Here it goes, last day of Phase 2 VLCD, so far I have survived not cheating since Saturday Nights Flop at the Ball Park, ate Hideaway Pizza.. Bad Bad girl, and had a Cocktail, and then gained 2 pounds! OMG.. this diet is totally tricky, however since that night, I have stuck to it, and have lost about 4 pounds since the weeked, for a total weight loss since November 28, 2010… OF 49.5 pounds! So I just say 50 pounds…LOL. I weighted this morning at 148.6 pounds, lowest I have weighted in YEARS! Even when I was on my weight loss kick back in 2003 before my Papa died I think I was around 160 ish.

Oh, and today, I took son to McDonalds and did not eat one of his french fries! Gosh, it was hard…
but I did it. Because “Nothing tastes as good as Thin Feels” have no idea who said this. Really the phrase is a bit annoying but it has helped some!

So, I am so close to my goal weight. Was 145 pounds, now I think I am going for 135 pounds. For now, I will try to take on the Maintance phase which is really basically no carbs or sugars. So, anyways we will see how that goes!

Remember weight loss is a process, and is not easy. If you are struggling right now, I have been there. One thing this diet has done for me, is help me realize I do have self control, and I feel a since of accomplishment. Thanks Beth for introducing me to this diet, you have been an inspiration and I feel like I have the old me back!

I am sure I will continue to weight around 148 to 149 tomorrow and hope to maintain about a 150 during maintance phase.

Picture above is me, taken today by my 4 yo son! I don’t have many pic’s of myself but thought I would share.

    Oh my gosh, Shannon, you look HOTT! HOTT MAMA! I like that quote. I just need to get back to feeling thin again. It's funny how gaining a few pounds can take you from feeling thin. I'm proud of your will power. I need to find mine again! And now you are an inspiration to me!

    Can you wear makeup and use lotions of phase 3?

    Keeping my Cents,
    Yes, you are not on the HCG anymore, then lotions and makeup should be perfectly fine! Good Luck to ya.
