S/C/G: Weight loss goal 60 pounds


Thanks TORIDEROLLERCOASTER! ya I think part of the reason I had a big loss this week was because the house sale is finalize lol I was terrified something would go wrong and I would loose it!

That is amazing that you can avoid the temptation of cooking! I am a big baker but haven't even attempted baking anything for anyone since I started IP I'm too scared!

Phase 2 is really nothing to be afraid of it just changes your lunch to meat/egg instead of a packet. Takes a little more prep time but I lost more on it than at the end of phase 1. It is not no more difficult than phase 1.

I think the total amount of veggies for the day remains the same. Some people have reported losing more on phase 2 than one phase 1... You shouldn't get kicked out of ketosis in this stage...

I would be scared about Phase 3... but must admit that I am also dreaming of my first Phase 3 breakfast of yoghurt, fruit, and TOAST!

BTW, A huge CONGRATS! about not being on blood pressure medication. That is truly fantastic!

Yes, first day on phase 3 and it was great this morning, had 2 pieces of 18 grain toast and a yougart strwberry shake. Was really quite good and it was better than having a packet for breakfast. The fresh Strawberries in the shake was great, I have been craving fruit.
I have been struggling with the program for the last month. Not sure if I should phase off as I have some functions that are coming up and also not sure if I can justify the costs of the products anymore. After trying on a pair of spring pants that I haven't been able to wear for years, they fit! Noy only do they fit, they look fabulous! And....if I stay on the program, dedicated to my goal, they may be too big for me by summer!

Just wanted to throw my success out there for inspiration to anyone else that is struggling. It's hard to argue with the results that we are all seeing on this program!

Hope everyone has an amazing day!

yes a lot of morinings my mouth is dry to but after brushing my teeth it is fine.

If it were me I would be temped to stick it out, you don't have far to go and I was also getting dicouraged when I was almost to my goal but stuck it out and it paid off.

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced high LDL ( bad one ) cholesterol on the diet. MY coach says it was suppose to lower it. I went to get blood tests done to see how everything was working and now I have increased choleserol, hoping it will straighten out once into phase 4, if not then will need tablets. I have never had high cholesterol in my life, also may just be coincedence because have not had blood work done in while either.

nredgirl I read your lunch story, very funny.

I just about turned around and went home but I have to be at work... Hopefully nothing will happen and I will see two happy dogs when I get home, and I won't see peanutbutter eggs and tinfoil in the smiles of a certain dog.

Everyones stories are so great, it makes me happy to read how you all are doing every day. Couts71 is away so it was nice to see him online today. He is my own personal adviser in the office if I have any questions... I am happy so far with my weight loass and the program. I do have concerns with loose skin but am reading up about that. Looking forward to my half way point I am hoping to be at in a week or two. I look forward like everyone else to the different phases but am also scared as I am comfortable right now with my 3 packets and veggies. When I have to add another protein in on my own then I will have to start thinking again. Hopefully by that time I will have a better idea of what I want and proceed from there.

I have been asked by people when I will stop my diet and I basically told them when I feel right, as of right now I see way too much fat still on my body that I have to lose before then. But am now experience things like oh why is my hip sore, hmmm sleeping with less fat can be uncomfortable. Also I have been cold since starting IP my friend who is on another diet said she was cold fore 8 months but is finally normal again.... I was always hot before now I wear long sleeved shirts and hoodies to work.

Okay enough of my rambling I have to get back to work. Ontario Have a great vacation and keep up the good work.

I thought i was the only one that is freezing all the time. especially when i go to bed. i put my fuzzy pj's on and i wake up in the night frozen. its sooooo weird. is this normal?

Laura, I was battling this too! I fought the same 2 lbs for 3 weeks! Gah. Sooooo aggravating. And then dropped 5.6 lbs the next week. I understand still seeing your body as huge - some days I do too. I think that part of it is the fact that my clothes still fit the same way - you know, my jeans are still close fitting over the thighs, the waist is better even though the jeans are 8 sizes smaller! It's definitely more evident to me when I wear one of my old sweatshirts or something that is hanging off of me... I tried on my wedding dress again the other day - I can pull it on without even unzipping it and it just hangs on me like a sack. I have surpassed my DL weight by more than 25 lbs and when I hit goal, I'm going to go in and get a new one! The picture doesn't look like me at all...

Hi everyone I have been on ip since february. I believe that I am what is referred to as a "lurker" as I read but don't post. It's been slow and difficult. I have never once lost more than 2 lbs at a weigh in. It is you guys that keep me going. Your posts have made me laugh, cry, and mostly feel incredibly humbled. Many of you have overcome amazing obstacles and lost insane amounts of weight, what are my challenges compared to THAT. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart, and the hearts of my fellow "lurkers".
