Well, here I go again.  I started enjoying food a bit too much again.  Of course, I started eating the evil white carbs, bread and sugar.  Bad, bad girl.  So now I begin again.

I tried starting and restarting for several weeks but something always came up.  The loading was fun but I kept in on, so here I go again.  Since my clothes are starting to fit a bit tight, it's time to start all over again.

Wow, I forgot to post yesterday but I am still doing horribly.  I just can't stop munching.  Yesterday was the worst because of my coworker taking those Mexican pastries to work and I couldn't resist.  Friday was no better, I had more chips with hot sauce for "dinner".  When I went to bed Friday night, it finally dawned on me as part of the reason why I can't stick to protocol, TOM!!  TOM is going to visit very soon.  So yesterday after I had about 3 pastries, 1 brisket breakfast taco, I arrived home not hungry.  Hmmm, I wonder why??  I ended up snacking on my "crackers" and polishing off the rest of the chips with hot sauce, since they're weren't that many left.  I really wanted tacos yesterday but I didn't make or buy any.  I really need to get my head back in this game so TOM better get here and exit soon, very soon.  As I stated before, I've already got it my head that as soon as I finish the "drops", I will switch over to the injections.

I went to Target on Friday because I bought some more razors since I had some good coupons for them, plus Target was giving a $5 gift card for every two razors that you purchase.  While I was reading my email, that I am so behind in, I came across an email from a couponing website that stated that the hair color was also on sale at Target and for every 2 boxes you purchased, you would receive a $5 gift card as well.  So I quickly wrote everything down and took my lunch hour.  I had to come home and pick up my Target coupons because I did not have them with me.  So I bought 4 boxes of hair color and 4 Venus razors (bonus lotion included) and used all my coupons.  I had $2 off coupons for each box of hair color plus the Target coupon for $3 off two boxes and my $4 off any Venus Olay razors.  I made out like a bandit.  Plus I received 4 $5 gift cards plus the others I had earned during the week and last week.  I have about $50 worth of gift cards now.  That will come in very handy when I am completely broke or if my daughter needs something, I can give her a few gift cards.  As I placed everything in the closet, I realized I need to have a garage sale because there is no way in hell I can use all this stuff myself.  A coworker suggested I sell my stuff at the flea market and I would probably get rid of everything fast.  That's an idea but I need to find out how much a booth runs and if its worth it.  A Facebook friend has a booth on Sunday's so maybe I can hit him up and split the cost of the booth and that would help both of us.  I must check into this.

Now, I'm going to go scour the Sunday paper for their ads and start couponing.  Also try and figure out what the hell is wrong with me and not being able to get my head together and do this protocol.  Happy Sunday everyone!!

OK so I did somewhat horribly yesterday as well.  I'm just not able to get a handle of not grazing after doing it for some time.  I know I can graze on my allowed veggies but I have been extremely lazy these past two weeks.  I'm not used to humidity, only dry heat, and we have had some humid days so I've been feeling miserable.  So yesterday I brought my chicken for lunch but forgot a veggie.  So when I arrived home, I started munching on my "crackers".  Then later I had another chicken portion for dinner.  I haven't bought any fruit so I had a small glass of pineapple orange juice, again not allowed.  I have been dropping pounds but not as quickly as if I stuck to protocol.  Since I'm doing the sublingual drops, I think mentally I'm not getting it.  So as soon as I finish these drops, I'm going to start on the subq injections.  I guess I'm just used to the injections so mentally, I can't get my head around the drops.  I will still try to eat protocol while taking these drops and maybe that will help me reset my mental state of being back on protocol.  I knew I took too long of a break so I think that may have screwed me up.  I did gain back about 9 pounds and looking in the mirror, it seems to have all gone to my upper arms!!  The don't look muscular just extremely pudgy!!  I can feel a slight tightness in my sleeves as well.  I should be more motivated but just can't get my head into the game.  Maybe once I continue on the drops, I'll be able to wrap my head around this again.

Ok, my ticker and numbers are all off so I'll just deal with it later.  I did horrible yesterday on my first VLCD.  I started out good but then started grazing.  I know cherries are not on protocol but I was not going to let 2 lbs of cherries go to waste.  I was able to grill all my chicken for the rest of the week.  I had my portion for lunch along with some asparagus.  Then later I started feeling hungry ( I think I was actually thirsty) so I started munching on potato chips with hot sauce.  Good choice right?  Then I still ate my chicken portion a bit later.  What am I going to do with myself??

