Today is my 4th VLCD and I'm down 8lbs already! I know most of it's water weight but it's still nice to see it on the scale. Speaking of scales - I must say it's very liberating NOT having a digital scale available to me this round. If my weight goes up by a half pound on this scale I'm not going to notice it like I would if it was right there in front of me on a digital one. I remember last round how discouraged I would get when I had a stall or a gain... I don't even have the chance to weigh every day during this round and it seems to be going so much better!
I do think there's some detoxing going on, though. I have only been a little bit hungry, probably because I'm keeping busy, but last night my sister and I went out and I felt a little dizzy and weak for the first time this round. I added some electrolytes to my water/coffee so I think that'll help a bit, but I know I'm detoxing for sure.
The weridest thing is that I keep forgetting I'm in Phase 2. I'm not tempted to eat anything per-se, I just forget to wear gloves and watch what I'm touching, etc. I guess that's a *good* thing, because it really preoccupied my mind last time and I don't think it was healthy.
Well, just wanted to write something quick and short this morning. Excited for Tuesday... I'm going to take my measurements weekly on Tuesdays and see how many inches I lose each week instead of just going by pounds.
