Multiple offers flowing in for partnerships and people giving me their contact info. Lesson I learned: Its all in my mind. It's how I perceive myself that creates my reality. This can apply to weight loss also. I can either choose to see myself as not good enough physically and be on the perpetual treadmill to an illusive number, or I can see myself as fantastic and only getting better by celebrating the journey along the way. How we perceive ourselves is what is going to hold the maintenance over time, at least for me. Can anyone else relate to this?
WOW!! this is fantastic!! So happy for you in making that change. It really is all in our minds, and how we choose to use it. Proud of you!!

I think your choice of protein was the best of the options, and you did great with that!!

I agree that I am in a zone right now, and don't want to rock the boat at this stage. I will ride it for awhile, and see if I continue to lose pounds or inches. I am adjusting my calories down, since you can really put away alot of cals on High Fat, low Carb.

Have a wonderful day all, I am also in meetings today.. so I will check in when I can.

it's so much our own perceptions that shape our reality! So happy for you not only recognizing this, but actually practicing it and seeing such wonderful immediate feedback! enjoying the journey along the way is a great way to approach life-I have a shirt that says "the journey is the destination".

Keep going! Even if you aren't losing a lot (which isn't the case, you are losing
,) the time to adjust to the new weight, while refueling is so valuable!

Vlcd3 underway. Added black (slightly watered down) coffee this morning which was good. I am a bit hungry first thing in the morning. Had my detox tea after that, and now some water. I did have massage yesterday, and I know that's a no-no, but with my neck I get them twice a week. I showered the lotion off afterwards, but truthfully I'm not a huge believer of the oils being absorbed through the skin. I'll try not to push it, but it's not super logical either.

Down to 171.8 today, so -2.2 last night. I'll take it . I know the first week is where I lose most of the weight so I'm hoping to be in the mid 160's by Monday...then I'll painfully and slowly try to lose 5-6 lbs over the last 2 weeks I'll be dosing. I know the drill . Hopefully I'll still lose the same 15-17 I usually do. That would be great!

Dropped my car off to the repair shop again yesterday, the last repair needed some more work and the new accident is now being fixed too. Driving a minivan for a while, with awful blind spots! There's a backup camera b/c of it, which is really weird for me!

Anyway, that's my update. I post more when I'm on a round, so forgive my chattiness. Accountability is my friend

Great losses Julie!!! Wow, that is awesome. I also don't think it is logical to avoid a massage because you may gain weight.. haha. .sorry, I think that is bunk. ANYWAY! I hope it is helping you with your neck!

Just keep on doing what you are doing, and enjoy the heck out of these first week losses, always fun!!..

I have not lost a bunch, but I am losing and my pants are really loose this week! I know I am losing inches although I did not measure.. oopps...

I will continue as long as I feel good, and I am losing. If I hit a stall or gain, I am finishing my round. I love hearing how all of you are doing!

Shari, Loretta, Gracie!! Where are ya!..

Oh HI PATI!! I know you are lurking...

Wow! Great post!!! And I totally agree 100% with you. When I'm at work meetings it is always me and about a 10 men. I always just remind myself that I'm the smartest one in the room and then they treat me just that way! Our minds can be either our biggest asset or our worst enemy

Great job Julie! I'm obsessed with food in P2 I cook all kinds of good things for the family while I eat P2 foods. It's really weird! Then when I'm in P3 I don't feel like cooking and nothing sounds good. I always want to eat out in P3

Hi Lovely Ladies!

Scale was at 203.6 this morning so it's coming back down. And, I was a bit rogue yesterday. I had an apple for lunch and then for dinner I had cabbage and corned beef. It was our St. Patty's Day meal for the family and I wanted to partake. Thankfully it didn't cause me any damage on the scale.

And someone asked me how long of a round I was doing - this is just a continuation of my round because I did a Planned Interruption. I'm not sure how long I will go - I guess until I can't take it anymore I would like to hit that 194.6 and go from there. So far I'm doing good though and not hungry.

Congrats Gracie!! I had corned beef also, and it was yummy!!! Glad it didn't affect your losses.. Just keep doing what you are doing, I am sure you will hit your goal, it is not far away!!

