    I would hate to lose that progress too. I hope you can turn it around.

    Is it time to change batteries in your scale? That sounds like a low battery problem.

    I hope you have some success finding your friendly foods. The ones that you can eat and actually lose. I've found a couple foods that seem to love me that way. Pork is one, oddly. And true sourdough bread is another. I would have never guessed. But I ate almost a whole loaf of it on my second loading day (slathered with butter and jam). I wonder if that's how I managed to lose from doing the loading days.

    I did chqnge batteries in my scale this morning but didnt seem to matter. I have dropped my scale a few times as i travel with it. Maybe i need a new one
    I find high fat usually works for me...not strict keto but somewhat. Im thinking another was the bakers chocolate i have been using to make my snack with almond butter. It has very high calories and maybe im overdoing it, I ate it when i was in Colorado and weighed around 133.4 but maybe i didnt overdo it. And im not eating much at night. Maybe i ned to eat more...

    I hate when I have to start guessing what causes the weight gain. Right now I am sick of menopause. I feel bloated, and I have been having night sweats, along with in the day as well. I feel drained lol.

    I can't seem to hit 130 either. Staying around 134-135. Sometimes I go up to 137 and takes a few days of eating only the foods I know I can to get back down, without having to do a steak day.

    There are days I know I haven't drank all my water, so got to get on that and see what happens.

Will continue similar eating for next couple of days to,see,if i can get back to 134. I have stayed under my LIW but my LIW was couple lbs higher than i want

    It seems that we are all three of us chasing that elusive 130 mark.

    Rose probably has the best chance of getting and staying there, since she is able to lose without HCG. I dunno. Maybe I could too if I was willing to fast for weeks again. But I'm just not. And realistically, that only worked temporarily at best. At the point when I finally gave up, I couldn't lose much even doing that. My quest is for a way to eat well (not weirdly), but stay slim.

    My quest basically is the same , to just be able to eat well and stay slim

    I don't think I will ever hit 130 again either it seems. I am fine with 134 if that is the case. I am also doing some exercises to tone my skin, especially my upper arms. My tummy and sides need some toning as well.

    I think it is working. I found an excellent video on youtube.

    Rose you are doing well , and am sure with eating well, you will drop down

    Leez, your doing great as well, and wish you all the best in getting to your goal this time.

    I beginning to have high hopes, actually. I was going through my logs, and comparing stats so far.

    I was surprised to notice that I never lost more than 6 net pounds in the first week of the round (somehow, I remembered it as more), and that was my first round where I started at 210. Some rounds were only around 4. (I count the first 7 days of VLCD as the first week)

    So far, after only 2 days on VLCD, I've lost nearly 4 net pounds . This could be shaping up to be an awesome round. I feel great too, so I think my dose is spot on. I started the lipotropics VLCD1, skipped yesterday and did another one today. I'll be at full dose tomorrow if all goes well. Something is different, and I'm wondering if the quality of the HCG I'm using this time is better. I didn't really believe there was much difference ordering a custom-compounded product compared to using the stuff produced for fertility treatments, but maybe there is a difference. I guess well see what happens as the round progresses.

    so Leez Im confused ...are you taking hcg and, of so, what kind? Also are Lipotropics in addition to the Hcg or in place of Hcg....
    NO Leez dont think i will hit 130 and seriously not trying. I would like to maintain at 133-135 and stay there MY LIW was 137.6

    I'm glad you are so close to your goal.

    I'm taking a compounded HCG, not a brand name HCG like Odivac or Corion. The lipotropics are additional, and not started until you are on the VLCD. Lipotropics are purported to increase the rate of fat loss (I have been officially skeptical of that claim.) But since I've been a slow loser, I wondered if it might make a difference.

    People ask about lipotropics frequently on this forum. Part of my reason for trying it is also so that I could talk about it from personal experience. It didn't seem risky, since they are basically some amino acids and B vitamins. I hope they work!

    I'd love to not have to do a long round this time.

    Thanks for the info. I assume compounded means you purchased it mixed? I have always gone to a clinic and they charge me $275 for a short round with vial premixed and 30 needles Not sure how they mix it but im told to draw to the 15 mark on 1/2 cc needles

    Yay! Finally got the creeps to stop this week and weighing okay today. Fri my weight had jumped over 136 and i went crazy but determined to carry on since it was still under LIW I was in the bathroom 4-5 times yesterday so perhaps my digestion wasnt functioning last few days. Yesterday i didnt eat melon which i had added And had tilapia in butter with broccoli instead of the precooked fajitas i had started eating last week. Even added extra bacon yesterday and for dinner made my almond chocolate candy. Pleased to drop over 2-1/2 lbs and get back under 134. I had been holding but last week it went up and up to 136.6 Yikes. I thought my body was whacky. Now i will see how this next week goes .
    Leez i am happy you are back on protocol and losing successfully.
    Jayk Always happy when you check in so we are holding each other accountable with encouragement.

    I did the mixing myself, but compounded means a pharmacy actually prepares it in the vial for you for the purpose you are using it for. So it comes in a multi-dose bottle big enough to do the mixture in, unlike the overseas stuff that you have to transfer to a multi-dose mixing vial. Apparently, this particular preparation is standardized at at 100%+ potency, and is one of their selling points.

    When I got my pre-filled syringes from my functional medicine doctor, my price on that was close to what you paid. (Might have been $225 short/$400 long) It sounds like they gave you a 150iu dose, but if you ever do it again, you could ask them so you know. I didn't know my dose for my first 4 rounds either because I hadn't started visiting here, and my doctor never adjusted anyone's dose. I finally found out it was 165iu. Thankfully that dose was great for up until round 5, when I had to make an adjustment downward and learned how on this forum. It was really hard to adjust accurately with the tiny amount of stuff in the syringe.

    YAY! That is a major victory! I go somewhat crazy when I get those large jumps too. I'm so glad it came down quickly for you, and that your almond candy was not the problem. That would have been sad.

    I had another 1.2 pound drop today. That's 5 pounds down from starting weight after 3 VLC days. I'm starting to get really impressed, because my first week net loss in my very first round was 6 pounds. I'm almost there and I've still got 4 days to go.
