Good morning.....had my WI #8 yesterday. (Missed #7)...down -6 lbs....yay. Had a small bump on weekend but did pretty well considering. We had 3 bbq's to attend and hubby and i managed to eat IP and a bit of bbq's and stayed OP. I did have a Tbsp of a dessert (i think TOM got the better of me) but i'm not letting that discourage me. I also had a dental procedure yesterday morning and haven't been able to eat much except an IP drinks..vegetables were to hard to chew. Going to try again today.....but all in all....in so excited at what i've been able to accomplish in 8 short weeks!!!!! Thank you for all the support this forum offers.....you all rock!!!!! xox

Have you looked at the recipes In the top two sticky threads? Unless your on the alternate plan no cheese but a few folks have listed an IP approved cheese substitute. Not sure what it is exactly but it is called veggie cheese.

Look above in the first post by Riss and you will see a link about tickers.

UGH - I cannot get rid of my daughter's lice....what a vicious cycle. Last night I didn't eat dinner until about 830 because I was dealing with her. She's 7 and she's gotten to her breaking point, so I had to bribe her last night to try something different. I'm just about to my breaking point, too.

I should get my shipment of new IP foods today or tomorrow. I'm excited to try new things! My husband tried the White Cheddar Ridges last night, which I don't like. I'll kind of choke them down, but I won't order them again! He had one and threw them out. He said they were terrible, too!!

Have a great day everyone and have great WI's!!!!

Hi all! First time poster here, beginning my 4th day and doing ok. I cooked a pork loin at the beginning of the week so I would have some food ready to eat coming home from work in case I was starving or heat beaten. Also trying to keep my veggies changed up so I don't eat same thing every day. There are tons of fabulous tips here!!

I would like to know about measuring veggies...like the kale chips. Do you measure 2 cups before you cook them?...they sure shrivel when baked but are yummy!!

Thanks all and great weigh=ins to you

My sister in law noticed! Yay! I haven't been telling people I'm on a diet. My father and his wife come in to town on the 29th and I'm curious if they notice too.

I have WI tonight - I hope it's a good one. I'm feeling good and my pants are falling off of me.

Also, I went to my sleep doctor the other day (I now have one of those CPAP machines for sleep apnea), she said that I'm no longer morbidly obese, just plain old obese. Never thought of myself as that heavy, but I guess weighing 268 at 5'5.5" is.

Have a great OP day everyone!! Stay cool - it's gonna be a scorcher here in Connecticut!!

Great job on the WI. Just hop right back on the plan. TOM sucks. I keep a box of the caramel crunch bars on hand for when it rolls around. They're the closest thing to a chocolate candy bar that IP has to offer. One of those will usually satisfy my cravings.

Have fun!! I love to house hunt. We buy investment property every now and then, and looking is a lot of fun.

I feel for you. My daughter had it last year. It's a pain to get rid of. I picked a lot of nits out of her hair!

Measure your veggies raw, and then cook them.

Well I am unable to make it to my normal WI today so I did my WI at home this morning. I am crazy OCD so every time I WI at the clinic I then weigh myself at home to compare the scales - the numbers always seem to match up sometimes the clinic is a little lower so I think that it is a pretty accurate read. So I am down 5 pounds (maybe a little less I don't remember the oz from last week) which I am super excited about!! AND even better I am wearing pants today that previously were WAAAAAY too tight to button and they are super BAGGY on me !!!! I love IP !!!!!!

Hope everyone has a great day ... be careful in the heat if your outside and dont' forget the extra H20 !!

Man i woke up today in the most rotten mood. I haven't felt this annoyed, edgy, and just downright cruddy, since wayyy before my son was born. I am just not a nice person right now. I hate feeling this way. I am hoping it is due to TOM issues heading my way. There are other issues at play as well though. Sometimes it just feels like nothing goes right. My weigh in is today. So, I better get myself out of this funk before then! Maybe some coffee will help. Have a good day all.
