I'm finally catching up with the posts..my family was here for a week visiting..left on Thursday morning. When I was ready to make dinner, I went to the pantry to get a can of tuna and there ion the shelf was a large half-filled jar of roasted peanuts...My brain said, "Oh, roasted peanuts" as my hand reached for the jar. Then I pulled my hand back like I'd touched a hot stove and thought "what are you thinking"? and quickly hid the jar behind my WF products. Out of sight, out of mind. Couldn't believe after all this time I had that knee-jerk reaction. I guess it's all about being aware. My family thinks I'm tired from the diet...I didn't tell them, that having 3 extra people around with all the commotion MIGHT have something to do with it! I just have to prepare myself a little beforehand.

I have a question...does anyone notice a change in the products? I'm having trouble getting the Wildberry yogurt and the orange drink to completely dissolve....wondered if IP is playing around with the formulations again.

For those who think no one is noticing their weight loss...they are...just will take them awhile to mention it...someone here has a signature that says "It's none of my business what anyone else thinks of me"....I tell myself that daily having been raised by a pretty critical family. The other day I went to work in jeggings, a white denim jacket, and boots...the lady down the hall came in and said "oh, biker chick today"...I repeated the above statement silently to myself....but the next day she came in and said "let me see what you are wearing today"....I asked why and she said "because you always look so nice and you have done a wonderful job....so you justnnever know

Loved your office story, Pumpkinparry, and also love the signature you quoted. Will remember that!

I was away for a few days visiting relatives in South Carolina and was around all that delicious Southern cooking. It was really difficult, but I never cheated. Came back home Thursday night and was weighed in yesterday morning. All that restraint and all I had to show for it was a 1-lb loss. Disappointing. Keep reminding myself, "One pound is still a loss," but I'm worried about the slowdown, since I'm only halfway to my goal. I measure everything and have not cheated once since starting the diet in August...feeling a little frustrated right now.

Oh my gosh, don't be frustrated - 36 pounds since August is great! Wow, I wish I could have done so well. And just think of the pounds you would have put on if you hadn't used restraint! Losing 1 pound is still losing and that is the important thing!!

Congratulations! A new member of the family, how exciting! I'm always thinking about adding a new puppy to our family, I would love to get a labradoodle! But, my 8 year old Airedale thinks he is still a puppy and he is agressive with some dogs so I'm not sure he would tolerate another dog in the family. Best of luck to you and your new baby. What did you name him/her?

Hey all!
I tried the IP chocolate pancakes this morning....what in the world???? It turned out like pudding in a pan. They won't rise, they won't set. I finally scraped it into a bowl and microwaved the goo. I couldn't put the goo in the trash because it's so expensive! Does anyone know where I went wrong? Anyone made these pancakes before?

Whatever you did wrong...I did the same thing. Both the crepe and the pancakes turned out like goo for me. I did make the chocolate pancakes as muffins before and they were good. I think they should have told us what size pan to use and how big to make them. I tried one large crepe and two medium pancakes and neither of them set.

LOL! Apparently you missed the WTF are these things message from me! I did the exact same thing, and I have no idea what went wrong. I have only one other packet and am pretty sure I am gonna make a muffin with it. I ended up eating the large chocolate (it doesn't even taste good chocolate) blob from my frying pan (because of the cost) and choked it down. Will most likely be the last packet in my cupboard at the end of this diet.

Hey everyone! Hope your having a fantastic weekend. I'm in the middle of remodeling a room. Lots of spackle and paint in my day. I'm one pound away from having lost 30 lbs! Not bad for under 7 weeks on the program. Love this plan!

I think you are doing great too! After reading all these posts, you've got to know that sometimes your body just has to catch up. My only thought is make sure you drink all (and more) or your water!
I was feeling frustrated last week (week 3 for me). I was weighing myself obsessively at home (every time I was in the bathroom) and it was playing with my head until I finally had my hubby hide the damn scale.
I am still going on my Wii to weigh myself and do some yoga, but that's only every other day or so, and only in the mornings. Well, this morning it says I'm down almost 5 lbs from last Tuesday's WI!!! I'm sure I'm going to have a good week this week after last week's piddly .6 lbs. But I'm not going to update my signature weight until my official WI (don't want to jinx it!).
Hope everyone has a wonderful IP Sunday!

