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

    You know you best! Do whatever is right for you!

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.
    That is so true and maybe I was little naive myself to believe that she would be ok a little longer. It sucks cause if I make it to 80 Iíll still be like damn I really wish she was here look at all these years we missed together. Thatís another 50 yrs away but my goodness I canít believe sheís gone still. So I just stay in contact with her kids and make sure our kids hang out together. I know she would do the same.

    I really do! Thanks! And I am trying to focus on how far I have come which helps! Cause after P3 I want to get back to the 120s on my own I donít want to do another round.

    Hello ladies! I was so excited to see that I was still below my LDW weight this morn after 2 weeks of P3! A huge sigh of relief esp since I'm on vacation. 👐

    Wow Pearly, I would have to have extreme willpower! I would have to decline or buy desserts out. At least i wouldn't have to worry about lickin the spoon alot!

    Keep going fellow losers!

    On P3 x 2wks
    R1 - 14lbs

    VLC start date 7/29/19

    Yeah, I may have been panicking a little. Maybe I can handle the cookies and hit up Costco for a cake and a pie. They make good ones, but they don't tempt me. If I make cookies, I will EAT cookies, but maybe if I don't go hog wild... ay yi yi yi yi yi...

    Pearly, if it were me I would buy 3 desserts and then make a yummy P3 friendly dessert that I could eat. Carolyn Ketchum has lots of great low carb sugar free dessert recipes.

    I had to do a steak day yesterday. Back at LIW today. Assuming all is well on the scale tmw I plan to add dairy. Still waiting for that belated P2 whoosh to happen

    I guess I will just jump in here... Hi everyone!!! Nice to see a few familiar faces/names active! I have been MIA since a brief post in January, and my scale really shows it! I regained 50 of the 70 pounds I lost last year. It has been a rough year with pain, and several changes of medication. My tendency is to "feed the pain", plus any anti-inflammatory meds cause massive fluid gains (6-9 pounds overnight, and up to 20 pounds over a few weeks if I keep taking them!) I don't have the right genetics to benefit from most pain meds, leaving me with just Tylenol and Lyrica (which causes weight gain, but is a must for my permanent nerve damage from a spinal defect.) I was sad to regain the first 20, then 30, and now have been staying at the 245-250 pound mark for a few months. I am ready to get back on my hhcg and get these pounds back off, get back into my clothes, and start feeling good about myself again (right now, for taking control again...)

    I loaded over the weekend and started the VLCD today. Just got home from my typical 16 hour Monday, with the exciting exception of picking up our "new to us" car in between jobs. We have been without a vehicle for over a month, so it is a big deal! Still borrowing daughter's car for the few days each week that we both work, but at least I have a car when I need to go somewhere or want to run to the market. She is leaving her car with us when she goes back overseas at the end of November, so we won't be picking up a second vehicle until she returns in March.

    I am sticking to the basics, mostly OP, with some V-8 for convenience on my long days. Also, I am using pears this first few days in order to use some up and until I get to the store to buy some organic apples. Normally, I would have gone in my "between jobs time" today. Now it will be Wednesday, as our local market is quite expensive for organic and limited options. I have 5 days worth of chicken cooked, some fish ready to cook tomorrow, and some super lean grass fed ground beef in the freezer for any cravings for chili. I also picked up a couple heads of cauliflower, one of my off protocol options I allow myself.

    Here are my stats:

    Preloading Weight: 250.6
    End of loading Wt: 253.8
    VLCD2:
    Hey, I'm Roni (Ronnie) I bought a ticket on the Onederland Express! Come along and enjoy the ride!



    Restarting Round 3

    **** Original Protocol ****
    Round 1 LDW: 240.8 (-31.4)
    Round 2 LDW: 230.6 (-41.6)
    Weight loss totals include loading weight from Round 1 only.

    VCLD27. This is last injection day and I'm now at 152.3. I wanted 151.0 but oh well. This is more or less my ideal weight so it gets really hard to get these last few lbs off. I'm 5' 9" and back when I was 5' 10" (I've shrunk) I was in the 140's. I'm too old to be that weight anymore: 1. I can't stay there, it's just too hard and restrictive and 2. my skin sags and is all crepey on my arms (and of course everywhere else but fortunately not visible to anyone else) and so I need that bit of fat to keep the skin stretched out, haha. So, I have two days of transition and start P3 on Friday morning as I head off to Seattle for the weekend. My main concern after P2, of course, is to maintain my losses. This P3 and P4 I am going to work really hard to nail down a routine that allows me to have some of the foods that I love and not get that creeping gain.

    Pearly. Desserts. Enough said. Good luck

    Gem, great job staying stable. On vacation no less!

    Just, I'm chasing you into P3... fingers crossed for your belated whoosh!

    Tightwad, welcome back. There is something magical about starting P2 with a clean slate. How long of a round will you be doing?

    Good morning, everyone! Been MIA for a bit, have been coming down with a nasty dang cold. Thought it felt like the flu at first, but it seems to have settled in as a cold. That's okay, guess that's better than the flu, right? Geesh

    I'll catch up with personals, just wanted to send a quick update. P3D10, LIW 184.4# and sitting below that still at 183.2#. I'm sure once this passes, it'll be lower. I feel like I was hit by a freight train, just ache all over, stuffed up, feverish - though not as bad as yesterday. Okay, time for a second coffee. I'll catch up later.

    Pearly: I've always been told that, if you're going to have a dessert, you may as well go for it. Well, that's what they say about ice cream at least lol If you can't resist temptation and/or don't want to right now, go for it. You know the consequences but how often do you see your whole family? I know family shouldn't be all about food but it's just a fact that it is. It's a celebration!

    Pretty: I do have one best friend (and really no other friends) so if anything happened to her I'd be completely lost. She and I don't even hang out much at all anymore because of distance but when we do it's like we just hung out the week before. I hope you find at least one person who you can hang out with. It gets really lonely only having family to be around. Not that it's bad...but sometimes you need a break from everything.
    LDW: 152.2 from last round

    New round
    Starting weight: 156.0
    Current weight: 146.8
    LDW: 147.0

    Tight! Good to hear from you! It's a roller coaster, isn't it, but then, isn't life?

    Thanks Pretty, Pro, Mo, Just, Gem et al. Sorry about the whining. I have decided to stick with it, have a cookie or two when the time comes, and freeze myself my own little stash for later. I won't feel quite as deprived. Down a bit from yesterday, and did okay all day. Big Pretty Cupcakes at a meeting last night and I barely glanced at them. Oooh and awed about how pretty to the hostess, got myself a glass of water and wandered off. Yeah, I can do this.

    I am at a deep, deep set point years in the making, so if I don't see progress in soon, I'll have to do a true P3 and P4 and come back later. Its possible the only way I will get past this is to come at it with a good Week 1, which I am not getting by extending a round. If I play bounce a pound for a week, not worth it. I did three weeks, was off for about 3 and gained four pounds back of the barely 10 I lost, hopped back on for two weeks, so I really don't have a lot of days left without pushing it anyway. This week is really week 6 and I am probably just wasting perfectly good hcg!

    Onward!

    Yes I am lost without her itís so weird being without her kinda like a long dragged out eerie dream that I cannot wake up from even though I desperately want to! I donít think I will make another friend in my lifetime though. I already had the ultimate friendship anything else wouldnít compare so why try? Plus I donít see myself making a best friend at the age of 30 most my age already have their BFF and tight circle. Furthermore I am socially awkward as if the above wasnít enough lol.
