P3 Day 9....learning and doing well!, sorry I haven't posted any progress info. Been enjoying P3 and the different foods that go along with it. Had to do one correction day- figured by body didn't like the zucchini I ate! Did an egg/nut correction day which was NOT punishment at all. Every other hour I would have 1 oz of nuts, and the hour in between would be a hard boiled egg! Lost 1.8 from that-and it was fun!

Today I am .2 above LDW...only because friends were in town and we had a get together. I chose to have a few drinks (wow, I am a lightweight now!), but they weren't all bad- vodka and green tea! No soda-and no cheat foods which is a HUGE step in the right direction. I am going out of town for a week, so I had a whole chicken already today's correction day is a Chicken day!! Oh..and plenty of water:)

I'm into P3!!!!!

Hey all-today was Day 2 of P3 and all is going well. Some minor gain on the scale (+.4) but I am not worried. I am in Biz's Bootcamp over on HTA and that is nice!! Lots of feedback and info abound! I am working at tweaking calories to see what works and what doesn't. Yesterday was tough...I felt like all I did was eat! Today has been better- and I'm managing to keep my water intake up :)

I'm already preparing myself mentally for my next P2 round. My LDW was 164- and by the comments I am receiving it sounds like people think I am skinny!! WTH?? It's been at least since High School when anyone has called me skinny! I would like to see if I can get down to 145 in my next round. That is pretty low for me- muscle girl and I'm 5'7". Time will tell!

Holy body fat is down to 19.8%-that's in the athletic category!

WOOOOOOOO FREAKIN' HOOOOOOOOOOOO! Tomorrow is day one of P3-did stats today and body fat is a LOW 19.8% (the charts I use show bf of 14-20% as in the athletic category!!). That makes my day. I started this journey on 12/6/08 (yes...just in December) with a body fat of 30.42%. Holy shit..that is amazing!

This last round was tough on me, but seeing that number makes it all worth it!

Update time...sorry...been meaning to visit:)

Well-things were going good, then I decided to make a sf choco treat with unsweetened coco and Davinci SF syrup (made with Splenda). I had only 2 T of the morning I was UP BY 1.2 lbs!! This was the first time I've had Splenda since starting protocol...and I will NEVER again have it. I was so pissed....the scale looked like I cheated but I didn't. I know it wasn't the coco because I made the same 2T mix the night before but with truvia (which, by the way...I LOVE!).

I guess everyone is different when it comes to what foods effect them. I know some that can stomach the Splenda...but not me.

After that I lost .6 one day (yesterday), then today I was dead I decided that last night's dose was the last! I'm on hhcg, so my wait is 48 hrs.-it's been 24 today, tomorrow night is 48. For some reason, today I was starving! I tried it all....4 liters of water, iced tea, hot tea! I thought I was going crazy. I think some of this may be tied to my wacky TOM...this month is was about 2 weeks early. Last month it was almost 2 weeks late, and the month before that it was 2 weeks early! Guess I am on the early/late rotation.

So..first day of this P3 will be Saturday 3/21. This round I went 25 days with doses. I had issues the entire round..starting from the beginning. I ate some things I shouldn't have and literally gained 12.8 pounds in 2 days. YEP..can't do processed anymore! This P2 may seem like a flop to some. Not to me..I made the best out of it and got to know my body better. P3 will be done in Biz's Boot camp so she can keep me in line (over on HTA). I plan on doing rx hcg next P2 which should start around the 8th or 9th of April :)

That Damn Whoosh Fairy was a bit too generous yesterday!

Happy Sunday- today is VLCD day 21, R2P2 for me-doing homeopathic. Yesterday, if you follow along, I had a super drop. Well, I think the whoosh fairy was too generous as I gained .4. I am not body probably said...WTF???!! I was only planning to go 21 days of doses, but this close to my goal (which is 155 for now) I am going to continue on. This round hasn't been as smooth sailing as R1..but it has all been a learning experience.

