I started about the same time as you. My weight loss slowed down and then went up 2 lbs without cheating! Or at least so I thought! I learned on 3FC that the new rule is WF syrups are limited to 2 T per week! Also, my coach said I could have a little skim milk with coffee. I used "a little" several times during the day over New Years holiday. I also was extremely active swimming, hiking, horseback riding every day. Bottom line I got very stringent with the protocol and cut way back on the skim and WF. The scale went down 5 lbs. So, DON'T CHEAT! It's a waste of time and more frustrating than sticking to it and not dropping because at least you're not gaining.
Review your food and WF products and just wait it out. The scale may move Big Time when it goes again. At least that was my experience and my smallest, tightest blue jeans are baggy this week because of it. I'm so thrilled with IP. Other diets like WW might lose 2 lbs per week but, I can't stick to it. The ketosis helps me stick to the program.
