R5 Day 3 P3 114.8 (+1, +.8 of LDW )

Woaaaah nelly! 3 words: wine and cheese.

I went to a friend's house last night and our kids went trick or treating and we had a BBQ. I ate A LOT of cheese. I had cheese dip ON cheese. Cheese, cheese, cheese.

Today is attack the house day. I have laundry coming out the wazoo, as well as ironing, vacuuming, scrubbing, etc., etc. I am putting off bills for tomorrow. I need a shiny house.

I'm off to check on you all! Happy Halloween!

R5 Day 2 P3 113.8 (-.4 - - .2 of LDW )

Good morning peeps!

I don't get it. Not sure why the gain yesterday and not sure why the loss today. I shall not question it!

Short update as today is going to be nutty. Kids have dental appointments in a couple hours, and then it's an afternoon/evening of Halloween events (in Utah no one does anything on Sunday but church - well, and Costco. That's where all the Gentiles go on Sunday :P ).

I'm thinking scrambled eggs are in my future, but first more coffee with cream!

Thinking releasing, stabilizing, maintaining thoughts for all y'all in your various phases!

R5 Day 1 P3 114.2 (+1 - +.2 of LDW )

LOL, most appropriate for my last day of this WTF round!


I've no idea what caused the bump up but I'm awfully close to my LDW so I shall not panic so long as I don't keep going that direction.

The kids are out of school today, however it's just their school district so we've made a deal that if we can totally clean and organize the upstairs, we can go out to the other side of the valley and catch a movie where the school district there has their kids in school. I HATE crowds, so this works very well for me. Clean upstairs and a quiet theater. I love that I don't need to worry about the butter on the popcorn touching my skin! It's the little things... :)

So, I'll be in P4 on Nov. 19th. Yippee!

Off to drink my coffee, take my supplements (including my fish oil!), and to check on you. :)

R5 Hour 48 of 72 hour transition - 113.2 (-1.4 - -.8 of LDW)

1.4 loss??? Gads! I'm thrilled I am under my last dose weight. More room for the Dutch goodies. I just remembered this morning about kwark. Oh. MY GOD. You have not know deliciousness until you've experienced Dutch kwark.  I plan on experiencing it quite a bit. I used to get the vanilla flavor, but it does come in plain so I may get that and sweeten it with vanilla stevia. :)

So I was 113 for years and years, though I was generally in my late teens and early 20s. I am kind of hoping my body goes, "Oh HEY! I remember THIS!" and sticks to it. I'm taking my glandular support and have been for about a week and a half, so hopefully that helps as well.

My kids have no school tomorrow (I've NO clue why) which means they're out early today which means if I want to accomplish anything, I need to get to it. I'm not sure if I do want to. :P

It's cold enough for us to use our pellet stove and we did last night. It's one of the few joys of winter for me. I love how cozy it makes me feel!

Okay, here's Fancy's findings - the weight and body age (I'll be 36 in January) have me dancing for joy, though the body fat % went UP (still normal, but not by much - I must start exercising!!):

Off to check on all y'all my dears! XOXOXO

R5 Hour 24 of 72 hour transition - 114.6 (+.6 of LDW)

Yeah, I didn't dose...

I'm not shocked at the blip - I just had a feeling. I didn't get enough water in.

And THIS is what we woke up to. Eeegads, first snow of the season was a pounding!

I'm not motivated to do anything at this point. I think it's the weather. UGH, I hate snow. It's pretty, but it's cold and shoveling is NOT my thing, nor is driving in this mess!

I'm off to check on all y'all!

R5 Day 23 (VLCD 22) 114 -.8 - Cream can wait until Friday!

I done dosed, y'all.

My HCG has been mixed now for 8 days, so I'm not very confident in it's potency, but I'm hanging on to it rather than remixing. I doubt I'll dose tomorrow regardless of whether or not I lose, but who knows.

