This is my first post here although I have to admit I found the board about 2 months ago and have been lurking and reading as many posts as I can since then. I love this place and am finally ready to post!
I started IP back in May and lost 10 pounds in about 7 weeks and then phased off to go on a planned beach vacation. I came back from vacation and got right back on P1 and even lost 2 lbs while away on vacation. I have lost about 12 pounds in the last 9 weeks since vacation but MOST of it being in the 1st 6 weeks since vacation. In the last 3 weeks, I have maybe lost a total of 1 pound counting my weigh-in this past Monday of gaining .6 lb. I am 100% OP and I find it a little concerning that about 3 weeks ago, I started adding in some alternatives where before that, I was eating all IP. Could adding in the few alternatives cause my weight lose to stall? I am going to post an example day of what I eat...
B - EAS Carb Control AdvantEdge Vanilla Shake
L - Salad with mixed greens, 1.5 C Cauliflower and .5 C purple onion/tomato slices with WF 1000 Island Dressing and IP BBQ Chips
S - Quest Brownie Bar
D - 8oz. Chicken Breast, 2 C total of bamboo shoots, onion, green and red peppers, mushrooms
I am getting in all of my oil and salt with the salad for lunch and the veggies at dinner. I drink 4 Liters of water throughout the day. I have 2 cups of coffee with 2 splendas in each in the AM and 2 cups of decaf with 2 splendas in each the rest of the day. I do add MIO to most of the water I drink.
Do you see anything I need to change? I am starting to feel like I will never get to my goal...makes me think my body just doesn't want to "release" these last 10 lbs.
