My past two weeks, my weight loss has been slow. I recently upped my water intake during the day and within two days, I'm down 2lbs. I need to remember to drink water throughout the day, instead drinking most of it at night. Silly mistake!

Have a wonderful day!

The added advantage to drinking it throughout the day instead of all at night is less bathroom trips in the middle of the night!

I find when I up my water I get better losses too.

Default Help me find the Ideal Alternative link?

I've seen several references in the boards about the Alternatives, but cannot locate them? I'm a newbie who is considering IP to help me lose weight for improved health, but concerned over the expense of the program and would like to try on my own first.
Thanks!!

Good afternoon everyone. Day 1 is going well.
@dsertflwr yes let's check in together since we are starting the same time. Evenings are my worst time, pulling out all the stops this evening and white knuckling the urges to snack. I introduced myself late last night on the weekend thread. I did try IP last year but didn't follow it through. I am back again because the possibility of losing lots of weight by following the rules is so tempting. I am so excited but my past history with diets makes me nervous. I am entering into this with my eyes wide open, no sabotaging myself this time. Good luck everyone.

Just stick to it. Don't give yourself excuses to cheat and it will work. Believe me, I am sitting here wearing junior size 5/6 pants!

It is my past history with numerous unsuccessful diets that is making IP work for me. I'd given up on my own ability to make the right choice several times each day.

With IP the formula is so clear and simple that I don't have to trust myself to figure out what will or won't work. Just stick to the plan and see the results.

I think the later phases will then help to lay the foundation for good choices, but for now I'm very happy to just work within the Phase 1 formula.

Morning! Day 4 of my "Garden of Life Wild Rose Herbal D-Tox" and honestly haven't noticed my body going through any type of 'detox'. None of the symptoms. Guess that's a good thing!

InTheEvening...great job on not getting upset and doing something rash like going off plan! You figured out your problem and took care of it. That really shows how much you've learned about your body.

One of my really good friends started weight watchers last week. She doesn't need to loose that much weight, maybe 15 lbs or so. She got me really excited about joining her once I finished my phases of IP. I told her i'd give it a shot but it may not be the right plan for me to stick to for maintenance. we shall see!

Hope yall have a great day!

Good morning! I'm happy to say that my area is finally out of the snow belt (hopefully for good this year!). The weekend was spring like and this week looks good too. Amazing how this can provide me more energy and a positive outlook!!! I am feeling for those of you still dealing with the snow.

WI #4 is tomorrow and I'm hoping for 2-3 lbs. Since I got rid of the flu bug and was able to eat food/IP foods again this week, I wonder if I'll have a rebound of a pound or two?

Clothes are starting to fit more comfortably (don't think enough to move down in size yet) so that is also a great feeling!

Happy Monday and President's Day (if you live in the US). I am lucky - have today off - however we are swamped at work so have my work laptop at home with me to do several hours of work.

I am hoping for a whoosh at the scale this week. WI on Wednesday.
