I am thinking not as I only show about 2 lbs less on the scale and for my second week I thought my weight loss would be a bit higher.
Hi Renewing Myself - I love your site name. Isn't that exactly what we are all doing on this program!

I have a long running problem with water retension (on meds for it) so what I had to do to lose the water may not apply to you. I retain more water than the average person. If I drink too much water or have too much sodium in my diet I swell up. My hands, ankles, feet and even toes will swell up, and if it gets too bad, it goes up my calves. When I started IP I increased my water intake and used the sea salt as directed. I started running into problems so my coach, doctor and I decided I should limit my water to 8 - 9 cups a day and not use the sea salt. Within 2 days all of water was gone. If you have the same problem you may want to decrease your water and salt. But be careful as you may become light headed because you are not getting enough electrolyes. I don't have this problem though because of my body chemistry. Talk to your coach to find the best solution for you. Good luck!

[QUOTE=DanafromAustin;4187990]I'll let you know how my non Mio week goes. I did peek at the scale today after my very clean way of eating yesterday (got in all of my water with lemon only) and I lost a pound. Now it may be consistence, time will tell this week.


I too decided to start this week out without MIO to see if results changed. Week one down 5 lbs week two down 5 lbs, week three added MIO to water and no loss. I know the third week is supposed to be less, so that was ok. After jumping on the scale yesterday I'm now down 1 lb. Hmmmmm, guess my body isn't liking the MIO as much as I do. Good luck to you!!!

I tend to be a stress/emotional eater so I am planning my food for the day and sticking to it. I need some good thoughts this morning.


Hope you all have a successful day!
I feel for you. I had my daughters last name changed when she was almost 4. We had no problems with it. Her bio father is a turd and was in prison at the time. I think the judge seen what a loving family she now has and was more than happy to do it. Hope it all works out great for you. It sounds like you have a plan in place for your food so that is the biggest hurdle right there. Just take it one minute at a time and remember you are SO worth it

Here's hoping you all have a great day!
I love your positive attitude! Just keep saying that. Make sure you try and drink all your water and eat what you can. You will be so glad you did your best to stick with it when you are feeling better. Hope you are feeling better soon.

OK OK OK....DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!!......i may have stayed the same last week but this week I loss 6lbs!!!!!....I am super excited I also loss 5 inches this week. So I am short 2 days to making 9 months on the Ideal Protein Program and have loss 124lbs and 82 inches over all (hips, breast, thorax, waist, arm and thigh). I have gone from a size 36 pants to a loose size 24, Bra a VERY FULL 54DD to a 42C, and shirts from a tight 5x to a 2x almost in an XL. This has been the best 9 months in my life. I have 13lbs left to go to reach my original goal of 250lbs, once I hit that I will continue to my next and final goal of 200lbs!!.....I want to be there by my one year anniversary of being on Ideal Protein.

THIS just goes to show you that IF you stick to it THE POUNDS WILL COME OFF!!!!!...I did NOTHING different from last week, I drank my MIO, used Splenda, did the SAME exact thing as the week before. Your body goes through changes EVERY WEEK...THIS is why you have small or no losses at all!

Well, it was a family style service. There was nothing I could nibble on as it was all stuffed pastas with cream sauces and merlot braised beef. Desert was blueberry cheesecake with homemade wipped cream and apple cobbler with carmel and ice cream. All of this food is being passed back and forth, me even having to pass it to others so it was right under my nose. I had the waiter take all my plates and silverware away so I couldn't taste it even if I wanted to. The interesting this is I really didn't want it. I was suprised how easy it was to just pass on it. I sat there and didn't care what people thought. I assumed they would conclude that I was on a special diet or something and no one said anything to me. I am proud of myself for making it through the event and coming out the other side stonger.

We all can do this if we just stay strong and true to ourselves!

Good luck to everyone today and have a fabulous OP day!
That is such a great feeling to actually not want to kill for what others are having at these type of functions! I just had one myself a week ago and after watching everyone stuff themselves with all the carb ladden foods and sit there almost falling asleep, I felt so proud of myself!

YOU GO GIRL!!

Renewing Myself - I also wanted to add that I do not eat most of the soups. I only use the lower sodium ones (broccoli & cheese and tomato basil) maybe once a week and sometimes the veggie chili (lower in sodium than most soups) and if I having a pasta craving I'll have the spaghetti although it is higher but only like once a month or so. Attached is the nutritional information fact sheet someone else shared. This may help you choose lower sodium options.

Congrats WUV! I am 100% committed to staying OP until I reach my goal and can't wait to buy new cloths along the way. I am also looking forward to wearing cute high heels although the height on some of them now scare me!
