    T- how do you usually function on that kind of sleep? (without hcg) Tired? dragging? if so, then your body is just used to being sleep-deprived. i was on that same kind of schedule when i was working- but always wanted to sleep more. most people in this country do not get enough sleep.

    that said, some people don't need as much sleep as others, and they function well that way. if you fall in this category, it's probably not affecting your weight loss. if you fall in the first category, it probably is.

    i've heard many, many people say they lose more when they sleep more. but reality is reality, as well!

    Stress raises cortisol levels which is a hormone secreted by the adrenal glands. It's the hormone that helps in the "fight or flight" response.

    Too much cortisol makes you gain fat pockets, crave food and higher carbohydrate foods as well.

    I know alot about this because my dog has cushings disease (an inoperable tumor causes her body to produce too much cortisol) and my vet calls her " her little lumpy bumpy girl" because she has fatty tumors all over her body from the high cortisol levels.

    Cortisol is good when it's kept in check, but too much causes issues. So, it's best to try to keep your stress levels down as much as possible.

    When I take HCG - I sleep like a baby!!! I go to bed sometimes at 9pm and don't wait up until 6am. HCG just knocks me down at night. I miss that part now that I'm on P3.

    T: I also go to bed quite late - between 2.30 and 3 a.m. but I do sleep until just before 9 a.m. so I get 6 hours too. On my days off I just sleep until I wake up, which is always between 11 and 11.30 a.m. So I always think that it balances out in the end. I don't feel tired at all on the weekdays when I have to get up for work. And whilst I was taking the hcg, I fell asleep quickly and slept like a baby every night. Now that I'm on P3, I spend quite a while trying to get off to sleep.

    I kind of feel the same on or off of HCG as far as how tired I am. Maybe a little more energy on it actually. But I also try to sleep in on the weekends, until my body is ready to get up. So, maybe I will try to get to bed earlier once and a while, I just really have to make a conscious effort!

    Just remember, LilHayn, that this is one area YOU can take charge now. You can make the decision to cheat or not cheat. Tell yourself you won't allow the stress to derail you from your goal. Taking B vitamins is good for stress and walking can help too. But you may just have to keep pumping yourself up and telling yourself that this is YOUR time and your chance to make a change in your life.

    Sleep more - even if you must medicate - tylonal pm, half a dose works wonders...the more you sleep the more your body has time to do it's thing, the less you have time to worry about eating and what you can't eat, the quicker the days pass and the faster you get to maintenance - that's my motto. I'm a horrible sleeper, up late, up and down all night - panic attacks etc. BUT HCG gives me good sleep. Really good sleep. I was sad to see it go when I went on maintenance. But I did deffinately learn the importance of allowing my body the rest it needs. Now I get 23 more days of blissfull sleep!

    5 days into the vlcd I had something occur that stressed me out and I was up til 2:00am dealing with stuff (people), the next morning I showed no weight loss. I went out of town and didn't take a scale with me, during that two days I had a major stress that kind of rocked my world. When I got home and weighed I had still not lost anything and for a week or so my losses were pretty slow. Then TOM hit. In the end I still lost 17lbs in 24 days I really think I could have done much better without all those factors at play as I have 100+lbs to loose. I have decided to take steps to eliminate all the stressors in my life that I possibly can, mostly by looking at some things differently. Good luck with that huh LOL I am doing pretty good so far.

    It really is amazing how many things this diet exposes about our lives and habits. This is really good in more ways than one.
    I have learned alot from this first round and will be better prepared and equipped for the next one.

    edited to add: most of what I've learned has been from you good folks on this board, many thanks.

    linda- just read your jokes once a day. i'm still laughing about the colonoscopy one and have emailed that one around.

    i've seen the same thing- stalling from stressing. but i'm not sure it affects the total loss in the end, but it's more of a temporary thing, kind of like water retention. your loss average is still on the high end of average for a woman. i have really not noticed (overall) that those with more weight to lose, lose more per round. age seems to be a major factor. and i have noticed that those who exercise, or who have lower levels of body fat to start with, lose on a higher average per day- probably because their metabolism is higher (and thus their bmr is higher). i'd try to exercise as much as you can in P3, and eat 4-6x a day to try to keep your metabolism up. you have made a great start!!!!!

    having a lot to lose can feel daunting in the beginning. but i was 80# heavier just 8 mo ago- you will be surprised at how fast the time goes. -m
