Lot's going on the board today. Stay strong and prayers to all! We finally got some snow here in Mass... only 3 inches or so but 1st snowfall of the year (been since Halloween),
I had a big goose egg today But the great news is.... I went to the doctors yesterday for a blood pressure check.. the last six months or so it has been very high (for me anyhow) 145/92.
I couldnt believe it 132/70!!! I dont have to go on blood pressure medicine.. I am so excited. I've only lost 16lbs but what a difference it made.
Have a great day everyone!

Lots of good losses today... so sorry for those of you with weather-related issues- it really sucks.
I'm drinking a cup of Yerba Mate- it's kinda gross... I haven't tried the chocolate one yet. Isn't it funny how I'm so paranoid that it will cause a gain or stall yet last weekend i had no problem saying yes to wine and french fries? The mind is a strange thing... at least mine is!
AFM: I am rejoicing at my new size. You have to be happy with how you look and feel, taking into consideration such things as age and leftover effects from pregnancy or surgery.
You might lose 30 by April, but since losses typically slow in subsequent rounds, you might not. You have to take each round at a time. If your head is in the game and you are averaging a half pound a day in a round, that is a sign to stay with it.
The greatest losses are the first week of Round 1, probably due to the fact that we ate a lot of carbs up to that point and too late at night. Also the percentage of body fat is greatest then. Once you begin losing, there is not as much left and losses can slow.
Losses also depend on inflammation, sleep, hormones, and cheating (including the "but I only had a little____").
If you were not stable in previous P3/4s, then it would be advisable to do at least 30 days of HCG and then watch the scale closely for any sensitivities to show up during maintenance.
Sometimes, we take a break from P2 due to travel. It could be stabilizing or it could mean a gain.
What you are after is stabilization after the loss. Sticking to the plan strictly will insure greater success.
AFM: Down 1.4 this morning. Relosing is not fun, but seeing the scale move back down is nice.
Hugs to all of you with weather challenges, grief, and disappointment. Take care of yourself and let us know how you are doing.