So true, and sometimes things happen in life to remind us of this. I just reordered a book called Infinite Possibilities (gave my book to my mom--it's that good and worth keeping) that describes what you just went through...a lot of our 'realities' are what we create in our mind that persuades our thoughts/decisions...what happens when we persuade our realities to be something else? Usually, it comes true in some way/shape/fashion at some time...so why not create and put positive thoughts out there? It worked for you and congrats for doing this! My hat is definitely off to you, you're making the best choices in situations that you don't have control of which can be tricky in P2...but you're making it work!!

So true! WTG Gracie with losing again!! I'll be joining you soon...

Deb~I'm with you, taking an extended break for now but will definitely jump back into P2 by Sunday I'm thinking. I have a function to go to this weekend, then after that's over I should be okay. The only glitch is that track starts next Saturday, but I'm bringing veggies and fruit trays to the first meeting so that'll help. I'm thinking of adding chicken breast and turkey sausages for grilling so that I feel like I'm eating well too with the other families!

Julie~same to you, congrats on losing again!! Yup, you know the drill...it's best to take advantage of the first week's losses as they're usually the best.

Shebasmudder~ how'd the fat fast go? Extra protein always help when I'm feeling more hunger, especially in P2...but usually it's more head hunger than actual hunger when I really think about it. It still helps 'cure' that though so I still do it

I'm up a bit on the scale today ...so need to do a CD. It's a long story, and not worth typing as there's really no legitimate excuse, to be totally frank with myself. Doing a CD or 2, and eating continued P3 will bring the scale down so my starting weight will be much closer to what I've created to be 'the elusive 160's' again But, but...after reading the above positive posts...I'm confident I will get there when I do P2 again! It's really something I can control...so no more excuses!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Although I learned a lot these past couple days about field-related things, I learned even more about myself. Love unexpected stuff like that.

FYI, if you ever are traveling while doing P2, Whole Foods is your best friend. I decided to forgo the conference am talk to play hooky and go get me some healthy stuff! Enjoyed tasty shrimp ceviche (all ingredients P2 friendly) and bought some lean (cooked) beef for tonight from the deli that looked fairly pain/non-sauce and sugar laden. Plan: chug water all day today and tomorrow and hope my somewhat off plan eating isn't harmful. At least I try to keep my cals low.

Gracie: I completely understand what you mean. I often had to give presentations in front of ALL men, all in positions "higher up the food chain." However, none of them treated me any "less then" and actually treated me like an equal once they figured out I knew what I was talking about. I think my mind has been on automatic put me down mode!

When did your round start/how long have you been on a PI?

Deb: That's so true about cals and high fat. That WOE can be T-A-S-T-Y! And I know I'm prone to overindulge on it. Congrats on being aware of the things that can trip you up! You said you're doing a round now? Are you injecting/drops/etc on LCHF? Curious

Julie: Congrats on your loss! 2.2 is huge! You mentioned "over the days you'll be dosing"- do you (inject/drops/etc) daily or are you on a different plan?

Shari: Being up a bit is OK too! Whatever it is that caused the scale to reflect a higher number, just remember it isn't fat. It can't be, our bodies can't physiologically store it that quickly. However, "less-healthy" foods contain more sodium, additives, etc- might just be a lot of water? Don't be too harsh with yourself. Sometimes our body perceives reasons as valid reasons to eat. We're all learning new ways

thanks Doglovingal. You're certainly a great addition to our group! Thanks for the info regarding P2-friendly food at Whole Foods. I have one not too far from my job, I don't go often but I always find little treasures when I go and kick myself for not going more. Now you're reminding me again why I should LOL

Hey, ladies !

I'm just popping in for a sec before dashing off to pick up DS. I saw my doc today and he said, out of all his patients, I have lost the most weight ! He told me I looked good and the weight loss was noticeable !

Hey, Shari - hang in there, lady ! You got this ! I've lost 4 pounds so far on my fat fast with one more day left ! I'll have to change my stats later !

Deb: That's so true about cals and high fat. That WOE can be T-A-S-T-Y! And I know I'm prone to overindulge on it. Congrats on being aware of the things that can trip you up! You said you're doing a round now? Are you injecting/drops/etc on LCHF? Curious

Julie: Congrats on your loss! 2.2 is huge! You mentioned "over the days you'll be dosing"- do you (inject/drops/etc) daily or are you on a different plan?

