Good morning all....had my WI #10 on Tuesday and was down -4...yay for a total to date of 38lbs!!!!! Hubby and i have changed to EAS drinks to try and ease the overall costs but will be watching for any slow downs. I also bought some Quest bars to try but again we will need to watch that they do not slow our losses down. Hope everyone had a great OP day!!!! Thanks for being here

Good morning all!
Hope all my American IPeeps had a safe and happy 4th of July!

The heat wave continues across the US, so please keep drinking your water and watch those around you - heat stroke catches you quickly.

To the newbie who started her own blog to track and visualize her progress - what a great idea!! I didn't do a blog, but am glad that in my IP signature I show my weekly weight change - its handy and helpful to keep seeing it.

Have a great day!

Once I am here long enough to use the signature, I too will track the weekly progress ... and I LOVE the "Will Power Dust" ... so many cute signature ideas ... only 19 more days to go :O)

Today is my first clinic appointment after my unauthorized break from IP... Actually looking forward to it bc I've been doing alternatives for the past week and really miss my IP foods. I'm at the same weight as bf the break, so my coach should be relatively forgiving. I hope.

Good luck with those WIs today!

Morning folks.

I feel fantastic!!! Did the BCA at my last WI and I've reached the "fitness" category.

I only have two shirts and one pair of pants left that fit........Going to have to budget for some new duds very soon.

Hope you're all staying OP and having a great week!

Josh

Between taking care of 2 kids and 34 dogs I was exhausted. I was asleep before the fireworks began

Good Morning Everyone!!

How was everyones day yesterday? Did everyone stay OP?
I did. Went to my dads for a BBQ and there were plates of cookies and brownies and you know what? I wasnt even tempted. It's so weird how this diet changes all of that, in a good way of course.

It sure feels like a Monday but I am pretty sure tomorrow will feel like Friday

Have a good and OP day today!!!

good luck at your appointment! My coach was mad at me last week. 2 weeks and only 1 pound lost. I told her i knew I messed up - it was 2 weeks of a few mistakes. I was kinda glad it was still a pound lost and no gain. Sheesh! I'm back on track this week though!

Good morning peeps.
Hope everyone had a safe, healthy 4th. I stayed 100% even though the oreo jar was staring at me as well. I just stared it down!

I spent a good 2 hours in my closet; pulling out all the old sizes. I have a massive pile to donate. I also found old size 10's that now fit It makes me smile everytime I open the closet door now.

Have a great day.

Renee
