I feel so bad.

Congrats to all of the "losers" this week!!!
Be thankful and proud, for even the tiniest of losses.
I lost nothing this week, would kill for a pound!
Not sure what my body is up to.
I have not gone off of the program

Thanks, NewPath, you make me feel better (boy that sounds bad). I was not even going to post today as I am exactly like you. Nothing this week. But, I'd kill even for a tenth of a pound. So, we're not alone. Not that it's any consolation for either of us. As you know, though, we need to keep going, OP. These weeks happen. Our bodies just do it in their adjustment to losses. Still, it is hard to handle.

Come on, we'll make it.
Molly

For the most part, it is ruining my entire weekends....even effecting my moods and effectiveness with chores, etc.
One thing that will help is going during the week, in the mornings, once I am done teaching. I think that part of my problem is that during the week I am so incredibly busy....I do not really even notice or care that I am on IP. I have gotten so used to it, that it is automatic and easy. When my week ends, I start to relax, forget about what I have done, and worry.
Seriously, each week, when I see the scales move down, I get choked up...as if the weight loss is some miracle!!!!
The more the diet has become effortless...the more I worry......
Rant, rant, rant.......
I think that is a good idea, less stress should be helpful.

I'm still emotional 3 hours later , I blame it on Wellbutrin and the Hormonal factor, but it still sucked big time.!
I too still get horrible nightmares, I won't go into the details but I know what it is like to wake up with your heart racing and tears streaming down your face! I always wake up DF and he holds me until it subsides, asks me what it was about. Talking about it seems to help calm me down. I'm sorry you had to go through that it is no fun.

I want to help you with this. Can I help you to PDF or do you have one master PDF that you're entering them into? You could always insert them in to the master PDF. Let me know

Next goal after that will involve more help from ya'll, compiling UP TO DATE info in a packet / pdf of all phases, all nutritional info in a spreadsheet (think nutritional fliers at like, subway that list EVERYTHING for EVERY item on the menu, but for IP packets). Then will start spreading into the drinks, the alternative products, and ugh, there goes my brain again...if anyone sees it bouncing down the street, please throw bread crumbs in the general direction of South Dakota and send it home. Thanks
This looks great! I love it

We will get there too!
So true, Will. Just told my folks I'm bringing my food to put on the grill! Had my shake and off to the cook out I go!

so I'm at a surprise party at this very moment, there is peanut M&ms (my fav), chewy cake, AND cheesecake with pecan praline sauce (which I could eat by itself it smells so good..nom nom nom). Not a single vegetable in site. I'm about to die... I haven't cheated yet though!!! Just went to the fridge and found some cucumber (which I usually love, but it doesn't seem so delish right now haha) And my mom, who is also on IP, took a bite of crab dip! shame on her! but I'm not giving up, even though it looks like my weight has been pretty stagnant for the last week and a half, and I'm lacking motivation. Speaking of, I'm pretty sure I'm at a plateau. Advice??

Anyway. It is only because of all of you that I have not cheated yet! Even though the scale isn't moving, I know to trust the program and keep going! NO CHEATING FOR ME!

Hi Everyone - Some great NSV's today ! Way to go Vet - I bet your wife is loving this diet now !

I just read NewMoms post and she has made me doubt my decision to phase off for the summer. When I started this diet in January, I set my first official goal for onederaland. I hoped to achieve this by July 1st. I am about 6 lbs away and I am confident I will reach my goal. After this I still have about 35-40 pounds to reach my ultimate goal.

My plan was to phase off for the summer, so that I could enjoy the weekend bbq's and a very occasional drink. I am not a big drinker and have had no problem abstaining, but I would like to be able to have a couple of ceasar's sitting by the pool this summer. I also would like to be able to enjoy the occasional baked potato on the BBQ and a hamburger....with a bun!!!

What would everyone suggest for me. Phase off and start back in September or continue phase 1 and allow myself the occasional cheat on the weekends?

All your advice would be appreciated.

Continue with phase one until you are done! My coach has a saying in a picture frame in her office... It reads something like 'if you want to lose weight you will, there are no good reasons for not doing it, only excuses' I might have butchered it but I'm sure the heart of it is there.

WELL SAID!! it's just that...everything about this diet, not just the physical part of it, but the mental part too is so important. you must believe in yourself.. you must finish what you started without deviations.. i wish i wouldn't have phased for 2 weeks. Plus, the summer time phase off (or weekend cheats) will have their repercussions and you can be worse off than where you started. i started this diet RIGHT before thanksgiving.. i didn't cheat on thanksgiving, christmas, new years, my birthday, st. patricks day....etc etc or any days in between. trust me , it wasnt easy, but i'm here and i'm so happy i stayed true to IP the whole way!! sorry to rant on your quote, i know it was made for the other girl, but i just had to

Good Day all! Another beautiful sunny day here and I just finished water-sealing the deck. New Path and Molly, you'll be A-OK as your still OP and there is no gain so it's still rockin! You ladies are just waiting for next time when the "Whoosh" Fairy makes a big visit! I know you'll do fine. Am a little light-headed at the moment due to the the product for the deck, but all is well! Had my snack of the strawberry wafers....I think they are almost my new favorite, and now off to practice my euphonuim for a bit. So grateful to be on here and keep up the terrific work everyone!

Hi Port, I think the IP ones are about $28 or so. I bought some Dr. B ones and they are about half the price of the IP ones.
