    Very quiet around here... I hope everyone is enjoying their Easter break

    3 days of P4 behind me and went right up to my 2pound window with my P4 plan of more relaxed on weekends And p3 foods during the week
    Probably not wise to introduce the bad stuff so early on but I am doing a short P4... had the Airfryer potato chips on Friday and had sweet corn on the cob yesterday.. have two engagements today but none food related Down 300gm this Morning... so a tiny bit safer today

    Enjoy the day!

    But i wont get too excited... I know the revenge of the scale always happen the day after... fingers crossed

    Two more weigh ins till end of P3 although I have that lunch tomorrow

    Btw... Heads up on my neighbour...she is now in P4 and also stabilized VERY strong... will be starting her second and final round same time as me in a little more than 2 weeks

    Another small NSV.... as you know I have several measuring spots to keep track and included in the spots are my wrist, ankle and neck measurements. These are spots were we do not really lose but as winter is approaching I now need to start wearing longer sleeves.... This one shirt I could not wear last year (or the year before, come to think of it!) simply because it was tight-ish over the bust area but The buttons on my wrist was uncomfortably tight... tried it this morning it is now almost too big and I can pull the sleeves on without even undoing the buttons.... So I just revisited my stats...
    Since I started in September I have lost 15.5cm/6.1" over my belly
    10cm/4" over my bum
    15.5cm/6.1" over my hips
    8.5/3.4" on my Thigh
    10cm/4" over my bust, in spite of the fact that it is still slighty swollen
    and even 3.5/1.4" on my upper arm
    Great NSV Yvonne! Absolutely love shop from my closet. When we went out of town a week or so ago, I wore a pair of jeans I hadn't worn in years! It was so nice! Glad, too to hear your neighbor has done so well on program and with stablization. Sounds like the two of you will be on the p2 journey together again soon!

    Hi MISS M, I typed a long post on your posting (the one after your doc's visit), but I hit some button and though I thought it could be auto restored, no such luck--maybe I will recompose later, but I'm too tired today (worked in yard) to mentally or physically recompose. But so glad to hear you had great doc visit!

    HOORAY, YVONNE!!! Huge congratulations on a fantastic P3--the sort of P3 one generally dreams of--and for seamlessly transitioning into P4 in a way you feel quite good about. I think after such a long stretch of very low carb, when we deliberately introduce carbs/starches back into the diet the scale number will go up simply because the body's cells hold onto water when the glucose supply is replenished. That doesn't mean it will stay. These are the sorts of waves we must learn to ride without emotional attachment. And you're doing great!

    Thanks MissM...

    Yes and now on "School day" regime it will settle down again

    My stomach was quite upset after I weighed and recorded a gain, but I am not worried, the number of times I had to run will offset it by tomorrow, at least it was a temporary thing

    just something weird, it stopped as quickly as it started

    Was hoping to have some baked beans and then realised it contains sugar.... duh!

    Enjoy the day!

    Yvonne, last night I went to take a melatonin tablet (always take before bed--have sleep issues), and noticed it tasted sweet! Looked at label and geez, it is strawberry flavored (different from what I normally get) and it had ALL KINDS of sweeteners and flavorings! They put sugar and flavorings in EVERYTHING! Love, love baked beans!

    Dubbles, these days they hide it so carefully, sometimes disguised with fancy substituted names...We can not let our guards down

    OK so yesterday the scale went up again, I was over my 2 pound window but chose not to have a steak day as I think I figured out the reason behind the sudden increase

    Had red wine for the first time again on Monday and I had that with friend with a cheese board.... and seeing that I am allergic to Dairy, I will just refrain from consuming either of these for a while and test it again separately at another time

    This morning I am down again, just just on my 2 lbs window, so hopefully back in business tomorrow

    enjoy the day bunnies

    Glad you are down again, Yvonnne, and without a steak day. Personally, I am not planning on doing steak days per se --ever. I will do all protein days, maybe if within a few oz. of being over LDW, but the idea of of waiting till dinner to have a steak and apple, just depresses me. Ha!

    I know during my current p2 we'll be going out with some friends, a couple of our good friends spend the winter (after Christmas) in Naples FL, they come back tonite--so we will probably be going out with them soon. Then I will be
    having a glass of wine--on P2. Not exactly sure how I'm going to handle it. Not sure whether to just do a skip day, the day of and maybe the day before--or just do the best I can and accept the gain. I just don't think I'll do a true planned interruption (no hcg for 3 days or so?) Any advice on best way to handle, basically a meal out, with a little wine during p2?
