    Hey all, I'm new here and into week 1 of P2. Thought I would bump this thread for us newer folks. I am 5'9", and started at 192 lbs. I'm on day 5 of P2, and I'm currently at 186.5 lbs. I'm super excited about it so far! My love handles are disappearing quickly, and my slight double-chin is gone. My coworkers are already noticing, but are a bit skeptical about how safe that rapid of a weight loss is. I've become a big educator of friends and colleagues about this diet.

    My wife is a nurse practitioner and I'm a nurse, and we're doing this together. We are doing injections received from a local compounding pharmacy (that the lady prescribed), and we're on the same dose at 0.150ml. I'm going to miss the occasional spirit or glass of wine, but the results are so promising so far that it's a huge motivator. Slight headache the first day, but I've had more energy and found that I'm more productive than I was last week. Amazing that it works that way on only 500 calories a day!

    Best,

    Jeff

    Hi Jeff,

    If you have headache, your electrolytes may be low. Add some salt or bouillon and it should go away.

    I used to live in north Phoenix, I miss the sunshine. Hope to move west again soon, but further north / higher elevation.

    Good luck with your round -

    Lynne

    Thanks Lynne! I live up in the Mayer area. My headache was only on the 1st day of P2 - I'm pretty sure it was my glucose stabilizing. I've had that happen on Atkins in the past.

    So far so good, I'm enjoying a lunch of mixed lettuce with pickled jalepenos and pepperoncinis with a splash of balsamic vinegar and Mrs. Dash. Protein is hard-boiled eggs (1 whole plus 3 egg whites) with a bit of Tabasco. Hot, I know, but makes me drink more water and kills my itching for something "tasty". I also found the perfect snack food - dill pickles! Zero calories in the whole jar. A couple of wedges is just right for me between meals.

    For you men out there, this diet is awesome and really works! 8 pounds in the last 6 days are gone. The trick is to carefully plan your meals (especially for what you take to work with you - I make enough dinner the night before so I have leftovers) and to get a high-quality HCG for injections.

    Thanks for the welcome, Lynn!

    Hi Jeff,

    I hope your round, and your wife's, continue to go well!

    Glad your headache went away: I also noticed you had dill pickles (salty) . . . I read recently that pickle juice is supposed to help with migraines.

    Mayer, not sure if I was ever there, I tended to take the twisty drive through Wickenburg and Parnell to get to Prescott and Jerome on day trips in my little yellow convertible. Sadly I was laid off from my job in AZ during the recession, ended up moving multiple times and am now back in SE Michigan. Not much sunshine here!

    My round (#5) has gone very well - I'm in the last few days of P3, stabilizing well and getting ready to go back to exercizing.

    Happy losses,

    Lynne
