Put a period on last week and move on. You can never go back but you can make your future the way you want! Like life, we all fall down but the important thing is we get back up, otherwise we would be steppin over a lot a people walking to work.

It is still warmer than Iowa. At least there isn't any snow here. I have been off protocol since December and have made plans to restart IP as soon as I get home in a week. Hopefully I haven't done too much damage but the jeans feel tight. It's a funny feeling when you go off protocol just a few pounds makes me feel fat! Gearing my mind and body up to restart. I am hoping to finish this journey on IP by the time summer arrives and the wearing shorts time will be here. The mental part is the toughest.


Welcome back!


Everyone take care.

I am just feeling at a loss for what else to do. I am waiting to find out if I should be doing the cleanse or not - I am trying to focus on the protein while I am not feeling well, but honestly the thought of eating at all makes my stomach toss and I feel like I need to grab a garbage can.
Camio,

I have been following your posts and I'm worried about you. I am not a doctor (but I am a nurse). Abdominal pain is NEVER normal. It doesn't mean you have something horribly wrong with you but it does need to be evaluated by a medical professional, not your coach. Abdominal pain with loss of appetite deserves a visit or at least a call to your primary care provider.

Let us know how you are doing.

Lynn

Rondar..Congrats to you as well, it does feel totally amazing!! I agree the 160's seem to take forever, so maybe that means 150's will fly by for both of us...Fingers and toes are crossed

Just got back from WI. I have lost another 4 pounds which brings my weight loss down to -56.2. My original goal was to lose 60 pounds but I am thinking I will move my goal back to 70 pounds. I plan to start phasing off at the end of March. One of my sons is getting married in mid June and I want to enjoy all the celebration / food, etc. Plus by the end of March I will have been on IP for six months (seven months including phasing off during April) and I think it will be a good time for a break.

How much water did you drink before your WI? I weighed my water bottles and found out that one of my 32 oz. bottles (filled) weighs 2 lbs. Don't worry too much about the scale discrepancy... I've gotten on the same scale 4 times in a row and got 4 different weights, spanning a 10 lb range.

I would think so! I'll have to look at the new phase 1 sheet... As soon as I find it.

I pay $4/packet ($28/box) - my coach lets me buy by the packet. And I think a third of the people here are doing this on their own! There's no stigma here, as far as I know!

I know you've already gotten some of your questions answered, but I thought I'd chime in. I googled it and 1 ounce = 28 grams, so you're right, that's a giant burger. Saving half is a great plan. I've heard Red Robin is really flexible for those on protein diets and will bring you your wrapped in lettuce so you can pick it up. The only thing you might want to check on is if the mushrooms are sauteed in anythiing - knowing Red Robin, it's probably butter or something! Have fun! (And I'm really glad it isn't the pizza place...) How is the visit going so far?

Lynn's right - time to talk to a doctor. Or maybe you need to take a week off the program and see if it changes anything about the way that you feel. Or do both.

and Kale chips!! I took them to a party so I would have something on the appetizer table I could eat. I didn't get hardly any! Everyone loved them! and I put root beer flavored stevia in the vanilla RTD it tastes like a root beer float! YUM

Maggie how long do you roast them for and at what tempeture. Do you have to add any water to them?

I roast my Asparagus, zucchini, mushrooms (leave them whole it works better) and cauliflower. The reason the cauliflower is my fav is because it doesn't shrink as much as the rest of the stuff does. You can bake it on about 400 turning when it's nice and brown, I don't have that much patience so I put them under the broiler and watch them closely. I put a little EVOO and sometimes some spice but that's it, then I dip them lightly in WF Caesar dressing..YUM!! Let me know if you try it.

I put mine in a large zip lock bag and add lemon juice and a little EVOO. I use all the veggies Maggiemagu does. I cut the zucchini into 1/4" long slices.
I have a grill pan, you know the kind with all the little holes, and put them on the grill on med. turn them after 10 minutes when they have the lovely grill marks. yum you are correct, the cauliflower is AWESOME grilled. I have also sliced turnips and grilled them too. They are soooooooooo sweet!
