I want to be a Size 10 again

My miracle cure was just not working out and I dont' feel like forcing myself to maintain 500 calories anymore. This was regarding the information I read in "The WEIGHT LOSS CURE" by Kevin Trudeau. I met a women last month who have lost 15 lbs. in a month by taking hcg shots and she said she would have lost 30 if she hadn't "cheated" (meaning eating things not on the 500 calorie plan).

My miracle cure was just not working out and I dont' feel like forcing myself to maintain 500 calories anymore. This was regarding the information I read in "The WEIGHT LOSS CURE" by Kevin Trudeau. I met a women last month who have lost 15 lbs. in a month by taking hcg shots and she said she would have lost 30 if she hadn't "cheated" (meaning eating things not on the 500 calorie plan).

I was pretty psyched and felt I could do this if it meant losing quickly and being done with it! But after going on it a few weeks, and not succeeding more than a week following such a strict diet, I decided I need something I can follow but not want to cheat so much. Even when I eat more or a regular diet, it's hard not to cheat. I feel I have been spinning my wheels forever and getting bigger no matter what I do. I really feel my hormones are totally out of whack. So I had said earlier, if this hcg diet didn't work, I would stick with a low carb plan, and South Beach is supposed to be easier than Atkins ... so here I go!

I just logged on to Spark for the first time since June. (of last year)? I lost my job last October 2008, and have been trying hard to get another one. It's almost been a year now ... and still trying to get a job. Hello to Jibbie! Sorry I have not even peeked at this, but need to start journaling again to get the weight off. Don't even take time to go to the gym .... I've become obsessed with getting hired! But now I know I need to start doing this ...
Will see what happens!

Hey, Beauty, hope you are doing well. I'm still working on my goal, but am up 13.5# yet so am working to get it off. I'm going to do the HCG Diet soon and so I'll be able to drop these pounds then. emoticon

I just had my first SPARKVERSARY and I'm thrilled. This second year will be my best.
Hope your South Beach Diet is going well. I see there is a NEW one out at the book store. emoticon
