VLCD Day 16

Injection #16
Loss Today: <.8>
Round 3 Loss: <20.0>
Loss Total: <63.6>

Darn! Now, don't get me wrong, I'm happy with .8 of a loss. But I was SO looking forward to possibly hitting the 220s today, and here I am at 230.0. I just know that next decade is around the corner, and the last time I was at 220, I was into those size 12s and I'm so anxious to be there again. Even though it's not my goal weight, it's a size that I feel really comfortable with, and I still have my favorite cargos waiting for me to get back there. It's one of those goals I'm itching to get to.

My menu for yesterday was:
Lunch - green apple, grilled steak & onion.
Dinner - orange, baked bbq chicken, and sliced tomato.
Fluids included 2.5L water, 3 c coffee, and 1L oolong.

Back on the subject of people noticing when you've lost weight. It's funny how people will tell me now that I look like I'm already done dieting. Trust me, I am by no means thin (especially at 230.0!), but I am over 5'10" and so my height sort of spreads everything out. I told a close friend how much I weighed and she wouldn't believe it. She said there was no way I was over 200. The main reason I'm putting this out there is that this is something I have to watch for myself. Because once I get to that size 12, I will get somewhat comfortable, especially with everyone making those sort of comments. So I'll have to push myself a bit to keep going. The good news is that I know now, with hCG, that I will be able to continue on to get back to my goal weight where I am MOST comfortable and, more importantly, MOST healthy. And it's so amazing to have that confidence in something (and yourself) to KNOW that all of that is attainable.

Yay for all of us.
