Thanks all! My coach does weigh me in weekly, but never took my initial weight. So as of right now I am only technically down 5 lbs but it could have been more. She does not do any kind of measurments either...Anyway, I do hope to go down one clothing size by next month. The number on the scale does not bother me as much as my closet FULL of clothes I can not wear..

I officially restarted today with my coach weight is where I suspected 205. My coach said no restricted items for two weeks. That is fine with me. I am going to try the broccoli/cheddar soup today. I have a cold so looking forward to it

My initial coaching fee was $75. However, that was because I had sat through a hour long seminar about the program. If I wouldn't have done that, it would have been $150.

My total cost yesterday was $114.50. I know the coaching fee was $5. The rest was 3 boxes of bars and 1 pack of the 1 case (6 bottles) of the chocolate RTD.

It also seems like I have more required supplements. Fish oil, 6 Catalyn , 2 trace mineral B-12, 4 Natura Cal-Mag, 1 Natura Potassium, 1 calcium, and 1 Vitanox tablet.

I paid $100 for my coaching fee, and each packet or bar is $4. The vanilla RTD is $5. These are my favorite. I drink one almost every morning instead of having milk. I don't have to buy an entire box of anything unless I want to.
I weigh in later this morning. Very worried as is TOM and have horrible cravings. Broke down and had a small baked potato and a little bit of cheese last night with dinner. I figure at least it wasn't a bag of Doritos. Today I will not eat a restricted to try and get back OP.
Pants feel looser in thighs and waist, but not in hips. >sigh< I have had tons of comments at work about how great I look, though. This is definitely working, and I am hoping to be down 4lbs. today. that will put me at 199. Getting under 200lbs. earns me a hot stone massage! But if it doesn't happen today, that is ok. A massage next week will be just as relaxing.

I buy it from Bed Bath and Beyond or coffee for less. It's the K-cup type.

Yes, that is strange. I could have restricted after 4 weeks but chose not to. I told myself I would not have restricted until I had lost 35 pounds. Now that I have lost it, I treat myself once a week! If I did it everyday, I would ambush myself! Everyone is different and I am a foodaholic so I know my limitations!

How do the rest of you deal with temptations?
I would have done the same thing and if I am at a party and there is all this junk food I love I think:rat**** in it!!

Someone was filling in for my normal coach and I asked her when we get to eat the restricted foods. She said not until Phase 3 and Phase 4. That kind of bummed me out. I was hoping for a little more variety also.
I have to agree with timetolose, I would ask your regular coach. I have had one restricted a day since I began. Even on day one when I was following a "meal plan" that my coach had given me.
Aside from that - hooray for lost inches!!

I stalled in week 6 as well, then had a 4.5lb loss the next week. I know it's frustrating, but hang in there and don't cheat.

You did great! We've been out and to several different functions/parties lately, and it's been tough. Just make sure you don't let yourself get hungry and I make sure to either have my sw cheese curls or vanilla peanut bar handy so that I can feel like I'm indulging too.

Great job!!!

Normal Wednesday here. Just working away and maybe going to try on work pants at TJ Maxx on my lunch break...my 14's are falling off, but 12 was a little snug in the lower belly pooch last week. Hopefully I have better fit this week.

Hi all..
I haven't posted prior to this but recently was moved to phase 4. I started in late January at 205pounds and now am at 165. I plan on reading and staying motivating by your discussions. I won't meet with my coach for a month and wanted to stay true to the plan.

thanks for being here!

Am scared as heck that I will be set back by the travel-temptations, buffets! Any words of wisdaom of how to stay on plan? Geting my gallon of water a day in may be tricky as well. Thanks

- parchment paper (check your baking isle in the store)
- cookie sheet
- oven

It's a lettuce, I usually like them right out of the oven. I wash one bunch of kale, and piece it into 'chip' sizes. Put it in a bowl and use 3 tablespoons of olive oil and one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (you can use white if you don't like apple cider vinegar) and mix it all in with my hands. Then I lay them out on a cookie sheet with parchment paper and bake them at 300F (watch them close as I've burned them and it can STINK!). I'm not as particular about the 'laying out' part anymore either I just make sure they have enough room to 'dehydrate'. I used to put salt on them but I'm enjoying them without salt now. You can use the salt or whatever seasoning when they are 'layed out' on the sheet.

I consider them a lettuce (if I'm wrong and they are a veggie someone let me know), so once a week they are the little extra treat. I let my friend try some and she said they taste better warm. I can't seem to stop eating them when they come out of the oven so I haven't had them cooled.

Good morning all..A beautiful sunny day in Hardy today...I sent my fiancee out for his father's day present-he is going on a kayaking tour for half a day to go and see the whales..

Meanwhile, im at home, watching my daughter and eagerly awaiting my shipment from Nashua which i hope will come REAL soon..cause im desperate to start losing weight..(sigh) its been a long time coming to get this weight off and seeing everyone elses success makes me want to succeed too..besides..im heading down to redding,california in september and i really want to be able to wear some new shorts and go do some shopping for clothes too.. how many pounds do you think i could lose from now till september? and do you think i can have 4 protein servings a day since im on the heavier side? im not planning on doing restricted alternative products, i want my weight loss to be as successful as possible..
