    Molly your post gave me so much joy. Good job girl. Buy yourself something, maybe a few things so you can take pleasure and wonder in your new size. Rewards beside the scale. Look at what you have accomplished and celebrate it.
    Beloved please stay in touch with us. We all have ups and downs and crashes. We are pulling for you.

    I was pleased to see I was down a pound and a half this morning. Last night I had an extra meal. I gram of chicken handful of baby spinach and an apple. I was bed for the night by 8. Just too hungry and figured if I had to eat at least eat protocol foods. So I have extra hunger and exhaustion and thought I would lower dose today.

    This morning... the bab.... Instead of setting in bed meditating with the sunrise I was setting at the kitchen table eating a honking 7 oz herd-ford lean fillet mignon. I could have bought half a new outfit....
    Bought 3 of them yesterday.

    Down .6 this morning. Eating my plate full of deer steak. (No longer grossing me out!)

    Here's something I'm thinking about... I've stalled out during my last two rounds (11 days and 10 days, if I'm remembering right). Both Phase 3's I ate LOTS of CO. I haven't stalled out at all this round (hallelujah!!!). I've been reading Dr. K's site and he mentioned that people who stall (plateau) while on hcg probably do so due to a leaky gut. Wonder if the fact that I haven't stalled means that I'm healed? I did take probiotics during my phases 3 and 4, too, which I know he recommends. Hmmmm. Maybe I can start LR incorporating eggs into my BAB. I know some of you are well-versed on LR - I'd love to hear your thoughts.

    Y'all have a great day!
    Amanda

    Good morning! I know we are suppose to go by our LDW but today I woke up to a 1.2 loss putting me at 165.6. Last round I was able to maintain below my LDW knock on wood I can do it again. Today is our anniversary but the anniversary dinner will wait until this weekend. Going to wait until I can have something I haven't had in the last 6 weeks!
    Great Losses to all!!

    Molly - congrats!!! You had such a great round and deserve to celebrate with something new that makes you feel good!

    Texasmom - soooooo interesting about the CO. I am going to hit it hard in P3 and hope it will heal my leaky gut if I have one. I'm going primal/paleo so hopefully that will help too.

    Destiny - great loss!!!

    AFM - stayed at 149.6 today, but got up early to remix for the final injections for DH and myself only to find the needles I'd reordered hadn't arrived and I only had 4 left! Can't imagine what's holding up the extra supplies, but that means an unplanned skip day for me! Haven't done one in a while and I want to go until at least Saturday for 36 injections...was going to decide whether to extend after weighing on Sunday but I guess we'll see if the needles arrive. What a convenient excuse to move into P3. I am really, really excited about this paleo/primal way of life. I ordered four cookbooks and have been reading Dr. K's site. I am going to see how I stabilize after this round before committing to LR because my free T3 and T4 levels are already optimal.

    Have a great day ladies and let's all be losers tomorrow!!!
    R1 (April-May 2011): Start weight 185, LIW 161.6. Stabilized very well.
    R2 (Jan-Feb 2012): Start weight 170.2 (holiday binge plus loading), LIW 149.6. Stabilized perfectly by eating less than 20g carbs a day.
    R3 (April-May 2012): Start weight 154.2, LIW 136. Stabilized perfectly.
    R4 (October-November 2012): Start weight 141.8 after loading, LIW 130.6. Not my SSG, but happy for the time being.

    Morning, I don't know if it was the Smooth Move going to work downstairs, the lower dose or adding Brussel sprouts to my menu, but I had another double digit loss this morning. Totally unexpected for W3. I was down 1.3 to 140.9 lbs. I'm pretty confident I'll hit the 130's by next week. Pinch me ... I never thought I could get this low. I struggled for years to make the 155 lb goal that my doctor set for me for Weight Watchers. Even then, after making that goal, I'd keep gaining and losing the same 20-30 lbs. This diet is a miracle for someone like me who has suffered with PCOS, hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, adrenal fatigue and fibromyalgia. I feel great!

