Hi Celia - I started on Monday the 8th. You can find lots of starters in the daily thread and the May starters thread.

Welcome to 3FC, Celia!!

If you will go to the Winter/Spring 2015 thread, you will find June starters, along with those who began in Jan, Feb, March, April and May -- these are the newest IPeeps, who have most recently experienced the early days but have also settled into a rhythm with the program. You will find excellent support there, as well as peers who are just starting out like you are.

In addition, be sure to check out the IP Community Weekday Chat and the IP Community Weekend Chat - new ones are started each week, and the entire community tends to use it as a central place to post questions and get answers.

You have come to a great place for tips, tricks and overall warm support as you make your way through your weight loss journey on Ideal Protein!!!

Started one week ago tomorrow! I am starving, but hanging in there. The food packages don't really taste all that great to me, except of course for the restricted ones!
I miss ketchup!

I started a week ago on Tuesday, and I'm down 5 pounds already! The first couple of days were boring, as far as food goes, but thanks to Pinterest, I'm loving the foods! Absolute best thing: vanilla drink mixed with a cup of black coffee...drink over ice or blend with ice.

I know you didn't ask for recipes, I'm just excited to share lol.

Good luck on your first week!

Default Started today - Feeling SO hopeful!

I just found out about IP and I am SO excited! I really didn't think there was any way I could lose weight... I will be 50 in August but i'm not ready to "Feel" old and fat!

I was looking at clinics but have decided to try the protocol on my own.
I did the HCG diet a few years ago and lost 55 lbs. The weight has crept back on and i am disgusted with myself.

Having said that...I am so ENCOURAGED by the results of the members in this group. So looking forward to this journey.

Anyone have any advice on the benefits of using a clinic vs going it on my own?

Thanks and so excited to have found this website!!

Today was my first weigh in - I lost 3 lbs.
We looked over my food plan. That was when I found out that all the bars are restricted and we can only have one a day. I have been having one of the wafer bars early in the day and one of the other chewy bars at night with my coffee.
I lost 50 lbs. with IP in 2012 and ate 2 bars every day - I had no idea!
Today, when the lady at the clinic, told me that I could only have 1 a day, I felt like a little kid. I wanted to burst into tears. I LOVE my 2 bar days!
I felt hopeless, like I wanted to quit, cause their ain't no way I can stick to this plan if I can't have my 2 bars! Talk about spoiled or what??? I laugh just thinking about how I felt. I told her I will try a pudding at night but If I need a bar, I'm having a bar. I just tried the pudding....AWESOME.....YUMYUM....she gave the great suggestion of having a few IP chocolate balls if I need some crunch.
It turned out to be a good day after all.

Heitina, I need something sweet twice a day too, so I have been having a sweet drink in the AM, and my bar or the apple cinnamon soy puffs or chocolate puffs in the evening after dinner. For the sweet drink, I blend the vanilla or cappuccino drink with a cup of coffee (pre-chilled). To save time, sometimes, I just drink the coffee/vanilla drink mixture over ice in the shaker. This is probably my favorite packet out of everything I've tried. Just throwing this out there
