For everyone who is getting discouraged by smaller losses,... think back to before you were on the IP plan. For me, I had wanted to lose 13 pounds in 12 weeks (before a work/fun trip I had planned). This was me,...
12 weeks to lose 13 pounds
11 weeks to lose 13 pounds
10 weeks to lose 12 pounds
9 weeks to lose 14 pounds
Well, you get the idea. A week before, having lost no weight, I ended up just going out to buy new dress pants that fit and decided when I got home I was starting IP.
At least we are losing and even if the numbers are small, if we keep doing what we should be doing it will show up in how our clothes fit and eventually the scale.
I had my weigh in yesterday and was down 4.5 pounds and 9.5 inches,... but they measured my chest, waist, hips, each thigh, each arm and my neck. I am not sure how it is possible that I lost an inch off of my neck in a week. I don't think it's possible that is was sucking my neck in! :-)
Hang in there everyone - stay motivated!
