Thank you for your answer, and it's really great news to hear it hasn't affected your losses.

I might not be able to log on very much this week. I am visiting with my middle son and his family in North Carolina this week. I'm using their computer, but I think it's time to give it up for awhile.
This is really great news, thanks so much for sharing, this is going on my grocery list.

Special agent 6710 - LOL, never thought about it that way. Sure I'll help out, I'll try to post something each night this week.

I would like to extend the invitation to Carla and Elizabeth. There was discussion at one time about what you wished your coach had told you at the beginning; discussion about using birth control and the ineffectiveness; and about exercising, when you should/shouldn't, heart rate, etc. I think that would be useful to have on the tips.

hey Kelsey,
we all feel this way from time to time, but 5 months is a long time and you've been so persistent, it's amazing. When I get to the point I cannot look another salad in the eye, I go back and browse the recipe thread and find some veggie I have not made in awhile, or try something new. It usually gets me over the hump.

I'd vote for a separate thread for the "technical" and "how to" information so it does not get tangled into all the IP protocol information--more of a "how to use the board" rather than a "how to do IP".

Just my 2 cents, and how my brain works. And I like the idea of it being a "closed" sticky...if it's possible for someone to re-open it and add more later...does it work that way? (sorry I'm not technical enough to figure out how to start this sticky!)

Anyway, I meet with my coach tomorrow so maybe your posts will make more sense then.

I do have a question though. I have been working with a trainer and do not want to stop that. At the seminar I went to regarding this program, we were told not to do anything the first two weeks. I'm not sure why.

What is your take on exercise? I work with trainer 3 days a week, do cardio and attend zumba classes. I have been going about 6 months but have plateaued with the weight loss the past 3 months. Eating better than ever have but not dropping the weight. A practitioner at a clinic I go to recommended this program.
This should help.

Noticing we have a bit of broken up discussion going on around a new thread that Rocky Monarch suggested.

Here is a thread I started so that conversation can flow as it needs to and NOT take away from the 500 general chat posts we are allowed this week for this thread!

Thanks everyone!

Can we organize this to be a more efficient forum?

I think RM makes an important distinction. That's pretty much what I meant when I said "in part." A bit nebulous of me.

It's kind of funny, to me at least, that I posted my random tips for newbies before I saw any of the present discussion. I'd been meaning to do something like this for a while to give the site a nudge and hopefully to get others to add information about the IP program. I just found the time this afternoon (Pacific time).

Sorry everybody. Phase 1 for this long is starting to take its toll. Anyone else been on Phase 1 for this long? Maybe you can tell me how you're doing?

I think you and I may have started at the same time. You have done amazing and an inspiration to us all. You have lost 46 pounds in 5 months !!! My weight loss has been slow and I was told that at the beginning because I do train 2-3 times a week and continue to do so. The past few weeks have also been rough for me. As I mentioned in another post I am probably going to start phasing out as the cost is becoming too much.

KELSEY: I am starting my 5th month and have been struggling this past week (grandkids here, camping & the 3 wks in Germany) kind of kicked me off the straight and narrow, but after coming back and reading all the posts (especially yours) I know I will get back on protocol starting this morning. You are such a great influence to me as is everyone here, I really don't think I would have done as well as I have if it wasn't for this forum.
One of my DD's friends started IP last week and one of the best tips I could think of giving her was to come to this forum for information, support and encouragement!!!
I hope you are feeling better today!!

A new day, a new week....everything is going to be IP wonderful!!!!

Girl we are ALL there at one point or another... I kick myself looking at all that started with me and have lost 3 X as much because they have stuck to the program... all on phase 3 and 4... I got off the wagon for the wedding and honeymoon and just recently starting again...UGH... yeah but guess what? we don't accomplish anything by stressing, that only works against us so I am happy and working on me again... I think staying in a "good place" emotionally is what helps everything move. Hang in there and it will move again!
