I honestly get pure enjoyment and excitement planning my cheat day each week.  I know, we aren't supposed to plan for it, but honestly, I love food.  I need to plan what I'm going to eat! lol

I think he means "plan" like go to the store and buy cheetos on Thursday in anticipation for Saturday.  I plan for sangria and pizza and nachos religiously! 

 

Your luck your husband does it with you Lisa.  Mine kept asking me if I wanted a sandwich or spaghetti on Sunday - I was like "what part of low carb do you not understand?"!!!  He was just being helpful - lol

my FI is very supportive too which helps IMMENSELY.  he still eats his rice/potatos/bread along side with whatever meal we are having (and i just have the meat and veg) so we still get to eat together.

i dunno ladies....the scale is not moving!  i have not lost a pound since the end of that first week (and am actually up two pounds!), and am now into the third week.  i have not strayed an ounce from that program and am eating good healthy food.  what gives??!

 

it is getting frustrating.  i haven't even had a cheat day yet and i am gaining :(  ...if i don't start losing again soon, i may have to abandon this program and try to find something else.  BOO!

BOOO!  That's weird that you lost so much and then it stopped.  Maybe you need a cheat day to get that fat burning back up.  I forget exactly what his science is, but the cheat day is supposed to help.  I say have a cheat day!  Plus you'll be more motivated afterwards.

i was thinking the same thing.  my body may be stockpiling right now due to low caloric intake (i think i am eating between 1200-1500 calories a day)...and i think a good cheat day will get me revved up again, but i think i will wait until friday or saturday.

 

thanks for your input, amy!

i think that's a good idea too Pam - did you do it?  You also may not be eating enough, sometimes you need to eat more to gain!

 

Well, I am now down 16.8 lbs.  I am so freakin' happy!!  However, this weekend was a total bust.  On friday, we hosted a BBQ, which was fine because it was our cheat day.  Sat came around and my uncle had a corn roast - hence, another cheat day.  Yesterday started off great but I think FI and I were so exausted that we didn't care and cheated a lot! :(  Back to normal today but I'm so worried that I messed things up.  GRRRRRR!!!!!!!

wow lisa, way to go!

 

I had my first (scheduled) cheat day on Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed it!  I know you aren't supposed to weigh yourself the day after a cheat day, but I did (of course), and my weight was actually the same the next day which I took to be a good sign.

 

I was back on the wagon yesterday and am being very good.  The scale still isn't budging, so we will see what the next couple of weeks hold.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
