Just wanted to stop back by and say "Hi!" I started IP exactly 2 years ago today, weighing in at 264 pounds. I was a "100%" type for 6 months, and by Thanksgiving, I had lost 100 lbs. Kept it mostly off, but fell back a little into old eating habits (although I *do* exercise an hour a day), and slowly, slowly, weight crept back up to 192. Went back on IP "100%" on April 2nd, and today? I'm at 159!
I never transitioned off properly the first time, after one more week, I'm going to do it the right way.
My high weight was 313 on my 42nd birthday (1-13-07), and in December 2009 I weighed 296. So I'm down 154 lbs (not quite half!) from my high, and 137 from my IP start weight!
I truly believe this is "The Last Diet" I'll ever need, for several reasons. One, it has taught me what my body needs to be lighter. Two, if I do backslide? I know just what to do to nip it in the bud.
Keep up the good work, everyone!
