    I'll take it and run with it, even if it's going to take me a little while longer to reach that elusive "virgin fat territory."

They should've come yesterday but he didn't have them so we planned a meet for this morning! Planning to finish off the cheesecake today and undecided on dinner at this point, thinking mexican or KFC.
    Yum - cheesecake!!! Good luck loading - half way there!!

    the party last night went great - I stuck to water and cucumbers -- it didn't go unnoticed but I didn't care and eventually the foodies left me alone .... "are you getting all skinny on us?" what what one of my very overweight friends said as if I was taking off her right arm to feed to dogs .....

    my mom and dad have come - my mom has brought bins of jelly beans which are a very hard thing for me .... temptation is a part of life - I just need to deal with it

    I am not sure how often I will get on this weekend with company - I am hoping they will all go to a movie tonight so I can study by myself ... we will see .....

    take care everyone, Lee-Ann
    Yep, that's how life is - temptations before us and the choices we make about them!!! YOU CAN DO IT!!!

    Dreamed I ate 2 pieces of pizza last night. Felt so guilty (though it was delish)! Was very glad to wake up and find I hadn't actually done that!!
    WhooHoo!!! Hope you keep forging through those fat mines!!! It's funny - so many posts about dream and I NEVER dream...hmmmmmm.

    The 'impressive' losses are usually men or people with much more to lose .. you are above the .5 to .6 a day average and doing amazing!! You go look in the mirror right now and say it "I AM AMAZING" .. cuz you are girl!!

    Lydia I didn't mean to say I NEVER eat a yolk .. and when you said corned beef hash with poached eggs my mouth turned into a river! Food ****! Yikes! Yes, I do have an occassional yolk and of course cook with them .. just don't have them normally as they sometimes give the tummy the queasies for whatever reason.

    CelloGrl woohoooo for 20 pounds ... would love to catch up to that!

    Abinco You are so amazingly supportive of everyone, we are lucky to have you with us!

    Morticae So glad you are on the mend and doing so well with your weight! Hard to stay positive sometimes when we are ill, but that stability in your body will help with that!

    Lost half of what I had marked to reply to .. Natalie, Alexis, Leslie ... you are all so beautiful and doing so well ... big hugs to you all!
    Happy Scales to you ..... Pam

    Thank, Pam! I'm very happy with my results so far, actually. This is the first plan I've EVER done that has me losing so fast with so little suffering.
    Started my HCG journey on March 16, 2011

    Just for the record, no part of this journey is for the weak.

    I have not adopted the habit of doing personals yet and feel kind of bad about that. But, I do read most if not all of what is posted. I appreciate what each of you has to say and am pleased to learn of your progress. You have been a blessing to me in these past weeks. I am down another 1.2 today and am pretty pleased. I too know of no other program that would yield these kind of results. I have about 4 ladies that I know that are going to start HCG because of what they have seen take place in my life. Which brings me to the following thoughts:

    One of the greatest aspects of this diet is "HOPE". Just over a month ago I was looking at buying larger clothes because the seams of what I had been wearing were beginning to scream. There was just no hope that I would ever go the other direction. I have been so sedentary and was just creeping up and up in my bulk. Just no hope for a better day as far as my health is concerned. Just no hope that I would be able to enjoy some of the simple things in life again. Or, no thought of not being relegated to sitting on a bench while the rest of my family was able to enjoy various activities. Just no hope of returning to a normal life. Or, deceiving myself by saying "Oh, you guy's enjoy the amusement park (or the mall, boardwalk, etc), I just want to hang out here and watch people!" Or some other such nonsense. It is almost like the reality was so bad that it was easier to create a new "normal" way of life rather than doing something about the reality of my life. Just no hope for it to get better and being resigned to an ever declining quality of life. No Hope. At least in a physical sense.

    I have been very active mentally because I could not be active physically. Since 2006, I have earned 3 post graduate degrees and am half way through with my Doctorate. I could do this, because I was not doing anything else. My excuse would be that I was not mentally lazy, just physically lazy. I now have "Hope", that in the not to distant future I will be able to amble about freely as I used to. For various reasons, I resigned the Church I pastored a year and a half ago. I have been patiently waiting for my next position; keeping busy at my home church. In my profession, I have a lot of credentials. But, who really wants a Pastor that is 500 lbs and needs to sit on his rear end all the time? Hope! I now have hope that in the not too distant future, that will no longer be my reality. I can see a time, where I can return to a normal way of life; which will allow me to more easily return to the work I love doing. Hope!

    How did I ever allow this to become my reality? Oh, it first started with a back injury when I was a young man. I was a big strapping man who could do the work of two people with ease. One day, I picked up something that was even too heavy for me and tore a muscle in my back. Ever since then, every time I would work hard I would end up on my back for a couple of days. I was a nice 6'4" man with a 36" waist. The next thing I knew; I was buying bigger pants! Then I needed 2xl shirts! Before long, I ended up needing to buy bigger and bigger clothing and began fooling myself that shopping online was more convenient; never-mind that the stores don't carry clothes for what Dr. S referred to as a "Colossus"! Hope! I now have hope of being able to return to a normal way of life even when it comes to something as simple as buying clothing. Hope.

    What about longevity? I have a wonderful loving relationship with my wife. She has never treated me with anything other than loving respect. But, She was sure to be a widow much too early. She made a remark to me last night about my size and loss that revealed that she also has a new hope where I am concerned. My oldest son looked across the table last night and said that my whole frame looks smaller. He said this with a smile on his face. He is proud of me for undertaking this. In a little over a month, hope is dawning in my life and the lives of my loved ones. I have wondered many times "why" I was here in Tennessee; waiting. I think that now I know why. Perhaps this time in my life was meant for this tremendous undertaking that is bringing a renewed hope to me and my family. I still have a long way to go as you can see by my ticker. But, I am certainly much further along than I was a month ago. Because of this new hope, I can see a new day on the horizon in the not too distant future.

    Forgive me for rambling a bit this morning. Perhaps many of you cannot identify with what I am talking about. You might not be able to, unless you needed to lose over half your body weight. If that is the case, please forgive me for wasting your time. However, some of you can identify with me. So, for me and you, I say this diet finally offers hope of a normal way of life for us. Hope for a better life. Hope for being able to participate in life rather than watching it as it passes us by. That motivates me; I hope it motivates you too.

    Jeff

    Third day in a row that I'm at 215.6 -- good that I'm stabilizing -- but wish I could be better and drop the extra that's above my ALDW. I guess I'm going to have to go home to do that! Once I'm home I can do the high protein with nothing else around to tempt me or make me want to eat what I know I shouldn't be eating. I'm not doing very well on this round -- if I could figure out what I'm doing Easter weekend I could start planning for loading that weekend, but I am waiting to hear from my son about his plans with his wife to see if I'm watching my grandbaby that weekend or not! I'm way behind on reading posts, but thought I had better put something up about me before everybody thinks I'm hiding or something! Hope everyone's having good rounds, and good losses or stabilizing well -- enjoy your weekends!!

    Jeff, Thank you for sharing. Interesting about your injury, I started my weight gain after a badly broken leg full leg cast for over 7 months and having Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever at the same time. My body was never that same after that.
    Like you said we have hope now, hope to be the people we really are. Katrina
