VLCD #28 - 120.7 - New plan, lovies... new plan...

Wow! Down from 122. 120.7 on the NEW scale, 120.1 on the old one! Ah, teasey teasers!

So, yesterday was to be my last dose day, but then I had this lovely drop. That said, I will do what I did last round - dose so long as I'm releasing. The morning I step on the scale and see a gain (or even the same perhaps), I will stop dosing and take the day before as my LDW. I just assumed my body was done releasing until the lovely numbers today. The hunger has subsided as well. Very, very odd.

Happy Halloween!

I'm going to treat it as the Pagan holiday it is in the day, and gather everything I'd like to let go of and burn it (test results, contracts with clients who walked away, and some of the writing I did here). I'll have copies of everything I need still, but I want the symbolism of burning all that has haunted me this year. Yes, I watch Eastwick. I thought that was brilliant!

This evening it's trick or treating with the kiddos. My husband normally does this and I'm hoping he'll step up with year too. I did the whole school parade thing surrounded by screaming and H1N1 coughing infants as well as the day off thing with all day play dates. I prefer to stay home and hand out the goodies. We'll see if he sees it my way. He's already told me this year it's my turn. I'm just not seeing that. :)

Off to dose!

Fantastic!!!!! I know I sound like a broken record, but I'm believing you will see the teens. This round.

Good for you for releasing all those old things, and burning them! I think the symbolism is great. I also think there are parallels with releasing the old in you, and releasing a few of those last lbs..... call me crazy: crazy.

I think you're right!! I *will* see the teens! I will, I will, I WILL.

That is an awesome loss!!! I think you'll see the teens too.

I love Practical Magic too! I chose to watch Ghost Hunters most of the evening though.
Great losing!
