I'm still a skeptic. Did I really lose 4.4 lbs because of the VLCD or because of the meds or because I was just supposed to lose that much in one day?!?!? Don't get me wrong, I'm still so excited about the loss, but I think it feels almost too good to be true! I was ready to give up after having just started. It wasn't that I was even that hungry, it was just the thought of the food and the thought of 20 more days with restrictions. I was allowing myself to be overwhelmed with the strictness of P2 that I kept telling myself I have to be hungry, that I can't possibly not be hungry on such a low calorie diet. But, I think that's part of the whole diet, learning to recognize hunger for what it is and learning to overcome temptation. We'll see how day 2 goes.

    After the first few days, the HCG seems to make me dis-interested in food. I sort of think of it in a wistful way, but not really a want. I am in Round 2, on VLCD 5, and it's going great.

    Keep up the great job!

    You are absolutely right that this is a mental game! On my VLCD 1, I swear, a DQ Blizzard spoon grew a face and started talking to me! Really.

    I'm on VLCD 4 and have not cheated at all. Now that the mind games are passing, it's a lot easier.

    Good luck!

    It may have been a combination of water weight and actual weight lost, see how much you lose next week and you may be pleasantly surprised!