My absence has been too great here.  My computer is extra slow these days.  I enjoyed my time with my daughter but now I have to get my head back into this game.  I started my drops on Sunday and enjoying my foods.  I did an extra day yesterday because I discovered a bag of potatoes that I had bought while my daughter was here, that I forgot to take with me when I took her back home.  So I enjoyed some hash browns with eggs in the morning and a potato hash for dinner.  So today, of all days, is my first VLCD.  During my absence, I bowled in a tournament.  We took second place as a team for our division so that was good.  I also had to attend a 50th wedding anniversary that same night then get up early and return to that tournament.  Needless to say, that weekend just flew by.  As a matter of fact, I'm still trying to recover from that weekend to this day.

I'm still couponing and I scored a great deal yesterday.  I went by my local Wal*Mart Neighborhood Market that I despise, and noticed they had some eye drops on clearance.  I recall seeing a coupon for them but I didn't have them with me.  I know I had kept the coupons because I thought to myself, I don't need them but just in case.  I came home and realized that I had forgotten to purchase the newspaper so I had to go back.  I found the coupons and returned.  I got the newspaper first since that was the reason for my trip there and I had 7 coupons for the eye drops.  The eye drops were on clearance for $2 and the coupon was for $2 off any drops from that brand.  So yes, I got 7 free bottles of eye drops.  I was ecstatic!!  Yes, I do use these eye drops.  After my laser surgery, these were the eye drops recommended by the surgeon to use when my eyes felt dry.  I know coworkers that also had the surgery so I may be able to make a profit off of them if I choose to sell them to them.  Before going to Wal*Mart, I had gone to Kmart to score some extra shoppers rewards.  I purchased hair color, feminine pads and tampons and body spray.  After she rang me up she told me if I spent $1.50 more, she would give me $5 off because I would be over the $50 limit.  I grabbed a couple of dollar items so that put me over the $50 and she rewarded me with the $5 off.  There was a store coupon for the hair color that made each box $4.99, limit of two but I also had a manufacturer's coupon for $5 off of two boxes, so technically I got one box free or each for about $2.50.  I also had coupons for the feminine products which were doubled with my rewards card.  The body spray was less expensive here than at Target but I had a $1 off coupon which also was doubled.  So from $50 total, it went down to about $23, so I saved over half.  The cashier was impressed and expressed to me that she needed to get a printer at home to print coupons as well.  I'm sure she's going to try and convince her husband now after seeing how much I saved.  I may have to go back after payday to score some more hair color.  During my absence, I also scored more free razors so I am stocked beyond belief.  I may have to open a garage store because I may not be able to use all of these.  Some are men's razors as well.

I know I had more to discuss but right now, I'm drawing a blank.  Maybe once all the junk clears out of my system, I'll be able to think a bit clearer.

Since I got to sleep in this morning (6am) i was lucky I didn't see a jump in weight.  I was awaken at 4am by some noise and figured it was my daughter arriving.  I didn't want to scare her so I just went back to sleep since she was just going to go to sleep anyway.  I dragged my butt out of bed at 7am and made me some coffee.  I decided to water my palm trees, wash my car and of course scour the specials and coupons for the morning.  I didn't wash my car right away so I headed to Wal*Mart to get a few things since my daughter was home.  I got home and put the ice cream away quickly then washed my car.  I was done by 10am.  I came inside, changed and made myself another cup of coffee.  I was about to sit down in the living room when I heard someone unlocking the door.  I looked and saw my daughter walking in.  I was in complete shock.  I asked her if she had gone for a walk or something and she said she was barely arriving.  I was like what?!?  I explained to her that I thought she arrived at 4am because I heard all this ruckus and noticed a item knocked over in the hallway that I thought she had knocked over when walking in the dark.  She confirmed that she hadn't been here.  WTF!!!  I asked her again because I thought she had gone to some parties last night and she said she had a change of plans and didn't go so she just came home this morning.  So I went and checked her bedroom, no one in there.  I told her they probably left when I went to the store.  Freaky!!!!  Needless to say, I'm well stocked again in more razors now even in men's!!  I can use a new razor every week for at least 2 years LOL!!  I apparently am feeling much better than I have all week because I did have some new found energy.  Now if I can just channel it to clean my kitchen, LOL.

