  1. Cheating. What's the point?

    I know I run the risk of alienating people by *****ing about this, which is why I'm keeping it to my own blog rather than being argumentative in the forums. Because, truly, I'm more confused than anything else. I firmly believe that everyone should do what's best for them and be adult enough to make their own choices, but it doesn't mean I always understand those choices.

    I feel like many of us have fallen into a mindset of "I've been fat/overweight/depressed/unhappy/unhealthy/FillInTheBlank ...
  2. Driven to cheat

    Apparently it's easier for me to gain that magic 1.2 pounds instead of lose it. -__-

    Yesterday DH was competing in a ranch rodeo; it started around 4:00, but given that we were to be leaving so early, I ate lunch at lunchtime and not later, like I wanted (so I wouldn't be hungry). This is where my first cheat of the day occurred. I had shredded chicken salad with apples, but I added half a tablespoon of mayo. I was nauseous after eating it, but thought that it would hold me over ...
  3. No cheating this time..

    146 start weight
    125 - goal weight
    My first day has finally arrived! I had been preparing myself mentally for the diet for a few weeks..
    I had to fight a lot of negativity around me and convince a few people that truly care about me, that this diet is not as extreme as it seams to be..
    1 year ago I have tried this diet for the first time. I have managed to lose 25 pounds and get from size 6 to size 2, even though I was cheating entire time - drinking ...

  4. I fought the scale... and I won. Results of cheat day.

    Note: I would never recommend anyone to take the drastic action I did. Never base how your body works with the way someone else's does.

    Once my TOM came I was stalled at my weight for 10days. It was annoying jumping from staying between 153-154 every day. Those were the only numbers I was seeing. Wasn't anything I was eating since I had amazing loses eating the same foods and doing the same rogue things I had been since the beginning of the round with great results. I knew ...
  5. VLCD13 I survied a event with courses of yummy food in my face! lesson= be prepared!

    Today was my tea party I have been talking about. I have never been to one so I didn't know what to expect. Well, basically they put down foods right in front of your face and there is no way to get around eating them...so I thought! I didn't want to be rude, but the hostess fro each table brings a platter with exactly the number of people at each table (all tables of 8) then you eat and they come back with another tray and so on so forth. All bite size but this goes on for about a hour! Well I ...

  6. The begining

    Ok so today is day 5 of phase 2, I have LOTS of weight to and I have had some problems with hunger this past week. Not everyday but I get up at 6:30 am and do not go to sleep until 11:30 pm. I beleive that has alot to do with me being so hungry, unfortunately my body is going to have to get used to it because I do not have a choice

    The other night (day 3 of p2) I started cooking my dinner and when I opened the fridge saw the spinich dip (that i made to eat before I started this ...
  7. Cheating and losses

    Last night, I had a steak with grilled onions (no oil) and a salad that had romaine, yellow peppers, cucumbers and grape tomatoes. When did I get to a point in my head that cheating was adding MORE veggies? I did not have wine with my friend nor did I have the chips and dip she offered. THAT would be proper cheating. Funny how the mindset changes.

    Back to work tomorrow. I know we have a working lunch so I am prepping to take my own lunch for that. I am sure I will miss out on all ...
  8. 1 week down! The good, bad and Ugly and Beautiful!

    I've been meaning to figure out how to blog in here!
    So I have somewhere I can write out the hcg happenings and my family (un-supportive) won't see.

    Today is the official mark of week 1 done!
    So let me back up and start at the beginning. With a little about me.

    I am 30 years old. A mother to 4 beautiful babes here, and 7 more in Heaven. (miscarriages) A photographer by profession. A wife. A lover of piano and singing.
    When I find time I love ...
  9. Finally getting in the groove

    The hunger pains have finally stopped!! I think it was the lack of loading in day 1-2 that did me in. I also did some reading (referred to by a friend) on emotional hunger vs. real hunger and I think that recognizing that I wasn't really starving has made a big mental difference. I've also added Vitamin D and moved my injections to mid-afternoon from early morning. I'm hoping to have a sleep filled night with no waking and wanting to eat.

    VLCD Day 5
    2am feeding- apple, three ...
  10. I hate TOM !!! (TOM on R1 - VLCD Day 1)

    Don't know if there is anyone else out there with my HORRIFYING experience, but I hate TOM.

    I started Round One. Injected myself, and loaded on Saturday and Sunday (12/3 & 12/4). I was so excited and ready to start losing. Then TOM came! I did great in the am, but by lunch time was was starving and craving as I always do during TOM.

    I also was discouraged because I retain a ton of water during TOM, and feel like I will not seen any weight loss/results and ...
