Of course I'll keep posting
Yesterday would have felt like a failure a few weeks ago, but it wasn't. Yes, TOM is here for a visit, but I am not counting how many brussell sprouts I should have. I'm using my eyes and smaller plates to "trick" them into thinking I have a huge serving. I had some chocolate and trail mix because my body wanted it. I felt completely satisfied after having just a few and then I didn't even think about the chocolate all night. I think that I have been going about this the wrong way for entirely too long because when I look back at how i lost weight in the past...when people noticed me losing weight, they would ask how I was doing it. Many times, I didn't remember except that I was eating a lot of salad and fruits. So, that is what I will continue to do. I will weigh in once a week to record my loss. I am not in a race. If my body loses .2 lbs a week...that is fine.

I gorged on chocolate last night because I let my fat suit take over. I wanted it out of the house so what better way to get rid of it than in my stomach...sheesh! Oh, well, today is a low day and those pounds will disappear especially after the massive work out I had today. I'm gonna hit it up again for some more this evening. I really am enjoying my wii fit. I run, do super hula hoop, and boxing to get the heart rate up. It really works! Today I had eggs and roast beef on top of a big green salad and salsa. Snack was trail mix with walnuts and berries. Tonight will be a ground turkey burger minus the bun. Have a great day ladies. I will weigh in on Sunday or Monday dependingon when my cycle ends.

Awww, you girls are too sweet! I could eat you up if you were dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate. Oh, dear...I love chocolate!
lol!
Today is a low day. Yesterday was my high day. I was not hungry at all. Cookie for breakfast...i know that is not very nutritious, but hey, i wanted it and did not feel the least bit guilty. Then had a Vietnamese sandwich with grilled beef and veggies and a spring roll. Dinner was salad with grilled chicken and miso dressing. I also had some grapes and trail mix for snackies.

Awwww...thank you so much Sans I feel very beautiful these days. It is amazing how exercise changes any negative feelings we have about ourselves. I have still been practicing Jon Gabriel's method of visualizing my "perfect" body before I sleep and eating the basic 3's that he describes in his videos. All in all, I feel better, have more energy, and my clothes are loosening.

Good morning...sorry i have been missing in action. I contracted a staph infection which took me out for an entire week. Needless to say I packed on some pounds. So, I am back on the losing train. I am running 3 times a week now for approx 2 miles and looking to increase my speed and distance because...believe it or not I signed up to run a half marathon in San Diego to help fight Leukemia. If anyone is interested in donating please let me know. I will add the link to my donation site in my signature soon. Everything is great right now. I am doing well at work and the family is well so not much else going on. I chose to go off of the HCG for my training, but am eager to see how everyone does on their journeys. It's not how you get there...it's that you get there

Hmmm...where to start. i do not really know...today is different. i feel completely in control again. i am not certain how i lost control or what happened to my life except my life took an unlikely turn when my daughter came back to live with me. She is my first born and love of my life. When she left to live with her father it broke my heart in a million pieces. Her life and my life rarely crossed until she ran away while she was living with her father. This happened in 2010. She came back to live with me for good in March 2011. My overwhelming need to protect her pushed me to eat again for comfort and to connect with her. I didn't realize until I began to write this entry; that my desperate need to connect with her caused me to drop my ball and to completely focus on her needs. I'm not certain I believe this reasoning, but it is the only one I can come up with. I also believe that I packed on the pounds to push away my husband who has given me grief regarding my weight since day one. Perhaps if I got as fat as possible he would leave. What a horrible thing to do to myself. i'm the one who can barely walk now, cannot run to save my son's life, and cannot wear shoes with heels. My knees hurt when I climb stairs, i cannot wipe my own ass, and haven't had sex in 8 months. I'm sorry family and most of all...i'm sorry Jennifer for doing this to you. now that we've reached this understanding; let's do something about it!

Thank you my friend. I needed to write it down to ensure that I do not repeat the same mistakes over again. I just took a nice walk with a co-worker. It felt great to get out for a walk.

True and steady is my motto. i certainly do not want to go too crazy with exercise. I don't want to break anything Ahhh..lunch time. I am feasting on a lovely Caesar salad with chicken. 680 cals. It is the first thing I am really eating for the day. I know i should be loading, but i've been loading for almost 2 years
lol!

Just got back from my second walk today. I bought some cashews and a Dr. Pepper 10-I grabbed the cashews for the good fat content. Trying to eat good fats to get ready for my VLCD's. I want to ensure a good first week so I will be rewarded quickly for my hard work. Unfortunately, my job is extremely boring and repetitive so I will really have to work hard at keeping my spirit up when the afternoon hits. That is usually when I want to snack and eat sweets. My office definitely has sweets galore. Candy dishes, pie, and cookies in the break room. Today should be the day that I eat those things, but not really wanting them. All in all the day has been hunger free...especially considering all I've had is a caesar salad and some cashews. I threw away my yogurt because it tasted yucky.

Today is day 2 of loading. I decided to load up this morning on some breakfast tacos. I did not eat enough yesterday. I felt very weak in the evening. The children and i went swimming which always makes me hungry. I am not exactly sure why because if i run or walk...the last thing I want to do is eat right away. However, since I was a small child I remember being so hungry after a day at the pool. I had a small serving of chili with a small peice of cornbread. I was satisfied with that so I stopped my eating for the night. I woke up this morning and weighed myself. I am at 284.6. Which is so crazy because I weighed in the 180's two years ago. This entry will be a reminder to myself to never let this happen again. I haven't been this heavy since I was in my early 20's. Unfortunately, I am not in my early 20's any longer and cannot carry this weight like i used to. I am very afraid that I may hurt my knees, break an ankle, or hurt myself from everyday activity. Yesterday I was able to double my water intake from normal. Today I want to add 2 more glasses. Then i will be up to six glasses of water. Then tomorrow is the big day! VLCD #1. I hope I have similar success as the first time I did HCG.

