    So I had my 6oz steak, salad w/blue cheese dressing, mushrooms (yum yum) so far so good right i even averted my eyes when the bread basket came.....but i said to heck with it why should i be good when it is not working and we ordered a bottle of red wine...i had 2 glasses of it yeah i know self sabotage BUT as i slunk to the scales this morning knowing i was gonna pay for it in a bad way....SURPRISE knock me over I had lost 2lbs!!!!
    I can't believe it maybe i should drink more often lol i don't know it was probably a fluke going to happen anyway but whatever it is i am thrilled!
    have been grinning like a cheshire cat all morning
    Gratz on the loss. Seems that red wine agrees with you. Course I don't like it so not something I'm going to be trying lol.

    I often have a snack after 8pm and haven't had any issues with maintaining up to now. Still at the same weight day after day... kind of funny to me actually. I'm not sure I was this stable before I did HCG but didn't have the same scale so perhaps I was. I am glad this program works so well though.

    So I've been planning to do a big wardrobe overhaul....out with the fat, in with the fit. But I kept just buying a thing here and there...well, this Sunday I'm going to finally purge the old and start fresh. The tipping point was when I wore a new shirt yesterday and got three compliments before lunch...and it isn't like I have lost anymore weight in the past month. I just realized it was because I was still wearing a lot of the same clothes as I did at the higher weight. I definitely owe it to myself to dress in a manner that shows off the hard work!

    As for weight, holding pretty steady still, was down 1 lb this morning and am completely over my brief illness so it seems I navigated that decently well.

    Have my future sister-in-law coming to town this evening through the weekend which will be fun as she is a blast....plus now my wife can put her to work on the big brunch for Saturday and I can catch a little break.

    For those of you that do yoga, I had a nice moment yesterday when I completed my first unassisted headstand. I've been able to do it with the mirror for support but finally pulled it off in the middle of the room. Once I got it the first time, I was able to do it three more times with no issue...funny how that works. Full handstand is next, but that is going to take some time.

    Happy Thursday everyone...make it a great day!!!!

    I'm making this tonight. With Parmesan cheese off course

    Cheesy Flax Cracker

    2 cups shredded cheese*
    1 cup flax seed meal
    1/2 cup butter, softened
    In a bowl, combine cheese, flax seed meal and butter. Mix until mixture forms a ball. Roll into a 1-1/2″ cylinder; wrap in waxed paper and store in the refrigerator for 30 minutes until firm. Using a sharp knife, slice cylinder into 1/8″-1/4″ segments and place 3″ apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in 400 degree oven for 6 minutes. Let rest for a minute or two on the pan if too difficult to move. Cool on a rack. Store in a bag on the counter.

    Makes roughly 36-48 crackers.

    BTW,
    I think you can use this as a pizza crust..... (wipes drool)

    Ohh I was looking for something I could use as a chip to have with some fresh salsa and guacamole (once I'm in P3... I have a whole schedule made out!) This will be PERFECT!

    I am mentioning this because sudden weight loss like that is caused by you letting go of water that you were retaining previously (other rationales could be a clerical error, or a scale malfunction), and my guess would it be be based on sensitivities.
    What have you been eating the last days to cause the weight gain to 5 pounds over LIW?
    Way to burst a gal's bubble!! lol
    i know u are trying to help and i thank you for it!!! the 5 lbs have not been in the last days..the first few came on rapidly the first few days of p3..the others have been a slow accumualtion...i did try a start over to watch for sensitivities...seems eggs cause me trouble grumble grumble and almonds and cheese and well almost anything that is not p2...except for mushrooms yay and now hopefully wine

    It is very possible that wine is the panacea of all stabilization ills.

    Track what you're eating, then toss it up so we can help stare down any potential troubles

    It's the little things.....


    for instance:

    My daughter babysits a little boy after his preschool every THursday. Every Thursday his mother sends money for chicken nuggets from Wendys. This is essentially the only 'fast food' the kids get, so it's a treat each week.

    Every THursday I smell their yummy goodness and then come home to my 'Phase-whatever' lunch without the convenience of driving through and having my food handed to me :P

    WELLLLLLLLLL

    Today I thought to myself "I CAN GET A SALAD...What the hizzzzle!" woo hoo

    I got a Cobb salad....everything on there is a-okay as I have tried it all with no problems...and the avocado ranch dressing that came with it I was ready to toss until I checked the back and checkity check it: 1 carb

    yay-yuh.

    :P


    (I did semi-cheat though and get a diet coke :X)

    After this next round I'll be shopping in my own wardrobe!! I can't wait, I am so excited to be able to wear my clothes again!! these fat clothes are so hard to take when I have an entire wardrobe of stuff that I think is beautiful and love wearing!! And a ton of stuff I was buying when I was losing weight did not quite fit me yet so I have loads of clothes with tags still on. this is the year I will be wearing them!!

    WELL, WHEN THE RESULTS ARE SO QUICK AND MAINTAINING A SUCCESS, IT IS EXCITING TO GO AGAIN. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO MY NEXT P2 IN 3 WEEKS, 3 DAYS! I AM dreading 6 long weeks of chicken, cabbage, tomatoes and cucumber again but the results are so exciting it is totally worth it. I'm jealous! When I start in 3 weeks, you'll already weigh 20 lbs less!!

    One question for everyone. Has anyone had problems with leg cramping? I had one charlie horse last week, but can feel my calf muscles tightening up and am worried. I have been taking Potassium but is there something else I should do? I used to get cramping all the time when I worked out, like once or twice a week, but I'm not working out right now. I'm wondering if my diet is deficient in something as I am avoiding most carbs. Thoughts?

    Round 1 Start 1/1/12, 272.0, 40 Days END 238.0 (-34 lbs total)
    Round 2 Start 3/24/12 post load weight 252.4 , 46 day round
    Week 1 - -1, -3.0, -3.4, -.8, -2.4, -1.2, -.6 (- 12.4)
    Week 2 -.4, -1.2, +.4, +.2, -.4, -1.4, -1.0 (-3.8)
    Week 3 +1.8, -.4, -1.0, -.6, -1.0, -1.6, -.4 (-3.2)
    Week 4 -.8, -.6, -.4 (-1.8)
