Well after my apple day, I continued to be stalled for another 2 days... talked to my Doctor and she reminded me that I work as a barista... milk-fat!! Everywhere!!! I've been wearing turtlenecks and gloves all day at work the last week (thank GOODNESS it's November and more welcoming to skin-protecting clothing! LOL) and I've dropped 3.5 lbs this week! I'm very excited to be back on track and hoping to be down to my goal weight in 2 weeks *fingers crossed*
I'm already fitting into almost all of my clothes - shirts are still a little tight for true comfort and same for jeans, but I'm glad they're in my league. Makes me wanna keep on going... I really can't believe it's already been 3 weeks of VLCD today! Last time I did this it seemed like an eternity once I hit the 21 day mark - this time I could go for another 20 days and I don't really think I would care a bit! Hopefully it doesn't take that long, though hahaha.
Also today I went ahead and bought a digital scale. Getting closer to my goal weight and closer to Phase 3, for which I have to have a scale to keep track of the 2lbs up/down. The only thing about it is now that the numbers are right there in front of my face, I'm afraid to step on the scale in the mornings for fear of a .2, .4, or .6 gain. The bad part is that 4 days of the week I'm up and weighing at 5:15 in the morning instead of 7-8, so I'm interested to see how that will affect it now that I have the digital scale and if it shows a 'gain' I'm going to have to remember that I'm weighing WAY earlier than normal!
Anyway just was too excited about everything tonight since I got to wear one of my favorite shirts and it's not skin-tight and nasty feeling...
I'm almost there!! Woohoo!!

GO FIGURE! I did my apple day yesterday, right? Got up this morning and realized I did not have access to a scale. ONLY ME! Anyway I took my measurements and they're down an inch on my waist from 4 days ago, and a half inch everywhere else. I must say I mentally felt better today, but I have no clue if my apple day worked. Guess that was kinda dumb of me!
Well I will know soon if I lost anything - hopefully tomorrow morning I'll see at least something of a drop!

Today was my 1st apple day... and I must say I rather enjoyed it! I've only eaten 4 1/2 of my 6 allowed apples, but they're pretty big apples so it probably evened out nicely. I decided to do my apple day today after 4 days of pretty much no loss at all, although I did for some reason get TOM about 2 weeks early so that definitely didn't help.
Anyway, started out this morning and had to ride my bike about 2 miles to school since my car is dead, but I'm used to riding 10-15 miles a day (before I started Phase 2) so my leg muscles are fine with that right now. Got home around noon, wasn't very hungry but I had an apple with some cinnamon and a bit of water, and then fell asleep for 2 hours. And when I say fell asleep, I mean DEEP sleeping. I woke myself up out of a dream and saw the clock said 3pm and was afraid I had slept until tomorrow and had a slight moment of panic! Haha. Well I stumbled around, had to go to the bathroom like CRAZY (releasing fat/water weight?), then was a little peckish so I ate another apple. Worked on some schoolwork for an hour, then promptly fell asleep again for another 1 1/2 hours! I never sleep during the day - even after I'm exhausted from work I sometimes sleep for 20 minutes but that's it! I guess something was off kilter with my body today because apparently I really needed some sleep.
Well woke up from that nap and munched on another sliced apple with cinnamon, then spent some time with my roommate and then I was still hungry so I ate another half of an apple and drank some warm water. About 45 minutes later I had yet another major bathroom rush! Guess it's working! ;-)
So tomorrow morning the scale/inches will tell how effective the apple day was! I must say it has been SO NICE to not have to eat chicken today... I get so tired of eating the protein portion (I was a pescetarian before I did this... it's just too expensive to do fish twice a day right now so I had to go with chicken). I'm considering doing the 3 eggs once but I don't want to mess anything up or stall again, since I'm already 'behind' where I wanted to be by now (if you could call it behind? lol).
Anyway I'll post results from my apple day tomorrow... hope it worked!!

Well I feel like a total failure.
This is my 2nd round of HCG Ph2, and during my first round I never cheated. Not once! I was very hungry through my first week on my first round, but I never cheated.
On my 2nd round I loaded better and have not been hungry at all for my first week (now 9 days I believe)... and I have not cheated at all. I had been kinda stuck for the last 3 days but I think it was water weight because I had worked my muscles both days... so I was expecting to see a drop tomorrow morning when I wake up, until......
My roommate got home tonight and wanted to go for a 20 mile bike ride. I declined, but he didn't want to ride by himself again so he suggested we go get something to eat. Again I declined, but told him I would go and keep him company. We got to the restaurant and he ordered and when the food arrived he shoved a piece in my face with that cute grin, not even thinking that I'm on this diet I know. I hesitated... I didn't want to. I could have said, "No thanks" and had a tease from him and that would have been it, but no... I gave in to that face. Stupid of me. I just couldn't decline him! Forget the food - it wasn't that great and I felt nauseous afterward and now I'm absolutely starving. Totally not worth it for the taste, but this guy always gets me in trouble just because he exists. LOL.
I managed to make it look like I took a good sized bite when in actuality I only took maybe a half-inch piece, but I know how sensitive HCG is when it's in your system! If wearing mascara can make weight increase, what could *eating* fatty substances do??! I don't want to know, but I'm obviously going to be finding out in the morning.
Anyway just venting and ranting. Gonna do an apple day tomorrow to get back on track if my weight spikes or stays where it is.
What has everyone else's experience with cheating been? Anybody cheated with 1 bite like that or do most people actually *eat* when they cheat?
EDIT: Wrote this last night... woke up this morning and had to go to the bathroom like CRAZY!!! Lost a whole pound last night, believe it or not!
