I'm OP with alternatives. I couldn't stand my coach who didn't give a crap about me. I'd rather have that extra cashola in my pocket. The Alternative food is just as good if not better than IP food. I bought myself an Omron scale that measures weight & BMI and I am good to go

As of today I am down 25 lbs!!

My list I bought from Nashua Nutrition is as follows:

Honey Nut Soy Cereal (yum!)
Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal (yum!)
Bacon & Cheese Omelette (mmm...mmm...good!)
Plain Pancakes (i added vanilla extract, cinnamon and 1 stevia packet to the mix)
BBQ Protein Crisps (spicey sweet...yum)
Chipotle Protein Crisps (spicey!...yum)
White Cheddar Protein Crisps (i use them like croutons...yum)
Chicken Noodle Soup (taste like Liptons...yum)
Chocolate Fudge Cake Desert (OMG Delish!!)
Healthsmart Caramel Crunch Protein Bars (DA BOMB...mmm mmm mmm!)

The Vanilla Pudding I haven't tried yet but I will post if I like them or not after I eat them

Hoped this list helped some newbies with their alternative choices and maybe got some of you thinking about going alternative.

Yes, yes, yes! Down 3 lbs this week. I start week 5 today.

When I went to buy my food yesterday, I learned a few things.
1. I blend ice, water and packets in my Magic Bullet. I was told that that was not a good idea because it destroys the protein. Go figure. I would have never thought of that.
2. I can sign up for a coach forever here for $85, as long as I'm buying IP food. Wow. I originally investigated and learned about IP in VA and they wanted more than 4x that amount. I had thought those fees were the same everywhere.

So now I am waffling....should I go get the coach to help me loose faster, or at the other extreme go on alternative. Heard the Quest bars are "dangerous" so I want to stay away from them.

Anyway, yesterday I just started to feel thinner, like the weight fell off the night before. Such a great feeling....I'm on my way.

Happy Tuesday!

I have been down in the dumps for about 4 days now. I've had this sour stomach that doesn't seem to go away. I feel like just eating a ton to see if the feeling will ease up but I don't I just carry on. Would it be the diet that is causing this? I may break down and go to the doctor to find out what is going on.

How is everyone doing? Staying warm, I hope. My sister texted me this morning, they have a snow day. I told her it must be nice but then again, I wouldn't trade my Florida winter in for any snow days.

Have a great day!

Is it possible you have a stomach bug of some kind? There are so many different things going around right now. The other possibility is that you are reacting to the soy or something in the IP packets. But yes, if it continues, I'd get it checked out.

Good morning everyone! Today is WI day, crossing my fingers and toes to see some of the Mexico weight come off - I need to get back into the running for the Biggest Loser challenge at work

I have to tell you all about 2 great meals I've had recently: last night for supper, I made a stir fry with some cut up steak and IdealProteinNewbie's teriyaki sauce (soya, WF pancake syrup, garlic, ginger, seasoning salt) and had it with roasted broccoli - yum, yum, yum! Then, yesterday I realized I had counted wrong and didn't have a packet for breakfast this morning so while at the store last night re-stocking the veggies, I picked up a container of "omelet veggies" - cut up mushrooms, zucchini, peppers and red onions (didn't use the last one) and made up an omelet with egg whites and 1 cup of those veggies - another yum, yum, yum! Very happy with those.

When I went to WI last week, my coach told me that my original coach is coming back from mat leave in March, only working 2 days a week and asked if I wanted to go back to seeing her. I had to think for a bit but I'm happy with my current coach - she seems to be more "open" to new ideas and more encouraging and to be honest, I've seen her longer than I had seen the other one. I hope my original coach doesn't take it personally. Besides, my current coach changes her hair colour pretty much weekly and I kind of like that creativity

Have a great day!
Jo

Sweet, new panties is a big victory!

Nacygirl, I am thinking of placing a Nashua order. Are any of those restricted products?

Question about Quest bars. Why are they considered dangerous? Do they stall weightloss? I have been eating them for 4 years and helped with my weightloss as a meal replacement. I never crave them or want to go back for seconds. Should I be avoiding them?

I woke up retaining fluids like crazy. I got in my fluids yesterday. my rings won't go on. My scale is up a pound. Is this normal for some people?

Steppy, I'm sorry you're feeling down in the dumps. Good job hanging in there.

This is a great list, very descriptive. I want to save it somewhere for if/when I decide to go with alternatives. Can you tell me what the cost for a box is and how many you get? I'm good with the IP way for now, but just thinking ahead if I want to make a switch or maybe add in some of these and reduce how many IP ones I get. Thanks for sharing.

So yesterday I had planed on eating one of my pure protein bars at work for my snack, well found out I had left it on my counter at home. I ran to the closest gas station and they had an Adkins bar that was pretty close to op just a little over calories, which I made up for by not eating beef last night. But oh my my my with in minutes.... so gassy. It was aquard to say the least. Today I packed 2 of my bars one for my actual snack and one to keep in my drawer for days like yesterday. Never again Adkins bar never again.
