R2 P1 – Load Day 2

January 19, 2010

Post load weight:  179.1

Load day 2 was, well, another load day.  It is what it is.   I didn’t feel quite as bad as I did on load day 1 but I wasn’t totally up to par either.  I’m very happy that the load days are behind me – now I can get down to business.

I’m looking forward to my weigh-in tomorrow.  I don’t think I did all that bad with my gain from load days (I gained 4.6 pounds) , it sure could have been worse.  For round 1 though, I actually lost weight after load days, but I was just lucky I guess.  

I’m excited, and feeling strong in my determination to succeed.  I’m wishing the same for you today!


R2 P1 – Load Day 1

January 18, 2010

Ok I had to change the title of yesterday’s post.  My approach the whole time I’ve been blogging is to blog today about yesterday.  So today’s post is about Load Day 1.  If that doesn’t make sense just ignore my rambling and read on.

I said it for loading during Round 1 – I absolutely do not enjoy load days.  I really feel ill.  I don’t know if it’s the first days of the HCG that make me feel that way or the fact that I’m forcing myself to eat a bunch of crap that I don’t normally have.   I actually feel worse during load for Round 2, but I guess that makes sense because I’ve been keeping strict control over my food choices.  Yesterday I was so exhausted I could barely do anything.  I layed down for two hours in the afternoon, which is NOT like me.  I went to bed at 9 (felt sick from eating) and slept until 7:15, and had to force myself to get up.  When I got up this morning (load day 2) I felt good, and was extremely relieved that I did.  About 30 minutes after my dosage I had breakfast (bean and cheese tacos with sour cream) and boy did stomach problems commence.  I thought I was going to have to work from  home but my tummy finally calmed down and I came on into work.  Blah.  I think today is going to be a long day.

I’m almost done bitching, but not quite.  Sorry.  Bear with me.  I’ve gained at least three pounds from load day 1.  Well maybe I lost some of that gain after my stomach issues this morning.  Regardless, it’s really difficult to see this happen.  I know I have to just let this go, but DAMMIT! 

Feeling funky, feeling down, ready for VLCD.  I may not force myself so much today as yesterday to eat.   We’ll see.