Why does this happen at the end of each round? AND, why the drop today? I had 1100 calories, some including vodka! 

9 pounds this round. I'm beyond thrilled.

Off to drink coffee and catch up with all y'all... some of you aren't updating, damnit! I need my bloggy fix!!!

R5 Day 22 (VLCD 21) 114.8 -.2 and stats

Hi all!

I've decided not to mix a new batch of HCG. I still have some left from my current batch, and I did dose this morning, however I won't dose tonight. This way I get cream in my coffee Thursday, unless I drop significantly tomorrow, in which case I'll dose with my current mix and call THAT my last dose day. So, we'll see! Either way, I am beyond thrilled with where I ended up. I tend to drop a little in the initial P3 days as well, so I am within 3 pounds of where the stats say I'm healthiest, and may get there yet.

Here's the latest from Fancy:

R5 Day 21 (day 20 VLCD) 115! -.8


115? YAY! 

I'm now 38 according to Fancy and no longer 41. Only 3 years older than my actual age :P

So I posted last night a rant that I later deleted. It was about my brother. One thing I love about this protocol is that deep emotional "stuff" always comes up. The trick is moving through it and not stuffing it back down. So, I ranted about my brother last night. This morning I realized it was important for me to do so, but that the rant itself really didn't belong on a public blog so away it went.

I've been trying to figure out if I should go as long as I can (until Thursday) on the protocol or end as soon as I can (Monday). I mix my HCG one week at a go and Monday happens to be the day I'd need to remix. It seems a waste to mix and only go until Thursday. We'll see how I feel Monday, but as of today I am really thinking I'll save the HCG for next round in January and have cream in my coffee on Thursday. :)

I really need to thank you guys. You've gotten me through so much. I really don't know what I'd do without you and your support. This round has been particularly challenging. You are invaluable to me! I am serious about us all getting together in person at some point... some point when we're all in P4! ;P

R5 Day 19 116.8 (- .6, +.1 LDW) - it's FANCY DANCY DAY!


.1 from LDW and given I've not had any PA today, I can safely say I am at my last dose weight! Yea, yeah, YEA!

4 pounds down in the last 2 weeks - hey, it's the right direction and I'm at my LDW!

Nice BMI! Smack dab in the middle of NORMAL!

HOLLAH! in 11 days I went from overweight body fat % of 35.3 down to NORMAL (below 33%) to 31.3%!

Skeletal muscle is up!

Resting metabolism is DOWN! There's less of me to support! WOOT!

Okay, I'm still 4 years older than my actual age, but down 2 years from 11 days ago!

Visceral fat  (the fat you can't pinch) has remained 5 throughout - normal is 1-9.

I'm thrilled. :)

All this, and I think something is going on hormonally. I mentioned I thought I was ovulating a couple days ago. Yesterday and today my breasts have been aching which normally happens when I'm having my actual period, so it's one of the two. I'm parking funny so it may be more likely my period. I tend to park askew that time of the month. :) Weird, I know!

I'm off to attack the day, but not before I check in with all y'all!


EDITED TO ADD: Another blog to follow! Welcome to HCG! Changing my life with HCG

R5 Day 18 117.4 (- .4, +.7 LDW)

Another 800 calorie day yesterday and I still dropped! Woooooot!

Today I am experimenting (why not??) and doing a chicken day. Nothing but chicken. I just had a whole breast for lunch! I think I'll do 100 grams as a snack and then another whole breast for dinner. I have lean steak in the fridge to do a random steak day, and I have my apples for a random apple day. I have 7 days (or 4 depending on my mood) to go, so I may as well play a little. I'm already within 1 pound of my LDW so let the games begin!

R5 Day 17 117.8 (- 1.0, +1.1 LDW)

"We are made to persist. That's how we find out who we are."– Tobias Wolff

I ended up snacking up to 800 calories last night and late into the evening! - 1?? Going with the flow. 8 more days. I think I may actually end up at my LDW from last round, however I was serious last night when I said I really am done. What releases, releases. Detoxing now. I actually can stop earlier than 8 days if I want to, which is Monday. So depending on where I'm at and how I feel, I COULD stop in 5 days. We'll see, we'll see!

