7lb is an EXCELLENT loss! You should be so proud of yourself! Remember that everyone loses at a different rate, so do not compare yourself, but I have to say that so far you are doing OUTSTANDING! That is 7lb gone forever, just stick with it!

Have fun Beanie! Waterparks are something I have been dreading, and my hubby has been looking forward to now that my son is coming of water slide age soon...now I am not going to let a stupid swimsuit beat me anymore! Have a great time!

Kinifer - 7 pound loss in week 2 and you feel cheated? really? When have you ever lost 7 pounds in a week before? celebrate that loss, it is awesome.

Good Morning everybody!

3 weeks from today is our big shin dig so today we will be working on the landscaping to spruce the place up. It will be quite laborious but at least the temperature has dropped so that will help.

Have a great day everyone.
Man...I really have to get up to The Garden State for that groovy party!

Good morning I Peeps! Am getting some laundry done before heading down to a graduation openhouse, about 2 1/2 hr drive. Will see lots of family, including my 6 yr old granddaughter I haven't seen since Christmas!

Sounds like a lot of us have fun plans for the weekend, and plan to take our packets & veggies with us

Kinifer - is that 7 lbs total loss, or just for week 2? Either way, you're losing and that's the goal, right? I didn't have a WI for week 3, and 'only' lost 3 1/2 lbs for weeks 3 & 4 combined, but lost 5"! Hang in there. There will be good weeks, not so good weeks, and GREAT weeks! Stay 100% and you will see results! Be sure you get your salt in and up to 3 tablespoons of olive oil each day (per my coach). She also has me taking extra Vitamin D3 every day. That helps to lose weight too. Good luck!

Great advice for Kinifer

Happy Weekend everyone! I have a busy one planned also. This morning I am housecleaning and later my one year old granddaughter is coming for about 4 hours. Tonight going out to a sushi place but called ahead and assured I can get plain salad (no dressing) and shrimp so I am good. Tomorrow church then clean up patio because I am having a barbeque with my DB and SIL and BIL with maybe a niece thrown in for extra fun! So I really have to clean the house! I really hate housework; it is so funny when I was in my 20s and 30s I loved it and now I can hardly stand it; but I have to because I have three small dogs (hair and dirty feet) so I really must do more of it than ever! As the dogs pass away; I will not replace them! Remember I said that and hold me to it!
Love you All!!

Wuv, I envy you getting to see a car show. First weekend in a while DH and my schedules coincide and not a car show in sight. What's even more discouraging; none of our 11 classics are road worthy right now. DH retires in a month, so here's hoping he can get lots back on the road.

BTW, I thought I've read every daily post for the last few months, but I don't remember hearing much about your new guy. I know he's a long haul trucker and gone a lot. I don't remember you telling us about you first meeting a few weeks ago. At least, what I'm hearing now sounds really positive. Just wondering.



Read about your kitty perils last night, but had no time to post to tell you I'm so happy. Told DH about it and he just can't understand how people can be like that.

I'm sure now you will have the best weekend.


Now for me, WI this morning and had a loss, 2.6#. Thought it would be more after the big ZERO last week, but I am a tad bit short on my water in the last couple days and really L O N G on stress (Thursday was one of the worst at work). Even with the lower loss, I'm into the 220's and have lost now 62 total pounds. My scale calcs what it sees as my ultimate weight and it is now registering in the lower 160s I may have to adjust my goal. It's just been soooooooo long since I've even been under 200, that 185 seems unattainable, but we'll see in a few months.

Finally, have to tell you this funny NSV. DH has not really said anything to me about my weight loss until last night. Hope you get a laugh from this.

Our conflicting schedules don't give up much time together and so we don't get into our hot tub at the same time much, but have more in the last couple weeks. Last night he'd had a bit to drink and when we were in the hot tub, he stammered and said, "I don't know how to say this, but you don't float as much now, I don't have to hold you down like I did." Back 62 pounds ago, I could get in and would just "pop" to the surface. He would get in and have to put his legs across mine to keep me down. Now, it takes a bit more before I float towards the surface. As silly as this sounds, it made me feel good. I think he has trouble saying anything about my weight or weight loss since he's never had a weight problem (other than not being able to keep it on.) He doesn't know what to say (or not to say).

Everyone have a great OP weekend. Sunny and hot here in the South.
Molly
Wing... Thank you for the laugh. My coffee just about exited via the nose. I am a swimmer and used to refer to my boobs as PFDs (personal flotation devices). I say used to because ....well.. All of me is shrinking.

