  1. R2 P2 VLCD 19 - What's Up Lately

    It's been a while, so here's a review of my stats and what I've been doing.
    I weigh only once in the mornings, so my weight reflects what i did the day before:
    VLCD 16 - 178 - (-.4) Did awalk-a-thon the day before, pretty sore this day. Ate POP (Perfectly On Protocol)
    VLCD 17 - 177.6 - (-.4) Still a bit sore, ate POP.
    VLCD 18 - 177.4 - (-.2) Expected more than this. Have been eating 3.5 oz. steak for one of my meals for a couple of days because Costco no longer carries ...

    "γνῶθι σεαυτόν"
    "Know Thyself"

    I think it is possible to want something too much.
    To want something to such and extreme that you cannot recognize it when it is with the sphere of your grasp.
    To hold on to your image of the desire that you cannot see its true form.

    I have known for a while that the archer must ...

  4. R3p2d39

    195.5...(-.25) Honestly, the only thing that keeps me sane on such puny losses, is the fact that I feel smaller today. For a split second I thought about not injecting this morning so I could be in P3 by Sunday. Before I could talk myself out of it, I injected. I am not a quitter, regardless of the scale. Quitting is what got me to where I am. I will do my part and finish what I committed to. One week from today I will be enjoying my P3 foods, so it's soon enough. I have already started ...

  5. R2 VLCD#20 Down 1.5 overnight. Must be I scared the fat off w/ hissy fit. lol

    Feeling better today seeing a loss on the scales this morning. Sorry for yesterday's rant, diet mentality took over. I just want this to be over with. Dieting gets so old but then again so do muffin tops, baggy sweaters and flying squirrel arms. Like someone's tag line on here says, "Dieting is hard but being fat is harder".

    I certainly didn't blow up to 200 pounds overnight so it only stands to reason it won't melt off overnight either. But it sure was more fun ...

  6. Feeling better today - a new weapon in the arsenal!

    After my meltdown last night, I woke up feeling better and feeling like I have won a hard-fought battle. I didn't cheat! Now I know if it's later at night, I have the option of just going to bed and getting some sleep - that seemed to help! My prayers were answered - I lost 1 lb. from yesterday, and am .6 lbs less than the other day - obliterating that little blip of a weight gain! It's amazing how upset one can get over these things! I am kinda embarassed over my little temper tantrum last ...

  7. Phase 3, Day 5 -- I can't believe how long it takes to get food ready ahead of time.

    Seriously... I cannot believe how much time I am spending in the kitchen these days. You would think that back when I was eating constantly (thus ballooning to nearly 280 pounds) -- I would have been spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Nope -- nothing compared with the amount of time I spend in there now.

    Today I cooked another batch of my awesome Mexican Chicken Soup (click link for recipe)... and then I froze a lot of extra food for later use. Some of it I had to freeze ...

  8. Count down to cheese. R2P3 begins tomorrow in T-11.5 hours.

    Back to the blogging! P3 begins again tomorrow! Apparently I've blurred P3 and P4 with some items during my recent shopping expidition hehe. Wishful thinking. SO what's on the menu for tomorrow?? Well it totally depends on the scale, honestly. So far I have a cushion of 2.9 lbs before a correction day, and I'm due for TOM in a few days. I'm hoping that tomorrow reflects a loss so I don't have a mini melt down

    OK boys and girls! Wish me a good P3!


    R1 start: ...

  10. P3 safe shrimp pasta Alfredo and it was yummy!

    I just had almond meal coated fried shrimp, with shiritaki noodles, and home made Alfredo sauce. The Sauce is safe because it doesn't use a rue so no flour and no preservatives,was supper easy and restaurant tasty. I both boiled and fried the shiritaki after rinsing it for quite some time. This was the actual shiritaki not the tofu version (picked it up at my local H-Mart), so the tofu probably wouldn't take as much preparation. Even though it was a bit chewier than a normal noodle it was quite ...
