  1. 1 week down and 11.4 pounds down!

    Okay, so this morning makes one exact week since the beginning of vlcd. I lost another .8 pounds yesterday which gives me a grand total of 11.4 pounds down during week 1! WOOT! I feel much better today and am not woozy as I was the last few days. I think that the potassium has made quite a difference. Also, I must share (WARNING!! TMI COMING!) ............................ that I am NOT having bowel movements. I had one last Monday after the fat gorge of loading days but have not had one since until ...

  2. P3 day 8...red wine is NOT my friend

    I have been indulging in some "finer spirits" over the past few days and have found that I can have 2 very strong vodka drinks, but not red wine. I gained 1.5 pounds today (at exact LDW now). While I love vodka, wine was always my best bud. We had some good times, that's for sure. But I have to cut it loose and move on...no more wine for me Today I mourn...

    Good news is I've pretty much eaten everything under the sun and haven't had issues. I have had all kinds ...

  4. P3 Day 12

    Up a pound this a.m. Probably due to the fact that I had 2 vodkas and diet Zevia cola last night. Rats! My first cheat EVER!

    I was hoping it wouldn't affect anything. Truth is I drank evening cocktails regularly. My friend used to say I had a hollow leg because I could drink quite a bit w/o showing it. I have not touched a drop in over 2 1/2 months until last night. Funny thing is, I would have thought that after such a long hiatus, 2 drinks would have made me quite tipsy. However, ...

  5. R1 / P2 / VLCD 12 - Jay Robb

    I had been reading about Jay Robb protein shakes in the forums and decided to order it. Many people have had good losses on the product and the coffee shakes sounded yummy.

    I made my coffee really strong and mixed in some stevia with a chocolate Jay Robb and ice. Blended to frothy goodness and slurped. The first few swallows were amazing. But somewhere mid-way through I stopped liking it. I downed it quickly and ate my celery with p2 honey mustard.

    I woke to 1.2 pound ...

  6. finally some movement!

    the scale read 132.4 this morning! Hopefully this means I will start getting some regular losses again. I am hoping to be securely into the 120s before I end this round which is still possible if I don't stall out again! I really do think it is because I am reaching the weight ranges that I spent YEARS at. I know it might be a struggle from here on to get where I want to be but I am determined to make it.

  7. Slow Losses again, I found out what not enough protein does to you!

    After an encouraging 1.8 loss on Saturday morning, likely attributed to the Yerba and usual diet, I had a very crazy weekend with slower losses of .6 and .2. I had this meat in the fridge and I really didn't want it to go bad, so I went ahead and reheated the ground beef for lunch one day, and the round steak last night. For some reason, they were both making me sick to my stomach. Not sure if it was my version of the flu Kiddo and Hubby have or just because they didn't smell "good". I ...

  8. P2d24

    Down 1lb this morning. Going now into my 4 week of VLCD. So far to date, I have lost 21 lbs and 3 inches from my waist. Pretty incredible when you think of it. I want to lose another 10 to 12 lbs, so I'll probably stay in phase 2 for another week or two. I'm starting to feel a sense of jealousy coming from friends and family. Odd how that works; I just want to shake them and tell them they can do it too with some determination and following the protocol.

  9. 156.2 or 156.0?

    Either I stalled or I gained .2... I'm not sure.. That darn scale. I weighed four times and received each result twice...Don't know which one to believe. Either way, I'm not happy. Maybe it was the shake? Maybe it was the lack of water until the evening? Maybe it's that pesky TOM lurking around the corner? Who knows, but I'm annoyed.

    I'm not going to do an apple day, I'm going to weight until tomorrow and see what happens. If I do they apple day, it'll only be for ...

    I was way too active yesterday while camping. We hiked and rode bikes. Then of course had to clean up the rv once we were home. I was a bit hungry last night. As you can see it payed off tho! Never expected that! 6.4 in one day? How is that even possible? I thought I would just loose loading weight. Very pleased!
