VLCD 6 - I cheated...

starting weight - 187 (188.5 after loading)
current weight - 179 (no change, total of 9.5 lbs)
current goal - 150
ultimate goal - 135

Yes, I cheated. I ate spaghetti and french bread for dinner with my family. I guess you could say it was a planned cheat. After I got sick the other night and I ate off protocol (nice way of saying I CHEATED!) I felt really good the next day and decided maybe it was a good thing I ate. So I thought I might do that every few days or so because it might help me stick to the diet longer and feel better every now an then.
Sundays are very busy days for me too and the extra energy has really helped so far. I didn't lose or gain so maybe I have been lucky so far but if I cheat every now and then and end up gaining big time then I will re-evaluate.
Have a blessed day!


  1. Hi Marsha - been following your blog a's we started the same day. I also had a small bowl of pasta last night and gained this morning, but not by much.

    I'm on another blog of diehards that don't agree with your philosophy above, but I do. I have to believe that retraining myself to eat right is part of this deal, and if I can't do that, I'm in bug trouble when I stop. So I'm with you!

    Keep posting and thanks for a sharing!


  2. Thanks so much for your support! I really appreciate it and your comments. Have you been having much luck with the diet?
    I am pretty pleased with it so far :)

  3. I'm down 8 lbs total after 1 week. I have to redo measurements tonight so we'll see!
