Got it now.....

This is my journey past P3 and beyond....I had considered doing a blog, earlier to log my food, but seems like I got lazy...

  1. So that's how this works

    I just have to comment on how things are going for me now. Round 2 was such a crock compared to this round. I did the pellets hoping to save a buck and what a bad deal. I was hungry and miserable compared to the way I feel today. Not to mention a bad candida bout made me carb crazy!!!

    So today, I'm my lowest weight since HCG!! No hunger, no cravings, feeling awesome!!!!! I can't stress enough how important dosing is....now, just to stick it out for 16 more shots...trying to ...

  2. Having a hard time stabilizing....try UPPING your calories??

I think that my big mistake, and I see a lot of people doing it, is when the weight is fluctuating so much, we "overcorrect" through steak days and multiple protein days in a row. I think a better approach may be to up the calories, looking for stabilization, then when the weight is stable, do the steak day/protein day. The body understands it's not starving to death so will be more relenting to the extra

  3. A new outlook - R2P2 VLCD8

    So I'm starting to feel a renewed sense of commitment to this lifestyle. For some reason, I've been fighting some mad cravings and have been whining about what I can't eat and how everything looks and smells so good. I've not been hungry though, which is so important. Now, I'm proud of myself for not cheating, handling some pretty tough situations. I think it has something to do with the fact that from now on, I'm losing new weight, and I know I don't have much time to do it. Makes the cheat ...

    My last week of P4 before loading again this weekend for R2. I've found P4 to be almost non-existent, though it's been 5 weeks. The first week was before Christmas, when I was scared to add anything. Then Christmas came and I binged on FUDGE!! Steak day took care of that. Week 3 was New Years Eve wedding in Savannah, GA, including eating out every day, drinking every day, and eating a

  5. Why is 160 so bad....

    I dreamed of this number since January when I started my weight loss journey. Now, I'm there from a low of 157 and I'm upset? Boy, I need to fix my brain!!! I guess what's bugging me is that according to BMI, I'm overweight again. This doesn't seem fair. I'm in P4, but doing mostly P3 eating. I added a banana, grapes, and 5 peanut M n M's....Ugh, I'll get through this, but it just helps to vent!

  6. Welcome to P4, Ms. Farley, Next stop, carbs!!!

    Sometimes I crack myself up....

    Well, I did it. I survived to P4...all this waiting and it's really not that big of a deal. I can't think of ONE thing I'm dying to eat. I mean I get chocolate through cocoa crack and mug cake. I get bread through almond bread and coconut flour english muffins. I get fruit, cheese, yogurt, salad dressing, cheesecake...and soon I'll be trying brownies and cream cheese fudge. Seriously, why would I want to change this..?

  7. Getting used to not losing in P3

    So I'm .6 pounds over my LDW. I know in P3 terms this is great news. Unfortunately, I'm sad I've not stayed below my LDW. I have to chill out and celebrate my success. I've lost 21 pounds and kept if off for 3 weeks. That is awesome and I am proud....I just miss the feeling of losing.

    Oh well, P4 starts Jan 15, so only like 4 weeks to go...then it's on again. Gonna be skinnier than I was in college!!

  8. Going to save my kid's lives, one loaf of bread at a time.....

    This is my last weekend on P3, and I'm OK with that. I went to Culver's tonight with my kids and had coffe while everyone else had frozen custard sundaes. The great thing is they didn't even look good to me....I think something happened to my body and my appetite, where I picture all the gross stuff in food and I don't want it....

    I'm thinking about starting to make a lot of my own foods to get off of the processed foods in stores. I have a horrible habit of buying cheap processed ...

  9. Why things are different now.

    Being what I like call a career dieter, I am shocked at how my outlook has changed on Protocol. Each diet I went on had a start and a stop date or a start and a stop weight. As soon as I get to goal, I'm done, and go right back to my old ways, and "big surprise" I'm fat again. It's funny how when you're a perpetual dieter, your memories of your life begin with "when I was fat that one time, or when I was skinny that one time, or when I was losing, or when I was gaining". ...
