    thanks Jill, but I broke. I don't know why, but I couldn't help it. I had capeletti! I mean it's not the end of the world, but I feel bad about it! Oh well, back on track today!

      That's a good attitude Lisa. And hey, we all break sometimes. That's just the way it is.

        Aww, no problem! Although I am no longer following this diet like before, I am glad that it is working for so many other ladies! I am down about 25 lbs but I'm doing the portion control and exercise route, I just couldn't stand not having carbs. But what I am doing is working for now.

        Keep up the good work ladies!

            another week almost done... It's amazing how fast the weeks fly by! this week i started the couch to 5k routine from cool runnings... I have done 2 out of the 3 runs for this week and the only problem so far is my legs are so sore the next day (which I know is a good thing).
            I have to do the 3rd run tomorrow then on to week 2. It's not that bad in week 1 but I'm afraid for weeks 3+.... hopefully the intervals really work and my stamina will be built up.

            keep up the good work ladies!!

            btw, I have podcasts of the c25k to popular music.. they rock. No looking at your watch while running, she voices over the music and tells you when to warm up, walk, run, etc. her website is Inside the Mind of Suz and you can find the podcasts (and an rss feed) on the 'podcasts' page. Beware because 'ass' is in the URL, it's blocked for me at work so I had to get from home. (There's no offensive content on the site though)

              LOL! I was just thinking only about 10 more hours until I wake up on cheat morning!

              Thanks for posting that site with the podcasts! I've been doing really well getting back into my gym routine, but I do actually enjoy running and have been trying to not just do classes everyday at the gym and actually run a couple of times a week too. The last couple of times I've done it I haven't brought my ipod and the time DRAGS!!! This will be great I'm really excited to try them! Do you need to go in order by week or are they all basically the same with different music?

                You do a different podcast each week and she changes up the music each week.

                  Hi ladie!!
                  I'm going to be starting this diet soon, but a question about liquids - I downloaded and read the entire booklet explaining the diet, but it doesn't mention anywhere how much water you should be drinking? if you're allowed to drink coffee? or diet-soda? Anyone know the answers to this?? Thanks so much for your help!!

                    Drink at least 64 oz of water a day.

                    I think it mentions somewhere to stay away from caffeine. I have no desire to stop drinking my morning coffee and I have been drinking coffee every AM.. I would recommend skipping coffee/caffeine during the afternoons and night.
                    During the day I will drink water or decaffeinated unsweetened iced tea.
                    I think you could probably use those crystal light packages, but for me I'm staying away from artificial sweeteners. Sometimes I will squeeze a lemon into the water to give it some flavor. You could also drink those flavored seltzer waters (the unsweetened kinds) they generally have 0 calories and no artificial sweetener..

                    In general, I think it's best to also stay away from diet soda (even decaf) when dieting... I actually usually try to have a fountain diet coke on my cheat days.


                    Best of luck starting the diet! After the priming phase, it's not bad at all.

                      Thanks for posting that site too! I never heard of that plan, but am excited to try it.

                      So, I weighed in this morning and am disappointed. I actually gained .8 of a pound.

                      I've been wracking my brain all morning trying to think how that is possible and really don't get it. I followed the diet 99% perfectly this week, I drank my yucky protein shakes and I worked out 4 1/2 times this week, WTF

                      The only conclusion I can come to is that my body did not like the Hi GI/GL days, which was a big fear of mine.

                      So I don't know what to do. Traditionally, when dieting, I've always done better when I try to limit carbs, so I don't know if I should try option 2 or 3. I know I can't do the lo carb all week approach, I'll go crazy, but I think a combination of low carb and low gi/gl will probably do the trick.

                      Anyone have any advice?
