Default IP Chat - week of Apr 26 - May 2

Hey all - thought I'd start a new chat thread for the week...

To keep the moderators happy - maybe we should try to ask specific questions that we're expecting/hoping for multiple answers in separate threads... this will also help us find info on a question in one thread rather than scattered throughout multiple chat threads... just a thought.

thanks,
Teresa

WI for my 3rd week on IP 5lbs!!!!! Yay! I am shocked how well this works. I know I have said it before but it really does seem a little surreal. I keep thinking I am going to wake up and the scale will be up. But not today!


Yay for you too Jordanna!

well I have to share... ever been SO hungry you can't sleep? For some reason that was me last night! I could not help it!

I finally got up and took a teaspoon of peanut butter (it was what I found) and then was finally able to sleep.... What was that about?

I am in ketosis today so I guess I'm ok...although starving again.

Someone asked on the last thread about eating times. As a trainer I tell people within the first hour you are awake its best and then small meals every 3 to 4 hours BUT with IP we don't have that luxury... I notice that as soon as I have my morning shake I start being REALLY hungry, I can't go too long before another meal happens...

Thanks for the heads up!

Just placed an order... going with all non restricted (i.e. under 7 carbs) Hope they taste good!

I feel that way sometimes too. I drink my shake in the morning and about 10am I have my 2 cups of veggies. At noon, I eat my lettuce salad and then around 3 or so I have my lunch IP Packet. Dinner is around 6 and then I eat my snack around 8 or so. Spacing it out is really so helpful! Try it and see

Back on the wagon, but man am I draggin! It's like starting from the beginning! I can't believe I'm that sensitive to sugar/carbs that I'm having such withdrawal again after only two non-IP days!! Talk about learning a lesson the hard way. SIGH.

How do some people jump back and forth between IP and not without feeling so sick?

Just checking in to say that there is life after IP. I am into the maintenance phase and things have been going well. I started IP at the end of October and dealt with a lot of the very same issues as others. Boredom, finances, motivation and family support (good and bad). I stuck with it because I was determined that I was only going to do this once - even when I only lost 1 lb, i did lose. There's no way I was going to have those naysayers be right. I lost 50 lbs - that's 1/4 of my weight! I feel very different and clothes shopping is a joy - can't believe how small my clothes look when I hold them up. I have people that I haven't seen for a while and they don't recognize me - weird but true.

I did have a blow out weekend with drinks and lots of food (even had a dish of kraft dinner - sorry) and treats - I'm doing Phase 1 today to get back on track. I do know how to get back on track now - never used to and my blowout would have continued for days, weeks, months....decades.

My weight fluctuates a couple of pounds - there's the word out there that everyone gains back 5 lbs after this diet - don't know where that comes from - I haven't gained back and in fact if I watch what i eat for a couple of days, i'm back down. I think that you are really never over dieting - and you shouldn't be - we will always need to watch what and how we eat - I figure if i eat like i did before, i'll look like i did before too.

I'm only sharing to help motivate. There were lots of times on this diet that this board helped me to stay on track - hearing from others, their challenges and successes made me feel like i wasn't alone - support sure helps.

I completely second this, I'm only 2 weeks into Maintenance, but am having the same experience as you!!!!

mom22 and babs181 - Congratulations and great to know that the maintenance plan works!! I always hear the naysayers comment that I'll just gain it all back... some people are just so cruel.

Thanks Carla!!!

Mom22 and babs......thank you for the update, it is good to know what is ahead, and how great it can be. I have plenty of naysayers as well, but I think I will just silence them with results. I feel pretty darn good about my last 3 weeks

Haven't been on for a week or so. Progress is still really slow, but I finally got below 180. YaHoo!!!

Reunion is this weekend and really want to take off at least 5 lbs, but I only seem to lose 2 lbs a week. I'm being really strict, and I started walking 2 miles a day a week ago. I guess that is the best I can hope for with all the stress I've been under and my thyroid.

Thank you for posting your experience. It really helps to know that once I am done with my strick 6 weeks that I can relax once in a while without stressing about adding back 15 pounds from one or two days of carbs.

Hi everyone, I posted on the two day thread, but just found this weekly thread. Hope everyone has good numbers, and survived the weekend. I have good news, at my WI this morning I was down 6.2 pounds! All the salad and bootcamp living is paying off. Onederland here I come!
