Basic Information

About prayerfulhope
I'm Ashley, I'm 22, turning 23 in July! I'm currently trying to lose weight (for the 2nd time) with HCG.

My main motivations are wedding dress shopping in May, and then my wedding in November. Most of our guests have not seen me since I've gained all of this weight and I'd like to get back to what I was or maybe even lower before the wedding to avoid the stress that will plague me wondering if they notice and what they think about my current weight.

(My weight gain was relatively rapid...I was 130lbs at 16yrs old, 190 at 18yrs old, and 260 at 20yrs old)

Starting weight for the first time March 18, 2011

Quit after a couple of days.

Starting weight now:

Break through!

by prayerfulhope on April 8th, 2012 at 10:18 PM
288! Finally. I kind of "restarted" because my weight went up to 295.5

Today (Sunday) I weighed in at 288!

VLCD 1 - April 5 - 295.5
VLCD 2 - April 6 - 291.4
VLCD 3 - April 7 - 289.2
VLCD 4 - April 8 - 288.0

I allowed myself a "cheat day" today for Easter but I didn't take advantage of it as much as I thought I would. On day 2 I was craving my usual, pizza and cookie dough. Day 3 I had mild cravings but nothing

Stable & picking a bone

by prayerfulhope on March 30th, 2012 at 12:25 AM
Since my nephews birthday party which was the 24th, I haven't been sticking to my diet all that well. It started with a cupcake, then pizza, and then Mcdonalds. The usual pitfalls for me.

My weight isn't reflecting my diet though. My weight is steady at 292.8! Every single day, I weigh myself at the same time, dreading the number that I'll see on the scale but every single day, it's 292.6 or 292.8. It's baffling! I thought my scale was wrong but Ian's weight is normal on there so

Hanging onto 293

by prayerfulhope on March 23rd, 2012 at 05:37 PM
With AF here, I figured I'd gain and bloat up to 294 or 295 but I'm sticking right at 293...unless my scale is broken which has happened before..It said I lost 15lbs and I was soooo happy (yay no cheating with the atkins diet + gym efforts finally paying off) but nope, the batteries were going dead haha. I was so bummed when I realized that lol.

Wedding Stuff

One of my bridesmaids dresses came in! It's soooo not the color I was hoping it would be. My fault though,

No loss, thanks TOM

by prayerfulhope on March 21st, 2012 at 06:36 PM
No loss to report today, most likely thanks to TOM (aunt flow, period etc) showing up.

I'm doing pretty good with the diet though, have had a few temptations (Mountain Dew sounds sooo good) but haven't given in. I think if it gets too bad, I'm going to figure out the best way to go about cheating without A. binging or B. being too unhealthy. Like, pizza, maybe make a sauce with tomato and garlic, put it on a piece of Melba toast and top with pepperoni (the pepperoni is really what

Back on the losing track

by prayerfulhope on March 20th, 2012 at 06:45 PM
292 even today. Hoping to plunge down into the 80's soon!

Thank you all for your kind words and advice on my last post! I'm doing much better today Hopefully I can continue to do well. I think I just needed to take a couple days to re-evaluate why I want to lose weight and get back my motivation lol.

See ya tomorrow
