    Woo-hoo for both of us! From now on, when I stand on the scale in the mornings and see a bigger drop, that's the sound I'm gonna hear! WHOOSH!!

    I wonder how much is mental/emotional stress/trauma that we stuff away. I have no doubt we store that in our cells just like we do toxins. Yes, I'm willing to let go of the pounds, but am I willing to unpack and process all the baggage I've crammed in boxes and stuck on a shelf over the past few years and let all of it go? I know that is going to be a big part of this. At least for me.

    I decided to do my rebounding first thing this morning (followed by a footbath, since I already had things moving). I'll be curious to see if it makes a difference.

    That is very insightful, because we know our subconscious affects us physically. Some of that is stuffed hurts, and those produce emotions that can puzzle us because we think we've settled them long ago. When those come up for me, I try to be aware of that and verbally give the emotion I've identified to God, then ask him to heal the wound in my soul. Speaking it out seems to be the key for me. If I just let it roll around in my head, nothing changes.

    Hi everyone, I've just noticed this thread. I started my first injection today and I have been stressed so can't eat much so I'm not sure what to do? It's not often I go off my food but I just cannot face it today and I'm meant to be loading. Also can someone remind me what supplements we should be taking please?

    Hi Krista, welcome to the loader thread, we're all "making progress".

    My HCG hunger suppression kicks in a few hours after the first injection, so I have to deal with not wanting to eat during load days nearly every round.

    What I have found works for me is to eat something with fat in it every time you have a little bit of room or in your case, a feeling that you can eat something. You can usually get enough in for a decent load. The main thing is fat...grab a gob of peanut butter, a few nuts, some cream cheese on a cracker, or eat some real icecream. Get that fat in.

    The main supplements to take in P2 are magnesium and Vitamin C to keep your guts moving, and potassium and mineral salt for electrolytes. Just always put some in your water with a bit of your lemon juice. Beyond that, some find that B12 helps with energy levels, but you'll only notice that if you are already B12 deficient. Take your magnesium before bed to help with sleep. Theanine is good for that too.

    Thanks Leez. Just ordered potassium and Theanine. I already have magnesium and I take b12 cos I'm vegan. With mineral salt, is that just normal salt you put on your food? I use pink sea salt - would that be ok?

    Black tea, green tea, and matcha are all good sources of theanine if you drink those, just fyi.

    Yes, pink salt is mineral salt. Also celtic sea salt and grey salt.

    I use NuSalt for potassium.... I just do a few shakes is my waters. Another source you may have around is cream of tartar. That will provide about 125mg per 1/4 tsp.

    Down .7 this morning. I didn't sleep well last night, and my mood has turned weepy. I'm happy to let go of all the water weight hanging around, but I'd just as soon not have it coming out my eyes!

    Hurray for losses!

    Weepiness can be a sign of emotional detox, which is a physical thing that can happen when our cells release toxins. As our fat cells empty, whatever toxins the body has stored there will be released along with the fat. It can cause all kinds of reactions.

    Try to get more water in today and some gentle exercise to stimulate the lymph system, like walking. It will help move that through.

    I try to use a lot of cilantro on my P2 salads. Its a great detoxifying herb.

    P2D12: Got up too early to weight today, so no scale report.

    I drank lots yesterday but I rebounded and did a foot bath on the same day. I may have stirred it up! I guess I need to push it on out.

    I'm really happy to not be one of those people who thinks cilantro tastes like soap! It might be deconstructed taco salad night tonight. I also have coriander EO I can put over my liver area today after I shower.

    I use Morton's "Lite Salt" which is half Sodium Chloride and half Potassium Chloride. But the best tasting salt, IMO, is Redmond - mined in Utah from an ancient sea bed.

    JennyV, what is "rebounding"? I prefer to walk outdoors whenever possible, to top off my Vit D. But the tree pollen allergies and my broken ankle slowed me down this spring for sure! It's just short of three months since the injury, and I am only now getting back to walking. I'm wearing ankle and knee braces, and taking pretty short steps: but I did 2 miles yesterday, yay!
