Thanks, 2Chi! I am Still got a way to go, but its nice knowing that I've got a handle on this. If you told me 5 months ago that I'd be this far along by now, I'm not sure I would have believed it.

Hola everyone, just checking in to see how things are going with y'all (yes, I'm from Texas lol).

First off, CONGRATS JOE! What an amazing milestone to hit!


I'm been absent lately - had a semi-severe case of food poisoning from a restaurant (I'm assuming my grilled mahi mahi was not grilled so well....)

I stepped on the scale and surprisingly I had gained back the weight I lost during prep! ! But then again, I could only keep down a small amount of water and chicken broth, so maybe a little bit is water weight.

I've upped my water to the full 80 oz today now that I'm not as scared of getting nauseous or sick to my stomach. I'm still very scared to eat any 'real food' so I'm sipping down 1 atkin's protein shake a day along with my water. My mind says "EAT FOOD" but my stomach says "Whoaaaa, not so fast there."

Quick question: I know protein shakes aren't on the approved list of foods, but I'm not sure why. The atkin's one I'm drinking is low cal, very low sodium, and only 1g carb. Any ideas? I would really like to work this into my plan as my daily "8 oz of skim milk" because it really keeps me full and comes in yummy flavors .

I am officially a size 8...one size smaller than I was in high school. Yippee!!

To celebrate, I thought I'd share an on plan recipe that I make at least once a week.

Grilled Veggies

1 small eggplant cut up (with or without peel)
1 container button mushrooms (cleaned)
1 container grape tomatoes (halved)
1 yellow squash (sliced)
1 zucchini squash (sliced)
1 half head cauliflower (broken up)
Quick Weight Loss olive oil spray
Basil to taste
Oregano to taste
Garlic to taste
Red Pepper Flakes (optional-to taste)

Mix all the veggies in large bowl. Spray liberally with olive oil spray, add spices and garlic, toss to coat. Place in large baking dish in as close to a single layer as possible. Arrange eggplant on top to crisp. Place in hot oven (450 degrees)-convection works best, but a regular oven will work well too. The time it takes to bake depends on the thinness of the veggies. You'll want to see the veggie edges crisp, but not burn. Check every 5-10 minutes until done.

The spices listed above gives the veggies an Italian twist. Curry or fajita spices will give the dish a different flare. Use only spices that do not contain salt. Salt at the table with Mortons Light Salt.

Feeds several...makes great leftovers.

I did the QWL program back in 2007 before getting pregnant with my youngest. I started weighing 215 and dropped 29 lbs. But i ended up having to be hospitalized because I started having the begining of a stomach ulcer. I think it was all of the citrus involved in my plan. Just becareful But yes it def works. You see results fast. Im thinking os starting again, only doing my own moderated version of it.

After the stress and fallout last week of work I am now back on track. I hate that I lost almost a week on the plan due to all of this. However, I did not gain anything. I just did not eat right.

I leave for Paris on April 5 and hope to be several sizes smaller than I am now. I have 9 weeks, I can drop a lot in 9 weeks.

This sounds delish! I'm gonna try it tonight.

The grilled veggies were awesome BrownEyedVeggie! I made those along with grilled lemon pepper shrimp on the George Foreman last night.

I wanted to ask you all about one product I came across (and used last night) called shirataki noodles. According to the package, they're virtually free of calories, carbs, and sodium. I made them last night, tossed them with a teeny tiny bit of olive oil, Ms Dash, and pepper and threw my grilled shrimp in there to make sort of a seafood pasta and they were pretty good. Has anyone else tried these? Or have any recommendations for those with pasta withdrawals?

Also tried the Swiss Miss/coffee combo that Joe recommended this morning at work and it was awesome!

WOW!!! All the tips and tricks sound GREAT!!! I just came back today and did the QWLC diet about 4 years ago and lost a lost of weight. Well... I stepped on the scale this morning and made a decision FINALLY that I need to commit to this again. I am in need of the approved food list... anyone out there have that????? I am well aware of the 3 day "de-tox" plan and this time I am going to try and do without the QWL supplements. Everyone on this forum sound so great and I am hoping using this keeps me motivated.

Thanks!!!!

Default Sodium solution in poultry products

Hi all,

Weird question for those of you who eat chicken or turkey on the QWLC plan: At the grocery store, do you choose the regular frozen chicken, the fresh chicken with the sodium solution, or the "no additives" chicken?

In the past, I've eaten the normal, cheap, solution-filled poultry and got immediate flack from the counselors at QWLC. Now, I'm getting the no additives chicken that is free from all the saltwater solutions, but it is quite a bit more than the regular.

Has anyone noticed that their weight loss is stunted if they just got for the regular stuff instead of the no additives?

Let's talk about WATER. I'm not sure I can do so much! Input, please, about whether the water was the key to success OR failure!

I get about 80oz a day. At first it was hard, now my body begs for it. I feel dried out when I don't reach the high levels of intake.

As far as it being key to success, I am not sure. Maybe it has been but this past week I have dropped NOTHING..... but did drink the water. However, I did not get the food in.
