Oh Shari, I know!!! In P2, the daily encouragement is so strong with the scale. In P3, it is boring... and I guess that is a GOOD THING. I am ready to lose again though, but will wait another week or so to even attempt some cutting back. Have a marvelous Monday!

Morning Deb, you are really doing a good job as well. You ladies are really motivating me and I really admire all of the tools you are using to make this a successful round. Kudos to you

I think she left after all of that . I tried to be gentle w/ her, and hope I didn't drive her away. I know we all need support, and even though she was young, and brash, she likely still needs support. Sigh.

Deb-yes!! boring is good in P3, right? You're doing so well!! I can't believe it's our third week of P3! It's going fast (much faster than P2!! ). Are you thinking of a new round soon? So exciting. You're in the zone, you're motivated and committed. Such a great place to be!!

Thank you Loretta!! I am playing follow the leader in this last round and was motivated by Maggie! She got me thinking that I could do another round. Then Julie did the round with me, and that was fun! haha.. Hope you are having success also!

Julie you were not harsh AT ALL. She deserved so much more, but YES, she also needs support. Have you read her blog? She is eating Atkns bars 3 times a day ( college student on the run? ) and now is considering a fat fast too. Nothing wrong at ALL with doing that, I just would not call what she is doing Atkins plus HCG.

ANYWAY!!! I do think she left, and that is too bad, she just had a really bad delivery and rubbed lots of people wrong. She did have some good info to offer, just did not offer it in the best way. I loved how you handled it, no worries there!!

Yes, P3 is going fast! VERY UNLIKE P2!! That is the only reason I am not really ready to do another yet. I want to lose, YES, but P2 is soooooooooo boring and seems to last forever........

Day by day right now, I am loving eating FOOD, and fats so I will most likely get through P3/4 then see how I feel. I know I am going to do another round, but it may be later if I feel I can't lose well on my own. STAY TUNED!...

Will weigh in on Saturday. I think weighing in during the week, when I get up at 4am, is really not accurate. SO, my official weigh in's go back to Saturday, and at least I know I will be sleeping the normal amount of time. I feel like inches are leaving me though, YES!!!

I pulled an old shirt out of the closet, that is in perfect shape, but I could not wear because it wouldn't go around my ample rear end......now it does!..

SO!! No matter what the scale would have said, today is a good day..

Thanks Gracie, yep, 4am to work at 6. I could sleep a bit later, but I like to have coffee and read before work. This could be why I am so tired though..

I think I have a whole store in my closet!! I am going to take a look when I get home and see what else fits me now!.. YAY!

Dude!! That's so exciting!! You know when you "shop" your closet you'll already like what's there, and you can't beat the prices!! I love that!! I actually have a pair of capris I've never worn (were a clearance item at Aero and the syle I like) and now they fit!! I'm so happy!! There is a top that was too tight b/4 and now is too big to look good . That's a bummer, but I'll still take it !!!

Happy Hump Day!! Enjoy the shrinkage!!

You could always read in the morning on the treadmill. Then you'd get your workout done for the day!!! I should take my own advice

WOW, this is great!! Thank you HCG!... I don't think there is anything in there that I have not worn that would be TOO BIG, but you never know huh?... keep it up Julie!

Thanks Shari!!! I DID go through and find more things I can wear to work! I am so thrilled! The good thing is these things are classic, so not out of style .. haha.. ok maybe some of them, but I won't wear those!

Hope you are doing well with your round!!!

Peeked at the scale because Hubby left it in my way this morning..... I am still within my window!!! Saturday is official P4 and I have decided to roughly follow my WW plan I was following before to see how that goes with added carbs. I do want to continue to lose, but not deplete myself before my next round.

Still eating to hunger, and I can tell I am hungrier!! Day by day!! Everyone have a wonderful Thursday!!

good for you!! Hey you can wear the older, out of style clothes around the house...just cause it feels so darn good to fit them again. I think that's an excellent plan regarding doing WW for P4...betcha still lose.

Funny about the bathroom trips yesterday, it helped for exercise.

Nice!! you're doing so well!! A great example of how once you're mentally prepared it just falls into place!! I'm so excited for you!! It's like you have the key and are opening the door to a whole new world!! So excited for P4 too!!

I was inspired by your smaller clothing victory last night. Dh likes to stop in at Eddie Bauer to check their clearance rack (we were at the mall for dinner and dessert!!). Anyway, I tried on this cute little jacket in a Medium (definite progress for me!!). It was big . So, I went back and got the Small, just to try it. It fits!! And is still a tad big (good for a jacket)!! Dh made me buy it (good price) and just b/c it's a small!! I also got hiking capris in a size 6!! They're stretchy, but still!! A 6? In hiking wear? Crazy!! I'm such a pear that pants are always my challenge!! Thank you for inspiring me!!

Thanks Shari!! I did find some awesome PJ's that I can wear around the house the would not fit over my behind, feels good now!..

I am excited about the next step for sure!! I hope to lose, even if only a pound or so a week! THEN, ready for my next round sometime before the holidays........

Awe thanks Meek! I won't say it is really easy, because it is not! Just trying to continue where I left off before P2. I have learned alot from watching videos of course, but actually living the life is another thing! WE LEARN every day!

Hope all is well with you!!
