  1. Vlcd 28: 186.2

    I ate portions of protein over 100 grams (about 120) and a delish red leaf lettuce salad -- a lot more than a cup for both lunch and dinner. Went to Penzey's spices yesterday and got some great spices for my salads. I think in future I am going to really use a lot of spices, to replace fattier dressings.
    Got a great mixed spice that is actually CRUNCHY, and that takes away my cravings for croutons.

    My goal weight is 180 and I started this thing in early February. I am getting ...

  2. Vlcd 27: 187.8

    It's actually more like day 35 for me as I had a few cheats. But I am still getting to my goal of 180 (or maybe even a bit into the 170s).

    I am SO happy!

  3. Vlcd: 26 189.2!!!

    Yay! In the 180s! Everyone at work is complimenting me, saying how good I look!

    I have lost a total of 20 pounds so far!!!! Truth be told, I am probably already at Day 40 or close to it, but because I had two bad cheats it took me a while to get into the 180s.

    My goal is 180 so 9 pounds to go, but I am actually getting greedy to be in the 170s. My height is 5' 7". I am watching the biggest loser on TV and it is very inspiring. But even when the gals get into the ...

  4. Vlcd:24 192.6!!!!

    Dear Friends,

    I had to take myself off the board for a while. Truth be told, I didn't know if I could continue this diet! I plateau-ed at 197 AND 195. I was 195 forever. I cheated big time one day and only gained a pound, but I thought that maybe I would try dieting with just low calories and exercise. So I did the exercise and my weight did not budge. Then yesterday I went back on my hcg diet, and here I am -- looking the 180s straight in the face!

    Yesterday I had ...

  5. VLCD 21: 194.4! TOOK A NAP, LOST ANOTHER POUND! (Thank you for your kind comments!)

    Dear Friends,

    Thank you for your nice comments. They mean the world to me! Looks like TOM is winding down, and off come the pounds. That's 15 pounds in 20 days. On my way! 180s here I come. No need to comment again -- once a day is wonderful!

    Sincerely

  6. Vlcd 21: 195.2!!!! Break through!!!! Congratulatory comments welcome and appreciated!

    Dear Friends,

    Here I am, half way through my 40-day cycle and halfway towards my goal of 180! Started at 209. Lost 14 pounds in 20 days, another 15 to go! I will make it!

    It is still TOM for me. Yesterday, I decided that in order to break through the last two weeks of bloat and stagnation, I had to give my body all the water it was craving and retaining. So I drank a lot. Peed a lot, but woke up thirsty. That is how much water my body retains during TOM.

  7. Vlcd 20: 196.6 stalled because of tom.

    My resolution is still strong, and I know what this is all about.

    I tend to retain up to 5 pounds in water weight. The bloating and water retention starts at least a week before the official start of TOM, and then TOM itself continues for at least 5 days. Only after two days of heavy flow (sorry!) does the bloat go away.

    I am saying this because I myself have been wondering what the heck is going on. TOM is not yet over -- when it is, I will hit my 195 mark and continue ...

  8. VLCD 19: Reason for my stall -- TOM! (Sorry guys - but have to discuss this!)

    Hi,

    I surely don't want to offend anyone, but I think this is rather important!

    Started TOM today -- can hardly believe it, because no cramps, no bloating, no indication that it was coming. Also, unusual, a 32 day cycle. Since I turned about 48 (I am now 51), my cycle shortened to 26 days. Now it's lengthening to when I was back in my 20s!

    This makes me believe that the female hormone in HCG is actually GOOD for us perimenopausal ladies. I remember feeling ...

  9. Vlcd 19: 196.6!!!! Breakthrough

    Hello,

    Finally at 196! This is very motivating. I so wanted to cheat last night because I felt like I was not going to lose more weight.

    It's coming off more slowly but I will take it.

    Wanted to share that I started at 209 on HCG (13 pounds lost!) but my original weight loss journey started in December 2011 -- about one year 4 months ago. I was 224 then. My doctor was pretty mad at me, and I was mad at myself.

    I am going in for a well ...

  10. Vlcd 18: 197

    Okay. I stayed on protocol. I did the right things. I even exercised.

    Same weight. NOT HAPPY. (Sticking with it, though).

    Did I mention that I am not happy about this?

    Hopefully tomorrow may bring better results. Too grouchy to talk today.
