Good morning everyone!

Happy to announce that it didn't snow last night so there will be no shovelling for me... At least not this morning!

A weird NSV... Every night in bed when my husband puts his arm around me he comments that he can feel my bones, and my new nickname from him is Bony McBonerson. Lol not sure where it came from but it makes me laugh every time he calls me it.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good morning everyone! Into week 3 of my restart and still feeling good. But TOM showed up a bit early and I've been having some terrible cravings for the past couple of days. The worst one is sushi. So what did I do? Went online and ordered a sushi making kit from Amazon and I'm going to make California Rolls with cauliflower rice and asparagus instead of the avacado. I can't wait! I've never made sushi before and I hope it turns out ok with the rice and asparagus. Now I just have to wait for the kit to get here.

Hope everyone is staying warm!

That's because Skinny McSkinnerton just sounds too weird. :dizzy:
Wonderful to have the support on the home front!

A balmy 6 degrees this morning. But maybe a mental trip to Aruba on the treadmill?

Everyone have a great OP day. Remember how you got to this point and imagine where you want to go.

Ha! Too cute! I notice now when I take a bath i feel my tailbone or when I'm laying on my side, my knees aren't comfortable! Such an odd feeling!

Laying in bed this am, waiting on our "snow" to arrive. The parish borrowed some salt trucks and salted all our bridges early this am. Hopefully it'll help and our entire town won't shut down again! I think mother nature decided to turn our hurricane days into snow days this year!

shrinkingsusie 01-28-2014 10:05 AM

Added some cinnamon to my pancake this morning... YUM!!

Vippysue 01-28-2014 10:36 AM

Snow due here in GA this morning! Crazy!
Week 3 begins today. Down 6 lbs in 2 weeks! One half a pound more and I'm in the 150s. Looking forward to saying goodbye to the 160s forever!

Envious. It was -6 when I drove to the YMCA this morning.

GettinHealthyNow 01-28-2014 12:01 PM

Hi all - feeling discouraged and a bit angry this morning. Had my WI with my coach last night, and hit 50 pounds down. Great, right? Well, she didn't think so and has threatened to "fire" me from her program - I'm on strike one. Apparently I am not losing fast enough. They only want complete success stories and don't want people on the program who don't fall in to the 3-4 pounds lost each week associated with their clinic. I was shocked.

I will admit that no - my head has not been in the game as much as it should since Christmas but I have continued to lose each and every week, and I'm certainly not going on any binges - my crimes have been not drinking enough water, not weighing my dinner meat (so likely having too much) and erring on the side of chocolate packets twice a day instead of the non-creamy options. But she didn't go into any of that. No questions or discussions as to why my losses have slowed, just an immediate assumption that I've gone off the rails and been cheating.

The whole thing left a really bad taste in my mouth (pardon the pun). Not about the program (due to my involvement here with all of you) but certainly about this clinic. I'm still just a bit stunned and not sure what my next steps should be. I'm afraid to leave them all together because the structure is what's been successful for me - but I think I'll go off on this woman if I have to keep seeing her. Sigh. Talk me down, ladies.

Wow, absolutely ridiculous! I am so angry! Completely unprofessional and demeaning.

Can you speak to the owner or another coach and explain how you feel?

That is so unprofessional. I haven't lost 3-4lbs per week but I lose. There are a lot of things that can affect your weight loss, such as medications. I know for a fact that the 3 medications I take are affecting my weight loss. But the treatment you received is outrageous. If you don't get resolution through IPN's ideas - is there another clinic close to you?

nolasmurf 01-28-2014 12:18 PM

Absolutely go off on her! You are paying for at service not the other way around!

As far as structure, I need it as well and have found that by being active here, I still have structure. Maybe it's in my head,but I don't want to disappoint the ladies and gents here by slipping up.

65x65,Lisa, and RuthAnnimpart lots of wisdom and a swift kick in the butt when needed,lol Thank you ladies!

Staceyhay 01-28-2014 12:25 PM

Well I had my first weigh in last night and I am 4 pounds down. That is the most I have ever lost in one week. Very excited and motivated to continue. The only problem with last night was that I seem to have gained in inches in places. It seemed weird, but I guess next week it should be better, right. Thanks for all the encouragement through your posts that I read.

Staceyhay 01-28-2014 12:30 PM

Oh, and I made the butterscotch pudding into a waffle last night. Man oh man was it good. (Day 7 for me) My kids even commented on how they wanted waffles for dinner. :) I love all the recipes that go with the packets.

This probably because they measured you slightly different this week. There is a lot of human error involved in the measuring so take it with a grain of salt.

To the poster above who got in trouble for not losing 3-4 a week. That is crazy and there should be a way to report them to IP or something. I have lost 32 pounds in 13 weeks, so not heating that mark at all, and my clinic is very happy with my rate of loss.

Ditto what IPN said! That is outrageous. I would be looking for another clinic.

You are doing great, there is no need for the coach to say anything negative about your losses.

PS - Now drink your water! :D

50 lbs in 20 weeks is amazing! Don't let an idiot coach keep you from celebrating that!

I make them with the banana pudding all the time, but I haven't tried the other flavors yet. My regular breakfast is either banana waffles or crispy cereal pancakes. LOVE having a hot breakfast...definitely not what I did before IP.

Good Morning Ip'ers


This evening I am heading over to my friends house to explain the program to her. She watched me on my first round and was wondering how I was accomplishing so much. That will be a great NSV if she starts and successful.


