My prayers are with you and your family. Hold your mom close!

Hi Everyone - My name is Beth and I just started IP on Wednesday. I am shocked by how great I feel - I have had more energy in the last two days than in the last two months! I am wondering how people mix up the food as to not get too bored. I have the chicken soup but am looking for ways to jazz it up a bit. I saw Jordanna's post about suggestions and that was really helpful. I am having family pictures taken on December 10th, so I am really motivated to drop some lbs before that. Any tips on working the plan would be great, looking forward to getting to know all of you.

I hate days like that, but I get them, too. Sometimes it is emotional hunger and sometimes it is real. If it is real I take lettuce, any kind, and roll it so that it looks like a mini tortillia (I prefer to use iceberg lettuce because it is crunchy). I put WF dressing in a condiment cup and I dip them in. It does not count as anything and the chewing and taste takes away the maddening desire to eat.

IP is a great way to lose weight. I have a great deal of energy also and am very pleased with the results of the diet or eating plan, as I like to call it. I have enjoyed this forum and feel like I have made many new friends. The support and interest of the ladies and gents on this forum is over whelming. Have a great IP day! Judy
