Good morning. For some reason yesterday with the cold and snow I wanted to blow my diet and eat junk. I am proud to say I managed to ignore all my cravings and stayed 100% on plan. I feel so much better today for that decision. For me it is being stuck inside. I keep thinking of all the cute spring clothes I will be able to wear if I stick to the plan.

I've read that the lower percent fat the less it looks like loose skin. Have you noticed truth in that statement? Sorry if I'm getting too personal.
Nah, not too personal lol. I did have an apron and loose skin on my thighs and butt. I had a fleur de lys tummy tuck last year, which luckily was covered by medicare but will have to live with the rest cause i financially cannot afford to get it done. Keep up the good work. Loose skin is still worth losing the weight though.

Hi all!

Rough weekend for me, out of town and only moderately prepared. I bumped along okay, until the road trip part today. Then I blew it. But I am back and ready to be 100%. I feel so good when I am, I just don't know why those momentary lapses of judgment occur!

I'm outing myself here so I don't let myself create a personal environment of secrecy/shame/loathing/failure. It will help me to know I won't be fake here, that I can be accountable here. Maybe I should go back to my coach, who is nice but very....placid. I need someone to help me go deeper, look harder, tighten up the bobbles, question whether or not I am complying...and I am just embarrassed and frustrated that I let myself let go.

Sorry to dump on everyone tonight--I am tired and all from my trip. A good night's rest and a fresh start are the order of the day for tomorrow.

Same for me coffeebean...i rebooted so many times, would do ok all week then blow it friday night and cheat all week-end..so all week i would lose what i gained over the week-end, was totally wasting good money on IP products without ever going down.

But I guess its better than not doing anything at all as i probably would've gained a lot and i tell myself that if that is what i had to do to maintain then so be it.

How’s everyone week end go? I have to admit…i stayed on track but it was HARD and to be honest…i can’t wait to be done! The good news is that i lost 8.6lbs this week WHOO HOO Now i know that it will be much slower cause 5 of those 8lbs i had just put on the previous weeks so they were fast(er) to come off.

I made some baby bok choy yesterday, very yummy and different.

Have a great day and stay warm!

Hi,

I was doing fairly ok, but I really ate off-program on the weekend, comes Monday, I'm paying the price, I have to lose 5+ pounds this week in order to be back to where I was.

Many re-starts failed miserably. I stopped IP as I wasn't sticking to the plan.

Congrats on sticking to it! And your hard work is paying off. I, too, tried MANY times to reboot once I started gaining after doing IP the first time, and I could never stick to it. I just kept making excuses for myself and would go off plan for ANY excuse I could find. Well, with the new year, there are no excuses anymore. My mind is MUCH more at ease and clear when I don't play these games with myself and stick to it 100%. Day 28 for me today, and down almost 18 lbs. Feels wonderful. NO little cheat is worth it.

For me personally I had to go back to my coach as I need to feel accountable to someone I guess.

First day back and feeling okay, but I will feel better once I hit ketosis sometime later in the week.

Bravo!! I've seen this same scenario retold on this thread and want to add that I too lost, didn't phase off, was able to maintain for awhile but couldn't. I kept trying to do it on my own using alternate, etc. and I could not recommit. I inched back 35 lbs slowly over a year. I had a heart break that caused me to get real serious. One day I went back into IP office to get a few boxes and they restarted me for free! It's still been hard and I'm not doing it as flawlessly as the first time but I'm slowly getting there.

I went to a phase II, III, IV workshop and now realize what happens when you phase off you stay with it for life. I'm getting my mind wrapped around that idea because I need time to adjust. I'm rethinking now. Gearing up for life in maintenance because I don't want to gain it back and start over again. It's hard to start over, real hard!

I usually cook a whole chicken weekly either in the crockpot or oven. I take all the skin off of the chicken before I cook it. I can make salads stir fry or plain chicken all week. This way I do not have an excuse not to stay OP since my main meal is easy to throw together. I find if I plan ahead I do well on the plan.

I do this too and even portion it out and put in individual serving bags. Here lately I don't know where to find my motivation...which is silly really because it is all around me. This past weekend was an epic fail on my part but I am back at it! You would think going through the sugar with drawl to get into ketosis and the headache that comes with it would stop me from falling off the wagon. I think next time I want something off plan, especially with sugar, I'll just hit myself in the head with a hammer and save myself the trouble.

for myself and everyone else who needs it today.
