What I learned from LizRR
 
Liz taught me a great lesson. Before, I would have said you needed to be 100 pounds (model waif like) to be a size 2 when you are 5foot 6inches tall. Liz is a size 2 at 145 pounds! And looks stunning.

Don't rely on WEIGHT numbers - while they are a metric, everything else plays a much bigger role. And, models don't have anything on us! We can be a size 2 if we want, and enjoy food much more!

Thanks Liz.

Ahhhhh...{tear}

Momto2cs: dont exercise expecting weight loss, exercise for fitness. Dont be surprised when your losses stall after working out.

Great thread but in danger of page 2. Already!

Advice from everyone: water, water, water and always know where the closest bathroom is.

I've learned to "pull on my big girl panties" and stop whining or you get some "tough wuv" ;) (Note...not that it was ME whining... hee hee)

Fishette 09-21-2012 10:50 PM

Just say, "No, thanks, I'm trying to quit ____ (fill in the blank with whatever the nice person is trying to get you to eat)."

rainbow and greeniris will hunt me down if I quit.

IP peeps are as nice in person as they are online (enjoyed dinner and conversation with greeniris a few months ago)

Lizzr has turned out to be almost the chef that rainbow is (can't wait for phase 3 breakfasts)

I've been lurking here for the past week and I've already learned a lot from many of the posts. Certainly more than I'm learning from my weight loss coach!

Lesson from Ishbel: Enjoy my vacation, but as soon as those airplane wheels touch down in Austin I'm back to phase 1.

Lesson from Rainbow: Anything is possible, just do it with love, grace, style and support. Also that you can truly be creative in the kitchen with just about any IP food packet.

Lesson from Capecodmomma: Never take these scales too seriously.

Lesson from all of those who have been on 3FC IP board over the many months I have been here: That people on message boards really can be loving, respectful and truly supportive of each other.

greeniris 09-22-2012 08:28 AM

Oh wow...where to start? I can't recall who said what first, but these are some of the things I learned...drink a glass of water when you feel hungry;
what to look for on labels when looking into alternatives; using packets to make something else; what to do with some of the weird veggies I'm eating (& enjoying!) now; not to panic when the scale doesn't cooperate; how important it is to stay 100% OP.
and from Dana - the correct way to do boot camp

rcrochet 09-22-2012 08:42 AM

woweee! I don't think I could list all that I've learned here in the last 3 1/2 months since I started IP. Definitely Lizz and Rainbow taught me to think outside of the box on food possibilities/creative cooking. Everyone here has taught me that I'm not the only one with food/weight issues and it's nice to not be in this alone. The motivation and support I've gotten here is a huge part of any success I've had.. please everyone, hug yourselves for me. Thank you!!

The whoosh fairy is real. You just have to be patient and while you are waiting, drink lots of water.
