    Thanks Leez! Those are some good ideas to think about! I will do some research.

    Hope you have a great Friday!

    Hello, hello!

    Up 0.2 today. I caved and had one of those dang cookies yesterday. Also no elimination. Sigh. I wasn't hungry for dinner and was so tired I just went to bed. I had taken the kids to a local "beach" at one of the nearby lakes in the morning for few hours. It was the hottest day so far this summer. They had a blast with friends but it was tough chasing the 2 year old, who is in an it's-fun-to-run-away-from-mommy phase. He's also the 2nd child and a daredevil with no fear. He definitely makes things interesting I had my poached egg before we left and packed plenty of snacks for them, water for everyone. I had my apple while we were there (the little gala apples are SO good right now!) and luckily they tired themselves out! When we got home they had nap/quiet time and that's when I usually either have lunch or get some things done. But I ended up with a sunburn and feeling worn out. So I ended up vegging on the couch. With no real prepared meals, (and no real hunger, mind you) I grabbed some deli meat slices and a few pickles (no sugar) which tasted good. Sat around knowing I should get up and do some laundry or at least prepare dinner for myself for later (everyone else was having pizza). But I just sat there. Then started thinking about food *eyeroll* That should have been my cue to get my butt up and get distracted by something else. Kids finally got up and we popped some popcorn so they could watch a new streaming Disney movie. I was tempted by the popcorn but moved beyond that. Still was just lingering around, not doing much while they watched the movie. I was so blah. My daughter asked for a cookie. I caved. Gave her one and ate mine while hidden in the kitchen away from them. Ugh. It tasted nice but did nothing for my body and soul. I didn't feel guilty per se, but I was for sure not pleased to go off my plan. By the time I had given the kids a bath and ordered the pizza, I was just feeling worn out, tired and a little down. I had a few strawberries and drank some water, put the kids to bed, said goodnight to hubby, took a shower and went to bed. Woke up this morning ready to eat, expecting a gain, and ready to start the day on plan. I went ahead and took my regular 500 mag last night. I will go online today to see about ordering a different form though.

    We are going over to my parent's house today. My dad smoked a pork shoulder which I of course will not eat. Not sure what I will eat though. I've noticed I tend to not be hungry for lunch and have just gone without eating it and followed the hunger scale. But I always have my apple with me. And my mom is always willing to make me whatever I want. Tomorrow we will be at my in-law's house in their pool. They will have burgers and brats. Luckily my MIL is gluten-free, dairy-free and pretty much grain-free so when I say I am only eating lean meats and veggies she will be all too okay with me bringing something else. She actually did hcg drops about 8 years ago and it started her journey to finding out she was intolerant of a bunch of stuff which lead her to be basically soy, dairy, grain and gluten-free. But she's very preachy about it so I'm not willing to tell her what I'm currently doing right now.

    Sorry for the novel today! haha I'm still really happy with my progress as I feel I've finally been successful at sticking with the plan (moreso falling and getting up again/not giving up completely) and learning what this is all about. I don't have all the answers but I'm listening to my body more and trying to give it what it needs instead of just what it wants. I'm not so much focused on the pounds lost right now, but rather where my mind is and how I feel. Although I am certainly paying attention to all of it! So thanks for listening and all the support!

    skeeballer, I think you are doing well--you have lots of temptations with feeding little ones. And seems like you are eating out a lot, with both your family and hubby's family. During my p2s I tend to hibernate. But I think you mentioned once on thread, that you aren't fooling yourself, when cheating on hcg--it does sort miss the purpose of detoxing, ridding yourself of sugars and starches. What y0u wrote really impressed me, losing weight not eating protocol is a little counter productive, as we are all trying to reset with the therapy. But you are doing so well, keep it up. Like you said not giving up is a win really! Enjoy the weekend!

    Thank you!! I plan to do R2 once the kids are back in school and I have time to myself and will have more of a set schedule and routine. I'm hoping the temptations won't be so great then

    Also, I realize P3 may not work for me after not following P2 correctly. I'm not going to pretend I will stabilize perfectly, if at all. But I will try!

    Just wanted to pop in and say I did well today. Everyone at my parent's had pulled pork, potato salad, baked beans...I had grilled chicken with my mom's garden cherry tomatoes. Delicious!

