I lost .6 today. Only 3 days (including today) left of drops, but I'm not sure if I have enough drops for all 3 days. I'm sort of hoping I run out a day early. ;-)
I'm picking up a rotisserie chicken today; I can't believe I didn't think of it before. It probably has a tad more fat than a baked chicken, but at this point I don't care. I simply can't choke down one more bit of baked chicken. It's starting to taste really "gamey". Bleh. I'm also out of low fat hamburger, but don't want to buy more since I'm almost done.
Today I'm wearing a vest that had previously "fit".... like a sausage casing! Today it zipped up with ease and there is even room to spare!! I am sooo excited about this. I'm also wearing my pre-children jeans... and they are starting to fall off, straight from the dryer! Not bad enough that I need to change, but still sliding down. Guess I'll have to hit up Maurice's for some new jeans! YAY!!!
Last night was incredibly difficult. I spent all day cleaning and working, and then once the kids were in bed and I was settled in with my book (again with the non-stop mention of cheese danish!) I was craving the Sour Cream and Cheddar chips, the Norwegian milk chocolate bar and the Cinnamon Crisp cookies in my pantry. Dear goodness me, the cravings were SO strong! PMS much!? LOL :-) It was all I could do not to run out and grab my goodies, jump back in bed and munch and read to my heart's delight.
But, I didn't do it. I can tell my self-control is wearing very thin, however. I'm hoping that once i start maintenance and can eat solid, yummy food again that I won't feel as hungry and tempted to junk food. I do remember the last few days being the absolute hardest before, so this isn't new.
My sister and my mom just finished their rounds of HCG and both lost around 18 pounds. Not too shabby for 21 days! 19 if you don't count the binge days. My sister has lost a total of 25 pounds; she started HCG but ended up getting really sick and had to stop. She took a few weeks off and started again, and completed the whole second cycle with no problems.
KUDOS to you both, Mom and Liz!!!
Anyway, I'm off to get my chicken and take lunch to my hubs. Since he commutes 45 minutes to 1.5 hours each way (depending on traffic) it will take up a good chunk of the day, which is just what the kiddos and I need. To get out of the house and see our favorite guy. He's been gone a lot recently and it's wearing on all of us. So, we're off to treat ourselves to a mid-day Daddy visit!
