Thanks Ladies! I will definitely keep you all posted, and I think you're so right about the planning, if I don't plan, I will have a hard time finding the right components to eat to follow the plan.

I never thought I'd say this, but I'm so sick of all the crap I've been eating the past few weeks, I can't wait to get started!

OK final weight in (for the priming phase)

 

I'm a bit disappointed. I did not lose 1 ounce since last week. I have followed the diet to a T, no cheating.... I did so well the first 2 weeks, I was hoping to lose at least 2 pounds this week but NOTHING. I did weigh myself in the middle of the week and had GAINED. At least today I am back to where I was at last week's weigh-in

 

Did anyone experience 0 weight loss for the 3rd week of priming? I'm worried about the cheat day and that I will gain back.......

 

This is NOT a good way to start my cheat day sad.gif

Finzup - I didn't lose anything for my first high gi/gl week and I think it's because my body does not process carbohydrates properly. I mean, I had two low gi/gl days this week (mid-week, the camel hump way if you're wondering) and I haven't lost anything since last week. I am going back to the all low carb set up, I'll probably start losing again. Some people's bodies just don't do well with carbs and I happen to be one of them. Sorry you're so frustrated. hug2.gif

Hm.... I think I will try it as written next week for my first week of core and then if I stay the same or god forbid gain weight I will do something like low carb, low carb, low gi, low gi, low carb, low carb....

 

I did lose a total of 13# in priming but it was all in the first 2 weeks..... I shouldn't complain just yet :)

 

 

OK on to cheat day!

 

I had a plain bagel toasted well done with plain cream cheese and an iced coffee with cream for breakfast.

 

I didn't eat anything until I got to my engagement party. I ate there, though!

We were there from around 1:30 - 7:30pm and during that time I managed to eat:

 

- several pieces of bread dipped in tuscan bean dip (amazingly good)

- veggies in roasted red pepper dip

- sesame breadstick (or two of them maybe...)

- sangria (i know, alcohol is a no-no but at least sangria is not 100% booze, it's mixed with some other stuff)

 

That was the appetizers...

Main dishes there was a buffet and I sampled

- roasted sweet potatoes with molasses (omg, yum)

- chicken marsala

- veal & peas

- tortellini with prosciutto and cream sauce

- salad with italian dressing

 

(I only had a little bit of each).

 

Then afterwards, CAKE!! YUM. Marble cake with buttercream icing. Oh and I had half an Italian cookie.

 

After I got home I opened one of my gifts and it was a very LARGE box of fancy schmancy handmade chocolates from L.A. Burdick... I did have a few of those too. I just HAD to. I wouldn't trust anyone who could resist these chocolates.

 

I put them in the fridge. I will eat a few next cheat day....

 

 

All in all I had a good cheat day .. next time it won't be a "party" day so I will hopefully eat more "food food" rather than sweets and desserts. I still am SO craving fish and chips..... next week!!

 

Best of luck to everyone else this week!!!

finz, congrats on the loss! And your cheat day sounded really yummy, especially since I just finished Day 1 !!

 

I've been pretty hungry today, I think it's just because I've been eating so much the past few weeks that my stomach needs to shrink back down. Hopefully tomorrow I won't be as hungry.

 

I've got a ways to go before my first cheat day!

So I have been looking over this for the last few days, and I keep thinking of the meals I can make. Im totally stumped. Did anyone else have a hard time making a menu up the low carb days? I guess its more snack wise.

 

Erin: Just emailed it to you wink.gif

Low Carb Meals

breakfast:

2 egg whites + 2 turkey sausage links (I use banquet frozen)
2 egg whites + 2 bacon (I use the very thin pre cooked kind . they are low fat.. if you use regular bacon I would only use 1 slice)
2 egg whites + 2 pcs canadian bacon
1 whole egg + 2 egg whites
cottage cheese + ham


Lunches, Snacks

1 chicken sausage (sams club asiago/spinach) + walnuts
1 chicken sausage + cheese stick
full fat cottage cheese (that counts as both protein + fat)
low fat cottage cheese + almonds or walnuts
low fat cottage cheese + cheese stick
piece of chicken breast + celery stuffed with cream cheese
deli roast beef + goat cheese wrapped in lettuce
deli turkey + goat cheese + red peppers
can tunafish + mayonnaise (over greens or plain)
1 egg + 1 egg white + low fat mayonnaise (over greens or plain)
1/2c chobani 2% plain greek yogurt + chopped walnuts (gives it a nice crunch)



Suppers
chicken breast + mozzarella cheese + tomatoes + string beans
chicken breast +low fat cheddar + thin bacon + spinach
salmon + grilled zucchini
Grilled chicken or shrimp Caesar salad - no croutons, dressing on side
Chicken/Beef kabobs - with mushrooms, onions, peppers, zucchini
Pan seared scallops + garlicy spinach
turkey mignons (from sams club.. basically a white meat turkey breast peace surrounded by bacon -- it looks like filet mignon) + string beans



The options are endless .. mix and match!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
