R3P2D9V6 Any Loss Is A Good Loss

Round 3 Phase 2 Day 9 VLCD 6
0.25ml (125iu) HCG SQ injection # 9
Starting Weight on 03/26/2012: 174.8
Yesterday's Wt: 166.4
Today's Wt: 165.8
Today's LOSS/GAIN: -0.6lbs
R3 Total Loss to Date: -9.0lbs

I didn't think I would lose anything since I'm on day 9.  I thought I would stall since I usually do around this time of the round.  I'm happy I lost something.  I had a shrimp salad from Costco for lunch along with an apple. It was basically some cooked shrimp over some Romaine lettuce with grated Parmesan cheese.  It does come with some dressing but I omitted it. Dinner consisted of "pan fried" chicken, cucumber and grape tomato salad.  I count the tomatoes as my fruit so no apple for this evening.  I took a good nap after I arrived from work.  Yes, today has been pretty boring but it is nice after a hard week of work.

I saw my "man" at work today but he chose not to speak to me.  Better for me since apparently he remembered, this morning, about the incident over a week ago.  I hate that I allowed myself to become his victim and I'm trying to change that but it is proving very difficult. 

I have a meeting tomorrow for our Kegler bowling club but I really don't wanna go.  I must if I want to participate in the upcoming tournament.  We'll see how I feel in the morning.  I will need to get up early to water my poor palm trees because it is suppose to get really windy in the afternoon, fun!!

R3P2D8V5 Shopping Is Dangerous

Round 3 Phase 2 Day 8 VLCD 5
0.25ml (125iu) HCG SQ injection # 8
Starting Weight on 03/26/2012: 174.8
Yesterday's Wt: 167.4
Today's Wt: 166.4
Today's LOSS/GAIN: -1.0lb
R3 Total Loss to Date: -8.4lbs

I'm getting much closer to my LIW from Round 2 in roughly 5 days of VLCD and I've lost all that I gained during loading. This makes me very happy.  I was going to call in sick to work today but decided to go ahead and go in.  Big mistake.  I should have stayed home.  Another department was covering for the graveyard shift and what a mess they left, ugh!!  Needless to say, I was able to take a 1/2 day, which meant I got to leave at 9am.  I stopped by Wal*Mart to get some cleaning supplies, then fueled up at Costco, picked up a few things too at Costco.  Then off to Albertson's I went.  They have an awesome sale this week.  Meat, chicken and tilapia fish were all buy one get two free.  Can't beat a deal like that.  The dozen eggs were on sale too for 99 cents.  Oh, and I bought some lottery tickets too.  Worth a shot. After arriving home, finally, to my amazement, there was no room in my fridge or freezer.  I managed to get everything in somewhere so everything is put away now.  Costco is the one that got me though.  I bought some Gala apples, my favorite "crackers", a shrimp salad, seaweed chips, some huge beefsteak tomatoes, pink Himalayan sea salt and some wipes for work.  It sure added up quick.  I still need to stock up on cat and dog food.  That all was just this morning but now I'm home and don't plan on going out again, hopefully.  I have a lot of work to do around the house but don't have the will to do anything.  I have the energy just not the mindset or the will.

R3P2D7V4 Going down!

Round 3 Phase 2 Day  7 VLCD 4
0.25ml (125iu) HCG SQ injection #7
Starting Weight on 03/26/2012: 174.8
Yesterday's Wt: 169.4
Today's Wt: 167.4
Today's LOSS/GAIN: -2.0lbs
R3 Total Loss to Date: -7.4lbs

Well another nice drop and I didn't take those oil containing supplements.  I know better now.  I'm having trouble falling asleep at night so I struggle to get up at 4am.  I like that HCG seems to give you some energy but it may be the clean eating that helps more than anything.  I did take a nap yesterday but it was worth it.  I didn't take measurements (again) but I can feel the difference already in my clothes and my fingers aren't as pudgy either.  I did a lot of walking today.  I had to go to HR and since I was on that side of town, I stopped by Costco too.  I exchanged some allergy pills and they were kind enough to refund my money, cash!! What's better than that? I spent it right away though because I wanted a different allergy pill.  I bought some organic, gluten-free "crackers" and Romaine lettuce, sorry rabbits, but this lettuce is for me!! I stopped by the bank too but they weren't very helpful with the issue I had.  It didn't hurt to ask though because you just never know.

I saw my "man" today but he didn't confront me about what happened on Saturday, so good.  He tries to avoid me now as to not confront me, I guess.  I just hate that I fell for all his lies and bullshit, just so that he turns around and does it to someone else.  I wish her luck or hope she opens her eyes to his deceit before she gets hurt too.  I only wish that it would turn around and bite him in the ass instead.  Karma isn't my friend right now, so I pray for myself to heal.

R3P2D6V3 New Lesson Learned

Round 3 Phase 2 Day 6 VLCD 3
0.25ml (125iu) HCG SQ injection # 6
Starting Weight on 03/26/2012: 174.8
Yesterday's Wt: 170.8
Today's Wt: 169.4
Today's LOSS/GAIN: -1.4lbs
R3 Total Loss to Date: 5.4lbs

Hmmm. I thought I would see another huge drop like I normally do when I start Phase 2 but not last night.  I had beef and tomatoes and an apple for a snack.  Nothing off protocol, however, I did take 2 of my new supplements but they contained oil.  I'm gonna say that was the culprit. The other supplement was in tablet form so that should be okay.  Let's see what tomorrow holds.

I'm still having issues with my "man".  Unfortunately I will have to see him tomorrow unless he leaves work before I do, hopefully that will be the case.  Since I know that he is already seeing someone new, I have a feeling he's going to confront me about it.  Only time will tell.  Till tomorrow.

