  1. The numbers are in (R1P2VLCD25): LDW weights and measurements...pounds and inches (:

    It's such a let down to go drastic and accomplish aaaalmost as much as I wanted to. Like getting a B+ when I was aiming for an "A"! Mustn't forget that I lost 15 completely on my own without HCG help from January 2010 - May 2011. With a broken DH and a very busy household.

    So, here they are. I am a previously *boney* 5'07''.

    Starting weights and measurements in May 2011:

    Pounds (post-loading): 164
    Arms - 11 1/2 inches each

  2. Neutropenia Interruption



    A health challenge has entered my life.
    I have neutropenia, an alarmingly low white blood count of 2.0 (neutrophil, ANC=0.9), that my endocrinoligist says could definitely be from dieting.

    On Wednesday, June 8, I see a hematologist.
    In the meantime, I am under doctor's orders to eat a "normal" diet especially including carbohydrates. So, I am eating "good" carbs (primarily the starchy vegetables we are supposed to avoid in P3 +

  3. LDW day came unexpectedly.

    So. Last night I told myself I would go a few more days on HCG. Then I left my "meds" in the car at my mom's house. So apparently, last night was my Last Day. Going to weigh and measure myself now for LDW and record. Phase 3 will begin on Monday at 4 p.m. Just trying to get excited about it. I feel hazy and foggy - I think I was averaging 350 calories the last few days and probably didn't drink all of my water. It's possible I'll do a Round 2 after the summer, but for now, it's ...

  4. P3 Day 13 Settling in nicely to +2 ldw

    I am finally feeling like I am settling into my 118 pounds. It is a good feeling to feel like there is some control over P3. The introducing new things into one's diet can be just a bit stressful. Now that I pretty much have brought everything in, it is easier on my nerves to eat during the day and plan to go out with friends.

    Menu for yesterday:
    Breakfast- 1 protein pancake with tea
    Snack - orange slices, nuts, coffee with cream
    Lunch - ground beef with sauted ...

  5. Big fat tummy = crap weight loss for the week?

    I'm still having the tummy troubles this week. Feel gross. I'm sitting here looking at my distended abdomen sticking out right now. YUCK! Even though my pants are starting to fall off, with my stomach the way it is, it makes me feel like I haven't lost anything at all. My loss for this week is only 2 lbs. What a dissapointment. It makes me so upset. I had a goal of 20 lbs for Round 2 and now it looks like there's no way I'm going to be able to reach that, especially if this stomach thing ...

  6. Enjoying some tea .. vlcd day 1

    Got up around 9:30 .. it's 12:30 now and haven't had anything to eat yet, just haven't been hungry.

    I'm enjoying a tea at the moment with the one allowable teaspoon of Milk, going to go to the grocery store and buy some different teas cause I'm not a huge fan of regular tea by itself, and I'm going to look for some flavored Stevia.

    I'm really on the fence with broccoli right now, it's not on the protocol but a lot of people have been eating it with success and I love ...

  7. Sliding on into P3

    I was having a hard time stabilizing the last time I attempted P3, so I went back and did 16 more days of P2. I dropped another five pounds in that 16 days. Seems my little old self wanted to stabilize at this weight. I'd still like to drop another 5 pounds, but perhaps do it without hcg. I'm just taking one day at a time. I'm 1.2 pounds above the LDW and have not really been measuring or obsessing about portions or calories this time. I did jump up to 2.2 above the third day of P3, but did not ...

  8. P3D17...Over the top(LDW) SOB steak day

    Super annoyed...ok "yes i did eat over 2000 cals(including wine and a mug cake)" so i should have expected to gain(based on my own predictions and analysis) AND I DID. BUT what is annoying is trying to figure out...the effects of TOM rather than blaming it on foods.

    I have NEVER had this much trouble with TOM. I feel really in TUNE with it and notice every change, bloat, water retention etc.

    164.2 that is .2 ABOVE LDW!!! so after 17 days of P3 it is time ...

  9. Fruit... don't leave home without it.

    I've been on the fence about whether or not a good low carb diet can or should include fruit. Fruit has a lot of carbs, in the form of fructose, and there's so much literature on the dangers of fructose, especially the high corn syrup variety which is added to so many foods today. AND HFCS is bad, very bad. But, it's not added to the "natural" way that fructose is found, in a whole piece of fruit. Bound up in the healthy fibers, that fructose delivers sweetness without all the bad side ...
