I decided to do a short round of P2 (Omaha version) because I can't seem to stop eating I was attempting JUDDD but every DD would turn into a binge day. I loaded over the weekend and today is VLCD# 1. Wish me luck ladies!!!

You can sooo do this Gracie as you know you can. Focus, focus, focus and not getting sick would help. Lots of others dosing on the Hcg Thread so you are not alone.

Thanks for your support Maggie! I have had too many medical issues lately! The stupid acid reflux is the worst but it's been much better thanks to the Nexium. The costochondritis seems to be much better too. Doctor said it will just take time and to quit picking up my 42 pound baby!!! LOL

Good morning Today is LCD #2 and so far, so good. I'm usually good the first few days and then the weekend challenges me. Praying I can stay the course and finish this short round cheat-free! I also just realized TOM is due this weekend Hoping it doesn't cause me any troubles. I should've started after the weekend but I seriously couldn't stand myself anymore I feel like a pin cushion cause I'm so bloated! It's getting better though. Hoping to be back in my comfort zone by Friday and then start moving down from there. I'm so tired of the losing and gaining of the same 5-10 lbs. I wish I could find that excitement and motivation I had on my first round!!!

Thanks Melanie and Shari - I appreciate all your support

Yesterday went well - I can feel the carb bloat leaving. My tummy is still bloated but like I said TOM is due soon. Today is LCD #3 and I'm still feeling pretty good. Following the Omaha plan is way less stressful because I get to eat a little more and mix my veggies. I'm also drinking one Powerade Zero every day to keep my electrolytes in balance. I need to start taking my supplements again too.

Yesterday's Menu:
B: coffee/half-n-half/equal
L: turkey burger/mushrooms/mustard
Snack: apple
D: ground turkey sauteed w/onions

I love the Omaha plan..much more freedom with what looks like the same weight loss. I hate TOM..it totally took my hhcg groove away...

Menu looks good!

YES! Much more freedom I made a really yummy lunch - ground turkey breast sauteed with onions and mushrooms I added two stackers dill pickles on the side and some dark brown mustard. I didn't feel deprived at all!

Speaking of TOM, he just showed up at my house I should've known because I woke up at 2:15 a.m. sweating my butt off! That usually means my hormones are all whack I'm praying the sugar/carb monster stay away from me the next couple days

I hated TOM when I would get it. I'm sure many would/will frown when I say I don't get it anymore cuz of the bc I am on
I'll get symptoms from time to time and spotting but its such a relief to the way my menses were before! There was a time I had it for over 30 days NONSTOP!!!

I don't envy you guys! But I do feel for you!!!

Scale down -1.6 lbs. this morning - wooo hooo TOM is being a PITA! I spotted yesterday and so far today, nothing. I think the hcg messes with my cycle. I can definitely feel the bloat going away. I just love how the hcg works! Today is LCD#4 and I'm still feeling good and ready to keep going. I'm hoping to stay the course this weekend and behave. We have DS's football game on Saturday @ 4 pm and then my DD cheers on Sunday @ 3:30 pm. But I have to be there for 3 games on Sunday with the cheerleaders. I'm trying to avoid all parties and drinking activities this weekend We were invited to a shrimp boil on Saturday that we may go to. Shrimp is definitely on plan so if I couple that with some grilled veggies I should be fine. I just need to abstain from the beer

Yesterday's Menu
B: coffee/ half-n-half/equal
Snack: gala apple
L: ground turkey breast w/mushrooms & onions
D: meatballs in tomato sauce

I don't think I got enough water in yesterday but I did have 2 Powerade Zeros because I was outside from 5:30-8:15 pm with the cheerleading squads and it was HOT. I didn't want to get dehydrated.
