    I am having a hard enough time losing following the protocol to the letter. I can't imagine eating burgers and fries and dropping such a huge amount! Especially in week 2/3. If it is true I am jealous as hell! I would love to try different things too but I am a chicken. For me I am trying to do everything by the book so that if I do stall or gain, I know it wasn't anything I did. It helps to give me peace of mind. That being said I am getting my hair dyed today so we will see what the penalty will be tomorrow. I am also playing with the idea of going an extra week (47 days) on the pellets depending on my weight at 40 days. That is about as "rogue" as I am willing to go. I am just going to live vicariously through all of you rebel Divas.

    Cruzin: Wow! Great loss today
    Ruby: umm I would be on a haldol drip if I had rats like that in my house!
    Hotpink: I agree with the doctor route. Tell her you are on a specific diet prescribed by your Doc. Most people are okay with that.

    I am down 0.6 today which was very nice. I would love to see 150 this weekend but I am working my 3 night stretch starting sat so it is going to be a challenge. I am going to do a detox bath tonight to try to offset any oils from the dye. I read some people had no issues but some had a slight gain. You know I am rarely one of the lucky ones. It will be interesting to see if the girls at the salon notice I have lost weight. I haven't see them since the end of Jan.

    Have a skinny minny day Divas!

    jaymie, I think people who are willing to try and experiment for their own sakes are fine to do so. But, we don't always know the WHOLE story that's going on and, well let's face it, there are drama whores and trolls on any forum. I'm not saying anyone is specifically doing it, but I've been on a variety of forums for years and years. There are ALWAYS people who post their own version of the "truth" and attempt to pass it off. Sadly, it dilutes the ability of others to genuinely share what has worked for them. I believe Dr. S's protocol is tailored to work for the majority of those who use it. Some people can go rogue...others may have hidden sensitivities they never knew about until they started clearing out their system from overly processed foods, starches and sugars.

    Take what works for you, and leave the rest. I think it's fine to experiment because, let's face it, we know our own bodies better than anyone. Just know that taking that risk can backfire....guess it's the risk we're willing to take if we choose to go off-protocol. Gosh, that sounds a bit preachy and it's not the way I'm really trying to come across. I guess I'm saying take the rogue salon with a grain of salt (not sugar! ) and do what you think will work for your situation.

    Didn't get a chance to post yesterday! Lost 0.6 lbs the previous day and a pleasant 1.2 lbs this morning. I weighed myself last night before I went to bed and was 186 lbs. Woke up to 182.8. It's amazing how much our bodies do overnight! Sleep really IS important. I've discovered a love of baked apples! Slice my apple thinly, drizzle 5 drops of English Toffee stevia (mixed in a Tbsp of water) and sprinkle generously with pumpkin pie spices. Bake at 350F in a foil packet for 23-25 mins. Mmmmm-mmm-mmm!

    I dont know if I totally believe it. I dont understand how someone can lose after eating a burger and fries when I ended up cheating last night and ate 2 cheese sticks and gained .6 today.

    Tempokat..I completely agree with everything you said about the rogue forum. I think if I even looked at burger and fries, I would gain.

    I'm on day 2 of a stall. I am stuck and I know it's because of TOM. I start in 3 days... Even though I know what the stall is from, I cannot believe how much it effects me mentally. It really Pi$$es me off, to be honest. I have followed protocol to a T and two days of glaring at that scale with such contempt. I am surprised I haven't hurled it out of my bathroom window!

    Hotpinkbikini: Tell your MIL that you want to be skinny when you get married and that is more important than any food for a few weeks. Most people respect people that have the discipline to stay on a diet.

    Rogue Eaters: Ok, if people COULD really lose weight eating In-N-Out burgers and fries, I would be a rail.....seriously!!! With as much wine as I've consumed, I would be considered anorexic My rouge ways include: mixing my veggies & Miracle Noodles (the zero calorie, zero carb kind), I will probably try some ground turkey only because I have 4 pkgs in my freezer. If I stall or gain, I'll throw them away. I've worked too hard for these 16 lbs to sabotage anything!