I'll keep this short and sweet like me! :P

I'm ovulating!

There's the blip.

Why is it when you gain or don't lose you're hungry?

I'm not REALLY hungry, but cravey. I ate extra fruit, veggies, and grissini. I am up to 600 calories.

I know I said I'd given up losing anymore before, but I REALLY have given it up. I was reluctant before, but at this point I really feel like saying screw it. Not in an angry way, but in a resigned way.

So the plan is not to exceed the 500 for the next 9 days, unless I do an apple day (which I'll do) or a modified steak day (which I may as well do too). There you have it. That also mixes things up in the next 1+ week. Ha.

What a weird round. I'm glad I did it though, regardless of the fact that today I am 1.1 pounds lighter than I was the day before I loaded, 2 weeks ago. I'm glad to know I can do a detox round without losing and still reap the benefits of having my body fat % go down and my organs breathe a sigh of relief with a cleanse.

I'll take it.


R5 Day 16 118.8 (+.8, +2.1 LDW)

What a weird round this has been for so many of us. I can't explain this blip. I'd considered doing an apple day, but I'm going to give it one more day and see if things even out. I weighed prior to any "movement" if you know what I mean, and it was a significant one once it happened. Sorry, TMI.

Okay, so I want to introduce you all to 2 new blogs I'm now following of 2 people totally new to the protocol! Please check out My Hcg Journey and A Boston Gals HCG Voyage...making eye contact with my Goals . 

I've been working on real estate and property management stuff this morning, and need to switch hats and attack the laundry. Today the kids are back in school after 5 days!!!!! I must admit, this is a much needed break! :)


9 more days!

Monday, October 18, 2010

R5 Day 15 118 ( -.6, +1.3 LDW)

10 more days!

I weighed on Fancy but I failed to bring my phone, so no pictures. The BIG news is that my body fat % is now 32.9%! That's .1% under the limit to be considered normal! Woot! With 10 more days to go, I'm sure I'll see that shift further, and I may even reach my LDW from my last round.

I have my kids home one more day (some teacher thing has kept them home), but I'd determined even with them here that I will get some serious sorting done, mainly my husband's side of the closet. I'm pulling out everything I've not seen him wear in a year and evaluating whether or not to donate it. That and ANYTHING with a hole or stain goes. After that, I need to make sure I've ironed his shirts so that he does in fact have something to wear to work.

I'm getting really excited!

Last night a migraine began to creep up on me so I'm off for some advil and coffee.

I hope you're all well! I see some updates so I'm off to check them out. :)

R5 Day 14 118.6 ( -.0, +1.9 LDW)


Oh, heavens. I really had no intention of doing so, but last night we had friends over for a BBQ since the weather was SO nice. I was so compliant. Totally good, until... I somehow thought that vodka wasn't a bad idea. Hell, it's an astringent, right? Right! So I had sparkly water with flavored stevia and vodka. 3 of them. That and 3 extra grissini bread sticks to make sure something was in my tummy with the vodka. We sat around the fire and had a wonderful evening. My head is paying for it this morning, but all in all it was worth it. I will be absolutely strict with the protocol from here on out. 11 more days.

Speaking of 11, today is my 11th anniversary.

This was taken after my bachelorette party. :)

Off to check on you guys!

R5 Day 13 118.6 ( -.6, +1.9 LDW)

Losses 2 days in a row? (shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, we don't want to scare the body!)

I weighed in on Fancy again so my husband could sleep in. All the other numbers are pretty much the same.

It was a welcome surprise! I'm barely back in range of LDW, but back in range nonetheless! *happy dance*

So, with the load weight, I'm averaging .35 a day now. Of course, we're not looking at that right?? Strictly a detox... all else is icing...

