    Morning! I'm still higher than I'd like to be...(145), so today is a steak day. If this doesn't work, I may cycle to get down lower and then it doesn't matter so much if I stabilize up a bit!

    Skinny: So happy to hear that you're doing so well!

    Have a great weekend!

    Laura! You look fantastic! You should post that picture on here, and take your time starting another round. I see a very fit and fantastic looking woman.

    I had a super scale surprise today, 146.6!!!! My long lost LIW!!!!! I never thought I'd reach it without another round, but it seems that I'm wavering up at times, but wavering down as well! And that was after eating entirel;y too much cheese when I got home at 9pm last night. I was afraid that 3 slices of munster and about 3oz of parm would give me a gain, but woo-hoo, I'm lower than ever. Thank you to whatever power, internal, universal, luck, or karma that has helped me to this place

    My scale was a little hokey (as it always is on my wobbly old wood floors) but I seem to weigh 146.8. I am happily into P4 without a single correction day required. I feel like I should apologize for all my anxiety and ranting, when in fact I've been below this rounds LIW the entire time. What can I say, I'm high strung and always expecting to revert back to old unhealthy habits. I did just introduce cheese this week, and have quickly learned that it will be something I should only buy sporadically because when it's in the house I will keep eating it. I love you cheese

    I hope everyone else is doing well. You guys are so motivated, wonderful, and gorgeous!

    Thanks Diny.....after my last round when I stabilized so well, I had a hard time accepting it too....its like we're so used to having to struggle (and having failures) that its hard to accept when its all going well. So glad you've had a good P3....keep it up!

    Laura-that is an awesome picture and it sure doesn't seem like you need to do another round. You look marvelous!

    Diny-what you do you think you are doing different this time in regards to stabilizing? I know you have had a lot of problems in the past. I would love to know your secret. I cut back on cheese a few rounds ago. I assume that is not your only reason for a good P3.

    I am two days into P3 and it's been an interesting start. I was "over" P2 on my last LIW. Not sure why, it was an OK round. But, I didn't stick to P2 foods on my two washout days. I did OK, but was not perfect. So I was really worried about big gains. But, right now I am within my 2 lb limit. I am having an OK few days. I just went grocery shopping at two of my specialty stores and bought a lot of P3 foods. I plan on cooking a lot tomorrow.






    Don't tell God how big the storm is...tell the storm how big your God is!

    I screwed up and bit off wayyyy more than I could symbolically chew. (Because I sure did a good job of literally chewing). I went to a potluck birthday party Saturday night and had wings, pasta salad, a cupcake and a brownie. Gained 3.2lbs immediately. I was at 150, so I decided I would just stick to veggie and protein yesterday, and did great with that even at a big family event, but last night my sister and brother-in-law who are visiting wanted to try a vegan pizza place, and I did everything to encourage them and nothing to stop them. So after eating some fantastic pizza, I am up another 3.2 today for a shift from 146.8 to 153.2 in the span of two days. I guess what was working for me was EATING ZERO CARBS!!!! I'm not even angry, just feeling a little sheepish and chastised for being so confident in my stability. Clearly my stability is very much based on keeping to a strict menu.

    Larisse, the P3 went well because I really did stick to a lot of vegetables, no eggs, seafood, or chicken, and limited amounts of cheese. It took me a long time to accept those diet limitations, and I'm still fighting again the fact that I cannot eat flour or sugar, but as the past two days prove, I have been under LIW for three full weeks, and then with the inclusion of flour (which was the only 'bad' thing I ate yesterday) I gain quickly and significantly. Sooooo, find out what your blood type is, get some food allergy testing done, and stick with what your body likes...That's my best advice.

    Today will be a steak day. My gut is in disarray from all the magnesium and probiotics I took, hoping to avoid the gains. I'm banking on something like two days to gain the weight, and two weeks to get it off.

    It's raining cats and dogs here. Hope you're all having a great holiday weekend

    diny....hopefully alot of the gain is from retaining water from all those carbs....I hope you're pleasantly surprised and they drop off quickly. If I get big jumps like that, I can usually fight them off by having tons of water and eating lots of protein.
    thanks for the encouragement that I don't really need another round....I somewhat agree but I know that I'm 5-10 lbs higher than I really want to be and I just want to stop the gradual inching up of the scale....if I can lose 10-12 lbs on another round then I have some wiggle room and feel more comfortable

    Hi guys! So I'm pretty stable at 143ish, which is within the 2 pound limit. This despite the the less than stellar eating that I've doing...:/ I'm thinking that a few steak days might bring me down a few, since 140 is still my happy weight.

    Skinny: That's water...and the weather...and I just read an article that said that occasional indulgent eating is healthy! So there. You've taken it off before and you'll do it again!

    Laura: Okay, just where are you carrying your waist, in a backpack? There's no way you look remotely over 150!

    Alright, time to organize since apparently school is supposed to start tomorrow, but I have yet to unpack the curriculum boxes, since we decided that life wasn't hectic enough and had the our house repainted...yup, the interior. Somone just shoot me...

    Have a great week!

    Annja, lol to your style of organizing And as far as having the wiggle room/comfort zone that you and Laura mentioned, I definitely agree. If I could lose another 10-12lbs, Laura, I'd be able to feel a lot more confident and comfortable!!!

    Thankfully, I was down to 150.4 this morning, so .2 below my LIW and a nice loss since yesterday. Though still 3 up from my stabilized weight. In a few more days I hope to be back under 148. It will be very interesting to see how this recovery goes. If I eat what I was eating in p3, will I revert back to p3 weight, or will I have to do something extra beyond that? Let's hope I can keep to p3 eating and return to p3 weight!!! Yesterday I had a big salad buffet lunch, and a ton of steak for an early dinner. Today I had mostly vegetables with a little bit of meat for dinner. If I don't creep further down by Thursday morning, I'll try another steak day strategy like I did yesterday.

    Larisse, how's the next P2 going????

    Up .8 today...definitely the wrong direction, but I did eat a whole bowl of (homemade) cole slaw and a good deal of cheese right before bed last night. Random late night snack. I tried to eat the cole slaw to avoid eating the cheese, instead I ate both. I should know better by now. Not the best weight loss endeavor! Tomorrow is a steak day and I'll be keeping my fingers crossed!
