Lost 2 pounds!!

Hello all! It was somewhat of a rough day yesterday, I am not used to having to eat like 6 times a day. My old habits included not eating hardly anything during the day and then having a large dinner, which clearly was not working for my metabolism. Yesterday was technically day 3 of the hCG shots but day 1 of VLCD. Here's a breakdown of what I ate:

8am- apple

10am - melba toast

1:30pm - green beans and 3 oz chicken

5pm - half an apple

7:30pm - 3 oz ribeye steak and green beans

water intake= approx 1 gallon throughout the day
I was super tired at the end of the day and went to bed at 8:30pm, havent been able to do that in forever! Just a few things that I noticed in my first day: I had to pee all day long, and I mean ALL day. After doing some extensive research on hCG I found that people out there had the best results when they drank as much water as they possibly could (ideally 1 gallon). There were times throughout the day that I got those cravings for food, mainly when I saw someone else eating (no thanks to Gary for eating a crap load of lasagna in front of me). In order to curb the hunger I drank more water and it made me feel much better. I was also given a tip by my aunt: make sure you are getting sufficient fiber so that you dont get constipated. I have those little packets of benefiber that dissolve in water. They are tasteless and colorless, you dont even know they are in your water at all! I slept well last night and woke up feeling a bit hungry this morning. I ate an apple and then was good to go. I weighed myself this morning and could not believe my eyes! I am down to 184!!!!!!!!! Although this is going to be hard (especially since I live with people that eat very yummy things) I am going to stick with it, I am ready to feel good again! Thanks for all the support out there!
