Bleh. I have to wait until after my birthday

The timing simply won't work out any other way. It's very disappointing as I had mentally geared up to do this. That and I'm on the high side of my LDW and have had to do far too many steak days as of late. I'm sure the stress I'm under is partly to blame. I am proud of myself for not letting it get out of hand and correcting it when it goes over but I fear my cholesterol levels!! :)

So, I'll load on my birthday, January 28. In the meantime, I will do steak days as needed. It could be a lot worse.

I'm at 125.1 today. I was at 126.1 yesterday and did a steak day to correct. I'd really hoped it would have been more of a loss as I am allowed to get to 125.4. The chances of me having to do a steak day tomorrow are too high for my taste. Oh well. I think things will be much easier once the kids are back in school full time. I plan on starting the Wii Fit Active 30 day challenge. I'd really like to lose 5 pounds in between now and the start of my next round so the load weight won't be so painful. That's about a pound a month. I can do that, can't I? If I just add regular exercise?

Hope you're all well!

Hey, helderheid--

I know how frustrated you must be at how your schedule has panned out. I am frustrated with my schedule too! I thought I would be able to start the protocol after my birthday in August. However, now my work has announced an out-of-town trip in September, that will involve eating out all meals for a few days. Being on VLCD at that time would be a nightmare.

After I get past that, we have Thanksgiving and Christmas staring back at me. We will have out-of-town guests for both, with lots of eating out at restaurants, and big family meals at home. Again, it would be almost impossible to explain my new way of eating to ALL those 'inquiring minds' with such 'thoughtful' input!!

It just doesn't seem that there is a good time to start my first round until after Christmas, when everyone goes home and I can start being focused. I have all my hcg stuff ready to go, and had gotten mentally prepared, but it just doesn't look like I can start until much later, like you. So, we can still be hcg buddies in 2010!! --lavenderdiva

I hate to tell you this... but it looks like my trip in Nov was cancelled so I will start on my anniversary after all! It means being in P3 during Thanks Giving, but that's alright with me. The only thing I like on that day is the turkey which is P3 friendly!

Any chance you could start in October??
