I feel like I am so afraid of carbs, even good ones, that after P3 I just don't know how to eat in a way that leaves me satisfied with some variety and occasional treats but doesn't make me gain. There was someone on this thread that went straight from HCG into Macros in P3 back in March and her last post said that she continued to lose even in P3 and was eating carbs and plenty of calories. I'm really curious, and I'm ready to be done with this vicious cycle of gaining and losing. I'm so grateful for HCG but I'm tired of not being able to maintain. Part of it, of course, is allowing myself to be less aware of what I'm eating and then the creep starts. IDK.

    Pearly, 14 days seems like a long PI. If it were me, I would load one day just to make sure you don't experience that awful light-headed hunger and weakness that you suffer from.

    Just, enjoy P3! I'm nearly there with you....

    Pretty, glad to hear your daughter is feeling better, and good job hitting the 130's! P3 will be here before you know it!

    Jessie, congrats on the belt victory. I have given up belts. Even at my now-ideal weight (heavier than when I was younger) I just don't like the restriction around my middle!

    HCG, that is a sad story about your friend. So many people are struggling with addiction in this country, it is truly scary. It feels like an entire generation is being wiped out and their children will be lost too because their parents suffered from addiction when they were alive and couldn't parent properly. And then the kids lose their parents altogether from overdose and then are being cared for by Grandparents or in foster homes. Here in Ohio, its an epidemic.

    On that note, Happy Friday! Enjoy your weekend everyone
    Thanks! So glad to be back in the 130s! And hoping my daughter improves at least enough to go to school next week!

I don't want to be completely negative but I feel like I would have preferred for her to die of an illness vs. drug abuse. I feel bad for feeling that way but I just feel like it was such a waste of a good person and she had 2 young girls who now have no mother, no father and nowhere to go. I know people have tough situations but there are other ways to cope. I'm just trying to not feel like I could have done something. She felt alone and I hadn't talked to her in a while, so if I had continued talking to her throughout the years, would it have been any different?

    Ok, off my soapbox now
    Donít do that to yourself! Guilt will eat you alive. I try not to carry guilt about what I could have done for my bff as I was living out of state. So I have guilt for sure that I should have been here helping her, at every appointment, treatments, surgeries ect. She would not even tell me that she was terminally ill. She did not want me to worry ☹️. So I hearing that she was in hospice about 2 weeks before we moved back to where she lives and where we are from was a shock! Then I get here and sheís already incoherent which sucked even worse. And then I find out her house is just 5mins from our new house we moved into. But I was just too damn late! She has 4 kids she left behind. I know she knew I was there though when I went Ito hospice to say my final goodbye. Let me tell you it was less than 5mins in the room saying goodbye cause she did not want me to have to see her that way. She said she loves me and is sorry 😐. It took me about an hr to even find the strength to walk out of the hospice building cause I knew Iíd never see her again. She died just a few days later her parent said she had been waiting for me. Itís odd being the one left behind in this. I told her husband who I have known about 10 years now we have become close cause honestly besides her kids no one misses her like we do. She wasnít close to her family. But anyways I told him that idk which one of use got the crappy end of this deal here? People probably think I am the lucky one cause Iím still here (for now who knows what life will bring to me). But when she died so did I and I donít want to have to learn to be here without her. We were planning on being 80 raising hell in the old folks home. Then dying together kinda like the notebook but best friend style. Oh well we were still best friends for life, hers was just unfortunately cut short.


    Sorry for the long reply. I have no friends so it was nice to let it all out!!

    Pretty- congrats on making it to 130ís! Glad to hear your daughter is doing better.

    Hcg- so sorry to hear about your old BFF. That is so sad. Drugs are the one thing that scares my husband and I the most when it comes to our kids. They are still young but we hope they never get into them. We talk about how bad they are all the time to them. Fingers crossed they will be too scared to ever try them.

    Also, forgot to mention earlier, the other wonderful thing about P3....moisturizer! Felt SO good to slather my body head to toe in fatty lotions this morning!!
    Thanks!

    VCLD24. I was bouncing around again (and I was having more fatty salmon) so I decided to have beef again last night and was rewarded with a 0.8 lb drop. That brings me to 12 lbs in 24 days, exactly the daily average loss for HCG. On that math, in the next four days, I could lose 2 lbs? Yeah, probably not, but a girl can dream! I'm struggling to get through these last days and ready to be done. I've got six more days until P3...it seems like a long time. And I have a dinner party to give on Monday night. I would so love to have a glass of wine. But I won't. I'm too close to the end to take the chance. On the bright side, I have control of the menu, so I don't have to worry about the food!

    Hope everyone is doing well, staying strong and losing...

    Happy Saturday everyone! Another non scale victory. These shorts that I could barely pull up an d definitely not button last month now go on and button with ease! 🤗

    VCLD25 and down another 0.5 lb. That puts me 1.5 lb shy of where I would like to end this round in 3 days, but I'm good with wherever I land. Much more important, really, is P3 and P4 and. maintaining where I am. I ALWAYS go up a couple of lbs in P3 which I guess is normal for a lot of us.