Shari: Being up a bit is OK too! Whatever it is that caused the scale to reflect a higher number, just remember it isn't fat. It can't be, our bodies can't physiologically store it that quickly. However, "less-healthy" foods contain more sodium, additives, etc- might just be a lot of water? Don't be too harsh with yourself. Sometimes our body perceives reasons as valid reasons to eat. We're all learning new ways
You are doing so well, I am happy for you!!! I am doing injections 150 IU and am probably going to restart my round next week. I did 23 VLCD before my Planned Interruption.

Usually, it comes true in some way/shape/fashion at some time...so why not create and put positive thoughts out there? It worked for you and congrats for doing this! My hat is definitely off to you, you're making the best choices in situations that you don't have control of which can be tricky in P2...but you're making it work!!




So true! WTG Gracie with losing again!! I'll be joining you soon...

Deb~I'm with you, taking an extended break for now but will definitely jump back into P2 by Sunday I'm thinking. I have a function to go to this weekend, then after that's over I should be okay. The only glitch is that track starts next Saturday, but I'm bringing veggies and fruit trays to the first meeting so that'll help. I'm thinking of adding chicken breast and turkey sausages for grilling so that I feel like I'm eating well too with the other families!

Julie~same to you, congrats on losing again!! Yup, you know the drill...it's best to take advantage of the first week's losses as they're usually the best.

Shebasmudder~ how'd the fat fast go? Extra protein always help when I'm feeling more hunger, especially in P2...but usually it's more head hunger than actual hunger when I really think about it. It still helps 'cure' that though so I still do it

I'm up a bit on the scale today ...so need to do a CD. It's a long story, and not worth typing as there's really no legitimate excuse, to be totally frank with myself. Doing a CD or 2, and eating continued P3 will bring the scale down so my starting weight will be much closer to what I've created to be 'the elusive 160's' again But, but...after reading the above positive posts...I'm confident I will get there when I do P2 again! It's really something I can control...so no more excuses!
Great plan Shari!!!! Just keep on looking at the prize!!!

Hey, Shari - hang in there, lady ! You got this ! I've lost 4 pounds so far on my fat fast with one more day left ! I'll have to change my stats later !
You have done so well with your FAT FAST!! that is awesome! I am losing but not much because I am not really watching my calories.. Maybe If I did, I would do better...

I am just THRILLED to not be hungry, and that is so important for me to keep on the straight path... I do miss losing daily, so that is why I will most likely return to my injections next week. If I am already deep in ketosis, then P2 should be much easier!!!

Back later, have a great day all!!

Julie, I hope you had a wonderful day 3!

Good morning! Scale read 201.2 this morning so I'm getting closer to my LDW. I'm trying to keep my menu as clean as possible without going crazy. Yesterday I had coffee/cream/sweetener for breaky, ground chicken, cucumbers, apple for lunch, 5 Ritz crackers as a snack, and dinner was steak with sauteed mushrooms and broccolli. I drank about 5 bottles of water and one glass of diet pepsi. So, not too bad. I still haven't persuaded myself to exercise I wake up everyday with the intention to and then somehow I lose my gusto

I have a sinus headache/cold thing going on today

Well you are doing fine! Just hope that cold/ headache does not turn into more for you.. ugh.. you will be back in Onederland very soon.

I finally have started exercising again, being in Ketosis is giving me so much energy!!!

Deb~WTG on exercising and doing well in P3! Yup, P2 is easier when in ketosis.

Gracie~congrats on your loss too! You'll be hitting your LDW very, very soon

Julie~how's it going? Do you like injections better? I ordered drops again because it's less expensive and I'm on a budget but I still want to try injections.

Doglovingal~hope it's still going well for you too.


Scale went down, not much but I'm not counting cals either so not too surprised. As long as it goes down and not up, I'm good. Hope everyone have a great Hump Day

Hello my beautiful LCFs! Not sure if you guys remember as I have been lost in the abyss for an extremely long time!

So I don't have as much time as I used to to be online any longer. A new position with alot more work rarely leaves me time to post. I do try to read your updates as often as possible. I am so proud of each and everyone of you! You are all doing pretty awesome on your plans.

