I am on day 12 of vlcd and I am using the oral drops. As of this morning I am at 11.6 lbs lost. I have been really sick the last couple of days but I am still sticking to the diet, I just am not moving around as much as I normally do. So the last 2 days I have only lost .8 lbs each day. Could this be because I am sick? I really don't want to fall to far behind the lb a day average this early in the diet because I know that later on most people drop to about .5 lbs a day. I am a 31 year old female, no where near TOM. I started at 246.6 and today I am 235. I am just going to hang in there, but I am a little discouraged.
