140.5 I was really hoping to cross the mark by the time vacation started, but I am still super happy to have hit 140!! I'll take it! Today we start vacation, so a little nervous about how much I will gain back. Keeping my fingers crossed for the best... Continue reading

142.0 Have I really been doing this for two months?! Is a little slow moving, but I will take it. I thought the tater tot/fried rice day would set me back, but hovered around 143 for a bit, and have slowly settled back down over the last several days, and... Continue reading

144.4 Gah! I came into view of 142 on Tuesday (142.8 to be precise), and I thought, just hold on and ride it till weigh in on Friday! But something happened and the exact reverse happened - I lost it! On Wednesday I was crazy hungry and ate an extra... Continue reading

144.6 So, had my coach weigh in yesterday and scale stayed the same. At home I know I am down about half a pound, but that fluctuates so much, I think I am just holding steady. They said it's normal to have a plateua at the 10lb mark as the... Continue reading

So I've already peeked ahead to the Ideal Protein Maintenance phase, just to get some sense of what "post IP" looks like. What's interesting is you're allowed a small piece of toast in the morning. And speaking of toast, I came across this article about "artisinal toast", where people are... Continue reading

Early on, M from work had recommended I get a Magic Bullet. I thought "Really, does it make THAT much of a difference?? I think the shaker cup mixes it up just fine." She insisted, YES, it does, and A, who sits near her, concurred. So, I traipsed off to... Continue reading

145.0 I saw a dip to 144 on Saturday, but I did lapse a bit this weekend. Alamo Drafthouse was the culprint. I had the turkey burger bowl (no bun, make it a salad), but I didn't want to be THAT person, so I didn't say no carrots, dressing on... Continue reading

145.6 Woo hoo, got within sight of a 145 number - yay! Here's the not so yay part: in my bathroom cabinet I had a note with measurements from a year and a half ago, when I probably embarked on some other diet, and wanted to note my starting point.... Continue reading

I know! I can't help it! Dinner was a steak salad bowl with grilled zucchini and roasted cauliflower, with a little Walden Farms Chipotle Ranch. Yum... Continue reading

I've gotten used to the shakes in the morning, but I love me some eggs. I've tried both Ideal Protein omelet packets and they are ok, but have that artificial taste going on. On 3fatchicks, they said 3 egg whites + 1 egg is equivalent to an omelet packet, so... Continue reading

147.6 Again, somewhat holding steady, minor minor decrements (is that the opposite of increments?) It's really quite nutty because my weight will fluctuate 2-4 pounds in a day, and here I am clinging to a 0.2 pound drop. Hey, anything to get you by. I wake up, and get on... Continue reading

For some reason, I LOVE red meat. I know it's probably clogging my arteries, but I will never turn down a steak. This is now my standard meal: small steak, roasted cauliflower and asparagus. Thank goodness I like most of the allowed veggies, or this Ideal Protein diet would be... Continue reading

148.6 Woo hoo, breaking past the 150 mark! So far, so good. Have suffered many temptations, but have held strong! Maybe some mild slippage, i don't even consider it cheating. For example, at a friend's dinner they had kale salad, and I am sure a non-IP approved dressing. But what... Continue reading

150.8 I had my first weigh in on Friday, but at that point was only 4 days in. So, now 6 days in and have lost 4-5 pounds. My coach's scale adds 3 pounds, but otherwise we're calibrated. I was not looking forward to trying vanilla pudding, so tried the... Continue reading

I learned a LOT this weekend! M and A recommended I get a Nutri-Bullet. I was highly skeptical, but they were right. The shakes come out well-blended and frothy, much better than just in the shaker. Survived a paella party on Saturday night. Passed up the lovely vat of sangria,... Continue reading

So, one of the things on this diet is they give you a regimen of pills and vitamins. Holy cow, look at these horkers! I am terrible with pills, not sure how I cam going to get all of these down. I am on Day 5 and have YET to... Continue reading

151.8 Honestly I was not expecting movement every day, so this is a pleasant surprise - we'll see if I can keep the numbers from going up as I head into the weekend. Have a paella party, will be intersting to see how I navigate that. Today I have my... Continue reading

Day 3 weigh-in: 152.8 So, starting to see some movement, not bad, although I know most is water weight. Didn't get to ANY pills on Day 2 (oops), but did pretty good on the IP food. Got to half the pills on Day 3; I'll get there. Quick run-down: Omelet... Continue reading

154.5 Did not prepare the night before - bad idea. Started the morning, and realized I needed to have an IP food, didn't feel like a shake, and who the heck wants mushroom soup for breakfast?! Ended up compromising with a hot tea with vanilla shake in it. Realized I... Continue reading

There used to be vending machines near my desk, and they are strategically located in recurring "snack" areas. So, the ones near my desk used to be about 30 paces and my wireless headset could JUST squeak by and I could grab something while I was on a conference call.... Continue reading

couldn't find control panel, so had to go back to the old version, on the whole it was ok. my biggest beef is everything is "bigger", and takes up more space (fonts, spacing, e.g. posts are listed with three lines of info, instead of one), so it makes for more scrolling.
