Journeyings of an HCG Diet

Wow. A resurrection to the blog. Don't all gasp at once. (All 0 of you that are likely looking. ;) ) I just figured it would be fun to document my daily journeyings on the crazy HCG diet.

I'll be honest. Over a year ago when I first heard of the HCG diet, I thought THAT's NUTS! Granted the temptation of being able to lose 20 pounds of fat in 20 days was ever so enticing, I never really put more thought into it....mainly because of the cost and the shots.

So I'm visiting teaching the other day and my partner, the bishops wife, begins speaking about her diet. Lo and behold she and the bishop are on the HCG diet. WHAT? REALLY? Not only that, our Fotoplay photography partner and wonderful friend Jen is also on HCG as well. Welllllllllllllll then.......I might just have to look into this cause if the BISHOP is doing it, then it must be okay! ;)

Research, research, research and MOOOOOOOOOOOORE research. Cause let's be honest, I'm not about to submit my body to something dangerous or unhealthy.

Finally.

Convinced.

This is okay.

And at such a fabulous price? I can't say no!

So many of you look at me and say, "you don't need to lose weight, you look great." You know what? I'll be agreeing with you. I do look pretty great for a mom of 5. But that's just it, I hate the tag line "for a mom of 5", cause I'll be honest, it doesn't really make me feel any better that I haven't been able to shed this gut. However I will be the first to agree if you look at me from the front, or the back? Well, it ain't too shabby!



But from the side?



ICK!

And for those of you who know me, you know I'm not an idle person either. I love to run. I mean I reeeeeeeeeeeeeeealy love to run. Look...this is me just after a race.



See! I do! I love it! But truth is, as crazy as I am about exercising, I just haven't been able to lose that belly fat. Granted, I have all too often splurged on foods that I shouldn't, so by forcing myself to have healthy eating habits at the risk of gaining some serious pounds if I do not follow protocol while on the HCG, I do believe is exactly what I need!

So this,




and these,



are my new friends.

I'm not saying it's going to be easy, and I'm sure there are days that will flat out kill me this first week, but I have already given my kids full permission to put me into time out if I get too hangry.




Cause I want this



to change to this



so that when I am one of these



I can be happy and healthy and enjoy every moment!

ROFLOL, funny post though with all the pics! Especially the last one, hee hee.

I procrastinated for about 9 months about losing about 7 lbs. Man oh man, I went on at length about it. Went back to WW and am getting it down. I have tried nearly every diet in the world and for me this is the only one that seems to work. About 90lbs down now and weighing in at 145lbs. Still want it to be 140 :-(.

I wish you a healthy time on this diet. I hope that you get the end result that you want. If anybody can do it, it's you!

You're right...I think you look great just the way you are. (Wish I could look like you.) Hope this gets you where YOU are happy with how you look. Glad your back blogging again. One day down...

Yikes, don't put so much pressure on the bishop and his wife. :) You're going to do awesome. I've got to do it again in a few weeks. I really did like losing (only 10 and I really needed it to be 20...or 25) fast!
