Good morning! Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Went to visit my parents and my sister had smooth move tea - it worked wonders. I grabbed myself a box at Target. Just wondering how often everyone uses it? Just when you are feeling "backed up"?

Just when I'm backed up - I don't think it's a good idea or necessary to use it when everything is normal.

Good morning!! I weigh in on Mondays at home and Wednesdays with my coach, 2 more pounds gone as of this morning!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend, we spent ours around the house cleaning up the leaves in the backyard and getting all of the dog hair out of my house. We let our dogs in anytime it is 40 or below outside and lately that has been fairly often. The dog hair in my house was driving me bananas!! I looked at the weekly forecast today and it looks like they will back inside tonight, lol. Oh well I guess I will spend next Sunday (my birthday!) doing the same.

Happy Monday all. My house guests are gone so I'll be spending the day cleaning up again. Stripping beds washing linen etc.

I think for dinner I'll make some IP meatballs. Not sure what veggies to use. Maybe I'll go get some okra! I really thought it was a restricted veggie. Excited it's not

Good morning all. So I had a total meltdown yesterday - after having my phase 3 breakfast I worked out with my trainer at the gym, came home, had a phase 3 lunch but when I started to prepare for a dinner party, I 'found' a box of chocolate covered toffee candy and just kept eating it until I burst into tears. I quit, thought it was over. At dinner I was fine until dessert. I made a separate piece of fish without sauce, roasted veggies that were on the protocol but when the dessert platter was on the table, I just started helping myself to cheese, crackers and chocolate. It was like I couldn't help myself, my self-control went right out the window.

This morning, I feel like crap, both physically and mentally. I put myself back on Phase 1. My question is do I stay on phase 1 just for the day and go back to phase 3? I am trying really hard not to beat myself up, I have been so strict, and the only times I've gone off plan were deliberate - I planned for it. Yesterday was like WHAM back to the old way of furtively eating and then saying screw it. Which is very scary for me, I am very worried about sticking to maintenance and the 'losing it' last night was just scary. Any words of wisdom? I am in my last week of phase 3 and with 'eating for the rest of my life' looming, I'm freaking out.

I'm going to visit friends in a tiny village an hour away today (long weekend in BC) so I'm grilling my turkey breast and making myself a turkey salad for lunch. I've been getting a little lazy lately about planning, weighing meat etc.. so need to get strict with myself again so I can get off P1 as fast as possible!

Chin up. Maybe this is good. Next time you are tempted, remember how you feel now and ask yourself, "Is it worth it?" Only you will be able to answer that question. Forgive yourself and do better today.

Good morning - still battling a cold and this freakin' polar vortex we are living in does not help. My hands are so numb I just knocked over my hot cup of tea onto my keyboard. Not a great start to the day!

Had Weigh in number 5 and down another couple of pounds. Pretty excited for that. Did some experimenting in the kitchen this weekend and some pretty awesome results. Went to a chocolate and wine festival for my mom and sister's birthday. Got some pretty bad *** spice mixtures from a local gal that are amazing. When I get home I will get the name of the lady for my fellow Washintonions. Made myself some chicken fingers the other day that my DH was eyeballing. I gave him one and he was floored. He keeps making comments that he might be able to go OP if I cook the way I do for myself. We shall see.


Happy Monday everyone.

I think you should continue with phase 3 and keep moving forward. You have worked very hard and sometimes things happen. No need to beat yourself up...you are a CHAMP and have done amazing. The "damage" that you did will not be noticeable in my opinion. IP does great things for your metabolism and body so one indulgence when you have already lost the weight and starting with the initial part of maintenance will not make you gain weight. Day by day. There will be times when you over indulge and times when you are very much on point. Its a journey regardless of the phase and it will continue to challenge you but I am confident that you have all the necessary skills to continue to live a happy and healthy life!

Morning all. Day 6 of my reboot. In my 1 plus year of maintenance I have done phase 1 days/weeks here and there and found myself starving, dreaming of food, etc and even physically weak at points. For some reason, I am not experiencing it this time around. Any insights into this? Anyone else have this happen? Not sure if this is a good or bad thing?

Also, I am doing an EAS shake or two a day to save $$$ this time around since I am only doing 30 days. That being said, I have noticed the scale act funny even go up the last two days. Anyone else have this happen b/c the sodium content is higher. Should I add more water or reduce salt with food at dinner?

Good morning,

I am on day 4. I'm hoping the hungries that I experienced yesterday will lessen today. I am using alternative products to get off my last pounds. I use MFP. Could someone please direct me towards the correct ratios for carbs/protein/fat. I would appreciate your help!

Have a great day.
