I have to avoid those things that make me think about my arch enemy foods. There is no way I could eat anything called "cheesecake bites" right now!
I had my week two weigh in today and I am down 3.5lbs but up in fat, down in water. My counsler reviewed my journal looking for something to explain it but she didn't find anything, and I don't know why. I have been very good with everything I have eaten. I am not focusing on the numbers, just the direction. Downward we go!
That is the right attitude because just like the stock market, it is the long term progress that matters. The cheesecake bites are mostly cool whip and reduce fat or fat free cream cheese and should not be a problem, unless they added a crust or you had too many of them. That was one of the staples of my early program and it worked out beautifully. The bottom line is that you need to be honest with what ends up in your mouth.

WOW!! I'd say that's an accomplishment even with the slip. I just had my first week weigh-in and lost 9 lbs. But I am also a night snacker and I wonder how I will handle it when the real cravings start kicking in. I've been on so many other diets before and after a while my body seems to get immune to the "diet plan food" and starts hankering for something more!!
And I would like to add that you started between Christmas and New Years, so had those celebrations to contend with as well. You are doing great!

Weighed in today and I'm ONE pound away from being down 100!! I guess I know what my goal is this week!! Want to lose at least ONE pound I'm pretty happy since this was my "week 1" back from surgery and I wasn't able to exercise too much yet. Really overdid it last week trying a step/cardio/weights class (2 weeks post-surgery... prob. not not the best choice). I'm just now over the soreness in my calves!

Anyhoo, I'm looking forward to reaching that 100 pounds and getting a snazzy new avatar soon

Glad to know they were part of your program and you have had such wonderful success!
I am trying to get some traction first before I go exploring in the recipe and other food links. I know this early on in the program for me, I have to keep clear of the "mind" field foods! Once I build up some confidence and success, I will need to expand my horizons to get variety and things like cheesecake bites will be a prize to savor!
Thanks for all your tips, you are an insipration!

Every clinic is different, I guess. Mine wants me to follow what is on the sheet only.

I enter everything into Dailyplate.com and bring that to the clinic for my food journal. I think part of the problem was that the cheesecake bites nutrition info was probably formatted for the higher fat version- the Hungry Girl version of the recipe? Plus the recipe name just sounded bad. My clinic questioned the EAS powder too and didn't want me to use it. I really appreciate how involved my clinic is. The NP even called to see how I was doing.

I have no idea why I gained a pound that second week. I thought I had hit a plateau and I wore heavy jeans to the weigh in, so that's what I think happened? My fat went down that week anyway.

Today my size 16 jeans fell off. They've been loose for a while. I might jump right into size 12. I couldn't stand it and jumped on the scale. Another pound gone.

I have been teary all day. Haven't been 175 for YEARS. Thank you, God. Cheers to my fellow losers. And thank you SO MUCh for all of the support!

thinking of you Jerry. I'll have to ask about the MediMelts. It seems I never make it back for a second injection with my busy schedule.

Question for the experts :-) Does week 1 end on the 7th day or after your second weigh-in?

Debbie- Thanks!! I am thrilled. Still tired ALL the time, sadly.

I weighed in earlier this week and passed the 100# mark and then some! I am officially down 104# now. I was on the scale with the nurse and she was telling everyone that it was my 100# weigh in. Of course everyone was celebratory and the head doctor (Dr Cobb) walked by and said, "I want you on MY appointment books next visit! You are in a new club now and we need to celebrate your success!" WoW!

I seem to just be plugging along with no cheating or no real issues or questions, so I never ask to have an appointment with her. I am honored she requested me! But a little nervous at the same time! I will keep my journal and choices perfectly for the next 2 weeks for sure!

I was nervous, though, when I started off the week with the stomach flu and throwing up anything and everything. I panicked when I thought about what to eat and all the old "sick" foods came to mind... crackers, dry toast, etc since they are not compliant. But I could not have kept them down anyway! I drank a LOT of diet 7 up for the first 24 hours and somehow got through it all. I think I am finally rehydrated and able to eat again. Now to get back on the Wii Fit Plus!

