Happy Monday to everyone! One more pound gone this week. It would be easy to say only 1 pound but I have learned that every pound we lose is a success! For me, one of the biggest changes I have experienced since starting IP is the change in TOM. Not just frequency or being on schedule but little things like not getting the signs/symptoms I would get reminding me it was on the way. I also don't seem to suffer cramps like I used to. Isn't it amazing how nice our body treats us when we treat it nicely? Good luck to everyone with WI's coming up this week.

Anyone have an up to date .pdf on Phase 1, I have the old one but not an e-copy of the new one. Have a friend interested in the diet and would like to go alternative. Also, there used to be a google doc excel spreadsheet comparing the IP foods with all the alternatives, anyone save that?

All I feel like doing is sleep and sleep some more, all my muscles are aching.

All this and I am happy yo report that I am still 100% OP.
WOW Sandra, you're doing fantastic...but I'd say it was time to go to the doc's too! 40 C :/

Feel better SOON!

Here is the excel thingur for the comparisons -> http://www.mediafire.com/?6p863528endstyl
It's slightly different than the official one, but only in that everything is on one page rather than them being on different sheets.

And I attached the Phase 1 sheet that I got from Ideal to Go a couple of weeks ago.

OMG! Has anyone tried Sxinny Mist? It blocks the sugar receptors on your tongue, while it balances out your blood sugar. I'm trying to get started back on Ideal protein to get the rest of this weight off. However, everytime I try the cravings overtake me and I fall of the wagon. I have an extreme sweet tooth which is usually the downfall of all my diets. I tried this at a friends house and it is amazing! It made my all time favorite food (english toffee ) taste so bitter (especially the little bits stuck in your teeth!). I will seriously never try the stuff again.

Anyways.. I know I've been off the boards for awhile.. but here goes try 32! Wish me luck!

I would love to get a full eight hours of sleep, I'm worried that I might crash one of these days in the middle of a lecture at school!

My sleeping pattern totally changed with IP now I am lucky to get in 6 hours/nite sometimes 5 (pre IP- 8 hours). I am used to now and since I have so much more energy I cannot understand. Hopefully I will be able to sleep more with this new energy level once I start the maintance phase of diet.

Sandra you're doing great in spite of being sick. Sounds like you have the flu. Take care and just drink lots and lots of fluids.

Congratulations to all of those who are having good WIs this morning regardless of the amount. As long as the number is going down and not up is a very good thing.

I have lots of energy, but by the time I finish work, work out, eat and plan lunch and dinner for the next day I am done. I often sleep 10 hours, although thy are interrupted by bathroom break. All that water....

Romaine can also be stir fried. It is delicious! Another way to get lettuce in without eating it raw...

I made hash browns out of my turnip yesterday. Delicious.

I also tried the cauliflower bread sticks. My dh and I were impressed, although I expect they would be even better with cheese! I could see using it as a pizza crust...or thin bread.

Trying not to get down. I started IP on 9/12/11 and besides the first week when I lost ALOT of weight I have very consistently lost 3 pounds a week (which I am THRILLED with!) I have had an occassional week with 4 and an occassional week with 2, but it has overall been a steady 3 per week. My WI is tomorrow and I am only down 1 pound this week. Hopefully there will be a little woosh by tomorrow, but it's very odd to me, to not have lost my typical 3 or at least 2. Hoping for some inches at least! Because I have been so consistent I have never experienced the ups and downs in weight loss like many of you have. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going crazy with being upset, just have a slight concern that my predictable losses are about to stop.

The doctor's verdict: bronchitis, I was relieved since when he sent me to do an xray for my chest, he said he wanted to make sure it wasn't pneumonia, so, I am glad it is not. He gave me antibiotics and order me to stay in bed for 3 days.
