Thanks a bunch!
This is likely about the best choice for you as it is a very mild fish. It really takes on the flavour of whatever spices you use. I never have had a problem with frozen fish, I think much of it is flash frozen right on the boat so is just like fresh when you prepare it.

Wyo1963, I just realized that you started 2 days after me and have lost 10 lbs more than me. What are you doing differently than me? It looks like you exercise (I was told not to.) Is there anything else? I've stayed OP for the whole time.

I'm very happy for you, but I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong.

Heidi

Hey all. Lot's of interesting things to read here today! I want to congratulate all of you who had loses, NSV's, and feelings of strength the second time around on IP. I had a rough day today. I didn't "cheat" or anything (that's just not in my plan), but I didn't get all my vegetables down. I was just having a stressful day and eating in general made me feel a little nauseous. I didn't really eat all my chicken at dinner either. So in that aspect I am a little disappointed in myself. I guess its better than my usual stress response (order a stuffed crust pizza from Pizza Hut lol) so I need to focus on it in a more positive light. Hope you guys have a great night & thanks for sharing your stories, it really keeps me motivated and strong. Much love <3

Today I got off Island,but my coach wasn't available to weigh or measure me. Because I am working so much,I just got my food and carried on with my day. Hopefully I can get over to weigh next Monday. The funny thing is,I'm not disappointed that I didn't get weighed. I absolutly know I'm dropping the weight,with my cloths feeling Bigger and I feel bones I'm haven't in a few years. I am remaining strong in my desire to end this Batttle with the Bulge. 16 days to Mexico and less of me will be boarding that plane.......Skipping a happy dance here.

Just think when we all are eating healthier these foods will be "once and a whiles" which is what they should always have been.
By the way, I am also in week 3. I have lost weight but not inches. Everyone is different. Don't be discouraged, the weight will come off. I can't speak for you but in the mean time I am learning patience, healthy choices, and to not eat my feelings. Keep on keepin' on.
Thank you for responding, I suppose I'm so focused on the number 'weight, lbs' that I failed to look at the big picture... I assumed I would lose 3-5 pounds a week and was very disappointed that I didn't reach that number and can't figure out where I went wrong. I am happy I lost a pound, I suppose I was being greedy and wanting more
I appreciate your comment

I start IP officially tomorrow!!! I am super excited and really really ready for this change. I have a ton of support and the place I get my food sells by the package. They tell you to do a boot camp your first few weeks and stick to Soups, Drinks and Puddings to take the most advantage. I have to do the Alternative plan because of my diabetes! I hope this goes as well as I hope. I will be checking in often and posting more I am sure!

Thanks for sharing!

I've wondered this myself. It's a bit disappointing but I've reminded myself that everyone loses differently. Perhaps you have bigger losses later or more consistently. Maybe you just started off with less water weight and loss less at the very beginning. Maybe you're ages are different and you metabolize differently. Or maybe it just means your gonna lose slower. As long as it's working right?! I have faith that you're doing it right and you'll continue to lose! Good luck!

I find it VERY exhausting and VERY aggravating to see all of the cheats. Going on a diet is by choice, meaning you are trying to CHANGE your way of eating and by CHEATING that is NOT CHANGING your way of eating. Its a commitment you (we) make to ourselves just like as if we were entering a relationship or even marriage. YOU have to want it to work, ONLY YOU can change it, Peer pressure, social events, life in general WILL ALWAYS BE THERE...it is HOW YOU CHOSE to deal with it, THAT is the choice you make. You can be STRONG and just socialize when at gatherings OR you can give in because you don't wanna feel "left out" BUT actually WHO is looking at you if you don't drink or eat? is everyone?....NO, it is YOU who feels uncomfortable its is YOU who feels left out so YOU give in and accept it. YOU have to be STRONG and say to yourself I AM WORTH THIS.....I DON'T HAVE TO HAVE THAT DRINK or I DON"T HAVE TO EAT THAT....I think most people would be PROUD of you for STANDING your ground and saying NO and STICKING TO YOUR PLAN!...YOU have to find the INNER STRENGTH to OVERCOME the obstacles in life...LIFE will NOT stop because you are on a diet, it does go on....sorry, just how I feel

I was just talking to another friend who is having trouble getting started again and I posted this EXACT same thing to her....this was her reply..."well said. see this is why you are going to be a great coach...you lay it out and tell it as it is...not everyone is going to like it but the message is true...and you know you brought up a lot of good points...would i cheat on my husband because the guy at the other end of the room looks hot...heck no so why am i cheating with food.wow seriously you are what i needed to talk to...you have ignited a fire that was lost. alright...i got to look at this diet as a marriage..it'll work if i work at it.".....See this "CLICKED" for her....So I challenge each and everyone of you who have been cheating or contemplating to cheat to MAKE THAT COMMITMENT TO YOURSELF......
AMEN!

One of my brothers is getting married this weekend. This is a 400+ person guest list, people wearing gowns & tuxes affair in NY - the money spent on invitations alone would boggle your mind.

I will likely never be invited to such an event again, however, the reason I am going is to witness the marriage, not to make someone feel better because I ate the fancy food or drank the free booze. I want the memories from the experience, not a hangover and an upset stomach. I do not know what will be served at the rehearsal dinner & reception, but I will only eat what is offered if it is OP. Not once have I thought, "well I will just have a sip of champagne to celebrate" - NOT ONCE. I don't need the sip in order to have a good time or to fully experience the wedding and I might be one of the few that can actually remember the entire event.

I have a bag packed with WF dressing packets, shake packets, bars and what I call MRE chicken (vacuum sealed chicken). I have already put a bar & MIO in the clutch I am using and I haven't even finished clothes packing yet. I can get water everywhere so all I need to find are salads/veggies over the weekend which won't be hard at all.

Am I a little bummed that I won't be partaking in the food aspect of the weekend? Honestly I am....a little, but I got over it. This event is one of the last times my entire family will be together for a happy occasion - that is what I am focusing on - not the food.

This weekend I am standing as a witness to a marriage, but every day I stand up for my own truth and I will not disappoint myself.
Well said ptod! Weddings, baby or bridal showers, etc. are not about the food and drink but about the event itself and what it represents. We must all remain true to our goals and remember why we are doing this. There will be many events in our lives after we reach our goals where we can taste the food and drink (in moderation of course).
