    Little wiggle room here, down .5. I'll enjoy it for today before it goes bye bye.

    I'm P3 food shopping after my 9am vaccine appt. On a Saturday. What madness will face me? Stocking up on chicken thighs, watermelon, Bibb lettuce for wraps and all the beef. I am the sentient Arby's. And pork chops! Cauliflower. I need to smell the 1/2 and 1/2 before I leave the house. It's got history. I'm going to be a good girl and hold off on cheeses for a couple days. That there is a slippery slope for me.

    I love all the NSV's and jeans discussion. I bought a pair of white jeans last summer and never wore them, tried them on yesterday and they fit. On a scale of 1 to hubba hubba, they looked "hey now!".

    I also tried on a swimsuit and am so out of shape, I pulled a muscle in my side trying to get it on. Still a win. It counted as excercise, right? It looked pretty good if you ignore the sharpei knees.

    Dubbles, I love Macy's especially their dresses. And a size 10! You get a hubba hubba for that!

    Msstrong, chickens, I love it! I live in a neighborhood where we can't have them. But did as a child and when I was married. What fun they were.

    Phoebe, so happy for you and this awesome roll you are on. Come on #10 is right!

    Pearly, I was crazy about InDesign at my older company. It helps so much to have instruction, huge time saver. #bestauntie

    JDG, when you try your super short round, I hope you will let us know how it's going. Reminds me of the hcg cycling craze we went through in the early 2010's. There's not a lot of info on the threads about the experience, it's mostly arguing. What I appreciate about this group is you all hang in there, good , bad and ugly. Any reportage on P3 and P4 is so helpful.

    Gotta head out soon for the vaxxing. I need to look "check, please" for my armed service eye candy. Check please is a little above hey now and almost a hubba hubba.

    Happy Saturday all.... Tracy, thanks for the chuckles!! haha...you crack me up! Let us know how the eye candy was and glad you have a little wiggle room!! I was down .8 today...whoop, whoop.. finally hit the 10# mark, 10.7 to be exact! Thank goodenss... I am honestly so afraid to step on that scale every morning! This weekend and the next 3 days is going to be a HUGE challenge for me. My sister n law and her family are coming down from WA in their RV to visit us and my other brother and sister n law. She loves to drink and I am sure the food will be o'plenty. They are staying at my sister n laws house, I am pretty sure because I told her I wasn't drinking because trying to fit in the dress...so I think she will respect that but I need to hold steady!! I can't wait to see my 2 nieces and nefew though!! AND..... I will know what puppy will be our furever baby on Monday evening so I am super excited for that!! We were the last one to put the deposit down for a female in the litter so we get last pick... which to me just fine! How do you possible pick a puppy when you have 5 sitting there...nope... this is going to be so much bettter and hopefully she will heal the hole in my daughters' and my heart!!

    Lovely Losers 2021- MAKING IT in May!

    Oh Saturday! My favorite. Usually my nephew stays for a sleepover on Friday nights and then helps with chores on Saturday mornings. I love that, and it lets my sistersí family sleep in as heís a 6:00 AM riser. But he asked if he could come Saturday night this week, so it was auntie P. Who got to sleep in!

    I was still up only a half an hour later than usual, so I think my weigh in is accurate.

    How shall I put this?

    GOAL!!!!

    Actually my scale said 129.8 and I was 130.6 Yesterday, but TESS said I was down .6. That darn rounding Up thing. But I saw the number! Canít fool me!

    Iím still hanging in there today and tomorrow, And transition days. I donít expect to lose more or want to particularly, although having 130 as the TOP of my window... No,Letís not get crazy.

    I actually thought I really blew it yesterday. I did fine at IHOP, they didnít even have cottage cheese, so I had 2 over easy eggs, four slices of tomato that you could see through and a small hamburger patty. It was actually really good!

    But about 11 AM before I left, I thought maybe I should armor myself in case someone said ďdo you want these pancakes?Ē So I found a very small yogurt in the back of the fridge that advertised only two carbs. I forgot to read the rest of the label. It said keto friendly, and while it was low carb it was 200 cal and 1700 g of fat. No I said that wrong it was 17 g of fat. Just seemed like 1700 when I was reading it!

    So with myEggs and hamburger patty I had all my calories and then some for the day. By 2 PM.

    And of course I had to have some thing for dinner although I made myself wait until after 7:30 PM. I was over 100 cal over for the day in my protein. But I only had 16 carbsOut of 30, so maybe that helped. 33 out of 30 g of fat total so. that had me worried. I will beSuper vigilant today and hope I donít get blow back tomorrow.

    But Iím so pumped. Tracy I dug out my Boom Chicka Chicka Undies that I havenít worn in over a year. Only I know that on the outside Iím a 68 year old little old lady but underneathó hey there at the very least. LOL.

    Onward everybody. If Pearly Mae can do it, so can you!!

