Thank you, and I did. Sorry, I haven't had a chance to reply. I can't wait until the morning but am still a little nervous.

Sending you hugs. I am so sorry to hear about this loss. Stay strong for yourself and your coworkers. Perhaps doing something for the family would make you feel better. Regardless, here's a big for you.

I would have been on fewer weeks, but I went on a 10 day vacation and ended up just maintaining. I am now DONE! I phased off the month of October after changing my goal weight (up 5 lbs) because I could see my ribs and I was already buying X-small clothes and size 4 pants and skirts! While on Phase 2 AND 3, I LOST more weight! So, I'm really glad I phased off when I did. Since being on Phase 4, I've gained about 4-5 lbs. I'm good with it! I'm still skinny And, still wearing my skinny clothes!!!

I just want to encourage everyone to stay on the program. DON'T Cheat!!! It will only prolong your success! You CAN do it!!!
You look wonderful!!

Should I be an optimist and buy a size 8 while they're on sale? I'm thinking about buying a pair and keeping the tags on until they fit. I just feel silly buying another pair of 10s while I'm on a diet, but I really want some grey jeans while they're on sale!
Yes - yes - yes - buy the size 8 jeans. Great incentive for you.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm going to buy them tomorrow. Hopefully they fit by Christmas so I can wear them over the holidays!

Actually daklls, I am changing my position. Don't be strong if you don't want to be. If you need to cry, cry. If you need to scream, do it (but maybe find a pillow or a private spot). Own those emotions and you'll come through it.

this is a vvery good idea! did think about that!

Doing something helpful for the family is the best thing you can do for you and them. Action is so much better than just sitting & becoming overwhelmed about the situation. Take care!

My stomach has been violently growling today Have had twice as much water to drink as usual too. I wonder if my body is using more calories trying to fight it off this chest cold. Really made me want to cheat today. It's easy to feel sorry for yourself when you're sick! I rushed home from work and made myself a couple hard boiled eggs. I'll eat the rest later for dinner with asparagus. Bah, and my stomach is still growling after those eggs!

Go easy on the alcohol. You will find you can not drink much. You may not feel very good the next day. I speak from experience. Otherwise congrats on getting to P3

Maybe that's a good thing!
I totally agree. This cold weather is for the BIRDS! It is not helping me shake the cough, either.

First WI is for me today. I stood on the scale at home today and it showed a loss of 5.2lbs. Not as big of a Week 1 loss as some folks, but I'm pretty happy with it considering I was eating 90% paleo (so very low carb) prior to starting IP.

Will be curious to see if I lost any inches at my appointment today. My hips feel skinnier but my middle doesn't. I know this diet doesn't encourage exercise but I think I need to do a few planks to tone up.
I agree, NOLASmurf, take that sick/ mental health day if you need it. And YesPositively, i am with you thinking about the toning. I have done a few workouts for toning, but no cardio yet. Congrats on your loss!

Woot, woot! Enjoy that phase three, and congrats on making it to that point.

Overall, I'm really proud of myself for sticking to it. I had to watch all of my friends eating TONS of food, and all I could think about was "and we wonder how we've all gotten fat." It was enlightening to watch how people eat on the ship. It's INSANE the amount of food that people eat while on board....and I used to pig out right along with them.

I weighed in yesterday afternoon, and I was thrilled that I lost 3.2 pounds while we were gone!! While all of my girlfriends were whining about being bloated, having swollen fingers, and their pants getting too tight from all the food, they commented that the jeans I had just picked up THE DAY BEFORE the trip were already getting too loose. Talk about motivation to keep OP!
WOW! Congrats and THANKS for the inspiration! There is so much of it on the board today. You rocked that cruise and deserve those losses. I am sure it feels good!

Too funny! I am so gonna have an English muffin when I get to phase three.

So sorry to hear that. You and your co-workers are in my thoughts. That is rough for anyone.

I hope everyone's making it through this week well. Continuing my OP journey and TWO NSV's to report today. First, one of my co-workers came into the lunchroom and told me that I look skinner today than the last time she saw me (last Thursday). She commented on how noticeable it was and how good a job I am doing. That made my day!

Second, I am wearing size ten jeans tonight for the first time in years, perhaps decades! Yay! So thrilled!

Great NSV's! Doesn't it feel great when someone notices how hard you have been working?

Love the cold blast in the south today! WI was great...I'm starting phase 2 in the morning!! My biggest concern is fitting in the additional 8 oz of protein...yes, I know I'm deleting a protein pack, but I have to wrap my brain around this & make a game plan.
