From day to day we have many bumps and dips in the road...People can be so helpful or can totally sabbatoge your program and your lives. This is when you have to make this about you its not about doing for this for anybody but you. Your health, your peace of mind, confidence to get out and live, the will to make your life better and in doing this so many doors open up for you. The way people treat you because believe it or not you act differently and you have the power to do this for you.

Lets make 2012 about changing our lives for the better...This journey is about you. Its so worth it....

Morning Everyone
Today is TOM day 2 and have to go weigh in today at a different clinic as mine is closed until the 3rd but I have a feeling that I gained significantly over this past week. UGH. I feel bloated and gross and my face is extremely dry. Not enough water I am sure. It feels like sand paper.
Wish me luck today and to all who are weighing in today I wish you luck. Oh and I have to buy my multi, and potassium as I ran out four days ago and haven't found anything remotely close. I have been taking prenatal multi, my IP calcium and no potassium so who knows what that is going to do to this old body???? Fingers crossed. I will post my results this afternoon when back. Bebe

Good Morning All! I was looking for the "ip alternatives" thread and only found one that was closed. Can someone point me in the right direction or teach me how to look around the site. I am pretty new here and I am not all that computer literate. Any help will be appreciated.

There are several members here who use alternatives, but not a designating posting area that I know of. We all just post in here. If you've read through the older post already and have some questions, post them here. We are all familiar with the alternatives and hopefully can help you out.

Good morning all! The scale was down 2 pounds today. I will be glad to get rid of this bloated feeling. I have to believe Dr. Tran in that our metabolism changes with this diet for the better. After all I ate on vacation I expected things to be worse.

Jellymay , congrats on losing over a 100 pounds and of course, go show off your new body and enjoy all the compliments.

Lindac, you were in the right spot! Closed just means you can't add any more posts to the thread, but do read all 500 posts and you will get a wealth of information. If you have questions, just post on the daily thread here.

Wuv, You have a great day too and enjoy your boys that are home from college. Are you still cooking up a storm for them? How is your mom doing on maintenance?

Not much going on, freezing cold here. Have a few errands to run but otherwise i just plan on relaxing the next few days until i go back to work on tuesday.

Have a great OP day everyone!

Happy new year everyoneWasn't yesterday crazy, I was downtown for the first part of the day and by the time I drove to the Airport the roads were so much better and no accidents. Couldn't believe it when I got home and my street and driveway crunched all the way in... couldn't even scrap that stuff off the driveway... going to be warm again monday and tuesday... okay at least warm for Edmonton...

Bebe ~ I have the same feeling except I have started my TOM (yet) but I can tell its' coming. I weighed myself last night and it doesn't look like any loss but I am bloated so that figures. I just keep telling myself that this week will pass because I have been 100% OP so I know next week will be better! ;)

Hello all.......I have to say, I am setting my 'brain' into a mode that I am very excited about getting back on track... TOM is visiting...and I know by past experience, that plays a numbers game.... plus the holidays, irish creme, red wine etc......sigh...such is life.... to not lose total control of our eating habits will be a life long challenge...but so worth it. I hope everyone has a wonderful New Years, and that 2012 will be the best yet!

Wuv, You have a great day too and enjoy your boys that are home from college. Are you still cooking up a storm for them? How is your mom doing on maintenance?

I am still cooking like crazy, Brandon is leaving to go back to college on Friday:( classes start on Monday. He will have the weekend to get set up for the next semester that way. He said he must of gained all the weight I loss while he was here though....lol...He said when he starts back up in the gym next week he will lose it though. I have been cooking a lot of cabbage, showing him different ways to cook it and he said he will do that when he get up there(yea right).....lol

Mom is doing well, she is staying between 145-150, she weighs herself daily and if she gets to that 150 she is back on phase 1.....lol...We went shopping in her closet for me when I was there over Christmas. I am fitting in the clothes she wore when she started, so I now have a few shirts to wear for the winter. Not that we will have much of one though its back in the 70's today!!

I like that "goal goal". Is it weird to not have a poundage goal? I'm looking to stay OP for 3 months so that my next bloodwork will be significantly better than the last 5 years. Lower blood sugar, lower cholesterol, and to top it off, lower weight! For me it's endurance, not pounds, although 16 pounds in 3 weeks is a nice bonus!

My goal goal would be to lose 60 pounds, but I don't want to set myself up for another "diet failure" if I don't make it. So I'm going for time instead. That's measurable and reachable.

