P3 this time has been difficult. I have come to the realization that I have not kept up on my water intake. So drinking at least 48 oz of water each day. That is including the ice in my protein smoothie. Cravings are gone. Man that was tough. I have since learned that cravings are a way that our body is detoxing, or you have critters in your tummy, needing to be fed. Once you feed them, carbs or sugar, they quiet down again. So thinking of doing a cleanse or two after P3.
That would be this weekend. Then I am going back on P2. Got new drops. Giving up injections. I just didn't feel well on them. So....
here we go again. Sigh! but....I really feel like I am getting the job done. Life is good. I have energy physically, but I'm a bit depressed and even cried in the shower. I need to get it together. I've been off and on with this for the past 3 years since my thyroid became enlarged and the year of sugery began. Positive thinking helps. Life is really pretty good. I have a roof over my head, a warm bed to sleep in, food in my pantry, 6 beautiful children, #8 grndchild coming in a month, an amazing hubby. Awesome inlaw children. I could not ask for more. Except for one thing...ha ha SUNSHINE! its been stormy. looking for sun today hopefully. So. quit feeling self pitty. I think the whole depression thing is I was hoping to be below 200 by now. I almost am. 203. But...I really loved it when during P2 I got to 198. I just want to be healthy and well, I can tell I'm not yet. However, the bouncing up and down the stairs is incredible. I planted my garden and could bend over. It was hard work since I had been in P2 40 days and had no physical strength. I think I'll go do the elliptical for 10 min before I shower. That should help. Get it going! Some of my hcg friends are struggling too. I feel so bad for them. Wish we all had answers for eachother. Oh well, this is a journey and a new self discovery. We just have to not give up and keep moving forward and downward...meaning the scale moving downward. Keep our sights high! Keep smiling! We can do this!

    those critters can be satisfied with probiotics or yogurt allot of the time I think.

    I wonder if the reason we are struggling is we have not learned something yet, so maybe our bodies are telling us we need to
