    I may wind up trying this. I am R2P4D10 and 4.4 above LDW and have only eatten P3 foods. I stabilized pretty well for about a week and a half in P3. I don't know why I am gainning every day. I've done steak days, cut out cheese, nuts, fruits, done high protein days. I've tried cocoa crack (hate it btw) because some people say it helps them to release. Cooked in coconut oil, drank tons of water. Everything everyone says to help release this weight. Nothing seems to help. I will drop a few ounces to a pound but then gain the next day. I figure maybe the IF will help me get back to basics and figure this out. Thanks for the thread.
    The journey to weight loss is measured in baby steps.

    Hey peeps. Wow, mid-January already! I'm holding steady which I'm happy about. I've been doing alot of experimenting in the kitchen so I'm eating too much for sure, but it's all low carb stuff so that makes a difference. I've been back to the gym a few times in the last week or so. I'm getting lots of sleep. I'm trying to keep the stress levels down. I'm taking all my vitamins and such. Finally got rid of a 3 week cold. One ear is still plugged up but that's not unusual for me. I've gotten ear infections since I was a kid. Nothing hurts so I'm feeling good! : )

    I really need to buckle down and get losing again. I want to get to goal before summer. It sure is stubborn tho.

    Congrats for losses and stabilizing, boo hiss for gains and stalls, hugs if you need one!

    I have been having a rough week ;( I quit smoking and have seen a steady gain!!! I am trying not to eat anything that I shouldn't but all the same I'm gaining. I am so dissapointed I see a steak day looming. I will try high protien for the next couple days and see what happens. I hope everyone else is doing well!!!

    I don't really follow this thread, but I do know a few of you from previous rounds. JeepCurlyGurl - I remember hanging with you for my very first round! Well I have been trying to hunt some of my old buddies down, so I can update them on how the heck I have been doing. AND I HAVE BEEN DOING AWESOME!!!

    So here is my update on how I am maintaining my weight loss! If you are one that has read through my favorite threads you will be familiar with me. This forum was my life line through 2 rounds of HCG and 25 pounds weight loss. I got to goal weight this past November 2011, and have found what I think is the "Forever Solution" to maintaining all that hard earned work. Ready for it...

    Intermittent Fasting! I have never done anything this easily. And can I tell you...I'm teeny-tiny now. For the most part I eat clean, but I really can eat whatever the heck I want (carbs and ALL) and not gain an ounce. My build is muscular & yet very lean. To put it this way, I have three children...yet you can see my abs! AMAZING! I'm telling you, HCG followed up with Intermittent Fasting lifestyle have changed my life forever!!! I have been doing "Eat Stop Eat" IF'ing since early December 2011, and can I just tell you...I am free from the bondage of food, the scale, and trying to just maintain. I still weigh myself every morning, but I'm no longer anxious about it. I am FREE! It is the easiest way of eating I have ever experienced. And it is the PERFECT lifestyle to live, following the weight loss of HCG.

    I just want to encourage & inspire you all that there is a way to maintain your weight loss. I bought the e-book "Eat Stop Eat". But you can also find tons of information about intermittent fasting just by googling intermittent fasting. I personally like the 24 hour fast, twice per week. I also find I like to have breakfast around 10am or even as late as noon on my non fasting days. It sounds extreme, but it really is soooo easy! And that is coming from someone that always had to eat every couple hours, due to low blood sugar issues!

    Here is the amazing thing...I stumbled across I.F'ing, thanks to Dr. Simeon's HCG, steak correction day. I wondered why he prescribed fasting all day till dinner with a steak and apple in order to correct your weight if beyond 2 lbs of last injection. Why would it cause a 2 pound drop in weight, and how could I use that in some form long term? That led me to I.F'ing research, which then led me to "EAT STOP EAT". It really has got me totally balanced and stabilized. I don't have to think or worry about food EVER again. I am truly...once and for all...FREE!!!!!!

