Cool Bonjour

Hi

I am Anne, 27 , from Quebec. Its good to find team-mates for the run

I started IP about 8 weeks ago. Doing fine , i know now what I like , and what product I hate (leek soup !!). I decided to do IP because of the reputation and I am really happy with the results.
I love going out so I must admit I strugglw with the NO alcool clause. But I think its worth it.
I play volley ball 3 times a weeks and since a fiew weeks i jump more and am faster so that is all good for me
My first language is french so I am sorry for the poor english and the mistakes.
I have no kids ,I live alone with Turtle (my cat), my boyfriend is Australian and I just cant wait to see him this x-mas !!

Way to go everyone. the quick rewards on this diet keep me motivated. I don't have dramatic loss as some of you, but am pleased with 6 pounds in my first two weeks.
Valkrie, I work part-time for a local hospital doing alot of community based things, corporate health screenings, health related talks, child passenger saftey, and I teach CPR and Newborn care classes. Lots of different things. Keeps me busy though.
Love reading all the posts, They are also motivating.
I also hate the Leek soup, and the chicken soup.
Thanks all. Lynn

You and me both! I was this way before IP though...I guess being allergic to almost everything out there kinda makes you just want something else to sustain you!

Maybe some new spices or a new dressing??

Good to hear from you!
Awesome! Just remember that it is mostly water the first week. I would say 3-4 lbs a week is normal after first week and from what I am being told, so just don't be disappointed when it isn't that much week 2. My 2nd week is this Friday. :-)

Abdoula- congratulations on the big loss. That's fantastic!!!

DebS-I'm very sorry for your loss. You sound like you have done really well on the IP plan. I just started exercising a few weeks ago. It's much easier when you don't have as much weight to carry around!

Annmawy-Welcome to our group. I have to agree that the leek soup is NOT great!

In my community it is the local spa who is carrying the IP products. They are not doctors or health practioners. They told me that i can have unlimited broth on the IP plan. Has anyone else heard that? because i find it easier for suppers to eat all the vegetables as a soup - just changes things up a bit... any other recipe ideas would be great!

I am also having a hard time knowing what I can and can't have on this plan. I was given a sheet telling me what I can have for Phase I but I've heard you all mention some things that are not on my list. (Makes me wonder if the list was IP sanctioned or if my Rep just put it together.) Anyway, it seems there are still a lot of questions floating around in my head....

I hadn't heard that about the chicken broth but would like to know.

Didn't know we could use sugar-free syrups either.

Unlimited puddings? Does that mean when we get hungry we can have an extra packet?

Lastly, I see some of you have mentioned puffs and bars and such....I haven't even been made aware of those I only know soups, yogurt and puddings.

Well I had my weigh in today. I was down 1.5 lbs. Since it's TOM this week I guess that's probably OK.

Gink- the bars and puffs are available but they are restricted to one per day. They are higher in carbs.

I haven't heard about the broth. I've only heard that you can have unlimited lettuce. I know that there is some outdated info about the diet out there. When I first started I was told 1/2 tsp. salt and you went to phase 2 when you reached 80%. Now I've been told it's 1 tsp. salt and you go to phase 2 when you reach 90%. I wish they had a more consistent way of getting the new info out to everybody.

Does anyone use other meal replacements like the Atkins bars or shakes. They look similar are much cheaper. I know IP will say they have the "best" protien, but what is the real difference?

good work alwe its better to lose then not to lose .

I have the same questions as the way they give the program.
I have 3 proteins to take per day ( 2 meals and one snack ) i have illimited salade and most veggie ( except avocado-carrots snowpeas) and i have a '' normal'' meal to take each day ( 150-200g of meat ) and 2 cups of veggies.

I have almost over 30 kinds of Ideal Proteoin product at my Gym so I never have the same thins each day !

My personnal favorites are the chocolat drinks that I mix with my coffee , the Jello and the poudding and of course de Puffs.
I also like the spagetti and the omlettes that i throw all my veggies in !!

I hole the day when well for u all.
I just arrived from Volleyball and cooling down

Wow..I love reading this board each day. I love hearing about everyone's successes (and they are all successes). Ihad a bad day today. Again, I didn't cheat, but didn't get in all the veggies and water (GoddessTT - I made the tea then forgot it in the microwave).

I am really nervous because I am leaving in the a.m. to go with a friend of mine for the weekend. We will be staying at her son's house and I feel I cannot "tell" them what I can eat. I loaded a bag with IP, along with WF salad dressings, etc., but since we will be at a convention all day Saturday and Sunday, I am worried.

DebS, I am so sorry about your husband. Mine also died of a heart attack in Iraq 1-1/2 years ago. I feel like I have been "frozen" - let my weight and my health go this whole time...and am trying to get healthy again for my son and his family. I still feel kinda empty inside and it is hard for me to stay motivated with anything...but I am trying. Good for you for not waiting as long as me.....

Everyone have a great weekend......

Green cabbage beware........ I just weighed in on my 12 week and I am down 43 lbs!!!! Although my weight loss has been fantastic, I recently was told that I have been cheating by eating my green cabbage (1 head of cabbage a wk about.) Make sure you are only eating RED Cabbage. This is my first week off of cabbage and my weight drop was substantially higher! Anyway, glad to see that people are finally finding out about this program.... when I first started I couldn't find anyone that has done it online.
