Once I complete my transition stage I will report that differently. It will still be thursday but it will be based on naked morning weight.

I am half-way through my transition plan so I have 3 weeks left as an active participant in the weight loss plan. Last week I gained .6 pounds because I am eating real food again in limited amounts. So there are fluxuations in your weight depending on what you have eaten that day. I was not overly concerned about this as I had eaten a few hours before my weigh in, which is about 5 pm each thursday. When I was only on liquid intra-day weight changes were predictable. Now that is not true. My morning and afternoon weight can be 4 pounds different. Drives me crazy.

It has been a few weeks since I posted. December 28th I entered the transition phase. Week one was Hard as hell. Essentially I gave up one of my five shakes and added back 2 oz of protein, a cup of veggies and a cup of fruit. I was a very unhappy camper. Week two was much more doable. It added a little more veggies but i had the same number of shakes. Week three- My current week has been better... a little more food but I gave up another shake. So I am currently having 3 Shakes a day and some food.
Last week I eliminated lifting from my works out. I essentially just needed a break from it. I added or expanded rather my cardio. I am now doing the treadmill at 4mph with a 15 degree incline. I do this for 250 calories. I am pushing this to 320 calories.
This week I have returned to lifting. I am now breaking my workouts into three sections. Chest Shoulders, Legs and Calves, and Arms and Back.
My weight loss has slowed to a trickle. My nutritionist believes that my "fat loss is being overshadowed by my muscule gains". I will take that, happily.
Thanks for your continued support.

Day 105 Phase 2 one week down. This has been the most difficult week so far. I am essentially eating a mini meal a day made up of 2 0z of protein a cup of veggies and a cup of fruit. The fruit is ok but the rest of it just makes me hungry. Not a very happy camper. I weighed in at 233.6 so I lost .2 pounds. I ate more than I should have. I know Total weight loss is 54.8 pounds
