Good morning all!

Yesterday was HARD! We had two family events, both involving restaurants. Thankfully, I knew where we would be eating, so I could plan ahead. Even though I tried to split up my meat between the two meals, I went over by a few ounces for the day. I brought my own salt, and used oil & vinegar on my salad. I brought my supplements in my purse, and drank more than 120 oz water. No wine, and no dessert. Not going to beat myself up over a few spare ounces of chicken. At least I stayed away from the dessert bar!

Although, since yesterday I have been craving key lime pie like crazy... Anyone know of a flavoring or syrup that might fill my need? Something that I could add to a drink packet?

I think I saw a recipe for key lime pie in one of the recipe threads.

And hooray for you for navigating family events! Once you get a handle on it and do it a few times, it gets easier and easier.

I add a couple packets of True Lime to the Vanilla Pudding to get that Key Lime flavor. There is a recipe around using Crispy cereal as a crust for mini key lime tarts.

True Lime! Of course. Forgot all about it, and I think I have some in the pantry. Thanks!

Mainemum- sounds like a great NSV to me. Those family events are very challenging, great planning ahead.

Amber- hope your weigh in goes well, you have been working so hard

Happy Monday everyone! It is lovely here, finally feels like Spring has arrived. I went to that wedding on Saturday and had many compliments on my dress and was 90% successful with the food. The better news was getting right back on track Sunday.
Have a great day

My weigh in is typically today but my coach has moved me to Tuesday mornings. I liked getting it over on Mondays but oh well!

Good Morning

I feel like its be quite awhile since I posted... Wanted to wish you all a wonderful week I cant tell you enough how much inspiration I get from the group when im on here! Yesterday was a busy day for me made a huge turkey dinner for my family and I also made a two tier Mickey mouse cake for my sons 3rd birthday which is Tuesday but we celebrated yesterday... for the first time ever I actually forgot to eat until I started feeling sick and realized I had been so busy that's why! So I gobbled up my breakfast and lunch together....I gotta say I knock on wood have not been hungry at all with this plan! I am trying 3 IP foods instead of 4 this week and so far so good My family is a huge support but its great to have support from this group as we are all on the same journey <3

I just got back from having my picture taken to be put in the newspaper and I'm dreading it coming out! I'm going back to school for my masters in social work and was awarded a scholarship from a local sorority. I'm happy to have the $500 but not for the newspaper on Thursday.
