I would have been on fewer weeks, but I went on a 10 day vacation and ended up just maintaining. I am now DONE! I phased off the month of October after changing my goal weight (up 5 lbs) because I could see my ribs and I was already buying X-small clothes and size 4 pants and skirts! While on Phase 2 AND 3, I LOST more weight! So, I'm really glad I phased off when I did. Since being on Phase 4, I've gained about 4-5 lbs. I'm good with it! I'm still skinny And, still wearing my skinny clothes!!!

I just want to encourage everyone to stay on the program. DON'T Cheat!!! It will only prolong your success! You CAN do it!!!
thank you for posting this - you are a true inspiration
10 weeks and 26 lbs wow, I'm impress
you're very muscular, did you workout while on IP?

I just feel silly buying another pair of 10s while I'm on a diet, but I really want some grey jeans while they're on sale!
Buy them! You will definitely be wearing them soon!

nolasmurf Are you feeling better today? It's cold here, too-- 23 feels like 20. But I think it'll be back in the 50s during the weekend.
Thanks for asking I am feeling a bit better. Still planning on taking it easy today, tho. My sweetie thinks that's half my problem is that in stressed from work.

Oh I hope you're home taking a sick day. Honestly I think we need days off just for our mental health sometimes.

First WI is for me today. I stood on the scale at home today and it showed a loss of 5.2lbs. Not as big of a Week 1 loss as some folks, but I'm pretty happy with it considering I was eating 90% paleo (so very low carb) prior to starting IP.

Will be curious to see if I lost any inches at my appointment today. My hips feel skinnier but my middle doesn't. I know this diet doesn't encourage exercise but I think I need to do a few planks to tone up.

Good Morning!! I have been on IP for two weeks now, and I need a little hand holding. I don't think I can stand another roasted vegetable, and I am starting to choke down my shakes and soups. On top of that, I strictly adhered to the diet, and yesterday I gained a pound. Any words of encouragement would be appreciated. I plan on sticking to the diet, but I am getting a little discouraged.

Is anyone using the Pure Protein whey powder as an alternative? I'm seeing that a tub of that is only $18.00 at Walmart and thinking I could sub that in for a little variety. Since it's cooler outside,I think I could mix that with my coffee instead of the cold RTD. Looking for option for a "warm" breakfast instead of a shake.

Please don't get discouraged. Look back at your week, hopefully you are logging your food, and see what you did. Tune in to your body and see if you are bloated, cramping, dealing with the Big C. If you can't point to anything, simply remember that some weeks are going to be amazing, some are going to be frustrating, but it is precisely those frustrating week where you have to rise to the challenge and keep trucking along. You can do this.


Good morning all! Today is the day - P3! I have my meeting with my coach at 10:30 a.m. and am nervous as ****. I have been trying to see about a way to incorporate phasing off with maintaining a keto-adapted diet for exercise reading the Art and Science of ... Eh, i forget the name but Lisa always advises it. It is fascinating but I am still reading it. So, for the first week of P3 I am going to try to keep the carbs low so not to completely knock myself out of ketosis. I will chat with my coach about it.

Tons of work this morning so off I go. Have a great day everyone!

Good morning IPers! Happy, COLD, day here in Illinois.
Question for you all. I started IP 2 weeks ago. Today I checked my blood sugar and it was higher than it has been in a while. I thought my blood sugar was supposed to be regulating. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Good Morning!! I started IP in June and lost 20 lbs but I gave up. I do not know why but I am back and starting today. I am very nervous. For some reason, I never finish what I start when it comes to dieting and I am confident I will make this time different (which is what led me to this site!). I am hoping that some of you holding me accountable may help me along the way a little bit. I am hungry today but hoping it will past soon!! Any suggestions or ideas would be great!! Thanks!

My first recommendation is to glance at one of the recent threads titled Restarting11/04/2013. These are not people who did the program long ago; they are people who fell off the program very recently and are stating back again. You may find some common grounds with them (and me!).

My second suggestion is to read and post - keep up with what is going on this site because there is lots of wisdom and experience here, as well as jst plain support through good and bad.

I found that starting back after three weeks off, it is a really tough road. You have to learn to live through the headaches, the hunger, cravings and whatever we all experience when we started the program. If you can hack it through a week or so of that, you may find it become easier and more automatic.

We are not perfect and we did not get overweight and out of shape by having good habits. You need to stand strong that YOU are in control of your health and life and there is not time to waste making the most of that. Do not let another day go by not being the person you know you can be. You are not alone and we will stand by you. Post your weights as you weigh in; become accountable in that sense. Discuss issues and challenges and you will get help.

Hang in there and just try to make TODAY a perfect day, then worry about tomorrow tomorrow!

Buy them! I bought a pair of pants yesterday (size 12) for only $8. Brand new and in a tall! Decided to hang them in the closet as I will be in them soon enough. Why spend extra on stuff when I need it? I'm using them as motivation to get there.

Great news for those who miss the Chicken Patty...they are being brought back.

They're also coming out with a Lemon Wafer now.