I'm more than half way through this round. 12 doses to go! I'll have a glass of wine (or two) on Halloween (of course this being Utah, all the festivities will have happened the night before).

It's going to be 78 today!! October 16 in Utah! Our leaves on our trees haven't turned yet! SO WEIRD.

R5 Day 12 119.2 ( -.6, +2.5 LDW) Check in with Fancy

Hi all,

Again, thanks for holding my hands and all the supportive comments during my WTF round. As I stated in my last post, doing this as a detox/cleanse was one of my main reasons for going through another round, so that's my main focus now given how stubborn the weight is being. 13 more days and we'll see what happens. I'd be really surprised if I didn't at least get back to my LDW from R4, but if not, as Nick and Meg said, damn, I look good.

So, Fancy weighed me today and here are the results. The body fat percentage drop had me very happy.

 Anything above 33% is considered above normal - went from 35.3 to 33.6! Phew!

The body fat percentage drop has made ALL of this worth it. Just think - 13 more days - I may be able to drop into the normal range!

Today I'm going to spiff the house and pay bills. Joy! :) It will feel good to have that accomplished. It's a beautiful day - I'm going to make sure the kids and I have a chance to enjoy it!

LOVE YOU! Off to check on you.

Thursday, October 14, 2010


First and foremost, thank you all SO much for your support right now. Obviously, this is a very difficult time for me with this round.

That said, I have had to shift my perspective.

As I said before, part of this is a detox round. In that capacity, I'm golden. I need to view this round as that and that alone. What I release during the next 2 weeks will be icing on the cake, but I'm letting go of any expectations as far as weight released. Here's hoping I don't gain anymore! Regardless, I will concentrate on this as a cleanse (and a much needed one).

My tummy is STILL distended, so I have to say I really cannot expect a major loss. If it happens, it will be a glorious surprise, but I won't count on it.

In frustration, I had 2 lemons today and an extra grissini. I wasn't hungry, but as I said, frustrated. I'm not thrilled I did that out of dealing with a negative emotion, but at least my cheat was with P2 food, and I know I can go up to 1000 calories with that menu for reshaping. Not a big deal. Calories only went to 540 with the extras. Back to 500 tomorrow, and no extras.

Again, thanks all of you. 2 more weeks. It's really nothing. Who knows what will happen, but for certain my body will have had a nice cleanse.


R5 Day 11 119.8 ( +.5, +3.1 LDW)

I tend to name my rounds. I've had one I called the roller coaster round that was so frustrating. What I wouldn't do to have that round back. This is my What The Fuck round.

Pre-load weight: 119.9
Net loss after 10 days of VLCD: .1

How is that even physically possible?

14 more days.

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

R5 Day 10 119.3 ( -0, +2.6 LDW)

Believe it or not, I consider this a win. I didn't gain after my apple day, and a familiar pattern for me is a substantial loss and then nothing and then another loss. I fully expect a loss tomorrow.  If not, then I may have reason to be a little concerned but really, what's my choice here? I can't stop now. I need to simply follow the protocol and end up where I end up. I still hold out hope that I'll end up where I want to end up. If nothing else, surely I'll at least get back to my LDW in the next 15 days. I hope for closer to 7-8 more pounds released in this time. We shall see! In any case, as I said, I was really, really happy to see that I'd not gained and that the apple day did, in fact, kick things back into gear.

More than anything at this point, I want to fit in my jeans again. I have probably half a dozen sizes 2-4 and can only fit in a couple pair now. Seems to me that my weight strategically hit my hips and thighs. If I can get back into those, I'll be happy.

 Sunday is my and my husband's 11th wedding anniversary. I had a particular print I wanted to buy him that I can no longer find.

I've just googled De Boom and can't find it! Hmmm...

Okay, more coffee. It's a short day for the kids and then they're off until Monday. We'll work on their rooms and making sure they have what they need. That and I got a more than full price offer on my listing! YES! I'll put that together too. It will close before we leave. Thank goodness!

