I continue to deliberate on my decision if I will continue on with this first long round or to stop today. Today makes the 35th injection at VLCD40; total loss over the 40 days=21.80#.
While I have two remaining 2000IU vials, I have a few options:
1) extend the round a little; Grammy1952 says I could go 46 or 47 days, but since I need to mix one of the vials, I would end up tossing several injections
2) stop now
- a) for good
- b) to do another round, if needed
I am not at my goal yet... just short by 8.4#. (Now my neuro wanted be down another 13.4# (so we have a 5# difference of opinion, but I feel that her goal weight might be a bit much considering I've always had muscle.) I really hoped I could get to my goal weight with one long round, but indeed that was a thought brought on by ignorance since women only lose an average of .5#/day.
I am concerned another round might mess things up, but that might happen anyway. I won't know until the rest of the protocol is complete. I feel like it has gone well. I don't have the usual bloating/water retention issues with TOM.
Either direction, I know I need to keep pushin' on. So far it feels G- reat ! with what I have lost so far. I can't wait for my family to see me, not to mention Dr. C.
