  1. R2 p2 vlcd 11

    Well, up .4 lb. this a.m. It's really not going as well as I'd hoped. Since I couldn't weigh the morning after my second loading day I am guesstimating a 2 lb. gain on that day, making my loading additional weight 6 lbs. That would have started me off at 189.8 lbs. After 10 VLCD days I find myself at 181.2 lbs. That's only a loss of 8.6 lbs. Only 2.6 lbs. lower than when I started loading. Not loving those statistics. My first week should have been better than that. Yesterday was problematic because ...

  2. Just checking in! :)

    I haven't been on and posted in awhile. I just wanted to take a minute, check on everyone, and say "Hi".

    I finally gave up on the new drops. After three weeks on the new drops I had only lost three pounds and that was gain some lose some losses. Basically, I had stabilized beautifully while on the drops. LOL Not really the goal, so I just decided to go on to phase three. I've been in Phase three since last thursday and have been doing very well. I even hosted a ...

  3. Down again! (In a good way....)

    After completing 8 vlcd days, I'm down 9 lbs from my starting weight. That's more than 1 lb per day! And I thought the honeymoon was over! I was going to go to the gym last night, but I got caught up watching the Biggest Loser and it was 9 by the time it was over so I didn't go. But, I drank about 1/2 bottle of a protein drink (Ensure Muscle) yesterday, thinking I needed it to work out last night, so I figured I'd stay the same weight or maybe even go up. Imagine my surprise to actually go down! ...

  7. Forgetting the lessons from P2. . . not a great idea

    Today is just about the same: figured out the scale issue, if I need to BM but can't quite first thing in the morning (common for me) I'm 1.8 up, if I don't I'm 1.4 up from LDW. Today was a 1.8er, nuff said . I did add almonds yesterday, and loved them as a quick snack after work when I'm starving, and it could help stop me from doing anything silly and grab some uncooked pasta and start chowing down.

    I also did the L-Carnitine, and maybe I'll try that guy a different time but I ...

  8. Stayed the same...

    So no loss today, stayed at 174.2. My little experiment of Jay Robb protien shake for lunch did not pan out, and then I made chili for dinner.
    All I can say is "Why Chili, Why" when you taste so good an i was a good girl and did not add any onions.
    Well I choose not to blame the chili and am just gonna chalk it up to no BM.

    So today is rainy in San Diego and I am going to make some Barracoa. I got my crock pot ready and am going to drown myself in culinary ...

  10. .1 lbs.......Really???

    OK, so I weighed in this morning at 152.4....... .1 lbs......Grrrr! I ate the 800 calories yesterday, just like my journal said, except I added 1 extra egg and 1 T sour cream to my egg salad last night (an extra 120 calories) because we were out trimming horse hooves all evening and I left dinner until 8:30. I was hungry all day, but I wanted to stick with my ratios, so I otherwise ate exactly what I had planned. I really wanted to see this make a loss, but it was bound to slow down some, so I ...