Went grocery shopping yesterday and this mornings shake was quite tasty and just like I remember from my first round. Yay for Madagascar Vanilla sugar free coffee syrup. Also treated myself to a little cherry fizzy water yesterday. * have a soda stream* Not too shabby I say. Can't wait for TOM to go away then I wouldn't feel so bloaty.

Oh Sweetie
This is so unprofessional and evidence of a huge lack of training on their part!
First: IP changed the avg. weight loss weekly over a YEAR AGO!!!! It is no longer 3-5 lbs.

You are doing GREAT and don't let anyone make you feel otherwise.
It takes a LOT to lose 50#

You can certainly have chocolate packets twice daily, if you want. I don't know why you feel differently about that. Sure, there are a few packets that are lower carb/cal but the whole plan is low carb/cal/fat so you're fine! The only reason to tweak anything would be if you had stopped losing and that hasn't happened!

Drink your water, weigh your meat and CELEBRATE your 50 lb loss!

sasyblond401 01-28-2014 03:07 PM

Waist Trimmer
 
I got a Neoprene belt to take out inches around my waist.

Has anyone used one and lost inches? oe weight. ???????????????????????

canadjineh 01-28-2014 03:15 PM

Hi GettinHealthyNow: Talk to the owner, without the old coach being there and get yourself a new coach. Once you do that, speak to the old coach with dignity and tell her that you feel she is not a good fit for you as a coach so you have gotten another one. Do not bring yourself down to her level, just speak calmly without blame or namecalling. If things get really desperate and you want to leave the clinic, enlist the help of a friend as coach. Give her the information on the 4 phases (google online) and work it by checking in with her weekly. A quality scale that measures body fat percentage and hydration and bone mass according to your age and workout levels cost me under $70.00
But first take a deep breath, count to ten, and say out loud to yourself "I am in control." You can emphasize whichever words you need to for the psych, good luck with this!

GettinHealthyNow 01-28-2014 04:32 PM

Thank you everyone for all your responses and validating that I am not wrong to be upset about this.

I did say to her last night that I was taken aback by her attitude and didn't understand why my weekly losses should be taken as a "strike". She is away on vacation next week and suggested that I just take the week with no WI as a time to "reflect on my goals". I said no - I wanted to WI with one of the other coaches (there are three of them) so she said fine I could meet with one of the others who perhaps could "discuss my situation further". I then got quite ticked and said "Frankly, I don't see that I have a situation here at all - and I'm getting angry so had better leave now". And we left it at that.

So I've got my next WI on Saturday with another coach (5 days between WI instead of my usual 7). Will see how that goes.

Thanks everyone - as usual you are all so helpful.

Wow, she needs to take some time and reflect why she's a coach. I'm sorry, I am still mad about this.

If it was me I would speak to the owner...you don't deserve that kind of treatment.

You've gotten some great advice today.
Call the owner and have a very frank chat.
That way it can all be done "ouside" of your WI time.

Good for you SarahBell! You'll be glad you did.

GettinHealthyNow... Wow, I am shocked and mad for you. We are all in your corner and you have been given great advice. Good luck and I am so sorry that you've had to put up with this. 50# ROCKS! It's awesome. No if ands or buts about it.

Mmmmmm... People have been mentioning pancakes/waffles.... I may need to consider a new breakfast idea. Sounds like a yummy warm breakfast. Warm would be nice :)

Happy Tuesday all!

shrinkingsusie 01-28-2014 07:41 PM

I'm starting to drown in my clothes again, and today a guy I work with was like "whoa, did you lose a bunch more weight in the last few days?!" I just told him I'm trying to put off buying clothes lol. I feel as though I'm starting to lose a lot of inches, like my skin is playing catch up.

dak1lls 01-28-2014 08:04 PM

Vippysue: congrats on your losses!

Shrinkingsusie: great nsv's! Bony butt and baggy clothes! Yay!

GHN: oh boy, I am at a loss for words. I would just echo what everyone else is saying. Support is so important and her comments would have been hard for me to take. I am mad, mad, mad for you!

Staceyhay: congrats on your 4 lbs loss! That is stellar!

trynagn 01-28-2014 08:52 PM

GHN ---I just wanted to say congrats on 2 levels. 1) for the 50 gone- that rocks!
and 2) for keeping your cool in an awkward situation. She is in the wrong line of work if she can't be positive for her clients. So hurray from us!

I second that! This "coach" has some serious baggage that has nothing to do with you. You managed to lose 50 lbs in spite of her! You have what it takes inside you to reach your goal.:bravo:

Gettinghealthynow-
Congrats on your 50 lbs lose.
I echo everyone's advice and look forward to hearing how your chat went. It sounds abusive what you went thru. It sounded like you handled yourself so well.

Sarahbell - enjoy the new gym!

I went and bought new pants today and was so surprised and happy to fit into size 15 which is out of the Plus dept. I haven't worn size 15 since before the twins were born.

Congratulations on the major NSV Jenny38! :carrot: I kinda miss the Macy's plus size dept. The sales staff were the best--friendly, gave good fashion advice, and always made sure customers got the lowest price. The regular dept has loads more choices but it's impersonal.

As far as structure, I need it as well and have found that by being active here, I still have structure. Maybe it's in my head,but I don't want to disappoint the ladies and gents here by slipping up.

thanks nolasmurf
I help here because I believe I need to give away what I have been freely given in order to keep it

I'm glad it is helpful to others, as well.
