Hey gang. Well today it took the willpower of (insert a strong animal or person) and I did it. I stayed on plan. I so wanted to stray today. Dreaming of chips of all things at my desk today. I have had three protein shakes and now time for my meal. Only two more days of this and then to my new program.

I want to thank you all for being here because if it wasn't for this thread I know I would stray. I just didn't want write a big ZERO for today.

Thanks!

I need the tough love trust me! You earned an extra point today I think. I am wondering if the elliptical counts as cardio...and what about Julian Micheals Shred.....I know my heart is about to jump out of my chest when I am done!

I am so proud of you! You are doing great!

I wanted to eat "other" stuff too! It was tough today. I've been very hungry today. There may have been a little more carb creep than I thought last night since I haven't been hungry all week
It's been a brutal week. I was wrapped up in legal stuff today and it really hurt my brain. I really don't like legal speak.
Then I was invited to lunch and ordered a bacon cheeseburger without the bun and salad. It was good.
I'm off to my sauna now for a good cook. Man is it ever raining here!!

btw Angela which protein shakes are you using?

Angela and Rachel---I am so glad you kicked temptation in the butt and stayed on plan. So far I haven't had any really strong cravings this time around but I know that can all change in a minute. I plan to come back and read your posts again about how you stayed focused to use as my inspiration if I need it. Rock on, you two!

The way I feel now I don't even know if I am going to be able to eat dinner (greek chicken salad). Thank you Dedicated. That may be something I use as a reward if I stay on plan all week.

LOL.....I gotta get some!!! I've been eating shrimp every other day..gotta get some crabs!!! I'm always up a lb the next day...soooo maybe after the challenge lol

Edited to say that at least I WAS your partner. Seems like everyday we have new ones! Can we figure this out so that I can just DO this thing?
You still are her partner, the list isn't changing where I'm removing or switching up people, just adding people who need teams. You can and should be just doing this thing.....it's all figured out...dig in!

We hear ya....it's not required to post every second....just enough so you're active and your partners are encouraged!

I'm just checking in.......I don't know if I can do this. I'm having a gob of aches and pains that I've never experienced.
I lost 3 lbs this week, which is surprising because I've been on plan - haven't had bites of anything that I'm not supposed to, but I feel pretty much like crap. My feet hurt and I've never experienced that before, and when I sit at the computer for very long my feet feel like they're swelling up - I've never had THAT happen either. I look at them and they look normal, but really, I feel (right now) like I weigh twice as much as I do.
I started doing stretches and lunges at night, and then leg lifts (when I'm in my bed) to try to tone my gut. Okay - suggestions? Seriously, I kind of feel a bit like road kill.

I'm not sure what to suggest...have you tried Walk away the pounds? Even though it's cardio...most of the moves are low impact and can be modified if need be. The swelling I'm not sure of......if you want to keep moving...WATP may be an option for you

Sorry you are feeling that way Lucy.But just think pretty soon your feet & knees back everything will feel much better. I would suggest going for a short walk everyday just to get blood circulating through your body.

I am getting no points for exercising because i am so hungry i am going to kill someone if i exercise because it will make me even more hungry. I ate on plan from sun-today because i started induction on that day. Does this challenge go from Mon-Fri or all weekend too? I am going to go eat everything in sight!

YEah!! THere is NO way I'm going to screw up on the weekend and take away whatever work I've done all week. So DO NOT EAT EVERYTHING IN SIGHT ArmystoleHim .... if I can shove myself up off the chair and move, you can just eat another salad!

My eating has been good, and I dont' think I've been hungry, but I eat a lot of broccoli with a handful of shredded cheese melted on the top.....hard boiled eggs, deviled eggs, cauliflower by the head with butter, and some sour cream. The meat is kind of hit and miss. I was eating hot dogs but someone told me that wasn't a good idea because of all the sodium.......I've eaten whole cans of tuna. You shouldn't be hungry I don't think.

Hey Lucy are you drinking your water? You need lots. Maybe some potassium too. You can use that "Lite Salt" which is half potassium, or take a low dose supplement.
Magnesium helps too (umm closet nutritionist here).
Don't quit! You can and will do this.

I have NOT been drinking all my water, I must admit, and I'm usually a big water drinker. I've got the Lite Salt, and I've got calcium with magnesium so I'll take that .....thank you!
I'll stick with this. I won't win, but I won't give up either. At least this makes me feel accountable, and keeps me out of the kitchen if nothing else. Thank you all!

The more bloated you feel, the more water you need to flush it out. Sounds crazy, but it's true.
Have a great evening!!

Don't worry i am eating everything on sight thats on plan.Its just weird i am so hungry and i never have an appetite. I have eaten a whole chicken by myself today. That is not normal for me.My ratios are fine so i have no idea why i am hungry. I am going to drink more water i think it may be water hunger.Okay so i will post my points on Saturday! I definately have time to workout much more! I have having no problem staying on plan considering i break out in a rash if i was to cheat.

I am trying to read up on OWL,i think thats where a lot of us skimp on and never move up. Its hard to learn to eat this way for the rest of your life when you only have 20gs carbs to live on. I am starting to think that i should stay on induction longer not sure though.

Checkin in ladies..stayed on plan today im at work and feeling a lil blah...My daughter had been baby sitting this little girl for the past two years and we found out her mom had passed away the lil girl is only three and me and my fam became attached to her i would go and get her and she would spend weeks with us sometimes..her mom was young and stayed in the streets all the time i was young at one time so i understand wanting to go out some of the time..so we would go and get the baby not because she needed a baby sitter but because we loved having her around...well long story short her mom passed away and she only had a sister here in the states so of course the baby was staying with the sister someone called cps and told them that the lil girls mom was dead and they came and picked the baby up did i mention her sister was in a abusive relationship? so of course the husband didnt want the lil girl around her mom got involved with cps because come to find out she was leaving the baby alone and going out to party and the baby would wonder out side and the neighbors got tired of taking the baby in..in my head im wondering why she didnt call us and say hey can she come and spend the night while i go out im really beating myself up over here thinking about what i could have done....Im really sad about the whole situation here is one of the articals

Police: Dallas Mom Left Toddler Home To Go Party

Dallas police arrest a woman they say abandoned her child at home alone while she went nightclubbing. According to authorities, the two-year-old girl was found wandering in an apartment breezeway at 4:30 a.m.

When talking about the case, police used the terms "unsettling" and "disturbing." Officials believe the child was abandoned around midnight Saturday morning and say the mother, Cecilia Brown, didn't show up again until 6:30 a.m.

Brown was arrested when she arrived back home.

CBS 11 News went to the apartment of Cecilia Brown on Monday. A man, who didn't identify himself, answered the door. Cameras captured a woman and two children standing behind him.

"Police say that a child was left abandoned here," CBS 11 News reporter Bud Gillett said standing in the apartment breezeway. "Did that happen?" he asked. "Uh, I decline to comment," the man answered.

Police arrested the 25-year-old mother on Child Abandonment charges. They say when she finally arrived at the apartment she at first denied that it was her home or that the child was hers.

Hours earlier, a neighbor had found the toddler wandering through an apartment breezeway.

As neighbor Devon Jackson arrived home from work early Saturday, he and his mother saw police at the complex. Jackson says he has seen both Brown and the little girl. "She does leave her daughter unattended at times," Jackson claimed. "Because I see the little girl; she [Brown] would go in the house and the little girl would be on the patio by herself."

Devon's mother, Alexis Payton said, "It doesn't surprise me. This situation doesn't surprise me. It's sad and it's unfortunate, but it really doesn't surprise me."

"It's extremely serious," Dallas police spokesman Kevin Janse said of the situation. Sr. Cpl. Janse told CBS 11 News that when Brown was confronted by authorities, after arriving back home, she first tried to spin a tale about babysitter confusion, but that came unraveled.

"We've got witnesses that say they've saw this lady out as late as one o'clock in the morning," explained Janse.

The toddler has been placed with relatives.

Brown is free on $5,000 bond.

Then after all this she got the baby back after taking classes and not even a month later she dies and the baby ends back up in CPS its crazy to me i could have never let my sister child end back up in cps but then i look at it like this too her sister is in an abusive relationship...I just dont know im an emotional eater but i dont even want to eat...

Hey Lucy...sorry about the bloat...I am like Extra (sorry I don't know you name:blush but maybe you are retaining water and need some flushing...I hope you feel better though.

