Unhappy My Ideal Protien Struggle

I was doing so good! I am a 36 year-old Mom of Three. I Started the Ideal Protien Diet the middle of october weighing 158 lbs, this was to big for my 5'5 frame. I got down to 139lbs by Thanksgiving. I am so Mad at myself for losing control. I weighed myself this morning and I was 150lbs!!!!! I need some encouragement. I want lose this weight and learn how to keep it off. I don"t even want to go weigh in and have my coach so disappointed in me

Don't beat yourself up. Life, including the quest for a healthy lifestyle, is a journey not a destination Look at this as a fabulous learning opportunity. Ask yourself: What happened and how will I prevent a repeat in the future? Even when you get to your goal, you will still have to work at maintenance. Use this time to come up with your game plan.

My gameplan: I give myself a 3 pound leeway. I weigh myself every morning and if I am at my 3 pound limit, I go back to phase 1 until I am back to my happy weight. This usually takes 1-2 days. I also stick to a moderate carb diet, good amounts of protein and varying levels of cheats on most weekends.

So, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get back on that IP horse!

I hope you have noticed the IP forum in the low carb area. There will be tons of support to be find there!

I totally understand how you feel. I was down to 235 but gained back up to 247 over the holidays. We can both get back on the wagon chica!
