Its been a while since I posted but I have been lurking when I get the chance. Weight loss has tremendously slowed down for me (been having "C" issues). My coach recommended Miralax which I picked up yesterday so hope that helps.I also notice that walking on the treadmill helps with the "C". I've been in a rut lately wanting to go out for once and eat like normal folks. I get sick of having to think what would be IP approved on the menu. I know that since I havent been on the boards that much I have missed my daily dose of motivation. To me when I first started I was so focused and now its like I cant wait until I complete P1 and get to try something different. Friday I went to the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans and they had a bunch of crap for food choices. I ended up with the buffalo chicken nuggets which was disgusting. It wasnt even worth eating. Needless to say I didn't peel the skin off cause that would have been an art in itself.

However, I do have a NSV to share: I was tired of going to the expensive "Lane Bryant" store and trying to create an outfit. Well I marched to JCPenny and found 2 pair of denim capris, size 16, go me. Plus the amount I paid for 2 pair was less than what I would have paid at Lane Bryant for 1 pair. They get on my nerves thinking all big women have to go there so they jack up their prices. Oh and today the capris are getting roomy so hopefully I will need a sz 14 soon. Other than that I am hanging in there.

My other issue: I will have to switch to alternatives in August because I will have exhausted my IP budget. I am a little frustrated because I feel I should have lost more weight using the real "IP" products so I am in fear what will happen when I make the switch. I dont know if anyone has had to switch on here but I was thinking I need to get a jump start on researching which products are comparable nutrition wise before that time comes.

Good luck to everyone and I will try to make an effort to at least read some of the posts daily.
Congratulations on going down in size!!

My dad just had that surgery in both his hands last year (one at a time too...since you need a wiping hand, as he told me). He is pain free...at least in his hands! Have a great Sunday and quick recovery!

I've needed it for ten years but just got sick of it this year. I was also scared off when my doctor said to do both at once. Wen he left I spoke to his PA and said how will I wipe my a*s! He said to only do one at a time.

SOOOO I am a left handed wiper, I have torn my right rotator cuff twice and I just don't have the reach! I bought a Comfort Reach to help me out!

I am sure she is floating around somewhere maybe she will find you before your WI. Your pattern seems to be really good 5lbs then 2lbs a week those are some pretty awesome WI's for sure. Don't be disappointed if your weightloss decreases, you will have those weeks so you just need to remember keep your eye on the prize

I went to the movies yesterday for the first time on IP. I actually went to 2 movies. The first one was right after lunch. Thankfully, the movie was really good and I was full so I ignored the popcorn smell and drank my water. The second movie was at 5 PM and I brought my SW cheese puffs and a bottle of cold water. They are so spicy and good that I was fine. Enjoyed the popcorn smell vicariously.

I can understand that. I'm usually hungry for dinner, but it's hard to finish it all sometimes. I get full much easier, but I know we're supposed to eat ALL the meat and veggies, so I find myself forcing myself to eat it. Very, very strange feeling for me.

Have a great time in New Orleans. We are stopping in Galveston for a couple of beach days in early August and then driving to New Orleans for about 4 days ourselves.

I just absolutely LOVE Genghis. I started eating there a year or so ago when I'd visit my BF in Dallas. I haven't been since I started the diet because the sauces scared me off, but I'm thinking I may have that for lunch today If not I'll def have it one night for dinner before I leave town. Thanks for reminding me!

Dana - thank you and enjoy your trip as well!! This will be my first time in N.O. as an adult (I was 14 last time) so I'm excited to experience it on a different level. Have fun in Galveston also! I hear it's relaxing.

So I don't know if my scale is lying to me or not but I weighed myself yesterday and it was 199lbs and this morning it said 190lbs! How is that possible????
