Angry Aarrrgggghhhhh!!!

I have been on the IP diet for almost 3 solid weeks now. I weighed myself ye sterday then this morning (both in early morning before I ate). I have gained almost a pound!! I don't understand. I have been the poster child for this diet-not eaten one thing that has been illegal-everything within legal limits, cardio every night for 40mins and the balancing ball for 20 minutes. My salt intake is the alotted 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt AND had a hysterectomy 9 years ago, so I don't have the "monthly woes" Anyone else have this happen to them?

Morning everyone! Hope you all have a fantastic start to the weekend. I'm going shopping for clothes this morning. Yew haw! Last weekend I purged my closet for what I think will be the last time. Getting rid of the clothes felt good, but I now only have a small handful of items to wear. I've been extremely luckY and haven't needed to buy too many new items as my closet was filled with sizes 18 - 6. Plus, I was able to supplement with items from consignment shops. Now that I'm pretty close to my "ideal" size, I'm going to splurge on a few new things. Yes, I'm a little concerned about the whole body remorphing/reshaping which a lot of those who've gone through the later phases have forwarned about, and how this could make buying new clothes unwarranted. But gosh darn it, I've finally gotten down to a decent size and I want to wear a pair of pants which fit me and don't droop in the butt! (funny side note: 2 weeks ago I bought a pair of just about perfect jeans from a thrift
shop. Was feeling pretty good about them even though they were a tad too long, but a pair of decent Levi's for only $2, I can deal with long pant legs. Anyways, I'm wearing them and feeling proud of myself. I met up with a friend who starts laughing even before I reach her. All of a sudden my fat girl
insecurities rise up and I start chastising myself for wearing the tight jeans. After a moment I realized my friend was pointing to the lower part of the jeans. You know how when you wear a pair of jeans for a long time, the knee area fades? Well the worn knee area of these jeans on me is about 2 inches below where my knees actually are. When I tried the jeans on I didn't bother looking at the knees - I was looking at how good I thought my backside looked. Ahhhh vanity.).

So, wish me luck on finding clothes which not only fit, but aren't too expensive.

Good Morning everyone!

Time to put the outdoor furniture away!! So I believe I am in full Ketosis, the bad breath, but the "Gassy" from all the veggies. I did the video again but I didn't see anything on there about that? I believe it is because I have added broccoli to my salads. Has anyone tried to BBQ soy nuts? I am going to be gone for 7 days and have planned with my coach a few things I can do I was just curious how you all liked the soy nuts?

Have a great weekend everyone!! Keep up the GREAT WORK....

Good morning all! Just wanted to share a NSV. I went to the movies last night and I was worried that the popcorn and goodies would be calling me. Well I ate my my chicken breast and sping mix salad before I arrived and was able to walk right past the junk food when I got there. It's amazing how I had built the popcorn (and the smell of it especially) up in my head. My success lied in having my mind made up before I got there that there would be no popcorn or anything else! I even stuck a couple of pickles and some water in my purse to make sure of it! I felt so accomplished on the ride home! I say all this to encourage anyone who may face a temptation this weekend! Make it a great one

Ummmm. Didn't your coach mention the perils of exercise? Just wondering.

This is hilarious. Isn't it great to make fun of yourself, and still feel good?

Clarice41: Check out the exercise thread. When you're doing your cardio make sure you stay in the fat burning zone -which is about 60 -70% of your MHR.

Super excited that it is the weekend ! Heading out to the 'big city' soon and am already giggling to myself that one of the highlights will be going to the thrift store to find more clothes. I had success there a few weeks ago and can't wait to go again.

Went for a walk early this morning with the dog and even though there was white frost on all the roofs it sure is a beautiful morning.

Wishing everyone a great weekend full of happiness and success !!

Cheers to all !

Hi Everybody
I went on the Ideal Protein Diet on May 1 2010 weighed 210 now 167 5'11and Iím about to start phase 4. I try to check in to see how every bodyís doing. I donít post any blogs I just read them. I got my blood work back and every thing is ok. My thyroid went down. But they say my liver enzymes are little high they will test it again in 2 weeks.

Did any body else have problems with their liver enzymes? If so what can I do to lower my enzymes??
