I did stall for four days, stuck at 230. It may have been because I'd had tomatoes and shrimp, or maybe I was at a previous set point of some kind -- but I did do an apple day yesterday and it worked. So today I was down to 228.
Tomorrow I'll see if that stays off or was a fluke.
Have read that apple days are all about water and that they aren't recommended. I didn't find that info until after I'd done it (and done it wrong!) so was relieved to have lost. My naturopath
I'm a foodie, even when it comes to teas! Here are some teas I think are really helpful (at least they are for me). I've always used these, but it's great that I can continue to use them while on protocol. Just thought I'd share them. Stacy's Tea List
Numi Chocolate Pu'er Tea (Good with Stevia and Cinnamon)
Numi Broccoli Cilantro Savory Tea
Numi Tomato Mint Savory Tea
Numi Beet Cabbage Tea
Numi Aged Earl Grey

I've been out of touch for awhile as Iíve been traveling. I finished P2 with a total loss of 17lbs. It wasnít my goal, but Iíll take it. I just got back from a hard partying weekend in Miami. I am up two lbs from my ldw, so I will be doing a correction day tomorrow. I think I'm going to do the FFF correction day. I still have to get to the grocery store for the basics. Iíve been eating clean and enjoying lotion everywhere! Iíll get back to posting regularly this weekend. Iím starting a homeopathic

I think I'm having withdrawl symptoms from HCG. Checked online for info. Nothing so far.
1. A bit depressed (no reason and no history of depression)
2. Fatigue (instead of the energy I had on HCG)
3. Sore muscles. As in "someone took a jackhammer to my insides while I was sleeping".
4. Stomach stress with slight naseau

R2Relaunch D1: 218 - I did a mini load day
What a good decision! I knew I had forgotten to take HCG for three days and knew I needed to reload, so I semi-loaded. I had only 4 meals,
It's been a while since my last blog! Summer life is picking up (and so are the temperatures, ugh) and DH and I have been busier than usual. I've had the opportunity to reach out to some of my church friends about the HCG Protocol and direct them to this site--I'm very excited and I hope they will join the rest of us losers-who-are-really-winners.
P3 has been going well for me; I have stayed within the 2-pound limit, though I'm still figuring out what foods I'm sensitive to (and

THIS IS THE 3RD TIME I AM DOING THIS (not back to back)! I just wanted to say with each round I have learned some things the hard way ...
the first round I didn't go through with p3 meant to but just somehow went back to eating and gained almost all of it back. I did another round and although I stuck it out for 30 days I sure didn't follow everything I should have like wearing gloves, when doing dishes, no I cheated with the many occasional drops of creamer in my coffee and I didn't
