This includes a low carb lettuce wrap, turkey, cucs, tomato, extra lettuce & onion. I also had a whole dill pickle. No sauces were put on it. I hope this was ok...my coach told me that she goes there & orders that. I have a board meeting next week...and we are picking up lunch there for community members. I wanted to scope it out beforehand. Knowing how FAST they like to get your order through, I told them in advance that I wanted them to take their time with my order due to my dietary restrictions...& they were happy to do so!
Jimmy Johns is the greatest!!! It is my go to place to eat and I get the same thing. Add a pickle and you have your veggies too. Those pickles are HUGE!

Good Sunday Morning to Everyone!

Hoping for a no wind day today so we can get the roof on the barn. We have been working on this thing since Father's Day and it would be really nice to get the roof on....it was too windy yesterday and we only we able to get 2 of the 30 panels up.....arg.

Good thing is, it is keeping us busy and moving. A workout without the gym if you know what I mean!

I am also happy to report that today is the 19th day of 100% OP for me. This journey has been made so much easier by this group. THANKS EVERYONE!!!

Subway salads save my life when we're out and about and I need something safe and OP. I get the chicken one with double meat and tomatoes and cucumbers. Yum. Expensive but good. And safe!
I'm probably the one who started telling people about Subway many months ago. We take all those road trips and that my easy to do, stay 100% OP way to go for traveling. I know lots of people said they never thought about the salads only the sandwiches and the dreaded bread.

I do have concerns on using their sauces. I ONLY use their oil and vinegar. Mostly the oil is not EVOO, but once in a while is not that bad. Fat-free dressings are notoriously carb laden. Looking at their nutritional values online, the Sweet Onion Teriyaki has 9 carbs. The FF Honey Mustard 7. I think the oil and vinegar is the best best. Since they are putting it on, you can have them regulate how much. Oh, and don't forget to have them add the spinach. That helps with the veggies get close to 2 cups since you can't count all that lettuce.

Today was my WI. I think I did a better job standing on the scale as my foot is not hurting quite as much. Last week it showed this gain, but the week before was probably an unreal loss, so I'm thinking I was favoring the foot. Anyway, it's equaled out (3 wks = 7.2 lbs) and I'm almost to onderland. Give me my normal weekly 2 lb loss and I'll be there.

It's a rainy day in Georgia. Saps the ambition. Good excuse to continue resting and heal my foot.

Have a great OP Sunday, all.
Molly

Well, today I am trying my hardest to be 100%. The past week or so has been rough, I think I'm in a rut. Half is mental, so I'm really trying to push through. I've been doing such a good job and am proud of myself.

I think part of my issue is that even though I see the scale moving, I'm buying smaller clothes, and people are complimenting me....I'm having trouble seeing it and adjusting my mentality.

Not to mention I had my TOM this past week and it's making me very emotional and HUNGRY. Aside from overwhelming cravings, I am starving. Like, I could eat SO much food. I eat, then my stomach rumbles just an hour later. The other day I had FIVE packets. I was just so hungry even after extra veggies and protein, I figured it was better than grabbing something completely off plan.

Sigh. I hope this week is better. I want to get to Onederland so bad.

Hang in there. I was there last week too so this week I am drinking extra water and eating extra lettuce to make my hungries go away. It is hard to adjust mentally. Just keep going and regain your focus. You can do it!!!

I am trying not to be sad because I know we will all be reunited once again but I sure will miss him in the meantime.

My sympathies to all facing family illnesses. I am there too. Funny thing is that everyone else in my family has changed their eating habits after watching my father suffer for so long. He is the only one that won't control his eating and then complains on why bad things are happening to him. He takes no responsibility for what he puts in his mouth. It is so hard to watch.

Congratulations to all the SV and NSV posted! What a positive weekend! I feel that vibe too! I dressed up to go out for my SIL 50th Birthday yesterday. It was great to wear the clothes again that I had missed. I could even wear the jacket done up while I was sitting...It was a great feeling. I'm gonna miss that pant suit so I will probably wear it constantly until it is way to big.

NSV - Six of us went for a very nice supper. Three were on IP. I was the only one to stay 100%. Yah me!!

I am so looking forward to sweater season. Just fall though and not winter. Congrats to hgamroth for the medium sweater! What a great feeling to wear smaller clothing!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Molly - good point about the dressings. I ALWAYS get mine on the side so use waaaaaaay less than what they would normally put on which is why I'm not too concerned about an extra carb or two. And I don't like the sweet onion one so often use half of the packet of Kraft fat free italian which has 3g of carbs per 2tbsp. But yes, thanks for pointing that out! Last thing I want to do is lead someone astray!!

Just wanted to post today to mention my NSV.
We are getting ready for winter by gathering wood for the fireplace this weekend. Well I put on my "gonna get dirty" jeans and they were loose. We started gathering the wood and eventually everytime I bent over I had serious plumber butt! Had to go find a belt! They are so big that I can slip them off without undoing the button or zipper! YEAH! So excited!

Hang in there. It might get rough this first week, but then it might not. Each person is different. We're all cheering for you to do as you say, hang tough. Come here often, we'll give you the support you need to get past the rough spots. It's possible, just stick to the program 100%.