    So let that be an inspiration to all of you, that you really can maintain your HCG weight loss, forever! I know I sound like a sales person, but believe me...I don't make a darn penny off this (wish I did--). Just the satisfaction of knowing I found something that has changed my life, and I can share it with all you fellow HCG'ers out there...is really pretty awesome! So many times it seems that you journey through something like this along side others, only to have them move on with their lives and you never know whatever happened to them. I like to think they are doing well, maintaining their success, and just have moved on because they don't need the support anymore. I promised myself that I would still check in, even if they aren't the same faces. So there ya have it!

    Anyhow, I wish you all the best of luck in whatever round you are in! Blessings,

    Erin

    Don't let the weight gain get in the way of quitting smoking. It happens to most people, and not usually because they are eating more or worse things. Smoking DOES increase our metabolism. And most people who quit smoking will gain an average of 10 lbs over a few months to a year. We just need to get a handle on it and increase our activity to mimic the affects that smoking had on our metabolism. So hang in there! I quit after smoking for almost 40 years, 2 packs a day for most of those years. If I can do it, anyone can. Good luck!

    Thanks for the Pep talk I think I needed that
    I like you had been smokig for the better part of 35 years between a pack and a pack and a half. I probally should have got the smoking thing under control and then HCG oh well hind sight is 20/20 so the saying goes....
    With a couple high protien days I have managed to get back down to LIW. But I think tomorrow i will be up again as its been a hard quit day for me...Oh well I think I have the information to keep it under control...Thanks again for the support

    Hi, just wanted to jump in and add a positive post. I have read about so many people that are not stabilizing and doing lots of correction days. My LDW was 176.6. I am in week 3 of P4 and stable between 173 and 175. I eat breads, pastas and fruits in moderation and avoid sugary foods. I watch my calorie intake and workout 5 or 6 days a week. My goal is to try to lose about 20 more pounds starting in Feb. I wanted to be sure I knew about any food intolerances first. So far, looks like peanut butter doesn't work for me, but that's it. I was almost afraid to eat carbs due to forum horror stories. Please don't be scared to add new foods in! We are all different. I have a history of insulin sensitivity and even I can eat some carbs and maintain. Good luck everyone! I wish you the best in your efforts!

    Hey P4ers!
    Just checking in to see what's what.
    Hope everyone is doing fine, having fun, eating well, laughing lots.
    I'm plugging along in P4 and holding steady. Going to the gym and/or working out at home 3-4 times a week. Eating well, tho I need to stop experimenting in the kitchen all the time. It's all good low-carb stuff but I tend to eat too much when I spend all day around food. But I do love to cook and it brings me joy so I guess I just need to stop eating!
    We have had the most amazing and strange winter so far. We usually have 100+ inches of snow by now but this year I don't think we've had 30. And it's usually below freezing and often below zero in January and February but it's been in the 30's 40's 50's most of the time. But I'm not complaining about an easy winter, except that my boyfriend plows snow for a living in the winter so there's no money coming in which ain't so great for him.
    Congrats on losses and stabilizing, boo hiss on gains and stall, hugs if you need them!
    Keep on keepin on.

    Still LOVING intermittent Fasting to maintain goal weight!!!

    Just a quick update that I'm still LOVING intermittent fasting to maintain my HCG LIW of 118 pounds! It is the easiest way of eating I have EVER done, and I feel so at peace. I actually get to live and eat like a normal person & NOT GAIN WEIGHT!!! If I combine 2 - 24 hour weekly fasts with "lean & green" eating I lose even more weight! But I like the LIW of 118, so I don't really need to lose more. But I could totally see how someone could lose a lot of weight (and fast) with IF'ing!!!! Yay!

    Just thought I would share...

    Erin

    Round 1-Start weight in 2011 was 142lbs.
    Round 8-just as annual cleanup round 2017
    R8--Goal to get to 120, maintain at 123lbs.
