  3. P3 Day 5

    Hey HCGers! Up .4 lbs. this a.m., but that puts me at still .6 lbs. under LDW. Anyhoo, had a nice meal with my hubby last nite that was almost the same thing. It was broiled chicken with a white wine and butter sauce with melted cheese on top. The only differences were that his sauce had a cornstarch thickener and mine did not. Also, he had a baked potato and I had cauliflower "mashed potatoes".

    Regarding low carb/carb free/sugar free foods...I was surprised to go on the ...
  4. VLCD 19, Look at my Ph3 meal plan PLEASE :)

    Today I have had no drops...I stopped after lunch yesterday. I feel normal, more normal then I have since taking Hccg. My brain is working better, and I'm not as 'dizzy'. I'm not sure why ketosis would stop since I'm still on the same amount of calories/food?, but feel good.

    If any of you have experience in Ph3, would you mind looking over my planned interruption foods! Let me know if you see any mistakes!

    Tues PM:

    taco salad: ground beef, avocado, cheese, ...

  7. My Maintaining in P2 adventures

    So this weekend has been very interesting. Friday for my daughters bday party it snowed/hailed once again. I live in SoCal, born and raised, in the 12 years I've lived in this actual valley, it's snowed a total of maybe 5-6 times. In this year alone it's been 3 times. AND it's NEVER snowed for my daughters bday, always rains, but never this. I have to say I am finally sick of snow and cold. It's ok to visit, not ok to live in. lol

    This morning I weighed in at 130.8. A slight ...

  8. Checking in P3/D4

    So far, so good with P3. I think I *may* have gotten a little too excited and added in some things I shouldn't have in the first couple of days (namely Greek yogurt and almond butter), but I didn't eat a lot of them, and they were so wonderfully delicious! No big jump in the scales. I've fluctuated from 1.5 pounds below my LDW to .6 above my LDW, so that seems okay to me.

    I'm trying to really focus on good fats. Still eating my beloved cocoa crack...added heavy whipping cream the ...
  9. P3 weekends... not so easy. This is taking FOREVER!

    Itís been an interesting weekend!

    I went down to 163Ö went back UP to 164 something (I forget itís on the calendar) back down to 163Ö and back up to 164.8.

    Iíve decided that Iíll just try and stabilize using 163 as my LIW instead of 160. If I go lower or my body tells me I MUST be at 164 or somethingÖ Iíll listen. But for now 163 is my magic number. Thou shalt not go above 165.

    Which brings me to today. Fridays weight gain to 164.something I believe was ...
  10. pain and gain

    Well I have been uncomfortable all weekend. due to the laser surgery. I so hope it comes out good. I have stalled again. Most likely due to the 3 creams I have to put on my stomach every 2 hours. I expected this though. It looks tighter, so that is nice. Not at all sure what the finish product will look like since it is a red honeycombed mess atm. I have my first check up tomorrow. We will see what she has to say. I would say I will have to do it at least one more time. Thing is I will make sure ...
