  1. Ready to get after it! P1d2

    Ok after a rough start with hhcg drops I'm ready to tackle this!.

    I'll weigh tomorrow & that will be p2d1 of 26 days of drops.

    I tried the last 20 days using the 2.0 protocol but craved so much sugar that I was constantly using sugar alcohols which hurt my gut & my loses.

    I'm scared of apples. I'm going to start with berries.

    I really hope I'm under 157 tomorrow, but we'll see.

  2. Guidelines for a successful P3

    Clinics and diet centers often mislead people about how to stabilize in P3. If you are using a clinic that tells you to just increase portions of P2 foods, or to ramp up calories slowly over the 3 weeks, they are giving you very bad advice. More people have problems in P3 by eating too little than eating too much.

    P3 is not ever about low fat or counting calories. It is about lots of good healthy fats right away, and about throwing everything you "know" about calories ...

    So I ended up loading for 3days -- I know I know protocol is 2 but life happened. VLCD starts tomorrow and I'm allowed to exercise but no heavy lifting. So tomorrow is the start of my journey to a new me. Goal for this 45day round is 20-30lbs.

    Sorry! I'm coming from the perspective of amount of protein grams (and resulting calories).

    You are right, Natalie.

    Saw Dr. Today, she said they used to start people on 125 but found too many to be hungry so they now start at 150. She has said she feels I need to be upped not lowered. She said itís ok for me to try either method. They prescribe phentermine and commends the fact that I donít want to use it

  9. Hungry and weak

Last few days by now I was watching the clock for the 4 hours to pass so I could have lunch. Slight growling on and off, but not feeling like I want to empty out the fridge as I have for the last 2 days all day long shortly after my injection. Sense of smell has become VERY increased. Anyone else experience that?
    I am open to any and all comments.

Iíll skip tomorrow and check back in at the end of the day. Today was 7th SQ day. I think from reading hunger all day or at night is too much, too little if hunger is in the morning. I actually think I feel a tad better when I first wake up and start with the hunger after my injection. Then itís downhll for the rest of the day.
