I know I would not have made it if I didn't have an apple to bite into and whimper... Oh man, that food looked so good. At other times I was cool because I was thinking how much I really want this. I really want to see 163, 174 first and at the end of this round 163! Even if I have go a little longer. I really want this and I am done playing!
No matter the scale says tomorrow I am going to have a reasonable dinner tomorrow night after I wrap up my apple day and then following day I am going to have a steak day.
This is no time for me to waiver and fall back into old behavior like every other time, as recorded by my journal. I know the only way I will make it through this is to put my head down, read the Anderson Method, and stick to the plan until something happens period!
I am so grateful to have shed 17-19 pounds in less than a month! I am looking forward to losing more when my body and I get it together. I trust the process of life.

In being open, honest, and accountable I am still asking how much of this is me. I have been drinking lots more wine than my calories allow lately, and I have not been eating my meals like I am supposed to. Yesterday, I had an a few strawberries; I never finished my morning allotment of strawberries, I had cabbage for lunch and the rest of the day, nada, except of course wine.
Now I'm not saying the wine is going anywhere I'm just saying it shouldn't be a freakin' meal! And I definitely shouldn't be drinkin all my calories. Okay, there I said it. I had a good talking to with myself... Hope it works :)
If after today, which I KNOW is going to be a day I get my azz into gear, I am still at 180.2 I will do an apple day.
I had two people notice my weight loss today. It was a good feeling! Gotta keep it going though, can't let the train get stuck at 180.2! I'm out to CURE the obesity in my life, me and good ole Dr. Simeon... and a few of my most wonderful lady friends!
It's super early here on the West Coast, I'm posting earlier than usual. Im going to get some water (need to kill the hunger pains, I didn't eat dinner last night ) and go back to bed... I have a long day later today.
They were SO GOOD, even I was surprised. I did try to go prepared. Food and some cartoon downloads from itunes and they were good!
I did a good job of packing food for myself but not a great job. I started out on a bad foot since I was so hungry so soon in the morning from not having dinner. I stayed on plan though... mostly; I had a thigh instead of a breast that was what they had and I needed to eat or fail altogether from being hungry. No excuses, just reality showed up. Not being fully prepared means putting myself at risk.
Still working to get fully back on track. I look forward to getting back to losing. I especially want to see it go away in my waist. One of the amazing hcg weightloss ladies did hula hoop while watching television or something like that, I think I might try that. We'll see.
I'm am grateful for today, lots of wonderful experiences, no big cheats or huge goof ups, my children were dynamo, and my reflection was kind Thank you Lord!
Super duper prayers the scale will be kind tomorrow. Help me break through Lord! And bless those that have real problems. I am grateful. Amen.

I wrote this in response to a client having a tough time making it past three weeks of their new diet and fitness program. I hope this helps all of you see that you are normal and give you a roadmap for your first month.
It's common in week three of anything we do we hit a wall. Weight loss, a new hobby, a new job all take about three weeks for the newness to wear off. It's normal!
In the beginning of your fitness and fat loss journey everything is shiny and new. You are excited and you have new tools and a renewed focus. Week two, you are going strong and proud of your success and typically "reward" yourself with a splurge or a day off from exercise. You haven't even formed the habit of your new lifestyle, but you are flying high! Week three, you feel the workouts, the calorie restriction, and you don't see 20lbs falling off your body so you get discouraged. TOM might even be settling in for a quick visit. You suddenly realize this is going to be a long process, but you feel like you are working hard for what? Four pounds? You probably also have had a chance for your family and friends to get tired of your efforts and then they start pulling at you. Here comes that little nag in your head, "Hey, you ate that one meal and it didn't hurt, do it again."
You put all that together and week three turns into backsliding into your old, comfy ways. The key is stay accountable and focused. This is where your Forum journaling and your PNP buddies come in handy. It takes loads of accountability and honest feedback from other girls in the trenches to form the habits needed to push forward with a new lifestyle.
Week four...the clouds part and the angels sing. It's time for your four week measuring day! When you make it one month and work your plan, you will be rewarded with inches lost. That is your prize. Make it to this point and the whole lifestyle just gets easier.

