Just dropped in to say good morning. Actually feeling pretty good today, feel like i have tons of energy actually!!!. I have to say i'm really liking IP. I didn't think i was going to get past week 2 with all the headaches but this is week 3 and i've been headache free for 3 days now!!

I have a question about egg whites. I see a lot recipes or discussions about using egg whites. I was checking out the nutritional statement which says that the whites only have 0.2 g fat and 0 carbs and sugar and 6g protein. Could this be used is phase 1? I like egg white omelets and thought this would be a nice lunch with an IP protein drink.

Have a great OP day!!!

Good morning,
Yesterday was my first weigh in down 7.5 pounds. But today I stepped on the scale and I'm up a pound!! I was feeling amazing yesterday, lots of energy. Now today I'm just bummed out. I didn't change anything yesterday compared to any other day.

Well just weighed in at home and it looks like I am 4 or 5 pounds past my goal for today so with clothes I hope to hit 6#'s lost. Is it 10:40 yet!

Good morning I P family!

Wuv, it's always nice to see your smiling face first thing in the morning!
Pretty: nice WI! Congrats!
Wendy, so glad you're feeling well! IP will change your life.

Believe it or not, I'm wearing White jeans today!! (I usually clad myself in dowdy brown or black) getting so many compliments!
The coach supported my decision to move to P2 - so today I'll be having a different lunch and giving up a packet.

Wishing everyone a Truly Thrilling Thursday!!!

Good Morning from the East Coast - down 3.4lbs this week. NSV - today is the first day in years that everything in my closet fits me.....there is NOTHING that is too small. I think at one time I had 5 sizes in my closet, always hoping to fit back into the smaller sizes. I went from a tight 12 to a comfortable 4-6!!! And to top it all off it is long weekend in Canada this weekend. Could life get any better?

USMC Vet - Your losses are amazing! Congrats!

Mama: Try to stay away from the scale every day. While on P1 it's better to just go by your coach's weigh in weekly. The body fluctuates every day, and even hour to hour. You'll drive yourself crazy if you persevere on it! lol

Awesome! It's TOM for me as well, so that put a stall on my weight loss this week. But I stepped on the scale this morning, and it's moving in the right direction again.

Hi everyone! I haven't been on in a few days. I guess TOM has made me anti-social. I've noticed so many little changes this week. Every day I feel my belly getting a little bit smaller. I just wish my hips/butt would budge! Lol, I guess that's just what goes with being pear shaped. I got my WF order in and I can't wait to play around. A couple days ago I made turnip fries-- not my favorite. But last night, I made cauliflower rice for a stir-fry dish. Yum! I was able to find low-carb teriyaki sauce on Netrition.com and it tasted just like regular teriyaki, so I'm a happy girl.

This diet is amazing! The first 10 days or so, it was really hard to stick to, but it gets easier every day. I can see myself doing this without much of a struggle until the weight is gone! Whew, guess I had a lot to say. Have a great OP day everyone!

Good morning everybody! Rise and shine!!!

Dropped off a bunch of stuff at Salvation Army yesterday and got some groceries. Seems like I live at the grocery store these days...

Yesterday, I had to force myself to paint my back enclosed porch. I'm not even hormonal, as I am in menopause, but I just felt so weary and tired of this working so hard business. I know that if I don't push myself, nothing will get done and I will get no closer to my goal of selling the house, moving somewhere warm, living in a small place with no upkeep so I can focus on my art and music. I'm just so tired. I'm always so tired and have felt like this for over 12 years. Sorry...I needed to moan a bit. I really do try to stay upbeat but sometimes the pity-party will eek out, like it or not!

So, back to the porch today, full steam ahead. Maybe get started on the basement. Have a load of recycling in the truck for the next time I go into town. It still amazes me that in this day and age, the garbage haulers in rural areas do not take recycling.

Prettyone: congrats on your progress !!! You have such a lovely smile!
Wendy: most coaches say that egg whites are allowed, and some limit it to 2/day.
Mama21: It's probably just water or a bowel movement needed. Don't weigh yourself everyday - you'll drive yourself nuts!
Vet: great photos- thank you for sharing them. I still haven't managed to remember to get photos uploaded...
Dakin: white jeans! oh boy!!! I haven't worn that kind of thing in years either, and though I know I could, now...I haven't had the courage! Good for you!!!

Welcome to the newbees!

Okay, now I really need to get my butt in gear, have my oatmeal and get to work!!! Hope you all have perfectly a splendiferous day!!!!

Ahh you have taken back your closet, that is Sweet. I love finding new old clothes. I still have quite a few hold outs in my clothes, but they're getting less and less and the too big now outnumbers the too small.


Please do not stress over a pound or several pound fluctuation from day to day. It could be water retention or just that your body has not had a chance to get rid of everything you had to eat over the last day or so. The scale is now your friend. If you keep working this program you will loose steadily.

Prettyone!!!

You got rid of that tire you wanted to! Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! I knew you would do it. And 23.25 inches lost is wonderful. I sat in a chair yesterday, with my duty belt on that I could not have a few months ago. It was snug but not uncomfortable. You must be feeling similar things too.
