Hi snowclover,

I started IP on Monday and weighed 203 lbs on Saturday for my start weight. I am 5'4" and can't imagine myself at 135! When I was in middle school I was 150 lbs. So I set my goal weight at 150 lbs. Not sure if that is going to work or be healthy for me but I figure, as I progress I will stop when I feel I look healthy and slender for my body type. Plus I have my roommate doing this with me and we both have promised each other that if the other starts looking skeletal we will have an intervention :-)

Good luck on IP and I look forward to sharing successes!

(I really fell like I should take my scale! lol)
Good luck at the reunion! Sounds like you've gotten everything packed and ready! I hope you have a ball!

I have never understood how doctors think they can look at a silly chart and tell you what you should weigh! I am very tall and a size 18 in clothes, but if I lose the 100 a doctor told me to, then I think I would be too thin. I am going to go off of the way I feel and if I am healthy. That is the advice I would give you. Get to YOUR happy weight.

Well I'm 5'8 and my Doc said a healthy weight range for that height is 130-150lbs...

For your height that number makes sense but I'm sure she/he is going by a standard weight chart and those do not take into consideration muscle mass...

ooooh okay! I keep doing the hah hah *check breath thing* and haven't noticed any bad breath yet, but a lot of the other indicators you've mentioned I've noticed! More energy, super thirsy, funny taste... I haven't sniffed my armpits yet today though...

As far as my Doctor "assigning" me to 135... I'll just stop when I'm happy and healthy. I have no idea where that will be. I've been overweight since childhood and obese since adolescence so who knows? The number on the scale doesn't really matter to me. I just want to feel healthy and confident, that's what matters!

Thanks for the response. I don't want to overdo it, but boiled crawfish is my favorite food ever. And I'm originally from Bunkie, LA. Good to see some other Cajuns on the board!

Hi All
WI#4 today and I'm down another 3.6 lbs! Yay!! Total of 22!! wahoo

I had a dream last night that my mom told me I was just dreaming and I actually hadn't been losing but gaining the weight and that I actually weight 414lbs. So strange. I woke up and was mad at my mom. hahaha.

NSV - I'm in an XL at Old Navy for their tops instead of an XXL!!

There's no WAY I'm letting our hard work go to waste without showing it off, ha ha! Have a great time and be sure to post photos for us to see
You will definitely have to go once you hit goal! I didn't want to go this year but changed my mind last minute after I dropped 20 lbs. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you about Khaki ball...we're hoping for the same. I'll post photos when I get back

Weigh 12 today and not much to report. Lost 0.2. Did lose inches so my body is still working it. Will be phasing off probably in 2-3 weeks no matter what my goal is!! I am pretty happy with how I look and the shopping is way better on the "other" side. I'd I lose more then it's a bonus. I feel like my body is settling in to where it wants to be.

For all the newbies I am a slow loser but still losing!! This program works if you can get through the first week or two. Trust the program and it WILL work. You are worth it!! If not for this forum I would have quit. It is so uplifting to know other people are going through the same ordeals.

My husband has lost over 50lbs and my daughter 15lbs. I am truly excited for our time at the beach this summer. I may not be a hard body but I am confident in this body now. I did this!!!

May all your weigh in be good ones!!!

Christine

The test will be :going on vacation next week and with Easter coming....I KNOW I can do it. Happy Wednesday to all. Have a great one!!!
I know how you feel. It took 20 lbs for me before anyone noticed and then it was just one person. It was more like 30-35 lbs and I only had 45 to lose. The people that see you everyday have the hardest time noticing! Keep going, you are doing great!