No loss this morning. I know it is possibly my body's adjusting, but just in case it's not the adjusting thing, I will pay close attention to my food and what I'm adding to my food today.
I know TOM is lurking and my BM was very small compared to previous days so there seems to be a few factors to consider for the no move in the scale. It's interesting how it is exactly the same number as yesterday.
Also I did get my 2 liters of water in yesterday. The joy of running to the bathroom.
This is my new regimen:
7:30AM hhcg 15 drops, combo+B (PPH, Metabolic1, vitamin B)
12:30PM hhcg 15 drops, Only
5:30PM hhcg 15 drops, combo (PPH, Metabolic1)
10:30PM hhcg 15 drops, combo+B (PPH, Metabolic1, vitamin B)
I plugged the times into my cell phone calendar so it will remind me ;0)
Setting my self up for success.
The post I got the new regimen from was as follows:
"I am in my first round of HHCG drops, and without looking at the calendar I'm close to being around day 23 or so. I am down 23 pounds and only had hunger for the first couple of days. I work really hard shifts of 12 hour days for two weeks and then 12 hour nights for two weeks so my doctor put me on 4 doses per day of 15-20 drops per dose. She said my akward sleeping patterns was throwing me off and that extra dose has really helped with hunger and weight loss.She originally had me set for a 41 day cycle saying that was as long as I could go without running the risk of stalling due to body creating a tolerance to it. I think I am going to be so close to where I want to be at the end of the 41 days I am going to try to stretch it out til I hit my weight."
What I plan to eat:
Evening ReportFor dinner I had fish and strawberries. I purposely decreased my calories today because I want to be on the right side of losing weight. The calories still added up to 446, so it wasn't that much of a decrease. I got my 2 liters of water in today.

I have half a liter to go in my water adventure and I've had dinner but I'm still hungry!! Maybe it is head hunger, if it is, why does head hunger feel like belly hunger.
I'm headed to have some
If that fails I am going to have another apple which will put me about 55 calories above the 500 mark but at least it won't be chicken pieces and fries.

By the time we were headed back from getting the glasses I was done; tired and hungry! My son was like, "Wendy's" and I was like, "Okay." The pictures in the drive thru were too much for a sistah to handle. Sad but true.
I'm not sure why the hhcg is not curbing my appetite but it's not. Tomorrow I will be back on top of it and see what I can do to work it out so I am more successful.
Up until the incident I was doing good. I maybe should have went home first, ate, then went to get the glasses. I don't know. I was going to grab some coffee too before the drive thru incident but I was like just get home and it'll be cool... Not.
I'm going to have a talk with myself while I'm sleeping and we'll be back on the right path. Pray for me y'all.

It was interesting to experience trying to do something on purpose and realizing I used to do this unconciously before now. Let me explain, after dinner I went on CalorieKing.com and looked up how many calories and fat I took in because I wanted to make sure I was loading enough fat grams. When I looked up the meal there were 1440 calories in it, that doesn't include the calories from all the other stuff I ate with the meal like bread with butter, soup, and wine! OMFGoodnes!!!! But what was worse is the thought that I've done that before now and not looked up the info or had a second thought about how many calories I just shoved in my mouth.
To top off last nights experience, the chapter I am reading in The Anderson Method talked about eating consciously and not puting anything in your mouth without knowing how many calories are in it. The chapter had more to say and I'm leaving out a really good story he shared before mentioning calories but ultimately the point I got yesterday was how much unconscious eating I've done... that was a big WOW for me.
I think I will practice the art of calorie counting (conscious eating) while I'm taking this journey and make it a part of what I do from now on. It was a good lesson to read in Anderson's book and to experience.
