  1. Round 3 DONE!

    So I guess this will be my first and only blog from round 3.

    My first two rounds were long ones and I've decided that 6 weeks is about two weeks too long for me. I end up getting weak and obsessed and UNHAPPY by the end.

    Turns out, I end up getting weak and obsessed & unhappy on a 4 week round as well.

    The fact that it is officially summer did not help.

    Last night, I had a willful and deliberate cheat related to the fact that I ...

  2. P3 is a bit of a scale rollercoaster

    So I hit P3 pretty hard - lots of fats & cocoa crack (more fat). (That's what I crave the most, and I also think the lack of fats is what makes me so irritable on hcg.)

    Anyway - I was up SEVEN lbs in the first 4 days of P3. By the time I hit my highest, (5 lbs over LIW) I was feeling like a total failure. Last time going into P3, I felt much more in control, but this time I kinda lost it - and I also went out and got good and drunk the first two nights!

    UGH. I was ...

  3. Privacy & Stalled in last 3 VLCD

    When I went on vacay with the family, my aunt saw me and couldn't stop gushing about my weight loss and how great I looked. While it felt nice...at first... and then it started to make me uncomfortable when she just wouldn't let up and was asking me all kinds of questions about the diet and was totally fixated on whatever I was eating. It made me realize how public this very private process is. Everyone thinks that it's their business and that the compliments and interest are a good thing, when ...

  4. Just don't cheat. So not worth it.

    Wow. I had a little cheat on vacation this weekend and it not only put me up 2lbs, but they're not coming off easily! Cripes!! Sometimes I just don't get this diet. I was sure it was water weight and was going to come off yesterday. No dice.

    Up until I went away I was a lean, mean weight loss machine, totally on-point, rocking 1 lb a day in my last week. Then came the travel and it totally threw me off. My last injection was yesterday, and I am extremely hungry, and hoping I don't ...

  5. Ending on a "high" note. :(

    Went on vacation with the family, and it sucked. It sucked for a number of different reasons but for the purposes of this blog, let's just say it sucked because after two days I came home to a 2.2 gain and today is my last injection. The good news is that I've lost 8 INCHES in this last week, even though I've only lost 1.6 lbs. I'm hoping the gain is just water weight (I'm ovulating), and will come off quickly. Who knows, maybe I'll stabilize lower...UGH. I SO wanted to end strong. I'm probably ...

  6. Milestone + INCHESSS!

    Finally made it below 212, a long standing low weight for me. It's the only one I can really remember in the past 10 years or more. It's been THE NUMBER to beat this round, and I've made it with just 4 injections to go!

    Also, for those of you who haven't figured out your dose, please take the time to do so. I thought I was doing pretty well on 100iu (no hunger, decent losses, etc) BUT, when I upped to 200iu, I really saw inch losses.

    In the past 8 days, since upping ...

  7. The Oddest Sensation

    I was sitting on a bench in my home with my legs together and had the oddest sensation...I looked down and my knees were touching, but the rest of my thighs were not! WOW. I haven't felt that since my twenties (41 now), and I remember vividly the first time I felt that 20 years ago!

    Small victory, but a victory nonetheless.

    And a much needed one, I may add. I have a week left of injections and remain totally OVER IT. I know that Grammy says that the long rounds are ...

  8. The Home Stretch

    VLCD 38, down 25.8. I'm going to inject for 10 more days, hoping to lose at least 5 more lbs. I've been rocking the .8/day average, so if that keeps up, it should be in the bag!

    As of my last blog, my intention was to wait until September to do another round, but I've decided to push through and do another 30 day round in May. Based on my first two rounds, I could see as much as a 23 lb loss during that time.

    I went and set up my spreadsheets for round 3, complete with ...

  9. Ugh. Over it.

    Hitting the Week 5 Wall. Stalling a bit (at a former set point), cheating a bit, wine, cocoa crack, TOM due in a day or so. Neither the scale NOR the tape measure are being very kind. Last round when I stalled, I lost the most inches that week. This time I had the lowest weekly inch loss in my entire program...

    I've got two weeks left and want to take off 10 lbs, which would bring me to my lowest weight in a decade (or more, who can remember?). I ran into the same motivation problem ...

  10. Check this out!

    Just found this on the boards, and I thought it was too good not to share! I've lost a 5 gallon jug of water and an average human brain! (I always hated lifting those bottles at work. They were HEAVY!) Enjoy!

    1 pound = a Guinea Pig
    1.5 pounds = a dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts
    2 pounds = a rack of baby back ribs
    3 pounds = an average human brain
    4 pounds = an ostrich egg
    5 pounds = a Chihuahua
    6 pounds = a human skin
    7.5 pounds = ...
