Day 2 VLCD

I weighed in at 4 am with a .2 pound loss. I knew this was possible and was even prepared for it, but disappointed nonetheless. I told myself to wait until I woke up this morning to re-weigh. I was pleased to see the drop was now 1.1 pounds, exactly how much I had gained on the 2nd load day. So, 125.6 this morning. I hope things speed up this week as it will inevitably slow down again.

I have a lot on my plate today and the kids are on break until tomorrow. It will be easier to gather my thoughts when they're back in school.

OH, last night I had my sorbet. SO delicious. Here's the recipe:




150 grams of frozen strawberries
1/4 to 1/3 cup of water
1 dropper full sweet leaf brand liquid vanilla cream stevia
1/2 - 1 lemon juice

Blend with a hand mixer until smooth. You will think you're cheating, I swear. Approx 50 calories and totally P2 compliant!

OH, it occurs to me now that if you added ice and tequila, you'd have a Strawberry LowCarbirita! Only 13 carbs! Of course, that would have to wait until AFTER P2. :)

Have a great day!

Hello- I am a newbie at this and am so appreciative of your blog! I am also thankful for the recipe on this post because I am so craving sweet things (what with the birthday cake laying around for my daughter's party, but so far no temptation to cross over to the Sugar darkside!
You are doing amazing and are such an inspiration.
Thanks so much for putting yourself "out there."

Thanks so much Sandi! I relate about the cake. My daughter turned 7 on Saturday and we have Costco vanilla cheesecake mousse filled cake. Fortunately, I'm not having cravings for it, but definitely for the sorbet - I may eat it everyday this round (and past)! :D

Thanks again for the kind words!!

Hey, helderheid! Thank goodness for that 1.1lb drop! I know how you are feeling, and wanting to get up to check your progress- I'm glad you checked it again later, and you had such a good result. Your losses may be smaller and may be a bit slower this round, but that is only because you are SOOOOO very close to your goal weight! Look at how far you've come! You're almost there...

Your sorbet recipe looks delicious! How can I make lemon sorbet? Any ideas?

helderheid said...

Actually, I do have an idea. Instead of the vanilla cream stevia, you could use lemon drop stevia with some lemon juice and ice! I may have to try that!

lavenderdiva said...

ooh, that sounds yummy! where are you getting all your flavors of stevia? are you purchasing them locally, or are you ordering them via the internet? I had to order root beer stevia from amazon...

www.vitacost.com has great pricing. I don't know if they have the lemon drop flavor though. I'll do some googling!
