Good morning,
I hope to get back on plan today. I am going to take it one day at a time. It has been rough over the last couple of months. As most of you know, we lost my dad on Sunday. His funeral was yesterday. I know that I need to take care of myself and that he would be very proud of what I have accomplished so far. I hope to be there for my family, especially my mom. We are a strong and close family. I have been blessed in many ways. Thank you all for your support and encouragement through this time.
Tina Lou

The antibiotic I'm taking,has giving me very weird dreams.. I woke up with a scare, I dreamt my hair was all chopped up and standing out like a porcipine- really short on top and chin length bob the rest- ugh! it looked awful! And to make it worse I was 400 pounds-yup I saw myself in my nightmare like that! And because I am vertically challenged, I coud hardly move at that weight..wow.. frightening.....

S/C/G: 191/155/155 -- revised to /145

Height: 5'6"

Default

Today I stepped on my home scale to find that I have reached my initial goal of 155!!!!!!! My scale weighs 2 pounds heavier than the scale at the clinic, so I am hopeful that tomorrow's WI will be a good one.

However, now that I'm "here," I feel like I could stand to lose another 10 pounds -- so I won't be on Phase 2 for awhile. I'm hoping this last ten goes quicker than the ten pounds before.

I'm wondering if it's common to revise your goal downward? When I picked 155, I wasn't really sure I'd ever get there. I'd be extremely happy to hit 145 before the end of the year.

It was fun haven't done that in a long time! We didn't kick *** but we did do pretty good! I was a little rusty... the first ball I threw I almost face planted! LOL less then graceful but I got better by the second game! All and all lots of fun!

Great Job!!! This diet is amazing. I feel the same about my goal. I set an initial goal that I hope to get to but I would really like to lose 20 additional pounds.

Good luck, your doing great!

Yesterday was my forth weigh in and I'm down another 3 lbs...
I was so excited...that is 25lbs total....I feel with this life change
I can really make this happen..I have hope for the future...the most
important thing..is at my weight of 215 they still have me as obese..
but my BMI now is not a severe health risk its moderate...
I was so happy about that..I'm going down....

has anyone done the alternate phase 1? does it work as well as the original phase 1. do you still have ip packets or do you substitute everything? I have ordered a lot from Nashua foods, but the cost is still killing me as both myself and my husband are following the diet. I've thought of going on alternative low carb diets...but i'm kind of scared to take the plunge as well as i'm not sure what is the best diet.....any thoughts from anyone?

I too have been thinking about my goal that I set when I started IP. I set it at 135 and thought to myself, that is too low for me. Now I'm thinking 142 instead of the 135 but who knows. As I lose the weight I realize my body has changed since high school. A lot! My clinic's charts say my ideal weight is 132.

I'm going to rethink my weight when I achieve the 145 pound mark and see h ow I feel then. I hope to be in the 140's before the first of the year and then might just go for that extra 10 pounds to lose. For now I have set my mini goal of 145 and will take it from there. Maybe with spring coming on then I will go for it.

Started thinking about needing a swimming suit for a winter get away. I will be able to look at different styles other than the tent look! YEAH!
