P3R2 Day #18 (173.8, LIW +2.0)

Wow, it's been awhile since I updated! Vacation was fun.... I gained and have been above LIW since I got back (I was more than 2 lbs under when I left). I have been over the 2lb range once since returning, but the next day the scale went back down even without a correction day. I haven't been very good about the no sugar/no starch rule. I am amazed that my weight has been as stable as it has been considering what I have been eating.
I was planning to end my break over the weekend by taking shots Sat and Sun, and then starting the VLCD today, but I was concerned that my HCG might not be potent anymore (I mixed it about 45 days ago, and I have left it out of the fridge for a couple days on accident). I tested it with a pregnancy test and the line was very very faint. I don't want to take a chance that its not working, so I decided to wait until later this week to start. I have HCG but I don't have the bacteriostatic water to mix with yet... I have ordered it and it should come some time this week.
Because I am right at the 2lbs above LIW mark, I am going to stick to P3 foods today and hope that the scale will move down tomorrow.
I am nervous to start another P2, considering how the last one went (cheating all the time!) But I am also so excited at the thought of losing more weight. My goal for the next round is to lose 15 lbs in 23 days. I think if I really focus, and stick to the protocol that it is possible. Then I plan to take a short break and do another 23 day round with a goal of 15 more lbs. If I do that, I will be very close to my goal of 135-140 by the end of September! I need to keep focusing on the goals I want to reach to help me get ready to start again.
