Good morning everyone! Had my wi yesterday...down another 5 in two weeks. Couldn't go last week. I had no power due to a snow storm and was stuck in the garage. Fun stuff..lol!
I don't know if anyone else has this problem or if it is just me and my fat girl syndrome, but I literally hate going to weigh in. I could talk myself out of it every week. I get stressed out and sick to my stomach and it is all over that darn scale. I can't even get excited after losing weight because I can't get over the stressed feeling. Weird I know! I think it is from years of getting on the scale and being so disappointed. I eventually just quit weighing. Now that I am having to weigh again, all those old feelings have come back. How do you get over this?
I hope everyone has a wonderful OP day!!!

@Cadu. I have a GF who works in the school system. She tells me all the time how frustrated she is when budget cuts come through. it KILLS her to have to cut time to her kids. Just know, it's not always just you that frustrated and that you have an ally!

@Cadu...Your post truly made me smile. So proud of you! You are your daughters voice and biggest supporter. If you don't fight, and fight hard, for your daughter then no one will! I am a preschool special needs teacher and I see these fights all the time. It makes me so frustrated for some of these children that just slip through the cracks because they are not getting what they need. You go girl!!

I guess it all comes down to how we feel about ourselves can reflect how others see us and react to us. They seemed to take me more seriously.

Or maybe it was all in my head lol. all I know is it felt good to feel that confidence and not to just want to stay in my house so no one can see me.

I don't know if this makes any sense I just wanted to share.

have a great day everyone!

Carol
Kudos to you!!!! Hang in there and stay positive

You are going to have to change your way of thinking....you have to say to yourself...I AM GOING TO SUCCEED AND WEIGHING ON THIS SCALE IS GOING TO PROVE THAT!......You WILL succeed on this program IF you stick to it. Each week you will see your body change, sometimes you will even see it daily change. Give yourself a little time to get used of having results and good results. You will look forward to WI's soon. I hadn't been on a scale I know in over 6+years, when I was asked what I weighed at the Dr I would just say 350 cuz the scale wouldn't go high enough. Only to my amazement when I did finally get on the scale I weighed in at 388lbs, you wanna talk about disbelief? Once I started this program and starting seeing the results I saw I started looking forward to going to WI every Wednesday because I KNEW it would be GOING DOWN!....Wednesday's are the highlight of my weeks now, I can't wait to WI and I EVEN LOOK at the number now....before I didn't wanna look but again I couldn't SEE the numbers. Once you wrap your mind around the program your thoughts will change....I promise

Good morning everybody!

I have spent all morning crafting and I have a random, non-IP question to throw out there...

Does anyone here do jewelry/beads? (I have a supply question I can't find an answer to- I'm asking everywhere I can online, hahaha)

on an IP related note, my big batch of chicken noodle soup is simmering. I found a GREAT Deal on miracle noodles on Amazon but they all expire this week

My coach told me yesterday that I was doing good, and I haven't cheated, She was impressed. Started week 4 on IP and its becoming a way of life know. I can not believe that I struggled for years to try and stop drinking mcdonalds sweet tea and here I am 4 weeks later, and could careless for it. Wow what a change.

Thanks to this forum for all your encouragment and different post of encouragment. I am so glad I found this site. Sometime just reading how someone else overcame a struggle helps me overcome my struggles.


THANKS YOU, THANK YOU, and THANK YOU
It is amazing and great victories for you!! I think I have McDonalds now too

Good Morning IPeeps:

Well, it was weigh in time this morning, another .6 gone, not much, but it is something. I didn't get all my water in last week like I should, the scale is showing me that. But hey......I'm .6 less fat that I am carrying around on my body.


Carol, I know exactly what you are talking about. My daughter is special needs and it is a fight each IEP meeting. I always left teh meetings feeling like I was never heard, because of this and that. I have a meeting on 3/8, we'll see if I have the confidence that you have.

Default Small Victories!

Good morning everyone!!

You are all so amazing and encouraging :-) I love reading all of your posts about your progress/struggles/victories. It's nice to know others are experiencing the same things as I am.

I'm finishing up week three on IP and will have my third official weigh-in on Thursday afternoon. My first two weeks were great!! This week, however, I've been out of my routine and the scale is not budging. I'm hovering right around 230 - 231.

Good news, though!! I realized one of my victories this past weekend. My husband and I went to TJ Maxx on Sunday and I purchased two new pair of pants, one size smaller than normal, and four shirts, two sizes smaller than normal. I am so excited to be "shrinking" out of my clothes, rather than "growing" out of my clothes :-) Next week I'll need to purchase some new bras and panties -- even those are too big!

Keep up the great work everyone!!

= one for every 5 pounds lost

Sometimes it's the tape measure that moves and not the scale. The scale is our instant gratification that the diet is working, but it's not the only way to know that the diet is working! I notice it in how my clothes fit, even on the slower weeks. Just remember, your body is reshaping itself and will take time off to do those adjustments.

What you said makes total sense to me! Instead of hiding in the back we are proud of our accomplishments and this is reflected in how we present ourselves, I find I stand taller and more confident instead of trying to be "un-noticed"

Sounds like you did fantastic!

I realize that some people are having issues with the scale and what it does or doesn't say, but the reality is that we have good weeks and bad weeks. With that said, I have to say I have totally enjoyed the support that I have seen given to everyone that needs it. I think Tenniels said it very succinctly when she stated it was probably psychological...I believe it is. Even with the 25 pounds lost I still see the same "fat" person in the mirror every time I look and it will take a while for the brain to catch up I'm sure...probably longer than I want...

I appreciate each and everyone of you who are here supporting each of us back and forth because it is what is getting me through this journey!!!

Tenniels I don't for a second feel as if you are whining or whatever word you used yesterday...I think you truly are having a hard time with the ups and downs of that pesky scale and you've come to the right place just keep coming back and we'll keep being here for you!!!
Just wanted to thank you again for the support, it really means a lot, more than I can put into words Sometimes I just feel like a frazzled freak compared to all you that seem so "zen" about the IP/weight loss process I honestly don't know if I'd be where I am in my journey if I didin't have this forum and all of you wonderful people. We're in this together, and I hope someday I can be there for you guys the same way you have been for me. Here's to a new day. A new ON PROGRAM day of course

P.S- I weighed myself this morning as per usual and I was 154.6lbs (so down 0.2lbs from my morning weigh in yesterday). I really must have packed on the water weight through the day yesterday. This week I am weighing early (usually go Mondays but will be Saturday) because I can't make my regular day. My appointment is earlier in the day so I'm hoping it will all even out with my "official" numbers.

P.P.S- Purplesky: My coach measures me in six places and I had lost inches in a couple area's for a total of 1.5inches lost at yesterday's weigh in. I haven't had the big 5 inch losses that some people have, although I have lost over a foot off my body since the start. Surprisingly my bicep has shrunk which I am super happy about. Now if I only that hip/thigh weight would start melting off. All in due time I suppose. I will continue to post my official weigh in results on my signature, but follow my weight at home for my own peace of mind. That is the most consistent weigh-in anyways. Thanks for your support
