Yeah... I missed posting on day 7 and day 8. My daughter Kelly and I shop and cook for the week every 6 days, then vacuum seal and mark everything. It makes it so much easier and we have been more successful this way.

No breakfast today...
Just wasn't hungry this morning...
3 ounces of baked chicken breast and 3 ounces of Aspargus steamed with some thai basil, fresh from my garden, in the steamer. It gives the asparagus a wonderful flavor! (You can use any fresh herb you like)
A med. orange
Chili with NO beans
Most likely I'll have an apple tonight for dessert if I get hungry.
Tomorrow is weigh in day with the Doctor.
She is supervising my weight loss. I see her every week for a weigh in and a body composition scan, which tell us if I am losing, fat, water or muscle.
Down another pound today! That's 7 pounds total since August 11th 2009! The first week the weight comes off fast.. then it slows down a bit... that's ok. This is the best diet ever! You see results and that keeps you SO motivated!

I once again had my 1/2 grapefruit and Kelly had an apple and of course our
Yerba Mate or Oolong teas.
French Onion soup with 2 ounces of lean ground steak & 2 Melba Rounds
I switched to water with Lime today for a change.
Grilled steak burger with lettuce, onion and tomato
Its day three and Kelly and I are on the VLCD days, along with the Hcg. I felt pretty hungry between meals today... And I think its because I ate so much the days before... But I'm ok and haven't cheated at all. I just had my last fruit serving at 4:00, that's when I am usually hungry.

Here is what we ate today:
Breakfast: A cup of Oolong Tea
1/2 grapefruit with O calorie Truvia
Spinach and Shrimp salad with Ms. Dash/Lemon dressing
More lemon water
Paprika/garlic Grilled chicken with Grilled asparagus
Strict portion control and absolutely no oils are some of the rules of this VLCD.
Today we are preparing our bodies for the VLCD = Very Low Calorie Diet, by eating more fat in our diet than we usually would. Also we are eating foods that we really enjoy, because the VLCD food list is very restricted. By doing this we are ensuring that it is clear to the body that immediate fat is consumed and converted into energy! Then on day three when we swich to the VLCD the HCG will start looking for fat in the body... Fat that I have been storing away for years, and the HCG will convert that to energy.
I have been eating bacon, chocolate, mangos and brownies!
Yikes! It was so good.
I took my injection this morning and Kelly used her drops 1/2 hour before each meal today.
