Your coach is supposed to tell you about this, but you should DEFINITELY be using a back up (barrier) method, just in case.
Oh, yes, i have read about it on this forum and in IP documents; it was just annoying to have it happen the day I went in for my annual exam! Thanks for the response! I am just hoping I don't have to go back for another exam...

Also...very discouraging weigh in today...3 weeks ago at my weigh in I had lost 6 pounds in one week...now the scale hasn't budged since. I need some encouragement!! She put me on a really low week (shakes and puddings only) so hopefully that kick starts things again...I was so upset today! I realize there could be many reasons like time of month, hormones, etc, etc...but come on...someone who is morbidly obese has got to lose weight doing a thousand calorie a day diet...but nothing in 3 weeks and no cheating??

There are MANY reasons you could be not dropping weight.
Have you had your thyroid checked?
There are many hormones that can block weight loss. Cortisol is one of them.

The other thing: some of us have found that ADDING a packet helps some folks lose, especially folks over 250 (you are close).

Are you eating salads every day, too?
Adding your oil TO your food (not just cooking with it?)

I just went to SEVERAL IP clinic pages. It is unrestricted.
I wish every coach would stay current
Makes is end up pretty silly to pay them!

Yes, had thyroid checked when trying to get pregnant...not since I had my son though. Yes, adding oil to my salad...yes, salad twice a day.

Incredibly frustrating for you!. I'm stalled but I'm MUCH further along and have reaped MANY benefits from IP. Just remember, most coaches are FAR from experts.

Adrenal fatigue could be another factor. Unfortunately most of the mainstream medical community knows little about treatment of cortisol imbalance or adrenal fatigue. They also aren't as good at optimizing thyroid. They only look to see if it is within clinical range. Pregnancy could have altered that thyroid functioning, as well.
Something is definitely wrong if you are sticking to it 100%

Why don't you start using the What I'm Eating Today thread
There are folks there who can offer insight.

Are all of your meats super low-fat? Some of our folks have found better losses with mixing it up and having higher fat meats once or twice per week (salmon & steak for example).

Don't give up while seeking a solution!

No, last week I had beef tenderloin 3 times....still lean though. Tonight I had a big ol fatty pork chop...not OP but had that same train of thought today as you as far as some fattier meat. She is going to do measurements next week as well, but from my rough measuring it does appear that my waist has gone from 39 to 37.5 in the last 2 weeks or so...but still, you would think some weight loss would accompany that at my size.

I want to know how many of the folks keep their weight off 1,2,...5 years later. This is my next big adventure...maintenance. Something I've never done before.

From the episodes of BL I HAVE seen & the abuse they endure, I can only see that they are hurting their endocrine systems, in addition to a multitude of other systems.

I won't watch.
It is just too bad people have to be mistreated or misbehaving for it to be considered "good" TV. "Good" is not "quality" in my book.

Balanced Life: Re: Reading
Did you read all the links in the first post of this thread?
HiLisa! I did look at the threads and they are awesome. I thought I remembered some books that you have referenced and recommended so I was trying to find those as well.

Hi ladies,

Today was my WI - my home sale had me down 2.5 lbs but my coach's only .5. I get that all scales are different but we have been consistent. What I'm struggling with is that I'm working out too much she says and not eating enough. I scared to add the extra pack for days that I exercise but she thinks my body is hanging on to the fat for energy.
I have also lost 3lbs of lean muscle which is not good. I'm doing about 5 to 6 workouts a week, yoga, light - medium spin three times for 30 min, and then the rest a mix of core and weights.
If people have had similar experiences would love to hear and that adding the extra packet will really help.
Thanks
