HCG and Semen

Ok ladies. Dr S. mentioned that semen might be bad for you while on the HCG diet. It seems that the average dose equals a teaspoon of sugar and 20 calories. Sorry boys but I would rather eat a cucumber for less calories and no sugar :)
A little HCG humor.

Plus Size Controversy

I never considered a size 10 to be a plus size.

Plus model shocked ât photos made her skinny

Despite her recent weight loss, plus-size model Crystal Renn says she was shockedâ when she saw photographs taken for an ad campaign that were retouched to make her appear thinner.

12 pounds down. Along with being ex static at my losses. I have had a physical setback.
While on vacation in Italy I had a terrible toothache. Upon arriving home I forgot about it as the discomfort went away. Lo and behold after biting into something it just crumbled. I should have been taking the supplements and I ha vent grrrr. Dentist appointment in the morning and hoping I can get it capped. (I think its called an eye tooth. Not all the way in front but enough that I wont smile big) Upside I ordered my supplements and they came. I don't need any more side effects of rapid weight loss. I'm hoping for a cap or if all else fails Ill might go for veneers. Either way I am hoping and praying they can help me :)

Back for Another Round

Started another round yesterday. We took two weeks and went on vacation. Had 10 wonderful days in Italy. I weighed myself to see if I would gain. I decided since I was in my home country there was no way I was going to be on p3. I totally intended to eat anything I wanted. And I did. I discovered that my Italian food tasted better lol. Though I enjoyed it immensely. We walked at least 5 miles everyday. We toured Rome, Florence and Venice. I ate Gelato about 4 times. It was awesome. The best ice cream I have ever ate. I was worried I gained weight while gone. But thankfully with all the walking I lost 4 pounds. It was a wonderful time with my husband and son and his girlfriend. My husband and I have plans to go back without the kids. Maybe some romance then :P I will have to post pictures later as blogger is being squirrely right now and wont let me.

Summer is Here

Bought for the first time in years two summer dresses. Halter type. Well Im not skinny enough for me to wear out in public but I did plan on wearing it around the house. My son saw it on and is not used to seeing cleavage and bare shoulders on his mom. He didnt like. He was like "you have got to be kidding" lol O well teenage son didnt like but my husband did. I did wear a skirt along with muck boots to till my veggie garden. My employees got a kick out of that. Girly kinda lol.

Half Way There

last night went to my son's ballgame. I thought I had totally blown it cause it was 40 degrees out and windy and I was so cold. So what I do I had me a cup of hot cocoa. I thought surely I had blown it. But I didnt eat dinner that night so I woke up to a 1.8 loss and reached my 50 pound loss mark! So now Im at 50.8 pounds gone forever.Im very very happy. Started Monday with injections and its friday now. And I have lost t he 5 pounds of loading weight and an additional 6 new pounds lost. Not too bad considering that stupid TOM showed his face. I hope this continues but if not my goal is 25 this round. That wont bring me under 200 but very close. Then after our vacation in June I can do another. Im very excited to think that by the time summer is over I could be another 45 pounds lighter if not more. I so want to be a healthy weight. Along with the health the cuter clothes and cheaper lol.
Good luck all my fellow losers.

R3 D4 :)

Woke up with another 1.8 pounds lost. Whoot! 49 pounds to date gone forever :) Looks like I will reach my 50 pound mark tommorow. Im hungry and feeling tired like I want to sleep an additional 4 hours. I guess I will drink some water or hot tea until lunch. Like expected TOM showed up. Seems I always get it the first week on HCG Oh well. Im at that age I cant really say when I get it cause Im not regular. TMI lol
This too shall pass.

O Happy Day

Happy Day. Day 3 of VLCD. Load weight all gone and lost an additional 2.2 new pounds.
Having trouble consuming all necessary water. Yuk. Miss my Crystal Light Lemonade.
Not hungry just trying to stay away from food.
Had to cook later for my family cause of baseball. So they were eating breakfast type meal @ 7 pm consisting of Eggs, Bacon and Pancakes. It smelled realy good. O well I had my chicken earlier in the day with an apple and a cucumber.

The best way for me to be successful is for me to keep busy busy busy!

Here We Go Again

Tomorrow is first day of R3 VLCD. Biting NAILS. Planned on doing load days this weekend as we were going away for the weekend to celebrate our 20th anniversary as well as his 50th birthday. But went and forgot to pack the shots. O well I thoroughly plumped up the fat cells anyway. So far and the day isn't over and I gained 3.5 pounds. Ouch. Had to be the potatoes and ice cream and chocolate covered cherries mmmmmmmmmm I will pay for it this week. Not worried though. Did the measurements and it seems a few things have shifted once again. Not to mention almost 3 inches gained. It will be gone by the end of the week. Only problem is TOM should show up any day but Im not going to let that get in the way. Im ready to lose another twenty. I have hardly any clothes to wear but happy to report I can wear an 18. Thats a biggy for me. Haven't seen that for over 10 years. The weather is getting warmer and it isnt bothering me. Another blessing about losing weight. trying not to spend any money on clothes right now. I will shop before our vacation in June. By then I should be in a 16 and my daughter said she has some crops and stuff for me that she cant wear anymore. But what a bummer I will have to buy a few nice things :) Wish me luck on losing. I have been absent but doing well on maintenance. Actually was down a half a pound of my LIW before the binge.

