I haven't cheated AT ALL! I've been drinking my water, exercising... and still, I WON'T LOSE!

I have people (non-IP people) telling me I need to take a break, to reset my metabolism. Or that I need to eat some fat, to restart loss.

But I DON'T WANT TO DO THAT!

I *am* at 20% weight loss since I started IP... maybe a plateau is normal now? Maybe my body is resetting, and if I just wait, it will start coming off again? I mean, with the low calories, low carb, and exercise, how can it not?

I just need some reassurance. Anyone else gone through this? Or have advice?
Your frustration is shared by me today. I have been on IP for 15 weeks and haven't cheated. I was told not to exercise, but I started about a few weeks ago because of sagging skin. I have lost 61.5 pounds, but only 1.5 pounds in the last two weeks. I have also switched to an alternative product (EAS carb control). I am not changing anything, except, I am going to stop the cardio for a week and see if it makes a difference. My coach says that she has seen it many time that when people exercise they slow down with the weight lose. Good luck - stay steady and do it One Day at a Time.

Man, that took you forever. You'd better crank up the workouts.

Yes, we do have an IP reset button now. That's a good way of looking at it.

Guess we should get off this thread now.
