VLCD Day 26

No Injection
Loss Today: <.6>
Loss Total: <26.2>


I'm still feeling not so great. My throat doesn't feel as swollen but I do feel slightly feverish and just a big bag full of funk. We did have storms roll in last night so it could just be my allergies going wacky all of a sudden. Or that full moon that's due to hit on the 26th that's apparently causing anyone & everyone to lose their freaking minds. Don't even get me started on that rant.

I'll update more later.

Lunch: By mid-morning I was still feeling a bit down and not quite right so I fixed an award-winning comfort food. Apple Crisp. It was so warm and gooey and delicious. Alright alright, so it's not really award-winning, but my sons both claim it to be better than Grandma's.
They are such sweet, wonderful liars.

A couple hours later, I prepared the rest of my lunch and had Biz's Thai Cucumber Beef Salad. I'm telling you folks, that right there is an award-winner! So so good. I was a bit disappointed when I reached the bottom of my bowl.

I'm taking it a bit easy today and slowly feeling a bit better. I'm also still applying aloe like I own majority stock and it seems to not be hurting my losses at all. That's very good to know as I used to apply aloe to my face every day (before starting the protocol) to control breakouts and redness. Aloe is such my friend. :)

Dinner: This afternoon I tossed together some white chili in the crockpot and just ate that for dinner. I poured off most of the broth, added my tabasco and wowza! Nice spicy stuff. I'll have an apple in a while.

I'm feeling a bit better physically, but emotionally I'm a tad perturbed. Ah well, another hot bath and an early night to bed should help that some.

See everyone tomorrow!

Thanks for the kind words! I am so glad you liked it. What kind of Aloe are you using? Like straight from the plant or what? I need to do something now that the air is getting drier around these parts.

Glad your feeling a bit better, rough day emotionally for me today...kinda disappointing in so many ways.

Biz-
I'm using Aubrey's 100% organic aloe vera. It was easily found in my grocery's health section. I have, however, used just straight aloe vera I've found on drugstore shelves before when in a bind. I know - shock & horror! ;)

I'm sorry, biz. I hope you feel better as well. I totally understand your disappointment. Hopefully that will pass as soon as this crazy full moon does. :)

I hope you feel better soon Renee. I was having allergy issues too. May be one of the spices. You are still chugging strong on your protocol. I'm dying to try that apple crisp.

ROFL!

Amy-
Thanks. I am SO much better today. And thanks to my recent sunburn, I now have a cold sore. I felt it tingling yesterday and SHOULD have put my meds on it, but didn't worried that they would affect my weight loss. Silly me. When I woke up this morning & had to EEK! at myself in the mirror, I immediately put the meds on. I should have just listened to my body in the first place. Oh well.

Biz-
Good to hear it. :) I knew it would soon pass. And I was up at 4:30 this morning! There was no way I was going to weigh myself that early though. Soon soon soon, you early bird.
