Surgery Break
Tuesday, March 18, 2014      1 comments

I have some minor surgery next week. I made a decision a few weeks ago that around this time I would give myself a break and not worry about my weightloss goals. I'm still sticking with my ideal protein protocol, I'm just not weighing in at ho... Read more
Wedding prep
Monday, March 10, 2014      4 comments

I mentioned to a friend that my wedding dress is very very tight. She said "were you wearing your spanx when you tried it on?" Spanx? I'd never heard of them. Apparently this is magical underwear that I need to get. ... Read more
Wedding dress - uh oh
Wednesday, March 05, 2014      5 comments

My wedding dress arrived yesterday! It was made just for me based on measurements of myself at my current weight. I thought that was wise because it has a sash to cinch in the waist in case I get to my goal or below. well... it is ti... Read more
Ring re-sizing

My engagement ring was so big that it fell off my hand in January. I had it sized and sent in to be made smaller. I just got it back and now it is too small!!! They must have written down the wrong size. I remember that the sizing thing fit p... Read more

Tuesday, February 18, 2014      0 comments

My home scale says 138 lbs!!!! The clinic scale is always 2 lbs more than my home scale. I don't ever want to see my weight start with 14# again. I can live with 13#, but don't want to get up to or above the 140s again. My average weig... Read more

About 3 1/2 months spent on ideal protein, 30 pounds lighter. Home scale says 146.6 lbs. So far after those first few weeks IP has been pretty easy to follow. I have some fatigue that I think is due to the lack of sunlight in my part of ... Read more

A New Year! Over the holidays according to my scale at home I have lost three pounds. That is definitely better than most people's gain of ten. I had a set back when I went home to my parents 50th anniversary. It was constant thing ... Read more
Ideal Protein Pasta
Sunday, December 22, 2013      0 comments

I ate pasta and still lost weight! Don't worry it was the IP pasta. Unbelievably it is no different on the diet than having one of the shakes. I had it with olive oil, salt, pepper and mixed with cooked spinach. So delicious and filling. Unre... Read more

Last two weigh ins have been 2 pounds down, no inches lost. Consistent. So I'm losing weight from other areas than those they measure with a measuring tape I guess. Last night was the work Christmas party. I did good. Drank only wate... Read more

I made it to the 150's!!! 159.0 at yesterday's weigh in and a bit off my waist. I'm so thrilled. IP works so nothing is going to make me stray from this path. Total loss in 8 weeks is 18 pounds, so that is a bit over an average of 2 p... Read more

Weigh in result last weekend - down one pound compared to my home weigh in the week before. Down four pounds (I think) compared to my last weigh in at the clinic three weeks ago. No inches lost in past three weeks, but probably because it is my... Read more

Into my second month on phase 1 of ideal protein. Everything is quite easy. I find my food to be yummy and I'm only hungry when it is close to mealtime. Of anything I miss it is fruit not junk food. However I know fruit will be re-introduced a... Read more
Leaving for another and last "road trip"
Thursday, October 31, 2013      3 comments

This time I will fly on the way to the city. The five hour drive is only a one hour flight. Then, I return home with my fiance in his car. This is an unusual drive. For one hour of it there are no radio signals and cell phones don't wo... Read more
Finished month 1 on Ideal Protein
Tuesday, October 29, 2013      5 comments

I started a month ago! 11 pounds down! I think I would have done better without the road trip, but that is life. It isn't an easy journey. I will probably be on phase 1 for another four months. I don't mind. I like the packets. 11 pound... Read more
