Good morning everybody! Well if anybody missed out on my post last night, I had my WI #7 and lost another 5.6 lbs and 3 inches. I'm so happy and excited I just had to repost...lol. So a total of 30 lbs and 55.65 inches in 7 weeks. I love IP!!!

I'm gonna go to the grocery store today and see if I can find rhubarb and kale and try those recipes. They sound really good. Plus I have a bunch of spinach too I think I'll try that too. I have been trying a few other recipes, the turnip fries, cauliflower couscous and big mac in a bowl, so so good.

Congrats to all NSV's and SV's...those are great numbers and sizes. Way to go everybody, keep up the great work.

I had jello and kale chips for lunch yesterday and I kind of felt guilty about it because it was so delicious I felt like I was cheating lol.

I feel SO much better and each loss makes me more determined! But this constant weight loss is really why I think this protocol will be the last 'diet' and it will come off for good!

I think I'm going to go carry around my girlfriends 40 lbs 4 year old so I can really 'feel' it like never before.

I hope everyone has a great day!

Congrats on the loss, 40 lbs down in 2 months is amazing

This will be my third weigh in. I lost 5lbs last week but this is so discouraging.
Any advice??

Tina, right about the same time as you I had a similar week. I'd had AWESOME results, so I was used to seeing the scale make major changes. Something in my body triggered that day and I ended up losing 2.8 pounds at that weigh in, but every time I touched the scale before that I was actually UP for the week.

I'm not sure why our bodies do this, but try not to let it get you down--even if you don't lose pounds this week, THEY WILL COME OFF! Not only that, but you're losing inches almost as rapidly as you're losing pounds, so don't discount that.

Look for other things to celebrate--like wearing an old outfit you once loved or noticing thinner parts of your body. Also, remember to think about your health, too--the way you feel, the way your body is reacting to the foods you're consuming. Those things should help perk you up a little bit. As much as this is a diet, it's also a plan that rapidly increases your muscle mass, improves your health beyond what anything else would do, and helps you lose brain fog (at least it did for me).

Keep your chin up--pounds are certainly not the only important factor in this program!!

My favorite is the peach mango MiO! I try not to have it very often, though, because on weeks that I have MiO I tend not to lose as much because I add 3 squirts and a packet of splenda to each water bottle--a little more than recommended, but I'm not normally a fan of flavored water.

I don't particularly care for the other flavors.

I like the strawberry watermelon!!!! Its the only one I've tried and i love it! I also tried Walden Farms Sesame Ginger dressing and that was pretty good. I like a creamier dressing on my salad though so I am in search of the WF Ranch or Thousand Island I hope they are good!

My last weeks weigh in was not that great, but not terrible. I did still lose 1.6 pounds. But everyday since I have watched my scale at home go down. I am super excited for my weigh in on Monday. If the weekend goes as well as this week I will be down 5 or more pounds!

Hey all. Congrats to all who have had successes this week. To those who are struggling, hang in there and keep posting

I am definitely going to get out and buy some kale tonight. All this talk of kale chips is fascinating. I need to shake things up. I'm still pretty happy with my salads, veggies, and chicken, but I think my taste buds need a surprise.

Have a fabulous day!

I will try it with spinach also but I am excited that I added another veggie to my very small basket of likes when it comes to veggies!! Tonight I am giving the turnip fries... Good luck everyone for another good day with IP!!!

Today is my first day on the IP diet, and I have to say, I'm really excited. I feel like this is a diet that I can manage to do and not cheat, and also will be great to get my blood sugar numbers under control as I am a Type 1 diabetic. This weight has been creeping up on me for the last 4 years and it's time to ditch it! SOOO, we'll see, fingers crossed! Eating the cream of chicken soup for lunch, hopefully it's good!