Total weight loss: 58.2 pounds
Total inches
Chest size went from 42 to 34
Waist went from 38 to 25
Hips went from 44 to 37.5
Arm went from 11 to 8
Thighs went from 22.5 to 17.5
A total of around 42 inches lost! Now, I don't think that they measured me in the same spots, but its fine, I'm totally happy with my losses.
JessicaCourez, you should be totally happy! Your success is very inspiring!!

jency, not bad indeed. Thanks for sharing as your news encourages us all!

as for me, working the plan and reading, as all of your posts remind me of different things. Time well spent with my IP friends. I spent a good chunk of time away from home yesterday, but was prepared and kept on protocol. Have to do the same today, but if I go with my plan on what to eat and drink my water, I'm good. Cheers, all!

Didn't follow maintenance rules, gained 13 lbs and did a reset in Summer '11 on my own w/ alternatives - success on scale, but I didn't phase off properly.
One year later, find myself with unwanted pounds, so I am with my IP coach and IP products (mostly) for another reset on 7.23.12....started fresh on my ticker. Phase 4 on 9.2.12
I am using my signature here to help me remember my history. same input = same output. Phase 4 FOREVER!

He got on the scale and is down 5 pounds so he is very happy. He needs to lose about 20 lbs. He is drinking tons of water too!
My son who is 27 went on IP and he just had an extra 25 pounds he just couldn't get rid of and he worked out and ran like crazy. He lost his weight and feels fantastic, took him 2 months or so. He was told with the exercise, stop for phase 1. He did but a few times just missed it and went anyway and then didn't have the losses like the other weeks when he didn't exercise. I know they say if you were a person that worked out you can keep it up but you have to add packets or you will be very hungry! Don't feel like a wussy for doing IP or being on this site!! They both had me to turn too! Keep it up. We all drink coffee, I have been drinking at least 3 really strong cups a day for the entire time I have been using IP. I do drink at least 120 oz. of water a day and follow all of the rules. I didn't use restricted packets until phase 3. Good luck, keep it up!!!!!! Here's a hug back!

This holds true for soft drinks like Pepsi and Coke, even 0, although it's best to just eliminate those altogether for a wide variety of reasons.

I think you're doing the very best thing you can do by reading as much as you possibly can on this site, especially Tips for Newbies, Phases 1 and 2, Recipes, and the facts sticky.

Congratulations for taking your life in your own hands, and WELCOME.
Thank you! I'm trying my best to stick with it as best I can. Today is a little better, it feels like my hunger has subsided a bit....even with the tons of candy that is laying around work lol.

Didn't have a good day yesterday. I am only eating what I am suppose to but since I got up so late, my schedule was WAY off. Only had 3 cups of vegs and two packets and appx 6 oz of fish I know that in the WW program if you don't eat enough you gain, so I am a little worried.

Also, tried making chips for lunch today and it flopped but I also didn't go by a receipe, just cut and salt and cook so...funny but they were still good, just not crispy! Gonna go surf the receipes again Happy Sunday all!

Here's a subject carried over from aev4vball's post in FAQs (And WELCOME.) regarding brown fat. This interview from NPR's "Science Friday" is quite informative and a little bit of a teaser because clearly scientists don't yet have a handle of what it totally is and how it functions. I'd really like to hear what others know about this subject.

Re: the chocolate pancakes and crepes...

I did my pancake mix up as mini muffins (It made 8 mini muffins). Baked at 350 for abour 18 minutes or so. They were set, but not that great. I probably won't get them again.

I turned my pack of crepes into crackers! Mix the packet with water until relatively thinish (pancake batter like), then spread on a cookie sheet (I covered my cookies sheet in parchment paper), sprinkle salt over the top and bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until good and set. Pull the giant cracker thing out of the oven (it will be soft and flexible), turn your oven down to 300 and use a pizza cutter to cut it into squares or whatever. Put the crackers back on the cookie sheet and put them back in the oven at 300 for an hour or so, so they can dry out and get crispy.

It totally fulfilled my need for crackers - you could even sprinkle it with the white cheddar seasoning... Mmmmmm.... cheez-its!
