redmom:. I am in Sioux Falls and we take I90 to Blue Earth or Wyndom then head North from there. We are actually staying in Mayer which is a cute, sleepy little town about 30 miles from Minneapolis.

Just checking in, taking a night off the bike building, which feels really good for a change in speed. Well I'm off to do anything not motorcycle related, night all and see you tomorrow! Oh and whoever was talking about a get together, I'd totally go, even if it was in Canadia!

Kaypix - I am in SF about every week. I knew you were in SD but didn't know it was SF. I grew up there, and now live about 2 hrs away near Huron. My mom is selling her house so I have been helping her move and all that fun stuff. I always thought you looked familiar. I've probably seen you around!

Quick question. I keep forgetting to take my supplements at supper time and sometimes take all 4 cal mags within an hour of eachother. Is this ok? It is better than skipping them, right?

Congratulations on you'd loss, that's great. I was thinking about NovaScents,
I haven't seen her on the boards lately. I hope she didn't fall off the wagon.

I was thinking the same thing about Mamacita.

Here's a shout out to old friends: You are missed!

My WI was today: down 2 pounds. I am happy, but it sure seems like onederland is being elusive. 8 more pounds. I reallllllllly want to speed them along, but I'm on plan, so I don't know what more to do. My coach suggested increasing to 4 packets and walking, so I am going to have to try to figure out a time to work that in my schedule.

I know it seems contradictory but I think it must've been a welcome shock to my system or something. I use soy all the time, butter is just a little extra fat, and I'm sure terryaki isn't too bad.

Just had my first Phase 3 breakfast and man am I happy! Two pieces of toast, greek yogurt with raspberry puree, turkey sausage patties, and frozen fruit! I'm feeling good If I can eat this way for the next two weeks, I don't doubt I can finish up this diet strong!
Thank you, I know that I should KNOW that, but when you are having symptoms you get scared. Thanks again... headache still hasnt cleared up, it must be my sinuses.

IP is easy for me when I go to Casper on my monthly trip, and I leave on Saturday night, so next week will be easy. These next 2 weeks will be easy to "keep my eye on the prize".
I have been struggling lately as well, I think it is because I am getting so close to goal. Maybe we could help eachother with this. I imagine we live pretty close, we could call and chat about what we are struggling with and help eachother make a game plan. PM me if you are interested.

Happy with the loss! I am down a bit in muscle, but I was sick over the weekend, and I think that may have affected the muscle. I had a hard time eating anything.
But I am feeling better and happy to be 100%!
Your doing great! Those numbers are really good

Well, I haven't been on the site for a few days as I've been very busy. I am not a happy person right now. I know that I've been as close to plan as possible, with the only exceptions are having 2 restricteds in one day as opposed to 1. My supply is dwindling and I don't go to my clinic until Wednesday and that is why I am having 2 restricteds. On that note, I feel like this past week has been a waste of time. I think I may have lost all of 1 pound so far this week with 2 days before my next WI. I don't feel any skinnier than I did last Wednesday, and with 3 weeks of holidays coming up, I wanted to be near the 200 lb mark by the time we go. Right now, I doubt I will be there, and it's definitely bothering me. Just getting back on this site today has definitely helped my mood, as I am ready to be done Phase 1. I think getting back to a normal routine will help me the next couple of weeks.

Now time to get back to reading some more posts, as that definitely keeps me motivated. Have a great day everyone, and best of luck to everyone!
Just keep coming back to this site and reading the posts, it will help

Anyway, today went well.. i go back tomorrow (for weigh in) and to train some more. I should be done training in the next two weeks. Well, i'm off to my husband's appointment with the specialist he sees.. i'll be catching up on posts on the hour drive.. Have a great OP day everyone!
Im so excited for you!! You are awesome, you will probably be the best coach they have in no time!!

Well....its a nice day in Hardy...sunny out..thats a nice change from the rain...In case you dont follow Canadian News..half of BC is flooding right now from too much rain and apparently parts of Alberta as well...

Yesterday was such a bad day...i wanted to cheat so bad...In fact.. i made my hubby drive me all the way to the store for me to walk in the store and walk around the store and all through the isles and during my walk all the way around the store..i convinced myself.."Its just not worth it..." and so i walked out of the store with nothing...Then i proceeded to go home and eat my chicken like a good girl...Needless to say i was impressed with myself and so was DH...I dont think i ever walked in a store and out of a store without buying something... I realized it was just my sore feelings that was making me want to eat...

Anywho...its all good.. Well gotta run and go drink some more water..tummy is gurgling at me.
I am SOOO proud of you!!!

I have to make this work. I figured connected with like-minded individuals would be a step in the right direction

Hi Jenni, that was an awesome WI!!! Welcome to the board

I would say that it is better than not taking them at all. I do this sometimes too and it hasnt affect my weight loss yet.

Congrats on you WI! If you get break time at work you could walk during those. I get two breaks throughout the day and I use them to walk. I also use my lunch to walk if it is a busy day and I might not get a break.
Her idea to increase your intake is good. I hope it works out for you

The headache that started yesterday still hasnt gone away completely. Other than that my day has gone by really fast for a Monday, must be because I was so busy!
My son turned 11 today, my little man is growing up!!

My daughter turns 13 on July 27, she is growing up toooooo fast.

I found a new app that you can get for your phone that is pretty funny!! Just go to Prankdial.com Oh man did we have fun with that one!! It calls the person you want using a fake phone number and then plays a recording that is meant to sound like someone having a conversation with you. Totally fooled my DF with it, he wont live that one down anytime soon.

Lately I have been struggling with knowing how close I am to P2... Has anyone else been there? Knowing that is going to be happening soon and then struggling with crazy cravings because of it. Some of the cravings could be from TOM though... UGH!

Happy Birthday to your son! My daughter turned 10 yesterday. It was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooo hard not to eat cake and the candy from all the goody bags. Then we had a sleepover and they had a cupcake design contest. I ate my strawberry wafers and said a prayer!! Today at the movies, part 2 of the sleepover, I had too bring two restricted items to prevent me from eating popcorn and candy! I made sure to stay under 25 grams with the packets. One chocolate puffs and the other was garlic and onion soy nuts. I was able to stretch those two packets till the end of the movie! Then I just had an orange drink as a snack. I hope having two restricted items while keeping under the 25 is okay. Or am a tempting the scales to go in the other direction. Hmmm. I don't know if the cravings ever go aways. But don't succumb to them. You have done so well!!

Yes the cake was hard to get by, but I did it!!! I even picked up fresh made pizza for everyone else to have at dinner. I rode all the way home with all the windows rolled down, thank goodness it wasnt raining!!! hahaha I have to make a cake for his birthday party with all of his friends for this weekend... Not really looking forward to that, but I have always made thier cakes and when I even suggest buying one they get all upset. sigh. Last year he wanted a yellow cake with cool whip and strawberry layer in the middle with a skull and 'blood' for decorations. lol

I think having two restricteds was the smart thing to do, after all it is better to have another IP product than candy! I just wouldnt make a habit of it. You are doing great, just keep coming back here for inspiration and encouragement.

I have no idea if the cravings will ever go away, but I am over two months in now and I still get cravings and urges. For all of those lucky enough to have them go away... more power to ya!
