VLCD #3 and it ain't pretty. 143.4

I took too long to update, but it's been crazy with work and family. In fact, I only have a few minutes before I have to run into the office and go over an inspection report with a client.

Pre-load weight was 142.

Post load weight was 141.6

I decided to add a 2nd load weight, this time just a steak day (but lots of steak and a little cheese).

Post load/steak day was 142.6

VLCD day 1 143.6
VLCD day 2 143.4
VLCD day 3 143.4

Needless to say, I'm frustrated. I'd hoped since I lost my mind the last year with the emotional roller coaster I was on and the emotional eating I did, that I would have more typical results. Most people lose the most in this first week.

Given I've had rounds like this where hunks fly off later, I am staying the course, albeit with the fear that this isn't going to work. I'm determined to go until March 10th. My in-laws will be here mid March. They saw me almost exactly a year before that and I was in the 120s. My brother is getting married the end of March. I am determined to ride this through.

I don't have a uterus and I do have ovaries, and I suspect I may have started my round during PMS. That's all I can hope. I'm weighing and logging every calorie. I even worked out Friday (a habit I want to form while doing this - just a half hour walk on the treadclimber week days).

I haven't delved into the why I'm here yet, but I will. I'm not angry at myself at all. Actually, learning not to be afraid of food was both liberating and educational.

Sorry I didn't respond to the comments on the last post. I have got to figure out how to set up getting notified when they come in. I am glad to see you guys here!!

I'm off to work!

Hello dear friend! So good to see you here!! I too am on P2- we can be round buddies!! I've been on P2 since Jan 13th, and will start a one week P3 tomorrow, then back on P2 for 3 weeks. 3 weeks on, 1 week off, cycling until its all off!

After all you have been through last year, please be patient with yourself now. Are you doing strict protocol? You may be at a point in your hormonal cycle where you just need to keep drinking water, etc, till you are back to normal. Or, you may be at a previous set point, that may take a little longer to get past. You will do it though! Hang in there!!!

I haven't picked my blog back up yet -- probably need to do that-

I remember the frustration of those slow to start rounds. The losses would pick when it was time to end the round and debating with yourself about whether to keep going or stop.....

LD, I got the invite! YAY HCG P2 BUDDY!!!! I am so glad we can do this together!! Now you need to update :D

RS (AR) :P Yes, this seems AWFULLY familiar. I'm guessing this is hormonal. I'm doing everything by the book. Maybe things will start moving when I can give my body permission to let go of all it has been hanging onto. How are you doing?
