Thanks Shari.

I finished R2P2VLCD5 and I had a zero loss this morning. That gives me a 4 pound loss for the week.

It's almost eerie how this round is like the last one. I was scheduled to have a zero loss by looking back at my records from last round.

I have been on p2 for 5 days. The first day I had a .5 difference in loss from round 1 to round 2 but the last four days have the exact same loss. I gained 2.5 more in loading this round. So, the first week of round 1 had a loss of 6.5 and the first week of this round I had a loss of 4.

I feel like I'm in Groundhog Day.

Today I took a multi-vitamin, b12, 7 potassiums, and a probiotic. It was strange to take so many pills.

Tomorrow morning I am switching to a new scale which measures to the .2.

Yesterday's menu:

taco salad over romaine, apple, melba
Biz's shake

I might as well go ahead and include today's as I'm out of food.

Today's menu:

chicken, cucumber, apple, melba
chicken, cucumber, apple, melba

Thanks ladies! I actually am feeling better today! Although, TOM showed up last night. Oh well, that's life!

I lost 1 pound this morning. I finished R2P2VLCD6 and I am down 5 pounds.

Again, the same weightloss as round 1.

Wow, at least your body is consistent. My body has a mind of it's own and no two rounds are the same. Congrats on the loss!

Thanks ladies!

I finished day 7 and I am down .4 this morning (new scale) which makes 5.4 for the net total.

Yesterday was a blur of running around and I didn't get to eat lunch until after 2. Thankfully, I wasn't hungry. However, I had been hungry the last few days, thanks to impending TOM.

I had to go to a b'day party yesterday evening where there were cupcakes, cake, icecream and pizza. I took one of Biz's shakes with me and I was just fine. I didn't even think about eating the other food. It never even crossed my mind. And that is the part that just blows me away. Weird.

Yesterday's menu:
chicken, cucumber, apple, melba
Biz's shake

I have no idea how much I lost on the corresponding day from last round because that was the day I got deathly sick and didn't weigh. I believe it was due to loss of potassium.

Thanks Lo!

Biz's shake is the shake a lady named Biz (Getting Down to Bizness, I think) from YouTube came up with. She has 2 of them per day plus a supper but I only have one as a meal. This is a loose recipe for it.

4 oz non fat cottage cheese, strawberries, cocoa powder to taste (I use 2T), spinach (which you don't taste in the shake), ice, water and a few packets of splenda (I use 4-5 per blender). Put all the ingredients in a blender (I use a Ninja which I LOVE!!!) and blend away. It makes a big blenderful. It tastes somewhat like a chocolate shake. Note I say somewhat. Some people love them and some don't. I think they are pretty good but what I love is they are so PORTABLE. I can just blend one up and take it with me for a supper on the run. Makes life so much easier when I'm carting dd here, there and everywhere.

You know, you could probably take out the cocoa powder and strawberries, and use an orange with vanilla Torani's and have an orange cream shake. I might try that!

I love the Ninja. It's around $30 at WM. It makes a shake in mere seconds and it can chop ice to 'snow' consistency. For real.

I've been making dd and dh some really cool concoctions with it too! Oh, and you wouldn't believe how fast you can make chicken salad with it!

Hi
You have lost 30 pounds?! Wow, wow, wow. That is really wonderful.

Noob question, is the census Splenda is ok to use? Curious.

Thanks for journaling. I will be reading.

Gah! Budget! Savings!! Must have!!!

Seriously though, I do need a blender. It's just me so I don't need an industrial-style one, but I love making blended soup purees, think it would do that? Smoothies too, I'm TOTALLY craving strawberries and cottage cheese right now!!!

I use Splenda every day with no problems, but some people do have issues with the sweetener stalling them. It's a YMMV thing - works fine for some, not so well for others. Wish I were more help!

Hi Stevie. Good luck on your journey! Splenda works for me too, but as the others have said YMMV. I use about 5 or 6 packets in Biz's shake.

Sassy, I don't recall using the Ninja to puree but I don't see why it wouldn't. I don't think it's industrial style at all... it has it's flaws. For instance, the pitcher can be messy when pouring and some of the plastic is not going to hold up for years and years. But for the $$, it was the best buy I saw and it is so much better than any blender I've used. I have the Magic Bullet too, but I like the Ninja much, much better.

I am having leg cramps again in the morning, so I'm bumping the potassium up to 8/day.

I just made the most wonderful smoothie. It aint much to look at, but it tastes really good. I used 4 oz cottage cheese, 1 orange, spinach, splenda, vanilla extract, ice and water. Kind of like a creamcicle.

Cue the spooky music... I'm down 1 pound this morning, exact same as last round. I guess I'm so surprised because I expected this round to be so different from the first one. I was all geared up for something totally different!

I finished R2P2VLCD8 and I'm down a net of 6.4.

Hi Shari! I liked the orange shake, but you might not. Some people are put off by the spinach, but it doesn't bother me. Next time, I might have a cucumber for an appetizer (lol) and then leave out the spinach. The shakes aren't that filling, but they are so perfect when you have to eat on the road.

I am feeling better, but still have less energy than normal, I think. I added so many other things (multi, probiotic, b12) at the same time, so I can't say if it was the potassium that helped or not. I'm glad that it's better though! Thanks for asking!

Congrats on the pound!! I'm seriously considering a Ninja, may get myself one as early as today. Shake season is quickly coming to a close and I'd hate to miss out on the fun of fresh fruit smoothies!!

Food for the day:

taco salad, apple, melba
chicken, cucumber, strawberries, melba

I have been a little bit hungry since I started this round. I'm hoping it goes away soon.
