PostSubject: First time for everything   Mon Oct 17, 2011 11:15 am

Well, I'm not sure where this will appear in the grand scheme of things, but I figured I would give it a go and attempt to post something. Weekends are such a challenge for me! It's not that I'm laying around bored on the weekends, but there seems to be more time to think about food! During the week, I have no problem with temptation. I managed to stay on track this past weekend but it wasn't easy like it usually is.
Picked up some English Toffee Stevia drops for my coffee -- really takes care of my sweet tooth.

Hi Jane,
Your post came through perfectly.
For me, when I have time to think about food, I do. But when I'm on P2, generally, I'm not hungry (only a couple of times I have been). Are you hungry or just "bored".

I'm a true foodaholic, so its always on my mind ~ hungry or not.

Isn't the English Toffee good!!! I don't care for the plain stevia, but ET is so good!

Glad you made it to the journals. Have a great Monday.

Hi Jane!

Welcome to the Gal Pals journals! I'll have to go back to facebook and reread your 'story' but I"m glad you came over here for the support!

I'm in week 2 of P2 and have 5.5 to lose to get to my goal. I've been doing this for 14 months and have lost close to 70#s so far. I'm a slow loser and have taken many months off for maintenance. Love this plan and it has changed my life like so many others here.

Take care!

Start Date: 10/11/11

10/21/11 - 10.3 (1.7 loss) 1/2 of a gigantic apple, chicken breast, Melba toasts, strawberries, cucumber, onion
10/22/11 - 11.1 (0.8 loss) Grilled chicken, strawberries, apple, melba toast, chicken breast rotisserie
10/23/11 - 12.1 (1.0 loss) Curried chicken and onion, strawberries, apple, melba toast
10/24/11 - 12.1 ( 0 loss) Curried chicken and onion (leftovers) apple and orange, melba toast
10/25/11 - 12.5 (0.4 loss) Chicken breast, apple, melba toast. (not feeling good. didn't eat much)
10/26/11 - 15.3 (2.8 Loss) Same ol' same ol'
10/27/11 - 16.3 (1.0 Loss) I only had some leftover chicken and nothing else. Ran out of appropriate food and didn't have time to go the store. Never hungered!
10/28/11 - 17.1 (0.8 Loss) Rotisserie chicken, melba toast, orange, apple.
10/29/11 - 18.3 (1.2 Loss)
10/30/11
10/31/11
11/01/11
11/02/11
11/03/11 - 20.6 (2.3 loss) Had a couple of business lunches this week and it was a challenge. Shredded chicken over mounds of lettuce with onion & advocado/salad wt toms and beef.
11/04/11
11/05/11

10/25/11 I need to figure out if curried chicken or my change in fruit is slowing me down. The curry powder doesn't traditionally have sugar in it but I better double check. This is a slow loss for me.
11/03/11 Must do better about keeping track. Showing 5 days with 2.3 loss. It's starting to slow but I'll stick it out until the 10th since I'm so close.

Thank you. I'm having grilled fish tonight for a change. The weekend is here, so I have to be resilient!
I'll be thinking about my post in the morning; it'll keep me motivated.

The weekend went well as I'm not really hungry or craving anything now. I do love to cook and bake especially this time of year. I made green chile stew, and slow cooker pork chops with apple chutney and it all smelled and looked delicious. The one thing that's kind of hard is not taste testing; not because I have to have a bite but to ensure the correct seasoning etc. Although, I have a couple of willing volunteers in my house so problem solved.

A wonderful thing happened this morning. It's getting quite chilly in the mornings so I decided to wear boots today. I have a cute pair of black boots that come up just above the ankle. Last year I couldn't quite zip them up all the way up without discomfort, no problem this morning. Zip Zip Zip ---- funny how little things like that mean so much!

Wow - some great sliding. cheers cheers cheers

I know what you mean about the tasting for seasoning the food. Strange not being able to taste. Thank goodness for volunteers!

Yes, little things are what keeps us going and loving the slide. So happy for you and your boots. Sound really cute!

Ahhhhh! The simple pleasures like zipping up boots!

Your losses look terrific! I know what you mean about not being able to taste-test things. I really don't like cooking but when I do, there's certain things I do make that I take great pride in.

Keep up the good work! You're rocking this round!

heya... have you always had the same protein twice in a day and several days in a row? I have never done that... but would be willing to try.

Dawn
I pretty much stick to chicken and do fish every now and then. Chicken is so versatile, quick, and easy to cook.
I also eat rotisserie style chicken from Oscar Meyer. It's only breast meat with no skin, very lean and comes in a 6oz package so I basically will use the package for a day's worth of protein.
I did ok on steak last week but usually it slows me down.

Hey Jane,

Wow you are luckier than me because those packaged cold cuts made me retain water from all the salt!
I am glad you found something that works for you.

Do you know how long you are going to be on?
Do you have a plan for maintenance?

I'm one of the planners of the group if you couldn't tell...
LOL

I'm going to November 10. My plan for maintenance is to just watch the scale.
Eat healthy, but I do plan to indulge for the holidays. This year however, it will be with much restrained and in moderation as I don't want my weight going up!

So many goodies over the holidays and I do a lot of baking, but I get a lot of pleasure and satisfaction out of others enjoying my food; I'll have to relish in that a bit more than doing it myself.

so I go to look at your results page...

10/26/11 - 15.3 (2.8 Loss) Same ol' same ol'
10/27/11 - 16.3 (1.0 Loss)


THAT is fantastic!! The goose egg was simply fat moving on out, water filling its place and you 'flushed' it out with a result of these fantastic numbers the last two days!! I am so envious of your ability to have such a high daily average!!!!

Do share, you last three or four days menus - exactly???

I'm doing well Dawn thanks. I have to go shopping as I've run out of food and I've been so busy and stressed out today that I just went without eating. I know that's probably really bad but it's been a horrid day and I am a non-eater when stressed.

Anyway, for the past few days I've just kept it simple:

I spray a pan lightly with olive oil spray (I tried going no spray but everything sticks and it's 0 calories for a 2 second spray)
I sprinkle curry powder on the chicken and chop up a small onion to throw in the pan. It's very flavorful, easy and on the good list.
For fruit I stick to apples because I see a difference when I eat strawberries or oranges.
I always have my melba toast because I'm a carboholic and this is my small but somewhat satisfying fix. I buy the Melba Snacks Garlic flavor.
So much better than the plain and no more calories or carbs. I help myself to two for each serving.
I'm very bad at eating veggies, but like I said I add an onion to the chicken or I have some sliced cucumber with a splash of malt vinegar and
I also eat pickled onions in malt vinegar ---it's an English thing and not for everyone but I love them. (no kissy hubby after consumption)

That's about it. That's what I eat just about every day. I do have some fish in the freezer but haven't touched it.

I drink water like it's going out of style, but I put a little lemon juice in it and add some stevia for slight sweetness.
I drink a lot of coffee too sweetened with stevia. I think the coffee helps kill any appetite I might have.

Wow - you are doing awesome Jane Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

I enjoyed reading your menus. Never thought about pickled onions. I've mostly been very scared of varying of the P2 protocol too much, but going to test some water this next January.

Here's to some more super sliding until November 10.

Did you ever get over to Whole Foods to get the Valencia orange Stevia drops?? They ROCK! I actually have Sean drinking more water than anything because of those drops.

I'm gonna try the curry chicken thing..... this next round for me.... I'm not gonna obsess over every single .1 ... so please, keep me to that, ok?? LOL
