  1. 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 ...

  2. Yay! THREE days in a row!

    Well, this is unheard of for me, but I've had a loss three days in a row. This has not happened since starting this diet. Twice I've had losses two days in a row, so maybe you can see why this excites me. Okay, yesterday's loss was hardly worth recording, but like my sig says "I'll take it!". As of today, I have lost 10% of my body weight!! Goal seems so close, and yet so far away.

    I really want to start trying on my summer stuff because we've had a few nice days ...

  3. R2 vlcd 18

    Good morning everyone! I am super sore from my run yesterday! Mostly just my shins! I also noticed i was hungrier yesterday. That makes sense to me b/c i burned more calories. So yesterday I ended up eating both my fruits and maybe a little more veggies than i should have with dinner. Not a fatal error. But i still felt kinda guilty ha ha. The longer i go into p2 the more concious i am of what i put into my body. I like that aspect of it. So today i weighed in and lost .2-.6 depending on what number ...

  4. P3 is a bit of a scale rollercoaster

    So I hit P3 pretty hard - lots of fats & cocoa crack (more fat). (That's what I crave the most, and I also think the lack of fats is what makes me so irritable on hcg.)

    Anyway - I was up SEVEN lbs in the first 4 days of P3. By the time I hit my highest, (5 lbs over LIW) I was feeling like a total failure. Last time going into P3, I felt much more in control, but this time I kinda lost it - and I also went out and got good and drunk the first two nights!

    UGH. I was ...

  5. R1/P2/D39 Last Day in P2, Freaking Out...Questions!!!

    Oh boy, I miss the drops already. Feeling a bit hungry today, but I honestly think it is mostly "mental hunger" because I'm freaking out about this transition. It's like my emotional eating tendencies are trying to kick in or something. Trust me, I'm NOT going there, but I just feel really anxious about this. I honestly think I would just keep going on P2 for a while, but I can tell my family is ready for me to transition and I'm just not losing very much any more. I've been in the same ...

  6. VLCD day 7 AM

    Down 2 lbs to 176.8. At least I think I have. I got several readings including a loss (the 2 lbs), a stall, and a gain. WTF!? I had more loss readings so I went with that. I hope I am right. Hopefully tomorrow's reading will be corrected.
    Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  8. Vlcd# 18

    Weighed in .6 of a pound MORE than yesterday. My enthusiasm and confidence is starting to erode a bit with this blow. I have not cheated once, yet my results seem to be well below average for 17 days of VLCD! I know I shouldn't compare myself to anyone else, but I've read all of lildevil72's blog entries and she did so amazingly well on her first round. My results compared to her and so many others at this point are discouraging and then to have a gain when I didn't even eat 400 calories yesterday ...

  9. P3 Day 13.....Happy St. Patrick's Day!

    I am down today to 115.8. Thats a 0.8 drop from yesterday. 0.4 UNDER LIW.

    I had 1596 calories yesterday. Breakfast eggs and bacon. For lunch, I tried a mug cake and it was terrible. Only ate maybe 1/2 of it. I had 1/2 cup of almonds and a 100 calorie snack pack of Emerald cocoa almonds. Dinner, I made the salsa chicken in the P3 cookbook. I put it over a bed of lettuce and it was delicious. I had yerba mate tea around 3pm and had chamomile/sleepytime tea before bed.

  10. Still stalled :(

    I am R2P2D6VLCD I stalled yesterday and am still stalled today. I am at 162.6 almost to the 150s and I can taste it so I am chopping at the bit! I stalled at day 3 for two days in my first round. I kept notes on everything that happened in round one and I am glad I did. Stalls unfortunately are part of the game and in the end are what make you stronger. I need to keep my head in the game. Tomorrow morning if I am still stalled I will do the apple day. I am a little disappointed in my stall but I ...
