  1. 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. ...
  2. 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 ...
  3. Down another pound and skipping shot today.

    I have not had any fruit since friday and its been hard. I started the Tom yesterday and felt so weak and sick I didn't leave the couch. I am thinking of doing a half a grapefruit today. I want to switch it up so my body is like what. Bmi hoping it will help me loose. Fingers crossed. 23 pounds left to go.
  4. Screw you, asparagus.

    VLCD 12, gained 0.5. Had asparagus yesterday, which I don't normally do. Won't be doing that again.

    Absolutely fuming.

    Will relax soon.

    Screw you, asparagus. Screw you so hard.
  5. P2 vcld 9

    Finally had a good loss in a day 2 lbs!!! Maybe I am finally on track. This has been a very unusual round and think I am going to give a brief synopsis 10 days.

    Day 1. Weighed after 2 load days and lost 4 lbs. what happened? I ate big cheese burger, fryes and a large blizzard both days and much more. I weighed 2-3 times that morning????

    Day3-4 Good, but no great loss.

    Days 5-6 brillent idea, I hired the chef that was recommended by the clinic ...
  6. Blabber Mouth

    I have almost been on the diet for two weeks and it has gone pretty good. I had a slip-up during the first week I think which caused me to stall. However I kept going and realized that the small cheat was nothing more than a defeat. Anyways I have noticed small things like my clothes that were über tight are saggy now...I have released about 11pds in 12 days. I feel great and can't wait for the next 28 days to be over I also don't consume a gallon of water a day. I think I drink one cup why of ...
  7. Wahoo!!! *Doing the happy grapefruit dance*

    Happy day!! Happy day!! Happy day!!!

    In each of my other rounds, both grapefruit and oranges seemed to stall me out. Which leaves me THRILLED to report that today, a day after incorporating grapefruit into this round, I'm down 1.2lbs. Hurrah!!!! I'm seriously thrilled to death. It's the little things, people.

    So, today's new foray will be into asparagus. Not something that stalled me before, but something I never make on P2 because I generally only like it grilled ...
  8. Feeling great tonight. Still VLCD 10, added grapefruit.

    Today has been the best day of the round so far, physically speaking. I normally have an apple twice a day. I had a hankering for grapefruit today, so I switched out my afternoon apple for half a grapefruit. It was DELICIOUS.

    Aside from that, everything else today has been the same as every other day food-wise. I feel really good, actually lighter than yesterday, but I felt that way yesterday and woke up today to a gain.

    Looking forward to some variety tomorrow. ...
  9. VLCday 23...20 days to go-Oh My.

    I just took a minute and did the math 20 days to go, thats a lot of days yet. For some reason I was feeling like I was close to the end
    I think my problem is that I am very board with my food. This round I have only had tomatoes once and my first round I ate tomatoes just about every day. I read that most people have troubles with tomatoes and more trouble with combining tomatoes and beef so I decided I wanted the best round I could have and I should stop eating them. I might try ...
  10. LCD Day 5

    Gooooooooooood Morning!

    Yesterday I tried to do things a little bit different. I had probably half a Jay Robb egg white shake (really just to try it) in the morning, for lunch I had lean ground beef with spinach, and for dinner I was at my sister's house where she had made steak fajitas. I just ate the steak, and a couple slivers of onion. I had no fruit! Yay Sarah! It's not that I think fruit is bad- I just don't want to rely on it for a sweet tooth situation. I don't think I need ...
