Thread: Lovely Losers 2019 - Optimistic in OCTOBER!!!

  1. #13
    P3 Day 7. I was very concerned at my weight after returning from Seattle until I realized that I was still within my window, at 1.8 lb over LIW. So, that was a relief. But then I woke this morning to 2.7 lbs over LIW! Now, this is what happens. I have to remember that I ate late last evening and I was really thirsty and that always affects my morning weigh-in. So, I'm going to weigh later this morning to see if I lose some of the fluid I might be retaining.

    Blue: I would LOVE to be under my LIW! Enjoy that...

    Pretty, glad to hear that your daughter is feeling better and headed back to school.

    Almost Friday!

    Mo, traveling always throws me off for several days. Sometimes I'm down and hey, yay! and then I go up! hey, no! Other times I come back up and then, hey, yay! I'm down. Ugh. I think my body just bounces a bit when I travel. Sleep sleep sleep and getting back into a routine usually takes care of it! Hang in and don't panic!

    I did not get a 3-pound woosh today, lol, but I got a POUND, which I will take for sure! Our Emeritus Lovely, the intrepid Kansas, called this a pound day. She would call for one a day before and see how many of us could get one. Woot! Why not! Let's all have a Pound Day either tomorrow or Saturday

    I’m in for the pound day Pearly! I want one!!

    Good morning Lovelies and TGIF! My weight went up a little since the beginning of the week but I’m still under LIW...barely...point 2 under to be exact but I will take it! I’m making chili today for a chili cook off fundraiser at my daughters school. It’s going to be crazy hot today, 97 degrees! 97 degrees in October! Been like that all week. Not looking forward to hanging out at the chili cook off in this heat. Imagine eating spicy chili in sweltering heat. Sound like fun, eh?! It’s supposed to finally cool down some starting tomorrow, so really looking forward to that. I hope everyone is doing well and has a great weekend!

    Good morning, Lovelies!

    Hope TESS cooperates with ya'all!

    Well, okay, maybe TOMORROW will be my next Pound Day! I'm up a smidge, point two, instead of down. Well, I always tell everyone ya can't lose Every Day, so guess I'll have to remind myself, too.

    My Mom is coming for the weekend, giving my sister some respite, as she has had her two full weeks. We had so much company come in last weekend, the visits outgrew my place. I still have two cousins plus inlaws coming to see her this week, but I can handle 4 visitors. 12 was maxing me out!

    I really, really need to be done with this soon. I need to transition on Wednesday to be in P3 to travel again and a week of work meetings out of town. I do NOT want to continue this round again! LOL. NOOOOOOO. So, gotta get some more pound days in. But I am nothing if not intrepid. I will carry on as long as I need to, even if I have to take P3/P4 protocol time and then come back. I truly hate being old, but there is nothing I can do about that. But I do have some control over being old and chubby. Not everyone can control that, due to health conditions, situations, etc. so I can't sit here and complain. I count my blessings, which include hcg and this Forum. I spent a lot of years dieting and just seeing my weight go up up up instead of down and turning into a hermit because of it, and some other disappointments. I admit I have never really gotten back to being any kind of a social person since, so thank goodness for all of you to have someone to talk to!

    Several of you chimed in about having only a few friends. I do have my family, PTL, but I moved here 14 years ago and have never made one friend. Lots of nice acquaintances, but not a friend. I was so blessed other places with wonderful groups of friends that I never imagined being this isolated. I have made some wonderful friends on this Forum over the years (I see you, you Lovely Lurkers!) so just wanted to say thank you!

    Oh, man I hate to post back to back even the next day. Sorry!

    But Iím down 1.4! Thatís a BIG Pound Day!! I did weigh at 8:30 instead of 6:30 so could kick back upon Monday.

    I just wanted to post to encourage any of you still on P2: Trust the process. Donít let small disappointments ruin your day or make you give up. Beware of making decisions based on Fear instead of Courage.

    Itís been slow, but Iím at 130.8 today. Canít change ticker from my phone. But my goal is near! Wheeeeeee!


    Onward! P

    Can I complain for a minute? When I was younger and childless I used to lose weight without too much problem, even when my kids were babies I lost weiht if not easily at least steadily, and mainly because I didn't have to worry about what to feed THEM! It is easy enough to just avoud food if you don't have to think about anything but feeding yourself. Even when I am not trying to lose weight feeding my picky kids is a PITA, and stressful, I have a child that is small and skinny and I am so afraid he is stunting his own growth because he refuses so much food.
    I am miserable, I can't make anyone happy, especially not myself, all I want is the best for everyone but no matter how much effort I put in I fail at all of it. My husband says he will be supportive, but if I don't initiate meals no one eats until suddenly some famished person starts talking about food.

