One thing I have learned is that going off protocol can quickly bring disasterous results and quickly. Secondly I feel so much more better while on protocol and while not deviating. Thirdly water is very important. It helps stave off hunger and helps the HCG do its thing. Like flush the fat out. Amazingly I like life better on protocol. Going one week off of protocol had me gaining the ten pounds I lost on being on round two for two weeks. So after getting my crap together and putting to rest again for another year the grieving of not having my daughter with me. I am ready to get er done :)I cant wait to use my bike. I wish it wasnt raining and snowing.
