Yes, I'm back!! I started my injections on Saturday and loading. Surprisingly, yesterday I did not feel hungry and I had to force down my hot dog and smoked sausage as well as some chile con queso with Doritos. Sounds like a broken record right? So today is my first VLCD and I'm already deviating but I can count it as a 3rd day of loading right? Excuses, excuses, I know. I've been enjoying my bowling but I can tell I'm retaining lots of water and my fingers are either just swollen or getting fat because I can't get them in the ball but that will all change this week, right? My daughter started school on Thursday so I've been dealing with that as well. I haven't had any epiphanies yet but we all know that's coming soon. I cut my own hair yesterday and colored it so it feels like a new beginning all the way around. I gave myself the injection in my thigh yesterday and it didn't hurt but I hit a vein and my thigh swole up. I thought it would go away but by the afternoon you could see the huge lump it left. I put some ice on it and that helped tremendously. I don't have a bandage to wrap it with and that would help to add pressure but I don't have one.

Listen to me just rambling on, I shall update some more tomorrow!!
