Good for you pushing through! I know that the first week is the hardest, but soon it will be easy. Did you eat all 8oz of your protein? Drink all your H2O? Did you eat your snack after dinner and before bed? You can also have cucumbers, celery, lettuce, and dill pickles for a snack or get that hunger feeling. I also find that if I start to feel hungry and I have eaten all my food and drank all my water I go work on a project. An example for me would be to work on one of my quilting/sewing projects. I hope this helps. Hang in there, you can do it!

I have 3 birthday celebrations this coming up this week and feel it's not fair cause I'm not cheating but I am not losing.
PLEASE stay with me! You need to have faith that this will work! Some days I have no loss then the "whoosh fairy" comes...stick with it, you will!!!!! Some people say some weeks there will be no weight loss but they will lose inches. I know its hard not to get discouraged because I have been there several days too but dont lose hope....we're in this together!

started the Novi Cleanse yesterday. According to instructions this will be a two week program, so I will be done in time for my next WI.

I just realized that I have only been OP for 7 weeks and I averaged a loss of just over 3lbs per week. My goal was to lose 100% of my weight by the official opening of the Artisan Market. I have 18 days and 5 lbs to go.
Great job you are very close to goal!! Enjoy your nap.

I'm still doing my snack in the mid-afternoon since I don't stay up that late at night, and that seems to be working. I'm also glad to be eliminating soy from my diet after everything I've been reading lately, and it feels good to be getting back to a more balanced diet.

Hang in there everyone. If I can do it, you can, too! And the rewards are so worth it. *You* are worth it.
I am so looking forward to hitting goal and P3 breakfast. Congratulations you are an amazing inspiration!!

The clinic I go to asked me if they could use my before and after pictures but I'm not sure if I want to do that. My after picture is great but after seeing my before picture.....not sure I want to do it lol. They said I would get $100 in IP products if I let them. We'll see.

Great job!! I think is is an honor to have them ask. What an inspiration for others. (and the free product doesn't hurt either). Be proud of your accomplishment, you worked hard for it.


Good morning everyone!

I peeked out side my window and it snowed again overnight, I don't know about anyone else but my 'winter' seems to be dragging through my spring.


Other than that it seems like a good day, headache from the last few days is gone and just thinking about my day and how late I work. Figuring I should have dinner before going to work and then my snack at work and lunch when I get home. mmm well dinner first anyway, I know I won't feel like cooking that late.

Everyone have a great OP day!

I too am ready for winter to let go of spring!!! I want warm!! Glad your headache is gone.

Way to power through! It gets better, stick with it!!


WI for me this morning was down a pound. I've been way more active this week: moving file boxes to storage at work and spring cleanup in the yard at home shoveling doggie presents My muscle mass was up and fat was down, I'll take it! And clothes are fitting better

Week 1 WI today and down 5.4 lbs! At first I was disappointed thinking it should be more but pulled myself outta the negative boat and realized how awesome 5 lbs is! So far everything is going well, still not hungry and forcing myself to eat though. Definitely got the side effect of sluggish BMs so wonder if once I get that fixed it will be better! Looking forward to week 2!

To everyone who's feeling a little down about their weight loss - please remember that this program works. Don't give up. You have so much support here and so many people willing to walk you through the down times.

We all have them.

Hang in there. Especially as women - we have these hormones that like to play tricks on our bodies so it can really effect our weight loss. I know a week before TOM visits that I gain muscle weight (water retention), but the after TOM leave I lose it. It will even out, but if you can log it each month where those ups and downs are, you'll be less likely to be frustrated when it happens because you'll know exactly why it's happening.

Cool Questions, Questions, and more Questions.

Okay you IP Pros out there, I have a few questions about some different foods and ingredients to shake meals up a bit.

Kale is like lettuce but is it limited to 4 cups a day?

Do any of you use canned diced tomatoes to make a sauce? How do you count that towards your restricted vegetables? What about paste?

I have seen recipes that split a IP protein pack and then read to eat 1/2 of another protein pack to get all 3 complete protein packs in one day? Thoughts? Is this okay?

I have seen several recipes that use milk or veggie cheese. Are these ingredients okay to use on phase 1? Once a week?

Where can I find sugar free syrup flavors like for coffee and such that do not contain aspartame in them?

Ummmmmmmmm. I cannot think of anything else to ask at the moment, but I am sure something will pop into my head. Thank you in advance.

On a more somber note, has anyone had kidney problems on IP? I'm going to have to go for tests as I'm having "flank" pain. My chiro suspects it might be kidneys since it happened to me on Atkins 15yrs ago. Darn!!!
So body, you want me to chose between two organs huh?? kidneys vs pancreas....hmmm.
Hope I'm wrong, cause I'm NOT getting off this diet.

1. Kale is a veggie, measure as a veggie (spinach, too, according to the P1 sheet. Not all greens are "lettuce"

2. I make chili with tomatoes. I just measure EVERYTHING so I know how much is there. I don't do a lot of limited veggies so didn't worry about it too much

3. recipes: I'll have half of one & half of another sometimes. some people even mix meat and packets & figure it all comes out evenly throughout the day. If it works for you, fine. If not, know it isn't technically the way the plan is designed (remember, plan is designed to be EASY...)

4. Veggie cheese is not technically okay on P1.
1 oz of skim milk is on the P1 sheet daily for coffee
Again, some folks make "tweaks". Some people have more luck with the tweaks than others.
My thoughts: can I live without it temporarily?

5. Sugar free syrups: Torani is splenda sweetened. I get it at World Market

Kale is limited to 4 cups a day

I measure the sauce and diced tomatoes just like I would fresh tomatoes. I'm not sure if that is correct or not, but I only do this once every couple of weeks or so.

I'm not sure what IP's stance is on the splitting of packets, but I have done it before.

Milk and veggie cheese are not approved for phase 1. I've used veggie cheese sparingly in the past, only 1-2 tbsp at a time. I haven't done it in a while because that small amount didn't add much flavor and wasn't worth it to me.

World Market, Amazon, netrition.com and Walmart all have the sugar free syrups. Google Torani or DaVinci syrups to find them.

3rd WI today. This weekend (Sat. and Sun.), was traveling into a remote area, and believe or not, couldn't get veggies w/o going 30+ miles. And I didn't find that out until Sat. at 9pm. I don't shop on Sunday, so I just went without.

I think that may have affected my weight loss, but I don't know if it was a big deal, or will hit me later by losing muscle or something. Any ideas? In any case, onward!