Thank you so much Gracie. Your goals are amazing! Good for you on reaching them. It seems so far for me at the moment. I try not to think about the big number right now. It took me nearly three years to gain this much weight. So, I expect it to be a slow and steady ride This time I'll make the lifestyle change i should've made before

Just think how much better you will feel in 3 weeks! You could be down 20+ lbs. and much healthier. Take it day by day and just do the best you can.

Yesterday ended well. I think I loaded beautifully. I ended the night with some ground beef chili leftovers from supper the night before. Chili is always better the day after; I think I had a few carby treats but did not go overboard. I didn't get much exercise in yesterday. Unfortunately...I will go on two walks today to make up for the lack of movement yesterday. There is so much going on this month...moving, looking for a new job, and new diet. I just hope I can stay the course. My final weigh-in after loading day 1 and 2 was 287.6. So I went up a pound. Probably from the three beers I had last night. Oh how I will miss my beer So I grabbed two apples from the house and plan on eating one big meal when I get home. It hopefully will stop me from eating poorly when I get home. Tonight my DH is preparing some P2 chili. I cannot get enough of that stuff. It may save my life since I am a creature of habit and like restriction. Well, I don't necessary "like" it, but if I do not have a strict diet...i tend to go more my way which I have seen does not work for me. I slept very well last night and looking forward to today's losses

i just read this article and it really motivated me, it's long, but well worth the read:


I'd like to tell you about the time I chased a 61-year-old woman who was running around the world. Her name is Rosie Swale Pope.

On October 2, 2003, a year after the death of her husband, Rosie stepped out the door of her home in Wales and headed east. Her intention was to run around the world. By the end, she had run over 20,000 miles in 1,789 days – a feat she says is the longest unsupported run in world history.

I discovered Rosie when I saw a photo of her passing through my town. By the time I figured out how to contact Rosie, she was already 30 miles down the road. But she was kind enough to let me buy her breakfast.

To get here, Rosie ran the coldest, hardest route possible, through Russia and Siberia and then down through Alaska and across the United States.

For example, here’s a blog post from Rosie when she was in Alaska hundreds of miles east of the Bering Land Bridge:

I am camped in the middle of the mighty Yukon River. The thermometer reads less than minus 60. But somehow you get strength when things are bad, God gives strength to warriors I am told. I am more determined than ever. I should be able to proceed at daylight to Nulato, the next village. I hope to get there in a couple of days. I know everyone (is) thinking of me and I am thinking of you all. The battery is low but everything is alright.”

By the way, Rosie stated the temperature in centigrade. In Fahrenheit, the equivalent is minus 76 degrees. She was running and sleeping outside in those temperatures. She was not running on a plowed surface, or even on a trail. She was running through the wilderness in the dead of winter.

Two days earlier, she sent her son one of her most somber messages:

I am battling the cold; it is minus 45 degrees. I hoping I can keep going, I am afraid to sleep because it seems dangerous. It is a wetter cold than Siberia. Very dangerous and difficult. I am getting there. It is only 20 miles to Kaltag. Deep dark forests, everything is silent, not even the wildlife is moving. Bye for now. Mum”

About a month later, Rosie was airlifted out of the wilderness after she developed frostbite and was forced to call for help. She remained in Alaska, recovered, and returned about six weeks later to the spot where she was rescued. Continuing her run, she moved by the light of the Aurora Borealis.

Then she fell and broke two ribs. She was told to take it very easy. For most people, this means resting in bed. For Rosie, it meant running 15 miles per day pulling all her gear, in Alaska.

When she first set out, Rosie was carrying a 34 pound pack on her back. At one point in Russia, her pack was as heavy as 48 pounds.

Eventually Runners World arranged for Rosie to receive a specially designed wheeled cart – she called it Charlie – that she pulled behind her. This cart was replaced several times as wear, tear, and changing conditions (i.e seven feet of blowing snow and 50 mile per hour winds) required new designs. Her gear weighed about 240 pounds.

"You must do things for other people."

The thing that struck me about Rosie was not just how energetic or athletic she was – both true – but rather how grateful she was. Everything seemed to give her joy: the smile of a waitress, the interest of every person she met, a simple bowl of pasta cooked in the parking lot of an auto repair shop.

“You can’t be happy,” says Rosie, “unless you remember the world is your family. Doing an achievement just for the sake of the achievement makes no sense. You must do things for other people.”

Besides breaking her ribs, Rosie suffered frostbite, had pneumonia, was hit by a bus, was threatened by a crazed knife-wielding man, ran out of food, and slept outdoors in temperatures so cold that her toothpaste froze while it was stuffed inside her sleeping bag.

Rosie said, “The death of my husband Clive from prostate cancer taught me more than anything about how precious life is; how short it can be, that you have to grab life, do what you can while you can, and try to give something back.”

Here's the most important thing Rose told me:

People talk about mind over matter, and I believe in it, but you really have to dig deep. It’s not enough just to think. You have to work past your limits. I actually don’t think that people have any limitations.

“Just go as hard as you can every day,” urged Rosie. She said the challenges keep changing, and the only true enemy you have is yourself.

“In Alaska the challenges were deep snow, no trail and brutal cold. On the East Coast of the United States, it’s all the distractions. It’s just as easy to get hurt because you trip and fall in a pretty town as it is to get injured in the wilderness.”

The next time you have to work late, or you are too tired to rewrite a report and make it perfect, I'd like to suggest you think of Rosie. You already know most of the things you need to do to have a spectacular life. The hardest part of life is to dig really deep, and work past your limits.
