  • Happy Hump Day! Remember that your palate is fully capable of changing according to the foods you choose to eat. Your cravings will noticeably subside, and foods you used to enjoy will soon lose their luster. Nothing is better than how the right foods make you feel - that feeling lasts and tells your brain to crave those foods instead. Veggies are by far the most satisfying thing for me to eat! I literally feel more alive during and long after!

    What are your favorite veggies?? And what do you not crave anymore??🚫

Can’t like this post enough! Thank you!

Sautéed peppers and onions. I don’t crave Doritos as much as I used to. Omg And cherry tomatoes too. I used to not like cherry tomatoes at all and then I started dipping them in hummus Just to eat them and now I eat them plain like they’re going out of style. My husband started planting the cherry tomato plant because I was buying cherry tomatoes at the store every other day.

PERK UP YOUR MINDSET AND MOTIVATION

Happy Tuesday, friends! So I’ve been reading your comments, and it seems like some of you have gained over the weekend - but hey, know that it’s ok and expected to fall off for a moment and you can totally still reach your goal.

Here’s a tip that works and will keep your week positive and strong: Focus on 2 lbs at a time!🙌

For many people, expectations about weight loss are way too high. If you know that you have a lot of pounds to lose, and the scale is not moving or goes up a few ounces, you go nuts. Bring it back down to focusing on two pounds at a time, and it will start to move. If you’re focused on too big of a number, it’s going to completely overwhelm you. Focus on two pounds—or even two ounces—and it will give you more momentum to realize the scale is actually moving.

For more resources to help you through this even easier, go to www.2Bmindset.com and watch: “Help, I’m at a Plateau”, “Help, the Scale Went Up”, and “Mindset Makeover”!! It’ll help. I promise you, you got this! 😉

That’s my mantra and I lose way better that way

I hit my goal fairly early but I know I had a lot of bloat at the beginning of the bet. I actually lost weight over the weekend but gained about half a pound on Monday lol. Not sure why but I'm continuing to stay the course and not let it bother me unless I see a steady increase. There are so many things that go into the number on the scale, but I've learned to just trust the process and keep going! I was in the best shape of my life after having one baby, so I know I can get there again after having #2.

Are there any companies that have prepped or ready made meals that follow 2B? I’ve used Blue Apron, Hello Fresh, etc in the past, but the meals were not inline with plate it. I love so many of your 2B recipes, so I’m looking for easier/faster ways to get them.

Great call today! Thank you Ilana!
So helpful. Happy Mothers Day weekend, we got this!

I am with @Suzy Q on the tree nut allergies and @Angie G on post menopause. What are good protein snacks besides cheese and eggs? What can post menopause women do to help the number in the scale move quicker?

Rina31

It would not let me join the zoom call. It said Meeting capacity has been reached.

Probably just retaining some extra water. Check your salt intake too.

  • What are peoples “go to” moves in this scenario?!

    Dinner & done early tonight - feeling really hungry though. Tea just wasn’t cutting it. 😞

    I opted for a large carrot and mixed up a tablespoon of PB2 to satisfy my cravings . Definitely a smarter choice and opted not to hit the chocolate tonight - challenging to be dinner and done sometimes when you have a long day and feeling like you need a little more later.

Dessert tea and distracting myself. Focusing on reading

Sheena I.

I make a batch of protein pancakes at the beginning of the week and have one of those with some American nut dream butter on it. It takes care of my hunger pains and takes care of my sweet tooth.

How are people getting through the afternoon cravings? Im not hungry but either when i get home from work or between 2-4 are my weak points. Currently distraction is what helps me, ive been doing afternoon/after work workouts and that seems to distract me and buy the time needed to make it to dinner. Really curious what others are doing?

thanks everyone, these are all really helpful. I think especially seeing if more lunch protein is needed. I'm vegan so most my protein is plant based and perhaps mixing beans & tofu would be a good idea.

Hazel Rain

Also Ali M. I love your #1- if i'm not hungry for veggies then i'm not hungry. this is SO true for me. I only want carbs and fat in the afternoon.
