HAPPY BIRTHDAY Aimiloo!!! Looks like you have some yummy things to eat today! Enjoy your day!

Like I said earlier, my girls & I are taking a little trip before school starts for them. Going to a hotel with a water park! And of course going to do a little shopping! I'm still packing my ip products to take...live being prepared! Also, I think I might buy a bigger purse to carry ip back ups in (for those darn emergencies!).

Here's to wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Stay 100%OP!!!

Milk. I am the same way. But now I either have a vanilla shake for BF and add it to my coffee, or I mix up a vanilla shake very diluted and use it...keeping it in the fridge...it lasts me about 3 days this way. My coach said to not count it...I only drink 2-3 cups per day in the morning.

My house smells like APPLE PIE!! I took Scorbett's advice about trying deyhdrated jicima chips with cinamon and splenda - can't wait until they're done!

I did notice, though, that this jicima is not as sweet as the one I got last week. It is bigger. Does anyone know if size matters (with repsect to jicima)?? Any advice would help as I head off to the store later...

Weigh in #5 on Monday and feeling good about it!
Oh yummy! She definately...has some awesome recipes! Good luck on Monday...we'll be waiting to hear how you did!

All right - off the soap box. I just really want everyone to be successful! You can reallly, truly, 100% honest reach that unattainable place you never thought possible (in my case, size 1/2...lol). Don't give up on yourself!!!
So happy to hear the payoff was worth all the work you have put in! It's definitely a motivator to see the light at the end of the tunnel through others' experiences

Lizzy...I always buy the small jicama, the big ones are not as sweet and some of them end up with a hole in the middle where the texture gets a bit weird.

It is supposed to be a beautiful day in the mid 80's so I am off to the farmers market to stock up on veggies and fruit(for my kids)for the week.

Aimiloo...I hope you have a wonderful birthday!!

Good morning everyone! Today is off to a great start for me....had my FIRST weigh in! I'm down 6.6, but it looks like 7 if you round the numbers, LOL. I struggled last night with some cravings, but I hung in there. For me, I literally have to take this day by day. I'm proud of myself that I stuck with it for the first 7 days. I so badly want to lose this weight, so I just have to keep my focus in the right place. You guys have been so helpful and motivating....I'm so glad I found this forum! Hope everyone has a great weekend!!




Week 1 WI: -6.6

Not like some motel's breakfast. Home made sausage and biscuits, make your own waffles, bagels, muffins, yogurt, 3 kinds of cereal, juices. He struggles with hypoglycemia, so I'm having to make sure he eats regularily. He's the type who will just go all day without eating if he's doing things. Something I can't even comprehend.

Another on the road protein bar, RTD, Subway day. I will be glad to be at the cottage where I can prepare things for "normal" eating.

Have a great OP Saturday.

Have a safe drive. My daughter suffered terribly with hypoglycemia, and once she started to low carb it all went away. Which of course makes sense as there are no longer any big spikes with her blood sugar.

Have fun. I do miss those phase 3 breakfast for sure during my temporary vacation from IP, especially the Greek yogurt. The good news is I'll be back there eventually.

..................................................

Happy Saturday everyone. We are off to the farmers market for some healthy grass fed meats and organic veggies. Expecting some rain today, so hopefully we make it before the rain shows up.

Happy afternoon! It just hit noon here. It is a rainy, dreary, lifetime movie watching type day here in CT. WI#5 was today for another -1.8! As long as I consistently lose, I am OK being in the 1.5lb/week range. It is still much better than when I tried WW.

DH's bday was yesterday and hopefully this weather will clear up so we can do something fun in celebration tonight. He went on a fishing trip yesterday. We have a Carvel Fudgie the Whale ice cream cake in the freezer... all for him!!!

Have a great weekend!!!

Good Morning Fellow IPers!

Great week on the scale and NSV. Down another 3 lbs today.

I was also tired of the droopy butt look in my jeans. I started in a tight 18/20. The last month or two my size 16 jeans felt great out of the dryer only to get too loose as the day went on. So, i decided to go to Walmart and grab a size 14 hoping they will fit in a few weeks. Didn't have to wait...THEY FIT PERFECTLY!!!!

I cannot remember the last time I was in a size 14...probably when I was around 12 yrs old (almost 30 years ago). WOW!!! Just so excited today.

We are also going to see the in-laws tonight. Last time I saw them I was only OP for a month. Now I am 3.5 months in and 47.6 lbs down. WOO HOO!!!!

Can't wait to rock the new jeans tonight.

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and OP day!
