7 pounds is great!! Keep it up! You are doing well.

As for the wanting to binge, hang in there. I was really hungry the first couple weeks, craving cookies and brownies that my kids were baking in the kitchen. Hadn't really noticed a change but yesterday, at Six Flags, my boys got ice cream and I had absolutely no desire to have any :-) It does get better!!! I have only completed 3 weeks so your turn is just around the corner.

Morning everyone! Glad to hear everyone is doing well! Finishing up my morning coffee while gearing up for some errands.... lots to do but it keeps me busy and helps with not thinking about food.

I start phase three on Monday and I've NEVER been this excited to buy groceries. I just hope I don't get too carried away next week and try to eat things I shouldn't. I plan to stay strong so I can reward myself later!

Had a funny scenario last night at dinner.... I've avoided eating out because I've worried that even if I say "no this" or "none of that" I'll get it anyway, but I sucked it up last night and went to dinner with a friend. I requested my veggies unseasoned as they usually use sugar, and no oil or butter on anything (I also had steak). The waiter was very polite and ensured they'd be dry and seasoning free. Low and behold, the plate comes swimming in oil. I wasn't too worried - my coach has always said a little butter and/or extra oil won't hurt too much - until I took a big mouth full of my green beans and they were SO sweet. I ate probably 10, had one spear of asparagus, and decided they had to have been seasoned. I probably should've stopped sooner but I was struggling with whether or not the sweetness was just in my head, and I couldn't help but think a little "well.... I only have two days in ketosis left, is it really that bad?"

I finally sent them back (I felt SOOOO bad complaining but my friend convinced me I should get what I asked for) and the waiter acted like I was nuts. He swore up and down they'd been cooked like I asked, but when the new plate came it was so obvious the first batch was covered in seasoning. The new ones tasted so much better and there was not a drop of oil or butter to be seen.

All in all I'm glad I sent them back but now I can't get out of my mind that I may have messed up the last few days of this diet for myself.... if the only repercussions to having some sugar on the second phase is that I may have knocked myself out of ketosis, I'll live (I usually only lose 2 lbs a week so 2 days out of ketosis is about half a lb I wouldn't lose). But I keep thinking, maybe I've messed up the "awakening" process? I know I can't take it back, but sometimes I have a hard time shutting my brain off!!

Anyway, I apologize for the ramble but it helps me feel better to vent it out a little! You guys are always so supportive and it's been a blessing throughout this process.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and keep up all the hard work!

I was supposed to have my 3rd WI today at the new location, but I couldn't find it and didn't have my cell phone, so I went to Home Depot, grocery store and dropped stuff off at Goodwill. Came home to call her and she had left two messages. She had to go to another location and will be back this afternoon. Hopefully, I can find her this time because I really want to get this WI over with. I was soooo hungry when I got home from work yesterday and my brother who is visiting left a jar of dry roasted peanuts on the table. I circled the table like a cat stalking its prey. I just kept staring at that jar of peanuts. Did I mention I was sooo hungry and I love nuts. Peanuts, almonds, cashews, walnuts, you name it. This was the first time since I've been on this diet that I was starving. Maybe it was the 30 minute walk I took during lunch that brought it on. I was a slow walk, not a power walk, more like a stroll, a casual stroll. Everyone was passing me, even the elderly on oxygen. Anyway, I made dinner, roasted zucchini and mushrooms and a lemon pudding and I was still just so hungry. Needless to say, those peanuts didn't stand a chance. I had a few, then a few more and well, you know how it goes. Wish me luck at the WI!

Any experienced IP's got advice or encouragement?
Go pick up a gallon of milk and think about carrying it around all day. That is a little more than seven pounds.

Wuv, I envy you getting to see a car show. First weekend in a while DH and my schedules coincide and not a car show in sight. What's even more discouraging; none of our 11 classics are road worthy right now. DH retires in a month, so here's hoping he can get lots back on the road.

BTW, I thought I've read every daily post for the last few months, but I don't remember hearing much about your new guy. I know he's a long haul trucker and gone a lot. I don't remember you telling us about you first meeting a few weeks ago. At least, what I'm hearing now sounds really positive. Just wondering.



