Smile April 2015 Starters (and Restarters!)

Hi All,

I just started the Ideal Protein Diet. My first day was yesterday. I have over 100 lbs to lose! Thought that this would be a great thread for all April Starters & Restarters!

Hello! I'm a restarter as of April 6th! Good luck you. This program really works when followed. I had a really bad headache on days 3 & 4 but it went away. Thank goodness. Also, on day 5 I was craving everything and almost gave in. Now that I'm on day 7, I'm feeling great and sleeping great. This first week may be tough but it's worth it.

Welcome to IP 3FC-style, MrsMaw and livinthelife.

It's great to have people band together in their own starting month, but do pop in to the Daily Chat threads if you want to ask questions and socialise with everyone - veteran and newbie alike.

Hi everyone! I first did Ideal Protein in August 2012. I had AMAZING results! Lost 82 pounds in 6 months!!! Then another 4 months lost another 44 pounds. The program works but I didn't phase off properly. I have gained ALL my weight back plus 20 pounds! :-( I started IP again last Tuesday (4/7/15) and this time I'm going to phase off right! Hooray for us!!!!!

Hello All, I am a re starter. Just like Megan I started IP in 2012. I lost a total of 80 lbs. in about 7 months. I wanted to lose 10 more but, I started cheating and never phased off properly. Over the last two years I have gained back 45 lbs and I am not very pleased with myself. I felt good for the first time in a long time. BUT, I am back and will do it again. This time I will phase off properly.

Hi All! Congrats to everyone that made the decision to start or restart this month!

I lost a total of 45 lbs with Medifast but I did not phase off. I just lost motivation due to the lack of variety in the food and flavors. I ended up gaining back everything I lost plus more.

Really excited about Ideal Protein though! Today is my 4th day on the program and I feel great! The ready-made chocolate drink is awesome!

What is your favorite IP food?

Hey everyone! I've rebooted countless times, and I'm back for another! I reached my goal weight in March 2013 and didn't follow maintenance properly. I have had many successful weeks, but cannot stick to the plan on the weekend. This last weekend I finally made it through though, so hoping this is finally my time!
I've decided not to weigh myself at home, at least not yet. It becomes too distracting for me and can either make or break my day. Even at my coach's clinic I stand backwards on the scale so I don't look at the number (my scale has always read lower than her scale so I prefer to focus on that!). I would love to get to 120, but for now I'd be happy just to get back to 130. I know it's probably only about 10 or 12 pounds but man those are some pesky pounds!

Make sure you eat all your allowed food, and extra freebie veggies if you feel hungry. Get all your salt in and supplements - they are VERY IMPORTANT to be healthy on this diet. You'll feel better in a few days! Hang on!

Yay! So happy there's an April thread I just restarted yesterday. I did IP a while back and lost 20lbs in a month. I didn't phase off correctly, went back to my old habits and gained it all back plus some. So happy to be back on IP because I know how fast I can lose the weight! I will be going on vacation mid-June and hoping to lose about 30lbs by then.. We'll see how it goes
I will not be staying on plan during vacay since we're going to Hawaii for our honeymoon (after 9 years of marriage lol). But I will be right back to phase one as soon as I get back. I am debating whether I will do a mini phase off before my trip.. I just don't want to sacrifice any time I could be losing weight.

So happy to be on this weight loss journey with you all! It really works if you stay OP!

I'm on my first day. Doing ok, but a little sick to my stomach. I think it may have to do with the multi-vitamin. Those have made me nauseous, historically. May have to switch to a more substantial breakfast with the pill. Just did the cappuccino drink this morning.

I'm pretty excited about dinner tonight. Going to use this diet as an excuse to eat lots of scallops and other seafood.
