Dear Wuv

I have read every post of yours for the last 6 weeks, 4 of these weeks i have been on the program. YOU are the reason i am here and on IP, YOU are the reason i have lost 28.5lbs (the most i have ever lost in one shot in my entire fat girl existence) YOU are the reason i know i CAN keep going. YOU are honest and knowledgeable and a dose of reality never hurt anyone. This is why YOU will make a fantastic coach. Please don't change anything, YOU are perfect as you are. I know this by the affectionate way you speak of your boys and the time you take in your life to help everyone on here in a genuine way. I don't know anyone else would have the heart and kindness to do it so diligently, this is definitely your super power and you are totally my hero

Thank you for all you are and all you do

Candy :) xoxo

p.s. please don't be scared that i e-stalk your posts, i promise my adoration has no creep factor LMAOOOOOOO

1st WI
 
I have my 1st WI scheduled for today, but we had a huge snow storm and now I'm worried I won't have it. So I weighed myself and I was down 6 pounds. Which if this is correct, I'm so excited!

alaskastarr 01-19-2012 02:20 AM

ohhh Yay!!! I'm not the first to post :) lol. I just wanted to post that I had the most awesome NSV yesterday as I was getting ready for work. It's super freezing cold here and I really didn't want to wear a skirt to work today so I pulled out a pair of pants that I haven't been able to wear in a long time and crossed my fingers and pulled them up and THEY FIT!!! I was soo excited, but the what made me more happy was when I checked the size I found they were a full size smaller at a size 14!!!! How cool is that?!?!?!!!

Congrats to all of you on all your successes!!! Keep going and staying OP.

For those of you who have had a few setbacks just get back on track to the best of your ability. We all have setbacks. Some are big and some are small. Just take this one step...one pound at a time. You can do it! We're here for you!!!

Have a great day!

alaskastarr 01-19-2012 02:56 AM

Totally forgot to ask...I just realized I was eating more veggies than allowed :o oopsy is this going to put me off track??? I only did this two days...I'll have to be more careful today though. I ate 3/4 c bell pepper, 3/4 c celery, 3/4 c bok choy, 3/4 cup cucumbers and then some veggies at dinner...I think it put me at about 4.5 to 5 cups for the day of veggies though. I don't want this to mess me up :(

NavyMommy 01-19-2012 08:07 AM

I love the morning when I decide, "meh" let me skip my RTD creamer and just go with a little Splenda in my coffee and I actually like it! It is amazing how much your tastebuds change, even in the 2.5 weeks I've been back OP!

It's supposed to be beautiful here today so I'm off to enjoy the weather!! Hope everyone has a great day!!

ShanCo 01-19-2012 08:09 AM

Second weigh-in yesterday...down 5.2 pounds, so that makes 13.6 pounds in 2 weeks! This is so awesome, I can't believe how satisfied the protein packs keep me! I rarely even think about food, which used to be all I thought about! I am feeling so good, I really want to get back to working out but I love the elliptical and I'm getting mixed reviews on if that is too intense of a workout or not while on IP...thoughts?

What a wonderful NSV. It is so motivating when you can fit into cloths you haven't been able to wear for awhile!

I wouldn't worry about it, you will be fine.

My best advice would be to try the elliptical if you want, but know that it's recommended that you don't work out for the first three weeks. If your weight slows down or stalls then you know it's a problem. I personally strength train only as cardio was slowing my weight down. Whatever form of exercise you do make sure to have some protein before and after you exercise.

LaLibE 01-19-2012 09:27 AM

Good Morning, it's freezing cold here this morning - thank goodness I work from home! I am re-starting IP to lose my holiday pounds and at the same time my husband is following the program using alternative products. Let me just say, he is driving me nuts!! He has not done any reading on the program, he just basically eats what I tell him to eat. The problem is that he is questioning me non-stop! Can I have some cheese? What if I put cream in my coffee, can I just give up my snack? Why do I have to take the vitamins? This bar has 49g carbs, why can't I have it?? C-R-A-Z-Y!!!!! Good thing I love him :)

While Phase 1 the second time around is proving to be a challenge for me, I have to say it is so much easier when I husband is eating what I eat.

Have a great day, stay warm!

Thunder Thigh thoughts...
 
