Just back from my WI week 8 and down 3.8 lbs and 1.5 inches - woo hoo! I was hoping for a good number since I had TOM last week and boy did I need the encouragement. When you're practically jumping up and down in the frozen aisle at Trader Joe's because you've discovered a new lean protein source (in this case turkey burgers) you know the diet's getting hard to stick to

Hope everyone has a great OP weekend!

Thank you, Wuv and NavyMommy for your encouragement yesterday. I'm really thankful for this forum and I can spend an hour or two each day just soaking everything in. Only 3 more days until my WI and I hope to have a loss, as I am 100% OP. I will be happy with anything.

Good morning!!

Heading out to the store because I am out of veggies for lunch today Really looking forward to my WI Monday because I can already tell a big difference in my body. It feels really good.

Tonight I think I am going to cook a pork tenderloin marinated in soy sauce and garlic. Yum, one of my favorites mainly because it feeds the whole family and I just need to add a few extra sides for them. Plus it's something a little different for me. Tomorrow night is girls night We're going out for sushi, yum!!

Oh, and Bellamack

Have a fabulous day everyone
I can't wait to hear how you've done!!

WI this morning, -2.6...i can't believe that maybe in a month or so i could be in onederland

Have a great week-end everyone!
Isn't it strange I've not been that excited about shopping for clothes either. It's getting chilly here some days and all I really have are short sleeve / sleeveless tops that I pair with a jacket because I don't want to spend money on new clothes when I'm not going to fit in them in a few months. However; I am REALLY looking forward to my shopping spree when I'm at goal. I'm already saving up any extra money I find so I can go all out from panties and bras to shoes.

That would be ketosis breath. I know it's gross Talk to your coach, mine was okay with any sugarfree gum even though most contain aspartame and I trusted her because she lost a ton of weight on this diet, but some only want you to chew the IP approved gum, Spry I think it's called. I've also heard Denytene Fire Cinnamon doesn't have aspartame but I don't like cinnamon so I haven't looked into it.

The other good thing for a freshness boost is the Listerine breath strips. Those are my favorite!! I keep a pack in my purse and car so whenever I'm about to talk to someone or whatever I can pop one. Be aware too that your urine might also start to smell strange. It's your body releasing the Ketones and is totally normal.

When I was in that kind of situation I usually just asked for oil and vinegar and lemon wedges and used a tiny bit of oil and a squeeze of lemon, plus salt and pepper. Personally though I don't think anyone will notice / care if you bring your own dressing, it's all going to be about the mama to be and no one will be paying attention to you.

I also would probably eat before hand (depending on what time it is) just in case the salad is already dressed or they don't have anything for you. If you're starving it will be so much more tempting to cheat, and if you go having already eaten you can honestly just tell them you're not hungry.

Good luck to you. I am sure that you will do just fine. I have just started and this is my first time. This is a great place to come for motivation!

It does get a little better with time. MY coach won't let me use anything that isn't natural, but I did buy something that's just sugar free and only take as needed anyway. Keep the mints close, you'll need them for awhile. Thank you ketosis.

Don't feel funny. I think most people will understand. Also I would eat your protein before going so you aren't that hungry during the event.

Hope everyone is having a great Saturday. It's beautiful and in the 70;s here today in Austin. What happened to winter? I think we are going shopping for a new TV today and hopefully getting some outside time while the sun is shining and it's warm.

Congrats to those who had good WI's today.

Entering week 6 and in no way want to cheat...that being said, I know what some of you mean in previous threads that said you just wish you could lose even faster and be on to the next phase. Me too. It took years to put on the weight, but geeze, can't get off fast enough for me! Trying to stay positive and be pleased with the loss today. Good luck and support to all on this journey.....
My Mom used to always say, "You didn't put it on overnight, so you won't take if off overnight either." ...although with this diet, I feel like it's coming off wayyyy quicker haha! You're doing great with your losses...wish mine was as fast

Hope everyone has a great weekend! And stay OP.
A loss is a loss - you're doing great

I have been on the plan exactly 30 days today and have lost 19 pounds. That is .63 of a pound each and every day...how can I complain about that! And any food type I am craving, there is a packet for it...sweet, crunchy, salty, smooth, CHOCOLATE! Love, love, love this diet!
I feel the same way - if there's something I'm craving, there's a packet for it haha. I'm a sweet-tooth fanatic, and I have to say, this diet makes my cravings minimal!

Isn't it awesome fitting into clothes you never thought you'd wear again? It's just as good as watching the scale move haha!

I always ask for oil and vinegar, and just use it sparingly. Almost every restaurant has it

Hey question for all. Any one know about the "skinny water" Is it allowed? It is ZERO across the board and very tasty.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

I'm starting to get a little nervous about my WI on Tuesday. I've been OP perfectly, but my scale hasn't seemed to budge more than a pound or so. It's my TOM, so I know that might have something to do with it, but I was hoping to see a really good loss this week.

For those of you who weigh at home, do you notice your weight tends to drop throughout the week, or closer to the time of your next weigh in?