Read about your kitty perils last night, but had no time to post to tell you I'm so happy. Told DH about it and he just can't understand how people can be like that.

I'm sure now you will have the best weekend.


Now for me, WI this morning and had a loss, 2.6#. Thought it would be more after the big ZERO last week, but I am a tad bit short on my water in the last couple days and really L O N G on stress (Thursday was one of the worst at work). Even with the lower loss, I'm into the 220's and have lost now 62 total pounds. My scale calcs what it sees as my ultimate weight and it is now registering in the lower 160s I may have to adjust my goal. It's just been soooooooo long since I've even been under 200, that 185 seems unattainable, but we'll see in a few months.

Finally, have to tell you this funny NSV. DH has not really said anything to me about my weight loss until last night. Hope you get a laugh from this.

Our conflicting schedules don't give up much time together and so we don't get into our hot tub at the same time much, but have more in the last couple weeks. Last night he'd had a bit to drink and when we were in the hot tub, he stammered and said, "I don't know how to say this, but you don't float as much now, I don't have to hold you down like I did." Back 62 pounds ago, I could get in and would just "pop" to the surface. He would get in and have to put his legs across mine to keep me down. Now, it takes a bit more before I float towards the surface. As silly as this sounds, it made me feel good. I think he has trouble saying anything about my weight or weight loss since he's never had a weight problem (other than not being able to keep it on.) He doesn't know what to say (or not to say).

Everyone have a great OP weekend. Sunny and hot here in the South.
Molly
yeah the 220's that is goal for me. Congrats on floating less and on hubby noticing.

I really hate housework; it is so funny when I was in my 20s and 30s I loved it and now I can hardly stand it; but I have to because I have three small dogs (hair and dirty feet) so I really must do more of it than ever! As the dogs pass away; I will not replace them! Remember I said that and hold me to it!
Love you All!!
Yeah grand babies!

Last night, I had it. Dangit I wanted to sleep in my own bed next to DH and try to bake freaking cookies in the morning! (can't do that when we're in opposite rooms) I threw an empty water bottle in the cat's general direction (don't worry, the low plastic 16.9oz ones) and startled him out of the bedroom.

No loss this AM (weigh in will be Monday) but I'm holding at 169.6, so I won't complain about that. Yesterday found out (sadly enough) even with my alternative method that I really shouldn't eat at Champp's American grill...wow...the LOWEST carb options were the wings so I got those (2g/serving, had 2). But everything else started at about 40g and went up from there.

The motorcycle is nearly done, still waiting on Sweden to mail us some parts, and DH is getting REALLY antsy because of it, making life at home stressful. The house is a disaster (blamed on always working in the garage instead of being in the house after work) and I'm just about at my wit's end. Lord give me strength to make it until those stupid parts come in!

Well, i'm off to blog a bit...found out they make soda with Splenda in it now, huh, who knew right? I know the phosphoric acid is the bigger problem, but I'm going to look in to that as well and see "how bad" is bad, because some days I think I'm just going to need me a soda pop (DH stays up like 3 hours later than me, and if I want cookies I need to stay up as late as him, cuz morning cookies are hard to bake sometimes lol) so I can stay awake longer at night. Toodles all!

~Kara
Um Kara...... Ask/tell him to wake you up when he comes to bed. Or use a sexy voice and a sexy face and announce it is time for bed baby. I bet he stops what he is doing and follows you like a puppy dog!

Hey Molly, tell him that in a few more weeks you'll be able to sit on HIS lap, and he's gonna like that even more

Well, I have been back in the gym for 4 days this week and so far, so good. I have timed my restricted to 30 minutes before and added a 4th, which I have right after I am finished. I tried to take it a little easier in spin, but it is hard to do since I am so used to pushing myself. It is weird to think that exercise isn't needed to lose and may even negate what I am doing. I am trying to go lighter on my weights, again hard to do because they feel...well...light LOL! I am doing more core. Hope this is all ok. Guess we well see at WI on Monday, then again next Monday. I think it will take a couple weeks to know if this is ok.

