I just wish the skin could keep up! At least I know a good bodywork man in Tacoma... now I just have to wish that I didn't hear that another woman who needed it cost $30K!

I had the same thing happen to me. I was getting so discouraged after having weighed in and lost nothing last week. I upped my water intake and my attitude and 3lbs came flying off this week! 2 inches off of my thighs alone! It's amazing what a little more water and some positivity will do. I'm a believer! Hang in there- you CAN do this.

Good job! I too worry about my skin sagging. My face is already showing it. I know it is vain to think this way, but at the age of 51, years of sunbathing, I am really thinking of a face lift when I hit goal. I think of it as a gift to myself. I've got terrible wrinkles forming around my mouth on my checks. Yesterday, I ran into my older sister who I haven't seen in six months. She is 7 years older but looked younger than me. We have always looked so much a like, but now she looks younger than I do and that really bothers me! She has never had a weight problem and works out with a personal trainer 3 times a week and was never a sun worshiper.

I guess I'll start saving my money and thinking maybe someday I will not be afraid to smile because it shows my wrinkles.

NSV here: I have Type II diabetes, but I am very insulin resistant and was on tons of insulin before IP. I am only in the middle of week 2, and have cut my insulin by 90% AND am off one of my 3 blood pressure medications. Amazing!

Oh my gosh I am so glad you said that as I feel the same way!!!! My face has these new lines ugggg. My husband made a comment to me the other day about it and he never says anything but how good I look. I am worried too!!! My stomach too, it is ugly!! I layed on my side last night and it looked like a old shriveled up gourd or something. lol I have good skin, no stretch marks or anything so I hope it tightens up a bit. I am starting the savings account too!!

My in laws are visiting therefore I have been cooking like crazy. Then entire family comes here. I made two cakes yesterday, one of them my favorite and I didn't taste anything. It didn't bother me at all until I served it with ice cream but only for one min. I had that lust for that bite, I just turned it off. When they were eating the cake in the dining room I just kept busy cleaning up dishes and felt so good about myself and the wonderful energy I had.

I had a wonderful weigh in yesterday! Down 3.8 pounds, almost 2 percent body fat and 1.5 inches. I also hit 143 at home on my scale which made me get tears in my eyes. I never thought I could do this. IP scale a little higher of course at noon with clothes on. I have decided I think I want to go to 137 we will see. I am only .8 over on body fat and then I will be normal!!!! My son who is 27 said to me yesterday. Mom if someone would have said to you in the next 2 and a half months you are gonna lose 30 pounds would you have believed them? I said I would have said yeah right you are dreaming!!! So to all of you that have struggled with this your entire lives like me, it works!!! You have to stick with it, not cheat and watch your life transform!!!!

So one of the problems I've had is that I've hit the wall with Salad. I had tried eating it for the last 4 days and it literally made me gag. Well after reading on here yesterday I was very motivated. Went to the store last night and got Spinach only (and it was a Manager's special $1.50) and have been able to get my salad in! I do pretty good with the 4c veggies but knew I was needing the extra salad.

Just want to say thanks to everyone on here for being so supportive. So many of you have been where I am and it helps to know others have gotten past it.

Hope you all have a great day!

Ask your coach about the liquid Collegen, it tastes like raspberry and helps with keeping your skin nice, I have been taking it for a couple of weeks now.Hope this helps

Well after about 3 weeks of plateauing my body decided to play nice with me and let me lose a little more weight. I am also pleased to announce that I have just gone past my halfway goal! So 59lbs in just under 4 months isn't bad all. I had hoped to be closer to 80 by now. But this is still way better than the alternative.

Congrats to all the losers out there and keep it up!

These are some awesome scale and non scale victories! It really helps to keep me excited about I.P and motivated too!!

I'd like to share my scale success: after 8 weeks and 2 days, I have lost 50 lbs!!! I can't believe it!! I'm almost half way to goal!!!
