    Hiya AKA!!! Thanks for the encouragement! I am trying the cocoa crack recipes --- thanks for the suggestion. I started testing it in P2 bc I cld not tolerate it in P3 of my last round. I thought i could get my body used to it and it worked. So far so good... Good Luck and have a great Thanksgiving!

    Good luck to you! 65 pound loss is something to be proud of. I am new to this forum, and to HCG, but I have read that people use Chocolate Delight to snack on, and still lose. Maybe that will work for you. I am thinking of trying it. I have 14 days left on P2.

    That's awesome! I didnt realize i started HCG on a Blue Moon. Cool!
    It's Day 2 of loading day... Gained 5lbs overnite! OMG! Tomorrow the rubber meets the road... 1st VLCD. Yikes! The last time I ate 500 calories a day was the Rock Star diet (which I don't recommend!)

    Wow...this is such an amazing story...so inspiring!! I would love to see before and after pictures as well. I can't thank you enough for sharing your experiences. This is my first round, and I'm only on day 5 of the VLCD. It all sounds so far away...and I'm not very good with any of the food techniques yet. I see people eating meals and so on cooked more elaborate with the few things we can have, but I'm so nervous to do any of it.

    I just put up a post the other day about emotional and eating patterns, and how after just a few days I am seeing them, and acknowledging them. Aside from the weight, this is such a learning experience. People like you help make us stronger and more determined. I hope in a years time, I can do the same for someone else in my shoes now!

    I know myself I will be doing at least 3 rounds. It just depends on much I lose each round and how many actually. but keep up the good work. You are doing awesome. My goal is to lose the weight and be toned enough to wear a bikini...yup I said it BIKINI!!!!! Even when I was in my teens I never wore one. I guess maybe that is why I wanna wear one now...lol

    Thanks P! Good to hear from you. Thanks for the advice. I havent made up my mind either way...just trying to stay real and wrap my head around things. I have a couple of compelling reasons to move to a R4 that I wont go into now but it is definitely a consideration.

    I have been doing the Total Gym to target my upper arms and inner thighs and it really seems to be helping my arms --- thankfully. I am also continuing to dry brush. Sadly, my thighs may need some surgical help but I will cross that bridge when I come to it.

    Have a safe trip home. Take care and hope you are doing well!!!!

    Hi Julie, read your other post too and it seems like you are making great strides and releasing in all areas of your life. Way to go! As far as another round goes I hope you take a couple month break. I am suggesting this as your friend. I know you want this to be over but we have to learn to take care of our bodies. Just sayin. Leaving for home today air gods permitting and will PM you when I get home. You are doing great. Keep on keeping on!

    Hey P, My goal for now is still 150. 19.6 lbs to go --- hehehe! Oh I agree that veggies are extremely important too! I just am not going to have them a few days a week just while I am on HCG. In fact I was concerned about my group bc they and me were doing multiple correction days in P3, and those dont include veggie. So we all pulled back to P2 foods and we did better.

    I am still searching as well. I think I am seeing some links between emotional eating, Hormonal urges and liver function. So I will peel away one layer at a time until i figure out what will work long term.
    Thanks also for your kind words and your caution. The reason I am searching for answers so intently i bc I do not wish to diet for the rest of my life. I want to create a lifetyle I can live with.

    Living --- thanks! SOunds like there may have been some hidden ingredients in the chicken. Maybe it was marinated or pumped up with hormones. The gain should go away tomorrow. Im so glad you are varying your diet. In fact, we are suppsoed to eat differently at lunch and dinner so try to expand your list of foods. Do you like beef at all? I use cubed steaks or London broil which has been on sale a lot lately. I also use chopped chicken to make burgers or meatballs. Had some tonight. Shrimp is a good one too but I show a slight temporary gain sometimes from the sodium but YUM!

    How do you like the Total Gym? Have you been using it long? Noticing any changes? I have a few exercises that I love to do like pull up for my back and arms and the ones for legs. Hope they will make a real difference. In fact, I am headed upstairs in a few to do some exercise befroe it gets to late.

    Night all!

    Congratulations Julie....I am a manager at McDonalds and last night I didn't have any food to cook to take to work. So I grilled me some chicken at work. This morning i was up 1.1 pounds. I know its not much but it disappointed me. I got me some Talapia today and it was so good. I have been only eating chicken this whole time. I am gonna keep going cause I am liking how I feel. I also have been doing the Total Gym and crunches.

    Hi Julie, congratulations on your loses and getting into the 60's. Did you change your goal to 140 as I thought it was 150 before. I hate to disagree with you but I think veggies are extremely important especially greens. I doubt that lettuce made that much difference. Are you sure it wasn't the fruit that made the difference. I do trust that you know your body more than me. I just think we need to be careful about becoming diet junkies. I downloaded diet cure after you talked about it and then looked at my iPad on how many books are diet books and thought Oh God yet another one. I am not certain of the answers here but I am examining all of this for myself and want to eventually find a way to get off the diet roller coaster. I don't know what normal is but I am not feeling like I am there yet. I am happy for you that your PI is successful for you. You have put a lot into this and it obviously shows. Great job!