Love you all. I really appreciate you!

R5 Day 8 120.6 ( -.1, +3.9 LDW)


Apple day.

I've been at VLCD for 7 days now. 5 of the 7 days I've gained or stalled. This is no way to start a round, my dears. Talk about zapping all motivation.

The good news is that I am partially treating this as a detox/pattern interrupt and in that respect, this has thus far been successful.

If you're not aware of the Daily Om, you may want to be. For instance, today's Daily Om is titled: Setting a Limit to Sit with Emotions How Long

I recently saw one that spoke to my condition about change, and it took me back to when I'd met my husband for the first time, and when I knew I wanted him long term in my life.

The entry is called: Ready for Change Declaring Our Intentions

If you want to produce change in your life, take the time to declare it to the universe in whatever way feels right.

You can read the entire article here

One of the things the article suggested is writing our very clear wishes and intentions down and putting them under our pillows. As I said, this took me back. When I met my husband, I did a collage, very much like the one I have as a background here on my blog, of him in the center, surrounded by symbols of commitment (wedding rings, etc., etc) and I put that precisely under my bed where I slept. Remembering this, I took the current collage I have and did the same. I do have some things I need to write and add to it. In any case, it was a welcome reminder of how well I've manifested my life and continue to do so, though I need to be more precise in my focus as to what I want.

Today the cat/house sitter comes to interview us so I need to work on the downstairs, particularly the cat room in anticipation. That and exercise! I have several episodes of a Dutch reality show to catch up on and my lap top to stream it so I'll just take my computer from room to room as I attack.

Thanks for letting me vent. I hope the protocol  is treating you more kindly than it's treating me!

R5 Day 7 120.7 (+.1, +4 LDW)

Day 4 of either a gain or minuscule change. I have enough apples to do an apple day. I think I may hold off on that for 1 more day. If I don't see a significant drop tomorrow, for my own sanity (which is beginning to shake), I'll do an apple day.

My tummy is still distended. Is it possible this is the first round I've started while during my cycle? This is the only explanation I can come up with for the distended tummy. The weight I could very well see given how close to my goal I am, but the distended tummy is something else for certain.

I had my grissini yesterday for the first time. They didn't have plain, so I opted for the garlic flavor and I must say it was a treat. I took mustard, mixed a little tobasco and a drop of plain stevia and made sweet hot mustard dip for it. Yummmmm.

Le sigh. I know I should know better (and I do) but I can't hide my disappointment. I just want to go back to bed. Today is cleaning day though and I vowed to exercise every day. Maybe I'll just go back to bed for a little while.

Off to check on you guys (though most of you seem too busy with the weekends to update).

R5 Day 6 120.6 ( -.2, +3.9 LDW)

Gads, this is frustrating so early on! This is almost an official stall and I'm only in week 1! 2 days of losses and 2 days of nothing and 1 day of gain. Bleah!

I did exercise for the first time in aaaaaages, and I am up to 3 zits and continued bloat. I can't worry about this. I'm going to continue to exercise as all my numbers are normal except for body fat/muscle percentage. That's where I need to focus, so I will continue VLCD with HCG and although I really want to shed some weight, I want to concentrate more on toning my bod. Hey, I have just under 6 weeks to do it and I know between the HCG/VLCD and the pilates/yoga, I will see amazing results.

I didn't do measurements this round, but I have them from the last time. This time I'm going to focus more on what my new fancy pants scale has to say about my numbers. I'll measure at the end and see how it differs from last time. Speaking of fancy pants, that one I will weigh in on weekly rather than daily. I imagine those numbers will be more dramatic that way. Our clients only come in once a week to weigh in on it so I'll leave the daily weigh ins to my bathroom scale which we know is in sync with fancy pants weight wise.

Gads, I've babbled. Here's some entertainment for you - this is AMAZING!

