Day 8

176.8 lbs

Still loosing.  I was so glad of it.  2 lbs today.  The homeopathic HCG really works well!!

I'm having a hard day today though.  We are out of food we can eat and it's not like I can just run down to the store and get any.  I should have thought a little more ahead.  Oh well....I'll make due.

Day 7

178.8 lbs

Well Blogger has been down....and so is my weight!  Wow that was cheesy...mmmmmm....cheese.....

I've lost 4.2 lbs since last Wednesday.  It's a miracle.  I've cheated like crazy (includin half a snickers bar yesterday and a pizza party with cookie cake on saturday).  I'm also not doing well with the homeopathic HCG.  Jon and I have already determined that we will not do the drops again.  There's nothing wrong with how they work.  They work quite well.  The problem is we can't remember to take them.  With the shot it's up in the morning, shot, and go on with your day.  With the drops you are constantly having to think about what time of day it is, have you had anything to drink, how thirsty are you and can you wait  another 15 minutes for a drink, and then there is the just plain forgetting.  More days than not we have only had one dose instead of three.  We're still losing though, so I'm not complaining.  Of course our drops will last us a lot longer so we will wind up going longer than 20 days.  In essence we will loose more weight for less money. HA!

Anyway.  Trying to take this seriously but I've learned that I can cheat and that's not a good thing.  I've also been thinking.  How did I gain back 30 pounds?  I mean, what in my tiny little brain did not click that I was gaining weight?  I weighed everyday.  I remember passing the 2 lb mark above my goal weight and thinking.....That's still not too bad.  Then I was 10 lbs above and though...ooooo...I really need to keep an eye on this.  Then I was 20lbs followed by 30.  Why in the world did I not stop myself?  Why did I not just pick the weight I was at that day and say NO MORE!  It was totally within my power.  The knowledge I've gained from this program gave me the power.  All I had to do was say..NO MORE!!!  Why didn't I?  That's food for thought.  I'll be trying to figure that one out before I get on maintenance.

Day 2

184.3 lbs

Gained a bit as expected.  I did my best to eat even though I don't feel well.  Not sure if it's the HCG or just lingering effects of being sick, but I just didn't want to eat.  I had two bowls of cereal and yogurt for breakfast.  A hamburger and Frappe from McDonald's for lunch and Jon used his new grill and we had homeade hamburgerrs for dinner around 8:30.  Jon also brought me back a Route 44 root beer from Sonic, of wich I could not finish half.  Although I felt like the homeopathic HCG was possibly just a placebo since it taste like WATER, I FEEL like I"m on injections.  I'm a little concerned tough because my mouth seems to be getting raw.  I'm hoping it's just the frootloops and not a reaction to the HCG in my mouth.

Day 1 - A New Beginning

182.3 lbs
I think I'm ready to do this again.  It has been a crazy year and I actually got down to 152 in the fall.  Over the holidays and since I've gained back 30 lbs.  I didn't want to admit it.  It just made me sick.  The weird part is, is that my body didn't show it until the last 10 lbs so I wasn't as concerned.  Now I feel fat again.  I feel tired and old physical issues are beginning to resurrect.  When trying to plan this session there was just no "open" time where there wasn't a family gathering or party.  It is going to be a challenge to get through the next 20 days, but I'll do my best.  I decidced to do the 20 day protocol because I noticed I lost the most amount of weight in the first 20 days of the program and then just trickled it off for the last 20 days.  I was so frustraited in the last 20 days and cheated because I didn't lose then didn't lose because I cheated.  In that light, I'm going for the 20 day regimen.  I'm also using homeopathic HCG this time.  My biggest worry in the next few days with loading is that I've been sick and really don't feel like eating to begin with.  My goal is 20 lbs.  I feel great at 160 and that's where I would like to be for the summer.  Here we go!.....again.
