    Tinkerbrat that a great idea you had about the sickening sweet iced tea with truvia. I'll have to try that sometime. I have tea every day but sweet cravings are crazy how they come up on us without warning and demand us to do something. But we can outsmart ourselves.

    adaliazene/ I understand what you're saying about kids. I really think that it's a great way to grow us up ourselves but can be thankless. I really try to think of hCG as a way that I look out for myself and nurture myself and in that way I start feeling less deprived. Plus, like I said a few posts back I can't believe the difference in my cravings and hunger when my doses dialed in. The right dose and this forum is making all the difference for me in this round.

    HCG cheerleader I know already said this but I'm so very excited for you to hit your 100 mark! This is such a big deal that I'm trying to wrap my head around it. These are the things people look back on in their lives and feel proud of themselves about. I work with older people and I get to hear what has been important to them in their life and believe me, this is going to be one of them for you.

    Kansas, I'm doing infrared sauna, epsom salt baths and foot detox for toxins. Of all released approx 1% makes its way into breastmilk. Then out of that only a portion is absorbed. Realistically toxins aren't a big issue. The bigger issue is the stress extended nursing (I've been nursing for 3.5 yrs including through a pregnancy) is having on my body with the diet.

    And I'm not burning 500 cals worth nursing. Closer to 300 or under. So I've upped my protien to make it up. I may just need to up it some more.

    I've spent a long time researching. I waited until the baby was a year old and hardly nursing to start. I extend breadtfeed, until babe is about 2.
    I gained all my wieght through my pregnancy!! I did a rouge version last time because my body couldn't handle the diet at the time. I don't know if it was the HCG, nursing or stress but I lost about 15 pounds. So here I am at 165 wanting to reach 150 but my thyroids busted and my adrenals are shot.

    Sounds like your tired and I know, I have hypothyroid and am on meds for it and progersterone and I'm better this year. I would be totally spent if I was nursing, wow.
    Well, this diet, or should I say , reset, is for the thyroid impaired so, you are at the right place, girl, Glad you joined the club

    I'm hoping it will work. If I can pull through. My kids are now sick and I feel it in my throat too...
    Sometimes I wish I could stop time and take a me time break!

    I think I'm having good losses because I had been staying in the 154-157 range for a long time then the extra 5 that led me to this round creeped on in the past couple of months slowly, my thought is I probably could have gotten back down into that range by just eating protein but I wanted to try & see that 145 again even if I this just for a few weeks. Also I like being on Hcg through the holidays other wise I would gain soooo much from all the parties & dinners. This keeps me in check, not to say I won't have minor or major falls over the next 36 days but I'll be more motivated to get up in the morning & get right back on track. Also In was going into them at 160 now at 155 I'm ahead of the game we call life:-)
    Smooth riding today everyone!
    I did get some of the testing done and I'm taking the supplements and have changed my diet (non P2) a little as well. It's helped with other areas in my body, but not my weight. Go figure!

    I also have thyroid and adrenal problems. It makes losing weight hard. I can't imagine nursing through that as well. Good luck :-)

    Well.... if we are talking NOT on protocol, I don't see why you couldn't just mix an egg, some spices, a bit of water and a little stevia in it and microwave it. Make a tiny chocolate "cake". ...I actually used to do this when I would go batsh*t crazy looking for something, ANYTHING, to fix my sugar/carb cravings when I was on hcg before. I am learning now that my dose was probably too high, because I've had almost no hunger problems after the first vlcd day. Anyway, what I did EXACTLY was I would take a little whey protein powder (chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry) {at the time, the doc said I could use that to supplement protein as I was getting shaky and dizzy sometimes} and mix in some stevia, a little bit of eggbeaters (less than a whole egg, but still makes it fluff up like cake) and and mix in cinnamon or allspice and whatnot, whatever I was feeling at the time... ..and to mix it I would either use a bit of water, nf milk, or a bit of low carb EAS protein shake. No measurements, just mix the "this" with the "that" till it looked about like cake batter then into the microwave it would go for ...oh, maybe a minute or two. ..I learned to put it in a bigger bowl after the first time though... it puffs up pretty good, lol.

    I guess that was me coming out of the closet as "Hello, my name is D and I too am a frosting eater..."

    ...oh. and sometimes I was double naughty and mashed up my strawberries and mixed 'em with stevia and poured it on top and pretended it was strawberry shortcake. Desperate times/desperate measures and all that, lol don't judge me

    No: Hersheys NOP especiall the dark pwdr but, some of us sneek it in.
    YOur egg choc recipe sounds more p3 ish to me. You must get the cragin baaaaaaaad. It's not all that evil if you count the egg into the cals and it keeps you from eating FROSTING. You made me laugh.
    I knew choc went with strawberries.
    I'm doing the straw smoothie, totally legal , again tonite and I have all these extracts I can change it up with. feel like cheating and give me energy.

    Hey, I'm p2 vlcd5, started sunday at 132 now I'm 128.6, whot? All I can say is switching to injections is the best thing I've ever done for myself. and I'm on so many bio id supplement s and thyroid meds plus msm cuz lost soo much hair last time.

    I am grateful for my friends who allow me to live and grow here and that they wait and wait and wait for the rent money.

    AFM: Injections work! I'm down another pound? 128.6, or 128.4, dont remember
    Tom or no Tom? Spotting or bleeding? Crazy or, are those cramps again? Life on p2

    Gotta try the Strawberry Smoothie , totally legal if you buy fresh SB and freeze them. I added mint extract to mine. There's even recipes for ones that include cuks or spinach, mmmm Use search bar here "Strawberry Smoothie"

    I had kale soup last nite, not that curly stuff the tascano I g row (oops NOP) I can't waste it it so good and good for me.

    Melatonin works: fell rite asleep and I think I slept more and better.

    Bf wants to take a trip mid november to Milwaukee to see some mucical thingy ans spend the nite. Hello?? Can you say, HELL NO I'M INP2 AND I'M NOT WATCHING YOU EAT PAD THAI AT A RESTAURANT!!! He know better and we have many cultural events here in rockford or even McH County. I will not be sabotaged by that. that can wait till December.

    Speaking of which, I have planned for us to go to A Christmass Carol playing locally at the Opera HOUse and later in December boston pops Christmas in rockford. I want to go to the Nutcracker but he said he does not like Ballet

    Yoga and stomach and arm work outs today, I think. Brrr 29 degrees out

    Stalled at 6lbs vlcd11. I'm following protocol so I'll just hang in. My 1st round went well and I had lost 7.8 by vlcd11 but was 11 lbs more to start so maybe that explains some.
