Weigh-In 12/19/12/Selling Walden Farms Products

Went to my weigh-in on Wednesday and lost 2 1/2 pounds bringing me to 142.5, just 7 pounds to Phase 2!  5 pounds more to loose in Phase 2 on top of that.
Also lost 1" in my waist!

My Walden Farms items came in this week, the BBQ sauce is sooo good, it tastes like the BBQ sauce on the shelf only that you are saving 200 calories, yahoo!  They also have new salad dressings, and I got 1 bottle of seafood sauce for the holiday knowing they are going to serve shrimp and I won't be able to have their cocktail sauce at least I can have mine and gain ZERO weight!!

Which brings me to another thing -
I love Walden Farms products so much that I am selling the items myself.on my home & garden online store, products will be on the site in 1 to 2 weeks.  Save 34 pounds a year by switching to just Walden Farms products.  Visit my store in the next week or so to buy them - also be sure to like my store when you visit and visit my Facebook company page: Kelly's Home Accessories and "Like" my page!

Weigh-In 12/12/12

Getting down there, almost done with Phase 1, I really can't believe it.  This food has been my lifestyle for about 6 1/2 months and I am just floored it is almost over, I only hope I can handle Phase 2 of the diet which is still a mystery as to what it entails right now, since I'm not there yet.  But once I know I'll let you know.

So yesterday's weigh-in 1 1/2 pounds, still losing slowly due to that pie in November, should be back on track next week (here's hoping).  But even though the pound loss wasn't big I did loose inches in my waist and hips - not easy to do this towards the end, so was happy to hear that!

Just 9 pounds till my goal weight, however they will be bring me down to 130, 5 pounds below my goal (135) because 5 pounds comes back anyways once you come off.  So not too far from now and then it is all about maintain maintain maintain.


Walden Farms - Has more than just dressings we can use, they have tomato sauces, alfredo sauce, BBQ sauces, Syrups and more.  You don't have to be condiment deprived on this diet so: Be sure to check out their website and stock up. or find the nearest store location to you.

Weigh-In 12/5/2012

I lost 2 1/2 pounds this week bringing me down to 146 with just 11 pounds to go, however they will be bringing me down to 130 because well you initially gain 4-5 pounds back in Phase 2 anyways so I have 16 pounds left really.  But I'm almost in Phase 2!
I also lost 1" off my waist this past week.

I've also been thinking about some foods out there, on what I'm going to be changing once I come off of Phase 1, I'm sure they will tell me but I have been researching and have pretty much come to the conclusion that I will be coming off of gluten for good (since this caused my anxiety issue in the first place).  I also am going to try and stay away from these foods having them only once every 3 to 4 months or when special occasions roll around -

No Soy
No Eggs
No Sugar (fruit is ok, but no artificial sugars especially fructose - the worst)
No Corn - this includes all corn byproducts if I can too.
No Peanuts - switching to Almond Butter if my dietitian says it is ok
No Gluten - which I'm staying away from anyways.
No Dairy - because honestly my stomach didn't feel too good when I ate it prior to this Ideal Protein diet.  Although I do love cheese but having it on special occasions is better than never.

Of course having it on special occasions is also a problem because it creates cravings, really bad ones too, that you just have to try and get through.  They can last from 3 to 7 days (depending on what you consumed) and when its over my body seems to be less stressed than it was when the cravings were going on.
During this time in the diet for about 6 months or so, I have certainly learned how to control said cravings, and am well disciplined in what I eat as well as choosing wisely, I only hope this will stick with me as I step in to Phases 3 and 4 and the rest of my life.

For now I'm just trying to reach Phase 2, so on to the next week!