    I plan on staying on P2 2 for 40 days or until my drops run out which may be a couple of days sooner. I'm very afraid of P3.

    Happy moment: They brought in Bagels this a.m. (which I would normally eat 2 when people weren't paying attention) and they didn't even phase me! How cool is that??????

    Good Morning Divas,

    I'm still yo yoing on the scale, after a 1.2 loss yesterday I had a .80 gain today. I have had too much stevia again and was in the potty more times than I care to count yesterday. And still a .80 gain. I almost am resigning to the fact that I have lost all I am going to lose this round. I'm still going to finish my 40 day round, but I'm not looking for any more of a loss. I am sticking to Dr. S protocol to the T. I did have the diet soda and stevia based sobe life water, but I read in Dr. S's protocol that in countries where there were calorie free foods, that they could be used. So what gives? I don't know and am not going to get my panties in a bunch. I'm just going to finish out this round and hope to lose more in round 2.

    scottish fairy, I bow down to your superior level of self control. I'd have lost it with the icecream.

    hcg23: Isn't it funny how at first we jump out of bed to take the shot and as a few days go by we forget them. I guess that means they work so well you don't even have to think about it. LOL. How's your hubby doing? That doesn't sound like it's much fun at all. *sends good vibes your way*

    memphismaggie: Welcome, glad you got the deli meat figured out. Lots of salt and processing. I'm sure your seeing a big difference on the scale.

    hotpinkb: I know all about the runs, It seems I haven't stopped since starting this diet. I'm cutting ALL stevia out from now on. Which really bites because I like it in my soda water and lemon water. Oh well, I'm tired of my tummy swirling. It doesn't sound like you've gone all out rouge, your beef, cucumbers and noodles sound amazing. I'm going to have to order some for my 2nd round.

    Ruby: I spit my coffee all over my keyboard when you fell on that guys lap. That is hilarious!!! I hope your balance is back in check today. I've had a few of those days too. I'm blonde too!

    jamie:No, I'm with you. I don't see how eating a burger and fries with all the fat in our blood stream is good for a loss. Possibly water at first but that is going to bite them, and 2 lbs, not likely.

    slyspider: I'm going to do the whole 40 days of injections and 3 more VLCD. I paid 650.00 at the doctors and I'm getting every last bit of hcg I paid for. LOL. As I said earlier I feel I am at or very close to what I am going to lose. I figure I might get a total of 3 more lbs, not even close to what I'd hoped for but oh well. There is always round 2.

    tempocat: Your baked apple sounds simply amazing. I do mine with cinnamon only. I may have to add some vanilla. Congrats on you loss, that's great!!

    Good to see everyone losing again.

    Jaymie,

    I really spent some time on the rogue thread before deciding to take on that "classification" and I clearly see two kinds of roguees - those who are just looking for a quick and easy way to justify cheating,( flaky roguees), and those who have seriously put some thought into what is really the best protocol for their specific situation in terms of a sustainable HCG journey, (committed roguees).

    You can follow the dates of the posts on many (not all) of these two types of roguees and see that with some of the flaky rogues they have not lost anything in a month, or very little in a month, or they disappear for awhile and then come back and confess to blowing it altogether, or they are wishy washy on again off again, on again, and then boom, the're just MIA. Or, you can watch the committed roguees, and like the non rogue people on HCG they have their ups and downs, they struggle with challenging days but they keep keepin on and looking for solutions and results.

    I don't think these people are manufacturing results, but I think that with some of the others you will see some inflated losses (how's that for an oxymoron) before they fall off the face of the hcg earth. Sorry if my opinion has offended anybody lurking (I;m fairly sure it didn't offend any of the regular divas

    Back on top of the world (instead of on top of some guy's lap)

    Hi Ladies...I'm baaccckkkk...

    Gotta run cause I slept in way late with my ambien. DH told me the rat was back scratchin around in the wall last night but I didn't hear him cause I was in happy ambien land. Thankfully the rats are not in my house ladies (YIKES) they, or he, is inside a wall and it looks like we are going to get the contractor that did a recent major remodel on this house to come out and take care of him (them). YES!

