I'm on a roll here ladies - down another .4 this morning! Whoever said sometimes people lose a lot during the tail end of their cycles certainly had me pegged (I think it might have been Angie). So the happy dance continues! Let's see how many more days I can keep this up
releasing You never cease to amaze me! You continue being rogue in your own way and continue to lose weight! How great is that? (ok, so secretly maybe I'm a little jealous, but very happy for you)
I thought of you yesterday, as I ordered a fair amount of all grass fed meat from US Wellness online in preparation for P3, which should happen either over this weekend or early next week, depending on how many more injections I can squeeze out of this last vial. Have you ever ordered form them? Their meat is the best grass fed I've tasted - not cheap - but at least you get what you pay for. I've ordered from some other online sites where the meat was horrible!
RE: Smoking. So I finally quit only 3 yrs ago. I know, I know. I was a huge smoker back in my 20s, quit for all my pregnancies but then always managed to go back. This is the longest I've ever gone and I know I'll never go back now. When I finally did quit I wasn't smoking all that much (less than 10 a day) but I only smoked outside of my house and not in front of people. It was pretty pathetic actually, I felt like such a sneak. My DH hated it, said it smelled like sleeping next to a dirty ash tray and my youngest son got to the point where he didn't want to hug or kiss me. That was the end for me. Just quit cold turkey and now hate the smell of it!
Closets: Must be an end of summer thing. Or maybe a weight loss thing for me. I cam home from the beach on Sat and spend the better portion of the day on Sunday cleaning closets. Got rid of all the clothes that are now too big on me (yeah!) as I don't even want them around as a safety net anymore. Got rid of some stuff I hadn't worn in years, went to Bed Bath & Beyond and got all new hangars, drawer dividers, etc and rearranged everything! It looks so nice now! I tried on every pair of pants in my closet and was amazed at some of the stuff that I can now wear. Going to give lots to the rummage sale at our church, and bringing some of the better stuff to a designer resale shop today to see if they'll try and sell it for me. My DH got nervous when he saw me doing this (he knows me way too well) because of course he knows that what I'm really doing is making room to buy new stuff! The only thing he requested this time is that if I buy stuff I should make sure that my eating habits allow to fit into the new things for more than a day! I'll just have to show him that this time I mean business.
lysma no bike yet? How frustrating. I hate when they promise me something and don't follow thru. Congrats on getting into the 180s! How did the birthday lunch go yesterday? How did the scale treat you this morning after the lunch? I've eaten out a fair bit on this round without too much of a problem so I hope it was OK for you.
3Time You can read here about lasering: grammy's laser method for food sensitivities
Not sure how effective it is, but of course I had to go and buy one just in case I've had food and other sensitivities my whole life so am thinking I'm going to need this. Also have lots of auto immune issues (Celiac, thyroid, eczema) which I'm sure are related to it all. It's great that you've managed to get back to the weight you were the first day of P3. Even though I haven't done P3 yet, I feel totally the same way you do - that P3 is going to be harder than P2.
angie You just keep on trucking! You are too funny with your food escapades. Let me know how the lasering worked on the egg. Have you ever done the muscle testing that grammy recommends for figuring out your sensitivities or did you just know eggs were hard for you?
Zfamily Are you still seeing those tremendous losses that you saw the first week? Keep up the good work!
And welcome to Betsy and Zell!
