Wink New Here!

Hello, my husband and I have our consult on the 18th with a coach to start IP. I'm scared and excited at the same time. We have 2 friends who are currently on IP and have each lost over 50 pounds. I have struggled with my weight for many years and it's been increasingly difficult to lose now that I have two year old toddlers to chase after.

I'm really glad I found this group, it's given me a lot of useful information so far and I know it will be a great resource throughout the diet!

WELCOME to you and your DH!

My husband and I both started IP together last October. He lost about 40-45 lbs and is now in P4 maintenace. I'm still in P1, losing phase. There are about 5-10 other couples that I know of that are also doing IP together here on the 3FC site. There are some nice things about doing it as a team! There is a Mens Thread, so you might suggest your DH check it out!
How nice that you have two friends who are on IP. That will be so helpful when you have those initial questions. Everyone here on this site is more than willing to help out, also. If you have questions (esp something you need a quick response to) the best place to ask is on the Daily Chat Thread - this gets the most readers often throughout the day.
Good Luck to you both! I don't think you'll regret your decision, if anything you'll probably kick yourself for not starting earlier, lol!

Thanks everyone! I am excited to get started though a little overwhelmed at how much info is needed for this diet. The last diet we did I lost 35 pounds and he lost close to 50. That was before the girls were born of course! I have been browsing over the forums for a few days and taking note.

On P1 are you allowed to use the WF dressings and marinades? Which ones taste good? I have been cleaning out my kitchen of things we won't be able to eat and I'm trying to stock up on things we can have so we'll have them when the time comes

to you and your DH!
Yes, you can use the WF dressings and marinades. I personally did not care for the Ranch, but the Thousand Island almost taste like Thousand Island. You will need it for the Big Mac in a Bowl recipe. Some of the others like the Honey Mustard and Raspberry Vin. are really good for marinades. The WF Pancake syrup is great for the pancakes. I have not tried the Chocolate or Strawberry syrup yet, but some have said they use it for some of their drinks blended with ice to make a bigger portion and make it like a treat. Good Luck to you both! Please let us know if you have any questions and keep us posted on your progress.

Welcome - Think of this as a journey instead of a diet. If you work this program right you will have guidance to change you eating habits forever. The four phases really guide you onto the right path. If you also have a good coach, you will have the tools you need.

I am just finishing my 5th week and can say that I feel WONDERFUL!! The board is a great place to learn the ropes. Welcome aboard!!

The best part about this program is there have been very few times that I have felt hungry. I always felt like I was starving on Weight Watchers!
Have a great weekend! Welcome
