P3 Day 14
Breakfast: 1 clementine w/ 1/4 C 2% cottage cheese
Lunch: 1/2 grapefruit, 1/2 C cottage cheese
Dinner: 1/5 of Paul’s AMAZING eggplant lasagna
Snacks: 2 organic (no sugar added) fruit flat, 1 small square of Lindt 75% chocolate
Water: 100 oz
Total Cals= 1374, Carbs= 67, Protein= 76, Fats= 48
Breakfast: 1/2 grapefruit
Lunch: 2 pieces of pizza (at his buddies Pizza Parlor)
Dinner: 1/5 eggplant lasagna
Snack: popcorn, 1 square of Lindt 75% chocolate
I just can't seem to get this right! I was SO MAD this morning when I stepped on the scale and saw the gain. I think the problem yesterday was that I didn't eat enough cals but what am I suppose to do...eat ALL day? I just don't get hungry much and when I do, I eat. I made Paul's amazing eggplant lasagna yesterday and it was so satisfying, filling and delicious! Ya'll saw Ed's menu so even after eating the pizza and POPCORN he only gained 1 lb. I'm tellin' ya this P3 is tricky stuff, and the key is to EAT!!!
My legs and calves are so sore I swear I can barely walk. Ed had an appointment this morning so I did my jog/walk with Jackson (our pup) for 50 min. and then did my workout. I'm glad I don't have to work out this weekend-I need to let my body re-coop!
Today we are going to the Art Festival downtown and I'm sure I won't have any problems getting my cals in (hee, hee)! We plan on eating before we go (which should help)! I want to go get wings and beer for dinner so we'll see.....
Okay, in response to our blogger buds-
Hi Jan, our P3 Pro- Um, yeah P4 is right around and it sure will be interesting to see how I do after my "modified P3" (wink, wink)! I told ya I'm doing it backwards-P4 THEN P3 LOL!
Liz- I've been wonderin' about you! I checked your blog last night but no update. P3 has gone fast (probably because we've been having so much fun)! The work outs are here to stay. The ladies book that I'm following has the hottest body and weighs 120 (a pound off of where I'm at) she looks smokin' HOT so she's my motivation not LIW! C'mon over to Texas and get you some SUN! Oh, I feel for ya! Today on my walk it was a perfect 76 degrees-LOVE IT!
Lil- My good 'ole buddy girl! I read your blog last night and I see you are out playing with the big dawgs-YOU GO GIRL! Those endorphins are the best and YES it is so addicting. OMG, P2 already? Okay, we are all here for ya cheering you on! Thanks for the comment on the pics-awwww!
Hi Shell- I know, I wanna be like you! You are eating and loving life and staying stable. If I could just stay stable right here I'd be just fine. Um, so how long after working out do you not get sore anymore? I'm dying and I swear the 2nd day after is the WORST!
Mary- Thanks as always sweet Marrray! I drank some Cab Merlot last night and thought of ya! Hope all is well. Guess what? It's Friday!!!!
Becca- I need to make sure your account is "active" in the forum. I will make sure and check on that today. What's with all your technical problems? Are you sure it's not on the "user end"...just kiddin'! How do you like your hair hot mama?
Biz- So what? Not enough cals huh? It is just a "thang" and I need find something that I can beat when the scale goes up after I've been a "good girl!" It makes me so frustrated! I'm so sick of the scale ya know?! Whip me into shape sista!
Ya'll we made it to Friday! Hold on I need to do a cartwheel!
Make it a GREAT DAY!

P3 Day 13
Love those egg days....wait, I mean I don't "love them" but I love the results. I'm totally fine if I don't have eggs for awhile!!!
So I'll take the 1.4 loss and Ed lost .2! I think my LIW is within sight! I walked an extra 15 minutes today and I did my upper body workout which was very painful since I'm still sore from the last time. Work through the pain baby!
Not much going on around here! The weather has been perfect-Ed and I didn't want to come in after our walk today. I love it here in Texas during the spring...it is B-E-A-utiful!!! We plan on going golfing on Monday and we can't wait!
In response to our HCG family-
Jan- OMG, I hate the snow! I grew up in Utah where it snowed like 9 months out of the year (okay maybe I'm exaggerating but it felt like it)! I think I'm getting this P3 handled and I'm sure with me drinking wine today I'll be feeling great either way! ;)
Marlene- Awww, thanks-we had to get a pic in the blue bonnets! The egg day works girlfriend-just make sure you drink lots of water!!!
Shelly- I don't wear my wedding ring at home so when I just read your comment I tried it on and it's a bit snug so I am retaining water! Guess what? I don't care!!!! But Biz is helping me so with all hopes I can get closer to LIW before P4 starts in 3 days (hee, hee)!
Biz- I know, I'm all messed up too! I know that I have to work first and then play! How about if I text you my numbers each morning? LOL
Mary- Yeah, as long as I'm feeling great that is ALL that matters-LOL! I feel so stupid being upset about being 121-like gimmie a break! OMG, get out the Shiraz girl-you will love it!!!
Becca- You are hilarious! Um, I only burp when I eat eggs! Ed on the other hand....duck for your lives!!! I love you Becca! Yes, watch that show it's very interesting!
I can't wait to report another loss tomorrow! It's almost Friday-yipeeeee!!!
Thanks for being a part of our lives!

