I'm beyond frustrated and need some advice. I just finished a 28 day round. I did the 3 days of the diet without drops and then starting P3 on April 4th. This is my third round but the last two were more than a year ago. I lost 21 pounds this time and my LDW was 151.7. I seem to be steadily gaining every day and I can't figure out why. I did have my period up until Sunday April 5th and I thought that I was holding on to some water weight gain because of that but my period ended 2 days ago so I can't imagine I'm still retaining that water. So here's my daily weigh-in:

LDW - 151.7
Day 1 without drops - 151.9
Day 2 without drops - 152.3
Day 3 without drops - 152.5
P3 Day 1 - 152.3
P3 Day 2 - 152.9
P3 Day 3 - 153.8
P3 Day 4 - 154.4

I'm 2.7 pounds over my LDW.

I followed the instructions for P3 and ate lots of protein (salmon and chicken), small amount of veggies (mostly cauliflower, mushrooms, bell peppers), very little fat (spray for my eggs in the morning and a little olive oil to cook the chicken in) and one cup of whole milk. I only ate one fruit for the first 3 days (an apple). So yesterday I tried cutting out the milk and the fruit. My menu was as follows:

Breakfast: 1 whole egg + 2 egg whites scrambled in a little bit of Pam spray; coffee with 1 Tbsp. heavy cream and stevia

Snack: 2 hard boiled egg whites

Lunch: 8 oz. chicken breast sauteed in a small amount of olive oil with bell peppers and spices

Dinner: Same as lunch

80 oz. of water sweetened with Stevia and a lemon

That's all I had yesterday and I still gained .6 this morning.

One thing I should mention is that I'm constipated - I haven't gone to the bathroom since Saturday and I can feel it - I feel bloated and "heavy".

I would appreciate any advice you can offer - I'm afraid I can't turn this around and I worked too hard to get here!!
