Not a great morning... going to switch back to no breakfast and see if that helps any. Ready for this round to be over. Going to wait the suggested 6 weeks between rounds this next time with 36+ lbs to go I don't have time to waste on rounds like this.

Start: 151.4
Today: 146.2
Gain: 0.4
Total 5.2

Yeah 11 days 5lbs. I looked at day 11 from my last round and saw I had gained 0.4 that day also of course the day before I had lost 3lbs so it didn't sting as much then.

Lunch: 8oz coffee, 28oz water, 4oz crawfish, 4oz cucumber, 1 apple
Dinner: 23oz water, 4oz shrimp, 4oz celery, 8 strawberries

R2P2D7 chug chug

Just chugging along. Yesterday I felt horrible and beyond exhausted! I am using the same bottle of drops from round 1 and worried they may have gone south. If I don't feel better today then I am going to switch to a new bottle. If that doesn't work then I am afraid I may have started back to soon and will need to stop and wait 3 more weeks. Which we all know I really don't want to do! I can't walk around being so unfunctional though.

Start: 151.4
Today: 148.4
Lose: 1.2
Total: 3

Not a shabby lose espically after yesterday's dud. If I can stay in that range then I will have around a 20lb lose which will obviously be nice. Going to have my fruit for breakfast again today since I will be out running more errands.

Breakfast: 8oz coffee, 28oz water, 1 apple
Lunch: 8oz coffee, 28oz water, 4oz shrimp, 1 tomato
Dinner: 23oz water, 4oz fish, 4oz asparagus, 10 strawberries

Today has been much better than yesterday. No hunger today and much more energy! Here's hoping for a good lose tomorrow!  Goodnight

Thursday, March 1, 2012

R2P2D6 blah blah

Not so great a lose today. Whatever only 17 more days then back to good food and a girl scout cookie! Trying not to stress or overthink it and just go with the flow. I'm not very good at that though. On my first round my third lose day was pretty low also. I had my apple for breakfast since usually on Thursday I can't eat lunch until 1 or sometimes 2.

Start: 151.4
Today: 149.6
Lose: 0.2
Total: 1.8

I know I will have better loses just thinking I will have to give myself more time in the maintenance phase after this round.

Breakfast: 8oz coffee, 28oz water, 1 apple
Lunch: 8oz coffee, 28oz water, 4oz fish, 4oz celery
Dinner: 23oz water, 4oz shrimp, 4oz asparagus

Writing this early in the day so I am sure today will be even longer than yesterday since I am already ready to see tomorrow's weight!

R2P2D5 looking better

Speaking of looking better, I need to try to remember to have the husband take a new picture later. Got off all the load weight and am now on losing new weight yay! Had a small headache last night but it was a stressful day so not sure it had anything to do with the diet. Going to have chicken instead of shrimp today and different vegetables. Hopefully I can keep up the 2+ losses at least during the first week. Looking for a 20-25lbs total lose this round.

Start: 151.4
Today: 149.8 (oh yeah in the 140s!)
Lose: 2.2
Total R2: 1.6
Total: 26.6

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

R2P2D4 hmmmm

So not what I was hoping for but some people said it was most likely because of the chocolate delights. So yeah won't be having those today! There is always tomorrow right? The dreaded girl scout cookies are here but I will just be freezing those till April! No trouble sleeping yet either so that is good also.

Start: 151.4
Today: 152

R2P2D3 lets go

Been a pretty easy smooth day so far. Only gained 0.8 this morning so only gained total of 2 lbs during my two load days. Really hoping for a 4+ weight loss tomorrow but worried that since i did such a short p3 and no p4 that it won't be as good. I guess we will see in the morning!

Gain: 2

Breakfast: 8oz coffee, 28oz water

Also going to eat more fish this time and see how that goes!</p>

Day 21 made it

Woohoo 3 weeks of phase 3 done! Starting my drops again tomorrow! My LDW from R1P2 was 152.8 my weight from day 1 of phase 3 was 151.0 my weight this morning was 151.6.  Can not weight to start losing again so tired of being overweight!!! Hope you are ready for daily updates again!

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Day 19 almost done

Three more days of phase 3!!! Then starting Round 2!! I will be loading Saturday and Sunday then Monday will be the beginning of the 500 calories again and I so can not wait!!! By the end of round 2 phase 2 I will most likely be in the 120s!! OK to catch you up from Day 16 to now:
Day 16: 150.2 lost 1.4 um oops more than 2lbs under LDW
Day 17: 149.4 lost 0.8 OK way to far past LDW
Day 18: 151 gain 1.6 fixed that problem with a few drinks
Day 19: 151.4 gain 0.4 not bad for having lunch out with a friend and pizza for dinner!

