Last weekend I was on my day 3 and I had to cook for 10 guests, this week I had to go to team lunches where one day was Indian food and the second day chinese.

But I didn't cheat and the reward is sweet. Today I went for my first weigh in and I lost 7 lbs :-) :-) :-)

BTW, does your coaches take out 1 or 2 pounds for clothes from the total weight lost?
Nope, mine didn't either. I just tried to wear the same/similar things and take off my shoes and empty my pockets!

I wear almost the exact same thing to each WI (sweats, tshirt, even same sneakers) so that the clothes are not a variable. I assured my coach I do have other attire LOL. I was sooo glad when I recently switched to a smaller size of my "uniform" a couple of WI's ago.

Hang in there I promise it gets better! I felt awful my first week and even called in sick to work one day due to headache/lack of energy. I am so glad I stuck with the program -if you follow it, the rewards will come! The first week or so I drank lots of hot tea (helped with hunger) and went to bed early a lot (due to hunger/lack of energy). I have also done lots of logging on and reading others' posts for inspiration

My coach suggested the same time each weigh in, same or very similar clothes. She said some of the girls have her close the blinds & doors in her office and strip down to undies, lol. I just wore sock feet and tights with a drapey jersey t-shirt top and the same bra every time so my measures would be accurate. The weight that showed is what we called it. Didn't take any off for clothes.

Thanks, smallerin. I actually haven't had any headaches, I'm mostly just tired and go to bed really early. Today has been more challenging than I anticipated. I thought my work from home day would be easier because I'd have more time and flexibility to make my lunch, but lunch turned out terribly and I had to throw it away. I ended up eating a mish mosh of IP pudding, red pepper sticks and some ground turkey...bleh. Hopefully dinner will be better.

I did do a sneak peek on my scale at home and saw I'm already down 7 pounds, so that's awesome. I know I shouldn't make a habit of peeking, but I was curious. Official weigh in isn't until Tuesday.

Your lucky pishposh... I have had horrible headakes I am in my second week and still get awful headakes.. I weigh my self every morning and post it in myfitnesspal log... if the scale says up or down I write it down just for my own information... it helps keep me on program to be truthful with my self to write my weight BF% and all the food I consume down Just my way of staying honest with the diet

They go on sale periodically and when combined with the 10% lifetime membership and free shipping, they cost about a third of the IP ones. I add an espresso shot to the chocolate one and heat it up to make a mocha for breakfast most days. The other days I add the espresso to the vanilla one over ice and have an iced coffee.

In case you don't know, there is a thread devoted to alternative products with opinions from various people if you are looking for more items to substitute.

Default Headaches

I felt nauseous and headachy that first week. I almost quit but had just invested chunk of cash.
For me, I wasn't getting enough salt (SALT) and I was taking my supplements on an empty stomach.

I know my coach had told me how to do it right but there's so much info to take in at that first session.

The unofficial coaches in this thread will steer you straight. Hang in there, it gets better.

I also have a weigh in uniform. It was great not to have to shed layers of winter coats this morning when I got on the scale. I was rewarded with a 3.5 weight loss for sticking to plan so it was a great start to the day. Sometimes, I am a little bummed when I go to the salad bar and get my IP friendly meal, but I admit I feel very satisfied and happy once i eat it. Getting a real waistline again so it is making it worthwhile. I truly thought I would be overweight forever when I joined the day after Thanksgiving. This has made staying true to the program worth every second!

had my WI and am down 3lbs. My clinic has a backorder on the Chocolate Brownies!! I like to take one of them a week as a good chocolate treat. I took two of the Vanilla peanut bar instead - which is my go to favorite as well and the salt and vinegar RIDGES! I got soups and my puddings to make waffles - which have become a staple for me. SO GOOD. Had a salad from SUBWAY the yesterday IT WAS SO GOOD!

Mine doesn't but he doesn't weigh me in office. He has me weigh when I first wake up and takes that for my weight.

I want to continue mixing the powder with water, and something about the IP shakes allowed the shake to thicken up, and that's been hard to find. Plus, as I said, the taste of them just don't compare. Any tried and true recommendations?
I know I bought some different shakes and tried to bake with them. I thought I was saving a lot of money. Now I just have two huge containers of some whey protein or something that I will never use. They tasted terrible and did not "bake" the way the IP ones do. So, I buy alternatives for a lot of things, but the IP shakes for my baking needs. To drink, I buy readymade shakes from Costco (Premier Protein ones)
