HCG should I or shouldn't I?
Thursday, February 14, 2013
Two co-workers have lost a tremendous amount of weight with the HCG diet injections. And it's really tempting. For 65 dollars a month, plus the cost of a doctor's visit, I can loss a pound a day. Tempting. The research on Spark people tell me that it's bogus, that the hormone does nothing to your metabolism, that 's it the very restrictive 500 calorie diet that causes the weight loss. but it's tempting. As is the green tea, or raspberry ketones, or vinegar to right my blood sugars. Desperately seeking a cure... but is it a cure? I want to be healthy, and being 150 pounds overweight is not healthy. But I am overweight because I eat to much, don't exercise enough. The days that I gain is because I had a 3,000 calorie day. Drinking green coffee bean extract wont solve that. The injections wont give me the disciple to stick to a diet where I eat 3 pieces of fruit, 6 oz of protein and a serving of vegetables. I need to figure out the why of the overeating, and correct that. But I have tried everything, and I am still 150 pounds overweight. I've tried therapy, prayer, supplements, and spark people for the past year. I've tried medifast, protein, atkins, south beach, cabbage soup.. searching desperately for the cure for what ails me. maybe I am looking at this wrong. I need to figure out the night eating, I need to learn portion control, I need to make healthy choices and I need to exercise. When I have those answers, I will lose weight.
it's easy to get discouraged, what I need to remember is that I am 45. I didn't get this way overnight, I've been dealing with food choices since I was three. I am better healthy wise than I was a year ago. It's the journey, making each step towards improvement, and enjoying the steps along the way.