I did take measurements, and my inches lost is as slow as my pounds lost. I think it's because I am so close to goal, and fairly low body fat. I've only lost .5 of my waist and .25 of each calf (yeah..I know, it's wierd!), body fat is at an all time low of............................................................ 20.19%- yep..I'm just a hair out of the athletic range (that is 14%- 20%). So that being's all good. I know I am losing inches in places I don't the space between my waist and hips...right around my hips bones. :) I have no other choice to keep on aiming for my goal!! My overall goal is to get down into the 140's, if my body will let me. to do chores!

Uncharted Territory-at least since 1994!!

WOW..been on track this week. Sorry for the lack of posts. Have had decent weight loss, and with the coaching of a friend decided to do a Vitamin C flush (6-8 tablets of c for 3 days). I've been around sick people all last week and didn't want to get sick. Yesterday was day one of that flush and ..........I am down 2.4 lbs!!!! WOO HOOO....I am within 8.4 of my goal weight of 155! I am pretty excited! Sunday is 21 days. This P2 has been a battle! Not sure how far past day 21 I will continue...had been counting down until Thursday (3.19) as last dose...but it will depend how my body is dropping and how close to goal I am.

This week has been trial and error. R1 I never ate melba. This round-last week I tried adding it. NOt good...can't do melba. I think I have some kind of gluten intolerance..though not allergic. Good thing to know now!

It's Saturday..WOOO HOOO.....continuing on STRONG!

VLCD day 13 R2P2

The scale is going down! Since I was able to break my stall I am starting a pattern of one day is a big drop (a pound or more) and the next day is smaller...- .6. That's what it was today... -.6. I will take it! I've actually used this 2 weeks to get back where I should've started! Yep..I gained a bunch loading for this round. My body just does not tolerate the processed crap!! It's good to find out in between rounds instead of when I am trying to maintain- at least I think so!

I'm still aiming for the 140's- who knows if my body will like that number! I'm still working out-nothing overly strenuous, but moving! I carry a lot of muscle, and I'd like to keep what I have-it's good for me! Looking, looking, looking to get into the 150's by VLCD 21 which is a week from tomorrow! I will do this! Measurements and new photos tomorrow- curious to see where I am at! ~ Cheers

LCF= Low Carb Friends...a good forum with lots of info http://

VLCD day 12 R2P2

I've been a loser since I broke my stall-down a whole pound today and loving it!! If you haven't tried boiled radishes try them!! Over on LCF someone posted the recipe....boil in water for about 20 minutes or until soft when you poke with a knife...they taste very similar to potatoes! YES> bitter taste! It's a nice change I tell ya!

I am so focused on the 150's! I am feeling lean...losing inches I can tell. I am wearing my belt on the smallest notch I've ever worn it on. On Sunday, which is VLCD day 14 I am taking midway photos and measurements. My Phase 3 was a bit of a bust....but I learned from it and I am armed for my next P3. I did load prior to this P2 which put me up 10+ pounds. It was the processed crap I ate. My body just can't tolerate it. biggie, I will find alternatives. I do love the clean eating way...I just need to kee in control and make my own foods so I know what goes into them!

Alright..focus, focus, focus on the 150's- here I come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

VLCD day 10 update

WOW..can you say stall for the last 4 days. FINALLY today I am down 1.4 lbs. I didn't reach my goal to get to my LDW by VLCD day 7. I am now aiming for the 150's. Sure would be nice to be there by VLCD day 14 but we will see.
The stall could've been due to a lot of things..TOM coming very late? I also had a big tiling project that kicked my ass for 3 days-so it was like doing double workouts. Yesterday I made sure I ate close to 500 calories. Whatever I did worked and I am not questioning it. I am just happy to finally see the scale moving in the right direction.

Been keeping up with lots of water, tea, and focusing on good clean foods. At times it is just a huge mind game. Last round I felt skinny- this round...I don't have that feeling. My good friend pointed out that our bodies are like our cars- when it's a new car you aren't used to it but get used to driving it around and it doesn't seem new anymore. I am waiting for my mind to catch up with my body...still seeing the fatty in the mirror. Perhaps that's why the body stalled- trying to let me catch up?? Nice of the ol' body!!!!!!!!!!
