Oh Lisa I know that, IP is an entire life changing thing, a whole new way of thinking about food and eating. My coach has even said I'll be able to have my pop corn again.......chuckle, just not a whole bowl and not daily. I know that as well. I am here for the long haul and no rebooting. My mind is made up after years of yo-yo dieting to try to lose 20lbs, getting half way there, stalling and gaining back. The IP is the only diet, way of eating, that works for me. I've learned over the years that I have had a fairly healthy diet with lots of fruits and veggies and too many healthy whole grain carbs. The carbs were my down fall and all the natural sugars from the large quantity of fruits. I know that I can get back to them eventually, but not to the amount that I was eating.
