Thank you. Going to try that recipe tonight!!!
No clue what a whoopie pan is LOL I'll stop by BBB today. I need non restricted treats. I can't get the IP brownies;( I over eat them!! Those and the wafers. I bake about 4 dozen muffins a week. They really help me stay on target. I make them with the wild berry yogurt and oatmeal for 1/2 restricted and with the crispy cereal for non restricted. I make them for a friend even though she's on maintenance she still eats them
With all you have written sounds like I need to make a trip to trader joes for sure now!!!! Yes it does take us all supporting each other. Last month my friend and I got together with some folks from PA who are also on IP and we all shared a recipe. I got an awesome potato salad made with cauliflower out of it that I love!!! And a soup recipe I wanna try!! We are suppose to get together again.
It's harder now for me because the friend I was doing this with is in maintenance. So we are eating differently. She hates being in maintenance without me also and finds it hard to eat healthy and on target. She does more the yo yo thing. Doing Phase 1 a couple days a week. I have another 20 lbs or so depending. I haven't really decided.
I agree support is always the most important ingredient to success!!
Ps. The cheese is "Go Veggie" brand. It is a soy based product. I've been using it from the start in August. When I asked my coach she said as long as I have weight loss success it was fine and that some of her other IPers had used it without issue. I'm looking at this as a life change so I do not adhere to every single directive
I did from August through October and lost 3 to 4 ever week!!
but then ended up in the hospital with a bowel obstruction(((((NOT CAUSED BY IP)))) old scar tissue from 2002, as I got smaller it moved around. That's why when I went back on in January I decided to eat more so I only lose 2 lbs a week. This is my minds way of rationalizing it and not being scared to be on the diet lol. I've lost 12 lbs in 2 months a lot slower then I'd like but smarter I think
Thank you for sharing with me !!!!! Really enjoying the conversation!!!
