That happened a lot, as most every week, I only lost 2 pounds (I'm in my early 60s, post menopausal and have some health issues with water retention - I'm not going to lose much faster). I couldn't handle being demoralized all the time. Oh yeah, she highly disliked this forum. She felt it was very destructive to someone on the program.
The forum can be your weekly accountability. Weigh each week. Report in to us. Ask us those questions you can't get answers for. The people on here are a wealth of knowledge and more than willing to help in every way they can. Those of us who've been on the program for awhile probably have experienced what you're wondering about or being bothered by.
It's unfortunate Ideal Protein doesn't monitor those who administer the program. It's such a great program. I would really encourage you to think about using the forum as your coach. Please don't give up and don't stay discouraged.
We're all here to help each other.
Molly - No one could have said it better, this forum is awesome for info, support, and anything you can think to use it for. I am fortunate that I have great coaches, they have all been on IP and understand and are more than willing to help. I can call them anytime during business hours with questions, but haven't really had to because I am always on here getting my info. I don't post alot but am always lurking...
. It is sad that some coaches don't really try to understand what they are selling...
. Keep coming to this site and you can't go wrong with all the great support here
