From day to day we have many bumps and dips in the road...People can be so helpful or can totally sabbatoge your program and your lives. This is when you have to make this about you its not about doing for this for anybody but you. Your health, your peace of mind, confidence to get out and live, the will to make your life better and in doing this so many doors open up for you. The way people treat you because believe it or not you act differently and you have the power to do this for you.

Lets make 2012 about changing our lives for the better...This journey is about you. Its so worth it....

Morning Everyone
Today is TOM day 2 and have to go weigh in today at a different clinic as mine is closed until the 3rd but I have a feeling that I gained significantly over this past week. UGH. I feel bloated and gross and my face is extremely dry. Not enough water I am sure. It feels like sand paper.
Wish me luck today and to all who are weighing in today I wish you luck. Oh and I have to buy my multi, and potassium as I ran out four days ago and haven't found anything remotely close. I have been taking prenatal multi, my IP calcium and no potassium so who knows what that is going to do to this old body???? Fingers crossed. I will post my results this afternoon when back. Bebe

Good Morning All! I was looking for the "ip alternatives" thread and only found one that was closed. Can someone point me in the right direction or teach me how to look around the site. I am pretty new here and I am not all that computer literate. Any help will be appreciated.

There are several members here who use alternatives, but not a designating posting area that I know of. We all just post in here. If you've read through the older post already and have some questions, post them here. We are all familiar with the alternatives and hopefully can help you out.

Good morning all! The scale was down 2 pounds today. I will be glad to get rid of this bloated feeling. I have to believe Dr. Tran in that our metabolism changes with this diet for the better. After all I ate on vacation I expected things to be worse.

Jellymay , congrats on losing over a 100 pounds and of course, go show off your new body and enjoy all the compliments.

Lindac, you were in the right spot! Closed just means you can't add any more posts to the thread, but do read all 500 posts and you will get a wealth of information. If you have questions, just post on the daily thread here.

Wuv, You have a great day too and enjoy your boys that are home from college. Are you still cooking up a storm for them? How is your mom doing on maintenance?

Good morning,

Not much going on, freezing cold here. Have a few errands to run but otherwise i just plan on relaxing the next few days until i go back to work on tuesday.

Have a great OP day everyone!

Happy new year everyone
Wasn't yesterday crazy, I was downtown for the first part of the day and by the time I drove to the Airport the roads were so much better and no accidents. Couldn't believe it when I got home and my street and driveway crunched all the way in... couldn't even scrap that stuff off the driveway... going to be warm again monday and tuesday... okay at least warm for Edmonton...

You will be fine, not taking your supplements can have its effects as well. Let us know but you may be surprised...

Bebe ~ I have the same feeling except I have started my TOM (yet) but I can tell its' coming. I weighed myself last night and it doesn't look like any loss but I am bloated so that figures. I just keep telling myself that this week will pass because I have been 100% OP so I know next week will be better!
