HCG Day 3 - The Meltdown

Ya, so, remember yesterday when I was too full to choke another Oreo down? I would DIE for an Oreo now. I would die for a piece of white bread right now. I would die for the crust of a piece of white bread right now. Or a crumb. I think a crumb from a piece of white bread would be heavenly. A big crumb, please.


That is to be expected. Not only did I go from eating fairly normally to dieting rather extremely. But I went from binging and super high fats/sugers to very low fats and sugars. I think this could even out after a few days. I remember being very hungry the first few days on Weight Watchers too. So I'm giving it a few more days to see if I can get control of this hunger. If not, something's going to have to give.

Because it's not just hunger. I am very tired. And I don't feel like I'm thinking very clearly in the morning, when my calorie intake is at its lowest. I'm usually fine after lunch. But the morning time is pretty brutal. And the afternoon. And the evening. And the late evening. But especially the morning.

So my daily menu, in case anyone cares, was:

1 cup lemon zinger herbal tea with Stevia
1 stawberry smoothie (strawberries, 1 TBS milk, stevia, water, ice)

Grissini (hard breadstick)

Grilled Lime-Marinated Turkey Breast
Vinegrette Cole-Slaw

Snack - Grissini

Dinner -
Hamburger patty
Salad w/balsamic dressing

LOTS of water.

The good news (yes, there IS a silver lining, and I'm sure this is what has kept me going all day) is that I lost 2 lbs since yesterday! WOOT! As of right now, I'm at the lowest weight I've been in two months. And once I lose another 1/2lb, it'll be the lowest weight I've been in a year. So from here on out, it's all icing, baby.


Daily Wieght Loss: -2.0 lbs
Total Weight Loss: -1.0 lb

Why are you doing this diet? YOU ARE NOT FAT... AT ALL.

Congrats on the 2 lbs. Something I used to do was sip Green tea HP in the mornings. Give it another 2 days, if you're still starving you might need to adjust your dose.

Also, BN is right. You are not fat.

Yay for losing weight! You can do it! At least it's not a permanent diet right?

You have me totally intrigued. I haven't been working out seriously enough to justify this diet, but I'm real curious. Maybe if I am still not where I want to be in 4 months I will try it. Keep posting, I am super interested.
