I started IP March 1, 2012 and phased off mid October. At my lowest, I'd lost 132lbs in that seven and a half months.

I phased off for a bit for a variety of reasons and am back on phase one to finish the job. I anticipate that it will take me until the end of February (fingers crossed!!!) to get to my final goal which will be a loss of 153lbs in one full calendar year.

First run at it I started 8/14/12 - lost 20 lbs in 5 weeks. I maintained through October, November, December and am now trying to lose an additional 10. It will be a slower loss this time (down 4 lbs from restart on 1/2) because I don't have a lot to lose, and I've been on antibiotics. I'm hoping by Valentines to be down to 140.

A new born calf and a small bale of hay!

OR

depending on the day (cause I can and usually get the beginning of fun day down a few lbs lower then my goal) the average american woman.

OR

A fashion model (117 lbs at 5'11") and a 3 gallon tub of premium ice cream (24 lbs) - I think that's my favorite one because they go well together I believe :D

5.5 10-lb bowling balls and at least that much volume. Started 8/2/12, had a stall around the holidays but back 100% OP now.

I lost a similar amount of weight on another protein drink plan about 10 years ago, but on IP, I'm TWO SIZES SMALLER at the same weight. My coach has had the same experience, and I know another person on IP who noticed the same thing. IP preserves your muscle mass. I have about another 35 lbs to go, but I feel so much leaner already.

I started Aug 22, 2012 and have lost 36.5 lbs. That's with over a month of stalling in September and now an additional month plus of stall since early December. I am within about 5 lbs of my initial loss goal or 15 lbs from my revised. I will be on vacation at the end of the month where I'll be eating good but not stupid so with a plan devised by my WI person and I, am stepping thru Phase 2-3 in time for maintenance during the vacation. I start Phase 1 and possibly boot camp style Feb 6. All my hair will probably fall out then!!!

I was close to 190 in late 2008 but after having my son and eating small frequent meals to curb nausea I went down to 160 about a month after having him. I found myself at around 152 in late November 2012, so I have lost 20 lbs since then. Been kinda stuck the last couple of weeks.
If I add the couple times I have had to lose weight from around 185 to 126 once and from around 187 to 132 now I have lost over 100 lbs. I better stay focuses and not stray this time. Good job everyone!

I'm a slow loser, but also only had 25 lbs to lose altogether.

Lost 20 lbs in 10 weeks.
Took 2 week break at holidays.
Down another 1.5 lbs in week 11.

It's a great program - stick with it and you will see success.

I lost my first 12 lbs from Thanksgiving to New Year's, using a slow carb diet. Then I started IP on 1/2/13 and have lost 13 more lbs in just two weeks. I am sold on IP.

Everyones' losses are so inspiring!

Half again: Your transformation is amazing!!

Today when I stepped on my home scale I am down 60.2 lbs. Slightly more than at my clinic because my first weigh in at my clinic was on a Sunday at 8 am and I didn't start IP until Monday and in that one day I managed to weigh 4 lbs more.

I have been on for 12 weeks. I can't believe that. I pulled out my sheet to recount because that seemed impossible - - but 12 weeks it is.

I am so glad I found IP and even happier that I found this awesome group to share my journey with.

Lately people have stopped with the negative comments (finally!!) and started asking what I am doing to loose this weight. 2 people at work know others who have done the diet and are maintaining their weight loss.

I feel hopeful for the first time in my life that a healthy weight is possible for me.

Have a great op day!

Onmyway!!! Congrats! Those are some great results along with all the people on this thread. I really love the support here. It's funny how people in life seem to be negative at first about weight loss and then later they are intrigued at what you are doing.

I would like to weight myself, but I am sticking to Lisa's advice and staying off my own scale. It will be all the better when I am surprised at my first weigh in!

I am totally bummed out reading all these loses (but congratulations to you all!!!!). I guess my body's excuse is less to lose, longer to lose it???? I slog along week after week and am getting pretty darn disgusted with the scale.

Well thank you - though the losses have definitely slowed up. I just had so much at the start to loose it came off very fast indeed. Everyone is so different on how their body's respond to weight loss. I can say I have been 100% on program. No licks, tastes, samples, etc of off program things, even thru the holidays.

Half again and Lisa32... I've looked at both your profile pics and am amazed at your progress. I love seeing before and afters. well done!

Thank you! I remember starting the program and joining here looking at others before and after and how it helped me.

Hooray! I love it when people finally get on board and think "hey, that really is working"! I found out about IP from seeing someone else's success and asking him how he did it. There is a big difference from some who ask to poke holes in the program and those who would like to understand and possibly start themselves for sure. Sometimes it's hard to tell which they are after. I am rather vague with people until I figure out what they are really asking about. I hear IP (clinics anyway) may start advertising - which will make this a more understood program I think or at least heard of by others. Right now my doctor's office, or others who ask just don't understand IP - until I say "like Atkins only less all the fat" and the light bulb comes on for them :-) it's not a real good description but they have at least heard of Atkins and usually know someone who has done that.

Rock on guys and gals! We can do this!
