    I need some advice from the veteran HCGers

    I'm back!! Like a wart, LOL!

    Ok, so I'm on VLCD 46. I wanted to extend my round to lose my last 9.2 pounds. I currently have 6.8 left.

    My problem is that I want to be done. I'm really stressed out over these last few pounds, to the point where it's all I think about I'm really cranky and short and quick to yell, yes yell, at my kids & hubby. Not like me at all. Plus, the last few days I have been hungry, like tummy hurting, noise making, bloating, bubbley feeling hungry.

    I'd stop, but I feel guilty, really guilty about not making my goal of 50 pounds. I just don't know how I will mentally and emotionally make it thru the next 2 weeks to hopefully lose the next 6.8 pounds. The way my losses have been so slow, it'll take another 2 weeks easily.

    I need advice, permission, justification...

    Personally, I say you should transition into P3/P4 for the 6-7 weeks to reset yourself now, and then do a 23 day round after to lose that last 10 pounds.
    DrS was very adamant about not going more than 34 pounds (40 for obese) per round. Looks like you're trying to smash too much loss into a round.
    I figured, when I started this journey, this is a long-term haul. I lost just over 30 on my first round - and I'm up to 10 this round, with another 30 to go... so I'll probably have one or two more rounds after this one.

    Good luck, with what ever you decide to do... but you being cranky & hungry is a body-sign that something isn't right.

    It's SO tempting when you start this to say "I am going to be one of the lucky ones who loses 1-2 pounds a day, and I will accomplish this in one fell swoop!" I would like to lose (realistically) 20 pounds (putting me at 142) or (wishfully) 30 pounds (putting me at 132). But I know now that I am NOT one of those rare ones who loses like that, and I have become more realistic about my goal. As time goes on, I find myself thinking more and more about different types of food (milk, my beloved mugs of tea with milk and 1/2 tsp of sugar, cheese, broccoli), and I think that I am really ready to transition to P3 and see how well I stablize. After that, I am realizing I will need another round to get to my wishful weight of being in the low 130's, and that is OK. Doing P2 was far easier than I ever thought it would be, and the thought of a subsequent round isn't disconcerting at all; I actually liked the structure and the thought processes that I had to go through.

    So maybe if your mind/body is telling you that it is tired, then it is time to transition into P3, and do a second round in 6 weeks?

    This is my R3. I really, really didn't want to do another round. P2 is really hard for me. I feel like fatigued crap most of the time and eating the P2 foods for me is a mental battle most everyday. My goal when I started HCG in May 2011 was to lose 50 pounds. Now that that goal is in sight, I just don't think I can make it. Which means another round. Maybe I can mentally handle it in the fall. I don't know. I'm looking at getting a tummy tuck this spring, so maybe a short round to clean up any excess weight would be an ok thing in Sept or Oct. I'm really discouraged. I want to feel proud of my losses, because 43 pounds is nothing to laugh about, but all I can see that I missed my goal. I'm nuts...I know I am...I take meds for it, LOL!

    with all that, I think I am done for now. I can't face another 2 weeks of this battle. Thanks you two for the kind words!
