and a real example of making good choices and self control in the real world. I this speaks to how successful you will be on maintenance

Good morning all. Hope everyone is going along well! I turned off the computer this weekend, except to log my food on MFP. It felt really nice. I was super-productive with cleaning, laundry, hiking, hanging out, errands, etc. I enjoyed it. Back to the grind now - not that 3FC is a grind. I went swimming last night, easily for the first time in over a year. It felt great. I didn't push it, went slow and worked on technique. I also developed my plan to get ready for my 1st 5k mid-January, in connection with the holidays, snowboarding - and start on Thursday with Day 1 of the C25K (Couch to 5k) program. Definitely looking forward to it and got my new running shoes. Woot!

Anyhow, looking forward moreso to P3 now, but am still really nervous. Time to take the training wheels off, I suppose.

You can use the EAS Carb Advantage drinks, generally find-able at pharmacies, walmart, target, etc.

sarahBell I am going to pick up a few Quest bars -- I don't have any restricted items left so I will use these as my third item. I am definitely stocking up on Wednesday so this doesn't happen again. I think I'm going to pony up for six boxes so I have a nice supply.

So glad you are starting C25k! I know how excited you were to begin. I got through week 3 and have slowed down... mostly because it's been really cold out by the time I get home from work. You are doing phenomenal - hoping to follow in your foot steps soon enough!

Happy Veteran's Day everyone, am proud to say that I am a US Air Force Veteran.

Yesterday, the cutest thing happened to me. Was at a party, had my shake before we went, so made a plate of salad greens and broccoli. A little 5 yr old looked at my plate and said, "Your dinner is very green." Love it.

Are you near a Whole Foods? Their 365 vanilla protein powder in the blue container is nutritionally almost identical to the IP one.

Many people use shakes from GNC which can be purchased individually too.

You can always eat eggs whites to replace a packet. Just be sure you have enough to equal 15g of protein.

Thanks. I think I'll go with eggs since I have them at home (off work today because of Veteran's Day). I am close to WF but it's super gross out today and threatening to snow. I'm glad to know the protein powder is a close match though. Maybe I'll pick some up if the price makes sense just to have around.

Hi all! It's Remembrance Day here in Canada, which means a long weekend.

Just waiting to hear whether or not my sister will be getting out of the hospital today. I hope she does, it's easier to heal when you're at home in your own bed.

I'm trying the pulled chicken in the crockpot recipe but with pork - yum! Have to help my son with a diorama today <sigh>. He needs to diagram a poem they are reading about eating while reading, kind of torn on this one, lol!

Have a great IP day!
Jo

Time to get some cold weather gear and a headlamp! I routinely will run with gloves and a hat, although I tend to take them off as a warm up (I get really warm). Hope we are both able to get out there and get 'er done!
