Sliding on into P3

Rate this Entry
I was having a hard time stabilizing the last time I attempted P3, so I went back and did 16 more days of P2. I dropped another five pounds in that 16 days. Seems my little old self wanted to stabilize at this weight. I'd still like to drop another 5 pounds, but perhaps do it without hcg. I'm just taking one day at a time. I'm 1.2 pounds above the LDW and have not really been measuring or obsessing about portions or calories this time. I did jump up to 2.2 above the third day of P3, but did not do a correction day. Just went about my business eating no sugar or grains. I've only added in macadamia nuts, almonds, brazil nuts. Eating two fruits a day, P2 veggies, and meat. I also have 1-2 cups of lactose free full fat dairy. So far so good.

    Glad to hear your doing well! I also decided to go back to p2 to get back to liw from r2 and hopefully 5lbs more. I too had trouble stabalizing, i was 6lbs over when i decided to go back, did one load day and gained 5lbs! Putting me WAAYYY over liw. Kind of a bummer. So you only did 16 days this time? Are you doing homeopathic? Someone told me i had to go the whole 23. I ask b/c i see a good posibility of reaching my goal sooner than 23 days.

    MarleyMom24, I am doing homeopathic and just decided when the scale was staying so steady that five pounds was not worth staying on VLCD any longer and getting my energy level wiped out. I did not do a full P3 last time and just cycled back to P2. I think you have the option of staying in P2 and upping your calories until day 23. For me, the 16 days was enough and so far so good with P3. I'm usually a lot more physically active in the summer with work. Walking 7 acres and dragging water hoses around. So, I'm hoping that the last five pounds might just come off from activity. I'm planning on staying no sugar and no grains from here out. Hoping for the best.

    Right on! Sounds like your listening to your body and have a plan. Keep me posted on the p3, i dont know why i had trouble, i was good untill the 4th week and i went up and just couldnt eat normal without gaining so i figured better go back to p2 and give myself a few lbs cushion to maintain comfortably.

    Going back to P2 is a good idea. I think the extra cushion is a comforting idea. That's exactly why I still want to take off the last 5#.
