So far so good.

I had lost 20 pounds before so started and was not budging before this, so I am super happy.

I'm baaaack! The holidays were brutal and I packed on some weight (about 6-8lb, and I had already phased off 7lb above goal). My clothes that fit so well are starting to feel tight so thought I would "reboot" this month strict Phase 1 for February. I'm hitting it back to Phase 1 tomorrow (2/1/2020) with a few extra packets since I'm still working out (but plan on cutting back) and really love how I feel after exercising (I know it's not for weight loss, as I was working out this whole time but the holiday EATING and DRINKING got out of control).
I figured February is the shortest month of the year! We are hosting a Superbowl party on Sunday, but I have my mindset pretty solid. I'm not going to a clinic, as I still have a TON of packets that one of my friends keeps giving me! And I cleaned out my IP clinic of their Raspberry Chocolate Bars before I left (they had ~10 boxes expiring and I got them 1/2 off). I figured I could do my own WI at home and report here for my accountability!
I saw that there was a recent commenter on the threads, looked like she was looking to push her recipe page, but they aren't IP compliant - I tried to make not of those recipes not compliant so that any IP newbies who might see it wouldn't be confused.

So I just read that IP has changed up their Phases 1, 2 & 3. Phase 1 ha some small changes including clear guidelines on 'extras" and some new additions to the vegetables, including rapini and spaghetti squash.
Phase 2 now called "Stabilization" lasts for x8 weeks (depending on your weight loss). We will guide you with menu planning and customize proteins, fats and carbs that will optimize weight maintenance. Phase 3 now called "Maintenance" is 12 months of supporting you to keep your weight off. Phase 1 is pretty much the same, I found a sheet for that. I cannot find sheets for the new Phase 2 & Phase 3. Anybody else know of these, or where we can get a copy? Thanks!!

I am planning to start this weekend. I did IP, using alternative products, about 3 years ago. I lost weight pretty easily, but have slowly been regaining. Where did you find the new phase 1 info? I am excited to hear about the addition of spaghetti squash!

I am 39, 5'2",180 lb, with a goal weight of 145 lb.

Ideal Weight Loss Clinic - although I see that they have now blocked out the top section of it. Was the same anyway . . .

hey everyone! I first logged onto this site in 2010, and in 6 mths without purchasing IP product, but following the chart and using the 'allowed proteins' on the list, lost 60 lbs!! I was never happier........ I kept that off for over 2 years.......... then you get lazy ( speaking for myself ONLY) and all but 5 lbs came back on............ slowly but surely
Now 10 yrs later, even though I am heavier, I have gained the strength and ditched my partner of 22 yrs and thus freeing myself from an emotionally abusive relationship. Yay me hahahha, that was summer 2018.

Now, with an AMAZING tender, patient and SANE man in my life who has helped me heal and find myself again, I am ready to tackle this last hurdle.

I initially tried keto starting on Jan 13 and dropped 6.5 in a month, BUT I have a problem trying to accept the HIGH fat way of eating......... so really? The only change I need to make now, is dropping dairy as I am already into ketosis.

I'm excited to be back on this forum, and make use of all the information that is here.

question: remind me, is there calorie counting? or only watch for 20 carbs and under ?

have a wonderful day everyone
