    Congratulations @Roni!!! You are doing amazing!!!

    @Sunshine, thanks girl. I did manage to go over the protein on 2.0 every now and then back then. But back then I was eating mainly chicken. One nugget of info my OCD logging brought up!

    I bet you will do great with all those activities!!! Happy birthday to your boys!

    Btw, without giving your name here just in case, are you very active in the FB 3.0 page? I think I saw a few posts the other day from someone that looked a whole lot like your picture here and thought of sending you a friends request in FB but didn’t dare just in case it was not you & the person would have thought I was a stacker!!! LOL

    Welcome to my Psychoanalysis session (sorry this is long)! [3.0/Keto]

    Thanks so much for the encouragement everyone! It sure is good to be able to back track. I have since then discovered not only like I mentioned, that I am not drinking nearly enough water as I thought but also;
    - I am going over my protein macro each and every time.
    - Along with that, I need to find a way to do more of the prenatals, etc., and less of my collagen peptides to prevent going over the dang protein every time… It might not do anything to some, but I guess it does to me!
    - I am too much in love with my BPC, even with rotating between the BPC pods I pre-made and the Keto Cocoa powder version.
    - I have been eating beef most of the time, beef that is of course the main source of my protein intake aka making me go over the macro, therefore need to go back to consume more chicken.
    - I had not noticed, that higher fat % ground beef has a higher amount of proteins per gram than the lower fat. Really??!!!! (dang Keto! going back to less fat!) hahahahaha!
    - Going to try a carb up day once a week to see how that also helps with my hair issue.
    - Along those lines; I have been going to bed late again, and not sleeping enough hours. I am sleeping well, but not enough hours. Keto does that to a lot of people. Turns out adding a few carbs solves the issue (what a magnificent oxymoron right??!!!!).
    - As much as I have tried to control my dairy because of the sensitivity, I am still consuming too much.
    - My back has been annoying me for the past week and didn’t pay much attention to it and today I can barely move (laying in bed right now with heating pad on) so I bet I have inflammation from that.
    - I have been working very long hours & had quite a bit of stress the past couple of months and had not even taking that into consideration.
    - I HAVE to somehow drug myself, self-hypnotize myself or something so I can do some minor exercise, like walking at least 3 times a week. Why oh why do I hate exercise so freaking much?!! LOL
    - I need to recalculate my macros, forget about this almost past month and focus on a fresh new start.

    So…after all that, which could look negative to some, but for me are very good eye openers, I reminded myself today that this is the LOWEST weight I have been in almost 20 years and I need to celebrate that!

    And with that in mind, I am setting up myself (mentally) to start from scratch like it would be the very 1st day. (I am not loading again, just starting the “clock” from “0”.

    I calculated my macros again (not happy with the numbers but I guess it is what it is…) and am going back to pre-plan my meals. I do not want to go back to do meal prep marathons cause I do not want to focus on food so much. Is not psychological healthy for me as it can easily turn into an obsession. I want to develop a healthy life style not an obsession on how to be skinny. I want it to be what sustains me not what I mainly focus on.

    I am working on some menu combinations so I can stick to the macros which of course, include more chicken.

    Well enough psychoanalysis for now. Got to get up slowly and get me my next 24ozs of water!

    Thanks so much for “listening”! ANY and ALL ideas for low protein meals, please share!!! TIA!

    Carol yes I am sure that was me (Wendy) as I have been posting there. When I am on hcg I get a bit obsessed and it keeps me in line and motivated. Feel free to send me a Facebook request.

    I do BPC but just a tsp of mTc and butter.

    Protein is easy to go over and I have been doing more fish lately.

    Carol, I think you're doing awesome and it sounds like you have a GREAT attitude. Congratulations on being your lowest weight in 20 years!!! I'm skipping my collagen because of my macros too, I'll just make up for lost time in P3. I'm hitting my macros exactly everyday by adding everything into MyFitnessPal and then following it to the letter as I prepare my food. It might be easier since I only eat once a day. Here's how it looks:

    -2 Coffees with 4 Tbls of heavy cream total

    -4 hard boiled eggs sliced on top of...
    -4 cups mixed greens (cut up with kitchen shears)
    -2 Tbls sauerkraut
    -1/2 Tbls mayo
    -2 Tbls unfortified nutritional yeast

    Total for the day= 663 cal, 18 carb, 47 fat, 39 prot

    I mix it all together like a tossed salad and it's delicious! On my higher cal day I add another egg and more mayo to meet my macros there. I have 2 or 3 daily menus planned out like this so I don't have to think about counting, I just rotate and know it's all calculated.

    Hope that helps!

    P3 - Day 1

    Blessed Sunday to you all, Lovelies!

    AFM – down to 169.0 – I made it back to my December LDW. That is a total of 9 pounds in 21 days (I did a very short P2 round)

    Now, to STAY there for the next 6 weeks before I do another P2.

    Sunny – Congrats on your losses!!! Even with eating out so many times – WIN FOR SUNNY!! Silk Peel, huh? I’ll ask about that at my skin medspa. I’m treating myself to another neck treatment in March, trying to keep the ol lady turkey gobble thing under control. It ain’t cheap, but it works and it isn’t surgery, so I do it at least once a year. I'm proud of my laugh lines and crinkles, but I absolutely loathe and despise that turkey gobble neck thing.

