I do think a little tweak here and there make a diffence on this plan, that's why we are all very careful to read labels, figure out % from fat, etc to maintain the right balance for fat burning. I never said I was looking for anything "magical," just input on what may be making my experience this time different from my last. I have the willpower and strength to do this, thanks anyway for the warning.
I think you are doing really well. My losses were slow the first time on IP (2011), but I stuck with it & I will this time, but I get a little ( not alot) discouraged sometimes, but the weather probably is as much to blame. lol
Keep up the good job

HI KNM, welcome back, glad you had a good vacation. Sorry I've been too busy to read or type much on here lately.
Hey Sunflower! How's the job going? Glad to see you're sticking it out! I know we both struggled staying OP before the holidays, but now it's crunch time! No more excuses for either of us!

I'm only on day 4, but so far so good. Haven't had any major cravings yet. This happened to me last year in January too. I just had no interest in anything that wasn't on plan. I have to some how remember this feeling in a week or a month or six months when I feel like eating an entire candy aisle.

I realize it's all water weight so far, but I'm down 2.4 since Monday, so that's keeping my spirits up!

Hello Peeps!
Well, did my weekly weigh in today and I'm only down 1 lb. I know, I know, a loss is a loss, but I'm so disappointed that I'm not experiencing the 2-3 lb per week losses that I did first time around!
I just don't feel the same way I did last time around either.... that ketosis energy rush, kind of flighty spacy thing didn't happen to me. I miss that sorta hollow, but not starving feeling I had last time too. 's weird, right?

RN4 - You're doing great, and you have tons of support here. So many of us are feeling your struggles. Keep up the great work!

This time the body figures it out more quickly.
Pat & Lisa, Thanks for your wise, calming words. You both reaffirm why I come here - for peace of mind.

Okay, When I was originally going thought IP I thought everyone was NUTS with their "food" dreams. I officially had my first. I was dreaming I was eating pretzels, and not just a couple. I honestly woke up in the morning confused trying to figure out if I actually ate pretzels or not; STRANGEST feeling ever. I now understand the crazy food dreams, especially since I am not a pretzel fan and have no idea why I would dream of junk food I would not normally eat. Haha!! the mysteries of the mind.

A question out there to those of you that use myfitnesspal. I just recently started to track my foods. I understand the calorie thing. I understand my protein intake will be listed as high. On average how much fat either percentage of daily fat or total grams should one be having?

Happy dance for you! That's great. I'll take 2.4 lbs anyday. Still stuck at one lb. loss two weeks in a row. Still OP this week and hoping the body will give a little at WI this time around. Good for you!

I made if through the week, but now the weekend cravings are already starting. I checked this morning and I'm in ketosis, so I was really hoping I wouldn't have to deal with them. Clearly it's all in my head and the routine that I can eat whatever I want on the weekends has to change! Thankfully there's no junk in our house and it's cold enough out that I don't want to venture out to buy anything off plan!

Sometimes I can't help feeling ketosis is over-rated as a hunger-suppressant lol!

Hi knm, congrats on getting back on track this week. The job is going OK, not my ideal job but it's good money so I'll take it. Have a wedding to pay for afterall

I have been staying OP pretty much but feeling tired these days, especially today. Some days I'm buzzing with energy and some days I'm feeling sluggish. I don't know how anyone could exercise on this diet, I would collapse I think.

Anyhow good news for this week, I lost 2 whole lbs on my home scale. Official WI at the coach's office is not til later, but I updated my ticker. So close to the 130's, I can't wait!!

Way to go Sunflower! That's great news! You'll be at your goal before you know it!

I've only been on plan since Monday and down 3.6 lbs. Like I said before, I know it's water weight, but it gets me to goal that much quicker, so I'll take it! I've adjusted my goal back to 120 from 125. We'll see how realistic that is when I get closer, but for now, that's what I'm aiming for!

Hi everyone just restarted yesterday after being off for a while. I fell back into some bad eating habits but this time around my head is in the game.

I'm losing only 2 lbs a week on purpose. The first go around I dropped 10 the first week and 3 to 4 every week after but due to my hospital stay I have decided to do it slower (hospital nothing to do with diet). What I love is I can control it. First go around I didn't allow myself any restricted so I could experience the maximum fast. This go around I'm eating restricted sometimes twice in a day and for the 6th week in a row I've lost 2.4 or 2.2 every week. I allow myself more meat and more oil and more of anything IP approved and see how it affects the scale to learn what I can do. I am just amazed how I can control the scale. Love this program.

Getting together with some other IP girls for the first time today to cook together. Can't wait we are all making something to teach the other. I'm making the oatmeal wildberry muffins and my pizza using the tomato soup to make flat bread.... can't wait to see what they will make.

Everyone have a great IP day!!!

Hey I doe
I thought I knew all the muffin recipes but I don't think I've heard of the oatmeal wildberry muffins. I usually make the muffins with wildberry and crispy cereal. Is it the same recipe made with the oatmeal packet?
Have a great time!
