I can't eat that....Day 1 of 500 Cal's is my FIRST HCG + 500 Calorie day!!! I'm almost to my full day!! I know to some, it may sound silly (to be praising myself for one day of 500 cals), but I LOVE eating!! It's my 2nd favorite thing to do alongside traveling!! They go hand in hand!!! :)

I have felt a bit hungry today, but I heard that is common.  I am thinking it may be me thinking too much about not being able to eat. I didn't realize how much I liked food, until "I can't eat that" I hate to pat myself on the back too soon, but today I was presented with a few work, someone brought in muffins. If they had been blueberry muffins, it would've been harder for me to walk past them.  They were apple crumb....that made it easier :) I looked at them & thought to myself, "of course...the first day and treats!!" For all of you who don't know me so well, I LOVE anything with sugar in it!!! lol. But I didn't look at them twice & went on with my day...I ate my lunch and I enjoyed it!! I savored every bite & it was delicious. I had chicken, a tomato, a grissini (a tinsy breadstick, very thin...) and an orange! Yum!! I could eat that every day, it's the portion I have to get used to. My 2nd temptation was at home, I am starving today...really hungry! Like I said, it could just be in my head.  But I come home to open the fridge & see the leftover cheesecake...and I said NO WAY am I going to ruin my day by eating a piece. That would be ridiculous! So I shut the fridge & here I am typing..  HAPPILY :)

I LOVE inspirational quotes!!!! SO are two to end this post...

Day 2~ Still "Loading"

Today is my last "indulgence" day!! Scarrrry!! But also fun & exciting!!! I really haven't been indulging too much, I'm sure I can make up for yesterday with a few calories today :) Today my jaw has been hurting (not due to the hcg of course) and has set back my optimism a level or two, but I will be on track and ready to roll (Literally! losing the rolls lol) tomorrow!!! Thank you for all the support I've been getting by you guys!! I truly will need you during this process and I know I can count on you!!

Let me just tell you...the HCG...well...whoever told me it was flavor-less was lying!! Jk Connie!!!! lol. It smells and tastes like VODKA!!!! (Not that I would know lol) But...after the burn under my tongue goes away, I am back to normal!! Okay I'm exagerating just a titch..but it truly is not tasteless!! :) That's okay, if it helps me achieve my goals...bring on the BURN!!!  Burn baby burn!! :)

I feel like I may need some fabulous quotes to get me along, thank you Sherra for sharing the one yesterday!! That was great!!! If anyone has any that they would be willing to share on a weekly basis (I'm sure daily would be asking too much & I should be dealing out the quotes here!) that would rock my boat!!! I will share some too as I find them!! And they don't even need to be about dieting.....this can just be a fun thing to share with friends & family!! Who doesn't love positivity & optimism!?! I'm pretty sure I couldn't name a single person.

I plan on finishing my day with a a nice piece of pumpkin cheesecake (leftovers from my traditional bday dessert) & something very delightful for dinner!!! Ahhh... I CAN do this!! :) Until next time....keep on curvin :)

Think Thin ~ Day 1

Hello there!! I've decided to start a "diet diaries" blog.... I am going to try really, really hard at writing religiously!! I am at a point in my life where the lbs just keeping making their way onto the scale & it screams at me!! I don't do "diets" but it's time.

I'm sure many of you have heard about HCG...well that's the one I'm doing!! There are shots & drops, I am doing the drops. They are much cheaper & I've heard they have the same effect. For those of you who have not heard about this diet, it is a 500 calorie diet. Yes, I know what you're thinking! (Is this girl crazy?!) I will let you know at the end of this journey :) I am thinking very positively & know in my heart I will be much happier when this is completed.

Day 1 is also a "gorge" day...meaning, you take the drops (I am doing 15 drops, 3x a day) 30 minutes before I eat. So, today & tomorrow I will take the drops & eat regular food. The protocal says to eat more fattening foods, because you won't be getting much fat at all on this diet. A week before this whole thing, I did a "cleanse" to get all toxins out of my system and kind of start fresh! :) It was nice, I've never done one before & I recommend it to anyone. The one I used is called 10 day cleanse. My Mom actually told me about it. She and my sister are doing this with me. I think it will help to have them as a support team! :) I've also found out a lot of things on facebook. I added YourHCG to my friends on facebook & have talked with some really great people who have helped me get excited to start this change!!!

I will gladly take any tips, from those who know about this diet from experience. I am new to this & hopefully I can shed some light to anyone who has thought about this diet. I do, however want to think of it as a lifestyle change, rather than a diet. Just because a diet sounds SO boring!! lol. Like I posted as my title for day 1, think thin!! :) I've heard this quote a few times & would like to share it: "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels" And I know that will keep me going if I think about it often!!

I will try & write at least once a day (maybe more) and hopefully not less!! Any support will be greatly appreciated!! I need all the positive support I can get!! I CAN, and I WILL do this!!