P3 Day 17
P3 Day 12
Well Helllllllllllllo there! So what do ya'll think of that? I swear that Ed ate and drank SO MUCH more than me and he is only 2.2 over LIW. Honestly, when I saw that I was 122.4 I was relieved!! I jogged yesterday for 40 min (Ed walked for 30) and did my upper body workout. Today I jogged for 40 min (Ed walked for 30) then I did my lower body workout. I'm BEAT and still so sore!!! I know everyone says that you retain water from working out-I wonder how much.
So Biz is doing a P3 boot camp in the HCG Forum (that ya'll need to become members of)! http://myhcgjourney.com/forums
I am doing an egg day today and then will start the boot camp tomorrow. I am determined to get closer to my LIW before the 21 days are up-LOL! Biz made a comment that Ed and I skipped P3 and went right into P4 (but it takes one to know one)! I was so excited to hit goal that I just wanted to celebrate...so I did (I mean Ed and I did)!
Ya'll are so sweet, thanks for the comments on our pics! Ya know we both feel really good and healthy. If I wouldn't have weighed myself I would've never known I was over LIW since everything still fits the same. I'm so confident in this protocol and I know that with some work and "strict dieting" I'll get it handled.
In response to all your sweet comments-
Hi Becca Boo- OMG, we eat so different now. This protocol has completely changed the way we think about food. We don't feel the need to stuff ourselves. We were watching this show on TV the other night saying to put your knife and fork down after each bite of food and chew 20 times before swallowing and you'll get fuller faster. We have been doing that and it works! Becca, yes Ed is going to do another round after we get back from Mexico-he wants to be shirt less by this summer. It will be interesting having him in P2 and me not (it will be a test of will power for him). I'll probably just live on cottage cheese since he hates cottage cheese and then just eat more of what I make him. Oh goodness! So about the flat iron-the Chi is a great but yeah, it's pricey. Go to Sally Beauty-they have great deals!
What's going on our little college chica Marlene- I still can't believe how well you did traveling...look at you! Ed does look great huh? He loves the compliments-thanks!
Liz- Girl, what's been going on? I didn't get to read all of your blog yet but I WILL TODAY! You were only like 5 lbs over-don't you worry (shoot, it could be worse-look at ME)! Join Biz' boot camp with me girlfriend! Your daughter Grace (what a cute name) tell her our dogs name is Jackson and he would love her too if they met (he LOVES kids)!
Monica- Hey you! Yeah, this weekend was a "what's a diet" weekend. It was so fun but now I have to be strict and good while Ed continues to be bad. I hope you updated your blog-been wondering about you!!! Aww, we do look happy in our pic huh? WE ARE!
Marrrray- And thank YOU for the comment. What is this-the never ending spring break? When your daughter gets back to school we'll celebrate together with some wine okay?! I hope you got everything worked out with the home.
Bizzy- My Biz, if you will remember (I told you like 100 times) I have to work out in the mornings before I get online because as soon as I open up this laptop my day disappears. I need to get up a little earlier but why? (hee, hee)!
Shelly- What's up SuperWoman? Oh we had to get pics of us in the beautiful bluebonnets-they are all almost in full bloom. We are going to take our "bluebonnet drive" this weekend. My cheekbones? I had to go look to see what you were talking about-that's funny you noticed that because I didn't! Enjoy the amazing weather (it sure makes exercise so enjoyable huh)?!
Alright well Ed has just come home and poured himself a cocktail....ewwww he is so mean!!!
I need to go boil my egggggggggggggggs and cry!!!
Have a great day peeps!

P3 Day 11
Well look who decided to show up....Ed and Jenn are back!!! What a weekend! We had so much fun playing in the sun and eating delicious foods! We both decided on the way home last night (as we were eating popcorn) that we would wait to weigh in until tomorrow-why end the party already? LOL!
You know even with as much as we ate (turkey, ham, sweet potatoes, deviled eggs, desserts, many beverages) we don't feel like we over did it (HA)! I only ate 1 plate of food at our Easter meal, breakfast we ate eggs and fruit and dinner was mostly seafood. Oh yeah and not to mention tons of crawfish-yum! Our clothes still fit the same so we'll see how nice the scale is to us tomorrow!
I feel like we've been gone for so long! I've been wondering about all of you. I WILL get to all of your blogs today to check on my peeps.
In response to your comments:
Mary, Mary, Mary! HELLLLLLO! Oh I wonder how YOU are doing! Still drinking wine? Is your daughter back to school this week? I hope all is well....I missed you girl!
Regina- Thanks for calling and checking on me! So now I'm home and you are leaving. At least you'll have your laptop so we can catch up. Have a safe trip and a great P3-you got Biz in your back pocket so no worries (and we both know how bossy she is)! Love you Regina!
Marlene- How you been? How was your trip? OMG, I need to go catch up on YOU! We took after pics of Ed this weekend so hopefully I'll be able to update some pics tonight. Thanks so much for the compliments. My stomach is flat? Wow, never thought I'd hear that-LOL! You know honestly I think the "dirty secret" is losing that last 15 lbs of fat. I believe that is when all the sculpting took place. I also try to keep my stomach flexed as much as possible (while I'm on the computer or driving or whenever I think about it)! Hope all is well with you!
Becca- Hi sweets-sheesh been missin you too! Glad you like your hair-it’s so much easier to style when it's short! I'm sure your daughter has better instructions than I do for your hair but I like to part it, blow dry it straight and then section it off and use a ceramic 1 1/2" flat iron. If you buy a flat iron that has different temperature settings you don't need to worry about it damaging your hair (as bad). I also use a heat protecting spray right before I flat iron, which seems to help. I know, how about I just fly over and meet ya and show you k?!
Oh MY BIZ! I pulled a "Biz" and went MIA...how does it feel?! As you know, I didn't bring my phone charger so after Saturday I had no phone! Awww, I love you...thanks for missing me like I miss YOU!!!
I hope ya'll had a great weekend and all is well in Protocoland! I will make sure and update after my work out tomorrow. Oh dear wish us luck!!!
Have a great day my friends!

