Renee, Huge congrats to you!!!! You must feel so fantastic and be so thrilled! It's great seeing another success story!

If you are willing to share ... How long did it take you to erase those 41 pounds and did you have fairly steady losses the whole time? If you'd rather keep that private, no worries! There are no time tables for dieting, that's for sure!! But I am curious as to what typical loss rates are for IP dieters.

It would be cool to see avg statistics for the entire population of 3FC IP subscribers. But then again I love numbers. Call me a statistics maven. I dream of the day I can log into the 3fc site, surf to the IP page, and see a Daily Summary page:

"Our 530 IP subscribers lost 184 pounds yesterday and 1,043 pounds in the past week."
"And the total weight loss for all members for all time is 22,458 pounds."


It could run off the numbers people punch into their PROFILE (as members update their weights). Wouldn't that be a cool board-wide ticker to watch and marvel at ... as the collective weight of our entire board membership slowly shrinks!

I have no problem sharing this; in fact, my start date is in my profile. I started the last Sunday in August, so I spent almost exactly three months in phase one. My losses started off gangbusters (as they tend to do) and then settled to 2-3 pounds per week.

Wow, those are FANTASTIC results!!! That's really not long at all. You just "zipped" that weight right off!

Yes, I too have seen some gradual slowing of losses. Typical as one loses weight. I have a feeling I am going to plateau out before I reach my goal as I haven't been at my goal weight for over 20 years; but I shouldn't have to worry about that for another few months at least.

Thanks! Hubby has had great results, too. He is down 60 pounds in the same time frame. So exciting!

Have a great weekend!

Thank you all for your ideas and support through this process. Before starting, I never thought I would get here, it seemed so far. But in retrospect, it was easier than I thought it would be, and I have learned so much about myself in the process.

Cheers, and Happy Holidays!

Congrats Renee!!!!! I am SO happy for you!!! I have phased off as well but am short of my goal. We started at the same time and close to the same weight. Good luck with your maintainence. So far so good for me!!

Congratulations Renee! I've been watching your posts because we started the same day and have similar stats. You are an inspiration to me! My weight loss has been slower, but it's coming off. I plan to start phase two after the holidays. I think it will be easier for me if I stay on phase 1 and hopefully I'll be at goal as well! Keep up the great work. Can't wait to hear your updates as you progress though the phases.
Corey
FYI I'm not sure what's going on with my ticker, but I'm actually 160 lbs...can't wait to be in the 150's!

Thanks, everyone! Your support has really helped me during this journey.

First phase three breakfast today. Went BIG TIME shopping yesterday to prep for the two weeks on phase three. I plan to use some of the recipes from the Phase 3 breakfast thread, too. Yum!

ReenHag - congratulations are in order. You have made such great and steady progress and now you have made goal. WOW!

OK Augusters - let's all hang in here and make good progress towards our goals. I have slipped and slid around a bit but bound and determined...

Yes, we can do it! This month can be tough with lots of holiday events and dinners and such, but with a little planning we can certainly stay OP and get closer to our goals.

I probably have another 3-4 months if the rate at which I've been losing stays the same. Sometimes that feels like so long, but when I stop and think about how long I've been overweight and how that has interfered with aspects of my health and life, 3-4 months is a small price for the opportunity to be slim and healthy!

So I've stopped thinking about the long term. My focus is 10lbs by 12/31. Certainly that seems more attainable then another 30. Little chunks at a time Ladies! We can do this!

I like this - manageable chunks

Your pic is looking skinnier and skinnier.... Keep it up!

IP POWER to all the Augusters.

Well Augusters: Here we are another month on this journey gone. How's everyone feeling? I'm tired of the diet, Gosh how I wanted a milkshake tonight but I stayed strong and didn't cave. The 43 lbs feel so much better than that milkshake would have tasted!

Stay Strong ladies!
