Good. It still doesn't hurt to make sure everyone knows this could result in an issue, since the topic came up.

Happy Mardi Gras! I hope everyone is having a good week so far. Formal observation was this morning, and IMO, it went well. I should have a meeting with my principal in the next few days to get some feedback.

Congrats on all the losses!

Home today with sick husband - he caught what I have had for the past two weeks but I can assure you I did not WHINE like he does when sick. Oh, give me patience!
Oops - forgot, I am still working on learning how to have that!
Schenectady, i love it when hubby cooks big batches, although I am pretty over soup at this point. Last week, he made a huge batch of stuffed peppers, and we ate on them all week. This weekend, he made a ten pound roast beef and two roasted chickens, so we are SET on protein for a while!

Brought all my drinks and bars, with me. There's a veggie restaurant down the way that I'll grab a salad from for lunch. Love this place. The chef is a friend and pretty much let's me have run of his kitchen when I'm around.

Stay warm!
Sounds like a great day! Enjoy!

AWESOME! Thanks!

Great news to report: deposited 4 lbs today at my weigh in. Stuck to IP 100% and did my 15 minutes of walking on the treadmill daily and I lost 4lbs. Got some of the new unrestricted crisps today- BBQ and Salt and vinegar. I got the last two bags of each so I hope my clinic can reorder and keep them coming, all the IP members want them.

I knew you were. I would never charge for anything like this. It's not like it's professionally done. Just an easy reference to have in a different place than the board. I'm doing my best to credit who posted things, but can't even guarantee it will have that. That being said, if anyone does not want me copying their recipes into the document (not calling it a cookbook...since really, it's just a place I've copied and pasted recipes and organized them by category). I kind of figured that once they are posted on a public forum like this, they're pretty much fair game to use. But, I will totally respect if someone doesn't want theirs used for any reason.

What do you think would do more damage, cheating on IP, or eating more protein and veggies. I currently on my TOM and I have been eating more protein and veggies, because I'm craving sweets, like crazy! I think I did the right thing?!?! But now I'm worried about my weigh in on Saturday.

I figured eating more allowed food is better than cheating. Right?

I think I just need reassurance on this. lol

Well... Actually eating more protein and veggies IS cheating (hard to believe eating veggies is cheating!). Eating other items (carbs) could put you out of ketosis (fat burning mode) but extra meat is extra calories and fat and extra veg is extra calories/fat. Extra anything can affect losses.

That being said, a couple scrambled egg whites or a hard boiled egg can help on occasion. Hot tea with a touch of allowed sweetener could help with the cravings. Are you having one restricted to help with that as part of your packets? Though some actually find that increases cravings and they try to stay away from any sweet products.

Hang in there... More suggestions will be forthcoming on here to help you get through and keep you 100%!!

I have my restricted for breakfast. My cravings tend to happen during dinner time. But your right on the extra calories, is sorta cheating.

That's wonderful, keep up the great work!

Eh, I definitely have my days where I eat more veggies or slightly more protein than the plan calls for. Sometimes this is entirely by accident; other times it's on purpose if I feel like I'll 'go rogue' if I don't eat a little bit extra. (This is mainly why I don't consider myself a 100%er).

I would of course try to avoid it as much as you can, but no sense beating yourself up about it. TOM can be a huge challenge. I could eat like a linebacker and still be hungry!

gnalosit: i tend to go off plan, and the only thing i notice is that i don't lose as fast as i did before, but the losses are still there.
i'm losing about 2 pounds a week, and i'm more than ok with that
keep up the good work, and you'll be fine!

Jendilly - great idea, would totally appreciate a copy.

I'm lucky that I live only 5 mins drive from work so I dashed home at about 7pm and made a stir-fry before heading back to work!
Way yo go Rosieposie

Well, after the first day of snowboarding I made the conscious decision to go off plan because I did not have the energy to keep up with my family on the mountain. I'm sure it wasn't all IP, but also the altitude, travel, not much sleep, etc. Although I did feel much better the next day after eating a bit of carbs that night. I told myself that I would try to stay low carb but that soon went by the wayside as well. So today I am back at it, up 4.6 lbs after 5 days off plan. Hopefully I can lose a bit of that before my WI on Saturday.

So my question is, has anyone survived a few days off plan? How did it effect your weight loss? I am back OP today and hoping that this one week doesn't throw me off too much.
Gaolsit- I made a decision to go off plan for one day over Christmas and it lasted for 6 and I'd gained 7 lbs! Set my clinic record for the most weight put on between weigh-ins. Everyday that week I would try to get back OP but would go off in the evening. It took me two weeks, $$ wasted to get it off and more importantly told me that I still had to figure out my cravings and when to STOP!
Good for you for getting right back OP.

Great loses this week. I am hoping to reach 100lbs lose from my highest this week. Last week I was 2.5 away.

Headed on a 9 hour car trip tomorrow with my doggie. I'm going to be gone 10 days. I'm driving to meet my daughter to help her pick out a wedding dress. :-) I've packed my scale, IP products, magic bullet and my cooking stone for roasting veggies. I'm really hoping that I can stay on plan with all the "upset" to my routine.

Reading today's posts about going off plan will certainly be inspirational. I may not lose much, but I certainly don't want to gain.