P3 Day 7
Well hello there friends!!! We have been all over the place the last couple of days. We are leaving for the weekend and I need to get everything packed up but I couldn't go without saying hello to our Protocoland family! I miss ya'll!!!
I'm still not within the 2 lbs LIW and I still don't care. Ed and I have been walking in the mornings and today I decided it was time step it up and jog. I was able to jog for 30 min and then my knees started to hurt (never had that happen before) so I walked for another 25 min and I feel great. I'm amazed how my body has picked up where I left off. I was worried that I'd be feeling weak but the opposite is true. I didn't get to do my workout at home yesterday and won't be working out this weekend either. We plan on eating all sorts of good foods this weekend so our report on Monday is going to be interesting.
I have not been home to check blogs but I want you to know that I've been thinking about ya'll!
In response to your comments:
Mary, Mary- So yeah, Ed had to keep his eyes closed and wear these funky goggles all night. I hate driving in Houston and I had to drive us home that afternoon and he couldn't help me. Let's just say I missed our exit TWICE! He was over in the passenger’s side with his goggles on saying "where are we now?" I'm so glad he can see and do all the driving again. LOL
Becca- What's up girl? You need to convince your hubby to get his eyes done. Ed was yelling in the shower yesterday "I can see the whiskers on my face!" It's been really funny going through this with him- it's like he has new eyes and can see clear for the first time. Even yesterday he was pointing out a bug on the windshield. He drove us home last night and he didn't mention anything about the other cars headlights so your hubby needs to stop worrying and DO IT!!! Aww, you got your hair cut?! I love having shorter hair I keep asking myself "why didn't I do this sooner?" I know you look so adorable-just use a flat iron.
Jan- Oh my...how have you been? How is P3 going? YES, it means no more glasses. Ed wants to take his glasses and stomp them to pieces. I need to go check on you!!!
Monica- Hi P3 sista! Thanks for your encouragement...ALWAYS! I'm still striving to get near 115 again but I'm thinking that even if I stay at around 120, sheesh I can't complain. I'm loving working out again. It's so nice having the fat gone and being able to move so much easier. I gotta get toned for our cruise!
Shelly- And how you been? Girl, you need to look into the eye surgery. They now have a bladeless cut that's done with laser so the accuracy is 100%. Contacts are such a PITA. We both were so sick of looking for his eye drops, contact case, glasses...you know! Why not make our lives a little easier ya know?!
Regina- I've been missing YOU! I can't wait for Monday to come so everything can get back to "normal!" I'm scared of my weigh in on Monday but I know I have Biz to keep us in check. So you leave Tuesday right? I hope you know how appreciative I am for you and David. Thanks for getting everything handled with the forum-it's time for you to go on vacation!!! Love you Regina! Oh yeah, and I work out with dumbbells at home.
Liz- Hello! I need to go check on you and see how things are going. Ya'll are like family to me and when I miss a couple of days I feel so "off!" Thanks for always checking on us. Um, and yeah the eye surgery was WAY weirdish. I had no idea what the inside of an eyeball looks like...but now I do (ewww)! Hope you are doing good!
Lili- And YOU, where you been girl? You worked out too huh? NICE! It's so NOT fun stepping on the scale during P3. I'm learning it's not worth the stress. I need to focus on healthly and not being skinny. MEXICO...OMG, we are still planning on going but still have not booked the tickets. Ed has 2 major sign installations the beginning of April so we may not be going until the end of April but YES we are going!!! Thanks for checking on us, I miss you around here!
Okay, I guess I need to get going. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend and don't eat the Peeps!
Love you guys, see you Monday!!!!

P3 Day 5
We were MIA yesterday!!! Ed has his eye surgery and it went PERFECTLY! I have to take him back down there again this morning so I gotta make this quick. Awww, when Ed woke up this morning he was telling me "I can see perfectly" OMG, that's so exciting. I was able to watch the surgery-it was so amazing (kind of creepy)!
So ya'll I'm soooooooooooo sore from working out! Today I'm up again and yesterday I was down .6! I'm sure my body is retaining water because we haven't been eating anything that isn't "P3 friendly." My cals were a little low yesterday (1380) which could be the reason too. Ed is right at his LIW! Well you show my how it's done boy!!! BTW, he has been eating everything I have but MORE!!!
Thanks for the comments Mary Moe, Jan, Shelly and Regina! I will make sure and check on ya'll tonight!!!
Sorry I had to make this so short and quick!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

P3 Day 3
LIW: +5.0 (we are scared to know what his weight was yesterday before the steak day-oh my)!
Well happy St. Patrick’s Day my friends! So our steak day was good (but not as good as it should've been). Ed went and bought the steaks at 5 pm because we were starving and I wanted to be eating at 6 pm. Well our stupid 2 year old F250 broke down yesterday on his way to the store. This has been the truck from HELL-ya'll know what Ford stands for right (Found on the Road Dead). I called 4 different taxi companies and after waiting 2.5 hours and having none of them show up (with repeated phone calls mind you) he finally hitched a ride from a sweet little single Mom. Ed gave her $20 and she started crying because she needed money to pay her electricity bill today....awwww! As frustrating as it all was that was a nice ending.
So anyway Ed didn't even get home until around 8 pm so we didn't eat our steaks until 8:30-ahhh! I'm sure with eating the steaks that late wasn't good but oh well!
Today was the start of my work out! Whooo Hoooo! We went for a 30 min brisk walk and then I came home and did my upper body workout! I felt amazing and extremely light. My body felt foreign to me. I could care less if I gain, I'm excited to start to see my body change and tone up without all the layers of fat!
We are doing an egg day today (again)! We decided since we played all weekend it's probably a good idea to stay home and eat green eggs-HA!
In response to yesterday's comments:
Liz- LOL! I know we are going to try the stupid hard way for losing weight which is exercise and eating healthy. OMG, can you imagine only losing like a pound or with any hopes 2 lbs a week doing it the way "they" say we should do it to lose weight. I'm thinking "give me my HCG again and I'll be back down to LIW no problem!"
Shelly- I'm "over" being over my LIW-LOL! I'm expecting a gain now that I've started working out but who cares what the scale says when you are toned and tight-you hear me sista! Keep going you maniac!
Becca- Hi sweets!!! Yeah, we are enjoying our P3 a little toooooo much. Becca, since you are starting another round soon I wouldn't stress too much about being over LIW ya know?! Ed is going to start another round and yes, I believe he will start again when Biz does so ya'll will be P2 buddies! I miss you girl!
Since I'll be working out in the mornings I probably won't be posting until mid day from now on. Alrighty well I'm off to go eat some eggs....
Have a great day ya'll! Sorry, I gotta say it....have an egggggggggggggcellent day!

