Congratulations to all the losses yesterday. I was shocked at all the great losses despite the explosion of carb-loaded goodies appearing in everyone's offices and holiday parties. We are a strong minded group staying on protocol right now. I'm proud that everyone is so goal oriented here.

Carla, absolutely awesome news on your blood work. I need to schedule to go in for mine soon. Everyone out there in IP land, if there was ever an inspiration for this program, Carla is definitely the IP poster girl.

OK, I've dodged the morning routine and cold long enough. I hope every one has a great day.

Woke up this morning to find two new inches of snow. Took the dog out for its run and enjoyed the beauty of the freshly fallen snow. It is so beautiful when no one has walked in it yet and the animals outside are just waking up. Reminds me of when I was a child. My mom and I would take a walk in the evenings after a snow fall in town. We never talked too much, but we knew what each other was thinking. The smell of wood burning from neighbor's fireplaces, the calm and quiet, seeing people in their houses with their families. It wasn't dark out with the snow cover on the ground and the street lights would glisten with the flurries in the air. Ah, the memories.

Caught up on yesterday's thread. So many great things to celebrate for everyone! Congratulations to everyone! Pat yourselves on the back!

My Christmas season starts today! My daughter is flying in from the Phoenix area. I am so excited to see her! On Saturday my son graduates from the University of Iowa so that will be another special day. Lots of celebrations and getting my game head on to stay on protocol. Decided to host a graduation dinner at a very nice restaurant so I wouldn't be tempted to taste while I cooked. Plus no leftovers that way.

Have a great IP day everyone and take the time to enjoy what's around you.

Stop checking the scale daily!!! Stay off of it until you go for your next weigh-in. I found I would stress about milestones and my weight would jump back and forth more when I was stepping on the scale daily and worrying about my weight. You will get over the hump, just keep doing everything on protocol and STAY AWAY FROM THE DARN SCALE!!

jules26-Wow! I'm so jealous of you!!! As I sit here thinking it's relatively warm today (-15C, 2F) I suddenly get reminded that not everyone needs to wear multiple layers of clothes every time they walk out the door. You're going at the perfect time too - just before the January freeze!

I agree! The group we have right now is very determined! I remember last year during the holidays many people decided to take a break (some never came back), have a planned cheat (some could never get back on track the same way), or have a total cheat day (mixed opinions on if it was really worth it). This year so many seem to be choosing to just get through the next 10 days to 2 weeks. I like all the enthusiasm and determination to get to goal! It really is motivating.

You are too kind and you make me blush. Thank you for your words. I honestly don't believe I am the poster girl.

I look at the many people I have met on this board and think who was my inspiration, who did it just right and the people I recall are Novak, Chaplains Wifey, Jessica, Babs (she did it with Ideal to go), Jordanna (she was a real success, even got a much wanted baby out of the changes she created!), Rocky, Wannabe, Xanthia, Susan G, Dave, Josh, Dee Ann, and a few more. Not all lost a lot of weight, all of them had real dedication. I also look to people like Linden who had perfect compliance and dedication with a coach that was lacking in several ways and, a very slow loss rate that she had to figure out. Some people would say why bother, it isn't a pound or it's just a pound but, Linden kept going until her body finally responded in a better way.

So many others, you, Roz, Kelsey, Gaile, Calgary Girl, Pita, Erin, Svelting, Stacey, and I could go on (but for a poor memory that is only remembering avatar pictures ) You all had success and remained constant and supportive too. I like that for each person this can work with their issues and their lifestyle. I also like that we have an example of nearly every lifestyle for people to turn to. We have had people with PCOS/Insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, diabetes, thyroid problems, eating disorders, surgeries and illness, family stress and, traumas to overcome. This forum is so full of very determined and successful people who stuck it out despite many health issues or issues in general and got great results for their commitment!

I love that memory! Thank you for sharing. I am so happy for you to be seeing your daughter and having so many good things to rejoice in with your family during the next week! How exciting! I wish you all the best. I am sure you will have lots of support and understanding as you stay on plan.

Sounds like you will be dealing with Linden's supplier or maybe our new HI member.

What is taking you to Hawaii? Are you all set up with a place and job? How long will you be there or is this a permanent move?

Speaking of coaches....mine asked me to write a testimonial the other day and I am going to turn it down, but my husband says I should tell him why.

The chiropractor is the doctor sponsering the program but his mom and another lady do the "coaching." I literally HATE going to the office. The one lady looks my chart up and down, never compliments, always look for something I have done wrong, gets very snooty about the phase off rules (can't see outside the box) even after I lose 3.5 or more pounds week after week with only one bad week and that was 2 pounds. I find going there stressful. For awhile the mom was seeing me and she was awesome...happy cheerful...gave out hugs...supportive, etc.

I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE ON THIS BOARD BECAUSE YOU TAUGHT ME HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL....ESPECIALLY THANKFUL TO CARLA, DODOMOMMY, AVALYNN FOR SHARING HOW THEY WERE SUCCESSFUL THROUGH MESSAGES.

My coach has nothing to do with my success other then access to the food. I wish I could stop going there....I am very motivated without it. Again thankful to all of you for all the information that has helped me.

Also many thanks to the ladies back in September who convinced me to never step off protocol because I would regret it....I put that in my mind and now I am ready to face Las Vegas because I have been mentally prepared since all your posts back in September told me I would regret a cheat or two.

Again thank you to all of you....I am grateful for this board as it has been a big part of my motivation.
