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

ENJOY your vacation!!! You got this!!

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.
Oh so sorry for your loss. I will be praying for you and your family.

Thank you everyone. I am a praying person. I believe that God is in control. Unfortunately my daughter-in-law is not a believer, which is going to make this even more difficult for her. I'm trusting God though!

I also take meds for HBP. Yes, you still need the salt. It is weird since the doctors are always saying don't add salt. However, since you are no longer eating processed foods you won't be getting enough salt with out adding it yourself.

Also, when I did this diet the first time I got to a point where my medicine was making me so tired it was terrible (by blood pressure was too low). I called my doctor and she halved the medicine and then it was fine. I would definitely talk to you doctor if you have this problem.

"I thought, "this diet is stupid", and I was very tempted to get up and eat a bagel."

This made me laugh! I started in February and after a few days, I asked my husband "is this some stupid crazy thing we're doing?". Well, 3 1/2 months later, over 40 pounds down for me and almost 60 for him, it might be stupid, but it works. ;-) Hang in there. The first week is hard and getting in the rhythm takes a little practice, but it's worth it. You'll enjoy seeing the results. Just try and step away from the bagels! :-)

Way to go Schenectady! That is an awesome accomplishment. I love that you keep setting new goals for yourself, so great for motivation. Keep up the great work.

Oh Kellyc -such sad news for your daughter-in-law and son. Thinking of them and your family during this sad time.

Happy Friday everyone!
Have officially lost 100lbs on IP and feel so grateful for such a great program and forum. I saw the discussion on bra's earlier, my coach measured my bust today and noticed that it had grown and asked if I bought a new bra, my response, "yes a padded one!" I have lost 2lbs today and the inches keep coming off waist, hips, and bust.

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!
Congratulations! I am with you in the "overweight" category and have never been happier! I'll meet you in "normal" soon enough!

No sausage, not really.
Only meats on the sheet.
