No more blue cheese for me, sadly. I decided to find out what caused my reaction to it. Last summer I had allergy testing done bc I was severe allergies when I was pregnant with my youngest.
Turns out I'm allergic to many things, cats, chinese elm trees and penicillium. I have a cat, I have the trees and guess what, blue cheese has that penicillium. Ugh! I love blue cheese. Not all have it in large amounts but the one I had yesterday does thus why I had such a reaction to it.
Well I feel like total crap today. This evening my mother and I sat down to watch ABC News with Diane Sawyer and to my surprise there was a segment on the HCG diet. Once again more people bashing it saying its unsafe and dangerous, using opinions in place of real medical facts. Any-whoo, my mother (who doesn't know that I am going to do the diet, let alone starting my first TOMORROW) made a few scoffs and comments that let me know that she didn't approve. However, knowing my moms views on what it
So here's the thing. I said I was going to do 23 days, but I wanted to keep going. Then, I said I would do 30 days, but as that time neared, I decided I would go 40. However, today, I'm trying to start TOM. In the past few days I've also been rather weak and tired. This TOM for me is usually a minimum of 10 days, so that would mean I would be potentially dealing with a TOM-induced stall for the remainder of my P2.
Here's where I want your input please. Should I soldier through the
Well, it worked! I'm down below my stopping weight and I'll never ever be bad again. Nope. Not me. You read it here.
Except for my cat running off with the larger of my two small steaks, my steak day was a breeze. I woke up this morning with over 2 pounds gone. Maybe 3 even, as I was too depressed to write down my weight from the day before.
The problem I see now is getting my metabolism up. I can survive on very little which is why P2 was so easy for me. Yesterday
Scale stayed the same today – been having a flare-up of my gum disease – not pleasant, runs in my family – so I haven’t been able to eat much the last few days. Feeling better right now, thanks to some Vicodin I had left over from my gallbladder surgery. I go back to the doctor tomorrow, hope he will lift my restrictions so I can go back to work on Monday. I’ve been typing all day yesterday and today, my transcription client kinda dumped on me over the weekend, but tomorrow I will have the day
Hey all Gl, This was just posted on another thread and I think we can all use this as helpful information: with your P3's. found this in another P3 thread posted by leslie. Hope it helps someone here
The only thing I'm not sure about is the calorie limit... 11x my weight would put me over 2600 calories and I'm just not going there. I shoot for 1500 or so.
Find out your calorie limit.

P4 is going well. I am consistantly about .8 over LDW. I would like to be lower as I was staying about 1.6 below during P3, but that is life. My fiance is continuing to do well he has been able to maintain about 3lbs under LDW.
I am enjoying lots of yummy food and finally went out and purchased Fage. SO GOOD!!! I'm trying to be careful with my dairy intake, but everything just tastes better with dairy so it is hard. I know my body doesn't really like it, but I think my body and dairy
Well, down 2 this morning!!
Didn't feel good today......light headed, just not feeling like me. I hope it's not the HCG, because I don't want to stop now. I'll give it another day and see how I feel. Maybe I'm just tired.
So I elected not to weigh in today for the reasons I mentioned in yesterday's blog post:
1) I didn't drink anywhere near enough fluids - I was in the lab 9-5pm and only got through about 75cc water, then played tennis and got through another 75cc and also drank a lot of coffee so basically mega dehydration
2) I ate my only meal of the day really late - 9.15pm - so I don't think my body had chance to process it by morning as I woke up (after a horrible night's sleep)

Woke up to a .8lb loss this morning, which is GREAT! I was faced with so many temptations today, it being "Fat Tuesday" and all. There were these delicious cupcakes, cookies and donuts thrown in my face today. I got really hot, started sweating and felt total anxiety. So what did I do? I REMOVED MYSELF! I literally got up and walked away. But I REALLY wanted one of those cupcakes with sprinkle or cookies with the frosting. YUM! But I keep seeing the scale drop, and it's really not worth
