R3P2D4 Not Bad

Round 3 Week 1 of Phase 2 Day 4
1.0ml HCG (166.6iu) IM Injection
LIW: 168.2
Yesterday's Wt: 178.8
Today's Wt: 175.2
3.6 lbs LOST overnight

Well look at that. To be honest I was hoping for more but due to my work schedule I have to get up so early. Anyway, I am happy with the loss. I went to JC Penney's after work and bought a jacket and some hoodies (clearance is the best!). It was really cold here yesterday, the high was 43. Crazy!! When I arrived home I got on the scale and it said 178.2, I was disappointed but this morning was a surprise.

For breakfast yesterday was 1 cup of coffee w/Splenda (2 packets) and some 1/2 & 1/2, then 2 more cups(12 oz. each) of black coffee at work
Lunch was a chicken Ceasar salad from McDonald's with no dressing or croutons, 3 grape tomatoes and I threw out the carrots. Lots of water.
Dinner was cabbage and celery soup in chicken broth and more chicken, 1 whole grapefruit and more water

I know I shouldn't have had that salad but I came to work very unprepared but that salad was my best option. I wasn't really hungry but I had to eat something. I went to bed early and I was not hungry. The only problem I'm having is that I got used to the hand to mouth habit again. I kept wondering why my coffee was so lonely then I remembered I didn't have any cookies. Later when I got home, there were bags of chips everywhere to be had but I resisted. My daughter got home and I didn't know what to make her for dinner so I made her a grilled cheese sandwich. I wanted to bite into that buttery bread but I resisted and realized it wasn't worth it, especially since it was my first VLCD day. I cleaned out the fridge of fatty foods like bacon, pepperoni and froze my Gouda and Gruyere cheeses.

Today I did bring my lunch and I defrosted some chicken and fish for dinner. Not to eat both for dinner but just to have it defrosted.

Girl that 3.6 pounds is solid! I would take that anyday.

Okay so since we are telling about our shopping habits....Penney's is my WEAKNESS. I have a card...but I am careful. I get everything from them though. The clothes fit my body very well. Macy's is to flippin high and it seems the sizes run a bit smaller. Maybe its just me?

{{Hugs}} take care...

Crystal :D