Love all y'all!


I was unable to do pilates 2 days in a row - my muscles need a break! I did manage yoga though. I'll do pilates every other day until my muscles are stronger. :)

Friday, October 8, 2010

R5 Day 5 120.8 ( +.8, +4.1 LDW)

Up almost a pound. I feel totally bloated and have a zit on my chin and I'm craving salt, so I'm fairly confident in saying this has to be hormonal. I'm surprisingly calm!

So this morning I compared my weight on my bathroom scale (120.8) with my new fancy pants scale (120.8)! I was so happy to see they were both right on. I got the rest of my stats as well.  I was none too pleased with my body age, however my PA calls that part of this scale "hokey", though it should go down as I continue on the protocol. Worse than that was my body fat % which is out of the normal range. Here are the stats:


BMI (normal is 18.5-24.9 - I'd like this number to be closer to 20-22)

Normal for my age is 21%-33%! EEK!

Skeletal muscle is in proportion to the body fat %

Resting metabolism

Real age is 35

Visceral fat (the fat you can't pinch) - Normal is 1-9 - Woot!

Obviously I have some work to do. Yes my BMI is normal, but I am high on the body fat %. I'm sure this is due to a lack of exercise for the last 2 years! Time to start the pilates now that I have a clean bill of health with the foot. In fact, part of me gets the idea that pilates may help with the circulation and perhaps help my foot.

So all in all I am really glad I got this scale. It forces me to look at an overall health picture rather than just my weight on the scale. That said, I'm starting (slowly) pilates today! I may follow that with a very calming yoga. By the time we leave on our trip, I should be tone and calm! :) OH, and I can take my pilates with me and play it on my laptop while away! Woohoo!

Speaking of the trip, I arranged a house sitter which has me feeling so much more calm about the trip. My fur babies will be well taken care of, as will my plants, and knowing that my home is being watched gives me so much more peace of mind. I always worry when we're away. Not this time. :)

OK, my lovies! Drinking more coffee, and then off to pilates and yoga - the rest of the day shall be faaaaaabulous! :) 

Love y'all and I'm off to check on ya!

R5 Day 4 120 ( +.1, +3.3 LDW)

Meh! Day 3 and essentially the same as yesterday. I had tomatoes for the first time during P2 and this morning I could hear the chatter in my head wondering if that could have caused the lack of loss and then I could hear the clients I've counseled asking similar questions... and then I heard what I've told them, which is that this is normal. Granted day 3 is a little early, however I have very little to release. I'm practically within my range, and 5-10 pounds from where I'd like to end up with 17-21 days to go.

I suspected I wouldn't have a loss given how heavy my tummy was feeling. Not sure what that's about. Anyway, I'm not concerned.

I just got my NEW fancy dancy scale! It's the one we use at work. It not only weighs you, but it also calculates the following:

Omron HBF-514C

Body fat%
Body mass index (BMI)
Skeletal muscle%
Visceral fat level
Body age
Resting metabolism
Body weight

I've watched clients get really excited even if losses are slow because they are able to watch their body composition totally shift.

I didn't have time to try mine this morning before coffee so I'm waiting until tomorrow. I'll be very curious how it differs from the scale in my bedroom.  Here are some other images:

Off to check on you guys!

R5 Day 3 119.9 ( -1.9, +3.2 LDW)

That was a pleasant surprise! By surprise I mean I couldn't have gotten more than 3-4 hours sleep last night and I know how that can affect releases. It's so nice to see all the load weight is GONE, only 2 VLCDs into this round. I have 18-22 days left (18 more days minimum to get 21 effective doses or up to 22 to get me to P4 on time). Certainly I can get to my LDW and maybe even to 112-114 (112 is considered "ideal" for my age, sex, and height).

I suspect I know what may have caused the insomnia. I took my 2nd thyroid pill at 7 pm and have heard it can cause sleep problems.

