Yesterday up the .4 I was down the day before, plus another whole pound. Today another .4.

    I am not feeling stiff or sore, but I will try an Epson salt bath tonight. I haven't changed what I am eating when I was staying well under under my window. No weird artificial sweeteners, nothing new.

    Not happy today.

    Interview went...who knows? I was just myself and did my best. All I can do.

    Doggone it.

    I was thinking the same thing about it being pretty quiet around here, where is Dubbles?? I know how frustrating it can be with the darn TESS going up and up when there is really no reason for it!! I feel your pain!! But chin up, and onward.

    I'm with you on the chicken breast. I've eaten so much chicken, ground turkey and eggs that I'm starting to sprout feathers and cluck.

    AFM, I'm up a pound (sniff) but know it's not from eating off POP so not too rattled.
    Misscast - thanks but it was short lived, up a pound today! Not even sure why, maybe didn't eat enough, who knows... this is just how I roll! A planned interruption is just taking a break, have to wait the time after your last dose for your hcg to wear off and then it needs to be anywhere from 4-14 days, if it goes longer then you will need to load again... at least that is how I understand it. You're funny... about to sprout feather and cluck...haha!!

    Well as for me, in case you didn't ready above, I am up a pound, really have no idea why, just how my body works I guess. 157.2 today, still 1.3#'s under LDW. Tomorrow will start my PI and P3 eating. I am really going to concentrate on good fats, and healthy options so I stabilize properly. Am a bit nervouse since I am going a little rogue with the PI as I didn't get in 23 doses but it is what it is.

    Hope everyone is doing well!! Dubbles....where have you been? Hope everyting is ok!

    LDW 158.5, 2nd day after dose 157.2

    Yup, our bodies must be in cahoots. I was up a LB yesterday and down a half today, so still up a half. Gah, hate being so nit picky but it's annoying when you're doing the same thing and either getting or not getting movement in the right direction.

    I was wondering the same thing, too - Where's Dubbles??

    Well, Iím really sorry so many followed me into the undulating landscape of up and down! Very frustrating week!

    Im FINALLY down 1.4 so back to Sundayís weight and .2 under LDW. But for last several weeks Iíve been cruising at 2 pounds lower and it BUGS ME! Lol.

    Penny had a bad night last night so we all had a bad night. By all, I mean me. Pearl only opened one little eye long enough to say ďIím sleeping here!ď Back to the vet tomorrow for a new steroid shot and hope it helps as much as before but without side effects. The ďteaĒ I made for her still helps comfort her but only for a couple of hours instead of all night.

    Meanwhile, Iím still trying to reduce my T3 thyroid meds as endocrinologist insists. Iím down 30% but she wants 50%. I am dragging w fatigue and brain fog and aching. Not sure I can go any lower.

    I blame the creep on it, but am trying to keep an open mind.

    Endocrinologists: the accountants of the medical field. They really donít care how you feel. Just look at numbers.

    Onward. Sigh.

    Misscast - there sure are days when our bodies are in cahoots, right?? That's funny. Today I am down 1.3 to 155.9#'s!! I really really like the dietdoc hcg! I really really wish I could get it here in Ca! If anyone is looking at ordering from them, PM me! I would love to get more!! Sorry...that is probably not something I should be saying here but heck!! A teenage girl can go to the nurse at a public school here to arrange for an abortion, without parental consent, but I, as a grown woman, can't get me some hcg!! Ridiculous!! Hopefully I won't ever need another round but if I do.. it would be nice to have on hand, just saying. Okay, done with my rant...onward.

    P ~ I am so sorry that your penny girl had a bad night!! Hope another steroid shot does the trick! Poor baby!! I am happy to hear you are back down though!! Darn TESS really can mess with the mind!!

    Dubbles, Mrsstrong...hope you are both doing ok!!

    As for me, I am down 1.3#'s to 155.9. Very happy to have some wiggle room. Not hungry at all this morning! I had cream in my coffee and forced myself to eat two eggs, fried in butter and two sausage links but now, I am stuffed!! I am sure tomorrow will not show me that same 155# but I will be joyful today, while it is here!! Whoop, whoop!! Heading out to Costco this morning, will check back later!

    LDW 158.5 PI day one 155.9 (2.6#'s below ldw)

    LOVELY LOSERS 2021 - You're HOTTER than JULY!!!

    Polly, so sorry about Penny!

    Phoebe, awesome drop!

    Misscast, hope you dropped that pound you found!

    AFM, no idea LOL I had coffee before I could weigh myself because it was so early. Had to drop my car off. Tomorrow is day 1 of no drops day so I guess that weight will have to do. It's a PI not the end of the round anyway!

    Happy hump day everyone!

    OMG, so funny. It's true, they're accountants. My temp was subnormal for years, 96.8 (dyslexic body?) yet doc would tell me my numbers were 'within range.' Even after I finally got someone to give me thyroid medication (very low dose) my temp stayed low until I started taking raw adrenals supps. My temp is in the 98's now and I feel so much better. I also take Lugol's iodine.

    Good Morning Lovelies,

    Pearly, so sorry about Penny. I personally have never found a good endocrinologist. I do better with a DO doctor or younger MD. Did you ever go to the website https://stopthethyroidmadness.com/
    I have found that very helpful. There is lots of good information and maybe even an list of doctors?

    I am having a very tough couple of days here and don't feel like myself. For 2 weeks I went away from home on vacation and had a business trip. Now I am afraid to step on the scale and I am worried that I am way up. Things feel a little tighter...I am also craving sugar, so going to be strong today. I have given myself a few days to come down and am going to hit the water and tea hard and flush things out today. I have gotten in bad habits last week so time to nip the "let's have desert every day" in the bud.

    I am also covered in Mosquito bites. DH has none!!! I am itchy. We don't usually get this many mosquitos, but I am going to use a natural spray and stay inside.

    Hope you all have a wonderful day.
    Fondly,

    RK ~ I am in southern calif as well and am the same. My husband gets zero and I have several. A few weeks ago I itched one so bad on the top of my foot it got infected and had to be on antibiotics for 10 days!! Uggg!!

    As for me, well...I really overdid it yesterday, food wise. I had mixed nuts, cheese, popcorn but I think the kicker, what really put me over the top was a big bowl of cherries!! I could not stop eating them! I kept going back for more, this was at around 9pm too!! I really shouldn't eat past 7, but anyhow, after those cherries... I....WAS.... SO...... BLOATED!! No surprise that I gained this morning!! I'm up a wooping 2.8#'s!! I have never gained that much in one day, even on a load day!! Well...all I can say is lesson learned. Today is a new day started off with some greek yogurt and blueberries. I still feel bloated! ONWARD!

    Oh so sorry, RK! I think your plan sounds good, to give yourself a few days to come down. What I do when I let go is to go back to P3 foods and add some fat if I am hungry/craving. But for me, lower carb seems to be where my body likes to be so it responds to that.

    Hope TESS is kind to you when you do step on it! Don't let go and give up because you will end up heavier than you are now.

    I take citronella essential oil with me everyone during mosquito time! They love me.