P3 Day 2
Today: ? (woke up late no weigh in)
Okay so Winston made my whole day! Have ya'll been to his blog? http://freemefromfatjail.blogspot.com/ Winston went to Jamaica to visit his family and was gone for a week and gained 18 lbs! The best part is in 4 days he has lost 11.4 lbs and is now only 6.6 from his LIW. Thank you Dr. S for sharing the steak day with all of us over indulgers!!! Suddenly my 5.2 over LIW didn't seem too bad!
We had a great time last night! The people that we met didn't even recognize me (they all knew me with long hair). The compliments were great and of course they all wanted to know how we did it. Ed and I don't even go there. Last night’s response was: low calorie, no processed foods, fruits and veggies. I mean yeah, if you do that you could lose 50 lbs too! NOT! It's okay none of them needed to lose weight so I knew they were just asking but not enquiring.
Ed and I are doing a big ole steak day today-YUM!!!
Liz- How you been? It was great to hear the compliments but I get kind of embarrassed and don't like it if they keep talking about it! It's like "okay, thanks, really thanks, now shut up!" LOL
Winston- Buddy! I am so glad you commented today and told me all that. I didn't even know you were home so that was such a great surprise. I felt all hopeless this morning but now you have shown me no matter what the damage is, it can be corrected! Awesome Winston! BTW, thanks for the compliment!
Jan- You are so adorable! It's the wine, the wine! I love it! I am so glad to have you a part of our HCG family. You'll breeze right through this P3 because you aren't bad like me! What's funny is now that I'm in P3 and can have wine I haven't been drinking it lately...I need to start that up again!
Hope you enjoy your Sunday!
Saturday, March 15, 2008
P3 Day 1
Hi ya'll!!! So I guess there's no sense in posting our P3 meals. We did great all day up until the dessert....you don't even want to know how divine it was!
I don't have much time to post since we are off again for the day. We are going to meet some old co workers and they haven't seen us since we lost weight-I'm excited to see their reactions.
I don't have time to check blogs today-hope ya'll are doing great! Thanks for your comments yesterday Regina, Mary, Dawn, Monica and Shelly!
Happy Saturday!!! We are off to enjoy the St. Patty's festivities-LIW? What's LIW? LOL
Friday, March 14, 2008
P3 Day 5
J: nectarine, 2 grilled chicken salads with tom, cucumber and red onion (blue cheese dressing), sautéed mushrooms and zucchini in butter, caprese salad, 1 clementine, 4 strawberries, apple, 1 square of 85% chocolate
E: grilled chicken salad w/ 2 T. blue cheese, 4 strawberries, turkey burger with no bun, 1 spoonful of PB, 1 pickle
Oh ya'll it was so great eating all day! I felt like I ate soooooo much and my total cals only equaled 1500. I was so happy to see a loss this morning!!! I plan on sticking to mostly raw again today with lots of fruits and veggies.
So Ed decided that he's done with this round (52 days is plenty long)! His LIW was Wednesday and his LIW is 222.0. So that means tomorrow he'll officially be on P3. Just in time for the St. Patricks Day weekend.
We are going out again today and tonight.....uh oh!!! We are going to a seafood restaurant and Miss Bizzy helped give us some good ideas so we DON'T GAIN!!! Wish us luck....LOL!
In response to our friends:
Hey Miss Mary- All I remember them saying was that Ed was going to have to wear these funky glasses and then can't open his eyes for at least 4 hours. Oh, it should be FUN! Girl, I'm so over the LIW I'm just happy to be eating real foods again!!!
Shell- I have been taking my measurements and despite the gain I'm still the same....phew! I will start the workout on Monday. I plan on running 3-4 days a week (30 min.) then doing my weights 3 days a week. I'm ready.....
KJ-NO, it's not you-the forum is down. Did you get my email? We hope to have it up and running by this afternoon but temporarily we have a "gathering place" at http://hcgsupport.yourbb2.com/ (just re-register and then log in)! I can't wait to hear the details on your "Jenn Day!"
Hey Jan- Thank you so much! I know, I need to just quit stressing because I feel great. We have a great life and so much fun and I need to let myself relax and enjoy it! I'm gettin it handled, I'm such a perfectionist and want to do this right ya know?!
Monica- Whassssup chica!!! Got your email...thank you and I will be getting back to you! We are P3 sisters! LIW or not...it's time! You are right, once I start getting tightened up I won't give a shiz what the scale says-I mean c'mon! LOL, what you wrote to Ed-yeah, it's time to give it up Buddy Boy!!!
Liz- Hey you! So yep, Ed is done-I didn't mean to doubt my man but I knew he'd want to be done as soon as he saw my gigantic salad with blue cheese dressing...yum! Girl, don't get discouraged that you didn't lose-we need to figure out what's going on. I read your blog right before I went to bed and I'll be on my way over there to comment. Stay strong!!!
Marshall- Hey thanks for the compliments my friend! We will take Ed's "after" pics this weekend-he looks great too! Yeah, I know, can you believe that chunky monkey was ME?! I am so glad we took before pics (as hard as it was)! Pictures are worth a thousand words. If I saw my pics I'd be like "um...sign me up!" LOL
Well ya'll we made it to Friday!!! Whoo hoo!!! Make it a great day. Thanks for being here for us-love you guys!
Thursday, March 13, 2008
J: 8 eggs (scrambled, deviled)
B: coffee w/stevia
L: 1 can of low sodium tuna (mustard, onion powder, stevia)
D: (we went out for the night and shared) 12 boiled shrimp, 4 oysters (2 crackers), 2 jalapeno poppers, Ceviche, crab dip w/ corn chips, grilled chicken salad w/ranch dressing
1 L of water
Wow huh? So yeah, I guess my semi egg day didn't work out so well-LOL! If I would’ve know we were going to be going out I would not have had that many eggs! So I'm back up, now I'm 4.0 over LIW and Ed gained 2.2 lbs. Ya'll we aren't very good examples.
Ed was going to make yesterday his LIW but now that he gained he wants to go until he gets back to 218-sheesh! I told him he should just be done because all he's doing is losing then gaining and it's not worth it. We forgot to do his injection today so maybe yesterday could be his LIW and then he'd be like me and be OVER his LIW on the 1st day of the 72 hr's until P3! See we are partners in crime huh?!
I ran some errands this morning and also went to the grocery store! There is NO WAY I'm going to do another steak or egg day again today. I'm taking Biz' advice and eating mostly raw and lots of fruits and veggies...oh it feels so good to EAT!!!!
I'm going to focus on feeding my body good healthy foods and not stressing about my LIW. I am anxious to begin working out and I know that when I start that my weight will fluctuate. Sheesh, I mean even if I went up to 120, I'm HAPPY!!!
How are my buds doin? In response to your comments yesterday:
Monica- I'm with ya girl! I need to just give it up and start working out! Enough of this LIW b/s-LOL!
Mary, Mary- Oh no, so you mean I'm going to have to get Ed dressed and do everything for him? Oh wait, that's nothing new (hee, hee)! I'm sure he'll love having an excuse for me to be at his every beck and call "yes my King!" Egg day, smegg day...
Lil- Where YOU been? I miss you tons girl! Thanks for checkin' on us!!!!!
Hi sweet Liz- Thanks for the encouragement, buff body here I come! Your story about your eye...OMG! I bet you never did that again did you? SCARY, that could've killed you! Yeah, and you are right...as long as you can see with both eyes put together, you're doing great! LOL
Beautiful Becca- It has taken so much nerve for Ed to decide he wanted the eye surgery. Men are soooo wimpy when it comes to pain. You let your husband know that if Ed and do it, he can do it!
Well now that the day is almost OVER I guess I'll go ahead and post this! I'll be checkin' on ya'll tonight...hope all is well!!!
Wednesday, March 12, 2008
J: 11 eggs (scrambled, deviled)
Ed: B: coffee w/stevia
L: chicken with tomato
D: chili w/ chicken
J: 4 L of water, 2 c tea E: 1.5 L of water
So I lost 1 pound! I did my measurements again this morning and everything is still the same (phew)! I am going to do one more egg day today and then with all hopes I'll be able to start my real P3 tomorrow. Ed lost 3 lbs today, so he is back on track (just in time for the weekend) LOL!
I would like to start working out but I'm patiently waiting until I get closer to LIW although I'm not sure if that makes any sense. Regardless of where my weight is-Monday is the day!!!
In response to yesterday's comments:
Hey Mary- Yeah, the steak was stupid because it didn't have enough cals. The egg day was better (at least I didn't have to starve all day)! So glad to hear about your successful laser eye surgery. Ed is nervous about what if he "forgets" and rubbs his eyes afterwards....ewwww! He said he always thought the worst torture would be getting a paper cut on his eye and that's what's about to happen. I'm no help, I just start screaming when we talk about it! Thank you Mama, for my perfect 20/20 eyes!
Monica- YOU are the one that seems calmer than me about being over LIW. Oh girl, I haven't been calm. Like I told you it's never fun to see a gain. I like your approach of just not worrying about it. I feel great and I know it just takes time for everything to balance out.
Becca- I thought about doing the protein shake day today. I need to go read up on that. The protein shake I have is low in cals so I would have to add in lots of fruits to make up for the calories my body needs so that I don't have a repeat of Monday! Oh, and I wanted to tell you that I wouldn't recommend doing the P2 protein day more than once or twice a week because the fruits and veggies help with digestion. Glad I could help motivate your co-workers-LOL!
Hi Liz- Thanks for checkin’ on us! You were electrocuted? Oh my Liz!!! Well I am certainly grateful as well that you still have one good eye. I'm surprised you don't have to wear glasses-that must be one really GOOD eye. I checked your blog last night but there was no update, it's okay I know you are doing fantastic!!!
Okay, that's all she wrote! Hope all is well in Protocoland!

