    awesome report, amyc!

    Its been a good Sunday so far.....ignored the scale, felt slim in my dance dress and went to lunch to celebrate a friends birthday. The menu was challenging, but I ordered NY strip sliced over mixed greens. I used lemon juice salt and pepper to dress. The steak was lean but still tender. Probably too much fat, but the best I could do at that bar and grille. I think it will be fine, as I probably ate about 3 oz or less, and brought the rest home. I'll just have fish or bone broth for dinner to kind of balance it out.

    Got up too early to weigh, so no report till tomorrow.

    Middle of the night

    The little dog keeps wanting to go outside AFTER we went to bed. I am giving her an extra bit of food, hoping that is really what she wants and she will sleep now!

    Loved my weigh in this morning, back by just a hair in my Magic Favorite Pound. Probably a bit of dehydration from the Lemon drop martini last night, but I'll take it. Sort of expect to bounce right back up tomorrow, but will be up way early so probably wont weigh until Tuesday.

    keep up the good work, all!

    Happy to report my steak lunch didn't disturb my progress.

    P2D13: -1 pound for a total of 9 lost, and 140.

    Excited to start seeing numbers in the 130's soon. I'm already feeling more normal-- my size 6 jeans fit properly now, and that annoying bulge above my waist is getting smaller. It may always be the largest number in my measurements, but if its at least not grotesquely bigger, I can live with that.

    That over the waist bulge (my double belly...kinda like a double chin!) is the thing I want gone the most! It has been a recent thing to come on in the past 3-4 years, and I hate it!

    Yeah, that upper abdominal fat is annoying and seems to take forever to GO AWAY. But it will. It may take several rounds, but it will gradually shrink.

    I did my major weight loss in 2017, 55 lbs. When I lost the first 30 lbs, I started to see loose skin on my belly. I got a compression garment designed for post-partum, and wore it to bed. I went through two sizes of those, and I'm convinced they helped the excess skin resorb. They are a pain to put on but surprisingly comfortable to wear; did not interfere with my sleep at all.

    It's getting better, slowly, but I want it gone. I'm down an inch in the middle, and the scale says my visceral fat is lower (back in the healthy range, finally), so I just have to trust the process.

    I've been wondering how my skin is gonna fare this time. I was in my mid-late 30's when I did HCG the first time. I lost 60 pounds and had no issues with loose skin at all. Now, at 50, I'm not as optimistic. I do take collagen in my coffee every morning, so hopefully that will help with some of the elasticity. I might look into one of those waist shapers, though.

    P4 Month 5

    For years, I wore my clothes two sizes too big in order to cover that extra belly roll. Sigh. All I ever wanted was a flat torso and maybe a tiny little waist. Not my genetics, so have learned to cope. Mine came in after puberty, not menopause, so have been wrestling with it my whole life. Today I am at 126.6 at 5'4". Not a lot of extra fat on me right now. I could lose some with more exercise, but that area... nope. It does get smaller, just never gets to flat. But if you HAD a flat tum at some point, there is hope!

    I was back up again yesterday, but weighed so early, I didn't track. I am back down some today, but since I didn't update my ticker, it looks like an up. LOL. That will teach me to skip!

    Man, I am overwhelmed. Work, house, family. I get tired! Annual physical this week. Maybe the doc will give me Old Lady Vitamins that will help. Vitamin, Vicodin, sounds the same to me...

    Onward!

    I have 4 children, so I wouldn't go so far as to say I had a flat tummy, but I only had one tummy before, lol, and it was flatter. I've been pear shaped my entire life, but I'm 5'7 and larger-boned, so I can carry a bit more weight. I was slender for a lot of my life, but it has gotten harder with stress (which continues to get worse with all the caregiving responsibilities and being sandwiched between young adult kids with autism, and parents whose health continues to decline, plus my own health issues the past 3 years). Throw perimenopause and law school in the middle of all of it, and it has become nearly impossible to get it back off/keep it off.

    HCG got me a little closer to hourglass from pear-shaped, but this past few years has thrown me squarely into apple territory. I'd like to fix that.

    And I feel you on the tired! I thought things would be easier when the kids grew up, that the work and stress would lessen, but they haven't. In some ways, they have only changed, but in a lot of ways, it's a lot harder! And I'm not a spring chicken anymore! Funny that you mention vicodin. I was sitting here last night thinking about how much better I would feel if I could just get one night's worth of clonazepam sleep! If my brain could just pipe down a minute, the rest of me might stand a chance at relaxing and recovering!

    Jenny, I like you already.

    >cough< overachiever. LOL. Law School on top of everything! GOOD FOR YOU, but ... wow.

    I'm older so have been through the aging parents thing and now just miss them terribly. The kid thing, I am very involved with a special needs kiddo, but even with all I do, I am just back up to his actual parents, my sister and her hubs. So, .... again. Wow. You got a lot on your plate and it ain't cake.

    So, good for you for taking the time and energy to take care of you. You know you can't do all the other stuff if you don't. I am in awe of many many of the Losers on here who have complex and just plain tough stuff to get through for OTHERS every day. Proud of you and all of the others here.

    Onward!

    Pearl,

    It's true. I might be a tiny bit of an overachiever.

    I ended up having to step back from school about a month and a half ago when both my parents had separate stroke-like incidents within a week of each other. She already had one a few years ago and hadn't fully recovered, but this one was a small one, and she's at least back where she was before this one happened. He was in the hospital for 10 days and still isn't better, two months later. They are doing ok, all things considered, but it has been a slow road, and my own health was already suffering.

    I left in good academic standing and I'm still hoping I will be able to go back and finish at some point. But if I do, it will have to be different. I was commuting to Birmingham (AL) every day, 2.5 hrs each way, and it took a huge toll on my body. I'm looking into online ABA-accredited JD programs now while I try and get everyone straightened back out, including myself! I only have a little over a year left to go, and it will be a shame to waste it. God has me where he wants me right now, so I need to learn to be ok with whatever happens. But that is part of the emotional stuff I've packed away and am having to work through with this diet.

    I really appreciate your kind words of support. We are all carrying things and I'm glad we are all here to support one another!
