    Hello Everyone!

    I'm back, and still doing well! Today is P3 Day 12 for me, I'm almost half-way through and stabilizing! Sorry its been so long since my last update, but life catches up with us sometimes.

    I've been maintaining within about 0.2 below to 0.6 above my LDW of 116.4...
    ...and dealing with some digestive troubles along the way. I've always had a bit of a slow digestive system, so I had a little bit of trouble readjusting to the bulk of food during ...

    Hello My Fellow HCG-ers!

    Today is Day 2 of P3, and things have been going well so far! I've been keeping in my apple, and not going as high in fat as many typically do.

  4. ROUND TWO: First Round Mistakes and How I Plan to Do P3 Differently This Time

    Hello All! Well, today is R2 VLCD 20, and I have 4 more days left on VLCD, 6 left until P3! With that in mind, I've been giving a lot of thought to what I did right/wrong last round, and what I'm going to do differently this round with that knowledge.

    First, here are the 2 main things that I did wrong during my first P3:
