I have lost 4lbs in the past 4 weeks since restarting in November. Have not been able to stay on my eating plan...let emotions carry me away several times off the plan. Trying to hang in and hope that the great motivation and determination I had last year at this time kicks in...but in the meantime I do not want to be gaining. It's so motivating to see everyones fantastic losses over the past month ! I feel thankful to be moving in the right direction again although not perfect. Just small steps in the right direction is ok with me right now, I'm really struggling but will keep moving forward and hope to do better.

Help oh help, I have great parents but my parents live out of town and now when they come back for a week the majority of time is spent at one siblings house and my family tends to ge the day before they fly back home. There are promises made to my kids and they always get broken...I just got a message that my mother is coming home on the 27 of December for a week. I feel ashamed to say this but it ruined my whole night. I am already freaking out due to the stress that comes with the visiting of my parents. I am trying to find a way to protect my family from the dissapointments that come when my parents come to town. I am finally doing well with my weight, workouts, and self esteem. My sister just had the gastric sleeve procedure done and she has been hard on my daughter and me over our weight for many years. I don;t want to be compared to her, and I don't want to be stressed out over this situation. I am needing help on how to get through this visit of my mother and seeing my sister after her surgery. I know she probably has lost over 60 pounds by now and she wants us all to go out to eat but I don't feel this is a situation that is good for me or my daughter. Help help help....I want to stay OP and not loose my footings in this weightloss battle and change of life I am making for myself.....Suggestions welcome.....

I feel the small steps are what matter they will continue in our life and in time they will help us use food differently. I am also an emotional eater and now is extremely hard but I need to learn that it is usually not worth it to eat something.
I feel this plan and website is so important for us trying to make a new lifestyle change for the future and to enjoy life longer......

Finale, you are doing so great on IP. You are doing this for you and you are taking control of your life. Remember that and don't let anyone bring you off of your true goal. Your sister chose her method of weight loss, and you chose your way to approach it. It's a personal journey for each of us.

On my journey, the only time I've lost weight is when I had a huge crisis in my life that caused me to not eat. It has always involved a man letting me down in a very bad way. This is the first time I have taken control and I am doing this for the right reasons. I feel so empowered.

You are empowered and nobody can take that power away from you unless you give it. Remember that first and foremost, especially over the holidays. As you find new exciting ways to make IP compliant food, you can make a new challenge to learn to eat out and stay OP. Make it a challenge to go out to eat with your family.

we are traveling for Christmas and I have NO IDEA what to do. Haven't traveled on this diet before. We are staying at my (super skinny) sister's house.

I've seen where others mail their IP products to wherever they are travelling. I'm spending the holidays with friends. They are aware and are supportive of my diet and are making lists of veggies and proteins to buy to help me. Maybe you can enlist your sister to help you.

4 degrees here! that's what we call warming up in the north! EAting pancakes for supper! love the cereal recipe. Slept till 1 pm . Good day. I'm on my TOM, no big cravings yet.....I know cheese isn't allowed aloud but I make up parm or cheddar crisps on parchment paper as my quick no carb snack. easy to travel with. hard boiled eggs can travel easily too!
Happy weekend!

Down 14 lbs 11 inches in 6 wks
 
Just want to say hi to all of my November IPers. Ive been very good with no intentional cheats. I did screw up on my 3rd week because I forgot that the maple oatmeal and pancakes are restricted and ate those 3 days and then had a restricted snack after dinner. I only lost .8 that week and I didnt know why till I looked at my journal and realized it. I also think I need to stay away from the brownie. It's higher in carbs and seems to push me out of ketosis. I had 2 weeks I only lost a little over a lb and I think that was why. Weekends have been hard to get my 4 c of veggies and water in cause ive been xmas shopping and gone all day. I do bring a Ip drink and bar with me for lunÁh and snack to keep me from going Op. During the week I'm so good. It frustrates me to think that those 2 days keep my weight loss down. BUT I am doing great in inches. Down. From 12 to a 10 and hopefully will be in my 8s by Xmas. I don't want to buy any till then but I did have to buy 1 pair of black slacks for work since I'm down to 2 pairs of pants that fit me. So keep up the fight and remember; nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. (My mantra)

I want to hit 219 by Friday, I am currently at 221.9....I am staying on the journey and hoping the next couple of days will show me some results.....
I do weigh in tomorrow and want to see that number. I am so goofy about weigh in that I even want to wear shorts because they weigh less than dress pants or jeans...