Day 1 of phase 3 I was 151.0lbs so if I end on that in three days that would be great! Either way I think I maintained pretty stinking good! Once I start Round 2 Phase 2(R2P2) I will go back to blogging everyday and listing food again! I will be doing more fish this time and not eating the same food twice in a day. Also going to have the chocolate delights minus the agave nectar. 120s here I come! Have a great day!

Saturday, February 18, 2012

It was just crazy busy so had to grab something! 6 more days till I start drops can not wait!!! While yes I did lose 25lbs I am still at the very top of being overweight though. Took a comparison picture yesterday. The top picture is phase 2 day 8.

Start: 176.4

Total: 24.8


Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Down another pound in the last two days. Sitting at 151.4 which is 1.4 under LDW. Have seemed to stabilize pretty well between 151.0 - 152.6 with the range I could be in being 150.8-154.8. Still just ready to get back to losing! Going to wait till I make 21 days though which is only 9 more days!!

Start: 176.4
Today: 151.4
Lose: 0.6
Total: 25.0

Sunday, February 12, 2012

Day 9 still going

Saturday morning I lost 0.8 yay! Went out to dinner and had a few drinks and some off p3 meals. Figured I would have some gain this morning but somehow ended up with a 0.4 loss putting me back down to 151 even. Things keep going this way I will end p3 on day 21 instead of 28 and get back to losing!!! Tomorrow I will try to get back on track of listing what I eat and all that!

Friday, February 10, 2012

Day 7 grrr

Grrr up 0.6. P3D7 -0.2 under LDW. The only two things that could have possibly caused a gain yesterday is the type of hamburger meat I am using ( have gained everyday I ate it) or I made these chocolate delights with to much agape nectar this time around. Going to have my leftovers from dinner (the hamburger) for lunch and no chocolates and see what happens tomorrow. Supposed to workout today but if I do it will throw off the whole test...

Breakfast: 2 eggs, 2 meatballs

Uhhh some other stuff. This was the night of my daughters sleepover so I was a little busy...

Thursday, February 9, 2012

Day 6 ounces

Up to 151.6 still 1.2 under LDW but not liking this slow creep up. I think I am on the to much protein train. Going to throw in some more veggies and cut out the bacon that was cured with sugar. These small 0.2 oz gains are going to add up if I'm not careful, so trying to keep it in check. Thursdays are my busy days and grocery shopping but I have no clue anymore about what I need to buy!

Breakfast: 1 egg,1 mushroom, 1 cup grapes
Snack: 1 apple
Lunch: 4-5oz tuna dip, 3oz celery

<p>Start weight: 176.4<br>
Today's weight: 153.2<br>
Today's lose: 0.8

Day 28 zeroooo

So much for fish... 12 more days, 12 more days. I am thinking of doing 4 weeks of p3, then 23 days of p2, then 4 weeks of p3 and one last round of p3. It seems I slowed remarkably after day 21 and am now beating my head against the wall. So the short rounds might keep me more motivated.

Start weight: 176.4
Today's weight: 154
Today's. Lose: 0.0
Total lose: 22.4

Obviously 22.4lbs in 28 days is nothing to shake a stick at but dang it I still have 46 more lbs to go!!

Breakfast: 8oz coffee, 28 oz water, 9 strawberries
Lunch: 8oz coffee, 28oz water, 2oz cucumbers,  4oz shrimp
Dinner: 5oz water, 4oz fish, 4oz tomatoes, 1 apple

So apparently I have been drinking around 100oz of liquid a day. So cutting it down to 77oz tonight which is exactly half my body weight in oz. Also I read somewhere that eating different fruit, veggies, and meat during the day might help. We shall see tomorrow. Good night all!

Saturday, January 28, 2012

Day 27 better

A little happier with today's results. Gives me hope I can reach or get pretty close to my goal of 34lbs in the 40 days.

Start weight: 176.4
Today's weight: 154
Today's lose: 0.8
Total lose: 22.4

So maybe the fish is good... or maybe who knows... having fish again either way.

Today's food...
Breakfast: 28oz water, 8 oz coffee, 1 apple
Lunch: 28oz water, 3.5oz fish, 2oz spinach

Dinner: 28oz water, 4oz fish, 4oz asparagus, 1 apple So we'll see how this goes. Hoping for at least a pound but I'll take whatever I can get! Goodnight!

