((hug)) Baz - you are doing really well hun. Depression is a horrible thing. Do you take medication for it. I know there is a lot of perceived stigma around mental health issues an taking medication, but from someone who took the plunge and has now been on medication for some time I would say it was the best thing I ever did. Clinical depression is a biological imbalance, although some things can help like exercise, sunlight etc it may be that you need more than that.

But you are here and trying and your attitude yesterday is perfect, even if a meal goes wrong just go back on track the next meal.

Thanks, Jacqui. I do take something. I am fine most of the time, and actually was off of it for most of the fall and felt great. The semester ended, life slowed to a crawl after 7 days a week of school/work/study, the holidays came and went, and the anxiety and depression crept right in. I'm back on my med and hoping I see some relief soon. So far this morning I feel pretty good.

I feel like I'm stuck in this weird cycle where I can't sleep, so I'm always tired, which makes me not want to do anything, which leads to naps and procrastination, which causes my mood to worsen as the day goes on and I get nothing done. The worst part of being depressed is I know what's happening but still have a hard time stopping and/or controlling it. Weird, I know.

Thanks for your support, I appreciate it so much. It's not something I talk about in real life. In fact, no one outside of my family and a close friend have any idea this has been going on.

Morning Everyone,

Just a quick fly by. I feel like crap and I think I might be getting the flu. My body aches and my head won't stop pounding and all I want to do is sleep.

I guess it could kind of be considered a blessing since I started P2 yesterday and I'm too sick to even miss food.

Going to make the little one breakfast and then crawl back into bed. Hope you're all doing well!

Hi all - quick check in for me too. I have an intern that started this week so it's been very busy at work. Still on plan and juicing until tomorrow. Then I'll be adding things back in slowly, mostly fruits and veggies.

Hey all... I have been very good doing my LC, but have lost track of what day back this is (8? 9?) hmmm....
What matters is that I have been good for all the days and I feel much better than I did in December.
I feel the pain of those of you talking about bread. My DH made bagels 2 times this week! I woke up to the smell of fresh baked carbs...


FF - hope you get better soon... I am waiting for my family to get over their colds ( including me!) so that we can get our flu shots.

Thanks ladies for all the well wishes!

I was actually starting to feel better yesterday, and then last night my tummy issues hit. This morning the stomach bug hit me in full effect. I'm miserable. I hope this passes quickly too. Going to keep it to liquids today I guess and hopefully that will keep me from having any major episodes.

I've lost almost 5 pounds since starting p2 on Wednesday though, so at least I have that.

It's awfully quiet in here. Don't tell me y'all have petered out already...it's only the second week of January! lol

I love the first snowfall as it always looks so pretty and fresh. Although it does make me want to curl up under a duvet and not do much. Oh well positives and negatives to everything I suppose

Morning all!!!! Hope everyone had a nice weekend. The weather was awesome here! Going to be in the 70s today which NEVER happens!! I do want at least one good snow this year though...

beach - I picked juice up daily from a place called Juiced Up so I didn't have to worry about any recipes or making it taste good. I wrote down what was in every juice and graded it on a scale of 1-10 so I would know which ones to re-create. I lost 7.1 total for the week (that was with TOM around for 5 of those days). I felt great and wasn't really ever hungry. Now we need to figure out which juicer to get...

FF - hope you feel better and congrats on the loss!

kitty - same weather here!

jacqui - I'm loving the weather here but also LOVE snow!!!!

Hi everyone! I am doing much better mood-wise, and am finally back on the wagon eating-wise as of today. I decided to ask my DH to join me in eating this way because he has been asking how he could help. He doesn't really need to lose weight, but it would be a big help to have someone here every day who really gets just how hard it is, not to mention supporting and helping each other out.

Hope all who are sick are feeling better, and enjoy your snow, Jacqui! I love snow!

Morning All!

I'm back to normal, thank goodness! That also means my appetite is back too, which sucks. I decided to add coffee back into my diet today even though we're not really supposed to have it with hcg. It makes me not hungry though, so I figure it's worth the risk if it keeps me from eating things I shouldn't be eating.

TOM should be here in another week too so that makes it even harder to get by on 500 calories only without coffee.

Anyhow, did everyone have a good weekend?

Baz - my BF got on board with me and it is a relief. We normally eat out for breakfast on Saturday mornings. He would always order potatos and bread to go with his meal and it is always tough for me to watch (like the commerical with the guy eating the donut and the lady is there with her meal and she grabs the donut out of his hand and crumbles it all over the table - that is how I always felt - lol). He had never liked Atkins but all of a sudden he realized it was the same as the Zone's Fat Burning Stage so now he's on board This past Saturday we both had steak and eggs w/tomato slices instead of potatoes and toast. We do not live together - but he is making low carb meals at home (from his Zone cook book) and is really liking what he cooks. It's kind of fun to go over there for dinner to see what he made.

Hope everyone has an awesome Monday and a great week!

well done...I bought a juicer but STILL have not used it...I think if I had unlimited money, I'd pick the bullet so you get the fiber etc...that said, I heard that makes juice chunky and that would gross me out knowing I have texture issues
