Rapidly coming off!

Day 4!!! So far, so good!!  Sorry I haven't posted every day...I was going to try & just sometimes doesnt work out that way!  I have lost a total of 5.8lbs so far!! I'm pretty happy about that.  I only hope it continues....a pound a day would be wonderful, but I know when I did this before it didn't happen that way. I can only go day-by-day!

It is SO hard to be good...but with the LBS coming off & summer around the block....I have to do this!!! I am a sugar fanatic!! I could probably go without the bread, but sugar is my frienemy!!! LOL  I love bread too, but sugar comes first I think! :)

I went to the gym tonight for about a half hour....hope it doesn't eff anything up....we're technically not supposed to work out on this diet....but it was just the we will see!! :)

Thanks to everyone who reads my posts.....I know they're not creative....but I'll get there.   The more response I get, the more I will try!! I don't want to talk to myself here!! HAHAH

Headache City....I don't miss this!

Hello there!!! Today is day one on the VLCD (very low calorie diet) and I feel okay.  I have a headache big time!!! I'm detoxing, so of course I feel like fun though! :o)

For lunch I had a can of green beans & an apple.  I brought some chicken too, but ughhh something about it made me want to horf !  It was like frozen fajita-type chicken.  I tried a piece & about it went buh-bye! By the end of the work day, I had drank two 44oz of water! Woo woo!!

For dinner, I made some chicken (much better than lunch lol!) and put dehydrated onions over it, garlic salt, this spike seasoning & it was so good!! I didn't have a veggie or a fruit with it, but I did have more chicken for dinner, since I didn't have any for lunch. 

I'm on my 3rd 44oz of water....hope I lose tomorrow!!!!

Skinny By Summer HERE I COME!!!!

I'm starting my HCG again!!! Excited & nervous at the same time.  I don't want to "fail" like I did last round.....I didn't fail, I just didn't give it my all! This round I decided to do injections (shots) instead of the drops.  Not because I think the drops are better, I really don't know.....I just want to see if they work about the same as the drops.  I am hoping they are more "potent" but I've heard from some people they are, and some say they are not. We shall see. Wish me luck!!!! :o)

I started my first loading day yesterday. I had a Pork & Rumbi Rice Bowl from Rumbi's for lunch, piece of cake, brownie, diet coke, ice water, big tub of popcorn (of course I shared) at the theater, some junior mints, 2 soft tacos & a crisp bean burrito for dinner and about 3 krispy kreme donuts.  I also had a snickers bar....probably more sugar than I should have yesterday.  For those of you who don't know.....loading (for this particular diet) means loading on HIGH FAT foods.  Today, so far I have had appx 2 cups of chocolate milk (9g fat per 1c----eek!) And 2 krispy kreme donuts!! I am going to LOAD today like I've never loaded before!! I do NOT want to be hungry this first week & I want to WIN this thing!!!

My goal (which I hope I don't accidentally repeat myself every post...but I apologize now if I do) is to lose 30-40 lbs this round.  40 is a pretty big stretch....but I think it can happen, guys do it so why can't I make it happen!?! LOL Men do lose more weight than women, but I'm going to try my hardest & keep thinking SUMMER!!!  When I lose 30lbs my reward is to get my navel pierced....NO I'm not gonna wear tops that will show it is something for the minute I lose 30lbs, that weekend I will get it done! :) I can't "WEIGHT!"

I was really good about "journaling" my notes here, on my first round.  I am going to try & do the same this round.  It helped me a LOT to keep myself from cheating.  I am so excited & I know I can do this, I hope I'm ready tomorrow because tomorrow is the first day of VLCD (very low cal diet)!!!!!

Losing AGAIN :)+

So...I've been doing Hcg again, since the beginning of the month. Haven't blogged about it, because I've not done my best. No sense in blogging about cheating every once in a while LOL.

I am determined NOT to quit though.  I have a lot of things to look forward to this year!!

Today I lost 1.6!! I've been sick, so maybe that's why...but I was pretty happy this morning!!! :)  I hope to continue to keep on losing!! :)

A non-diet post :)

Christmas time is around the corner, therefore I have to be somewhat festive & use a little Holiday Cheer (color) :) Yippee!!

The other day, my cute friend Kristie came to my house to see me. Mind you, (not to throw a pity party) my friends don't everrrrr come up my way, so it was a very *nice* change!!! Thanks, Kris!!!

Anyway, we had plans to go see Blind Side & go to dinner....we decided to get some shopping in too.  We went to the mall & walked around, it was just fun.  We decided on Outback for dinner, YUMM-O :)  We had our salads & steaks, chit chatted & decided to walk around Target before our movie.  The movie was REEEEEEALLY good!! It was 2 hours long, so kind of a long time to sit in the theater seats, but still a really great movie.  I loved it! :)

We got in my car, to take us back to her car at my house.  I'm driving on the freeway, the roads aren't icy or anything, but still kind of scary.  If you know Utah...there is construction EVERYWHERE!! When they said 8 years of construction, they really meant 15!!! :) So I'm driving cautiously (speed is 55mph) and I'm going around this curve &  see this car speeding SO fast behind me...they get into the fast lane & are just roaring. I'm like "idiots" and keep driving...then I see ANOTHER car speeding even faster & I'm like "Where are the cops when you need them?" and as this second car is flying by, I notice it's a PO!!!!! Boy oh boy!! My blood is racing!! It's like I'm running a marathon!! I'm SO excited!! And hopeful that the cop is going to pull that speed demon over!!! (I'm not a perfect driver myself, I've had my share of speed-fests...but not in this weather) I saw that the first car got into the slowest lane...and the lights on the cop car hadn't gone off yet...I couldn't see the cop anymore and I thought I saw the car get off at my exit.....I'm like darn. And I get off the freeway and the car is being pulled over!!! I literally SCREAMED!! YES! YES! YES!! Like I had just won the lottery, for crying out loud!! I'm in the wrong career!!! :) I was SO happy about that..... Later my friend called me & said that car was being arrested. Well that just made my entire night. Peace be with you my fellow Utahn....I hope whatever it is you were running away from, was worth it. Some people!!! :)

Ta-ta! :) <3