For me, I am mostly lurking these days. Maintaining in the low 160s and ok with that for now. Have a great day everyone.

*poke* Hey *poke* Yeah you! 7 Pounds is phenomenal! Now I know my response is going to be super stupidly long, so I'm apologizing in advance (my sorry )...Is this the first diet you've tried? If so, be aware this diet works faster and more consistently than a lot of others out there. If it is NOT your first rodeo, how was your loss on your last diet? As others have said, we ALL lose at different weights, and depending how long you were at certain weights your loss may go faster and slower at different "milestones" so to speak. My weigh ins have been relatively small losses each week, but try to look at it this way, 3 months of losing 3 pounds per week is still 36 POUNDS of fat gone for forever. Don't get discouraged from a small number on the scale, just keep trucking' and believe that the scale will snap into shape and realize it needs to move. You CAN do this, if you WANT to do this. If you make excuses, then you can cheat yourself out of the diet and back up to your original weight. One person (I forget who, help anyone?) mentioned that if hunger isn't the problem, then food isn't the solution. What makes you want to "binge and give up"? Just giving up isn't' the same as binging. Are there other factors in your life contributing stress to your program? We are all here for you, and will help you anyway we can. Think of it like this (your avatar says 225/208), only 8 pounds and you are in onederland! So what if that takes 2-3 weeks, you will be a 1_ _ by mid July! Keep your goals small and focused, that helps, and reward yourself (non-foodwise) for accomplishments. If you hit a plateau, look up "happy weight vs ideal weight" article on WebMD
Let me know if you need anything else, and if you need a loser buddy, I'm on Facebook and have chat open most days at work.

Do you remember the day you looked at the size swimsuits (way back when) that you had to buy if you WANTED to go swimming? I remember that day. I hated that day...all the suits were black, included skirts, coverups were hanging next to them and then in the next aisle over were bikinis for "teenie boppers"...very depressing day.

LoL Molly your DH sounds like a total sweetie!! Great job ditching another couple pounds ! I'm sure that stress was helping your body hold onto them a bit to say the least. Missed seeing you on much lately, so super glad to get caught up with what's goin' on in your life!

Good morning IPeeps ... It's the first day DH and I got to sleep through the night, but i think PETA might get called on me because of it...our smallest cat has started crying at 4:00AM (he's 7 years old, just small in size) and the past two nights i had gotten out of bed and slept on the couch, he shuts up when I'm in the living room apparently. Last night, I had it. Dangit I wanted to sleep in my own bed next to DH and try to bake freaking cookies in the morning! (can't do that when we're in opposite rooms) I threw an empty water bottle in the cat's general direction (don't worry, the low plastic 16.9oz ones) and startled him out of the bedroom.

No loss this AM (weigh in will be Monday) but I'm holding at 169.6, so I won't complain about that. Yesterday found out (sadly enough) even with my alternative method that I really shouldn't eat at Champp's American grill...wow...the LOWEST carb options were the wings so I got those (2g/serving, had 2). But everything else started at about 40g and went up from there.

The motorcycle is nearly done, still waiting on Sweden to mail us some parts, and DH is getting REALLY antsy because of it, making life at home stressful. The house is a disaster (blamed on always working in the garage instead of being in the house after work) and I'm just about at my wit's end. Lord give me strength to make it until those stupid parts come in!

Well, i'm off to blog a bit...found out they make soda with Splenda in it now, huh, who knew right? I know the phosphoric acid is the bigger problem, but I'm going to look in to that as well and see "how bad" is bad, because some days I think I'm just going to need me a soda pop (DH stays up like 3 hours later than me, and if I want cookies I need to stay up as late as him, cuz morning cookies are hard to bake sometimes lol) so I can stay awake longer at night. Toodles all!

i'm a swimmer too....like a dolphin in the water!!! i love how swimming makes me feel so weightless!! I have always likened myself to shelly winters in the old movie the poseidon adventure....when shelly winters character saved the day by swimming a guide line through....and then she said, You see, Mr. Scott? In the water I'm a very skinny lady!!!!

HOPE EVERYONE HAS A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!!!!!

Well, only 1.7 down this week, I am hoping it is because of the heat or something. On a positive note, I have lost slightly over 20 lbs. in 5 weeks. I have never done that before!