    If I am forced to be around food I can't have, and can't mostly avoid it, I will eventually cave, which is what keeps happening, every few days I screw up, and I am so filled with disgust and self loathing.

    If anyone has insightful words, I would be grateful, if I am being a bummer sorry, don't mean to be, I am just a bummer.

    I just want to lose 20 pounds. That's it.

    Of course you can complain!
    One thing you might want to try... as you're prepping foods for others while doing this diet, remember - you know what that tastes like and you can go a few weeks without it. That helps me get through.
    I have found that my tastes change and a lot of the food I used to like now tastes way too sweet to me. So you may get used to not having some of those foods and be fine not eating them as much.
    Hang in there!

    P3 Day 9. I have been within the 2 lb window from LIW for the last week. Also, tracking what I eat and calories, etc because I want to know how much I can actually eat and not gain. I should be able to eat about 2000 calories, according to macro calculators, but that seems scary high. I have actually been staying somewhere between 1,600 and about 1,900 and did okay until last night when I logged and finished my dinner and calculated about 1,600 calories for the day...then proceeded to nibble on things until bedtime...and not log any of it. Probably had too many salty foods (P3) as well as calories and woke up 3 lbs over LIW! Serves me right. I weighed again later in the morning after peeing a bunch and was only 2.3 over LIW. So today I am doing a sort of modified steak day: only eating dinner, steak, small salad and some red wine (about 800 calories). If I drop back down under my 2 lb window then I feel like I will know that is the weight I should be able to stay at (ie, where I am stabilizing). That would be good news, but I really have to stop myself from the after-dinner nibbling. It gets me every time. Which is why I have to keep doing rounds. Argghh!

    Pearly, I really hate having to socialize when I can't eat. Like you, I can do it. But its no fun. You are so close to your goal, good for you sticking with it.

    Lakinapook, I really feel for you. Being responsible for preparing food you can't eat is very, very hard. I find that even if it is something I don't particularly like, I want it because I can't have it. And picky eaters--the worst. Something I learned from my mother (she was a nutritionist at a children's hospital) when my kids were young, is that children will not starve themselves. Even when they are picky eaters, they will somehow manage to get the calories they need to keep growing. However, since your child seems excessively skinny and small, maybe seeing your child's doctor could help alleviate your worry? It sounds like you are really stressed and here you are trying to do something good for yourself and it's not working, making you feel worse. Keep coming here and telling us what is happening, and maybe we can give you some suggestions. I'm sure you have already tried a lot of things. Have you thought about pre-cooking meals for the family and freezing them for when you are on HCG? IDK, so easy to say, and much harder to do when you have all the busy chaos of family life going on. But, don't give up! You are important to your family and that means taking care of yourself first.

    Beautiful sunny day here in the midwest! Have a great weekend everyone...

    Hi, everyone! Today is P3D21, its went by SO fast! LIW 184.4#, this morning's weight? .....181.6#!!! I've been staying between 181.8 and 183.6, I thinks that's been pretty darn stable. Got more odds and ends packed, will be using the oddball foodstuff this week. Meals our last week tend to be, shall we day, interesting? hee hee. We shut everything down when we leave, so all perishables are either eaten or thrown away.

    No actual plans for adding sugar/starch, P3 and I could live quite happily together for a very long time. We shall just see how the week goes

    blue, you have had such an awesome round this time. It was always a dream of mine to finish out a P3 under LIW, but that little gift never happened for me. You must be feeling awesome! Hope all goes well with your move.

    Well, some days better than others. my mom had a fall—spent the night in the hospital-broken tailbone, dehydration, low blood pressure—wild day wild night. I got about 90 minutes sleep. Planning to rotate w my sister who will come for the day when she gets kids off to school.

    I should head to work but may go home and sleep a couple of hours first.

    Not weighing! Lol

    Slept 3 hours and weighed. What was I thinking? TESS is mean. After flashing 129.8 at me, which would have helped my mood considerably, she changed her mind and went to 131.2, which is where I was yesterday and then 130.8, which was where I was on Saturday, before settling on 131.4. WHOT? Okay, that's just throwing random numbers at me. I must have caught her watching soap operas and and eating bonbons when she thought I was at work.

    Since it was already noon before i was up, I skipped my dose today. It may be a skip day, it may be my last dose was yesterday. I'll just have to see what happens next! P
