Saturday I think I lost my mind... I was already due for a steak day from the last day of P2, lol, and I ate like a pig. Nothing I wasn't supposed to have in P3, but I ate tons of it. And I ate pork rinds. I know from Round 1 P3 my body does NOT like pork rinds, but I was hungry, and it beat the alternative of cheating as I was in an environment with hot dogs, bbq, funnel cakes, etc. I stepped on the scale yesterday morning and was 6.2 lbs ABOVE LIW! Holy cow! =O I was going to wait until today (Monday) to do steak day, but decided I'd better go ahead & get my steak day on yesterday lol! I'm now 1.8 above LIW, so I'm glad I did. I'm not mad about my "highest" weekly weight being under 135. Before R3 my "highest" weight (on Monday mornings after the weekend) was on the average around 143. I was NOT okay with that. I'll just say, I LOVE my low weight, and I even LOVE 130. I can't tell you how many compliments I've gotten since the end of R3!!! Huge difference =)
This is my personal blog relating to my daily experiences while on the HCG diet. Hopefully it will help encourage others on the protocol, and at the same time, help me to look back and see my own progress. :)
I am 31 years old, recently married, have 2 children and 2 step-children. I haven't struggled with weight loss until recently, maybe over the past two years. In my pregnancy with my youngest child, who is now almost 7, I gained 70 lbs, and within a matter of 9 months was able to lose 75 lbs like it was nothing. Four years later I had packed on half of that weight, but went through a divorce and lost the majority of it. After the stressful part of the divorce, I started to get "happy" and gain it all back. ;) So today, 3 years later and just married to an amazing man, I'm happier than ever, and also bigger than I've ever been (excluding pregnancy). I've found that casual dieting doesn't work for me. I have no willpower when it isn't "black and white" for me. That's what attracted me to the HCG diet... I came across a couple of friends who introduced me to the HCG diet and had lost 50 and 20 pounds and looked AMAZING! I decided, even though the protocol is very restrictive, this diet was for me. It's a lifestyle change, and the maintenance to keep the weight off is exactly what I've needed! My goal is to lose 20-25 lbs, and keep it off!
