evemomma = my figure type must be similar to yours. I have lost on the bottom but the top has just melted away. My only solution is thrift store shopping. I drop off my old tops at the donation going in and come out with a bag of newer ones on the way out.

New support garments come in handy too as losing up top can cause some sad sagging. First time since I was a young teen that I am wearing padded and underwire.....

Good Morning!! I had my 6th WI yesterday and in 6 weeks I have lost 20lbs and 19 inches. My pants are "sagging" (I get on my son all the time for this). I am amazed and so motivated to continue on this journey! Congrats to everyone on their losses this week. Have a great OP weekend!!

I forgot how pear I really am since belly/breast/back fat was the last to pile on (and the first to go!). I am going to drop off a bunch of too big blouses to Goodwill today. Tee shirts work fine still...but need a few professional ones during transition. Trying to hold off on bras. I had just discovered the most AMAZING underwire bras (Warners "This is mot a bra" Bras )where the underwire is wrapped with padding so they don't dig. I bought 4...and now they're too big around. I thought of figuring how to shorten the band. But still soooooo happy to have this problem than having everything ooooooo small (last year of my life).

Even if someone else has tried it & liked it, doesn't mean you will, however!

I say holding off on bras is a mistake
We want the girls "up" and proud. Besides, bras too big don't give proper support.
Even if you just buy 2 to get you thru til next size.
2 things I don't skimp on: good shoes & well-fitting bra

I'm officially in fat-burning mode! I already feel lighter but the scale hasn't budged yet (I'm on day 4). I'm sure it will soon though!

On a less positive note, the headache!!! I've felt fine every day so far but woke up in the middle of the night burning hot and with a headache. Managed to fall back asleep but the headache has persisted this morning, even after taking some advil. It isn't terrible, more like a slight hangover. I've been good on my salt and water intake - anything else I should try or do I just need to tough it out?
The headache can be solved super easily.
More salt. Just increase the amount you use at first. You can literally lick it off your hand with a water chaser. Headache usually clears up in less than 30 minutes.

Haha...after nursing two kids...they certainly need some help! I have two that are my correct size (from after my son but before my daughter)...just wish the Warner ones I could make work. Wish bras weren't so pricey

I know that in some sense, the official formula for the BMI is arbitrary and not always accurate, but it is still a gauge and a way to set goals and milestones.

Next BMI goal is to move into the "normal" category but that will take another 39 pounds. I have a few other goals I can make before then. Next is -100 pounds while on IP (I started low carbs on my own before IP and hit -112 today).

Sun is shining, good day!
Hooray for you! Funny how we can be so happy to be "overweight" isn't it?

I found some clips with a small chain between them at Target that I used to pull in my blouses at the back so they didn't look so big. I am totally forgetting what they are called but it looked like they were designed for the blouse and gave me a couple of more weeks wear out of them.

I have a question. I am on medication for Blood pressure and it is controlled. Is it ok to still have the salt as needed? I have not seen any issue. I am praying with the weight loss I will soon be able to throw those pills in the trash forever!

Thank you for this reminder! It's always the battle of short term pleasure/long term pain versus staying focused.

I think I'm taking a bit longer than others to get into ketosis. I was thinking of working out a bit later (just on the elliptical) to hopefully help deplete my glycogen stores a bit faster. Happy weekend everyone!

TJ Maxx has some great deals on bras!!! I regularly find $30-$50 bras for $8 to $10...

Thanks! Between the water I was downing before I saw your suggestion, and the extra salt after, it's all cleared up. I think I may need to add a little salt to my breakfast in the future!

Big day here in Anniepoo-land. My husband and I are taking our four young children across the country to have a beach vacation in North Carolina. Airplanes, hotels, and a beach house for 10 days. AND NO SCALE. (And the stress--and joy--of traveling with four kids!) Haha. You'll be happy to know that I have an entire suitcase full of IP/IP alt stuff. While my kids are snarfing down the free waffles at breakfast, I'll be happily slurping away at my IP mango drink.

It might sound hard, but I'm actually really excited. Because I KNOW I can do this and stay totally OP. And if I can be OP for this, I can be OP for anything.

IT IS SO EXCITING. I CAN DO HARD THINGS! I CAN BE HAPPY WITHOUT WAFFLES!

So, farewell, my IPeeps. Your encouragement has kept me solid for the last month and I can't wait to report to you on the flip side. xoxoxox

My daughter-in-law called us at 12:30am last night, she is 9 weeks pregnant and woke up in pain and drove her self to the hospital (25 miles away) and didn't even wake up my son to tell him. He wasn't answering the phone so she asked us to drive over and tell him to go to the hospital (etopic pregnancy). We drove him up there and took our 3 year old grandbaby back home with us. My hubby is home with her today. They did surgery and removed the baby and part of her tube. If you are a praying person, please say a prayer for her. My daughter is also pregnant,they were due 5 days apart, so it is going to be even more difficult for my daughter-in-law having that constant reminder. Sad.
Just needed to share that with someone.

Today is my WI, but my coach is out of town. So I have to wait until next Friday. My home scale doesn't match their scale so I really have no idea how much I lost. I guess that's not a bad thing. I'll be surprised next Friday.
