I got on the scale today and....150's!! 158.4 so happy to hit this. I know every loss is important, but this seems a big psychological point to me.
Congrats Samba! We all have those special milestones!

Just wanted to say many people are not using IP products and are going fine. There are threads about alternative products.

Thanks Pat, and no I hadn't had anyone answer yet, just wanted to make sure I wasn't screwing up a good thing. I've added a light walk to my daily routine now, just 20 minutes around the neighborhood outside where I work during my lunch break, hoping that'll help maintain my loss #'s and also tone up my bum and legs.

Here it is 2 days later and no budge on the scale. So it isn't the big c. I follow everything to a t so I don't know why I still haven't seen results. I still am hungry all the time, even after adding a few salads, two eggs and sometimes an extra packet. Then I get upset over what I can eat and what others are told. I have been having red pepper a few times a week and then told no, can't do that. Same thing with cabbage. Had that twice, but now told nope, you suck. AGH!!

I feel so bad, I had to leave work early because we had a baby shower and I just couldn't be in there. It is going to be hard these next 3 weeks. I have two teacher appreciation lunches, four dinners, a carnival tomorrow and a parents breakfast. If my WI goes good this week and it budges then it will help me stay focused and on track. On top of all that I will be hosting two get togethers because my BIL is coming in from Japan. Oh me, oh my!

WOW, I didn't realize I was being so negative. I am usually always a happy person and lately no one wants to be my friend and now I can see why! Sorry. I will try to put myself in a better mood and be more positive!! is that better??!!!!!!!!!!!

After many years in education I have found out that school staff rooms are awash in processed carbs. It is a never ending cycle of gazillion things to celebrate.

Add to that we are so incredibly busy during the time that the kids are there and we are multitasking at such a high level it often is not even registering on us what we are actually eating.

I started to wonder why all teachers (and other staff) are not massively overweight instead of just many of us. I started paying more attention to what and how people at work were eating.

It seems that some lucky people have great metabolisms; many people are far more physically active than I am and some people are very selective about what they choose to eat.

I finally realized that I had to be a member of that third group. I decided that what ever was being celebrated or appreciated could be done without food. I learned to totally block out whatever food was being brought in. I planned my own food and brought it with me. If it is potluck I always bring a big salad.

Anyway I have gotten to the point that I don't even notice all the goodies in the staff room anymore. I have coffee and chat with everyone and people don't even notice I am not eating the stuff that was supplied, That is because there are many other people who have always done that.

Sounds tough but over the years it is unbelievable how much bad for you food comes your way. This is not an IP matter but a long time of bad choices I wish I had learned to overcome earlier in my life.

But you really do need to get the digestive issues under control if you can figure out what balances out for you between the Big C and the other extreme.
It is very tough to stay on track with that going on.

Good luck!

Pat

Another WI, another pound gone. Not a spectacular loss, but I'll take it after the 6.6 last week. It always somehow evens out... Hope the whoosh fairy will come back next week.

Took a pic of myself tonight - that was about time. Will keep updating as pounds come off.

Have a great night and a wonderful IP day tomorrow!

Default What would you do? Need advice suggestions...

Prior to starting the IP diet, I had visited a local doctor and she stated the start up fee was $250. After researching the effectiveness of this diet, I decided to go for it. So I joined up and its been about $90 dollars per week. I have lost a total of 12lbs in three weeks. So this week, I decided to see who else has the IP diet. I called around and one facility was charging $150 start up fee and then $90 per week. Oh and the food was about the same price everywhere. Since I already paid the $250 I don't think it would make sense to go elsewhere and pay another $150. But I guess my question is would it be in poor taste to mention to the coach that there was another facility that chargers $100 less? I figured she probably charged that because she is also a medical doctor. Here is another question...there is a local pharmacy that is open later and has the foods for the same price. They do not do the consulting but they sell the foods and supplements. Do you think I should go there and get my foods? OR should I just stick to the doctor? Her hours are also until 5 which stinks since its hard for me to get there earlier and she at times don't have appointments that are suited to my needs. The other location has Saturday hours. Sigh...what to do?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Having a doctor monitor you should be worth some money. If she understands ip and has done it herself...it's hard to do this without a coach unless you are very motivated...

Help! I think I am stuck! I have been following this protocal to the letter since Monday (kinda fell off the wagon over the weekend) and I am not in Ketosis yet! My coach moved me to the alternative plan last week. I thought that was keeping me out of Ketosis so I changed back to the regular plan on Wednesday. Still no change. Any advice?

Thanks for any suggestions.
Buy food where you want you don't owe anyone anything. I was told once the initiation fee was paid I could go to any IP clinic. Mine is run by an MD too. It was $100 to join. This may depend on your market. I'm glad it was $100 I don't think I would have paid $250 just for the consult.

Knowing what I do now I would have paid the $250.