Here goes everything. :P

Things I Learned While Riding my Bike

1. I am not very coordinated. I can trip over my own feet and fall out of a boat into the lake lol

2. I am out of shape way more than I thought.

Yesterday was just down right beautiful. Finally got up to 60 degrees. So earlier in the day we went to the big town to get the kids passport pictures. And I bought my helmet for the bike. My son said if I tried it on in the store he was leaving Ha I tried it on.

So after returning home. I cleaned out the flower beds, tilled the vegetable garden and raked out the clumps of debris and then decided to ride the bike. Well needless to say I wont be ready for the road for awhile. I will just ride it up and down my driveway which around my property is a half a mile. So 2 rounds on that and I was wiped out. But the upside is I am more active than usual.

Hevnt Seen You in a Long Time

Love getting a "you look really good".
Husband came home from Haiti Thursday. Had to make an appointment with the doctor for him. Poor baby came home sick. So found out it was an inner ear infection along with sinus infection. But he felt well enough to go to favorite Mexican restaurant. Haven't been there except for once since October and the owner wasn't there. So he saw me and did a double take. New hairdo and I'm not sure he knew it was me(giggles).
He kept staring at me. Saying its been a long time! So after our meal he came over and chit chatted it up for a few minutes. He then told me I was looking good and looked at Jim and smiled. So yeah that made my day.
Holding on to that 45.
And yes I ate some things I shouldn't have. A few chips and a a couple spoonfuls of rice. I found that a little here and there doesn't hurt me nor change the scale but a half a pound up and down and I can deal with that.
Anyway I had a great moral boost for today.

Before and After Pic

Before and Not So After. 4 months of Dieting. Cant believe how fat my face and everything got. O well changing my mindset and changing my future. 45 pounds lost so far and 57 inches gone forever.

Lovers and Others

Couldn't think of a title but figured it fit for valentines day :P

My valentine for this holiday was my mom. She started HCG about two weeks ago and has lost 15 pounds. She is diabetic. Hoping after losing weight she can be done with all her diabetic medications. Well she took a planned interruption to go out with me. So dinner and a movie. Applebees Ribs Yum. I gained a .5 pound from dinner last night but I am so ok with that. So going to walk today do some Pilate's and maybe a little floor exercises to tone up a few giggly spots. Tomorrow back to the pool and the gym.

Got that blasted measuring tape out. So this round only lost 8 inches but that makes a total of 57 since Oct 2009. Amazing how most of my inches were lost on the first round.

So maintaining for now! Good luck on reaching your goals all you lucky losers :)

New Hair for the New Me :P

Husband likes it. I always wait till he is gone before I do something drastic to myself. One day it will be the boob job :P

Staying Alive lol

I was reminded by a sweet email that I have totally slacked off on blogging. Its true. Guilty as charged. super super busy. Husbands in Haiti and we have two businesses with 15 male employees here. So while he is gone I do double the work. Im now on maintenance with a 20 pound loss this past round. Didnt reach my 50 pound goal but happy with losing a total of 45 pounds. Some highlights were shopping for my mother of the bride dress and am in a size 18 dress. So in dresses Im 3 sizes down. jeans are a different story some are 18 some are not lol. Higlight today was water aerobics and then some toning on machines. used the eliptical and some others. Need to tighten up alot. I lost weight in some weird places. ALot on my boobs and underarms lol. Seems like I lost more weight in my upper body than anywhere else. Have not lost one inch on my arms ugh. So one month then Ill do another round. I need to measure tommorow morning so I can gauge what the workout will do. Will promise to post more. It is good for the soul and helps you keep you eyes on the goal and my goal is a size 7. :P

So after an absence of sorts. What is new? Ended p2 of r2 about a week ago. Too much stress going on. Earthquake in Haiti and we have children and friends there. Couldnt handle it and be on a diet. Well ended r2 with a 20 pound loss so counting my blessings!. Only 1 pound over my LIW. Ended r2 short but its ok. I plan on finishing my shots starting this monday after super bowl sunday :) Company coming over. Dinner theatre this saturday so I plan on enjoying myself before I go for another 10 pound loss. Then on maintenance for 3 weeks then back on the protocol right before my daughters wedding. Sounds like a plan right. Lets hope I can stick with it. Trying to reach onederland before the wedding. Crossing fingers :P

Good news is that all of our friends in Haiti are fine. The school we are building is still standing. The only up hill battle is keeping our orphanages stocked with food and water. But we have come this far so I think we can do just fine. Believing only good things.

