  1. Sunday lunch with BFF!

    Had lunch with one of my BFFs. She hasn't seen me since the week following Christmas, and since then I've lost 23 lbs. She was surprised to put it mildly. She gave me the reaction I was hoping for, which, CONCEITED or not, was extremely gratifying. I explained how I managed to lose so much in so little time, and why I've been putting her off for so long. She knew I was on a strict diet and couldn't really eat out, but she did REALLY understand until today. I did not push th diet on her, but ...

  2. Conceited??

    I was having the most AMAZING DAY!

    Decided it was time to go shopping finally. I hate not having anything to put on my bottom half for lack of things that fit. I went to Kohl's, by myself, which is rare -- DH is retired and thinks he has to tag along everywhere I go -- geez, get a life of your own...oops, mini-rant. Anyway, I went wearing comfortable shoes that slip off, and a button-down blouse for easy removal. In three hours I tried on something like $1000 worth of clothes, ...

  3. Cheese and Almonds

    So yesterday after my blog post, I decided to be adventuresome...I had 12 almonds. Just 1/2 an ounce. I really wanted to see if I could have them without a change in the scale. I said I wouldn't have cheese at all thinking that cheese was caused the previous day's weight gain. The I was faced with dinner. Since DH/son were having the aforementioned brats and fries, I was on my own. I ended up having the leftover portion of eggplant lasagna with, you guessed it, cheese it in (also with sides ...

  4. Emotional highs and lows of P3

    If any of you are reading my blog and comments, you know yesterday was a hard day for me. I was up 1 lb (and .6 the day before). Added together, just .6 over LDW. So not bad really. But I was FREAKING OUT!! I have read, and read, and read on this forum and P&I, about P3 and what to expect, what to do, etc., but I was still so shocked to see two gains in a row. Mad, upset, in tears.

    Today is better, but of course I feel that way because I woke to a .9 loss. So below ...

  5. I know I am over-reacting...

    Woke to a .6 gain this a.m. I know this is normal, to be expected, etc., etc. (I'm .5 lb below LDW.) However....I freaked out!! I was so afraid that I really messed up yesterday, that I skipped breakfast. Had about 40 oz of water, and later some chai tea with stevia. Around 10:00 I started feeling a little wobbly, so I had 3 oz of f/f cottage cheese that was in the fridge from Friday (brought w/me to work in case I was extra hungry my 1st day w/o drops). Added a little cinnamon for flavor. ...

  6. What a relief to be in P3

    I have thought about P3 for so long it's a relief to be IN IT. BTW...for those wondering about hunger in the 72 hour period. I felt none, and stuck to protocol.

    Had two eggs scrambled with about 1/4-1/3 cup of sliced mushrooms. Microwaved these together and they were a bit overdone. But I ate it anyway and enjoyed the taste of mushrooms again. Tomorrow I will use the skillet and a little butter for added flavor. It felt so good to eat in the morning again.

    Just ...

  8. Last vlcd day and first cheat!

    Well, I cheated for the first time today. I had half-n-half in my coffee. Just a tablespoon, but man was it good.

    If all the things I've read on this forum are true, I could have eaten first P3 day today - 48 hours off hhcg (my last dose was 10:00 pm Thursday night). And if the 48 hour rule is true, then technically I didn't really cheat, but it still felt like I did because I'm waiting 72 hours. Really I could start late tonight, but that seems silly, so tomorrow I will have ...

  9. Day 2 of 72 hours...going strong

    Woke to a 1.1 loss today. Was completely surprised by it, since I figured I was done losing. So glad though, to give me that cushion others talk about.

    Also surprised that I was not hungry today. I was weak this morning, but not what I would call hungry. Had two large glasses of water, and then some chocolate hazelnut flavored tea. Wish I'd have found this weeks ago! Had a funeral to go to at 11:00 so by the time I got back it was after 1:00 and I still hadn't eaten. But ...

    I am beyond excited about joining the ranks of those on P3. I've been planning my food for days...

    Yesterday was my last day on drops. I actually had what looked like one more dose in the bottle, but WHO CARES? I am ready to move on. I'm hoping to show a loss tomorrow or Sunday to give me a little cusion once into P3. But what happens, happens and I'll deal with it.

    Was prepared for hunger today, but felt none. My stomach has been doing a lot of rumbling and is ...
