I had WI last night and lost -4.2. I hadn't had a weight loss since I started (despite being 100% OP), so I was glad to see it finally arrived. I'm hoping my body starts losing more consistently even if it's just smaller amounts.

Dr tried to sell me the emailed videos last night. Thankfully, earlier I had told him I was too cheap to buy soda, so I didn't feel awkward at all when I said no way to the $10 videos. (I had a diet soda once during the week and he was worried it would become an easy crutch, but as I said, I don't typically buy it because I can't believe how much it costs for a glass or 2L)

I already have my food plan for Easter dinner, just hope I won't get tempted too much. I'm bringing a bar just in case.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Day 3 back on the plan after holidays and the headache is still pounding :(
However on the bright side I did not gain any weight during my holiday and I DID miss my new way of eating well I was away. Could not stay on plan during that time as Vegetables where few and far between. Puriefied water was also very hard to find.
Anyway so glad to be back with all of you ! Enjoy your weekend everyone :)

If you want to watch the videos go to this thread:
http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/idea...er-thread.html

Some of them have some interesting things to say but overall they're not necessary.

Have a good Easter everyone!! I'm working all weekend which is probably a good thing!! That chocolate is tempting but not tempting enough t o go off plan thats for sure! I just keep thinking "chocolate is the enemy veggies are my friends" lol

I had my WI last night and despite battling the big C all week lost 1.8 :carrot:

My middle son is home from university for Easter so I'll be spending the weekend baking and cooking a cooler full of food for him to take back with him. Knowing I'll be making cookies, pies, squares and buns for him I thought it would be best for me to have a few more restricted snack things in my cupboard incase I'm tempted. Although with this program I find I'm not tempted by anything :). The fresh buns will be (in my mind) the biggest challenge, in the past I've always had a couple with butter hot out of the oven. Maybe I'll make myself some OP muffins :carrot:

Have a great Easter everyone!

Day 2 OP and I'm feeling good ... No headache so far today and feeling energetic. It's bright and sunny and starting to feel like spring. Waiting for our daughter to arrive home to visit for the weekend. Have a great weekend everyone.

Maybe check back this evening, mine came right on the 20 day but I never checked until evening.

Congrats on the 5 lbs too!
