  1. I drink so much water that I may float away.

    I drank a liter of water on the way to work today... and I only have a 20 minute drive. Then I drank 3 more liters while I was at work.... and I've been drinking big glasses of water tonight while working on stuff here at the computer. At what point do I need to be worried that I am going to float down the river? It's just that I've been hungry today for some reason. I don't know if I need to adjust my dose? Of if the TOM hormones are just messing with me. It's all so very confusing.

  2. Even hot dogs are starting to be tempting. Hot dogs? Yuck.

    Had a 1.4# loss overnight. Yay! I am really hoping to lose 30# on this round, and it is looking very do-able. I just hope that my lack of sleep the last 2 days isn't going to mess things up too badly. I went to bed too late last night, and the workers (for our new porch) showed up this morning at 7am and started sawing and hammering away. Ugh. (But the porch looks awesome!)

    Yesterday was tough though. Our church hosted a pine wood derby for the children -- and they were serving ...

  3. Only 1/2 way done with Phase 2? Are you kidding me???

    by , April 28th, 2011 at 08:27 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    I haven't really been paying that close of attention to the calendar. I know that I am done with injections on May 17th... but I have never really kept a running tally in my head... I am only 1/2 way done! I am wondering how it can seem like there is too much time left and yet not enough time all at once? I would really like to be done with the extreme restrictions of Phase 2.. but since I still have around 19 full days of this phase left, I have plenty of losing potential left too. I want to ...

  4. My first real cheat day. Eating with family is tough!

    by , April 24th, 2011 at 07:25 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    I had such high aspirations when I left my house today to go down to the farm. I was going to allow myself to eat a portion of roast beef the size of a deck of playing cards -- and 1 cup of the steamed zucchini that I brought as my contribution to Easter dinner. I should have known better. I should have known that allowing myself to have one thing off protocol (the roast beef) would lead to eating other things off protocol. Before I could talk some sense into myself -- I had decided to let myself ...

  5. Looking forward to P3 - I want to mix my vegetables!

    by , April 23rd, 2011 at 10:28 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    I made myself a steak in the oven today. I put it on some foil with 1 cup of onions, garlic powder, pepper and a little salt -- folded the foil all up into a pouch and baked it for 45 minutes @ 400 degrees. I have no idea what I was doing -- and the steak came out a little tough and chewy at the same time... but tasted good anyhow. But the steak I made for my sister also had celery, cabbage, and a few potatoes in addition to the onions. And it got me to thinking... I can' t wait to be able to ...

  6. Hot diggity dog!

    by , April 23rd, 2011 at 09:02 AM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    I lost 2.2 pounds since yesterday. This is some sort of miracle.

    I am so glad... because this loss is just the catalyst that I need to get through Easter dinner at my Mom's house tomorrow.

    Now -- off to our church wide Easter egg hunt.... luckily the hot dogs they will be serving won't be too hard to resist.

  7. I messed up...

    by , April 21st, 2011 at 08:24 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    I didn't measure my watermelon. I just started eating it.

    I bought a small personal watermelon at the grocery store last night... and after my grilled tilapia and steamed cabbage -- I decided to have some watermelon for my fruit. My summary of "allowable foods" that I got from my doctor says that I can have 2 cups of watermelon... and I was just sure that there was no way that there was more than 2 cups of fruit in one half of that tiny watermelon -- but as I got done ...

  8. Upping my dose...

    by , April 19th, 2011 at 08:51 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    I talked to my counselor today about the nausea... and how hungry I have been -- and the doctor wants me to take my dose up to 13.5 units per day instead of 12.5. I am still learning all of the ins-and-outs of this program... so it will be interesting to see what (if anything) this changes.

    Today was not the best... I did have a 1 pound loss... but with the 0.6 pound gain over the last 2 days -- I am really only down an additional 0.4 pound. Then I had to go into work for a few ...

  9. Nausea at meal times. =(

    by , April 17th, 2011 at 09:17 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    Today I had a feeling of nausea at lunch and supper. I know that this is part of the deal... and I am doing my best to work past it. I never thought that I would have a hard time making sure that I reached 500 calories per day... but today I only made it to 492 calories (and that's if I actually ate everything on my plate - which I know that I didn't).

    I just finished my 10th day on Phase 2 - and it's nice to know that I'm 1/4th of the way through the 40 days. Today was rough -
