Day 23 VLCD...

I'm almost there! 4 more pounds til' my goal and I'M DONE!!! Today will be my husbands 11th day on VLCD and he is down 13lbs. It's amazing how quickly this has worked for him with having so little body fat to lose. Yesterday he had his first day of "no hunger" issues- and couldn't finish his dinner last night. So for you men out there who are afraid of the "hungries" it gets better after about a week!!!

My mom starts VLCD today- next Aunt Sally and Aunt Julie starting next week. Pretty soon my whole family will be HCG'd!!!

Day 16 VLCD...

I'm stuck :( this is the worst!! I guess if I don't budge again on the scale tomorrow I will be doing an apple day. I just hate going into a weekend with no changes in the scale - I know the last few pounds were going to be tough, but not this tough!!

Good news, my husband started VLCD on Monday- and is down 9lbs today. He only has about 15 to lose at MOST so at this rate, he ought to be done in a week!!!

Day 11 VLCD...

Down 1lb 2 oz! Wahoo! I did decide to do a Jay Robb shake yesterday after all, and I think it's paying off. At this rate I should be done in another week- oh one can only hope!!! I seem to drop a pound, then the next day- nothing... drop a pound and so on. Oh well, I can live with it!! As long as it's coming off. Need to measure myself too- I keep forgetting to do that!

Day 10 VLCD...

No loss... No gain.... hm. Today I'm going to have a normal day - no Jay Robb shakes for me. Last night I had one for dinner- chocolate with fresh strawberries blended in. It was YUMMMMY!

Dan has definitely committed to starting the diet. He begins loading tomorrow... I'm trying to figure out what I can have on hand for him to eat without killing myself wanting to eat the same thing!! I'm so excited!

Day 9 VLCD...

Down a pound! WOO HOOOOOO! Yesterday I swapped out my evening protein with a Jay Rob shake. I used vanilla, with a couple drops of Valencia orange stevia drops in a blender with water and ice... it tasted like an orange creamsicle! Today, I plan on doing this again- and then tomorrow I'm going to go back to two normal protein services to switch it up again. I think this will be good for me on weekends too... they are always the hardest for me!!!

I think my husband will be starting a program on Monday... I'm so excited, it will make it so much easier for me if he's doing it with me. He has about 10lbs to lose, and carries his weight around his middle- he can lose 10lbs without even thinking about it but it never seems to reduce his middle so I think this might do the trick! I finally have him convinced!!!

Day 8 VLCD....

Ok. No budge on the scale. Hmmmmm, in reviewing my caloric intake for yesterday I find that I was only at 460 :( CARP. Today, I'm going to eat steak instead of shrimp, for lunch... and try the protein shake for dinner. I found that yesterday having the shake for lunch- I was really hungry in the afternoon, and being hungry at work is HARD because there is always so much to munch on around here!!!

Day 7 VLCD...

Ok :) I'm back to where I started at on Saturday morning... before my Super Bowl party extravaganza...

Today I'm trying something knew that I read about on the HCG Forums. I'm replacing one of my protein portions with a "Jay Robb" shake. Evidently, those who have tried this have seen greater losses the next day. I went to GNC last night, and they had sample packs- so I bought 4 to see how I do with them. This way, you are getting a TON of protein, but none of the fat content a normal portion of 3.5oz has... I know this is totally off protocol but I thought I'd give it a try. Tune in tomorrow, I'll be praying for a nice LOSS!!!

Day 6... VLCD

Down another pound... and then na da because Super Bowl Sunday was an "off day" if you catch my drift!!! So I'm having an apple day to correct my faux pas :) So we'll see what happens tomorrow. So happy to have a day where I don't have to drown myself in water!

Day 3 VLCD

Lost another pound :) Not bad for a couple days work! Still not having any issues with hunger or cravings. I even braved Costco and it's infamous SAMPLE aisle without missing a beat! I think the memory of how bad I felt after my loading days is still fresh on my mind. I will post my weight and measurements on Wednesday and see how they match up to my measuremants on my final day of HCG last round. I won't be posting any pictures in my skivvies until I hit my goal weight though...

Day 2 VLCD

WOO HOOOOOOO! Guess how much I lost overnight :) GUESS. AHAHAHAHAHAH. 4 lbs 10 oz since yesterday :) I feel SO MUCH BETTER. Sorry to be shouting, I'm just so happy!!! What did I do yesterday? I ate all of my fruit, veggies and protein but cut out the melba. Not by choice, because I didn't have any and I'm not making a special trip to the store for it either... I also had a cup of sugar free International Coffee last night and it doesn't appear to have affected me but I will play that by ear for sure.

Here is what I ate my first VLCD day:

Morning- drops
Coffee & Water til' noon
Lunch: 3.5oz steak, 1 large Roma Tomato, 1 apple
Dinner: 3.5oz chicken, 1 cucumber, 1/2 apple
1 cup Sugar Free French Vanilla International Coffee

I wasn't hungry- ever. Thank God!!!

Oh Praise God. I love phase 2. It's so easy, and I feel SO much better :) I had a nice simple lunch of steak, tomato and apple- and haven't had a problem with hunger at all today. I'm hoping that I lose the 6lbs that I gained on my two loading days!!! I never want to feel that awful again!!

I hate loading days.

Day 2... I cannot wait to be done with loading days. I feel like my body just went through WWIII. Every inch of my body feels bruised. Keep in mind, I have been clean eating since October. Eating whatever I want these past two days, has definitely taken it's toll on my body. I feel bruised all over, swollen and sick to my stomach. This is amazing, how does a poor diet affect your body? Well, now I know!!!! Is it worth it? NO. I cannot wait to be on VLCD tomorrow!! YAY FOR PHASE 2!

I must be crazy.

DAY ONE... Loading again!

My final round of HCG starts today!!! I want to lose 10 lbs. I stabilized on Phase 3, (the past 3 weeks) at 121lbs. So... that means, today is day one of loading. This is crazy. I don't like eating this junk however, when I start VLCD on tuesday I know I will look back on these 2 loading days with LONGING so I'd better start packing in the grub! I have not had pasta since October of last year... I had some over the weekend and my weight stayed the same which made me VERY happy. After eating all day, my body feels bruised sluggish and just down right GROSS. My last round, I stuffed food in and didn't gain an ounce on my 2 loading days. This time around, I am going to make sure I gain if I have to eat an entire vat of guacamole.

This will be a 23 day round for me, and I'm hoping that with all I learned during my last rounds that this will be trouble free for me. Somehow... I doubt it tho. Be sure to tune in daily for more adventures in HCG with Melissa.
