Good Monday morning! I just had my protein shake and am ready for an OP day!
Hope everyone had a great weekend. We were busy but I was able to still stay OP - although it does stink eating a plain salad with the family at a pizza place
I'll try to avoid that happening again. It felt empowering after at least!
Here's to willpower!

KDmom2: I feel for you. Eating cucumbers at a professional football game when surrounded by hotdogs, chicken fingers, fries, and beer is a test to willpower too. Congratulations for staying OP!

Like the PP's there were lots of temptations to overcome this weekend. But I got through them all and feel much better for it.

I started reading the Beck Diet Solution this weekend, and a couple of the ideas are really resonating with me. I particularly like the idea of strengthening my resistance muscle. I know that I DO feel better after I've resisted temptation -- and it gets easier every time.

There have been a couple of instances in the book where I thought she doesn't really get how I personally think as an overweight person, but I'm definitely getting some good ideas from the book.

I forgot to tell you guys: The day after I posted on here about the cookies, my husband threw them away. I never had even a bite of them. VICTORY!

He just made some more cookies a couple of days ago but they are double chocolate. Not even a blip on my radar screen. I'm not a chocolate fan. My son had a few and my husband had quite a few (judging by how many are left) but I assume those will get tossed too eventually. Unless he finishes them off tonight.

I wish he would stop making junk food for my son's sake though. :/

I had my WI today and I am barreling towards 60 pounds lost. 70 pounds lost will be my halfway point. I am focused and driven to succeed on this diet!

Congratulations to everyone that successfully strengthened their resistance muscle this weekend! It isn't easy but it sure is worth it in the end!

haha, I'd REALLY like to just throw them straight from the cookie sheet into his face. But that is more of that resistance muscle that I am strengthening. It helps with more than just food! lol

After a crazy week of eating out, late or mistimed meals, and just plain fun and craziness, I am proud to say I stayed on track the best I possible could, and managed to lose..... 3.6 pounds!!!!!

This is a total of 20.5 pounds on Ideal Protein in four weeks! I am now exactly half way to my first goal (including all losses over the last year)!

I am going to start adding in some light exercise this week, and we will see how that effects my losses. I am so happy I found this!

What a wonderful weekend for the resistance! Well done all of you who didn't cave in.

Beautifully sunny day here, makes the spirits lift in the sunshine. The smell of the vanilla cookies is invading the house. Poor DH couldn't resist eating more than his portion, so he'll be light on his snack this evening.

Trying out lots of recipes for the packets and have enjoyed them all so far. Thanks to everyone who has contributed and shared, they make a BIG difference to the variety level in P1.

A week on the enzymes and the indigestion, gas and "potty issues" have resolved. They have improved my ability to eat broccoli more often.

Hope everyone's fired up for a great week. We've got this, let's lose some weight!

I think it was mentioned before that some phased off quickly and got back on to beat a stall in losses. For those who did, how fast was the phase out and back? How many days of P2, P3 before P1 again?

Happy Monday Everyone! I got through my closet this weekend and am donating a good bit of clothes. If they were nicer clothes, I would offer them for a clothing swap, but I didn't really have anything.

I'm still so happy about my WI last Friday. Hitting the 40 lb lost mark in less than 4 months. It really makes a difference if you stick 100% OP. It felt like it would be forever for my ticker to hit the halfway mark and now I'm in my last 20 lbs to lose!!! I'm hoping this week I break into the 140s since getting into the 150s was so difficult for me.

I'm going to walk in the park a couple nights this week because I really think my good losses the last two weeks were as good as they were because I traveled and went to two football games and walked over 15K steps and SWEATED.

Happy Monday!

I can relate to the weekend food temptations - we had a Cub Scout meeting Friday with TONS of snacks and treats....I munched on my bar. Kids had tacos on Saturday with all the fixins....I ate a taco salad. Kids asked me for homemade banana bread on Sunday. Made a loaf WITHOUT LICKING THE BOWL. I pulled out a pair of sequined size 8 pants and reminded myself that no food, no B/L/T was worth NOT getting back into those jeans and all the other clothes I am too big for right now!

I made a big batch of P1 friendly veggie soup - for 3 servings I use 1 can of No Added Salt diced tomato (about 1.5 cups of veggie), then 4.5 cups of whatever Phase 1 veggies I want to toss in. This week I used 1 cup turnips, 2.5 cups chopped zucchini, and 1 cup chopped mushrooms. 3 cups of College Inn FF/Low Sodium broth, some basil, paprika, salt and turmeric and simmer till it's done! I portion it out as soon as it cools - first divide the veggies into 3 containers (it ended up being about 1 and 1/3 cup cooked veggies each) and then divide the liquid (it worked out to about 1 cup broth each). It's a little extra work, but now I have perfectly portioned soup!
