    Seems like something has changed as I have always used it as well… Am I just hallucinating?

I'm attempting to get over my anger......I'm trying to keep a good attitude that 7 lbs. is 7 lbs......I'm also ready for this to be over. I'm pushing to the finish line in hopes that I squeeze out a few more pounds/inches and that I get the best stabilization possible. I'm trying to keep a good attitude and look for the positives. One positive is that I was forced to think protein and veggies.....which was a bit of a different mind set than the original protocol. And, if I can continue to plan ahead and prep ahead.....I feel like I can truly be satisfied on eating protein and veggies!! (along with a bit of healthy fats and a few fruits tossed in). It was nice kicking the carb habit as well. My husband made fun of me last night when I wrapped my chicken in lettuce with my pico de gallo. I told him I had no problem using lettuce as my wrap and that I'd rather skip the wasted calories in the tortilla to stay thin. He had no reply!!!! I have no idea how much is in my vial. Time will tell. And, let's top it on off here.......I'm having to travel 4 hours wednesday to visit my mother (who just moved home from the nursing home and has dementia). She called me at 9pm last night to say that the caregivers aren't fixing her anything to eat and that she is starving!! Want that be a fun challenge as I drain the vial while dealing with her perspective of reality. (she hasn't missed a meal!). You've heard of the saying ....Laugh instead of Cry........well, that helps if you can manage it!!!!

    How are you doing BD? Hopefully, better than ME!!!!!!

    That does seem very odd Kmac. Are you eating clean, according to protocol? Is it possible you are at a weight set point? I know those can sometimes take a long time to break through. Hoping you will see a whoosh today or tomorrow.

    Hello there...... I am new to this forum. Not sure where messages will be etc.... But I was wondering if the losses were based on hcg 2.0 for all weeks, or just the last few?


    Thanks!
    Love Life

    Morning all.......it's a new day and it's a good day. Now.....9 lbs. down on day 24. I'm headed out for a fun tennis match. Unfortunately, I'm leaving town tomorrow for a much needed intervention at my parents house!! I'm taking chicken, veggies and salads to stay clean. I don't think I have been off 2.0 protocol this round. I've had a few cheats....but, nothing out of ordinary for me. I WAS hungry the first 2 weeks but haven't been hungry at all this 3rd week. I probably have approx. 4-6 injections left in vial. I'm going to continue injecting and eating on 2.0. and finish this round out. Leez said something about the B-12 mixed IN with the HCG breaks things down quicker. But, I'm not hungry at all......so, surely the HCG is continuing to work....somehow? Maybe I AM at a set point. Who knows......I appreciate the offer of intervention.....but, it's too late now. I've got one foot out the door on this round and will re-think the 2.0 IF......I ever do another round. Although, my daily calories calculation was 550 so.....not that big of a deal compared to original protocol. THANKS......to all for the support. Maybe I'll just blame Harvey for screwing up my round!! (or, I could just stop here and blame myself.....I didn't read up well enough on the 2.0 protocol so maybe "winging" it doesn't cut the mustard!! I plan to stay on for P3.......lordy knows I need it.

    Hi cyber friends,
    Today is day 25. I hope TOM is gone as it is day 7. I did lose a smidge in spite of it. I am finally out of the 190's and GOOD RIDDANCE. My set point believe it or not is here in the 180's. I told hubby this AM now the fight begins. These next 10 to get to the 170's. I also tested my BS yesterday and it was up. There is this thing called the Dawn Phenomenon and I checked it a couple of more times and it dropped. Today it was good. I wonder if the Greek Yogurt is problematic so I shall skip it and see. Today is shrimp, broth, spinach. Plus some type of white fish my husbands friend gave us. Hubby is cooking it in water and spinach foil wrap for me tonight. I am eating radishes with pink salt too. Water and power walks is on the plan today.
    My goal is to get to a normal average size of 8-10. Right now I am in 10-12's but the tens "fit" and I want some freedom and this belly fat to leave. lol I will post photos for you when I am done.

    Kmac, oh your poor mamma. That sounds rough girl. And yes, I am frustrated for you to. But the positives are coming through. All good about protein veggies and good fats with a small bit of fruit. What about the wine. How is that going to be navigated without gaining. This is a challenge for may isn't it! ha

    Lovelife, welcome Tell us about yourself. So for myself, all the losses are start to finish on 2.0 - I gained 3 pounds loading. I lost that pronto and I am down close to 12 I guess. Whiles its not exactly stellar like some, its good enough for me. I lose slow in spite of HCG too. lol.

    MPD, good morning. That's wonderful releases!!! Yes! Sounds like you are doing well.

    Hi Janeen.

