Default Beginning of a new year

Hi everyone, with the beginning of a new year we are going to have a lot of newbie's so I thought I would start a thread just for them to introduce themselves. Let us know where you are from, how much you would like to lose and when you are starting. Also for the oldie but goodies that have been around for a while, lets give the newbies some totals to what you have done so far with IP so that they know this is going to work for them as well.

This is going to be my second new year on IP. WELCOME to everyone, use this site as another support tool, there is a lot of information in the sticky section at the top along with recipes. Check in on the daily chat for accountability, you can also check in on the home of the 100% thread. Those of us there have been on program without any slip ups what so ever. Feel free to join in as well.

I am Lisa, I have loss 206lbs in 86 weeks with about 6 left to go. I am from Biloix Ms

Hi everyone,

I have been around for a couple of weeks, but haven't formally introduced myself!

I started on IP at the end of November and have lost 23lbs. I knew it would be hard to start right before the holidays, but I was up to the challenge!

I live in Ontario, Canada, in a very small town. The nearest mall is about a 4 hour drive. However, I am very lucky that the local pharmacy has IP and is providing me great support and coaching.

I have 2 daughters who are 7 and 9. One of my main goals is to be able to do more with them. I have already noticed a difference in my mobility and energy, and actually went snowshoeing with then yesterday. They both love figure skating, and hope to join them in family skate one day!

Thanks for the welcome, and I look forward to the support from this site, and to hopefully provide others with support too!

And Wuv, you are an inspiration! Thank you for sharing your journey.

Great idea, Wuv!

Hi, all! I am Elizabeth from Illinois. I started IP in late July and lost a total of 56 pounds by Nov 26. I am currently in maintenance (phase 4). Not sure I could have done it without all of the wonderful people here.

Hi everyone,

I started Nov 12th and have dropped 25 so far. Love the diet the first few days were rough but once I saw my first wi it was all worth it. The holiday was tough but taking it one step at a time. I hope to at least drop 100 pounds.

Welcome & good luck

Hi everyone, I have been around for almost 2 months now, My husband and I started November 7th and we have both lost almost 40 lbs each (next weigh in I should be at the 40 lb lost mark!) Oh and we are from Iowa!

I in total want to lose 107 lbs. Some days are better than others, especial with 4 kids and sickness going around, some days the stress wants to make me fold but I haven't yet and it's the best I have ever done losing weight.

It's so worth it!

Hi! My name is Holly and I started IP the last few days in April. I have lost over 60 pounds and phased off early this month. Now I am back on IP 100% because I lowered my goal weight and I want to lose the 5 I gained over Christmas. Welcome to EVERYONE! This program is truly AMAZING, the only program that has worked for me.

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!! I have been on IP since November 30 and have lost 20.3 lbs and 17.75 inches. My advice to the newbies - hang in there the first four days really suck but I promise you it does get better!

Hi everyone - glad to find this forum. I started on the diet on the 26th and it's been a little rough due to morning nausea, but I'm hanging in there. I'll look for threads on how to best deal with it. I started at 220 and this morning my scale had me down to 212 (Goal is 150). I'm thrilled at the loss, but almost seems too fast. I've read a lot of posts and it doesn't seem unusual so I won't worry as I'm sure it will slow (and then I'll be bummed A Happy, Successful New Year to All!

Hello & Welcome! My name is Cindy and I started IP on May 25th, and have lost 55 lbs & 41 inches. The support here on 3FC was instrumental in my achieving my goal! I recently moved to Phase 4 (maintenance), but probably should have waited to do so after Christmas. Like Holly, I'm back to P1 for a week or so to lose the few lbs I gained back.

Hang tough through the first few days, and you will be amazed at your first WI!

Hi everyone. My name is Faye, and I've recently started Maintenance after having lost 53 lbs. I've been dieting using the IP protocol, but using alternative products, since late March. I'll be 62 in February, and my weight loss was definitely slower than some, but I'm thrilled that I got to my goal and am now following the maintenance protocol. I have to give a shout out to everyone here at 3Fatchicks.com... I seriously don't think I'd have met my goal without the support and reinforcement available through this site. Coming here daily definitely helped me stay motivated and focused.
