I guess I could pack along some individual portions of protein for those nights, but I am looking for some more ideas! Thanks!!!!
Have your bbq burger (xtra lean) and use grilled portabello mushroom caps as your "bun" . Grilled steak sliced and wrapped in lettuce leaves with WF bbq sauce ..yummmm. or for late nite roasting slice steak (save an ounce or so from dinner) and skewer or thread on stick or kabob and roast on campfire pit. Use WF bbq to dip it into....... good luck...and have FUN!!!!

I have been doing my own version of IP for a little over 4 weeks, really didn't care for the taste of most of their packets except the omelet and vanilla or chocolate drinks and the cost was too much for my budget.

Anyway, it's been a little over 4 weeks and I have lost 15.5 pounds!

I tried on all of my dress slacks last night and none of them, NONE of them fit anymore! YIKES! Also had to add some skirts to the pile...I am waiting to shop for dress slacks until closer to the start of school in the fall to see where I am at.

I am already under my goal that I had though I wanted to get to and thinking I will keep at it and see if I can get down about 8 more pounds. I have never been able to lose weight like this and I started IP because I needed to lose the 8-10 pounds I had been yo-yo'ing for the past 2-3 years. In the past I have always gone back to WW and points eating but always hit a plateau with that.

I am sort of amazed how easy it is to do the protein and low carbs eating. I am so much more aware of what I am and am not eating as well.

I had to travel for work last week and I stayed IP fairly easily, just made good choices from what was being served on the buffet. We ate out each evening and I was able to get steamed broccoli with either steak or chicken and brought some WF dressing packets and also some bars just in case I needed them. I also picked up some 100 calorie packets of almonds which I would have when everyone else was having the chocolate snacks.

I plan to try to continue to eat protein and low carb until I am where I can get and see how it goes.

Good morning IPers. So far a beautiful morning.

On our way home. Car chase was a dead end. The car was junk. I so hate when people grossly misrepresent what they have when you're driving 500+ miles to make a deal. This is not our first time this has happened, but our longest trip doing it.

Here's a great laugh. I had a pudding pack to have for my snack last night. We were in the motel room. No spoon, fork, only a stirrer from the coffee machine in the room. Okay, so it stirs the pudding, but eat with it. LOL. It did work. Not very fast, but then that can be advantage as you draw out and enjoy your snack more.

Have a great day. We'll be on the road all day.

I think that my small weight loss was caused by having all of my meals at once.
I'd definitely say that eating ALL your food at one point during the day could slow down the loss. If I forget to eat my 3rd packet during the day my weight slows down as well. Try to "make" time between that breakfast and 3:00PM for at least a RTD or a bar, esp if you only eat again once during the night.

I know your pain when it comes to dogs, we have 2, and they firmly believe in NOT sleeping in it seems!

Now for TMI, still constipated every week and when I take the Novi Lax it kills my stomach so only taking 2 a week. Doing great losing but wondering if I could be losing more if I find something more natural to help things move daily. Any opinions or advice would be great. My coach is checking with the doctor they are connected with and hopefully he will have a few suggestions.
I use more EVOO than recommended, closer to a tablespoon a day, and I'm "regular" to the point that I have my shake every morning at 08:45, and at 9:15 I'm in the bathroom and then not again until the next morning. I could dang near set a clock by it.

Although it seems like little I haven't been able to lose any past few months After every 10 pounds I lose I'm buying a pandora charm...im getting closer than i thought!
Great job! I'm doing a charm bracelet as well, one charm per 5 pounds (it's not Pandora, but it's mine )

I get my next charm at 20 pounds, which will be 174.8 (started 194.8) and is only a bare 1.2 pounds from where I am this morning, although I weigh in tomorrow and don't see me losing 1.2 pounds in a day, but hey, who knows right?

Great job with the loss!! I'm still not to 10% loss yet, but I'll get there someday...hopefully in the next week or two.

