VLCD 1- Holy Cow!!!

starting weight - 187 (188.5 after loading)
current weight - 183.5 (lost 5 lbs)
current goal weight - 150
ultimate goal - 135

I lost 5 lbs in one day!!! Yipeee! I weighed myself before I went to bed last night and had already lost 2 lbs from that morning. Overnight I lost 3 more! I had a hard time eating all my food too - I didn't quite get it all down. Not because I wasn't hungry - I was. I just could not stuff another bite of salad in my mouth. I drank some hot tea and then a cold bottle of water and it helped with the hunger quite a bit. I don't know what I am going to do because I hate veggies and I just can not eat all this salad - its a lot! I went to eat my lunch yesterday and I filled my bowl 2 and half times with salad and steak!
So my starting weight was 187 but after loading I was 188.5 and this morning I was 183.5. I am so excited :)
Thank you all for following the blog and for your comments and support!


  1. AWESOME for your first day!!! You will learn to get creative with the veggies. Broiled tilapia with tomatoes is AWESOME. I use half of a lemon and different kinds of vinegar for a sauce. Season and broil. The fish gets flaky and the tomatoes get soft. Yummy! I think I will actually have some tonight for dinner. LOL I haven't read your entire blog yet but your weightloss will definitely slow down. I know it is hot, but I get a lot of my veggies in when I make soup. Chicken soup in a crock pot is awesome. Just let it sit all day and the veggies get soft and taste like the chicken. Let me know if you want recipes. I have a ton!!!

  2. I would love the recipe for the Chicken Soup - sounds really yummy!
    From the research I have done it looks like just about everyone loses a good deal of weight the 1st week and then it slows down a bit. It's so much more encouraging to stick to a diet when you see results so quickly!
