Good luck! I know it might be hard for the first couple days...but strangley enough I found going back to school made sticking to my plan easier! I just don't go into the teachers lounge.

At any rate, I sure wasn't paying attention to those rules since I didn't know about them.

All to say - you do what you can. Maybe you can have an HNS at 6, eat your breakfast at 7:30. Mid-morning HNS, or an HNS with lunch at 12:30. Mid-afternoon HNS. Dessert HNS at night (I assume that's what you meant.) That's assuming you want to do 4 a day.
That sounds good. I will go in tomorrow nd WI and talk with a counselor about it too. Thanks for the advice!

Default Vitamins

The subject of multi-vitamins & whether they dissolve or not came up recently. I got a wild hair this week while I was putting together my vitamins & herbs - I put one of my multi capsules in a little water. Within a couple of minutes it was starting to dissolve. So it passed the test.
I use the "Your Life" One Daily Dieter's Support Formula.

Default Beige Sheet

I am on the beige sheet and I was wondering if anybody else on this plan has trouble eating all the protein..6 ounces is a lot of chicken...I am getting board with my choices, I have been on the program for about 3 weeks and am sick of toast, cheese, egg for breakfast, salad with 6 ounces of chicken, 6 ounces of turkey with cooked veggies for supper.. Any ideas for menus combos would be great..Thanks so much, Deborah

Have you tried any of the recipes in the cookbook? There is also a thread at the top of the MRC page called "recipes". There are so many ideas in there that I never thought of before and really they are quite easy to make.

Not sure I will be able to check in anymore before my early morning flight, so I wish you all luck in the NSV's and the scale WI's this week. I'll be tooling through the mountains and trying my best to eat healthy on the road.

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!!
I love the comments about clothing! I went shopping with my skinny teenage daughter and as I grabbed a bunch of size10 skirts she laughed at me and said you can't wear those little mommy!! She grabbed an eight and we ended up asking the sales girl for a SIX!! My goal was to get into a ten I can't ever remember being a six ever!! I only have a few more pounds to go, which they say will happen with stabilization (I get to start on Wed!!). I am amazed by this program!! For those of you starting off- CONGRATS in advance!! You're going to be amazed at the results!!

GMA to 4 I did feel good when I saw the motivation for the program...kinda gave me another spark!

Teachers I looked back through the threads pertaining to eating between our breaks and what to have for lunches! Great ideas...and good to read right before I start back tomorrow! The hours seem to be REALLY important between meals and drinks for me...must be all that fat burning!...or low blood sugar...either way....it sure helps hearing it from all of you...being able to "read" the advice, seems to stick better!
