  1. VLCD24 - Steady as she goes - or stable as she goes is more like it.

    Stable is good, but I prefer to be stable after having adding in calories and fat, aka in P3. It's OK though. I'm going to continue going strong during this last week of VLCD.

    I saw something I loved today and will share it here. Simple and beautiful:

    To belittle is to be little.

    I just love it.

    XXOO to ALL y'all!
  2. VLCD23 - Life is Good.

    I'm nearing the home stretch of Round 2 and all is well. I had to up my dose several times and I've finally, FINALLY found the cure for my incessant hunger. I'm one of the unusual ones that needed a higher dose. I'm currently at 175 iu and feel happy as a clam. Previously the word "clam" would have me all distracted and dreaming of food. Now I'm focused and ready to finish this round strong. I have hunger pains at meal times, but my hunger is no longer an all-consuming thought vampire. ...
  3. Round 2, Phase 2, VLCD11

    Not the greatest day. I don't want to be a downer or negative, but I want to share my true experience so others out there can learn from me. Feeling rather puny and I'm not sure if it's the VLCDs/hcg taking a toll on me or if I've got a touch of a bug or what, but I'm really looking forward to the end of the day so I can just get in bed and get some sleep. I'm drained.

    Per the advice of some knowledgeable women, I've added magnesium and potassium to my daily routine. It hasn't kicked ...
  4. Round 2, Phase 2, VLCD10

    Oh boy. I'm tired today. I'm tired of dieting too. I wanna eat something off protocol - like a macademia nut or chicken thigh. MUST get my head back in the game. I'm feeling hungry, so I'm thinking of skipping a dose tomorrow, after having upped my dose earlier this week. I have the hardest time getting my stupid dose right. I'm going to go make a hot cuppa green tea and hope that wakes me up and curbs my desire to eat.

    I ate more than 500 calories yesterday but I still netted a ...

    Hello all. I'm down -0.20 pounds today, which is fine with me considering how consistent my losses have ...
  6. Round 2, Phase 2, VLCD 8

    After a hectic weekend of moving, I am exhausted, but happy. I upped my dose of hcg and it has curbed my hunger. I still get hungry before meal time but it's a different hunger and my outlook on life is much rosier.

    I'm down to an even 125.0 today. My body aches from all the heavy lifting but it's a good ache. I miss the feeling of working my muscles and I'm so very much looking forward to the end of this round when I can begin working out and firming up. The new house has unavoidable ...
  7. Round 2, Phase 2, VLCD4

    I'm down to 129.0 today, which means all of my load weight is now gone. 1.6 pounds to go and I'll be back to LIW and then it'll be fun to see real losses. While I hope to see a loss tomorrow, I need to brace myself for little movement or even no loss simply because I've done so well this week.

    I'm still hungry, but I upped my dose slightly this morning and feel better. I'll stay at this dose for a couple of days and see how it goes. Ate some leftover steamed cabbage for brekkie to ...
  8. Round 2, Phase 2, VLCD3

    Down another -2.2 pounds from my loadfest, thankfully.

    I'm jealous that so many people experience the lack of hunger. I WANT THAT. I felt great on VLCD1, then my hunger creeped up a little on VLCD2 and I was quite hungry last night, which continued through this morning and I've already eaten my lunch. I'm downing the water and the hot tea, but I would love to just feel less hungry. FAGE.

    I'm really hoping to be back in the 120s by tomorrow. I haven't eaten my fruit ...
  9. R2/P2/VLCD2 - Trusting the Process

    I'm down 4.5 pounds from my loading weight and on the road to my goal. I'm in a much better place today emotionally. A little stressed over the move and getting a fence built and last minute needs (including prepping for VLCDs during the house transition), but I'll figure it out. Excited to be closer to 130 than 140 today. And grateful. Phew.
  10. Round 2: VLCD 1

    Round 2 Begins

    After a weekend of loading, I am up 10 pounds over my last injection weight and 8 pounds over my weight from last Friday. To say I'm terrified would be an understatement. I'm going to trust the process but I'm a ball of nerves and depressed and maybe even a little psychotic today.

    So far today, I've had a couple mugs of tea, 2/3 c. of coffee and a ton of water. I've gone pee a million times it seems. I've received several compliments about the dress I'm ...
