I had a couple of great NSV's yesterday!! We had a pool heater installed and finally had the family over for a swim (it's been too cool up here in Ontario for the water to warm up). So this was the first time I've worn my new swimsuit. My daughter says Wow mom, I didn't realize how much you've lost, it's hard to notice when your clothes are loose and baggy, you look amazing! And my husband called me skinny!!!!!! He has not commented on how I look yet so this was a great moment!! Made me feel so good!!

I haven't made IP pancakes for awhile so it was a real treat for me today to have those with the blueberry syrup I found -- not sure I love it as much as I hoped. Next time I put the syrup right in the pancakes to see what that is like. Poor DH is just having boring breakfast for Father's Day, but MINE is pretty darn yummy!
Happy Father's day today to dad's everywhere, and love and memories to those no longer with us.

Good Morning everyone and Happy Father's Day and wishing you all a beautiful Sunday!

I am starting IP tomorrow (6/16) for the first time ever and I am very excited! I will be using alternatives and just the basic products for a short while until we get settled. I just made a cross country move earlier this week - from northeast to southwest US and decided this is a perfect time to get started!

Look forward to chatting with you all!

Have a great day.

House update: we're in a 'bidding war'. I knew it was a "too good to be true" house. Apparently 3 other people think so too. We've put in a counter offer and now we need fingers, toes AND eyes crossed...stress is mounting. Here are selfies of me today 3FC style -- tired, confused, and kind of freaking out inside>>

The rutabaga was very hard to cut but the fries were yummy and so worth it.

I came home with about 20 new bras last night! It was a good day all around.

Praying for you!!! don't stress, God's got this!! He knows the desires of your heart and if it's meant to be it will be, I'm believing with you!!! On a side note- if it doesn't work out- then you have to believe there's a reason and that He has a better plan for you.... But right now we are believing you'll get it!!!!!

Heading to the in-laws today. Land of all carbs, no veggies, and fried foods. Combatting with a eggs and a big green salad with healthy veggies for breakfast so I go not hungry and can be really picky.

Hi Kelly -- I just bumped up the recipe thread and added the pizza crust that was made with the cereal or potato pack. That's probably a good one to start with.
