Hi, My name is Kimberly. I decided to blog about my journey to a healthy me. At present I am 50 yo, I weigh about 225 lb (edit...down to 185) I am 5' 10" tall; Re-married Mom of 2 wonderful "boys" (24& 25). I work as an executive assistant, have a fabulous Husband and life would be perfect if I could just learn to budget, get my bills paid and reduce my size by about 60 (edit: 20 more) lb!

I'mmmmmmm Back!~

Ok so it has been said once you do HCG you can't lose weight any other way.
I had my back go out again and have been super lazy because I was afraid of hurting it again.
But I am see a specialist and going to exercise again.

So I joined TeamBeachbody, I have some shakeology, and bought the Cize videos and am following 21-day fix.

I will keep you posted on whether or not I lose weight.
I am loving CIZE. so much fun and I am sweating without being in pain.

Exercise is slowing my losses

Weird huh? they say Don't exercise on this protocol, and I see why.
But I really don't have a choice, I have to train for this 2 day walk.
So I am probably going to cut this round short. I will do a full 30 days. then hit P3 and really stick my weight and stabilization.
Then once summer kicks in, I will do a final round.
today I am at 191.8.
I think.

My scale has been acting weird, I changed the battery and still I can step on it several times and get different weights.  I go with what ever one it gives me more than 3x consistently.  it's annoying to be unsure of how I am doing.

I THINK I am down 11 lbs.

I'll take it!

Finally broke the stall

Wasn't really a Stall per se, more of a Time of the Month hold.
I didn't stop taking injections except for one day this time. It didn't seem to make much of a difference except I gained on one day.

I am down 1.2 this morning. Woo Hoo.

I have lost about 10 lbs in 16 days. less than my last round, but I didn't have the TOM hold during that round. Hopefully things will even out with some bigger losses.

But like I tell anyone on this protocol, A LOSS is a LOSS even if it is 0.2 lbs!

WOW it's been a while

So I haven't been blogging on here in a WHILE - so lets get back to it!

I have a Facebook page that I love = HCG Support.
I talk allot there and stopped blogging, but for the sake of myself, an anyone else that wants to follow this protocol, I am going to start keeping better track of thing.

I have kept the weight off for some time. I never did get to GOAL weight but pretty darn close.
I would like to lose that LAST 23 lbs so I am back on the protocol.

In May I am doing the 39 mile walk to end breast cancer. so I want to be at the end of this first round before then so that I don't need to watch what I am eating so closely AND I dont' need to take my HCG with me. So I will be on P3 during the walk, and complete the 2nd round to get to goal after it is over.

At the moment TOM is visiting and I have stalled for 3 days. hopefully tomorrow brings better losses.

I will update again then with current weight and such.

Have a Fantastic DAY!

Went on a Mental and Physical BAD Vacation

So I stopped watching what I was eating. Emotions kicked in and instead of using all the tools I have learned over the years about not letting them get the better of me. I decided to act like a child and just not give a damn.
Hubby and I ate out at least once every week, or ordered take-out.
I guess I needed to get it out of my system since I have been GOOD for so long.  Also all this SNOW is depressing! and I didn't feel like cooking or shopping. so I didn't.
In the Month of Feb. we had Wendy's TWICE...( I haven't ordered from a fast food joint in 3 years!)
Pizza twice. KFC..grilled but still KF freakin C!!!!  can you say mashed chemicals in a Styrofoam container topped with fat!!! Yes I think we can!!!   And just last week we had Thai food twice. (ok that wasn't too bad since it is mostly veggies and no MSG, but still I didn't make it)

So this week I got back on the scale and I am up TEN pounds. Yep. My little tantrum and having the attitude of a 5 yo gave me 10 lbs I need to lose.

I am going to Exercise and eat right and see how much I can take off on my own.
I may do another round of HCG. but first I want to see how far I can take this without it.

Don't get me wrong I LOVE the protocol. it works!  But I have heard from allot of ladies that it is REALLY hard to lose weight after the Protocol.
I think it may be that losing weight is JUST HARD no matter what. and we as humans have no patience. so I am going to give it a go, track my food, drink more water and get my BUTT in gear and start some exercise again.

And awaaaaaayyyy we go!!!
