    Nothing is as tragic as a person who refuses to change. This kind of behavior is almost suicidal. If you are living in the past, it is like you are not living at all.....For some people, change is nothing but an opportunity. For others, change is a penalty...it depends upon the lens you view life thru, your third eye so to speak. Put some windex on your 3rd eye! See clear

    This is what I hate, my sex drive is high but I don't want my partner. We're actually in the presence of our longest dry spell since the last time I gave birth 10 years ago.

    I'm glad you are liking your bod now, though!! I have a hope that I'll know that experience with myself one of these days soon. I'll for sure like it once I get that six pack Dr. K promises!
    If the six pack happens, that's great and if it doesn't that's great as well. I'm admittedly a very lazy person and I've been so inconsistent on workouts lately so meh. I'm hoping when I start the new job and I join the gym there, I'll be more consistent.

    Backed off the BAB a bit this am... and it isn't quite holding me til lunch... still going to hang on til lunch... don't know what I'm going to have...ohhh wait I do... BAS w/some salmon burger and avocado....

    I also will have my telecon appt w/my VA Doc... to talk tests... granted I 've already paid to have them run...but If I can talk her into them... that's a good thing... I'm also going to talk w/her about DrK's blog... Fingers crossed it goes better than w/Kaiser... BTW I'm so disappointed w/Kaiser I'm srsly considering going back to UHC for the flexibility of going to what ever docs I want to see... plus at least UHC covered some of my chiropractor apts... I' can't believe I'm saying that...

    Sorry I'm not following; maybe it's the woozy head, lol.

    ETA The woozy feeling comes while my sugars are still high, usually, and in this case, while they were around 99, and some still when it had dropped to 75. But I do have some hypoglycemia tendencies, I think - before I started bingeing in the spring, my fasting b.g. was 54 ... and I felt fine, strangely enough. It's been in the 80s and 90s ever since.

    You say you are "eating the SAME foods!" Does that mean you are eating your yogurt, cheese, and sour cream on HCG P2?

    I was able to have heavy cream in my coffee during P2, but adding any other fats had me gaining in P2. Which is another reason I prefer to just eat Paleo and follow Dr. K's prescription. My skin was getting so dry my ankles looked like I had sagging silk stockings hanging around them. Just HAVE to lose without all that sagging dry skin!!
    Thanks, Kaleein! Well, the first two days on HCG (as you know) are not VLCD, so that's why I was eating the same food. It is very strange that I hold not feel any satiety with any amount of food, but by the second day of adding HCG I can feel satiety with a normal meal - about an hour later. And I haven't been eating all those dairy foods every day, but probably one a day.

    I don't usually do dairy on HCG, though, so that makes me go hmmmm. However, I have added fats and eggs to the VLCD on P2 in the past with good results, because I needed to keep my gallbladder contracting. The key is starting with the additions in the first week. My calories are still low because I can't have the fructose/fructans allowed on protocol: grissini, apple, onion, asparagus - so the fats and additional protein from the eggs help keep me up to 500 calories (or more.)

    If I wasn't gaining, I would definitely stick with the Leptin Reset and not be running back to HCG. Guess I should have gone no dairy from the beginning to give it a fair shot. But now I feel somewhat desperate to lose this weight as I am going to see family next month, and my clothes don't fit. It's very discouraging to be eating healthy and gaining so quickly. I plan to continue protein in the morning, no snacking, and 3 meals a day during protocol, but obviously will not be able to do 50 gr of protein in the morning.

    If I could just find satiety once again, then I could do the Leptin Reset on P3. One would think that by eating a BAB, then the body would want less at the other meals - I think this was my missing piece. I had no hunger or cravings between meals (which was a nice change from where I started), but no satiety at or after any meal. However, if I still have no satiety when I go off the HCG at the end of this round, I plan to keep track of calories on the Leptin Reset during P3, so I don't just gain it back again.

    This thread is annoying me.

    Clearly I missed something by not getting in at the ground floor.

    But, there is no way I am going to read over 500 pages to get caught up.

    Cliff notes anyone?
