January 2014 starters!
 
Hi Everyone!

If you're like me you started Ideal Protein in January, some of you have already hit your one month mark! Mine is on Monday!

I just had my week 4 weigh in and I'm down 1.6 lbs this week, but 1.8 was FAT and I gained 0.2 lbs of muscle.

My total weight loss is 13.4 pounds and 10 of those lbs were ALL fat. I am anxious for more, but very happy with the progress thus far. I haven't had a huge reduction in inches, a little over 9" at this point.

Also, I have been feeling VERY hungry the past two days. After week 2, my hunger pangs had totally dissipated, and I even ended up needing to squeeze in 2 packets at the end of the day. But boy is that different now. I am STARVING as I type this! Had mango ready made drink with some ice cubes and 1 cup baby spinach for breakfast and chicken a la king with 1 cup mushrooms for lunch and I am really really hungry! Anyone else dealing with this?? Pretty sure I'm still in ketosis as my coach told me she could smell it on my breath today.

How is everyone else doing??

Sounds like you are doing great. :carrot: Sometimes those hunger pangs happen right before a big drop in weight or body measurements, so don't be discouraged! Make sure you are getting in all of the food & water on the P1 protocol. I dealt with hunger pangs by having a little extra chicken (boneless, skinless breast meat). I'd suggest seeing what you coach suggests. too.

Thanks Mars! You just made me feel SO much better about the hunger! :) I hope thats what it is! I drink TONS of water, well over the 64 oz requirement, so that's nothing to worry about. :) I think I will add a little extra protein (egg whites, turkey, etc.) if worse comes to worse. Thank you!

Try some decaf herbal tea too. Having something warm usually helps with hunger for me. And lettuce - I eat a ton of lettuce, fills you up really well.

I started IP on January 20th. I am not event a full 3 weeks and I have lost 10 lbs.! It's pretty exciting, and seeing the weight start to come off has been a big help as well!

Hope everyone else is doing well also!

Thanks Ruth Ann. I did end up having 2 cups of mint tea. Did the trick! Quelled the craving, freshened up my something-must-have-died-in-there breath, and gave me a teeny bit of caffeine for that mid-day burn out.

Glad it worked! If you look in the tea aisle, there are tons of really good decaf herbal teas. I keep a bunch on hand for variety - can usually find something that hits the spot.

good morning

I just made in i in time for a January start - I started January 31 - had my 2nd weigh in on Friday and am down 4.8 lbs. I'm feeling fantastic and positive on this new journey- my problem is junk food and eating in the evening when I get home from work - I'm bored - so I've picked up my wool and started an afghan - Christmas gift projects!! lol
thank you all for being here and being such a font of information, inspiration and encouragement

let's all have a great day we deserve it

I had my third reboot and that started on Jan 11. After a month in, I'm down 15lbs. I'm full of determination and have the will power to finish IP this time. Good luck to all!

Mandy078 02-09-2014 08:58 AM

I started Jan 23rd and after 2 WIs I am down 10lbs and 20.5 inches. I love this plan! Only issue I am having is horrible heartburn for the first time in over 7 years. Is this a symptom of ketosis? Anyone else having this issue?

lisa32989 02-09-2014 09:00 AM

The best place to get your questions answered by folks who have been doing the diet Apis in the daily chat. Lots of support there.

FacingIt27 02-09-2014 11:14 AM

Mars!!! You were right!!! I was down 2 lbs this morning!!!! I'm absolutely ecstatic!! And I'm back in my old fat jeans which is an NSV I've been working on. (I had to buy new fat jeans in September, one size and two sizes up from my old ones) They weren't loose, but they weren't horribly tight! YAY!!!!!

And In The Evening, I started Jan 10, so we are just one day apart!

I'm glad you posted this! I noticed that there are sections for "maintainers" and "restarts in January" and other such groups, but I really wanted to get my foot in 3fC by meeting some January starts.

I started on January 21st and as of my weigh in for my 3rd week, I had lost 15 pounds! :carrot: I will be having my 4th weigh in on Wednesday.

Congratulations to everyone on their losses.

I have to say that I have been thinking about cake lately, and today I faced a difficult situation where I was dishing out ice cream on a yummy Costco cake for my mother's 78th birthday party...for MANY people. My mouth was watering pretty bad. But once the cake was out of my face, I was fine!!

Anyhow, nice to meet you all, and I will be sure to check in here more often now that it's started. :smug:
