WOW, okay my last post was in December and man what a difference a couple months can make! I was doing great, exercising, eating better, slowly continuing to lose the weight and then the s**t hit the fan. My husband and I lost our car in January, we moved on post and because this is the largest military instillation OCONUS and CONUS we we're pretty much S.O.L. at least as far as transportation was concerned.
We've been relying on the friends we have here to get us where we need to be, but there aren't any gyms close by (there went my two hour a day regime) and walking as a workout can only go so far. I tried the P90X workout and found it to cumbersome, it has 12 different CD's.
Any who February came and there I was again at 235 pounds, YUCK!! I refused to be defeated!! I have a naturally bigger frame, SO WHAT!! That doesn't mean I've ever been one to sit on the couch and eat ho ho's and bon bon's all day. There is NOTHING wrong with a naturally curvy frame, but the norm for my body type is a 160 pounds not 235. So what did I do???? I stopped the excuses and stopped letting the stress of my situation get to me. I scrounged up my little pennies and bought a product that I've researched for the past almost four years, HCG!! So far I'm so glad I did.
I started the HCG protocol this past Monday (yes it took me some time to get started this stuff isn't cheap) and on Friday a friend of ours brought over a scale (no we don't have our own scale, said isn't it lol) I hesitantly got on not knowing what to expect although I could feel some changes in my body, I told my hubby to look for me, "WOW" he exclaimed, I immediately assumed he was toying with my delicate emotions lol, but he wasn't!! TEN pounds in one week!! Let me repeat TEN pounds in one week!!!!!! This stuff is like liquid crack in a bottle lol, but much healthier.
Now of course it's no miracle cure for fat, you have a strict diet to follow and you have to drink 67 oz of water and or natural tea a day, but I haven't been able to exercise and I've still lost the weight. Please don't get me wrong, when we get another car, which will be very soon, I'll be right back in the gym working my tuckus off, or at least making it tighter lol.
I know I promised to keep a monthly blog about this, but now I mean it, I'm so stoked and motivated. You should read some of the success stories, they're amazing! I can't wait to see how much I weigh in at the end of the 45 days. (which is the maximum you can take it for without taking a break from it.) Well, continue to wish me luck. Oh by the way as of this Friday I'm 214 pounds. My measurements are now 42DDD-42-43. As you can see my baby gut is my most troublesome area, but that's going away, quickly!!
Until next time, ciao!!
