Late yesterday and then some
 
Overnight - Friday after 10 pm EDT
  • JKF added herself to the list of those interested in info on the NoviCleanse product
  • Novak and marypeter shared Skinny Minny status and talked Northern VA locales
  • wyoangel went a "little bit rogue" with dinner but is back on track for TODAY!
  • kju and Linden cooked up some rutabaga info
  • JessicaCourez reported on a business golf event and asked whether veggies checked in luggage would survive the flight
  • and Linden's advice on checking food as baggage is that it would probably be ok. She's checked one of the most temperature sensitive foods, chocolate, and it survived a long trip with many transfers.

If you asked a question that didn't get answered, please -- :^: pretty please :^: -- don't take it personally. Just check the end of the thread to see if it was answered. If there's no answer, feel free to post again today!

Hi, not really replying to a quote, just wanted to thank you for reminding me that I have to know where I started to to get where I want to be....as Dr. Phil says, you gotta own it to change it (or something close to that) so I'm owning the fact that I am still obese but taking charge and doing something about it. Years of yo-yo dieting messes with your head so I have to work on that part of me also. Sigh I'm a work in progress for sure....thanks again..the people here are as always very supportive.

Marilyn, It's good news that you're a work in progress -- we all are! The alternative: we're worm food. ;)

hi Pumkyparry!

I agree with you about "owning it". For me it is also about not making excuses anymore. For many years I found excuses for my weight and almost was convinced that I really had no control over it. I delt with low thyroid and other medical conditions which probably contributed to my weight gain but didn't want to really take "ownership" for what I was feeding my body.
I had to accept being a carbaholic and was so happy to find out about this wonderful diet plan that has finally been able to help me resist carbs. I can't even describe how nice it is to not feel compelled to consume the foods that caused my obesity in the first place.
The rapid weight loss and relief from the carb cravings is a big part of the reason that this plan is successful for me.

Novak,

We probably use the same IP clinic (you past tense): Dr. W. in Herndon. If you are at his "How to Keep It Off" seminar next Saturday, I'd love to give you a hug of thanks from everyone on this forum for all of your support!

Good morning all !

My plans for the weekend include a little work (IP related) and taking in The Switch with a friend. The movie looks pretty good and well frankly I deserve the treat. I am planning on sneaking in at least one of either the Chocolate Mixed drink or the BBQ chips to enjoy during the matinee too.

Also, I am very close to being ready to share my real name and before and current photos.......I will be completely ready when Dave poses for us in a Speedo.....so lets encourage him ;) ;) ;)

Have a great weekend everyone - wishing you all success !!
Cheers

Retreating to the computer was good plan......darn pizza! I had a similar problem on Thursday night. Sitting at the table at bowling - the son :devil: of one of my teammates was standing behind me with a big container of warm nachos. Yikes! The smell was too much for me - not because I craved them, but because they smelled so "greasy" - ugh! I had to get up and visit some other friends on another lane for awhile. I survived the night by bringing along a bar to snack on and drinking a pitcher of water.

I was hoping to get a walk in today, but it's chilly and rainy this morning. I guess I'm forced to clean the house. :p

Have a great weekend, all! Stay on plan and reap the rewards!

Good morning everyone!

Sorry I have not been around in a few days..I was feeling a little down, as as the weight was not coming off as fast now as it did the first 3 weeks.. however, I have picked myself back up, dusted me off and am feeling positive again!!!!

I bought the keytostix yesterday and did it this morning with first morning bathroom break and it says high level?? I am hoping the stix will keep me positive that I am still burning fat.. I know there have been many discussions on the stix, but I thought... its worth a try!!

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend.. and congrats on all success and NSV's!

Take care,
Candace:carrot:

For me also....I could never understand how anyone could eat one bagel....I absolutely had to go back for more....and, yes, who could ever imagine losing weight without carbs and NOT cravings them... I want to shout it from the housetops!!!

Yeah -it's the weekend!
Drinking my Mango drink - not enjoying it so much - does anyone else end up with little curd like things on the top even after lots of stirring and shaking?
I think I'm just feeling sorry for myself as I was always a breakfast girl and a drink or pudding for breakfast is not my thing...

pumpkyparry 09-11-2010 12:52 PM

I was thinking today of Jordana while I was in the kitchen choppiing veggies and getting my lettuce chopped and in a lock and lock for later....she was soooo helpful when I was a Newbie....her hints of what to do with the IP packets were great....last night for snack I had her vanilla pudding/coffee/SF DaVinci syrup heated drink...it was awesome and comforting. If anyone speaks with her please wish her well with her pregnancy and let her know she is really missed here.

Have you tried a blender, or the Bullet? Some of the packets are somewhat harder to mix but as you go along your tastes will change and you will get favorites that you really look forward to...my friend who did this program told me that...I didnt believe it, but it's true....try to think of that as only a small part of your day...hope it helps. I have 2 60 ft mango trees in my backyard and peeled, chopped and froze mango's in July till my freezers are full....waiting for the time when I can have fruit again.

Does anyone know how many grams of fat a day should we stay under ? And calories, and protein and carbs?
