That is amazing Jan! You are doing so well on this. Quick couple of questions...did you follow Simeon's to the tee? Also how long did you do your phase 2?

I am considering trying the HCG however, now that it is getting close to Christmas etc. and I have a baby shower planned in two weeks I am trying to determine if it is feasible to do after that even though I would have a couple of Christmas lunches in there.

I love watching your progress!

In April, I weighed in at 243. I started My 1st round then, April 7, and loaded for 2.5 days. I did 38 days after that, for the 1st round. Lost 33 pounds.
R1P3 lasted 27 days. I stabilized at 210 pounds.
I skipped the P4 round this 1st time and went right back to 2 days of loading, I was so excited about LOSING!!!
So...R2P2...after 2 days of loading I was back up to 217.5. (I can LOAD really well!!!!) Then I did a REALLY LONG round. I went for 59 more days of VLC. I ended that round at 179.8.
R2P3 went VERY WELL. I ended at that exact weight after exactly 21 days.
R2P4....this time I did the phase 4 , as the plan calls for. started at 178.8 and ended at 180.4. Within my 2 pound window. This round I did for 42 days.
R3P2...I loaded my way up to 193.6!!!!! And it all came back off within 2 days od VLC. Today was day 26...and I weighed in this morning at 167.8.
I am absolutely THRILLED with this diet!!!!
I want to get back to 158-160....so, not far to go.

The 1st 2 rounds, I did ABSOLUTELY by the book. Except for not doing the P4 the 1st time.

This round has been by the book so far. But....this weekend we are going to Sioux Falls Friday night for a birthday party. Dh and I are goung to Ruby Tuesday befor we go to the bar though. And I am going to eat what I alsays eat when we go there. BUT.....I am still going to do the drops all the way through it. Just going to consider it going off plan for a 1/2 day. I want this to be my last round. So, I will just wait and see what happens after this weekend.
There are some really good threads in the HCG thread. There is the "stick to absolutely" thread and the "rebel" thread. BOTH ARE FANTASTIC!!! One is absolute structure and one is assolute tweeking. Whatever works for you.

Hope this works to answer any ???'S

ok....so I definately have this "good guy/bad guy" thing going on lately. One guy is on one shoulder....the other is on the other shoulder. eat this/no....eat/that....well. I guess it could be worse. they could be telling me to push the cat in the dryer. he's just a LITTLE curious when the dryer door is open...what can I say????
OK.....I will not do that. Now, if I could just get the snacking under control. Of course it does'nt help when I bake!!!
Made some low carb cookies yesterday. WAY GOOD!!! AND some low carb corn bread...WOW!!!! It's a little carbier than I'm comfortable with....so that's probly why it was SO GOOD!!!! That recipee came off of Maries site. I have tried a few of her things....pretty good.

WOOHOOHOOIE!!!!! Let the LOSSES begin!!! I am so excited for you!!!!! There are so many knowledgable people on the hcg thread....I'll help you with any questions you have...but there is a LOT I do not know about.
Like...say for example when it gets to TOM. I havn't seen TOM for a few years, so it did'nt really affect me. And if you are on any meds....someone else more than likely is also....

scale was at 166.2 this morning.

I wonder what exactly started the ball rolling again. I am officially 6.2 pounds away from "goal".
I'm not sure if I will re-evaluate then or not.

Yes let the losses start! I am like you Jan, no TOM issues for me for the last few years so I don't have to deal with that. No meds as well so hopefully nothing will affect the HCG. I have been reading the boards it seems like forever and I see everyone has great advice.

You must be so excited to be close to goal!

real clean eating today. I'm so close to goal....I can taste it. AND with thanksgiving coming....I am really going to be SUPER carefull !!!

I did get a jump start on baking today for thanksgiving. AND everything went in the freezer.
Butter biscuits from Maries site. Corn bread from the same place. Blueberry muffins. I am going to make an additional stuffing out of the corn bread, bwsides the traditional sage one. I am going to use the butter biscuits for the vege pizza. dh will have pillsbury crescent rolls for his "crust" but I will do the butter biscuits. I baked them in my muffin top pan, so they re the PERFECT size for this.

Tomorrow, maybe I will make a few more dishes. I don't care if I have to pop them in the freezer. I have a VERY small kitchen....so prepping is a way for life for me a WORK and at HOME.

I have high hopes for the scale in the morning. I never weigh myself at night...hate to see that high number . But, tonight was not to bad a number at all
