Diet Progress

The last weigh in post I was coming it at 139 and I am pleased to say the results continue to be successful!

HCG is a safe quick weight loss program with proven results138.4!

At this rate I am averaging about a pound a day and I am losing weight fast!

Even though the pounds are currently falling off easily this phase of the HCG diet plan is fairly tough.  The amount of calories that I am allowed to consume each day total 500.  So, yes, I am hungry almost all day and no it is not unbearable.   My eating habits, after the first round of  HCG, never went back to  their extreme carb loving ways and the weight has stayed off!

Here is the following day weigh in:

137.8!

Another day and another pound!  Wonderful success!

I am going to take this moment and let you know right now. My goal is NOT to loose another 10-13 pounds.  I am shooting for 135 on this round.  I enjoy the curves and I have never been Twiggy.

HCG diet and my weigh ins

I am dieting again.  Never an easy or enjoyable task and as promised on my Facebook page I will be blogging the results.  It helps you guys learn about the diet AND it keeps me accountable.  A two birds with one stone thing….

If you were around in January you may remember that I participated in the HCG diet with fantastic results.  I lost 13 pounds and kept most of them off!  I was 137 at the end date of the last round and during these last few months I fluctuated in a five pound range. Not too shabby.

I am now participating in my second round of the HCG diet.  Here was my first weigh in:

Results of HCG diet

Yup this was right after my vacation so I was up a bit but not as much as I will be after my two day food overload.  I am also going to take this moment to blame my vacation for the chipped off toe nail polish.

Following my two days of consuming massive amounts of food I gained a whooping three pounds! UGH. I was silently saying to myself “The miracle of HCG had better kick in because this is ridiculous.”

The results of one day on the 500 cal. Phase 2 diet were a success!

139.6 and would you check out my nail polish now….Blame the vacation. Anyways I dropped those five bad boys.

Now to all the nay-sayers out there, I know you don’t approve and I know what you are thinking so here is my response……I’m fine and I am not passing judgement on you so don’t start with me.

I am currently further along than these pictures but I am late in blogging the results so I will blog more tomorrow.  Too many feet shots are not healthy for anyone.


Quick, Easy Smoothie

We are fighting an ugly cold in this house.  My husband brought it home from work last week and I managed, in my “No WAY are we getting sick on the birthday weekend” madness, to keep us all from getting ill….or so I thought.  The youngest was struck down Sunday morning.  Yes, STRUCK DOWN.  This drippy, blotchy, coughy, clammy little munchkin has been in a horizontal position for over 24 hours.  It’s bad. In fact, earlier today I could of sworn I saw a representative from the Department of Health and Human Services drive by to get the address of the house that needs to be quarantined.

Anyways, I asked on my Facebook Fan page  for more homeopathic remidies to feed my kiddo and myself (just in case) and a good friend recommend some plain yogurt.  I took the plain yogurt idea and ran.  Well, not really RAN, because running with yogurt is never a good idea.  I used my plain yogurt for the good of the many!  I made smoothies for the family!!

The ingredients
Fresh blackberries
Frozen strawberries
Plain yogurt 
ice 
water (to thin it out)
Stevia 
I just blended them all together until the taste was what I was looking for! After the smoothie was finished I added Echinacea extract for an added punch for the immune system.
Here is another bonus with this smoothie. It is good for us HCG dieters.  You can actually have all these ingredients on the maintenance program.  Boo YA!  

Here is my smoothie!

Notice the straw?!  I believe that no matter what age you are that a crazy straw should always be included in some part of your drinking repertoire. 
Hopefully, the amount of vitamins I have crammed down everyone’s throat in the last couple of days will keep us all safe from the cold.  If not, watch the evening news for a picture my house and a giant quarantine tape wrapped around it.


 

HCG diet – A new weight and the Valentines day hat

I have decided that I am not going to post my weight every day.  I really don’t think it is necessary and it makes me look even more obsessive than I already am.   Here is today:

HCG diet weight loss results

Can you see it?  Tilt your head to the right. Just like that —- 143.4!  It is working!   Alright, I am now going to tell you that this has actually been really tough.  Cooking for the kids and my husband has been a GIANT temptation!  Seriously, all I wanted to do the other day was eat an entire jar of peanut butter.  I didn’t but OH I wanted to.  Instead I washed my hands and ate 100gms of chicken and some tomato.

All of this time not eating has given me more time to work on hats! I had a bright idea of creating a Valentines day hat.  Now maybe it is because I don’t have daughters or maybe I am not girly enough but I don’t particularly like this “creation.”  (I am staying true to my blog and showing my failures!)

What do you think?!  I really like the pink fuzzy and the overall concept just when it was created it kinda…well…. it bit.  I am working on the new one now. Hopefully it will come out better.  Any opinions?! I actually like to here/read them. Don’t be shy!


New weigh in on the HCG diet plan

Alright – My first official weigh since the beginning. So if you all remember the scale said 150.4…..