J: Steak Day with 16 oz of Bison steak (stupid)
E: B: coffee w/stevia
L: chili w/ turkey breast
D: chili w/ turkey breast
S: 1 oz cheddar cheese, 1 pickle
J: 4 L of water, E: 1 L of water
Okay so you'd think with this being my 3rd P3 I'd have this figured out a little better! So the Bison steak only had a total of 500 cals! I didn't want any greasy fatty steak so I went with an organic Bison steak and you know what? I didn't even think about the cals until this morning when I was stumped! Stupid! So needless to say I'm totally bugged! I starved ALL DAY for what? It's okay....whatevaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! I'm doing Biz' famous egg day today, and it better work..............or else!!!!
Biz also reminded me that at the clinics they tell you that your weight will fluctuate between 5-8 lbs-OH MY! That did help me feel a "little" better.
Ed is still holding strong and wants to go until he hits 215. We are both all messed up and our routine is off. He left the house without his injection today but came home to get "poked!" LOL
Okay so I can't wait until I can enjoy P3. I sure started this P3 off with a bang huh?! Oh well, it was worth it and I know I'll get it handled.
In response to yesterdays comments:
Marrray sweet Marrray- What? Steak and eggs on P2? LOL! Thanks for helping me out and eating that for me. So Ed is going to get his surgery on the 18th....he is sooooooo excited!!! So you had it done too?
CB- My little esteem booster bud! Pretty amazing what our bods look like with some of the fat gone huh?! It's such a compliment for people to think I've been exercising especially since all I've been doing is sitting on my butt! I swear this is the protocol for the ambitiously lazy!!! I love HCG! Be safe traveling, we'll miss you!
Becca- Did you get my email? Ya'll had some great questions. So yeah you are right. I need to realize that my body needs to find its own set point. You know how P3 is, it can be a bit frustrating. I know today will bring better losses so I need to just "chill!"
Liz- You are another sweet, sweet encouraging soul! Thank you so much for your comments. Yeah, we have learned to be very "cautious" and choose our words wisely when talking about the protocol! NEVER, EVER say you are injecting yourself....well not unless you want to open a can of worms! LOL! How you doin? I need to go check on you!
There she is....Shelly! You know what's strange? Since I felt so bad on that last day I had the HCG-now when I think about HCG it kind of messes with me and makes me feel sick-I was not feeling good at all!!! I'm glad I took it to the extreme! The flame bikini....oh dear, mama's going swim suit shopping for a new one-a better one! LOL
Okay well I better get this puppy published!
Hope ya'll are doing good. Have an egggggggggggggggggggcellent day!

How about that ya'll! First day of P3 and I'm 4 lbs over LIW!!! I think it's funny. We had so much fun yesterday! What's P2? What's P3?
We went to a wine festival yesterday and had a great time. We also enjoyed a "baaad" delicious meal at this really quaint little cafe. Not to mention we "dove into" the tin of Dale and Thomas (chocolate covered) popcorn that has been teasing us. YUMO!
So yes we will be drinking lots of water and then of course I'll be enjoying my wonderful Bison steak for dinner. I know how to do P3 right and I'll get back to LIW, I'm not worried at all! Ed didn't even dare to weigh today. We are back on track and he's determined to get to 215 by the end of next week.
Thanks to all of you for your self esteem booster comments. I love telling people that I lost 50 lbs WITH OUT exercise. I had a good debate with a girl this weekend. It really bothers me when people become experts at something they know NOTHING about it. Ed said I did good at making my point. Oh and guess what? She was overweight and jealous so there-Haters!
Ed has an appointment for laser eye surgery today. If they give him the "go ahead" he will be getting it today-we are both so excited!
I obviously haven't been around this weekend but I will be able to read blogs today and catch up on my friends. Hope you all had a nice weekend with great losses.

