R2P2 Day 22 Gain 0.8lbs

Wt: 168.8 LIW: 173 (old analog scale)
1.1ml HCG (183.3iu) IM 22nd Injection

Seeing as I am still debating whether I will continue through to 30 injections straight, I believe this batch has lost its potency. I upped my dose today just 0.1ml and I hope I calculated the iu's correctly. But do I really want to end this P2 at this weight? Anyway, yesterday I was bad. There was an apartment managers meeting in our conference room and they had a luncheon as well. After the meeting there was food left over. So I helped myself. I had some brisket, tostadas, a pickled jalapeno, and TWO sugar cookies. The brisket tasted incredibly sweet, sweeter than the cookies actually. I didn't have very much to say I stuffed myself but I did have some. When I got home, I made tilapia for dinner and that is all I had, along with my water. This morning, I could tell the brisket had done a number on my stomach. Let's just say I was late to work because of that.

I am still debating about continuing since tomorrow would be my 23rd injection. I could stop, do P3 for a couple of weeks and resume the protocol. That maybe what I will have to do since our station manager will be on vacation and I will have to assume his duties (very stressful). That is what I will have to do. I can probably get away with doing 3 weeks of P3, then begin again after the new year. That sounds like a plan to me. My birthday is at the end of January, so there will be another interruption. Actually, probably not, since I really don't celebrate in any way except open a bottle of champagne and drink the whole thing myself!! Anyway, that's something else for me to ponder.

  • Breakfast: 1 cup of black coffee w/chocolate raspberry stevia, 1cup w/chocolate raspberry stevia and 1/2 & 1/2
  • Lunch: Boca burger, grape tomatoes and small orange
  • Dinner: Tilapia, large sliced tomato (4 slices)

Ok sweetheart, what is up? Wanna talk about it? I am here for you ok? Let's figure it out.

Ok Mary, when I came here the first time I didn't see a post, just a title. That is why I asked what I did.

Look darlin', this isn't a contest of wills. Just stop and move on next year. No harm no foul.

This was a tough round for you. Get passed it and move on. It doesn't matter what weight is your LIW - if it's higher then you have that much more wiggle room come P3 ok?

Take a break. You need it. Get thru this stressful period.

I know how it feels to want a break. It's pretty amazing that you only gained 0.8 from the luncheon food. I've had meat before like that & it seemed that they infused it with some sweet marinade. Mine was delicious! lol. Anyway, this does seem like a good time for a break considering the stressful two week job you're about to take on. Thanks for sharing your thoughts as I've been thinking about a break too.

Hi Mary, Lots of breaking going on this month! I think I'm going to end my round next week if i can tough it out that long. So i hear ya! I think you took Biz's advice because you didn't whine, or anything, you just fessed up and moved on. I'm very impressed with that! Hope tomorrow is better for you and what ever you decide, we'll be there for you...
