Happy Wednesday to everyone. Sounds like everyone is having a pretty good day!!

Just wanted to say I tried the turnip fries tonight for the first time and WOW I was impressed. I couldn't get over how much they tasted like fries. it felt like I was cheating but I wasn't. I was a French Fry aholic before IP, I love how the turnip curbs the craving for fries. Last night I had mashed cauliflower instead of mashed potato and was quite impressed with that also.

Hope everyone else has a successful week and great weight losses.

well...after all my stress about how i was less than perfectly on plan on vacation....I had WI#5 today and I am exactly the same!!! That's not something I would have rejoiced about two weeks ago when I was losing between 3-12 pounds a week, but, for me, this was a victory! I am back on plan 100% now and excited to see what next week holds for me. Yay!!

Hello~Welcome to IP and this forum. Just a suggestion about the challenge of getting all of your water in: I keep a 16.9oz water bottle on my nightstand every night. The first thing I do in the morning is drink the whole bottle of water before I even climb out of bed. Then I start my morning routine that includes taking my (not IP which I take after breakfast) vitamins and meds, I always take these with 8oz of water. So before I even start breakfast I have 3+ of my 8oz of water done. When I start to get that drop around mid morning I drink another 16.9oz only I add 1/4 tsp sea salt. For me I'd rather drink it than try to salt all of my food. I've noticed that this seems to tame my hunger until lunch and it gives me a pick-me-up. I do this again around mid afternoon. By this time I have my 8+ cups of water done. I usually drink water with dinner and stop for the evening or I'm up all night going potty.
THE BIG BONUS is that after you drink water for a bit your body will crave it!
This will be a fun (and trying) change but the weight loss and a healthy you is the biggest reward ever!

Day 2 and doing fine. I am a little hungry, but not overly. Getting ready to meet my hubby for lunch where there is a nice salad bar so I can stay OP. I wore some very springy clothes today because finally the sun is shining and it is supposed to be 70! Woo Hoo.

Took a picture and made it my new avatar. Have a great day!
