Good morning everyone. This morning I hit my goal. 80lbs gone. So I'm going to take a moment to enjoy it and reflect on my experience.......ok, now that's over. I've been teetering back and forth on whether to stop or keep going for about 3 weeks now. Last week, I decided that when I hit my original goal of 80 lbs, that I would give myself 5 more weeks to loose an additional 25 lbs. This will bring me down at an even 200 lbs and in the event that after I have stopped the Ideal Protein and resumed "normal" eating habits I gain 15 or 20lbs back, I will be in a lot better shape that if I stopped now. But I don't plan on gaining that much back!

Some I noticed this past week. I've been getting a little dizzy and light headed when I get up too fast or if I am bending over and stand up too quickly. I was evening a little light headed when we were out shopping this weekend. I am hoping this will pass. I experienced a little bit of this around week 5 and 6.

I hope everyone has a good day. Only 2 days till Christmas! Oh and for all the Seinfeld fans, Happy Festivus!!!

Congrats Allend on hitting your goal! 80 lbs is a huge achievement!

Are you getting all your salt in? I know if I start getting lax on the salt I get dizzy (or, dizzier, according to dh!).

Good morning!!

We were supposed to get hit with another ice storm last night, but from looking at the small amount of ice on my windshield, I guess it didn't happen. Thank goodness!! So many trees are falling and branches breaking from the storms the last two days.

Hope everyone keeps warm and safe today!!

sologirl Yup, PC points. I can get 600 points this week on romaine hearts and 400 on cucumbers. lol Then it listed a bunch of organic chips/cereals, etc.

Had my first WI this morning - 5 pounds gone! I was thinking it would be more but I don't have that much weight to lose. I feel great so that's what is important!

I've done the cleanse but I have a hard time doing the pills more than a couple days at a time. (I travel for work and it doesn't go well when you have 45 mins between bathrooms!) I never got constipated before and since I did it for a few days a couple weeks ago I seem to be dealing with constipation now.

My coach says to start out with half doses and gradually add until you feel its working as it should.... it can hit hard! LOL! I did it again for the weekend so we'll see how this week goes.

lilkel This is my opinion only, but I've never been a fan of cleanses because no one has been able to tell me exactly what exactly it is supposed to do. If you have functioning kidneys and a liver, your body does all the "cleansing" needed - no need for an expensive "cleansing" product. I'm sure people more knowledgeable than me will jump in, but that's my 2 cents.

Allend: congratulations on reaching goal.

Congrats to all the weigh in's today. Mine was at -2.4 this morning. I'm so happy I didn't succumb to all the temptation this weekend.

Lisa: welcome to sunny FL This weekend was beautiful.

My mom did the cleanse from the IP clinic and it did nothing for her! When I first started, I didn't go for a long time, even though I was eating the 'leafy greens' people recommended! I take probiotics everyday and don't eat 'leafy greens' daily and seem to not have the Big C problem anymore. Everyone has a different body so you need to find what works for you. The way I look at it, if IP is going to give me the Big C, I'm going to find a solution for the entire time I'm on IP (so a daily probiotic) rather than a quick fix (like a cleanse).

I suffered from the Big C when I first started IP, but I find that ice cold water in the morning gets things going for me.

Hi everyone,

Allend428, congrats on 80 pounds! I often get the dizziness when I get up. For me, I think my blood pressure medicine (very low dose) may need adjusting because of my weight loss. I am hesitant because I know that my bp is higher during the week. (I teach 7 th grade, that says it all) and the dizziness is usually on the weekends. For now, I just put my head down and take some deep breaths. Have you noticed any patterns with the dizziness? Mornings? Too long between meals?

Lisa, thanks Onederland feels pretty good. It has been 10 years since I have been here. I intend to reside here for the rest of my life!

As for the cleanse, I would say no. You still lost weight this week during a crazy social time of year. I have dealt with C a lot during my 3 months on IP. I started taking Metamucil fiber caplets and someone recommended a tea. (Smooth move)

Lots of errands to do today, but it is pouring rain

Ruthann, Kawaii and I have a joke about Twoderville being the town next to Onederland. I messaged her that I now reside at 199 Onderland! Lol
