Yes wuv2b,
I am drinking, ~ 48 ozs. of Propel and 48 ozs. of regular H2O. She also said she would like me to drink some unsweetened coconut water, but she said it is quite bitter. I am going to go to Wegmans and get some, I'll add some of the Torani syrup I got to make it less bitter, she said that would be fine. Are you taking the enzymes? I have not had any stomach or bowel troubles at all, but she wants me to try them.

I have to 1) congratulate Laura, and 2) agree wholeheartedly with her. Five months ago, I wrote 155 as a goal weight, not ever thinking that I would make it there. I picked a number that was something that I remembered weighing in high school. It was surreal...

This Monday, my official weight was 154. I have lowered my goal to 145, feel great in everything that I wear, and have a better outlook on life.

I went from a tight 16 to a size 8 mostly, some size 6's. I just registered "normal BMI" yesterday at the gym.

The individual weeks might seem slow, annoying, and frustrating. But, as Laura said, stick with it. This program can change your life, but you have to let it.

WOW...so inspiring. I started at 230 and my goal is similar to yours (150 because I'm 5'5"). This is week 4 for me and I'm happy with the losses so far. Please keep coming back to the forum and let us know how the phases work for you. Congratulations on your amazing journey!

Wow Longdivision...This is incredibly inspirational! This is just what all these great new IPers need to hear! This diet does work - I never thought I would get to this point either. I remember my first week, wondering if I would last more than a couple of weeks, sceptical as to whether it worked and worried about the amount of money that I was using out of our family budget. All that worry was for nothing, aside from the weight loss, I feel great (no more burning pains in my hips and knees, my BP is down) - I also have had an opportunity to reassess my relationship with food (which ultimately made me look at the relationship I have with myself).

I started IP at 190lbs. Prior to that it had taken me two years to get from 210 to 190.
I have gone from a size 18-20 in pants to a size 8, I can sit in a chair and cross my legs without having to manually lift one leg over the other, I can get up off the couch without straining and I can breathe...breathe...breathe, without feeling like I am suffocating in my own body.

I love this plan!

i know how you feel!! i decided it was time to lose weight when it got difficult for me to put socks on, and labored my breathing to bend over and tie my shoes. also, i had a terrible sharp pain in my right knee cap for the last 5 years that my doctors couldn't figure out. wouldn't you know it that the pain went away as the weight came off! i also used to be on BP medication for type II hypertension and the doctors would tell me that 28 was way too young to be on BP medication. now i take no medication and my BP is on the low side. being obese can affect a lot of things. it really puts your health in jeopardy.

Laura, congratulations on your huge victory. You're so lucky to be doing this at your young age instead of carrying around the weight for a lifetime. I know that you're inspiring all of us!

Congratulations to everyone that posted all of their victories today!

I think you are the first person that I have seen that the coach told them to drink the Propel water. I drink close to 2 gallons of water a day. I am not on any of the enzymes just the vitamins from the program is all. I would try drinking MORE water than 96 ozs if you can. I know the more water I drink the more I lose. Just a suggestion

Ha Ha, my husband came home and said what the heck are those for? Why are there so many? How much did all that cost? LOL! They just don't get it.

So I've already been hard at work using them

I made a Vanilla Pudding and cold Decaf coffee frap used 10oz. decaf coffee for the liquid blended it w/vanilla pudding packet and ice added some Dulce de Leche da vinci syrup it was yummy!

made pudding cakes tonight substituted 1 oz of water for 1 oz. pumpkin pie syrup in vanilla pudding cakes added cinnamon and nutmeg

made lemon pudding cakes substituted 1 oz water for 1 oz strawberry torini syrup

simmered rhubarb w/water and used strawberry syrup for the sweetener simmered right into the water and rhubarb. Its cooling now, tomorrow I will bake it in oven with an IP oatmeal packet made w/water spread it on top and bake, then I'll add a dollop of vanilla pudding that will be my lunch since 2 cups of rhubarb is equal to 2 cups of veggies. I'll let you know how it turns out.

I'll keep 'em coming as the days go on!

I agree. I try to drink a gallon of water a day- if I drink too much more, I get dizzy. But the more water I drink, the better my loss for the week. My coach says no propel, no crystal light, no mio, no diet pop, no coffee syrups.

Wow! Congrats!
