Having to stop HCG drops....

Well I have to stop taking the HCG drops so that TOM will come and I can get my esure procedure done. It sucks but it'll be ok I'll just move on to phase 3 and stay in phase 3 until we get back from California. What sucks is I'm not supposed to lose anymore weight. When you go into phase 3 it's about maintaining the weight you lost already...*sigh* I have to do the VLCD part of the diet until August 24 at noon then it's back to eating "normal" again. I sure hope I can survive the hunger that's sure to come this next 72 hours and I sure hope TOM visits really really soon!

Total weight Loss from Round 1 of HCG protocol 20.8 pounds I've been told that is an amazing weight loss average I sure hope so. I know it's the most I've ever lost in less then 1 Oh dropping 4 sizes in clothing..more if you count the fact I fit into a regular pair of size 18 W after the 18.

Officially 20 pounds lost!!!!

With today's weigh-in I lost 0.8 pounds that put my full weight loss so far at 20.2 pounds!!!! I am so thrilled almost wanted to treat myself to a Only 15 more days of the VLCD then it's on to the maintenance phase. I am VERY scared of the maintenance phase that is where people mess up and gain weight back. I am so determined to keep the weight off I will do EVERYTHING I need to do including more exercise! I feel so good about where I'm at and how I'm doing I don't want to screw it all up.

I have a "friend" who is taking for her weight loss and she is doing good but I'm not too sure about taking a diet pill. Especially with all the crap that came from the last "big diet pill" phenfen or w/e it was called. I may have to discuss it with my doctor though see what he says.

What a busy weekend!!

Had to make a very unplanned trip this weekend to Salina Oklahoma to pick up my son then had to go to Tulsa to pick up all his stuff which was spread out between 2 houses. Needless to say I was not prepared meal wise. I had heard at one of the HCG diet forums I go to that you can go to Subway and get a sandwich without the bread and have them wrap it in lettuce. So we stopped there. Well this subway just gave me a really weird WTF you talking about look when I asked for a sandwich this way. I ended up getting a grilled chicken salad. It had grilled chicken, black forest ham (couldn't resist), cucumbers, banana peppers, and red onions on it. The only dressing they had that I thought would be "ok" was zesty italian. They weren't sure if there was any sugar in it but the rest I was pretty darn sure there was so I went with it. I also didn't drink much water while on the road but I did have some unsweetened lipton pureleaf tea and put truvia in it. Keep that stuff in my purse Got on the scale Monday morning and wanted to die I had gained a whole pound!!!! Needless to say the willpower took a blow and I felt like quitting.

I had reached the end of the 23 day protocol already so I figured what the hell just quit now and you can do a 43 day protocol when you get back from California. Thank God for my husband! He talked to me about not giving up and sticking to my plan he knew if I did give up I'd never forgive myself. Well I stuck it out and guess what. I LOST 2.2 pounds!!!!! YES! Willpower is back and I'm trudging forward. Don't get me wrong I could really go for a BIG ASS CHEESEBURGER and FRIES with a CHOCOLATE SHAKE right now but I'll stick with my protocol foods and just imagine I'm eating that

VERY very LONG day!

I've had a very very long day! Left the house at 10am to do some shopping with my mother in law before my doctor's appointment figured we'd only be gone for an hour or 2 so I didn't take any drops, food or water with me. Well she ended up locking her keys in her car and we were stranded in the heat for about 3 hours! I thought I was going to pass out and I had my 3 daughters with us and they were miserable too. Ended up barely making my doctors appointment. Went all day til 5pm with nothing to eat and only 1 bottle of water that I bought out of the machine at the doctors office. It was so horrible! So from now on no matter how long I'm going to be gone I'm stocking

My doctors appointment went great he was so shocked with how much weight and inches I've lost. This was a ob/gyn appointment so he hadn't seen me in almost a year. He wanted to hear all about the HCG diet so I filled him in. I was kinda surprised with him not knowing about it. I might have to stop my HCG drops though because I'm having an essure procedure done and he said if it affects a pregnancy test then I have to stop it long enough for him to do this procedure. I told him since it's homeopathic it shouldn't affect a pregnancy test..hope I am right?

Anyways I got another very long day tomorrow with appointments for all my kids so I'm going to do an apple day tomorrow. I figured it will be easier to travel with apples then a bunch of other food.

Today's loss was .6 pounds..I'm really missing those 1 pound loss mornings..*sighs*

Over the stall!

