MY son will be 1 in 12 weeks and not hating the way I look in his birthday pictures is my first mini goal! I think that is the key...to set mini goals, with IP they are quick to reach as long as you stay OP!
Can I just thank you for posting this? I too fell off the wagon after losing 30 lbs in 2 months, and have gained 8 lbs back. Knowing that you quickly shed your gain after recommitting is encouraging. I'm struggling with a defeatist attitude. Sometimes it seems like I'll have to eat nothing but IP for the rest of my life but I know that's not true. It's a means to an end and at the end of this journey I won't even care for all of the garbage I've been gorging on these past few weeks. This isn't just about weight loss. It's also about becoming the fit, healthy person I know I'm meant to be. I think I'm getting my groove back.
