Hope all fellow IPers are having success moving through the day! I have been having cravings lately. I really am working on creating effective things to do with those moments!!

Oh this silly belly fat, too! In the past couple of years, the tummy really put on the fat. As I am losing, it has gone down, but now is this mushy bloop there! I had to go get some more pants. The one's I just got are falling off. Now, really no hips or hiney, but the tummy doesn 't fit in what will stay up! Well, I have plenty left to lose and it should go down, but, I am at an awkward stage!!


I am going out of town in a couple of weeks. I am beginning to think about how to manage my food and what in the world to wear!

Thanks for that. I needed to be reminded today that I am stronger than my cravings. Right now am eating the leek soup for lunch and am having a difficult time getting it down. Couldn't eat the choc chip cookie for breakfast either.

WI#1 -7.5 WooHoo

Hi, all. I just had WI#2 and I'm down another 4 pounds. There's no doubt in my mind that I owe this forum for my staying 100% OP. Thanks to this forum, my current (and so far successful) mantra is "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels". Soooo True!!!

Yes, sometimes and just for a while, this diet leaves you with a funny looking shape as it works on an area but leaves the others alone. It'll even out but for a while it is a little funny.

beckyjo, I so agree with your thoughts expressed in this message. I hope I get to the same place as you on not letting food control me any longer.

You totally made me laugh with the "staple them to your forehead" comment...I totally get what you're saying too, because I've been the same way lately. Even with pill boxes I've been forgetful, that must be why I'm so sleepy every afternoon about 2:30. I am going to try and do some of the suggestions everyone on the board has given.

In the past 3 weeks I have lost about 2 pounds and just sat there. I weighed in at 174 and the strange thing is I'm now in a size 12 and some size 14's depending on the brand. All the new (to me) clothes I purchased are feeling looser though, it's like I'm loosing inches, but no pounds. Am I just dreaming this? or does this really happen?? Do some of you find you don't lose pounds for a while, but the inches keep going down? It just seems really strange to me I guess.

Wuv, hope I didn't misrepresent what I thought I saw in a previous post re Mio.
Nope not at all and you are correct

Happy first day of spring, everyone!!!

Cadu - yay on feeling so good!! - I really notice how much better I feel w/o carbs - why didn't I figure this out before?
rissimo - whoo hoo on the 3 pounds!
Jelbeangrl - hope your trip is going/went well - good job on planning so well with packing food!!
Chloe222 - whoohoo on the 3.5#!!
Beanie Mommy - so exciting to be so close to half way - wow!! great job!!
hyrysk - Great on the 6# drop after adding in a 4th packet!
2012s new me - keep up the momentum - I see a lot of posts here on 3FC about having some weeks where you lose more inches than pounds. I can't wait to see the 220s again!
DanafromAustin - great on the WI and even greater on the lean muscle mass!
Tripmama - I so need to learn how to make kale chips - will search the forum for a recipe. Sound good! Way to go on admiring your smaller butt!!
le506 - I so know what you mean about how hard it is to remember those darn supplements! Before IP I only took pills as I woke up and when I went to bed - so that was easy - keep the pill racks on the nightstand. But having to remember to take supplements with the meals and snack - I need a better system...
justme685 - wow - great WI!! 5.6# is awesome (and the inches are great too!!)
IPdivajen - good luck with your WI tonight! (and I'm eagerly awaiting my siggy too! LOL)
jenn04 - good luck and keep us posted here as you start your IP journey!!
jbezanis - great job on the 7.2# loss at your WI! It's so motivating to get off to a good start (my first WI was 7#)
MaggieD - and ANOTHER great WI - yay!!!!!
alaskastarr - awesome to be in size 12s and 14s! As I said above, I've seen a lot of posts here at 3FC say that you can have weeks where you lose inches (and everything fits better/looser) without losing pounds. The scale will catch up (or catch down, as it were!) with your inches!!

So here is my update: WI#2 today - another 3 pounds gone!!! And inches too, but I forgot how many she said. I really notice that my scrubs (I work in the operating room) are fitting MUCH better. Hopefully soon I'll get out of the 3XL bottoms... Thanks everyone for reminding me about water - did great over the weekend when I was scrapbooking w/ friends (had that Tervis tumbler always filled and next to me) but today at home I'm just forgetting - so it's filled again and next to me. I found some drink mix at the health food store called Stevita - lots of different flavor choices, all sweetened w/ Stevia, and 0/0/0. Just over the past week I've noticed that I think they are on the sweet side (can it be my taste buds are already changing?!) so I make them more dilute than the package suggests.

Keep up the good work everyone!!! I'm so excited to be on this journey with you all!

Jen... waiting eagerly for her siggy line and a ticker.

Because of my exercise I know my loss has been slower, but I am doing what I think is healthiest for me long term.
You know my coach has a lot of muscle and can weigh much more than people thinks she weighs and wear a very small size.

Yes.
Some weeks it just feels like inches are coming off and some weeks they hardly budge. Good to see you. It's been a while. Oh and congratulations.

Did anyone struggle with the Big C during their first couple of weeks? I am having my second weigh in (two days early) tomorrow, and I'm stressed bc I know I haven't dropped any weight since my last weigh in bc I can't poop. Any suggestions or poignant stories?

Just an update. Surgery went well. Lost three pounds on phase three in the last two weeks. That was a surprise. Will stay on phase three for a couple more weeks to maximize healing then back to phase one to finish up. Yippee.
