VLCD29: Dragging Myself Along

Rate this Entry
Not every round will be alike. You know that, I know that, we all know that. Sometimes it's a hard thing to keep in mind. Just because you've had a bad round doesn't mean your next round will be bad too. And just because you've had good rounds doesn't mean your next round might not be a difficult one.

Unfortunately, I've been experiencing that. This round hasn't been a complete bust - I have lost. Sadly, I'm only 8lbs below my LIW from my round that ended in November. Of course, I'm not a big fan of that. For the current round, I'm down 16.1lbs from my load weight. I suppose I shouldn't complain. I don't think I'll make the typical 20lbs I normally lose in a round this time, though.

I know rounds oftentimes get more difficult the closer you get to your goal. Aside from that, I'm not sure what else has been different about this one. With only a few VLCDs left after today (9 injections), I'm not hopeful for much more progress. The last week or so is historically my worst anyway. Mentally, I'm not broken. I do want to stick out the 40 days to see where it lands me, even though I've literally been dreaming about HWC in my coffee. It will come soon enough. That said, I will be glad/relieved to end this round. As I've mentioned, it's made me rethink doing a final round. I will not reach my ultimate goal this round but I'm not sure I'll do a final round like I'd initially planned. Maybe I'll try FMD in P4. Maybe I'll try busting my *** at the gym. I don't know. Sort of at a mental stand still at the moment.

I've lost 3lbs since Feb 1. I'm not sure if that's encouraging or a bummer. Bah.

    You are strong!!!!! I am already cutting my 40 day round short and feel like cutting it even shorter. This round has been my hardest as well just emotionally mainly. I don't think I'm going to do another round as well. I feel like u and I are on the same ride. It will. E over soon. Hang in there.

    The numbers from the scale do not always motivate me... are your measurements showing better progress? I know that for me, regardless of what the scale tells me, slipping into the next size down is proof enough for me that I have been successful! Hang in!

    Thanks. I don't think there's any shame in cutting your round short if it's what's best for you. It can definitely be an emotional rollercoaster... and when it get's to a certain point, it's not worth the stress any more. Besides, they say stress impacts our losses! I'm hanging in there for now. Best of luck to you as you transition to P3!

    I haven't measured in the past week or so. The measurements in this round haven't been overly encouraging. They're going down little by little, which is definitely a plus, but noticeably enough that it makes my day. Once I slip down into another size again, regardless of the number of the scale, I'm sure I'll have another wave of delight come over me!
