Today very hard..... I'm hungry! Day 2 VLC. Good news I was down 3lbs. I sure hope this gets a little easier. Not sure about all the correct tems to use, so please bear with me.
OH goodness! I have been so frustrated up until a few days ago. Last Friday I went out for a friend's graduation and ended up having a few vodka and waters thinking I could "get by" with drinking. Turns out (like everyone else has said) that this isn't the case. I ended up gaining five pounds and could not get back down for days after.
Finally, I have started to go down again. Officially have lost 31 lbs!!! I technically started over (loading and all) because I ran out
First magazine has an article about the vitamin/mineral/supplement capsacein. It affects fat by making brown fat self destruct and makes white fat turn into brown fat. You can either eat spicy foods to get it or take a capsule or liquid. If u want a weight loss boost go get the magazine and read about it. There's way too much info for me to write it all here and explain it properly. Just wanted to pass on the fyi.
Not really counting the days anymore! I might start a countdown until Round2 though! My hubby still wants to do another round this fall, and I want to join him. I feel like it has been really good for my body to be eating a variety of foods again, before doing Round2. I don't know how people do the rounds back to back!
My hubby and I had a day-date up to the wineries.....we ate out, small portions, enjoyed some wine and shopping. I didn't weigh myself since I"ve stayed solid
Hi everyone, today has been so horrible, I didn't lose weight, I had a 0.7 gain, I feel so nauseous I couldn't eat my Apple, I had alittle pice of chicken and still felt terrible my hands and feet are freezing and numb fingers. It's scary luckily my moms here watching the baby, shes blaming the hcg diet, and says I'm getting low blood sugar, have any of you guys had this episode. I had to drink some Apple juice and clamato to help with the way I felt. I'm alittle better but I'm still spooked from
Weigh in: 123.4
The Good: I was able to do my long run (4 miles) this morning with no problems (this is probably due to "the bad" -- see below)
The Bad: I haven't lost anything since yesterday; this could be because I sampled my kid's spinach pasta (hey, I'm Italian, I make a good gravy!), *and* I totally caved and had a cappucino-cup full of mint choc.chip ice cream... feel guilty...
The Ugly: I think I might lose something
Well now that I eat more red meat and protein gout has invaded my hands! OMG it's not nice. Apparently another side affect from a low carb diet. Since doing hcg and loosing 30 pounds I do not eat a lot of carbs and have definitely increased the amount of protein I used to eat.
Note to others please keep your water intake up and continue to eat lots of fresh greens and fresh fruits to avoid this happening to you. Sour cherry juice is helping and I've tripled my water intake again
Last night a friend from out of town came in... Bottom line I ate a billion Cheezits, trail mix (no choc), a glass of milk, and two green apple Smirnoffs. Cheat much Steph? Lol. Oh well it was fun. And we stopped nd bought scratchoffs and I won $500!!! So awesome, that helps alot with the moving costs next week.
So .8 gain this morning. Totally worth it.
Happy 4th weekend everyone

Total Lost: 19.6
Looked at my log again, and misjudged my starting weight. So I only have .4 pounds to go until I reach 20 pounds, HOORAY!
Hope it's tomorrow, then I can order my rewards. (Although I might order them today, so they'll get here on Tuesday due to the Holiday...)
I was pretty worried about yesterday. I decided to do a P2 Fage day, even though a few weeks ago I was sensitive

I hardly ate anything yesterday; just 1 apple and 1 bite of shrimp and lettce. This has been a very stressful week. Mom was hospitalized and had 3 days of blood transfusions; I had a run-in with the evil HR woman at work which escalated to a closed-door meeting with her and my boss -- the owner; and I have been studying for a Finite Math exam I am
