So I was feeling a bit hungrier than usual last night and I decided to test my solution this morning because of that. Turns out my solution is finally losing its potency and explains why my losses are so low and slow. There was a faint mark but it is fading fast. I planned on using it until Labor Day weekend because there is a bazaar at a local monastery and the food is awesome!! I'm going to continue with this solution until I feel exhausted and haggard. I will mix a new batch on Monday and continue on for another 30 days. It sounds like a long time but I really need to get down in weight because the holidays are right around the corner and our Vegas trip is inching closer as well. April will be here before we know it. If I should feel lethargic and weak I will add in a bit of cheese and increase my calories to 800 rather than 500 until Monday. I'm planning on doing a load day on Sunday and part of the reason I'm attending this bazaar. My daughter reminded me that this was exact same thing I went through last year. August 18th was my 1 year anniversary on starting the protocol. I did extremely well on my first round but the following rounds were challenging. Now I've come up on a year and realize that I should and could have done a lot better. Oh well, I shall take this as a learning experience and remember that our Vegas trip is coming up and I want to look, feel great and definitely be a lot less heavier. I would like to try the buffets. Okay, enough ranting, I feel my mind is feeling clearer now and I love that about this protocol.
