Diet chaos...

Ha! The crazy person in me has set-up another youtube account for my vlogs http://www.youtube.com/user/SpoiledAndGorg

From 7/2010....
Lose weight fast with hCG, keep it off a few months, do another round, keep it off a few months, do another round... This has been my weight loss "solution" and will be my cycle for approximately the next year. I'm good with that. The hCG diet isn't hard, it's just strict. I've got to give it 100% without a single cheat and I cannot fail!

What I do after I am lose it all is up to me...
From April 2010...
Am I down 35.3 pounds from P2D1? Or am I down 31.6 pounds from P1D1? That is the question. I would like to always go by the bigger number. But, ohhh that ticker at the bottom keeps telling me I am a liar. lol Either way, this journey began for me on March 14. 2010, and oh, I have come so far already!

4/25/10 - I have been so successful I have decided to sell it! See my blog post from today or visit http://hcglean.110mb.com/

My story - With each of my 5 pregnancies I have gained a bit more. During my first pregnancy I gained a LOT of weight and never lost 80 pounds of it. I have tried every fad diet, and "lifestyle change" known. Eating raw, exercising, Jenny Craig, Metabolife, Eat Right for Your Blood Type, you name it!

I found the HCG diet through my Nutritionist/Massage Therapist. After intensive solo research, and talking to my doctor and Naturopath friend, I decided to go for it. I am seeing great results! I am not fooled enough to really think I can "eat anything I want after this diet 'cures' me from my abnormal fat", but I am using this as a proven diet to lose the weight, from there it's up to me.

I work for a major Healthcare provider. I am going to school to become a PA. I am a wife. I am a mother. I am a sister. I am a daughter. And I think I am sassy, smart, fun, and sometimes a bit too emotional.

I hope to really go a long way with this. I plan to continue making my vlogs on youtube (I am OregonPhotomomma) to document my weight loss as well.

Thanks for following me!

    Hi! Wow! how time flies when we're having fun!

    I've been really busy and enjoying the festivities of the Easter season (which is my favorite holiday by the way) and now I'm about to get ready for some over night company that will be here in the early afternoon tomorrow then we will be getting ready to go to the coast for some fun and relaxation. When the sun comes out...I go out! It's great!

    How about you? Have you been busy or are you getting ready for BBQ season/summer which will be upon us very soon now!

    I read that persimmons have high levels of fiber, potassium, magnesium, calcium and antioxidants which are all super weapons against atherosclerosis! Who knew?

    Have a great week and a great Mother's Day on the 8th!

    I just read a cure for bad Mondays!

    It said that when you're feeling groggy or foggy to sniff ground
    sage for an energy boost. Research showed that sage aroma
    suppresses the enzyme acetylcholinesterase that prevents the
    brain's ability to feel alert and happy! Not only that, but aromatherapy
    experts say sage can improve mental focus AND memory!

    My personal suggestion is...fresh ground or a good brand of coarse
    ground sage. The cheap stuff is very offensive to my nose.

    Have a great week and remember to stay focused!

    emoticon Hello again, I'm back to see how you are doing and to let you know I'm thinking of you.

    Here's my tip for today:
    You can't be happy all of the time; but you can focus your thoughts on happy things such as family, friends, job, hobbies, or whatever you find important.

    Sparkpeople has a great selection of positive articles and comments, here's one of my favorites: http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/quotes
    I hope you have a really great week!

    Hi, it's been a while since I've stopped by your page to check on you so I thought I'd take a quick moment; how are things going for you?

    I read somewhere that one lady stacked empty butter cartons on top of each other as she lost the weight so that she could see what it looked like. Now I picture every pound of my excess weight as a brick of butter; which is also pure fat. So any weight I lose, I mentally stack in the corner of my mind to remind me what it looks like.

    Hey... Keep reminding yourself how hard you worked and that you deserve to lose for your efforts; and by all means, keep on keeping on!

    I'm just passing through this time with this strange bit of trivia...

    You're not going to believe this, but I just read that chewing gum is a brain booster! Seriously! The Researchers at Northwestern University found that people who chew gum have increased blood flow to the brain and an increase in cognitive performance. Moreover, people who chew gum have less stress, which protects brain cells from stress related hormones. The researchers recommended chewing gum particularly when you have challenging mental work to do.

    Who knew?
