Cheat Your Way Thin diet ~ **guide available to download in post #45**

Recommended Posts

Lisa - I would def. wait until after your vacation. It does take alot of planning all your meals (I find anyway) because you have to make sure that you have a protein, fat, carb (whatever it calls for) at each meal/snack.

 

Like I said, so far, so good. I sorta cheated and stepped on the scale this morning (you're not supposed to weigh yourself every day) and I had lost 2 pounds from yesterday. That made me SUPER excited! That and the fact that I feel good too!

 

Good luck everyone and make sure you post your results or problems, this is fun!!! cheesy.gif

Dear LisaLoo,

 

I would so love for you to send me the link or whatever information you have on this diet. I think I need "Best Destination Wedding Forums For Dummies", because I can't figure out how to PM people. It took me forever just to figure out what "PM" meant. :0)

Lisa - I'm so glad to hear that you and your FI are ALREADY experiencing so much success with this and feeling better...that's huge! I will admit that the toughest part is the first three weeks and the low carb days but you get used to it after a while. My favorite days (other than cheat day obviously lol) is the low gi/gl day. It pretty much allows you to have a nice mix of fat/protein/carbs and I feel satisfied with the food I eat on those particular days. You're probably having more BMs because of all the veggies (as you said) which is probably more fibre than you're used to getting before you started...that's ok though!

 

I will also say that I plan and prepare all of my lunches/snacks for work for the week every Sunday afternoon after I go grocery shopping. This is a huge help. Once you get in the habit of preparing all of your food in advance, you are much less likely to "boredom eat" or graze in your kitchen if you know what I mean. The best part is, it usually takes me less than an hour to make all of my lunches for the week.

 

You're welcome about the protein shakes btw, did you go to Costco already? :)

hey! I can't remember the name of it but they sell a few different flavors/brands at Costco. I usually get the Vanilla flavor in this huge container that costs $30 or so. It's protein powder so you have to mix it with water and ice in a blender. :)

Kathy - We just picked up some mix at a grocery store but I'm sure it's either cheaper at Costco or Wal-mart even. I agree with you about preparing meals ahead of time. We've taken the time after dinner to make our lunches for the next day. It's something I enjoy that we're both doing together - it's nice.

 

I also wanted to say that I'm even more so motivated because the FI is helping me. I think that it really helps to have someone else doing it with you, experiencing the same things. So I would definitely suggest sharing the experience with your significant other!

 

I must say one more thing regarding cottage cheese. I noticed that it was there quite often on the list and I was like hmmmm did I ever eat some? For some reason I didn't think that I liked it, but we bought some last night and I tried a spoonful, not too bad. So the FI puts some in my lunch today and I'm eating it this morning for a snack and got to my 3rd spoonful and almost barfed!! sick.gif Apparently, I CAN'T eat cottage cheese! lol

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
