Great job!!!

Hoping for a good day today, we are taking the kids to the farm for their harvest fair - it's small so food shouldn't be a big draw (we're packing a picnic lunch) and there will be LOTS for the kids to do

We're still waiting to see what'll be happening with my MIL - she's been getting her labs drawn every day this weekend. Her liver enzymes haven't changed (which is good) BUT her bilirubin is still going up. The doc hasn't told her to come back to the hospital yet so the levels aren't critical - but she has another draw today so we'll see. I have a feeling that instead of scheduling surgery for the middle of the week, they'll have her get admitted tonight and do the surgery/scope first thing tomorrow. Hopefully by the end of this week we can put the whole thing behind us and she'll be on the mend

Had my third Thanksgiving gathering yesterday(so Friday, Saturday and Sunday)! I have stayed OP the whole way. Nice to weigh at home today and have a loss. It makes it so worth it. I still have more company coming through today.

I told my SIL(who is also on IP but rarely OP) yesterday at her feast that rhubarb is on plan and I stewed some and put in pumpkin pie spice and that it was good (until my husband voted for more spice and then we put in too much spice). Anyway, she got very excited and ran out to check her rhubarb plant to see if it was frozen yet. It wasn't frozen, so we chopped 64 cups of rhubarb last night. She wants to can it today after my company leaves. I came home thinking 'what did I get myself into?'. I am a moderation person. I froze 8 cups of my own and stewed 4 cups (which I thought was plenty) and now I am looking at 64 cups to process today! Oh boy!

Have a great day! and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in Canada!

Ragdoll74 - Great Job.

Yesterday I took my son to Dairy Queen he had a burger, fries and a blizzard. I had a water then ate my lunch when we got home.

I made the crock pot soup which was very good so I have my lunch for the next two days. Time to clean the frig and eat all those leftovers.

Hope everyone has a great Monday!

Kim

A little upset with myself this morning, was rushing to get to work so I had forgotten my IP food. So I stopped at Giant on my way in and got the EAS Carb Control drinks as a substitute. They aren't as good but they will have to do lol

Sounds like a really nice day with the kids.

Hoping everything is ok with your MIL.

That sounds like a big project! You probably aren't going to want to see another rhubarb again after today.

Good morning to the best IP support system in all of the land!!!!

Never, ever did I think I'd say these words...I'm one pound from goal. I'm on the 2nd week of phase 2.
I am scared to death.
I've been really comfortable with the structure of IP and now i'm scared to enter that big scary world which is filled with tempting goodies!
I have lived a life filled with carb addiction & closet eating. I've dieted for 35 yrs. (my highest weight was 242 lbs.). I hope I can break the cycle. I keep telling myself that I need to grow up and make responsible choices when it comes to taking care of myself. I am no longer able to get away with behaving like a spoiled child who can eat what ever she pleases.
I need to plan, plan, plan - journal my feelings & come here for support.
You guys are my lifeline, my sanity...you've kept my head up above water more times then you will ever realize. Thanks for all your love, support and inspiration

Happy Monday and Happy Thanksgiving Canada - I AM GRATEFUL!!!!

That is a lot of rhubarb- you probably won't want it again for a while.

You have this- You can do it!

Happy Monday all! Kept busy this weekend with the farm and stepped on the scale this morning to see 2.5lbs gone. I told my husband I should take over and do all the chores more often- best part was all he said was well it will get you to your goal weight faster. Love the encouragement- honestly from him this is big. Had a bit of a hard weekend in the food department though. I am due for my TOM and have been hungry constantly, but drinking lots of water and hot tea to help with it.