I have been unable to get on this site, not even read this week as it has been so busy. I had to WI at home today as my coach is on holidays and I'm down :carrot: 3.2lbs :carrot:
Tomorrow is our daughter's Sweet 16th and we will be surrounded by food (again). I have stayed OP, no matter what anyone has offered me, nothing will shake me this year. It is so nice not to start this journey of weightloss on Jan 1st, instead I am already on my way down!
See you all in 2012!!

I would like to get to 200lbs, why? I don't know....guess I haven't been that size since high school. If I find that I look the way I want too before that then I will stop. When I hit 200lbs that will be 188lbs loss....almost HALF of my original weight. I already don't look like myself in some aspects so we will see what the next 4 months bring :)

Had weigh in #2 today, down another 2 pounds. Of coarse if I hadn't of cheated over christmas, (cheesecake, butter tars, mashed potatoes and gravy and dressing) oh but it tasted so good lol.....my weight loss would have been more. Guess should be thankful I didn't gain. But am back on track and OP. So can't wait to see what my next loss is. Hope everyone had a great holiday over Christmas and I wish you all the best in the New Year, here is to all of us for a healthier New Year and our new figures:carrot:

12-30-2011, 02:04 PM
Just came back from my weigh in. Another 6.4 lost over the holidays!! Total of 21.4! This was a two week weigh in due to coach being gone. Pretty proud of myself especially when she mentioned that most others at the clinic went off the plan for the holidays. This is just more motivation to keep on going.

Wuv- your stats are out of this world. It sure motivates me with having over 100#lbs to lose. So does everyone else's stats. In fact there are so many people on this board that are so helpful and motivating just by reading these threads. Thanks to everyone.
Happy New Year, New You.

I'm not sure you can do IP online. This program is done through a coach. You can probably do an alternative plan and have products delivered to your home. I would be causious about any medical conditions and doing a diet this extreme without consulting a doctor.

DanafromAustin
12-30-2011, 03:25 PM
Actually you can do it online if there isn't a coach near you. I know this because a friend of mine is doing it that way. The closest coach to her is a 30 minute drive, but with traffic it would be at least an hour drive if not more. She was set up with a clinic in Southern CA (she's in Northern CA). She places her weekly order through them and talks to her coach once a week over the phone. She also has to send them her weekly journal.

I know she found all of this information out by going on to the IP website.

Hi, my name is Becky and I am starting the IP diet sunday. Im excited and a bit nervous about failing. Im sure some of you out there can relate? Im excited to have found this group. I look forward to going on this journey with you all.

12-30-2011, 08:44 PM
You won't fail Becky if you're determined and stay OP. I've failed over and over on so many diets. I think Ideal Protein is different for several reasons. The weight drops faster so I'm more motivated seeing the progress. Also, ketosis helps reduce hunger and for the first time I'm able to avoid sweets even when at a party and everyone in the room is eating homemade cookies. Stick with the group and white knuckle the first week, it gets easier (then harder, then easier, etc.)

Hello to all. For some reason today has been rough for me. Not in the sense like I want to eat anything in sight, just the boredom with my salad and veggies. The puddings don't taste good anymore, I don't like the soups and I am feeling like I am really limited. I made corn casserole for my family (love that stuff) and didn't eat a bite but there was a small part of me that could have done it. I guess I have to realize I am a food addict and for the rest of my life I will be fighting temptation. I feel somewhat bloated and hormonal. Just a blah day I guess. Tomorrow is a new day! Plus no cheating so I have no guilt to work out tomorrow. Date night tomorrow with my hubby. I am going to get a hamburger and veggies. Seems like that is my staple for the evening most nights. Anyways, hope everyone is staying OP and doing well overall. Almost 2012. Wow, hard to believe!

Lmflora
12-30-2011, 09:43 PM
Hello ladies and gents, well.. We had the 3rd weigh in today. It was worse than I thought, I guess the holiday cheating was more excessive than I thought. :( Daughter and I both gained, I am too embarrassed to fess up to our numbers. :^: But we have been OP 100% since we got off the airplane on Tuesday. There is no wiggle room on this diet!! I think all the folks who are stariting their diet after the holidays probably have the right idea. :dizzy:

Kudos to all of you who stayed OP during this trying time!
We learned our lesson. I am hopeful for a loss next week.

Happy New Year!
Cheers
