Your husband is going to flip. You CAN see the difference with your weight loss. For goodness sake you have lost 26 lbs. You are 22% into your weight loss goal.
  • Made some meatballs with WF marinara sauce and melted cheddar soy cheese.

    Was pretty good =D
  • mmmm I just ordered the marinara sauce off their website!!
  • I am debating and researching...wondering if I should start IP.
    I am going to a couple meetings this week.

    Can you tell me the expense for one week what this would be?

  • Quote: Down 2 this week for me.

    that is awesome! Keep up the good fight!
  • Wondering what we are supposed to do when we get a cold or flu? The flu is running rampant in the workplace right now and my son has lovingly passed on his cold to me and my husband. Throat and sinuses are killing me but unsure what to take.......
    Any suggestions?
  • Quote: After reading through the recipes and reading the posts, I decided to try the Turnip Fries....full disclosure I have never thought i liked Turnips.
    OK, I was so wrong. It's worth a try if you are struggling with the veggies, doesn't feel like you are eating a vegetable at all and YUMMY! This from a former turnip hater!

    Thanks for the inspiration. We need to keep mixing up the veggie portion of this so we don't get bored and eat something else.
    HA! I have also become a turnip fan on this diet. And for some reason, it seems I often get my best daily loss the morning after my turnip consumption. All the more reason to love them!

    I am a firm believer in this program. I have struggled with weight gain and loss for over 20 years. After I turned 35, the weight has not wanted to budge - no matter what. Period. I was slated for weight loss surgery, but my chiropractor suggested I try this plan in the meantime.
    Since January 2, 2010, I have lost 27.5 lbs!!

    I believe that every clinic has a different initial fee they charge (some don't charge anything) but the food itself for one week costs approximately 81.00. Again, prices vary from clinic to clinic, however, I do not think they can go below this price - but they can charge more. The 81.00 covers 3 Ideal Protein packets a day for 7 days. Your coach may start you at 4 packets per day in the first week, so your costs would be extra to calculate the added IP packets.

    Hope this helps!

    Can anyone tell me how to find and attach the weight tracker that so many of the people on this site have that show the progression of their weight loss.

    Thanks
    Welcome to 3FC! In order to get a tracker, you need to have been a member for 20 days and have posted a minimum of 25 posts. Some people just write their stats on the bottom of the signature area until they can use a real tracker.

    I was so lucky that the day I started the diet I got a sinus infection. I took nyquil a few nights just to get some rest. I took some sudafed and tylenol during the day too. I just felt like I had to treat my illness to stand a chance at staying on the diet. It will be interesting to hear from the others on this.

    I hope you get over it quickly!

    My clinic did not charge a fee if we attended a seminar they had. My first week cost was 28 time 4 for the packets = 112 dollars and then another 110 dollars for the 1st month of supplements.
  • Going To Vegas
    I am going to Vegas this weekend for the NASCAR races. I have been tossing ideas around as if to stay partly on plan or not. I don't think I will go totally off plan but I would really like to have a few drinks with our friends and let my hair down for a few days. I have not had any alcoholic beverages since January 10th. I know the hard liquor does not have any carbs but I get such a headache from it sometimes. I had just turned to drinking beer but that is full of carbs unless you do the low carb beer and not sure I am going to be a fan of that. I see where some of you have mentioned drinking wine. What kind of wine would be a better choice?
  • Quote: I don't give a lot of credit to the inches when they are measured at my clinic. I just go by how my clothes fit. I think there are too many variables with getting measured, especially if it is not the same person everytime. I know we can lose inches and not weight on some weeks so this number is important, too bad we don't have a groove where the tape measure goes to insure it is put in the same place every time.

    Welcome to the board! These people are terrific with all their posts and I learn more here than I do from my coach.
    Ha! I'm with you on the measurements... I take my own at home so I know the data is consistent.
  • Soy cheese

    May I ask the brand name is of the soy cheese you use?
