I started phase 2 on 8/29 I was losing about a pound a day and was happy with that until this friday. I gained a pound on Friday and Saturday. I almost back to the point where I started from. I have not cheated at all. I am starving and I still get hunger pains help what do I do.
I take my drops 3 times a day. Please help
So I "was" down 9 pounds in 5 days, until TOM (period) decided to make an appearance, and the scale went up yesterday 2 pounds, so i refuse to weigh again until she is gone. No need to stress myself over something I have no control over. Because if I see another gain I won't have very much motivation to stick to protocol lol. SOOOO, I went and hot an amazing hair cut today, and I feel great. And shoot, I look great too. And its that much more motivating to stick to protocol, because I'm
Today is my 12th day including my load days. I had a .6 loss this morning. I have followed protocol exactly for the past three days no defiations. Today I have this energy and feel so full I don't know what to do with myself. I am only hoping it continues, at this point I have no desire to eat anything not even allowed foods. I love this!!!
This is getting harder every day. I don't know what is happening. I start off with good intentions. I set little rules for myself and then I just keep breaking them.
The desire is soooo BIG I find myself obsessing on the food and the next meal and what I can eat. I am thinking all the time to get all the "bad" food in now because in Oct I start another round. I had asked my husband to buy cheeses bcs I was on P-3, then end of it, but really planning to extend it.
I've been on this forum all morning, trying to decide if I will actually follow through with blogging my journey to weight loss and to finding myself.
I have 70 -- yes "70" lbs to lose! How did this happen? I don't need to ask but need to act.
Day 1 for load is today. I need to eat but am not hungry.
Need to go shopping to buy food for Tuesday, need to ensure the kitchen is cleared out, and I prepare myself mentally.
I CAN DO THIS! I have to.
I had to make a decision today. I was technically at the end of P2 a couple of days ago, but I had some extra injections and I was finally losing weight, so I kept going. I was taking it one day at a time, trying to eek out as many ounces as I could before going into P3.
Yesterday I didn't have an injection and figured it was either the first of the two flushing HCG days or else I'd start again today.
Well, I didn't lose an ounce yesterday.
Was feeling pretty low for a few days. I can remember the same thing happening the mid of week two of R1P2. Anyway went to the lake this morning and went paddling. I think the combination of water, sun and exercise really helped. Thank God! I weighed the same this am but I guess I am going to have to accept that it may just be my pattern. Lose a couple of pounds then stay the same for a few days. As frustrating as that can be I will have to try and keep the end results in mind. I guess it doesn't
I am so happy and so lucky. Nothing more to say.

1 - Don't eat after dinner. Finish dinner at least 3 hours before going to bed. Allow 11-12 hours between dinner and breakfast.
2 - Eat 3 meals a day. Allow 5-6 hours between meals. NO SNACKING!
First day of P2 . . injection -in, no hunger pangs yet. I think I am fully prepared and ready to go.
Tea - Two 3-liter bottles of iced green tea in the refrigerator,
Water - Trying to shoot for a gallon
Meat - ready packages of - pre-cut, pre-seasoned 100-150 grams of meat, (I think I will be upping my proten some days),
Fruit - Apples and oranges ( might cut back on the fruit some days too)