    P

    PS. Little Penny is not doing so great. Antibiotics helped for the first two days, but sheís slept most of the week, and isnít eating. She accepted a few little pieces of roast beef that had medicine in the middle, but I found it urped up later in the day, so I had to give her medicine over again ground up to powder and dissolved in water with an eyedropper. I put out some yogurt thinking she might lick some of that and it would feel good on her throat, but she hasnít touched it. I sort of expected to find my other dog with a sticky beard, but she hasnít touched it either so maybe itís just the yogurt. We have an appointment first thing Monday morning, and maybe they can give her a shot of something that will put her back on her little feet.
    Maybe. She Is my little athlete so it is hard to see her listless and sleep all day.

    P3 Day 4

    Tracy, I took my 14yo in two days ago and can attest to the eye candy! Hope your vax goes well and you are not too sick after.

    Phoebe, hope the weekend goes well. Yay on the loss! Hope the puppy just adores you right away!

    Polly, I am so sorry Penny is not doing well again. So hard. GOAL though! How awesome is that!! Congratulations!

    AFM, down to 165.6. Weird scale. This is 0.2 below my 2nd NDD. Weird but I'll take it. Come to think of it, I did weigh with my workout shoes on yesterday. Even though they are barefoot shoes, they do weigh something. Chicks are doing great and survived the night. These were from a local place so no shipping from across the country and I expected them to live.

    Gotta get the yad work in before the rain next week! Have a good weekend!

    Pearly, wahoo to making it to GOAL! And to boom chicka chicka undies! You sexy thang!

    Dubs, loading for you this weekend, right? Have fun!

    Tracy, hooray for some wiggle room. And GREAT job getting some exercise in while trying on that swimsuit lol!

    Strong, I think you should keep the fruits while in P3.


    So was up .2 today putting me 2 lbs above LDW (angry face), but I drank 3 glasses of red wine last night and was up drinking a lot of water during the night so I think that might have had something to do with TESS. I’m not as good a drinker as I used to be. I was an expert drinker when I was younger

    I will keep everyone updated when I do the short round next month. I’m not looking at it at all like a “normal” round. I’m at goal weight wise. My idea of doing the short round is I will do it immediately after our vacation, in fact, I will take pellets and load last 2 days of vacation, so my very short P2 will start immediately upon return. I always gain a couple pounds or so while on vacation. My idea is to immediately get those gains off before they have time to “stick”. It will also help to quickly “reset” my eating habits as I also tend to have a hard time getting back on track after enjoying myself on vacation. This is my thinking anyway. I’m totally making all this up so no idea if it will work or not. This is not something I think I would try if not at goal. If this works I see it as being a great tool to use when needed and hopefully to prevent having to do a longer round later on.

    My plan is to stick what has worked for me for years: keto. I have a little fruit during the summer but not much, and nothing during winter unless an orange is calling out to me.

    I bet the .2 is gone tomorrow!
    Keep us posted on your experiment. The only thing I can think of is that you could run into a lack of stabilizing which would be a drag since you are at goal. Maybe this time you won't gain too much and a few days on P3 or so could bring you back down. Just my penny's worthof thought!

    Pearly, I'm adding a boom chicka chicka level! And I'm so sorry to hear your update on Penny. Our pets bring us so much joy and give us back the same.

    I'm 72 hours DONE today. HcG leaves my body pretty quickly and the last 12 hours awake are brutal for me. I obsessed over what I could nosh on last night that wouldn't do too much damage and finally just forced myself to bed with sleepy tea. Woke up to another .5 down, 1lb under LDW. And proud of myself for not cracking. This was my best behaved round ever but with the poorest losses. My average daily loss was .38 per day. Ack!

    No ill effects from vax #2. Just super sleepy right after. Looking forward to a quiet day today and meal prep.


    I was convinced I'd wake up starving but I feel fine. Kitchen is stocked, hid the grissini haul behind the instapot and I'm ready for the next phase. This is when I don't eat enough so I'm mindful of that now. Not eating has caused me to gain in the past on P3 and P4. The creep.

    Have a Va Va Va Voom day!

    P3 Day 5

    165.6 again today. Chicks are doing great and we took them outside to eat some bugs. Coop still in progress but we have time before they can go in there anyway. No rush. Almost done with the yard cleaning. It looks gorgeous. Spring gardens are so lush!

    I think I found my groove eating-wise. Each meal is satisfying. I am not counting or calculating so that is a huge improvement. Today I think I will add a slice of keto bread and see if I tolerate it. I did order some more granola to see if I can tolerate that. It was so delicious in my morning yogurt.

    Tracy, happy P3!!!

    Happy Sunday, everyone!

    Starbucks nice loss!! woohoo!! You are rocking this!!

    Tracy happy p3 eating girl!! Glad you have even more wiggle room!

    mrsstrong good foryou not counting calories and finding your groove! Must feel great! Seems like you found a set point! How many days have you been the same weight?

    As for me, down .3 today for an even 11#'s. I did not cave to alcohol yesterday, today they are all coming over to our house to swim in the pool and have a bbq... I can control what I have much easier at my own house so crossing my fingers!! Plus both of my sister n law were super supportive. My visiting sister n law told me that the problem with having one drink is that your inhabitions fly out the window and you may find yourself having another then eating off plan..

