Thank you all so much for your sweet compliments! I have to tell you though, being so big for so long I lost any bit of fashion sense I might have had LOL. That whole outfit came from Le Chateau, compliments of the sales girl helping me out...I obviously wanted a black shrug and she insisted I needed to get away from all the black. REALLY glad she convinced me

Don't do it! Don't cheat! Go to a friend or relative's house who have a scale if needed. A cookie is not worth the $85 a week to get back on plan. And it is not worth 30 seconds of pleasure vs a lifetime of feeling terrific!

Hi there, so good to hear how wonderful everyone is doing. I started the program on May 4th and have lost 10 lbs to date. After reading this forum which I just found, I learned my slower progress might be due to eating a restricted item everyday, but 10lbs off my body feels great!

Looking forward to the next 5lbs off and seeing everyone else succeed with IP!

That was me last week…remember? You were one of the kind people who encouraged me to stay strong and I’m happy to report I’ve had a super successful first week of phase 2. (WI tomorrow and I’m not as terrified as I usually am) Tap, tap, tap away those cravings – I know you can do it!

Susie!!! We've all been there! I'm sure you managed to stay OP

Hope that the tap class took your mind completely off it, and that you were able to enjoy yourself!

Well..I managed to "fry" myself today!

It was gorgeous here in Michigan. 87 degrees. The kids played in the lake for hours..and therefore, I got toasted. The water was way too cold for me to get in

Hope you all had a great day.

I'm firmly in a 12 and some 10s and I'm not going back. Honestly, it was hard to see those clothes go but I feel lighter already.

NSV for me from this weekend: my brother plays in a local band and I was hit on at his concert. I literally had no idea what was happening until mid way through the conversations. It was hilarious and flattering.
Isn't it nice being able to regift clothes to friends? One of my dear friends wore my favorite pair of Lucky capris to church yesterday and it was cool to see her rocking them. Good for you for letting them go. There was a woman on here last fall that just wasn't willing to get rid of any of her clothes because she wanted to keep them "just in case" - don't give yourself any excuse to go backwards!

The concert thing cracked me up too - the same thing has happened to me. I can be so oblivious sometimes. Generally if a boy is chatting me up, he's gay! Straight boys never used to talk to me.

IP is notorious for screwing with your cycle. It has just regulated mine, but I know other people have had a number of issues with it.

hey everyone,
I went for my first weigh in today, and according to the scale my coach has, I'm only down 2.5 lbs, but according to my scale, I'm down 12. anyone know why there might be a discrepancy? I even weighed myself as soon as I got home and still had this difference. It really discouraged me.

Thank you all for the support! I'm back from my tap class and happy to report that I did not give in! I came home, had my supper (grilled pork loin and broccoli) and went to my class. Tap completely turned it around for me and I feel great now! I just had my chocolate RTD and I'm going to be getting ready for bed soon. It was a good day!

Blue&White: You look just gorgeous! What a great picture!

BIG MAC (no cheese) IN A BOWL

________________________________________

• 1/2 pound raw ground beef, about 5 1/2 ounces cooked weight or 153 grams cooked *

• Salt and pepper, to taste

• 1 teaspoon minced dry onions

• 46 grams dill pickle slices or 2 dill spears, chopped, about 1 5/8 ounces

• 2 tablespoons WF Thousand Island Dressing

• 1 1/2 ounces iceberg lettuce, shredded

Brown the ground beef, drain off any fat, season with salt and pepper.. Meanwhile, soak the dry onions in a little water to rehydrate them. Put the meat in a large salad bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Toss and eat at once.

(I should note that I used fresh onions instead of dry)
Thank you!!!!! I have been looking for this recipe forever as well

Well, I don't want to offend anyone, as I know some have strong opinions about only weighing on the coach's scale. However, my coach's scale was really all over the place compared to mine (once was. 10 lb difference like yours) and it really messed with my head in those early weeks. It helped when my daughter, who's in health care, told me those scales do need to be calibrated from time to time, and aren't necessarily infallible.

Anyway, while I go for my weigh-ins, and record both weights, the one I consider 'official', is mine at home.

I know it's hard, but try to not let it bring you down. Just observe both for now, and before too long, you'll have clothes that are too big, and measurements that are changing, and the number on the scale will just be part of the whole picture.
