Personally I don't like the WF dressings either. Check out the recipe thread for some ideas. My new favorite lunch veggie is cucumbers and thinly sliced red onions soaked in a marinade I make up of EVOO, Apple Cider Vinegar, Salt, Pepper, Mustard, Lemon Juice, Splenda, and a touch of garlic. It would probably make a good salad dressing too but I don't measure it, I just do a glug of this and a pinch of that so I'm not much help. Just keep messing with it though, you'll find something you like.

Look at the ingredients. My guess is it probably has aspartame in it, but I do think I've heard of some people drinking it sparingly. If you have a coach I would ask them, but if you're doing it on your own you'll just have to look at the ingredients and make your own decision.

I weigh every day (I know, bad girl!!) and I have to say it just depends on my body and what it feels like doing at the time. Some weeks it's a little bit every day and some it doesn't budge until the day of.

haha we're the same way! Not sure what's going on this week with our bodies, but I wish you a good WI

I like buying cheap dresses and such at secondhand clothing stores but never know if I'll be able to get down to that size. I'm a size 18 right now.
I always hate thinking about clothing size. I'm also 6 foot, and all my life, even when I was at my smallest, I've always been in the bigger sizes of clothes. My smallest weight was 180-177, and I was a size 12/14. I'm 192 right now and still a size 12/14 haha.

I've never been in the 160s, which is my goal weight, but it would be nice to see a size 10 or size 8. ...I guess we'll just have to wait and see! One thing I do notice with this diet though, is that the inches lost seems to be even greater than the weight loss.

Isn't it frustrating haha? Last week, I was extra good (because I gained over X-mas)...the day before my WI, my scaled showed an 8lb loss. The morning of my weigh in, I got my period, and both my scale and the clinic showed only a 4lb loss. Grr lol! Next week you'll get the loss you're looking for

Mix it with 3.5oz of water and let it sit for a couple of minutes (it thickens up!) ...I like to add a bunch of spices to mine (parsley, garlic powder, and a little hot sauce!) ...warm up a pan on the stove and cook it like you would a pancake!

Hello all, we had weigh in #4 yesterday, I was down 5.3lbs, woohoo! The holidays were such a disaster, it felt great to know I was back on track. Daughter only lost 1 pound, still good considering she cheated on cheese and crackers at work, and she was doing 2 restricted a day! Her job is very physical and when they are short staffed she does not always get a chance to eat lunch. She was grabbing an extra bar in the bathroom. She is going to keep more rtds on hand. We are both learning how there is just no wiggle room on this diet.

I cleaned stalls this morning, pretty tired, but kept drinking water and did another packet as soon as I got back in the house. Seems to work ok.

Hang in there everyone.! This works, but it requires strict adherence. The good news is like many here, you will feel great after you get past the first week or so! I feel awesome!

Cheers

Went to Outback last night with my daughter. I haven't been there in at least 10 years. I think it will be a fav of ours for a few reasons.

1. So much to choose from and stay OP. I had a double side of steamed broccoli and a 6oz steak and it was delicious!

2. My daughter has a major gluten allergy and this place has quite an extensive GF menu including some desserts.

3. so my 13 yr old gets the flour less brownie with ice cream and the works and I was completely fine not having even a taste!! Really no craving at all. It looked good of course, but not as good as the 16 pounds I've lost so far!

Good to know about Outback. Thanks for sharing that. Now I know I have a good restaurant choice if I want to eat out.

I have trouble getting the veggies down too. What I do is wait about a half hour to and hour and then eat them. It helps. Good luck and stay strong

I always take my little packets of salad dressing everywhere and a little salt shaker of Sea Salt...even when I go to restaurants. I never worry about looking ridiculous cause i'm doing this for myself and not for anyone else!!

Good luck to everyone weighing in today.
I think sometimes that's a better feeling than seeing the scale go down!! Great Job!!
