I've been reading these boards about hcg for years and there are those strict protocol drill sergeants who are on their upteenth round but will not vary from protocol. Makes no sense to me If you can be more comfortable and have peace of mind - why not at least try going to the dark side? I was one of them once and thought if I veered from protocol at all that I wouldn't stabilize and blow up like a puffer fish Well, truthfully if you don't follow any plan afterwards, we all gain it back - the roguers and the protocolers.
HAHA... yes yes I was one of the first dark siders... hence journal #1. I just have to do things my way, or I won't do them.. I've been that way since birth, ask my Mom.

Anyway!! I am never going to say never!!! I do have a bottle of HHCG left, and I know I will be deep in Ketosis by then, why not let it help me along.. we shall see!! I do know that I will know within a few days If it will work with me or not at this time.

My CARROT is dangled though, and that may give me a new perspective! .

Can't wait to see how things go for you and Pati too!

Good morning! Today is a DD - I swear!!!! I have been starting out the last 2 days as DDs and then eating at night Yesterday I did really well and ate delmonico and mushrooms for dinner. I should've been done for the night - BUT then while watching TV I started snacking- GRRRRR!!!! I will not weigh today and hopefully be able to make it through a good DD today. I need to get a good DD in because this weekend will most likely be UDs because of going away and then Mothers Day. I'm wondering if the lifting is making me hungrier???? I was serioulsy hungry last night but wanted SWEETS. Oh well, I feel BLECH and mad at myself

Hope everyone is having a better day

unfortunately weight lifting is notorious for increasing hunger! I feel your pain on the night eating though!!!! Good luck today Gracie, I know it is not easy to get rolling again, but once you get rolling you can do this!

Must be the weightlifting making me ravenous!!! What do I do? Keep up with the lifting or wait? I really want to see some improvement in my arms because they are flabby - mostly the tricep area (batwings) Blech - I'm hungry today but drinking some decaf with hazelnut sf syrup instead - WAHHHHH (me having a pity party for myself )

Not much to say on the subject but wanted to give you this Exercising can leave some hungry especially intense exercise but I really don't know what to do about the cravings because I haven't exercised with real intensity for awhile. I sure do hope someone can give you some advice on it Gracie.

Try to have a nice Thursday!

Thanks Maggie! It can be so disheartening when you are trying to do something good for yourself and it backfires I swear I am starving at night - and I want to eat everything Hoping my weigh-in tomorrow doesn't make me want to take the bridge

Okay, on a better note, I found out what we are doing tomorrow. We are heading downtown a really nice hotel (Sheraton) right on the water. We are having dinner, drinks, and maybe heading across the river to the casino Sounds like FUN!!!! The only reason I found out is because the room cost came out of the bank account Saturday is still a surprise - not sure where we are going. I think he changed the initial plans after we talked about it. There's this posh spa/resort place that is like $800/night and I kind of told hiim that was insane. There's really nothing to do there - fishing, golfing, skeet shooting but there is a spa. Seems like a big waste of money for ME. I'm more of a local bar, Miller Lite, and a poker machine kind of girl

I'm trying not to get discouraged about it! I do love to lift but I am still sore today from Tuesday. Maybe I overdid it? I usually use 5 lb. weights but this time used 10 lb. ones.

I'm excited for the weekend! I'm up for anything

Thanks Maggie! I will keep up the lifting. I haven't done it since Tuesday and my freakin arms are still sore I think I overdid it - next time I'm going to use two 5 lb. dumbbells instead of the 10 lb. ones.

Okay, yesterday was a pretty good DD. I ate some strawberries for lunch and dinner was teriyaki chicken on the grill and some rice. I'm guessing my calories were 500-600. I wanted to EAT, EAT, EAT last night but I chewed some gum instead. The scale was at 189 lbs. this morning. Bernice just showed up though so maybe I'm lower I guess that's good considering I'm struggling with my DDs turning into Binge at Night Days Now the weekend scares me - Friday and Saturday will be away, Sunday is Mother's Day, and Monday is my 40th Birthday That's FOUR days in a row Oh well, it's only once in my life and I'm not complaining!!! I should be ecstatic and grateful that I get to do all these great things

Everyone have a fantastic Friday and weekend!

Funny how sleep is so important now but when we were younger and pre-kids it was all about hanging out. I'm like Pati, living vicariously through you. No adult weekend? You definitely deserve time away. It does touch the heart that Erin wants to come...
