I was delighted and surprised that despite the very salty camp foody foods, I stayed between 123-124 the entire time! NO steak days! I even had a beer yesterday and a little Baileys! 123.8 this morning which is only .4 above my last dose weight. LOVE this protocol. I feel healed.
The steak day dropped me to 123.1. The next couple days I tried some things I'd not tried in years... like a candy bar. Craving so for sure hormonal. Back up to 125.9. I did a steak day yesterday, though modified. I didn't want to skip my coffee with cream so I didn't sacrifice that and I also started eating my steak (split up) at 1:30 rather than waiting until dinner. Lost over 3 pounds and am 122.6! Seems to me it really is about carbs on these steak days.
I stabilized a couple pounds lower than I was "supposed" to last round and I never "had" to do steak days (though I did a couple times because I wanted to stay in the 130s). I didn't have that experience this round so I really hate having to do steak days, though I am thrilled that they work so well. Anyway, I am more anxious than ever to start my final round as I know I will get to exactly where I want to be and even if I need a steak day, I won't be anywhere near my high healthy BMI but right in the middle. That is so comforting.
This next round I may use lifecaps. Others found that their weight dropped faster and more dramatically using them. My last round was such a roller coaster, I would love the extra help. I didn't want to use them until I'd heard from others who have stabilized after using them in P2 and I've talked to 2 people so far who have stabilized. It apparently totally wipes out hunger as well (though that wasn't such an issue last round).
Anyway, feeling great today! I'm going to stick to low carb the next week and a half as we are camping over Memorial Day weekend and I want to be as low as I can before that. YES, I am taking my scale and steaks with me!! :)
I've been in classes and restricted to meals provided by the classes. I was 124.2 this morning - up from 122.9 yesterday. It's a full moon so most likely my sans-uterus TOM - I've been parking funny :)
I fear it may be a steak day tomorrow. Think miraculous "wow she could eat that and not have to do a steak day" thoughts. I need 'em and happen to believe in miracles. :)
