Weighted in this morning and down 1.6lbs! That definately make up for some of yesterday. Most importantly that put me below 200 at 199.6!
Yesterday I did everything by the book, ate totally clean, got my water intake and did some moderate exercise.
For the last 4 days I keep going for 191.6 to 192.2 but dont seem to be able to get past that. I am following the protocol, any suggestions? Also I left my HCG sublingual mixture out and it got warm, so I threw it out and made a new batch, was that the right thing to do?
Ok, so I've not been hungry. Skipped my apple a few times for dinner in the last few days. Today I weighed in at 161! flat. Yeah. My first goal is 158.5 so If I can hit that this round, by Last drops Sunday I think, I will be ecstatic. Fingers crossed!
After only losing 0.2 yesterday, I was a bit bummed, but kept on going. I still haven't cheated, which is a miracle for me. With every other diet I've been on, I've been a huge cheater--huge! My kids are selling World's Finest candy bars for their school, so I have 150 chocolate bars in my home. And, well, it's the world's finest chocolate, don't ya know, so it's very tempting. I spent about 10 minutes sniffing one of the milk chocolate bars yesterday. So, so good. I took large inhales and held
Tomorrow I'm going back to P2. I was curious about the foods that made me gain on my first P2 so I created a file with just the foods I ate, the weight of the day, and any notes (constipated, not sleeping, traveling, sick).
Then I took my weight backwards two days to get a better picture of what's happening.
It's not a perfect way to figure it out but it's all I have.
I then color coded what I assumed were the problem foods: eggs, cottage cheese, tomatoes,
The detox bath worked! I awoke this morning to a 2 pound loss! What a fantastic way to start the day!!! Ate my beautifully sweet morning orange and had mustard-chive chicken and the remainder of the lovely coleslaw for lunch and for dinner, asparagus and the most AMAZING and DELICIOUS orange roughy I have literally ever had! I cooked it really simply with some lemon, garlic, basil salt and pepper. I think I actually commented on how good it was with every single bite LOL!! Had a baked apple with
Seems like there are lots of newbies who have just entered p3 or are going to soon. Here is a re-post of some guidelines that I found very helpful with my firstr p3:
P3 Basics and when to add foods:
Here's Some Basics for P3 posted a while back on the boards... I figured they might help you all as much as they're going to help me.
First, find out your calorie limit: Women that means 11 times your current weight, Men 12 times your current weight.

And I planned it. I decided to break out of ketosis for a day (VLCD 22) and since I was going out to eat it was the perfect scenario. My choices were to adjust my HCG dose again or to break out a carb day. My reasoning is this. The longer your body is in ketosis the more it adapts. The longer you stay in ketosis the the diminished hunger feeling starts to leave. So with my increasing hunger I decided to break the ketotic state and consume carbs. For my only meal of the day I ate one ribeye
Eeeeep. Scary stuff. So I woke up bright and early this morning, (early being relative after working from 10am til 2am!), took my drops and then went and lay back in bed for a little while so I wouldn't be tempted to drink or eat anything for the prescribed 15 minutes.
I'm now heating up scalloped potatoes for my breakfast.. my housemate brought them back for me from the bowls club last night. I figure they fit in to loading quite well!
I have a tub of greek yogurt,

i finally decided to make my own. i made the daily log and graph sheets from scratch, but i added several other sheets in case any of you want to use them.
