Thread: Touching kids' messes

  1. #1

    Touching kids' messes

    How rigid do I need to be with touching items that aren't protocol? My kids are 3, 5 and 7 so basically my whole house is sticky. I keep getting caught off guard; smear of peanut butter on a cup when I go to get them more water, syrupy hands touching my leg during breakfast. Mystery substance on the handle of a fork I found hiding under the table. You get the idea.

    I wear gloves when I make their food and wash the dishes. Do I need to wear gloves to wash their hair?

    We have a birthday party coming up that I'll be guaranteed to have to have to wipe cake frosting off of someone, do I need to put gloves on in front of everyone (most of them vistually joining us but can still see)?

    If I need to be 100% rigid then thats what I'll do, I didn't commit to this with the intention to be lax but I want to make sure I'm not being overly cautious about something that doesn't matter. I read the stories in the protocol about the makeup pots and the glass eye and it freaked me out about any tiny slip-up.

    Hi Kelsey
    Baking is one of my hobbies and I am forever caught with sticky fingers ad a kitchen covered in non protocol things....
    Just keep those hands away from your mouth and face and wash wash wash to be sure ...
    Obsessive does not work....
    Being ON protocol does....
    Trust the process.... If you do things right HCG will love you...
    If those sticky fingers land up in your mouth.... HCG can be very unforgiving
    I do not think there is any need for gloves....
    Now Breathe, relax and enjoy the journey.....

    Kelsey, you might consider not weighing for at least a week. Your body is going through some wild swings after that huge load gain, and it seems to be taking some time to sort it all out.

    As for your initial question. If you rinse stuff off your hands right away, there is no issue. The problem comes when you immerse your skin in oils and then leave them on. Like getting a massage, or spending and hour hand mixing ground meat and making meatballs without wearing gloves.

    Fleeting exposure is not a problem. So for instance if you use a shampoo with some oil it in, and then rinse it right out, it is not an issue. Its the leave-in, leave on products you have to avoid.

    I asked my mom to bring her scale by to compare just incase mine was inaccurate from all the times my kids have jumped on it and carried it around. Stood on mine and it was back to what it was the last 2 days, down to the decimal. No idea where that 3 pounds came and went to in a 2 hour window but whatever, and hers had me .6 pounds lighter so I'm just going to avoid that whole mess lol. Maybe I'll just stay off the scale for the whole 41 remaining days and let the final number be a surprise lol

    Glad to hear your 3 pound jump was just a scale anomaly.

    I'm sure that was a great relief to you. Now, your challenge is to stay the course.

    You will be fine in the end.

    Because i often get in my head when i was on P2 i knew i would go a little crazy if i ate so little and gained so I only weighed after 4 weeks. Lost 16 lbs. felt like i should have lot more but was happy with a loss.
