Keep it up, you'll get it off!!! Some weeks are lower than others but overall the IP plan will work, just stick to it. I know its emotinally draining but stay positive, looks like you are on the right track!!! Congrats on losing

Can anyone confirm please?
I specifically asked my coach at my last weigh in about if ANY color of peppers were fine and she said yes it didn't matter that they were fine

I weigh every day to see if I am losing consistently, because checking once a week on a bad day could be way too discouraging.The doctor's scale is for the doctor's benefit. I still jump around when she see's a three pound loss, but I know darn well it's actually a four pound loss and I'm grinning inside.

USE THE SCALE THAT KEEPS YOU MOTIVATED!!!!

You are doing everything right, but watch that water. This is SOOOOO important and will make a huge difference on the scale. Also, you and hubby should both take some sort of probiotic or something else to make sure your colons doing it's job. All the protein on this diet can back you up and that can weigh so much it's ridiculous.

Water, Water, Water

I drink 10+ glasses a day, everyday. No exceptions.

Bars/Restricted foods: My coach told me Saturday that I should eat 1 restricted food per day. I'm not sure I'm into that, and if my weight loss changes I will stop immediately. I think you're right to restrict the bars. Maybe even once every other day. Also, I eat my "meat" protein for lunch. I'm not a dinner person and it gives me the energy I need for all my daytime stuff.

Hope that helps!
Exactly...my scale at home is weighing me consistently lower and the doctor said she was happy that it was showing change that it made her even more assured that the program was working. I do weigh myself first thing in the morning, but will also a few times during the day to get a feel for what it's registering at those times.

You mentioned a priobiotic for colon health...my honey has ALWAYS had a bad time with that and with the diet it's even worse, sometimes he goes up to 6 days without going So any ideas to help him would be great.

What does everyone think about Biotin as a supplement??

And does anyone else have constant heartburn?

YAY PEPPERS!

And as far as Biotin, I'm for it, I took it a while back (like years and years) to help my nails grow faster, I hear it could help with the potential hair loss as well.

Also, don't restrict yourself too much, if you do it could cause you to go into starvation mode, which is no good.
What program are you using to track your daily progress
