Round THREE, Prep Phase

Rate this Entry
It's been several months since my last maintenance phase update. It's true....most people don't get on as much because they don't need the support on a daily basis. Out of site, out of mind. Wish I had accountabilit through maintenance phase though......My goal was to keep all the weight off, well this is what acttually happened.....Summer happened, we had many BBQ's and hangouts at our lake, dinners on our patio, BBQ at my sisters, get togethers, we had our house remodeled from July until currently....we are on the home stretch. When the tress got dropped, the yard got grated, the floors got torn out, I also started my new job, and we also found out my dear brother (in law) had testicular cancer. He was found barely breathing, unconscious and he has been in a coma over 1 1/2 months now. My twin and I are so close, I think I have emotionally dealt with it all for her...she is numb. I turned to food in my sadness, and pain. I have also turned to God in prayers, and a few friends. Mostly God, and food. Funny how I wanted to lean on God before so I didn't use food as a drug.......but this has really been a hurtful, emotional time watching my twin lose her loved one. He is currently in ICU in Seattle, they are praying that his brain wakes up, so he can start his long road to recovery. My heart breaks every day. There are days of joy and happiness, but I can feel someone is missing. Even writing this brings tears to my eyes.

So.....I was 119lbs when I finished Round TWO....I haven't weighed since. I've had to go from a size 0/2, to a size 4. I'm pretty happy with how I've kept a large portion of the weight off. BUT, because of the bad food choices, I am back to feeling moody, sad, tired, bloated, constipated and low self-esteem.. Although each of these areas have largely improved since the beginning of the year, I have known in the back of my head when I felt ready to let go of the dependancy on food to deal with our family loss......I would gladly use HCG to help me get to where I want to be.

Our 11 year anniversary is in February, and we MIGHT fly to Hawaii. At 115lbs i felt comfortable by the water in whatever I felt like throwing on. I would like to be at that place again.....no matter what size/weight!

First TWO rounds I gave myself permission to lose as much/little weight as it wanted. And in return I would follow protocol strictly, love myself if I made a mistake, and enjoy plateaus knowing they would break! Join me on this journey...along with TWO great friends who live locally, we all go to church together, and share life, and family views. Last time I did it alone, so I am excited to have peeps to share my triumphs with who will see my on a weekly basis. How about you? What are you plans to start your round?

I am going to wait until after Xmas when I can get a good handle on the meals/plans/limitations. I MAY load Xmas Eve/Day if I feel up to it. Would love to hear from any of my old buddies! And news ones too!

    I am in my last two days of VLCD right now, but I wanted to reach out and say that I am so sorry that you have had so much stress as of late. I'm glad you have some HCG partners this round! I think it would be great to have friends also on protocol so I would have someone to eat with. Good luck with your losses this round! Your picture is beautiful and I'm sure you will get down to where you want to be!

    Hmmm well if the bikini was the blue color I don't think I'd mind at all!