    Today I am so happy with the scale so I want to celebrate. I am going to go buy a new toilet seat for the bathroom and maybe get new curtains. lol...seriously.

    BD.........about that wine.......I just can't buy it! I don't like the smaller bottles as you suggested a few weeks ago. I'm going to take a walk a night when the wine urge hits me. You are on your way to success!! I'll follow you through to the 170's! I'll need P3 help with my wine problem!!

    I'm headed to the land of the crazy, dysfunctional and demented today. Dreading it.......my patience is all gone and my compassion and empathy drained dry. Dealing with dementia is truly a nightmare. My mom told me yesterday that it had been a year since I had been home. I've been there about 18 times in the past 15 months!!

    I emptied my vial this morning. Have 3 injections left. I have chicken breasts, veggies, and salad mix ready to put in cooler so I'll have the food I need. I'm finishing this round off....it's the least I can do!! My LIW goal was 135lb. I'm at 138 now and there is no way I'll get to goal. So, new goal is finishing strong and maybe I'll lose another pound or so. I may have mucked this round up royally.....but, at least I didn't quit!! I did learn a few things so I guess I'll settle for that. I still do NOT feel the HCG in my system........other than not really getting hungry. But, I'm over it.

    I'll be off grid until the weekend. You guys keep on keeping on and stay intentional. KMac

    So sorry about your mom Kmac! I know situations like that just wear you down emotionally! You may still see a whoosh these last 3 days. Fingers crossed for another 3 lbs!

    KMac - just wanted to jump in and say I understand. I'm so sorry you're having to go through this with your mother. Hugs. I dealt with this to varying degrees with my own mother the past 3 years or so. A friend lent me a really good workbook from a seminar she went to and it had several really great pointers in there that I had to keep reminding myself (and DH) over and over and over again as we dealt with her sinking deeper and deeper over time. First of all, she can't help it. That's all. She is not lashing out at you (although it sure feels like it sometimes!) Take a deep breath, don't react, and change the topic. It takes a world of patience, but defuses the situation most of the time. Second thing - you can't fix her. This was one I continually had to remind DH about. He is a "fixer". You won't make her feel better if you correct her memory, in fact you will make her feel worse. If she thinks you haven't been to see her in a year, apologize and say "but I'm here now!" Third, and this one was the hardest for me, white lies are OK. If she thinks her mother is coming to visit next week, talk about all the fun things they will do together, don't remind her that her mom passed away years ago (I'm guessing).

    Anyway, not sure if you will read this before you leave for your trip, but I hope so. If you have an opportunity, research support groups for caregivers of dementia relatives. There are some really good forums out there (like this one) that let you share your story and read other's experiences. You also may want to look into local support groups or a seminar to attend. As we go through life, we're not taught how to deal with this altered reality, but there are organizations who have done lots of research that we can learn from. Most important, take care of you!

    Sending extra patience, compassion and empathy your way and that you have strength to get through your weekend. Hoping you get your LIW goal as well.

    Vlcd 26

    Good morning from Southern California. Our weather here is cooling this week. We live about 5 miles from the beach so its nice to get the marine layer. Especially walking with the dog. lol
    Yesterday I did fine with hunger and all but boy did I white knuckle it wanting to have a nice cold glass or two of chardonnay soooo bad. I didn't do it ( don't have any) and hubby said he was both proud and disappointed in me hahah. Its our thing to bbq and drink a few. But what happens is I eat bad foods. Its a cycle I am needing to reign in plus I am on the HCG plan and don't want to waist my money or round. Today in the mirror I can see inch loss all over and that's the bestest! That's what I am working for.

    Food today: decaf with MTC oil, water, tuna with salsa or mustard wrapped in lettuce. Cooked fish ( had steak yesterday instead with mushrooms) and maybe a protein shake. Before bed I will have low sodium deli turkey. My sleep has been horrible. Just not tired. Weird.

    Kmac, oh hon that's so hard and I get you are tapped out! One of my friends grandmother has Alzheimer's and it was so difficult listening to her feeling so helpless. This woman would cuss her out with the most vulgar of words. And when she was not effected by it, she never cussed. So it was so so hard. I seriously feel so bad and wish and pray things settle in for you very soon. Praying still for you and your son as well. And you are right, you didn't give up!!! You are 5'6 at 138 is tiny! And that WINE ugh! Yes the little bottles are not available for any really good wines I think. I am not super picky but I have tested some before and BLECH. It really will come down to serious intention and self control. Check in when you get back.


    justgitterdone , good morning.
    LinderLou , oh wow. I am sad to read you also have had your challenges. I don't think many of us realize how many people are effected my this challenge.


    Have a most blessed day.
