Good morning Augusters! WI 9, just finished 8 weeks, down a total of 26.2 lbs! Unbelieveable! I still struggle with hunger but boy, can't argue that IP works!! My jeans that I've been hanging on to for 10+ years still don't fit around the middle - guess that's a combo of getting older and fast weight loss. thanks to all for your support, it's made such a difference! Happy weekend.

Thanks slownsteady and Schenectady.
I do think this forum provides so much help and support. It's nice to share our successes and the bumps in the road. It's a journey.

12 weeks on a weight loss plan. No cheating. Wow.

Sorry to be so "yay me", I'm just on a little IP high today.

Have a great weekend all. You have the power... IP POWER

Congrats! Yay, you! And, in turn, this inspires me. Keep it up!

So 8 lbs down this week and back to clinic weigh ins on Monday (and I'm putting the darn home scale away for GOOD!). Wish my clinic weigh in would show 8 lbs down from the last time I weighed in, but alas, I'll be happy with the 1 that it will (hopefully) show! Just being back in control feels soooooo good!

Yes, it does. Congrats, keep up the good work.

Never, ever apologize for being proud of yourself.
My DH tells me frequently: If it were easy, everyone would do it.

To survive through everything life throws at us and STAY on plan, no matter what, takes A LOT of perseverance.

Yay you!!!!

So I started a two days before August 1st, but I horned my way into the August group. (I'm not sure there even was a July group?) I just couldn't be happier! I am a bit over 3 months into the IP diet ... I have had no cheats, I lost 63 pounds, and my waistline has sucked in 10.5 inches. I feel amazing! Just one little tiny plateau in the low 270's, otherwise my losses have been pretty much straight down.

I am wishing everyone in this thread and on this board continued success and insanely great willpower to stick with it! YOU CAN DO IT!
(I am blowing a bit of dieting willpower fairy dust now.)

Hope everyone is enjoying what's left of the weekend!
I had a big closet purge today, which felt great. I had done some closet shopping previously but hadn't yet gotten rid of some of the bigger sizes. I've been wondering why I was holding on to them - I definitely don't plan on going back down that road again! I don't want to keep those things as a crutch in case I do - better for me to have the attitude that I will only keep getting smaller from here. So now I have a bag of sized XLs, 16s, and 18s destined for goodwill, and a closet full of only size 12s (which don't fit yet but will soon!) and 14s. I feel lighter already just having those other things out of there!

congrats Kelliemomo3! Isn't it wonderful to get a little happy surprising scale bump now and then? Yay!:carrot:

Avalon you are amazing. And inspiring.

Good morning all: happy Monday!

Thank you for all the congrats on my weigh-in. I am still smiling. Trying to save all that positive energy up for the weigh-ins that annoy me :) happy and grateful for the progress. (And grateful for you all too)

Wishing you all IP POWER for a great week!

slownsteady 11-11-2013 09:13 AM

ecd, avalon, kelli.......incredible continued losses, great job! :carrot:

Later today I will have my first weigh-in since the beginning of October, at which time I left for vacation for 3 weeks (100% OP during), then returned and had a 1 week "lapse" followed by last week getting back on track. So, we'll see where I "officially" am today after 5 weeks without a weigh-in - I really have no idea as I refuse to get back on the scale at home - which was part of my undoing when I got back from vacation. I think I am at least back to where I was at my last weigh-in, but hoping to be at least a pound or two down from there. I hate that I've virtually lost a whole month of time by 1 week of messing up, but what is past, is past, and I can only go forward from here!

Have a great Monday everyone!! I'll update my ticker later today. Wish me luck! :)

schenectady 11-11-2013 10:59 AM

I am there with you, slownsteady, although I am still working to make it back to where I was before I 'detoured'. Five more to go which I hope disappear this week.

Struggling still to get my mind back where I need it but started the day bright and early, up and cleaning, keeping busy.

slownsteady 11-11-2013 09:22 PM

Yay!!!! :carrot::carrot::carrot:

Down 5 LBS at my weigh in today!! Some might think that's not so exciting since my last weigh in was 5 weeks ago :), but I am taking it as a MAJOR victory because I had a MAJOR (week long) slip up a couple of weeks ago, got back to 100% last week, and now I'm back on track and LOSING again!

AND, I'm just 1.5 lbs from being in the 80's! Looking forward to that. This provided a MUCH needed boost to my confidence, AND determination!

Avalon1957 11-11-2013 09:26 PM

great news slownsteady ... keep pushing