Don't feel bad, 7 is good! I lost 1.5 my first week and 2 the second. I think you body is adjusting and does not want to let go of the old times. Give it time and stay 100% OP. it will come off. But really, 7 is good!

Yes, DH is my fairytale come true after being alone for 28 years. Glad he remembered me from our classic car days 40 years ago and tracked me down.

I hate stress. My job is tops for that now. DH retires in a month. I'm really looking at just using a bit of my retirement and paying the bills and retiring now instead of working a year or so more. Is it really worth the stress. I'm thinking not.

The job brings me to your last statement about not seeing me much. I barely have time to come home at night and make dinner (sometimes a separate meal for "skin and bones" DH) and read through the posts. By that time it's usually past my bedtime since I leave for work before 7AM. I've worked for 45 years now and since I no longer enjoy my job, I'm ready to retire.

Hello fellow IPeeps! It's a gorgeous day here in Central Ontario, and I'm just about to head out to do some errands. Walking - get some exercise too. Just realized I'm close to running out of my multivits, which of course would be a big no-no. so the drugstore is definitely on my errand route.

Other than errands, there's nothing special going on today. Visiting tomorrow with friends and family for a BBQ so that should be fun. They've already got my request for protocol-appropriate marinated chicken. Very supportive. I'll take a packet of my WF salad dressing, and I know they'll have lots of salad, and a veggie platter.

All the talk about peeing places today.... it made me smile, but it is a real issue while on this diet. When I'm out and about, I make a point of using the 'facilities' whenever I have the opportunity - just in case. And while I welcome the 'need to pee' knowing that it means fat is flushing out of me, I must say I'm looking forward to not having to get up 4+ times through the night to do that. Thank goodness I'm generally able to fall right back into a sound sleep.

Well... too much rambling here. Really just wanted to say 'Hi!' to everyone and wish everyone a great OP day! Enjoy!

So I went to my clinic yesterday to get more food and to get weighed in again. My coach is now perplexed. After my first week I only lost .8 and now this week I went up .2...So they said this week no restricted foods at all and lets see what happens

Yeah! STaying below 170! Let me know what you find out about the soda. I'm not saying i'm gonna stray-its been 6 weeks since I've had a coke-but I'm curious. I totally understand the baking cookies need. I figured since I'd be more self confident that would pick up, but I think I'm making DH less confident so he has not stepped up. Time for him to jump on my bandwagon!

Sounds like a busy weekend, have fun. I hate house work now, do you think I'll grow to like it as I get older?

Any experienced IP's got advice or encouragement?
7lb in 2 weeks is great. I didn't lose that much my first two. STick with it. It is working for you. Everytime you think of cheating, think about how good you'll feel at your next weigh in when you are down lbs if you don't cheat! Keep up the good work!

Cadu,
wanted to tell your most recent picture looks spectacular!

I'm lovin' my home scale today! Down to 149 and holding (I went up 0.2 yesterday only to stay 100% OP-even with going out to dinner-to be rewarded with a 1.2# loss today. YAY! Out of the 150's forever! I hope this week stays consistent! Lots of ball games today if the rain stops and lots of homework due too. Our plan B is to head to town to shop if it keeps raining. Lots of stuff to get for the house. I have an OP plan either way!!

Kinifer, 7 pounds is a great loss in two weeks! Be happy that you've said goodbye to those pounds. Stick with it! You can do this!

Have a great weekend!
Do they still have those light posts with lights shaped like Hershey Kisses? (Ooops, sorry for bringing that up....)

It's the weekend and I'm off on my first travel on IP. A four hour car ride today to one Texas city, then a 4-hour drive to Houston tomorrow. I'll be there for a week with my daughter and the darling identical twin baby girls who will turn one year on Wednesday. The big party is next Sunday and my other daughter is coming in from NY with my sweet 3-yr granddaughter. They all eat pretty healthy, but I know there will be plenty of snacks and snack foods, even "healthy" ones. I'm committed and will stay OP 100%. It's only my second week! A little nervous about it, but determined!

Last night I felt very weak and read the forum threads about that. I know what to do if that happens again. I'm just getting into ketosis and I think my body is adjusting. I hope it will be adjusted by mid-week.

Oh, there I go again! I was so engrossed in reading this daily thread and other email that I forgot to make and drink my IP breakfast. It's one hour past my regular breakfast time. I think that has been an issue of mine in the past: getting so engrossed in my projects that I forget to take care of my own needs. I think this diet will force me to be more conscious about taking care of me. I know I am worth it!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
