Loading days: I ate anything I wanted and drank a lot of wine. Probably not the best idea! Ice cream, pizza, grilled cheese, etc. I will hope that I am well loaded and don't experience a lot of hunger.

I noticed that it is hard for me not to eat or drink anything for 30 minutes (ie 15 min before and 15 min after taking pellets) 3 times per day. This is a good eye opener for me at how OFTEN I am eating.

Day one:
HCG
b: Coffee (5 c)
s: Green tea and apple (120c)
HCG
l: 3 oz tuna in water (100c), 1 melba toast (20c), 1 c. cucumber (20c)
s: Apple (120c)
d: 3 oz chicken breast (140c), 1 melba toast (20c), 2 cups lettuce (plain) (25c).
HCG

total: 570c

Hunger as of 10 am is a 7. Definitely noticeable and a bit uncomfortable. Going to eat my apple.

Ok SO I had really great intentions for this weekend but was out of town for a wedding and I ate off plan both dinners (way way off plan).

I calculate that this set me back 6lbs. (2 I gained, the 2 lbs I would have those in those 2 days and the 2 lbs I would have lost in these next 2 days if I didn't have to relose the gained weight).

Not a good choice!

I've also extended my p2 since I now have to do 21 days from yesterday to do the leptin reset properly.

But - what's done is done.

Back on plan today (with more hunger):

b: melba toast, black coffee
s: apple and one ff turkey link
l: 1/2 cucumber, one ff turkey link
s: strawberries
d: 3 oz chicken breast, salad.

I am going to go to the gym today too.