    Beautiful weather here in the midwest. Here is hoping that people in the Houston area are OK.

    Hello everyone! I'm going into my 2nd week of P3 & so far I'm feeling pretty good. I've actually been on vacation since Thurs & it seems like I'm doing good, but tomorrow will be the "day of truth!" I'll be weighing myself. Ugh! Ok, who brings a scale on vacation with them? I know, I'm not believing I did that. I do Not want to gain.

    Looks like more will be joining me in P3 soon. I haven't figured out when my next round will be yet. Just happy my head is still in all of this.

    So sorry to hear about your losses (friend wise) Pretty & hcg....😥

    My battery is dying....catch u all later!

    Okie dokie smokie! It's tIIIIIIIIIIMe!

    I did not dose yesterday to load, but uh... there may have been cheesecake and peanut butter involved. So, I def got enough fat in! After staying at exactly 134 for about 2 weeks, I went up today to 135.2. If that is not a sign that it is time to get back to my round, not sure what is. So, dose today, and will load or not load according to hunger.

    I am a little overwhelmed. I got back from Convention on Tuesday and others who went are sharing all the poster board (think middle school science project) power point and poems the wrote about it for their reports. I finally unpacked YESTERDAY. I have my first report tonight and I was gonna take the program and hold up a couple things. YowZa. Not sure how many came back to a full on full time job and a 93 year old mother visiting, but I do feel under prepared! I am just printing stuff from the website, using the powerpoint ---it is awfully PINK, but hey, it's done!--and a video from International that was released and uh...hold up stuff. Gah!

    I was so tired I did rest a lot this weekend, just making meals for my Mom that she doesn't eat--One tuna salad sandwich fed her for two meals. I gave her two tiny slices of meatloaf made in a 1/4 size loaf pan and she ate half of one and was too full for cheese cake. So you know the rest of that story about who ate the REST of the cheesecake. Did I say GAH already?

    Then, like an idiot, I started a book around 9 pm when I got back from taking my Mom to my sisters for the week, and read until midnight. STOOPID ME. Probably why I am up, beyond the Cheesecake. I was too newly rested from being exhausted, so I did myself no favors. I am so tired today, I can barely sit up.

    But, I dosed today, and brought protein drinks, 3 g sugar, 30 g protein, to start my week. I was not up to making a salad. I don't LIKE protein drinks, but it will give me time to go sit in my car and nap for 30 minutes instead of taking time to eat salad for lunch. Now would be good, but it is only 8:41 so a little early for lunch.

    Onward! P

    Oh, I updated my ticker to show my previous round that I restarted a bit ago, as I was tired of looking at 4 pound lost 5 to go. I started it at what I was when I started in ... IDK. When I started.

    Pretty: Let it all out, sister! Sometimes typing feels just as good as talking to someone about it. I had that same hospice shock with my dad. He tried telling us he went on hospice to "get free meds" but we knew it wasn't due to that. He was on it about 2-3 months before he passed. I understand why people who are ill don't want their family/friends to see them like that or not have them worry but it does take precious time away that they could spend together. It's a double edged sword so everyone has to make that decision for themselves but it stinks when you find out so late in the game. I found out that my friend's step-dad won't even be having a funeral for her. He's the only one there besides her daughters. I'm considering getting their address and sending her daughters some old pictures I have of her from when we were growing up. I'm sure they have plenty of pictures but most of their lives she's been on drugs so I'm sure some pictures aren't so happy.

    I've been working out a little more but food-wise hasn't been the best. I'm just trucking along trying not to gain too much. I'll need another round either at the end of this year or maybe 1/1. That's a good time for it usually since everyone else is dieting.
    LDW: 152.2 from last round

    Starting weight: 156.0

    Okay. This is not going to work this week.

    Because my Mom, 93, is here visiting, every relative east of Kansas is coming this weekend to visit. I was going to be hosting everyone until my Aunt who is in a wheelchair decided to come, too, and my house is not handicap accessible. That is, my bathroom doors are too narrow for her to get in. So, all transferred to my sister's much bigger house, and although most are staying with other relatives and hotels, she is feeding everyone (12 to 16 at a time, not counting her own family of 5 and oh yeah, me!) and reached out today with menus asking for my help, which of course, I am happy to do.

    Except she has me down for FOUR DESSERTS and nut brunch breads. Also a salad and roasted vegetables, but FOUR DESSERTS. I am not that good of a person to create my Grandma's lemon bars, my famous buttermilk chocolate cake with fudge frosting, biscochitos and lemon sorbet, and my version of deluxe chocolate chip cookies... and not eat them! Not gonna happen. I am thrilled to do the baking as I NEVER get to anymore. I LOVE to bake. To be truthful, I'm a little afraid of making the lemon bars as they can be tricky and I haven't made them in probably a decade. But! I WANT to. But I know me. I will waste the week if I try to stay on P2. Because I won't not eat some! I won't go crazy, but I am not gonna make them and not eat any!

    Gah!

    So, not sure if I can restart this round or will have to do a full p3/p4 and come back later, but NOT going to continue until the crowd clears. I'll let ya know how it goes.
    Lol

    sheesh.

    OnWARD
