Bad. Bad. Bad.

Yesterday was Bad. Well, actually it was a GREAT day, but I made a BAD choice. My mom came and spent time with us then we went to the Midnight showing of Eclipse. What was my bad choice? We had Panda for dinner. We both love it... and I don't get to see her very often... so it had to be Panda. I don't regret it, it was delicious. And honestly, I prepped all day for it by not eating anything else (well I did have Popcorn and Licorice and Dippin Dots at the theater!) But I still gained 3lbs. Yeah. Apple Day today! But it was such a fun day with her! My little boy just absolutely loves her, as do I.

When I stopped my last round of HCG the beginning of May, I was at a 21lbs loss total from January. I went to San Diego, enjoyed a day at Disneyland and spent much-needed time with family. All the while only gaining 5lbs back. 5lbs I could handle. My pants still fit nicely. I still felt great.
Then we came home and I don't know what happened. I just gave up, I guess. Ice cream, cookies, and chips set me back another 4lbs. 4lbs doesn't seem like much, but it was just enough to make my pants a little tight.
So with another month rolling around, I decided to start one more round, with hopes of losing another 20lbs. That way when it's over, if I gain some back, it won't make my pants uncomfortable. Last time I had a hard time dropping below 190 and when I finished I bobbled between 190-200. If I can get to 180 this time and bobble between 180-190 I'll be good! I may even get down to a size 12! Those numbers seem awfully high... but you have to take into account I'm almost 5'8" tall. Normal for me is 160, so says the BMI scale. Which, by the way, I hate. I will be perfectly happy with 180ish.

So that's my story for today.... I'm back on the program. I feel great, and I'm super excited! I started last Tuesday, and so today marks the end of Week #1. I've lost 6.5lbs so far. Funny thing is, during my Load Days, I actually LOST weight! So I took an extra Load Day to try and gain extra.... but I still ended up losing. It was very strange!

Here's to two more weeks of 500 Calories, and the return of fruits and veggies to my diet! They really do wonders to your self-esteem and over-all health!

I'm in love....

Have you tried it yet? It comes in many different flavors (which I tried this week... all are decent, but my favorite is the Original). Did you know Coconut water is the next best thing to Water itself? It's full of NATURAL electrolytes, more potassium than a banana, no fat, no cholesterol, and no preservatives! It helps hydrate you and it's good for babies and toddlers with upset tummies! Great for kidney stones also! I had no idea!!

I've always loved coconut.... coconut cream pie, coconut ice cream, EVERYTHING. Now I love the water too! Yum!!

Go, try some! If you live in the same little town as I do, you can find it in the "Hippy" aisle of Smith's for about $1 a carton, less than soda! :)

Mmmmm.... I need to get me some more. I drank my last one this morning!

HCG Works!

Wow, it has been about a month since I posted last.

Since I've stopped using HCG I've taken a trip to San Diego, including a day at Disneyland. I've visited my mom in Arizona, and I've eaten pretty much anything I want.

I've only been checking my weight on a weekly basis... and I'm nervous each time I do.

BUT.... It really hasn't changed much! I'm staying right within 3-4lbs of my ending weight! I was so afraid once I stopped and started eating normal foods I'd gain all of it back. I'm super excited that I haven't! This craziness really does work! Hurray!!

I do miss the super healthy foods I was eating... but I have no desire to make them right now! lol.
