Starting May 1 and New
 
This place is amazing. ;)Been looking around and appreciate the info. First time going on IP so I am trying to learn all I can for preparation on my new journey. I cannot wait to learn new recipe ideas and tips.

Having serious health issues my cardiologist has recommended this plan.

My consultation is May 1st and first day on plan May 2nd:carrot:

I feel really motivated but yet so scared that it will be too difficult. :o

Thanks for the support!

Welcome and congrats on making a decision to improve your health!

I was worried that I couldn't do IP but, guess what? I could! Once I got going and got used to eating this way it was really simple. Hard sometimes but totally worth it to stay 100% on plan.

Glad you found us, this is the most supportive group of people you could hope for - I couldn't have done it without everyone here.

Yes Welcome... great bunch here on 3FC's!! I found the first few days a little hard but once I got in the groove of things and planned well ahead for special events, busy days and restaurants... it was all good!

When I first started some of the best advice I read on here was:

-keep packets EVERYWHERE... that means in your purse, car, hubby's car, desk at work.. well... you get the picture! this has saved me more than once!

-If you are going out, look up the menu online before you go and decide what you will order. Some people even call the restaurant ahead to see if they will accomodate their special requests... I usually just ordered a steak cooked with no oils and asked them to smother it in mushrooms only... nothing else.

-when I was hungry or craving, dill pickles saved me over and over... I even go to a certain grocery store that carries the biggest pickles I can find!!

Most importantly... make sure to come here for encouragement and advice.. I learned so many things just reading all the threads.. K enough said.. I wish you all the best on your new journey!!

Welcome! :hug:

I will be honest... for the first few days, I wasn't sure if I would be able to stick with this program, but as the days went by and the weight came off, I realized that it is actually one of the easiest plans to follow because there is really no thinking involved ;) It's all spelled out for you... what foods to eat as well as the portions of each food, so if you follow the IP rules, it WILL work for you! :)

This forum is great for support & motivation, so don't be afraid to share your thoughts and ask questions :)

Good luck on your IP journey! :dance:

Thank you, Ruth, Hiker and KarKrazy,:wave::wave: I appreciate the kind welcome and great tips. I cannot wait to get going. I love that the IP program is all or nothing....no room for cheating and just what I need. Looking forward to making some new friends and finding others who will take the program to heart.:hug:

:carrot:I tried calling my IP clinic today to see if they had any cancellations. Can hardly wait for my consultation on Thursday.

Today is the big day....my first day on IP. Had an amazing consultation with my coach yesterday. I feel better already!
