Sunday, vlc11--Same old, same old

Rate this Entry
No gain, no loss this a.m. Always better than a gain. So I should take that with a smile.

It's just that it's difficult to understand how one doesn't lose weight when eating only 500, or in my case, probably close to 600 or 650 calories a day. (My experiment) I think that is what gets people on protocol down. People, meaning, ME.

No sense on dwelling on it, the scales stayed the same, nuff said.

Back to what I was saying, this IS a difficult diet. O, the losses are great, especially at first, but there is essentially no wiggle room. It seems like the desire to munch has come back with a vengenance. Last night, while watching the football game, I was miserable. I wanted to join with DH having chips and salsa. The chocolate macademia carmel clusters in the pantry were SCREAMING my name. I asked him to please either take them to work, eat them, or trash them. I didn't succumb to my urges to "cheat", but I don't know how. I should refer back to times like last night when I want to give in and go off protocol, when I wonder if I have what it takes to keep on track. The urge seemed overwhelming, but I did resist! But, will it ever get easier? I know it does, it gets easier because on the other phases of the protocol u can have snacks, bits of protein, nuts, lots of things, so I just need to focus. This is the time to get it done. Stay focused, stay on task, and get it over with.

The weather, it being cold, gloomy outside--all that may be playing a little havoc with my psyche, my wanting comfort foods so badly.

I just have to tuff'n up somehow. My losses are slower right now and it is playing with my resolve. I do have more "abnormal" fat to lose, I know I do. I have not lost all I need to, and I need to not feel content with my size right now. This is a set point weight, I know it is--I just have to get beyond it. I can do this, I know I can.

    Hang in there Dubbs, your loss might appear tomorrow. I stalled around this time for 6 days. You are doing great! Keep busy and drink teas! That always helped pull me through. After day 14, it will get easier!

    Im sorry Dubbles your posts are always so helpful and heart felt. I was expecting a gain today and it was four ounces. So this week has been a crappy one. I know I have lots of abnormal fat to lose, and I often wonder how one doesnt lose on such a low calorie amount either. Im craving chips and salsa something fierce..

    Aww Dubbs...... poo! I hate that you are having a down day! Hang in there. Sounds like you already know what's up with that previous set point weight. Sit tight. It'll break, you'll get to P3 and P4 and you will RESET IT and it will NEVER be a problem again!!

    Having only gone through one round I still feel your pain. Somehow it just seems to defy logic about the 500 calories and no weight loss....I so agree. The week I stalled the tape measure and my jeans showed changes even though the scale did not.

    Sounds lame but try measuring for a pick me up. I thought of my fat cells filling with water waiting to be sucked out and gone from my body forever!

    u r doing so good! hope I loose 12 pounds on r2.

    ttfn,

    Hi Dubbs! If I were you, (because you sound like I am many times) I would definitely consider an emotional factor and that you're not really hungry. I know, for personal reasons, that's a fact with me sometimes. If you read what I just posted, you'll see I had a crazy day yesterday and gained this morning. Is there a full moon?? This is always a tough time of year for me - very few sunny days and nothing but snow and cloudy skys and cold! Hope you have a better day today!

    Steph, Feisty, Gina, and Joanie, thanks, all of u, for your support. I really don't believe I couldv'e ever stayed on this protocol without the support of these blogs. And I'm serious. My brother and his wife quit after about 3 weeks, but they wouldn't get on the forums and blogs. I kept trying to help them, and get them to, but some don't want to take the time. I appreciate everyone's comments, and I hope I don't ever bring anyone down, when I'm feeling slightly down. Forgive me if I do.! This too shall pass.

    Dubbs, I've only been doing this diet for a week and already I have moments like you're having! This diet is soooo difficult but whenever I start feeling down I think about the way I used to look, all slim and prissy I felt so good then....and I also think about a gorgeous friend of mine who wears the cutest clothes because she's so slim and in shape. I guess I'm a little vain but that's what gets me past wanting to take a bite of no-no food. Hang in there!!

    Hi Dubbles, Make yourself some spinach chips to curb the snack crave. Recipe on YouTube. I'm only on round 1 VLCD day 9, but my losses aren't as much as yours and I have more to lose, so don't feel badly at all. The thing that buoys me as I am reading all these blogs, forums and watching YT, is that when there is a stall day for someone, they seem to have a big release the next day or day after, so it evens out in the long run. It seems to be apattern.