    Destiny, that's pretty cool that you were able to maintain below your LIW. I've read that most people aren't able to.

    Molly, Goodwill is where I've been buying my clothes as I lose weight. We have one in the area that has nice designer clothes. Have you tried shopping second hand?

    Tulsa, are you able to buy syringes over the counter in OK? In Texas we can buy them at Walmart, CVS, etc. without an Rx.

    Zoe, congrats on the nice whoosh this morning!

    BTW, day 2 at 115 iu and I have no hunger! Yay!
    Maria ~ GOAL!!!

    Hi everyone,
    Just a fly by post this morning, have an early appt.

    Molly, buy yourself at least one new thing, you deserve it sooooo much.

    Zoe, you stayed POP good for you. I've been very hungry in the evening and it's so hard.

    texasmon, just finished my steak too!

    destiny, Happy anniversary! You are looking good!

    tulsagal, hoping Your Hcg get to you quickly.

    I'll check back in later to hear from Maria, Kate, Shelly and the rest.

    I stayed the same this morning, after the big down yesterday I thought that would be the case. I went out to lunch with a group of friends and stayed POP. Ya! It was hard. I had a ground beef patty and small salad with my own dressing that I brought with me. Just finished my morning steak and I hope I start moving down again in the morning. Oh, I lower dose to 120 yesterday, but so far I still have hunger in the evening, I'll keep it here for today and if I'm still hungry tonight it's 115iu for me in the morning. Maybe Maria and I are just one of those people who need a much lower dose??? Good day to all! Shelley

    Bradwells,
    Sorry to hear you're still negative. If it's your attitude, try making a gratitude list. You can start with "I'm alive, I was able to get out of bed this morning, I can talk, I have a computer, I have a place to live, etc"...You get the picture. It seems dumb at first, but when you take a look around at how many in the people in the world are not able to say those things, (except being alive, LOL) it will make you feel better. Whenever I am down, I make myself a gratitude list and it immediately pulls me out of my funk! .4 is .4 that you were up yesterday! Any day with losses is a good day!!!

    AFM, down .2 this morning, but my clothes that I have been buying at the DAV, (thrift store) are getting bigger and bigger. I too have do not want to spend any large amount of money until I have reached goal weight, so I can get a whole new wardrobe at the DAV for about $30. I have already lost 3 pant sizes and I can pick up cute designer pants and jeans for less that $4 a pair. I bought a beautiful long wool winter coat for $8!

    Have a great day everyone! The sun is shining bright here today, temperature will be 75 degrees!!! I am truly blessed to be living here.
    Cindy

    Thank you everyone for the very kind comments. I will be going to Salvation Army tomorrow and see what I can find for clothes that fit. I put on a Large shirt today to run errands and I could almost wear it as a dress. I'm going to get just a couple things to get me buy until I hit goal. I also need to clean out the closet. Right now I have 18-10 boxes of clothes for a garage sale this spring. I have a feeling that I will have another 4-5 when closet revamp is done. I went from a 22/24 in September and I can comfortably wear a 10....WOW

    Slim- way to go for staying POP

    Cindy- I'm jealous of your beautiful weather. Congrats on the loss.

    Maria- Way to go dropping doubles again. What ever it is that is doing it, keep it up and I will keep positive lower scale numbers. No doubt you will hit your goal.

    texas, zoe- good loses ladies. Keep it up!

    Molly - try your local thrift store. I've replaced almost my entire wardrobe twice shopping at a thrift store that benefits mentally handicapped people. In our area Good Will is WAY too expensive (like $9 for a pair of jeans!!!) but I know there are human society thrift stores, Habitat for Humanity Thrifts Stores and Catholic Charities Thrift Stores, plus many others. I feel good twice on these - supporting a cause and having new skinny clothes at a cheap price. Just IMHO.

