Good morning All. I just had a disappointing internal job interview. Disappointing because there are lot's of candidates and it's not a given.. Anyway walked into the staffroom and there on the table was a large chocolate cake. Thinking, will I have a small slice? Then a colleague said to me "Wow you are really looking slimmer, the weight is falling off you." So, delighted I turned away and left without any cake!!!! YAY. Have a great weekend.

A very satisfying triumph, I should think. Good luck over Christmas, and the swim suit. Just remember that piece of cake?

Good morning. Today I will be remembering the 11th anniversary of when my father went to heaven. Also today is my 5th weigh in, I think I'll have some good numbers.

Good morning all!

Runner11!! I just saw your post. I am only on day 2 of phase 3! Right now I am eating my Greek yogurt, sunflower/flax toast with peanut butter and blueberries. I might add an egg for protein today. I haven't got into the cereal yet but I do have some Fiber one cereal, I think some use Kashi golean. I am enjoying eating again!

I have tuna everyday for lunch with my lettuce, green onion, chopped up pickle, and walden farms 1000 island, absolutely love it!!! I don't need mayonnaise at all.

Good morning everyone! WI #9 last night - down another 4.6! I didn't WI last week due to the holiday and wasn't sure how big of a loss I would have due to TOM earlier this week. I was so happy with the 4.6! That makes a total of 31 pounds. My goal was to lose 30 by the wedding and I still have a month to go!

The wedding is 4 weeks from tomorrow and I am so thankful I found IP. I am so much more comfortable in my skin and will have no problems taking tons of pictures. Tomorrow morning is my first dress fitting and I am so excited to see how big my dress is and compare myself in a picture from back in March when I first tried it on.

My bachelorette party is tomorrow and I discussed with my coach as I will be partaking in a couple of cocktails. Definitely will have to take it slow as I haven't had any alcohol in almost 3 months!

Have a great Friday and weekend! Yeah for IP!

Good morning from windy Alberta.

I have my third weigh in tomorrow, excited to see the numbers. I feel better and lighter and been doing really well most of this week. So I am already happy without seeing the numbers on the scale.

I have caught a full fledged head cold and would love to stay home from work today. Got to much to do so best head into the office.

Will be going out tonight for a short while to mingle with some old friends at a pub and listen to a entertainer who is specatular. I do not drink much so not really missing the alcholol but it occured to me last night in bed that maybe i could have virgin ceasar? the clam juice? with a piece of celery.
Any thoughts?

Thank you and have a wonderous day. It's Friday.

Good morning Ipeeps:

Yesterday was a terrible day for me... i cryed myself to sleep, because i miss all the people that i left behind in Portugal... my mum was really sad to se me like that and because of that i become even sadder!!!
Anyway, reviewing the end of the night yesterday a positive thing came to my mind... i didn't turn to food to confort me, and i didn't even remember that!!!
Today is a gorgeous sunny day with a lot of cold, my favourites days are just like today... so it's a new day
Like one friend told me "time will cure everything"...
Anyhoo i am down almost 42 pounds... and really happy because of that!!! Just can't say enough how i love IP...

Have a wonderfull day ipeeps!

Good luck on your weigh in!! It sure is Windy, we had Hurricane 1 winds last week, sure glad those are gone!


I have my WI this morning and our Company Xmas dinner tonight, I am glad we were able to pre-order our dinner with any special needs. Have a great weekend everyone. We are planning on decorating outside & inside this weekend.

Good Morning,

This week is only half over before my next weigh in for week 4, I am struggling more this week as my TOM is over a week late but by this site have realized that it is normal but i am still stressing over it until it comes.Also finally my leg pain has went away so able to have some good sleeps.

But as everyday goes by I realize that this diet has worked so far so not giving up on it.

Time to go grocery shopping again. Have a wonderful day!

Good morning, everyone!! Went yesterday for WI #7 and was down another 5 pounds!! This plan is amazing!! I even started my TOM yesterday and still had a great number so I am very happy today!! Now if I can just get through this weekend without cheating...going shopping out of town with my two besties. But they are both doing similar plans so it shouldn't be too difficult. At least they understand what "no cheating" means!! LOL!!

Congrats to everyone with losses and NSV's!!! Best of luck to those who may be struggling...that, too, shall pass!! Have a great OP weekend!!
