Down another pound. Currently at 201 hoping to see the 100's towards the end of this week. lost 11 net pounds since starting on the 26th.
One great thing about this protocol is that you learn what your weakness are and what your triggers are. So far I've been able to mentally power through them. My hope is that by learning my triggers it will help me in Phase 3 and 4.
I just gave myself my first injection. It was a surreal moment. I am excited to be doing this, but quite nervous. The strange thing is that I am not worried about VLCD. I am REALLY worried about my ability to keep up with my water intake. I am supposed to drink about a gallon of water per day. HOW DO I DO THAT????
I posted my before pictures, wrote my weight on my calendar and am off to buy my food scale. I have BOG plans to eat out tonight and tomorrow. Saying goodbye to tacos for

VLCD8 was by far the best food day for me. I am not a cook, but I gave in and made my own chicken broth. I can't believe how tastey it came out! I made a chicken and cucumber soup for lunch, which was absolutely delicious. I'm not a cucumber fan, but I'll eat them. Only, with a lack of stuff to eat right now, it's hard for me to get them down. I'm not sure what happened, maybe it was the chicken broth, but the cucumbers tasted so yummy in my soup!
For dinner I made my own marinara,
I was bra shopping today and tried on bra after bra at Lane Bryant. I've shopped there for years. You know it's one of those favorite places to shop for us big beautiful women. After being discouraged because nothing fit right, the clerk measured me and told me my "new" size. I proceeded to look again for bras and told her I couldn't find them. She said honey I shouldn't tell you this, but you need to be shopping at Victoria's Secret. I looked at her like she was an alien or something.
For a late lunch, a wonderful salad of chopped apple, tomato, chicken breast and one chopped green onion. Topped it off with apple cider vinegar dressing made with a tbsp. of yellow mustard, Mrs. Dash Salt Free Herb and onion seasoning.
Another great salad right now, with some crab and raw spinach, seasoned with lots of friendly spices. Then on to an orange.
Mondays are always so busy. I teach a hatha yoga class for seniors in the morning. Then run errands, then work on my torch (I
I had planned on loading this coming weekend. That is out the window since my hcg is back ordered until the 18th. Totally sucks. If I have to be honest, I don't think I'm mentally ready yet. Seems like it really crept up on me. Anxious to get started so I can just get it over with but I know that if my head is not in the game, it will be way too hard. This will be my third round and I have always had an exact game plan that I stuck with. I have never cheated on P2 and I don't plan on it this
This morning was a BIG letdown- I had somehow managed to GAIN a pound! After talking through my day yesterday with a couple of lovely ladies here on the forum, the conclusion we came to was the gain is most likely a temporary side effect of both my sunburn I got on Saturday and the fact that I hadn't properly "gone to the bathroom" as of my weigh in. I was VERY good all day- switched up my proteins and had fish and spinach for lunch and made a tasty mexican-inspired chicken soup with tomatoes
and i am going to behave my ass off! lol until thursday anyway (when i actually get to celebrate). any tips for keeping away from a steak day when imbibing on more than just red wine?
I just found it today....maybe most of you know about it, but there are several yummy-looking 100% P2-friendly meals there. She even has options you can add to make it P3 or P4. Good stuff. Here's the blog: http://phasestoforever.blogspot.com/
