    Wow! I cant believe it's day 17 already! Its pretty slow going this round, i think b/c of my cheat the first weekend. But its still going!

  2. I now have my LIW..

    So I hopped on the scale this morning after yesterdays magic omelet and water like a desert camel only to see my LIW is the same weight as yesterday. Dangit! I was hoping to see 15__. But, really, I've worked so hard and I think my body is just kinda tired. And I've gotten to my original goal of 160. AND.... I'm 100% positive I will see my weight in the 150's as a lasting number when I'm back into weight training anyways. I'm really proud of myself for making it this far.

    For the ...

  3. Winner winner chicken dinner!!

    I'm up 1.5 this morning. I basically ate the same thing yesterday as I did the day before when I lost.. protein/fat/carb/sodium all nearly identical.

    The ONLY real difference is that I had to get up in the night to take that dang cold medicine so I would stop coughing!!!

    That has to be the reason for the gains over the weekend and today's gain, I just don't see any other culprits. I'll have to live with it, because I won't sleep a wink coughing all night long. Hopefully ...

  4. P3 Day 12.....I. HATE. RAIN!

    116.6 was my verdict today. Down 0.4 from yesterday. Up 0.4 from LIW.

    Was able to go to the potty a little yesterday. Not enough though. I am going to the health food store today to get the Natural Calm suggested. I did have a cup of Smooth Move yesterday. It helped a little but I am still bloated.

    I worked at home all day. Did 7 loads of laundry and put away. Unloaded my car from my trip and just put everything in the guest room. At least I got all of the ...

  5. VLCD 38...Stopping Drops Today...A Little Scared!!

    So I've decided today is the day. I'm stopping the drops, going 48 hours on 500 calories and then transitioning to Phase 3. I'm actually 4 pounds away from my goal, but I'm learning it's not really about that *golden number*. I've lost 22.4 pounds and I feel great. I look sooo much better in my clothes. Am I a super model? No. Am I going to wear a bikini this summer? No. But I will wear shorts comfortably and a tank top without being mortified over my arms, maybe even a sundress. Plus, I can start ...

  6. VLCD day 6 AM

    Back on track! Down to 178.8 with a loss of 1.2 lbs. I'm going to try some light walking tonight and see if that prohibits any weight loss. If it does I will just cut out walking altogether.

  7. Day 9 -179 lbs (whew)

    I remained steady after a fall from grace last night.
    I knew I would be eating out but planned.
    I went into a french bistro, asked for a hanger steak, side salad, no oil, very firm about what i wanted. Plus fizzy water w/lime.
    I got the steak, it looked divine but I couldn't chew it! i literally tried for nearly five minutes. Sent it back. Perused the menu, fish all covered in butter.
    I ordered 3 oysters instead. Not horrible right?
    Went to a film (research ...

  8. Last VLCD then p3 - all comments appreciated- thank you for your time

    Well I weighed 108.8 today so I still made me original goal but my liw weight was 110.8 yesterday. That's is fine with me because I still would rather have the range of 110.8-112.8 instead of 108.8-110.8. I have large fluctuations like a pound or 2 during TOM and if I eat too much sodium. Problem is I have a seizure disorder so it can be bad if I get too much sodium or if I lose too much during exercise etc. A doctor told me once if things taste real salty that is your body telling you that ...

  9. Vlcd# 17

    Hidey Ho There Good Neighbors!

    So an interesting thing happened. I had a digital scale that only weighed in .5 lb. increments, so I bought a spiffy new one that does other cool things like give you body fat percentage, bone mass, water percentage and BMI. (How it does all this just from electronic sensors contacting your bare feet I'll never know. And I also don't know what to think of most of the stats either!) Turns out it weighs me in at 2.3 lbs. more than my old scale! Ick! But ...
