VLCD Day 6


Down .8 lbs this morning.  I freaked myself out by weighing myself after I ate dinner last night.  Then I freaked myself out by telling myself that I wasn’t going to lose any weight if I didn’t get right to sleep.  I’m surprised I fell asleep at all under that pressure.  But I woke up and the sun was shining and the birds were chirping, and I was .8 lbs lighter than I was yesterday.  That’s 9.6 lbs today.  That’s only .4 lbs away from the 10 lb mark.  If I can get to the 10 lb mark tomorrow, I will have lost 10 lbs in 6 days.  I still have to say that I’m amazed that I’m not weak and starving all the time.  Yes, I get hungry.  Sometimes I’m really hungry, but never anything that I can’t deal with, and every day my stomach shrinks up a bit and I’m not as hungry as the day before.  Every day it gets easier and easier to stick to only 500 calories per day.  Sometimes I enter the food I eat into my online food log and am surprised that I’m not starving, yet have only eaten 426 calories all day.  I know that means the HCG is working.  Thank you Erica for showing me this!

Breakfast – Coffee

Lunch – Iceberg Lettuce with a bit of chopped onion, and I made dressing by blending some cottage cheese and salsa.  It tasted just like taco salad (that’s how sad and underworked my tastebuds have been…lol).  I also had an apple and some pickles. 

Dinner – 1 egg & 3 whites scrambled with salsa.  Sorbet for dessert.  Probably not going to have a veggie tonight because all I have is cucumbers and celery and I’ve had so many cucumbers lately that they make me want to barf.  And celery makes me want to barf anyways.
