VLCD Day 5

So only a .6 lb loss this morning, but that’s not bad at all I guess.  A little disappointing after multiple pounds lost in one day, but I knew I couldn’t lose like that forever.  I also didn’t sleep very well at all.  I was up several times for different reasons so maybe that contributed.  I want to hit the 10 lb mark so that I can feel like I did something.  10 lbs is a nice even number.

Breakfast – Coffee milk blah blah blah.  From here on out I’m just calling it coffee.

Lunch – Cottage cheese, an apple, and a single serve pack of Mt. Olive leeeetle teeeny tiny dill pickles.  The texture of those pickles is just amazing, and there weren’t any no-no’s in the ingredients list.  Yum!

Dinner – I’m going to make Chick-UN Noodle Soup.  And that’s what I’m going to call it.  I’m going to grill some chicken and toss it in some broth with some spinach that way I won’t miss the noodles.  I might even throw some onion in there just to buck the system.  I like onions on almost everything, and almost consider them more of an herb than a veggie.  If I gain 87 lbs tomorrow because I ate spinach and onions together in the same meal, then so be it!

Dessert will be more of that sorbet.  I ran to the store today and got a whole package of frozen strawberries (don’t worry…I checked the ingredients list and the only ingredient in there was strawberries) and six lemons.  I’m going to make up a big old batch of it and freeze it in a large container and just scoop it out when I want some.  I’m pretty certain that the portion size I got last night was just a little over a half cup, so I’ll probably stick to 1/2 cup to be safe. 

I want enchiladas.  With sour cream, and dripping with cheese and green chili.  That’s what my family is having and I want want WANT….

    You’re doing absolutely wonderful!!! Don’t let .6 get you down. There will be days were you lose almost nothing and the next day you’ll lose quite a bit. I’ve read many people on the hcg google group mention that when they’re not losing lbs they’re losing inches. Your body will go back and forth. Lose fat, then tighten up, lose more fat, then tighten up again. I’m soo proud of you!♥♥

    Oh man, I went on the scale to take a peek. Up one lb from this morning. Now I know that is not a bad sign since our weight fluctuates so much, and TOM could be here at any time (mine is beyond irregular), and I weighed myself after having sorbet and a big bowl of soup but still…

    On the other hand, I’m almost through day five which is about one day longer than I’ve ever lasted on a diet before. I’m in it to win it! (or lose it I should say!)

    You silly girl, NEVER weigh yourself after you’ve eaten. lol I used to do that (a few years ago) and would FREAK OUT! lol

    Congrats on the 5 days! I think the longest (prior to hcg) that I’ve dieted w/o really cheating was maybe 8 or 9 days.

    Can’t wait to hear what you lost in the morning! 😉
