G' Morning Ipeeps! I hope this Monday finds you well and OP! If you have an HEB grocery store near you, check their coupons. The one near me has store coupons for $1 off Walden Farms products; no limit as far as I can tell. Guess where I'm going this morning! Going to stock up on my favorites, and maybe try something new, depending on what's available. My new favorite snack is raw jicama sticks dipped in WF caramel dip. Tried making my own "tortillas" using my meat slicer and it did pretty well, but a few came out too thick before I found that "happy spot" so I decided to try them with the dip. Good stuff, Maynard!

Have a great week!

Good morning and happy Monday everyone!
Celebrated my 33rd birthday on Friday and coasted through the weekend. Tried several new recipes (Holy cow Janeva's Strawberry Cheesecake Chocolate Chip Muffins and the Mint Chocolate Lava Loaf, my birthday "cake", are DELICIOUS!). Also tried on every pair of pants I own and have a shopping bag to take to the donation bin around the corner. Hoping for a solid 2 lb loss this week since last week was a mere 1 lb and the week prior was 1.8 lbs. Feeling kind of "ho hum" these past few weeks. I think a nice loss would be the lightning bolt I need.

Awesome! Thanks for the heads up! Need to stock up with vacation being 6 weeks away!!

Happy Monday everyone lol

The scale inched up a couple #'s this morning. Pretty sure it is fluid retention from lack of sleep and heat, so I am upping the water and plan to get my walks I this week.
Wish the work-blahs would go away. Most of what's going on is out of my hands but there are things I need to do and I am procrastinating 😕 had put an application in back at the beginning of May and just now received information that I am still a candidate- keep your fingers crossed for me iPeeps

happy Monday IP family.

ugh. these past several days have been a HUGE struggle for me. and I was only on IP for 4 weeks! Did great the 1st 3 weeks, with 2-3 lbs lost a week. then my period hit and the 4th week I only lost 0.6. I then went into a huge negative hole convincing myself that it wasn't because of my period that I didn't lose the weight, and that I am bound to always struggle with dieting and my weight. I got super sad and stressed out about it. my coaches kept encouraging me to keep at it and remember that logically it is VERY possible that the small weight loss/stall is due to my period. but did I listen? nope. then it came to the 4th of July and my mindset was "screw it" and went all out that day. not gonna lie, but it was really fun and I loved being able to socialize without having to worry about every single thing I put into my mouth. Thought I could handle the one cheat day and get back on track the very next day. annnnd that didn't work out either. now it's the 3rd day and im STILL cheating. omg. need to get it together!!! I'm so ashamed, I'm so disappointed in myself, and I'm horrified that all my hard work and money has gone to waste.

I tried searching for those recipes but came up short... willing to share? It sounds amazing! One month left to go OP (I'm done August 5 no matter where I fall, original goal was lose 100lbs, at -85.5lbs as of 7/1 but 8 months of plan is my mental limit, I think!) and I'm feeling so bored, so routine I need a "treat" to keep me sane! Something other than a different Torani in my shake, ha.

Eta: And happy birthday!

No problem GreenWithEnnui! And your stats are killer! Great work!!!

I found them on her facebook page "Janeva's Ideal Recipes Cookbook". I'll post the second one in another post so I don't annoy everyone... Ha!

Strawberry Cheesecake Chocolate Chip Muffins
This is a no fail recipe for light but moist muffins with a strawberry cream cheese flavor
Recipe by Janeva Eickhoff

Ingredients:
1 IP vanilla pudding mix
1 IP chocolate chip pancake mix
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. Splenda
1/3 C. liquid egg whites (I use Better ‘n Eggs brand, muffins will be more moist)
2 tsp. sugar free cream cheese extract (or 1 tsp. vanilla extract + 1 tsp. olive oil)
3 T. Walden Farms Strawberry Syrup

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. In a medium bowl, mix together the pudding mix, pancake mix, baking powder and Splenda. Mix well to distribute baking powder throughout.
3. Add liquid ingredients. Stir to mix.
4. Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray, spoon batter into muffin tin making 12 muffins.
5. Bake approximately 10 minutes. Oven temps vary, check muffins at 8 minutes. If they start to lightly brown on the top they’re definitely done.

TIP: If you use the regular sized muffin tin you will have to increase the baking time. Check muffins by sticking a toothpick into the center of a muffin and if it comes out clean w/no batter on it, muffins are done. I use the Better ‘n Egg brand liquid egg whites because they make the batter more moist, it’s gold in color but still just egg whites and doesn’t include the yolk. I purchased the sugar free cream cheese extract from www.olivenation.com

Servings: This recipe makes 2 IP unrestricted servings – 1 IP unrestricted serving = 6 mini muffins or 3 regular sized muffins.

