I'm impressed! I fried 3 eggs this morning. I'm going to try to make it to 9 today.

I felt terrible when I woke up this morning. I felt like I was hit by a truck. I can't believe it would be caused by this egg fast. I must be coming down with something.

slept really well, lol! woke up tired, but feel pretty good. my stomach definitely feels more "sucked in" & skinny i measured & that was down 1/2" from last week.

my weight was down 1.2 lb - but i was SOOooo ready to get out of the freakin' 170s, that seeing 169 made me do a *snoopy dance*

yesterday's food:
B: 3 eggs, fried in butter
L: 1 hard-boiled egg
D: 3 egg omelet w/ 1 slice swiss cheese
S: 1 hard-boiled egg, smashed up w/ 1 T mayo
coffee w/ cream & 2 liters water w/ crystal lite

had my 2 fried eggs this morning & feel pretty good so far. no headache at all, and so far more energy today.

Well ladies, I must admit I fell off the wagon yesterday. Made it fine until 6 pm and couldn't resist eating something other than eggs. So I had a salad, turkey, and a few handfuls of peanuts. Before that I had 11 eggs total. My weight was the same this morning.

I'm considering taking one day every week to do an egg fast. This helps curb my appetite.

I didn't make it. I was feeling so sick and shaky that I was scared that it was the eggs so I ate a piece of grilled chicken and some almonds. I feel better but not 100%. Maybe I will make this an egg and meat fast. I will see what I weigh in tomorrow and then make a decision.

That may work for you I think it is the VLC thing and you can get what you need from the eggs. Meat I believe would work too.

For me, it makes me realize the wonderful things I can eat that are LC. I have craved some tonight. (not sweets either!) They will seem like a treat when I eat them again!

Today has been a rough day. My laptop has a blue screen and won't boot up. (It's exact words are "Fatal System Error". I had guests who came to weather the storms with us last night since they live in a mobile home. (Our house had 7 kids in it all day today from 11 mos to 11 years old.) Add a few other stressors, very little sleep and a roaring headache and you get me cheating with a few spoonfuls of green beans. I did manage to get 6 eggs down. I also have a sore throat, like when you are just beginning to get sick. Today was terrible. I'm going to bed. (And will be sparse b/c it's hard to post from my Blackberry.) Wow, I read this and I am such a Debbie Downer. I'm sorry, it's just been a rough week for me.

Hey ladies!!

I wish you all had more of an eggstream loss! Don't know why it works well on some and not on others.

Busy week here, lots of entertaining here (we live on the water) So ton of grilling in the last two days. One egg day for me the last 2 meat and egg:blush: I'm a mean griller, couldn't resist! Down 1.5 since Monday. I had 2 Mich Ultra's(beer) yesterday. Still lost 1.1... water?

Happy egging!!!

Hi Everyone. I didn't start today, as I did not have any eggs at home and didn't make it to the store. I'm going start either tomorrow or Saturday. I'll keep you all abreast of my progress.

Have a great day.

Meek

Oh wow I totally posted that I weighed 118 lbs earlier! Lol! I blame cold medicine. Um, yeah that must have been it!
REAL Stats:
5/24: 219
5/25: 218.6
5/26: 217.4

1.6 lbs in 2 days.

This morning I officially have the creepy crud, and woke up to all 4 kids complaining of sore throats and coughing and such. Ugh! The way my tummy feels this morning it will be easy to stay on the fast. (It's not a stomach virus, but my tummy feels a little yucky just the same.) I have nothing planned today and no guests, so today we will snuggle up of the couches and rest.

So... yeah. It is definately working. I'm going to start again with eggs and see how I go from there.

I still feel like crap but I'm not sure if it is VLC or I've got some kind of bug.

I took some dayquil and I am feeling better. Today will actually be pretty easy since we are all feeling yucky at the same time, so we won't do school. It might be better to get it over with all in one punch I guess. I ate two eggs for breakfast.

hugs & feel better vibes to those who feel bad.
