Even 10 weeks in, I still have moments of the boredom munchies--I'm at work, doing the same thing, and I want a snack. I finally found the best thing for it! My office has an ice machine with crushed ice.

I put sugarfree syrup (mostly the DaVinci's from Walmart, but I ordered more flavors online) on a big cup of crushed ice, and eat it with a spoon! It's coarser than real snow cone or shaved ice, but it does the trick! At home I have to crush the ice in the blender, but it works at home, too. It takes a while and I get to crunch sugar-free frozen water, which fulfills my need for a snack. I didn't need the food, I needed the routine!

Good morning everyone!!

to all the people starting and restarting their journey!

Planning on a quiet day at home today. We're supposed to be getting a ton of rain, and I just don't want to be out in it. Wah! Lol! I have noticed that being home is the hardest, when we're in our routine I don't even hardly think about food. However; being home it's around ALL the time and I'm not hungry, it's just out of habit I might think about grabbing something.

I'm retaining water like mad these past two days and I can't figure out why. It's driving me mad!! I can tell as soon as I wake up in the morning because my fingers feel swollen and sure enough when I get on the scale it's up a bit. The strange thing is I should be in the week safest and furthest away from TOM this week. I think my body maybe conspiring against me. I was so close last week to a new decade and when I hit the next one I have a new lipstick all picked out I am going to treat myself to. I haven't changed anything so I guess my body will just get rid of it when its good and ready!

I hope everyone has a great day!!

So, let me ask you (because I've wanted one ever since I saw it on QVC) does the ninja really make "Snow" like they show on TV? I keep seeing them in the stores and thinking about investing, but I haven't made the plunge because I was very disappointed in the magic bullet.

Good morning everyone,

And good luck to everyone starting and new on this program.

I weighed myself today to discover I gained 3 whole pounds!!!! How and Why... it really beats me.... It seems that I am gonna die before reaching my so longed for onderland.

I know that it is something hormonal since I have sore breasts, so I am sure hormones are playing havoc within my body, but seriously... I was so sad to see the number going up!!!

I will sure stick to the program even more so than before.

Next month, it will be my birthday and I am so looking forward to be under 200 by then, but it seems so hard! Everytime I am so close, I go up again, I feel like crying, I once reached 201 then went up to 209 then went down to 202 and now up to 205!!!! I mean seriously!!! All I want as a first goal is to be 199, just that for now, just that (

Wow! 3 days over already! Looking forward to great things to come! My NSV is actually that - I have not weighed myself since starting. Of course, I actually put the scale in another room. I was addicted to weighing myself and then would usually be unhappy with the results. I want my WI to be my official results - no matter what time of day.

Welcome to the other new posters. There is great support and information here.

I made the chocolate mug cake - it overflowed the large mug and was quite light but still delicious. Only 2 mins in the micro though. I will try topped with DaVinci syrup next time.

Here is a tip for being able to find recipes and other ideas easily: I copy and paste them to a document which I save. Mine is called IP recipes. This way I can make notes on what I liked, how long I cooked, etc.

Good morning IPeeps!

5 weeks today and down 25 lbs! I hope that this momentum keeps going. Some weeks I lost a couple lbs., some more than that but so happy with where I am at and love that IP works!

Tired today from my late night at work. It is going to be another long day. I need to make that chocolate mug cake one of these days! Sounds good

Hang in there! Your body is fighting this weight loss, it will let go. Don't let it get you down. You are doing amazing!!! This is just a little bump in the road.
