So I had started the HCG back up on March 15th. Lost a total of 15 pounds in a total of 31 days. I got frustrated with not losing much so I took a 2 week break and started the hcg up again last Sunday. So far the scale has moved every day and I'm getting closer and closer to my goal. I'm down a total of 69 lbs and this round (starting from March 15th) I'm down 19 lbs. I have 15 more to lose before the next 24 days. hopefully it comes soon because my work is having a huge party and it would suck to not be able to eat anything while I'm there (and I have to be there since I'm helping with the planning). I have 86 more lbs to lose to reach my goal weight or 96 to have my BMI be normal. I'm thinking I'm sort of big boned so we'll see if that happens.

Wow sorry guys and gals! I haven't been keeping up on this. Mostly because I haven't been losing weight the past 2 months, just been maintaining the weight I had lost. So far the total is 50 lbs! I can hardly believe it. I'm already able to fit into an XL .. I was wearing 3xl tops! I have 2 pairs of jeans that I'm totally looking forward to hearing after this round. Maybe even during the middle of the round. We'll see. I'm starting my 3rd round this weekend and I can hardly wait!

I've been doing a great job at keeping the weight off. I had a few times where I splurged and gained about 3 or 4 lbs but quickly corrected it the next day with a "steak day". Skipping all my meals and having a large steak and an apple for dinner. Don't ask me how it works but it does.

I can't wait for the weekend. I have a luncheon with girls from work, cutting my hair to donate to cancer patients, a wedding reception and a bachelorette party all in one day! Then I will start my drops and start loading. I am hopeful that this round will be just as successful as my 2nd round. I'm about 100 lbs from my goal and 110 lbs from society's ideal weight for my height. I can't believe I'm actually going to be able to reach this goal. It's going to be so great.

I heard this song today and a line in it said "your too cute to be single" and I wondered if I'm going to hear this line in the future. HEHE ... I am just so excited to be getting in better shape and getting healthier every day. I've learned that sugary treats are OK but in moderation. That was my biggest problem. It's time for bed. Thanks for stopping by. Leave a comment if you'd like! :-)

HCG Diet

Update on 12/14/09 Monday!

Can you believe Christmas is only 11 days away? I still have shopping I need to get done soon! Just don't know what to get people I guess. So to the point of the blog eh? Sunday I reach 40 lbs lost! Unfortunately, I gained 3 lbs so I'm back down to 37 total. I'm sitting at 20 lbs this round and I'm hoping it was just water weight so I've been trying to get all my water in for today. We had some not too bad tasting crab cakes. A little on the spicy side but they weren't too bad considering we couldn't use real crab cake ingredients.

Today has been such a crazy day. I want to say bad but there's nothing bad that really happened except maybe the weight gain and another thing. I was told that someone had said that once I go off the diet, I'm going to gain all the weight back. So far I've been doing well to lose it and I haven't been gaining much except a few pounds here and then which is lost again anyway. I'm just frustrated that someone in my own family would say such a mean and hurtful thing about me. I don't think people understand how not being supportive can be a huge damper for someone, no matter what it is. I also don't think people realize how much their love and support means to me! Those that haven't been supportive and have tried to steer me off my journey, well I don't hang out with them anymore. Most of the reason why I stay at home too. But I really do want to thank you guys for being so supportive while I go on this roller coaster journey of weight loss. It's taken me 25 years to get to the weight I'm at now and I know it isn't going to be a quick, over-night cure. Tomorrow is another day and sure to be a better day than today.

HCG Diet

12/12/09 - Saturday

Good morning fellow bloggers. What a week it has been. Thursday, I'd lost 3 lbs! How awesome is that? Sadly, Friday I gained a pound but today I'm down 2. So let's do the math shall we? I'm down 22 lbs for this round and a grand total of ... drum roll ... 39 lbs! I was looking at my stomach this morning in the mirror and it's looking a little saggy. It could just be my imagination though. I'm hoping it is! The stretch marks are starting to fade though which is really awesome!

