    Im starting rethink doing a short round this time since TOM goofed my time line. I made the mistake and stopped my 2nd round right before TOM (Mr. Simeon's advises against it) and I didn't stabilize well after. If would go for a 40 day round if I knew I could reach 30 lbs. 23 lb loss is the most I've lost in a round (34 day average each). I'm strict with original protocol and zero cheats. That's why I'm considering trying 2 short rounds...hoping to lose 15 and 15. I'm going to see where things go.

    Have you tried and had good success with longer rounds?

    I did NOTHING to cause this and it is not my shoulder or elbow, not a joint at all, just the meaty part of my left upper arm. argh. No, not from mowing, as it has been this way for 3 weeks, but just suddenly got worse on Tuesday. It doesn't hurt to push a mower, it hurts to lift my arm even without anything in my hand. I can drive fine, as long as I lift my arm up with the other hand until I can reach the wheel! Good thing I use a fork with my right hand, or I'd have starved to death. I can use the computer keyboard just fine, as that is low and just reach out, not up.


    Dr's appt tomorrow. I don't want pain pills. I don't want steroids. I want to know what the heck I did and how not to do it anymore!

    Crossing fingers that this is the 2 pound jump, because I have not eaten ANYTHING different than last week or the week before.

    P
    I'm worried about you PearlyMae!! Take some ibuprofen tonight and please let us know what the doctor says. Hugs ♥️

    Charliegirl, I just lost my dad February 4. Mom passed over 17 years ago, dad held onto her cremains. We had a joint memorial for them in Michigan on July 21. That would've been their 59th wedding anniversary. My promise to dad was I'd see he and mom were buried together. I've spent the last several months making the arrangements, doing crafty things for the luncheon, etc. It helped me to work through my grief, but was SO painful at the same time. I actually planned on starting this round a few weeks ago, but realized it was just too much, thank goodness.

    The grief does get easier to deal with over time, but honestly, I miss my mom horribly all the time. She was my best friend, I loved her dearly, still do. Her death was sudden, dads wasn't. He suffered for years before passing, we had the chance to come to terms with it before it actually happened, as did he. I can tell you, I surely know what you're going through. If you ever need to reach out to someone, just PM me.

    I lost my mother in May after a long battle with Scleroderma. I packed on over 30 lbs (60 total) from a couple of years ago. I had he opposite problem. I was dating a man who told me I was beautiful no matter what and I didnít believe him. He was also very heavy and I felt like all we did was eat. Thatís not me, I have skis and a paddleboard in my garage and love to be active.

    9 days ago I stopped drinking for this diet. I was borderline alcoholic with the amount I was drinking. Mainly out of boredom and to numb the pain of losing my mom. I wasnít ready for her to be gone. Two days ago I went to the mall. I went to Sephora and looked like complete ****. I was just going to get my skin care but decided to ask if someone could do my makeup. I explained my recent depression and just feeling blah and ended up getting a mini facial and a makeover. It made me feel pretty. I then walked out and there was the flat iron kiosk that I usually avoid but this time I didnít. I walked out feeling alive again. I didnít buy any clothes as I am not ready for that just yet.

    Today I am down 12.6 lbs on day 10 of VLCD. I am almost back down to onederland. The emotional toll of being over 200# was detrimental to my mental health. I will never allow myself to get that way again.

    You can do this and it works. Talk to us and try to let your husbandís comments roll off. Men are weird!! Do this for you, not him! I believe in you ))

    ❤️❤️. Thank you. I am so sorry to hear about your dad and am glad he got his final wish. I was holding my momís hand when she took her last breath and she was surrounded by my dad, brother and sister-in-law. I am actually seeing a therapist on the 8th to help me work through some grief. I really appreciate your post!!

    Here are my stats
    SW 178.6 (I was like 176.6 before load)
    VLCD 23 160.8 (LIW)
    (VLCD) 160.7 (VLCD) 160.7
    P3 week 1 160.7, 160.2, 160.7, 160.7, 161.0, 160.7, 162.4
    P3 week 2 162.4, 162.4, 163.9, 161.9, 161.9, 161.1, 161.1
    P3 week 3 162.6, 161.6. 160.3. 160.3, 161.4, 162.0, 161.7
    P4 week 1 164.1

    2.5 ish pounds...not exactly sure what happened. I did come home and have four slices of salami that was cured in sugar, but the package said less than 2% and it did not show any sugars in the label. Wow..shows you how much I must react to that. Good thing I don't have much to do today other than work. Easy day to do a high protein day. I will have some hard boiled eggs and chicken..then maybe some steak tonight and a lot of water. This is what I did last time and it worked. It is too hard for me to be at work all day and fast until I get home. I would like to be in range for my seafood night tomorrow. UGH....I hate food sensitivities.

