Thank you. My clinic gave me Novi-Lax a while ago and it was helping most of the time until I started p2. I may look into the tea if things dont get "moving" this next week with phase 3. Most of my breakfast meals I have planned out have around 15-24g of fiber JUST in the breakfast.. on top of the rest of the day I should be getting a LOT of fiber.

Had to share. So my boss just asked me, "Did you know today was National Star Wars Day?" We had a good laugh over it.

May the fourth be with you all!

  • measuring my salt
  • measuring my veggies (I have gotten bad about this...)
  • no more extracts (I was using alcohol free), very limited WF products, no more baking powder
  • decreasing cal mag to 2/day
I have been 100% OP this whole time! My coach is concerned that stress has something to do with it. I am supposed to go to Afghanistan in July (I have a 3 year old and an 18 months old...makes it very hard to leave!)- we were already trying to get pregnant before we found out using fertility meds, so we have continued with that in hopes that I get pregnant before July but we havent had any luck so far in the past 3 months, I have to be within military standards by next week or I will be ineligible to go and my career will be affected, our house is for sale so we can try to move closer to my parents before I have to leave, etc, etc. The good thing is, IP has given me something to focus on so I dont spend so much time worrying about things I have no control over!

My coach is going to an IP conference in Chicago this weekend, I hope she finds out some good info This is going to be a BIG week for me!!
Thanks for your service to our country, Teden...good luck this week! Just a question...why go down to only 2 cal mag? Just curious!


As for me, looking forward to WI #5 tomorrow on my 30th birthday! I'm asking for the whoosh fairy!

I keep thinking about how much more longevity we're getting out of everything - better gas mileage because there's 100lbs less being driven around in the car. Less stress on our mattress now that there's 100lbs less sleeping on it.

Makes me feel even better!
You are so funny, I never thought about losing weight and saving gas. Have a great weekend everyone.

Has anybody come up with clever uses for the Soy Patty? I had tried to make breakfast sausage patties out of it but that didn't go so well. I have a box and I don't dislike it but I'd like some ideas on other things to do with it besides making a soy patty.

Down 2.4 this week. I was hoping to get to 3 pounds but did not. The funny thing is today I weighed myself at home and I was down 1 pound from yesterday morning. So here's to a good week. Only 2 pounds to go to get to my 3 pound weekly loss goal!

Good Morning, everyone!!! I just got back from my WI, and even though I felt like I hadn't lost anything (and may have cheated with a beer on a date earlier this week), I am down 4 more lbs!!! Finally down into the 140's, which I haven't seen in 8 years! I had a really difficult week trying to stay OP, and I definitely couldn't have done it without reading through everyone else's trials and successes every day. You all are the best, and now I have a renewed energy to see this through until the end! Thank you, all of you!

this happened to me I weighed in on Wednesday dropping one pound then got on my Wii yesterday and dropped 4 from Wednesday...CRAZINESS I tell ya....lol

Looks like we have a lot of WI's today so make sure you log them into the challenge and GOOD LUCK to everyone. Seems like everyone is staying OP with little to no issues. I am going to my mom's until Monday, family reunion on Sunday so that should be interesting....lol....Have a great weekend everyone

Thanks, gave us a good laugh as DH and I are in the car now on the way to our Michigan cottage. I've lost 45 lbs and DH 10. His was not intended as he needs to gain at least 10 and then some. Hmm. With gas prices, better gass mileage would be great.

As for the mattress, we have a waterbed. Before I started, I could not get out of it over the frame without DH getting on and displacing enough water to raise me high enough. Now, 45 lbs less,it's not a problem. NSV.

Almost time for the Subway stop. Sure would be lost on the road without their salad. Makes it soooooo easy.

Check in later. Really cool being able to check on the road with our new netbook.

What are the maximum daily carbs that we are not to exceed? I quickly Scanned Dr. Tran's book and also searched for specific carb posts but was unsuccessful finding the information. I also analyzed a recent week of daily carbs and was surprised that I was above 40 carbs for 5 of those days. I now know that 1 cup of cauliflower has 5 carbs and 1 cup of broccoli has 11 carbs. Many days I was eating 2 cups of both or a total of 32 carbs for just the veggies.

40 is the max you should be getting in

I just had this freak out last night. You need to also take a look at your fiber, because that cancels out the carbs. Like I had 51g of carbs yesterday, but I also had 15g of fiber, so I had 36 net carbs. This website will explain things better than I can. http://www.livestrong.com/article/53...ual-net-carbs/

Thanks Wuv and Joy - just when I thought I knew many things I found there is still some learning I need to do. I am more confident now that I can get into, and stay in, ketosis.
