I've been losing very slowly the last two weeks. Last night I took an Arbonne Detox Bath and I lost 2.5 lbs today!! I was getting awfully frustrated there but I have to say I was cheating ever so slightly also so I am the only one to blame. I also went to Walmart and replaced all my personal products with oil free products. Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash, deodorant, and lotion. I was so excited about the lotion because I haven't used any since I started and my skin was sooooo dry. I bought some
So, after my awesome 2 pound loss yesterday, I had a 2 pound gain today! Are you serious?!?!?! I had the Jay Robb shakes 2 days in a row which is the only thing I can think of. Other than that it was clean eating for me. I also feel super bloated today, don't know why. So instead of stopping drops Monday, I think I am going to hold off a couple days to try to lose those 2 pounds. I can only stay on them 2-3 more days though...but hopefully that's enough.
Question...I know people
Down 1.2lbs this morning. I ate totally clean yesterday except maybe a little extra protein. It's getting easier and easier as the days go by. The only real problem is working around social events. By blood pressure is doing great, 112/71 and I haven't had any BP meds in over a week!
Ok, I'm pretty much done for the day.
Breakfast: one egg, four pieces of bacon (nibbled on for hours)
Lunch: cottage cheese, 1/4 avocado, 2 tbsp of pate, roasted cashews
Snack: greek yogurt with 2 strawberries and a banana (gonna miss bananas!)
Dinner: eggs and cheese (turned me off so a few bites only), cottage cheese, 1/2 avocado
Snack: greek yogurt with a the tiniest bite of cheese cake (after waiting all day for the cheese cake I discovered that my
Wow I woke up this am to a 2lb loss
started at 154.4 now 152.2 - it's a start! At least I know it works and that's enough to keep me focused...one day at a time!
so im sick. like full blown hacking up a lung, sore throat, runny nose sick. i HATE being sick. last year i caught something essentially at the end of every month, including four bouts of bronchitis, one stomach flu and strep. my doctor finally put me on allergy medication which seemed to help from about jan. til now, but you know, with the seasons changing i guess i cant help but catch something. im certainly due.
anyway, usually my doctor (whos awesome and has an amazing memory btw) understands
I woke up this morning at 6am with the worst cramps I have ever had. No, its not my TOM...It was the aloe laxative I too. I"m not a "regular" girl so I was prescribed those to help out...NEVER AGAIN!!! I've heard some things about the Smooth Move Tea, but I don't want any more pain... To top it off, I got on the scale and saw that my weight was the same as yesterday although I had drank 8 bottles of water (17 oz each for a total of 136oz or more than one gallon). I had to "go"
Bugger! Gained .1 overnight - I think maybe cause I didn't drink enough water yesterday.
And I had to attend a day long workshop today where they had a barbeque that smelt awesome ! and I sat there and ate my chicken and cucumber with acv and mustard dressing.....and planned my escape in 11 days into P3 and all that means
I will try and pump more water in before I go to bed tonight, so I guess that means a lot of sleep-walking visits to the bathroom.
It's been slowgoing, but I finally stopped my stall (punishment for a few cheats), and have lost 12.6 pounds! I don't even remember when I've been down more than 10 lbs. The last year I've struggled to pass a 5lb loss before starting this diet, and now I find myself down 12.6lbs in about 2 weeks. I can't complain.
I am on R1P2VLCD16 and even though it's not the 1lb/day weightloss - I will take it, and keep going. My goal is 30lbs for my 40 days in P2. Slowly but surely I can feel

So here are some of my thoughts recently. Actually lessons ive learned from listening to these amazing podcasts!!!!!!
***Just for today. TELL YOURSELF, "JUST for today." You cant do anything about yesterday, and you cant do anything about tomorrow yet, so just concentrate on TODAY! It's all you can do! And the present moment is ALL we have. RIGHT now!
I want to free myself from all those people who have had such control over me these
