I'm here today to relay that same message to you and anyone else who struggles along with us.
Thanks, KareVT. That's exactly what I'm thinking - nip it in the bud now while it's manageable.

I know just what you mean! Foods I lived on and loved for 11 months now are not tasting and smelling the same. Wonder why that is.

Started off good, eating well, exercising 6-weeks pp, then pulled a muscle 2x and have blobbed out since then. I can't do P1 as I am nursing, but am going to P3-ish and testing out my muscles to ramp up workouts. Cheers and prayers for a healthy 2014!
Welcome back, LizRR! You were such an inspiration to me when I first started IP back in July 2012. You reached your goal shortly after I started and I loved reading your posts about staying on track and all of your IP recipes. You're the one who taught me to make the veggie purees which made the soups tolerable for me. Your before and after pictures and your "what are you wearing today" posts really inspired me to keep going, which I did until I reached my goal in June! Congrats on the birth of your daughter and good luck getting back on track!

Happy New Year to everyone!
