To everyone that this applies to: congratulations on being such a good example to your son, woderful to share in his victory: Alaska cruise sounds wonderful, just remember that all the decadent desserts they have all taste the same and are not worth it; Woohoo on getting the interview and going in cofident; Who woulda' thought this spring that you would start the summer 90 lbs lighter?; and good job for you following your dreams and going for the degree.

Sorry I lost all the quotes and missed all the names here. I'll hope for better luck tomorrow.

I wanted to share my "lifesaver" for the past couple of weeks.

On my way home from weigh in I go to the grocery and buy all my produce for the week. When i get home I get my HUGE tupperware bowl (it holds 2 gallons). Then I turn on a fun show and sit infront of the tv slicing and dicing all the select vegies I like in a salad (except the lettuce). I make at least a gallon of chopped cukes, zuchinni, broccoli, peppers, cauliflower, red onion, celery, etc. I mix it up, put the lid on, and store in the fridge.

Luncheon salads are Easy Peasy now. I just layer my lettuce in a tupperware top with 2 cups of the vegie mix and put in a single serve packet of WF dressing. Takes 1 minute tops.

My experience is that the mixed veg lasts about 8-10 days before getting wilty and it is so nice to have it all prepared.
That's a great idea. Thx.

I decided last week that after losing slowly since my first week, that I would cut out restricted items. I LOVE having my cookies and cream bar every night...... So I found an alternative snack.....I make the chocolate pudding into an ice cream type dessert. I will save my bars for Week. Anywho......unofficially I am down 4 pounds since Monday's wi. Sweeeet! Also....nsv.....I'm wearing jeans that I was squeezing into like a sausage casing in January and haven't worn since. And they fit perfectly!! Yippeeeeeeeeeeee!

I truly love this protocol! I've learned how to truly eat well.....educated my df and dd on eating well, and we ALL get in the kitchen and cook. My 6 year old dd gets upset when I don't pack her fruit or veggies in her lunch....she wants healthy food too!
That's a great NSR, fitting into those jeans! And it's great that your whole family is getting into these new healthier habits together.

Good afternoon fellow losers and have a great OP day! Congrats on the losses and all the NSVs, every step counts
Size 9 - Now that's a great NSR! I'm looking forward to that day... have a few pairs of size 9 slacks/jeans waiting in my closet.

My husband had back surgery last week, so he is home with me for the rest of the month. We are having a good time with all of us home (we have a 5 year old and a 2 year old).

I have a ton to do today. I have a doctors appointment this afternoon, I need to go to the grocery, I need to switch my LA license to a TX license, and I need to sign up to take 2 tests for my Texas teaching certificate....ughhh too much to do today

I hope everyone has a great day today!
Sorry about your hubby's surgery. I hope his convalescense is a speedy one.
Hope you were able to accomplish all that you wanted today without wearing yourself out.

Welcome MiamiCajun. Glad you found IP and the 3fatchicks forum. I recall being so worried about the number of times I had to stop and pee during my first week, that I was afraid to go anywhere! I was so relieved when I realized that my nearby supermarket had a public washroom I could use... by doing that, I knew I could (safely) get back home again without a pee-problem!! I certainly got to know where all the washrooms were in the various places I had to frequent that first week. LOL. Still comes in useful some days.....

I decided that I want to get done with them and if I feel I want to lose more I will do it on my own since I have learned so much from this forum and all the great helpful participants!
You are looking fantastic! Congrats on being so close to your goal.

So glad you found a new clinic and coach, and feel re-energized about things. From what I've read on here there is a hugh difference in them. Glad you found one that you truly feel good with.