    Zoe - WHOOT WHOOT for the 1.5 and the BAB!

    Texas - whoo hoo on the .4 loss and the feeling better. Personally I am not going to start off with eggs, just CO with meat and am going to try side pork, which I think in uncured bacon, instead of bacon and season myself. Paleo Cowgirl suggests that in the Cave. Probably going to make my own sausage mix, which is really easy, so I don't have to worry about additives, either.

    Destiny - Congrats on the loss AND the anniversary - WAY TO GO, GF!!!!

    Texas - 149.6 still has a "4" in the second digit. : ) I'm right behind you. : )

    Maria - SO happy you've found you're sweet spot on the dosage and YEEE HAWWWW on the double digit loss. You'll make goal this round FOR SURE!

    Slim - way to stay POP! You are doing SO well. I hope the new protein distribution helps you with your hunger.

    Cin - love your positiveness!!!! Each of us, if we will take the time to think about it, is truly, truly blessed and we cannot let a number on the scale dictate our attitude for the day.

    Brad - that finger pointed at you (re: post to Cin above) has four others pointed directly at me! .4 is .4 less than yesterday, just like she says. Settle in and let the hcg do its thing, however that works for you, because it is truly better than when you started. We are a supportive group, but definitely tough love! : )

    AFM: Down 1.0 this morning to 151 - .5 to go and then VFT (since like the 6th grade!) and 8 more to goal with 21 days left. I am one happy camper!!!!

    Yesterday I ate 7 oz chix and some cherry toms for bfast within 30 minutes of rising (I don't count the times I hit the snooze button); and was good until dinner at 5:30 when I had 3.5 oz of beef sirloin, a cuke and 7 strawberries. Black coffee, one cup of hot lemonade, and 2+ liters of water.

    I had a very active morning hiking with grandson and was so ready for lunch. I had baby spinach salad with an acv lemon pepper dressing and a honey crisp apple for lunch. No protein. It was filling. I was worried as I still had gnawing hunger. I am envious of those who say no hunger at all!
    I usually have my one fruit for our tea break snack about 3:30 or 4 but I am trying not to snack. No meat at lunch, one serving left for dinner. I left my hcg out in the sun on the bed today so I am going to have to remix. It was wrapped in foil in a case but still...
    I forgot my injection too but thursdays are usually my skip day so that was OK.
    Obviously the little king walked in the door and i never looked back. A great day.
    Mom is doing OK. Post surgery. a bad night.. I might need to go give my sister a break this weekend. I am just barely Ok and would rather be safe at home.
    if the hunger is less tonight I will have a better idea about wether to lower tomorrow. I feel good now. not hungry. Plus I will have fresh hcg juice for the last 2 weeks. 40 days for me is on valentines day and then I add back in my skip days and then 3 more days post hcg on pop. so I am exactly 2 weeks from P3. I am already planning on ordering the CO Krause recommends and ordering the canned salmon I like from vital choice. Start getting ready.
    Brad I have been doing a practiced based on Ghandi where I only complain on Thursdays. You might try that.

    I just noticed my butterfly is almost to the middle of the ocean. I'm almost halfway to shore!!! Since my son is home, he is keeping me in check! He's been gone for 2 years and is eating everything in sight! But he is so proud of my accomplishments and very encouraging!

    Brad - I meant no scolding and I'm sorry if it sounded like that.

    Kate - You're so close to goal, you'll surely make it!

    Zoe - The hiking with your grandson sounds like so much fun! Hope your mom gets better soon. Vital Choice is one of Dr. Mercola's favorite too!

    Destiny - Happy anniversary!!! Great losses today!

    Texas - Deer Steak! Wow, I've never tried that!

    Maria - 1.3 today, fantastic!!!

    Tulsagal - What cookbooks did you order?

    Cindy, you are so encouraging, I just love it! Brad if you new Cindy like we know Cindy, you would know that she is a sweetheart. She thinks in positive terms and has only our good in mind.
