Wow! It's hard to believe it's been 14 days since I started my VLCD! I do have to say, I'm glad it's coming to an end! I'm so happy that I've lost 14.3 pounds and that in just 2 weeks.....and I'd love to lose more. I'm thrilled that I've lost inches as well! I plan to do another couple of phases, at least, until I am at my ultimate goal weight, which is a big thing for me to say considering just a mere 14 days ago I was still a skeptic. But here I am, craving different food. I think I'm pretty good about mixing up what I eat, but I sure am ready for some variety! I knowingly cheated tonight at dinner with some roasted potatoes and I know that I'll have to answer for it at my morning weigh in. I made my decision to take about a 1/2 cups worth as I sat down to dinner and was even amazed at myself right then because I wasn't feeling remorse. The worst part of this cheat, is knowing that I wasted time and taste on something that didn't even taste good to me. Another lesson learned....except this time it's hitting me a little bit differently. I knew what I was doing, I know what the consequences will be and I gave up something long term for something more immediate and was disappointed. And it's a lesson I'm happy to learn. I feel liberated in a sense because I've learned not to beat myself up over the choices that aren't the best, but I've also learned alot of small lessons in the past couple weeks that will hopefully carry over into other parts of my life as well.

    Cheats are a part of dieting! As long as they are planned and not out of control, they are not that bad. I could not have lost all of this weight without an occasional break :)

    The good news is that you got it out of your system! The extra weight (if you show a gain) will come off quick and the change in calories often helps subsequent weight loss.
    That being said, 14 days is a bit soon. You are still losing well. Save cheating for those times when you are so tired of dieting that you just need a break or can use the extra calories to break a stall.

    Cheats aren't really worth it.
