vlcd 1 & 2

Yesterday was my first vlcd. A couple times I felt physically hungry, but nothing so horrible that a cup of tea and perhaps an apple couldn't take care of.

mid afternoon melba toast
snack-apple with stevia/cinnamon (yum!)

I was really glad the weekend was over. Its so much easier to stay on track when your busy. Did a great job getting all my water in...I'm really excited to see what the scale has to say tomorrow. Definitely struggled mentally today when it would've been a time I was normally snacking. I wasn't physically hungry, but emotionally I felt like I should be eating. Should be interesting to see it this feeling gets easier over time. So I had my headache for 3 days! Towards the end of the 3rd day I felt is subsiding. Thank goodness!

Day 2--more loading!

I was up 2 lbs from yesterday. I am really not looking forward to eating all day today. I know that probably sounds crazy, but I have spent so much time learning to eat healthy that this isn't very much fun. Oh well, I can handle it. Well I continued with my headache today so I think its for sure from the hcg. From everything I read that seems to be a common occurence when you start the hcg.

Hopefully I will have some time to play with this blog thing this weekend and figure out what I'm doing! Til then...I'm off to have coffee with heavy creamer and eat some breakfast.

1st injection day!

Today was the day! It is my first day on the hcg and my first load day. I can't believe how hard it is to eat so much. I am so used to avoiding fatty-bad for you foods, that mentally it was a struggle to look for fattening foods to eat. I had a headache most of the day, not sure if its from the hcg.

I am so excited about this journey. I am starting this blog so I am able to write about my journey.
