Hmm. I usually find this forum to be very supportive and understanding. I'm a little surprised that you're so quick to diagnose that it's "all in my head." I know what it takes to maintain a heathy weight. I've done it my whole life. My two IP experiences have been to lose baby weight. I do think a little tweak here and there make a diffence on this plan, that's why we are all very careful to read labels, figure out % from fat, etc to maintain the right balance for fat burning. I never said I was looking for anything "magical," just input on what may be making my experience this time different from my last. I have the willpower and strength to do this, thanks anyway for the warning.