Good morning! It is freezing here today as well-it's -17 degrees! Hope everyone has a great OP day. I am just going right along on this plan and find it extremely easy to stay OP I think because it is so restrictive and no "maybe's" about it. Just straight yes, you can have that and no, you can't have that for the most part. I missed last weeks weigh in due to travelling so I can't wait to see what I will lose this saturday. I do feel like I am "melting" though.
A question I have for those of you who have lost weight and have had a problem with thunder thighs (I have most of my life even when thinner but not nearly as pronounced). Did you find that you lost in that area as well or are you always going to be more pronounced in that area? I am just curious because that is a sore spot with me as it keeps me from smaller sizes a lot of times. I have already gone down in 2 pants sizes and could probably go down another size if not for that area. Then the waist tend to be larger. I have found certain brands that fit well but would love to get rid of the TT.
Any ideas out there that could help me now such as weight training or something else or should I wait a bit? My tracker shows 23#loss but it is closer to 30# unofficially since I haven't weighed in officially.
Thanks for your input.

Hello Elissa,

I totally hear you in here! Not that my husband is doing the same diet I am doing, but for the questioning part! God! It is like everybody questions you for everything, it is like, you can't eat like this, it is not healthy, it is all artificial, why don't you eat real food instead, blah blah blah! And you know what the answer to WHY I don't eat real food instead of this is that I tried every diet on earth with real food and it did NOT work for me, you name it from Weight Watcher to Atkins, to Nutrisystem and to everything in between, I tried and this is the ONLY diet that WORKS!

My husband is a triathlete and now that he is back to intensly train every day for his half iron man competition, he is taking the same shakes that I am using as my alternatives, the whey isolate that I buy, I take half a scoop and he takes a full scoop, so he is not questioning the food I eat, but it is like he is always scared I would not make it all the way through (which I totally understand, since I stopped and cheated on many occasion) but I know I can do this, and this time I don't want to stop before reaching my goal weight and after that I will work on maintenance for the rest of my life, I know that for sure, but for a reason, he is always scared I would not do it, but I know I will.

So, good luck to you, and when your husband questions you, why don't you let him read the book from the dr. who created this diet, you can download it from here, it is at the beginning of every day chat, this way he will get more acquainted with the protocol.

We can do this :) Positive energy :hug:

That's a great question! I too have been "blessed" ;) with t-thighs... Since IP targets fat loss, I'm hoping it would hit all areas equally. Any maintainers or graduates of Phases have any insight on this?

wyo1963 01-19-2012 09:56 AM

Well, Good Morning Everyone! This is day 10 for me, I am on the Do It Yourself IP Plan. I have had a slip up, had 1 cup of ham and beans for dinner the other night. I had only one shake and lots of water etc that day to eat so I splurged. oops I also had 3 sugar free gummy bears after dinner the night before last. I still am loosing, was 191 now last night was 179. First 4 or 5 days killed me. I wanted to eat the paint off the wall! Now I feel great, energy has picked up! I do get on my cardio machine for 20 minutes. Just a light sweat, nothing drastic for now. Had a taco salad minus the shell and cheese. It was great. Can we have any beans on this phase one? Like black beans? There is a drink called MIO, you squirt it in water, its yummy. There are no cal, no carb, no sugars, no fat. Anyone else tried it? Haven't been in the 170's for 4 years, I am so excited! oh ya- how do I put a little # lost scale at the bottom of my pages? You know, the cute little scale?

oh the Thunder Thighs!! lol - I found that I lost my weight very equally on my body - it didn't come off one area at a time. That being said, my thighs are still large... family genes I think. Does your coach measure your thighs, hips, knees, etc? Mine does, and it's nice because it gives you the WHOLE picture.

Well at least he's on it with you. My fiance' isn't, but he is supportive! I wanted to tackle him for the cheese he had on his taco salad last night. :devil:If I was on a desert island, I would take cheese, bread and potatoes. :carrot:

I have thunder thighs also. My unofficial weigh in this week is down another 5lbs, but I've only lost 1 inch in my thighs. I just assumed that since it's my trouble area, that would be the last place I would see the most results.:devil:Mine is definately genetics! Presonally, I'm just happy I'm loosing weight and inches and seeing a difference in my body!

