That's hilarious! Hope you don't have security cameras at work. Might make for a funniest video shot!!

Good morning!
First day down. Stayed OP all day, drank my water, but my lunch wasnt so great...choked down my salad. It wasnt my usual, I was out of spinach, so maybe thats why??

I was feeling a little tired toward the evening and ready to have dinner. I made a stir fry with bok choy, celery, cabbage, mushrooms, broccoli and 6 oz of chicken breast. It was great!

Here is my update:
Monday 7/18/11 -200.0 lbs
Tuesday 7/19/11 -196.4 lbs
Wednesday 7/20/11 - 193.8

Down 6.2, I like that! Looking at this number should give me an extra push if I get those withdrawl symptoms today! This week can be challenging (headaches, thinking of carbs, Diet Pepsi, etc.)

Does anyone get queasy taking thier vitamins. I have never been a good vitamin taker and even after eating light, I still get nauseaus. In fact, I am feeling like that just talking about it...ick! Any ideas?

Have a great OP day everyone!
Hugs,
Leah

#1: I did not get on the scale except for my official WI. I forced myself to stay off the scale to avoid any stress that comes along with seeing fluctuating numbers. I just stayed OP and let the plan do it's thing.QUOTE]

I need to do this and always say I will but I find a reason I need to peek most days. I will try harder next week. Or maybe even put it away this time.

Way to go on your weigh in. You can do 3.6!

This may not sound right but, that's awesome. Love pants that are too big!

That is so funny! I have been walking around pulling up my pants every few steps too. Something about this diet makes you lose inches so quickly. You are lucky it didn't happen in the parking lot.

Last week, I maintained when it was time to weigh in. I knew that I had followed IP protocol 100%. I didn't let it discourage me because as women our body does strange things when it comes to losing weight. I go in this morning to weigh in and thankfully the woosh fairy visited me. I lost 6.2 pounds this week. So I have lost 37.2 pounds in 12 weeks. I am truly loving IP.

Yea Louisana Chick!! I am going to try and remember all the woosh posts. ....my 1st WI is Friday. I have been OP all week except for 1 tsp French's fried onions and 10 sea salt peanuts.......My accountability partner is all over thought, said "Don't plan to cheat", soooo, reading posts more often to stay on track, not really a huge cheat though, hoping it won't kill the 1st WI...

I think all of us ladies on here have had TOM issues, especially on this diet, and can sympathize. I have been told the same things that you have about fat storing estrogen and that being released all at once when you lose weight quickly. My coach suggested I go on a birth control pill to regulate everything, but I decided against it since last time I was on the pill I gained weight.
Honestly I would just say, for me at least, the stellar weight loss outweighs the annoyance of irregular or overly long TOM's. I look at it like this: It's a nuisance now, but so is not eating what I want and having to prepare so much more food than I used to. And it is not for forever. Weight loss is my priority, so I am not going to let my monthly visitor make me quit. I would say stick to the program.

Hahaha! I love this. If you needed any proof the diet was working this would be it. Time for new pants, I think... or at least a new belt. Glad nobody saw you. With my luck it would have been in front of a million people.

Just keep your eye on the final prize and the woosh fairy will visit you. She doesn't visit all the time but it sure it is nice when she is around. I would love to share her with everyone on these boards.

I have hypothyriodism and need to avoid soy. There r products here with low or no soy. I does limit what I have. Although thus is only my thrid day OP I feel great. Work with your counselor to find the low/no soy products. Good luck.

Okay, drinkning my Leek soup, made soup, put 1.5 C steamed broccoli and 1/2 cup bok choy (left from what I paid $7.35 for this weekend to stay OP!!!!!!!!!)some onion powder or salt (don't remember), sea salt, garlic powder and blended away, then in microwave for 1 minute....Pretty good! Prefer drinking it to eating with a spoon. How bad would the regular salt mess you up OP? Anyone know?
