Whoo hoo!! I finally awoke to see that magical number on the scale!! I'm in a new decade and I hope to stay there and continue going downward.  I drew out the last of my solution yesterday which yielded me 4 injections.  The last 2 syringes I filled had a bit more solution that the first two because I wanted to get every drop out.  So as of this morning I only have 3 more injections to go and I can take a planned interruption for 2 weeks?? then start on sublingual.  This will be my first time ever to use HCG sublingually so we'll see how that goes.  If I got the correct math for the sublingual, I should be able to stay on another 30 days after my PI.  I really am anxious to stay on the HCG till I get as close to my "real" goal.  My body has adjusted to the VLCD and once I start to eat normally, it proves to be difficult to go back to VLCD.  The scale number may not look that great but I do. It has become more noticeable and people I know, have noticed.  Last night I did something a bit different.  I filled my usual water glass (32 oz I believe) and added some Bragg's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother, granted it wasn't all that pleasant to drink, but I did.  It was pretty diluted but you could tell it was in there.  I drank it before I went to bed.  I just did it to get some benefits from the vinegar but I don't know if it helped or not.  My goal last night was to go to bed early, very early but I finally got in bed at 9pm.  I did all my chores early too.  That was earlier than the last 3 nights but I awoke at 3am.  I managed to fall back asleep for another hour.  I can feel TOM trying to make an entrance today but so far, it hasn't shown itself.

I need to keep a better food diary but I've just been to busy to write anything down.  Since I was so tired yesterday, I ended up not cooking my chicken.  I washed the pan I was going to use but that was about it.  On my way out the door, I grabbed a packet of sweet n spice tuna.  I know tuna isn't allowed but that was the only thing I could grab so I could avoid going through a fast food restaurant.  I haven't been hungry and I probably could have just skipped lunch till I got home but I've eaten tuna before without any problems.  I didn't have a fruit with my tuna because the tuna had sugar in it, so I skipped the fruit.  It was actually pretty tasty for being flavored tuna.  Now I have a new idea to make tuna salad with a kick.  I saw it contained sugar, chili powder and paprika so that doesn't look difficult at all.  Of course, I won't be using sugar but my stevia.  I have plenty of the liquid and packets. Hmmm, I may try that combo of spices on a piece of my chicken.

I went to Wal*Mart after work today, I found some coconut milk without sugar.  I've been looking for chocolate pudding made by Great Value but I didn't find it at the Supercenter when I was there yesterday.  Luckily this store had it.  I want to bake cakes and sell them.  I just don't know how much to sell them for, LOL.  Of course, I had found some new coupons online so I had to put them to good use, LOL.  I also price matched some chicken thighs I can eat next week.  I bought some more water that I price matched too.  I found some dog biscuits at this store that I couldn't find at the Supercenter as well.  I may have to go back and buy what's left of them because I noticed they made the new package smaller (4 lbs vs. 5lbs) for the same price.  Like I wouldn't notice.  My dog likes the beef basted ones so I got her some.  I found the peanut butter biscuits but they're making that package smaller too.

I'm gonna go cook my chicken now but I want steak for dinner.  What a conundrum.
