Just a small loss this week but TOM showed up last night so I'm pretty sure I'll have a big jump down after he's gone.

2f2f, you are kicking booty! So proud of you!

Down a little bit this week - I'll take it! Well, my determination to stick with Atkins didn't last long! lol I started a new diet plan yesterday. I was so sick of everything about it that I needed a break. So I'm trying something different. We'll see how it goes!

beach - i loved beets in mine when mixed with apples and oranges. It was great. What other things have you tried? I have all sorts of combinations I can give you. I wrote down all the juices that I had and rated them on a scale of 1-10. I have my food journal with that info in it at home. let me know if you want me to send you that info. I can give it to you here (or text or in facebook). So glad you're doing that!! Sorry for the issues right now . Oh and mix the kale with apples and pineapple maybe. Takes the bitterness out. Oranges and carrots go great with anything. When you do veggies always make sure to add fruits in to help with the taste.

Hey everyone else - schools are closing early here which is a pain in the rear. Just a quick check in for me and hope you all have a great weekend!

not a fan of the beet
so the recipe was beet (stem and all), grapefruit, pineapple (sounds like it would cover any bad taste), carrot and spinach....added orange, apple, blueberries and strawberries...and more blueberries...to choke it down...I now have about a half a gallon of this juice
I will try kale tomorrow since I had mean green and now have to finish the beet

Morning All!

Beach, the thought of beet juice is what keeps me from trying those pre order juice fasts. lol Just the thought makes me gag.

Fit2010, great loss!

As for me, I'm still doing the hcg but to be pefectly honest, it was a waste of my money this round. I've been cheating left and right this past week. Could be because TOM is in the house, but honestly I'm not even ravenously hungry. I just want food. And I want food that isn't on the hcg plan. And I have completely lost my will power to resist.

After trying every day this week to stay cheat free, and failing every day, I seriously considered just throwing in the towel and going back to regular LC.

But then I woke up this morning and thought to myself, if I do this..if I give up now and go back to atkins...I'll probably over eat for the first week and gain even more weight back and I just can't do that.

So I've decided to just extend my hcg round for another 3 weeks and commit to stay cheat free for the rest of the round. I'm fasting today to try to get my hunger under control. Pray for me. I don't want to blow it again.

The good news is that I did go out walking yesterday for about 3 miles which I haven't done for soooo long. I plan to do it again today.

I'm taking this fasting one hour at a time. I made this decision at 9:30 this morning so I'll be checking in here every hour to report my progress. I apologize ahead of time for the numerous random posts you'll see from me all day. lol But I need to be held accountable so that I don't ruin the day with a cheat like I have been doing all week. I'll check in again at 10:30!

you got this FF

I feel just the same...and when I cheated...it was a slippery slope. Get your three weeks and you will be fine and be able to have a great P3...just look at this...3 weeks...pftttt...totally doable...find some fun and new P2 foods...you are getting bored.

I am telling you...the strawberry sorbet...to DIE for
Stir-fry shrimp and celery or what ever vegie
"fried Chicken" melba and herb coated baked chicken tenders
I started making vinegar/pickle cucumbers with a "hamburger" that I STILL eat
meat balls...another yummy.
I made stuff ahead and had it ready and it helped keep me on

So yeah...beet juice ... Kale...not so bad

Checking in for my first hour of fasting. Success! lol Just gotta keep it up for the rest of the day.

Kitty and Beach, thank you for your support! It's going to help me get back on track! You're right Beach, it's only 3 weeks! I can do this!

Can you tell me how to make the strawberry sorbet again, please?

Oh and Beach, you are so right. I think my problem is not having my meals prepared ahead of time. The first week of my round I had all my meats portioned out before I started and I think that's why it was easy for me to stick to it the first week. (And why I lost like 7 pounds the first week)

I think tomorrow I'm going to spend the day planning and portioning out my meals for the rest of the round, and precooking for the entire week so that I can't deviate from plan at all. Good call, good call.
