  • Happy Hump Day!

    A little sleepy here-went to bed too late last night then the dog had to go out at 3:30 or so and I had trouble falling back to sleep.

    Good luck to everyone that has weigh-ins today!

    Wow-hard to believe that I started IP one month ago today! I think this is the longest I have absolutely been 100% faithful to a diet and probably the first time I have not went out to eat for a month! Actually yesterday, took my son to Crackel Barrel after his doctor appt. He ate (looked yummy!) and I drank coffee then went home and had my IP lunch.

    Ready to dig in and make this a great Month! Would absolutely LOVE to be in Phase 2 by Thanksgiving and then be totally finished and phased off before Christmas. It would be the.best.Christmas.gift.ever!!

    When did you start IP?
  • Good Morning all!! Today I go for my 6th week WI... I will also be getting some different IP packs today so I am hoping that they will be Ok. I have pretty much stuck to 2 rtd shakes and chips but it was time for a change. I hope everyone has a great day!!!!
  • So, I had my first night time weight-in since starting IP. A big difference from weighting in before breakfast! My weight only went down .4 lbs from last week (I probably lost more since my scale in the morning showed a 3.5lb loss). But, my body fat went down 3% in a week!!!! And my body water is finally in the green. I have been struggeling with drinking water and find that keeping some lemon juice on hand to add to it makes it more palatable for me.

    I should be in the healthy body fat range by my next weight-in, which will be in the morning .
