From Rainbow: get cool cooking gadgets: English Muffin rings!
And from Rainbow: Orman Body composition scale! (LOVE MINE)

Most important from Rainbow:
How to plan ahead and stay 100% on Vacation.

LizzR: Taught me the major mistakes I was making on Phase 3 breakfasts (or how to avoid eating 50 grams of fat at breakfast

From LizzR and Rainbow...Cook outside the Box/Packet. You can get really creative with chicken soup mix!

Overall, a consistent message from most everyone:

Stay 100%--cheating is not an option (Hi Wuv Et All)

  • Expect stalls
  • Hunger means a whoosh may be in your future
  • Water is important
  • Eat all your food
  • Even the fat

Online friends are just as great as local ones, sometimes better:

One thing I know for sure. I could never have reached my goal without all of you PEEPS! I love you all.

Instead of saying "I can't have that", say "I don't want that"!!! Puts the power in your court!!!

And from all the successful IPers they say, "Just follow the Plan......IT works!!!!!!!!!!!" WOO HOO!!! IT DOES!!!

I've learned that the program works if you follow it and not to panic over a very small loss.

I've learned so much that i could never list it all. People have mentioned lots of wonderful things, but I'll add on TOM and how it screws with weight loss and how IP can mess it up some.

Love all the advice and support here! Such wise and kind people here. Such great advice. Thanks to everyone!
