Danibee.I am not on IP but am also Ukrainian.I host Christmas Eve every year and was in the middle of a diet that followed IP principles.I cooked for 22 people and the dinner went well and I did not gain a single pound.I had perogies,cabbage rolls and of course turkey and trimmings.I also had lots of vegetables like cauliflower and turnips.I was able to eat the meat and cauliflower and stay on plan.I just used super human effort and resisted the temptation to overeat and stayed on plan.It can be done.I am planning the same for this year.Good luck.

I'm super excited about finding LizRR's "Sweet Fauxtato Pie" Recipe since I've been having pumpkin pie cravings. I'm taking my time and making this up on Saturday. TOM is definitely on the horizon.

Argh...another recipe to add to my rutabaga wish list! Sounds like an even more awesome version of my faux mashed sweet potatoes. And who knew there was canned rutabaga. Thanks for posting.

I thought I was the ONLY person that cooked perogies and cabbage rolls!! Of course I don't eat them!

Eek, danibee! Trad Ukrainian cooking is so carb dependent! About the only choice is sauerkraut. My hubby is Polish/Ukrainian descent.

So, last night I left my husband to get the kids to bed and hid away and read the first 4 days of the Beck Diet Solution. I was inspired by people here to read it. I made my ARC cards and am beginning the strategies suggested in the book. I think I will be carrying a copy of those ARC cards around with me in my pocket. They are a list of reasons why I want to lose weight. I am determined to beat this self sabotage, giving in to cravings and momentary self gratification that derails me all the time. It's so disheartening. I really need to start thinking like an adult about losing weight. One of the strategies further on is to find a diet coach so no better place than the boards here (and all of you). Good luck on this journey everyone. It can be so so difficult but it is also a fantastic, wonderful experience when followed through properly. Have a good day.

Good evening everyone. I posted the above paragraph in yesterdays post before it closed. i'm in Europe so there is a large time difference. I have placed the Arc cards in my desk, my bag and purse. One strategy is to sit and mindfully eat. I thought that this was something I did do, until I caught myself running around with my morning shake getting the kids ready for school and at lunch time I began my lunch sitting down but in front of a computer not mindfully eating. So, already learning some new things about my eating habits.
Good luck with your biopsy, this girl... and good luck with your detective work Pishposh.
I'm glad you stated that you had previously written that first part. I thought I was going a bit looney..I knew I had read it before..lol

Default Beck Diet Solution Daily Tip

  • October 2, 2014 - Think Thin Thursday Tip

    If healthy eating feels really painful to you, you may be giving food a bigger role than it deserves. Food is a pleasure in life, but itís not the only one. Try building other sources of pleasure and excitement in your life, and in doing so, youíll rely less on food to be ďfunĒ and healthy eating will be easier.
  • October 1, 2014 - Wednesday Sabotage

    Wednesday Sabotage: I donít have time for my dieting skills.

    Response: It doesnít take that much time to actually do everything. What does take time is how long I spend struggling beforehand over whether or not Iím going to do it. Once I make the decision to definitively do these things, the struggle will go away and the time I spend will be reduced significantly.
And one more thought I found
Wisdom Wednesday: Food should not be a replacement for something else that is missing in your life.

I truly believe I would not be as successful at this if I did not have this community.
Those are ROCKIN' NSVs!
And I believe the same thing about success...there is strength in numbers!

SG: WOOHOO!

kissi: Thanks! Lately I have been averaging more like 2 pounds per week but I had some really nice losses in the beginning and then a few sprinkled throughout so it bumped up my "average". I definitely am more successful than I originally hoped to be on this diet! I'm just going to keep on keeping on You too!

Rayze: Awesome NSVs!!!
