    Day 1 of Phase 2 Today - Any others starting now?

    I am also on day one of the VLCD. I've done many rounds over the years. I think this might be my sixth. I don't think I'll make it to goal with one round but I will get really close - probably within 5 pounds. So may do a short round after.

    Good luck to you!

    This is technically my second time going through this. I tried to get started a few times previously but just couldn't get myself going. Hopefully with having someone at the same point as me, I'll have that extra push to get through this first week and move onto the rest of the time when it's really not something I think about all of the time.

    I don't think I'll get to goal this time around but will be grateful for every lb that comes off!

    You can do it! I did two back to back rounds in 2012. Since then I've done about a round a year just trying to stay comfortable in my skin.

    It's only 40 days - while it is a long 40 days, the results are well worth the investment. There is no other choice then to finish what we've started and make our 40 days worth it.

    We got this!

    Welcome Shaly! Today is VLCD 2 for me. I was down 4.4 this morning. By tomorrow I will hopefully have lost my load. I have all my stats from last round and I'm about the same except I loaded 6 pounds this round and only 4 last. Yesterday I felt pretty good. No headaches or real hunger. I took walk after dinner. Walked at a pretty slow pace for 3.5 miles. Felt good to be outside. I'm going to continue with mild exercise such as walking and yoga. I'm also going to continue taking my vitamins except the fish oil.
    I'm prepared to only lose about 17 pounds net (not including load) which is pretty typical for me.

    How are you today Kari? How did your first VLCD treat you?

    Hi ladies! Welcome Shalyco! I sounds like you are wrapping up Phase 1 and ready to jump into Phase 2 with us!

    The first 2 VLCDs went well. Down 2.6 lbs the first day and another .75 yesterday. Always hoping for that huge loss on week one so not super pleased with the drop thus far but certainly can't complain. I've been horrible about drinking enough water so am making a huge push with that today. VLCD1 I would have happily eaten one of my kids arms off but hunger gone yesterday. You are absolutely right LolaCat, 40 days is nothing - we've got this!

    Congrats on a great loss so far LolaCat!

    Hi Lovely Ladies!
    My name is Anna and today is my first day on P2. I have done the protocol a few times many years ago with quick gains afterwards, and I have finally gotten to a place where I can fully commit to the diet from a positive place. I would love to be on this journey with you because I really dont think I can do this alone. Please keep all of us upated on your successes and stuggles. I'll be here for you!

    Hi Anna,

    I'm happy to share in the journey, but remember, you are strong, you are determined and with or without support you can do this, everything you need is within you. Believe in yourself. One of my favorite quotes is "She believed she could, so she did."

    Sometimes I find the forums inspiring and sometimes they are a source of frustration for me when I'm doing everything right and not experiencing the same level of success as others. That's when I have to remind myself not to compare my results to others, we are all different in the way we lose and the way we gain. In the end if we work the program, the program will work and any amount lost is a success.

    Good luck and I will be here for you every day because it helps pass the time and keeps me engaged.

    Day 4 - :)

    Hi everyone!

    I'm Christie. 27 year old mom of 2. I have a 10 month old and looking to lose the most I can before his first birthday.

    I'm on VLCD 4 and feeling great (besides the little headache I have). Down 5.8lbs today. Gained 3.8 on loading.
    Haven't been very hungry. Looking forward to the days to come.

    So glad to find others sharing the same goals as me.

    How are you all feeling?

    Hi Christie, I am also on VLCD 4 and our losses are pretty much the same. I am 42 mom of three but my youngest is 11, so I can't blame baby weight. lol. Congratulations on your decision to take matters into your own hands and get the the weight off. I'm feeling pretty good. I had a slight headache yesterday. I have had bouts of hunger after exercising. I do yoga and have been walking. I've decided not to do the morning yoga class but the lunchtime class so I can eat immediately after. I gained 6 pounds on my load and am down 2.2 net weight. I keep reminding myself it's only 40 days and I only have 36 to go. But the days are long and I can't wait to be done! lol.

    Good luck to you!

    Hi all
    Been stalking this site since my first time doing hcg back in 2010. Had great success with hhcg drops lost 34 lbs. Since then been doing a round about every yr 1/2 since having my baby in 2013. All with great success. Had a few bumps in the road and gained back some wt here and there. Today I'm on day 4 vlcd. Going great. Down 6.2 lbs. Lost 2 lbs while loading and I ate everything under the sun. Go figure? Happy to be gaining back control over my eating habits and my life.
