Default Newbie! Started IP 12/4/17

I am new to both 3FC and IP.
I started on 12/4, with a goal of losing 30 lbs. I'm only into the 2nd week, but struggling as I dislike much of the food, and my "coach" is, to say the least, not helpful.
I have 2 young children, and am finding it difficult to find time to prep meals. On weekends, I find myself hangry around lunchtime. During the week, I'm at work, so it's not too bad. Any tips on surviving the weekends?
I'm also feeling discouraged as my jeans feel tight again today, but I haven't cheated. My coach is impossible to reach, and isn't very supportive when I do see her. Looking for any encouragement and stories of those that have been through this!

Welcome Rzimm05!

I also started IP on 12/4 and have 2 children (10 and 8) and a BF I associate junk food with. When he and I are together, there are burgers, pizza, Chinese food and drinks. Last week was rough but, I have lost weight. I am an obsessive planner and have a rotating month of meals for the evenings I have my children. I found success by eating closely to what they were. I made IP friendly meatballs and steamed veggies for me and my children had non-IP friendly meatballs and spaghetti. It is a process for sure.

You can do it! You started the plan for a reason, remember that reason! Mine is to be healthier and more active with my kiddos.
