So, this P2 is still a lot better health-wise than round one, and I'm grateful for that. I'm even able to do some exercise.
Losses have slowed way down. In fact, I'm mired in a very frustrating stall.
I've been 158 lbs for a week now, hovering 8 lbs above my round 2 goal, only 6.5 lbs into VFT. Just... stuck.
Things I have tried (none of these are strict protocol):
1. Three days of higher protein
2. A mini steak day
3. Currently on

2nd round isn't any easier. I want some dang Cherios!
Weigh-in following fage/steak day: 118.5lbs. Phew...made it back into range. I think my body likes 118 ish, so I am totally content here. I am learning I don't want to push my limits with new foods, but I should be more willing to up my calories with healthy oils/butter, and fattier cuts of meat. I am okay with keeping things simple, I mostly would like to add almonds in order to increase my calories in a healthy, convenient way. Think I will wait out and let my weight settle before I try something
Okay, I'm in Round 2, P2 now, but I realized I never actually posted about how well I ended up stabilizing after my first round. I know a lot of people in Round 1 P2 freak out (I did too!!!) about whether or not they will be able to stabilize, so I hope this post will help a few maybe.
I struggled to stabilize during the first 2-3 weeks of P3. It seemed like no matter what I did or how *clean* I ate my weight would fluctuate and I would have to do a Correction Day (Steak or Fage).

Today is P4 D3 and I haven't eaten any starches because i've been out of range the past two days. This I attributed to not having any bm's for 3 days. Yesterday I was 3.2 above ldw and I decided to forego the modified steak day, and just eat like normal P3. I finally had bm's yesterday and this morning I''m only 0.8 above ldw so i'm going to add cous cous with my salmon today and i'll take it from there. Depending on how that goes I might be adventurous enough to try my fave multi grain tortilla
I dont think I could do this if I had to work a real job. Next weeks going to be a challenge on vacation. *We are doing 1 day Alamo/Riverwalk, 2 days Sea World 1 day Fiesta Texas 2 Days Schlitterbaun. *Which all equals crappy food choices. *
No change today. I'm still .4 below ldw. *
196.5.....(+.5) So I ate out twice yesterday. I had a steak, broccoli, and a small salad with ranch for lunch. And here is what got me.....went to mexican for dinner and had the steak fajitas with sour cream for dinner. The spices in the meat always make me gain. Yesterday I did not eat until I was stuffed, and I dipped my fork in the ranch instead of smothering my salad in it. I only ate when I was hungry and I cut out snacking for the time being. I actually feel smaller today, even though
The same is good at this stage of the game. Still holding at 39! I really want to lose 3 more before I stop taking the drops but my body doesnít want to let them go! I tried on 2 pair of size 12 jeans this morning. Both were tight, one I couldnít button and the other squeezed my belly fat. But on a positive note I am in a skirt that I havenít worn in a long time. The jeans just reminded me that I still have work to do! So I hope to be in those after my next round. I know this is a life style
I've started a second, shorter (28 days) round to hopefully take me down another 10-15 lbs.
I've been able to maintain my weight around 173 without much effort after the first round (though my lowest # was 170)
After Feasting (on ice cream) for two days i'm at 175.
Need to go shopping and do a better job of being creative with recipes for this round.
Happy Summer everyone!