I think the idea is to not drink milk or have dairy in general. It's not just the sugar, milk and cheeses are usually notoriously high in fat (think ATKINS, you can have dairy on that right? But ATKINS allowed higher fat content than IP does). Also, here's the nutritional breakdown from Lactaid,a popular lactose free milk:
LACTAID FIT & CREAMY™ Lowfat Milk
Serving Size 1cup (240mL)
Serving Per Container 8
Amount Per Serving
Calories 120 Calories From Fat 20
% Daily Value*
Total Fat 2.5g 4%
Saturated Fat 1.5g 8%
Trans Fat 0g
Cholesterol 15mg 5%
Sodium 120mg 5%
Potassium 420mg 12%
Total Carbohydrate 12g 4%
Dietary Fiber 0g 0%
Sugars 12g
Protein 10g 20%
Vitamin A 10% • Vitamin C 0%
Calcium 35% • Iron 0%
Riboflavin 25% • Vitamin D 25%
Vitamin B12 25% • Phosphorus 30%
This product has 2.5g fat, regular whole milk has 8g fat per serving.
Ingredients:
ultra-filtered lowfat milk, lactase enzyme*, vitamin A palmitate and vitamin D3
*Ingredient not in regular milk.

So it still has 12g of sugar in a serving, along with 12g of carbs. It is BETTER than regular milk, but still bad.

I noticed we are similar "stats" , how does it feel being down to nearly goal? I still have about 40 pounds to go, but have this irrational fear that if , no, WHEN I get to goal I won't recognize myself.

Hot pepper = favorite!!! I probably use that almost as much as regular EVOO.

I'm a once a day, every day, at 9:30AM or so. I noticed that walking a bit every day seemed to help with that too.

Happy Sunday everyone - up and at 'em - slowly.

I'm a little lazy this morning. Feel like I could fall back to sleep - I need to get up and move it, move it.

Have a wonderful OP day everyone!!

Good morning IP Friends!
Today I get to play with the grandkids which is so much more fun when you are 50 lbs lighter. I lost 30 lbs before starting IP and almost 20 on IP. It is so great to feel somewhat normal now! We are all going to church then on a play date with a friends grandson. It should be fun; I will probably take a bar and have a salad with my WF dressing (no protien) for lunch. I have been doing the morning chocolate drink with the spinach, YUM! I hope the weather holds out; it looks a little iffy.
It is great to read of everyones thoughts and successes and I wish I had more experience to jump in and advise but I still feel like such a newbie even after almost two months.
This is such a wonderful group! Love and appreciate each and everyone of you!!
Have a wonderful OP day!!

Well, I'm awake, and it's beautiful outside, which means my sunburn is gonna HURT like a mo-fo today I now learned why sunscreen has an expiration date ow ow ow ow ow I hate being fair skinned grrrrrr!

NSV - my sister in law (much heavier than me) is now considering IP after trying a few of my alternative products. Also, she gave me a pair of old pants she wore forever ago, that were size 12 dickies, and I could put them on! No problem at all except a bit of a shuffle around the muffin-top. But still, that means I'm officially, comfortably, in size 12!

As of this morning I am 0.2 pounds lighter than when I paid a personal trainer to "whip me into shape"...that only cost like $1200 for nothing >.< ...

I have a few errands to run and am REALLY not feeling the garage sale today, haven't even STARTED setting up, and thinking I really need a day to chill. I'll be having it again next weekend though so I hope to get stuff for then.

And apparently DH needs the garage open, so that means I'll be doing my sale, anyways...*Sigh*.

Hey everyone! Guess who's bacccckkkkkkk?!
Had my breakfast shake already, got my first set of vitamins in & now working on my water. SO far so good! I know if I can just get through the first week then I'll be good to go! I've done the first week before, so I know I can do it again.

Finally in the right place to start back been gone almost TWO months! holy crap.

Liz, I'm glad I gave you a mental vision cuckle. I understand about being lazy. No worries. Just PM me the shipping costs.

Darralyn, I'm glad I also made you smile. DH and I always have fun together on our wingnutandme road trips. That's where this came from. After some crazy adventures, I came home one day to find a drawing of a wingnut character. Chris considers himself a wingnut.

Do hope we continue on okay. The car really, really needs tires. Wasn't going to get them if we were trading it off. Now, after 1000+ miles this weekend, no choice.

Everyone keep OP and have a nice Sunday.
Molly

Btw...bought some wf strawberry stuff..what should i do with it? Recipes anyone?
Strawberry goes really well with rhubarb. Just cook the rhubarb (I microwave for 3-4 mins) and then mix in some strawberry sauce or jam. Use it for the upside down cake, pancake topping, etc. or I just eat it as is.

Recommended normal is once a day. I used to do that but now with IP it is every 2-3 days and I find it uncomfortable. I'm trying various things but Dieter's tea works well and I use Cleanse Smart which is a herbal softener occassionally.
