WOOT! Today marks 30 pounds gone from my highest weight. (Ok, I may be 4 ounces shy, but I didn't have a scale that read in increment of .2 when I began, so I don't know exactly what I started at. I just know it was below 173.6) I started this blog when I was doing calorie counting/exercise and had lost 7 pounds on my own. Then I stalled forever until I began doing HCG. Today I am 30 pounds lighter!!!!
Here is what I looked like at the beginning of the HCG diet. Excuse the photo; my daughter took it, I wasn't ready, but none of the other ones turned out. ;-)
This is me yesterday. Again, sorry for the small/dumb picture. Since I broke my camera we were using my cell phone. "We" being my 5 year old daughter. ;-)
Those are my size 10 capris that I miraculously fit into. It's very strange for me to wrap my brain around. I went clothes shopping over the weekend and I was pulling sizes 10-14 off the rack to try on. The 14's were definitely too big. I fit mostly 10/12's. Insane. But a good insane!
I have 4 days left of drops. I can't wait to be done, although today I have kept myself very busy with cleaning... and I mean DEEP CLEANING... my house. It has been interesting to note that I haven't been nearly as hungry or tempted to eat as when I sit around and read or surf the web, etc... So I plan to keep myself busy these last 4 days.
If I can get down to 142 by Friday I will have lost 10 pounds this round and I will be very pleased with that. Even if I don't, I'm not disappointed with my results. The only dumb thing is that I am definitely going to have to do another round. I had hoped to be in the 130's and get the rest off with Atkins. I plan to do Atkins once I finish the drops, as that is what Dr. Simeon (the man who "created" the HCG diet) recommends.
Atkins works well for me because I LOVE meat and cheese. And I can drink all the sugar free zebra (white and milk chocolate) americanos with cream I want! ;-)
Hope you all are having a great day!