Here is this weight this morning
HCG diet weight loss total 148 pounds

Can you see that number – 148.4 baby!   Now, I know some of you are saying, wow that is too fast.  She is going to gain it all back…Well, think what you want, I am very pleased.

Yesterday was hard but seeing the results this morning is keeping me on track.  Plus I got four orders for hats yesterday so my hands will be busy with hats and not food!


Chicken is slimy and gross to the touch. Day 3 – HCG Diet Plan

Day 3.  First day of the new eating regimen. Whew..Is the day over yet?

Okay, it’s not really too bad.  Just because my mouth filled with saliva over the topic of mashed potatoes and I took the advice of a Facebook reader and squashed a couple of Goldfish in revenge (they were mocking me), doesn’t mean I am not handling today well….

I was productive.  I cooked chicken.  In 100 gram increments.  The piles of chicken were small .  Like these sentences.

Chopped up and ready to be cooked
HCG diet requires 100gms of chicken for protein
See I am remaining accountable…here is the weight and a peeler
HCG diet recommends 100 grams of protein in a meal. A simple scale can be found at the store for correct weight
Each mound is 100 grams. No approximation.  Lightly seasoned with pepper
HCG diet chicken portions are prepared ahead of time to allow for quick meals
I forgot to take pictures of the end result. Those “piles” shrink, just in case you were thinking, “Hey, that looks like a lot of chicken. Not too bad.” You are wrong. It’s a small amount.
It is now 2:30 and I had my apple snack.  I can not wait until this is not something I am thinking about all day everyday!  
New Topic!
I have some awesome hats I am working on!!!  Here is one that has been recently finished.

HCG -The secret is out

So Phase 2 of the HCG diet begins tomorrow. It is extremely structured and limited. I am not too worried about most of the eating rules except coffee. I love coffee. Passionately.

Anyways, as I was crying about dumping out my coffee creamer, I started to wonder exactly what 100 grams of food looks like. (I am allowed 100 grams of chicken/beef/shrimp and a couple of others) I went and found various objects to see and I weighed them.

HCG diet drops have quick weight loss results
There you have it.  100 grams of water, carrots, blueberries, change, kitchen items, and dinosaurs from the dinosaur train…..It’s a bad day for Buddy, Mr. Pteranodon, and their friends.  Just kidding, I am not going to eat the Dinosaurs. Even though it was fun freaking out my three year old!  I’m mean.
Ok – Next post tomorrow!

The HCG Diet — Dramatic Music Required —

Alright – Here we go – The diet starts today. Officially.

Now, before I go into the details of my diet I must ask for NO haters (towards me and the website I will be linking). Everyone has an opinion and that is great but if your opinion is mean I am not going to publish your comment….

The diet program that I have decided to participate in is the HCG diet. If you click the link you can learn a little more detail than I am going to describe right now.  I know the owners and I know several people that have done the diet with amazing success and the end goal here is not only to loose weight but to change my eating habits.  How much do I want to loose – 20 lbs, right now.

I am currently on the first day which means I have two days of loading up in order to go through Phase 1. 

I am not really nervous about cheating on the Phase 1 process, which is the homeopathic drops and 500 calories,  but I am a little worried about Phase 2 which starts to bring back everything but the sugars and carbs.  We will see!  This is a trial and error blog so I will be logging in the process and SHOWING you my progress.

Do you want to know how much I weigh and how tall I am? — Gulp — I am actually nervous posting this…

HCG Diet gives results
So there you go.  I am not obese but I am not where I want to be…I will log the process and you can come along for the ride if you would like!  
Also – I am NOT being sponsored or paid by Adventures in HCG.  I am doing this all on my own.  If it doesn’t work or if there are problems I will be writing about it. 

Resolutions??! Do you do them?

Do you do resolutions?  If you do, what typically do they focus on?  Personally speaking I am not big on resolutions. In the past, when I had the go forth and do it attitude, my resolutions were strong in January/February, began to sputter around March and came to a screeching hault in May.  It happened every year and so I decided one year that my resolution would be to NOT make anymore.  I kept that one…easily.

Well, I am breaking the rules this year.  I am making two new resolutions and I am going to blog about it and maybe someone here will keep me accountable.

Resolution Number 1:
 I am going on a diet.  Starting January 3.  The goal is a between 15-20lbs. I have a plan and I will be blogging about it in great detail.  During this time I will ask for no hatters… Please be nice or I will hunt you down and force feed you cookies.
Resolution Number 2: 
Get out of Debit.  We are a Dave Ramsey Financial Peace practicing family.  We have been doing the cash only budget since about May and have not touched the credit card at all.  My husband and I have crunched the numbers and we can do it! I will also be blogging about this probably monthly.

I am excited.  However, I do believe that I will not be in the best of spirits after the third…
Anyways – What are your resolutions?! Seriously, I actually want to know.  Are you going to blog about them?  If you are will you attach the link so I can see?
