I have committed to following a daily challenge...for lack of a better word...for Lent. Day 8 (today) is No Complaining Day.

So in light of that...yay! The WI scale says I lost 0.5 lbs this week (even though home scale says 3 lbs)! Woohoo! I am so excited to spend another week in the 200s!

Cauliflower- Rice it up. Add your milk for the day (plus water if needed- or just water if you dont want to use your milk!) and microwave it. Add Cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, Splenda or Stevia, maybe some vanilla or maple extract or WF maple syrup- depending on how I feel. Maybe a little dash of a peanut butter protein powder mix (taken out of a daily packet- an alternative-non IP). or add some WF jam.. yumm. or some pumpkin spice. I warm it up- then 'dress' it up. I typically use frozen cauliflower- microwave it to thaw add stuff then grind in my food processor- but you could rice fresh cauliflower and freeze it too or prepare and eat then-The frozen is faster for me. And I like the grind texture better than the riced.
I get good veggies in this way! I do this with my oatmeal too. Just remember to stay true to plan.
There are some good recipes for roasting, I imagine that you can do an oil, cinnamon\nutmeg\ground clove- stevia coating and roast away.. I sometimes look at Pinterest and adapt things.. There are some good recipes for roasting chick peas- which we cant have in Phase 1.. but you could adapt them to cauliflower and replace any non phase 1 items with phase 1 items. Like stevia for sugar etc.
Don't forget your extracts.. Sometimes adding a little coconut extract to my curry spices is wonderful! Or cherry to my chocolate pudding etc.

A "dinner" serving of eggs is 4 whole eggs plus 2 eggs whites.
So I'd say a bit less than half?
Somebody better at math than me can figure it out!

That's hysterical!!

I needed that.

Love the cauliflower ideas..it's amazing how versatile it is. Personally, I think it is the answer to constipation issues-just saying.

It is a good problem to have! I always thought it would be so much easier to find clothes in my size when I got thinner, but it isn't. The good news is I'm not disgusted with what I see in the fitting room mirror anymore.

Thanks for all the info, on my fourth week. Down 10 pounds, Have PCOS and Hypotyroidism, so extremely happy with weight loss. Still feeling incredibily hungry though. My collegues at work laugh as I am always chewing on a leaf of romaine lettuce. My hunger is always around 10 am and 3 p.m.
My only drawback is the many bathroom stops at night. Already had problems sleeping because of menopause, so this is making is so much harder, even though I stop drinking around 7ish.
Still lost more weight in three weeks than I did in 6 months working out 5 times a week with a personal trainer ( whom I adore). Will have to check out pinterest.

I have PCOS and hypothyroidism too and am still hungry for most of the day.

I am so excited about starting this diet. Reading the posts here and looking at your stats, gives me so much incentive. You are all real people, with the same problem. I get skeptical reading testimonies on product sites...so this is awesome. I probably won't even be able to sleep tonight.

Welcome!!! You will do awesome. I too was skeptical. Many of us that have tried 'everything' were. Your first week will be the hardest, but in terms of weightloss the best! Then you are hooked (with good reason!). Come here often for great support! It really is such a great place, and this diet is so awesome. When you get time search Wuv on here- Or the maintainers thread is so inspiring!!!! Its full of so many success stories- a lot in just their signatures! it's amazing!
