Amie Starting Weight: 168.2
Yesterday: ?
Today: 168.2
0 lb. Released Overnight
0 lb. Released Since Start of VLCD 04/26/08
Average Weight Release Per Day: 0 lb.

Today is THE DAY, y'all! I begin NOT a sloooow, frustrating "diet" yo-yo ... but a virtual NASCAR-paced DIVE to fat-freedom.


OK, let's get down to the nitty-gritty. So far today...
Breakfast: 1 cup coffee
Lunch: 1 melba, 100g crab meat and a thick slice of white onion seasoned with garlic, pepper and Herbamare. I did eat about a handful of grapes, so we'll see if that affects my loss tomorrow morning.
Snack: 1 banana, 1 handful Ritz Toasted chip/crackers, 1 melba - DANGIT! :P
Dinner: 100g crab meat, one handful button mushrooms. Greeeaaat start, Amie. lol
I need to go shopping for some protocol fruits and veggies - as soon as I can find a ride back up to the hospital, I'll get my car back and go to the store.

Recovery from surgery is going well ... still sore and a little tired, but the healing process seems to be on-track.

Brandi is doing AWESOME - she had a dinner thing to go to last night, but she pretty much stuck to the plan with chicken breast, corn and a strawberry dessert. She said that she's lost 3 pounds already and is LOVING that! She's writing everything down too, which is great.

So far, so good!

I'm planning on taking some "before" photos as soon as I can get my hot little hands on a digital camera.

I am so stoked for your beginning of P2 again.

How long do we have to "weight" (heh heh groan) to start it after the first round? You remind me of a race car - all that fire and beauty on your website - VRROOOOOMMMM.

It helps me to know that it's OK to want to take the race car to weight loss, not the slow assed donkey cart.

You are my hero!

Hope you have a whopping loss tomorrow!

You are doing just fine... don't beat yourself up over the deviations. You're ARE recovering from surgery. Just know your limits and I'm sure you'll be fine. With the things you ate... I bet you'll have a loss tomorrow.

Can't wait to see your photos. Take care.
