I would highly recommend joining the daily chat and (after you've begun) the 100% thread. These threads are where the community is built and where you'll find people with experience to answer your questions.

Hi Everyone,
Glad to meet other newbies! I started on 8/6. I lost 8 lbs. my first week, but my next weigh-in is Monday, and I know that I am losing less. So far I've done well; 100% IP with no cheating.

Looking forward to hearing all your success stories!

Lose2Win2014 - Nice to meet you too! Congratulations on losing 8 lbs. WOW, you did SUPER GREAT on your first WI, and GRATS on staying 100% OP, I've learned that those who stay 100% no cheating meet their goals faster. Usually the most loss is during the first week. Lets try to do it right, no cheating, one day at a time! WE CAN DO THIS!!!

to the board everyone!

Hello Iron Woman and thenewme42!

Hello again Ariel13!

Way to go! Lose2Win2014, great first week loss!

Hi, sydster2017 Welcome! If you have any questions or just need anyone to talk to please feel free to pm me!

I have done IP in the past and loved it but moving and life got in the way. So I restarted on 8/7 with my boyfriend. I'm down 6 lbs and he's down 10 lbs. (darn guys lose weight so much faster! lol). The first time I did IP I lost 10 lbs my first week, so I was bummed to not lose as much but a loss is still a loss. It's also my TOM so I'm hoping that played into and I'll do better next week!

Welcome sydster! Good luck tomorrow! I am also new, just finishing my 3rd day, and honestly, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be (I thought I would be miserable the first 3 days) Just make sure to drink lots of water, someone here suggested to drink half of what you weight (so if you weight 200lbs you'll drink 100oz of water daily) Also, don't forget your supplements and the salt and oil, and take advantage of the extra IP food that's allowed for the first week, and eat as much unlimited veggies as you can, to make yourself feel full...and if you get hungry, drink cold water and remind yourself why you started this diet. You can always come here to share your day with us, this forum has been very helpful, is like a big family here, so I hope to see you around!

Great job everyone!
Ariel13 I am 100% OP and agree that success will come faster for those that have stayed OP. I am hoping all the newbies here make the commitment to yourself to give this plan 100%. Are you with me?

With you 100%, Iron Woman! Saw this Tommy Lasorda quote today, and I thought it was appropriate:

"The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a man's (or woman's ) determination."

Have a great 100% day, August friends!

You can do this sydster! Just take it one IP meal at a time, try to stay busy these first few days (I cleaned my house and organized my office area haha), and take a nap if you really are feeling tired. Your body needs to readjust so sometimes in the beginning we can feel crappy. It is normal and will get better if you power through and stay OP (on plan).

YES, Iron Woman, I'm with you 100% I'm glad because I don't feel alone, this time I feel I can come and share my journey with wonderful people who understand exactly what I'm going through. Have an excellent Saturday!

Thank you for sharing that beautiful quote with us Lose2Win ! We need all the motivation we can get! (I'm writing down quotes and placing them on my fridge) I guess these are supposed to be the hardest days, right? Or are these the easiest ones? because so far it hasn't been really bad or hard.

nat, Lose2Win, Iron Woman, WhoDat, sydster, thenewme 100% OP Today!

This thread makes me happy! I just started 8/13 too, and today was my first weekend day on program. I'm disciplined at work, but weekends at home are my downfall. So, I took my kids to the park and did as much housework that I could tolerate. Lol! Anything to keep busy! I'm still getting used to eating the packets, and trying to find the ones I like best. But, I'm very excited to start this journey and I'm so thankful for groups like this that are so helpful and supportive!
