Default Farmers market

Happy Hump day!
A thought from Beck Diet Solution:

Sabotaging Thought: Life is too short so I’m just going to eat this even though I know I shouldn’t.

Response: Actually, life is too short to be spent overweight, unhappy, and unhealthy. If I want to feel great and really live my life the way I want to, then I need to do what I can to maintain a healthy weight
.

SophieLT & evemoma:
We all love Farmers Markets! I'll be at Schlafly BW today to pick up my CSA. My farmer lives on your side of the river, too! We should meet @ Soulard sometime. That's an approximate equal drive for all.

Question - when we try to aim for 40 net carbs per day, does that include fiber or do we subtract it? I find I am going over that number, but it is due to the starchy veggies like broccoli and cauliflower...

Question - when I am using testing for ketosis, usually the stick reads in the trace area. I am wondering if this is dilutional since I am drinking so much water, but I want to make certain I am not doing something wrong. I am staying 100% on plan but weight loss has stalled this week...

Net carbs are total minus fiber

Any veggie on our approved list is a NON-starchy veggie. Starchy ones are corn, peas, potatoes, etc. - the stuff disallowed on IP.

Well, unless something has changed since the first time I did IP, there is no set number of carbs we are to "aim for". That being said, all coaches seem to freelance the rules somewhat and yours may have given you a number. If we follow protocol, per the sheet, we are automatically within protocol guidelines without the added stressor of tracking carbs, fats, protein grams, etc. if this has changed, I hope someone else will chime in because I will also start keeping track.
As far as subtracting fiber, the answer is yes. Subtracting fiber from the carb count gives you "net carbs" which is a more accurate fuel measurement.
Hope this helped somewhat.

Morning fellow IPers

Thank you for the birthday wishes. It is raining here and I am looking forward to going back to bed after dropping the kids off and watching Orange is the New Black. Any one else love that series?
I feel like eating crispy pancake for lunch and breakfast, is that wrong?

Not seeing my coach today so did my own "official" weigh in (and the first time I've weighed since last Thursday). And you know what? I'm OFFICIALLY down 20 lbs!!!!!!!!!! So I'm still on track for losing about 2 lbs (give or take) a week, which is I think probably realistic with 15 more pounds to lose. But I am over half-way now.

I will not be weighing myself again until next Weds (will weigh the morning of my coach weigh-in at home). Glad I got my act together with the scale.

Now to keep plugging away! Have a great day, my friends!

Default Morning!

Good morning all! The birds are singing outside this morning which is a pleasant sound after the loud thunderstorms we had yesterday afternoon and evening!

Jenny, I haven't seen Orange is the New Black but I have several friends that love it too! If I cave and sign up for Netflix, it will be one of the first shows I watch from the beginning.

Today is going to be sort of neat, I have taken the traditional ritual for the blessing of a home (usually used when someone moves into a new place) and adapted it to use for the "blessing of the practice" for my chiropractors. It sounds sort of cheesy but it is really a neat thing. I will also bless their hands, as they are used for healing. I have done this with two dentist friends of mine as well and both were quite meaningful occasions. So I am looking forward to that this evening!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Grace Rev - what a wonderful idea! I will have to ask you to do a remote blessing when our house is built, but since we are not breaking ground til next week, there is no rush.

By then, I am determined to be in single digit sizes. I decided yesterday as I started in wearing size 12 on the bottoms and 10 on the tops, that since I have never achieved that since I was in high school, I am going for it. My entire family is bottom heavy so I do not know what the odds are, but I want something big for which to push.

I am only 20 away from goal weight wise, so I want something new that will be a real challenge. The size 8 on the top should be a breeze, nothing left there, but the back end will be the real achievement!

LOLing! Yes, as a fellow pear, I agree that the junk in my trunk is not shrinking NEARLY as much as the rest of me! BUT, I am really happy to see that I have a waist again (after 2 pregnancies!). I have learned that I can't compare sizes to slimness as my body fits clothes so differently to others.

And I can hear those old "not good enough" thoughts start creeping in my brain again, even after losing these 20 lbs. BUT...I am going to fight them. I didn't lose weight to look like a model. I am losing weight to get my life back under control, to get get healthy, to improve my mood, and to be the best me I can be. And that best me may still have a little jiggle in her wiggle. SO what??????

Losing my waist was the one thing about pregnancies (6) that made me sad. I had always loved that I could play up my smaller waist.

Now that I have lost so much weight, it is still relatively speaking the smallest part but there is a whole lot of wrinkle that was not there before children!

That being said, I would not trade my boys for anything. They are the joy and light in my life and I am just beginning to reap the rewards of having raised them well.
