I use the Braggs in seasoning or marinade. I love to put it on my chicken before baking/grilling. I also put it in stir frys or cauli rice. Speaking of Cauli Rice, maybe I'll have it tonight...

Default Im back and actually trying hard~

Oh my goodness, I wonder if anyone else has stopped and restarted this program as many times as me, ugh!

I ended up gaining 20+lbs back. I just found out I have a family reunion in 12 weeks, so I am going to do this, I absolutely cannot go and be happy at this event looking the way I do. I want to look fit and toned up for this!!

Day three of no cheating, starting to feel like Im back in the swing of things, I grew really tired of feeling sick all the time when I was off IP, I was tired, super groggy, moody, depressed, achy, negative--thats what binge eating (especially on high gluten and sugar) does to me, I was having trouble working and thinking, my days off were a total waste because I would just lie on the couch all day and watch TV.

Hope to get back into ketosis so my hunger goes away.......Continuing to work on positive self talk, trying to stop the self abuse.

Good to be back, I will not disappoint you all or myself!

Thanks Lisa. It just seems like if Kale is 7 carbs per cup....19 carbs per serving (which is 1 cup) seems very high for those other ingredients.

I'm always so impressed when people might have a small slip off the wagon, but jump right back on to straighten things out! Hope you're feeling energetic and bright-eyed soon!

7 carbs per cup raw?
1 cup serving cooked?
Does this explain it?

hi all! Having a better day today. Snuck a peek at the scale and it looks like I lost about 2 lbs this week. wont go official until tomorrow.

My honey gave me the cutest compliment this morning when I got dressed for work. He said "Dang Slim, looking like a sex kitten!"

Mind you I'm in all black with heels and these ankle length skinny pants from Old Navy definitely make me look smaller, but still I was tickled by the comment. He's gotten a lot better about telling me what he thinks, because he knows I need that to keep pushing.

No, it's not cooked. Just raw kale dressed with garlicky dressing.

Ah Kale. You are the bane of my existence. I made kale chips during P1, and misjudged their carby-ness. Didn't make that mistake again. Curious if you swap swiss chard for kale in the recipe, SC has much fewer carbs.

I love this! That's gotta bring a smile to your face.

My #One Man is now saying...."I don't want you to lose any more weight. You look great at this weight."

Not that it is discouraging me in any way because I am really committed.....but it does make me feel good.

My coworkers want to know where my last 35ish pounds will come from. I simply respond with a "do you want me to strip down so you can see my body fat?!" Usually shuts them up. lol. Mind ya own business...I set my goal because I know it'll work for me and my happiness! I like that.

So I am confused on the Kale issue. I have been using it in my shakes at lunchtime @ 2cups for my veg serving at a time. I am on reboot P1, Is this causing me not too lose my weight as quickly as I could or have I totally misunderstood?? Help??

Talking I got my order from Nashua Nutrition!!!

Ok I had to order my restricted because I was running out. I made myself a cup of coffee and had the mocha wafers. OMG!! It was almost too much to eat!!! The package has 2 squares per foil pack talk about BONUS!!!!

I could break them into one square per day to make them last longer LOL. But they are super yummy!

On a side note did you guys know they make a liquid coffee flavoring (kinda like Mio)? I bought one it is 0/0/0 and the caramel flavor is so good! I measured out how much I put in and it was 1/4 of a tsp and flavored my coffee nicely. I cant see myself using them all the time just now and then but it tasted yummy!

Kale has a lot of carbs. 2 cups of kale is giving you 12 g of carbs, plus whatever is in your shakes. To avoid this, I used spinach in my shakes. Some of my best weeks' losses were when I consistently did spinach in my shakes for dinner.
