    WI# 19 was only a 1.2lb loss but itís better than a zero. Lost 2 inches so Iím still shrinking

    My coach wants to add another protein packet to see if we can get the scale moving again. It worked last time we did it and I probably should have kept until I got to a lower weight before we took it out.

    I had a slow week this week too, but still lost inches so more than happy with that. Sure is nice seeing those bigger numbers though!!

    Great work!

    You will do it...Im hoping for my goal or close to it by July, but Im thinking with these slow weeks, a more realistic projection is August. For whatever reason, Im having another slow week, but hey, Ill take whatever I get.

    Awesome. Writing it down helps focus me. I've never been one to make written goals but is has been helping.

    I agree any weight loss is a step in the right direction. Your close!!
  • Well, I played golf this morning for the first time in 8 months. That was pre-IP and 83lbs. ago. Man is it different not having to swing around my middle. I played with a bunch of guys from the Shrine Temple golf unit and they usually have a very small filter when it comes to telling you what they think. Some of these guys have known me since I was in my early 20ís but havenít seen me for almost 2yrs. One guy who I initiated into the Shrine about 3yrs. ago swore he had never met me. I had fun telling him I was the big guy whose cowboy hat his wife stole at the dance that night after a few margaritas.

    What a fun day.
    Thanks for all the support and guidance. Only 45 more pounds to goal
  • That's awesome! Way to go!

  • Cross post from daily chat -

    NSV for me this morning. Got on a pair (Barely) of 36 jeans I haven't fit into for over a year and a half!! Congrats to all of those with victories this week!

    Figured we better keep our mens thread bumped, nice to have other guys to chat with.
  • Just checking in and saying hi. I just started this diet yesterday and am very happy to see your numbers.

    I'm looking forward to seeing more results....as well as checking out some recipes
  • Hey men! Another newbie to the site. Started IP last week, and had my first WI yesterday afternoon. I was 10lbs down. Pretty happy with that result. My clinic starting weight was 233, my home starting weight was 230. Both show the same result with a 10 lb loss. Week 2, and I bought quite a few more meals, as I was getting sick of some the same things from the first week. Now I have a lot more options for food. My DW is very supportive of me doing this program, and is right in there with weighing the meat portions for supper, and trying different ways to eat the veggies. To tell you the truth, I've never been more stoked about a weight loss program before in my life. I am extremely excited to see the end result. Right now, I set my goal weight for 190 but who knows, I may go lower. Anyway, I look forward to getting more information for this forum, and conversing with my fellow IP men! (And women too!)

    Thanks!

    It's been pretty good so far.

    I like the soups and I'm not getting overly hungry between meals. If the rest of the week is anything like the first two days I think I'll fly right through
