Default Small victories today

Keep up the good work everyone!

I had my weekly meeting this morning and achieved several personal goals:
1. I am down 20 lbs from when I started on 7/26/2013
2. Down 5.7 lbs this week
3. Halfway to my total goal!

I owe it all to zucchini, not cheating and making a big effort to stick to the plan. I'm limiting restricted IP products to soy nuts and really have gotten creative with packets...thanks for all the tips on the boards.

Good luck finding another job.. I would search via Linkden, and Indeed.ca is a good website, you can set up various searches.. good luck.

At my second weigh in he didn't even attempt to measure me - I was in a hurry (which he didn't know) so I didn't say anything but it left me feeling... like a customer.

Oh well DH and I do a measure anyway so I guess that will be the "official" numbers I use!
This is exactly why the alternative threads are so popular.
I needed more than a salesperson, which is what it I started feeling like.

Ahh! Thats good to know. I thought it meant an alternative diet plan not alternative products. I looked at them just now. Food for thought. Thank you!

My coach has never looked at my weekly meal journal and I have been checking in for seven weeks. I am down 14 pounds and lost 9.25 inches. I feel he is a product pusher. But I really get all my info from these threads and I am so grateful for those who have gone ahead and figured out how to make these great tasting recipes.

There IS an alternative plan for folks who can't be in ketosis for health reasons but then there are also alternative product threads...

It does get confusing unless you know which is being discussed

It was great when I was in a hurry and just added to some veggies.. then the last "mistake" was poin loin chops.. no bones and seemed very lean..
I have to agree with your coach regarding the sausage. Unless it was homemade it is very difficult to find ones that are lean enough, made without nitrates that also have enough protein to be used for your 8 oz without having the quadruple the serving size.

I also agree regarding the pre-cooked chicken. They very often have too many fillers and/or carbs. The teriyaki would be a no-go as well because of the sugar content.

However, I strongly disagree abut the lean pork loin chops. Those are perfectly fine to use and I have it very often.

Keep it up!

Ņo I've not been asked for my journal either. I didn't even think of that!

Does anyone know if the athletes protocol is posted somewhere? I'd just like to see it.

Does an athletes protocol really exist? I have never heard of it, and I have never seen it in these boards even after having read for I couldn't tell you how many hours. I would be interested in knowing also. It is kind of late in the day so if you think about it, re ask tomorrow when a lot more people will see it.

I don't believe IP does it anymore
Here is the thread where it was shared

Default On a ketosis "high"?

I started IP 6 days ago, using IP products and alternatives. On day 3 I felt like I was hit by a truck. No energy and the worst headache I can remember having. Feeling the polar opposite of that today, I feel so amazing, full of energy and I can't wipe the smile off my face! If you asked me how I am feeling I'd answer you "I'm feeling so good there should be two of me!" Is this energy I'm feeling from ketosis? If I keep on program, can I expect to feel like this most of the time? I'm 47 yrs old and I haven't felt this amazing in years!

Wow, that's really fast progress - lucky! It must be encouraging to see the scale moving along so quickly.
