Shari, you girls who commute have my total respect!!! I would just go nuts in a car that long.. or a bus or a train, or anything!! More power to you and PATI!!!
Thanks guys! but dont be to jealous.. i feel like iv been in limbo for the month of march. I left on my interruption feb 13 came back feb 23. B4 left i had lost 27bls, when i came back i had gained 10lbs. So i am finally back to my original weight from when i left.. lol. That was a mouthful .

so for me when i get off 5 more lbs i will feel like i am making progress again. Does that make sense? Dont get me wrong, I am happy about the lost. I am so happy that the first round wasnt just a fluke. here i am doing it again and its working, that in itself is fantastic.

Meek, are you a couponer too? Are you eating calories based on your BMR?

Hey Marva. I forgot to congratulate you on your HUGE release . Keep up the good work, lady.

No, I am not a couponer, but I'm going to start soon . I need to save all the money I can.

I am eating way below my BMR but whatever helps me get this weight off!!!!

Yes Marva, I think we can all understand what you are saying... it happens to all of us.. that is why I feel like when I get into the 70s I feel like I have finally gotten going again. I got all the way down to 181 or something like that and then I sabotaged myself... yes, I was sick and yes, I had to do a round of steriods, but I really just gave up the hard trying at that point.

So now after almost 2 days of eating up the house I am back up in the 190's again! GRRRRRRRR... so unhappy about that.. but I am hoping and praying that it will drop off like it did before... if it is slower, I will accept that of course, but I want to be at my goal by sometime in the summer. We shall SEE!!!

Thanks girls.... well grand total of gain is 5 pounds. SOOOOO I have to lose that plus 20 to hit my mini goal... I was hungry this morning... grrr.. may have to adjust my dose. I AM sleeping better, but I dream like a crazy person!....

At least with wierd dreams, I know I am getting some deep sleep!! Before I never had dreams, because I could not sleep deep enough or long enough to have the REM sleep. So for THIS benefit, HCG is worth it alone.

ALSO, my BP has been down for 3 days now, and I know it is the HCG. I have been recording it several times a day for weeks. These last 3 days in the morning it has been normal. Before that it was always high in the morning. Maybe since I am sleeping better, my BP is going down in the AM. Could be??

Also, my afternoon BP yesterday was down, so YEAH!!!! another benefit for ME.. now to get the hunger under control, and I will be all for this!!!

I wake up hungry in HCG as well. My morning cup of tea or coffee always takes that away

Woohoo on the BP! Weight loss will help that too. You are already hitting the benefits

Thank you Jackie, I had my coffee earlier, but when I got to work I just downed a GIANT glass of Iced tea and I'm not hungry anymore... I am very happy about the BP, I know my doc was really wanting to drug me up!.. no no no!

Thanks Shari, I sure hope it comes off fast, because it has really bloated me... oh well, I've been here before, I know what to do.

Hey Deb. It went well (check out my journal ). I released .8 this morning. I stayed up a little late; ended up eating about 470 extra cals (net total 1335) . Anyways, I'm happy. The scale is moving in the right direction.

I'm taking my (bleep) to bed early tonight too so I can dream about 194.0!

We can do it!!!
