  1. 2nd week just about down

    Wow, tomorrow I'll have 2 weeks down.

    Earlier in the week I started showing signs of a bladder infection and went to the dr, came up just beginning. I recall last time I was doing the diet having the same issue. I don't usually get these, actually in my whole life I can count on one hand how many times I've had one. In the past, from not drinking enough water. This time not sure. I read through the forum and read many people have had this issue on the diet. Well, even my bff who ...

  2. First week down!

    I was thinking the other day, I have no clue at this point what round I'm on since I first started doing this 4 years ago. In the beginning it was to get my body back and finally be happy. The last couple years they've been maintenance rounds more than anything. I have always kept journals but after this long I don't even know where those notes are.

    I do have all my notes in my computer though from things that have worked for me to things that did not. As well as cycling, which I ...

  3. Vlcd 5

    So far so good. I am down 5.6lbs so far. On my first vlcd I was actually down 1lb after all the loading which is a first for me. I can gain anywhere up to 9lbs loading (this when I do a 3 day load if I do a 40 day round which I have found works better for me). All in all, I only gained 3.5lbs loading.

    I am back to taking my vitamins like I use to while on the diet. But this time I've added in 5HTP. I read that it helps with moods and hunger. Well, I don't get hungry on the hcg, but ...
  4. Happy 4th of July!

    It's been 6 months since I came on last. Time just flies.

    Well, I recently had a breast reduction. It was much needed. I was going to physical therapy, then to acupuncture for bad neck and back pain since the pt just wasn't working and I am not one to take pain meds. So after my last round I gained my weight back bc I was not able to be active from all the pain.

    It has been 3 weeks since my surgery and yesterday at my follow up I got the ok from my surgeon to go on ...

  5. Happy New Year!

    I have been MIA once again since my trip to Italy.

    Let me start by saying Italy was absolutely beautiful, but it rained, a lot, with the loudest thunder I have ever heard!The first 3 days were not so great. When we checked in to LAX, they took forever to check us in, due to this, they had to hold the plane and made me, at the gate, check in my carry on. I wasn't thinking and just handed it over. It had my camera which had all my lenses, etc and my travel meds (in case we got sick ...

  6. Happy Halloween!

    Yesterday I didn't get to check in. But TOM reared its ugly head a couple days early. Which has left me with a stall, a gain and then a loss of the gain, lol.

    So I am pretty much where I was the day prior to TOM. It's expected.

    I've decided that my LID is going to be Saturday, instead of Sunday since I will be leaving around 3:30am that morning for Italy. Since I am cycling, based off my old notes, I would do it for 7 days in the past, but this will allow me at least ...
  7. Vlcd 6 Here

    I can't believe this whole week passed and I am barely blogging now. Such a busy week and this coming week will be even busier, which is good bc I won't have to think about being on this diet as much, lol.

    I find that when time drifts by slowly you think about all the little things you cannot have, like almonds, or a banana. My biggest challenge on this diet is not being able to eat something crunchy and salty. I do have a big salad but it is not the same. I like to keep myself extra ...
  8. I'm here again

    It's been about 10 months since I was here last. Last time I was working on losing 10lbs and I did it. I just celebrated my birthday yesterday. Time sure flies.

    I was recently ill from a sinus infection that went into my lungs. I was put on prednisone and you guessed it, weight on. Not too bad. But either way, I need to lose 15lbs.

    Today is vlcd 1. Just had my 2 loading days and I ate until I felt I couldn't eat anymore. You always worry though if you ate enough to ...

  9. Hi everyone!

    It's been over a year since I last checked in.

    Everything has been great. Last I posted I was taking topamax for my migraines, well, that medication was horrible. Made me lose a lot of my hair (all growing back now thank goodness!), made me very forgetful, I just couldn't think straight so I had enough and stopped taking it. While on it I also lost so much weight it scared me. I went down to 116lbs (I am nearly 5'5" and small framed to begin with) and was worried I'd lose more ...

  10. Long time gone

    But still going strong.

    I have been doing great. I hope everyone else has been as well.

    I have been busy with life. Kids back to school, my oldest is graduating this year so we have been trying to figure out college, etc.

    I lost a few more pounds and I have to say it's bc my doctor finally put me on topamax bc of my extreme ocular migraines. That was about 6 weeks ago. Have not had one since. They were getting out of control. I feel great now. I lost ...
