You might be getting to the point where you might not have a period this month! Something about the hormone progesterone and hair falling out alittle earlier than regularly expected (which is 1-2+ years) because your progesterone might be lower than usual (and when you are pregnant it stays in longer as the progesterone hormone is very high - as it is the pregnancy hormone needed to keep the baby attached to the uterus, and that is why mommies-to-be get pretty thick long hair for those 9 months - really 10 months of gestation). It will all go back to normal after your bodyfat goes back up, which means the progesterone will also go back up. Your body is telling you that you can't get pregnant during this starvation time, so it shuts down stuff. It is just temporary. Luckily you have a short haircut style so a couple of months of hair growth will put it back to full strength for you to enjoy!

Now I have heard of girls who juice will lose their hair due to the high testesterone levels that produce the typical male pattern baldness, but you are all natural - so that explanation is erroneous.

I also wanted to add that you might have to try and control your emotional stress the best you can with different techniques (I use deep breathing and positive comments streaming thru my brain). You have to remember that your cortisol level (master hormone) will be very high at this point in your contest prep. Each different stressor is at its peak right now -

-physical from all the workouts and cardio
-nutritional stress from the lack of calories and perhaps nutrients - and possibly any artificial flavorings, colors, sugar substitute, etc. that you are still ingesting
-emotional stress with the hormones all bouncing around and scrambling to balance the body at this depleted stage

and when the cortisol levels gets too high you will then experience insomnia and cravings for food you can't have on this contest prep diet. Emotional stress is the one stressor that you can try and control to a degree. . . . . so focus on trying to keep the emotions on the down low girl (tried to talk slang here, but it is probably lame . . sigh).

As Synny said, you are almost there! Focus on the date! Show off your hard work! Get the audience to know that veganism can be used for building muscle! and then you can collapse like you just ran a marathon, and begin getting yourself back to normal (which doesn't take that long to do - so don't stress about the temporary situations you find yourself in).

Thank you so much for supporting me. I'ts amazing and I cant really put it into words! thank you so much. everyone.
i only had one cherry coke zero today and one piece of gum but spit it out after like 30 seconds after yelling at myself. my coworker gave it to me, and i havent had any or bought any since i declared i was stopping. i hope at least the crap load of vitamins im taking are supplying some of the nutrients im missing...i really havent had any food cravings that dont pass. like if im serving food at work and the lasagna smell is wafting yeah i crave it, but then just tell myself thats crap why would i want to put that into my body (of course i cant eat it cause of cheese but the garlic is overpowering). the smell of my mom's food in my house gets to me sometimes...pasta beans garlic oil...and some other childhood recipes. gonna pack my contest bag with chick peas, sweet potato, banana, pb...do you think the sciavation xtend counts as artificial crap? my trainer actually was the one who recommended it and sold it to me and he takes it himself except for contest week cause of the salt in it...and i havent had a period since i stopped taking the bc. finished up 30 mins HIT, 332 calories. was able to keep the speed up between 4.2 and 4.6 the whole time on level 20.

I took back the GNC thermo - it gave me a headache - and the guy was so nice. I told him that I was using the Lipo6 and had no headaches with that - unfortunately they do not sell the plain Lipo6, but they do sell the Lipo6Black for hers and him. He then also informed of the FDA that is going to pull the Lipo6 Black off the market because of the DMAA in it. So I googled and found this for you:
http://www.schmidtlaw.com/dmaa-lawsuit/

Now the regular blue and gray bottle of Lipo6 does not have this in it. Just thought I'd let you have the know, and you can do what you will with it.

I would not personally take the Xtend. I already know from it having sucralose and acesulfame potassium, because I can not take that stuff - bloating and headaches for days after just taking a sip of that stuff! I found this info on it - but if it doesn't bother you, then another 2.5 weeks of it shouldn't bother you much:

123.0.
27 minutes on treadmill 4.1 mph 12.0% incline. let it go for an extra 30 seconds to make up for when the incline was loading up.
