It is soooo hard to eat out every meal of the day (other than breakfast). I took my IP packets and WF dressings with me. I'd say I kept 85-90% OP while there, it's the cheats that killed me I'm sure. It was my daughter's birthday while there, so yes I did have a couple of bites of her desserts. Also, I was hanging out with family and had a few drinks out two different nights. For the most part, I stuck to the plan. All of my meals were IP compliant. Getting all the veggies in is hard when eating out, but I did eat at least one salad a day. That was easy to do in the college cafeterias with their salad bars.

So...I'm about to go WI. It's been two weeks. Was hoping for a loss, but at this point, I'll be greatful if I maintained. We walked A LOT...I hit over 10,000 steps 6 of the 8 days while gone, including tons of stairs. Those college tours are awesome for that.

Back to plan...working hard to my goal. It's hard to have some cheats and then get back to plan. However, I did shop for smaller clothes before going and was able to get into sizes that I haven't seen in a very long time. I cried in the dressing room...happy tears!! Hoping they're all too big soon though.

Anyway...hope everyone had a great couple of weeks!
Good to hear everything went well for your daughter... you will probably do fine on your weigh in!
Just remember when you are in a restaurant to ask for veggies steamed or even lightly stirfried with no carrots as a side. EVERY sit-down restaurant has vegetables on hand and it's very easy to cook a bit up for you. I've never had a problem at any restaurant - no one blinks twice and you aren't asking for some freaky difficult to prepare dish, so no big deal
You can always get shrimp or chicken breast as long as it is grilled or baked without coatings, and even steak or pork tenderloin if you got extra cash lol.
Don't forget to tip well since they are doing a request instead of the 'usual.'

You may not have lost much in pounds but I bet you are reshaping your body inches with all the walking that you did. You will be losing the fat and replacing it with muscle which is denser (takes up less room per lb than fat).
Happy tears for you too!

Liana

Someone posted awhile back that a Chipotle salad bowl with steak was ok to eat. I haven't been brave enough to eat at a restaurant yet but it sure sounds good. The chicken at Chipotle has honey in it and the carnitas is too high in fat. Maybe check this website out and play around with what can be ordered while on IP. http://www.chipotle.com/en-US/menu/n...alculator.aspx

Planning a trip to Disneyland in June. I think this may be the ultimate test of willpower.... We have an annual passport so I guess I can tell myself that when we go back in the Fall that I can treat myself to a tasty treat in the shape of Mickey if I'm good in June...

my old coach said that in a bind its ok to grab the Wendy's Santa Fe salad i think its called? Just no dressing, cheese, gaucamole etc.. just get the chili and get a sour cream for a dressing. I would have it every now and then and it wouldnt stall my progress.

Default Salad Dressings

I have been looking for an all purpose salad dressing to replace the WF products. I've spent time looking through all the recipe stickies and most of what I am seeing contains things that are not allowed in Phase 1, like sesame oil, chili oil, lime juice, poppy seeds. Does anyone have a homemade version that is Phase one compliant? Also, if you are using a 3:1 or 2:1 oil to vinegar ratio, then how do you determine how much a serving is?

Hi catlady...I like the dressing I make for phase 1 very much. I only make it one serving at a time. I use 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil, and then I add about 3 tbsps of apple cider vinegar. I do a few squirts of lemon juice, some garlic powder, ip salt, and pepper. Sometimes I add parsley or greek seasoning. Other than the oil and salt, I don't really measure how much I add, I just do it to taste. Good luck!

Glad it's getting better for you! I had a pretty brutal first 6 days. But after that it was all so much better.

Thanks so much. I'll give that a try. I haven't bought bottled dressings in over 20 years. I always make my own. My go to dressing before IP was 3:1 Evoo and Balsamic with garlic and herbs or a killer honey mustard recipe. I guess I am just going to have to play with it until I find something that I like. The WF are ok when first starting but basically they are too sweet and full of things I can't pronounce!

Default Coffee & decaf

I know I'm only supposed to have one cup of coffee a day. But what about decaf?
