I figured I would post a little about myself...for being 32 I feel like learning how to navigate this forum isn't very easy! I don't see my profile pic displayed and it is very irritating lol.

Anyway, I live in Erie, PA and work for a textbook company designing math books. I love animals...smooshy faced especially. I have been married 3 years, my husband has a 32 inch waste and can eat whatever he wants, but I wouldn't trade him for the world. We got married in Las Vegas at the Bellagio, we do love Vegas! We have been trying to conceive for 3 years, and hoping it happens soon. Though the doctor thinks my weight isn't the issue, it will only help.

I posted on a thread earlier but Target has a $10 off $30 in the nutrition section in their sunday flyer and online. I went and got some of the RTD EAS drinks and pure protein bars so that I could swap a few here and there. (Also because I tossed 3 things I hated in my start up bag). I have been sleeping like a log! I know I am finally in ketosis, and ketostix i bought tonight confirmed. Yay!

Sarah~ I see Annie helped you with your avatar (profile pic) :)

Thanks so much for the heads up on the sale Target is having. I need to go pick up some RTD's... so convenient when at work. Yay for being in Ketosis...whoop whoop :dancer:

Hey Sarah! I had the same problem with my pic at first. Instead of it being your profile pic, it's actually the "avatar" you need. When you upload an avatar, it will show next to your posts. :D


Thanks! Much better!

You might be better off posting this question in the Daily Chat or Alternatives That Will Work on P1 thread where some of the veterans will see it and check it out for you. So many people who have done really well with alternatives hang out there and have all the stats memorized!

Nice me too I new to IP started last tuesday. This is my first week, first weigh in is tommorrow

Hi everyone! I just restarted IP this week. I had great success before - lost 20 lbs but let life and my stress get in the way so now I am back on track. I'm using a mixture of IP foods and the gluten free Evolution products, as well as a couple of the Proti-diet foods. Eventually - if/when I hit a plateau, I plan on staying away from the foods with sucralose in them. I find, with me, that foods with sucralose seemed to affect my weight loss in the past and staying away from them helped. I'm one of those people who likes to work out - especially to relieve stress, but I've also found that I really have to back off otherwise it stalls my weight loss - I think it is hormone thing and because calories are limited - it's too much on the body. Anyways - I am determined to get to maintenance. I just downloaded the Beck Diet so I can listen to it when I'm on the road. A big part of this is emotional/psychological for me so I find the material in the Beck Diet is really helpful. Alright gang - Let's do this! :)

Hi everyone

I am looking to start IP as well but unsure if I need to hit the clinic or just order products that meet the criteria? Anyone have sucess on their own?

Thanks.

I just restarted IP after doing it for 2 months in 2012. I lost 18 lbs and gained it all back. I want to reach my goal weight and stay there! It seems like every year, I lose and gain the same 10-15 lbs. I have fibromyalgia and sometimes when it's really bad, I can't really cook so I make bad food choices. It's a vicious cycle. I feel bad so I eat like crap which makes me feel bad, etc, etc.
My self esteem is at an all time low because I can't fit into any of my clothes. I know I may have not have as much to lose as some of you but believe me, trying to lose 20 lbs is hard!
I'm really grateful that so many of you are posting about alternatives because the IP food is so expensive. I don't like a lot of it anyways because I hate the way fake food tastes.
Anyways, hoping I get the encouragement I need to stick with the plan!