Another comparison

Ok the first should be day 27 and the other should be day 17. There is only a 4.6 lbs difference.

Friday, January 27, 2012

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Day 22 crasssh

Well went on a bike ride with the family yesterday and then forgot my last 28oz bottle of water until after 8 at night. These are bad things for me on this diet.  So I ended up weighing 3 times this morning. First time I was up 0.4. Can you say unhappy!!! Then of course my husband, who ate pizza for lunch and yummy tacos for dinner, LOST 2.2lbs!!! After waiting 30 minutes I weighed again this time being up only 0.2. OK fine getting better. So waited another little bit and finally got it down to no loss no gain. The only redeeming thing is I lost half an inch off my waist! So today. I learned no water after 8, just don't do it!! Also unfortunately for my kids no more bike rides until I lose these 14 pounds!
 Todays menu :
 Breakfast : 8oz coffee, 28oz water, 8 strawberries
 Lunch : 8oz coffee, 28oz water, 3.5oz chicken, 3.5oz asparagus
 Dinner : 28oz water, 3.5oz chicken, 1.5oz spinach, 1apple 
Here is to hoping for a lose tomorrow! In a hurry tonight. Goodnight!

Day 21 BOOM!!!!!

Did you hear me? Sorry if I woke you. Praising God this morning for 20.4lbs gone!!!! When I started this at the beginning of January (um yeah 21days ago)  I honestly never actually expected for it to work. You can bet I am a believer now!!! All I can think in my head is by the end of May of this year I will weigh 108lbs!!! I will no longer be obese or overweight. I will be directly in the middle of normal!!

Start weight : 176.4
Today's weight : 156
Todays lose : 1.0
Total lose : 20.4

14 more pounds to go until I move onto phase 3. Few more days I will take another picture.  Anyways what I ate today :
Breakfast : 8oz coffee, 28oz water
Lunch : 28oz water, 3.5oz shrimp, 1 cuccumber, 8 strawberries (milkshake)
Dinner : 28oz water, 8 oz coffee, 1 apple, 4 oz chicken, 2 cups spinach

Not to bad a day. Excited to get through these next 14 pounds and move back to some real food and working out to tone up what I have lost and then start all over again. See you tomorrow hopefully lighter!

Todays weight: 157.0
Todays lose: 1.0

It is so crazy that I have already gone through the 70's and 60's already! It also drives me crazy to be HAPPY to weigh in the 150s!! I was 134 right before getting pregnant with my son early 2009. Then after him he totally messed up some button in my body because I could not lose a pound no matter how hard I worked out or how great I ate nothing would come off! Praising God everyday for leading me to this and giving me the will power to make it to my goal (15 more pounds to go!!!!) Anyways here is the totally interesting food I had today:
Breakfast: 8oz coffee, 28oz water, 8 strawberries
Lunch : 4oz shrimp, 4oz tomato, 28oz water
Di nner : 3.5 oz.chicken, 3.5oz celery, 25oz water, 1apple

OK already in bed. Praying I reach 20 tomorrow!!!! Gooodnight!

Start weight 176.4

Ate a little later than usual so finishing the water after 7 which I don't think I like. We shall see in the morning if I hit 10pounds! Hopefully I sleep better tonight.

Monday, January 9, 2012

Pictures yay

So yeah I think this illustrates enough that I'm not at an ideal weight for my height... And if not to bad it is all you are getting

Day 8 feeling good

I have been looking around at other peoples blogs and saw them update all stats daily so I think I will add that in also. They hsd before/after pictures to. I think I will scar y'all for life wih some before pictures soon!
  Start weight: 176.4 (gross!)
  Today weight: 168 all of this is in lbs by the way
  Daily loss: 1.4
  Total loss: 8.4

So better than yesterdays .6 loss so I think I will stay away from eating to late or mixing vegetables. At this rate by tomorrow I could have lost 10lbs. In 9 days!!! Two of those days were scarfing down whatever!!! I love love hcg so far! My goal for this round is 34 pounds. So at the end of this round I should be 142lbs! Then 3 weeks of maintaing, and then 3 weeks of adding yummy stuff back in. Then back to the hcg for round two. If I can lose another 34lbs that round  I will be down to 108lbs!! Being 5 foot tall I feel that will be a good weight I think. Anyways what I ate today:
Breakfat: 8oz coffee, 28oz water, 8 strawberries
Lunch: 23oz water, 1 tomatoe, 4oz chicken breast (made a sandwhich with this lol)
Dinner: 33oz water, 4oz chicken breast, 1 cup celery, and 1 apple. Cooked the chicken and celery together and then chopped up the apples and mixed! So yum!

