I’m back…I’m so sure that many of you wondered what happened to me. Well, I have been on one week of maintenance post-HCG. Things have been going remarkably well. The first few days were a little nerve racking. I was scared that I would start picking up the weight as I added more calories into […]

Final day! Some may say that I’m throwing in the towel and calling it quits, but I expect to reach my goal of losing 10 lbs. in the morning. In all, it was an interesting adventure which has pleasantly surprised me. I will have lost 10 lbs after 11 days on the program. I felt […]

Ah, the weekend has come. With only a few more days left on vlcd, I’m more upbeat. I’m also probably accustomed to the strict regime and it’s bothering me less. Today (Friday), I went to Lucky Strike Lanes for the lunch and bowl special. Even though I’m on a low calorie diet, it doesn’t mean […]

As the days progress, I’m getting worse about updating my blog. This time I blame it on BlueHost and WordPress. All of a sudden, my blogs don’t upload photos. Not sure what happened there. Today, my server went down for some unknown reason. BlueHost said their techies were working on it, so it appears that […]

VLCD Day 5 & 6

Sorry for not posting last night. I don’t know why I didn’t…oh yeah, that’s right, I’m addicted to this new game called Dominion. We called some friends up and played it for a couple of hours. We also played Robo Rally, which is a fun game — a little bit more confusing, though. Good news […]

VLCD – Day 4

Well, this morning I woke up to some weight loss, which was good. After only measuring a 0.3 lb. different between Friday and Saturday, I was hoping for something a little bit more meaningful. Fortunately, I was! Down another 1.5 lbs. Therefore, I am down 2.6 lbs. from my starting weight, which isn’t bad for […]

VLCD – Day 3

Today, I worked in the temple, which meant an early morning. The shift itself was fine and I didn’t feel any hungrier than I normally do when I leave–which happened to be 1:20pm (7+ hours after we arrived). I definitely did miss my Panera Bread / 5 Guys routine today, but Diane said to keep […]

VLCD – Day 2

OK, two days down, ___ more to go. I really don’t know how long I will do this. I am currently planning on being done by the end of January or a few days into February. It really boils down to how much weight I lose. Two days of gorging put me up 3.1 lbs. […]

VLCD – Day 1

Well, today’s the first day of the very low calorie diet (VLCD). I must say that I woke up a bit nervous this morning. I had terrible thoughts about not eating, starving, etc. Nevertheless, I proceeded to start my regimen and had 1/2 grapefruit for breakfast along with 2 cups of water. Talk about yum. […]
