VLCD Day 34

Injection #31
Loss Today: <1.0>
Loss Total: <30.8>

I hit 30 pounds! It's really good to see that number. I can't believe in just 33 days I've lost 30 pounds. And without being hungry at all. Unbelievable!

I've been putting some more thought into when I'm going to stop this phase 2. I have about 9 more injections on the 40 injections schedule. This would put me wrapping up injections around Oct 13th or so. I might, however, see how I feel at that time and continue on for a couple more weeks. I feel wasteful to just toss out the rest of my mixed hcg and if I can continue on, that would give me a 3 week phase 3 before I start my next round 2 - and load on Thanksgiving! Like I said, though, it really depends on how I feel. If I need a break, I'm taking a break. I'm certainly not going to push my luck.

More later...

Lunch: I realized this morning that I had (once again) forgotten to take something out to thaw. I had remembered to take out some frozen roasted tomatoes and ground turkey to make spaghetti sauce for the kiddos later, but for me - nada! Sooo, I decided to have soup for lunch. I made cinnamon curry chicken soup with a grissini on the side. Yum-my!

Dinner: Tonight, the boys & I stopped at the sushi place for them to have one of their first take-out dinners since I've been on protocol. One of the things I always get there is their fresh crab salad. It is so incredibly good. So, I came home and made my own version of spicy crab salad- and it was scrumptious! The only thing it usually comes with that it was missing was sesame seeds, so I replaced them with crumbled grissini. It was so light & refreshing & perfect!

Besides that, my foot had a run-in with the boys' rocketship hamper and I think I might have a broken toe. Or sprained. Or just freaking hurt! It's throbbing, I can't really bend it, I can't walk on it, and it's looking like I might have to slip myself an ibuprofen or two before I head to bed. Time to go put on some ice. Ouch!

Congratulations on your 30 lbs!! I'm happy dancing for you!! You're success is outstanding!

That would be so cool to load on Thanksgiving!! Will Christmas holidays present a problem? Would you just stay on the P2 diet during the Christmas holidays? Thanks.

Renee said...

Thank you! I'm just attempting to follow your incredible footsteps!

Thanks! I'll dance right along with you. :)

Here's what I'm thinking-
Start loading on Thanksgiving and the day after - since it really is a two day event. :p
Then only do the 23(26) shortened phase 2 which would end somewhere around a week before Christmas. This would put me on phase 3 over Christmas. Christmas won't be as hard for me food-wise, I don't think. Anyhow, I would stay on phase 3 for 3 weeks and then start loading again on my birthday which is in the 2nd week of January. I really would hate to take off so much time between Thanksgiving and Christmas so if I can squeeze in a shortened phase 2, I would love to do it - that should at least get off an extra 15-20 pounds in between the holidays. AND means I should be halfway to my goal by the end of the year! I hope it all works out. Keep in mind, this could change another 42 times before the time even gets here. LOL! I may end up staying on the regular 40 inj. phase 2 over the holidays if I feel I really don't want to stop. SEE! I'm switching it up already. LOL! I'll keep you posted. :)

WOW 30 lbs is quite the accomplishment! Congrats on your success! You are well on your way!! GO GIRL!!

That is a very smart plan! It's great how you can fit your birthday in with the loading - LOL! How cool. And it would be so awsome to have reached that half point by the end of the year! Very exciting. I too was thinking that I didn't want to wait 2 mos (until after Jan) to start a 2nd round. I might do the same thing!

Renee, do you eat fruit?

Renee said...

Thank you very much. I appreciate that.

Yes, I eat my fruit twice each day. Usually an apple, but I often switch it up with strawberries or an orange.
