I lost one pound (maybe a little more) last night. I am back on track. Have lost 20 lbs in 15 days.. I am so excited and ready to see what comes. I have filled up 4 smartwater bottles in my fridge so I know when those are gone I have had my water. I took my supplements. No fruit or melba ( I have a tomato which actually counts as a fruit). I had cooked spinach yesterday, much better than I would have thought. I cooked it in a pan over the stove with nothing more than the water left on it after I washed it, salt, pepper, and garlic salt-yum!!! It looked nasty but tasted really good. Now lets see it I can get this HCG to kick in again.

Ok so I have been very slack with keeping up. Today is VLCD 14 and I feel not so good. I have lost a total of 19.7 pounds in 14 days so pretty good. The last few days I have been on a stall. I don't think it is the diet as much as I have gotten slack about what I am eating. My husband was begging me to go out to eat. I knew that was wrong but I thought I could just get safe food. Well, there is no safe food in a resturant. We have found out it is best to just go to the store buy nice food and cook it at home and try to make a night out of it. My husband grilled asparagus and sirlion for me last night-it was soooo good. Much better than any resturant could have done.

Goals for this week-- Drink more water.
take my supplements in the am
Eat chicken and tilipia
It is only for 26 more days- I can do that.

Today I released 2 lbs-total of 10.6 in 4 days!!

This morning I passed the 10 lbs mark. Very exciting!! So crazy how easy this is. I mean, I have two little kids that I have to make their every meal and handle their every little treat...and I don't cheat!! Crazy because I am a big cheater usually. I did take my little girls slice of orange yesterday but that was allowed. Thie big nasty yummy chocolate cupcakes don't bother me anymore...its the watermelon that I want now.

I will say that I am having problems in one aspect. I don't know if it is mental of the person who I got my HCG from did something funny with it. My heart seems to be racing and I am grinding my teeth and I have had sleeping problems. I go to sleep super fast but then I wake up and can't sleep. It is a scary feeling sometimes. I slowed my drops yesterday to see if that made it better. I only took one dose and I did fine with food. They say you can't take too much but my body was saying different. No one else I have found has ever had a problem like I mentioned. I do wonder if it my mind because I have this reaction when I take just about anything even a muscle relaxer, I hate any meds..so funny since when I was young I would take just about anything. Well I am going to try to work thought this and stick with it. I do hate it because I love this diet otherwise. It is the easiest most productive diet I have ever been on. It makes me want to clean my house, I am up at the crack of dawn, I am not hungry.

VLCD4- I released 2.4lbs

This morning I woke up to find that I had released 2.4lbs!!! HCG Rocks!!!
TOM did come yesterday with full force..no pain but wow. won't be leaving the house today.

I do have to mention something that I am feeling...I went to bed early last night-about 9. Then I woke up at 12. I find that I am grinding my teeth-my jaw hurts. I was also so pumped I could not go to sleep again until about 4. My mind was racing and it was bad. This is the 1st night I had sleeping problems and it could be one of two things....I took a does of HCG later in the night than usual because I was getting cravings or because TOM came ( I mean this is all about hormones so could that have caused the lack of sleep?)

Besides that I am doing great except that one time I have had no cheats, no desire to cheat and no hunger except for while I am cooking my food. Ok, I did cheat once yesterday...I was putting watermelon in a bowl for my girl and I had to taste a piece-that was the best tasting watermelon EVER!!!

I did find something bad...when you try a new recipe with your little tiny bit of food and it is nasty. I LOVE fish!!! But I heard about someone cooking it with apple cider vinegar so I did it---horrible. Cook the fish then dip it in ACV. To mention that...I have had apple cider vinegar everyday, with my fish, on my salad, letting my cucumber soak in it with salt and pepper.

Total so far including loading weight is 8.8 in 3 days--Hell yeah!!!

This morning I woke up at 6am...this does not happen to me. I had such a busy day yesterday and had to do so much last night that mentally I wanted to lay in bed until my 2 year old got up but something in me was trying to get me out of bed. It was an mental dragout fight going on within me. I think if I start going to bed at a good time then I will wake up early and love it.

Well, when I did get up and weighted myself guess what??? 2.4 lb loss heck yeah..plus TOM showed up finally. So that is a total of 6.4 lbs total so far!! I gained 4 on my load so really 2.4. But is has been so awesome and I have not been hungry except when I am supposed to be - right before I eat. My wonderful husband ( a little sarcastic) has done everything to help me with my willpower since he still eats cookies and bought pizza. So far nothing has tempted me. I have to make peanut butter sandwiches for the kids and it didn't even bother me. Actually I think I need to eat more.

Yesterday I had a large apple for breakfast.
Tilipia with bay seasoning / cucumber in apple cider vinegar
6 large shrimp on a bed of romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes with apple cider V.

Day one was awesome!!!

Everyone wonders how you eat only 500 calories in a day without eating your arm off....well, it's the HCG baby!!! I would have never guessed it would have been so easy to not have an interest in food. I made my food...tilipia in the oven in a foil pocket with lemons for lunch and for dinner I had it with bay seasoning ( I love fish). It was awesome. My dear saboteur husband sent out for pizza so I wouldn't have to cook. I sat at the table eating my fish and veggie while my husband and kids were eating pizza. Know what I was thinking? Was it how bad I wanted their pizza and how I was going to clean my 2 year old up with my tongue? Nope, I was feeling sorry for them because they were eating that nasty pizza while I was eating awesome food. Next step change my kids eating habits before they are old enough to know I am even doing it!!!

By the way people....got on the scale this morning and guess what ----released 4 pounds last night. This is the 1st time my scale has gone that direction in such a long time.

Today I am going to the waterpark. Something I love and dread at the same time. I just keep thinking how next year I am going to be wearing my bikini to the mall, the grocery store--just kidding but I will be loving the waterpark next year!!!! Thank you HCG!!

Starting the Journey to get my life back

Today is July 12 2010 and I am staring the HCG "diet" today at 259.8 lbs. I feel like I want to eat but I am sure it is just habit. I have my food ready for the day and my drops at hand so I feel I can make it.

A little background into who I am and why I am doing this..I use to be so fun. I have always been heavy but I use to still be the life of the party. I got married to a wonderful man and have two beautiful children ( 2&5) both c-sections. I have begun to stay home all the time. I never want to go anywhere or do anything. It is too much hassle to get up, get dressed, get the kids dressed and carry this body around. Somehow my boobs are my biggest problem. They have gotten to H's...who knew bras came that big!!! They are the biggest part of me. I have no more friends left, I mean they are around but everyones got their own stuff going on. So I tried to join moms groups. I don't know if it because I act funny (don't think that is it) or because I am fat but no one tries to even talk to me unless I start it but it doesn't last long. I have become that fat woman. Remember, everyone use to love me so I do have social skills. People say weight doesn't matter but all you have to do is be fat to know that is not true. My kids are my everything and I don't want they to be ostracized because I am fat. I also want to take them to Disney world and be able to fit on the rides. Ok, enough about me. I am just praying to God that this diet works. It has my full attention.