Last night I was so tired that I really didn't do anything.  I picked up a little since I thought my daughter would arrive during the dark hours but the joke was on me.  I literally passed out when I went to bed because I heard nothing until 4am when I thought she had arrived.  This is still freaking me out!! Anyway, apparently that Spanish newspaper that usually arrives on Sunday was delivered yesterday while I was at work and since my local newspaper was in the driveway, they didn't leave one for me, bastards!!  I already helped myself to both my neighbors papers since neither one picks them up.  I will have to do my 3am walk later to collect more because there are some awesome coupons today.  I will update tomorrow on my awesome steals, I mean deals!!

I already received two texts this morning wishing me a Happy Father's Day, one from my father and one from my cousin.  I'm sure they meant well since I did raise my daughter all on my own, so yes, I am her father and her mother all in one.  That's all she needs, right?

While I was at bowling yesterday, we were hit by a massive dust storm with a few sprinkles so my car looks disgusting.  My bowling wasn't that great either.  Our team captain bought nachos, how dare him.  He shared with everyone but I only had 2 bites.  I came home and couldn't tell if we had gotten rain here at my house but there were a few puddles in the street but nothing major.  I stayed up late, ate a small rotisserie chicken leg while watching my show since it was the season finale and I finally went to bed at 11pm.  I almost didn't get up this morning when I heard my alarm clock.  My brain was thinking it was Sunday already and I almost just shut the whole alarm off and went back to sleep.  Luckily I just hit the snooze button and let my brain wake up a bit more.  Work was horrible, I got two late reports and one turned into a cluster.  I finally got a lunch break and went to Whataburger!!  I got the green chile double burger.  It was hot and fresh and I enjoyed every bite!!  Of course I enjoyed some Mexican pastries in the morning as well.  I brought some doughnuts home for my daughter and another pastry for my morning coffee.  This week is going to be tough because my daughter will be here with me all week.  I came straight home after work and started to watch a bit of television, suddenly I felt sleepy so I went to my room and laid down.  I barely woke up at 5pm, just to watch the local news.  Now I have to go and clean up a bit before my daughter comes home sometime in the early morning hours.  Knowing her, she'll probably come home when I get up in the morning.  I'm anxious to see what coupons await me in the morning. I might check the Internet for a sneak peek.   I don't have much else to report since all I've done so far is sleep.

Granted I'm not taking my doses, I'm still dropping slowly.  Probably because I stopped eating junk?  Oh, who am I kidding?  Today was really bad.  We had a serious call at work today so I didn't get to eat lunch and of course, I didn't pack a lunch.  Since everyone was tied up on this call, I had to stick around and answer phones and go through other paperwork while they responded. I found some cookies to snack on and later someone brought donuts!!   I came straight home after work and made myself a decent salad.  I had bagged butter blend salad mix, rotisserie chicken, baby carrots, mushrooms and bleu cheese dressing and bacon bits.  It was delish!!  I'm snacking on my "crackers".  I have bowling tonight so I probably won't eat dinner.  There is nothing P2 or P3 friendly at the bowling alley.

So last night after having some more rotisserie chicken and butter fried asparagus, I had a skinny cow chocolate wafer and a few Hershey's Bliss chocolate mint candies. Yes, only a few and not the whole bag like I would normally have.  TOM is finally leaving.  This time TOM visit brought quite a bit of pain.  Ever since I had my baby (19 years ago), I no longer have cramps maybe some mild discomfort once in a long while but this time I actually had cramps!!  I felt like I was eleven years old again.  My daughter was laughing and she was happy that I was suffering.  It turned out that TOM wasn't that bad, no heavy bleeding just a very mild one.  After feeling those cramps, I thought for sure this was going to be a bad one but it was very light.  Thank goodness for small favors.  Now that TOM is officially leaving maybe my anorexia will kick in and I can restart my sublingual drops soon.   Tomorrow will be tough because my partner that was out with a knee injury has returned and that means so will the Saturday Mexican pastries!!

