Rhondalyn- Sugarless gum has asparatame in it! Which is a no no on this plan!

I have a question.. which WF salad dressing is best? I tried caeser last time and am not a big fan... thanks!

You cannot chew gum with aspartame, but you can chew gum sweetened with Xylitol. Spry has the biggest variety. Trident has a couple flavors that are Xylitol only.

My favorite is the Balsamic vinagrette, but my bf loved the Italian, so I think everyone is a little different depending on what flavors you like.

(or registration fee whatever they call it)
That doesn't sound kosher at all. I wonder if Ideal Protein knows this. You could do IdealtoGo.com (one time $25 registration fee) instead and save yourself not only $$ but time.

I buy from netrition.com or my local grocery store if they have them on sale (which they often do, but not as many options as netrition.com).

Default Good Wed. morning!!! (Wed already!!)

My week is going to be mixed up with Mon being a holiday....
Wonderful sunny fall day here in West-Central Manitoba...we take everyone we can!!
Didn't do as good as I wanted this week lb. wise, but I feel so great; was a year ago yesterday I had my left hip replaced..and to be able to move around without pain is such a blessing. IP has been a huge blessing in my life this past 6 months...my coaches had an info/signup meeting last nite and asked my DD & I to give testimonies at it. I love being able to stand up in front of people and telling them how IP has changed my life!!

Sounds as though you're doing everything right. I think the reading is important as plan itself.

My "coach" told me because of the carbs.

Yesterday was my first WI...........4.5lbs! yay
There are 2 coaches at the clinic I go to. I saw 1 at sign up and the other on my 2nd visit. They both have very different view. Wierd they are in the same clinic but have 2 different views. C1 (coach 1) said 2 restricted proteins a week for the first 2 weeks. C2 says 1 a day from the start!!! I have 4 for this coming week. Is the opinion out there to exercise when eating resticted items?

I have a birthday coming soon and a couple of friends want to get together sunday. We all love sushi so one said sushi! I said that I was doing a no carb diet so if the group wants sushi I would just eat before I go......I was being funny. they said ok sushi it is! HELLO!! it's my birthday haha So I said salad place please....................sushi on their birthday haha

NSV. yesterday was my first lunch out since starting IP, only last week, we always go for mexican. I DID IT!! I did not eat one single chip with salsa. It felt GREAT! I drank my chocolate drink on the way to the restaurant, ordered a green salad added my own cucumbers and mushrooms and brought my own dressing. I'm proud of me!

I'm so excited to say that at my WI yesterday I was down another 4 pounds which puts me over 20!! I started the beginning of September and I'm so excited. My NSV today was when I was getting in the shower this morning i happened to glance in the mirror. For the first time I really was able to see the weight loss in my legs! I have never felt better about myself.

Now I just need the willpower to resist the temptation of a food day in my honor at work tomorrow since I'm starting a new job! I think the fact that I have done so well will be what I need to succeed!

Thanks for the continuous support!
Jess

Hmmm that doesn't sound right!!! We have been told the sign up fee is for a life time membership.

we were told the same thing that our sign up fee was a lifetime membership.. that just doesn't sound correct and I would check to see if it was anywhere in the contract that you signed about a second sign up fee...

WI today and it was official I lost thru the thanksgiving holiday.. my coach was shocked and I was so proud to have made the choices that I felt would reflect best for me... now let's see if I do that in another week when we have a huge fundraiser to attend...my coach suggested I stay on phase 1 til I reach goal so that I have some "playing room" at this fundraiser.. I'm actually 2 pounds from what she set for me in the clinic but on here I'm living the dream and reaching for the stars with just the desire to dip my toes into those 60's LOL...

congrats on everyone's accomplishments and again thank you so much for having this forum it is such a terrific place to turn to for support and encouragement!!

WI this morning. Down 3.2. It's funny how it never seems like enough, but I've never lost weight this quickly before. I know, I'm just a little greedy! LOL

Lots going on in my life and those of my loved ones and so I'm just trying to be more prayerful, stay focused and realize that there are some burdens that aren't mine---and those that are I will have the strength to deal with when I need to. For now, it's one step or one prayer at a time.
