Fun find: I put my raspberry jelly in freezer and found that, once it was slightly frozen, it's a lot like gelato...
very smooth and creamy. Yum! I also put sea salt on my chocolate pudding...sort of a version of salted caramel.

I had to re-read this as I thought at first you meant the mock jam from WF, lol. Couldn't figure out how it might taste as 'gelato.' :doh: doh!

I used to add sea salt to my Dark Chocolate pudding, sometimes a whole tsp of cinnamon, sometimes a big dollop of WF Peanut Spread, and sometimes a dash of chili powder for Mayan xocolatl :D

4 different versions for a bit more variety...

Good Morning all!
I am a total newbie to everything IP! But I have been researching and reading and reading everything from this board and I THINK I have my head wrapped around it all! I have an order sitting in my cart at nashuanutrition since I plan to follow the alternative program only. I reviewed my choices then deleted some due to them being super restricted I dont want to start off with too much that I already can't have. Still way confused about the vitamins dont know which ones to get even with the links provided here but I will do my best!

Ok...I have been sitting at the same weight for nearly a week now with no cheating. I'm on week 3 and have my weigh-in on Weds. I also just finished my TOM. I know loss will slow from the first few weeks....but i'm still making myself crazy! Any tips to keep sane?

Stop looking at the scale every day.

Haha! Yes!!! I did skip looking since Friday and then was bummed to see my same number. I need to skip again until Weds (but I will weigh myself in AM before weigh since I don't go in until late afternoon.

We are about in the same place and I too tend to weigh myself every morning (even though I know I shouldn't) and my scale hasn't changed all week either. I officially weigh in tomorrow but know it won't be different. I'm thinking since the first three weeks were great this must be our slow week. We just need to keep on going and it will eventually show us what we want. :)

And while I realize it won't be this way every week I'm celebrating having a week's worth of will-power. And this is definitely encouraging to stay on the program. :P

Way to go Michael!! It helps having some big loses in the begining to keep us motivated to reach our goal.

That is a great NSV :carrot:

- Cooluu & Evemomma - inches may be changing and each week can be different. Sometimes I found my loses would be slower one week after a bigger week the week before. Your body needs time to adjust.

I have been missing this forum, our internet issues continue at the house so have quickly logged on at work. I find myself thinking of and craving fruit lately - i blame the nicer weather. I need to remember that I will eventually be able to have a fruit on maintanence.

The food did not taste as good as I thought it would have. 2. The wine was lovely but I easily could have done without it - and the headache the next day. 3. The fun of the night wasn't worth a 2 pound gain and a slow down of weight loss for this week.
I'm back on board 100%. I'm not beating myself up too much though because the past 3 weeks have been really hard to stay 100% and this cheat has made me recommit myself to the diet...

Ug I totally know the feeling of rough week. I haven't cheated but I sure felt like I was about to all the time lately. Glad the cheat made you feel recommitted though! A lot of people go the other way. :hug:

So today was my official weigh in, not surprisingly I was up that pound from yesterday but oh well! LOL, I mean I "ONLY" lost 3.6 lbs this week.... ;) all in all the suffering of the week led to a good end, glad I stayed OP and I didn't cave.

Good pep talk!!!

I was doing really well not weighing at first, but then it was FUN to see a loss every day. Well, now I just need to gut it out until Wednesday. I was hoping to be down 15 lbs for Disney...but I guess I can only control what I can control.

GL at your weigh in tomorrow!

Funny, but now that I'm on maintenance, fruit isn't such a huge part of my life anymore. Yes I enjoy it but I don't crave it and sometimes I go the whole day without choosing it. I used to loooove bananas, at all stages of ripeness from almost crunchy, when they don't peel properly (btw, high in resistant starch - interesting google) to almost black & dead looking. :cb: Now I might have a banana maybe 3x week. I like all fruit except durian, lol. But maybe if I was exposed often enough, I might come to like it. After all, I like strong smelly cheeses, lol.

Beck diet solution
May 6, 2014 - Tuesday Reality Check

Unless youre doing something like training for a marathon and truly do have different fuel needs, its important to separate your exercise from your eating. People tend to overestimate the amount of calories they burn while exercising, and consequently impede themselves from losing weight because they have the sabotaging thought, Its okay to eat this [extra food] since I exercised today.

cooluu 05-06-2014 11:11 AM

Well I had my 4th week weigh in and lost .4 lbs. which equals 3.3 lbs. a week. Not exactly what I wanted but it's a great average! I've also went down 4% body fat and several inches so things are going in the right direction.

This is absolutely TRUE...compounded by the fact that as you do lose...the caloric deficit from the same exercise also drops! Raw deal Huh??? But it is what it is..! Just be aware....Translation: means with time...(once you hit goal...) you do need to think about "ramping" it up. The good thing is the flexibility, cardiac benefit and balance you get from exercise IS going to allow you to move well and enjoy life.

But that occasional slice of pizza or glass of wine will take even more to "offset"....

Fourth WI today, down another 3 pounds! I have been very consistent week to week, but inches are still slow. I finally did lose an inch in my waist, so hooray for that!

My first travel experience OP is coming up this weekend as I am traveling to Syracuse for my brother's graduation...I bought a few Ready-Made drinks, extra packets, and WF sample size dressings to help me get through since we'll be eating in restaurants most of the time. I'm confident I can do it!

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!