Me? I'm a mess!! I have gained so much weight. I am in a funk. I have no desire to do any sort of diet. I have no idea what happened. I will tell you guys something tho...Although my food intake has been horrible, I think the only thing keeping me from gaining too much is the simple fact that I love Zumba. I do it because to me, it's fun more so than exercise. HOWEVER, I got sick about 3 weeks ago with a bladder infection, then the week after that I had my wisdom tooth pulled and last week I was just a bum. Yep 3 weeks with not eating healthy at all and not exercising has put me in a bigger funk....I felt so desperate that I ordered homeopathic hcg. While I know that works I am also afraid of it (I HAVE NO IDEA WHY!!!! - I USED IT FOR MY VERY FIRST ROUND AND IT WORKED WONDERS....) So with much consideration and a lil help from my LCF hero (Deb) I am finally at a point where I am ordering the real stuff. Not sure if I will do the injections or the sublingual yet but I am going to order the real stuff today!

I haven't weighed. I haven't really thought of what day I will start. But I do know that I know me and I know I couldn't do a round longer than the shortest round one can do on the protocol.

I have completely forgotten EVERYTHING about the diet (its been that long). But I am trying to hype myself up by watching a few YouTube videos here and there. Today I finally got a glimmer of excitement back in me...Enough to make me want to order my stuff!

Now comes my begging....Would you guys mind taking me back?
I need the help, the accountability, the day to day communication...I NEED YOU!!!

Sincerely....Pati

P.S. - Wrote this at work with a few minutes between meetings - I apologize for being all over the place!

Enjoyed tasty shrimp ceviche (all ingredients P2 friendly) and bought some lean (cooked) beef for tonight from the deli that looked fairly pain/non-sauce and sugar laden. Plan: chug water all day today and tomorrow and hope my somewhat off plan eating isn't harmful. At least I try to keep my cals low.

Gracie: I completely understand what you mean. I often had to give presentations in front of ALL men, all in positions "higher up the food chain." However, none of them treated me any "less then" and actually treated me like an equal once they figured out I knew what I was talking about. I think my mind has been on automatic put me down mode!

When did your round start/how long have you been on a PI?

Deb: That's so true about cals and high fat. That WOE can be T-A-S-T-Y! And I know I'm prone to overindulge on it. Congrats on being aware of the things that can trip you up! You said you're doing a round now? Are you injecting/drops/etc on LCHF? Curious

Julie: Congrats on your loss! 2.2 is huge! You mentioned "over the days you'll be dosing"- do you (inject/drops/etc) daily or are you on a different plan?

Shari: Being up a bit is OK too! Whatever it is that caused the scale to reflect a higher number, just remember it isn't fat. It can't be, our bodies can't physiologically store it that quickly.

I'm doing injections, 150 iu for now. AJ's is another good "on the run" option. I love grabbing Boars Head ever roast chicken breast (usually a quarter lb-4 oz is what I get). Satisfying, on plan and usually pretty easy to find . You're doing great while away! I'll be on a weekend getaway with my family next weekend, so I'm taking notes .

Are you doing FF and hcg together? Hmmm...I'm curious. WTG on impressing your Dr!! And being "noticeably" thinner?

The injections do take a bit of work (cleaning, mixing, measuring, dosing, ...) but I do like them better. I can eat, drink, have mints or gum, anytime! I hope they'll suppress hunger better and help with stabilization too, but that remains to be seen. you'll get back down. It takes time, but you know what to do. Each stage has it's own challenges, but at least you're int the fight and working on it. It's the giving up that really causes damage.

Gracie-you're doing great! I hear you on the exercise! I need to get back to the gym, but I am kind of out of the habit and a bit tired lately. My workout buddy comes home tomorrow, so I'll likely be back then. How did the PI go? I'm considering one while my inlaws visit... did you gain much? ill be watching to see how the rest of the vlcds work out. I've read mixed reviews on the actual weight loss, but it cant hurt the stabilization to re-stick the ldw number for a while. Keep up the good work!

Deb-you're refueling and resting. That's important too! Even though losing is fun, eating is fun too! You'll be back to P2 soon enough .

I'm doing well. I've been skipping the exercise, but don't want to keep doing that! I'm not hungry this morning! I will dose in a few, but I'm not sure if I should lower it to see, or just stick with 150 for now? I've been a bit off in my measurements, how do you know there isn't air at the tip? It's been "around" 150... .how precise does it need to be?

Down a bit to 170.2 so almost back to the 160's.... Only 11 more to go to the 150's. on day 4, there's hope!