Going for the 50

Ok so back on track again. Holding on the 20 pound loss for this round. So 5 more pounds and I reach my 50 pound goal. So 8 more days on the injections then breaking for a week and doing p3. Its my birthday and I need a break. And if and when I reach the 50 pounds I will be very happy and should reach that by then. We had tickets bought for a dinner theatre and Im excited about that. Never been and I can do p3 there. So both those in one week. Then back on the vlcd.
My daughter is having a wedding in April. So hoping I look good

Friday, January 15, 2010


On a personal note. As I dont publish alot of personal information because it is the internet. I felt compelled to say why I have been MIA so to speak. We have had a ministry in Haiti for 19 years. We are building a school on the outskirts of Port Au Prince. We also have 9 orphanages that we support. Not only do we minister to the people of Haiti but we consider them friends.

Needless to say it hasnt been a very constructive week for dieting. Still taking injections but I have blown it a few times. And I have gained two pounds. Trying to get back on track as we are getting good reports from our friends.
So far we have heard from most of the childrens homes and they have not suffered damage. We still have not heard if our school project is still standing. I am hoping so. We also have not heard about one orphanage in Carrefour. Carrefour was the center of the earthquake. Im still hoping against hope that we will hear some good news about the children there.

Just a personal note. I know there are praying people on this site.

R2 D15 20 Pounds Lost

So I set a goal of at least reaching a 20 pound loss on R2. So far I have reached that and it is day 15. I am aking a break February 2 for three days cause we are going to a dinner theatre. I will be ready to eat by then :)I will eat p3 foods that day and then finish my injections the day's after.
I am pretty happy with the way it is going so far. Ive done better than I expected. I only lost 25 on R1 so ya Im happy with 15 days in losing 20.
All I can say is water water water. It helps.
For some reason today at church I got alot of compliments. I guess it takes losing 1/3 of your weight before anyone really notices. Someone even tried to pull up my sweater lol. And I got a skinny remark. (no way near skinny) I am not publishing to anyone Im on a diet. Just a few close people know. But its nice when someone notices :P

Day 11 VLCD R2

"Wow, your getting skinny girl"
That is what my husband said this morning. Maybe it was partially because I am wearing a pair of fat girl pants that I also wore when I was 40 pounds heavier. Its wonderful to be able to moon someone without having to unzip your pants lol.
Only had a 1 pound loss sice yesterday. That might be due to I ate a wonderful taco salad. I used a tomato as a fruit and romaine lettuce. It was great and worth it. I wont do that for another week. Beef and I dont do well on HCG.

Have a great day all my fellow losers.

42.2 Pounds Adios and Never Return

Whoopie 2.2 pounds since yesterday.

I just had to get on and tell that. I am going to go and take measurements. I took them before I started round 2 so Im curious if I lost any inches. I will add those as soon as I know. I have officially lost 1/3 of my weight I need to. My outlook is up. I feel as if I can really do this.

I have taken ugly pictures of my before but I am not going to post them until I have reached my goal. One they are too depressing for me. But when I do lose the weight I will post them for other woman who are at my weight to give some encouragement that it is not an impossible feat.

To think that last year at this time I went into a consultation for lap band surgery. I am so glad I didnt. For one that is saving me 17,000 dollars. I was willing to pay it to lose weight. But I am thankful I found out about this weight loss. It is re-teaching me the proper way to think about food and how to relate to it. On top of all that the benefits of breaking my addiction to bad carbs. And the best part of all the benefit of reviving my metabolism. I think with the yo yo dieting I killed it

Im off to get some paperwork done and to measure.

Day 8

Only had a loss of.4 but Im on you know what. Took a detox bath. My daughter told me about it on the HCG forums. So hey Im up for anything that might help. Baking soda and epsom salt and hot bath for 20 minutes. I guess people use it to detox and to break stalls. I just figured I could use a detox, couldnt everyone. I should have measured today but my planned day of cleaning my husband changed. So off to the big town we went. I only had an apple while he and my grandson at braums cheeseburgers. The smell filled the cab of the truck. Smelled so yummy it made me lose my appetite. Not for the cheseburger but for the apple. Didnt finish it. Upside of the day was that while we looked for end tables for his office we also bought a new bed and dressor for our bedroom. So pretty.

Here is a picture. Then went to Bed Bath and Beyond for the bedding. Happy Birthday to me but its not until the end of the month :)

1st Day

Yes its a new year. Looking forward to a thinner me. One who can actuall do the stuff she has wanted to for a long time. Like go to a beach and not feel like the only fat girl there. Looking forward to this summer. At the rate I am going i should be 80 pounds lighter than last summer. That gives me goose bumps just thinking about it. I havent skinny dipped in so long. Cant wait. TOM showed up which slowed my weight loss down to a pound. But ok its normal. Drinking loads of water and cinnamon tea. Much accomplished today. The HCG seems to give me more energy I think. 6 loads of laundry done. Decorations taking down. A wonderful 45 minute nap now dinner for the family.
Happy New Year all you losers out there :)
