    But I'm not doing another steak day. I can't get into the habit of doing one every other day, can I? Would that not keep me on the flipping roller coaster I'm trying to step off? Or is it something I *should* do, just for the three weeks of P3 as needed?
    Good plan to ride it out. You can't do another steak day until four full non-steak days have passed. The less steak days you do, the better for stabilization later. Really, even one a week is too many and indicates a problem.

    You are likely right that the constipation is a major issue, so getting that cleared will help a lot. Consider enemas or suppositories. That way you don't have to wait for the initial relief.

    it sounds like you have no reason to worry. That weight gain can easily be summed up to extra exercise and excess body waste. TMI, but I was more regular on P2. Had my first BM since Monday this morning. A couple hours after weighing.

    Thanks Miss M and Yvonne, Yes P3 for me starts today. It's 10:47 and have just had a cup of coffee so far, but will do a couple sausage patties here in a few minutes.

    I feel for you about the ups and downs of P3. Wondering if you just need to adjust that LIW weight up a tad? I think Starbucks did that. Maybe that is where you body wants to settle? If you ride it out like you said, and Leez agreed, it may settle a tad higher than Last dose weight. And frankly, no one sees a lb or two--they really don't. The numbers on the scale tend to mess with our minds, and that is exactly what I know you, me would like to get over. Let us know how it goes, I'm curious if it will just settle if you go on as normal? Just don't let it get you down, you have done great, and at your weight, I am sure you look thin!

    Thanks, Dubbles. I'm not ready to adjust my LIW, certainly not after a single week. But I know that's often what folks do around here. I'll keep working with my LIW for the duration of P3 anyway.

    Yesterday was a good day. I ate well and to satisfaction, and I kept to my mindful eating practices as well as my activity goals for myself.

    Weight remained the same this morning, at 132.8, which is still 2.8 above LIW of 130. Not feeling all that much about it, and I think that's a very good thing.

    I am committed to this process of discovery and just seeing where my body settles in to stabilize. I'm certainly not throwing in the towel, though, and I'm also fighting anxiety and fear with a calm, benign acceptance of the fact that this is all new territory. I've never gotten to this low a weight as an adult human, so of course it makes sense that there's all kinds of pushback from this sweet body that's never known this place before. We're in a negotiation at the moment. It's not a fight. And we'll come to a cordial agreement at the end of P3, I expect. Even if we both have to compromise a little, that's perfectly fine. My aim is to simply use this time to settle into best practices for moving forward long term, especially with regard to mindful eating and appropriate activity levels and understanding what my body and mind need to be satisfied and well fed. That sweet spot.

    And the fact is, I just need more time to get there. But that's what P3 is all about, right?

    I did have a significant BM after I weighed this morning, but that was assisted by coffee, so I didn't even bother weighing again. However, it's entirely possible my weight is within two pounds above LIW proper. So that's all right.

    It occurred to me this morning that I might be best served by spending a little more time in gratitude as far as my body is concerned. Simply enjoy being thinner and healthier and recognizing how far i've come--rather than focusing solely on what needs to be tweaked, where I'd like to be, in what ways I feel I've failed. I believe I've been spending a bit too much energy being hard on myself, as Yvonne describes our habitual way with ourselves, and if I'm to achieve the deeper goals I'm really aiming for, then I need to begin practicing more gratitude for what is, and that will invite a spirit of abundance and love as opposed to scarcity and fear.

    So, I'll be adding that to the mix for the next few days. I think it will do me a world of good.

    ps--I stumbled upon a really delicious sauce I made up yesterday that could be used for delicioufying just about any savory thing. A kind of variation of chimichurri meets vinaigrette, I drizzled it on salad, tilapia, and brussels sprouts to wonderful effect. It was this: a garlic clove, a handful of chopped fresh parsley and basil, half a lemon squeezed, 3 T evoo, and a spoonful of harissa (my newest fabulous Thrive find--a spicy, smoky Middle-Eastern red pepper paste, which I also added to the leftover cashew cream I'd made for the soup I didn't end up needing to transform it into a kind of vegan queso with a few other additions), and salt and pepper. Whirled up with the immersion blender, it became a creamy, flavorful sauce fit for the queen that I am sometimes.

    TGIF, dear ones! We spring forward this weekend, and I sure feel hope in the air. . . .

    Hey MissM!!
    How are you? I am so sorry I have been MIA. Could not get my head around things. I am loading today and tomorrow and need to pretty much redo last round since I did no maintain well. I am not sure where my commitment went and will need to figure this out so I don't repeat this.
    Anyway, onward and upward. Hope you are well. Where are you at rounds wise?

    Happy Friday, Miss M! I took screen shot of your sauce receipe! I have a heck of a time going back to find postings I want to reread or keep. Figure I'll start taking screen shots. And I agree, P3 is definitely a process to figure out foods, sensitivities and what works for us individually. Your observation about P3 being the time to "settle into best practices for moving forward long term"--spot on! I wish i could articulate just half as well as you!

    And you're right, this weekend we move clocks forward, don't want to forget! Have a great weekend.

    Hello friend! Wonderful to see you again, and welcome back! Yvonne was very concerned about you. I just figured you needed a well-deserved break. Sorry to hear you didn't maintain well. . . .

    I finished my second round of P2 a week ago and am one week into P3. It's much more challenging than last round. Weight is all over the place. But I more or less made it to goal weight with this last round, so it's bound to be a bit of a negotiation to find a healthy place to land and get stable.

    Enjoy your loading days and many blessings on the start of a new round! I hope you'll keep checking in here. You wisdom and insights and recipes are invaluable to me!

    Weight is the same: 2.8 above LIW. Wondering if I might be stabilizing high? I'm OK with that. Have decided I'm not going to drive myself crazy chasing a number on the scale. I feel and look good. For now, that's enough.

    I've also decided to try a new guiding principle that is incredibly simple and kills all the troublesome birds with one stone. What if I only eat while I'm enjoying my food?

    Means I stop when I'm no longer really enjoying eating. Means I don't eat anything I don't really want to. Means I don't eat mindlessly. Means I'm fully present in the moment of enjoying the food I truly want to be eating because it's a pleasurable experience--not an experience through which I'm attempting to avoid an uncomfortable emotion.

    A new layer of experimentation . . . if only just for today.

    Thank you for your kind words, MissM. I'll try checking in for sure.

    I am so happy you had a good second P2. Hope you find your groove in this P3 again as well, which I know you will.

    I thought I left a response on Yvonne's thread too but now I can't find it. I see she is taking a break too.

    Morning all
    Sorry been MIA a bit - we have these crazy load shedding schedules and It keeps interfering with my weigh in times, could not measure yesterday and was late this morning but on Saturday I was over, so i just did a steak day today, just to get it back down again....

    Been hectic with work and sorting out the garage and in the process I seem to have pulled a muscle, which make reaching my step goal a bit difficult... also the inflammation in my boob seem to be extra hurtful today

    Will catch up
    xx
