Today is “day 2” of our Post-hCG. We are still eating the P2 VLCD, and will keep doing that one more day before officially going Phase 3 and upping our calories.
Starting Weight: 249.4 lbs
Highest Load Weight: 254.0 lbs
Yesterday’s Weight: 216.6 lbs
Today’s Weight: 215.5 – down -1.1 lb
Pre-load weight loss -33.9 lbs; post-load weight loss -38.5 lbs
I am technically supposed to be “maintaining” now, but I lost another pound! I guess I’m not going to complain about that! 🙂 Today was certainly not as hard as I thought it would be. I thought I would have a lot of cravings and start being more hungry without the drops for 24 hours. But, I haven’t been. It’s just been like any other VLCD, except I kept thinking I needed to take my drops and then I realized “oh, yeah. No drops now”.
ONLY 34 MORE DAYS UNTIL KICKOFF! GO UTES!!
Starting Weight: 187.2 lbs
Highest Load Weight: 192.8 lbs
Yesterday’s Weight: 168.3 lbs
Today’s Weight: 168.9 – Up -0.6
Totals: – Pre-load weight loss -17.3 lbs / Post-load loss -23.9 lbs
Well, I know this is normal to bounce around during the 3 day transition. Basically, my body is trying to decide where it wants to “land”. So, I’m not worried. Especially when I lost over 2 pounds yesterday.
Today I feel really wierd. I have no thirst. No hunger. No anything. My mind is in a complete fog. I forgot to drink my water. I completely forgot to eat lunch and I have no appetite to eat dinner. I’m all messed up. I don’t know what that means. ?? I guess my body is going through some sort of backwards hCG withdrawal. I know that it is very bad I didn’t nourish myself today. I am sure that will cause repercussions on the scale tomorrow! This is all a very tricky time. Doing this transitioning feels like cliff diving. We are entering completely new uncharted waters and we know there is a potential of crashing. One step (or leap) at a time, I guess. I’m just glad I’m jumping with my best friend! I love you UtahMan!
P.S. Opening Ceremonies of the Summer 2012 Olympics!
Go Team USA!
