VLCD Day 11

Injection #12
Loss Today: <.6>
Loss Total: <17.2>

Whew. Even though I tried not to stress over it, it was certainly good to see that scale move again this morning. What surprised me more than anything is my resolve. Any other diet I've ever been on, that simple stopping of the scale would have sent my emotions into extreme turmoil and I most likely would have headed straight for food. That option didn't even cross my mind this time. It was discouraging, yes, but any sort of cheating just isn't on my radar. That's almost a complete miracle to me.

Lunch: Sometime around 10am I munched on an apple. Then at lunchtime I fixed Chicken Pizzaiola with a grissini.

Dinner: Mid-afternoon I had some Green Apple Slaw which was so refreshing and crisp. Tonight for dinner I tried out my new recipe for Mexican Chicken Soup. I know I'm biased but I really liked it. It was perfect on this slightly chilled evening. It tastes a lot like Tortilla Soup but without the tortillas. :) I couldn't even finish it all. I did make sure to eat all the chicken out of it so I got all of my protein, however. Here's to another day!

I'm right there with you about not being discouraged when the scale doesn't move. I didn't consider cheating either but I have had some mean cravings! Made your Tomato Soup last night, it was wonderful! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I so glad you liked the soup! You're very welcome. :) If you have any requests, please let me know!


Thanks! Sometimes I just have to get that stuff off of my chest - even if it does make me ramble on & on & on. ;)

I'll be seeing you on phase 2 again soon!
