Results of First Week on HCG

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to do this. I tend to quit when the going gets tough, but surprisingly, this hasn't been too bad! I've actually stuck my tongue out at the brownies in the fridge and have been able to turn down offers of food and candy at work. I was anxious about the lunch that I was going to for Administrative Professional's Day today, but the restaurant was extremely accomodating and I was able to enjoy my lunch. As an added bonus, the restaurant was right next to Harvest Market, so I was able to swing in and pick up some chocolate Stevia (yummy), Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar, Braggs Liquid Amino Acids and organic / unsweetened cocoa. Can't wait to see what I can make out of the HCG cookbook!

My two lifesavers so far ... homemade applesauce with Stevia and cinnamon and garlic shrimp. Both are awesome!!!! Even the kids love the applesauce!

What I've realized this week is that I have let food control me. I'm not really eating because I'm hungry. I'm eating because of habit or boredom. Oh, and I really, really, really, REALLY just love the taste of food. That is something, unfortunately, that I get from my father. This is going to be the hardest thing to get over ... eating for pleasure.

Now on to WEEK 2!!!!!!! Whooo Hooooo!!!

    Great job sticking to it! I wasn't sure if I could do it at first either, I'm only on day 5 but it's actually becoming a nuisance to eat- weird!
    Your results are motivating for other newbies like myself.
    Keep up the great attitude!!

    emoticon That is awesome. Half the battle is knowing the problem and how to correct it. I realized the same thing during the first week. It's amazing how much I ate just because. I hope this will be a life changing event for me and my husband. There is a lot of good information out here and a ton of support. Keep up the good work. Remember, it's not a sprint.

    Take care...........Beth emoticon
