VLCD Day 23

No Injection

Round 3 Loss: <22.6>
Loss Total: <66.2>

Things were insanely busy this weekend so I didn't have time to update this blog o' mine. I did want to say a big thank you to all of you who chimed in on my planned interruption. Your thoughts definitely helped me wrap my head around what I was going to do.

I did, in fact, stop injections on Saturday, Jan 26th. That was my 21st injection. I'll start VLCD + injections up again on Monday, Feb 4th. We'll see how this all works out.

I'm still tracking my weight, and I've stalled & been at the same weight since Friday. I think this might be due to the fact that I'm ovulating. I have to say, I'm glad I had already decided to take this break before the stall happened. My mind is definitely in a better spot and that 'stall' isn't fretting me one bit. Now, if I had been looking at another straight 20 days of VLCD, I might be more concerned.

One last quick bit of news. Yesterday, we all went out to see Cloverfield and as I was getting ready I saw the size 12 jeans I recently purchased calling my name and thought for a laugh I'd try them on and see how much farther I have to go to get into them. They totally fit and I wore those suckers right to the movies. I couldn't believe it. So much so that I caught myself checking out my rear end, legs, etc. at every window we passed, even the cars in the parking lot. I haven't tried on my favorite size 12 cargos yet, but I'll definitely have to pull those out of my 'skinny' storage over the next week or two.

I took my measurements for this short round and the most impressive numbers came from my waist and hips where I lost 3.5" and 3" respectively. In only 20 days. On my third round. Unbelievable.

I'll try to keep updating as I can during this break. Happy Monday to everyone.

Lol. Checking yourself out in the cars. I can totally relate. When I'm walking to my classes I'm always looking for a reflection of some sorts. I think the weirdest surface I tried to check myself out was glossy marble. Congrats on those 12's. I have a pair of size 12 inspiration jeans hanging on my door that I hope to fit in. I think their 12, it's what it says but it feels like a 10 or 8 (the measurements are kind of like that on the levi's)

You will do so much better with a little break and be back soon enough!!

Thanks for all the kind words of encouragement. I love reading my comments and it is such a "boost" to my weight loss.

You always know the right thing to say!