For more recipes like this visit Janeva’s Ideal Recipe Cookbook – Phase 1 at Facebook or www.janevasidealrecipes.com for the cookbook coming spring 2015. A portion of the proceeds will support Samuel’s House Foundation, a non-profit charity helping disadvantaged children and those in need of a nice meal on their plate every day.

2nd Recipe Mentioned Above...

CHOCOLATE MINT LAVA LOAF
Recipe by Janeva Eickhoff

1 IP Dark Chocolate Pudding Mix (dry)
1 IP Crispy Cereal mix (crushed)
2 tsp. baking powder
1 packet Stevia
1/3 C. liquid egg whites
1 T. skim milk
2 tsp. olive oil
1 T. WF Chocolate Syrup
2 T. IP Vanilla premade drink
1 IP Chocolate mint bar (cubed)

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, mix the pudding, cereal, baking powder and Stevia. Add the egg whites, skim milk, olive oil, chocolate syrup and Vanilla premade; stir to incorporate.
3. Fold cubed chocolate mint bar into batter.
4. Spray mini loaf pan with cooking spray and add batter. Lightly pat down to even out.
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes clean

TIP: When you insert the toothpick you may see the melted chocolate bar on the toothpick – not to be confused with whether the remaining batter is baked through. Over baking makes these IP baked goods a little tough but under baking will cause deflating after it’s out of the oven. Eat up ~ janeva

Servings – 2 IP unrestricted and 1 IP restricted. This can be tricky to figure out in your day so I eat ˝ the loaf and that is 1 IP unrestricted and ˝ IP restricted. That leaves me 1 IP unrestricted and ˝ restricted packets for the rest of the day. I eat the other half of the loaf the next day – micro the bread for a few seconds to reheat and perk up.

Littlelulu: Don't beat yourself up. This is my classic downfall. I do really well and then I fall off the wagon. Then instead of getting up and brushing myself off, I roll around and the wagon drives over me a couple of times. IP works. These threads prove it, which is why they're a lifeline for me. No one in maintainers row says it's easy but they stuck to it and so can we. Get back on the wagon and brace yourself that the next week will be really hard. We're all here for you so don't quit.
I'm in my 12 week now. As of my last WI, I'm down a total of 36 lbs. I do lose less when it's my TOM, but the next week will drop. I'm ecstatic with the results so far.
I'm up at my cottage enjoying a 2nd week of vacation. I host a lot of people but now I'm not stressed whether there's enough food for me. Usually I'm so busy that I sometimes miss out on the sweets and the snacks. Now I don't care. I eat my IP meals at regular times and have no problem cooking and baking for everyone else. The best part is I no longer want to go bed right after dinner because I ate too much. I stay up and play cards and feel great. I'm sitting on my dock with a coffee with my two lab pups watching my hubby and kids in the boat tubing. I'm starting to enjoy life and stopped worrying about what I'm going to eat next. This is a great change for me. I still have about 50 lbs to lose but I don't care how long it will take. I'm going to get there.

lrg- that sounds like a great vacation! Enjoy all the benefits

Agreed - Janeva is AWESOME! I am a simple recipe kind of cook, and she has a great mix for iPeeps - including us alt-product users. That was where I found the rhubarb compote I follow her facebook page also.

lulu - dust off and get back on the horse! PMS is the Right now, it's literally one bite at a time. Remember how good you felt while you were losing - how much better your clothes were fitting, and all the positives! I would also think for now, when you want *insert non-IP food here*, have easy snacks on hand - celery sticks are a personal fave & "free"...another thought would be hard boiled eggs, just toss the yolk or make a quick egg white omelet - something to get you through the hungries and back into ketosis.

Hey everyone.

I have done IP before and after having kids I have started again 8 days ago.

I was wondering if any of you have any tips on accelerating the weight loss process? I know it sounds silly, but for some reason my scale hasn't budged in 3 days; in fact, I even have gained 2 pounds...and I have been on plan 100%. Weighing and measuring everything, getting in more than 12 glasses of water a day, etc... I have even cut out the restricted.

I have a vacation at the end of August and I want to lose about 25-30 pounds before then. My friend is on IP - weighed about 190 - and has lost 50 pounds in only 2 months.. Any tips on how I could increase my results like hers?

Thanks everyone. I am just feeling really disappointed and discouraged right now
