The week is almost over

Friday, March 02, 2012

I had a week of same and down. There had been no weight loss on Monday or Tuesday. I checked inches and it was only a .25 inch for most of the ole body. So Wednesday I had a partial Apple Day. What I mean by partial is that I ate four apples with the intent of eating the final two for dinner. But it didn't quite work that way. I had forgotten about a munch (get together of liked mind people) at a Mexican resturant. I hadn't been to one in ages and there were a few people that I wanted to hang out with that I haven't seen in awhile. So I went with my husband excited but dreading the menu. Sometimes it's hard to explain to people that you can't just dived into a big plate of steaming hot food. And waitresses especially don't like it. I learned at a Mexican resturant you can have iced tea but not hot tea in Nashville. I settled for water with lemon. I don't know why I couldn't just drink unsweetened ice tea. I was being difficult I guess. I read and re read the menu with the apples fading slowly into the background. Then I spied side orders selection. I asked the waiteress if the grilled shrimp could be done without butter. She looked confused, went to the kitchen, and came back with a yes. The shrimp was about the amount I would have had if I made it myself and I cut it up in very small pieces so I could eat with the other grown ups. Because I was eating, no one questions why I was having such small portions. I had a great time. And the bonus was on Thursday morning, I lost 2 pounds. This morning was another 2 pounds. So I am getting there with 15 days left to do the hCG.

A former co worker of mine saw me and told me she was going to do hCG. She was confused on how to do it. So we spent about an hour discussing the do's and don'ts. I agreed to be her "mentor"/supporter while she does 20 days. I suggested to do 20 days first because it's her first time. I advised her that if on her 20th day she felt that she could do the whole 40, we would work together to get her through the last bit.

Well, I am off to work and then to another very busy weekend. Hopefully on Monday, I will be able to report that I am once again under 200 pounds. I am very hopeful. Have a great weekend, Everyone.

Not enough sleep

Monday, February 27, 2012

This past weekend was non stop. Not enough sleep equals no weight loss but a gain. :( Oh well. Not letting that stop me. I did 30 minutes of walking today with a co worker. Still keeping my eye on the prize of getting slimmer. LOL

Had a friend tell me this weekend that I don't need to lose any weight. I love that man. LOL

Day 21 and down 17.2 pounds

Friday, February 24, 2012

I had a hard past week. Emotional week that is. I think I was seriously PMSing hard. And with Valentine's Day. Ugh. Chocolate is the temptation of all women. Well, at least me.

I am back on track. Walking at least 30 minutes a day if not 45 minutes. I love my work walking teams. There is even a running group that I am hoping to build up to.

I have bands at my desk now. So during the slow times, I will slip one on and either work my arms or legs. No one thinks wierd of it. Our CEO has one of those pedal gadgets under her desk and works out before and after work. And she looks awesome.

My co workers have noticed the weight loss. Especially since I had to start pulling up on my pants. LOL

Company Pizza Party Cheat

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

For the past few weeks, I have been "taunted" by all the special foods the company has been bringing in for the employees. Usually I have been able to escape it because I don't go into the lunchroom.

Today however, it was a close department pizza party meeting. A small room with 8 different types of pizzas. SIGHS I have joined a walking group here at work that has been very supportive with my hCG diet. Even though I held off on eating my large apple until 30 minutes before the meeting, the pizza smell was getting overwhelming. I was misberable. I got the okay to just take two small slices of pizzas from the leader of the group. But she put her foot down on me when I picked up a beautiful chocolate cupcake with chocolate icing sprinkled with white chocolate curls.

She said, "I am your friend. I know you have goals that you are striving for. I would not be a good friend if I let you put that in your mouth. Put it down now."

LOL

I told her that I hated her but will love her tomorrow. We hugged and smile.

Lesson of the Day?

Friends don't let friends with goals and diet eat unhealthy foods.

Yes, the pizza counts as unhealthy but we take the wins with the losses. I know tomorrow's scale will make me go straight again.

    A good friend indeed. I'm glad you put the cupcake down. Your friend may have had to tackle you to the floor, ha. WTG on making the right choice.

Doing well so far

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Just posting to give an update. I really have to get back into posting every day. But I thought this would be a good time because it's the dreaded Valentine's day filled with chocolates, candies, and all sorts of fattening foods. My job is having a potluck today and tomorrow there is another pizza party. It is so testing my strength and will power.

I am on R3D11 and so far have lost 15.4 pounds. I am fitting back into my size 12 jeans without having to suck in the gut or lay on the bed to get them on. LOL. It's a big reminder of what I am trying to do. I have been a bit hungier at night but that's because I am not going to bed at the nine o'clock. I did have two cheat days which I thought that I was going to see a stall for doing so. I had gone out on Saturday with friends with the intention of going home and to bed at 9 PM. Nope didn't work that way. I stayed out until 1 am. By 11 pm, I was feeling dizzy and weak. I had to do something and the only things that were around to eat where junk but I took a small handful of jellybellies and five preztel sticks. Within 30 minutes, I was feeling better and was able to finish the night having fun with friends. That has taught me that I need to keep some fruit in the van so that if that happens again, I can at least have healthly instead of all the sugar.

I was thinking of posting a video that I had done just before my car accident. It's just sitting on the laptop. It was kinda of an angry post because of the way people that I liked were being forced to go into hiding just because they were doing the hCG diet. Going to give myself another 24 hours to make my decision.

That's all for now. TTYL

    I agree with Jibbie, you're doing this for yourself and no other. Use that delete button, it's very empowering to make negativity disappear.

    I wouldn't bother posting that video, since you just need to work on yourself and NOT let the HATERS get to you about the diet. Keep your post coming.
I am sure you got feeling weak since you stayed out to one and you needed that snack with all the activity. BUT, you are right about keeping GOOD snacks in your vehicle. An Apple or Orange would have done you for a "pick me up."
