Ditto that^ Congrats on P2, Rayze! My coach originally said to stay in P1 until I was 80% toward goal weight. Last few weeks, she has switched to saying 100% to that weight. I guess it's OK with me, since I like P1 and am afraid of everything beyond. Just curious though: Did most of you all move to P2 when AT or ALMOST AT goal weight?

Then I'll throw in chopped up veggies. Yesterday was chopped mushrooms, chard, green onions and zucchini.

I use all IP products so snacks are covered.
I'll have to look up that Dragon's Breath Chili. We love spicy stuff! I'll also have to start slipping in turkey to replace the gr beef we are so used to. Hubbie might frown but whatev; he'll just have to adjust along with me! As long as it doesn't taste like turkey, he'll be okay. Same about chicken. I have to really cover up the taste of it or he won't eat it.

Have to ask: what's ya'lls fav camping spot(s)! Ours are Lost Maples or Garner!

Here's the recipe http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/g...li-recipe.html

I brown 1lb ground venison/lean grd beef and start at the section with chili powder down to black pepper. Add IP appropriate canned tomatoes, water and veggies. If I'm feeling feisty I add jalapeños. But I reduce all the seasonings by half. It is hot!

Love Gardner and Lost Maples. Such a beautiful area of TX. We have extended family in Leakey so we typically don't camp in that area since we have family to stay with. We camp quite often at Jim Hogg (Georgetown) and Union Grove (Belton). Have reservations for Bastrop in March. Interested to see how it is fairing since the fires.

Great to have you here to share recipes and ideas with!

Happy long weekend everyone!
I recently had my second WI and I am down 3.4 lbs which brought me to (drum roll please lol) Onederland! I am so excited and so motivated to continue to stay OP, I feel like I have finally found something that works for me!

@Rayze, congratulations on your phase 2 success.
@Linda.lou Sorry about those first two pancake packets.
@CenTXChk Great finds! Nice job staying OP while camping!

CenTXChk thanks for the link; I'm ashamed as a Texan to admit I rarely make chili but I believe it may just be added to my menu! Love Leakey! Lucky you to have folks there!

Lilaberry congrats on making it to Onderland! sounds like a beautiful place! I plan to be visiting it in about a year!

Sgrealtor1 sounds like a great way to spend a Saturday! I don't know that I could have left without a puppy though...

Sue,
Your work sounds so rewarding.
I am in NJ too. Be careful on the roads; they are very slick and black ice is everywhere. I was going to run my errands and saw three accidents. My own car almost hit a parked car when I stopped to tell an officer about an accident I passed. I decided to abort my errand mission and return home.

Hi, Mimi - I am in a reboot - first time around 1 stayed in phase 1 until goal, then moved directly to phase 3. I kept losing even into maintenance. I would be cautious about moving away from phase 1 before you reach goal. I have heard talk about the 5 lb. gain many people experience - something about glycogen stores - as they move into maintenance, although I did not experience that.

Frawniemae - he probably won't even notice - I think for some guys, it's more the idea of it than the taste. I've sneaked turkey into chili and my hubby did not know until I told him...

Sgrealtor - Oooh - my "puppy" (8 YO yellow lab) would love to have a buddy... don't think I could have left without one of those little guys. What sort of shelter do you work with?

Luckily the third one turned out perfectly. Topped it with WF choc peanut spread, rolled it up like a crepe then poured some WF strawberry syrup over it and YUM!

Disappointed about 2 wasted packets though.
If you aren't opposed to alternatives, try the sugar free new hope mills pancake mix. Only about $5 a box. I have to order online but I believe it's in the US at grocery stores.

I was 2 pounds above goal when I moved to phase 2 as I was going away in a month and wanted to have my fun day. I ended up 5 pounds below my goal weight starting p4. I didn't get the up pounds for the glycogen they talk about. My up pounds came in the form of war too mant Christmas cookies and other indulgences in the month of December!

I hint continuing to lose when you phase off depends on how low you go in the first place.my losses had never slowed down so obviously I still had some weight to lose and some people's bodies will respond well to a little more food.

Had the best breakfast today...made a Belgian waffle from the choc chip pancake mix! Also, while I am frustrated with lack of movement on the scale this week I had a NSV this morning with a blood sugar reading of 73 (I am insulin resistant)!!

CenTXChk and frawniemae -- Gonna have to make chili today because my mouth's been watering since you mentioned Guy Fieri's recipe!

I'm with Lizzy63 -- my hubby and son don't even really notice when I use ground turkey instead of beef, especially in something like chili, which has so many other yummy ingredients. If making something that would benefit from a little more flavor, I sometimes use half beef and half turkey -- that works too!

Lizzy and ChipnDip -- glad to hear you did not get the up pounds, but I hear ya, and I think the risk of that extra 5-lb-gain might keep me on P1 just a bit longer…. Will see where I am at the next WI in 4 days.

Are you adding the other ingredients to dry quest powder? Some people have made the mistake of mixing a shake first.

I use
1 scoop quest powder
1 c (from raw) sauteed zucchini (which cooks down to much less)
1 egg white (measured from carton)
salt
baking powder
vanilla
in the amounts listed in the recipe. It makes a really thick "dough", much like a cookie dough.

A few years back IP had you move to P2 when hitting 90% to goal. Then they increased it to 100% before phasing off. I'm wondering if too many people quit early and didn't reach goal?
I moved through p2 and p3 before moving to p4. I did 2 weeks each. I plan to do that again. To me, there is no rush in including more food choices.

I had to phase off early for health reasons. I moved my goal to where I phased off previously. Worst-case scenario I'll learn to maintain that weight for a while and then move lower. Best case would be I continue to lose in other phases. Either way, it's all good!

Lizzy I work with a local animal shelter, but it's a no kill shelter so they take in a lot of dogs and cats from hi kill shelters and save them...

Roads were terrible this morning! We made it to the shelter, but we did about 15 mph. Lots of spinning cars around us so I kept my distance. We are off in another hour to feed the homeless....oye put too much on my plate today lol!
