  1. VLCD12 Goose egg!

    I got nothing today. No loss but no gain. Probably from my pound cake indiscretion a couple of days ago. I'll take it. At least it didn't go up and I am on protocol again. And if I could freaking "GO" I would probably lose 5 dang lbs right there.
  2. day 2 vlcd 1st weigh in

    Well I am down 3 pounds on my first weigh in I tried to start this in Jan. like I said before and then I messed myself up, cause no poop") I am so scared that I am not gonna be able to do this, that I will mess up like I always do, and not make it to the end. I am hoping writing my feelings about this and writing down my weigh ins, I can do this...I can do all things through Christ

Instead I would make these as shortbread or regular cookies where you plop down a cookie shaped thing on a baking sheet and bake. They are gluten free and sugar free.

    4-4.5 cups almond flour or almond meal
    0.5-1 cup coconut flour

  5. 16 days in and wanted to say how its going.

    Today is day 16 on the protocol and day 14 VLCD. Round 1.

    So far I have lost 12.6 as of this morning. I was really hyped to see the scale at 234.6. I just think last August 2010 I was 244. I and the other nurse that have been on this diet we have everyone wanting to try this diet. But I do remind them its alot of hard work -staying motivated and strict.

    I weighing between 245-250 talking about doing this and the other nurse weighed 137 -co-workers have seen the wide ...

    Today was such a rough day on me, I was starving all day and about 4 pm got a killer headache. By 10 pm I was so hungry I thought I was going to raid the fridge.

  7. Mind over Mistake

    Good Evening,

    I am learning everyday on this protocol. VLCD4 started with a release of exactly 4lbs! I went from 182.8 to 178.8, insert happy feet here
    As I sipped on morning tea, I made a few mistakes. Unbeknown to me, my son had sweeten the pot with honey I assumed it was my 2 packs Stevia in the Raw.
    First off, all stevia is not equal. Stevia in the Raw contains dextrose. That is 2 mistakes in one day.
    Tomorrow the scale may reveal if Mind Over Matter ...

  8. Ooh, a blog!?

    I didn't know there was a blog attached to my forum account! SO great.

    I have had an interesting journey on hcg so far...
    Loaded 2 days
    VLCD 21 days
    Total Lose: 12 pounds

    I didn't cheat but, I didn't weigh my foods either. I Have since bought a scale in preparation to do additional days on P2. I can now say that I was probably eating about 50% more in the protein department.

    I decided last week to transition back into P2 after 11 ...

  10. VLCD day 6 PM

    Today was a good day. I went to the gym and walked for 30 minutes, then sat in the sauna for 10. I drank close to 40 oz. whilst there. Made chicken apple salad for lunch and chili for dinner. Now just drinking some water. I feel full, I haven't felt this way since loading! Looking forward to getting on the scale tomorrow morning!
