Thanks everyone! It is great to see the NSV and the lbs lost for all of you, it truly does help to keep motivated.

I am so bummed and I really shouldn't be hopping on the scale every two hours but I am desperate to see it move more than 2 oz! It isn't my TOM either and I am getting the sea salt in and all the water... I am hoping that its my scale but somehow I don't think so I hope the weight finally decides to budge... maybe we need additional snacks. Right now i'm just doing 3 IP packets and one meal but I have been told that you can up the packets to 4 and a scares me to eat that much ironically!

The scale usually is very nice to me the week after TOM too, so it's something to look forward to. Nice work on not cheating! Keep it up!

Hey Ladies!

Yes, I get RAVENOUSLY hungry at weird times. USUALLY it is related to my TOM coming. Occasionally, I ate something that had a sugar, starch, or sugar alcohol or citric acid and didn't realize it. Like when someone else tells me the cooked a perfect on plan meal for me . It goes away pretty quickly. Once I did it to myself with too many higher carb veggies. Another time with too much lemon juice. A third time was when I tried to use fennel. I also had some WEIRD span of time where, from week 12 to week 15 I was JUST HUNGRY!!.

Yes, I don't lose as much as I use to either. I frequently see between 1 and 2.5 pounds. I have had many weeks of no loss at all and a few weeks where I actually gained a couples of ounces.

For me, my TOM is crazy. On average it starts every 23 days now (sometimes 21 others 28 and I might spot for 3 to 5 days too) Then I go for up to 10 days. I can't wait to be done just so I can see my body cyclesgo back to normal.

I barely lose anything just before TOM. Gain during. LOSE between 3 and 6 the week after. I average 12 or so a month.

You have to choose - eat how you want to look, or look how you want to eat...
