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!

P2D5 Down 1.5

And down a total of 6.5! woo hoo!
I licked the ice cream spoon last night. I couldn't help it!!!  but I did NOT have ice cream so that is a plus.
I made baked apples for desert.  Took an apple, cored it. sprinkled it with raw organic apple cider vinegar.
Then sprinkled with stevia in the raw packet and cinnamon. Wrapped in foil and baked.
It was soooooooo Good!  of course the BF had it with ice cream. LOL. 
This would be a great breakfast on P3 with some granola or yogurt.

Happy Tuesday!

HCG DAY 1! Mixing delemas and solutions

Well I saw so many different recipes for HCG sublingual that I got totally confused. So I am doing injections.
My son is a diabetic, and has a whole box of needles we put away since they came out with the insulin Pens.
So I figured I would just use those, we have 100 of them!

So here is my mix. I decided on 150 IUs per day.
There were a few different directions on how to mix for different dosing. I thought I would go with the smallest amount of injection material (ie: .25cc per day as opposed to a full 1 cc per day) easier to inject.
The instructions said for a dose of 150 IU from a  .25cc injection. You would mix a 5000 IU ampule with 8.25 cc of Bacteriostatic Water or Saline.
My HCG came with a large Seringe 15 cc/ml. and a small seringe 1 cc/ml (I only used the larger one when mixing.)
I sterilized all bottles with an alcohol wipe.
I mixed 1cc Saline with the powder to liquify, swirling gently.
I then pulled 7.25 cc's of air from my amber bottle and pushed 7.25cc's of air INTO the Saline Solution bottle. I then withdrew 7.25 cc's of Saline.
I then injected the 7.25cc's of Saline into my amber bottle.
I then withdrew the 1 cc of liquified HCG making sure not to make bubbles and getting every drop.
I then gently inserted the HCG into the saline in the Amber bottle.
after my first .25cc injection I refridgerated it.

I am now loading...ick. I feel sick actually.  For brkfst: I had McDonalds egg,cheese, & ham bisquit and a breakfast burrito AND a strawberry bananna smoothie. At 11:00 I had an apple turnover and coffee. For lunch at 1:00 I ate a huge plate of eggplant parm with ziti. And I wanted to throw up. I have a huge cookie and soy milk for a snack and I can't bring myself to eat it.
I am going to have a hard time getting down dinner. I am not used to eating so much food!!!

THURSDAY. T-1 day left before HCG!!!

Woot! Can't WAIT for tomorrow to be here. going to start my HCG and my LOAD days.
I plan on going to the grocery and the healthfood store to get:
Avacados,  and lots of Fattening foods for my load days.
SeaSalt, Apples, strawberries and Grapefruits from the organic section. And Raw apple cider vinager and Organic coconut oil from the health food store.  And LOTS of veggies and organic meats.
Getting the house ready for P2VLCD Day 1! which should be Sunday.
Wish me luck!

Oh and on a side note. I will never do an Acai Berry Cleanse again. I felt just aweful and the 3rd day on the pills I had terrible loose BMs. Felt bloated and icky from day 2. blah
BF is on Green Tea Cleanse said that by day 4 he felt really weird. (he didn't explain further) but he quit taking the pills too. I think we will stick with LOTS of water and not take pills.

Feeling gross and a bit of TMI

So I started with that Acai Berry Cleanse. it has resulted in soft stools and I have a weird taste and feeling in my mouth and feel awefull. Didn't take the second dose last night before bed. feel a bit better this morning.
I think I will quit while I am ahead.

Weighed in and maybe because I had cheese and crackers last night before my night job...I am up .5 lb
Drinking more water. not really doing much but trying to eat a basic healthy diet till Friday when I start my load days.
Still looking for a better sublingual mix that does not use alcohol or Silver.

Planning to Start HCG on Friday!

Ok, 2nd full day on the Acia Berry Cleanse Tablets. I did drop a few pounds from the other day. But nothing seems to be "moving" at any significant rate.  Not really worrying about it.
I Did weigh myself today and took my measurements: 233 lbs  
Upper arm (L): 14" 
Bust: 47"
Waist: 40.5
Hips: 45
Butt: 47
Upper Thigh (L): 28 (R) 29
just above knee: 22.5

Wow that hurt to actually write down. ish.
But I wanted a record so that later I can be proud of what I have lost and know exactly what it is.
Until recently I never weighed myself when not on weight watchers and I have NEVER measured myself.
It was enlightening, and lets me know I am doing the right thing in getting myself to a healthier weight and eating habit.

Before Pictures coming soon.

It's Here, It's Here!!!

Now to just wait for TOM to be done...which should be today.  Then going to do my load days Fri. and Sat. and start the VLC diet on Sunday.
I have bought a CLEANSE and taken it yesterday and today...not much going on...drinking lots of water.
Hopefully it will actually do something before my load days.
going to query the group about continuing to use a cleanse during the VLCD.

I am so very excited!

Confirmation and Anticipation!

Have my confirmation of order placed and shipped. Now the anticipation of getting ready to start this new Journey to a Healthier and slimmer me is underway. Going to look into "Cleanses" while I wait for it to arrive.
I am starting my TOM today, so will be done and ready to get started when it is over. WOO HOO!

Looked up Candidia cleanses, but those are mostly natural ways of eating and eliminating all starches from your diet...which I will be doing on the actucal VLCD.
Have not seen anything like a pill or drink for this.

Read parts of Kevin Trudeau's book again and will go over the diet and protocol again this weekend.
Filled in the BF on what I am going to be doing and I have his full support and he promises to help me stay on plan. yay!

OH and I weighed myself today...I know it is my TOM but 236 lbs!!! OMG! it is worse than I thought!
CAN'T wait to get started and feeling better about myself.
See you next week!

Waiting for the HCG to arrive

I feel like a little kid before Christmas. I am so excited to do this new Protocol. I have printed out tons of info. Researched online and now I can't wait to get started.
I am posting the ephiany photo. You know...that photo you finally see and realize how unhealthy and FAT you have become. Any overweight person knows what I mean. I mean I KNOW I need to lose weight, and have done the more water, eating less, but something always come around and you forgo the good intentions and you try to overlook the fact that your clothes don't fit right and that you don't like looking in the mirror anymore.  THIS is the photo that hit me right between the eyes and said GIRL you NEED to do something.

So I have ordered my HCG. I am going to use the sublingual meathod.
I will post my actual weight when I start my loading days and am going to take my measurements and some Photos (oh I dread taking the photos!)
But I want to have something to look back at and say LOOK! I DID IT!
