  1. Round 2 -- shall we ride this pony one more time?..yeah...lets..

    Round 2 Loading day 2 of 3

    Okay..I messed up my last round of HcG..I am admitting this outright. I was a fool, and because I don't want to repeat being foolish AGAIN (Although, it does in general take me a few times getting my hands burned to deeply understand that the pan is indeed hot).

    I have chosen to do 3 full days of eating fatty foods:

    Day 1:

    3 cadbury eggs (I just checked the label the bastards are actually LOW IN FAT!!)

  2. Scale freaking in Phase3/Phase4??

    I feel like I had a very stable Phase 3 and so far Phase 4. I see people in both Phase 3 and Phase 4 trying to figure out why they are up 4/10ths of a lb or 6/10ths of a lb or 1.5 lbs. I see them trying to figure out what food caused it. I don't understand the rationale on that.

    The way I understand it is that we should not worry until we are over 2 lbs over our LDW. I think I could hold my mouth FUNNY and the scales show 1/2 lb change. There are so so many variables that can ...

  4. Craving, but not hungry. I weigh 191 now.

    I am finally contented, after my screw up on Tuesday night. It's Thursday afternoon, and I checked my weight exactly at 191. Anything I lose now will be real losing.

    There's roast beef in the oven, but now I am powerful and can withstand that craving. It's not true hunger at all and just all in my head!

  6. P3 has been kind to me so far….

    I read all the other posts of folks gaining in P3 and wonder to myself if I am just lucky, or perhaps the other shoe is about to drop

    8 days into P3 and I am 2.4lbs below LIW. But, need to add that TOM graced me the same day as LIW. I asked the forum if I should reduce my LIW by the 2.4lbs and got a big NO.

    Interesting things about P3 (for me):

    •Some of my workouts : cycling, hiking have been MUCH stronger, while others: elliptical and power walking, ...

  7. VLCD4: A great day...

    VLCD4: A great day...

    I need to share, but I tried to tell people on the forum and (maybe I interrupted their conversation, but) they all left. ANYWAY...I'll share with you.

    Yesterday, I had a big meeting in the morning, and I told the person in charge what I could eat (I was doing my company a favor of sorts and they were feeding us for the time). Anyway, the food arrives at 11:30am and it's Baja Fresh. The salad that I suggested is there BUT it's covered with ...

  8. VLCD10 Supplements attributing to my Yoga soreness?

    I am so sore from an hour of Yoga the other day! I am never even half this sore when I have done Yoga prior to hcg. My shoulders are killing me. I don't get it?

    Whole Food Vitamin
    Potassium
    Calcium/Magnesium/Vitamin D
    Probiotics
    Biotin
    Alfalfa & Chlorophyll

  9. Happy St. Patricks Day!

    So yesterday I learned I cannot tolerate xylitol, at all and hubby learned it too, lol. Over the weekend I learned too much stevia gives me bad headaches. And last week I learned that blue cheese (some anyways) has penicillium that I learned last summer I am allergic too, yeah fun.

    This diet has really helped me learn things, like eating better and what agrees and disagrees with me. It's helped me pinpoint exactly what the problem is. As well as eat better and look great.

  10. Officially in the 72 Hours Before P3

    Goooood morning end of P2! I'm getting more anxious as time wares on. I'm also ALREADY hungrier. I ate an apple for breakfast. Sipping tea now :-)

    It feels weirdly free to not have to be timing my food consumption around drops.... it almost feels WRONG! But cocoa crack is stringing me along...

    Last night was my first night back in the REAL gym... not mom's gym.... but where I used to train. It felt SO GOOD! I did a pretty short workout because my husband was done so ...
