R3P2D59 Prepare Yourself To Be Grossed Out

Round 3 Phase 2 Day 59
1ml HCG (166.6 iu) Injection #22
R3 LIW: 162.0 03.19.08
Yesterday's Wt: 163.0
Today's Wt: 161.6
1.4 lbs LOST from yesterday
0.4 lbs under LIW

All I can say is WOW!! I have had such a struggle with this round and now that I'm nearing the end, I start dropping again which brings up the issue of "should I mix another batch?" Nah, I'll probably take a break for a week or two and just jump right back in again. I noticed that when I take too long of breaks, I can not get myself under control again. Plus summer is right around the corner!!! Yes, I know I have been branded the poster child of what NOT to do while on this protocol. That's fine by me. I think someone, me, should be testing the limits since the original protocol was so limited on information and many of us are pretty much winging it. Many with great results I might add. I was checking my calendar and even thought my LIW from Round 2 was 168.0, I started this round at 178.?? Round 2 almost is non existent. So that means that so far this round, starting in January, I have lost 17 lbs. Pretty sad but that's just me, the Deviator!!

WARNING: This part is TMI!!
Another reason I may have a had such a good drop is because I felt consty all week. Thursday I felt myself battling to go poo. I felt that I had to go but there was no cooperation. I finally squeezed out a few pebbles and that was it. Well, yesterday, my body decided to stop combating and released and released. My first trip, of course, as I'm sitting there trying to get it all out, the phone rings and all I can think is, if its important, they'll leave a message!! After I was done, I checked and it was my mom, she didn't leave a message. Later, my daughter and I were watching the Bucket List, and Jack Nicholson says, when you get older, never trust a fart!!! The funny thing is, right after he said that, I told my daughter, I needed to heed his advice and went to the bathroom, and went again. I had been feeling my gut churning as we watched the movie but all it took was for him to say that and I was gone. Now, the last couple of days, I have been enjoying some light yogurt along with some milled flaxseed and I think that is what helped me tremendously as well as some of the magnesium tablets I took both days.

All in all, I am starting to feel great. I watched Paul McKenna's videos yesterday from his website, and some of his techniques really helped me last night. I wasn't planning on staying up late but my daughter insisted that we watch movies. I started doing the tapping technique and my daughter asked rudely, "What are you doing?!!" I looked at her and just said, the tapping technique. She gave me a look and sarcastically said, "What is THAT?!!" I explained to her that it was something to help stop cravings. She just yelled at me, "Just eat already!!" All this while she's shoveling Girl Scout cookies in HER mouth. I explained to her that I wasn't hungry, I just wanted to eat to do something and the tapping helps to stop that. I also explained to her the other video about when you think you want something so bad, think about something you hate to eat and that you have to eat it. Now as your eating this nasty item, sprinkle some hair on it. It makes it more gross when you think about sprinkling pubic hair on it. Then after you sprinkle all this hair on it, empty the contents of a full spittoon on it and you have to eat it!! Then the plate seems to be getting bigger and more hair and snot are being placed on it. If that doesn't kill your craving or your thoughts about the food you want to eat, then start tapping again until the desire is gone. Let me tell you, that really did it for me, especially when I switched to pubic hairs, ewww!! So anyway, she got tired and it was a bit after midnight and we both went to bed. I got up at 7am and weighed. I really thought I would be the same from yesterday but no, there was a good loss. I went to Wal*Mart to buy the newspaper and get some fresh garlic that was on sale. At first the cashier started to argue with me because I had taken a competitor's ad and she began to explain that they no longer honored the 5 for a dollar, etc., only by the pound items. I thought okay, I won't take them then. She asked if it was on sale somewhere else and I told her I wasn't sure. She found another store that had them for 79 cents a pound. I said okay, let's see what it comes out to. It turned out it was actually cheaper by the pound than the 5 for a dollar. I think I ended up paying 59 cents for the 5 heads. Works for me and she calmed down. I came home and realized I need to water my palm trees and lantanas in the front. I watered my rose bushes yesterday, they're in the backyard. My lantanas in the back don't seem to be coming up so I wonder if the winter did them in. I need to plant my garlic as well so I don't have to fight at the store anymore. I thought about taking a walk this morning but procrastinated and now its late and I've lost the motivation.

Happy Sunday to all, it sure was lonely here yesterday. Was there some HCG convention that I wasn't aware of nor invited to?

Yesterday's Menu:
B: 2-16oz. coffee w/milk and Splenda
L: eggbeaters (1 c.?) with mushrooms cooked in coconut oil
S: 6oz. NSA peach yogurt w/1 tbls. of milled flaxseed (my daughter didn't like this yogurt so I ate it)
D: 1 chicken breast w/slice of Mont Jack cheese, cooked in coconut oil
S: a few bites of ground beef and green beans (daughter's dinner)

I did eat a couple of tostadas because I made some homemade salsa and need to check its flavor. Excuses, excuses right? At least I didn't eat the whole bag, right?

CB, thanks for checking in on me. Glad you enjoyed my post, I sure had a lot to say, didn't I? I enjoy reading your progress and I must say, you are doing awesome!! Luv ya and take care!!

Girl you've made me laugh.. I also suffer with that restroom issue but I am trying to drink a lot of water when I wake up and do some sit ups. It works because your mucles move around that area and it helps. I watched that guy about tapping I've tried a little but It didn't really do anything to me, maybe I just couldn't focus. I loved the movie "The bucket List" :)
I feel you about deviating I also get temped a lot, the only thing stopping is timing,because like you've said the summer around the corner and my husband coming from iraq for r&r in July so I can't cheat!! lol.. Oh thank you for checking up on me and about the funnies, I find them online,save it to my computer just add pic. to my post. :)
Catch you later..
