I ordered all my restricted products from Nashua Nutrition.

Check out the threads because I remember seeing one just dedicated to ALT products that work on Phase 1 .

I typically have their cereal for breakfast (chocolate or honey nut), four oz of protein and two cups veggies for lunch, the regular IP dinner, and a bar or pudding as a snack. I also like the chicken noodle soup from Proti-Diet, which I sometimes have for lunch. Good luck on your journey! There are tons of threads with info and many supportive people on this board. We are with you!

Thanks ladies! I did get lots of great ideas on the alternatives thread that helped me place my order and appreciate your feedback too.

Good Morning Everyone! I'm going to make this quick and as painless as possible. I was on vacation for 3 weeks, and stayed 100% OP! I was so proud of myself! Well, I got home last Sunday and.......I completely lost it! The trigger, I think, was that I hopped on the scale as soon as I got home, and after 3 weeks I had lost a grand total of 0.4 lbs. 1) I never should have gotten on that scale, I know better. 2) I had an exhausting and emotional 'vacation' and was not in an especially strong state of mind when I returned, 3) I had 'treats' in the house leftover from my nephew who was house/pet sitting while I was gone. 4) I am a food addict and it reared its ugly head and I had a relapse. My relapse lasted the whole week. I tried a few times to get back OP and the longest I made it was 1 day. I don't think I was yet in the right mindset to commit again. I think I can say that I am now because today is the first day I've felt compelled to get back on the forum and share what happened and 'publicly' recommit. I did PM someone for support (thank you for your kind, wise words, they helped tremendously), but it wasn't until today that I really felt strong enough to share with my August family, what I've been going through. I know I've disappointed myself, and I'm sorry if I've disappointed you.

Knowing how supportive everyone is, I know your first tendency will be to post encouraging words, tell me not to think of it as a failure, 0.4 is still a loss, etc. But I really want to respectfully ask that you not do that. I would feel better if I can just move ahead without any 'fanfare'. I'm actually fairly shy and reserved in "real life" and have never been comfortable with much attention being placed on me. I even hesitated posting about my lapse for that reason, but it felt deceptive to allow everyone to just assume I was still 100% as if I was not subject to the same challenges as everyone else. So having said that, I think I will feel better knowing I have the silent, unspoken understanding from all of you that "there but for the grace of God....".

Moving forward now.....I am looking ahead, and will not dwell on the past. As of today I am back 100% OP and I am excited about it! TODAY I am committing again to IP and plan to follow it to the letter!

Onward and downward, Augusters! NO DROPOUTS (just a few of us 'remedial' students :) Thanks for being there everyone!! :hug:

So many GREAT achievements fellow Augusters!! You are all so inspiring!! And I am feeling strong and committed and know the bump in the road was only that, a speedbump reminding me to be cautious......not a roadblock keeping me from moving on!

It feels so good to be back with all of you! Clarington, thanks for the offer to kick my butt :) I promise I'll do the same for you :devil:

Have a wonderful day everyone! :hug:

Well after missing 2 WI's at clinic, I was down 8.25 lbs and 5 more inches. Plan was to get official WI to start IP down 20 by Christmas. Thought I would start ALT products but felt guilty and bought vitamins and packets. Was taken back when she had wrong file and had to ask me my name again. So I am just going try mixing it up by using IP packets and alts. I know it will work.
Here's to having a great week for everyone. Could not do this without this forum.

slownsteady 11-06-2013 09:46 AM

Good Morning! A quick check in to keep me honest, then off to work! Got through Day 2 of my 'restart' with no problem! Anxious to get back into ketosis after my 1 week set back and start the downward trend again! Once I got day 1 under my belt, the routine has come back to me and almost feels like I never went off. Unfortunately the scale would tell a different tale.......but that's in the past! Onward and downward!

Morning Augusters, I'm hanging in although I have to say that I'm getting bored with romaine lettuce! This morning, my scales showed a weight I haven't seen since my wedding day 9 years ago, YAY. I've roasted fresh Brussel sprouts and cauliflower Sunday night and have been living off them - yum! Cauliflower with curry is SOOO good. The work outs (weightlifting 2 x a week) have been good, although I do get dizzy. I'm off to Ecuador for a 13 day vacation on Nov 23rd, and plan to stay on program so really want to be focused now. Have a great day!
