    Yes, I remember a time when I was disappointed with 0.2, but now I'm in a pattern of stalling for several days, then lose a pound, then stall for a few days, then a pound. I'm trying very hard to remain patient. Thank goodness for compliments because that's a huge motiviator when your losses slow down this much!

    I'm on VLCD 40 (I'm going to do 45 which is rogue). I've lost 19 pounds, but I still have 5-7 to get to my ideal goal of 135-137. Based on how much my losses have slowed down, it is unlikely that I will get there. I may cycle to lose the last 5 or so pounds.

    I did HCG a year ago and lost 17 lbs in a 23 day round. Much better losses, but I was heavier. Unfortunately, I got cocky in P3 and basically just quit doing it and then started eating like I had been so I gained back about 7 lbs of it. Let my mistake have a positive influence on you when you get to P3--I know I definitely will do it right this time and not get lazy if my weight is stablized in the first week!

    What about you? Have you done this diet before? Also, are you exercising or doing any walking?

    Thanks! I lost .2 yesterday - it is discouraging, but I keep telling myself it's better than a gain or stall! My goal weight going into this was 175, but now that I am at 177.8 I want to try for 165....ish. I have finally hit a "healthy" bmi and am out of the 80's and that was my main goal.
    I am so nervous for tonight, we have our work Christmas party. I have not cheated except that once. I have pulled the menu off line and am going to order the Chicken Rotini and not have the noodles. I'm scared to drink, but want to, I know drinking is off the protocol......but, I'm going to do it. Wish me luck!
    Is this your first time? What is your goal?

    GREAT RESULTS! Great work! You lose the most the first week, so one day that 0.4 loss will feel like a lot! Just remember on the days you don't lose pounds, you are losing inches!

    What is your goal weight for this round?

    Sorry for you loss and each day does get better.

    Lauren0128 - I saw the most losses when I stick with fish and cabbage, chicken and romaine lettuce. I don't buy the pre-packaged kind because it goes bad too fast. I buy the "hearts of romaine" and use one stalk as my serving. Sometimes I use cabbage as my "lettuce" for a salad. I invested in a good salad spinner [which I LOVE]. I try to have a salad every day for one of my meals. I just crumble my protein on top. I make my own lemon/vinegarette dressing using the standard recipe you can find on Food Network except I use MCT oil instead of olive oil. I haven't had any issues with using MCT oil on P2. I use no more than 1 1/2 tbs. It really is good.

    To save time during the week and to keep from cooking every night, I bake or boil my chicken and bake my fish on Sunday then I pre-measeure 80g of protein and freeze them for the future. You only need 46 pre-measured pks of protein for a 23 day round. If you do as much food prep as you can in the beginning, you will be less likely to cheat.

    I hope this information helps.

    So sorry for your loss, nothing sounds quite "right" to say when something like that happens and my heart breaks for your loss. Thank you so much for sharing your meals and experience. I am on R1 VLCD D2 and it is going well so far....-9 lbs lost which seems unreal but it is huge motivation for me so I will take it! I still have a long way to go so always appreciate hearing from someone who has walked that portion of the walk Wishing you much success and looking forward to hearing any advice you might have along the way.
