I have had my morning coffee and walk already..I know, it's 11:23 a.m. but I have been reading up on everyone's blogs and drinking my oh-so-delicious morning shake, and just now getting around to posting!
It was so beautiful this morning around the neighborhood. Birds were chirping..flowers blooming..fresh air was..so delicious! Yes, air can be delicious..thank you very much. For any of you lovely ladies or handsome gentlemen who are following my weight loss stats..woohoo..I am at..well just go over and click on the page over to the left and you will see for yourself. (hint: the one that says weight loss stats)
My mom is doing very well..she is on the hcg diet..and so far has lost a total of 19.5 lbs..in 3 weeks. This diet is utilizing hcg drops and eating no more that 500 calories a day so it is very limiting and restrictive. The hcg and limited calories work in tandem..allowing your body to use it's own fat to burn for energy..thus the huge weight loss. I am doing it the hard way and in the three weeks she has lost 19.5 lbs, I have lost 3 lbs.
This just does not seem fair to me..but I am probably just being a big ole' baby..right? I mean, here I am eating less and better I might add, as well as intentionally exercising most every day! So forgive me if I am a little
Although..I am learning every day how to eat the correct portion sizes and this is important to continued and successful weight loss..at least that is what I am told, I will stick to it and not give up..even though I would love to start this hcg diet now. I promised my hubby that I would first learn to eat right and make it a habit..then if I still wanted to, I would try the hcg diet, sometime around June/July of this year.
So all in all I am not doing too bad, and I can say that I am proud of myself for sticking with it so far! I did read something interesting this morning about rewarding yourself for weight loss, one lady suggested buying a charm braclet and adding charms to it for every 5 lbs lost..I like it! I could almost buy two charms already, yay me! Oops I think I just gave away how much I have lost so far..Oh well..that's life. Have a great day ya'll and please leave me a comment or two before you mosey on along!
