Question from a newbie: Tomorrow is the 4th and the family is having hot dogs -- they are beef, "Nathan's" hot dogs. I'm not gonna die if I don't have some, but I'm just curious -- how bad would it be to have hot dogs as my meat for dinner?

Need some concrete suggestions!!!
I am really glad you asked this question! I've been wondering how to handle the decline of sizes -- and I really want to wait till I am all the way to my destination before I spend real money! I think Thrifted clothes will have to get me through.

I look up to so many of you and just want to say thank you!
Yay GraceRev! Congratulations on 50 pounds gone forever.

around here, as well as some new ones! I am having a hard time getting back on phase one after my plateau induced phase off in march. I do good for a few weeks then I get a case of the nibbles. July 11 marks the one year date for IP for me and I was hoping to be done by now so I think that frustration is causin me to loss focus. But I restarted (again!) and am feeling as though I have my motivation back to get the rest of this weight off. I am also going to start a "learn to run" clinic in the next few weeks, once my body readjusts to phase 1 again. hope everyone is having a great week!
Welcome back Susie. You can do this! You did it for months with great results.

Hot dogs are high in fat and sodium. If you won't die without having one, I would not partake.

Reposting from another thread:
HOUSE NEWS: The bank said "yes" (WOOOT WOOT) so we go sign the papers tomorrow and now own way too many houses. Good news though is that we have 3 people coming to look at our house tomorrow and it just was listed as of today. I hope that is a good sign.
Thanks for all the prayers to get our dream house. Could we have a few now that we sell what we need to sell so I only have one house to live in?

I have a "miracle" story to share if it works out as I hope -- but I'm gonna save it so I don't "jinx" it. But it's a good one for GraceRev and all the people who have been thinking of us.... now you're all wondering...

We cannot give medical advice to you regarding your needing exercise with your conditions. You will need to meet with your coach and Dr to discuss the layout in this protocol as it pertains to exercise.

Just my personal opinion, but to me the issue would not be so much the possible 'damage' a hot dog would do as much as it would be that it is important to learn to plan ahead and make choices that enable you to stay with the program.

There will be ever so many other special occasions that you may face...birthdays, anniversaries, etc and it helps to develop skills to handle them. If you read many of the threads on here, you will see some of the "tools" that people have used successfully to meet this challenges.

So, a hot dog will not "be bad" as a meat but the planning of a way to stay on the program might be better.

I agree to consulting with someone official - especially with some health complications to consider. However the general protocol is not a lot of exercise in P1 (at first anyway) because it is such a low calorie plan. You definitely need an extra pack if you exercise but I can't remember if it's before or after you work out LOL -- that's why I don't exercise Walking is good. I think we just mentioned "conversational cardio" as a guideline for a reasonable workout level of intensity.

I am in a somewhat similar position since I also have FM and Arthritis (although Osteo from accidents, not Rheumatoid). The gym will be a good place to do 'conversational cardio' when the weather is too hot or humid to walk much outside or pouring with rain, etc. But you should definitely wait to do any more intensive exercise until you are off P1. You can do some weights if your joints allow for it, but again - your body cannot be working on losing fat and building muscle at the same time. It needs to concentrate on the fat loss first then exercise and muscle strengthening/building will be more comfortable and easier to do. I used to weight lift but can't anymore because of grip problems and other joint issues. Check with the gym trainers after going to the doc & see if you can work out a way of doing certain exercises in the gym that may be easier on the joints. I use the resistance of water in the pool by doing aquafit and deep water running. I still like to use the elliptical and the bikes at the gym though.

Check with your rheumatologist about an exercise prescription. The pain from fibro is NOT a sign of inflammation and damage, just overactive sensory systems & excess P cells. BUT you may have pain from your arthritis and that could be a different matter. That's why talking to your specialist about it is important. I try to at least do stretches everyday even on very bad days, so I feel I've accomplished some useful exercise for my body to keep it from going downhill even quicker.

Omg, I had surgery on Wednesday and went up over 5 pounds. I was 123.6 before going in and weighted 128 this morning. I hear the IV fluid can make you go up but I was very surprised. I feel and look so bloated. I am in phase 4 right now and got a bit over my goal weight and want to get below it so I can be at 120 but it has been hard. Seeing 128 almost made me want to cry today.
