I'm pretty excited about that 1.8. Like REALLY excited.

Not so excited about the way I accomplished it, though. ;) Oh yeah, here we go: I ate lunch yesterday like a good girl. Yay! Halo-points for me! Then I kinda had a blonde moment and skipped dinner... OK, not the end of the world. I went to a friend's house and did NOT eat anything off-protocol. I *did* however, get into the Captain Morgan just a tich. *cough* Aaaannd ... I mixed some of it with Pepsi. Not a whole bunch, but at least one glassful. Oh yeah. Not so smart, that one. I did pound the water after a few drinks, probably six or seven full glasses .. and peed like a racehorse all night! Ha! That's probably where all the weight went.

I did find this in Pounds and Inches - what Dr. S has to say about drinking:
Obese heavy drinkers, even those bordering on alcoholism, often do surprisingly well under HCG and it is exceptional for them to take a drink while under treatment. When they do, they find that a relatively small quantity of alcohol produces intoxication. Such patients say that they do not feel the need to drink. This may in part be due to the euphoria which the treatment produces and in part to the complete absence of the need for quick sustenance from which most obese patients suffer.

So... We'll see if the scale will punish me tomorrow for my transgressions last night. ;)

Eddie... ate a hamburger for dinner last night, but abstained from the onion rings that came with it. lol We are a trainwreck!! But it goes to show - if WE can succeed on this protocol, then ANYONE can!!!

Lunch today was ground beef and cabbage for me, ground beef and onion for Eddie.

Dinner was verrry late tonight. Eddie had chicken and cabbage, sauteed in lemon juice and seasoned with cumin. (?? Don't ask... He's a strange man) He loves the cumin now, after I told him that my meat tasted like a burrito. LOL

Yeah, I was reading back through that post from P&I, and it doesn't sound so good for me! LOL I don't consider myself an alcoholic, but I do know that a few drinks go a long way with the hcg in your system! Whoo-ee! Anyhow, gnight everyone. See you tomorrow!

OH, a big hearty congratulatons to you - what a HUGE loss that was! You are close to 20 lbs! I understand the thrill that comes with a big loss. I nearly get high from it.

What an interesting commentary from Dr. S about 'antiseptic' drinks. Whatever contributes to a preference for drinking is genetic - because neither me nor anyone in my family 'gets' any benefit from drinking. Willpower has nothing to do with why we don't drink. I seem to be another part that Dr. S mentions as I suffer from the "need for quick sustenance". Ever present it is.

Thanks for your thoughts about being thin as woman. There was a lot of substance & truth in all of that.

Do you know how much I just LOVE BOTH your blogs??? AND YOU!!! You are really chronicling every nuance on this journey and it's so appreciated.

I don't have a lot of time today to spend on your answers, but I wanted you to know that I did read it and I totally appreciated your candor.

Be curious to know how the day turns out for you tomorrow.
