  1. No Cheats & No Alterations

    Another day gone by. Other than being bored to almost insane, I am doing very well. No cheats & no alterations of the protocol for me. I am following it exactly as it is written, the way it should be followed. I am determined. I can do this, I know I can. I am an all or nothing kinda person.

    My back still hurts. I have watched so many episodes of Breaking Bad, I can spot the bloopers, and what's up with Walt? Why is he always in his underwear?

    I'm going in to work ...

  2. Yes, I cheated

    Hi all, I am relatively new to this diet, but I am doing great and am down 9.6 in 9 days. However today I followed protocol as usual and then all the sudden after lunch I got a huge craving and ate about 35 pretzel thins, 1 tbs peanut butter, and my evening orange. Any ideas on how this will affect me on the scale, I am preparing for the worst and hoping that I will not gain to much but think I will stall....

    Any encouragement from others who maybe cheated or suggestions?? I am ...
  3. Radical flu

    Had a radical flu for the past three days but today I feel great!!!!! Down 25 pounds and 10 inches ( I only measure my hips and stomach) in VCLD 23. I will continue to 28 days then off to P3 BUT I have never done P3 in all the rounds I have done this diet. I don't really know how. So next phase is just watching what I eat and still eliminate carbs...I guess it is just the atkins diet from here on out. Anyway, it was a good round. thanks friends for being around to bounce things off of and ...

  4. Hump Daaaaay!

    Woke up another .7 down. I was kinda shocked to see that, because I feel really bloated. I'll take it!

    I did a quick measurement of my hips, thighs, waist for fun... I've already lost more inches. Since MONDAY. That doesn't even seem possible. I see losing inches quickly around my middle, that shrinks down fairly quickly with a low carb diet. But my thighs? My hips? Impressed!!!!!!!!!!

    Goal for today is to yet again, try and eat early and move around a little afterward. ...

  5. REPEAT OFFENDER & A Promise To Myself

    Like many repeat offenders, I have been losing and gaining all my life. My highest weight was after my first daughter back in 1983, I was a whopping 225. The lowest I have been down to was, gosh I don't even remember when it was - not too long ago, maybe a 1 1/2 years ago. I was a size 8 and 140. That is where I want to be again. I liked myself.

    I work at a gym. If anyone has been in a gym they know that the place is ONE GIANT MIRROR. You couldn't escape a mirror even if you crawled ...

  7. phase 3: gaining weight but inches staying the same

    I just started kickboxing and jiu jitsu and I have gone 7 pounds above LIW. Im really worried about this but I am not really gaining inches. Can I really be gaining THIS much from just starting 2.5 weeks ago?

  8. Can I do another round if I haven't stabilized yet?

    I have done 3 weeks of phase 3 and I want to do another round in about two weeks. (I know that you are technically supposed to wait 8, but I have heard that many do another round after 3 weeks with success). I'm wondering if it is is okay to do this before stabilizing? I have started a new high intensity workout plan which is what I believe is making the stabilization difficult. I appreciate all advise and comments!

  9. Day 8

    Didn't sleep last night. Poor doggie was having seizures again :-( Maybe just a couple hours of shut eye.

    But even with that, I woke up down another 2lbs. I guess the weekend weight came off.

    Today, my goal is to get enough sleep, and to eat more.

    15 more pounds until goal for this round!

  10. VLCD14 - lightest ever, so far.

    Whew, been so busy. Yet, I still hate asparagus.

    Down 1.7 this morning.. which was really only 1.2, since I was up 0.5 after asparagus the other day.

    I'm happy with that - it puts me at 12.4lbs down on VLCD14. Hopefully this trend continues. Usually my body slows WAYYYY down after the first two weeks. And today marks two weeks of VLCD.

    Cross your fingers for me!