One of the things that frustrated me right away was when I ate the herb and cheese omelette and promptly puked it up. It was just awful and I've been extremely wary of trying any of the other packets since then. I've been drinking the premixes and having a restricted snack at the end of the day. My husband is amazing and has appointed himself my personal chef and has been making me great dinners that are all on plan. But, I know that I should be trying the packets to give myself some variety and I've got that omelette experience very much at the front of my brain. I spoke to our IP coach here and she said that was probably a result of "fat mouth" and to try try again. I guess I'll do that!
I wasn't a big fan of the IP omellettes. (I switched over to alternative products fairly early on for $ reasons). Didn't puke them up, but they would have never been a big repeat item with me. But some of the items are quite tasty, and even those that aren't your 'favorites' can certainly be 'doctored' in a variety of ways. Lots of things to try - be brave.

I am still going to be OP having seen so many of your comments in other threads about just doing the program, but is there anything else I should be doing?
Just stay with the program 100%. And if you know it's going to upset you if you do find a 0 or low loss - definitely stay off the scales. It just creates extra stress that you don't need. In fact stress creates cortisol, which only contributes to more difficulties in losing the pounds. So unless you can be really laidback with WHATEVER the scale tells you - don't get on it.

Oh my gosh, congrats to all the big losers! Way too many to keep track of, which I like! Just checking in really quickly - busy day at work - to say hi. TOM is here but staying OP 100%. Is it Friday yet? This has been a long week!

Darralyn - good luck on your weigh in!

Cadu - congrats to your son!

mtnsun4 - enjoy the cruise - we did an alaskan cruise a few years ago and LOVED it. kaypix - our cruise to Alaska was on the NCL Sun. I've cruised many times on NCL and enjoyed all their ships.

Since I'm here and I'm new, I have some questions. I pay $4.42 per packet through our local office. The premixes are over thirty bucks for six. Is this typical? It seems really really exorbitant to me. I bought the EAS lo carb shakes when I ran out last weekend and the coach was mortified when I told her that. I compared everything, and it seemed exact, so I have no idea what the problem was. I really do like the idea of ketosis, and training my body to lose weight, but I am really stuck on how much it relies on their products. I guess I don't have more of a question than the money, but it does strike me as a little odd. Thanks for reading and listening! The only person I have to bounce this stuff off of is my husband and he knows only as much as I do!

Thanks evepet. I am not getting on the scale at all until Monday. I will drive myself crazy otherwise.

I think the average is $4 a packet. My boxes are $29 and my fiance goes to a nearby center which is about $1-2 less per box. I've read stories about how certain coaches have been upset about alternatives and this site. Therefore, the only alternative I have used is the EAS shakes so far and I just don't tell them. So far so good. I know each center is different...like I need to log my food and have it reviewed each week but the other center nearby you don't. Your coach might just be a 100% stickler for 100% IP...you'll have to guage it.

My coach said we can do anything as long as we are not winded, you should be able to carry on a conversation while exercising.

Hi all! Super quick check in. So much amazing news in here today I can't even begin to comment on it all but I'm grinning from ear to ear for all the good news. I will say this just quickly though - usmcvet, fanfreakintastic!!! So close to 100lbs. Just amazing! And cadu, I'm over the moon happy for your son. Amazing what feeling good about ourselves can help us accomplish, eh?

My quick NSV for today - I realized that I no longer have to turn sideways to go through the subway turnstyles. Have had to do so all my life - NO MORE!!!! Insanely exciting.

Bdmom,

I am a scale addict and had to have my husband hide the scale so that I could only weigh in once a week with my coach at the office. The scale can make or break my day depending on what it says. I didn't want it to have that power over me anymore. Now I get to be pleasantly surprised once a week! Just trust the program and it will work. You are doing great!

Last night I tried something new. I got a low carb wheat tortilla (2 net carbs), spread both sides with butter flavor Pam (no carbs), heated one side then flipped it, spread a mixture of splenda and cinnamon on it (trace carbs) and added a teaspoon of Polaner sugar free/fiber grape jelly (2 carbs). I rolled it up and it was great. A fantastic warm snack for a little over 4 carbs. I had two of these instead of a bar. It was filling and and satisfying.