48 hrs. completed
Hello to all of our friends (who are the sweetest people ever)! So guess what???? Friday was my LIW! Looks like I was "right on" with my goal. Ready for the story?!
I had a very interesting day on Friday! I was obviously excited and was feeling GREAT! I was just "doing my thing" and then around 2 pm I started to get this really strange headache (hunger type headache). I figured I just needed to eat so I ate some cottage cheese and an orange. Well about 5 min later I started to have bathroom "issues" (let's just say I couldn't stop going). Then I started seeing spots and felt weak like I was going to faint. I thought hmm, maybe it's from all the all the jumping up and down I had been doing (hee, hee)!
I decided to just chill on the couch and then I saw that Biz got online to Messenger to chat. I stared to tell Biz how I had a headache (but nothing else, because I knew she would freak out)! Well Biz being Biz started asking me questions and then suggested I call a clinic and ask questions. I called the MD Diet where I got our injections from our first round. I talked to the nurse and then she transferred me to the doctor. I told him my weight, days on VLCD and my symptoms. Well guess what? He said my symptoms are "right on" that it's time to be done. I explained that I'm not "ravenously hungry" like Dr. S says explains and he said "yes you are, you've just been doing this so long that your body isn't telling your brain that you are hungry" he also said that the patients he has seen that have gone until the abnormal fat is gone don't always feel hunger but more cravings. It was strange that he said that because the previous night I had such strange cravings and tastes in my mouth (I could actually taste the foods). That was not normal for me. So the best part about the whole conversation with him was at the very end of the call he said "oh yeah and congratulations!" Wow, thate was cool to hear!!
So, this is how it feels when you’re abnormal fat is gone...I'M DONE! The time has come! He said to up my cals to 800 during the 72 hours, then start P3! I am so grateful I called (Biz made me do it)! You know how on HCG you feel so good with plenty of energy? That was certainly gone. I felt sick and my head was foggy. On Friday Ed was saying he wasn't going to give me my injection "enough is enough" and I told him to "shut up and poke me!" LOL! So when I started feeling sick I was like "oh great, maybe Ed was right!" Ed usually works from home and Friday he wasn't home all day. Once he FINALLY called I told him everything and of course I got the whole "I told you" talk...blah, blah, blah!
So ya'll, I did it...I tested the limits for all of us! I didn't expect it all to end so abruptly! It's like going on the Big Shot at the Stratosphere in Vegas and having no countdown just BLAST OFF!! I have so many mixed emotions. All of your comments made my day so emotional. I am amazed at all of the love! You were all right there with me. Words can't express how thankful I am for all of you and your heart felt comments.
So my final round is complete! It's time to enjoy a life of FREEDOM and no more diets! Although it looks like I’ll be doing a steak day on my first P3 day-HA! We ate so much crawfish and drinks and…well lots of “baaaad” foods! I could care less about the gain, we had a great day. Here are my final pics and measurements (thanks Biz for your help)! Do ya’ll like my flame bikini? We had to use a few safety pins but we made it work.
Ed is planning on continuing until he hits 215 (who knows how long that will take)! LOL! So we will be posting his pics and measurements on his LIW.
We are off to go to a local wine festival! We'll make sure to hit the store to buy me a steak for my steak day tomorrow! I've never had to do a steak day on my first P3, what a great start! It's perfect! LOL!
Hope ya'll have a nice Sunday. Love you guys!
Oh yeah, THIS PROTOCOL WORKS!!!!

Today: 115.0 (I hit my 50 lb mark)!
R3 Release: 27.0
R3 Release: 28.8
B: coffee w/stevia (J: tea w/stevia)
L: chili with ground turkey breast
S: 1/4 c cottage cheese, 1 pickle
D: 1/2 can tuna, 2 glasses of Chardonnay
3 L water, 2 c tea
TODAY'S THE DAY! I'm so excited I can barely handle it!!! I would like to share one of our favorite stories that relates so much to this journey.
This story is about a man named Mel Fisher, a dreamer, a visionary, a legend and most importantly, the World’s Greatest Treasure Hunter! Mel Fisher did what many have not - he realized his dream during his lifetime. Mel moved his entire family from California to Florida to begin his journey, searching for the greatest ship wreck with the most treasure ever lost at sea on the ship called the "Atocha" that sank during a hurricane on September 6, 1622, near Key West, Florida. Everyday he insisted, “Today’s the Day”! Mel Fisher suffered many personal losses to keep his dream alive during his 16 year search and endured over 100 court battles which ended in victory in the US Supreme Court. The riches Mel Fisher, his team and investors had worked so hard for all those years were finally theirs. The $450 million dollar treasure cache or “Atocha Mother Lode” would be found on that momentous day, July 20, 1985. Over 40 tons of silver and gold were located including over 100,000 Spanish silver coins known as "Pieces of Eight", gold coins, Columbian emeralds, silver and gold artifacts and over 1000 silver bars. The immensity of the Atocha’s treasure is staggering. What was only a dream instantly became an undeniable reality. As Mel Fisher would say, “Today’s the Day!”
Ed and I relate so much to that story. Every single day I would see the HUGE 115 I had on my computer screen (I put my goal in a place I would see it most)! Since Aug. 25, 2007 I have focused on that number. I doubted myself so many times (with each deviation) but never gave up...my treasure was waiting!!!
When Ed insisted we order Kevin Trudeau's book off of an infomercial because he wanted to "look just like him!" I was doubtful! When the book arrived I was even more doubtful. How was I going to find HCG? Well as you all know, "when you want something bad enough you'll find a way, if you don't you'll find excuses!" Well we found a way! When we did our first round we paid over $800 to get our pre-filled injections for both of us (43 days) and we were excited because "we found the cure!" Our first round was a mess! We had no support, only each other and we thought we were going to die of hunger! It was like our whole world of eating out and playing was flipped upside down! We pushed through and didn't quit! Thankfully at the end of the round I found Renee's blog which linked us to Biz's blog! Finally we found other "crazy" people like us who were doing this "crazy" diet! We completed our first round with a loss of 30.8 lbs (Ed) and 23.2 lbs (Jenn). We took a 4 week break and then we went back for a second round. Thanks to Regina we found how we could purchase and mix the HCG ourselves. We went 23 days and lost 17.2 lbs (Ed) and 11.6 lbs (Jenn)! It was a horrible round. We were exercising everyday and not deviating, soooo hungry and just all around didn't have a good time! We took another 4 week break and then started our R3. This round has been the best round yet! Not only because of the great losses and no hunger but because we started this blog and got involved in the HCG community! I don't know how we ever did it without you all!!!
We are truly grateful with all our hearts to Dr. Simeons for sharing this miracle. We also thank KT for bringing this info to the public! And I must thank my best friend, Ed, my dreamer who is always reaching for what seems impossible!
We want to send the BIGGEST "THANK YOU" to each of you for being there for us through each deviation, each doubt, each question and each VICTORY! We love you guys!!!
We are continuing injections until the 11th and then we are bidding R3 (my final round) farewell! Ed will be doing another round and we will continue this blog through it all!
Thanks for all the comments and encouragement that you sent yesterday (and everyday)! We will be taking final pics and measurements on Tuesday (and yes I'm going to take them in my flame bikini...I'll do my best to tighten it up to make it fit since it's a bit big)!
Thanks for sharing this moment with me today!
Happy, Happy Friday!!!

