So between round one and two I lost 53 pounds. If I can give anyone a piece of advice from what I've been through so far it is To stick to your P3 with no cheating. I was in Poland during the last week of P3 and you try eating no carbs in Poland! I paid the price for it. I had a terrible time stabilizing my second round and ended up 8 pounds over my last dosage weight (LDW). Boo. My first round I followed protocol to the letter, didn't cheat, and stabilized 1lb under LDW. if you can fight the mental and emotional battles that put the weight on in the first place and stick to protocol you will be amazed at how you can stabilize. If not, it is like any other diet where you try where you put it back on.
So I ended my last round at 196.8 I started my round three on 10/8/11 at 206.8 (that is after loading for 2 days so I gained some weight during load). It is discouraging to re-lose weight but I learned a lot about the diet, my eating issues and how to do it better for round 3. I will be traveling almost the whole time so I won't know how I am doing very often. I hope to finish my 30 day round with a minimum of 20 pounds lost but will do my best and be happy with where end up (or at least try). So far so good. I have been on the road the entire week of this round and won't be home to weigh for another 6 days.
I feel mentally stronger this round. I had lots of time to adjust to my new size and the changes that come with that. I will write more in that later but bottom line is that people treat you differently she you are closer to normal weight. Some of that has been very difficult. Along with the difficulty is also a lot of positives. I feel better, I am much more aware of how my body reacts to different foods, I feel more confident and lively. I feel like I laugh more. I take more pride in getting ready in the morning and don't feel like fading in to the background quite as much as I did...to be continued.....
