I was so tired of wearing black clothes, mostly dresses, for the past 4 years and longed to look on the outside the way i used to and knew was really "me"....especially since summer was coming. Like many others have experienced, someone made a comment offhand, not directed at me personally, but I took it to heart. I ran into an acquaintance who had already lost 15 lbs on IP and she knew of others personally who had also done so. I researched IP and made an appointment and waited to start until after I'd had a few "live it up" dinners. I didn't believe it would work (nothing else had) but it is working. I am so grateful for IP!