Ok I've tried for the last 3 days to update my Ticker and it keeps reverting back to the old one.  At first I thought it was me and that I had just forgotten but I've done 3 times (again today) and hopefully this time it sticks!!

After posting yesterday, I realized how severely dehydrated I was.  I knew since Saturday because I began feeling the symptoms but chalked up to being tired from my dog barking at the neighbors all night and morning.  Looking back I now see that my water intake was horrible until I got home from work, that's when I was drinking my water.  I don't have air conditioning in my car so as soon as I get in to drive home from work, I would start to feel drained.  So I stayed home from work again today.  Last night I drank a Powerade Zero.  I nearly chugged the whole thing because my body was craving it.  I drank some more water afterwards.  This morning I had one cup of coffee and started on another Powerade Zero and water. The dehydration was also adding to my back pain because my kidneys were working overtime.  So TOM and dehydration don't mix well.  I feel much better now.  So I should be good to go back to work in the morning.  I need to pack my Powerade Zero with me.  Since TOM was also wreaking havoc for me, I didn't take my dose this morning and may have to wait a bit.  I don't think the sublingual works too well for me.  I just don't feel it does the same job as the injections.  Then again, I keep forgetting my afternoon dose.  Since I've only taken 4 doses, I will still have 28 days worth.  I just give TOM a few more days and start back up.  Or I may have to wait until after the 23rd which I have a tournament to participate in.  Ugh, such decisions!!  I will be eating Paleo/P3 style for these few days.  As I stated before, I don't think the drops or sublingual are working for me.  The only reason I've lost some weight is because I'm finally losing the water retention I get from TOM and my cravings are starting to subside.  I make a trip to Costco this morning to get a few things since my coupons arrived and I had to time to look at them.  There wasn't much to really choose from but I still got a few things.  I also got a rotisserie chicken since it was already getting close to lunch time and I hadn't eaten.  I also picked up some asparagus and baby bellos.  The apples are overpriced or at least I don't remember paying that much for them last time. I came straight home and made no trip to Wal*Mart which was on my original plan as well as Albertson's but decided against both those stores for today.  I already ate some chicken and I'm still drinking my Powerade Zero and water.  Hopefully I get better and more energetic so I can get some things done around here.  I'll start off slowly, just one load of laundry. I don't want to overexert myself, LOL.

I finally get to update my Ticker today and set my new goal.  I'm finally on my first official VLCD.  I had chicken already.  I got up late because I played hooky from work today.  My back was killing me last night and this morning.  After I awoke this morning around 7:30am, or actually got out of bed, I got a surprise.  TOM has arrived.  What an unfortunate pairing of events.  That explains my back pain, my moodiness,  also my fatigue, cravings, constipation, and headaches.  I went ahead and watered my palm trees since I didn't do it on Sunday.  I went to Wal*Mart for a few things and now I regret not going grocery shopping yesterday.  I missed out on some good deals.  I didn't spend any money yesterday except for my meal but not shopping.  Oh well, most of it was off protocol foods anyway like bacon and ice cream.  I shouldn't have it in the house anyway to tempt me so it worked out in a way.  I also don't have room in my freezer or fridge so another plus for not grocery shopping.  I need to cook my chicken for dinner and tomorrow's lunch.  Actually it will be more than that because I need to remember I can only 100gm of it.  This is all I have to report this morning.

I know it looks like a had a massive load yesterday but it's only because I had to weigh myself at 4am!!  I didn't eat all day at work because everyone kept tempting me with ideas so I figured I would have one more day of enjoyment.  I had Grandy's chicken fried steak platter for lunch and dinner.  I figured it would be my last hoorah before I really have to settle into VLCD.  I also got a cinnamon roll.  As I was driving home, I stopped my a local sandwich shop to get a Cinnabon!!  Of course my server had to tempt me even more by asking if I wanted pecans.  How was I suppose to say no to that.  Looks like she drizzled some caramel sauce on it too!!  She must have know I was starting VLCD.  I arrived home and devoured my food and fell into a food coma.  Which explains why I'm posting so late.  I did ask for 3 sides which were mashed potatoes, green beans and fried okra!!  Yes I ate my cinnamon roll from Grandy's after that meal then slipped into my coma.  When I finally awoke, I polished off the Cinnabon with coffee.  Now, I drink lots and lots of water.  I didn't make it to the grocery store today and I probably won't.  Doesn't matter, I don't have room in my fridge for anything anyway.

