  1. One of my best P2 Tips - Investment Cooking

    For me, a big part of healthy eating is planning ahead and never getting caught without a quick meal on hand. As the saying goes, "Fail to plan, plan to fail." I learned the term "investment cooking" years ago when I was a Pampered Chef consultant. The idea is that you invest a few hours doing meal prep and end up with several ready-to go-meals. When I'm in P2 I shop on Saturdays and cook on Sundays. Yesterday I spent the morning cooking a big pot of chicken broth, curry chicken, ...

  3. Another Newby! Day 1, Round 1, Loading Phase

    Hi Everyone,

    I am totally scared to do this but like everyone else, I am willing to do what it takes to be skinny again! I just had my second child last July and the weight just hasn't come off. After my first kid, I was actually skinnier than I was pre-baby, but my second, totally different story. My "normal" weight hovers between 145-150 (I am 5'8'', muscular build). As of this morning I was 176 and am just looking to get back to what is normal for me. I just started

  6. Seventeenth day of P3

    172.2 today - a little on the higher end but still okay. I tried something new yesterday and it didn't seem to like me. Not sure which it was though so I'll have to try them seperately and see which one it was or both. This is my 60th blog post! Can't believe I've been doing this for just about 2 months. I'm both looking forward to P4 and starting a new round as well but I still have 4 days of P3 left to finish. I think I'm gonna finish very strong with a lot of solid protein and get those ...

  8. Darnit! day one and you would think after 2 rounds I'l be prepared!

    Man, I thought I was going to just breeze into this round...N-O-T...

    I had my menu written and worked early this morning to get my orders done, go downstairs and get ready to make my chili for the next few days.... ddduuuurrr would really help had I gotten the 'whole' list.

    Had my grocery list folded over and 1/2 my stuff is on the other side.

    Lesson learned... having all your meals pre-made for about a week really helps.
    I 'usually' have my chili ...

  10. Round 4.2 - P2 - Day 8

    Mon 18 - Jun - 2012

    207.8 ~ Down 2.2 ~ Total Losses 7.2 ( pre-load)

    Week 1 of P2 is done and it flew by fast. For the last 2 days I was in Eggland/ No losses but then no gains either. I only gained 2 lbs after loading which is the smallest loading gain I have had considering that I chose to load for 3 days instead of 2 upon the advice of the book "Weighloss Apocalyse". It is probably a good thing that I do not have much ...
