I have been drinking all the water. even a bit more on some days.

What about almond milk, I didnt have skim, so I put some in my coffee in the mornings.

I am also not exercising.

I had my second WI today and lost 3 pounds. I exercised yesterday for the first time since I started and I was soooo tired....I ended up having a nap-then just laid around for the rest of the day and complained when I had to drag my body out of my chair. I hope this is not what it is going to be like each time I exercise. I used to exercise 3-4 times per week prior to IP and did not feel as tired. Maybe I need to build up my endurance again. Thank you to all for your threads and encouragement. This is definitely a test of our Will and discipline.
Hi just wanted to tell you I started arond the same time the 18th. So nice to meet you. I have been lucky not to be suffering with those things. I did have cravings this weekend but not bad. I am here if you need.

Thanks, Nessa! We are making this weight loss journey together on 3FC! About the cravings and the tiredness, it is really up and down, but I have learned a lot about myself in these last few weeks. About mentally pushing through... I hope you are enjoying the long weekend!!!

I have read on here that a few people use almond milk for their coffee, I am sure if you use it in moderation every now and then you will be fine.

Don't despair, things do get easier!! The 1st week was the most difficult for me. However, after my 1st WI, motivation kicked in!!!!!

akscutest, there are sugar-free chocolate syrups you can buy from Torani that you can put in your IP drinks or puddings or whatever. I use them.
Helps with the need for sweet things.

Default First Week

I starte IP on 9/7. The third day has been my toughest but since then, I have felt great! No more bloated tummy or 3 o'clock crash. I've kept it basic so far while I get used to it but look forward to using the recipes that I have found on this site. My work has started a new weight loss clinic and so there are a lot of my co-workers that are just starting too and the support has been overwhelming. I can't wait to see where this takes us!
