Default 32 weeks && -96lbs

So Im on week 33 of this program and so far am down 96lbs, hoping to reach 100 within the next week... cross your fingers for me!!
How is everyone liking the program and for the members who are 'experienced' on this program how are you finding it being on protocol for so long? Experiences and suggestions to help me stick to it and keep me motivated would be appreciated!
Keep in mind I am still on phase 1 and has another 70lbs to lose or more hehe we will see when I get there.
Can't wait to hear from you all xo
The photo is a couple weeks old... hence the 90lbs =)

Wow you look great so far!! Keep it up, you're more than halfway there!

I just started 5 weeks ago so I'm still pretty new. I can't give you any special advice about maintenance after you reach your goal weight, but I know there are quite a few who have finished and kept it off. What helps me is to come on here every day for support and motivation. The expenses are a pretty helpful motivation too - my weightloss and my health have become an investment, and I don't plan on wasting all the time and money I have/will spend on it by gaining all the weight back again.

You DO look amazing! My suggestion? Take a break from IP---just do a usual low-carb deal. Of you do not want to go that extreme, go to Phase 2 or 3---hang out there for awhile til you feel less bored---then maybe go back to Phase 1. This is YOUR program---do it YOUR way. Life is too short not to enjoy it---figure out what will work for you and go for it!

Wow you look great, I can see you are juggling a lot of stuff at once and maybe that is why you are getting bored with IP. Though I can't say I won't be either after 7 months. I just think you are doing so well and that to keep in mind your goals and what is right for you. As I have only been on for 3 months I really can't say whether you should go off IP or not, as the thought of going off IP scares me right now as I don't want to gain the weight I lost back and I am not nearly finished yet. You basically have to do what is best for you. You say it is time comsuming, is there a way you can cut back on the time? I think it was Juice says that on Saturday he prepares 2 cup containers with food for the whole week, would that help you with your time issues? Just a few thoughts..

You look so awesome, quite an inspirations.

YOu rock lady! Do NOT get down....I know how you feel. I have knocked myself in and out of ketosis for the last 3 months and would have been done if I just stayed focused....so remember this is not a race to finish, but we really need to realize that we will have to eat different forever...not just to our goal weight.

Wow, talk about motivation....YOU ARE GETTTING MARRIED...FOCUS!!!

Wow!!! You are doing amazing! I'm going into my 10th week, and I think this is the best diet I have ever been on! I'd like to think that if I had to do this for 7 months that I would still feel the same way, but I don't know. When I do get down about having to be on a diet, I remind myself that it won't be this way forever, and I visualize the "new" me and all the things that I will be able to do and how proud of myself I will be.

Congrats on your success, and your upcoming marriage!
