Morning all. Still chugging along in phase 3 and havent't lost or gained which is great. Still have 6 days to go. I am loving the breaky again and looking forward to really diving into maintenance the right way. In the past, I did a phase 3 breaky, whatever I wanted for lunch, although it was not out of control by any means, and a veggie and protein for dinner. That being said, I did find myself picking up a piece of candy from the coworkers jar at work so I know that didn't really help.

Anyways, hope you are all well and enjoying your day.

But having my clothes fit differently as my body changes means so much more to me than ANY number on the scale or tape measure!

Speaking of clothes, any tips or strategies for dressing during the weight loss phase? I already know I'll be hitting thrift stores, but any other fashion ideas would be greatly appreciated! I work with young children, but I'm still expected to dress nicely (ie no jeans)
One thing that worked for me was sharing my journey with some co-workers and asking them if they were getting rid of any clothing. This worked well, and the clothing was right along with our dress code at work. This may help you out a bit, along with the thrift stores.

eandc: it is so nice to have those breakfasts! I have to say, I didn't stick with them in maintenance, I've just never been a breakfast person. I do still have my protein shake in the morning though, and it gives me the energy I need til lunch time. I at least followed P3 for the two full weeks to phase off, but boy was I stuffed in the morning. Congrats on reaching this point.

sunflwr: how exciting to know you will reach your goal by your wedding date! That is for sure one of the great things about IP; knowing you can hit your goal! A new puppy sounds fun, and also very challenging. I don't think I have the energy for a puppy. But they are so darn cute!

Well, I finally found a treadmill and after being in maintenance since the end of October I have started to exercise! I will admit I tried some dance exercises after buying a DVD that made it look so fun. Unfortunately, it was more comical than beneficial and I realized very quickly that I just am not cut out for Latin or Hip Hop dancing. lol. Perhaps there should be a disclaimer that anyone 50 or older should not try this at home. So, I have walked 2 miles each day for the last few days, and at a pretty good pace, if I do say so myself. I am hoping this helps firm up some of the flabbiness after dropping the weight. I don't expect to ever wear a bikini, but would like to feel more comfortable in my swimsuit this summer.

TurtleMom - for the past 8 years I hovered around 160 lb mark. Therefore, most of my clothes, including my bathing suits, is in that range. In the past 3 years, I have struggled with another 15 lbs, constantly going up and down, to recently go up 27lb from what became my norm of 160lbs. I have a lot of clothes that I am starting to fit in right now.

Sunflwr - congratulations on you weight loss! Wedding planning time, although stressful, was one of the most enjoyable times that I ever had. I enjoyed every moment of it (and then I had my son and staying home with a perfect baby for 1 year became my most enjoyable time of my life to date.

I didn't have this problem. I was such a yo yo dieter that I had a range of sizes in my closet I have finally tossed all the larger clothing because I don't plan on wearing larger sizes again!

Happy Friday! My mind feels less cluttered since starting IP. Don't know if that makes sense. I'm feeling good going into my first weekend. Can't wait for weigh in on Monday.

OMG I just started making cauliflower rice this week as well. Wondering why I waited so long!! It was amazing. My DH asked if could have it every night. LOL

dont let a little bump in the road get you down. It happens and the important thing is to move past this. I know its hard especially when we can be hard on ourselves to do good or eat good.

Thanks. I know I won't do anything stupid like that, but it's what I used to do. I haven't really felt this way since starting IP so it really startled me to have that thought.
