VLCD Day 8

Today is the 1st day of the 2nd week of the VLCD. Things are going great. I have lost 8.2 lbs and 4 inches in 1 week. I am very happy with those numbers! I am really feeling in the groove of the diet. I am not feeling hungry, angry or deprived, the way I did the last time I tried to do a round. I am just thankful that the weight is coming off! I am thinking a lot about what to do when I get off the VLCD. I am trying to reflect on what I did wrong this last time and how to be more successful at maintaining when I get to my goal, for the long term. I cannot keep losing the same weight over and over again.
School starts in just 2 days. I will be cooking and freezing a lot of things that I can easily grab and take to school with me. I wish I had a few more days to get my kids, myself and the house organized so that everything will run smoothly. But I will just do the best I can and hopefully the rest will take care of itself!

  1. Hey Brooke,

    Hopefully I'm back on track. My stomach still is a little weird, but I'm gonna try and lay off the crackers and cereal!! I read that if you're not having the losses you want to definitely eat the grapefruit, eat less beef, and take potassium supplements. I have also drank a few diet Pepsi's this round which I didn't do before. So I'm gonna try that and hope I can get some bigger losses.
    You on the other hand are doing so great and how fun to do it with Jorge!
    When I made the chicken wraps I did it with chicken. I sataed the chicken in a little chicken broth and added garlic salt, pepper and ginger (ginger is the key). It was really good. Are you doing Simeons, or are you following Trudeu with the bigger menu of vegetables; brocolli, etc.
    What fish are you eating and how do you cook it?
    Yeah, Todd and Lindsay are here for a while. They just did the Knoxviile Bridal fair and were so excited about it. It's much different here than in Utah. They are trying to build up the business here and in Asheville, NC and will then move on to Charlotte. Of course, they still have their 5 photographers back in Bountiful too. They have 4 other vendors renting space in their Bountiful home; a florist, invitations, cakes, videographer. They also have an insulation company renting space in part of their garage. They are going to get the parking lot completed in the Spring/Summer and then rent out the basement of their home and the rest of the garage. They have a plan!!! They are really happy here and we are having a great time. They work really hard all day, but we have lots of fun playing with Joshy and playing dominoes, and cooking together. It is going to be a fun year!
    Keep in touch- keep me going!!!
