2 days ago was my IP consult, yesterday was my first official day back on IP, and today I had my first physical in 7 years! With the same PCP that started me on my IP journey back in 2012. I moved job sites (just moved back), and the only doctor I had seen since was the OB from having babies (3 years agi!). Did my annual exam, blood work, pap smear, and scheduled my first mammy (I'm 45yo). So I'm feeling pretty good about putting my health first.
I did all my veggie prep work for Wed-Fri on Tue night (after my initial IP visit) - got my broccoli, cauli, yellow squash prep with boiling, roasting, blending, freezing - all in containers for lunch, dinner, & snack - all lined up in the fridge with my packets and supplements parsed out - so No Excuses for LizRR!
I will say, as an "old timer" it's nice to see some of the "freebies" on the new sheet - I remember having to count my spinach and celery as part of my select veggies - more than iceberg lettuce is free now! I am adding a 'free salad' to my routine that I didn't before with a DIY dressing (ACV, mustard, lemon juice, salt). I'm going to just power through these first 2 weeks and see how it goes...the closer I stick to plan the faster it goes!!!!

Default what am I doing wrong ??

I am relatively new to the diet , started in March.........so I have been on the diet for over a month now and I have only lost 5 pounds and 3% body fat. I drink ton of water 72 oz a day, I am taking all the supplements, weighing my dinner protein, 2 cups of veggies with lunch and dinner. I usually have the pancakes or oatmeal for breakfast with black coffee. I have 1 restricted snack a day. I have been getting anywhere from 6000-12000 steps a day weather permitting. So............ why am I not losing weight?
Is it the snacks ?

A few questions, how much do you have to lose? I only ask because typically those with more weight lose it faster from a straight numbers standpoint. Do you have a metabolic/endocrine disorder or hormone imbalance (thyroid/Hashimotos, PCOS, menopause, etc), because that can cause slow losses - but I remember several past IPers who noted this was the only diet that they actually slow/steady lost on. Also, I know some folks would do "IP Boot Camp" if they wanted to jumpstart losses - basically cutting out all restricted and occasional veggies and replacing your 8oz protein with an IP packet. Post up your menu and maybe we can brainstorm.

I had a weekend in San Antonio my first IP week, did "okay" but wasn't able to meal plan 100% - if anything I wasn't able to eat enough. I'm back today, my WI #1 is tomorrow at 4:15pm....we'll see how I do this Round 2!!!! It's been 7 years and a couple more kids - hopeful for some pounds off!!!!

Woo-Hoo!! My WI#1 and down 8.2! I know it's mostly water weight, but still motivating! And we went out of town for Easter weekend, glad that didn't throw me off too much. I'm trying to use the "What Are You Eating" thread to keep me on track with planning.
My coach has expired packets for 50% off so I have been cleaning her out of the unrestricted packets. So expect a lot of broccoli and potato and pineapple-banana packets. I picked up some strawberry-banana RTD ... Trying to come up with a recipe for that to make it more filling.