R3 Release: 25.2
R3 Release: 26.6
B: coffee w/stevia (J: tea w/stevia)
L: 1/2 can low sodium tuna (mixed w/onion powder, mustard, powdered stevia)
S: 1/4 c cottage cheese, 1 pickle
D: 3.5 oz grilled chicken
3 L water, 2 c tea
Happy, Happy, Happy! So I have a new dilemma! I am almost to my goal and have 5 days until LIW. I guess I won't stop at 115 and just keep on keepin’ on! I would love to test the theory that Dr. S talks about and going until all the abnormal fat is used up and I get "ravenously hungry!" Still no hunger as of now but would be thrilled to get hungry!!!
Can you believe we are pulling these big losses at the end like this? This week alone (since Monday) I have lost 4.6 lbs and Ed has lost 6.3...ya'll that's crazy! We have never done this good on any rounds at anytime! In my past (before HCG) my best weight that I maintained at was 120 so I guess since I broke through that my body is just going for it (like I told it too)! This is the lowest Ed has been since he was 19 yrs old-can you believe that?!
So you guessed it...another protein day today!
In response to our friends:
Marlene- Hey you! We don't know what's goin on but we'll take it!!! We will absolutely be posting pics, I'm anxious to see the changes too! You never really see it until you compare! The only bad news is my "motivational flame bikini" is too BIG! Guess I'd better find another one! HA!
Mary Mary- Is it the tuna? Beats me! Try all protein, something is working!
Liz- Hey girl! We are very excited (as you can see)! Please join the forum you will learn so much and the people there are the BEST! Now about the vino...yeah, replace your fruit with fruit in a glass! (hee, hee) Like I said just don't go over 500 cals! Works for us!!! If we can have wine every now and then we could stay on this P2 no problem-o!
Some of you have registered in the new forum....YAY, welcome! Ya'll please come on over, I promise you will be glad you did! I put the link at the top left of our blog! You know where to find me if you need any help!!!
Hope ya'll have a great day with great losses!

S: slice of parm cheese with 1 pickle
D: 1/2 can can tuna, 1/2 cottage cheese, 1 glass of wine
3 L water, 2 c tea
Did ya'll hear the yell? I am so excited I can hardly stand it! Do you see on my ticker that the plane has almost landed "in" the treasure box! LOL! Ed is on the green and putting! Ya'll guess what? I'm going to get to 115...and we are having a cyber celebration when I do!!!
So yeah, we are going to do an all protein day again today-why not! If I can keep these daily losses up I'll be at goal by the weekend-is this too good to be true?! I'm almost to the 50 lb loss mark and my body sure is cooperating nicely! We have been invited to another "crawfish boil" this weekend! Can you tell crawfish is a big deal around here? All year we look forward to crawfish season! I swear we could eat them every week-we love those little creatures!!!
Speaking of loving creatures (in response to your comments)-
Dawn- Thanks for celebrating with me! I hope you know how grateful I am for the "other forum" because I found you...you are the BEST! Such a lil devil like me....what can we say, we like our wine (and to have a good time)! You are losing well too my friend-I'm here ALL the way for you! Btw, as you know we have been doing this round forever so I'd say...push through it until you hit your original goal! YOU CAN DO IT! Plus we found the loop hole with the wine!!!
Marrray- Thanks as always! Don't be envious, I hope with this blog we have shown that you don't have to do everything right on. The only thing that needs to be right is our brains and having the determination to do this and don't quit! Mary, you know that you have been such a part of this journey with us and I'll be here for you to celebrate your big moment!!!
Monica- Power Couple.......LOL! Ed even laughed at that one! I need to learn to take compliments huh?! Thanks girl for all your love encouragement and support (always)!
Becca- We'll toast with ya...thanks Becca! Honestly if it was all over today I would consider this round a HUGE SUCCESS! Glad you are back in town, you are part of my daily routine!
I can't tell ya'll enough how much we appreciate you being here every day for us! You have made this round the BEST!
So thanks to Biz we have started a new forum! It is a great place to journal your HCG weight loss experience and it gives people a chance to read and respond instantly (much more active than blogging)! We have the most wonderful people who are joining the forum! There is so much knowledge, experience and encouragement-I encourage ALL of you to join! Here is the website:
Please register and then once you are "accepted" you can then start your journal! If you haven't been a part of a forum before it's a little different but very easy to set up. Trust me, if you can set up and run a blog you can do this! Please don't hesitate to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
It's already Wednesday...YAY! Have a great day friends!

Forget about knocking....WE BARGED THROUGH AND KNOCKED DOWN THE DOOR!!! OMG, I got to 119 and holy moly Ed lost almost 3 lbs! As you can imagine we are both very EXCITED this morning! I actually got back on the scale and it said 118.6 (but it was after I'd been up for an hour) so I figure I'll HAPPILY take 119!
So did ya'll see the menu? I don't know what the deal is but we can drink wine and still lose! We plan on repeating very closely to what we did yesterday! ;)
So our LIW is one week from today and I'm 4 measly pounds away from my goal and Ed is only 7.6 away from his....we are sooooooo close!!! We actually see the light at the end of the tunnel...
Dawn- Hey you! So we tested the theory on drinking more wine and it WORKS! So you know what I've learned on R3? You can drink wine and STILL lose (as long as you stay under 500 cals) we knew there had to be a loop hole!!! Wonder how you’re doing today!
Mary Moe- Back on the losing train! I bet Ms. Crocker will miss you!!! The protein days work great but what works even better is the protein and WINE days...hee, hee! Glad your house didn't blow over (poor pansies)!
Bizanator- Am I spoiled or what? I got a peice of Biz 2 days in a row? What a great surprise! We always have good plans...(can you see me with my two fingers pointing to your eyes and then back at mine)?! What did I ever do without you?????
Liz- Well what's up stranger? We are very excited for Mexico! For the first time in my life I'm actually looking forward to swim suit shopping (I can't believe it)! I need to go check on you today-thanks for stopping by!
Lil- Oh, we wish it was 8 days till Mexico...we are actually leaving on the 15th of April and we will be there for 10 whole days!!! It's always great to see comments from you-it's not fair that everyone just disappeared all at once-we need our blogger buds dammnit!
Okay, well I have a little surprise in store for ya'll! I will be working on it all day and will give you all the details tomorrow-YAY!
Have a GRRRRRRRRREAT day!

