Definitely!Still drinking my diluted cran water because I like it and it helps make me drink all day. That ok on p2?
So someone said the only legal carb/bread on P2 is now the tortilla. Is this true? I only have the original Fat Flush book.
Haven't found any of those here on Maui.
Am going to experiment with adapting a yeast free spelt bread recipe. Sounds yummy, and believe the recipe will
be close to legal for P2. Definitely legal on P3.
Wendya, I just wanted to say that I love your energy and positivity It's a beautiful thing when the FF ideals just sort of 'click' for someone! You definitely have a good grip on the plan and how to use it as a sustainable lifestyle, AND you're very in tune with your body. Congrats! You'll be a great inspiration to others
Thanks Tink! The bread turned out wonderful, but I reacted to it, so on to the next version with coconut flour. Who need wheat?
Suerra - Mahalo (thanks) for the kudos. I'm just laughing that it's taken me 52 years to 'get it'. This isn't about what I can't have and depriving myself of things until I can 'return to normal'. This is about giving my body what it needs to be vibrant, healthy and strong. and Gee, if my body is vibrant, healthy and strong - so am I - emotionally, physically and spiritually! Oh it feels good to type those words! Along the way my body will reshape itself and heal many of the issues that challenge me at the moment.
Your words are those that would only come from someone that "gets it." Each day will now be a brand new awakening for you filled with wonder and bunches of incredible "aha" moments. And we are absolutely thrilled you have chosen us to share this special journey with you!
May these moments never stop!!!
Hello Linda. I am back. On July 28th you said, "Kathryn and Cheerful, how are you doing. Time to check in ladies." Well, I was happy to hear you say my name. I wish I had a good report for you. I had my week of company and did just as I though I would. Cooked up a storm and ate up a storm. Couldn't get back on the plan and then had more company come. My sister said I should tell everyone that the Inn is closed for one year. So, now I am so very sick of junk food, mainly sweets, that I could throw up. Right now they seem like the last thing I want to put in my mouth (or on my thighs).
I so badly want the will power that I had when I first started FF many years ago. I never ate a single thing that I was not supposed to eat for four months. It seems like whatever diet I am on, once I fail at it, I can't seem to make it work again. I know that FF is the best and works for me, so I don't want to think that it won't work again for me because I failed at it.
I have three more things going on this summer. I have to babysit my 5 and 7 year old grandchildren for a week, a three day camping trip with my daughter's family and my husband's sister will be coming to stay for a week. HELP!!
Can my, "12 weeks to a new me" start tomorrow. If I commit to writing in everyday and telling everyone how I have done, that may help.
What do you say?
Linda, I was not going to write on here again. I was going to give up....to embarrassed to say I failed. But when you asked about me by name, I decided to tell everyone the truth.....no matter how bad it hurt.

Someone once said that 'Failure is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.'
You can't fail unless you DON'T try.
I'm a newbie, but I want to say Welcome Home
Looking forward to getting to know you.
OK Wendy, thanks for your encouragement. I just got up and am telling myself not to have that cup of coffee that I want. The big problem with the coffee is that I put 1/4th coffee in the mug, 1/4th water and 1/2 milk....OH, I left out that I put 2 heaping teaspoons of sugar in it too. It is kinda like hot coffee ice cream when I get done. This sets me up for failure for the day. I am now going to get my hot lemon and water and follow that with cranwater with flaxseed.....I have to conquer each hour today one at a time. I can't think about the whole day all at once. I am struggling but if I can be strong for this first hour, I will then concentrate on the next hour. That sounds so bad, but that is where I am at!!!
Totally been there, done that. All I know is that this time around it's been easier. Routine helps, and having stuff on hand is a big lifesaver for me. And we're just human and changing habits is hard.
Next time you reach for that coffee - put your whey powder in it...way more yummy and not quite so far off plan.
It's been several hours since you posted...hope you have managed a few more "Wins" this morning.
I'll check in soon.