    DOWN 1.2 TODAY! Oh wait, that's not such a big deal because that is once again true to course of this crazy 3 day loss schedule that my body follows like the bible.

    Okay, I'll be back for some major Diva catch up this afternoon, so many exciting posts I want to respond to!

    Catch-up time!

    Ruby and the Water Rats (kind of sounds like a band!): I'm so with you on the "diet on the edge". I've had couple of those days where I'm just off/fuzzy. It seems to be because I did too much physical activity the day before and/or missed my supplements. Yesterday I had an occular migraine (my husband's optometrist calls them this). No pain but wierd, fuzzy vision and almost like looking through a prism. Hard to cook dinner that way. After 10 minutes I thought to drink some vitamin water zero and my vision was normal again in another 10 minutes.

    Yay to your losses and good sleep!

    Jaymie: I thingk the going rogue cheeseburger incident is a "poster" who neglected to post the next day or day after when they gained and/or stalled. When I've had real cheats (a couple of days of wine drinking and last week 2 mocha light frappuccinos) I was fine the following day but then had a slight gain followed by several days of stall.

    Cruzin: 500 calories is so low for a man! Especially if he's big or tall! He's got to be burning at least 3000 calories a day doing nothing. My two cents: add another 100-150 grams of protein and another fruit! He'll feel better and stick this out longer!

    hotpinkbikini: I liked what Jaymie said about MIL. Plead doctor's prescriped diet to ferret out allergies!

    tempokat: Nice losses! I've tracked my weight before bed for the last 2 weeks and consistently lose 2 - 2.4 lbs overnight.

    Smashie: Hang in there! I'm on the same TOM schedule and can't WAIT for tomorrow! TOM better arrive!

    redrobin: You hand in there too! Are you tracking inches and body fat? I'll bet you're losing inches and fat without being able to see it on the scale as the water weight shifts in your body.

    As for me, up .4 today BUT I dropped 1 WHOLE percent in body fat! That puts me under 30%!!! I watched Biggest Loser the other night and the young gal who has already lost 200 lbs was told she had something like 33% body fat. That's less than what I started with!! I know our body fat % increases as we get older but being 20 years her senior I still shouldn't have had the same body fat % as she has. I'd like to get my body fat % done the way they do it on the show and see where I am. Or maybe I'm delusional. That could certainly be the case

    Was going to post about my rogue tendencies but I have to run and pick my daughter up from school and get her to gymnastics! Plus, got to make myself one of my rogue treats before I go! I'll post about my rogueness later tonight for anyone who's interested

    Good story for a few chuckles :-)

    Diva's! Do you know we are almost at page 100?! That is so exciting and shows just how much support goes on on this thread :-)

    Thanks everyone for the MIL advice I'm sure i'll get a bit of flack (she is very anti-diet) but you're all right! * I * am doing this for nobody else but myself and my health! Everyone else who doesn't like it can go eat a bologna sandwich! :-)

    I have been DYING to tell you ladies this story since it happened this afternoon!
    So I was grocery shopping for my fiance and I and of course sandwich meat is on the list, so I stroll up to the deli counter and the usual chipper deli man is standing behind the glass. So far so good right? I ask for half a pound of ham and half a pound of turkey. This nice gentleman asks how thick I want it shaved. I said " Oh regular is just fine" (I mean, I don't usually eat the stuff how do i know) he shaves a piece off looks at me with a big smile, lifts up the slice of ham for me to see and says "how's this?" "Just fine!" I said with a smile. Next he hands me the piece of meat for a sample! AHHH! I haven't strayed once yet on this diet and I'll be damned if I'm going to cheat with a measly paper thin piece of ham! hahaha
    Thankfully there was only one other woman around. When she wasn't looking I decided to stuff this little ham slice in my grocery list and crumple it up! PHEW disaster avoided :-) I'm feelin' good tonight ladies , feelin' really good!

    Anyhow, Hope everyone is having a lovely day!
    Happy St. Patties day
