Back on track!

Tuesday, November 02, 2010

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... emoticon 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... emoticon

I'm almost there!! Woohoo!!


Only me... -.-

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!


Apple Day

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

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!!

I'm Amazed...

Friday, October 22, 2010

Well today was my 11th day of VLCD on this round of HCG, and I am amazed at how easy this round has been! I've lost 11.5 lbs so far! I went to the store and bought chicken today and when I divided all of it up into baggies and popped them in the freezer so all I have to do is pull out 2 servings each day. Makes it WAY easier! Actually I didn't just go to the store... I somehow had energy to ride my bicycle to the store and didn't get exhausted like I did during the first week.

So I've made it almost 2 weeks without any major hunger and thankfully the 2 weeks have gone by really fast! I hope my loss stays steady and doesn't stall again, but since it's not really difficult I won't mind if I have to go an extra few days.

One thing that has been really nice is I am enjoying the simplicity of the food! I love how easy it is to eat and to not have to balance things and worry about it. It's set - every day I know exactly what to eat and as simple as it is, it's delicious! My favorite is a chopped tomato boiled with some grilled chicken and fajita spices to make a soup, or the same but with cabbage. After my meal I like to slice up my apple and sprinkle pumpkin pie spice on it for "dessert"... sooooo good!

I was also excited about my costume for this year... I picked up the boots and main part today and tried it all on for the first time and if I do say so myself I looked pretty B.A.! LOL. I decided on being Alice from Resident Evil since my bestie is going as Claire from the R.E. movies, so that way we can kinda be "in theme" with each other like we always do. I'm excited though because I still have a week to go before the party next Saturday so hopefully I can drop another 3 or 4 lbs before that even and feel even better about my dress! :D Well that's all for now!

To all those who read this... stay strong and keep going even when it gets hard! Never give up!! Life does get hard, but I believe in all of you and I know you can pull through whatever it is you may be struggling with. :)

Here's my costume for this year ;-)

First Cheat in my life :(

Thursday, October 21, 2010

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!

    Thanks girls for your encouragement and advice! I definitely don't see it as a reward for cheating, rather mercy on my stupidity! LOL. I'm not as emotional about it as I was right afterwards... think I was having one of *those* nights last night! ;-) All is well today and staying on track!!

    Please don't worry so much. When I was using the HCG homeopathic drops, I ate lots of (mostly healthy)"off protocol" food and still lost weight! I didn't even think of it as cheating, because I could tell from the hunger and fatigue I was experiencing that my system wasn't getting enough calories from the fat the HCG was releasing, and I needed more intake food than the protocol recommends. Apparently, some people do fine on the 500 calorie plan, but many others need to modify it to meet our body's requirements.

    Stop beating yourself up!!! it happened, get over it, bonus: you lost a pound in the process.
Now don't take this as a reward for cheating, get back with the program and move on. Today is a new day!
