Haven't posted lately because life has been crazy. I am still 100% OP, but that would not be possible had I not planned ahead.
Last week, I cooked all weekend. One day I cooked several meats for the freezer, and another day I cooked several big batches of different veggies.
With our crazy week, having things precooked was a lifesaver! I cannot imagine how stressful things would have been, had I not had IP protocol meals ready to come home to.
Starting my morning with coffee w/splenda and 1 tbsp skim milk - having breakfast in an hour (another cup of coffee, cold, with a chocolate EAS shake and ice in the blender).
I am not an organized person, so forcing myself to plan ahead has helped me stay on plan. Now, if I could only learn to plan ahead and organize the rest of my life......

I started June 25th. The scale has not been moving as fast I would like, and I haven't lost inches in a big way. There were weeks that the scale or tape measure didnt move, frustrating for me, but compared to some others it was for a few weeks only and then seemed like I would drop 2 lbs. The last time I had a weigh in after 2 weeks with no loss it was a 2lb loss and the tape move 1/4 inch off my hips and 1/4 in off the chest. The waist hasnt moved in 6 weeks.

2lbs from goal and P2, my ultimate goal is to stay between 125 and 130, so I am there now, but I've learned here that you gain a bit in P3 so I want to lose a couple more to stay in my goal range. I am doing all the research now with help from 3FC and everyone here.

Sonolady - thank you for your reply. I anticipate the same struggle. People have quicker progress when there are pounds to loose. I'm hoping this program will re-wire my brain - portion sizes, no sweets. Im trying not to eat restricted, because I don't want to think its OK to eat waffles or chips or cookies. I dont want to have them after this program, so I shouldn't have them now. Its not easy by any means.

I am a vegetarian for 37 yrs, eat healthy foods, whole grains really no junk. Martinis on the Sat night, nachos, pizza and pasta were my down falls as well as being very happy in a new relationship for 12 yrs. So the weight crept on and I couldnt get if off no matter what I did. For me I believe it was eliminating carbs and IP and the crew here taught me how to do it so it works! I know I cant go back to what I was doing, its a life style change

Good morning!

Restful weekend planned, so I think I'm going to spend some time cooking and preparing for the week ahead. There's a chocolate waffle recipe that I want to try out. Also bought the IP double chocolate brownie, so I want to try that out for the first time.

Have a great fall weekend!

Good morning, week 1 is over and down 6lbs quite amazing. But hard work too. Woke up a little light headed this morning, not sure why. A little tired of the soups with 2c veggies at noon and it's only been one week, any suggestions? I'm excited too, already see a difference in my body . I know it won't be like this every week, but I'll sure take it this week. Good luck and eat healthy to everyone. LittleStar, I liked the chocolate brownie, hope you do as well

Oh, yes, going out to dinner tonight for the first time since I started the IP, a little nervous about that. Will see a movie this afternoon (Gravity) with DH (not sure what that means...darling husband, damn husband or something I'm guessin') Church tomorrow and golf on TV, we both love it . Hope everyone has a good weekend. SONOLADY, love your posts .

Directions for quoting are in the first post of this thread
Lots of info there if you haven't read it

I'm not sure what you mean by "fine your buddy list"
