happy new year!

Happy New Year to everybody! It's been awhile since I posted. Right about Christmas eve I realized I had been on a stall for about 4 days. Well an apple day wasn't in the question. I ate dinner on Christmas eve with my family and had small portions of the food available. The same went for Christmas dinner at the inlaws. Well I was up 3 pounds after that. Ok...I knew what I was doing so I wasn't gonna stress it. Now here it is a week later and I just weighed in at 153.2 this morning. Still struggling to get back below where I was before. I only have a week left and I really want to hit the 140's. The amount of food and temptations around the house and everywhere I go is killing me! I knew if I went off the strictness of the diet plan it would be harder to stick to it afterwards. Boy was I right. Next time I would do it differently....but I won't torture myself now. Move on...give this last week my best effort and look for a loss.

vlcd 25

Wow...what an incredible journey. Today I am at 151.2....that is another pound released since yesterday. Not only am I releasing pounds but so many inches. I checked in at the doctor yesterday and lost inches everywhere. I should have written it down, maybe I'll try to get it today so I can post it.

I am really noticing some crazy things ... I can really see my clavicles and yesterday I thought I caught a glimpse of my ribs. Of course they are still covered with a layer of fat but when I stretched out just right I could see them! wooohoo! I thought they were long gone. My clothes are far too big. This is crazy stuff. I have 15 more days of injections and I am really hoping for another 10lb release. I know that's a stretch, but I can dream! I mean who would have dreamed that I could release 16 lbs in 25 days.

Wishing big releases for all.

vlcd 23 & 24

Ok..Saturday I spent most of the day in the car and only had 2 oranges. Of course Iwasn't hungry so that wasnt an issue, but I got home so late I only had time for one meal. I figured I would have a big loss because of this and I was right, I released 1.8 lbs on my sunday weigh in. So I figured I would gain some back on Monday but only .2 lbs. So big loss for me this weekend..released 2 lbs.

vlcd 21 & 22

Released .2 yesterday and today .8! Still sticking to my average of .5lb a day. I am 153.8 this morning! That is crazy! It seems like 159 was a dream and I couldn't believe I was that, now already I have my sights set on the 140's! It seems as when I stick with fish or chicken I have better releases. I still think I have to switch it up though or I will never make it another 3 weeks. So steak it is tonight!

vlcd 20

Okay I just passed by 155 today. I really didn't believe it since I am constantly 1/2 lb, but of course I had to step on the scale 3 times to prove it and it was the same every time. I have not been this weight in forever! This is so exciting, my clothes are too big and I feel so much thinner.

The candy, cookies and treats are pouring in at work. So far so good. Luckily we got a beautiful fruit basket today with oranges, apples and grapefruit! My lucky day! So I have one of each in the fridge at work.

My husband said the funniest thing today. He always asks me how I'm feeling, what I've lost. So we were talking and he says --well if I do this you'll have to give me the shots. I thought that was crazy! That means he is throwing the idea around in the back of his mind. I'm a believer! This is an incredible cure to that dreaded fat!

Happy big releases to all!

vlcd 19

I can't believe I am half way thru my injections. I really think this has passed so fast. My cravings aren't nearly as bad today as they were yesterday. I was down .4 today. Heading in the right direction! If I can lose at least a .5lb a day for the rest of this round it will be another 10 lbs.

A couple huge things in the past few days. This weekend I was able to comfortably fit into a pair of jeans I have never worn before! My friend gave them to me last year because they were too big for her (nice). Well I pulled them out of the closet and they zipped right up. Yea! Even after working out for a 1 1/2 years I couldn't get into them! Then yesterday at work the girls were teasing me that my scrub pants were huge and I had lost my butt. So when I stopped at the store last night I grabbed a pair of small scrub pants and brought them home. They fit great! A SMALL! I know they run a little big, but seriously I have never fit into a size small in anything my entire life! I am so loving this journey!

vlcd 18

No weight loss today. Not too stressed about it, I figure its my body catching up with me, or it could be my TOM. I think both are playing a role. PMS is kicking in hard. Last night everything irritated me! I mean everything. Then today I really would like to eat everything in sight. I ate 6 melba toasts! Ok, I figure it was that or the bag of cheetos sitting on the fridge calling my name. Then my husband made chili dogs for dinner. Not even something I really enjoy but my mouth was watering for some chili! AAaaahhh! I took one bite to satisfy my craving. Otherwise I thought the evening could only get worse. I actually made my husband watch me to make sure I only took one bite then he immediately put it away. How ridiculous this sounds! I hope TOM doesn't hold me up too long, I really have another 10 I would love to get rid of before I end this round.

Til next time!
