Gained 600grams this morning....so I did not escape from my indiscretions this past week unscathed! But I am continuing on being on protocol, doing everything I should be.
One other issue....I have a couple of red swollen areas on my belly where I have injected over the last few days. Not itchy but a bit worrying. I put in a question with Grammy, will see if she has any advice. I don't really want to stop injections. I have a lot of stupid allergies, this might be another!
Busy busy day, moving furniture and prepping for the renovations in my studio, kept me too busy to eat! Stayed POP and am hopeful that th scales will be nice in the morning. Today's weigh in showed no change from the weight of the last several days, so still no gain from being "bad" this last week.
Now that I know I have no other temptations in front of me, I seem to be mentally in it again...yay!
And I am definitely bonier... Still have WAY loads of weight to get rid of,
The scales were kind and I had no change in weight again today. The excesses of the last 2 days may still come back to bite me, but for now, I am quite happy just staying the same.
Had a great day, perfectly on protocol! Drank lots of water, and did a fair bit of moving around, getting ready to renovate the studio. There really isn't anything more I could have done better today!
I also have been reading a lot about the benefits of taking pterostilbene, so have ordered some from iherb.
I did the injections for 34 injections. I took a 13 day planned interruption and I am now back on VLCD3. I want to take another interruption on the 21. Which will give me 21 injections before my 2nd planned interruption. I know that you are supposed to have 23 but since I am continuing my round, is it ok to have less than 23? I appreciate everyones help!
Not going to say much about this day, except that I tried to make the best choices, but I ate things I shouldn't have. Not what I should have done, yes, I realize this is a hormone protocol etc etc . The day is done and I am moving on. There are no more parties or temptations for me right until Christmas Day so I am committing to staying as POP as I can til then. I am even considering doing Christmas as a PI and getting back on for another 3 to 4 weeks. That would give me time to get just a bit

Stayed the same today. While in the past I have been able to "cheat" with SF cocoa, it appears I cannot do that this time around. So no more SF cocoa. And I'm almost out of cutie oranges, so I may skip those for a while too as I've been really focusing on those the last couple of days. If I remember correctly, in my 2nd round in 2010, I had issues with citrus, so I'll just skip those too for a few days
The scales say I am th same as yesterday, but my shoulders are bonier, so I know the weight is shifting around a bit.
I've given up the fight against temptations this week. Cream cheese cake and cheesecake both made their way into my mouth today. I did my best to minimize the damage, ate tiny pieces, didn't eat the pastry, but I sure enjoyed them! My choice....yes, it is going to impact my losses, too bad. I have Christmas lunch to go to tomorrow, then that's it....no more temptations. I
Well- I lost quite a bit in 2012 and the weight started creeping back up so in 2014 will be starting another round. Previously I got my patches from intermountainhcg and loved them but they no long sell them for some reason. My cousin bought some off a website called RN's choice - she said they fell off in the shower.
Who else is happy with their patches and where did you buy them? Thanks!!

Up a bit today. Definitely didn't get water in yesterday. In fact, didn't drink much of anything most of the day. So may be retaining water, dunno. Will get all my water in today and see how it goes.
Lunch yesterday was the chicken "tortilla" soup - just flavored broth, veggies, and chicken, and a couple cutie oranges.
Dinner was a burger patty and steamed veggies, some fresh
Finally a decent loss this morning.... Then again, I ate so little yesterday, the scales HAD to be kind! LOL
So I lost 600 grams and feeling good. But then temptation in the form of Christmas foods brought to class by my ladies....oh my... Cheesecake, dips and crackers, cakes, egg sandwiches ( which I normally devour!) ...and I was SOOO good.... Didn't succumb at all! I just pretended that the food was not there, and it mostly worked!
BUT... One of my ladies gave me a gift of homemade