THIS IS WHAT I"M TALKING ABOUT! WTG! Medi IS the one!

A BUNCH of things happening quickly! Tomorrow is my radio interview on WJR at 605pm central and it can be found here News/Talk 760 WJR My eagle interview will be in Tuesdays paper and the Ark Valley news is interviewing me also on Tuesday. Wednesday is my tummy tuck and it looks like the Today... Show wants me after I heal up a bit! More big news around the corner but can't divulge that info yet! Still hitting it hard and weighed in this morning at 230. It looks good that I will be in the 220's by surgery time! That ultimate goal of 193 (or 300 pounds lost) looks to be in reach this year! I am fitting into 38's now and some large shirts! Ribs are starting to show up and when I lay down...my breast bone and ribs really show-up!!

I am new here, so, I'm sorry if I'm bothering any of you - but I need the support! I don't want to fall off this diet too! I am starting off Day 2 today. I had no issues yesterday, except for a lot of shakiness last night. I need to loose about 50 pounds and feel like it's so far from my grasp but I want to feel good about myself and be able to look in a mirror without gasping and wondering why I did this to myself!!

I am so happy for all of you which have lost so much weight! You are all inspiring to me!

Deb328g,
No bother, that is what this blog is for! I am only on day 18, so there are plenty of others who can give you more help. From me, I can tell you it gets easier once you get through week 1. I have only had two weigh ins, and am down 11lbs. Doesn't seem like a lot, but it actually is for the time period. This whole message board is about how to go thru this, ideas to help, and support abounds! I did some research and read the boards for about two weeks before I joined. Keep reading, you will find the source of your inspiration here. If you are particularly hungry, chicken broth (read the newbie threads for the right kinds) can help. Powerade zero and crystal light hydration have been very helpful to me to keep fatigue away. Eat small amts regularly and stay hydrated. Keep your focus on the desired result, not on the food you are missing. These are things that help me.
You can do this, it is in your power to succeed!

I am in day 6 of week one and I am feeling awful. I honestly felt great up until day 4. I woke up feeling very fatigued to the point that I called in sick to work and went and got the second MIC. I have spent most of the weekend at home. I actually slept until 1. I have been eating regularly, drinking lots of water and powerade zero. I am feeling jittery, nauseated and extremely tired. I’m having a hard time convincing myself to stick it out. Does anyone have any suggestions of how to push through the next 3 days?

so sorry you're feeling this bad BUT I was the same way BUT I pushed through it knowing what the final outcome was going to be
If I were you, I'd get some chicken broth and start drinking it. The electrolytes in it will help with the nausea.Continue to get lots of sleep and remember, all this too shall pass!!!
It took me a month before I felt like myself But,by then, I'd lost 20lbs!!!
Not everyone responds the same to this WOE, so do what you feel is necessary to keep you feeling good!
You could also try the sublingual vit B, it will help with your energy levels. You cannot overdose on B vitamins so it will not hurt you.

Hope this helps!!

Shananigans - thank you so much! I got thru day 2 today. I was a bit hungry at times. I don't think I've EVER drank this much water in my life. Problem is - I feel so darn jittery!! Hope it passes!

I'm on day 2 today as well. Yesterday was pure hell for me but I feel better today. I have dizziness and fatigue but the massive hunger I had yesterday is a lot better today. I don't know if we can have it or not but I got desperate last night and broke out a pack of sugar free gum. It helped me a lot!!

The appetite suppresant is probably responsible for most of the jittery feeling. That will get better.

My clinic told me I could have the sugar-free gum. I haven't tried it yet - but I think it's worth a trip to the store to get some. This morning I woke up and feel 'so-so'. A little shakey still. Day 3 - BRING IT ON!!

CCCOX- I am not able to take their vitamins. They make me have horrible stomach problems. If you had a multivitamin that you took before Medi, then take the bottle in to the clinic and ask if it's OK. If it's not, ask them what you need to look for and explain that the vitamin they provide is too hard on your stomach. There are lots of other vitamins out there, so just make sure you're going to be getting all the nutrients you need if you purchase a different brand.