    Well time for coffee and headed to the grocery store shorty.

    Lovely Losers 2021- MAKING IT in May!

    Looking good, every buddy!

    Traci, Iím 72 hours behind you. Will hit P3 on Wednesday a.m. Boy am I looking forward to it!

    Today is last dose weight day! Iím at 130.2. I could kick Tess. Sheís mean. Friday I was at 131.6. Yesterday the scale stopped at 129.8, and then popped to 130 even. Then TESS told me I had lost 1.6. So 130 great. Today she showed me yesterdayís weight is 129.8 and that I gained .4. Come on! She canít have a both ways, can she??? I wish I could afford a doctor scale that wouldnít talk to me.

    Still it looks like going back to P2 after a three week PI was well worth it. I did 13 days and two days load, and Iím down 8.2. Thatís as good as the original part of the round.

    I sure bounced around during the last parts of the P3, and even hit in the 133Ďs, and then went right back up, but it didnít seem like I was any thinner. I think I was losing fat but not abnormal fat because I felt like my arms were getting scrawny and my middle were staying the same. Then with the second half of my P2 with hCG in my system, I really CaAN tell a difference.

    Iím wearing size 4 jeans. They admittedly are gloria Vanderbiltís which are a vanity size and are larger than they appear, but Iím planning on wearing them inside out so everyone can see the tag.

    Total loss Mid January to Mid May: 24 pounds.

    Now I am going to do a letter perfect transition and an A+ job on P3. And see if I can stay right here.

    You are not getting rid of me yet as I need a place to be accountable and I want to see how all of you are doing.

    Onward!
    P

    PS penny is having a better day today. I accidentally gave her a full tablet of prednisone instead of a half. I powdered it and sprinkled it on her tongue like a pixie stick. She has perked up and has been eating. I think it was more of a Godwink than an accident. Appointment tomorrow at the vet. Thanks everyone for thinking of her.

    Happy Sunday Ladies!

    Tracy, You do need to eat , up those calories as you do P3--you don't want to reset too low, so you wouldn't be able to eat a healthy amount of good food! Sounds like vaxing went well, no real side effects, that's good. Good for you on staying the course, during 72 hour transistion. At least you got a 1 of wiggle room for that. I'm usually not very hungry during the transition time, but I rarely get much wiggle room from them either, last time think it was like .2 oz! Sounds like you were disappointed in dailly average losses. I'm sorry--remind us how long your round was and total lbs lost? And heh, you did go down.

    Phoebe, day 13 and 11 lbs gone! Good for you! That's great! So exciting about your new fur baby! Puppies are so much fun, so exciting, I actually quit work to raise my last fur baby--just like a new mom! Like your signature saying, take it one day at a time. Good advice for all of us on protocols, and will be good advice on your puppy days. Man, they are fun, but can be exhausting, as they are just like having a new baby, and toddler! Enjoy!

    Pearly, AT GOAL! wOOHOO! You go girl wearing those Boom Chicka Chicka undies! Age is a number, but but being old, or being young is as they say, a choice, often a state of mind! And you definitely seem young at heart. Love that! Sad about Little Penny, hoping appmt goes well at vet's tomorrow a.m. I know you are hurting to see her struggles. We all are sending you virtual hugs, and since I think we're all vaxed, hugs are ok!

    mrsstrong, I NEVER weigh with shoes on, if it helps to get to goal, I'll take my jewelry off to weigh! Sounds like P3 is going great, and you are really doing well in the mental game with food! Good for you!

    JGD, Loading last 2 days of vacation sounds like a wonderful idea. And doing a short round upon return from vacay to reset eating habits makes sense to me. Keep us posted!

    Starbucks, good for you on your 1.4 loss. I'd take that too! Keep it up!

    AFM: Loaded Friday and Saturday. I don't feel like I went crazy, but gained 4.2 lbs anyway. That's typical load weight for me, I have even gained up to over 5 lbs before. Today is vlc day 1 of 14 days, to finish a 40 day round. Think I need to fess up here--I was going to do the pellets, and did the first day of loading on pellets. I found it so distracting trying to figure out when to take, and to let them dissolve seemed to take forever, So Saturday a.m., I did the first dose at like 6:30 in the a.m., and decided to just go back to injections. I mixed hcg and injected, so much easier, for me anyway. One and done for the day. Probably wasteful of hcg, but I had it here, and still have another vial--so did it anyway. Today, I have not been drinking like I am supposed to! I have got to drink up this afternoon! Plan on having grilled shrimp and onions for DH and myself for dinner. Getting my head in the game is going to be the challenge. I keep thinking about salads and P3 foods! Not good. Once you see the loading weight drop, it gets easier mentally, at least for me. So here it goes. Hoping for some drop tomorrow, for me and anyone else that is on p2, and for our P3ers, stablization!
