HCG's First Week is Complete!

Man, what a tough week! But what a rewarding week!!!

Here is my weekly update!

First I started off with my load days, Wow, I never thought I'd have a hard time stuffing my face.

Day 1: I ate three fried in bacon grease eggs, three strips of bacon, and homemade hash browns fried in veggie oil.


I ate all of it. Lunch was Lasagna and soda! And for Dinner I ate a cheeseburger from Wendy's with fries and a Dr. Pepper. And I had chocolate in between.

Day two was just as fatty. My last meal was a giant potato! 

And then Day 3 started.... the VLCD. I thought I knew what to expect, but I was surprised at how SMALL it was! I had to work on day 3 so I premade some chicken and strawberry vinaigrette and brought some spinach, my first meal.
It was good, but I should have sweetened the vinaigrette a little more. oh well, next time.

After a day or two on the VLCD I started feeling a slight, but constant headache. I took a plain, non-coated aspirin, and that took care of it. The days I work are BAD I get very hungry, and I think that is because my job is to much physical movement for 500 cal. I had to start spreading our the meals, stretching them. I had a fruit when I couldn't take it any longer in the morning, and then just my veggie and protein for lunch, and dinner I ate as late as possible with all three things. I drink a ton of water, I think I have got though half my bottled water pack already.
When I am not working in is not hard to follow the diet, in fact, I almost forget to eat sometimes.

I was doing so good, and not cheating at all, except for once, last night. :( I had two M&M sized pieces of chocolate. I felt bad and was afraid to get on the scale this morning, but I did, and I was still down another 1.4lbs. Thank goodness, I'm not going to do it again!

So here is my breakdown.  I started at 216.4lbs on the morning of day one (I weigh first thing in the morning) and today, the morning of day 7 (Monday) I am at 204lbs.!!! That is a loss of 12.4lbs!!! I am so happy to be seeing this much off in just 7 days, and two of those days were my load days!!!! 
As far as inches goes:
Neck: 14.5 Down 0.5 in
Right Arm: 15 no loss
Left Arm: 15 Down 0.5 in
Upper Chest: 39.5 Down 2.5 in
Chest: 44.5 Down 2 in
Midriff: 38 Down 0.5 in
Waist: 39 Down 3 in
Hips: 48 Down 0.5 in
Right Thigh: 29 no loss
Right Knee: 19 Down 1.5 in
Right Calf: 17 Down 0.5 in
Left Thigh: 28.5 down 1.5 in
Left Knee: 21 no loss
Left Calf: 15.5 no loss
Lower Waist: 46.5 Down 1 in
A total of  14 inches!!

I am very happy with these results, but still have a ways to go.
