Thursday October 29th
Starting weight: 268
Today's weight: 242.5
There's a little deli on Lakeside Avenue at Leschi Park that has organic meats for a lot less expensive than Whole Foods, PCC or Trader Joe's. Also, they'll grind beef for you at leanest possible, which is important for Phase 2 of the HCG VLCD.
For the last couple days I'd been stalled at 244.5, very annoying. But on Monday I ordered three pounds of beef, which was ready yesterday, so I made 4 oz patties out of it and fried them up (no oil) in a pan. They were delicious with some tomato, lettuce, onion, and pickle.
They say that beef can either break a stall or start one. It broke mine, as far as I can tell, but stalled K.
This morning I weighed myself at 243 before the shower, and 242.5 after. Fantastic. I'm 2.5 pounds away from my goal (though looking at 240, I see a lot of excess weight around my midsection that will necessitate another round next January). I have a little less than a week to go, and barring further stalls it should happen.
It'd be nice to hit 239 if possible, that'd be 70 total pounds in two rounds. Hell I'll round up if anyone asks. :)
