  1. Beginning of Round 2....

    Round 2 is getting off to a great start!

    P1 -- Loading:
    Like previous rounds, I had to FORCE myself to load, because of my lack of hunger. I'm so glad I didn't go grocery shopping to stock up on things to load on, because most of it would have gone to waste. I just ate a few avocados, a bunch of almonds, some cocoa crack, a Ribeye steak, cheesecake, tiramisu, and some creamy roasted garlic mashed potatoes.

    The Results:

    Pre-load: 180

  2. Plans for a Successful R2

    Round 2 is only a few days away, and I'm excited about it. I'm comfortable with where I am during this stabilization phase -- 3 lbs. under LIW even after adding sweet potatoes, air-popped popcorn, fruit juice, almonds, dairy, and tons of cocoa crack. Also, my appetite seems to have diminished, which makes me eager to get back to a VLCD.

    I'm shocked that I have no desire to gorge on things I might miss during the VLCD, but it's further validation that I've gotten over my addiction ...
  3. First week down!

    I was thinking the other day, I have no clue at this point what round I'm on since I first started doing this 4 years ago. In the beginning it was to get my body back and finally be happy. The last couple years they've been maintenance rounds more than anything. I have always kept journals but after this long I don't even know where those notes are.

    I do have all my notes in my computer though from things that have worked for me to things that did not. As well as cycling, which I ...

  4. Vlcd 5

    So far so good. I am down 5.6lbs so far. On my first vlcd I was actually down 1lb after all the loading which is a first for me. I can gain anywhere up to 9lbs loading (this when I do a 3 day load if I do a 40 day round which I have found works better for me). All in all, I only gained 3.5lbs loading.

    I am back to taking my vitamins like I use to while on the diet. But this time I've added in 5HTP. I read that it helps with moods and hunger. Well, I don't get hungry on the hcg, but ...
  5. Crossing Fingers on Hitting Sweet Spot!

    I don't want to jinx myself by saying this, but I think I may have hit my dosage sweet spot. That would be awesome for me so early in a round - VLCD 7 today. It's the first day I haven't felt a tinge of hunger after being out of bed for an hour or so. Still just contentedly sipping my coffee, not considering a celery or cucumber stick (my go-to's, subtracted from later in the day). So for that, I'm thankful.

    Officially ridiculously addicted to homemade fraps. Thank the culinary ...
  6. Early skip day - good sign? Bad sign? Not a sign? VLCD 4

    VLCD4, and it feels like I've been at it forever. Haha. In a good way, though, like it's already back to being a habit. I woke up 1.2lbs down, thankfully. That puts me at almost one pound over LIW from last round.

    I was absolutely ravenous yesterday. As I told a friend, I was so hungry I could've clubbed a baby seal and eaten it raw. It was pretty bad. I didn't deviate or cheat, but it was difficult. For me, it's a little early in the round to have to adjust a dose, but maybe ...
  7. I'm here again

    It's been about 10 months since I was here last. Last time I was working on losing 10lbs and I did it. I just celebrated my birthday yesterday. Time sure flies.

    I was recently ill from a sinus infection that went into my lungs. I was put on prednisone and you guessed it, weight on. Not too bad. But either way, I need to lose 15lbs.

    Today is vlcd 1. Just had my 2 loading days and I ate until I felt I couldn't eat anymore. You always worry though if you ate enough to ...

    Instead of enjoying some BBQ, burgers and hotdogs, I went cray cray at the outlets. The best part about it is I dropped 2 pant sizes. Woohoo!
