VLCD Day 9


Ooh baby…almost in the double digit VLCD days.  That’s so cool!  I’m down another .4 lbs this morning which is awesome.  I drank some more special tea (lol) and hope to be down even more tomorrow.  I’m trying grilled shrimp tonight for dinner which is a good thing.  I’m not a huge fan of the seafood, but I’m so desperate for something new that shrimp is starting to sound good.  It’d be nice to learn to like fish and shrimp so that after I’m off the diet I can continue eating them.  They’re so healthy!

Breakfast:  Cranberry Pomegranate Green Tea (Kind of non-protocolish but oh well…plain green tea is gross)

Lunch – More chili with a little bit of cottage cheese.  Seriously, I can’t get enough of that stuff it is SO good.  One apple.  A few teeny pickles.

Dinner:  Garlic Shrimp and grilled onions.  Not sure what the fruit will be yet.  **UPDATE**  I cooked the shrimp and it was delicious.  I ate one.  I went to peel the shell off the other shrimp and noticed it had legs on it.  I examined the rest of my shrimp and they all had LEGS on them.  I almost threw up.  Needless to say, the kids ate the shrimp, and I had to make do with what I had defrosted – an extra lean hamburger patty.  That makes beef two times today but it’s better than eating shrimp legs!

I’m close to 12 lbs lost.  I’m setting these really tiny 5 lb goals right now.  The whole 40 lbs seemed so far away and unattainable.  I can do 5 lbs though!

    You’re doing so wonderful! I’m proud of you! You’ve kept it up for over a week now. YAY! I have to do 5lb goals too. If I think about how much more I have to lose I start to feel discouraged. I’ll definitely have to make that chili. Esp since when I start p2 again it’ll be getting cool outside.

    Keep up the great work. Ü