    Up working, getting my last assessment done for one agency. Have one to do tonight and one to do tomorrow and then my son and I leave for PA and then NYC on Wed. My plan is to eat P3 the entire time. It should not be too hard. except they are talking dinner in chinatown..so maybe that one night I will have to consider my options.

    The good bad and ugly about this journey is that we usually end up stripping down what is making us make bad decisions in our lives, whether it is that extra serving of dinner or the chips and salsa at the table. I know the first time I was truly successful in my weight loss journey was when I journaled to how I was feeling/thinking and I found how sad I really was. On the outside happy life, busy, running around after kids/husband, chasing a career but then when I actually stripped away the glossy outside I saw that I saw ME in a very negative light. I don't know how that happened but when I didn't value ME then I didn't take care of ME either. I do suggest having a journal, a private place to right down thoughts and feelings and see how you can improve your self image.

    Today is day 1 of VLCD and I know this is the mental aspect of the game. I brought a bigger water container to work to make sure I am drinking enough because I work on an amazing property developemnt (The Pearl) in San Antonio and it has 15+ restaurants on campus plus we have fruit/nuts/snacks in our kitchen that I need to stay away from. It is an awesome place to be but can make that diet part hard. I weighed in at home but can't remember the weight but I was up a couple pounds from yesterday which makes sense since I ended up with two burger meals lol.

    I do have a planned interruption for Aug 16-19 as we are headed to the coast to hang out of the beach for the last getaway before school starts. I am hoping to be down 10ish pounds by then so I can feel better getting some sun and not be so self conscious about my body.

    I decided during this round that i was going to most importantly pay attention. That means instead of like oh well i am up it will come down, being proactive and making myself take some responsibility and clean it up today. I have been getting up earlier as I wanted to bill all of assessments I did before I left on my trip back east. After I weighed and had some coffee I actually had a BM without the need for prompting (taking something). I am hoping to get more regular again. I have also peed quite bit. Had two hard boiled eggs for breakfast, luckily the officers mess at work (I work in the jail) always has hard boiled eggs available. I also brought some chicken and some pulled park (just pork...nothing on it, cooked last night in the instant pot). I did throw in some cucumbers as they usually help with releasing water..later today I will just plan on some meat and maybe some asparagus also helps with releasing water. I think that is pretty clean and high protein.

    Bless, you, blue and Jessie, too.

    I have... let me copy and paste cuz I'll never get it spelled right: bicep/tricep/brachioradialis tendinitis. In both arms. Or, maybe extreme computer elbow would also describe it, but with more tendons than just my elbow involved. I spend several hours a day at my day job on the computer, and another 3 to 5 hours 3 or 4 evenings a week. It has finally gotten to me.

    Physical therapy, muscle relaxers RX, maybe lidocaine shots... all coming soon. Meanwhile, I am actually better today. Ibuprofen is my dear friend! I guiltily told the doc I took it 4 tablets at a time, and she said, "Perfect." So will keep eating those every 4-6 hours.

    I'm down .6 today, so making progress. Both arms feel 'heavy' so I still have over a pound of imflammation 'water' to drain off somehow!

    My plan is to load tomorrow and start P2 on Monday, but I am so super tired from not sleeping (Tight: you are a SUPERHERO!) with this silly thing (move, ouch! wake up, finally fall asleep, REPEAT all night long.) That I may slide at least one day. I have work tomorrow a.m. and again all evening, so unless I do fast food, I don't have time to load. Sunday I have a brunch, so am thinking that is a better day to start. Iv'e been known to do three...

    Ouch Pearly!! I have had tennis elbow that really prevents me from doing everyday things so I can imagine that your condition is awful. Hopefully the NDAIDs and the muscle relaxers can help you to feel better.