Yesterday was a rough day for me. After stepping on the scale and finding that I'd gained a pound, I found out that my truck still isn't ready. Been over 2 weeks without it now. Apparently the mechanic decided to find some more things wrong with it. They must not be very busy I guess. Anyway, they say I should have it Monday but I'm not going to get my hopes up. After I left work I came home and didn't even feel like eating so I took a nap. Slept for like 3 hours. Woke up at 4:30pm and figured I should probably eat so I threw some lettuce in a bowl, heated up some chicken and put some strawberry dressing and that was lunch/dinner. On top of the salad I ate 2 apples during the day. I'm feeling the same way today, no wanting to eat. Looks like I'll be forcing myself to eat again today. Oh well. Not much longer on the HCG. I can only lose 12 more lbs before I have to stop taking it and I'm hoping it goes quickly. This diet is getting more and more difficult for me to resist normal foods, especially when offered candy bars at work! So far, I've been able to stay strong and I hope will be able to the rest of the way. :)

HCG Diet

12/09/2009 - Wednesday

This morning I woke up around 2 am because I need to use the restroom. I thought for kicks and giggles, I would weigh myself. Well the scale said I gained 2 lbs. I stepped off and tried it again and it said the same thing (reliable scale for sure). So, disappointed, I went back to bed. 5 AM rolled around and I got up and relieved myself again, got back on the scale and it had gone down 1 lbs. So I'm up 1 lbs instead of 2. I suppose I should be happy I didn't really gain 2 lbs but I'm just upset that I gained anything at all. I'm thinking the steak I had for lunch may have been the cause of it because I don't know how it was prepared (whether my brother made it or my mom).

Sadly, most of today was spent sleeping. I did go to work for a few hours but I had a headache so I couldn't stand to be there for too long. I think the most I did was decorate the Christmas tree and did the dishes. Otherwise I was laying in bed sleeping or playing on the computer. I haven't had any energy today. Should probably find the b-12 vitamin's that I bought a last round and start taking those again to help. I'm down 18 lbs in 13 days. Not too shabby even with the weight gain, I'm ahead of the game. I'm just hoping that the next 16 lbs shed quickly so I can start the maintanence phase. :)

Thanks for the support, as always! Love you all =)

HCG Diet

12/08/2009 - Tuesday

Okay so the weather has been so crazy today! We have maybe a foot of snow outside. I attempt to drive to work in the Mustang I'm borrowing but that quickly failed. Thankfully, I had at least some good new this morning! I'm down another 0.7 lbs. I'm still only at 19 lbs lost but for 12 days, I don't think that's too bad! I've been doing a holiday health challenge with work and I've been doing some exercising while on the HCG. Nothing too extreme or anything but at least it's something right? The reason you aren't supposed to exercise too much while taking HCG is if you are burning more calories than you take in, you are burning fat right? Well it's going to be the good fat that you need to protect your body. The HCG burns the stubborn bad fat that your body stores and never uses. The nutrients stored in the fat you burn is still kept in your blood so I'm not losing any nutrients either which is always good considering I don't get enough Vitamin D and with the Depo shot, I'm suppose to get more calcium too.

I'm thinking part of the reason I didn't lose as much yesterday is because I didn't drink much water and I also forgot to eat a fruit with my dinner. Whoops! I'm doing a lot better today though. Already on my 3rd bottle water and it's only about half full. Only 1 more to go. :)

Things have been getting better with the cooking situation. My mom has been better at telling me when she'll be home and when she'll be gone which makes things easy. And she's been making more portions when she cooks too which she totally doesn't need to do but I'm glad she does! :)

One last note: I put on the shirt I bought a few months ago and it fits! It's slightly tight but it looks really good on! The pants aren't quite there and that's okay. I'm just glad because this shirt is 4 sizes smaller than what I generally wear! I can't wait till I can start shopping for smaller size jeans. Maybe clothes shopping will be fun for once!

HCG Diet

Here's another update!

I started the HCG drops again on Thanksgiving. Thursday and Friday were my "load" days so I could eat whatever I want. Sadly I ate WAY too much on Thursday and felt a little sick but quickly recovered. Yesterday (Saturday) was day 1 of the low calorie diet. I think I did pretty well considering all we had to eat in the house was tuna and tomatoes and apples. Tomorrow I will probably have shrimp salad and for dinner, chili! YUMMY!

As far as the total goes, I sadly had gained 10 lbs while on the maintanence phase so starting round 2 I was only down 23 lbs from my original weight back in September. I'm happy to report that I'm back down to 29 lbs lost! I'm going to be doing it the full time so Jan 6th will be the day I stop the stops and Jan 9th will be the last VLCD day. I cannot wait to see what changes come this round and I'm hoping that they will be a lot better this round than last round. Not that the first round didn't give me extraordinary results! I'm completely happy with the results so far. I'm just hoping I can do better when it comes time for the maintanence phase. I tend to get a sweet tooth that can never fully be satisfied which is why I put on the weight in the first place. Wish me luck everyone! I appreciate all the love and support I've received so far and I'm glad to know people are proud of me for being able to do this. :-)
