I don't have an IP recipe, but the South Beach recipe was simply to cook the cauliflower until mush, add I can't believe its not butter spray, pepper and salt and mash it up untl it the consistency is like mash potatoes. I would just use the IP sea salt.

I just tried it and it really wasn't bad at all. The consistency is not great, but I added cinnamon and put the bowl in the microwave for 20 seconds. Much better.

I am so proud of you and I can't wait to hear what he says when he sees you. Your pictures look great!!! Congrats!!!
Only a riggers wife understands the life of the rigs I miss him all the time but it affords me the opportunity to be a stay at home mum

What took you to Houston? Bet you don't miss the cold winters!!

Opps! Forgot to post quote - this was the 1st one I missed. Haven't been on the board for over a week.


What was your start date? I think we may be about the same time. I started 2/8.

I stirfry shrimp with bean sprouts, zuccini and pea pods in 1 tsp olive oil and then put on a little low sodium soy sauce. You can also use chicken, beef, whatever.

Both of those things are happening this week. I should never have gotten a scale! This is the 2nd week that this has happened and on Friday I weigh and if it hasn't moved or has gone up at all I get upset and then don't follow the diet over the weekend. I mean I don't stray too far but enough to ensure I won't have any weight loss for the week but I don't kno maybe it's because of those weekends few and far between that I am able to stay strict during the week days. The last time this happened I came back and had a 7 lb. loss the next week. I wish I had more will power sometimes. I am going to give away my scale until after I am done with IP. It's too tempting and too easy to justify my actions on the weekends.

My husband knew I started the diet because I started the diet on Monday the 18th of January and he left on Wednesday the 20th of January, but I have not said a word to him about it since. I'm sure he's forgotten, or afraid to bring it up thinking it didn't work out for me. I can't wait for him to come home!! He comes home this Wednesday and I really hope he notices!!
I'm so happy that your husband is coming home! It must have been a tough 5 weeks. I went and checked out your pictures and wow what a difference!
Although I hate my thighs and am counting every cm. they shrink I love seeing the change in my face!! There is no way he won't notice!!

I don't know about anyone else, but I have a love/hate relationship going on with the weekends! On one hand, I LOVE the weekends because I get to relax and spend time with my hubby and family. On the other hand, I have WAY too much time on my hands. I try to keep busy and not think about food, but it gets really hard sometimes. During the week, I am sooooo busy at work that I don't even give it a second thought. But then comes Saturday and Sunday and oh boy........ I want to find an even balance between relaxing and staying busy when I have time off, but I am starting to dread the weekends. Anyone else have this problem??

Libbyshims -restaurant favorites...this is going to look like I have a real addiction to eating out...but a couple favorites that I can eat at without blowing the IP diet...

Applebees - Grilled Tilapia/salad/brocolli
Ruby Tuesday - Tilapia or steak
Texas Roadhouse - Steak/salad/veges and of course Subway.

Mystical Mamma - your loss comparisons make me laugh hysterically. It's funny you mention it though - I have made the comment I have lost the weight of my two Jack Russells and truly can't carrying them around all day. I think I was totally in denial about my weight gain!