So I didn't blog yesterday. I was really busy trying to get some stuff done at the house and getting some stuff printed out for my sister. Yesterday was a bad day! I woke up weighing the same thing as the day before. I experienced my first stall and it discouraged me big time. I even felt like cheating using the excuse "well I stalled might as well eat whatever". Thank god for my husband and children they kept me strong and I didn't cheat! Woke up this morning to a .6 pound loss! It's not a full pound but it's a loss and that's what matters. This is what keeps you motivated!

Today was great?

We had our day planned change the kids' room's around then go shopping together at Lowes and Wal-Mart. Well that changed with one phone call. Parents in law broke down so we had to go tow them home so we got a really late start on our day. We did end up at Wal-Mart to do some grocery shopping and OMG it sucked!!! We should have the common sense to NOT shop on the 1st of the month!! The amount of people there was unreal lines were going down the shopping aisles with every cash register open. Took us longer to check out then to get the vitamins and few groceries we went there for.

My husband is really catching on to this diet. He was right beside me reading the labels it was funny. I had picked out some salsa to put in their meatloaf tonight I didn't bother reading the label because well it's salsa and I wasn't eating it. He picked it up and said has salt and sugar in it. So it took us about 5 minutes to find some without all that crap. We got some vitamin water I really hope its ok to drink on this diet. I bought the ZERO vitamin water lemon and orange flavored.

I ended up making myself a "mock" meatloaf to eat for dinner. I took 1/2 a melba toast and grinded it up, made some home made salsa, mixed it all with my 100 grams of beef, and then I put it in the oven on top of a few slices of onions then layered a few more onions on top. It was soooo good and I didn't feel like I was missing out on the meatloaf everyone else got to eat!

Oh btw today's weigh in I lost 1.4 lbs!!

Saturday nights suck!

This is the first weekend of me being on the VLCD and I'm dieing! I knew it was gonna get harder on the weekends because our weekends are usually full of eating out. I can't wait for bedtime so I can just sleep it all away though I know tomorrow is going to be just as hard. I just have to keep telling myself I can do this. Saturday's are usually pizza night because of racing the kids weren't too happy when they found out we weren't doing that anymore. So tonight the girls begged me to let them cook so I let them. They cooked eggs and felt so grown up they soon forgot about not getting pizza.

My sister is starting the VLCD on Monday I'm excited for her! It's going to make it a bit easier on me when she is on it too we can experiment with our foods together and complain about it

This mornings weigh in was a loss of 1.2 pounds for a total of 9.6 pounds lost in 6 days of VLCD loving it! I just hope it keeps going like it has been & I stop thinking about all the food I can't eat.

Still going...

Last night was hard for me but I pulled through! I went a bit rogue and tried salsa on my chicken and then I made a suggested frozen coffee that wasn't too rogue for phase 2. So when I went to bed last night I was terrified that I had screwed it all up. I did my normal shot of ACV but this time I just used all my allotted lemon juice of the day and mixed the ACV with it OMG it was tart as hell but didn't make me want to vomit like the ACV cocktail did!

Today I can't eat for some reason I'm just not hungry at all. I forced myself to drink a strawberry crush about 10 am then I cooked me some fish and spinach for lunch around 1pm took 1 bite of the fish fed the rest to my cats. I just couldn't get the rest down and it's not because it tasted bad I just wasn't hungry and I listened to my body. I'm scared that I won't eat enough then I'm scared I'll eat too much.

I even freak out if I go off routine just a bit. Everything is timed and if I miss it by 1 minute I freak ,I gotta get a grip!

Morning Weight 232.4 (-1.2 lbs)

So it begins

On July 24, 2010 I started what I'm calling my life journey. It's not just a diet it's a life journey and I know it's gonna be a bumpy one but I'm going to enjoy the ride. I've always been a heavy girl. I've tried everything you could think of to lose weight. Even suffered through an eating disorder for many years. Then my aunt introduced me to HCG. After reading about it for days on the internet and ordering HCG Weight Loss Cure Guide I decided NOW is the time. I have a great support system through my husband & children not to mention my mother, father, and sister. They are all rooting for me and they know I can do it. My sister will be starting her life journey on August 1st and my husband said when I reach my goal weight he is going to start his but not with HCG he doesn't have the willpower for it (haha)

With the HCG diet not only do I want to lose weight but I want to learn to eat the right foods, feed my family the right foods, I so badly want to LOVE food again. I've always thrown a bit of organic food into the mix but it doesn't really matter when everything else you put into your system is McDonald's!

So today I start sharing my journey with you all. Hopefully my journey can inspire someone else to begin theirs!