I promise tomorrow will be my official VLCD.

Ugh, what a night!!  I went to bed somewhat earlier.  I was texting with my daughter.  At around 2am I awoke because my stomach was upset.  I drank some water and my mouth was extremely dry.  I laid back down and awoke again at 3am.  I tossed and turned for about an hour so I finally got up and walked the neighborhood, collecting papers.  I didn't want that many but since the two that I picked up yesterday didn't have coupons, I didn't want to chance it.  I just went down my street and came home.  I drank some more water and I actually broke a sweat even though I was trying to walk slow because I didn't want to put my tennis shoes on.  Usually I walk down three streets but these coupons weren't that great except for my almond milk.  I don't have room in my fridge so I don't need that many coupons.  I found about 10 papers so that was good.  I managed to fall back asleep around 5-5:30 and dragged myself out of bed around 8.  I felt so groggy and unbalanced.  Must have been from all the junk I ate yesterday and the lousy sleep I got.  I haven't been loading like I normally do, just enjoying forbidden foods that I will not see for quite some time.  I haven't done much today but organize recyclables but was too lazy to actually go to the recycling center to cash them in.  I did call a few places but the rate was the same at most places, one place offered less so I won't be going there.  I did find a business close to my workplace but I'd be embarrassed to show up to work with my little car filled to the max with cans but I may just have to do that or wait till next Monday.  I haven't really eaten anything major today, bagel with cream cheese for breakfast, Taco Bell for lunch and dinner will be some chicken thighs.  Tomorrow is VLCD one.  Oh what fun.

I clipped coupons most of the afternoon and tried to match them up with the sales that end tomorrow, so who knows what time I'll get home tomorrow.

I've been enjoying just a bit too much eating freedom.  Since I knew I was going to start my drops today, I said, "what the hell!"  I ate bean dip with Frito's, ice cream, chips and who knows what else.  The bean dip got to to me though.  I did wake up swollen this morning so I know it was the Frito's.

I tried to get up early today but 6:40am was what I could manage.  I got my paper to check the coupons and they weren't that great.  I headed to Target to check out what they had and almost everything was a dollar more than at Wal*Mart.  I found the Softsoap that they had dropped the price on but my coupons expired on the 8th, dammit!!  Oh well.  I bought some deodorant and some Pretzel Chips that they had on clearance. While I was checking out, I realized that I didn't have my debit card.  Luckily I had cash on me.  I stopped at Walgreen's but they didn't have the Gain dish detergent scent I was looking for, neither did Target.  I came home and dropped off what I bought at Target and picked up my debit card.  I went to the Super Target to check for my oatmeal that I had coupons for.  They were 20 cents less here than at Albertson's.  I got some more deodorants.  I drove to Wal*Mart and got some razors, Gain dish soap and a tank top.  This Wal*Mart was completely out of the mascara I was looking for so I had to drive to another Super Wal*Mart.  This one had what I was looking for.  I got some more razors and deodorants.  The cashier advised me that they don't limit coupons even if the coupon states there's a limit.  I forgot I had just printed their coupon policy and it states exactly that and they'll give you money back if the coupon is of higher value than the item.  Cool, right?  I came home after that trip and starting clipping more coupons.  I decided to go back to Wal*Mart because I only had 4 coupons left for the deodorants when I thought I had a lot more but they were just stuck to others, also to return that saddle soap I bought that was too expensive.  I got more deodorant and razors.  I am going to have the smoothest legs and armpits for the rest of my life, LOL.  I also bought some frozen french toast sandwiches from a popular restaurant chain, to enjoy the next couple of days.  Needless to say, I finally mixed my drops at around 2pm today.  I took my dose so now I have to remember to dose again later.  I'm going to have to set an alarm to remind me to take them in the afternoon.  I mixed mine with raspberry vodka and sodium chloride.  I know they've changed the rules about using alcohol but its what I had and I still had ampules of the sodium chloride. I think I'm ready for P2 again.  I'm trying not to do a heavy load but just enjoy some foods I know I won't be able to have for the next 30 days and 3 weeks of P3.  Of course after I took my dose, I lost my appetite which I do like but not on the first day, rather that I worked on the third day and beyond, LOL.  I'm just praying that I get back to LIW quickly so I can start losing real weight again.

