Down only 1.2 today on VLCD3 - to 156.3. BM again though. Hope to see my 152 LDW from last round by Monday at the latest. That would mean 4.3 more lbs in the next 3 days. Fingers crossed. Have stayed on protocol with no breads or soda or gum...only 1 black coffee with stevia, water, and my chicken and spinach and apple lunch and fish dinner with lettuce and strawberries. Will change to tomatoes with fish probably next week but not sure yet.
191.5 (-1.25) This is how P3 was meant to be.....finally I think I got it. Reflecting back on my last rounds, I think I know what I have done wrong. You may not have just one bite of something wrong, first of all. You may not eat until you are about to explode. You may not sit on your butt all day and do nothing. You may not add calories at the rate of 1000 per day. You may not eat unless it is meal time. You may not mindlessly snack yourself into an oblivion. You may not eat to see what
Don't get me wrong, I am happy with the 11.3 lbs I have lost in 16 days (I don't count loading days), and I know everyone is different. But I look at the large numbers others are losing and it messes with my head. And I know scales lie. But suddenly my losses aren't enough - I want more.
That being said, the scale may only move in ounces, but my measuring tape is moving in inches. I've lost one more inch in my waist and almost 3/4 of an inch off my hips in 4 days. The diet is working

I just read a blog about a woman in P4 and how she is adding foods back that I was worried I would never add back. But she is being smart about it. Small portions of the pasta and eating enough and letting her satiation kick in instead of eating everything and feeling horrible afterward.
I used to do that. When I was normal sized I used to look at my choices and make good choices. Yes I would eat at a greasy spoon periodically and have a cheeseburger with fries but I didn't do

When the cravings come I vow to remember what I crave the most:
Drum roll please... and to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, "Glory, Glory Hallelujah"
I Crave control over my body! running, jumping, feeling good naked - heck running and jumping naked <grin>...
I crave to be able to wear what I want when I want, without worries over a muffin top or a muffin back (the bra-squished under arm thinggy)...
I crave energy and health...
I lost 1.5 lbs I'm excited...I need some friends
I seem to be stabilizing around 174.4 ish and that is much better then 175 or 176 considering I was 172 or 173 at my lowest. I cannot remember but it was one of those. I am feeling pretty well combining my new p3 foods with my weight watchers points which I did well at before. This combination is great and I feel wonderful now. I am cooking a lot with almond flour and it is very very nice. I am off to go swimming!
Hello, Hello, Hello!!!
Day 4 on the VLCD and everything is going wonderful! Down 1.8lbs when i weighed this morning - YAY!! I am not having any problems - I do get a little hungry between breakfast and lunch, but I use the toast and fruit as snacks. Guess my body has to get used to virtually no food for breakfast.....not too bad though. I do plan on doing a little exercise starting next week...nothing too strenuous. I'm also going on vacation and will be doing a planned interruption.
I am starting P3 in a couple days and I wanted to get ready. I know I found the rules on this site before and I could have sworn that I read it in Pounds and Inches but I can't seem to find it anywhere right now. Maybe it's because my kids are constantly bugging me right now but my patients to keep looking is gone. Can someone please help. If I remember correctly, anything goes except sugar and starch. I think R1 I stuck with mainly P2 foods, just more of them the first week and slowly added
