R2 VLCD Day 14


I saw that somebody on an HCG blog had used one slice of Sara Lee Delightful bread in place of her grissini breadsticks and had no problems with it, so I decided to give it a try last night.  I guess I had a problem with it because I woke up to a .4 lb gain this morning…boo.  Oh well, it was worth a try.  I’m still 7.4 lbs away from officially being in my normal weight range for my height.  Round two is really sucking, I’ve only lost 8.6  lbs in two weeks.  I’m starting to think that the last 16 lbs will take more than the 4 weeks that I have left on round two (if I were to do a six week round).  I think I need a break, I’m not sure if I can handle this much longer.  I may go back on my original plan of doing a three week round and doing round three after the holidays are over.  I think I need a break, both physically and mentally.  I hate being so wishy-washy.  Some days I feel like I could do this diet forever, and other days I feel like I can’t take another day of it.  I also want to quit smoking, but am afraid of doing that until after I’m done with the diet because I really don’t think I can handle both things at the same time.

Update:  I just went to look at Erica’s blog and saw her loss after TOM was over.  I know mine is somewhere right around the corner, so maybe that’s why I’m not losing much lately.  I’m not going to blame the gain on TOM though, I KNOW that was from eating that stupid bread.

    I haven’t lost much more than you so far this round. I am blaming TOM for that. Who knows if it was the bread or TOM that caused your gain. The last 4 days I’ve been eating 3 mini pretzels (total of 18 calories) twice a day instead of eating the melba or grissini breadsticks. They don’t seem to be causing a problem. Hard to say really. It’s not like the breaksticks are made out of any really “healthy” ingredients.

    Don’t eat any more sara lee bread. Hang tight and prepare for weight loss to really slow down if TOM is knocking on your door. You’re still going to want to get a full 3 week round in even if you don’t lose much more. Supposedly stabilization doesn’t work very well if you can’t get a full round it. (just what I’ve read)

    Either way, you’ve done AWESOME and you’re SOOO close to your goal. Don’t stress. ♥
