end of week 1 on P2

So yesterday I had gained and was sure I was going to lose today on the scale.

And I was right! I started this week at 165.6 and ended it at 157.8. A 7.8 loss this week, I'll take it!

I'm tired the past the couple days - not sure if it's the new diet changes or what, but yuck. I hope the energy kicks in next week. :)

P2 R3 day 6

The weigh in this morning wasn't fun - I'm up .4 this morning. This could be due to eating all that chicken the night before last ... or that I really didn't drink enough water yesterday. OR the face that I forgot my 'juice' the other night. Either way. No major set back and today will change it. :)

HCG life changes

I have to give alot of credit to this miraculous stuff in a little amber bottle...

I have always wanted to have a breast reduction, ever since having babies - which was 6 years ago. They did their job (nursing) and then I was done w/ them.

I was always afraid of doing it before I was 'thin enough' as then if I lost weight, I'd lose what I had left. So I needed to lose, therefore trying all kinds of things that didn't work.

Til HCG ...

I lost 32.8 lbs (but who's counting?) with HCG in 2 rounds (11 weeks).

I had a consultant with a plastic surgeon, who was interested to hear that I had lost this weight and never changed bra size. Only the band went from a 38 to a 36, but was still a DD in the cup. The volume of course was different (much softer after losing weight) but no smaller.

I had the breast reduction on 8/7/09 ... and feel like it was a dream come true.

Losing weight made me more confident in myself, and confident enough to do something that I had only talked about/dreamed of. I have stressed to the Dr. that I'm going to lose more weight and he is confident that nothing will change with my new girls! :)

I have to thank myself for the determination with HCG to not cheat, and follow the protocol 100% (except once!) and the HCG itself for being amazing.

week 1 over! VLCD day 5

I survived week one!

Hardly any hunger this week, but not much energy either. I did have to have some bloodwork done for school, including a TB test and a tetanus shot - maybe I just feel funky from all of it in combination.

Last night I went out to dinner and had a chicken ceasar salad minus the dressing, croutons and cheese. Lettuce and chicken. I ate the whole portion of chicken, which I'm pretty sure was more than 3.5 pre cooking - but I hadn't eaten since noon, and it was 7 pm and I was hungry! We'll see if I pay for it tomorrow.

This morning I weighed in at 158.8 which is 6.8 down from Mondays weight of 165.6. My LIW was 150 so once I get there, the rest is just a bonus. I was happy at 150, however I'm thinking I'd like to see what 140 looks like! :)

Also, I forgot the 'juice' last night - I fell asleep and realized when I woke up at 4 am that I had forgotten. argh. I've only done that twice in 2 other rounds. annoying!

I keep chugging the water as it is a huge factor for me, I know I don't drink enough. I bribe myself - as I LOVE hot flavored tea with stevia - that if I drink 2 bottles of water, I can have a tea. :)

R3 VLCD Day 3

So I loaded all weekend and had some yummy things but not everything I wish I had eaten, now that I think back. I didn't even eat any Ben & Jerrys! ;)

I was at 165.6 on Monday morning ... and the VLCD was starting.
I lost 3 lbs overnight and weighed in at 163.6 on Tuesday.
This morning (wednesday) I woke up and was at 160.6 and am thrilled for a 5 lb loss in 3 days.

I made about 6 loaves of zucchini bread today and 24 zucchini muffins ... and never cheated once. I just get into the 'zone' and swear that I don't even have the urge to eat the stuff I bake.

P2 for R3 ...

The day is here!

Not sure I'm ready to give up the stuff I've been eating - as summer isn't over YET ... but I am ready to see some weight loss on the scale and in my clothes.

I have not weighed in this morning ... and loading day #1 has begun.

Mixed up and took my 'juice'already, and am having my coffee ... thinking about all the stuff I'm going to eat today. Bryce told me yesterday that he was excited that I was starting my diet again ... because he will get to eat garbage with me. Cream puffs specifically. (niiiiice! I thought he was being supportive to my loss!)

So off we go again. Hopefully this will be the last round of HCG for me. Being that I started at 183.5 ... and I am still in the 150's somewhere ... I'm still ahead of the game. I tend to not get greedy about the loss ... I don't say "I want to be 130 lbs" because truth be told - at 150 I got alot of 'wow you are skinny, how much more do you want to lose and where you losing it FROM?'.
The boyfriend loves me any way that I am ... which makes me happy.

So here we go! Load Day #1 in process!

truths & time!

Hi all! Been a long time since I blogged!

I stopped P2 and entered P3 and then visited Myrtle Beach, SC for a week. It was not good for maintaining of the weight loss. I knew that it was a possibility that I wouldn't be as successful being my vacation so close to ending P2. A week in the sun with drinking everything BUT water, will help you gain and hold on to some weight.

I gained about 7 lbs back over LIW ... and then was able to stabelize that. I wasn't too happy about it, but now that I look back and see that I had an amazing summer with my kids - I'm not worried about it. I know that R3 will take care of the 7# and then the rest I wanted to lose, too.

Next week I'm going to start P2 for the 3rd time and am very excited about it! I also have an old friend starting with me, and she's just as excited. I know we'll be great.

See you back on the blogs sooner than later! :) hope you all had a great summer!
