    Thanks for being there all! You have saved my mood. I was so devasted this morning. My mom passed away unexpectedly at the end of august and i went from having 10 pounds i wanted to lose to suddenly being 25 overweight. I now know this was the worst time to do this diet; my sad loss reflects that as well. However, even if i stabilize where i am today, thats 10 pounds down. So, thats something!
    Ill check in tomorrow and let you know what the scale says..
    Thanks everyone! Hang in there with the holidays.
    I'm sorry about your mom. It's good you are celebrating the 10 lbs down! Congrats!

    Wow, lots of action the past couple of days!

    Rk, Linder- thx for the encouragement!
    Pearly- my heart goes out to you, GF! 💗 Praying for strength for you & your sisters & of course, mom.....
    Chawna- yes, enjoy those fats! I will say on the day I gained, I to indulged in a glass of wine (not 3 lbs though). I just can't do that w/o gaining! 😟 I also try & only add foods a little @ time, but this time I really didn't.

    Welp another Christmas dinner tonight.....

    Hoping to Stay Focused! 😳
    Wow congrats on being under LIW!!

    Thank you rkthin! Right after I wrote a year ago, I had a lot of family members go through ongoing serious health issues, and it isn't over, but all except one with cancer are in remission now. One more distant relative will be leaving us soon. The other issues are chronic and seem to be lifelong struggles, but I am thankful they are alive. I can't believe how much happened all at once. I had to let go of keeping up with a lot of things, and I've missed all of you.

    I've stayed in p3 eating all this time. I wanted to do keto, but I stayed in low carb strict Atkins induction mode - without the dairy. Every time I try to add cheese, nuts, pork rinds and bacon, I gain rapidly. Some of it might be inflammation, but that might suggest I should avoid those foods. I just eat 2 meals of meat and vegetables. No fruit or dairy, no snacking, and I still gain. I'm doing well, but weight wise I have gained back a lot of lbs. On the bright side I didn't gain all of it, and that is encouraging. I'll do a weight update, and don't let my gains discourage those who don't know that I have a metabolic issue that makes weight loss seem impossible. Hcg was my saving grace! I'm not going to start P2 yet, but I'm considering figuring out keto and transitioning to that for a while because I notice I do best with more fat. I just didn't feel like I could take the time to do all the calculations, but I want to try now. It's simple to eat protein and fat with veggies, but I don't want to go on this way.

    I always cringe when I step on the scale after a steak day loss. So, when I stepped on this morning & I was only up .2, I was ecstatic! 😁 that was even after a Christmas dinner last night! I tried to stay low carb & it seems to have worked.

    Beachy- Wow, so sorry to hear you are struggling in many areas. The food situation can really get you discouraged as well. 😣 That always messes with how I view myself, although I shouldn't let it, & has an effect with how I may cope w/everyday life.

    Perhaps reaching out to one of the "coaches" here can help. You can go over your food choices & see what could be making you gain or stop you from losing.
    That is sure a lot of foods that you should be able to eat w/o gaining- at least they are for me in P3. I was able to eat a variety of fruits w/o probs as well.

    Good luck & try hard not to be to discouraged as it can cause you to slide down a "slippery slope."
    This is the perfect place for you to come to get encouragement & tips.

    Until then, Stay Focused! 😳

    Beachy, do you exercise? Perhaps walking or some sort of aerobic activity can increase your metabolism & help burn off some calories. Weight lifting can also increase your muscle mass (I know muscle weighs more) as well as revving up your metabolism.

    Hello all!

    I'm new to the forum and started my 3rd round on Thanksgiving, I'm currently at a stall and super frustrated but I think it's my fault because I cheated on Friday and believe I'm paying the consequences for it. I did an apple day yesterday and I'm still at the same weight I've been since Saturday. How long does a stall usually lasts. I almost feel like giving up and throwing in the towel but I don't wanna waste my money. So far I've lost 8lbs looking to lose another 22lbs.

    Good morning! I weighed in this am to a .8 gain. Im on day 2 of p3 and 3.8 above ldw...i think im going to only eat p2 veggies today and salmon and crab for protein. Also, im going to try that inflammation shake; has anyone had it before?
    If i dont drop after today, i plan to do a correction day. However, i only eat seafood so not sure how to go about it...
    Beachy- im sorry you are struggling. hang in there and keep writing and reading on this forum. It helps so much.

    Keke28- stalls are not uncommon and can apparently go for over a week sometimes. Drink LOTS of water. Take a detox bath. These things helped me break my stalls. 8 pounds since Thanksgiving sounds like a pretty good loss to me!

    Good morning, Lovelies.

    Beachy, I hope you're able to get a handle on that metabolic issue. I can relate to some extent. It's so frustrating being afraid to eat the tiniest little thing.

