Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Jennifer, and after hearing about IP, I have been researching like a crazy person. I found this forum and it gave me that push to know I could do this and it will work for me. I'm excited and yet nervious!!! I had my meeting today, got everything I needed for the first week, and left with a warm fuzzy feeling of "this is it, it will work for me, just follow the plan".

I'm sure I will have lots of questions. My goal right now is to keep it simple and just follow the plan as written. Later when I'm more comfortable with it I will try some of the different ways to get creative with my food.

Thanks so much for your push without you even knowing it!!:)

I had a GREAT first day yesterday!!!! So far today I feel really good. Almost got my first 32oz of water in. Waiting on my 15 month old to get up so I can use the blender to make a shake.

I have been mentally preparing myself for not feeling well today and tomorrow, but so far so good!!!

And I agree about everyone on here being motivational!!!
