Plus she said Dr Tran is against any kind of intense workout while on the program which is understandable given the low calories. Not sure I can stop for a month as I have been going 3 times a week for close to two years and I enjoy it. Not even sure what I can say as my oldest daughter works there. Since I have started back on IP I have only gone once as I was sick all last week. I have cancelled my next two Saturday sessions as I am busy and tentatively cancelled tomorrow. I understand what she is saying and I makes sense. I guess I will just have to take it one day at a time.
Awesome job Vicjul!!

Has been eating 1 restricted everyday this time around and it hasn't affected my loss...maybe try bootcamp for a week and see if it helps?

WI today was -4.2!! Woo! I also added my WI's from the whole time to my signature. I know that helps me to see other people have had slower weeks too. I can't believe it's almost been 3 months!


I'd be going a bit crazy smelling ribs all day too. Ouch. Keep strong! You can do it!

Thanks Jordanna, bootcamp is when you don't eat any restricted for a week right?

I think I hit ketosis in the middle of week 2. And I have not been super hungry since. Don't get me wrong I do have days when I am starving. But I find that if i just throw in an extra packet or eat an egg I am satisfied.

*Warning* Food vent... skip if you're easily triggered!

Damnit! A volunteer came in to work today and brought donuts. Just when I'm feeling weak. No, I won't eat any, but I'm annoyed by having to defend my reasoning behind not eating them- damned food pushers!

Okay, vent/rant over. Just had to share somewhere I know people will understand.

Hi all,

Just checking in. I'm 2.5 weeks in and going for my first official WI tomorrow at noon. I've been delayed on WI's as I've been on the road for the first two weeks. I'm interested to see what the numbers look like as I know my clothes are fitting better and my unofficial scales have me down around 15 pounds.

Back to cleaning the garage!

My coach did tell me that I might have slower losses than the average 3-7#, but I would probably drop inches quicker. I don't really care, as long as the fat comes off.

If you don't want to stop, then don't. Just take it down a notch. I have been OP for 3 weeks and have always had a loss. I am also fitting into clothes that I couldn't wear at this weight the last time I was under 160. So, I think that the exercise IS helping to lose inches, even if I am only down 10# in 3 weeks. It is up to you, but there is no way I am ever going to stop exercising.
I also have worked out pretty much daily on ip.

I add an extra packet or 2 hb eggs on workout days.

I lost fairly quickly, and now you can see my muscle tone from all that hard work!

I have phased off ip, but onto a lower carb diet than phase 4, no flour, grain or sugar. I have not added in a cheat day, but my coach thinks I should.

I never got down to my original goal of 140. I hover around 145, but I can wear a size 4/6 and think I am satisfied with my results.

I keep considering give phase 1 a few more weeks to see if I can't lose the last 5, but summer seems to get in the way! There is food and drink everywhere!

Before I found IP, I was eating clean, all organic foods, "proper" portions all of that, plus working out 5-6x a week. And of course, did not lose hardly any weight. Not even much fat, because my clothes still weren't fitting! I know you can all relate to how frustrating that is.

I am so glad I found IP, or rather my doctor did and recommended it to me. He kept after me about it and I was hesitant because I am not really all that big on pre-packaged foods. But he kept telling me and telling me that it would be great, and he was right!

And one thing is for sure, I haven't been in the 150's in almost 1.5 years and it feels so good. I actually hit my goal which was out of the 160's by the end of June. Next goal is out of the 150's by the end of July. And finally, my clothes are starting to fit again!
That is exactly what happened to me! I was working out 5-6 times a week for 2-3 hours at a time, and eating 1200-1500 cals of clean foods a day. I lost NOTHING, which prompted me to go to my doctor to make sure I didn't have a thyroid problem or something. Anyway, he's the one who recommended this program as well. So yeah, I just wanted to say congratulations on your current loss and being in the 150's!

I just finished my first week. It does take some time to adjust, but you don't have to feel hungry all the time. Drink some tea (I drink decaf), and lots of lots of water. That will help some. Also, for the first few days I made sure to eat plenty of lettuce, that kept me full longer.

Good luck!

Hi everyone! I had my 4th WI yesterday afternoon and lost 2.2lbs. I have to say that even though I lost I was a little disappointed. I know that I will not have large losses every week but I was hoping to be out of the 200s by next week and I know that is not going to happen. Oh well I have lost and that is always a good thing! I am still proud that after a month I have not cheated once! I am so loving the pudding muffins!!! Just tried lemon and they were amazing!!!! Good luck everyone on the second half of the day!!
