Firebug-- make sure you are getting your salt in. That will help with the headaches.

I have had terrible headaches the first 5 days but suddenly they disappeared and I am on my 8th day. I guess my body has adjusted to the new routine. Everyone here on this site gave me so much support and I am going to do the same.
Just stay strong for the first week. It will get better. I cried on my 4th day and wanted to stop this but the wonderful people here gave me the strength to continue.Trust me it will get better.

When I first started IP, I read suggestions about putting some salt in the palm of your hand and licking it (or stirring into shake/drink). That actually did help with headaches. I would put maybe 1/4 to 1/2 tsp in my palm and lick it, then swig down some water. It also helped with muscle cramps.

Default Headaches

I get bad headaches when I go off caffeine.
I'm guessing that the first week is hard for lots of folks because they have stopped coffee and because of lack of salt. A double whammy.

Hang in there, it's worth it.

I'm on day 3 of P3. Scale is up a little this AM but will not worry (yet) as the Big C is hanging around. WI is Monday, that's "real"

Does anyone have a app or program that they use to remind them of accepted foods and what needs to be taken supplement wise when? I am going to pack a cooler/lunch box with my foods for that day but given my long shifts (14hrs) and not knowing how much energy I will us during them I am allowed to have 1 more protein on hand. But I am having trouble with remembering the supplement schedule and which snacks are the restricted ones. I am sure this will all come together over time.

For work, I had put all the different supplements in little baggies identifying them for example:

Vitamin C: 1 B / 1 L
CalMag: 2 L / 2 D
OMEGA-3: 2 S / 1 D etc...

But you'll see that you'll differenciate them in no time!

I make little baggies for supplements out of snack size zip locks, one for lunch and one for dinner/supper. I have an iPhone and set reminders to go off daily at 11:30 am and 5:30 pm. Those reminders help me remember to take the supplements. I would NEVER remember on my own… I know myself too well.

I too cried on my 4th day and wanted to stop. I came here and posted about my struggles and got some amazing support. I am on Day 18 and it has gotten much easier. Hang in there!!

AWESOME PROGRESS! Congrats!

Happy Thursday all!
I'm having a hungry day today for some reason so I jumped on the boards from work to get inspired.

I ate my afternoon snack already and will push lunch a little later and hope the afternoon isn't too bad. My snack today was the IP lemon wafers. I like them a lot because I like lemon... however, i don't feel as satisfied with those as I do with the bars or even the heartier shakes. It's interesting. (Even though I've moved to maintenance in the last couple of weeks, I still often use IP products for snacks) Anyone else feel that way about the items that are a little more "treat" oriented?

Hope you all have a great IP day!

I found that following hungry days was a good loss. Hope that is the same with you!

Good morning! I'm back from my 8 day trip to CA to tour colleges with my daughter (most of you probably didn't notice my absence ) and it was a very successful trip for her. She narrowed down her choices and had some great meetings with diving coaches there.

It is soooo hard to eat out every meal of the day (other than breakfast). I took my IP packets and WF dressings with me. I'd say I kept 85-90% OP while there, it's the cheats that killed me I'm sure. It was my daughter's birthday while there, so yes I did have a couple of bites of her desserts. Also, I was hanging out with family and had a few drinks out two different nights. For the most part, I stuck to the plan. All of my meals were IP compliant. Getting all the veggies in is hard when eating out, but I did eat at least one salad a day. That was easy to do in the college cafeterias with their salad bars.

So...I'm about to go WI. It's been two weeks. Was hoping for a loss, but at this point, I'll be greatful if I maintained. We walked A LOT...I hit over 10,000 steps 6 of the 8 days while gone, including tons of stairs. Those college tours are awesome for that.

Back to plan...working hard to my goal. It's hard to have some cheats and then get back to plan. However, I did shop for smaller clothes before going and was able to get into sizes that I haven't seen in a very long time. I cried in the dressing room...happy tears!! Hoping they're all too big soon though.

Anyway...hope everyone had a great couple of weeks!