PATI!!! so glad to 'see' you again Girl, you know you're always welcome and never forgotten LOL. Well one thing you know for sure, hcg will transform the body like no other plan...it's strict but totally worth it if you can stick with it for at least 21 days. You tube vlogs have really helped me get through some days where I wanted other food so that's a great start for motivation

Julie~ congrats on the loss! You're just a pee away from the 160's the 150's is very much attainable by the end of this round!!

This is great Julie! you are losing!! It won't be long and you will be in the 50's again!

I dose 150 but never worry about it being exact. I don't think it matters that much! I always do a little flick to have the air bubbles come to the top, then squirt a tiny bit out to get rid of the air, it comes in a bit below 150. I got hungry early in the round and went down to 125. I think that was too low for me, so next week I will go with something in between..

I agree that RX is easier on your day, not worrying about what time you can eat etc etc..

So Pati! Are you starting with HHCG and then doing RX? Congrats on keeping up the Zumba! I can so relate to being in a crappy place where you don't feel good about yourself. YOU can make the changes you need, and you know how.. We are all here for the same thing! SUPPORT!!!!

Can't wait to see your progress! Please keep posting!

Pati-I'm trying Rx for the first time too! I was scared too, but I'm happy with it now. Takes a bit of getting used to...but I think it's a good idea to try it at least once. I've done several round of the hhcg, and I've always wondered if the Rx would be better...I hope it is!

Glad to have such a great group here!

Good morning all! I just wanted to jump in for a quick check in. I have completely lost my cravings, and I am so happy. I am eating good foods, and have very little hunger, but the best part is that my hubby made pizza last night and I had NO DESIRE to even taste it. NONE.

This is so exciting to me, because it will help when I get going on my round again Monday. I will eat full fat everything this weekend, and be ready to go Monday!

Hope everyone is doing well, I have a full day so will check back later.

Well one thing you know for sure, hcg will transform the body like no other plan...it's strict but totally worth it if you can stick with it for at least 21 days. You tube vlogs have really helped me get through some days where I wanted other food so that's a great start for motivation

Julie~ congrats on the loss! You're just a pee away from the 160's the 150's is very much attainable by the end of this round!!
Shari!!!

Welcome back Tommyswife! I too am gearing up to start a round. When are you going to begin yours? Would be nice to have someone on the same page (or even same chapter) when starting! WELCOME BACK!

Can't wait to see your progress! Please keep posting!
Hiya love....I have my bottle of homeopathic stuff at home. I can not do it with that...I placed my orders for the real stuff yesterday. I think I will wait to receive rx stuff and start out with that. I printed out Pounds and Inches to get reacquainted. I have been saving recipes (one huge factor for me during this diet was boredom from the same foods over and over....Going to play around this time with recipes), and I have the Omaha stuff ready to read as well. Can you guys tell I am trying to "arm" myself with information?

Hi Julie!!
I've done both rx and hhcg. I have no idea why I am so afraid of the hhcg this time So I decided to wait to have all my rx stuff and do a round that way.

I actually bought enough for 3 rounds (just to have) and I have the hhcg as well. If all that doesn't help me get the 30 lbs off, I don't know what will!!!

Good morning lovelies!

Deb-you sound like you're in the zone!! Happy weekend, low cal days will get the scale moving quickly again!

Gracie-you're almost to onedeerland again!! Tomorrows your day!!

Patti-so happy to have you back! I'm planning another round already...trying to order more stuff myself! It works, and I'm planning to work it throug maintenance with exercise to goal for good this year!

I'm down to 169 today...vlcd5. I'm pleased with that!! I just hope there are decent losses the next few weeks too. I know week 1 is the best, and I'm enjoying it! I did watch a couple youtube before/afters for inspiration. Wow! I'm inspired to want goal again! Not just settle for 155 because it'll be easier to maintain...I'll be mulling this over. Also mulling how long to wait between Rx rounds after so many years...

Have a good one ladies!

Gracie!!! You will be there tomorrow!!

Pati.. so happy to see you post 2 days in a row!.. OMG!.. love it!! you are going to rock it girl, you know how to do this, and a refresher course is a good thing for you. Just go in with a fresh mind, like this is your first round! You can do it!..

Julie! Fantastic loss!! So happy you are enjoying RX! I will start with my injections tomorrow, so I can get going Monday morning. I am going to attempt staying lower than I have been in cals in past rounds. Since I have no hunger, I am hoping I can do it!..
