R2 Day 4 - Motown "Mollie" Back Again....Doin' a Little East Coast Swang :-)

Weight: 133 pounds - Waist: 35 inches

So, here I am! Back again. I'm not going to write about why I didn't post for a while, I just needed a break. I apologize to anyone who cared that I was missing. :)

Now, on to more important things. Today is day 2 of the VLCD (very low calorie diet), and I'm psyched because I lost 2.5 pounds yesterday. My P3 was really easy, maintained my weight no problem. I started Round 2 at .5 lbs up from my LIW. I've never felt better in my life. I really do believe that, for me, this program has been life-changing. I'm more confident, more energetic, more athletic, and am really game for anything at this point. It's amazing what a difference 15 lbs can make.

I also realized that last time, I was measuring my waist wrong, which means two things: 1. I was actually quite a bit larger than I thought to begin with, and 2. I wasn't quite as small as I thought at the end of R1. Oh well, new round, new measurements! I decided that this round I would measure a lot more too. My current measurements are as follows:

Waist - 35 inches
Chest - 35.5. inches
Thigh - 24 inches
Calf - 14.5 inches
Ankle - 8.5 inches
Upper Arm - 12 inches
Hips/Butt - 39.5 inches

I won't lie, though, yesterday was a hard day. I was not hungry at ALL. I only ate 1 hard boiled egg and 2 egg whites and 5 strawberries. Not very many calories at all. I took the appetite suppressant that the doc gave me, because last time I was so hungry during the first 2-3 days of the VLCD, so that may have been why. I was exhausted by about 3:00 pm yesterday afternoon, so I left work at about 4:15, came home and slept from 5:30-8:00, then again from 10:45 last night to 8:00 this morning. I feel a lot better now though. I just don't have any food that's P2 kosher in my house right now, so I'll need to go shopping after work. Bobby, Eddie, Renee and the gang have their soccer game tonight, and the Revolution have their first home game this weekend! Woo hoo!

Well, it's off to work now.

Have a satisfying day! (and if you're in the Boston area, stay dry!)