Looks like our protein day worked just fine! We are debating if we should do it again today...hmm! I really want to break out of the 120's!!! As each day passes we realize how unimportant food is to us. If you were to tell us we'd be saying that when this all began 7 months ago we would've thought you were crazy! We are totally different people in the way we think about food. Hard to explain but ya'll know what we mean!
So another week is upon us! These 8 days are going to fly! We are going to be booking our final reservations for Mexico this week...we are getting so excited and can't wait to get outta here for 10 days!
So how are our buds doin? In response to your comments:
Oh it's our little Marray! Okay, so maybe the pepper trick wouldn't work for you! LOL! Glad you are done torturing us on your blog and back to boring old P2!
Dawn- Whassup Artic?! Thanks for celebrating my birthday with us...hee, hee! Yeah and like I said it's not too hard for Ed to talk me into a cocktail or 5!
CB- Where ya been? Thanks so much for the info-you are breezing through P3! I know, I want to break out of the 120's...it's so close! Thanks for always checking on us!!!
Monica- Glad you are home safe! Monica, you have got to email me your recipe for sweet potato pie! It was a piece of heaven!!! I'm curious if Nakia started today-I'm on my way to check on ya'll!
What?! Biz?! OMG, is it real? Girl........WE ALL MISS YOU! Thanks so much for your sweet comments. You are where I started and you CAN get to where I am! Sheesh, it's like Ed and I are kind of on diet and mostly at a party! I'd be at goal already if we weren't having so much fun, but who cares?! Love and miss you!
Okay peeps....send us good vibes, get me out of 120!!!!!!!!
Happy Monday (soon enough, it will be Tuesday)!

R3 Release: 20.6
R3 Release: ?
And a good time was had by all!!! Ed "forgot" to weigh in this morning before he had his huge mug of coffee (how conveinent) so his weight is a mystery today! We ended up NOT going to the Rodeo and opted for a day on the water. We had such a great time! We ate lots lots of shrimp and LOTS of crawfish! The best part was DESSERT! Ohhhh goodness, we had the most heavenly slice of sweet potato and pecan pie! Monica has mentioned sweet potato pie and I have never had it! OMG, all I can say is-how have I gone 30 years without having sweet potato pie? We both only had 3 bites and then we put pepper all over it so we wouldn't eat anymore (that's our trick)! I knew I would gain today but who cares?????
We plan on sticking to only proteins today and drinking lots of water! I will break out of the 120's this week!
THANK YOU ALL for the sweet Birthday wishes! If I could I'd wrap you all up in my arms and squeeze you to death (okay, not that hard but close)!!!
Enjoy your day....

R3 Release: 21.6
R3 Release: 21.8
B: coffee w/stevia
L: 3 egg whites
S: 1 apple
D: 4 oz Bison Steak
S: 1 apple
2.5 L water, 1 c tea
(E: Reece’s Whoppers, crackers & dip-the boy can't be trusted at the grocery store!)
YAY, I GOT TO 120 FOR MY 30th BIRTHDAY!!!! I'm not sure if the loss was from my "semi apple day" or that I just didn't lose the day before...WHO CARES, this is a great start to a great day! Ready for this one? When I was in 3rd grade I weighed 90 lbs (I was a little chunk)! Now being 30 I weigh 30 lbs more than I did when I was 9 years old....is that crazy or what?! Today marks my 45 lb loss!!!! Yesterday we went to the store and Ed insisted we go see how much weight we've actually lost. We went to the pet section and Ed started piling up bags of dog food on me to equal 45 lbs-OMG it was soooo heavy, I could barely hold it for 1 minute. To say the least it was very eye opening. I guess it finally hit me yesterday that we have come so far! It sure makes all those times that this Protocol seemed "hard" totally worth it! VICTORY!
So ya'll know I have the best husband, right?! Ed has been dying to give me my birthday gifts all week so this morning as soon as we woke up he started singing to me (awww) and then hurried and got my gifts. I love to see little perfectly wrapped boxes (with baby bows)! I always complain about not having the right chain to go with my necklaces so he bought me 4 different ones....LOL! They are all so beautiful and different. Then when I thought we were done he pulls out another perfect little box! Inside was a beautiful lucky horseshoe diamond necklace!!! This necklace means so much to me because for Christmas he bought me one that was silver and I have loved wearing it every day. I started wearing it the beginning of this round and refer to it as "my lucky weight loss necklace!" I took it off last weekend for one day and then had a stall and claimed it was because I forgot to put my lucky necklace back on! The kicker is, last night Ed was asking me "if you could get anything you really wanted for your birthday what would it be?" I have not hinted that I wanted a diamond horseshoe but last night I said "a diamond horseshoe necklace" well his face totally changed and he started saying "what, I didn't even know that" and "OH NO!" So then I felt bad thinking he would think I wouldn't like what he got me........anyway, the little devil knew all along what I wanted and he had already bought it for me! Isn't that awesome?! I'm so happy! We plan on taking pics today and I will make sure and share them with ya'll tomorrow!
Ed wants to go out today to the Rodeo! It should be fun! We are going to go have crawfish! Ed already gained a pound from all the treats he had at the grocery store! I caught him one time when he didn't know I was watching and he was stuffing Reece’s Whoppers (can you believe they make anything so good and evil?!) into his mouth like a little boy! I can't take him anywhere! LOL
In response to comments:
Becca- OMG, that was the funniest e-card EVER! We need to pass that along to everyone this Friday...ROFL! Thanks again, I love laughing first thing in the morning!
Marrray- Aww, I know you read our blog...and you don't have to comment sweets-we know you love us! So did you see the trick? Somethin' worked!!!
Virtie- Thanks for stopping by! I have added you to my "daily doses" so I'll make sure and check up on ya! Welcome aboard, you'll lose those 25 lbs NO PROBLEM-O!
Monica- I'm going to be as good as possible today so that I don't see a gain tomorrow! It's always very scary when we leave the house.......ahhh, wish us luck! "It's not about the food, it's not about the food" say it with me..."it's not about the food!" LOL
Shelley- Awwwwww, THANK YOU girlfriend!!!!!! It already is a wonderful day (and it's just begun)!
Okay, I guess I need to go get ready for our day! Thanks for all the love my peeps!
Have a great weekend!
