Thread: The P2 Band part two (and a half)

  1. #1069
    Hi all,

    Well, I lost a couple pounds from my steak day but not what I had hoped to lose. It sounds odd but I can FEEL that my body is doing something funky/out of my control. I can't blame the gain on eating...I remember several months ago after a great P3, at the very end, I suddenly gained 4, 5, 6 pounds inexplicably and it stayed for a month and then went away. I thought it was hormonal then, I remember it clearly. I feel the same way now but I still don't like it! I was due for TOM 9 days ago..?? So bizarre! I also wonder if being in the tropics for over a year, into Az for 3 weeks then back to the tropics has something to do with it. I went from humidity central to dry as a bone and back again. sigh.

    oh well, onward all of us. We are all unhappy losers right now huh??

    I am still up 3 pounds or so above the weight I settled at after my last round.

    Oh thanks friends

    It has been a simple, wonderful birthday today. Real casual lunch with most special friend~~hours together, drinking ice tea, catching up, laughing, crying, venting. So good *ahhh*.
    Beautiful cards from hubby, daughter, parents, sisters, friends. Such loving. life-giving words. I value each word, from each person.
    *sigh. my cup is full*

    Archie and Min, I love you both. Truly miss your presence when we don't get to connect. Thank you for your birthday wishes my dear marchie friends.
    Thank you Andrea for you thoughts too.

    Min, I receive that smack about the sugar-fr poisonous "crap" lol!! That is definately how my body responded to it and I told my sister I was making a committment to never touch it again. I never feel so awful, just eating the real thing. I have to deal with even more mind sets and habits. ugh.

    My hcg arrived, I am ready to go for Jan 1. I want to use this rd as a spiritual "fast", to prepare for my heart for this next season/year. I will be on my own, no chef this rd.
    Along with mindsets, habits, and inner changes, I want to break the set point that I seem to be fighting my body on and get on to truly stabilizing under 170. I am stuck there now, after 3 steak days in 15 days of P3. LDW was 165.2.

    Hope you are all well; let's continue to remember Tensy, and Donna in their recoveries.
    Cher

    Hi Ladies,
    I am actually still alive! I have read through all the posts since I was last on 2 weeks ago...do not know where the time has gone. Min and Cher I am sorry for the loss of your loved ones. My father died the Sunday before Thanksgiving when I was 18 so I know this can be a difficult time/week...but we know they are in their eternal homes!
    Tensy I hope you are feeling better. How is Donna doing?
    I am, frankly, a mess! I have regained all but 20# of what I have lost over the past year. On the positive side, I HAVE lost 20# in the past year, something I have not done in many years. Right now I sit down a total of 50# from my highest weight. I had a rough go with the 3 week flu, allergic reaction to the medication and just craving all sorts of comfort foods. My other business launched a healthy drink mix that I am using for one or two meals/day and it seems to be helping me to get back on track. I am praying about continuing with this or doing another round in January. I would appreciate prayers for discernment.
    I seem to be in a time of really pulling back, going back to my roots. I have needed time immersed in prayer and have found that difficult when I am usually working and sleeping and doing little else. Did I mention the doctor dropped my thyroid medicine by to 2/3 of the dose I was taking? Can you say exhausted? So I re-upped it some and I can feel my energy starting to return.
    I am in a time of great discernment and change with my professional life. I am being mentored in my business and I have come to realize I do not feel safe in this situation...so I am praying for what I am supposed to do. I believe the Lord has me on this path for a reason, and I need to know how to handle this predicament. It has been sobering and unsettling in the midst of everything else going on in my life. I have pulled back, am spending a lot of time at home, just trying to re-group. Tonight I went to a wonderful sharing group at church on culture and keeping our faith alive in a culture that attacks it from every side. It was enriching, and I felt a light spark inside me in a way that has been dormant for a while. I feel I got some more direction about what to do/not do with the business after the sharing tonight.
    Sorry this is so long-winded. I have missed you all!

    Hi all. Glad to see everyone starting to talk again. We have been busy with the holidays, but the thread has been lonely!
    Minnie, when is your grandbaby due to arrive?
    Tensy, how are you?
    Cher, Happy Belated Birthday!
    MaryAnne, talk!
    Archie, enjoy the fellowship here.
    There is comfort and strength available from God. I know that I need Him every day.
    Anyone I'm forgetting, keep on keeping on!

    Hi everyone~
    Mary Anne, so happy to hear from you, to be filled in on what has been happening in your life. Sounds like you truly need the Lord's wisdom. Will pray!

    Thing1, good to hear you "talking" too

    Grace Min; soon, very soon Gma (can't remember if you are going for mimi?)

    Hugs Archie~~~~~~~~~where are you?????????????

    Blessings to Donna and Tensy, as they reclaim their health.

    Wonderful, simple, love-filled birthday yesterday; busy travel day today. Oh, and a cheat of a small amount of banana pudding. Yum. Oh, and Min, none of that fake stuff going for the real deal. 6 more days to P4 and some change. Seem to be stabilizing at 170, 4.8lbs over ldw Just keeping on, just working on permanent transformations, within. Sooner or later, the outer will get it together, lol!

    Refreshing and blessings to each of you,
    Cher

    Hi all

    Maintaining the gain and very irritated about it. But, I have control to a certain extent, don't I?

    I told my husband yesterday "I have such a sweet tooth! arg!". I always like sweets but I don't really eat them as much now, of course, but I almost can't resist right now...well today I put 2 and 2 together and got 4. Funny about that huh?? I am sure I have a yeast infection....which is likely in my gut and why I am craving sweets. Well, I want to complain about it but it's interesting to learn that this craving, which is not normal, is linked to something going on in my body, not just my imagination or my weakness. I like sweet things, don't get me wrong, but this is up and beyond that...

    So, what do you guys know about fighting this naturally? I mean in the gastro area....(I'll have to deal with the other area more traditionally but that's ok). I want to attack this craving thing going on. I know I have seen several posts about this in the past, and I'll go search, but I thought I'd ask you too. Time to do some googling.

    Can this be linked to the meds I am taking for anemia? (iron, bcomplex, b12 and vit c).

    Thanks for anything

    Hi all. It has been a while for me too. I want to start back on round 2 but I have to get another MRI and possibly another surgery....now for my liver. Keep me in your prayers. I do not want to go thru surgery again. However, I would rather get it over with.

    Started weight lifting also on Wednesday. I can barely type. My fingers hurt. Still refuse to get on the scale

    nsbrown, you are perpetually blessed, even if you don't specifically ask for it.

    Min, hahaha , you do have a unique ability to not see a birthday. I think you were the only one not to wish me on mine. No problem, we are cool. We will ask you to bake a cake for us and sing us a special song in that amazing voice of yours. What say Cher?

    I am eating sweets like crazy and am up almost 17 pounds. Two full rounds gone down the drain!!! I can't stop myself. Min, tell me more once you find out about yeast.
