Haha! This reminded me, I meant to post this morning...

I finally got the Beck Diet Solution (red book, not the green book) from my library and have been reading through one task each day. I'm curious if others who started reading it AFTER starting IP just read ahead or if you did it one step at a time like she recommends?

Also, step 2 is to pick a second diet as your back up. What did you think of that since you (presumably) had already found success with IP? I just thought about the phase 2 as my "second diet" as moving to that would be my back up in case of a stall. I know there are other options other than IP, but at this point spending time on that step seemed silly to me. Just wondering what others thought.

So, today is my first day of P2. After my early AM weigh-in, I started my day with 4 oz of scrambled eggs as I have a HARD time with eating a full 8 oz of protein in one sitting. I do think I will miss my extra IP/alt foods, but I know I can hold on for two weeks of P2 and THEN I really get to jazz things up in P3.

I have the rest of the week with extended family here....so I'm happy that I was still able to meet goal. My son's birthday is on Friday, but I have no intention of eating any cake. I want to phase back carbs properly....no reason to set myself back for a little cake!
Congrats-what a great victory!

Happy birthday! That was very nice of your husband and boys to send flowers. You are right, your health is the best gift you can give yourself.

thanks for the love ladies, I appreciate it.

Regarding alternative birthday cake choices, I did the chocolate cake in a mug for my husband and I in May for my birthday. Everyone else had either cake or cheesecake I made and we opted for our mug cakes that were on plan. They were delish and neither one of us felt deprived and were happy to NOT eat the cake. Nothing like beating yourself after the fact.

Evemomma- congrats! Awesome achievement!

Stopped at gnc today and got some quest bars to pack for my trip. So far have only tried the strawberry cheesecake one but I liked it. Bought a bunch of them so I can try flavors.

Default fell off BIG time

Hey all,

Went on vacation last week and fell off the wagon. BIG TIME. Had planned on stay 100% OP and failed miserably.

Now I am completely terrified to step on the scale to see the damage and having a hard time getting back into the groove.

Feeling really upset with myself.

eh...lala..seriously...don't beat yourself up. Get back on the wagon and revisit your eating plan for vacations in the future do you prevent it from happening.
I think so many times we beat ourselves up to the point of us thinking so many negative thoughts and we feel like we won't ever succeed.

Jump on that scale with your head up high and just move forward.

I worked through each exercise. They build on each other.
My 2nd diet is IPs maintenance plan. Since I was already experiencing success, I know this diet worked for me.

Default Plateau since last week?? Questions...

So I have been hovering between 181 and 182 since last Monday - I cannot seem to budge below 181. I have not really changed anything and I feel very tired these days - as in dragging and need a nap tired.

Any thoughts or been through something similar? I am in week 12 of alternative IP.

Thanks!

I was "stuck" at weeks ?? I don't remember lol but I had two weeks of slow losses, I didn't think I'd ever get out of the 230s, but then I had two good weeks. I really believe our bodies just need time to adjust. Well that and I changed things up a bit...I was having BBQ crisps and a wafer on most days, but for the past two weeks I've been treating the BBQ crisps like a restricted bad that seems to have helped- unless it's just a coincidence? I think I'm just carb sensitive. Keep on trucking!!!!!

welcome! that was one of my first questions lol. well, you will have to wait for twenty days and have to have made atleast 20 posts and then in your user cp you will see a new line that says edit signature. that is where you will be able to add the ticker. until then you will have to wait

I too cannot change my ticker in fact when I try, even if I start the process it wants me to create a TTC ticker (Trying to Conceive). LOL

I might check out another ticker site so I can update my weight. I'm finally in the 150's!! Less than 10lbs to reach my goal! Wahoo!

Omamma:
I'm going to order some white cheddar crisps, some of the proti-thin carmel delight bars, peanut strawberry bars by Proti-diet. I wish the Proti-Thin fusilla past was available, I would buy that as well.
Don't forget in addition to the free shipping, use the promo code AUG5OFF to save $5.00 off your order, limit one per customer.
congratulations!!!! almost there

pishposh, I got the Beck book a couple days ago (started IP 10 days back) and have been working through it one step at a time...mostly As you know, the first 14 days are designed as "prep" time, so far I've condensed one that I felt I had well in hand (eating sitting down) but by and large there seems to be a lot of value in taking the day to practice the skill (today was giving yourself credit for 'helpful food behaviors' for me). I definitely intend to take it one day at a time starting with Day 15.

As for the 2nd diet, she writes about the 2nd diet being a "backup plan" "in case the first choice doesn't work out." Even though IP is working for me, this felt like a good idea. In the past, I have given up, panicked or rebelled (all resulting in lost progress at best) in response to complications or monkey wrenches thrown into the eating plan I was trying to follow at the time. I plan to use IP P1 all the way to goal, but if something should happen, I want to be prepared with something other than a "screw-it binge"

Mostly the contingency I'm trying to take into account is my body not responding well to ketosis--Lisa has been so gracious sharing her experience with this (thank you!) So my "2nd diet" is basically a low-carb (but not enough to be in ketosis) maintenance plan. I also have a kind of 1-B plan...for how I'll do alternatives if/when using IP products/clinics becomes cost prohibitive.

Not sure if that's helpful, but I feel like having that "safety net" is good for me. If things head south, I know I am not going back to square one, to old eating habits/patterns...
