Morning! Another 2lbs gone this morning bringing the total to a very exciting 9.6lbs in 3 days! You can’t see it but I’m doing a happy dance in my chair right now. 😀 The other reason I’m totally stoked is that I’m only 0.5lbs away from being UNDER 300lbs… My first personal milestone.
Breakfast: Large Mug Bigelow Mint Medley Tea w/ 9 drops clear Stevia
Lunch: Spring Green Salad w/ Chicken Tenders, Strawberries, Roasted Garlic and Mustard vinaigrette & 1 Grissini
Dinner: Meatballs and Tomato Sauce w/ 1 Jonagold Apple
Last night I whipped up a trial recipe of P2 friendly Chili that I’ll be testing today for lunch. I don’t know how I hadn’t thought of it before but I was looking through some web pages yesterday and I had a “duh” moment. I’m super excited to try it out today and I’ll definitely share the recipe if I’m happy with the results. I also found another website with several salad dressing recipes because I wasn’t happy with how the roasted garlic mustard dressing turned out either. I guess I’ll have to just keep trying until I find something that works. I had an idea for a strawberry vinaigrette yesterday and I think I will definitely try that next. It would be so much easier if I could just use Balsamic *pout*. I’m not willing to upset my results for that though. Worst case I’ll just give up on the salad idea and eat other things.
Enjoy your day!
I love the smell of weight loss in the morning. Day 1 of VLCD yielded a 4.2lb loss! WOO HOO!!! It’s so super exciting to see that I received very close to the same results as the first round. Hopefully that continues. My menu for yesterday is as follows:
Breakfast: 1 large mug Bigelow Mint Medley Decaf Tea w/ 8 drops Clear Stevia
Lunch: Mixed Spring Green Salad w/ Chicken Tenders, Strawberries and “Honey Mustard” & 1 Grissini
Dinner: French Onion soup, 1 Navel Orange & 1 Grissini
3+ liters of water
I am going to keep working on different salad dressing recipes. The Honey Mustard was quite a bit spicier than I expected it to be and while it did add some flavor dimension to the salad it wasn’t the profile I was looking for. Last night while I was cooking my french onion soup I roasted my husband some red skin potatoes and threw in a head of garlic so I have an entire head of roasted garlic with which to create some sort of deliciously sweet roasted garlic dressing of some kind. I’m thinking I will probably like that a lot more than the honey mustard.
I’m also happy to report that my energy is back, no headaches yet and I’m clear-headed! Have a great day!!
Today is my first day of VLCD and I couldn’t be more ready for it! Yesterday was absolutely painful yet again… I ate to capacity for the entire day and ended up practically making myself sick. I had terrible gas the whole night and finally ended up sitting in the bathroom for most of the evening. I know, TMI… but, really… it just goes to show how much my body has changed since doing my first round of HCG. I’m excited to see what kind of losses I see tomorrow. I certainly hope that I experience the same successes I had on the first round but, we shall see. I know the first day I saw pretty dramatic results but it was mostly just taking off what I had gained in loading. The funny part is that even with loading 3 days instead of 2 I still only gained 4.6lbs. It’s just crazy what I had to do to myself to get that weight on too.
I’m sipping on my hot tea and remembering how much I enjoyed this part of my daily routine I’m so excited to be back in the swing of things. I prepped my chicken salad last night and I’m hoping that it tastes as good as I want it to… I’m unsure about the “honey mustard” dressing and I think I added too much water to it… it’s awefully runny. We’ll just have to wait and see… I’ll post the recipe as soon as I know it’s good… 😉
40 days of VLCD to go! 😀
Good morning all,
Today is my last day of loading. I’ll be grocery shopping and prepping my VLCD food for the week and I’m so excied. Last night we went to All You Can Eat Sushi and I ate until I almost popped. It was CRAZY! The funny thing is that Friday night we went to Golden Corral and I definitely ate until capacity then and I only gained 0.2lbs Friday… yesterday I managed to pack on 2lbs though… but I’m pretty sure a lot of that was water weight because we went to the park yesterday and I wasn’t drinking nearly enough water for the activity I was doing. I have a slight headache this morning but I suspect that it has a lot to do with the fact that I got a sunburn yesterday. 😦 It’s going to be a busy day… may as well get started early.
Have a great Sunday!!
I just ordered another 5 pack of HCG which will get me through 3 more rounds. I still have another vial from my last round because I bought 3 but, with everything going on with the FDA I guess I’m just a bit paranoid that I might not be able to get it in the future. I stuck with the Corion since I had such good luck with it last time. If you’re interested in knowing the website I got it from please send me a private message and I’ll be happy to give you the info. I’m taking sublingual HCG at 125iu 2x per day as per protocol. My Dr is aware that I’m following the protocol however, I’m ordering it myself to cut down costs. She’s been checking on me periodically just to make sure I’m staying on track.
Going to be a busy weekend and my hubby is waiting to spend time with me so, I’ll write more later. I was just excited to share my purchase! YAY!