Today I hope I can just make it through the day. I am running on empty (the little sleep was plagued by nightmares) and I have a real estate class to take.

I can't wait to see how all of you did!

Thanks again for being here for me! Means the world to me!

R5 Day 2 121.8 ( -1.1, +5.1 LDW)

Good morning, peeps!

I have to admit, I was a little hesitant getting on the scale. I had a round where my first day I only released half a pound. I was so disappointed. Of course the following day I had a huge drop. Anyway, it was a relief to see more than a pound release on my first day. Only 5 more to go to get to LDW from last round. We'll see how far my body wants to go this time.

I am so glad I checked my checking account this morning. Just over $100! My husband failed to tell me he was paying a bill for close to $1000 this week. GAH!! So, I've written myself a check from my commissions which I avoid doing since it's pre-taxed money. Oh well. Thank God I can do this. My husband gets paid Friday so this should hold us. Gads, though talk about an adrenaline rush looking at that number!

I have so much organizing to do. Fortunately I feel so much better today than yesterday, so I think I may be able to make a decent dent (as soon as I run to the bank and cover our asses).

Off to check on you guys!

R5 Day 1 post load weight 122.9 (3.2 pounds up in one day! GADS!)


I feel like throwing up. I am so glad today is VLCD as I seriously don't think I could do a 2nd load day.

I have bills to pay and a house to clean, but I think I'm going to lay down for just a second... I felt some nasty bug creeping up on me yesterday but I managed to get rid of the sore throat with emergen-c, zinc, and extra vitamin d3. I can't take the emergen-c today, but will continue with the zinc and d3. Hopefully I can stave off anything major.

Off to check with you!

119.7 ( +3 LDW)


According to my calculations, I've eaten close to 300 grams of fat and close to 4400 calories. E-FUCKING-GADS. That's insane! I feel like utter crap, but hey! We knew that would happen.

Unfortunately this wasn't as anti-carby as I'd hoped. I had cheesecake and onion rings.  I am a little worried about the scale tomorrow.

My daughter had a grand day for her birthday. I'm glad I could play along. :)

How did all y'all do? I need to check in.

Tomorrow is DAY 1 of VLCD! Woot! Go us!

119.5 (2.8 above LDW) Slight change in plans...


Lis, I am following your lead. This is such a short round and I have very little to release, so tomorrow will be my one and only load day. I have plenty of wonderful fat foods to load up on. We will be travelling tomorrow to visit a set of grandparents and celebrate my daughter's birthday, so I need to make sure to bring cheese to snack on while on the road. I'll bring nuts and avocados too.

Tonight we have a wine tasting to attend. We're bringing smoked salmon as our appetizer. I need to remind myself not to flip if I gain a little as it is very salty. Then again, I'm not planning on eating the whole thing! :) I am very much looking forward to be able to go out and be social with my husband.

So, I still haven't done anything about getting the house ready, but I figure this round is about total transformation not only for me, but I hope to tackle some of those home projects. So much to do, but I'm feeling extremely confident it can be done.

XOXOXOX! Tomorrow is the day!

119.7 ( +3 LDW)


Okay, 1 more day before I begin the next round. I'm really sticking as best I can to low carb, even during the loading. I bought avocados, cheese, clam chowder, cheddar soup, steaks, heavy whipping cream, etc., etc.
The fact is, I have never been someone into sugar as it makes me feel instantly ill so I'm really going to avoid the sweet stuff this time. I think that will help with the load weight as well. Last round I gained so much loading I was so physically uncomfortable. I ended up back in the 130s! I really want to avoid only losing load weight if you know what I mean!

Today will be nuts. I need to go shopping with a friend who is throwing a party tonight (Costco - I'll pick up P2 foods while there so I'm totally prepared for Monday), and then I need to go to my daughter's class as she is V.I.P. this week, and I need to tell the class how fantastic and unique she is (that's easy!).

The day is slipping away. Much love and and positive vibes to all y'all!
