As you saw and commented on, thank you, above I did cheat on my birthday. It is a learning process. You are far more disciplined than I, staying home 6 1/2 weeks, so you have the willpower and discipline to go out and back to your entertainment lifestyle just (again) in a different controlled manner. I know you can do it!!

I plan on avoiding any social event as much as possible until goal...then it will be time to learn how to add it back....I just want to lose these 76 pounds quickly or as quickly as possible and I have heard that once in maintainence once a week or even twice a week...you can have cheat days but you just have to be faithful the rest of the time...I am so looking forward to that day. I struggled yesterday...I kept talking about going out and doing something fun...first real mental struggle day. I am nervous about Friday night...I will post on Saturday to let you all know how I did.

Weigh in tonight and I'm so scared I've gained everything back!
I really don't trust myself in any social situation...I can be very weak. I figure that 4-5 months of boringness is better than 76 extra pounds. But I spent alot of time yesterday bumming about all the fun I am missing, but my hubby kept saying it is temporary....you will feel so good at the end and the end will be so much faster....ah yes....back to boringness. Keep up the good work

Default Boringness.......

For those that are missing socializing..........just an idea.
I have friends over Saturday night for dinner and cards. Of course they wanted to know what they could bring. I said "not a thing I have it all covered" I made an IP meal. No temptation. It is an idea!

Default 11/5 Update

Total lost so far 11.5 lbs.

I think I have made my goal a bit too lofty. Understand I have not given up but I lose 2 - 3 lbs a week, normal and I am satisfied with this, to reach my Thanksgiving goal I will need to lose 4+ (less than 5) a week. Should I add a little cardio? like 20 mins on the eliptical trainer??

thinking of you all and darbs7 especially. Sending as you visit Boston and see friends/family. I know you'll rock it!

I have hit a magical number of pounds lost for me = 20 pounds gone this morning. The compliments from co-workers helped me resist a thought yesterday that I wanted to transition now to Phase 2. I was frustrated temporarily about limited choices and all the temptations I see every day at work. As I'm svelting said in the "back from off the wagon" thread today, I can resist those thoughts one meal at a time, then one day at a time, then one WI at a time. For me, it was a commitment to banish those thoughts with 2 big glasses of water.

off to drink two more glasses right now

my best to everyone!

started IP on 9.17.10; lost 30 pounds in 14 weeks .
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!
