While at work yesterday, the potato chip monster took over and I kept munching on chips. For some unknown reason I have really been craving salt. I am not a salty snack eater but this time around I am. During my lunch hour, a volunteer brought me a piece of cake that she had made. I told her that I couldn't and she insisted. She was nice enough to have cut me sliver of a slice, so I ate it. Later after I got home from work, I took a nap and when I got up, I hurt sooooo bad!! I felt more sore than I had all day. I wasn't going to eat dinner but I cooked anyway and had a small piece of chicken.

So I have decided to stop injections until TOM makes his appearance. Why continue wasting HCG if all I'm doing is cheating. I am really kicking myself because last week I did so good and it only took one weekend to throw it all away!!! So for me, the best thing is just to stop and restart once TOM is over.

Yesterday's Menu:
B: coffee, 6oz. yogurt, potato chips
L: 2 hard boiled eggs w/mustard, 1 sliver of choco cake
D: small grilled chicken breast, 1 small dill pickle, 1 Rome apple

Becca, thanks I think I gained it all back today and the soreness is worse today!!

Biz, hey girl, yes water retention and salt cravings are not helping, thanks for the empathy.

Monica, palm tree shaving is purely for cosmetic reasons but it is to remove all the dead fronds from the bottom up to about half way up, just to make them look purty. My trees have never been done so to start it was very labor intensive. Every muscle on the back side of my body is hurtin' bad.

B, so much for the loss, its back, boo hoo.

Jennay, I didn't realize those muscles were utilized for that purpose so I hurt bad now!!! Jeez, does that cashier know something I don't? Was she trying to prepare me for the worst TOM I've had in a while or what? Yes, I saw him this morning, and I felt a little akward but I didn't let him see that it really affected me. I re-read his text and he was very sweet about it so I didn't feel as bad. Reading it when you're half asleep can get you the wrong idea.

Amie, I never realized that palm trees had such hairy beards, literally!! When I started I actually saw brown hair and it dawned on me, duh, that's why they call it shaving. I'm trying to drink up and also hot tea but the temp here is hot so I only have about one cup.

Jan, I didn't even know those muscles exist till yesterday and today!! So much for yesterday's loss.

Ohhhhhhhhh Marrrrrrrrrrrry-our Queen Deviator! As you know, it's way better to stop the injections than continue to deviate with HCG in your system. You know what's best for you and for sanities sake I think you are doing the right thing!

One thing that helped me when I was craving salt is I would cut up slices of cucumber and put some sea salt and pepper on that (and drink a huge mug of water) and the cravings would suffice. Something else that worked would be to have a couple tbls of apple cider vinegar.

Mary, regardless of how long it takes I have faith in ya!

Don't work too hard today you bush whacker! ;)

Oh MAN! And you were doing so well this round. I kind of hate to see you fall off the wagon, but you are the boss of you! I hope the break does help you and that you can get going again. Let us know how the break early in the round works for you...