    Gemgirl, congrats on your day-after-steak-day weight! lol

    keke28, welcome! I've had some week-long stalls before. You need to trust that the HCG is working, even when the scale doesn't show it. Your cells are just holding onto some extra water, which will eventually WHOOSH away.

    chawna, I haven't tried the shake, but I understand your frustration in P3. The "steak day" key seems to be that you're fasting all day, then eating high protein w/ a little fat, followed by the apple or tomato. I know of some who have had success with chicken thighs or eggs. So if you decide to do a correction day, substituting seafood may work for you.

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Good Morning Lovelies,

    LinderLou: your body is probably reshaping. I know you will have a big loss soon!
    Kar: I am also a Purell fan, my queen ha ha!
    Chawna: So Sorry about the loss of your mom. I don't consider this the worst time to do the diet--especially when you consider this is the time of year when most people (especially me) gain! So 10 pounds down is not bad! At Least we are not in the gaining mode!
    GemGirl: Great job on your steak day! Nice that you are still in your window after a Christmas diner! That is wonderful!
    Beachy: I'm so sorry it sounds like you have had a very tough time of it. Grammy always recommended, "The Fast Metabolism Diet" by Haylie Pomroy to fix any lingering issues of "Carb and other Sensitivity" like you (and I in the past) had. I got her book out of the library and it really helped me when I was on the "meat and veggies or I gain" wagon. Grammy has also recommended "Trim Healthy Momma" but I never tried that. Think about giving one of those plans a whril? Also, and probably a better idea is maybe start a new thread and ask Leez what to do? I know others have faced this, and another girlfriend of mine after HCG several rounds and that issue also did Haylie's book with great results. Don't give up! Others have faced this and there are solutions out there. We don't have to live like that.

    Welcome KeKe! Try not to cheat. Often people cheat because their dose is slightly off and they are hungry. It always takes me several days of not losing after a cheat to get losing again. If you are cheating because you are hungry, then your dose is slightly off and I would try to get help from the veterans regarding your dose on the other threads. ( I do hHCG and so I am not able to help). For what it's worth, I have found Being on HCG was a good time to work out my own emotional eating issues and get past them. But I suspect it is a dosing issue. Apple Days, Dr Simeons says are more for psychological benefit and I have never found them to work personally. I prefer Detox baths and Inflammation smoothies. Also, most rounds I end up in at least one stall, even with no cheating, and I notice I lose inches even though the scale does not move. It is frustrating but it will pass. Don't give up!

    AFM: The scale is moving better than my previous rounds, and I am doing nothing different....So it makes no sense to me but I am grateful for a .7 lb loss today. I wish I could figure out why my losses are so much better for any future rounds, but I am not doing anything differently. I was not feeling well yesterday, just pooped. I don't know if it was the diet, the holiday stress, or my family's sick people's germs trying to get me. Today I feel better! I'm way behind but moving forward...at a snail's pace.

    Onward as Dear Pearly says.

    Have a great day!

    Wow RK - you are doing great! Keep up the great work! I am trying to catch up with you. Glad you're feeling better today. Don't let those germs catch you!

    Beachy - so sorry to hear of your troubles. I like RK's ideas about following a plan to help your metabolism. I've not tried those myself, but have read many success stories about people who have.

    Keke - Welcome! Yes, unfortunately stalls are all part of the process. I've had plenty of those myself. So, even though the scale doesn't move, the inches probably are. The beauty of this protocol is that you lose inches in places that no other diet enables you to! Don't give up!

    Kar - Thanks for all your good advice and support! Hope your maintenance (you're in P3, right?) is going well. And hope you're over your illness soon.

    Chawna - sorry about the loss of your mom. While it doesn't sound like the best time to be doing a diet, it does give you an opportunity to take care of YOU. 10 pounds lost is much better than 10 pounds gained ;-)

    Gem - Good job on keeping your steak day loss! And braving a Christmas dinner on top of that. Good for you! I'm getting better at navigating my way through "regular" food meals and just sticking with low carb options in P3/P4. P2 is a little harder to do!

    Everyone else - hope things are going well. This thread is getting busy again, so I've lost track a bit...

    AFM: Down 0.3 this morning on P2D21, so I'm at the halfway point, more or less. Still about 1 pound above where I was before the beginning of my PI and 2.5 pound gain, but I am zeroing in on continuing my downward journey. I've got 19 more days to go and feeling like I can stick with it. I don't measure, but I can feel the inches coming off. My pants are baggy!

    Have a great rest of your week everyone!

    Thanks LinderLou! It's actually P4D14 for me. I'm (oddly) only 0.8 over LDW. Not near goal, but much better than where I started my last round.

    Well, that's how it's supposed to work! Great job on holding steady.
