Hi everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself since I am brand new to IP and to this forum. I am finding all your posts so helpful already and look forward to getting to know some of you. I am excited about this journey and feel like this might really work for me . . . not going to lie though - I am so hungry right now!

It gets better, I wish you the best on your journey:)

Hope your first week isn't too rough! Even if it is, it will all be worth it.
Congrats on starting your first day!

Welcome. So glad you are joining us. There are a bunch of awesome people on this site. I found having a pickle was helpful during the first week when I was hungry. Hang in there! It's so worth gettting past the first few days/week. You can do it!

Good luck! :broc:

You are allowed up to 4 packets a day in the first week if needed. The hunger and carb withdrawal the first week are so worth the results!

I started not very long ago. The first 4-6 days were rough, but worth it. You'll feel so much better after day 7 :)

Welcome! Hopefully a month from now, you will share my opinion that doing IP is the best thing you EVER decided to do!! Good luck!!

Welcome! I just started on Sunday and I am also a newbie to the forum! Although I wasn't really hungry, I did get a raging headache! I'm still not hungry but the headache has gone away. Good Luck!!!

I am on my third week too. The first week was a bit rough but once you are through it you will be so happy you decided to do IP. I know I am :carrot:
