It's going pretty good Gem - how about with you?
I'm down another pound - or almost - I don't like to pay
too much attention to ounces and just average down.
Feeling more optimistic about losing now, for sure.
I'll catch ya later.

Have a great trip Gem! Check in if you can. LOL rice and beans. I like the idea of being a vegetarian but I'd be a fat, farting mess. I hear great things about Costa Rica - sounds like fun.
Bon voyage!

i feel pretty good. back in town i am kinda bummed but i'm trying to stay active. right now i might have just over eaten my egg frittatta. i bought an icecreammaker and i ordered suzanne sommer's ice cream mix. i'm about to make that tonight
it's almost level one but i really want icecream

atleast i have not eaten nujts.... i need to get down to 135.. i'm not sure about today what i weigh but yesterday i was 137

Hey guys I am back from Costa Rica! It was really hard to stick with the plan while I was away, not because I was in "cheat mode" it was just basically the food choices, and the times that we had meals. For example breakfast buffet with beautiful fruit, but I didn't have the luxury to eat my fruit,wait an hour and then eat a meal. So I tried to keep my calories in check, avoided most alcohol and really didn't snack. My TOM started today (great coming home gift) and I am up about 6 pounds. Back on the tight rope now ladies!!! hope you have all been doing well!

today i weighe din at 136 yester day i was 134.5

i started up my bikram yoga and sweating my ass ooff.. i feel weak when i practiced dancing last nite...
do i need to eat some starch/carb meals
the book says we don't need to eat starches
like u can have pro/fat meals for every meal

this morning i tried a carbo/veggie meal for the first time since i 've started sommeresizing, i had wholewheat tortilla with tomatoes/salsa, salt, and fat free ricotta cheese

it was hardly filling and i prolly wont do it agin cuz i had to wait 3 hours before i can eat protein and such. annyoing

plus since u can't eat fat w/ starches/breads, u can't ev en have olive oil or veggies cooked in butter. what are u supposed to cook your veggies in then? i guess u can't!
i dont' like cereal and non fat milk. i think i'l lresort to eatin gjust the pro / fats

how is everyodoing going??!?!

i'm still dancing, i have a battle tonite, i'm worried about my energy levels since i was sick last week for like a whole week w/ flue etc, i'm starting to feel it again though....
my c lothes fit better!!!!

i'm sold to sommersizing!

has anyone made deserts yet?
the icecream mixes are sooooo good but sold out!!

does anyone know if coconut oil i sokay to cook in, i know she said coconuts are not good to eat. they are bad food combo!

I think coconut oil is a no, no. But hey we all know now that
it's good for you. You could give it a shot and see if it has
negative effects regarding your weight or digestion.

I used to do Bikrams - then I injured myself - so now I
do a less strenuous form cause the injury always comes
back. I let the instructor push me and they should never
do that. Your practice is just that, YOURS.

I tried a carb meal. Had the same reaction as you - starving!
Montignac says you can have a little olive oil with your
carb meals. I tried a low fat cottage cheese with some
whole grain crackers. Not very tasty. Then I tried some
soba noodles with vegies - not very fun either.

I won't be trying desserts unless it's a small one that just
needs minimal sweetening from Stevia. I don't use any other
artificial sweetners.

keep in touch

I Love the summersize books, and did lose weight real fast a few years back on her plan, maybe I should try that again? I am having a hard time sticking to anything else. so frustrating!. her books are motivating (cause she is sooo pretty) lol, and for some reason it was easy for me to stick with,
if I remember right I lost about 8 pounds the first week and continued to lose pounds fast , but ofcourse like all weightloss programs you lose the more weight in the beginning of the program. I need to buy her books again because the ones I read a few years back were library books so I had to give them back and , thankyou for this thread because I had completely forgot about the summersize plan. I think I am gonna try it again. I will let you know how I do on it this time!. Love Lisa
