I love that everyone is having wonderful losses with IP, 5 and 6lbs a week... I sure as heck need a few weeks of that too!!!
I started the "no meats" thing yesterday and no change in the scale yet ...hmph >
hehehe yes I am very impatient as I have a wedding to do! LOL
Maybe I wasn't heavy enough in the first place? although I've seen some of you who only wanted to lose 10 to 15 lbs get that results quick too... uh my body drives me nuts (can you tell I'm having one of those days? hahahaha)
Hope this week kicks it in the rear and gets things moving!
Just a thought for you deinekatze
You are 5"9' tall and I know from prior threads that you work out. I'm betting that your muscle mass is probably a little higher than most and you probably carry less body fat. Perhaps your losses are a little slower because this diet burns body fat and you are not starting out with as much?
I'm certainly not an expert, but I know my body tends to be "heavy" from muscle even when I am at a lower weight. I am 5"8' and I appear very thin even at 160 (which for some at the same height is very heavy).
I appreciate your posts and just wanted to let you know that you are looking great, and losses - even slower ones,
are losses that should be celebrated...from one impatient girl to another.
