Notes from a "clean up" round..R2/P2...UP being the operative word..AGAIN!

Rate this Entry
After the expected gain from Saturday night's chicken and pico de gallo at Baja Fresh, I gained .6 pounds. I wasn't thrilled, but not surprised.

Yesterday, I ate 1/4 of the leftover pico with chicken I made and felt bloated afterwards. I was surprised by that, because I assumed the gain was from the chicken, that there must have been some oil on it, and it was food service chicken, after all. I mean..come on! Pico de gallo is tomatoes, onions, cilantro, lime juice, and a touch of peppers?

Well, whatever it's supposed to be, it's trash now!

For dinner I ate veal for the first time on hcg, pan fried with a lemon from the backyard tree, using the pan I had cooked my husband's in. I cook his in balsamic vinaigrette. I sear it so there's nothing left in the pan. Then I cooked mine. I also made him a salad, and actually tossed the lettuce and dressing by hand, forgetting about not touching fats. (And it may sound gross, but we've been together so long, but it's the only way I have found to get his salad just the way he likes it.)

So today, I was up another .4!

I have not had any issues with constipation, and I'm past TOM for the past 4 years.

I don't have unrealistic expectations about losses. I know there are fluctuations to be expected...I'm just concerned this may indicate difficulties with stabilization. I seem to recall hearing people who stabilized well after R1 had trouble after R2.

Anyway, hopes this helps!

    Sorry to hear about your trouble with the gain. I ate veal yesterday for the first time, too. Lost some but not a lot. Isn't bloating one of the signs of a food sensitivity? Thanks for posting your clean up round to help us all when we get there.

    I found this kind of interesting because I had some fresh salsa yesterday that I bought at Sam's (basically same ingreadients as pico) and I had a big gain this morning. Although, as I said in my blog I ate a bunch of almonds in my sleep last night for some bizarre reason. I thought it was the almonds, but you're making me wonder!?
