You read that article too? I thought it was super informative and made sense. It was on WebMD too, or a reference to it was. I'm gonna soldier thru the summer and not hopefully start phasing off until I hit goal (hopefully in 5 months...50 lbs, 5 months, sounds achievable)

I swear that right now I'd sell my soul to the devil if it would enable me to eat a Milkyway bar without it doing anything to my weight loss haha

WI#2, down to 208 for 8 lbs total for two weeks (technically 7.5 lbs going only by the Tues to Tues record). Unfortunately I've been at 208 deadsticked since Saturday. The big mongolian grill meal on Mothers Day probably didn't help, neither did the completely unexpected Chinese dinner with PILs yesterday where I chose cashew chicken. Even taking into account my not touching the rice, peas and carrots, the cashew chicken was probably 40-50g of carbs. Ugh. At least it's not a gain, so I guess I should be thankful for that. *sigh*

Made up some delish SF meringue cookies. Here's how I do them:

4 egg whites (no trace of broken egg yoke, otherwise it won't fluff)
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
2/3rds cup of baking Splenda
1 tsp lemon or other extract of choice

Place egg whites in bowl with cream of tartar. Use a mixer beater on gradually high speed to whip it to 4-5 times volume. Turn off beater, dump in sweetener and extract, beat at high speed to increase again 50-100% until the meringue is white and there are stiff peaks that don't droop once the beater is off. Preheat oven to 275F. Pipe meringue or spoon drop into small cookies on parchment. Meringue doesn't spread while cooking, so a one inch separation is fine. Bake for 20 minutes, then turn cookie sheet(s) around and bake another 20 minutes. They should be lightly browned.

I am LOVING it! The first time was more painful than exciting, yet still very fun and now the second time it's just plain fun and a great workout. I felt amazing after. The instructor went into the back and came back with a berry smoothie for me for free... I didn't want to make him feel bad so I had it. It was really good and he puts whey protein in it. I had already brought a RTD though so I had both. OOPS! Oh well. I'll be going both times they hold the class per week along with my normal workouts. On those days I won't do my strength circuits.
I'm following a pretty intense workout plan that involves a quick 20-30 min run or jog in the AM and then a strength circuit at any point during the day. It alternates between full body, lower body and upper body. I do it in the evenings after work. Normally I eat dinner before and then have my bar after the workout. I can tell that i'm going to stick with the workouts though.. I can feel myself getting firmer and more toned already! And I feel so energized the rest of the day.

Have you tried the Pure Protein bars? The peanut butter bar is Awesome. It is smaller than a candy bar but tastes just as good to me.

Dakin awesome news on the dress and the munkin noticing your weight loss over munchkins is priceless. Thanks for the sweet complement.

I'm gonna try that evening thing... I have always done what exercise I can first thing in the morning because after a long day of work, or whatever, I can make excuses to not do it. But I am crazy craving and woozy late morning. Is it better to do it before dinner or after?

These sound great! But, doesn't the baking Splenda have sugar in it? I haven't bought it yet.

Congratulations Teden. I know you were pretty stressed about this. And you passed by 9 lbs! Terrific.

******

It's been a very busy day, and I've not been able to check in earlier. I've been preoccupied with getting my container gardening in process... buying and amending the soil, etc., etc., and doing some planting, etc.,...as I took this day off (I arrange my own work schedule) to garden, I wanted to get as much done as possible. My 'busy-ness' has meant I have had little time to think about food, but I have eaten on protocol 100%. Just drinking some more water now to get up to where I should be by this point in the day.

I'm pooped (pleasantly so though) and think I'm going to enjoy a good soak in a bubble bath as a treat... my back didn't really appreciate all that lifting, bending, etc. today.

Cheers to everyone. Have a good evening.

P.S. WI # 7 tomorrow. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that having no bars for the past few days will help get my # up a bit.

There is no feedback, empathy, comprehension or explaining at my WI. If the food is 100% markup, sadly, this explains why some "coaches" are selling it. Sorry for being negative, but this is the truth in my experience.
Now I will go to the newbie tips and browse through to see what I can learn.
You need to contact IP through the website and let them know which clinic you go too. Let them know how you are treated and such. Ask them about the fee, I know at my clinic you do not have to pay for it a second time if you switch. Where in La are you?

Congrats on a job well done. That is less stress on you now I know that for sure. The military always has had some crazy Weight limits but I am glad you passed with flying colors!!

How long are everyones coaches wanting them on P1? I thought it was until 80 OR 90% of your weight was lost. Do we get to decide on which %? I asked my coach yesterday and she said 90%, but I am feeling like I want to save some money and move to P2 at 80%. Is it up to me? I know ultimately it is, I could quit and do it on my own and since I am moving out of state I probably will, but do you think she should give me info on the other phases before I move?? I paid for a lifetime of coaching they said, but obviously an 8+ hr dive every week is not happening and I will probably have to pay another office consultation fee if I go somewhere else? Who knows, I read that the mark-up on this food is 100% and that makes me sad!! I understand marking it up to make money, but that much is showing me that the doctors are more interested in the $ than my health. I am hoping that I can get a handle on everything myself and do an alternative plan in a couple of months. I am so thankful for this website!!
You can find all of the different phases in the Sticky's. There are lots of people here who do it on their own and come here for support, encouraging words, advice and what have you. You are NEVER alone, you are part of an extended family here no matter where you are and if you are doing IP products or alternatives. We all will chip in and help you out, all you have to do it ask, be accountable in the daily threads if you want or ask someone to be your "coach" so that you can report to them. I have a few people that message me or email me with their weekly WI's. YOU CAN DO THIS...there is a ton of information here that is for sure.

Hey y'all, I "dressed" up today to go to work. Usually its just a polo shirt and black slacks, well today I put on a nice top, that is the ONLY thing I changed and everyone was WOW'ing me....it was quiet funny but I was loving every minute of it. Passengers who fly on our flights on a regular basis that I haven't seen in a while were in awe. It was nice to see them and they were so proud of me. Its good to have connections all over, this group came from St Petersburg FL and some say they are going to look into the program there. So you never know when you may help change someone's life for the better....Gotta LOVE IP!

Hi all,

Just finished reading today's posts. Lots of good news. Helps some to cheer me up.

My day at work was HORRIBLE. I'm totally convinced that stress will make you starved. I'm always hungry at work in the mornings. No matter what I have (shake, oatmeal, bar, etc.). I can eat the same at home on the weekends and never be hungry. But, with today, and all the stress, I was starved all day.

Anyway, I can sum up my day with comedian Ron White's quote, "you can't fix stupid."

To help, I was hoping for some quality time with DH since this is his day off. But, he was asleep when I got home at 5:30 and now it's not even dark outside yet, 8:20, and he's gone back to bed. Sort of the "icing on the cake" for today.

Thanks for letting me vent. Normally, by now I would have eaten 5 lbs of chocolate and then come home and eaten a whole pizza. Thank goodness for IP.

Maybe I'll just go to bed myself. But, not until after my rhubarb crisp.
Molly

Thanks, Wuv,

I had lots of water today, but nothing seemed to help.

Yep, get to do it all over tomorrow. Don't know about better. I left an email in my inbox to address tomorrow first thing. Someone doing it "their way" and not thinking about how it affects the other guy. Spent two hours earlier helping the other guy and analyzing what got them there and how to fix it. Now, tomorrow, I'll spend forever convincing this person they are affecting others and need to change. Doesn't seem like they care. It's just the "it's all about me" attitude.

Guess I need to get offline and stop venting. Even the rhubarb crisp isn't doing the trick.

Love you all,
Thanks, Molly
