I have done it successfully on my own....you have to be motivated and educated. READ. Read. read. Know everything, and if you don't know it, ask. Truly these 3FC folks are the best darn coaches you will find. Just make sure you stay motivated. Many a "dieter" have tried IP...but remember, this is not a diet, it is a way of life! Good luck!
