How Often Do you weigh yourself?
Every morning before i jump in the shower. it is amazing how a simple choice like that midnight little snack can affect your result!

not sure how strict your diet is but i always make lemon butter for mine. it is just 50/50 of fresh lemon juice and butter (for one artachoke i would do 1/2 a cup each) after u steam it pull the leaves off and dip it in, the way you eat it is strip the "meat" off the inside of the leaves with your bottom teeth. when i steam it i just wait til i can easly pull a bottom leaf off with your fingers.
They have alterenitives for butter that will be a little healthier of coarse...enjoy!

how do you get rid of sodium from your body?
im on a liquid only diet and i forgot money one day for work and so i couldnt drink anything well with the diet only allowing me 200 calories a day i ended up not feeling well so i went to the on site clinic and they said i was severly dehydrated and they put me on a IV they gave me 2 liters (2 bags) worth
i asked the PA before they gave it to me and he said it will not cause you to gain weight, well it did a whole 8 lbs! i HAVE to lose 10 lbs in a week in order for the surgeon to do the surgery for me and i now only have 2 days left! i need to know how to pull all that sodium out of my body asap
any thoughts?
* the surgery is to remove my gallbladder- my unhealthy lifestyle caught up with me Sad

Calorie Bargain when hungry
exactly! And my choice would def. be the chicken broth over chicken noodle soup any day. I warm it up pour it in a coffee cup and it is so warm and takes the hunger way. just makes you feel warm and cozy Smile When people ask what im drinking i just say hot tea. - i get allot of voices when it comes to me and my diet LOL

Smile
