Then I am going to do phase 3 for 2 weeks and then phase 4 for one week before I head to Vegas for a week (will be off the whole week). Then I will do one week of phase 2 after Vegas and then one week of phase 3 before going back to maintenance.

Wish me luck! I feel very motivated. On Memorial Day weekend it will be one year since I entered maintenance.


ON A SUPER AWESOME NOTE....my daughter called she has started IP again. Not sure if some of you remember my worries about her a few weeks ago (she has 170 pounds to lose).
That is great news about your daughter Darbs, I as well am continuing phase 1 this week, hoping to be in the 150s again next week and who knows if that is motivation enough will continue until I see the 140s...

I too am hoping to see the 140's so I will need to stay focused for 6-8 weeks...in the high 160's right now. Good to hear from you. I plan on checking in daily. Would be great to hear from you.

Today is day 2 on phase 1....yesterday was perfect and I stayed busy...walked at lunch...yoga right after work and then golf (walk and carry clubs) right after dinner. My hubby is away until Thursday so we will see how the next two days go. I loaded him with food to stick to plan (he has 12 pounds to lose).

Anyone still rebooting? We started real phase 1 again yesterday...although for me this is just the usual weekday eating pattern. Hopefully dh will stick with it over the weekend. I can be easily led astray now that I am in my maintain range....but, oh, to see 140...

I am still rebooting...although I drank a ton of alcohol at a wedding on Saturday night....still in ketosis, but up 2 pounds from fluid retention....danced for four hours straight.....oh well....my plan is 100% from now until the 27th of this month.

About .8 of a pound and I will be back to my Saturday morning weight and then 5 more to go and I am back to my maintenance weight and then hopefully 10 more pounds before I leave for Vegas. My plan is 100% until May 27th (then I will have a few drinks for my anniversary).

Hey-
Thought I would bump this thread since I am probably going to be hanging out here in the coming weeks

I am going to join you on a reboot (except I won't be starting until the 6th). I am a little over what I like to be, but would also like to get under 130. I am giving myself 6 weeks back on P1 to see if I can get into the 120's.

I have been toying with the idea for a while but it wasn't until recently that I actually felt ready to do it and make the commitment. I am actually excited about it and to see if I can get into the 120's. It has been almost 1 year since I started IP and I think it is a good time for me to jump back onto P1.

I am going to do a combination of IP and alternatives this time. I ordered a couple of boxes from Nashua to get me started and I purchased a box of the RTD chocolate from my clinic. I just haven't found anything that I like as much as those, and they are great to throw in my gym bag for a post workout shake. I am supposed to get my nashua shipment tomorrow so I will be all set to start on Sunday.

I am hoping that I will have more free time in the coming weeks so I can get on 3FC more for support. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel of my last 6 weeks of craziness

YOu started yesterday...? How did it go? I made it through the weekend and looking forward to another week. YOu are so smart to do this. I was so upset to find the scale up 15 pounds back in January and I never did anything about it.

Starting reboot today. I am staying around 137 and would like to be either low 130's or in the 120's. I originally finished at 130 last March (2011)- hung around 132 for a few months, then 134 for a few more and now 137 for a few, I don't want to keep slowly climbing up any more! TIme for a downward surge! Good luck to everyone! I will be heading to my clinic on Thursday - until then, I'm using up all the IP products that I have avoided in the past couple of months! I will be rewarding myself with some IP Chocolate Drink Mix and Mango RTD (love them both!) Can't wait!

Good idea...stop it before it becomes more.

I was up 15 pounds (actually 16-17) when I started my reboot the end of March....I rebooting for 2 weeks and dropped 7 pounds...then went on vacation and packed it back on. Then I was perfect 2 weeks and then went to a wedding and drank 2 weekends ago...and put 3 back on. Finally on a roll....down about 10...But when I think about it...I still weigh 75 less than 2 years ago!

Hey girls . I restarted IP Alternatives 5 weeks ago after being in maintenance since Jan. I got to 137 but went up to 142 after I phased off. I was good for a little while until I went on vacation and it just went downward from there .
I ended up gaining too much (15 pounds yikes!) and decided I couldn't continue like that.

Well problem is I've been bouncing between 147-148 for almost 3 weeks now!
When I first lost the weight I was going to the gym 5 days a week. Since I moved and there is no affordable gym around I haven't been able to go. I really wonder if this is my problem.

I've tried getting back into running (what I did for cardio at the gym) and I can't even go for more than a minute outside .

I'm so mad at myself for doing this.. YET again. At least I caught it early.. last time I let myself get to 200 before pushing my butt back into gear.
