Hockey - you’re right the work at work will make the thinking about food easier. But the few people I’ve told about the v-diet have given me looks like I said “I’ll be drinking blood all day then performing evening rituals.” I did convince one person to do it with me, who is my constant instant support, and big surprise it is a guy. But most other chicks and especially co-workers act like I’m doing something that puts me in danger.
It is annoying, I could say the same thing about what they eat every day, but I refrain from comment. But no one seems to stop themselves from telling me how horrible my “diet” of protein is. That is my rant for the day. I think what I will say is that I am having a “shake for lunch” and not go into detail about how I have them for breakfast and dinner too.
I always think it is odd no one thinks it is unusual when people want to lose weight, but when you do start actually losing it everyone has an opinion on how dangerous/wrong/unhealthy your method is. Then once you ignore them and lose it, after all is said and done, they ask you constant questions about how you did it!
KC - you are spot on with using the forums. I do not think I would have made it through the first two days if I couldn’t read other people’s stories and trials/tribulations.
As for today’s update - WKO 1 is completed and I may need to peruse medical supply websites today to order my scooter when I can’t walk tomorrow.

Some if it is ignorance. Some people genuinely believe that eating more protein than the FDA food pyramid will destroy your kidneys…better to keep most of your nutrition to bread, cereal, rice, and pasta…that’s what will keep you healthy.
But then there are those that are threatened by you wanting to improve yourself, especially when they see you having instant progress where they have been dieting for months (by limiting it to 1 dessert a day) and want you to fail. Check out this article by Chris about these type of people:
It’s a great read. Find out who these people are and stay away.
