Welcome! I've not hated IP so far, kind of enjoy it, truth be told. I had a great weightloss week one, so am optimistic! Whether starting again or for the first time, stick around here and we'll do it together.

I'm worried about my weigh-in tomorrow. I lost 10 the first week, but seem to be bouncing around 0-2 this week. I don't want it to be ZERO! I am 100% OP, except for a couple of times that I just CAN'T eat. Sometimes the meat is just too much. I should just stick with lean ham - I can always manage to eat that.

When I feel a desire to eat and it isn t time I ll have a big glass of cold water or an herbal tea. We are all doing great keep up the good work!!!

Sounds like you are having a great week!

I've been doing really good lately but for some reason today I'm super hungry a lot earlier than normal. I'm on Day #15. I have my WI later today, but according to my scale at home I'm down 10 lbs.
Hungry as anything though!!! Should I just eat lunch early?

I have been going on IP during the week, only to go off on the weekends and gain back what I've lost! I have made up my mind that I am doing it this time and not going off! I started this morning with some IP oatmeal and I feel great. Going to get some veggies and salad during my lunch hour, and planning Big Mac Salad for dinner. My daughter loves it also. Going to use this forum to post and draw strength. It could make the difference! Thanks to all who offer support!!

Default Day 5 and in the hospital

Yesterday at work i started to feel the worst back pain heart burn and pains in my stomach.. i went to the ER after work it was that bad. So I have a abscess infection in my small intestine that luckily they wont have to do surgery which on sicker less healthy people they would. So they will be pumping me with antibiotics to treat it... They are going to keep me a couple days to treat and monitor. :/ no food or water everything will be though IV blahhhh... Luckily they do not connect it to my new ideal protein diet. Down side is I may miss my 1st weigh in on Saturday . On my scale at home yesterday I was down 4 so at least I WAS on the right path..

I'm restarting too and it is going well. Since we know this plan works, we will have success again!

Hope everyone has a great weekend. My challenge for the weekend is going to a baseball game today and tomorrow. Not so much the food at the ballpark but having a cold beer. Oh well, I'll just have lots of ice water. Luckily we can take food and drinks with us, so I can bring lots of water, IP product and zucchini chips for a meal while there. I can do this! Go Rangers (even though they are playing terrible right now).
