Linda - I have been off the boards for a few days. I am truly sorry to see the negative posts that have been directed at you. I have known you for so many years and have never considered you negative in anyway. You are one of the most caring, thoughtful people I know. You are always so dedicated to what you are doing.

I am almost sorry I suggested that you come here for support on this getting healthy journey, but I know you will come through ok.

Keep up the positive spirit and we will get to our healthy weight before you know it!

Nancy

I hope we will all be able to help. You will learn pretty quick that there is no room for cheating on this diet. There are 100% people and 90% people. All out cheats though will get you no where and be very expensive.

Use all the threads here to get the most support and have your questions answered.

You can do this!!!

Default Thanks!

Thanks for the welcome!

IP43, I nearly spit water all over my screen when I read what you wrote - you are too funny (and very gracious, too!)

This protocol really doesn't have room for all-out "cheats" (realizing that everyone makes mistakes) but that is actually the beauty of it. I know I benefit from the rigid structure of it. I need very defined limits and restrictions or I will test the limits every time.
My current challenge is not in slipping up by having something I shouldn't, but really focusing on getting every blessed ounce of water my coach recommends into my body every day, making sure I get every supplement at the recommended time, and all my salt and oil in daily. It's harder than I want it to be, but as Lisa has shared, I have to "pick my hard" and this discipline is what I pick right now. Anyone else buckling down on this with me?

I'm telling you there are lots of recipes but they are all a variation on a theme (add flavour drops or spices) but the bottom line is add an egg white, 1/2 tsp baking powder and a bit of water if needed and your puddings, shakes, soups etc. will make a pasty batter that can be made into something baked. The water consistency will determine if it's a thinner wrap or a chunkier muffin.

Baker's warning: some things will be drier than cardboard when cold. These are "eat while warm and delicious" or "at the next day the latest" treats. The pancakes though, from IP cereal, I make a lot of and freeze them. What a fast way to get a non-restricted breakfast when needed.

Good Job for not measuring your success by the scale. Your NSV's are wonderful, keep on stepping!!

My favorite was to make oatmeal & zucchini cookies (ok, they were supposed to be muffins but my muffin tin disappeared so I did them in the whoopie tin). One maple oatmeal packet, 1 cup of shredded zucchini cooked for about a minute in the microwave, 1 egg white, 1/4 tsp baking powder, a little salt and a splash of vanilla then bake at 325 for about 15 minutes. Made 6 cookies and were yummy for breakfast with my coffee.

You can do the same with the puddings and drink mixes too. I found adding the zucchini helped keep them from getting too dry and got a cup of veggies in too.
