I'm new here but thought I would jump in and introduce myself.... I'm so glad to find this forum - It's soooo helpful to have others to talk with!
I did IP for 4 months last year and lost 40 lbs. didn't quite make it to my goal and got completely derailed before getting to phase 3 and 4... long story short - I'm back up 12 lbs and just starting IP again... this time for good.
IP worked amzingly well for me. I'm 48yo and couldn't get the weight to budge - and didn't have the will power either...
but on IP the cravings were just gone and I found it easier to follow than any other diet.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you guys!
