R2 VLCD Day 41

Weight - 166.2

Excuse me while I take a moment or two or three and pound my head against the wall.  This week so far has been a total wash.  The scale just doesn't want to cooperate.  I got out of the house for most of the afternoon so my liquid consumption today is not up to par.  I also decided to increase my protein today, do an egg/eggbeater scramble this morning and see if that makes a difference.  I've got 11 more days to get down 5 or 6 pounds.  Before that would seem like a no brainer.. this week, not so much.

I do have some happy news..   I decided to hit up a good sale and snag a few smaller casual tops.  I always tend to go on the baggy side because I detest my 'back fat' and it showing in something too fitting.  I've been wearing XL shirts mostly.  Heck, I've even been hanging on to my XXL Old Navy shirts.  Well today I grabbed a couple of styles in both a large and medium.  Opted on the mediums all the way around.  What I give up in showing on the back is made up for by how thin they look in the waist.  Can't wait to wear one of them tomorrow with the family around and see what they say.

*** Btw.. if you are looking for a quick chicken meal, at Costco in the cases with the cold cuts, etc they have Kirkland brand Grilled Chicken Breast Strips in two 16 ounce packages.  They are actually a Foster Farms product labeled for Costco.  84 grams cooked weight is 110 calories and I've found that usually when I bake 100 grams  of chicken (not too dry) the final cooked weight ends up right about that. The only deterrent to using them full time is the sodium content.  At 390 mg per serving, it's not as good as if you baked your own naked chicken.  But then who doesn't season their chicken with at least a bit of sodium and 1/4 tsp of salt is 500 mg.. so maybe they aren't all that bad after all.

  1. Ugh! So frustrating when the scale won't budge. I was having the same problem and stopped at 36 days b/c I was gaining and losing the same 3 lbs for over a week. My Dr. said that some start being immune to the hcg effects around 30-40 days! I'll try again in 6 weeks!! You've done sooo great though!! You must be so proud!! Congrats on your committment and success!!

  2. I've seriously comtemplated stopped and going on to P3, but I'm too pigheaded. With my hcg being homeopathic there should not be the immunity issues. I'm just begging for 5 more lbs from the scale.. that's all for this round and I'd be happy.