Feeling so great on this diet! Hopeully I can sleep a little better tonight. I managed to drink 84oz in water plus the 16oz of coffee... here is to hoping tomorrow puts me at the 10lbs mark! Goodnight!

Day 7 a whole week

I could barely sleep last night. Of course the 2 year old kicking me didn't help but I just wanted to weigh myself so badly! Finally my husband gets up and I decide to give up and get up. Oh I forgot to mention yesterday my mother in law lovingly brought over this huge thing of yummy, gooey tray of cinnamon rolls!!!!! Now in her defense I didn't tell her I was on a diet yet. So get up give the kids the devil food and make a run for the bathroom! Calmly walk and get the scale as not to alert the children. Jump on it, count to 5, look down.... .6?!?!?! What?!?!?! I followed all the new "real" rules!!! Why why why?!?! Ok ok picking myself back up. Maybe it was mixing the vegetables. It could be I ate the apple after 8pm. Or the extra cup of coffee even though they say you can have as much as you want. Well there will be no mixed vegetables today! I will not save my apple either! Also just one cup of coffee regrdless! It could have been the not sleeping too... so even if it kills me I will sleep tonight! Ok ok done ranting here is what I had today:
Breakfast: 8oz coffee, 28oz water, 8 strawberries
Lunch: 4oz chicken breast and cup and a half cabbage and 23oz water Dinner: 4oz chicken breat, cup and half of aspurgas, and 1 apple oh and 28oz of water So now just have to force myself to sleep tonight and see what happens tomorrow morning.

Day 6 still going

Woke up, used the bathroom... jumped on the scale... 2.4lbs!!!! For a total of 6.4lbs!!! Loving this so far! Eating 500 calories isn't bad since the hcg makes it where you don't feel like you aren't eating. I learned a few new things today. Broccoli,grapes, and zucchini are NOT on the approved list... ooops! So went regrocery shopping to get the right stuff!  So here is what I ate on day 6:
Breakfast: 4oz coffee, 28oz water, 10 strawberries
Lunch: 4oz chicken, 2 cups cuccumber ( almost), 8oz coffee,28oz water
Dinner: 4oz SHRIMP (didn't see that coming did you!), then mix of tomatoes,celery,spinah, and onions, and 1 apple which I saved for a little later.
So here is to hoping for a good lose tomorrow! Although they say not to mix the vegetables so that worries me some. New weight 170.0! Goood night!

Saturday, January 7, 2012

Day 5 Still alive

Holy smokes! I woke up and went to the restroom to prepare to weigh myself. Got on the scale, cringed, peeked down with one eye, opened both, looked closer.... Holy smokes!!!! It said 172.4!!!! Yes in one day I lost 4lbs!!!!!! OK I can totally do this for another day!                    
Breakfast: 1 apple, 32oz of water, and 6oz of coffee with flavored splenda.        
Lunch: 4oz chicken breast and 2 cups of zucchini. I cooked these together in a pan with some water and lemon pepper seasoning with no salt or calories.  Dinner: 4oz chicken breast and 2 cups broccoli and 25 grapes. Cooked the same as lunch.          
Yes I know it seems boring but YOU can have a ton of other things... I just like making my life easy.  Excited to see how much I lose tomorrow! Who would ever think I would be excited to get on a scale!

Day 4 the beginning

OK I am no writer but wanted to track this journey through using the hcg diet. I got my bottle of two month supply from walmart for $18. You can get it for a lot more online and with that you get a lot more support. So you are supposed to "load" the first two days. Which means take the drops and eat as much fatty food as you can (yay!).  I ended up having to load for three days because of grocery shopping issues.  Today I finally started the very low calorie part. My weight (yes I am going to say it!) on day 3 is 176.4!!!!                                                          
What I ate on Day 4:                                                                                                                                      
Breakfast: 6 srawberries and  32oz of water. Yummy so filling!                                                        
Lunch: 4oz of chicken breast and 2 cups of brocilio. I cooked them together in a frying pan with some water and used lemon pepper seasoning with no salt or calories.                                    
Dinner: 4oz of chicken breast and 2 cups of brocilio and 1 apple. Cooked the same way as lunch.  
You can get a lot more creative with yor food but I am a creature of habit and am just fine eatting the same thing everyday! Guess we will see if I lose any tomorrow morning!
