Times a Tickin’

17 Oct

It’s been a while since my last post but I’m down to 25 days till the wedding!! I’ve tried (not really that hard) this past year to diet and exercise, to no avail really. I guess I didn’t take it seriously until we got our engagement pics done. When the proofs came back, I was horrified! I have yet to show anyone outside my family those pictures. I don’t even recognize myself. A re-do is definitely in order!!

Then I started thinking, is this what it has come to?? Do I really want to see my wedding pictures in the same light?? I’ve been reading up a lot on HCG and decided it’s extreme, but people seem to really think it works, so I went ahead and gave it a shot about 26 days ago.

Since then I’ve lost 12.8 lbs and some inches (pics below) While I was VERY craving (not starving) I did cheat on the diet twice. But my tastes have changed and the cheating wasn’t even worth it!! (except for the margaritas…those are always worth it!) Now I’m in maintenance phase for the next three weeks, so the true test comes while I can slowly start adding fats and oils to my diet. I’m also supposed increase my calorie intake, which I’m finding hard to do as I’ve grown accustomed to the 500 calories. I decided to not go longer than 26 days as I really want to stabilize prior to my honeymoon, but I definitely would LOVE to keep losing the weight! Anyway, you guys look at my pics below and judge for yourselves. I have nothing to sell here, but it worked for me. Would I do it again? Hopefully not. I hope to take the lessons I’ve learned these last few weeks and apply it lifelong. Even if I fall off, I’m not sure if I’d do HCG again, or take the slower route, but honestly who knows? It has been the only thing that has worked, but it is also the only thing I’ve really put effort in to. The “normal” route was working, albeit a little slow for my tastes!
