200th post, Day 3 of HCG Diet

Today starts the reduced calorie portion of my diet, and I must say I'm excited about it!

I weighed in this morning.

So I was successful in gaining weight during my binge days. ;-)

I am currently enjoying a warm mug of peach tea with Truvia; a natural sweetener derived from Stevia. It's really good.

I have all my chicken baked and separated into individual serving portions. All my broccoli, cucumbers, celery and strawberries are washed and cut up. I need to go to the store for more apples and oranges, since my kiddos ate the ones I bought for the diet.

Other than that, I'm ready to go!! I'm excited to start see the scale going down. I really don't think it's going to be that hard to stick to this... at least not initially. Maybe smack dab in the middle of the 3 weeks when I'm sick of chicken. ;-) And I'll be eating much healthier than I've managed to for a very long time.

So here's to a new day, a new beginning, a new me! =)


  1. How exciting! The difference between you and me is, I was esatic to see that number on the scale! :)But, yes, I am a 10 at this weight an 8 at 160. We'll see how far I'll go.

    I don't think you'll get sick of chicken - you've always enjoyed it. And, that's a great variety of fruits/veggies. You can do this!!!!

  2. I'm so excited for you, RA!! I'm on day 14 of an extreme diet/workout regime (like I told you =) and I can relate to that butterflies/excitement feeling you get when you think - "this is IT! Day 1 - I can SO do this. Oh, I am so excited to see where I am in a week! In TWO weeks! I've been waiting for this, working for this, for so long.........!"

    I know you'll do fantastic and it'll be easy to stick to it this weekend with your friends around to hold you accountable. Especially MaryAnne - I haven't seen her recently but she tells me she's lost alot! Very cool. =) See you soon!