    Kar – SO!! HAPPY!!! You made your goal!!!!!

    Peanuts Happy Dance Group.jpg

    Carol – LOVE LOVE LOVE your analysis (so I guess that makes me an OCD Master Geek as well).

    - I have to watch how much BPC I have in P3 and absolutely cannot have it at all in P2.
    - I HAVE to count my calories in P2 AND P3 – I eat very healthy foods, just too much of them.
    - I’m going to limit my total protein and calories to my high BMR number which is about 1490 – give or take 100 calories. (BMR # calculation is from 2.0 Protocol; this is my own idea to try & have a specific limit to what I eat during P3; we’ll see if it works better for my stabilization than just "winging it".)
    - I also consume waaaay too much dairy. I think I’ve just switched my love for snacking from chips and crackers to cheese, and THAT has got to stop.

    RE: Eggs – it is great that so many of you can enjoy eggs as a protein alternative on P2. Sadly, I cannot, so others out there that find out they gain on eggs, you are not alone. I can eat them on P3. As a matter of fact, they HELP me stabilize better if I eat more eggs on P3. But NOT on P2.

    So to sum up this last P2, I found out that the 2.0 protocol, done by the book, is the best way for me to do a P2. I can indulge in a little extra protein, and a ½ apple in tuna fish or handful of strawberries in O% fat yogurt once a week; I can saute onion in 1 T of MCT oil, but that is all the “playing around” I can do, as I was letter perfect my last 9 days of P2 and dropped 4 pounds.

    Lesson learned well.
    Christy

    P2VLCD38 in progress... hcg 3.0... same weight as yesterday (last dose)

    Yayy, Christie! Congrats on getting down to your last LDW!

    As much of a pain as it is, I'm going to continue to log my food in P3, too. It's when I stop logging that I run into problems. Also when I don't pay attention to getting enough water.

    Though I haven't yet gone through P3 after doing 3.0 protocol, I'm inclined to say OP and 2.0 protocols work best for me in terms of losing the most weight in the shortest period of time, but the 3.0 protocol was easy to stick with and I didn't feel like I was really giving anything up. No one around me noticed I was dieting and I didn't spend the last week counting down the minutes til I could eat bacon... So (assuming I stabilize well), any future rounds I do will be 2.0 protocol if I'm trying to achieve he fastest result, 3.0 if I don't mind taking an extra week or so.

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

    Happy Sunday Everyone!

    R4P2D3

    Just popping in to report that I am down -1.5 from starting weight today! Yay and hooray. I think that's the biggest loss I have ever had in P2. I'm well prepared for that to slow way down over the next few days and promise not to pout if it does

    Christy - Yay on getting to the 160s. Sounds like you learned a lot for your future maintenance.

    Kar - GOAL! Yay for you!

    Everyone enjoy the rest of your weekend and happy losing/maintaining to ALL!

    Congratulations, KRISTY & KAR! Goal!!! Several others are closing in fast! Woot!

    Carol, I love the work you did and thank you for sharing. I am way too lazy to have done all that work for myself, but I am happy to take the benefit from all of your work. Very impressive. I definitely see some tweaks for myself, too. I am so pleased for you that your attitude is so great and you can take a deep breath and get going again. So many people would let discouragement be their guide, and just quit. You are a rockstar. I look forward to celebrating your reaching your ultimate goal when the time comes, as you have the determination, skills and attitude to make it so.

    My apologies to several of you, I had things to say but I’m on my phone and I’m not good at writing this way. Can’t remember when I can’t go back and look. Just know I’m reading and cheering you on.

    I woke up yesterday and today super tired and weak feeling. Not worried that it has anything to do with the diet. Just a bit worn out. I did make sure I had plenty of salt yesterday and will again today. But is is playing havoc with my productive weekend. I was up .8 yesterday but back down .8, to what I was on Friday, today. So doubt if I will make goal by tomorrow. But I am close and I can either keep going a couple more days or take what I get tomorrow.

    I won’t decide today, whileI’m so tired.

    Slept late and now off to take a nap.

    Christie: The silk peel was lovely! It’s a form of microdermabrasion and there are probably lots of different names for it. I get the neck thing as we get older!!!

    Pearly hope you have a good day of rest!!!

    Ok MS. Cocky reporting in. Lol!! I ate too much “healthy” foods and I am up a little ha ha! But oh my, I was eating these turkey meatballs that had zucchini in them and they were super moist and delish!!! (No bread crumbs she used almond flour). Then some homemade brisket that was on the salty side. Not too worried. I will get through today and stay home this week and get back to my correct portions and macros. Too many proteins but I would have done a great P3 night! Lol!

    Thanks so much Skinny! Do you eat this every day?

    I use the app "loseit". I was doing as I went but guess what? Starting tomorrow, I am entering everything ahead of time! DH better not mess up with my plan! OF course, I do not know what I will do next weekend when I'll be in Houston (for work). We'll see!

    Yup, 2 peas in a pod! LOL Thanks! Doesn't it give you so much peace when you can analyze it and find the details??!!! OCD Rocks!!! LOL

    BPC, oh my I remember I dreaded it thinking it was going to be nasty and now I cannot live without it. Trying different non-dairy creamers and keto stuff so I can still get that creamy rich yumminess without hating TESS the next morning!

    I am SO HAPPY for you! Glad you found that perfect plan for you & congrats on the loss!