Police: Dallas Mom Left Toddler Home To Go Party

Dallas police arrest a woman they say abandoned her child at home alone while she went nightclubbing. According to authorities, the two-year-old girl was found wandering in an apartment breezeway at 4:30 a.m.

When talking about the case, police used the terms "unsettling" and "disturbing." Officials believe the child was abandoned around midnight Saturday morning and say the mother, Cecilia Brown, didn't show up again until 6:30 a.m.

Brown was arrested when she arrived back home.

CBS 11 News went to the apartment of Cecilia Brown on Monday. A man, who didn't identify himself, answered the door. Cameras captured a woman and two children standing behind him.

"Police say that a child was left abandoned here," CBS 11 News reporter Bud Gillett said standing in the apartment breezeway. "Did that happen?" he asked. "Uh, I decline to comment," the man answered.

Police arrested the 25-year-old mother on Child Abandonment charges. They say when she finally arrived at the apartment she at first denied that it was her home or that the child was hers.

Hours earlier, a neighbor had found the toddler wandering through an apartment breezeway.

As neighbor Devon Jackson arrived home from work early Saturday, he and his mother saw police at the complex. Jackson says he has seen both Brown and the little girl. "She does leave her daughter unattended at times," Jackson claimed. "Because I see the little girl; she [Brown] would go in the house and the little girl would be on the patio by herself."

Devon's mother, Alexis Payton said, "It doesn't surprise me. This situation doesn't surprise me. It's sad and it's unfortunate, but it really doesn't surprise me."

"It's extremely serious," Dallas police spokesman Kevin Janse said of the situation. Sr. Cpl. Janse told CBS 11 News that when Brown was confronted by authorities, after arriving back home, she first tried to spin a tale about babysitter confusion, but that came unraveled.

"We've got witnesses that say they've saw this lady out as late as one o'clock in the morning," explained Janse.

The toddler has been placed with relatives.

Brown is free on $5,000 bond.

Then after all this she got the baby back after taking classes and not even a month later she dies and the baby ends back up in CPS its crazy to me i could have never let my sister child end back up in cps but then i look at it like this too her sister is in an abusive relationship...I just dont know im an emotional eater but i dont even want to eat...
Oh my Stacy...this is awful. My heart aches for the children in this world....so innocent and defenseless against and and people really take advantage of their vulnerability! Don't beat yourself up...you did what you could when you were aware and if you don't know you don't know...I will pray for the baby and you that you will not resort to food to help comfort you....Stay in faith girlfriend!

Wow...I just can't get over a 3 year old wandering the streets alone!

Is the week over? Ends on Fridays right? Terry, Chantyl how are we girls? I am okay.

I think I have a touch of a head cold. So I laid in bed for a while deciding who I was going to murder for it. The thing is I could not think of anyone that is ill.

Did I do my siggy correct? I only exercised three days, but on plan for 5, as I ate that stupid little cookie and a little teensy weensy mint three musketeer.

Rachel I am just doing EAS protein with 2 tbsp of hwc and ice for now. I have ordered some Metabolic Drive from the US and I pick it up this weekend at some point at the post office in Blaine. I can't ship it across the border because it cost an arm and a leg. You said you were up to your ears in legalease? Well that is all I do all day long! I'm a paralegal so reading court documents is my life.

Diane what made me stay on plan is having everyone here. There was no way I was going to post I went off plan! That an the fact that I have this dress I want to fit in and when I show up at the softball park in two months I want to be the fastest girl on the team.

Lucy hope you are feeling better. I agree that you need to drink more water.

Stacy that is an unbelievable story. It makes me sad when I hear about young mothers and their situations. I don't think you could have done any more than you did. She was a troubled young lady who was probably overwhelmed. I am like you as well, children gravitate towards me. I love children but alas I have none. I think if I could have supported myself with a daycare I would have one.

Good morning
Angela I do plan review, and I was addressing a large subdivision yesterday and there were about ten restrictive covenants that I waded through. My brain was full at the end of the day. I couldn't do it full time!

Stacy I'm so sorry to hear about the baby. Let's hope the family comes through and does the right thing.

I'm off to core class at the gym. Have a super Saturday everyone!
Rachel
