Hello all! I did IP a year ago and lost 30lbs in a little over 3 months (160 to 130). LOVED IT! I didn't really follow the phase off plan for many reasons, including losing touch with my coach, busy time at work, lots of free food at work, etc. Either way, I gained about 20lbs back, although it did take me a year.
I see SO many restarters here, which makes the whole maintenance phase a little discouraging. But I want to do it right this time, and I'm just wondering, for all of those who regained, how did you phase off? Did you follow all the phases correctly, or just jump back in? Also, are there any maintainers out there who did it the right way and can preach that it works?
I have already lost 10lbs in my restart, and I'm doing great! I just want to make sure I keep it off this time.
