I made the zucchini muffins this AM and had them with Hazel nut coffee and man oh man were they good! Today is better than yesterday. I do not have the munchies as bad as Monday. I hope my week goes better and I can lose big (Monday may have already hosed it up )

Smile Introducing Myself

Hi, everyone, my name is Melissa, and I started IP today. I spent many hours on this forum this weekend looking up lots of info and recipes. What a marvelous bunch of knowledgable and supportive people there are here! I went for my initial appointment at my local IP center yesterday afternoon, and after reading so much this weekend, I felt like I could've led the introductory session myself. Just like most everyone else here, I've been on numerous diets over the years, and I'm sick of never really fixing my problem long-term. My doctor recommended this diet (although he has no affiliation with the program at all), so I started looking into it. It just resonates with me. I want to break this unhealthy relationship that I have with carbs, and I like the structure of the program. I've found the answers to so many of my questions by searching the forum, but I do have a couple more......is chicken broth allowed on this diet? It wasn't listed on any of the info the clinic gave me, but I don't really think it has carbs or much fat??? I've sauteed veggies in a little chicken broth in the past and liked it. Didn't want to do it until I know it's ok, though. Also, does the water we mix into our packets count towards our daily water intake, or is that separate? Thank you all for all the help I've gotten just by reading your posts. This site is a real gem, and I'm so glad I found it! I hope everyone has a great day.

It's so funny. I regularly have 4 packets a day when I am hungry and that is like 2-3 x per week. While everyone is different, it has worked for me.

So I had my weigh in and I at 155.6. Goal was 155 so I am still not past it, but I am calling it GOAL! Especially since I am adjusting my goal today to 150 and will reexamine when I get there.

Welcome Melissa! I buy organic chicken broth that is 99% fat free and use it to saute veggies and in many of my meals all the time. I also like it in soups and sauces that I thicken with a little xanthan gum.

Good luck on your first day. You will look back and realize this is the day you changed your life, and will not regret it.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! Hey, call it GOAL and say the .6lbs is part of your clothing, lol!!!

So you do 4 packets on occasion too? Good to know because I felt SO guilty about having a Milk Chocolate Pudding after dinner last night.

Thanks and Congrats again!!!

Stop feeling guilt! The program is DESIGNED for you to have more than 3 right now at your weight. Perhaps your lean mass will stabilize if you have the correct number of packets

Hi dmp! Welcome! There are a few of us that just started with VERY similar stats. It's funny how our weekly losses are all different but we've all lost the same overall.
