  1. Thoughts and Rambles

    I've noticed that I'm really not interested in food. Last round, I thought about nothing else. I will have flashes of, "ooooh those triscuits look good", but it fades almost as quickly as it comes. Last round it was torture. I could barely watch TV, seeing people eat dinner or commercials about food made me so "mentally" hungry. But- I'm not interested.

    Theory 1, is that because I've cut out food, I'm in ketosis. I've done ketogenic diets before and rather like ...

  4. Back for Round 4

    I managed to lose 10lbs during my R3. I struggled with that round and seemed to lose the same 10lbs over and over again. Now that the holidays and a few months of stability are over, its time to start again. Embarrassingly, I gained back all of my losses during R3.

    I am struggling getting started this round. I started and then had to take a break bc of travel to the in-laws. Now I am just getting back to it. My goal is to get back to my final P3 weight with this round. As ...

  6. Week 1 Complete

    The weekend went pretty well. I'm down from 201 to 192. 9lbs! I would really like to get down to 175 during this. I'm really tall and athletically built, so that isn't a bad weight for me. Not goal, but a weight where I can wear most of my clothes. It's what I weighed when I got married! I look back at honeymoon pictures and I looked really good. I was more muscular then, though. But we can work on that...

    I busted my butt around the house this weekend, and I'm sore and feel puffy. ...

  7. P2 Blahs = Recipe Reading & Kitchen Shopping

    It may sound a little strange, but... I get so, so much enjoyment out of grocery shopping and spending time in the kitchen cooking up new, fun things.

    Once I get into P2 (like now, 12 days in), I'm so bored in the kitchen I could just croak. It really kills me. Yes, I can still cook, but there are only so many ways to cook X amount of foods. I don't switch it up a lot because I know what works for me in P2 and I actually prefer things a little more plain during this phase (plus ...
  8. Ice cream :)

    Today I am on day 6, I am down 8 lbs!

    So far I haven't had any trouble with food cravings or hunger, but last night....
    I went to a friends birthday party. There was pizza
    But they also made an "ice cream bar." It was a cute idea, different ice creams to chose from, they even had ice creams for the lactose intolerant and a whole bunch of toppings. I kept myself in the corner with two of my friends who have Celiacs ( I know they wouldn't try to talk me ...

  9. A Second Quest - VLCW2 Complete

    Dismal - that is how I will describe my week 2 results. Down only 1 pound. WTF? Very discouraged. Did I cheat? Yes with 1T of peanut butter. Seriously. I am stuck at the same weight I got stuck on in my previous round.

    I am currently on VLCD 18 and I am only down 6.6 pounds total. The weight is not moving. I am down one pound so far in this week 3, so maybe the next 3 days will see me increase losses. I am going to Vegas in a few days and will have a planned interruption. ...

  10. Injections vs. drops

    About two years ago, I used hcg drops ( may have been homeopathic) and lost 20 pounds and have managed to keep most of it off. I am in need of a hip replacement and unable to exercise the ways I enjoy ( walking, bike riding) and started gaining a few pounds. I am now going to try the injections. My hesitation is in giving myself the injection :-/ Not sure I can do this. Did anyone else have a problem with injecting themselves? And, if so, how did you get past it. The doctor agreed to inject ...
