i'm not all the way there yet, but find i'm having an internal yearning to do "something".

comments please... and if yes, please what the action is why the action is significant to you.

have a great day everyone! and welcome back carla!
Great topic...I think about this lots and have decided jewelry is in my future- jewelry has marked significant occasions in my life (wedding, birth of my daughter) so why not mark this significant occasion with something just for me--every time I look at it I will be reminded of how far I have come. (I am also considering buying a piece of art that i have had my eye on for some time...that is also something I collect- and my life's story is told by the pieces of art hanging in my home)

For those who want tattoos, nose piercings, hair cuts, new jeans, a horseback ride to a zip line...I say GO FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YES! I'm going to bump up a thread about goals (if I can find it) so you'll see lots of us are thinking the same way. I loved reading about everyone's goal rewards. Mine is a trip, but I'll probably do something extra just for me...I'm not interested in a piercing or tattoo, and my hair changes frequently anyway, so I'll be following Mrs. D's fabulous example and getting my boobs fixed. I don't want them smaller, just higher! I'd like to do a full body lift (thanks to those pesky twins!).

My coach told me that I was the most drastic case as far as before/after success! WOW, I couldn't believe that! ME??? So she wanted me to do a testimony of IP and put it in the newsletter with pics.
Have a great weekend all! As my son said, "There's frosting on the roof, but no snow"
That's awesome, Amy! So happy for you.

I really like the jewelry idea! I wear cuff bracelets daily and I think maybe I'll find a class and make myself a silver one! That way I'll get the class and the bracelet. How fun. Thanks for the suggestion.

I did tell my husband that I want a warm island vacation when I have lost all the weight I want to lose. Have always wanted to go to Figi.

At the top of my list is getting my knee replaced after living with the pain of arthritis for way to many years. I hope to be at goal by August and will have the surgery in September.

all such good ideas! i will be 44 at goal if all progresses well. I did a tatoo with my boys names after the death of BFF's child who was same age as my youngest, it helped me grieve and mend somehow i can't explain. thought i already went through my midlife crisis with a divorce in my 30's, but now all these sentiments are stirring inside me and i feel i need to honor them somehow. i thought i was just having one of those hormone surges we all get..... but it is so emotional and soul changing isn't it! i would love to see the bumped thread, so alert me somehow please! thanks for the comments so far!

The thread has been bumped. It's awesome to know so many people think alike. One of my rewards is a new Vera Bradley hipster...I've been so self-conscious of anything "wrapping around" my big body, I can't wait for it not to look silly on me!

Day 19 and and starving. Someone please help out. I have posted before about not being in ketosis, and still am not. I even email the Ideal Protein website, but got no response. Does the hunger ever pass? I had my bloodwork done, and all is perfect, but am dog tired and frustrated. I already had an extra packet today, but it just ain't cutting it. I have been chewing sugar free gum, til my gums hurt. I don't expect any great loss on Monday for my weigh in - so if I'm not in ketosis, can having aspertane hurt? Please forward any pointers if you can be of help - frustrated and in a snow storm in Atlantic Canada....

oh geez, that must be so frustrating. how do you know your not in ketosis? i am too much of a newbie to be much help i am afraid, but i do know that my coach said NO gum as it tells your stomach food is coming. i was a big gum chewer! now its listerine breath strips...are you drinking your water? sounds like your doing everything else right. Please dont give up, and hopefully some of the more 'seasoned' folk can help you out

Aspartame can sometimes fool the body into gearing up for sugar (meaning insulin is produced, pancreas is pumping etc) so you may want to avoid aspartame if possible. Also one thing that helped me with hunger and I feel a coming on...but getting a bit more fat. I know for me the allotted 2 tsps of fat/olive oil was not enough...and even consuming another packet didn't help as it just gave me more carbs when what I needed was fat. You may want to try eating an egg (I eat mine hard boiled) and I mean the WHOLE EGG. For me doing this with a bit more olive oil helped immensely. (and actually helped me lose more weight)

Are you taking the IP supplements? what type of salad are you eating? how about your veggies? Which packets are you consuming and when? How tall are you? If you could let us know what you have done so far today maybe we can help by going over your diet line by line.

Hang in there ... and let us know exactly what you are doing
