Round 1 phase 2 Day 6

weight: 264
Down: 1
total lost this round: 9
total lost over all: 9

Sorry kind of took the weekend off.  I know I know usually I do that when I have had a few bad days but no, not this time.  Just too busy to really take the time.   I am actually doing pretty well.  As you can see I am down 9 pounds in 5 days (cause today is actually the 6th day)   Best part is the ravenous hunger is GONE.  I am actually having trouble eating the amount of food I was supposed to eat for lunch today so I think that is awesome.   

Not too much else to add right now.  OH I will say my heart grew a few sizes this weekend when my 11 year old daughter told me 'mommy I can tell already' and she pointed right to the area I am noticing change in.  I usually have crazy stomach bloat but that is the first place I seem to be seeing change.   I really need to do measurements, I will try my best to get that done in the morning and add it to tomorrow's post.  Now where is that measuring tape?

R1P2D3 the day the dietbet began

weight: 268.8
Down: .8
total lost this round: 4.8
total lost over all: 4.8

I am totally not surprised with today's results.  Not that .8 is anything to be upset about but several factors come into play on why I think it wasn't more.  First of all, there is no way I can expect to lose close to 4 pounds every day.  As long as I am losing, I am happy.  Not to mention I am still at better than 2lbs a day so far.  If this was to keep up that would mean I could lose 60lbs by the time I finish this one 30 day round.  I really don't expect that to be happy.  Would I LIKE it too?  SURE of course I would but I will be happy if I can finish this first round down 30.  Another factor is that yesterday was HARD, I was really hungry from the time I woke up until the time I went to sleep.  I didn't have any terrible cravings or anything but I was just HUNGRY. I had 'miracle' noodles with chicken and a little tomato sauce for lunch, an apple for a snack and then some lean beef with onions for dinner.  I was still hungry so I ended up having a little of the roast chicken I had made for the family for dinner.  
The final factor would probably be the miracle noodles themselves.  I mean like HCG Chica says they are basically the nutritional equivalent of cardboard.  It is all fiber and sometimes takes a minute to leave the body.  

I woke up feeling a little less hungry this morning.  The head ache is still there so I have had another cup of black coffee.  I am hoping the headache leaves soon.  

The last thing I wanted to talk about today is Dietbet.  I have finally broken down and signed up for one with the some other members of my travel agency.  I have 4 weeks to lose 4% of my weight, according to my weigh in this morning that means 10.8lbs.   I actually hope they don't red flag me or something if they think I am losing too much for it to be legit!   The pot last I looked was up to $140 and if I understand it correctly, everyone who loses at least 4% will divided that up at the end. 

So that is it for my ramblings for today.  Two days of VLCD's down 28 to go......I can do this, right?

R1P2D2 The day the day I broke out the black coffee

weight: 269.6
Down: 3.6
total lost this round: 4
total lost over all: 4

Day one was actually not so bad.  I had a nice lean steak salad for lunch with and orange and then for dinner I sautéed some chicken and put it with some cabbage. 

I am very proud of myself, I didn't cheat at all and well I guess it shows with that nice almost 4 pound loss.  I even got in all the water I am supposed to get.  

Today however is already starting as a struggle. I know day two can be more difficult.  Last night I started getting a REALLY bad headache.  I think it has to be from going cold turkey from sugar and caffeine.  I woke up today with HORRIBLE headache pain and also really hungry!  I decided to try to ease both issues with a cup of coffee BUT yes I am drinking it black.   

I WILL look good in a bathing suit for my cruise!  I will NOT fail this time!!!!

That said I will be very happy to grocery shop tomorrow, cause man we are low on EVERYTHING!

I am BACK and fatter than ever!

So I have been here before but I REFUSE to find myself here again.  My mind is in a better place than I have ever been before.  I have to do this for ME this time and I will do it.   

If you read my past blog posts you will see a few years ago I lost around 60 lbs on HCG.  I went from a 18/20 to size 14 jeans.  Reading that now makes me want to pure cry but I wont.  Life got in the way and I just have to accept I let myself get off track.  I am now the biggest I have ever been. (even bigger than when I was 9 months pregnant with my 9.4 pound baby!)  I refuse to spend anymore of my life being exhausted and embarrassed to leave the house.  It is time to get hold of my life!

My reward????? (well besides a happier life) My first Disney Cruise in the fall! I REFUSE to be embarrassed to leave my cabin! 

Once again I am going to give HCG a shot.  Only this time I am going pure with the original protocol which helped me lose 60 pounds the first time I did it.  No cheating!  

I actually started yesterday with my two loading days.  I am going to do 3 rounds to start.  My plan is to do 30 day rounds of very low calorie days with 21 days between each one where I will add in more calories to lock in the weight loss.  That will take me through September.  I am going to take a break from the HCG for my vacation and the holidays.  Depending on where I find myself at the end of my first three rounds will decide if I need to do anymore at that point.   

So stay tuned and cheer my on along this journey.  I would really love the support.
