Thanks for sharing this AmyonIP. I cheated one day over X-mas and I'm still paying for it. I didn't gain weight but my body has not reacted to IP the way it use to before that day. I have struggled for three weeks with cravings, hunger and days when it was not all 100% IP (small cheats I guess). Today I had a hard time during meetings at school. To top it off I'm coming down with a cold, my body aches and I have not been able to eat anything since lunch. I have just been drinking water and I think I'm going to try to have an IP bar. I did not start phase 2 today. But that's okay. I need to regroup and get my mind back into 100 % commitment mentality. My last visit to the clinic will be Saturday where I plan to get my last WI and messurements (too expensive and bad coaching). I'm still going to do IP but the next phases on my own with alternative products and the help of the best coaches in this forum.
