In regards to hunger, it comes and goes for me. I chug lots and lots of tea. Sometimes I throw in a pickle or two.

Does anyone use a fitness monitor like fitbit? looking at purchasing one to motivate/track what I do on a daily basis. What's cool about the fitbit zip is that it syncs with MFP.
I have been considering getting one, mostly because I'm curious to see how many calories I burn at work, but wish it didn't have to be worn on my wrist.

SUNFLOWER - you got the job - GREAT news!
I made my weekly donation on the scale this morning 1.7lbs. Had some hiccups this week with a children's birthday party, but have learned from it and plan to plan better ahead and prepare for the temptations. Staying OP works best, I feel the best, my gut feels better. Boy can you tell the difference, with the cake I ate it just put me to sleep - no energy. Why do we loss control and put this type of food in our bodies, when the fresh and eating healthy actually makes us feel and preform better. It is the taste of the carb and sugars that give you an instant high.

I'm just about one month in myself and I found I've been very hungry for the last week or so... I've been craving carbs like crazy as well...

BTW: Congrats on the job offer!

Unless I should add an entire egg instead of just the white? Anyone have experience in the oatmeal muffin department?

I'm going to explore the recipe thread for something that may work.
I've tried them with & without zucchini. The zucchini really helps it be more "breadlike" and adds moisture. I don't even drain my zucchini anymore.

IP is low carb, low fat, moderate protein, but also an alkalkine diet. Each item is on the list for its own reason. Part of me wonders if green beans are occasional to FORCE us to try other veggies. No matter, the more I follow the rules & not try to outsmart them, the better off I am.

You don't have to wear it on your wrist! They have one called the ZIP. http://www.fitbit.com/zip

You can stick on your bra, in your pocket or kind of tuck it behind your belt. I'm really intrigued by this little thing. I wanted to try out the app before I purchased the fitbit but my phone won't let me download anything right now..it's acting weird.

Day 1 here. I did all my prep for the week last night. I separated and bagged everything by day. I just know I'm going to be successful on this plan. Have a great OP day.

I agree-they do keep the moisture. I was looking for something for breakfast tho-I like keeping my veggies for lunch and dinner. Maybe 1 cup at breakfast? I'll give it a shot!

sunflowr, I'm going to grab one at Wal Mart over lunch and check this thing out. I read a lot of reviews last night. I talked to a coworker about it this AM and she reminded me that weight watchers has one (around the same price) BUT you have to pay monthly fees. Just an FYI.

Sapphire, welcome! Great idea on pre-chopping. I do that as often as I can and am much more likely to stay motivated!

I use 1 c (cooked down to .5 c)
Then 1.5 veg at lunch and 1.5 veg at dinner or 2 c. lunch, 1 c. dinner with a big salad.

I got the FitBit Flex for Christmas and absolutely love it. It really motivates me to move more.

Funnily, my dad got my mom one for Christmas and she was a little offended. Now, she's just as obsessed with hers as I am with mine!
