  1. When will I gain all of this weight back, and more?

    by , August 28th, 2011 at 06:46 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    I have not been discussing my weight-loss plan with anyone. When someone asks how I am losing the weight... I just respond that I am focusing on eating lean meats and low-carb veggies and drinking a lot of water. I don't need naysayers making me doubt myself -- I doubt myself enough on my own. I can't help wondering... "When will I fall on my face and gain this weight back (like I did after Weight Watchers)??" Because I know that everyone thinks that when they finally lose the weight ...

  2. Phase 3 -- I miss sandwiches... but I have found a suitable substitution for bread.

    by , August 28th, 2011 at 06:19 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    I am eating the most delicious sandwich ever.

    I made my almond flour pancakes, but instead of adding vanilla or Truvia (sweetner)... I added salt, garlic powder, and onion powder. When I dropped the batter onto the griddle, I sprinkled a little dehydrated minced onion on top of the batter... browned one side, flipped them -- browned the other side, and viola -- a bun!

    Then I grilled a piece of chicken breast... topped it with avocado slices and muenster cheese. ...

  3. Shopping for clothes is usually depressing.... but not today!

    by , August 27th, 2011 at 09:07 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    What a day. Worked in the morning (7-noon)... and then took a much needed break reading (The Hunger Games) for about an hour... showered, picked up my Mom and drove all over creation looking for something to wear in my sister's wedding this October. Then I had to take my Mom home.... which added 40 minutes to my drive. Ugh.

    But the thrilling news about my running around today: I FOUND A DRESS!! Thank God.

    I was so sick of looking around... even though I really ...

  4. Just because it's Sugar-Free doesn't mean it's Calorie Free!!

    by , August 18th, 2011 at 04:58 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    I lost my mind today. Really - I did.

    I got in my car after eating a lovely lunch in the office at work... and I drove to the grocery store... and I bought a bunch of "Sugar Free" CRAP!

    I don't know what is wrong with me. I have been very anti-sugar-free stuff for my whole life. I don't like the artificial sweeteners. Those chemicals can't possibly be healthy. The only exception that I have ever made is for chewing gum... and then on HCG I found out ...

  5. Round 2, Phase 3... I should know how to do this....

    by , August 17th, 2011 at 09:27 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    I should know how to do Phase 3.... I just did Phase 3 back in June -- but I seem to be forgetting the basics.

    1.) Don't add a lot of stuff all at once.

    **On my first day I added bacon, almonds, and cheese! Second day, Fage and Ranch dressing. Silly, silly girl.

    2.) Amp up the protein, decrease the sugary fruits.

    **I am obsessed with strawberry smoothies. Not so obsessed with meat.

    3.) Don't eat food you don't prepare ...

  6. Horrible night -- worse day -- can't possibly cry any more.

    by , August 14th, 2011 at 05:48 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    My dog escaped from the yard sometime between 9 and 11 pm last night. I still cannot figure out how he got out. The gate was closed, no holes under the fence, and he has never been able to climb (not even onto a kitchen chair). My other dog was still in the yard. When I realized he was missing, around 11 pm, I hooked my other dog to her leash and started walking the neighborhood looking for him. We walked 6 blocks north, cut 3 blocks across to the west, then back down to my street... then switched ...

  7. Completed Round 2/P2 -- Before & After Pics -- 67.4# lost!

    I started out this journey on April 4th of this year. I weighed 277.4#... and I know that I had weighed even more than that before but had not the courage to get on the scale. What I didn't know couldn't hurt me, right? Wrong. I came down with pneumonia in January and never really recovered my strength after weeks of being too sick to get

  8. Why do I believe in HCG? Why don't you?

    by , August 11th, 2011 at 09:27 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    Back in 2003 and 2004 I did Weight Watchers. I was awesome at Weight Watchers. I followed the program to the letter. I read my pamphlets -- I ate the appropriate number of "points" each day -- I weighed in when I was supposed to and never any other time. What did I get? Almost no boobs, a very gaunt face with dark circles under my eyes... and a net loss of 35 pounds. 35 pounds in ONE YEAR. I would lose 2 pounds in a week and gain back 1 the next week. And when I finally got fed ...

  9. Should I extend my Phase 2 until I am out of HCG?? I don't know what to do!!

    by , August 10th, 2011 at 09:30 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    As I have said so often that people are probably tired of hearing it: This Round has been TOUGH. I don't think I've been hungrier or more tired or anything like that; I've just been mentally beat to a pulp by this Phase 2. I keep second guessing myself.... "What caused me to lose this day, but gain this day?"

    Children's Camp was impossible... and although I may have lost "okay" -- it was a week of sketchy meals (sometimes just one meal a day, and by "meal" ...

  10. Round 2 : Starting Phase 3 again on Sunday... & I'm nervous!

    by , August 9th, 2011 at 06:15 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    I can't believe how much I have forgotten about Phase 3. Luckily, I sent my sister some instructions about How To do Phase 3 -- a mixture of stuff I found online and personal experiences. I'm going to post it here so that I can read it every day between now and when I officially start on Phase 3 again.
