    P3 time is flying by. Last day of P3 is on Thursday this week, and I leave for my trip a couple days later. It looks like I'm going to settle at about 140, as that is the number scale keeps going back to. About 5 pounds more that I hoped for, but close enough to still be comfortable. I'm going to plan to eat all the good things while away and trust that all the extra walking and the joy factor will keep me stable. I'm not too concerned about it. I generally lose a little on trips anyway.


    @Pearlie: cheer you on as you hold that line!

    Gotta do one more lawn mow this week.... just did one a few days ago and it needs it again already. Definitely jungle season here.

    Yay for everyone holding steady!

    JayK, still praying for a quick recovery for your hubby.

    Leez, time is flying by!!! I didn't realize the trip was so soon! Or maybe it just arrived quickly. I'm super excited for you!

    Up .9 this morning-- too much exercise/working outside yesterday. Sore today. But, I had a bunch of dresses/suits hanging in the closet that I tried on yesterday and can fit and fasten all of them. One of the dresses was a size 12! Down another inch all over, plus half an inch in my legs and arms. Slowly chipping it away.

    P4 Month 6

    I'm holding, I'm holding! Down a little more today--point 4.

    I am having a hard time cooking a full course evening meal (dinner, supper, whatever you call it in your neck of the woods) anymore. It's not the season so much as I am lazy in the evenings. After driving my nephew or running errands in the late afternoon after working all day, I get home somewhere between 6 and 6:30 and I am starved. Spending an hour in the kitchen before I can eat is unacceptable. I am hungry NOW.

    Not to mention by the time I let the dogs in and out and feed them, I want to SIT DOWN.

    Most of what I cook does NOT take an hour, but a baked sweet potato does take that long in the oven, once the oven is hot enough, and that is kind of what I measure by. It is NOT the same from the microwave. And if I am gonna have one, I want it to be perfect. Hmmm. Perfect. There is a clue. "A failed perfectionist does nothing." Yeah, I've done that one before.

    Still, I often have a snack for dinner and am satisfied. Some slices of cheese, avocado slices, maybe an apple or some stuffed olives, if I have some on hand, some sliced turkey breast. Eaten slowly while I read or watch TV or both. Dessert is some pecans and almonds with dark chocolate chips tossed in. If I am still hungry around 9, I eat raspberries or blackberries out of the box.

    My Grampa Elmer, purveyor of all wisdom from the early 20th century (born 1899) used to say "Eat breakfast like a king, lunch (dinner) like a prince and supper like a pauper." So, I am not original. LOL.

    Onward!

    I find I do more proper cooking if I plan my big meal of the day for lunch. There's just more energy to get it done then. By evening, cooking starts to seem like a big project I don't want to do. So I'm tracking with you on that. That its healthier to do the big meal earlier in the day is just a bonus.

    Sometimes I'll do breakfast for dinner, but mostly, I'll just warm up some leftovers in the microwave.

    Cool

    I have to agree with you both on eating a bigger meal earlier on. Unless I make up a bunch of food ahead of time on days off, to have for supper. That way I just have to heat it up in the air fryer or microwave depending on what it is.. Otherwise I am same, I get home and I am hungry and don't want to wait to cook the things I actually want.

    @Leez, time is flying by, your almost done P3 and then off on your trip. I am sure you will do fine as you will be walking and happy. Seems to me I remember you always doing good on your trips.

    @PearlyMae, I know what you mean about having someone in the house. I like having my daughter and her husband here, but It's nice on days they are both out as well.
    Well at least you have a plan for a bathroom and separate entrance, so then it will be fine.
    Did you get your back yard all done?

    Yes the lawn is growing fast. I will need to cut again too. Not complaining though, as summers seem short as it is.

    I have been taking things to fight this cold or flu. I felt it more so today. I have that Vicks Early Defense, and I think it does some good. I picked up one for each of us this past winter. First time trying it.
    But making sure I rest and drink water, tea etc. Hopefully just fight it off.

    Thanks again Jenny and I am glad your clothes are fitting. That is always a good feeling. My husband is done his medicine tomorrow. He seems a bit better so hoping that was enough or the right medicine to fix him up. Thank you all for your prayers.

    I cook ahead, unless I'm grilling. I make stews, braised chuck roast, roasted pork country style ribs, etc, store them glass containers in the fridge and re-heat portions in the microwave. I generally have two or three to choose between.

    I'm gonna be a jerk and tell you all that my middle daughter graduated from culinary school this past December, so I let her "practice" cooking a lot of days. My natural eating habits are closer to a 16:8 intermittent fast. I don't like eating big meals at night (I'm a brunch girl!), and I don't generally eat past 6pm if I can help it. Otherwise, it messes with my sleep and I go up on the scale in the mornings. It also means I have to go to bed at a reasonable time, otherwise, I get hungry again!

    JayK, I'm glad he seems to be feeling better! I hope you will be soon, too!

    Starting back on the second act of P2 with a 2.2lb whoosh. 186.7. Happy as a clam!

    Hope everybody has a great week!

    It's wonderful, JennyV, that your daughter does a lot of the cooking. But that means she controls the menu. Just sayin'

    I had to make major changes to my way of eating to maintain my weight loss.

    You're right. She does to an extent, which can be frustrating sometimes. But I do still buy all the groceries, and I do still make some meals. Being on the diet, she knows what I can and can't have and asks me what I want. I was really just being sassy.

    I have been making diet changes for a while, esp with autoimmune issues. Adding LDN back in helped bring the inflammation back down a lot and my weight was already starting to drop the 2 months before going back on hcg. That was actually what got me feeling better enough to give hcg a try again. I was too depleted the last time I tried it to sustain it, and it was too hard on my adrenals and I crashed. I'm actually glad I took the PI in the middle in part bc of that. This time has been much better than last year's attempt. Of course, throwing in HRT has kinda been a mixed bag, and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it going forward.

    That's awesome gz9gjg. Yes me too when I am grilling. Lately only on days off and if the weather is good. I just find I eat better with meals done up.

    On a more serious note, she is 25 and has autism. It has taken us a lot of years to get here from where we were, and I am super proud of her!

    P2D30-- no change today, 186.7. "Mama said there'll be days like this...."

    Well Lovelies, here I am again at VLCD2 and 198.6lbs. I managed to lose and maintain for years without much effort then COVID, deaths in my family, depression and anxiety landed some blows and I regained it all and then some. I tried the Ozempic/Mounjaro but neither worked - or at least didn't work as quickly/visibly as HCG. I'm planning a 30 day round that will have me rolling in to P3 on July 10; my birthday and a big holiday fall inside that window but I'm so tired of eating my feelings I'm not really worried about cheats/stalls. I now have two jobs, one from 7am to 3pm and the other from 3pm to 1am; add in travel time and I'm not going to get much sleep so that's the only thing I'm worried about. I may lurk more than I have in the past but journaling in this group is an important tool for me. Sending light to each of you!

    Round 1, P2: 187 to 168
    Round 1, P3: 166 stable

    Round 2, P2: 168 to 156
    Round 2, P3: 155 stable

    Round 3, P2: 163 to 149
    Round 3, P3: 149 and hopeful...

    Round 4, P2: 151 stopped mid-round, managed to stay between 148 and 150 for over three years.

    Round 5, P2: 203 and focused

    Round 1, P2: 187 to 168
    Round 1, P3: 166 stable

    Round 2, P2: 168 to 156
    Round 2, P3: 155 stable

    Round 3, P2: 163 to 149
    Round 3, P3: 149 and hopeful...

    Round 4, P2: 151 (not counting 7lb loading gain)
