So I'm back but this time it's not necessarily to lose weight but to just be more mindful about nutrition and exercise. Since the last time I was here, I gained weight and then lost it--finally! I lost 25 pounds on the HCG diet. It was hard. Don't get me wrong. VERY hard but I couldn't have done it without HCG. My body doesn't like to change. For the most part it will hang on to weight no matter what I eat, which is kind of good when I'm wanting to stabilize but bad when I need to lose even a couple of pounds. I've gained about 3-4 pounds since my last round of HCG. I actually tried a second round and lost about 6 pounds but just couldn't get it to get going like I did in the first round, which is typical, I guess. So I stopped because I just wasn't ready/capable of starving again. (Because that's what HCG is, no matter what they tell you.) I've never wanted to be a size 0. I will always be slight squishy. I have no desire to have a hard body with muscles and workout like I'm an Olympian. I just want to be healthy. So right now I just want to focus on healthy eating and moderate exercise. I would love to limit sugar a lot more than I am currently, walk 5x a week, and do yoga at least 3x a week. I want to fit comfortably into the clothes I already own (size 14) and make my arms a little less "grandma-y". Simple goals. Simple person. I'm here because I'm also struggling with a lack of support. (More on that later) and am looking for people who care, people who share my interests, and people who can appreciate the struggle. Here we go again! I'm back, baby!