Veggie Question
 
The select vegetables list includes cabbage but then shows in parenthesis red, pak choi and bok choy. Is just regular green cabbage allowed?

I know Wuv has MIO, and I just bought some yesterday. I love the berry pomegranate, and the sweet tea is okay. I never really liked sweet tea to begin with, but the MIO version is satisfactory. I just like having a drink that isn't water! LOL.

This could be considered a NSV-I actually like my coffee black and I'm not tempted by the peanut M&M's that I bought my dad (he's been in a really poopy mood this week). I used to always have my coffee with a ton of French Vanilla creamer, but it tastes fine black with no additives. Peanut M&M's are the only kind I would eat, but now I'm like "eh." I'm very proud of myself! :P

Does your coach measure your thighs, hips, knees, etc? Mine does, and it's nice because it gives you the WHOLE picture.

LaLibe,
Yes she does measure every week but I can't remember what I have lost there specifically. I will be sure to pay attention this week though. I have lost most in my hips and chest (naturally). I was just hoping that the actual shape of that area would change somewhat. I don't mind curvy but there is a difference-LOL. It runs in my family too so maybe it isn't meant to be but I am not giving up hope just yet!
Thank youl.

I have read every post of yours for the last 6 weeks, 4 of these weeks i have been on the program. YOU are the reason i am here and on IP, YOU are the reason i have lost 28.5lbs (the most i have ever lost in one shot in my entire fat girl existence) YOU are the reason i know i CAN keep going. YOU are honest and knowledgeable and a dose of reality never hurt anyone. This is why YOU will make a fantastic coach. Please don't change anything, YOU are perfect as you are. I know this by the affectionate way you speak of your boys and the time you take in your life to help everyone on here in a genuine way. I don't know anyone else would have the heart and kindness to do it so diligently, this is definitely your super power and you are totally my hero

Thank you for all you are and all you do

Candy :) xoxo

p.s. please don't be scared that i e-stalk your posts, i promise my adoration has no creep factor LMAOOOOOOO

I ditto this as well, I've learnt so much from Wuv, more than my coach at times and she is always there if you need a question answered or a pick me up. She is such an inspiration and she will always will be to each and everyone one of us!!! :hug:

I love Mio. I use some of the berry/pom in my crispy rice cereal, I like to mix the sweet tea and orange, I will also add some lemon juice to the sweet tea. What I'm really looking forward to doing is making a smoothie with the vanilla pudding and adding some of the orange...I'm thinking it will taste like a dreamsicle.

MMMMM, that's a great idea!! We don't have Mio in Canada so I will have to pick up orange next trip across the border!

Mamacitaof2,
I just noticed you began 2 days before Christmas! Kudos to you!! Yes, I love the difference I notice and the feeling of "skinnier" and I know I will always be curvy. It is just a wait and see I guess. Just wondered what results others before us have had. It will be interesting hearing.

The peach mango is my favorite! Give it a try. It's like $3.49 or so, but you can get 20 drinks out of it. Good buy. My fiance' really likes it, he's not a regular or diet soda drinker.:D

I know this isn't weight loss related but I just need to vent a second lol. :P

Work is really getting on my nerves. I work from home for a local educational company and I work through their website & over the phone. Okay, so I get a text from my "boss" telling me I needed to get this work done ASAP that I had just gotten, so I get up today & I'm working on it, only to find out they're going to have to redo the whole webpage document that I was working on because *they* messed up. Basically I've wasted almost 4 hours on something that I'm going to get to redo............annoyed. I know I get paid for it, but STILL. I have to redo all of it, just aggravated.

Thanks for letting me vent ;)

lkp888 01-19-2012 10:52 AM

everyone is making me jealous talking about MIO, :( I wish Canada would get some in...I wonder if you can order it online??? going to check that out.

Ditto here! Wuv is an inspiration and without her support and guidance this journey would be more difficult.



Congrats on the 6 lbs! I hope you do make to your official WI today. Keep us posted.


What a wonderful NSV. It is so motivating when you can fit into cloths you haven't been able to wear for awhile!



WOW!! Great job! Keep up the good work!

What is an NSV? Hooray to the "too tight" pants who have been at the bottom of the pile in the closet! Welcome to daylight again!!
