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

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 :)
