This is a good sign!!
When our bodies burn fat, it releases estrogen into our blood stream that was trapped in our fat stores. This means you will feel irritable and may even have some TOM symptoms. Thats a great sign because you know you're body is burning fat! Good for you! It's totally normal. This is a hard journey and once you get past the first week things will get easier. Stay on this board often for encouragement. Congrats on starting your journey! You'll do great!

Aurora~ Someone mentioned to me, or maybe its was in some literature, that while you are going off of carbs you can have "withdrawal" like symptoms. I believe you could be suffering from that. Also you can become more emotional as hormones and chemicals are released from the fat stored in your body.
It'll be OK, and the sun will come up tomorrow, i promise Maybe ask your coach if you can have an extra protein pack a day or something else to help with the blues. The pudding/shake mix really does make great pudding, which feels rather treat-like.
I'll keep thinking of you and hoping you make it to this Thursday. The first week is the hardest, you'll make it through.

Also, I was wondering, is there anything I can add to water so it tastes better? Because it's really hard to drink so much water for me. I like water, and I don't drink anything else with meals, ever. But chugging down so much is just ugh.
Welcome to the post, this is a must doing this program!!! SO much support!

Crispy cereal I only eat as a pancake. Haven't tried it as cereal but it didn't seem appealing to me. I actually haven't tried it by itself as a pancake either, I love it mixed with the wild berry shake mix and just tried it tonight with the chocolate shake mix. Pretty good but still like the wild berry better. I usually use 1 packet of cereal (crushed with a rolling pin) and 1 of a drink mix, add 1/2 cup egg whites, 1/2 tsp of baking powder, 1-2 tsp of vanilla. Mix and add water to make a thinner batter, then I make two huge pancakes.....one for that day and one for the next.

I usually always have like a cup of spinach in my chocolate shake every morning .... No taste of spinach at all and super easy way to get veggies in!

Roasted broccolli and cauliflower is amazing.....I roast all my veggies now, zucchini, turnip, kale, peppers....everything! Add sea salt, onion powder garlic powder....whatever, experiment.


Mio is really great but you said you can't get it there. If you have no other option, I wonder what shipping would cost, is that an option?

Good luck and remember veggies should be measure as raw, once cooked they shrink

Matt is doing a little better, he has his good moments & his bad moments. But I think we have a better handle on it right this second and we're figuring out some of his seizure triggers, so hopefully we're on the UPHILL side of that!

I'm starting back on IP first thing in the morning. I'm so ready! I think I have my head on straight again & my eye on the prize, so here's hoping! I'm ready not to feel like crap anymore, I'm just drained. Now if I can get through the first week, I've done it before and I WILL do it again!

Here's to an awesome week I've missed you guys!
Welcome back, sooo glad your husband is doing better, sounds like your stress level has come down a lot. You WILL do great! Good luck in your first couple of days. Stay strong!

Thank you! It was pretty sweet. I will save it for a treat. It was not an ice cream but still nice. I might make some ice lips out of it if I can find the old Tupperware pop things or buy a replacement. I have sugar free Popsicles in the freezer but haven't gone there since week one or two when my coach said better not to. I keep this king its the same as sugar free gum which I have a few times a day Max for less than a card a piece.

Hi! Thanks for the ideas, I'll def be trying those.
I don't think shipping is an option, it's far too complicated and it takes like 3 weeks to get here :/, but i just read that it's fine to add some lemon to it, so I'll be doing that now

Went to a fight party Sat nite.... someone I know who is also doing IP was there. pizza, subs and fried foods were the menu...

I looked at her and chewed on my caramel nut bar.

On Sun I saw my sweetie who I haven't seen in a month ... he remarked about my weight loss and my hair (got it colored and lightened ) and couldnt keep his hand to himself !! yay!

We grilled last nite and he decided to cook an IP meal - Steak, Grilled Romaine Lettuce, Grilled Asparaus and Mushrooms. Plenty of Water.
he loved eating and cooking that meal...

not cheating has multiple rewards.

twas a great weekend.
LOL KBig! The 'I looked at her and chewed on my caramel nut bar' made me laugh, total mental picture of it! My son looked at me funny.

Really good job on staying OP! I would have been really tempted.

Welcome!

My coach says I can have a crystal light packet once a day. Also, decaf iced tea without any artificial flavorings is good when water is boring. You are going to do great!

You could try adding a slice of cucumber to it. Do you have crystal light where you live?