R3P2D5V2 Nice Drop!!

Round 3 Phase 2 Day 5 VLCD 2
0.25ml (125iu) HCG SQ injection #5

Yesterday's Wt: 174.8
Today's Wt: 170.8
Today's LOSS/GAIN: -4.0 lbs
R3 Total Loss to Date: 4.0lbs

Woot, woot! That's what I like to see!! Even though I had a 4am weigh in, it still looks good and feels great!! Let's see what tomorrow holds. I noticed I have to control myself because I am so used to eating snacks of almonds or something protein rich. I caught myself today reaching for the almonds, then I remembered VLCD!! Phew!! I'm still feeling a bit down from something that came to light over the weekend. So I am still trying to deal with that, basically, MEN!! I need to find myself and love myself before I allow him to control my life and win. I need to concentrate on my physical self and mental self. The physical part seems to be the easiest right now. I've dedicated myself to researching JUDDD, Paleo and ice therapy. Also my supplements finally arrived, unfortunately I'm not able to take some of them because they contain some type of oil, darnn!! I'll have to wait 60 days before I can take some of these but what the heck, they were on special so I got them. Now they will just wait for me. By the time this round is over, I will have forgotten what half of them are for, LOL.

Let's see what tomorrow holds for me. More losses, less drama!!!

Today's Wt: 174.8

R3 Total Loss to Date:

Woke up this morning to yesterday's weight and after reviewing my journal, I have gained back everything from Round 2. Seems Round 2 was a wash. I hope it comes off easily within the next week, sheesh. Yesterday I polished off some cottage cheese with fruit cocktail, double stuf Oreos, Birthday Cake Oreos, zucchini & yellow squash with cheddar cheese, butter and coconut oil with 3 eggs, popcorn with hot sauce, pretzel M&M's, a large kefir smoothie with strawberries & protein powder. Who knows what else. I felt horrible and this morning I am extremely swollen. I awoke to numb arms and fingers. May the flush begin!!! I know I'm gonna start peeing like crazy in a bit after my morning coffee and supplements kick in.

I'm a bit sad but hopefully it will be gone soon. I think once I start losing all this added weight, I will feel somewhat normal again, physically and emotionally. Of course, this part has to do with a male I was seeing a few months ago but that's another blog!! I found some inspirational quotes on Facebook so I hope those will help me through the next few days. I definitely don't need the depression right now it just messes with my mind.

0.25ml (125iu) HCG SQ injection # 3

Yesterday's Wt: 172.2
Today's Wt: 174.8
Today's LOSS/GAIN: +6.2 lbs
R2 Total Loss to Date: ???

Today is my official VLCD 1, obviously I did a good job of loading. I did such a good job of loading that I managed to gain all my weight back that I lost during Round 2!! Friday I purchases some tacos that I knew would be off limits while on protocol and had plenty of Oreos!! Yesterday, I ate Mexican sweet bread, 2 Carl Jr.'s six dollar burgers, another order of tacos, Doritos, Fritos with sour cream. Doesn't look like I ate a lot but I feel like a beached whale.

After mixing my new batch of HCG for this round, I calculated it to be 40 injections worth. I'm hoping after I complete the injections, I can switch to sublingual and continue for another 20 days. I recently applied for our local police department (again) so I hope I make it this time. I psyched myself out the first time around so let's see if I don't self sabotage myself again.

Wish me luck everyone both on my journey through the protocol and through this process of joining the academy.


After much debate and realizing I will be doing 40 days, I decided to load an extra day. I feel it will be necessary. So I've polished off a bag of leftover double stuf Oreos and some Birthday Cake Oreos. I had a kefir strawberry smoothie this morning because my grains revived quickly after being shipped in the mail.

Phase 4 Finally!!

Yesterday was my first official day of P4 and I'm happy to report that I have been able to stay within my 2 pound over/under window, whoo hoo!! Today I did indulge in some Mexican food, gorditas with rice and beans. I must admit they were delicious. Dinner was a small steak with a side of creamed spinach mixed with quinoa. I have begun to enjoy quinoa. Ok, I'm getting side tracked. My LIW was 165.8 and I awoke today at 4am, after a huge meal yesterday to a surprising 166.4!! My weight yesterday was 167.2, day before that was 168. Wow, that was a total shocker for me. Yesterday's meal consisted of 2 petite steaks, Mexican squash in butter, quinoa, brussel sprouts in butter sauce and 1/2 an avocado. I didn't feel stuffed, weird huh? Breakfast was a homemade juice/smoothie. I'm sure this is all jumbled but I'm going by memory because I'm horrible at writing things down with my ADHD. I try to behave in my eating during the week, but Saturdays, or Faturdays, as Dr. Oz calls them, I really indulge in Mexican pastries, pizza, anything that I've been craving all week, etc. So on Sundays, I'm not extremely hungry so it is easy for me to do a correction day or just a protein day. Protein days are much easier since I can have some eggs for breakfast and/or lunch then chicken, fish or steak for dinner with P3 safe veggies.

Monday was a very good day for me. I went to the post office to pick up my package which contained what I need to continue with this progression. Then I received a phone call, which I missed for cleaning with my mp3 player on, but they left a message. It was a call stating I had won a $50 gift certificate from a contest I entered back in January. At first I couldn't recall, then I remembered because she stated all she had was my phone number because I had submitted my entry via text. That's when I remembered. I called her back the following morning to give her my information so she could mail it out to me. She made me laugh because she stated she had called several people and they were hesitant to give her their information, so they lost out on their free $50 gift certificate and coupon for a free box of their product. Overall, it has been a good week but at this very moment, I can feel TOM knocking on my door, errrrgh!!!

Let's see what tomorrow holds!!!
