Haven't done a "blog" yet, and it's 20 days into this protocol. But have decided to do one, as it is almost like a diet journal. I like journaling, and have actually been keeping one off line of my hcg journey. And that is what it is. I find if I just worry about the end of the round, it's much more difficult. Instead I'm trying to use the "everyday" everyday to learn, (mostly from other people's blogs, and the forums) and to experiment with seasonings and menus, trying to carefully stay on protocol.

I'm a grandmother of three. Don't feel my age, even my doctor says I don't look my age, which makes me more determined to lose a few of these excess pounds. I really want to be the best I can be at any age. After all, age is largely just a number. So here I am.

HCG has been a godsend to me. I luv this protocol. Have lost 17.8 lbs since starting. Actually had gained some this summer. It was a long, hot summer and hubby and I had a good time, noshing together. But I'm not ready to just give up on feeling good about myself, and looking good, either. Nothing wrong with that, at any age. I luv watching Dancing with the Stars and the older people are always an inspiration. That Florence Henderson, isn't she a cutie at 76?! What I hope to be at that age.!

Anyway will try and start journaling more here than in my notebook. If someone else reads it and gets encouraged in anyway, that'd be good--if not, I'll be able to look back and reflect on how I felt, during this Round 1.

    You can use oat fiber to temper the dense calories you get in almond flour baked goods as well. Usually you can replace up to half the almond flour called for, depending on the recipe. But even replacing a quarter lightens things up significantly.

    I wanted to share a variation of Pearly's Artichoke Dip/Casserole... Full disclosure, my friend gave me this recipe, and yes, I've been known to eat it with a spoon. Also goes great with Plantain chips!

    1 can Artichoke Hearts, diced (the soup sized can)
    1 can Water Chestnuts, diced (the tuna sized can)
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1/2 cup mayo
    1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese,

    I remember ten years ago, I was not alone in cabbage causing gain. It truly leaves me sad! lol For the slaw... I take a standard bag'o-slaw... shred or dice apples... add balsamic and stevia (to taste) and chill overnight. I top

    For a drink, I had a Skinny Paloma. Thatís a lie. I had two. A real one uses grapefruit juice but there are several skinny mixes available that are 1 to 5 carbs/ sugars.

LOL! My struggle was with how MUCH food do I eat since I am in P3 and trying to get calories in yet stick to high protein so I don't kill myself and STARVE all day \o/

    Maybe a bite or two if it is something I really want. If I'm really wanting more of that taste, I'll go home and make a version that is sugar-free and with better ingredients. I generally end up enjoying my version more. Most sugary desserts are way to sweet for me now.

    What are your favorite high carb/low fat meals?

    So, it's counter-intuitive, but water chases water. Especially if the water is hydrating. Adding pink salt helps water hydrate your tissues better so that your body will release extra.

    You might try grammy's inflammation smoothie. That
