I think I don't have school today... My class ends at 10am and that's when our school starts because of the weather... I'm so confused!

My jeans are fitting better! And I'm using a notch in my belt that was too small for me to use before! YEA BOI! LOL, I am loving this!

GOOD MORNING!
This really is the Couch Potato Diet! I have been sick with a nasty head cold since Wednesday. I've had my butt on the couch since then. I dropped 5 POUNDS this week! WOW. Haven't had a drop like that since the first few weeks.

Have a great week everyone!

Default Halfway to Initial Goal!

Good morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend!

50 lbs gone!!!! I am halfway to my initial goal of losing 100 lbs and feeling incredible! A lot of us have talked about what IP means to us, and I ditto all the positive comments re IP. This program is the perfect fit! It's restricted but not hard, it's results driven to a point but the science behind the program is what truly amazes me... no cravings? no hunger? I've never experienced this before! I LOVE this program!

So, at my week 12 WI (Saturday), I finally wrote down all my inches lost. I wasn't focusing too much on the numbers... more on how my clothes fit. Well, to my surprise, I've lost a total of 22 inches! 6 off my waist, 5 off my thigh (wow), 5.5 off my chest, 3.5 off my hips and 2 off my upper arm!

Wuv, thanks again for always preparing our daily chat... and all your motivating words of encouragement!

Congrats!!!! 1/2 is such an important step I agree this program works wonders for those who follow it. Can I ask how long you've been on? I know that no two people's weight loss will be the same, but I'm really hoping to hit the 50lb mark before we move in April.

WTG!!! And after the first week it gets much easier, I promise.

That's why I love this diet! Honestly I don't have time to spend hours upon hours at the gym, and get lesser results to boot. Congrats!!
