Hi Jo,

I remember my anticipation of my first consultation. At times I couldn't wait and then I would get nervous because I wasn't sure. I'm so glad I finally got started and am on the program. The Ideal Protein threads are a wealth of information....great place to hang out. I subscribe to the 100% philosophy so I plan to hang out there a lot, but will read all the other informative threads.

Amazing what a small weight loss can do for your body, isn't it?

My coach also said that I can add either an extra packet or a hardboiled egg after a light workout if I need it. I haven't needed it, but good to have the option.

Hurrah for looser clothes! Keep it up!

Thanks Mainemum - you too!

Sounds like a tough workday with all the off program salads around. I find it funny what people will classify as a salad.....good job staying the course.

I haven't had any emotional days yet but have had two days of feeling very, very, tired. Just went to bed early and tried to get some extra sleep. I feel great today!

I love your description of Leelenau peninsula!
Are you in Leland?
My parents live across the bay, just north of elk rapids, on GTB. I'm there the whole month of July (headed up in 67 days)
My mom did IP too. Her clinic was in ER.

I have learned that some people have a loose interpretation of the word salad. I organize lots of potlucks, and I am now very specific with my questions. "What are you bringing?" has become "what are the ingredients of the dish that you're bringing?" I learned this the hard way - I had one woman bring a green jello/pistachio pudding dish when I asked her to make a "green salad". Another person told me that she was bringing a fruit salad, and her dish contained only diced apples, Cool Whip, and diced Snickers bars!

I'm glad you found something that you could eat. You're smart to be planning ahead for next time!

Default I started 4/21

I am a 1st timer on the Ideal Protein diet. I am following the diet exactly including vitamins and water. My 1st week is ok so far. I've had a couple hard days. Today I have a cramp in my stomach which is very annoying!
How are you doing?

Hi, I started IP on Thursday, April 24th. I was a little discouraged at how heavy I was for the weigh in, as I had been avoiding a scale... but I know I needed that reality check and so far so good these first few days. I'm not weighing myself at home, which has took away a lot of stress normally take on when wanting to lose weight. Anyway. I am glad to see a thread with people who started around the same time. I hope we can check in with eachother in the future...

Congrats on your loss - that's super!

You have to be a member 20 days and have 20 posts before you get a ticker or be able to PM people.

You haven't posted enough yet. Look on the first page of daily chat and it explains it all.

DH is a little discouraged. He has only lost 3 pounds and WI day is Monday. I'm wondering if he is using too much mio, or if he really needs 5 packets being over 250 or since we had some fat free ham last night that he is retaining water. I hope something changes in two days or it will. E hard to keep him OP. I've asked that he commits for three weeks.

That's how I felt when I had my first weigh in. I've now had two and looking forward to seeing what my third is going to be! I've worked hard and just like the scale showing it.

It really could be a combo of all of those things.

Is he also drinking all his water, eating all four cups of vegetables and 8 oz meat (both measured raw) and adding his oils?

Of course you can't watch him all the time, so hopefully he is staying the course!

I don't know how much over 250 he is but I am 230 (well not anymore and only use 3 packets) The salt in the ham could be a factor too. And yes, some people react to the mio. Is he drinking enough water?
I hope he sticks with it, but the important thing is that YOU stick with it. Your healthier eating is going to rub off on him anyway so he will get healthier if he eats lean meat and veggies with you. He'll also see that it DOES work through your success. We're each our own keeper. If he wants to succeed and lose weight, he will. If you have to do it all for him, he won't keep the weight off.
Let's hope for good numbers to keep him motivated but if the scale doesn't do it, I know YOU will be a good motivator for him. He just doesn't know it yet!