Yesterday was very eventful.  I had Whataburger for breakfast.  I had the green chile burger combo then after I got home, I had an ice cream.  I took a nap then headed out to the bowling alley.  I was planning on eating there but it got too late.  I did very good my second game, I bowled a 255!!  I believe that is my highest score ever.  After I arrived home, I saw that my "new" neighbors were gathered in their driveway.  My dog kept barking at them and she barked all night so I got no sleep until 3am.  I had to wake up in less than an hour.  I asked if I could leave work early and I did.  I went to Kmart to get some more deodorant with my doubled coupons.  I counted the coupons I have for the deodorants and I still have about 18 of them.  Sheesh!!  I drove to the Tractor Supply Store and bought my rabbit a larger water bottle.  After I arrived home, I changed and went outside to see what the neighbors had done.  I found beer cans that they had thrown at my dog, those sons of bitches!!  I threw one back and kept the rest to sell.  They threw limes too but I threw those back in their yard.  These people are disrespectful and are constantly throwing their trash in my yard and they've only been there a week.  They are nothing but a bunch of low lives and they are going to make the next year unbearable.  I just hope they didn't buy the house and are just renting so they'll leave soon.  I took a nap after cleaning their mess up and now I sit here debating what to eat.  I had a bagel and mixed berry cream cheese after my nap, but I need something more substantial.  I will hopefully grill these.  The neighbors across the street are going to have a birthday party later, so I'll have to contend with that mess later.  I really feel that I should move because of these people and I have done too much to this house to have to leave on their account.  I need some much needed positive mantra to come my way and get these people out of here.

Oh yeah, I should be mixing my drops tonight, and hopefully I remember to start them in the morning, LOL!  I'll just enjoy 2 more days of eating freedom.

If my goal was to gain weight back ASAP, I am succeeding LOL! I have been eating kinda freely plus I think TOM is lurking in the shadows so that's not helping with cravings.  I must admit I wasn't ready to tell you about everything I ate yesterday but here it is.  I had steak, scalloped potatoes, potato salad, chile con queso, tostadas, Doritos, broccoli salad, cream cheese green chile corn and bowl cake.  I was stuffed.  After I took my daughter home and I finally arrived home, I posted and fell asleep, well, it was more of a food coma that I slipped into.  So that I only gained 0.6 pounds is crazy.  I'm sure tomorrow morning's weight will reflect the true weight of all that I ate.  After I arrived at work this morning, I raided the kitchen and only found grilled chicken and some leftover sides.  I only served myself the chicken, scalloped potatoes and ranch style beans.  It took me about 3 hours to eat it all.  I even ate some coffee cake.  After work I went to Kmart and what a mess that was.  I wanted to redeem my coupon for my free Oreos with my $25.00 purchase and it would not take the coupon.  It was the first one she scanned!!  Then she tried to tell me that I could only use one for my deodorants and I had to point it out to her that it stated 4 like coupons in one transaction.  I had to go to customer service and I was there for what felt like half and hour.  The manager finally got it working but I was mad because she wouldn't let me take the double stuffed Oreos even though the coupon stated different sizes.  Whatever!!  I just wanted to get the hell out of there already.  My deodorant coupons expire on Sunday so I am trying to use them up.  Since Kmart is doubling the coupons, my deodorants are costing me 79 cents.  I will put up the register not cooperating as long as I get my double coupons.  I finally arrived home and again, I'm exhausted.  Today is trash day so I will have to do that.

As much as I hate to do this, I found another home for my Labrador.  I don't really want to give her up but I just feel bad for her that I can't spend as much time with her as I like and that I can not have her indoors.  I need Cesar Milan to help me train her to get along with my cats but I can not afford him.  I've tried myself but I lose patience very quickly.  I think at this point, it may be better if I just find her a new home.  A coworker is willing to take her but it will be very difficult for me.  Especially because I will have stipulations but I know he won't follow them.
