Default Ideal Protein: Starting 1/1/13

I went to the dr. and did my physical to start Ideal Protein on 1/1/13. Going to the clinic on Thursday 12/27 to weigh in and purchase my food.

I'm excited!

I have weight from two babies to lose........would like to lose about 30lbs and know how to do it the "right" way but want to do it fast. I'm willing to tough it out for a couple of months to do it!

I am also restarting the first of the year. I lost 30 pounds about a year and a half ago. and sadly, I have gained it back. I need to get back at it, I refuse to give up. See you on the boards after the holidays.

Start reading/learning now! I read these boards for quite a while before I started IP and it was very helpful!

Much success to you!

Hi Brunette! I actually just started myself...12/12/12! I just decided to jump in with both feet,LOL. I have lost about 10 lbs so far! I expect the weight loss will stall a little as I struggle through the holidays and all of the off limit foods! But I am already ahead so as long as I don't gain...then I will be happy!


BTW, I've heard that if you start weaning yourself off of sugar and carbs in the week before starting the program, the first few days aren't as difficult (Fir me it was worse than quitting smoking! I was sooo edgy and cranky!)

I hope you have a great Xmas!

Hi yogacoffeelady! I just started the program myself and it's going really well! I'm finding it easier to "tough it out" on this program beacuse I am actually losing weight quickly! I hope you have the same experience~!

Merry Xmas!!!

Prior to starting ip I was already eating good, had switched from white rice to brown, then went on to quinoa.

But the friend who introduced me to ip asked that for 3 days I eat all the carbs and sugar I wanted so that in the coming weeks I would not feel deprived. At first I didn't like that idea. But it did help me get all my carb cravings out of the way

I would like to start the alternative IP plan if I can figure out how to find it on these threads. I did the ip plan two years ago last November and lost nearly 50 pounds of course I like some of the rest of you have slowly been gaining it back since thinking of course the weight will stay off .. I can eat carbs.. just kidding myself .. Anyway I am willing to give it another go.. I will keep reading the threads and hoping for some encouragment to get me started.
