    (Only 1 pound gained, despite all the high-fat foods I ate!)

    This time around the the loading phase was not so much fun! Gorging myself was decidedly unpleasant. Remedy: make the loss stick this time around so no repeat is needed. What I'm doing different this time is engaging a nutritionist to help assure success in P3, P4
  3. I am only on P3 day 6 and i have put back on 12 pounds NEWBIE HERE

    I'm doing a FFF day with the yogurt which i heard amazing things about then do a steak day tmw. I feel really pissed. I didn't really even cheat I felt and yesterday I had all protein. Thanks for the other advice that was offered about going back to p2 foods. How long is this going to last I was 155 now I'm 167. Can I get this off?

  6. Round 3 -- here we go again. VLCD Day #2

    by , November 1st, 2011 at 11:39 AM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    I've been off the grid since early September as I entered into Phase4 and had nothing new to report. I did well in Phase 3... LIW was 210 and I spent most of Phase 3 at 206-208..... which was lovely. Then my younger and oldest sister came home in mid-October for our other sister's wedding. Ugh. We ate like cows. Seriously. It was bad. I kept thinking, "I'm going to do Round 3 right after the wedding... so who cares?"

    I should have cared! The thing about eating ...
  7. 11/1/11-down 1 lb from steak day. 145.4 P3 D18

    I know this will be a tough one, but sticking to protein today - tuna w/mayo over lettuce. Out to eat tonight though and at least 1 drink with a friend. Was down 1 lb from yesterday's steak day. No movement, so maybe will show more loss tomorrow? IDK, but on day 18 of P3 I am pretty happy that I did more drinking and cheese then ever and only had to do 3 steak days. 3 more days after today till P4.
  8. Didn't cheat!

    Made it through Halloween without cheating!! Yay me!!!

    Had a party last night with lots of food, candy and desserts and I didnt have any nor did I want any. I can do this!!

    Day 16 and still going strong!! I didn't think I was going to make it through the first week and now its easy!!

    "2 weeks into P3/ Leptin Reset. Gained 0.6 this morning, as usual I am not worring about it. I got my shipment of Pantethine last night and took 600 mg before bed, I popped the pills into my mouth then felt uneasy at how trusting I am to just put something someone else manufactured into my mouth, what other choice do I have? I can't ...

  10. Feeling proud

    I did a 4 mile hike today which wouldn't have been that big of a deal for me but it was a 400 foot descent and a 400 foot ascent. The equivalent of climbing down and up a 40 story building. Can't say I would have even considered this 60 pounds ago. This old lady is feeling proud!
