I'm so frustrated with only a 0.7 loss for the past 2 weeks. I know that any loss is a loss, but it's still disappointing. I'm thinking that if the scale isn't moving by Mon that I may do bootcamp for 4 days and see if I can shake things up a bit. For those of you that have done this, should I wait another week and see if I'm really stalled or would it be ok to do this after 2 weeks of minimal losses? maybe I'm just being impatient, but I'd really like to keep up the momentum!

I set my new target this morning at 179. That should qualify me for an insurance discount.

I am really still trying to wrap my head around being overweight and not obese. That is pretty cool and still not real to me.


Yesterday I was 100% OP and breakfast this morning was also. Lots of writing planned for today. But, I also feel likel I'm getting sick, so I will rest a bit too.

Cindy,
No harm in doing boot camp, I'd go ahead and do it. Also many of us, including Wuv, had weeks where we gained for no reason. Just trust your body and think big picture.

Also during those weeks where my losses were minimal, I knew that a bigger than usual loss was most likely coming up. And remember that there could have been a NSV, your body busy readjusting its dimensions, so you could be smaller here or there and not realize it.

Hope that helps. You're doing well, keep up the good work! Let us know what you decide and how it goes.

You have lost a lot of weight. How do you feel? Almost like a new person? We are about the same height and 2 or 3 pound change is huge for shorties.

Have you started weights? Any workouts? Is it Tom?

You are doing fabulous.

Congrats on moving out of the obese category. Great job

Good morning everyone!

Another good day for me yesterday. I actually love this diet, which is not something I've ever said before. I peaked on the scale and see a big loss coming this week (TOM last week), so I'm very encouraged by that.

I am planning on snowshoeing with the kids and hubby today. I am really looking forward to it. I have newfound energy, and 25 lbs lighter seems to make a big difference in how much I can do. Can't imagine what 50 or more lbs lost will feel like!

Have a great day everyone!

Good morning everyone,

Today is day four, yesterday I wanted to eat my arm off yesterday!But my consultant called me and told me to eat or have another packet so I made a raspberry jelly (which actually was quite good) and that worked!

I'm feeling lighter!

I don't see enough info to give my thoughts. How long did it take you to lose the weight you've lost? Did you have a change in measurements when the scale slowed? A true plateau would be about a month of no scale OR measurement change. You still had a small loss.

I had two slower weeks but stuck with it. And I was rewarded.
My initial thought is impatience. We all get that way. It took us x amt of time to gain the weight but we want it off NOW! (Mostly we just don't like the deprivation of a diet so want it over now).

Without the additional info, personally I'd give it a bit more time. There are sooo many more factors to weight loss than just carbs/calories/fat. There are hormones such as leptin, ghrelin, cortisol (and more). There are neurotransmitters involved. Everything has to be in sync. PLUS your body has to adjust to weight lost & sluff off unneeded skin, blood vessels and other supporting tissues. If we're following the protocol, we need to trust that it works!

When you say bootcamp, are you talking about a workout bootcamp? If so, I've done a few in the past. In the one's I've done, most folks gain a fair amount of muscle (in addition to burning fat, if they have any) which might offset any losses of weight? I think that could be one possible problem, maybe others who have tried it can comment.


But more of a concern to me, they were very strenuous, very high calorie workouts, a few hours every day, and I don't think I would do them on IP, even with extra packets. I would be afraid of my body burning muscle protein to get the calories required for the workout. Again, I don't know what type of bootcamp you are talking about, but I wouldn't attempt the one's I've done on IP. Maybe there are less strenuous ones out there? I do know one person who started working weights heavily in phase 1 and he lost muscle, leaving him looking gaunt and emaciated, even months after going into maintenance.

edited to add: Have you thought about adding light exercise that would be less than a bootcamp? Also, I just saw you said 4 day bootcamp...that's less than the one's I've done (two weeks), which may make some of what I said not applicable. Bu still I'd be concerned if it was a few hours a day.

IP bootcamp is basically 5 packets, no restricted, no meat.
Usually done when stalled.

Just checking in with everyone this morning. I've had a house full of sick kids and adults. I'm starting my second cold for the week Not expecting too much on the scale right now with all the sickness and lack of sleep. Just trying to survive and stay OP. I had to cancel our weekend plans (including new years) because everyone is sick. Oh well, better to keep the nastiness to ourselves than get our friends sick.

Congratulations to everyone for the losses and NSV's! One more holiday to get through to the new year OP! WE CAN DO IT! I have so much to be thankful for, and the world reminds me of that every day. I don't know about the rest of you, but I am SO glad I decided to start this diet before the new year. I'm already over half way to goal, something I never would have imagined when I started in October. Looking forward to getting the rest of the weight off and moving into maintenance.

I'm also in my first week of a reboot after being away for 3+ months. I made veggie puree and dilute that with 12 oz water to make a soup, which I have twice a day. This is in place of my 2 cups of vegetables at lunch and dinner. (Still have packet at lunch and 8 oz protein w/ dinner.) The added volume helps me feel really full, something I need in the first week or so while getting back into ketosis. For me, it works. No terrible hunger pains, not that my stomach didn't growl, but it was manageable.

Helped that I saw Les Mis yesterday and was away from food/kitchen for a long time too.

The jello you ate has the added benefit of collagen, helps with tightening skin.

Best of luck to you!
Chloe
