    I definitely think it is possible! I know I have tried so many ways to lose weight before and nothing worked for me but HCG. I have PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome), and that makes me insulin resistant so I gain weight easily and lose weight very slowly through "traditional" methods. I think for longterm I will have to be on a high lean protein diet with very small amounts of whole grains, and healthy fats.

    Cocoa crack is made with cocoa, coconut oil, and sweetener (I use stevia). You combine equal parts cocoa and coconut oil, add sweetner to taste, and freeze. It make a very very dark chocolate substitute. Coconut oil is definitely "rogue" on phase 2 since it is a fat, however it is an MCT which processes differently than most fats. Some people swear it helps them lose, others unfortunately stall or gain on it. I tried it at the end of my last round and it didn't seem to affect me so I thought I'd give it a go this round...

    Good luck this round! You will be back in those 10's before you know it! After my last round I was in 14's but now am practically in my 18's again, UGH. My frame is tiny, I am 5'1" with little bones, so 200 pounds on me is ridiculous. I hope to eventually get down to about 120-125.

    Qwinne, I am right there with ya! I did 30 days and lost 29lbs! Loved it but didn't follow thru with maintenance like it requires... So I am back! I can't stand to look in the mirror!! I am used to being in a size 10 and 14's are tight right now. I have had a terrible time with my thyroid and they have gotten my meds undercontrol. Also, I have researched how deficient 96% of the population is in Iodine and how it slows our metabolism. So I have been on iodine replacement for 2 months and feel so much better. Do you ever feel like the combination to figuring this all out is impossible? I am determined to do this. Can you tell me what cocoa crack is? I have had strawberries with cocoa and stevia but I am curious -) Have a great day losing!!

    I hope a steak day won't be necessary but if it is, it is! I do know what ya mean and I know my relationship with food has already changed from doing this protocol. I took a small brownie and enjoyed it slowly and didn't feel the need for more at all!

    Hopefully tomorrow, the gain will be gone, and a steak day won't be necessary. I'd try and drink lots of water today. Good luck. You know, celebrations, events happen, and we'll enjoy them sometimes. A gain is worth it sometimes. Kwim?

    Lucky for me I am in Arizona and we don't do Daylight Savings time! But I've been getting up earlier to make sure my meals are prepared. P2 I got up at 6:15, then when I went to P3 I changed it to 5:40, and this morning I woke up just before 5:00 and couldn't go back to sleep! I have been trying to go to bed earlier but last night I didn't get 8 hours.

    Thanks Karli! I love P3 but it's definitely taking some getting used to!

    Wow Qwinne, you can see a huge difference with your pics, after round 1. You will see some reshaping go on in p3 as well. I did quite a bit. Very smart of you to do this. A picture is worth a thousand words. By the way, I'm sure your gain has to do with weighing in earlier than normal.

    Hehe thank you Dubbles! I'm not a professional cook but I LOVE cooking! I am getting a top of the line food processor for my birthday that should be here this week and I can't wait! I've never had a processor before so I've always done things by hand, or in a blender, or my crappy little handheld processor (holds like 3-4 cups, it is very tiny). I'm really looking forward to making low carb pie crusts, cauliflower pizza, all kinds of fun new things! I'll keep posting the things I try and I'll let you know how the chicken turns out.

    Glad we got an extension on the house too! One of our friends is buying a house with her sister and she's getting a loan modification on her existing home, so we'll probably move in over there without having to sign a lease and paying around $450/mo, *fingers crossed* That would be a nice place to be while we save up to buy a new house of our own!

    Excuse my french, but Damn, you menu sounds delicious. I had to print your blog out to keep for cooking ideas. Are u a professional cook, or something? Yummmm! Today is my 1st p3 day, I don't have anything exciting planned. Keep those postings coming. Great job on your round! Glad to hear u got extension on your house. This economy is crappy. I'm looking for an outside the house (home busines) for myself, it's been a ruff winter.
