    Thanks guys! I think the key to my current success is learning from my first round mistakes. I tried too hard to conform to the super high fat P3 that a lot people follow on here (even though that isn't really what P&I dictates...it only states that fat can be indulged in more if you eat less carbohydrate...which is true!), but in doing so I ended up feeling deprived because I couldn't eat some of the healthy foods I enjoy, so I frequently fell off the bandwagon and cheated. I didn't listen to my body when I didn't feel well.

    This time, I'm listening to my body, trying to relax in the process, and find healthy things that make me and my body happy! Don't be worried about P3, just take it slow, listen to your body, and find foods that satisfy you! Moderation is the key

    I know you've got this. I mentioned it because there were foods I was able to eat after rounds 1 & 2 that gave me problems in later rounds. I agree about people having varied reactions. Hubby recently noticed that grains cause him mild asthma. The whole food sensitivity thing, although maddening at times is also fascinating to me. It's amazing what the body will do to preserve itself.

    Thanks Marvless! I really wasn't worried about eggs since I ate them almost everyday in P2. Different people also respond to allergy foods in different ways. I've been a daily weigher for some time now, and I know that for me, if my body doesn't like something, it honestly lets me know within hours (I have a very sensitive digestive system, LOL)! I've never personally had the delayed sensitivity problem. You're very right though, its always best to err on the side of caution!

    You are doing great and have a good game plan in place! The only thing I'd suggest is to wait 2-3 days before adding new "problem" foods (eggs, dairy, nuts, etc). It can take some time for sensitives to show up on the scale. I look forward to seeing you succeed!

    I read your posts, and I just want to say, "yeah, what she said!". You speak so eloquently and fluently, putting into words all the same thoughts I have had recently as I prepare to go into P3. You've done AMAZING! You have much to be proud of SM. Not just your weight loss and your journey, not just your goals, but the positive life you seek to live and achieve going past the HCG protocol! Bravo for expressing these joys and allowing others such as us to share in your triumphs! Thank you and continued best wishes to you!

    Dear skinny, how inspiring!!! I am unsure your age, but Maya Angelou said "once women turn 50 y/o she is finally the woman she has always wanted to be!!!". I am assuming you are much younger, much wiser than I....great luck! I so appreciate your wisdom!!!

    I swear we are in the same frame of mind! Well written, SM!!! I couldn't have laid it out there any better and I'm on the same page with you! ESPECIALLY about the "no counting calories!" I just want to be educated enough when this is over that I can make wise choices without obsessing and enjoy life! You are amazing! Just sayin'!