    Lots of water but still no elimination. Not sure if I will add any magnesium tomorrow or try a smooth move tea. I love the taste but don't always like the outcome

    Happy Monday

    Down a pound today and back on track and losing again. Had a small but satisfying elimination today as well so, go me lol. Did some grocery shopping and stocked up some yummy fruits and proteins yesterday. I only have 1 iffy event this week which is dinner out tomorrow night with a friend. But I looked up the menu and saw they have shrimp and veggie fajitas available. I will ask for only the shrimp and veggies and request no oils or butter be used, and just hope they take me seriously. It will be obvious I hope if they use oils. It's not imperative that I eat since I'll be with a friend and the restaurant is in our neighborhood. I can always bring it home for my husband.

    I'm actually not hungry for breakfast for the very first time today. So I'm not going to eat anything and just keep an apple nearby. I noticed 2 new pimples on my face this weekend which never happens. It's embarrassing but maybe my skin is confused. I think maybe it's all the tomatoes and fruit? Lots of acid?

    Hope you all had a great weekend!

    Hello all,

    I'm back from my P3 and beyond travels... Have been planning on another round but wanted to wait until it got hot because I decided winter + hcg was a bridge too far. For me, thinking about another round is like thinking about climbing a mountain. It's gonna be hard and painful but the anticipation is usually more painful than the actual event.

    So... was stabilizing well for months 2 lbs over my LDW but then I got cocky and sloppy and didn't weigh myself for a couple months and whoopsie, up 5 lbs.

    Still down 20 from my starting round (not first but first in years) last July and this slip up has only fortified my nerve to start another round and get the last 15, well, now 20, off.
    Loading this weekend and starting P2 Monday. Spending this week clearing out the cupboards and fridge of all the P2 no-no's.
    Goodbye oily fish, farewell potatoes, seeya brown rice...

    Glad to see some regulars still posting!

    Junies? What are we going to be next month? Julias?

    Okay. Was up 0.2 but down another pound today. The last 2 days I've struggled again with cheating in the afternoons. For 2 days I allowed myself to eat a sleeve of graham crackers (which I shouldn't even have in the house at this time). I wasn't hungry--hunger hasn't been a problem. Again, I'm proud that my cheats are not binges and that they haven't turned into quitting altogether. But cheating is cheating. And my losses are less than stellar. I could have easily lost 10% this round. I'm 0.8 from my goal weight which was 12 lbs for R1 (a very feasible number). I am both glad and very meh about it. I've seen what I can do with P2 (very small glimpses, but it's there). My question is, should I extend this round? I gave myself a short round so I wouldn't set myself up to fail and feel overwhelmed with 40 days. And it still feels a BIT daunting, but a lot less scary knowing I've come this far. Maybe I can stick POP for the last half? Or should I just take my last injection on 6/26, go my 3 days without hcg, and see how P3 goes? Then I can look at another round at the end of summer.

    Hi, misscast! I've read your posts from the previous threads and it's good to see you! It is a relief to know that some of you can "slip up" and enjoy life after hcg and not gain it ALL back, regroup, and focus again. Sometimes I fear I'll never be able to enjoy a balance again. But I know it's simply a matter of trial and error, listening to my body, and using food as fuel as often as I can while still enjoying life's celebrations

    skeeballer,

    .08 from goal is pretty darn good! I haven't been following this thread so I can't advise on your schedule but I wouldn't beat myself up over being less than a pound away from your goal. And I can relate to your cheating not from hunger but from something else. I ask myself all the time, what is that 'else'? If we knew the answer we wouldn't have a problem in the first place!

    misscast, welcome back! Good to hear from you--I remember when I first got back on the threads, you posted several very encouraging posts encouraging me. It was appreciated very much, and I remember it. I've been going on this journey now, about 6 months. Still hanging in there. Are you planning on a 40 round, or a shorter round? 15-20 lbs is definitely doable,especially if you haven't just cycled back to p2. And I am with you, it feels at first like climbing a mountain--but after about a week or so, I tend to settle in and not mind the food or limited amounts quite so much. Good luck, enjoy loading this weekend! I am on P4 now, and actually seem to be stablizing at 2 lb below last dose weight, for now! But I will prob do one more round in mid August to lose maybe 10 more lbs. We'll see--have to be mentally in the game. You know the program, you've done it before--have no doubt you will do great!

    skeeballer, I totally agree with misscast--.8 from goal is great. So are you thinking of doing a 23-26 day round? Is that what I'm reading, opposed to a 40 day round? Leez always tells us the longer the round the easier the stablization seems to be. Will this be your final round? If not, you might think about doing 30 days, then a short planned interruption and another 10 days POP to get as much as you can from this round, before P3. It's all so individual, noone but you can decide what is best for you. Good luck with decision.
