  1. Question About Drop Expiration Date

    So I'm still chugging along...should be in P4 now. I pretty much eat P3 and every now and then slip in half an english muffin or some carb-smart ice cream. Little carb treats here and there. Still eating bunless burgers and dogs, no wraps, no crackers. Scared to try them! I've been hovering between 163-165...my LDW was 160.5, so I'm over the 2 pounds. But instead of fretting I've just been eating healthy and working out. I'm hoping that I may actually be in transition from lifting weights ...

  4. Phase 3, Day 24-25

    Day 24 - Wednesday, June 8, 2011 - 159.6lbs

    +0.4lbs

    Up again today...geez. I'm stepping into phase 4 land for the day because we have a staff "retreat" aka four hour meeting that we are being fed breakfast and lunch at. So today, for breakfast, I had a small muffin, fruit, and my regular iced coffee from home. At lunch, I ordered a tuna sandwich on a croissant with a fruit cup (that I actually didn't eat) and a chocolate chip cookie (that I only ate half of). ...

  5. INCREDIBLE P3 - Day 4. Pigging out = losing weight :/

    I didn't realize how difficult it would be to go from 500 calories to 1500 calories virtually over night. Yesterday seemed very discouraging, actually, that I would have to eat 1500 calories in order to lose weight when I wasn't remotely hungry. The fact is, I have to get to the grocery store and buy some high calorie/no carb items, eat a bigger breakfast, and spread out my calories over the course of the day.

    Last night, I had only eaten 800 calories at about 6:00 p.m., and hit ...

  6. Losing Great again! :)

    So since I have been back from Vegas I have been losing very fast. I gained 5.5 and have lost it all so far. yay
    It has been over a month since I lost so quick, I wonder if the PI restarted my system. I also mixed some new solution which is fresh.

    Whatever I am doing is working, so i am happy. I also have the flu, so maybe that is helping too, lol.

  7. PH3 Day18

    Weigh-In: Up a bit, around 119lbs. Really not sure what my body wants now. I tried what was suggested: no fruits, no diary, no eggs, more protein, more fat....and a gain? I'm going to go back to what I was doing before and feeling great: big salads with veggies and meat, fage with berries, protein shakes and iced chai tea w/cream. I was stable when I had that......I'm tired of the scale. I'm getting used to the fact that I may just stabilize at the higher end of my range, or a little bit out. But ...

  8. Captains Log Stardate: 05020.1004

    Captains Log:
    Stardate: 05020.1004

    I wish i were more verbose. It is a childhood failing. I understood Gandalf so well. When your peers have no idea why you are quoting the Bible or even worse Robert Heinlein at the age of 8 it tends to isolate you. By teen years no one in my age group understood me. I kept waiting for people to catch up, but i have to acknowlegde that it will never happen. Perhaps if i had been able to attend college during my "college years" then ...

  9. Keeping my mouth shut? Yeah, that's not really me. . .

    Starting VLCD4

    Had a 2lb loss yesterday, so I know that I am officially losing real weight again after the crazy first couple of days. So awesome, and the best part is knowing I'm 15lbs from no longer being considered overweight. That is so huge to me, and I don't think I would have learned half as much about my body or this protocol if it wasn't for this forum.

    Sadly, I am becoming increasingly frustrated by something that I see here. The forum locked a thread in the ...

  10. i never thought i would be a blogger

    So i decided to start a blog to keep track of what i'm eating and all the yummy recipes i'm coming up with while in p3 and beyond. My first nine days of p3 i was on vacation and didn't keep very good track, but stayed on track for the most part. I had a few indulgences as i was visiting my hometown and there are some wonderful things up there that i just can't get in florida or at least they pale in comparison. Funny enough all the the thongs i used to love don't taste as good as they used to, like ...