Stayed completely 100% OP again this week and noticed all my cravings for sweets is gone. What a relief!!! I am actually really enjoying my meals, eating more slowly and savoring them. Such a change! Don't think I have ever eaten slowly, savoring bites, and had 3 meals and snack. I had such bad habits. I can see why IP is such a success. After months of eating so regiments, so scheduled, new habits will form replacing those old ones. :-)

I LOVE IP!! Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

I'm spending the weekend helping hubby get ready to go to Church camp (He's a leader). I will be staying home. Last year I went as the campcook but decided that there was no way for me to stay OP while cooking 3 meals plus 2 snacks for 6 days for 80 people.

I used to be a stay at home, home-school Mom but all the kidlets are grown and gone so the house will be quite empty while he is gone. I do extensive volunteer work from home, but I will need to make a concerted effort to get out of the house and talk to "real" people while he is gone.

Does anyone have any ideas of things I can do with my girlfriends (all as fat and sassy as me) that doesn't involve food? Tried the movie the other night but the smell of popcorn was too much and I left early (it may have had to do with SnowWhite and the Huntsmen was horrible). Unfortunately our traditions all seem to be at a table surrounded by non OP food with each of us vieing for the prize of the most decadent food offerings.

Noooo.. don't feel cheated! 7 pounds in 2 weeks is something to celebrate. I like what usmcvet said - pick up the milk jug! Don't binge - come here and write! I love that everyone here is very blunt yet supportive.

you have a great weather day for Hershey! Enjoy! My husbands step mother loves the spa there. Maybe that should be our get together - we can get chocolate spa treatments - just no tasting!

I've been avoiding the sushi places thinking it would not be good for me. Let us know how it turns out for you!

It's almost afternoon and I'm just getting here. I feel like I'm late I slept late this morning - I guess the stress of the past few weeks caught up with me! Last night the church festival was fun, even though we had to close down early due to weather. someone brought us funnel cake in our booth - didn't touch it - yay me! I went to pick up hubby at a friends party (i was DD) and got to spend some time with folks I hadn't seen in awhile. Walked past the dessert table - yay me. Did eat a couple of soft pretzel bits - boo me. But managed to stop after a couple. so-so me. all in all - pretty good compared to what I would have done pre-IP.
Today my son is off to his girlfriends graduation party. Son 2 and I are going back to the festival since the weather is perfect for it today. Other than that - I'm going produce shopping. I swear I feel like we go through veggies 10xs faster than ever before! I love it though.

Have a wonderful weekend. Keep up the great attitudes everyone.
And don't forget to add little umbrellas in those festive water cocktails!

Hello everybody!
excited to announce I have lost 8lbs on my first week of IP. Do you think it is reasonable to expect that I can lose 80lbs in 5 months time? Do you lose faster with cardio and weaight training?
Thanks!

So you don't want me to tell the skeeters to just keep on blowing into Sask???

I used to be on the look out for Saskatchewan people to ask them to catch my patio furniture on the way by, but hubby converted the deck to a solarium and that solved that problem.
Just not used to living on the prairie even after 10 years.
Have a fun weekend, it is finally feeling a bit summery here.

That would be central for me.

Seriously though, I'd love a get together.

Can you list what you ate? Coaches usually start with saying no restricted but the issue is often people not getting enough in. what did a typical day look like?

Haven't checked in here in awhile- all is going well! 81 pounds gone forever! Anyone that is getting discouraged, my advice is to stay the course...I have been on many diets and this one really works for me.

On the potty side of things, at my new job there is no running water, therefore no potty...I have to walk over to a public bathroom, which is across the Salmon River, so I have to be sure I don't have to "go" too bad or the raging of the river will make me "go" too soon! But I can't let it lessen my water drinking...that is all important.

Keep rocking the IP!

Cadu,
Is the shin dig you mention the family wedding reception you were holding?

I know I'm behind on news.

Have a great day,
